Definition: "Hand job" is a slang term that is often used to refer to a specific type of male masturbation -- where a man's penis is physically stimulated by his partner's hand.

Specifically, a hand job involves caressing and manipulating the penis and testicles with one or both hands. This can be done either through clothing or on naked flesh, and it often involves use of a sexual lubricant. A hand job may be part of sexual foreplay, or it may involve bringing your partner to orgasm.
