Looking for a way to get saucy this Valentine's Day? A sensual massage is a great way to create romance, and if done correctly is likely to lead to something even more exciting. Here at Durex, we’ve got some top massage tips and different ways to help you and your partner experience full pleasure and romance this Valentine’s Day.

Set the Mood

The first thing to consider when planning a sensual massage is to set the mood for both you and your partner. Having your partner lay down on the sofa and with the TV blaring in the background doesn’t exactly scream romantic and relaxing.

Creating a relaxed ambience is the key to a perfect massage – so put some calming music on, light some candles and get down and dirty with some massage oils and gels. Incorporating these into your massage allows your hands to glide over your partners skin, allowing you to rub every curve and crevice.

Mix It Up

Whilst the most common massage areas are the back, shoulders and neck – experimenting with new areas can not only relieve tension points neither you or your partner realised they had, but can also lead to more exciting things. From working the lower back, naturally transition your way down to the butt. As this is a very sensitive erogenous zone, this is guaranteed to get your partner hot under the collar, but is also a place that holds a lot of tension!

Working your way up the legs is another great area to massage, but is also the gateway to another realm of pleasure. Slowly work your way up the inside of your partners legs and watch how they squirm in anticipation. If things become heated, then this is a great opportunity to experiment with Durex Intense Gel. Designed to increase sensitivity of her intimate areas, this clitoral stimulating gel is sure to give her earth-shattering orgasms.

The Aftermath

Sensual massages don’t always have to lead to sex – so don’t feel too disheartened if your partner is just enjoying the relaxing and soothing experience and no more. However, as it’s Valentine’s Day – a great way to shake up a massage is to surprise your partner with some sex toys for afterwards.

Our Durex Play Dream Intimate Massager is designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, and is easily manipulated to target pleasure where you want it. For couples wanting to add a little more fun into foreplay, finishing off your massage with one of these will set you up for pleasure right through the night.

For Him

If it’s the special man in your life that you’re treating to a sensual massage, first make sure you have a good coating of lubricant in your hand before gently massaging his testicles. As these are a very sensitive area, make sure you really take your time with this and ensure that it is all pleasure and no pain.

From here massage the penis from top to bottom, ensuring it is fully coated in lube. Start your motion from the head of the penis and work your way down to the base in a repetitive motion. You’ll soon see him growing more and more excited, however, if you’re wanting him to prolong his ejaculation for intercourse, don’t spend too long on this.

For Her

When giving your woman a sexual massage, start by focussing on the vulva and vaginal lips, and gently caress these using a generous helping of gel for increase pleasure. The woman’s body language and swelling of vaginal lips are clear indicators of arousal and pleasure, so once you notice these – begin to massage the head of the clitoris in circular motions and watch her squeal in pleasure (also don’t be shocked if she has a mind-blowing orgasm, your massage has been successful).

Whatever you decide to do this Valentines, make it a special one with Durex. This year, cut the cliché and keep your Valentine's Day simple, saucy and spontaneous.
