As you may have noticed, I’ve digressed from the End Game posts over the last week or so. I’ll be in Israel until later this week, and I’ll continue End Game on the 25th. Until then, here’s another post on game tactics/techniques….
1. The Passive Hand Hold
This is hand holding in its simplest form: your target’s hand gently but firmly cupped in yours. It’s most appropriate for public environments where you want to remain tasteful and avoid looking “clingy,” but is still a great, effective way to add physical contact.
2. The Intertwined Fingers Hand
Hold A step up from the Passive Hand Hold, Intertwined Fingers provides a firmer grip and an increased sense of intimacy. This type of hand holding is perfect while taking a walk together, but it can have a downside of sweaty palms, so make sure to keep your hands dry.
3. The One-Finger Hand Hold
Holding just one of your target’s fingers is a more romantically playful method for times when you’re feeling flirtatious. This is the easiest hand hold for your target to pull away from, but is great to test for higher level of compliance.
4. The Massaging Hand Hold
Turning a simple hand-holding session into a relaxing massage is a wonderful intimate surprise to give your target. There’s an art to a massage, and an unlimited number of ways you can caress your target’s hands and give attention to each finger. This hand-holding method is best used while sitting down and isolated!
5. The Two-Hand Hold
Here’s another technique that is tough to do while standing, but one of the best ways to add some serious physicality and intimacy to hand holding. Taking your target’s hand in both of yours will give her a deep sense of comfort, importance and relaxation.
6. The Palm Caress Hand
Hold This method is an intimate, secret way to tastefully caress your target’s hand without being noticed by others around you. This way you can escalate the handhold in set. Starting with the Passive or Intertwined Fingers technique, use one of your fingers to gently rub your sweetheart’s palm in an up-and-down or swirling fashion. This also indicates sexual contact and great way to test if your target is ready to go!
7. The Kissing Hand Hold
The Kissing Hand Hold is perfect for intimate situations when you’re isolated with your special someone, and is often combined with the Two-Hand Hold. Clean hands are perfect for kissing, and you should never be afraid to shower your target’s fingertips, palms and wrists with gentle romantic pecks! Ideal to do before a full kiss close.
8. The Gentle Pinching Hand Hold
This one isn’t right for every set, and can be a little too playful and rough for some target’s. But gently pinching your lover’s fingertips and palms, if done correctly, can be an exciting, fun experience for you and your target, as long as you make sure you don’t do it too hard and you calibrate.
9. The Warm-Up Hand Hold
When it’s cold outside, there’s no better way to warm up your fingers than by having them caressed and rubbed lovingly. Don’t make your target use a heater when you have two perfectly good, warm hands to help them out! Combine this technique with the Massaging Hand Hold for a bigger effect.
10. The The Morse-Code Hand Hold
This is the most unorthodox and interactive hand-holding technique, but can be a heck of a lot of fun if you teach your target a few codes prior to doing. You must agree ahead of time of a phrase that you want to share with each other silently–such as “That girl/guy is stupid”–and assign it a number of squeezes that correspond with the syllables in the phrase. Your target will remember that when you squeeze three times it means “That-girl/guy-is-stupid” . . . and can respond with a one-squeeze “yeap”! This will allow you to create conspiracy through kino.
