You might have heard the term “swirling’ when it comes to giving head, but may not know what it is or how to do it.

In this stream, sex educator Colby Marie Z demonstrates the swirling technique for blowjobs.

By using your hands during a blowjob, you can give your mouth a rest and vary sensations a bit for your partner. It can be extra pleasurable, however, if you can do the swirling technique while giving the penis attention with your mouth. Simply wrap both or one hand around the shaft and swirl them around with your mouth suckling the tip of the penis. It’s best with lots of lubrication, either saliva or lube.

While you’re swirling your hands around the shaft, your tongue can swirl around the head of the penis or caress it in a flicking motion, or just suckle it as you would a bottle.

Swirling can be a great way to enhance penis pleasure during a blowjob. It’s easy to do but may take a little practice to get the rhythm just right. It’s most important, however, to just have a bit of fun with it and to make giving head hot for you.
