Believe it or not, foreplay isn’t all about making out, stripping down, and cutting straight to sex. If you’re tired of the same old song and dance, a Nuru massage is one of the hottest ways to get the juices flowing.
A Nuru massage is a sexy, intimate way to connect with your partner physically and emotionally—all while taking your sex life to a dimension you never knew existed. So, what are you waiting for? Here’s how to treat your partner (and yourself) to an intoxicating, unforgettable Nuru massage at home.
What Is a Nuru Massage?
A Nuru massage is a Japanese form of massage that uses slippery seaweed-based gel. During a Nuru massage, the masseuse uses their body to massage the client, providing more bodily contact than your traditional massage.
Using slippery massage gel makes traditional massage techniques a little trickier, and most professional Nuru masseurs undergo specialized training to perfect their technique. But performing a Nuru massage at home isn’t rocket science—it just takes some practice. Even if you can’t give a professional massage at home, you’ll still be able to create a fun, tantalizing experience that’ll leave your partner craving more.
Benefits of Nuru Massages
Whether you’re looking to spice up your bedroom repertoire or grow more intimate with your partner, an erotic massage is worth trying. Being covered in gel and sliding against your partner not only creates new sensations but can also help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
A Nuru massage is also an amazing way to strengthen your relationship. Most of our everyday communication is nonverbal, so it only makes sense that body language plays a huge role in how we communicate with our partners. And, as one of the most intimate forms of touch, massage is a great way to connect with your partner on a deeper level.
And if that’s not convincing enough, Nuru massages offer countless health benefits. They’re ideal for muscle relaxation, stress relief, and moisturizing skin—and they can even help remove toxins from your body.
How To Perform a Nuru Massage at Home
You don’t need a huge space or spare bedroom to perform a Nuru massage at home, as long as your space is nice, relaxed, and comfortable for both of you. Here’s how to get started.
#1 - Prep Your Gear
For an authentic Nuru massage, you’ll need to invest in some equipment, including seaweed-based massage gel and a Nuru sheet. If you don’t have a Nuru sheet or mattress, you can always improvise with a regular plastic sheet, but it’s important to work on a smooth surface. You’re going to be slipping and gliding, and you don’t want any sharp edges to distract from the experience.
Even though a Nuru sheet isn’t necessary, you will want to invest in some Nuru gel. It might be tempting to use lube, but most lubes will just kill the mood by leaving you sticky. Nuru gel is designed to create a smooth gliding sensation when mixed with warm water, and when looking at the price tag, remember a little bit of gel can go a long way.
#2 - Set the Mood
You’ll want to choose a quiet, private space for your Nuru massage. To create a relaxing environment, put away any clutter, put on some sexy music, and choose a comfortable temperature. You don’t want to be too hot or too cold during your massage (and whatever comes after).
Dim lights and candles are ideal for creating a romantic, intimate atmosphere for your Nuru massage. For extra relaxation and stress relief, try lighting some incense and scented candles.
#3 - Keep It Simple
Nuru massages work best when one partner rubs their body onto the other partner, who remains stationary. So, to get started, support yourself with your arms and glide your body across your partner’s. For extra pleasure, try varying your movements by swaying side to side or up and down.
Don’t be afraid to mix things up by creating contact between different parts of your bodies. If you’ve been massaging your legs against your partner’s legs, move around! Give your partner’s neck and shoulders a gentle squeeze to release any tension, and then run your palms down their arms. You might sit on their back, slide along their spine, and massage their thighs.
Your whole body is fair game here—it all depends on what feels good for you and your partner. A Nuru massage should be a playful experience for both of you, so keep things interesting with sensual touches rather than just slipping and sliding into each other.
#4 - Turn Up the Heat on Your Nuru Massage
Once you’ve touched every part of your partner’s body, it’s time to turn up the heat. You can start by teasing your partner while making eye contact. Try asking them to lie on their back while watching you apply oil—or ask them to give you a hand (or two).
Then, start touching and rubbing your vulva against your partner’s genitals. For a more tantalizing massage, take turns. Spend some time grinding and sliding against your partner, and then let your partner take control.
After you’re both aroused, you can take your foreplay to the next level with mutual masturbation, a steamy shower, or whatever feels right to you. And if you want to bring in your best tools for the job, don’t worry—Nuru gel is water-based, which means it’s safe to use with your silicone vibrator.
