An erotic massage is considered by many of its practitioners to be an art form that blends sensuality, wellness, and also a type of physical therapy that involves two or more naked bodies working together to achieve or enhance the sexual arousal of one or both. However, an erotic massage goes beyond the sexual. It is also used as a therapy to stimulate libido, improve one’s self-image and learn to relax so that one can enjoy sexuality without fear. Erotic massages are used all over the world and in different cultures to improve sexual relations and personal well-being.
Benefits of erotic massages
Beyond sexual pleasure, an erotic massage can strengthen relationships and help to better enjoy our intimate relationships. Let’s have a look at some of the benefits of erotic massage.
May help prevent anxiety and stress
Thousands of studies show that a massage increases the production of endorphins and wellness hormones in the brain which translates into a pleasant feeling of relaxation in the body. The two most important are dopamine and serotonin ( this last one, essentially its absence, is one of the causes or triggers of depression) and are also released during erotic massage sessions. These two hormones are the body’s natural tranquilizers and the hormones to feel good (which are also released after eating, after sports…). Adding erotic massage to an already healthy lifestyle enhances those hormones.
Can improve relationships
An erotic massage has several benefits for the couple. If you have been with your partner for years, are starting a new relationship, or even if you are single and have short-term relationships, an erotic massage is a great way to relax and open up to the feelings and tastes of the other person. This translates into an improvement in pleasure: you learn to be open and aware of your own tastes and those of your partner. In a last step that translates into an improvement of the relationship at other levels.
May improve erections
It is important to keep in mind that an erection will not occur if the person is nervous and insecure. But in addition to the mental part, in an erection the physical part also counts: prostate and perianal massages are also highly recommended for most men.
May improve muscle and joint health
The benefits of a good massage specialized in sore muscles and strained joints are well known. Proper manipulation of muscles, connective tissue, ligaments, joints, tendons, and lymph nodes has many benefits for the body. Some erotic massages mix the more classic or sporty massages first, to move to a more intimate second phase later, so in these cases the improvement would also be remarkable.
