The rich sounds of your man's voice or the sweet tones of your girlfriend's laugh: something almost physical happens when your partner has that something-something in his voice. Whispering can be calming or very, very exciting. Just being close to the ear can create a kind of electricity for some people -- not to mention the breathing or the nibbling.
I like hearing the sounds that aren't words: the muttering, the humming or whistling, the mumbling. Try noticing all the different sounds your partner makes and when they show up. Notice as many kinds of tones and emotions, too, when your partner is talking about something important.
Make sure to verbalize your feelings, too. Let your partner know what pleases you and matters to you. If you're comfortable, make more of an effort to communicate your desire with little sounds, which can be very reassuring to our partners. Practice whispering more with each other, which will keep you nearer, too.
