Interested In Some Wax Play? Here Are Some Tips for Beginners
When you lose that spark in your bedroom, and the embers of passion have dulled massively, among the best ways to heat things up is incorporating some temperature play, specifically wax play candles. Wax play candles are hot (literally!), sticky, and potentially very fun.
However, remember, with great power comes great responsibility. Wax play comes with significant risks, especially those of unsexy burns. It can be very intimidating, but youâ€™re in luck today. Keep scrolling through this simple and exciting beginner's guide to wax play.
First, What Is Wax Play?
The concept of wax play is based on BDSM, or, simply put, pleasurable pain. Itâ€™s a form of consensual BDSM act that involves temperature play, where one pours hot wax on themselves or a partnerâ€™s body when getting intimate. The hot wax sends a slight burning and pleasurable sensation to the recipient when it hits the skin. The partner applying the wax enjoys a sense of domination and power over their partner.
Is Wax Play Safe?
As mentioned earlier, there are safety concerns related to burns from the hot wax. Wax play is considered risk-aware and consensual play since there is a risk of suffering from unsexy burns. However, there is nothing to worry about with a few safety precautions and the right kind of candles.
The most important thing to remember is to keep the hot wax off eyes, ears and other sensitive body parts.
Does It Hurt?
Generally, no, but that depends on the partner in question. Remember, we have different limits to pain and sensation. Some people have very sensitive skin and have a thin tolerance to pain, and thus, they might find it painful.
Many people wouldnâ€™t say it hurts but instead call the feeling an intense sensation rather than pain.
What Type of Candles Are Best for Wax Play?
We recommend using candles specifically made for wax play to avoid unsexy burns. Such candles are labelled as body-safe and are, in most cases, sold by adult toys retailers. Such candles only reach a specific temperature, and thus, the wax shouldnâ€™t be much on the skin.
Doctors and experts recommend paraffin candles. If possible, avoid scented and beeswax candles as they get hotter and will undoubtedly leave unsexy burns on your skin.
Prepping For Wax Play.
Preparing for a wax play session goes a long way in safety compliance and ensuring everyone has a good time.
Firstly, we recommend using bed sheets youâ€™re not super attached to since it's impossible not to drip some wax on the bed. Remove flammable substances around the bedroom, and tie loose or tangled body hair.
Cleaning Up After a Session.
The truth is wax play can be messy. It will leave your body with lumps of solid wax. Depending on the type of candle, you should be able to pull them off easily. Some people will enjoy the impact play from pulling the wax. In most cases, baby oil or a hot shower will be perfect.
The Bottom Line
Wax play is among the hottest yet less talked about sex plays. It's powerful and will work the magic on your bedroom spark. We hope that the above tips will be helpful. Remember always to communicate, play safe, and, quite significantly, aftercare.
