These candles are perfect for experimentation and seeing what works for you and your partner. They’re not as intense as, say, a flogger or whip, and they don’t require any handy work a sex swing might—but they’re definitely worth adding to your bedtime routine for some added heat.
Here’s everything to know about them and why they’re absolutely the move.

What is a massage candle?
Do not mistake these bbs for any old candle you have lying around from Bath & Body works; they are not the same. “A massage candle is specifically formulated to melt at lower temperatures compared to standard candle wax,” says licensed therapist Christene Lozano, founder of online sex therapy service Meraki Counseling.
In other words, massage candles won’t completely burn the eff out of you the way a regular candle might.
Here’s how it works: The hot wax melts into an oil when poured on the skin, turning a hot sensation into an extremely erotic massage, says Lozano.
How do you use a massage candle?
For starters, know that it takes between 20 to 30 minutes for the massage candle to melt, so start by using it as ~sexy~ lighting in the dark, suggests Lozano. “Once it has melted, carefully pour it on to your partner’s body.”
If you really want to make things super sexy, add a blindfold to the mix. “It adds an element of fun and surprise,” says Lozano.
Some things to keep in mind:
- Make sure you’re about 10 to 12 inches away from your partner’s body as you pour. This prevents anything from being too hot.
- Test it on your skin first to make sure it’s not too too hot. If it’s too hot for you, it’s probs too hot for them.
- Choose places to pour on your partner’s body that are thicker, like the stomach, upper back, lower back, and thighs. (Let’s steer clear from the p in v for obvious reasons, mmk?)
