Plug into your mate
The distractions of computers, TV and smartphones make it easier for partners to lose their emotional connection, and that can lead to cheating. There are more and more couples who would rather stick to their cellphone in bed too than make love. Stop staring at screens and spend face-to-face time.
Your 4-step guide to rubbing her the extremely right way. When you give your better half a rubdown, go slow. That’s the massage message from experts. Use the heel of your hand to make continuous fluid movements and work the whole length of the muscle.
1 Prep For Glory
Have your mate disrobe and lie face-down on a towel or firm bed. Enjoy the view, and then dim the lights. Squeeze some oil into your palms and rub them together to warm it up.
2 Be Smooth
Start at her shoulders and then move to the muscles at the base of her neck before working down each arm. Gently pinch (between your thumb and fingers), squeeze, and knead her skin. If she winces, lighten up; she should be completely relaxed.
3 Keep It Going
Return to her neck and work your way down to her lower back, making smooth circular, clockwise motions, using the same massage techniques as on her arms but adding the heels of your hands for larger areas on each side of her spine.
4 Finish Strong
End by using the palms of your hands to work on her lower back. The whole process should take about 45 minutes, and with luck, much longer. Don’t worry if you get aroused. Do worry if she doesn’t. Music and candles are optional, but they add to the mood.
