A new report from a leading body of evidence indicates that men who have experienced “massage” for the first time can actually have a hard time avoiding it, and their “comfort levels” can also be higher.
This could be because they’re more likely to experience a “tremendous” amount of pressure from their partners, according to the study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
In addition, a higher percentage of men say they can “relieve tension” and that their partner is “less likely to want to be in touch.”
In other words, if you’ve been in a relationship for a while, and have been able to get to know your partner well enough to start using the massage as a form of relaxation, you might be able to take a step toward eliminating that dreaded massage.
This article has been updated with new information about the new study.
