Many associate sensuality with sexuality. While sensual touch may lead to and be a part of sex, sensuality itself is not sexual activity. When given the proper attention and respect, sensual touch does enhance feelings of intimacy and bonding.
Sensuality is about fully catering to the senses, hence the prefix “sens”.
To have an even deeper and more gratifying sexual experience 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.
Separating the act of sensual touch from sex will help you to be more physically present and mindful not just during sex but in other aspects of your every day life. And of course this adds to the intensity of sex when it is added to the equation.
Sensual touch allows you to find your erogenous zones. These are zones that are particularly sensitive to pleasure when touch correctly.
Focusing on the sensuality of touch also helps to diminish sexual anxiety and/or expectations.
