playful couples massageSensual massage (also known as erotic massage) is a great way for couples to relax before getting into the main event and is an awesome form of foreplay to usher intimacy into the room. The body can become tense throughout the day from movement, stress and bad posture, so releasing those built up toxins and getting the body prepared for an amazing sexual experience is worth the time. If you are new to the techniques of sensual massage, don’t worry! You can become a massaging pro in no time by following these few simple tips.

When I am giving a massage, I imagine as if my fingers were talking and how they would yearn to give please to the skin they are touching.
