RS: The ‘SM’ In #BDSM – Part Three, Pain


I suppose it would be kind to leave a warning here before you start. Many, if not all, of the links (and pictures) in this series of posts are totally NSFW. If you want to have a look, do, by all means, but don’t be surprised if you find naked boy bits at the other end . . . or girl bits.
Happy? Let’s go.

First up, let me just say that I’m writing this post while listening to the Showaddywaddy Megamix (followed by a J-ska version of Monkey Man) and, given some of the pictures I’m looking at, it is my most BIZARRE blogging experience to date. I find myself vaguely turned on and desperate to hit the dance floor and shake my tush.

ANYWAY . . .

I want to talk about to very specific aspects of pain today, CBT and NT or, cock-and-ball-torture and nipple torture. I focus on these as they are quick and easy discussion points and cover about as much as I know about pain for pleasure.

Sooooo . . . CBT. Good ole torture of the most delicate parts of a person’s anatomy. Or is it? I have it on good authority that both cock and balls can take rough manhandling before any pain is caused at all. Discomfort, sure, but pain? A kick in the nads isn’t at all the same as using the many tools I’ve heard of when it comes to CBT.

Pegs, wool (for binding), chopping up latex gloves, harnesses, collars, elastic bands, paperclips, weights . . . it goes on and on. And though there is often pain involved, that isn’t the be all and end all. Many times it is simply about the discomfort or the stress of the position the cock-bearer (haha, cock-bearer—and yes, I’m trying to avoid saying ‘men’ here as men aren’t the only people with cocks) may find themselves in.

There are more extreme forms of cock and ball play involving e-stim (electrical stimulation) and urethal play (nope!—Really not my cup of tea, but it takes all sorts).

Nipple torture can work much the same way. Putting the nipple, areola and/or the rest of the breast tissue in a situation of extreme stimulation. Can be achieved through slapping, pinching, licking, biting, whipping, you get the idea. Also, the same sorts of tools that may be used in CBT (see above).

This post talks about an experience with e-stim that I find fascinating, particularly since the pain/discomfort lead directly to pleasure rather than the usual things someone might assume would do so.

So why is this arousing? A bit like the last time, hell if I know, but, again, there are all sorts of articles, blogs and wikis that cover the questions in different forms over and over and over (and over . . . I didn’t wade through the whole article, but I did skim read it. Fascinating stuff).

In short, given that my writings these days are taking more of a BDSM turn, I’m keen to learn more about both these forms of stimulation because it think it would be fun to explore exactly that question above. Why? What does it mean? Is it healthy? Is it scary? Why is pain taboo at all? And so on. But you know me, I enjoy giving myself a rough time when I write.

Apparently. 😉
