Some sex games are about spicing things up in more traditional ways. For example, role playing and dressing up in costumes may come to mind (i.e., doctor/nurse, warden/prisoner, teacher/student). Other times, people find playful ways to enjoy sex together and these playful moments could be considered a form of sex play or a sex game.
Case in point: Testicular Play.
You may have heard about teabagging (which involves someone taking their partner’s testicles into their mouth during oral sex play) and other ways to play with a man’s testicles, such as licking them or sucking them to enhance his pleasure or arousal.
But what about other types of testicular play?
A cool thing about men’s testicles is that they have a built-in protective aspect to them. Because warm temperatures are not ideal for sperm production, the testicles actually hang outside of a man’s body in his scrotum to protect them from typical warm body temperatures.
If you and a partner are sitting around naked and playing with each other (such as before or after sex), try blowing your warm breath onto a man’s scrotum and watching as it shrivels up and away from the warm temperature. The skin wrinkles in what some might find to be interesting ways, and it can give you a better sense of how men’s testicles respond to warmth. If his testicles stop responding, you might blow several breaths of cool air (to get it used to cool temperatures again) and then exhale warm breath on the scrotum again, watching as the testicles move away from the warmth again and then return moments later. Some couples do similar things by drinking hot tea and then licking the scrotum with one’s warm tongue, but the effect may be less easily seen then as the testicles tend to withdraw rather quickly after being exposed to warmth. [Note: you should NEVER use anything hot on a person's genitals. Warm, natural breath is generally safe; hot things are not. Ask your healthcare provider if you have any questions about safety issues related to sex play or intercourse.]
This type of sex play may help you to learn more about or appreciate a man’s body and have a little fun with sex. If you’re a guy reading this, try talking with your partner about this and seeing what she or he thinks. It can be fun to get this close and personal with each other’s naked body in a way that’s not about pressure or performance, but is instead about exploration and learning.
