This week I thought i would delve into a few things that tend to instill fear and anxiety in me, but nevertheless are intriguing.
Fire has been a fascination for me since i my days as a child bedwetter. i would set different things on fire usually in the bathroom sink so I could quickly and easily dispose of the burning embers and ashes. Thankfully i outgrew that without burning down the house.
Not long ago i observed a Fire Play demonstration at the local Leather bar. The Dom was an expert at lighting afire various locations on the sub’s body. It seemed fairly safe because He extinguished the flame within seconds. i assumed that allowed for intense heat without actually burning the flesh. There was redness afterward but the sub didn’t complain of lingering pain and no superficial burns were obvious.
If i were to do this i would make absolutely sure the Dom was a Master at fire play.
i have observed cigar play several times. It involves the cigar the Dom happens to be smoking. The sub was bound each time with his arms over his head and his feet spread apart – also bound. The lit cigar was carefully brought closer and closer to the skin, first the nipples, then the chest and abdomen. With the first sub the Dom touched the cigar to the sub’s metal nipple rings then to the metal PA jewelry in the sub’s cock. The sub squealed with delight at the pain being induced. It was the same Dom in each of the cigar play demonstrations. So, He was quite adept at this kind of play. i would trust him to “light me fire” so to speak. Someday i hope to experience this with that Dom.
i was completely unaware of knife play until a coworker mentioned to several of us that one of His things was knife play. I was immediately drawn to him, and to the subject at hand. i was intrigued, and yet i also felt a twinge of fear at the prospect of having a knife held to my skin by a hot, hung, masculine Dominant. i even contemplated a small cut here and there. i suppose that gets into blood play. Knife play i assume is more about total submission, inducement of fear, and equating that with the sexual component.
This is probably one of the activities i would NOT consent to doing. i have a strong dislike and fear of guns. i grew up with lots of them in the home, but i have seen the effects of accidental discharge of guns, and the aftermath of intentional shooting of innocent victims. i know that even when the person handling the gun “knows” it has no bullets they have discharged, striking and injuring or killing people including children. i fear accidentally being shot!
i cannot submit to breath control either. i use to be able to hold my breath for a fairly long time, but after several bouts of pneumonia my lung capacity has diminished. Also, the extreme difficulty breathing i had with each episode of pneumonia there was severe shortness of breath, so the thought of having my breathing restricted or controlled by another person is frightening to me. i even have trouble with a gag of any kind shoved into my mouth. This is a strong phobia for me.
A seasoned Dom told me once that rape/abduction/gang bang scenerios were the most commonly verbalized fantasies of most submissives. i too have dreamed of being wanted by someone so much that i would totally submit to being abducted and repeatedly “raped” even though it would be consensual Play. Also, i have wanted to be desired so much that many hot Men would line up waiting their turn to pump me full of their cum while other men held me down.
However the Dom who told me that also said it is extremely hard for this type of scenario to be planned and executed. Too many players involved for it to be adequately carried out. Then there is the liability involved if there is an injury, or if the sub claims it was forced and non consensual. But a boy can dream, can’t he?
i suppose Y/you could call me a scaredy cat since i seem to fear lots of BDSM activities. And again, while i would like to get rid of my fears, and submit to being confined or caged, i have trouble trusting anyone enough to give up that much freedom of movement. i fear being caged and having the Dom turn out to be a psycho, or that he has a heart attack or stroke with no keys readily available for escape. i realize the likelihood of that happening is remote, I still harbor those fears.
i would urge you to be very careful about hooking up with new Doms and submitting to any kind of edge play like the ones i briefly described above. Always err on the side of caution. If He is a reputable Dom He will want to play with you when a strong bond of trust develops between Y/you two.
