Are you experiencing a lot of stress lately? Are you constantly sore, run down and feeling like you’re not at your peak? Booking a professional sensual massage might be the perfect therapy you need to curb your stressful emotions and give you much needed relief.
However, booking this kind of treatment might be a little intimidating if it’s your first time. For many people, the intimate aspect of a sensual massage might make asking for it a little awkward, especially if they are in a monogamous relationship and it is unclear how their partner might feel about the treatment.
With all that said, let’s take a look at some tips you can follow when booking your first sensual massage.
1. It’s only therapy
An important thing to remember about your first sensual massage is that whatever awkward, pseudo-romantic tension you feel is entirely on your end and won’t be reciprocated by the therapist. You aren’t going to have sex with them, so any notion that your treatment might transition to intercourse should be forgotten about quickly. There are ways to pay for sex, this is not one of them.
2. It’s not inherently cheating
One reason you might hesitate to book a sensual massage is that you are in a monogamous relationship and your partner would feel betrayed if you got this kind of therapy from another person. Many people might assume that a sensual massage is something you should ask your partner for – but do they really know what they are doing?
If you can have a mature discussion with your partner about what the experience actually is, and how it differs from having a romantic affair, you might find they have no issue. Better yet, you could even ask to have the treatment done as a couple (assuming the practitioner is ok with that).
3. There’s a huge variety of choice
When it comes to sensual massages, there’s not shortage of different varieties out there, each differing in their level of intimacy and approach to therapy. Some, like a bodyslide session, involve the therapist rubbing their naked body down yours in a therapeutic way, which needless to say would be incredibly arousing.
Not to mention – each therapist comes in their own shape and size. Since everyone is unique, there’s always a new experience to have when you book a different therapist. This means that you can get the ideal session with someone who ticks all of your boxes.
4. Be clever with your money
Because this is your first time booking a sensual massage, it’s entirely possible for you to overpay with a practitioner who wants to exploit your ignorance. You should shop around and see what the average cost for an hour is, compared with the relative qualities of the therapist.
Use common sense. A bodyslide session from a 20-year-old bikini model is going to cost more than an oil rub from a middle-aged therapist.
5. Be cool, not cringey
If it’s your first time, its normal to be a little apprehensive about the experience, but don’t project all of this onto the therapist. Overthinking your session is just going to get in the way of you having a good time, simply explain yourself honestly and let the professional do what they do best.
Getting a sensual massage doesn’t need to be a daunting or scary experience as long as you know what you’re paying for and don’t step on anyone’s toes.
