Pleasuring your man manually — whether it's a prelude to intercourse or an erotic act in itself — is a good skill to have in your bag of tricks. It's not as intimate as its kissin' cousin -- the blow job -- but a good hand job can "take you there," in the words of the Staples Singers.
There's something thrilling about doing the "reach around" or the "reach under" to caress your man's genitals, but do you ever wonder if you're doing it right? Or maybe you can be doing it better. Most likely you know what you're doing instinctively, but just in case you're into having a little refresher course, an article about how to make a hand job easier that was posted recently on Glamour.com shows off a new technique that may have your man crying out for mercy.
Try to remember that your attitude is more important than your technique, so don't get all hung up on whether or not you're doing it right and just have fun. The fact that you want to please your man enough to want to try something new is going to be a huge turn on that reaps huge rewards.
