How to Play With Testicles


1. What do you like to call your testicles?

In our testicle survey, the overwhelming majority of you – unsurprisingly – said balls. Some were lucky enough to have multiple names for theirs.

“My wife calls them “balls”, but my girlfriend calls them the “boys”.”

Yet – even to the dismay of this anonymous respondent, “sorry, but I’m not 3. I just call them testicles or balls” – there were in fact plenty of people who have some pretty imaginative names for them.

For you fortunate fondlers, here’s a few of our favourites:

The sack of destiny; death stars 1 and 2; the family jewels; gonads; bollocks; cojones; Tom (Dick) and Harry; the twins; sugar lumps; plums; (meat &) two veg; eggs; nuts.

I don’t know about you, but the last few are definitely tempting our appetite. And now for the sexiest bit about the balls…


Itchy testicles at night

In adolescent boys, young and old adults, itchy testicles can be experienced at night and during the day. During the day, the itch can be both annoying and embarrassing whereas, at night, it can be so severe that it disrupts your sleep.

At night, itchy testicles can result from:

  • excess sweating which creates an optimal bacterial breeding ground
  • poor genital hygiene
  • shaving, waxing and other hair removal methods
  • physical contact with chemical irritants and harsh soaps
  • an underlying medical condition such as diabetes and
  • possible skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis among others

Applying topical ointments such as coconut oil, tea tree oil, Aloe Vera, or apple cider vinegar can help ease, and relieve itchy testicles at night. Keeping you groins clean and dry can also help relieve the itch.

If the itching persists or you are unsure of what the underlying cause of the itch might be, we recommend you see your dermatologist as soon as possible. This will help prevent the spread of the itch to other parts of your groins.

Scabies is also a possible cause of intense testicular itching at night. When the cause of the itching is scabies, it can be shown by thin, irregular burrow tracks made up of tiny blisters or itchy bumps on your scrotal skin.

The Scrotum Is Where It’s At

While the entire testicular region—testes, tubes, and sack—is colloquially referred to as “the balls,” sex play is generally confined to the scrotum, the pouch of skin and muscle encasing the testicles. Think of the scrotum as a stretchy, resilient sock holding precious, fragile eggs. It can be tugged, stretched, even gently nibbled—as long as its contents are never squeezed or otherwise roughly handled.

What If He Likes It Rough?

So far I’ve emphasized gentle testicle stimulation and open communication without surprises (which you can employ when you play with gentle femdom). However, some guys like it when you’re more intense. In fact, some men prefer really rough treatment of their balls. They want more than a testicle massage; they want torture.


Yes, you read that right.

Some people are into what’s known as cock and ball torture or CBT – not to be confused with the cognitive behavioral therapy.

CBT can involve a number of acts:

  • Spanking or hitting the cock and balls
  • Pulling
  • Cutting
  • Stepping on his genitals
  • Locking the genitals in a cage
  • Stretching
  • Urethral sounding
  • Electrostimulation
  • Waxing
  • Clamps
  • Pinching
  • Whipping
  • Mummification
  • Ball busting

Now, these things might sound pretty extreme. You don’t have to try any of them, and you certainly don’t have to try all of them just because one of them sounds fine. Figure out what works for you and your man, and then learn how to do it safely.

The resource section includes a few suggestions if you want to learn more about cock and ball torture.

Remember that if you get kinky or rough, it’s important to incorporate aftercare. More about that here.

Psst, some people don’t love it rough. For them, some of the ideas above might be the perfect way to ruin an orgasm.


  • Enhances male potency by activating the production of healthy sperm.
  • Increases testosterone levels.
  • Hardens your erections.
  • Boosts your sexual energy and masculine power.
  • Relieves pressure after lovemaking.
  • Reduces testicular inflammation and stagnation.

Itchy testicles no rash

For most men, an itchy testicle will often time be accompanied by a rash.  A skin rash can be described as a change in the color, appearance, or texture of the skin. A skin rash can be localized (meaning affect one part of the body) or affect all the skin.

With an itchy rash, your scrotal skin may change in color, feel warm, bumpy, and dry, chapped, cracked or develop very painful blisters.  In other instances, the skin may swell and become very painful to touch.

Yeast infection is often the most common cause of an itchy scrotum with no rash. Other possible causes of an itchy skin with no rash will include:

  • allergic reaction though not all of the time
  • eczema also called contact dermatitis
  • jock itch

8. Are “blue balls” a myth?

After long periods of heightened sexual arousal, and if there is no ejaculation, the blood that flows to the penis causes a lot of pressure and pain in the testicles and they may show a tinge of blue. However, “blue balls” have not been scientifically proven to cause permanent damage.

Edging (orgasm control) can be a fun method of play, but do make sure the build up isn’t causing any discomfort to the balls.

4. Use your vibrator

Vibrators aren’t just for solo sex. They definitely have a place in bed with your partner, too. If you’re using it to get yourself off – and you’re both ok with this – offer to share. He doesn’t have to use it the same way or for as long as you do, but even gentle vibrations for a short period of time can be really pleasurable for him. Vibrators can be used against the shaft of the penis and the balls. Depending on how sensitive he is – or how strong your vibrator is – he might only need a couple of minutes, but those two minutes might be mind-blowing.

Most popular and pleasant techniques to play with his balls

There are plenty of techniques in this world on a balls pleasure topic. It all depends on the personal preferences of a guy. But here are seven most common ways to please his balls and him.

How to play with testicles or what are testicle play techniques

Sensually pinch the seam

The seam is the skin between two balls (the on in the middle basically). Try to do it slowly at first and then you can evolve with the strength and the distance.

Drag them down

Imagine trying to get rid of the extra water or something. Place your fingers around the base of his balls and glide your fingers down, making his testicles slip away in the end. Repeat that, and you can go further with stretching them down a little bit more each time.

Take both testicles in your hand and play with your fingers around it and then gently pull them down.

Draw infinity sign with your tongue around his balls

That will draw his attention to you. That also could be a nice “break” if you need to take a minute in between giving him head.

Suck of his balls

Start with sucking one by one and then, if you are ready, put both of them together. Be careful of your teeth and try to control it not to cause the pain. While balls are in your mouth, you can switch from sucking to licking and then back to sucking. It is like a blowjob: your fantasy is the key here.

Slap it

If you guy is into more rough things, you should try slap balls. It is not that common because a lot of guys have never tried that before so you can try with a little slap somewhere in between you playing.

Try tea bagging

It’s like him fucking your mouth but putting his balls in your mouth while you are intensely licking them. The best position for that is when you are laying on your back, and he is standing above you and placing both balls into your mouth. In and out. He can stroke, and you can grab his butt cheeks or play with your clit.

Any techniques are greatYou can choose one of those or take them all and use them one by one. You can also have “balls” sessions with your guy when you don’t do anything to him but lick his balls. He can stroke himself and hold your head tight, but you focus on the licking only.

2. Put your mouth on them

Let’s assume you’re giving a blowjob. Remember, the balls deserve some tongue action too. Start nice and gentle, and always watch the teeth. Most people don’t like pain anywhere near their groin, although some do enjoy a little roughness. Once you’re comfortable, especially if you find that having testicles in your mouth is a turn on, gently suck one ball into your mouth. If you can, suck in the second one. (No, this doesn’t just happen in porn!) The suction combined with a soft, swirling tongue on his scrotum should send him over the edge in the best way possible.

Testicle Massage Benefits

Testicle massage is not only incredibly pleasurable, but it also offers some vital health benefits that you or your partner won’t want to pass on. Below, we’ll discuss the very important testicle massage benefits:

Blood circulation

A very important part of sperm creation is the proper circulation of blood in the scrotum. There’s no way the testicles produce sperm as they should if blood doesn’t circulate properly. When you play with the testicles, you can trust blood circulation to improve in the impacted region, thus keeping the testicles healthy.

Healthier sperm

For the umpteenth time, the testicles produce sperm, and stimulating them can boost production as well as improve the quality. Specifically, testicle massage improves blood circulation and consequently, sperm quality. So, you can count on having healthier sperm if your balls are massaged regularly.

Essentially, you can use testicle massage for fertility if you’re struggling with infertility.

Reduces risks of inflammation

Without any doubt, inflammation can be a pain in the ass. From pain to swelling and other unpalatable symptoms, no one likes dealing with inflammation. Thankfully, regular testicle massage does well to reduce the risks of inflammation. When the massage ensures proper blood circulation, inflammation is inadvertently pushed to the back row.

Stronger erections

Remember when we mentioned that testicles are the

Remember when we mentioned that testicles are the glands responsible for producing testosterone? When these glands are massaged, the sex hormone inadvertently swings into action and triggers a stronger erection. So, if you want your penis or that of your partner to have a stronger erection, testicle massage just before sex can be a magic wand.

Testosterone increase

As we hinted just above, testicle massage does a good job of boosting testosterone production. If you or your partner is not aroused enough for sex, massaging the balls can go a long way in boosting the sex hormone for some action. Plus, the increase in testosterone can increase muscle mass, bone density, and improve brain function.

Therefore, we advise that you practice testicle massage to increase testosterone and maintain an exciting sex life.

Pain relief

If there’s pain around the scrotum, a testicle massage can help to relieve it. With gentle rubbing, the pain can be relieved to a reasonable extent. Now, you know that testicle massage for pain relief is a thing and should be taken seriously.

Besides relieving pain, testicle massage can help identify any irregularity such as swelling or lumps to prevent possible pain. That’s something if you consider the fact that around 6 in every 100,000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer Trusted Source Cancer Stat Facts: Testicular Cancer New cases come from SEER 13. Deaths come from U.S. Mortality. in their lifetime. Whether it’s the regular testicle massage or the Japanese testicle massage, you can always trust you’re doing yourself a favor.

Update How To Increase Testicle Size Part 2:

We’ve updated this article with new info probiotics, along with additional information on sleep, alcohol consumption and the negative impact soy foods have on testicle function.

Let’s go…

Supplement with Lactobacillus Reuteri

If you think the two words above refer to a rare dinosaur, chances are you’re unfamiliar with the amazing power of probiotics.

If you need a refresher course, each of our bodies boasts what we call a “microbiome,” which is made up of billions upon billions of bacteria. 

Most of these “good bacteria” are located in our gut, where they help us digest food. However, you can find these helpful little microorganisms in nearly every system and organ of our bodies. 

One particular potent strain of bacteria is known as Lactobacillus Reuteri, and you can find it in soft cheeses, natural yogurts, and buttermilk. 

Aside from keeping your gut happy, studies show that supplementing with LR can significantly improve semen volume. Indeed, one study took men deemed “infertile” and gave them LR supplements for 10 weeks. 

After that period, nearly half of them demonstrated dramatically increased loads. 

But that’s not all.

Other studies show that L. Reuteri bacteria can actually increase the size of your testicles (source). 

Though research has been limited to mice at this point, it indicates that probiotic microbes can sustain youthful testosterone levels for longer periods of time, keeping your “baby factory” full, heathy, and operating at maximum capacity.
