A pearl necklace is a slang term referring to a sexual act in which a man ejaculates semen on or near the neck, chest or breast of another person. It can be done following mammary intercourse or oral sex. [1] The result is said by some to look like a necklace of pearls because of the stringy translucent white drops of semen that are deposited there.[2][3]

It is one of the activities that prostitutes use as safe sex alternatives for clients who refuse to wear a condom.[1][4] One prostitute explained to a researcher that it's because mammary intercourse with a big-breasted woman feels like penetrative sex to the man.[1]

The "pearl necklace" is a topic that has appeared in popular culture. A song, "Pearl Necklace", by ZZ Top refers to the act, and it has been featured in movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall[n 1] and Half Baked,[n 2] and at least one episode of HBO show Sex and the City.[5]
