How to Give a Great Blow Job

Whether you’re considering giving a blow job for the first time or are simply looking to perfect your blow job skills, the right blow job technique will keep the experience enjoyable for you and your partner.

A blow job, or fellatio, is an oral sex act that involves stimulating your partner’s penis with your mouth. Despite its name, a blow job doesn’t actually involve blowing on the penis; rather, you perform a blow job by licking and sucking the penis. You can give a blowjob as foreplay before penetrative sex or as the main event of a sexual experience.

9 Tips for Giving a Great Blow Job

Consider these oral sex tips when giving your partner a blow job.

  1. Keep it safe. It’s possible to contract STIs from giving or receiving a blowjob. Before giving a blowjob, speak with your partner about their sexual health history, and consider using a flavoured condom for protection.
  2. Use your lips to shield your teeth. If your teeth touch your partner’s penis, the sensation for them will likely be unpleasant. Wrap your lips over your teeth as a cushion as you go down on your partner.
  3. Use your hands. For the best blow job, mix in some hand job work. Place your dominant hand around your partner’s shaft, then simultaneously move your hand and mouth up and down the penis. To enhance this motion, twist your wrist back and forth as you move up and down. Make sure to use lube to prevent painful friction. Once you have the motion down, use your other hand to gently massage your partner’s testicles.
  4. Have an ejaculation plan. If you intend to bring your partner to orgasm, plan ahead so you’re both prepared for ejaculation. If you prefer that your partner doesn’t ejaculate in your mouth, let them know beforehand. That way, your partner can give you a verbal warning right before they orgasm, and you can switch to hand job-only mode as they climax. If you are okay with your partner climaxing in your mouth, decide whether you would rather spit or swallow. If you do choose to swallow, know that semen is perfectly safe to ingest.
  5. Show enthusiasm. To give a good blow job, first express to your partner that you want to give them head. Try showing your enthusiasm through a little dirty talk. You can also ask your partner, “Do you like how this feels?” to show that you’re invested in their pleasure and open to feedback. As you go down on your partner, look up every so often to make eye contact and indicate that you’re enjoying yourself. If you’re not into giving blow jobs, be honest about that with your partner, and never feel pressured to do something you dislike. Only engage in sexual acts that you’re comfortable with; if that doesn’t include blow jobs, try exploring alternate ways to please your partner.
  6. Use your tongue to stimulate the penis head. During most of the blow job, you’ll want to apply soft pressure with your tongue against the penis as you move your mouth up and down the shaft. For a pleasurable change of pace, try focusing your tongue attention on the head of the penis and the frenulum, the sensitive band of skin on the underside of the penis head. Grip the lower shaft with your hand, and use the tip of your tongue to lightly lick the top of the penis head in a slow circular motion.
  7. Practice before trying to deep throat. Deep throating—the act of putting your partner’s penis far enough into your mouth that it reaches your throat—is a turn-on for some blow job recipients, but you should only go as deep as is comfortable for you. If you want to attempt deep throating, first train your gag reflex by practising without a partner. Start by slowly moving a toothbrush toward the back of your throat, and try to hold it there for 10 seconds. When you gag, relax, and overcome your gag reflex by taking deep breaths. Once you make it 10 seconds without gagging, move to a larger object like a dildo. Repeat the same process you’re comfortable moving the dildo back and forth in your mouth.
  8. Stimulate your partner’s other erogenous zones. The key to a great blow job is to make it a full-body experience. While your mouth pleasures the penis, simultaneously stimulate other erogenous zones on your partner’s body. Try massaging their balls, licking their inner thighs, stroking their perineum, or engaging in some anal play.
  9. Add a sex toy to the mix. Try enhancing your blow jobs with a vibrator; simply press it against your cheek or chin so the vibration passes indirectly to your partner’s penis.
