Hot wax is a very accessible and easy way to bring kinkier sex into your daily life, without feeling like you’re going over the top. It is well known that adding in more sensations, whether that be through sight smell or sound, can be very beneficial in the sack.
Wax play uses the hot temperature to stimulate your nerves, while also being relaxing and sensual, so it can be a great place to start if you’re looking to bring more excitement in the bedroom. After all, 50% of American’s want to try BDSM in some form or another, so might as well start somewhere!
The first thing to know when starting wax play is that you can’t just use any old candle from your kitchen cupboards. It is important to make sure that you’re using safe and meant-for-sex candles when initiating wax play, especially when first starting out.
If you don’t use the correct candles, it can result in second degree burns, scarring, or even a trip to the hospital. That will definitely ruin your sexy time!
When using a candle, you also need to account for wait time. After first lighting the candle, it is best to wait thirty minutes before using it, as this will make sure that the candle’s wax burns easily through and does not all sit on one side, which will make it harder to use the next time.
Soy candles are the best way to go, and in fact most massage candles for wax play are made of soy. Soy is one of the best materials because once you blow it out it takes about 30 minutes for the candle to harden again, which means that you have plenty of time to use it before you would need to light it again.
Make sure that you remember to never put the wax inside you or your partner, as this can cause serious infections and even burns on more sensitive areas. The massage candles can be best used in areas such as the neck and shoulders, where rubbing the wax in might feel good to you or your partner.
Another idea is to use the soy candles for a foot massage, as soy is known to smoothen skin and help with relaxation. It’s a great way to start or end sex with your partner!
After you’re finished with the wax play, you might be wondering how to get the wax off. Usually, the massage candles are made from materials that will easily blend into your skin, so massaging them in usually gets rid of the wax. You can also wait for a few minutes until it soaks in, as it is safe to use and really beneficial for moisturizing.
If you’re worried about getting your sheets dirty, you can hop in the shower and do a quick rinse with some body soap before continuing with your partner. This can also be a great way to continue foreplay!
So what are you waiting for? Get that candle lit and get started!
