It's almost better than sex.

by Becca Simone

Some nights, I actually prefer this to sex.

No, I’m not talking chocolate. I’m talking a great foot massage.

Having someone rub my feet is the ultimate in luxury. It makes me feel pampered, special, and most of all it just feels damn good.

Here’s how to give the perfect foot massage.

Step 1: Make sure your lover's feet are clean. There’s nothing less sexy than stinky feet LOL. Soak feet in warm water for 5-10 minutes. You can include a few drops of your favorite essential oil if you want. While one foot continues to soak, lift the other one out and thoroughly pat dry with a fluffy towel.

Step 2: Have your lover sit in a comfortable chair and elevate his/her foot on a padded stool. Kneel in front of them.

Step 3: Apply a liberal amount of thick cream or mineral oil to your hands. Keep the bottle nearby for more application.

Step 4: Start massaging the top of the foot, with long sweeping motions from toes to ankle. Spend about a minute here.

Step 5: Move to the instep, with sweeping motions again at first, then use your thumb in small circles to apply deeper pressure. Spend another minute here.

Step 6: Move to the sole of the foot, rubbing the thumbs across the arch, from the heel to the ball of the foot. Focus on the arch for a minute or so, kneading and pressing into the tight muscles with your thumbs and knuckles.

Step 7: Focus for a minute or so on the ball of the foot, pressing into the area between each of the toes. Use a pressing, circular motion.

Step 8: Turn your focus to each toe, starting with the baby toe. Rub each toe between your fingers, then after all the toes have been massaged, slide your index fingers between each toe 5-6 times. Then, slide all your fingers between all their toes at once. Slowly slide your fingers in and out, 5-6 times.

Step 9: Wipe all the excess cream or oil from the foot, and cover the foot with a cotton sock or footie.

Step 10: Start again at Step 1 with the other foot.

Step 11 (THE most important step): Change places and have your partner give YOU a foot massage.

Whatever comes next is entirely up to you...

This unfairness is why Becca's heroes ALL love giving foot massages to her heroines. In fact, it's a rule. You can learn more about Becca at her website.

Oh, I so agree. If a man really wanted to seduce me, he'd give me a heavenly foot massage. I also love giving them.

And, yes, the hero must know the sensual art of foot massaging.

Nothing better than a foot massage. It's its own reward. I believe in Chinese medicine that there are points on the soles of the foot that correspond to the genitals. Ha!
