One touch is sometimes all it takes.
Have you ever had those times when you're just not feeling well? I'm talking bad enough that you cannot even think about having sex? Maybe you're sick? Whatever it is, you are not feeling up to hot and heavy sex. Thankfully, there's a good way to please both you and your partner without having to exert the energy.
Last weekend, my boyfriend came to visit me. His summer job has him working and living two hours away for the time being, so we don't get to see each other very often. Unfortunately for both of us, I was feeling very under the weather. I was hardly up for having our normal, crazy sex. He completely understood and besides, it wasn't like we hadn't gone without sex before.
At one point, we decided to lay down in bed and watch a movie in our pajamas. A very comfortable, lazy afternoon. A little ways into the movie, I asked my boyfriend if he would give me a back massage. Part of what had me feeling so bad was some serious back pain. He, wanting to do something to make me feel better, agreed. After he had been rubbing my shoulders for a few minutes, he playfully pinched my nipple. I jumped, of course, but that little move gave me an interesting idea. Something that we hadn't really tried before.
Once we had curled back up together, I moved his hand back onto my breasts. He proceeded to pinch, rub, and massage my breasts and nipples. Then, he moved down and proceeded to give the same treatment to my clitoris and the surrounding area. A good, deep massage, really working the tissue. Like a deep tissue massage for my erogenous zones. Nothing rough or trying to get me off, just enough to stimulate me. It felt absolutely amazing. Surprisingly enough, it didn't really make me feel horny so much as relaxed and very close to my boyfriend.
Erotic massages, like the one my boyfriend gave me, are great for promoting intimacy. Even though we weren't having sex, we were spending time together, touching each other. It was very romantic without having to be an elaborate show. We didn't have to go crazy with candles, rose petals, and massage oils to make it an intimate experience. More importantly, one that we were both able to benefit from. Since massages can produce chemical reactions in the brain similar to the ones produced during sex, I was able to get the same benefits. Mostly the sleepy, relaxed feeling you get post-orgasm. He, being the type of guy that loves to take care of me, enjoyed being able to make me feel better. Besides that, he loved the exploration that came with the massage, learning new ways to please me.
In the end, the massage made me feel so much better and my boyfriend learned a new trick to make me squirm. Just between you and me, he can use that trick any time he wants. We will definitely be doing erotic massages more often.
