All about ''ball'' sucking

Dear Alice,

I've always come to this site to either browse through others' problems and compare them to my own and because I've been sexually curious for as long as I can remember. Recently, a guy I've been friends with and I have started to "get to know each other." Last night, this question arose: How exactly do you "suck balls" and what are the benefits? I looked through everyone's questions, and I didn't see this one.

Dear Naked Mole Rat,

"Ball," or testicle, sucking can cover a number of mouth-to-scrotum activities (the scrotum being the sack of skin containing the testes). Except for the biting, chewing, and swallowing, it could be likened to eating a lollipop: a sucker might put her/his mouth around one or both of a partner's balls, licking, tugging, and even nibbling in a way that's pleasurable to all involved. Because the genitalia are full of sensitive nerves and tissue, testicle tasting and other oral sex entrees need to be done with care and clear communication.

Sucking and tongue action can be combined with hot breaths, as well as blowing cool streams of air, which can provide additional sensation and drying. Alternating from one ball to the other can also suffice as some men may feel more sensation in one testicle versus the other. It's also common for one testicle to hang down further than the other, so this, too, might dictate which side gets sucked. And because temperature affects how high or low the "fruit" will hang, testicle-sucking sessions may vary in look and feel.

Shifting the focus for a minute to the sucker, s/he might have a one or two ball preference. This could be determined by the pleasure, or lack thereof, felt from a "full mouth," and/or the need for more breathing room. As with other sexual play involving the mouth, stray pubic hair can also be on the menu; for those who find this natural occurrence distasteful, a quick rinse and spit with water should do the trick. Some men and women shave some or all of their pubic hair to prevent hair loss during sex, among other things.

Although having a lollipop may never be the same again, practicing ball-sucking on one — whether or not you ever decide to try the real thing — can also help to answer your questions. NOTE: four out of five dentists would probably disagree with this advice.

My partner was sceptical about having balls licked. I kept asking & he let me pleasure him. We LOVE it now & part of our regular routine. Yes shaved it better!

Dear Naked Mole Rat,

It's simply one of those things. If you want to try it, go for it! Don't be embarrassed, though... you have to learn some time. Just go slow, lick, suck A LITTLE, and cradle them in your hand while sucking on his penis. If he seems to not make a lot of sound when you lick, try to suck, and vice versa. If he really wants it done, he'll help you along, hun.
