Japanese Sento and Skinship

Sento (or銭湯) is the name for a Japanese communal bathhouse. As many provincial or even basic city centre accommodations do not have a bathroom it is still a day-to-day occurrence for many Japanese people to visit these seemingly archaic spots. Sento is pay per entrance and prices are usually very cheap, less than a couple of pounds a visit. Since more and more Japanese homes have baths there has been a gradual decline in the use of Sento bathhouses. However many, especially older people, relish the social experience of Sento and defend its value.

In Japanese culture there is a theory that physical proximity, or intimacy, fufills the basic human need for emotional intimacy and sharing a space with other naked humans provides this much desired experience otherwise absence in many people’s lives. This is refereed to by Japanese people as ‘skinship’, a pseudo English term for the fulfilment of this need.

In the West we often experience feelings of extreme loneliness, even when enjoying an avid social life, when physical intimacy is lacking in our private lives. The absence of another human meeting our sexual needs is sorely felt and can have adverse psychological affects. In the worst case scenario loneliness can lead to feelings of isolation and even depression. In keeping with the Japanese notion of ‘skinship’, erotic massage it is widely reported to alleviate these feelings of lack and is a valuable tool for maintaining a healthy lifestyle alongside a busy schedule that may not allow for romantic relationships.


Imagine the many benefits of having all your physical needs met by one of Love Tantric London
’s stunning and caring masseuses. There is no questioning the value of sharing unique moments of intimacy with one of our beautiful girls, be that in the context of a classic tantric massage or the greater intimacy of a body-to-body experience. Each of Love Tantric London’s beautiful girls is not only expertly trained to meet your needs but is carefully selected for not only her looks but her caring nature and intuitive ability to meet the needs of her clients in an intimate setting. Amongst the many benefits of erotic baggage, the emotional virtues of relieving stress, releasing negative energy and of physical intimacy are often ignored when they are amongst the greatest gifts a masseuse has to offer.
