Your Bag is Empty

October 22, 2021 3 min read

Wax play is a fun and exciting way to spice up your sex life. Once you’ve tried it for yourself, you might start to see candles differently. You have to discuss it with your partner. Open up the topic slowly at first and see if they’re interested. If you can both get on the same page, you can start learning more. When you’re ready, you can take baby steps towards practicing the act little by little. 

In our last article, we talked a little about preparation for wax play. Now that you knowhow to prepare yourself, you should also knowwhat to prepare for wax play. You must have the right tools, materials, and even ground rules necessary for wax play. It’s a relatively safe activity, but there’s still some risk to watch out for when you’re playing with fire. 

If you and your partner are good and ready, here are the most important things you need to prepare:

A Safeword

Pouring hot wax onto bare skin can be...well, hot. In more ways than one, wax play can be very intense. For some people, the hotter, the better. However, others have more limited tolerance for it. 

Before you can begin to have fun in the bedroom, all parties should discuss and disclose their boundaries. Establish a safeword to let each other know if you want to stop or take a break. Remember to try the wax itself before putting it on your partner. Wax play is only fun if everyone’s boundaries are respected.

Body-Safe Wax Candles

Now that you have a safeword, it’s time to move on to the wax itself. Make sure to buy the right tools and materials for the activity. When playing with wax in the bedroom, you can’t just use any old candle. 

Some candles are designed specifically for this activity. On the other hand, there are also premium candles that can do the job. Typically, premium candles aren’t advertised for this purpose. Do more research and you’re bound to find tons of suggestions and recommendations. 

Regular candles could lead to harsher burns or even skin irritation. The last thing you want to happen during foreplay is a medical emergency. Avoid any of those unfortunate and potentially embarrassing scenarios by using the right wax candles.

Pre-Play and Post-Play Materials

This particular activity can cause quite a mess. You will find that after all the fun has been had, the sheets, pillows, and even your body will be quite a sight. To avoid a hard cleanup, you should prepare the area ahead of time. Depending on your preference, you can either lay some plastic down, old sheets, towels, or even wax-play-specific beddings for easy cleanup.

Next, you also need to prep your body. If this is your first time doing wax play, you might now know how painful removing it can be. You can prepare your body by oiling it up before the fun begins. The oil will protect your skin and make cleanup easier. You should also consider shaving if you plan to drip wax over areas with dense hair. 


The most important thing you should prioritize during wax play is safety and comfort. It might seem ironic because heat will be dripping all over your body. But the objective of this activity is to enhance your sexual experience and elevate your senses. Take care of yourself and your partner. Wax play should not be painful. It should be fun, exciting, and thrilling.
