Keep In Touch
More to the point, the skin contains lots of nerve receptors. There are many different kinds of receptors. There are receptors for detecting mechanical stimulation, pain, heat, and location. Just as the types of nerve receptors varies, so does their density in the skin. Certain parts of the skin are more sensitive than others due to a higher number of nerve receptors per square inch. Of special note is that the hands and lips have a higher concentration of pleasure receptors.
Human skin is designed to feel, to touch and be touched. Engaged couples and newlyweds spend a lot of time touching: holding hands, kissing, hugging, tickling, running fingers through hair and so forth. Touching is an important aspect of human courtship and relationships.
Of course, its as important after marriage to touch is it is during courtship. Here some ideas, inc ase you've forgotten:
* running your finger through your sweetie's hair
* a neck and back rub
* foot and hand massages
Holding hands is a great way to touch and be touched.
