If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all of my life. Oscar Wilde
The united beat of sex and heart together creates ecstasy. Anais Nin
Her mind is deliciously improper and her body is an aphrodisiac. Alfredo Cano
Ancient lovers believed a kiss would literally unit their souls,
because the spirit was said to be carried in one’s breath.
Confidence is among the sexiest attributes a woman can have.
Sensuous . . . affecting the senses in a pleasing way: pleasant, attractive, or appealing in a way that produces or suggests feelings of physical or sexual pleasure.
I could smell his scent; a mixture of amber, honey and apples mixed with his own skin’s oils and the brisk winter air. Something deep inside me responded to the fragrance. I felt as if I could lose myself in it. Wrap it around me like a cashmere shawl and be forever warmed.
Mj Rose. The Witch of Painted Sorrows 2015
The senses play a pivotal role in the sexual arousal and response of men and women. The five traditional senses include sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste.
Sight when a man sees something that he finds arousing, testosterone is released into his bloodstream. Testosterone affects libido in both women and men. The most beautiful words of love are told in silence for a look. Leonardo da Vinci
Hearing (auditory stimuli)
Mood-setting music is sensuous and alluring. Hearing music with a low beat like reggae, Bossa Nova, soul, or love songs resonate vibrations through the lower body. These vibrations invoke sensual and sexual energy.
Additionally, the hormone oxytocin creates a sense of well-being, closeness, bonding and trust (for men & women). Oxytocin is released by auditory stimuli. As such, pillow talk can be experienced somewhat like an auditory/spoken massage, invoking warmth, trust and openness (again affects pleasure for men and women).
Smell (olfactory stimuli)
For both male and female, smell is a significant sexual sense. There’s a direct sensory pathway between the olfactory bulb above the nose and the arousal center of the brain. Cinnamon and clover, are scents that subtly invoke desire in men. The plant oils of jasmine, and rose invoke sensuality and desire in women (aphrodisiac).
Ylang ylang has a delicate, jasmine like (only much more exotic) floral scent that is masculine while allowing a most seductive feminine allure to leave you absolutely enchanted.
Smell is extremely important when it comes to attraction between two people. Research has shown that our body odor, produced by the genes which make up our immune system, can help us subconsciously choose our partners. Kissing is thought by some scientists to have developed from sniffing; that first kiss being essentially a primal behaviour during which we smell and taste our partner to decide if they are a match.
Smell and Emotion, in addition to being the sense most closely linked to memory, smell is also highly emotive.
A perfume is an intimate object, it is the reflection of the heart.
Emanuel Ungaro (born 13 February 1933)
Scent is the most powerful memory trigger.
Pheromones are odorless chemical signals. They are released through sweat glands after interaction with the skin’s natural bacterial microflora. Once smelled, pheromones tend to affect (arouse) the behavior of one’s sexual partner. Pheromones are thought to be present in bodily secretions such as urine, semen or vaginal secretions, breast milk, saliva and breath. Certain foods can increase pheromones.
The axillary sweat pheromones are steroid structure components: androstadienone, androstenone and androstenol. Of these steroids, androstadienone appears to have the most robust effects upon both sexes; particularly upon women. Sweat derived pheromones are like a chemical signature. For example research indicates, adult can identify their own worn T-shirts out of 100 identical shirts worn by others. Family members can also identify T-shirts belonging to their partners, children and siblings.
Oil diffusers are a safe way to release sensual scents throughout the bedroom.
Dopamine is one of the brain’s feel good chemicals; this neurotransmitter also boosts female libido and sexual pleasure. Dopamine levels are increased by the bioflavonoids in dark chocolate. Enjoy chocolate with 70% cocoa or greater to increase dopamine. The herb fennel acts like an aphrodisiac for women. Fennel is a natural phytoestrogens (estrogen like chemicals found in plants). Fennel is available as a tea, or herbal supplement, aim for organic.
Touch (tactile stimuli) the conversation between your fingers and someones skin.
Physical contact (the tactile sense) is pre-eminent stimuli for sexual arousal in women. Pacini’s corpuscles within the skin are mechanoreceptors designed to detect pressure. They populate the oral lips, penis, clitoris, and nipples. Pacini’s corpuscles are located in the deep portion of the dermis (middle skin layer) and in the subcutaneous fat (bottom skin layer). The well-being hormone oxytocin is released by tactile interaction such as suckling and massage.
