Looking for ways to have a romantic evening at home with your significant other? A massage is a great way for couples to spend quality time bonding with each other. Massage can be a stress reliever for the giver and receiver (especially the receiver, in my opinion!) You’ll need to do a little bit of preparation ahead of time to set the mood for a romantic massage.
By the way – you don’t need to worry too much about your massage technique. Get a few pointers from online articles or watch YouTube videos about how to give a massage. Remember there is no perfect way to give a massage. Just take it slow and ask your partner for feedback on what feels good (or not).

Setting the Mood for a Romantic Massage.
It is important to set the right mood. You’ll need a quiet, private area such as the bedroom. The bed is a comfortable spot to lie down for massage. The following suggestions will help you prepare for an at-home romantic massage with your partner.
Clean the room.
Get rid of any clutter, put fresh sheets on the bed, vacuum the floor and dust. A clean scene makes it much easier to relax. Click to get a $1/off Endust Coupon
Check the room temperature.
Make sure the room is a comfortable temperature. You don’t want your partner to be too hot or too cold during the massage.
Close the windows and dim the lights.
Close the windows for privacy and turn off any bright overhead lights. Dim lighting, especially candlelight, helps create a romantic atmosphere. Many people enjoy using scented candles for aromatherapy.
Turn on the music.
Set a romantic mood with soft, relaxing background music.
Take a warm bath.
A warm bath helps with relaxation. Your body will feel fresh and clean for the massage. Treat yourself to bath salts for a more spa-like experience.
Use a massage oil or lotion.
It’s essential to use a massage oil or lotion to give a romantic massage. You may want to pick one with a sensual fragrance. Or use one designed to make your skin feel warm and tingly. Start with a small amount of oil, making sure to warm it in your hands before putting it on your partner. Add more oil if necessary.
