Sexy This Week: Massage
Wikipedia describes Massage as involving working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device. Massage can promote relaxation and well-being, can be a recreational activity, and can be sexual in nature (see Erotic massage).
As I mentioned in Sexy This Week’s, Human Touch, it’s about the human connection that comes from all forms of touch. However massage is the much more specialized application between two people or more, for therapeutic reasons, sensual, or sexual.
Massage is deeply personal no matter what your reasons for enjoying, but let’s also be clear that not all massage is enjoyable. It can be very intense and used to treat a multitude of ailments within the structure of the body’s musculature, a prime example is that of Rolfing, a deep tissue, pressure point activated application that can be outright painful, but with seriously wonderful results.
For some, the idea of having someone else touch you is very stressful and many people cannot relax, let alone trust someone to touch them, with reasons that can be deep rooted requiring counselling to get beyond those barriers. Whatever those reasons are, they are reasons that can be seriously debilitating even in the context of an erotic massage.
Allowing someone to touch you for healing, or for something a little more personal is something everyone on this planet should indulge in! It brings us closer as human beings, something I believe the lack thereof is pushing us further apart.
We forget after all, we are animals as well, and we only need to look to the animal kingdom to see the connection all the differing species have, take for example the Bonobo Monkey and the sex practices of the females, or the grooming habits of the Chimpanzee.
Go ahead, reach out and touch someone, feel, squeeze, knead, maybe even nibble a little. Get in close and smell that skin, look at it, lick it…….
