What is “Hot Oil”?
Hot oil is a thermal ointment that provides multiple benefits when applied to the hair and body. In BDSM, hot oil is used in temperature and sensation play.
While some couples use ice and some use candles in temperature and sensation play, hot oil is also a good alternative during plays in BDSM that involve exciting tactile senses. When hot oil is applied to the skin, it generates a warm sensation. It also gives the skin a slippery feeling. Slippery and warm sensations are desired by some and may help boost erotic arousal among partners.
The increase in body temperature likewise helps build up tension and desire.
Hot oil is also commonly applied to the skin in spas and massages. The warmth generated from applying hot oil may relax the body, making couples feel more open to more sexually stimulating acts.
Dos, Don’ts & Tips
