Soma Sensuous

The following is part two of a presentation of evoking images and words to inspire and nurture one’s sensuality. Sensuality is something you feel inside (like an emotion). Sensuality, like bliss (happiness) can be self nurtured. Upon cultivating one’s inner sensuality it can then be expressed outwardly and shared intimately with a partner.

Sensuality is intrinsic, it is part of one’s inner being. Because sensuality is part of our natural being it can be awakened, evoked from within. When kindled sensuality is released to the conscious mind.

Ancient lovers believed a kiss would literally unit their souls,
because the spirit was said to be carried in one’s breath.

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

Start with my mind, touch me there first.

Her mind is deliciously improper and her body is an aphrodisiac. Alfredo Cano

Sensuality is beauty and pleasure that flows from within and radiates outwardly. Sensuality is an intimate mind body experience.

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

Sexuality is at its best when the senses are alive and full. Touch can be soothing, exciting, or challenging. Taste allows people to sample each other’s uniqueness. Hearing a lover’s sounds of arousal or satisfaction can feel like music. Taking in the musk of a lover’s special odors are an aphrodisiac in and of themselves. Seeing authentically into another’s heart and soul can bring an intertwinement that can make two lovers feel as one. Randi Gunther Ph.D.

The senses and sense perception 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 (sexual energy) 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 (affects pleasure brain center for men and women). Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life. Beethoven

A whisper so intimate . . . sensual.

Smell (olfactory stimuli)
For both male and female, smell is a significant sexual sense. There’s a direct sensory pathway between the olfactory bulb located high up in the nasal passages 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).

It’s one of the first things you notice, that you smell, during an embrace. The warmth of your lover’s hair. The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro 2013

Ylang ylang has a delicate, jasmine like (only much more exotic) scent that is masculine while allowing a most seductive feminine allure to leave you and your partner 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 behavior during which we smell and taste our partner to decide if they are a match.

Smell and Emotion are coupled. In addition to being the sense most closely linked to memory, smell is also highly emotive. The olfactory sense connects not to the memory itself, but to the emotion felt when the memory was made.

Scent perception is uniquely intimate, a rather private experience.

A perfume is an intimate object, it is the reflection of the heart.
Emanuel Ungaro (born 1933)

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.

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 72% 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 is tempting.

soma-kissTouch (tactile stimuli) creates an intimate conversation between your fingers and your partners 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.

Touch creates sensation.

At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet. Plato

so sensuality traverses the body and reaches up to ecstasy.
Anaïs Nin
