Top 5 "Sensual" Activities

Owl Identified Owl Identified
So we talk a lot about fucking around here, don't we? I'll admit, I have historically been a big proponent of cutting out the roses and chocolates and getting down to business, but lately that has changed somewhat. I am in a long term relationship with someone I really love, and with all the discounts and gift cards I've been stowing away I have suddenly found myself in position of quite a substantial stash of candles, oils and lotions. These things have really made me appreciate how much a little foreplay and sensuality can do for sex.

I'm curious to know your top five favorite "sensual" activities: by this I mean activities that indulge your senses and stimulate them in a way that is decadent and possibly sexual, but are not sexual acts in and of themselves. These can be things you enjoy alone or with a partner. They don't have to necessarily be sexual or lead to sex, either. I would consider a really beautifully prepared meal sensual in the strictest definition of the word, which is "pertaining to, inclined to, or preoccupied with the gratification of the senses or appetites; carnal; fleshly." So think outside the box, and let me know what you come up with!

Mine are, in no particular order:

1.) Showering with my partner and washing each other. This means shampooing one another, scrubbing the back, legs, armpits, everything! It's a routine thing for us that actually started last year when I was very sick. I had a flu and was quite dizzy, so he stood with me in the shower to support me and help me clean up. We thought it was really beautiful and loving and intimate so now we do it all the time
2.) Cuddling under blankets (alone or with someone else) freshly showered, with freshly brushed teeth, watching Planet Earth. Just the feeling of being clean, warm and ready for bed, under the soft glow of a television study of cave ecology...
3.) Watching painters stretch and prepare canvas. Totally random, I know, but I love watching it. The find the whole ritual really relaxing but engaging at the same time. I can't explain it but I really love it.
4.) Submerging my feet in warm liquid. I once did this really cool thing where you dipped your feet in hot wax and then peeled the wax off...coolest thing ever. I have since then decided that putting my feet in any kind of warm liquid is the most relaxing and stimulating thing in the world.
5.) Eating any kind of slow cooked meat that literally falls off the bone when you touch it with a fork. In a room with low, warm lighting.

1. Sinking into a warm bed when the weather's cold, and pulling the blankets up to the chin, then nesting down.

2. Sitting next to each other and randomly caressing the other's hand while preoccupied with either a movie or talking.

3. Dancing in each other's arms, feeling their hands and arms and body, their hot breath against the ear and neck.

4. Slowly and deliberately eating an ice cream cone - the taste of the ice cream, and watching him react to it.

5. Hot bath with the water to the rim, and drifting in the near weightlessness. I once had the pleasure of living in a 1930's apartment that had a long tub, in which I could stretch out and not have to bend my legs to fit in. I then understood the love of baths.

Chilipepper, I love number 1 and 5. Oh, it's been so long since I've had a large enough tub to streach out....

Being snuggled up in a soft blanket with a hot cup of coffee/hot chocolate watching a romantic movie.

Climbing in between line dried sheets after a nice long shower (I love the smell of line dried sheets in the spring or fall....the summers get too hot and unwanted odors dampen the mood).

Oddly enough, the scent of subtle oil/car grime and sweat. Like how a man smells after working on his car all day. I just find the scent comforting.

1. Watching my lovers getting ready for work while I am snuggled in the still warm bed. Watching them groom themselves, dress all of it. It's so sensual knowing they are going to work to care for me and our kids...

2. Family dinners where we all work together to prepare it, set the table, talking and laughing. We are a very affectionate family so there's always touching, kissing, tickling, hugging. Teasing and even chasing...it's so great.

3. Massaging one of my partners all over his body with some nice oil, while I'm naked and using my whole body. So warm and slick!

4. As odd as it sounds watching my lifepartner watch porn and masturbate when he thinks I'm not looking. The look on his face and the way his breathing changes is so sensual to me. It doesn't necessarily make me sexually excited but it is very sensually appealing.

5. Talking to both my partners while we watch a movie, or tv program. Sitting between them both and feeling comfortable and safe.

3. Taking naps together.

I wanted to drop in and add another five!

1.) Taking a hot shower after a long day of being on public transportation and generally being exposed to the filth of the city.
2.) GRAVY. Putting it on everything.
3.) Organizing something that is not labor intensive - for example, alphabetizing records, re-arranging my toy chest, etc.
4.) Having one single alcoholic drink (something stronger than a beer, though) and sitting there, noticing and appreciating is slowly coming over you with a mild warmth.
5.) Painting my toe nails one by one with meticulous care.

Well..

1)feeding my man anything-the look he gives me is very adorable,and its fun if I drop it because then he licks me clean.not really sexual as it is funny and comforting

2)snuggling naked against his chest,no matter the time of day.I love his warmth and strength,I feel secure knowing he is with me.

3)taking a shower/bath,alone or with him,because I'm getting to relax and pamper myself.its very relaxing.

4)kissing in the rain-its weird,but when you are secure in his arms and warmth with the wet (usually cold pelting) rain pouring on you,the contrast is amazing and very sensual

5)nestling into my pillows and stuffed animals when its super cold,either due to weather or it justt being cold inside.its so lulling

1) I don't know why but I love it when people play with my hair, no matter who. Just the sensations feel really good to me, and relaxing. It also feels more intimate if it's my partner.

2) Just laying in a nice and warm bath with my eyes closed is relaxing. Nothing fancy like bubbles or candles. Just the warmth makes me feel relaxed and safe. I could probably fall asleep.

3) Cooking. Just smelling all the flavors and taste testing every few minutes makes me relax. Especially when no one is home. I feel really content when I cook.

4) Listening to music turned all the way up on my 50mm Headphones. It just tunes out the whole world. I usually close my eyes and just lay there listening intently to the lyrics. Listening to chill music.

5) Massages, whether I'll be giving myself one, or someone else. Just the combination of the scent and feel of the oils is amazing.

Here are 5, in no particular order:
1. Cooking a tantalizing meal for my girl.
2. Caning her when her back is aching.
3. Showering and shaving in preparation for an evening of intimacy.
4. Picking out the clothes for her to wear when we go anywhere.
5. Hugging and kissing her first thing in the morning when she gets up.

I like sitting beside my husband, after the kids are all in bed, and the sheepish smile he gives me to remind me that it's our time.
