Playing with balls: A guide to testicle massage

Have you heard of a testicle massage before? No, it’s not when you play with a man’s balls during oral sex. We're talking about a real testicle massage. It’s okay if this is new to you, life is about learning!

We previously looked at perineum massages but this one is strictly for people with balls. In this guide, you’re going to learn everything you need to know about giving a testicle massage.

What is a testicle massage?

The good thing about massaging balls is that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist. It’s pretty much in the name. The testicle massage originated from an ancient Taoist practice designed to give stronger erections and recovery after sex. It helps with alleviating pressure and discomfort in the testicular area.

What are the benefits of a testicle massage?

A testicle massage isn’t only for pleasure. There are more benefits from receiving a testicle massage than you may think. Some of the benefits are:

  • Helps to create healthier sperm
  • Aids with penis enlargement exercises
  • Helps give stronger erections
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Learn about your body and erogenous zones
  • Aids in ball stretching exercises
  • Improves communication with your partner

Aside from pleasure, you can see there are many benefits ranging from better blood circulation to assisting in ball stretching exercises to healthier sperm. But knowing the benefits of a testicle massage is only half of it. Now it’s time to learn how to give a testicle massage.

Step-by-Step Testicle Massage

Warm-up the area

For this massage to really be effective, you need to get the blood flowing. For this, the man should do one of the following:

  • Take a hot shower
  • Sitting in a sauna for under 10 minutes
  • Soak the testicle in a bowl of warm water

Once the testicles are warmed up, they’re ready for a testicle massage.

  1. Use a natural massage oil to massage the area. Rub the oil or lubricant all over the balls and surrounding areas.

  2. For a couple of minutes, gently massage the areas around the scrotum.

  3. Slowly massage closer to the scrotum, using your thumb and index finger.

  4. Start massaging the area in between the testicles, using a soft squeeze (remember, the area is sensitive). Try different massage motions to find the right one.
  5. Massage the base of the scrotum, pulling down occasionally while massaging at the same time. Keep this up for a couple of minutes.

  6. You can repeat the massage 4 to 6 times and increase the time if your partner is enjoying it.

  7. When finished massaging one testicle, gently put it down and then repeat the instructions above again on the other.

Other techniques to add:

Ball tapping

You can also do ball tapping, which is where you hold the penis up, away from the testicles, and use your middle and index finger to gently tap on the testicles for a couple of minutes.

Ball tapping should be lightly done. If it’s done too hard it can inflict harm and pain onto the testicles. Some men prefer to have one testicle in the palm of your hand while you tap the other as it helps create a barrier.

Ball stretching

Some men enjoy ball stretching for stimulation, BDSM play, or aesthetic purposes. If your partner enjoys ball stretching, they most likely have a ball stretcher they wear.

A testicle massage is a great way to receive pleasure and also keep your testicles young and healthy. Try out this technique with your partner and see how it goes (just make sure you have their consent!).
