Sensation play is an act of conveying feelings to the body, thereby causing pleasure. In fact, sensation play is so ubiquitous in sex that every one of us may have experienced sensation play in sex.

Think of the gentle touch on your body from your partner during sex, the moment his wet tongue ran crosses your nipples, have you ever been sexually aroused by those actions?  Did your legs burn with desire?

The purpose of sensation play is to enhance the pleasurable sensation of all senses during sex, so sensation play includes impact (spanking or hitting with tools), wax play, pain, temperature, restraint, smell, figging sight and electroplay.

The following are the 6 most common sensation play and how to do it safely.

1. Wax play

Wax play is a kind of temperature play. Wax play is to drip hot wax onto bare skin to entice excitement and sexual arousal. The candles on the market that are suitable for wax play are generally low temperature candles at 127.4 degrees Fahrenheit, there will only be a slight burning feeling, under the premise of correct use, low temperature candles will not burn the skin. After the hot wax has solidified, the wax can be easily removed without leaving scar on the skin.

2. Temperature play

Ice play is the most typical kind of temperature play. The stinging sensation left by ice cubes on the skin can add an element of sensory stimulation and surprise to any sexy BDSM scene, and most people choose to rub ice cubes over the skin.

Another high-level temperature play is to use sex toys that can conduct heat, such as glass/full-metal sex toys. Before use, place glass/all-metal sex toys in a refrigerator or hot water. The temperature of these toys will change with the ambient temperature due to their thermal conductivity. Then put these sex toys with changed temperature on sensitive parts of the body quickly to feel the unexpected stimulation and surprise.
