Japanese Nuru Massage is a sensual erotic naked body-to-body massage in which participating parties are covered with an odorless, colorless, and tasteless massage lotion or gel called Nuru gel.
The Japanese word Nuru means something like slippery, smooth, glaze or glossy, among other synonymous denotations. Mind that Nuru Massage is also called Nura, Nuru Nuru, Nuru Slide, or Nuru Gel Massage.
In any case, Nuru Massage is an increasingly popular Erotic Massage treatment modality, and offerings can be found virtually everywhere around the globe.
1. Nuru Gel
The Nuru gel is fabricated from brown, reddish Nori seaweed leaves (some claim that the word Nuru is derived from Nori, but this is debatable) and often Chamomile, Azulene, Aloe Vera and specific vitamins or minerals are also added to the lotion.
The gel doesn’t stain or damage clothing, is water soluble, and beneficial in moisturizing and revitalizing skin. The gel can be purchased ready for use or in powder form.
The Nuru Massage therapist gently and sensually rubs, glides, presses, strokes and kneads their entire naked body against the client’s body, which is rubbed in with Nuru gel, trying to get the most complete possible physical contact.
Traditionally, the Nuru Massage therapists are female. Very often, Nuru massages are finished with a sexual act or so-called Happy Ending — or even with a “Full Service” treatment — but this is certainly not the original goal, or even necessary. The treatment is typically performed on beds, massage tables, or couches.
3. Health Benefits
Some of the health benefits of Nuru Massage are muscle relaxation, stress and tension relief, sexual release and relaxation, emotional healing, skin nourishment, detoxification, moisturizing and revitalizing, and if done well and regularly, Nuru Massage is thought to help avoiding recurring premature ejaculation for males.
4. Context in Japan
In Japan, prostitution is officially an illegal activity, but the legal definition of prostitution is limited to paid coitus, that is, paid sexual intercourse (notably vaginal intercourse) with an “unspecified or unknown person.”
In practice, it means that sexual services such as oral sex, anal sex, and all other non-coital sexual acts are considered legal, including Nuru, Body to Body massages, and Soapy massages, if they’re not finished with intercourse.
Nevertheless, the above also means that if you get to know the person beforehand — even in a fifteen minute chat in a night club — the person you will have intercourse with is not longer “unspecified or unknown.” You can figure that this gives plenty of options for “legal prostitution.”
As such, there are a number of loopholes in and liberal interpretations of the Japanese Prostitution Prevention Law of 1957, and combined with a rather loose enforcement, the prostitution, erotic, and sexual services industry in Japan prospers.
