Warm Up Your Hands

No guy appreciates their member being caressed by cold hands. If your hands are freezing, be sure to warm them up beforehand. That can happen by physically rubbing them together, using a pocket hand warmer, or engaging in a hot and heavy make out session. There's no way your hands will still be chilly after doing one of those three things. And if you can think of another means to warm them up, by all means, do it.

Use Lube

We can't stress enough how critical lube is in the bedroom. You might not think you need it, but trust us, you do. You could always lick your hands to give them some extra grease before gliding them down your spouse's member. However, lube can do that so much better. There are also plenty of options that are meant to heighten the sensation. Licking your hands can't offer that.

Use Both Hands

This goes without saying, but a hand job requires you to use your hands—both of them. Don't just let one do all the work and then switch to the other when you get tired. Using both allows for a better feeling than just one. Pro tip: Men love when you do both and twist up and down their shaft.

Play With the Balls

We know we said to use both hands on the shaft, but you can let them wander to fondle the balls for a bit. What makes a great hand job even better is when you remember to give those dangling balls of flesh some much-needed TLC. Remember to go a little easy on them though. Too much squeezing isn't exactly enjoyable.

Apply Pressure

It's not enough to let your hands roam up and down your husband's member. You have to apply a little bit of pressure here and there. You're not creating friction, you're turning him on so he'll potentially last longer in bed. Plus, the tighter the grip, the better it feels. Don't worry about being too aggressive with your grip, because your partner will tell you if it's too much or not enough.

Engage Your Partner

Don't just assume you know what you're doing or that your partner enjoys how you're using your hands, ask them. Keep them engaged throughout the whole process, because this will only heighten the desire you'll have for one another. Ask if they like what you're doing or if you should do something else. While you can likely tell from their moans, it's always nice to ask.

Don't Rush

A common mistake many make when it comes to giving a hand job is going too hard too fast. Sex is a marathon, not a sprint. It can be, if that's what you're going for, but the longer you and your partner can last, the better it is. Take things slow with your hand job. Yes, apply pressure and let your hands get them all warmed up, but don't try to get them off within two strokes. Let them enjoy it.

Try Different Positions

There's no one position you should be giving a hand job in. And what's comfortable for some isn't comfortable for others. Find what makes both you and your partner feel comfortable, because it could be a position you'll be spending quite a bit of time in. Or, you could switch up the position every so often to keep things interesting. It's all up to you.

Keep Things Simple

When giving a hand job, you really don't have to get all that fancy. There's really only so much you can do with your hands to get them off, so stick within your wheelhouse. If something feels weird or uncomfortable for you to do, don't do it. Yes, you should push yourself out of your comfort zone, but not with hand jobs. Keeping things simple is generally the way to go.

Be Confident

When you're confident in your abilities to give the best hand job of all time, you'll do just that. Don't get in your head or tell yourself you're doing something wrong. You're not. If you followed all the tips above, you'll give the best hand job ever. The only ingredient missing is you believing in yourself. God, that was cheesy. We're not sorry about it though, because it's true.
