Intimacy in a relationship isn't all about sexual intercourse. There are many ways to experience pleasure and to give pleasure to your partner. Sensual massages are one way to deepen your connection with one another. Sensual massages can be a part of foreplay or performed on their own as a form of intimacy. Using a massage oil from the Walgreens Sexual Wellness department can add to the experience of receiving a massage and simplify giving massages.
The term "massage" refers to stroking, rubbing, pressing and kneading the skin. Not all massages are sensual in nature. Some people visit professional massage therapists to have their backs, necks, feet, hands and scalps manipulated. These types of massages help to relax the body and alleviate tension, offering stress relief benefits. Sensual massages performed at home also offer relaxation benefits and can be a great way to unwind after a busy, stressful day. While easing stress, a sensual massage can also arouse the body and put a person in the mood for intercourse. You can work petting and sexual touching into a sensual massage, making the experience a part of foreplay.
Massages are typically performed with the hands. The contact of skin against skin can produce friction that makes it difficult to deeply stroke and manipulate the flesh. When you apply a massage oil to your hands or to your partner's skin, the slippery consistency of the oil reduces friction. This makes it easier for you to move your hands and more deeply stimulate the tissue. Your partner may also simply like the feeling of the oil on his or her own skin. The feeling can be very luxurious, particularly if you warm the oil well in your hands before applying it.
There are many types of massage oils available to enhance your sensual experiences with your partner. One of the primary differences between the products is formula type. Traditional oils are thick and can leave the skin very slippery. Some people do not like the greasy residue left behind by massage oil or find the products messy and difficult to clean. For these individuals, massage balms and massage creams are an alternative. These products are lighter in weight and often water-soluble, meaning they can easily be rinsed away with water. Massage oils also differ in their fragrances. You can find many different scents on the market to suit your tastes and set the perfect mood for your experience. Candles with coordinating scents are available to add to the ambiance during a massage.
It's important to note that massage oils are not the same as personal lubricants. Lubes are meant for use on the genitals and help to reduce friction during sex to make the experience easier. Some massage oils are formulated to double as lubricants, while others are not. Be sure to read the product information carefully to determine whether or not a formula is safe to use as a personal lube. Never use an oil-based massage oil as a personal lubricant with a latex condom, as these products can cause the condoms to break or tear.
