So you're treating your girl to a night in, are you? A romantic night between just the two of you could be just what you need to put you both in the mood.
Dedicate the evening to totally taking care of your lady — focus on meeting her needs and hitting all her erogenous zones during the massage. If you go into the night with a selfless attitude, it's pretty much a guarantee that you'll be rewarded by the end of the evening.
Check these steps on how to give a sensual massage that will leave her wanting more — if you do everything right, you'll be thanking us later.
Set the mood
While you might think a candlelit scene to be bit cheesy, setting the mood is actually one of the most important parts to this sensual massage.You don't have to make a path to the bedroom with scattered rose petals, but you can do little things like dimming the lights, lighting a few candles and playing some throwback sexy jams to set the mood. (Ladies can't resist a little Al Green, just FYI.)
She'll appreciate the extra effort you put into making the night special, and she'll be instantly at ease by her surroundings. Find a comfy place like your bed or a large couch to start the massage.
If you plan on using massage oils (definitely a plus!), take your pick from a long natural list: Hemp, jojoba, hazelnut, argan, avocado, safflower, rosehip seed, walnut, coconut, almond, etc. But know that oil-based lubes should not be used during sex with condoms, as they can erode latex and lessen the efficacy of the pregnancy and STD preventers.
Move to the crook of her elbow
If you've noticed that your inner arm is more sensitive than other body parts, you're not alone. The soft skin is uber sensitive to the touch, which means anything you do will have a heightened reaction.
A full-on massage isn't necessary for her inner arms; simply lightly drag your fingertips across her skin, using oil as lube. If you really want to get things going, use your tongue.
Move to her earlobes
You might be surprised to learn that earlobes are actually one of the biggest erogenous zones — partly because they're hot spots for nerve endings and partly because they're not typically touched.
Start by gently massaging her earlobes with your fingertips (be careful if she's wearing earrings), then gently nibble on them — or lightly blow on them. You'll be surprised by the reaction you see.
Massage the backs of her knees
Have your partner lie on her stomach in a comfortable position — that's where she'll be for the remainder of the massage.
Just like the interior of her elbow, the soft skin on the backs of her knees is a prime location for a sexy massage. Use oil here, but be gentle. Use your fingernails to scratch the thin skin, waking up her nerves — then use your tongue to trace light circles on the erogenous zone.
Move up to her booty
On the way up to her booty, don't forget the backs of her thighs! A quick rubdown before massaging those glutes will let her know where you're headed, building anticipation along the way.
If your girl hits the gym pretty often, massing those glutes of hers will be a huge relief to her muscles. Even everyday activity, like simply walking around, works the glutes. Not only will you get a fun handful, but your girl will appreciate the massage. Silde your palms in circular motions around her buttocks, using some oil but not too much — you still want some friction here.
Finish with her shoulder blades
Shoulders carry a lot of tension, so focus on gently massaging all that stress right out. Outline the space between bones (rather than putting too much pressure on the bones) for full satisfaction. You can gently use your elbow if your girl is particularly stressed out, as that's more powerful than your hands.
Once you've finished the massage, let your hands wander back to the spots your girl enjoyed the most or to other unexplored areas — if you're even able to hold back anymore.
