What Is A Sensual Massage?
Nov 21, 2022
A sensual massage is a common technique that is used to relax the body and enhance one’s sensual sensitivities. It is also known as an erotic massage, a tantric massage or a sexual massage. This concept has roots in both eastern and western cultures and is said to have spiritual, emotional and mental benefits.
In this blog, we’re going to dive deep into the world of sensual massages. We’re going to discuss what the process entails as well as some of its practical benefits. In addition, we’ll also discuss the establishments (and the experts) that are permitted to give sensual massages in Australia.
What is Involved in a Sensual Massage?
- The process
In simple terms, a sensual massage is when a masseur or a masseuse (or a partner) uses their hands to stimulate and ease the recipient. With most sensual massages, the focus is to maintain physical contact throughout the whole procedure and massage the entire body. Some services may also only focus on specific areas like the back or the feet.
There are different sensual massage techniques. The light touch involves gently caressing the body in order to warm it up. It may also cause a tingling sensation in the recipient. There’s also the deep tissue massage which aims to ease the nerves and tissues within the body. This can be used to increase intimacy but also has physical health benefits.
- The atmosphere
A huge aspect of sensual massages is the atmosphere. In a massage parlour or a brothel, you might expect comfortable pillows, dim lighting, sensual aromas and soothing music. Additionally, establishments will usually ask you to turn off your phone so that you can fully focus on the experience.
Depending on the service, the massage can be done while the recipient is fully clothed or otherwise. The process might also involve additional tools like exfoliators, massage oils or cream.
- The goal
In most cases, the goal of the massage is to simultaneously relax the body while gradually increasing excitement. The process allows the recipient to explore their physical sensitivities and potentially enhance their sex life.
Though the terms sensual and sexual massages are sometimes used interchangeably, it should be noted that not all sensual massages are sexual in nature. The legalities of sexual massages will differ depending on your area and so it’s important to understand the laws and regulations of your local government before hiring such services.
What Are The Benefits of a Sensual Massage?
Perhaps the main benefit of a sensual massage is the sense of calm and relaxation that you feel during the session. As a by-product of reducing stress-levels, the recipient may also experience less anxiety, better emotional regulation, reduced musculoskeletal pain, and better-quality sleep.
On the other side of things, a massage may reinvigorate one’s libido and enhance their response to sexual stimuli. This could be beneficial for those who feel as if their sexual relationships are suffering from a lack of excitement or passion.
Where Can You Get a Sensual Massage?
Generally speaking, you can get a sensual massage at specialised spas, massage parlours or brothels.
Depending on what establishment you choose, the services that they offer might differ. For example, some massage parlours might only offer non-erotic massages that focusses on easing the physical body. Brothels, on the other hand, may only focus on providing a sexually exciting experience as opposed to a therapeutic result.
It’s also important to know who is permitted to provide sexual services in your area. In Victoria, for example, locations with sex work service provider licences are the only establishments that are legally allowed to offer sexual massages. Some independent sex workers may also provide such services.
Keep in mind that some massage parlours may be illegally offering sexual services and so it’s essential to be vigilant. Partaking in illegal services may cause personal injury to yourself or to others involved in the transaction.
To ensure that you’re protected and to make sure that no one is being exploited, it’s important to work with licensed establishments.
Hopefully, this has given you a better understanding of sensual massages and what they entail. If you’re interested in these services, be sure to check the legalities in your area and make sure you’re dealing with reputable establishments that will protect you and its workers.
