For many people who don’t have balls, they can be a mysterious, even intimidating, anatomical feature. Simultaneously a source of metaphorical power and a supremely delicate body part, the human testicle can seem downright unapproachable. It doesn’t have to be that way! If you’d like to get better acquainted with the balls, read on for some suggestions.

Does Your Partner Want Their Balls Touched?

The most important aspect of any sexual relationship is communication. Always take time to check in with your partner about their likes, dislikes, and boundaries. Although many people enjoy attention to their balls during sex play, some would prefer you to avoid them entirely. Before trying anything new, make sure your partner’s on board—and check in at regular intervals to see how it feels.

The Scrotum Is Where It’s At

While the entire testicular region—testes, tubes, and sack—is colloquially referred to as “the balls,” sex play is generally confined to the scrotum, the pouch of skin and muscle encasing the testicles. Think of the scrotum as a stretchy, resilient sock holding precious, fragile eggs. It can be tugged, stretched, even gently nibbled—as long as its contents are never squeezed or otherwise roughly handled.

Use Your Mouth To Stimulate The Balls

When in doubt, start slow, and start gentle. Applying a little tongue is the perfect way to ease into scrotal stimulation. Take a detour from the penis during a blowjob to lick the scrotum, tracing light circles with the tip of your tongue. Or lick with your whole tongue to provide a warm, wet sensation to a larger surface area. Taking the balls into your mouth can feel incredible—but beware of too much suction, which can cause discomfort. And remember to keep the pressure light and your teeth out of the way!

Stroke The Sack

The scrotum is structurally equivalent to the labia majora (the “outer lips” of the vulva) and is actually pretty tough. Some people enjoy the sensation of gentle tugging; you can encircle the top of the scrotum with your fingers to provide light downward pressure, equivalent to what would be experienced with a cock ring. You can also hold the skin between your fingers and your palm, and gently stretch it.

Some people find that a light, feathery touch—running the fingertips along the scrotum, using the tip of the tongue—can be unbearable tickly. Instead, cupping the balls in your palm, or using your whole hand to stroke them during a blowjob, can provide the perfect degree of sensation.

Try A Toy To Tickle The Testicles

While vibrators are often used to provide clitoral stimulation, don’t let that limit you! Sex toys are great for enhancing blowjobs too. Holding a vibrator in your palm while you cup the balls can add pleasant intensity, especially when paired with oral stimulation. You can also try gently pressing a vibrator into the perineum, just behind the balls. A vibrating cock ring can provide a gentle scrotum stretch, while the vibration stimulates the balls and penis.

If your partner is open to experimenting with a wider variety of sensation, carefully draping and dragging a chain (made with round balls, as links can snag pubic hair) over the scrotum, or with stroking with a feather, can be a great way to do so.

Pro Tips For Scrotum Pleasure

Many people have experienced trauma to this part of the body, and may be nervous about receiving touch there, even if they’re turned on by the idea. When dealing with an area as sensitive as the balls, it’s essential to move slowly enough to give your partner time to respond to the sensations they’re experiencing. Always follow your partner’s lead, and back off if they say something is uncomfortable or too intense. And remember—never twist, squeeze, or do anything that causes pain.

Next time you get intimate with your partner, be bold and use what you’ve learned to give their balls some well-deserved, loving attention!
