If you’re new to sensation play, the wide world of options might seem a bit daunting. But never fear! We’re here to help you explore the many different shades of sensation play, so you can find the perfect fit for you and your partner.
What is Sensation Play?
Before we dive in, let’s take a moment to review what sensation play is. Simply put, sensation play is any activity that involves introducing new sensations to the body.
This can be done through tactile stimulation (including massages), temperature play (using hot or cold objects), auditory stimulation (including music or white noise), visual stimulation (including lights or candles), olfactory stimulation (using essential oils or scented candles), gustatory stimulation (including lickable body sauces), or even kinesthetic stimulation (through movement or position changes).
The possibilities are truly endless! And while some forms of sensation play might require a little bit of preparation beforehand, others can be easily incorporated into your everyday life. Here are just a few ideas to get you started…
Tactile Stimulation: Massage
One of the simplest and most effective ways to add some extra sensory stimulation into your life is through massage. Massages can be short and sweet (a 10-minute neck rub after a long day at work) or luxurious and indulgent (a 90-minute full-body Swedish massage complete with aromatherapy).
Either way, they’re a great way to wind down, de-stress, and reconnect with your partner. Plus, they don’t require any special equipment beyond a good massage oil!
Temperature Play: Hot and Cold Drinks
Adding hot or cold beverages into your sex life is a fun and easy way to experiment with temperature play. If you want to go the hot route, try incorporating some warm tea or coffee into foreplay.
Or, if you’re feeling frisky, pour yourself and your partner two glasses of champagne and see where the night takes you!
On the other hand, if you’re interested in exploring the world of cold sensations, try adding some ice cubes into your oral sex repertoire. Just be sure to use small pieces that won’t get stuck, no one wants a trip to the ER in the middle of sexy time!
Auditory Stimulation: White Noise Machines
If outside noise is preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep, consider investing in a white noise machine.
These handy devices produce calming sounds like rainfalls or ocean waves that can help block out disruptive noises—and they can also be used to create an ambient soundtrack for sex. Just dim the lights, hit “play,” and let the relaxation begin!
