Hear me talk about pain and pleasure
In this video I show some impact toys and talk about means of inflicting pain, including impact play.
In this video I share some musings about why kinksters might desire to experience pain.
– How you want to feel.
– What the needs are that you want to be met within the scene.
– What possible issues could be acted out.
Being physically present
Many of us in our busy adult lives are in our heads all of the time; we feel overwhelmed by thoughts and it might not be easy to slow those thoughts down or relax into our bodies. In this type of scenario, impact play offers a ‘hack’. By receiving a spanking or a flogging, a person can immediately become more present in their body. A consciously administered impact play session can be incredibly soothing, because it enables the person receiving the impact to move from inhabiting their head, to inhabiting their body. It’s actually very relaxing to feel repetitive thudding. For people that experience anxiety or racing thoughts, impact play can be a nice way of them transitioning from their anxious thoughts into the sensations of their body.
Aside from any therapeutic applications, impact play as an erotic practice between sexual partners can be a fun way to experience new sensations together, which don’t focus on the genitals. Impact play can bring variety into sex; it doesn’t have to hurt (although pain can release pleasure endorphins into the body) but it can be playful and exciting to experiment with.
In peace, love and kink,
