What Do Ball Stretchers Do? | Cock & Ball Gear Guide
In our previous blog focused on cock and ball gear, we explored some of the basic — and more adventurous styles — in this category, Cock Rings. Now it's time to level up and go deeper into this type of BDSM play, let's explore ball dividers/ball stretchers.
What are ball dividers/ball stretchers?
Ball dividers/ball stretchers include a wide variety of styles that focus on the testicles. Ball stretching can be achieved using weights that are placed on the scrotum to stretch out the muscles and tissues and pulls the testicles down. Ball dividers / ball stretchers also achieve stretching with styles that are more like sheaths that wrap around the testicles and elongate. The purpose of ball stretching is to increase the sensitivity — and therefore the stimulation — of the testicles.
How do you wear ball dividers/ball stretchers?
Before slipping on a ball divider or ball stretcher, it’s important to be completely relaxed. You can also massage the scrotum area using the thumb and index finger to massage between the penis and testicles and gently tugging at the testicles for about five minutes to allow for the blood to rush to the area and then relax.
Before sliding on a ball stretcher, you should use lubricant to comfortably get the device in place. Be gentle as you slide the ball divider or ball stretcher into place. You should never pull or twist too hard.
How do ball dividers/ball stretchers work?
The reason why ball dividers/ball stretchers feel so good to wear is simply because stimulation to the testicles feels pleasant for men. During oral sex, a lot of penis-owners like to have their testicles stimulated as well through licking, massage and gently tugging. Ball dividers/ball stretchers offer this type of stimulation simply by wearing them.
For the best experience using ball dividers/ ball stretchers, always make sure that they are not too tight. If extreme pain or discoloration is experienced, then the device should be removed. Additionally, ball dividers/ball stretchers should not be worn for long periods of time to avoid cutting off blood supply to the scrotum.
Ball dividers/ball stretchers help to promote sexual wellness by increasing the sensation of pleasurable stimulation. As we’ve all become familiar with, a healthy sex life has many other health benefits like improving mood, boosting your immune system, lowers blood pressure and lessens pain among many other helpful side effects.
