Sensation play can involve the deprivation of sense imputs such as wearing a blindfold. It can also involve the stimulation of the senses by using feathers or tickling. In His Need, Her Desire, the sensation play is primarily temperature play, the application of hot and cold, though a blindfold is involved too!
Marcus, our hero, utilizes wax and ice to create a series of sensual sensations for his partner, Tabitha. Wax play, like all such activities, needs to be safe, sane and consensual. Different waxes melt at different temperatures, so care must be taken not to burn the recipient. The application of the wax can produce in an artistic result on the skin, particularly if multiple colors are used.
Ice play is often utilized with wax for contrast. Ice can also be uniquely shaped for use. The melting slipperiness can lead to some interesting situations! Ice is often one of the easy entry points into sensation play.

His Need, Her Desire Blurb
Tabitha Quinn didn’t come to Hawaii to be spanked. But when vacationing businessman Marcus Granger saves her from drowning, they begin an affair that moves from the beach to the bedroom and straight into an experience Tabitha’s never had before: dark-haired, blue-eyed Marcus is a dominant, and spanking is just the beginning. The sex is intense, the emotion even more so, until they both must decide if this is a holiday fling or the real thing.
His Need, Her Desire Excerpt
Tabitha’s smile grew wide. She held out her hand. “Really, I can’t thank you enough for your help.”
He held her hand in a firm grasp a shade longer than necessary, but Tabitha didn’t mind. She enjoyed looking at him. Though he had probably shaved that morning, an attractive shadow highlighted his chin and strong jawline.
“I’m glad I was in the right place.”
Tabitha released his hand. “So, where’s your sister?”
“My sister? How did you know?”
Tabitha bit her lip. “I’m sorry to say that I eavesdropped a bit. I was sitting near you at dinner last evening.”
“Eavesdropping? That seems extremely naughty.”
Tabitha was caught off guard by the tone of his voice. He was teasing, and yet, there was a thread of authority running through his words. Tabitha tried to suppress a shiver. “Well, sometimes I just can’t help myself.”
Marcus appeared disarmed by her honesty. “Are you traveling with anyone?”
Tabitha gave him a playful look. “Why do you ask?”
Marcus smiled. “Because I’m interested in knowing the answer, of course.”
“Well, if you’re thinking about ditching my body at sea, I’ve got six family members waiting for me in my hotel room upstairs. If you’re thinking about asking me to dinner, there is no reason why you shouldn’t.” Tabitha amazed herself. Where is this coming from? This man brought something out in her. She’d bet those broad shoulders and sexy smile had enticed many a woman.
He laughed. “You have nothing to worry about. I never use force, unless of course, it is desired.”
“Oh?” The truth burst into her mind. It suddenly became clear that he was fishing around a bit. There had been several hints here and there, but it seemed like he might be looking for a certain sort of woman. No, he couldn’t be. I’m imagining things.
“It’s true. I would be pleased if you joined me for dinner this evening.”
Tabitha did a mental fist pump in her mind. Woohoo! Dinner with Gorgeous Guy. “What did you have in mind?”
“Would you be averse to allowing me to surprise you?”
Tabitha hesitated then plunged ahead. “Not at all. It’s clear you have excellent taste.”
Marcus raised an eyebrow. “What makes you say that?”
“Well, we both dined at the same restaurant last night, and I thought it was terrific.”
“Ah, well, my meal was less than pleasant unfortunately.” His tone indicated the subject was off-limits.
“Perhaps it was the company and not the food?”
Marcus laughed. “You are undoubtedly right and surprisingly honest.”
“My mother would say that my tongue is quicker than my brain.”
The corners of Marcus’s mouth lifted. “I’ve always been a fan of quick tongues.”
