The penis is a highly sensitive erogenous zone with a total of 4,000 nerve endings, most located at the tip. Whether you’re interested in solo or partnered playtime, we’re bringing you some fun and creative ways to pleasure a penis.
Level up with an arousal oil.
Our Bloomi Arousal Oil ($58.00) is formulated with botanical aphrodisiacs to help increase sexual arousal and make sex feel really good. Though its ingredients are specifically designed to enhance pleasure for vulvas, it is completely safe and just as enjoyable for people with penises. For best results, apply 2 to 4 pumps, or your desired amount, to your fingertips and gently massage on penile skin, testicles, inner thighs and surrounding area.
Get wet, wet, wet.
There’s no such thing as too much lube. Actually, the more slip, the better! Start with a water-based lubricant like Coconu’s Water-Based Personal Lubricant ($24.99). It uses organic coconut water to create a formula that is long-lasting, silky and sensuous. If you’re looking for something with flavor, Almost Naked Organic Personal Lubricant ($11.99) is also a water-based lubricant designed for sensitive skin; it’s infused with aloe vera that has a light, organic lemon and vanilla flavor.
Mix things up with some vibration.
Toys are meant to enhance sexual experiences. Play with different vibration patterns and intensities on your partner’s inner thigh or forearm before you go straight for the penis. Dame’s Kip ($75.00) and Fin ($74.95) or LELO’s Tor 2 ($139.00) are all great options to stimulate the penis. They each have a flat, sleek design that’s easy to control and stimulate different pleasure points, like the head, frenulum, scrotum and testicles.
Give a “full-body” massage.
For this massage, grab our fave Bloomi Massage Oil ($64.00) with botanical aphrodisiacs and CBD. Apply a generous amount of oil on your forearms and the penis. You can do this while sitting on your partner or beside them. Then, place your arms on either side of the penis while the person receiving is laying on their back. Using your forearms, apply a bit of pressure as you move up and down along the sides of the shaft. Pro-tip: Lean forward and give it kisses or licks throughout.
The Gearstick: Rest your hand on the head of the penis, just as you would on the gearstick of a car. Apply your favorite lubricant, and start making circular movements with the palm of your hand. Pro-tip: You can simultaneously use your other hand to gently squeeze the shaft and move in up-and-down motions.
What the frenulum?: The frenulum is the small “V” fold of skin on the underside of the penis between the foreskin and the shaft. It’s also an erogenous zone that likes attention and gentle stimulation. Tease this area with kisses, licks or flicks for as long as possible before you move onto other areas of the penis. They’ll be begging you for more. Trust!
It’s all in the head: As mentioned, the head of the penis contains thousands of nerve endings. You don’t want to neglect this area. Use your thumb and index finger to gently stimulate the tip while the palm of your hand lightly caresses the shaft. Play with different movements and, of course, check in with your partner(s) to make sure they’re feeling good.
Use your mouth.
Oral sex is one of the most intimate activities you can engage in with your partner(s) because it grips all your senses. When performing oral sex on a penis, focus your attention on the head, frenulum and foreskin (if still in tact). Of course, every penis is different and enjoys different sensations, so be sure to check in with the receiver. As far as techniques go, saliva and lube will be your best friends. Once the penis is well lubricated, run your lips and tongue up and down along the shaft. As you move toward the head of the penis, move your tongue in circular motions clockwise and counter-clockwise. Pro-tip: If you’re stimulating someone whose penis is bigger than what will comfortably fit in your mouth, lubricate the palms of your hands and wrap them around the shaft. This allows you to control the depth of penile insertion while not causing discomfort.
Add a c-ring.
Changing things up adds novelty to every sexual experience. C-rings are a fun option because they can add extra sensations, feel-good pressure and even make an erection firmer. Simply place the ring gently at the base of the penis and have fun with any of the activities you’d usually do. If you want to play with different sizes, try Wednesday Co.’s Le Cirque Three Piece C-ring Set ($24).
Butt play is fun, too.
Anal stimulation can enhance orgasms and overall pleasure for penis-owners. Whether with fingers, an anal plug or dildo, exploring different sensations solo or with a partner(s) will unlock stronger, more intense orgasms. If this is something you’d like to try, we recommend Fun Factory’s Bootie Anal Plug and Prostate Massager ($34.99), Bootie Anal Plug and C-Ring ($44.99) or B Ball Uno Anal Weighted Plug ($34.99).
