Ball Play for Beginners

Grab life by the balls, especially for some added stimulation.

 

At this point, we all know that the testicles are an incredibly sensitive part of the body. We tend to keep that fact tucked away, not intending to use that information unless absolutely necessary. But we’d like to encourage you to use this knowledge for good. 

Showing the balls some love has the potential to dramatically increase your partner’s satisfaction, but it may also have health benefits. According to Healthline, testicle play can increase blood circulation and boost sperm production.

 

Things to Keep in Mind

Before you get started, make sure your partner is comfortable with you fondling them. The balls are a very sensitive part of the body, and not everyone wants them touched.

And most importantly, don’t forget the lube. Even though it’s not penetration per se, friction is something best avoided. We like this lube from Wicked Sensual Care, and of course, we endorse the Lion’s Den Pure and Natural lubricant. Just warm it up in your hands a little before you get started. Of course, you want to surprise your partner, but not in that way.

 

Incorporate Them into Your Regular Activities

The next time you’re going down on your partner, use one hand to cup his balls. You can massage them, tug gently, or any other stimulation you think your partner might enjoy. You might also try including them directly in your oral activities. If that’s not your thing or you’d like to work your way up, you can start with a lick or two. Then, if you are up for it, take a little in your mouth or the whole thing.

During regular sex, don’t neglect them. If your position allows it (something like Reverse Cowgirl or Doggy Style might be the most conducive), reach down or back and cup them in your hands. Then, much like you’d stimulate them during oral or a hand job, give your partner’s balls some attention. Some ball-handling might be just what your partner needs to take their climax from good to show-stopping. 

And if you’re flying solo, you can still show yourself some love by going a bit further south and giving your own testicles some attention. You’re safe to cup them, squeeze them, twist them, or anything else that strikes your fancy. They are yours, after all.

Bust Out the Toys

Toys are for everybody, every activity, and can improve any experience for any person or couple. So if you want something to give your testicles a little attention, you have a few options.

The Offinity Cock Ring helps dramatically extend your erection. It constricts blood flow in your penis and testicles. It’s a snug-fitting, classic option. 

If you’re interested in something with a little more oomph, try something like the DoubleO Vibrating Cockring. It constricts your blood flow to enhance your erection, but it also provides extra stimulation with its single-speed vibrator. As a result, it enhances pleasure for you and potentially your partner’s pleasure if you want to include it in coupled activities. 

But why stop with your balls? The Verge by We-Vibe  is worn around the penis and testicles to massage the perineum during sex, which is another nerve-dense part of the body. The Verge stimulates with gentle pressure and rumbly vibrations that you can enjoy, or you and your partner. It comes with an app that allows you to control its features and functions, so it’s perfect for any tech-lover.

However you choose to incorporate the balls into your escapades, do what feels good. Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment with what feels best.

Love Your Balls

We love balls at Lion’s Den! It is why we partnered with The Testicular Cancer Society to raise awareness for testicular cancer - the most common form of cancer in men aged 15-35. You can support their mission by rounding up your purchase at your local Lion’s Den or when you shop online in April.
