Key Points

  • Giving your partner a sensual massage is a beautiful way to be intimate and treat them to full-body, stress-relieving pleasure.

  • Set the scene with candlelight, soft music, a relaxing place to lie down, and your massage kit ready.

  • Slowly and mindfully go through the motions of easing your partner into a massage and eventually rubbing their muscles as deeply as they desire.

  • As you progress through the massage, explore massage and stimulation of their genitals with your hands or with these sensual massage toys.

Pampering your partner with a sensual massage builds intimacy, takes care of their essential needs, and turns them on. It's a great distraction from a long day at work, a peace offering to make up after an argument, and an excellent way to do something special for your partner.

It's more complicated than just having your partner lie down and rubbing them. Set the mood, light candles, and create a calm ambiance free from distractions. Once you're all set up, you'll need the right tools, techniques, and toys to make your sensual massage count. Without lotions and oils, your hands will drag with friction, causing more pain than pleasure during your sensual massage.

Different massage pressures and techniques bring different results. Test the pressure with your partner and adjust, making sure it's strong enough to release stress but light enough not to hurt. A sensual massage is an art form. This is your guide to bringing your erotic massage game up a notch, including techniques, tools, and toys to bring your pleasure to new heights. You'll be begging to rub down your partner when you learn how to do it right.


What is a Sensual Massage?

A sensual massage builds intimacy between partners, stimulating the libido to promote sexual pleasure. It's similar to a Swedish massage, focusing on gentle techniques rather than deep tissue massage to promote relaxation and stress relief while stimulating blood flow for maximum pleasure.

Focus on the erogenous zones, like the neck, shoulders, and back. Pay special attention to the butt while your partner is on their stomach. The gentle glide of your hands all over their body fires up their nerve endings, helping your touch pulsate throughout their body. By the end, your partner will be ready to jump your bones and relieve the rest of their tension another way.

Giving a Sensual Massage

Sensual massage is about more than the act of massage — you want to create an ambiance to promote relaxation, utilizing tools that heighten pleasure and relaxation. Your partner will appreciate any effort you're making, but following proper techniques allows you to make the most of your sensual massage.

Set the Scene

Prepare the space where you're giving the massage. Tidy up, dim the lights, light some scented candles or massage candles, and scatter them throughout the room. Quietly play music to set the mood, such as a pre-made playlist curated for sensual massage. Lay out a soft blanket for their comfort, one that's okay to get oil on. Roll up a towel and curl it into a donut shape for a comfy face rest.

Consider getting flowers and creating a bed of petals for your partner to lay on to heighten the sensuality. Don't use the entire flower as the stems can be uncomfortable and have thorns. The key to a sensual massage is to create a romantic environment, free from the distractions of real life. The scent is just as powerful as touch, so don't forget to care for it. Finally, prepare your sensual massage kit and invite your partner to enter the room.


Warm Up the Body

It may be tempting to jump right in, but first, you want to warm up the body. Rub your hands together to generate heat before you start caressing your partner. First, run your hands gently over their body, including nooks and crannies. The lighter the touch, the better. You want goosebumps to appear as you fire up their nerve endings.

Next, start to gently rub their body, not quite massaging yet, just giving gentle pressure throughout the body. It promotes blood flow, and the more you touch your partner, the more you turn them on. They will be on edge, waiting to see what you'll do next.

Gently tease them with massage oil or massage candles, or roll a massage ball along their back. Keep the foreplay going until you're ready to dig into the massage. Don't rush, but don't leave them waiting either!

Start Massaging

Once your partner is ready to go, grab the massage oil or lotion and put it on your hands. Rub your hands together to warm them up before putting them on the body. If you don't warm the oil first, it's shockingly cold on your partner's skin and it quickly kills the mood.

Begin to massage your partner, using small sweeping motions across sections. Eventually, you'll want to rub all over the body, but to start, keep it in sections. Don't use too much pressure with a sensual massage. Check-in with your partner if the pressure feels right as you start working. Some areas may be more sensitive than others, so you need to vary the pressure.

Pay attention to their body language. If your partner tenses up, ease off the pressure. If they melt into the table, you're on the right track. Keep reapplying massage oils to your hands throughout the massage. If you notice your hands catching on your partner's skin, reapply and warm it up again. A lack of lubrication causes friction on your partner's skin, and they won't be able to enjoy the massage through the discomfort.

Ask your partner to flip over and massage their other side. Don't stop until you handle every inch with care. They should feel like jelly on the table if you did your job right!

Try Tantric Massage

Sensual massage is not the same as a tantric massage, so if you want to take it up a notch by incorporating healing and genital massage, try it out! During a tantric massage, you massage every inch of their body to heighten pleasure.

The goal isn't orgasm, but rather to relax this part of the body like you did everywhere else. While it may be tempting to jump straight to the clit, start with the labia, applying gentle pressure as you work out the kinks. Move your thumb in small, tight circles across the entire area until you reach the clit. She should be wild with lust by now, so she'll feel extra sensitive down there.

You can stop there, paying extra attention to clitoral stimulation or taking a quick break for oral sex — whatever feels right for you. Remember, orgasm isn't the ultimate goal of a tantric massage, though it can be an excellent benefit. Tantric massages focus on healing, removing any energetic and sexual blocks that hinder your sexual pleasure.

If you're massaging a man, massage the inner thighs, testicles, perineum, and eventually the penis. Work on this area as if you're trying to relax the muscles and release tension, not give a hand job. Move your fingers in circular motions on the shaft of the penis and work your way up and down to release tension in your partner's genitals.

It's an excellent way to connect spiritually with your partner, with or without an orgasm. Sensual massage is a part of tantric massage, but it's so much more. Enjoy the process of pleasuring and exploring your partner's body without sexual intention. Of course, things are likely to get heated, so don't forget the lubricant in case it turns into an erotic moment.


Sensual Massage Toys to Try

You can turn anything into a sensual massage toy if you're creative enough. The point is to make your partner feel cherished and loved during the massage, driving them wild so they can't wait to get their hands on you. Sensual massages aren't always reciprocal, but it can be nice to switch off as foreplay. If you want to elevate your sensual massage, consider using the following toys.

Massage Oils

Massage oils heighten pleasure while giving a luxurious scent. They feel amazing on your skin and enhance the sensations of your partner touching you. Choose the right oil for you and your partner for your next sensual, erotic, or tantric massage encounter.

Intimate Earth Massage Oils

Intimate Earth massage oils are some of the best massage oils on the market. They use organic extracts and sensual scents to optimize your pleasure. There are six scents to choose from, each meant to target different emotions and feelings, including energize, awaken, bloom, chai, or sensitive. Additionally, there's an unscented option called naked if you have sensitivity.

Intimate Earth massage oils react differently with your body chemistry, so no two scents will be the same. The natural ingredients are very nourishing, so in addition to adding fun to your massage, your skin looks amazing with continued use. Intimate Earth also offers lubricants and arousal serums to use these toys at all stages of your lovemaking.

Take spicy advice from sex coach and doctor of human sexuality Dr. Emily Morse, "A great way to create mystery with your partner is to start with a darkened room. Have other candles lit, and start the seduction by inviting your partner to lie on the bed for a massage. You can even ramp up the seduction and “danger” by blindfolding them and leading them to the bed. Utilize sounds and smells for some sensation play. Let them hear you light the candle and then blow it out. Build suspense as you wait for the candle wax to cool. When you’re ready, lightly drip the massage oil on your partner’s back and then rub in with your hands."
