Constant pop culture and movie references capture the idea of a poignant realization we all know: Foot massages are the gateway drug to a better sex life. But even if the sensory experience is the main thing we focus on, there may be more to the concept than simply how good it feels to have your closest companion touching an area of your body full of nerve endings. Studies have come forward in recent years that speak to the possible science behind why foot massages can trigger more interesting, fulfilling sexual experiences for partners everywhere.
Let’s look at some of the science behind the phenomenon, and perhaps help you as a reader to take advantage of the key benefits of foot massage to improve your sex life.
Why the feet are considered erogenous zones
Kama Sutra, the Taoist Points of Love, and other ancient practices show that achieving sexual heights have been a cause for study since the dawn of civilization.

Who are they kidding? Have you had a foot massage?
Packed with nerve endings the slightest touch can be felt deeply. The concept that the study posted immediately above covers, actually lends credence to the idea that reflexology has something more to do with the foot than we ever thought before, and that sexual gratification can be improved through proper touch therapy.

Other studies dive into this topic as an abstract as well.

Foot massage for sex life improvement without a partner performing the massage
Not everyone has a single partner or desires to share a proclivity towards feet with certain partners, and it’s not necessary to even have a partner perform foot massage to get the benefits. But it definitely can be part of your sex life if you want.
Absent a partner for whatever reason, you can facilitate sexual health, gratification, and better climax through implementing proper techniques.
One such platform involves a combination of automatic massage, delivered by a foot massager, and the use of selective reflexology to trigger certain responses and impact internal organs and bodily functions to enhance sexual pleasure and health in the future.
You’ll want to understand the points of reference for improving these, however, and remember, it’s important to utilize best practices together for enhanced results. Incremental improvements can add up.
