In 2004, Samantha from Sex in the City introduced the mainstream world to a new concept: the pearl necklace. What is a pearl necklace? This is a sexual act that occurs when a many ejaculates on or around his partner’s neck. The droplets of cum resemble pearls, which is where the name comes from.
Although the name suggests the a man must ejaculate around or on a woman’s neck, many people also call the act of cumming on a person’s chest or breasts a pearly necklace, too.
Prior to this public exposure, the people who were familiar with the concept were typically porn aficionados. However, the past 10 years have seen the concept become even more familiar to sexually active adults, in part thanks to the Internet. The band ZZ Top has even sung about pearl necklaces, which had left some people asking “What is a pearl necklace and is it worth trying?”
There are several reasons why both partners might enjoy a pearl necklace. You might enjoy the sight of your partner masturbating in front of you before he orgasms and ejaculates on your chest.
Alternatively, a pearl necklace is a natural end to mammary intercourse, better known by its slang name of “titty fucking.” You’ll find an entire guide on how to “titty fuck” here. If you’re a cum fetishist – someone who enjoys when her partner comes on her – you might find receiving a pearl necklace particularly enthralling.
Some couples engage in pearl necklaces, facials and ejaculating on other body parts because they are engaging in the pull-out method as a form of birth control. When your partner finishes on your body rather than inside you, it lowers the risk of pregnancy, especially if you prefer not to use condoms. However, pulling out by itself is not adequate enough to be your sole form of birth control.
When your partner cums on your body, there’s no doubt that you are solely engaging in sex for pleasure, which can add an element of taboo to giving and receiving pearl necklaces.
Some people accuse men who engage in this act of objectifying women, which can certainly be true…but it can work well if you and your partner engage in power play or if you enjoy being sexually “marked.” If you want to turn the tables and dominate your man, then you may be interested in this article on dominating.
No matter the reason for engaging in this type of play or what activities occur before a peal necklace, it provides a sexy photo opportunity. You or your partner can snap a photo that you can share with others or keep private to enjoy together at a later date. If you’re even more adventurous, your partner can record the process from his point of view, which can make for a tantalizing video to watch together later.
However, just to be clear, not everyone enjoys receiving a pearl necklace. You might feel closer to your partner when he cums inside you or you may prefer to swallow or spit or not deal with his semen at all. It all comes down to personal preference.
Furthermore, the force at which he ejaculates means that aiming is often difficult. An attempted pearl necklace might result in a facial or a shot of cum straight to your eye, instead. Of course, it’s messy, and isn’t ideal if you don’t have the time to clean up afterward.
While not everyone loves receiving a pearl necklace, some women do it simply because their partner is so turned on by the act.
It’s perfectly acceptable if it’s not your thing or if you save this activity for days when you can properly clean up. Pearl necklaces, like any other sexual act, aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but you might be surprised to find that you like it, and you can even gauge your partner’s interest by asking him if he wants to try it out.
