How To Give A Good Hand Job

The beloved hand job gets overlooked far too often. Yes, your partner might be able to do it better themselves but that’s not to say they aren’t receiving a seriously pleasurable time from you having a go. Incorporating hand jobs into your sex life is a great way to move away from penetrative and goal orientated sex, and giving an amazing hand job is one way to ensure their eternal gratefulness. 

You may know how to give a hand job already but unless your partner’s been openly communicating with you on how to make it great, there’s always room for improvement! Explore these tried and tested hand job techniques to take your hand job from good to great. 

Every body is unique and what works for one person might not be as good for another. To achieve the best hand job for your partner, listen to your partner’s body (and guidance) and find out what works best for them. However, at least some of these techniques will hit your partner’s sweet spot. 

1. Watching your partner masturbate

Your partner probably knows what they like by now, so learn from the master by watching how they masturbate. Try mutually masturbating which is a great way to give yourself some self-love and provide a learning tool for both of you as you discover which spots ramp up the pleasure dial on your partner.

2. Ask your partner what they like

This might seem like an obvious one, but communication is key. Talk to your partner about what they like and what they don’t. Improve your technique as they tell you what feels good.

3. Set the mood

Mindset is equally as important as the act itself, set the mood for some sensuality. Make your bedroom feel sexy, relax and stimulate your senses. If you usually feel a little awkward about hand action then this can help you get out of your head and be in the moment. 

4. Lube, lube and more lube

The key to all good sex, and a good sex life generally. Lube intensifies each delicious sensation and reduces friction for silky sensations. If lubrication isn’t a part of your sexual routine, make it part of it ASAP. Learn what lubes work for you, whether water-based, oil-based or silicone lube - all have their advantages in sexual enhancement.

5. An alternative lube

Using lubrication is important but this doesn’t necessarily need to be lube from a tube or jar. Use your spit and watch them go wild with this power move. You could even gently tease them with a lick or suck to increase the sexual tension and have them squirming for more.

6. Hold steady

Firmly hold the penis, avoiding a limp wrist so the penis doesn’t flop around but not too tight that you’re strangling the penis, and apply some extra pressure. Another handy tip is to use the palm of your hand against the shaft increasing the pressure points against the penis whilst being fluid with your movement.

7. Two hand job

Two hands give you the strength and speed you need to keep yourself going. Wrapping well-lubed hands over the penis increases the touch points and helps you really stroke the penis for 360-degree stimulation. This can also help relieve the stress of using both hands, helping you go for longer and helping give the stimulation they need to reach climax.

8. Lightly twist 

This isn’t the kind of twist you do when trying to open a jar, no sudden movements but gently twisting your hands in a caressing movement can feel excellent to the penis owner. 

9. Play with the testicles

Testicles are ridiculously sensitive - if you have ever seen someone get hit in the balls and clutch themselves to the floor you will know this. This isn’t to say the balls are off-limits but you do need to be careful with them, ensuring you and your partner have a discussion beforehand about the best way to enjoy testicle play. Gradually build sensation and back off if your partner looks uncomfortable or has communicated they don’t enjoy testicle play. 

Testicle stimulation also has its health benefits promoting ejaculatory production by increasing blood circulation. A gentle touch, squeeze, or stroke with the right amount of pressure can be a rewarding sexual experience and is one factor that can make a good hand job. 

10. Find your rhythm

Consistent rhythm is a must for a good hand job, speed up and slow down as you wish but keep it consistent as to not jerk them around too much. This can also help them reach orgasm by building up speed but keeping the same rhythm. 

11. Respond to body language

Read their body language. If they are moaning, then they probably want you to keep going, however, if they are looking less than satisfied then ease off what you are doing. 

12. Talk dirty to them

As you are touching your partner, dirty talk to them. This can add to the overall sexual experience but also is a great way to communicate what you are doing, letting them know exactly where you are going to touch and do as a means of understanding what they want. 

13. Focus on the tip

The head of the penis is full of nerve endings that are very sensitive. When you can see him reaching toward climax, focus your efforts on the tip, but be careful as sensitivity differs in everyone. What an old partner might find amazing could be too much for who you are with now. 

14. Find your positioning

This one is all about you, get yourself in a comfortable position as a hand job can take a while. If you aren’t comfortable you might start flailing and chances are your partner gets off on you getting off. If they see you aren’t having a good time it might be difficult for them to enjoy themselves.

15. Eye contact

Maintaining eye contact can help intensify the sexual connection and heighten the effect. Obviously looking them in the eye with boredom oozing out is not the best way to get them in the mood, but being into it and enjoying their pleasure can add an extra dimension to the hand job. 

16. Kiss them whilst playing with them

Kissing your partner passionately whilst playing with them adds another dimension. Building intensity by engaging more senses and showing them how much you are enjoying giving them a good hand job.

17. Show your enjoyment and enthusiasm

Utilize your body language. Show them just how much you are enjoying this, perhaps try some moaning or dry humping whilst you play with them. 

18. Add vibrations

A vibrating cock ring is a great way to get them hard and feeling all kinds of sensations they aren’t used to. With Tenuto, you have stimulation from all angles that just adds to the eroticism. You can even control it via your phone to find the perfect vibe to match your hand job and ensure the pleasure experience is enhanced.

19. Mouth action

Feel free to incorporate a little mouth action into the hand job but oral sex doesn’t need to be part of this show to make this foreplay mind-blowing. However, if you feel like it turn this hand job into some oral play… who knows where it will lead.

20. Edging

Edging and orgasm denial are the acts of allowing someone to experience a high level of sexual arousal and pleasure for a long time without allowing orgasm. Mix things up by adding this kinky sex act into your hand job repertoire, bring them to the edge of climax, and at the last moment stop. Wait a few seconds and bring them back again. This is sexually frustrating for them but can result in an explosive orgasm when you eventually push them over the edge. 

21. Explore other areas

There are plenty of hot spots your partner might enjoy being stimulated whilst you are giving them a hand job, try stroking the inside of your partner’s thighs or massaging the perineum. Remember that everyone has different likes and dislikes, don’t try to dive into the perineum without some discussion beforehand.
