From bonding to hygiene to boredom to relieving stress, there are many reasons why animals groom one another, and humans do it, too, although our reasons normally stem from affection. Couples in love can find ways to sensually express themselves through mutual grooming, such as trading massages, bathing together, and even shaving one another. In this multi-tasking society, mutual grooming can be a fun way to not only spend time together, but to also accomplish a personal task at the same time. Here are a few ideas for you and your partner to make mutual grooming sensual and pleasurable.
MASSAGE – Sensually massaging one another is a very common go-to foreplay event for a lot of couples. Soothing aching muscles is always a welcomed experience, but having your partner’s hands explore every crevice of your body is an added bonus. Regular massaging tones and firms the skin by stimulating capillaries and glands, especially when using a textured massage tool that energizes the skin, like our Super Deluxe Massage Smitten. This helps to reveal an overall radiant glow. Also, the skin contains nerve centers that connect with the brain’s pleasure center, so regular massaging contributes to an overall feeling of well-being. Using oils and lotions as part of a regular massage routine helps to hydrate and nourish the skin. Watch our Erotic Massage DVD to learn tips and techniques, and prepare for a powerful evening of love and touch! (***For injuries and knotted up muscles, please see a professional Massage Therapist. I’m happy to help you find a good one, if you don’t already have one.)
MUTUAL SHAVING – According to AskMen.com, mutual shaving is one of the most popularly recommended activities for couples who need to reignite a spark in their relationship. Simply put: many men have a fascination with a cleanly shaven genital area. On the other hand, many women find they are more willing to perform oral sex if their partner is free from hair. So, not only does mutual shaving provide an avenue for couples to learn to trust one another, it also makes for a smoother sensation for oral play. Check out Fragrance Free RomantaTherapy Soft & Silky Shaving Creme and After Shave Protection Mist to ensure the cleanest and closest shave possible! Aloe and jojoba soften the hair, making it easier to shave, and moisturize the skin. A spritz of the mist afterward immediately closes the hair follicle, so ingrown hairs don’t occur. These two products combined help to eliminate and prevent the red, itchy, burning bumps that can often occur with shaving, and help to make it so you have to shave less frequently. Soft & Silky comes in our three RomantaTherapy scents: Plumeria, Pomegranate Ginger, and Coconut Lemongrass, but I always recommend Fragrance Free for those with sensitive skin, and it’s what I personally use.
BATH FOR TWO – Conserve water and bathe with your lover! Research from the Rheingold Institute in Germany proves that couples who bathe together from time to time have a deeper connection with their partners than those who only bathe solo. Add to the mix nude bodies and soapy bubbles, and you can give the phrase, “I’ll wash your back, if you wash mine,” a super sexy meaning. Soak, relax, and enjoy Plumeria RomantaTherapy Sensuous Bath Salts with your partner to infuse the bath and the room with the calming, soothing, sensual scent of Plumeria, known the world over as “the flower of love” for its aphrodisiac qualities.
