KY Intimacy Experiment Day #6

Day 6 of the KY Intimacy Experiment is “Getting Back in Touch” and you guessed it, its about TOUCH. We have learned that touching, hugging, and things of that sort can increase oxytocin, “the cuddle hormone” that makes us feel safe and loved. However, according to the pamphlet, it can also improve physical health by lowering blood pressure and other stress markers.

My husband and I are pretty affectionate I guess. We hold hands when we are together, we kiss throughout the day, and sit right underneath each other when we aren’t off doing our own thing on the computer or TV. So for our day exercise, it says to brainstorm different ways to touch your partner in positive, loving way. 10 ideas, pretty easy right?

Some examples include:

  • Hugging (try a few 30-second hugs from Day Two of the program!)
  • Holding hands 
  • Snuggling or cuddling while watching TV or a movie 
  • Kissing (not just “hello” and “goodbye” but “just because)
  • Playing footsie under the table at dinner
  • Lightly touching him or her on the arm or leg while talking
  • Offering a quick foot or neck massage at the end of the day
It also says to try to mix up your touches with a mix of naughty and nice sensations.  This was so easy but I have to admit, I wasn’t very inventive.  We kissed, we hugged, I grabbed his butt, he slapped mine when I was bent over the dishwasher, etc.  It was fun and kinda like being not being IT in tag because I was on guard  trying to figure out what he was gonna do next.
The night activity I will leave to your imagination but it was suggested that you give each other an erotic massage and gives some tips on how to do this! I anticipated this all day. Not for the erotic part, though that was nice, but for the massage. Hey, I am a working mom and I wouldn’t turn down a massage any day of the week and I know my husband feels the same.
