“Sensuality is, in essence, how in tune you are with your senses. Do you notice smells, textures, sounds? How sensual you are plays a key role not only in your sex life but in your overall ability to derive pleasure from life as a whole. Find out what the use of your senses implies about your world and love with this sensuality test.”
I took the test. Apparently, I’m a “B” sensuality student.
When I started the test, my self perception was that I was way lacking in my sensual skills. I compare myself to my friends who I see as being very sensual — I don’t have orgasms just from kissing, I don’t open a champagne bottle by holding it between my legs and sensually pulling out the cork, and I certainly don’t seem to get as much pleasure out of delicious foods as some of my friends do.
One of the first questions on the test further reinforced by story about my lack of sensuality. It asked, how do you tell whether an item in a store is real leather? My first instinct would be to check the tag. But the question had other options too… like touch it or smell it. It was interesting to realize that I wouldn’t have thought of smelling something to tell if it was leather.
But then as the questions went on, I realized that many of my natural instincts are indeed very sensual. I love to sleep in the nude; I like to stand close to people and give extra long, full body hugs; and using products on my body that leave it feeling silky or soft.
The survey also helped me see categories where my senses aren’t as finely tuned as they could be: around music, food, smells and touch.
The results seem pretty spot on — I enjoy my senses AND there is room to enjoy them more. I’m grateful to have sensual friends who model for me just how much more pleasure is possible.
