18 Tips For Giving Better Head

Teeth: no. Spit: yes.

Posted on

1. Teeth are bad, obviously.

You're going for pleasure, not pain and injuries. Avoid accidentally recreating a scene from Interview with the Vampire while you're giving head.

2. Get comfortable.

It can be difficult to plan these things in advance, but you don't want to find yourself in the middle of everything stuck in an uncomfortable position (like all your weight resting on your pinkies, for instance). Before you get too far along, settle into a position that makes both of you comfortable.

3. Don't forget to hydrate.

Listen, it's gonna be a lot more enjoyable for both of you if you're properly hydrated. If you need to, don't hesitate to take a few seconds to grab a sip of water. It'll be worth it in the long run.

4. Because you can't go wrong with a lot of saliva.

When it comes to blowjobs, you really can't have too much saliva. Go wild.

5. Know your own strength.

Penises, especially the uncircumcised ones, can be pretty sensitive. Don't treat it like it's made out of indestructible rubber. Go easy on it, especially at the start.

6. If you use your hands, pace yourself.

Start things off slowly and increase speed little by little. Don't hit the gas pedal right at the start of things.

7. In fact, using your hands and mouth together often leads to better results.

Not only will it prevent you from getting tired, but it will also give you more freedom to move around and use different techniques.

8. Don't forget eye contact.

It definitely helps with communication, and to be honest, it's a real turn on for a lot of people.

9. Don't stop at the tip.

Sure, it feels great for a while, but if you can manage to go a bit further, even if it's just a few times, it usually has a powerful effect.

10. Really explore that thing.

The tip, the base, the middle, the sides... explore every surface of that penis. Each one comes with a different sensation, and for some people, certain areas are much more sensitive than others.

11. And don't neglect the rest of their body. To quote the 20th century philosopher John Mayer...

Don't focus just on the penis, caress here, kiss there... let your hands explore. There are a lot of places on the body that can give people pleasure.

12. Especially the testicles. Don't forget those little guys.

Though, probably best to avoid this particular motion.

13. Don't be afraid to go back even further, if they're into into.

Always discuss it beforehand, but it's no secret that men can get a lot of pleasure from... back there. A curious finger can go far.

14. Pay a lot of attention to body language.

Body language doesn't lie. If you're doing something right (or something wrong, for that matter), they'll react. Use those signs to better understand your partner and to decide which path to take and which path to avoid.

15. And if you can't read the signals, don't be afraid to just ask.

It goes both ways. If you're not into something, you should always feel free to speak up.

16. Take control.

Although it may not seem like it, you have more control over the situation than the recipient. Keep your own pace, choose the technique you like best, and set the tone for the entire... performance.

17. Make it fun for you too.

Don't do it just to please someone else. Try to find parts of the experience that you enjoy as well.

18. At the end of the day, the most important thing is consent.

If you're not into it, if you're not in the mood right then, or if you want to stop for some reason, it's always okay to just say no.
