Many associate sensuality with sexuality.
While sensual touch is usually the precursor to sex, sensuality itself is not sexual activity. When given the proper attention and respect, practicing sensual touch can enhance feelings of intimacy and bonding.
Sensuality is about fully catering to the senses, hence the prefix “sens”.
To have deeper and more gratifying experiences when engaging sexually with self or your partner, it’s important to make a healthy practice of delving into your own sensual self.
Anything that delights or brings pleasure to your senses is sensual.
Differentiating between the act of sex and the practice of sensual touch can help you to be more mentally and physically present not just during sex but in other areas of your every day life. Mindfulness.
This of course adds to the intensity of sex when it is added to the equation.
Sensual touch promotes more fulfilling connections with erogenous zones. These are zones that are particularly sensitive to pleasure when touched correctly.
Focusing on the sensuality of touch also helps to diminish sexual anxiety and/or expectations as well as helping one learn to adopt healthier intimate practices.
