The Wonderful Feeling of SKIN

    Ever move around in bed and place your hand on your shoulder, or your thigh, and thought, man that's soft. Ooo, it feels so good.?

    What makes skin so appealing? When two people are together and skin touches, what happens? What causes that OMG feeling? Is it pheromones we are breathing in, or is something else going on?

    Typical thought process (at least in my mind):

    "Oh man he's sweating. That's kinda hot. Actually, it's really hot. Oh yeah, sweat all over me man. Love it!"

    "Damn, his hairy legs are up against my face. Fuck yeah man, hairy legs!"

    LOL

    Your thoughts? icon_wink.gif

    I rub my stomach often, its so calming to feel it yet it gets me super excited too. I'm sure its something from my childhood because I've done it as long as I can remember.

    I also believe the whole skin touching thing is a mind thing. For example ever sit close to someone with your legs touching. Its only when you think of it that you either move your leg or react somehow.

    I sleep with my hand on my stomach or my BF's. I have done that since I was a little kid too.

    It probably triggers the release of hormones related to relationships and love. Oxytocin and Vasopressin are among the most studied. Interestingly, in some animals it compels them to be monogamous and paternal/maternal but in others it doesn't do that at all.

    You had a bf when you were a kid?icon_eek.gif


    LOL Funny you should ask...

    No (and I was trying to figure out how to phrase accordingly), how about "I've done that since I was a little kid, too. Now sometimes I substitute my BF's"

    I'll randomly stimulate my pacinian corpuscles and meissner corpuscles just for the thrill of feeling something in my fingertips, along my cheek, or along the back of my calf.

    It's psychological, a phenomenon referred to as "skin hunger." It's the reason babies are calmed when their backs are stroked. It's the reason lonely old ladies get cats. There's a psychological need to touch and be touched.

    I like to stroke the back of my thighs and up to my butt. The hair on the skin, and the long sensuous strokes are calming, yet exciting.

    Sometimes at work when I'm thinking I touch around my ear or stroke my the underside I my forearm. If my dog is feeling cuddly and sleeps on the pillow next to me I'll bury my face in her back so I can feel her breathe. It's very soothing and I fall asleep almost instantaneously.

    That is one thing I miss about a bf

    Umm..I dunno.

    I run my hand over my face and it gets stuck in deep craters called wrinkles. Then I continue down my shoulder and stumble over another obstacle called acne.

    Granted some do have silky smooth skin.icon_smile.gif
