We Are Sound

The sounds that you make during sex are manyfold, as I'm sure you'll all agree. However, there's one rather permeating sound that I've noticed recently, although to be honest, it's conspicuous by its absence more than anything else (as I haven't been in bed with a naked girl for... must be coming up to a few days now; once you get started it's hard to stop, n'est-ce pas?). And that's the sound of skin against skin.

I love skin. Naked skin. It's beautiful; it looks great, it feels great, it carries a lot of significance, and the sound of naked skin against naked skin is something I have been thinking about all morning.

Of course, if you are engaged in rather rigorous love-making, then there are other sounds your bodies make that aren't from your mouth - the rather stomach-turning 'slap' of a pelvic thrust is one of them. I didn't even know sex made that sound until I watched hard porn for the first time (having been brough up on a diet of softcore smut found on L!VE TV and Bravo, I wasn't even aware sex made a sound of its own accord). But there's nothing like the aforementioned skin sound, and I think I know why:

It's soft.

That's right, that's why I think I like it so much. I like soft pillows, soft bodies, soft covers, soft porn and soft sweets, so why not soft sounds? Plus, you don't even have to be having sex. You can just be snuggling, or even hugging (although the nakedness is pretty much a prerequisite for this). A low hiss, almost a murmuring sound, and less of a slide than a roll. And next time we wake up together of a morning, I'll rub a hand over her arm, and listen out for the tiny, satisfying sound, like a sigh from the skin.

Friction's never been so sexy.

Hooray for soft sounds!

Never would've thought to write about the sounds of sex myself, so I am so glad someone did.

Loved the post
