When you hear the term nuru massage, your first associations may be tied to weird, naked body rubbing often ending with sex. The internet is full of pornographic material branded as “nuru” which has often tarnished its reputation. True nuru, however, while being indeed performed naked and not shying away from sensuality and erotic stimulation, has little to do with an actual sex. Here we hope to clarify this misconception and help you get a clearer picture of this remarkable procedure.
While eroticism plays its part in nuru massage, it’s not the be-all and end-all
It’s no big secret that a so-called happy ending – meaning orgasm – is one of the perks that made this massage famous. It’s also no secret that its history is tied with prostitution – when it became illegal in Japan in the second half of the 20th century, many former prostitutes have switched trades and became masseuses offering soapy, body-to-body rubdowns without direct sex. Thusnuru was gradually born.
Don’t let its origins in the seedy underbelly of Japan’s red-light districts fool you. What made this massage a mainstay is not the so-called happy ending, though it certainly plays its part, but a genuine therapeutic quality it offers. There are some who put it above normal sex in terms of relief and overall satisfaction!
So what makes it so special exactly?
Well, there are many types of massage, erotic or not, but what really sets nuru apart is that it involves the whole body of the masseuse in the action. The sensual tension and arousal the skilled movements and body rubbing provide is indescribable. An exciting, full-body contact without direct penetration can whip up erotic desire like nothing else, before it’s being granted a satisfying release via a “happy ending”.This usually happens by hand, but other, creative ways are also possible.
Let’s not forget the special gel that eases every movement
Where some other rubdowns use oil to smoothen things up a bit, nuru is famous for its use of a special gel. Made out of Nori seaweed, this gel has no taste or odour and is easily dissolvable in water – a simple after shower will wash it off thoroughly. It is used for its perfect consistency and slippery quality which makes it a good lubricant that eases the sliding movements which are a trademark of nuru. There are other things to point out regarding the seaweed. As most seaweeds are tied with health benefits – be it in any form, Nori seaweed is full of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants which nourish and hydrate your skin and make it look fresher and younger.
Improved blood flow, emotional connection – there’s more in store
- Improved blood circulation
- Boosting the immune system
- Stress relief
- Emotional experience
- Strengthened libido
And much more. As every massage, nuru too relaxes tense muscles, therefore contributing to an increased blood flow. The result is a faster nourishing of cells in your body and also a faster disposal of toxins, which directly translates into the boosting of your immune system. Unlike with a standard rubdown, the erotic aspect of nuru also ensures plentiful release of sexual hormones. These have a significant mood-improving and stress-relieving effect. As they linger in your bloodstream, you may find your sex drive spiking long after the massage is over.
What’s more, there is a genuine emotional connection to be experienced during nuru. The intimacy and both the gentle and passionate care given to you makes this a very personal experience. It may profoundly improve your confidence and self-image and self-acceptance. But that’s a story for another time…
Nuru is not a run-of-the-mill sexual service, but also not a standard rubdown. Its origins make it a matter of controversy, as does the “happy ending”.Still, its benefits are many and undeniable.And its popularity testifies by itself.
