Physical touch essential for intimacy
A recent survey conducted by the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University in America shows there is a big disconnect between a couple’s desire to be touched and the amount of physical connection they actually experience. According to the survey results, 87 percent of men and women in committed relationships rated touch as very, or extremely, important in building intimacy. However, more than a third say their partner does not touch them often enough.
This gap between what men and women want and what they actually experience is a huge red flag for intimacy. However it is easily addressed and, given sufficient attention, it could help couples experience a more positive and fulfilling relationship.
“Touch is important for sustaining a healthy relationship, but it’s also necessary for our feelings of connection, safety and overall well-being,” says Dr. Justin R. Garcia, Associate Director for Research and Education at The Kinsey Institute.
“People who experience regular loving touch benefit from increased oxytocin levels, which has been associated with lower heart rates and lower blood pressure, and over time can decrease a person’s risk for many serious health ailments. Scientific research tells us that affective touch is important for our emotional and physical wellbeing.”
Tips to build physical intimacy
Physical touch leads naturally into sexual intimacy, so your relationship is bound to improve if you give it the necessary attention. Try these connection tips to increase intimacy and see how they pay dividends in the bedroom!
- Increase the amount of time that you’re physically connected. This includes holding hands and caressing each other. According to the Kinsey survey, 51 percent of couples like to be touched on the genitals, followed by the hands and neck (45 percent). But avoid the armpits or feet – these are the least favourite touch areas!
- Try something that brings you both into physical contact. This could include something new, like learning to partner dance, or going on good old-fashioned thrill rides like the rollercoaster. Having fun while being in close physical contact builds intimacy and bonding and definitely falls into the foreplay category.
- A sensual massage is relaxing and shows your partner that you care. Create the right environment using soft lighting and gentle music.
If you’ve made physical and emotional connection a priority, this should have both partners ready to engage sexually when the lights are dimmed. A way to continue intimate touching is to use a sex gel. These enhancement lubricants are suitable for men and women and help both partners get in the mood. They also heighten the sensations of pleasure by stimulating the erogenous zones and increase the desire to have sex.
While there are a number of arousal gels available, satisfaction levels do vary. If you want an experience that’s more natural and longer lasting, consider an organic sex gel like Ignite Intimate Gel.
How does Ignite Intimate sex gel work?
Ignite Intimate Gel is a water based, totally natural proprietary formula of rainforest herbs, L-Arginine and Carrageenan Gum, formulated to stimulate natural lubrication and aid sexual arousal and libido in men and women. It helps ensure you are ready for sex, rather than having to wait for your body to catch up.
It is especially useful for post-menopausal women, when the vaginal wall may thin and lubrication doesn’t readily occur. Used sensitively, the women’s enhancement gel can add a sense of play and affection to love making. The idea is to massage a pea-sized drop of the sex gel directly into her intimate areas during foreplay.
Applied to the genitals 10 to 15 minutes before love making, the specially formulated ingredients in Ignite Intimate Gel lube help smooth the physical aspects of love making as well as heighten sexual response and encourage better orgasms. Amongst its benefits, Ignite Intimate Gel:
- Helps natural lubrication.
- Increases satisfaction.
- Optimises sexual response and orgasm.
- Is totally natural and is gentle on the skin, with no irritation.
Formulated by Dr. Fernanda da Silva Tatley, a specialist in medical microbiology with 30 years of scientific experience, Ignite Intimate Gel combines aphrodisiac rainforest herbs and the amino acid L-Arginine with pure vanilla.
This organic gel for sex also includes the famed South American herbal blend Seven Roots, a well-proven Peruvian sex enhancer and libido booster. L-Arginine is a newly discovered sexual stimulant, which clinical studies have shown lifts libido and increases both the quality of sexual sensations and frequency of orgasm.
- L-Arginine increases blood flow to the genitals, enhancing arousal.
- 71 percent of the women in one L-Arginine study reported increased sexual desire and felt happier with their sex lives.
Ignite Intimate Gel sex gel also includes Damiana, a shrub grown in Central America, used historically to increase sexual desire. Damiana is known as the ‘ultimate feel good herb’ for women because it helps balance female hormone levels, control hot flushes and is renowned its libido enhancing qualities.
