To give your couples' massage the full treatment, you'll need the following items:
- Flat sheet
- Hand Towel
- Bath Towel
- Oil or lotion
- Drinking water
Place the flat sheet on the bed in order to protect your sheets from massage oils or lotions. The hand towel, too, is handy for wiping excess oil from your hands. Use the bath towel is also handy for covering your lover's to cover your lover's lower half for the beginning of the massage. This is not so much for modesty as warmth. It's important that the person receiving the massage not ever get cold, as this will counteract the soothing effects of the massage. Choose a lotion or oil appropriate to mood and personal taste (see also my tip on massage oils in this section). After any massage, it's a good idea for the receiving partner to drink at least one glass of room temperature water. This helps to flush out toxins that have been worked out during the massage.
Of course, a more sensual massage can include dressing up the room a bit with candles, flowers, incense, soothing music, etc. These are optional, however. All that really matters is the physical connection between you and your partner.
