The Top Five Tools For Impact Play

Flogging whip with cash

Roll down those trousers, guys! You’re in for a real treat.

Impact play is a more extreme form of spanking; an intense pounding that is often done with the intent to cause deep tissue bruising and leave markings. Not only does it increase blood flow to the area in question, thereby making it more sensitive, it stimulates the nerve endings and releases waves of pleasurable endorphins. Due to its recent popularity, there are plenty of specialised implements available including; floggers, whips, rods, switches, and canes to keep you busy!

Safety First

It hits us hard when we find out that some couples don’t play safely. For example, there are some parts of the body that should be avoided always. Hitting these parts of the body could result in sever, sometimes fatal, damage. This includes:

Kidneys – these can be found in the back below the ribcage and above the butt. They are extremely delicate and it doesn’t take much to impact them.

Tailbone – this is at the base of the spine. A whip is unlikely to break it, but there’s still a possibility that it will. It’s just not worth the risk.

Spine – it’s easy to bruise as there’s not much protecting it and there’s always a chance that a disk would be dislodged after impact.

Neck – is a very sensitive area that is made up of arteries, tendons, glands, and of course the larynx.

Face – although slapping the face lightly is fine, there are a lot of areas on the face that can be easily damaged such as the eyes, jaw and ears. There’s also a risk of causing permanent damage.

Some implements have the potential to open the surface of the skin, either by cutting, scraping or by causing the weakened skin to break. Keep in mind that thin whips such as bullwhips and tightly braided cats have a smaller impact area and are more likely to cut. So, always remember to take the necessary precautions; don’t use porous canes with multiple partners, clean your equipment thoroughly and keep a first aid kit nearby, complete with latex gloves and antibacterial cleaner. Only progress to intermediate implements such as rubber floggers, leather cats and wide-tailed floggers once you are comfortable with the basics.

As with all forms of kink play, a safe word should be established so that the action can be stopped immediately should anything go wrong. Pick a word beforehand, making sure it is a word that is unlikely to be said by accident in the bedroom. It should be agreed that the safe word will only be used in serious situations, and that the scene will stop immediately if it is said by either party. If you are combining Impact play with gagging, a safe signal should be agreed upon or there should be a bell that that the bottom can ring when in distress.
