Does anyone else find having their back touched (by someone they trust) to just be so incredibly soothing?

I don;t know how to explain it but when I'm stressed or afraid, when someone rubs my back (and by rubs, I mean glides their hands over, not massages) it is just so calming. And it's even stronger with skin to skin; it feels like there is just this soothing energy radiating out from their hands when they rub my back. It feels so good it's hypnotic <3 <3 <3

  • I love it.
    A friend of mine always gives me really good back massages on the bus ride home, and it puts me to sleep.

      My mom always gives me shoulder massages when she comes over (and given the sise of my bust it is so relaxing) :P

  • there is a biological reason for this. it is shown that human contact (touching) can cause the brain to release the hormone oxytocin (sometimes called the "love hormone") which has an anti-depressant like effect on the body.

    this hormone relaxes the body and can facilitate bonding (thus why they say place a new born baby on the chest of the mother and father as soon as it is born)

  • Just touching in general can make a person feel good, especially for someone who's often lonely/alone - whether it's a handshake, a hug or any other kind of touch..

  • Pets seem to love getting rubbed. I don't see why humans wouldn't either. I think it's just a thing all animals love to have done to them. It stimulates the nerve endings.

  • Yeah it's always been a very sensitive spot for me and my boyfriend knows what to do with it. Both for relaxation and "other things." It has many uses 😆

  • Oh yes😍 Me and this guy I dated were about to watch a movie, I was sitting and he was laying on his back, he did that to my back, and I felt like I got this tiny orgasm. I put my glass down and kissed him right away. And that's how my first kiss happened...

  • No, I don't. I hate when people try to touch my shoulders or my back. It feels wrong to me and I get a nauseous kind of feeling. My mother and my sister both have attempted to massage my shoulders from behind (without asking first), and I shrug them away from me. It makes me feel vulnerable and unsafe.
