It's not the necklace you think.

The topic of discussion is pearls, and no, it's not the kind that come from under the sea. These pearls are made up of seamen. See what I did there? 

OK, you may have heard of a pearl necklace as it relates to sex, but do you really know what is a pearl necklace and why you would want one? The pearl necklace is one of the best ways to add a little kink into your sex life without really diving too far in. It’s a good starter sex act to find out how comfortable you are with someone new.

Essentially, giving someone a pearl necklace means that a man orgasms on someone’s chest or neck, with the drops of semen looking like individual pearls. How creative, right?

A pearl necklace is the result of another sexual act that precedes it, like a hand or blowjob. "Tittyf*cking" is another popular choice because, well, location, location, location.


In her book Guide To Wicked Sex, Jessica Drake, a porn star and sex educator, shares some insight on the pearl necklace. She argues that the pearl necklace is a great alternative to a facial (when a guy ejaculates on someone’s face) since it’s a lot less invasive and is easier to talk to a partner about. She says that a pearl necklace is especially useful when experimenting with a new partner so that you can see how much and how far he orgasms before letting him ejaculate in other places.

If you want to try out this sex practice out, wait until a time when you are giving a handjob or blowjob and when your partner is about to orgasm, aim their penis at your neck or chest. It might be best to communicate your plan before the act so your partner can let you know when they are about to ejaculate.

However, if you want your partner to be in charge, just let him know that you are OK with the pearl necklace so he knows his boundaries. Have fun and be careful not to get any in your eyes.
