World Candle Month | Wax Play
September 1 All day
With daylight time quickly getting shorter AND since it IS “Scening September,” what better time than to celebrate the romance of the candle? September is World Candle Month… which can add to the mood AND a little kink to our D|s-M scenes and playtime!
What scents turn him on? Scented candles to add to the ambience of that special scene with our Sir! All kinds of scents are available – essential oil candles actually add a bit of power to the punch; here are some scents that have been tested and proven to turn a man on (though we KNOW that every Sir is unique!):
Wax Play in D/s-M
A fun way to utilize candles is in Married Dominance and Submission. Use candles with CAUTION and SAFETY in your wax play scenes and play! It’s a great addition to a bondage scene with sensation play. The biggest question is, what type of candle wax to use? ALWAYS do a small test on the back of your hand to see how it feels before using it! The most gentle wax is massage oil wax, which is warm to the skin and melts into massage oil when dripping… adding to the sensual fun. Next is soy, and then paraffin (which is hotter… so again, CAUTION and SAFETY are key), which is what most of the wax play candles on the market are made of. Talk with your Sir on what you’d like to explore with this together!
NOTE: DO NOT use beeswax on the skin; it burns quite hot and can burn someone badly! Also make sure to have towels or something disposable underneath to catch any stray wax, and have soothing aftercare ready for gentle removal and soothing.
Explore and expand your D/s-M with candles this month!
