Have you ever had someone touch you in such a way that you felt….lighter, more relaxed, sexy and even delicious? I was a “test dummy” for a friend of mine who was receiving his massage license and he need to practice to get his hands used to massaging for several minutes (up to an hour at a time). I was only too happy to oblige. He wanted to do me “right”…just like a customer so that I could get the full experience.
So here’s the story….
He first asked if I wanted to be massaged clothed or not. I was like shoot, I want the real deal (plus it was sorta bakin’ up in his house (no AC), but that’s another part of the story). So just for the record, when I normally get massaged, I get butta ball, so I proceeded to do the same thing here and we were good friends….so….anywho….He left the room and told me to lay face down on the massage table and cover up with the sheets. When he came back in, I was ready. He lit scented candles and had that Enya/Celtic massage music playing. Veeeerrrrrrrrry relaxing. No lights except for the candles. He asked me did I have a preferred scent (in terms of massage lotion). I told him I liked a peppermint/coconut blend he had. It had a cool feeling, but then it was also nice light scent and made me feel like I was in the islands. Mind you, we had been at a party earlier, so maybe it was the Bahama Mamas and Pina Coladas that really made me feel like I was in the islands, but I digress. So he didn’t just pour the lotion on my back, he put it in his hands, rubbed it all over his hands much like you would put on lotion. Then he poured some more and rubbed his hands vigorously together to get the friction going and get them all warm. Then he gently laid them on my back and started slowly doing circles in the middle of my back. He slowly moved his hands down to my lower back and then slowly back up to shoulders. As he rubbed, I felt the heat (maybe it was the lack of AC) from his hands and it was if I felt a very slight radiation just around his hands. It was as if I was a delicate and exquisite dough that he was gently kneading. He was firm, but gentle. He continued to work his magic and I’m guessing at some point I dozed off (passed out or something), because the next thing I know, I said, “Huh?”.
And he said, “Huh?”.
I coulda swore he (or some angel) called my name.
I said, “Did you say my name?”
“You sure? I heard my name.”
“I didn’t call your name.” Laughs at me.
So I get relax back into my role as the receiver of the gift. At this point, he was up in my hair, massaging my scalp and face. Then….a little while later as I groggily opened my eyes, I thought he had spun me completely around to the other end of the table because I saw the candles that were previously at my feet were now at my head. Really they weren’t, it’s just that my head was looking in that direction. I was ALL messed up, but in a good way. When he helped me up from the table, I was groggy and I swear it felt like somebody had slipped me a mickey. But when he asked me, “So how do you feel?” The first word that I could coherently mumble was….Delicious! And with that, I licked the peppermint from my lips and kissed his.
So here’s to making the time THIS WEEK, preferably tonight to make your SO feel delicious and IF you’re the giver tonight, make a date to be the receiver next time. Maybe you’ll get more than you bargained for.
