Back massage technique: Californain massage


 - Back massage technique: Californain massage

How do I go about it? To give him a Californian massage, make him lie down on his stomach and position yourself towards his head with your hands flat at the top of his back. Slide your palms gently down to his bum, as if you're stretching his skin towards his feet. Squeeze his bum, slide your hands along his flanks then go back up to his armpits before lightly tugging his shoulders upwards to return to your starting position. Repeat this movement, increasing the pressure as you go along. Don't forget to synchronise your actions with your partner's breathing: go down when he exhales and up when he inhales.

Why is it so good? Because it's relaxing and releases muscular tension. It also revives the skin's sensitivity, making him even more receptive to your caresses!

A good time to try it: After a long, hard day at work, when he's too stressed or tired for acrobatic sex. It's guaranteed to relax him and turn him on!

An extra idea: For a bit of a change, you can also give him a Californian massage on the chest (using the same movements) and stomach: position yourself to the right of your partner, place your hands on his abdomen then massage in clockwise circular movements.

Did you know? This massage is actually called Sensitive Gestalt Massage, but it's known as Californian massage because it was invented there in 1960s (and it sounds a lot sexier as well, we reckon).
