Romantic massages are all about setting the stage. Once your partner (and you!) truly relax, the rest is all about luxuriating in the foreplay of massage. Touch is one of our most powerful sensations. If you also combine your massage with scent, taste, aroma, sound and sight, it can lead to an unforgettable experience.
When setting the stage for a romantic massage, it is important to remove all external noises. Turn off the TV, make sure there are no listening ears or crying children. Romantic music is a plus, just be sure you do not have any annoying commercials on your playlist which can kill the mood.
The pleasure of looking at your partner and having your partner look at you can be quite stimulating. However, removing one’s sight can heighten your other senses and make for an even more stimulating experience. Blindfold your partner during massage, maybe even restrain their hands and feet. The idea that your partner cannot see what’s coming and is completely at your mercy will be an incredible turn on for both of you.
It goes without saying that your room should be pleasant smelling – no dirty sock smell allowed! However, take your partner’s preferences into account when selecting a massage oil or candle. Do they like fruity or citrus flavors? If they are overly sensitive to scents, you may want to try an unscented massage oil. Pheromones are added to some products that can make you and your partner more sexually appealing to each other.
Have you ever tried a flavored massage? Incorporating flavor into your massage oils can lead to a tasty treat for you and your partner. These can be a little sticky, so we recommend using the flavored oils on those erogenous zones you want to put your mouth on!
Obviously the most important aspect of any erotic massage is the touching! Begin with small amounts of oil and gently rub your hands together to warm the oil and your hands. Use gentle but fairly firm strokes. Make the strokes long and firm using flat hands following the contours of the body. Caress with the intent of transferring energy.
Add more oil only as necessary. Remember that more oil is not necessarily better, but a dry massage is unpleasant. Use long strokes on limbs and back, introducing a wide circle movement on the back and also on the stomach.
If you are massaging with one hand then lay your other hand on the recipient’s arm, back or leg with firm but gentle pressure. – Back massage is the most soothing, whilst legs and feet are sensual for some and off putting for others. Ask your partner about the sort of pressure they enjoy or where they need more or less massaging. For some, a face-to-face seated or standing co-massage may be delightful and very sensual – each one massages the other mirroring the massage
