There are lots of ways to spice things up in the bedroom, and no shortage of advice on what those options are. But what about playing with his perineum? Is that a good idea? While we can’t articulate exactly why you probably don’t want to touch that, it might come up at some point, so we’ve compiled a list of reasons not to feel pressured into touching it:
Does he even want that?
But like does he? Does it even feel like anything? What is to be gained? Don’t most guys not feel anything when you touch their nipples? What makes you think that he’ll feel anything down there? If he hasn’t mentioned it, it’s perfectly acceptable to not tickle that thing or really even accept that it’s there.
Will he respect you after that?
How will he look at you after that? Could he introduce you to his mom knowing what you’ve done? What if you kiss his perineum and then try to kiss his mouth? We really have no idea how he feels about this on a physical or emotional level. So maybe just ask him first?
Will other people judge you for this?
What if he tells his friends? Will you be able to be around his friends without wondering if they all know you’re a perineum-toucher? Is that a bad thing? We’re not sure but either way it’s okay if you don’t want to explore perineum play.
You might ruin him for the next girl.
God forbid that one day you two break up. But if you do, what sort of trap have you laid for the next girl? What if he expects her to touch his taint because you did and she’s also as skeptical of the practice as we are?
It’s pretty much his butt.
We can’t stress this enough. It’s kind of his butt. Butt play is fine if you’re into it but if you’re not, you don’t have to do it! And you don’t have to touch that perineum (if that’s even what he wants??).
So now you’re armed with the sort of knowledge of what his perineum is and why you shouldn’t feel bad about not touching it. If you do figure out more about what’s going on with that thing, let us know. We literally have no idea.
