A hand job, also spelled handjob, is a form of manual stimulation performed on a penis. It may be used as foreplay or may be continued to the point of orgasm and ejaculation. It involves many techniques, which differ depending on partner preferences and may or may not include stimulation of the testicles, scrotum and perineum along with the penis.

According to Merriam Webster, the first known use of the term hand job in this context was in 1939.

A hand job is occasionally called hand sex or handsex.

More About Hand Job

Pleasing a partner with a hand job involves experimentation and communication. Giving a good hand job also involves getting to know your partner and becoming familiar with the male anatomy and the sensitivity of its various parts. A hand job may also differ depending on whether the person has a circumcised or uncircumcised penis.

Because penises are not self-lubricating, lubricant is recommended for a hand job. It makes things more pleasurable, and helps ensure no painful friction is involved.

One key benefit of a hand job is that it carries very little risk of STI transmission or pregnancy.
