Using wax for the first time
My wife and I were recently chatting about new desires, and she mentioned using wax. Is there a special wax to use or do I just grab a candle stick and cautiously drip it on to her? Are there techniques when using wax in the bedroom?
miss-behaviours: You should use candles with a low melting point like soy candles. Melting point of wax can also be lowered by adding mineral oil.
(Do a small test patch before you get into it to make sure the wax isn’t hot enough to cause permanent burns.)
You could start by slowly dripping the wax down ‘meaty’ intimate areas like the chest or stomach.
sandybeachclam: Makes a huge mess if you aren’t careful. Test it first to see how bad it burns. Different types wax feel different. Don’t drip on hairy parts !
cuddlebear8307: There are really great candles that some adult stores carry, or I’m sure you could find them online that are make it more controlled safety. Personally, it’s the sense of it all and the burn from it isn’t what the pleasure comes from.
MrPuppyBliss: Low temp wax so that it doesn’t start out too hot.
The higher above the skin you hold the candle, the longer the wax has to cool as it falls. So holding the candle close may be too intense or actually burn while holding the candle four feet above the skin will be much less intense. Start at the least intense you can be and slowly work towards the maximum intensity you and your partner want to experience.
I always enjoy using the blade of my knife to remove the wax after it dries on the skin. Careful use of the blade is an experience all by itself and can be extremely erotic.
oceanscales: Low melting point like others mentioned can help it be safe and not too hot. There’s also such a product as “massage lotion candles” if you wanted to start at kind of more of a ‘beginner’s’ point than actual candles – they melt really fast and stay oily for a while.
