The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and cheer, but last-minute holiday shopping can turn the season into a complete nightmare. As we edge into the last few days before Christmas, if you're still searching for that perfect gift for your partner, you're probably feeling more terror and stress than joy and cheer.

Instead of searching for the perfect object, why not get your partner an awesome experience? Our top recommendation: An online sensual massage course!

Sensual massages are an awesome way to build intimacy and connection with a partner. Massage can help you connect with different areas of your body that provide you pleasure. Plus, the empathy and communication skills used to give and receive an amazing massage are some of the same skills needed for amazing sex!

The holidays are supposed to be a time for giving, so why not get the gift that keeps on giving? (Orgasms, people, we mean orgasms.)

We've partnered with Beducated to help spread the word about their awesome sensual massage courses! All of which are $20 off right up till Christmas Day!

These step-by-step programs break down everything you need to know about giving and receiving tantric, yoni or lingam sensual massages. The courses include over 30 massage techniques that are explained with visual and verbal instructions.

Do I get it for myself or for my partner?

Our best recommendation is to purchase one of the courses as an activity you can do together. If you want to buy one before Christmas and learn all the techniques to surprise your partner, totally feel free to do so, but taking the course together is also a great idea.

As you learn the different techniques and movements you'll have each other nearby to experiment and play with. It's also a great opportunity to help you build a larger understanding of your and your partner's bodies. Use the course as an opportunity to work on your sex communication skills (something we could all stand to work on); as you move through the five modules make sure to take time to tell your partner which parts of the module you liked best, both giving and receiving.

Plus, if you make a pact to do the course together, you'll have designated time to spend with one another, and more importantly, designated time to focus on giving and receiving pleasure. The holiday season is absurdly busy for most of us. Try to set aside some time to work through a module together, and then leave room to practices your new techniques on each other.

I'm living and loving the single life, can I take the course?

Hell yes, you can! Beducated offers the yoni and lingam massage course both bundled and as solo options. All the courses feature self-massage modules that help guide you through how to experience new sensations in your solo play! Plus, even if you don't have a partner to practice with, you can still bank that knowledge to use at a later date!

Besides, one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and your future partner is having a better understanding of what kinds of touch and sensations you enjoy. It's self-taught sex education! You're helping to build the groundwork for even more satisfying sex in the future.

Knowledge is the Gift That Never Expires

Okay so we know that that sounds ultra cheesy, but it's true. The skills you and your partner can learn in Beducated courses are ones that you can continue to use for years to come! You'll figure out new ways to experience and provide pleasure.

What is better than exploring a new kind of pleasure? You may even reach levels of sensation that you've never experienced before! There are so many different spheres in the sex world, it does't hurt to try as many as can!

Besides, would you rather give and receive mind blowing orgasms or a new sweater this holiday season? The choice is up to you!
