Understanding Bondage Impact Play

According to Ortmann & Sprott (2012), impact play is a sensation play related to BDSM. It involves the exchange of power where the dominant is in control and the receiver of the impact is submissive. You have tested impact play if your partner has tried to spank or slap your ass cheeks. However, Weiss (2011) explained that impact play includes not only spanking, but other sensation plays like flogging, whipping, piercing, and canning. Let not the few misconceptions about impact play limit you from enjoying this pleasurable and intense BDSM play.

Why Do Some People Enjoy Impact Play?

People have different ways of enjoying impact play. Generally, most people love trying out different BDSM games to see if they are capable of various games, including impact play. Others are drawn to impact play because of the rush that often comes with intense pain. However, some find the physical sensation of pain pleasurable. However, some people will not go for impact play because of the physical pain or sensations but the psychological components. Some prefer impact play to other BDSM games because of the power exchange. Switching power during the scene makes the play pleasurable for other bondage players. Surprisingly, some bondage couples will consider impact play because of humiliation. Finally, receiving punishment from the dominant partner is sensational and satisfying for others.

Different Types of Impact Play You Need to Know

Have you ever tried BDSM play before? Impact play comes in various types, allowing you to choose what suits your desires and preferences. The different types of impact play are categorized according to body parts, techniques, and tools. Most of these types are safe for beginners and intermediate bondage players since the intensity can be controlled. However, they require more safety precautions, knowledge, and education on how to play and care for any risks. Here are the types of impact play to consider;

Spanking

Are you trying spanking for the first time? Consider using your hands for a comfortable and safer experience in spanking as a beginner. Using your hands before any bondage tools lets you get used to reality. Moreover, starting slow allows you to learn more about what you are getting into. For spanking and any other impact play, consider using safe words. This allows you to enjoy safe and comfortable BDSM play.

Flogging

Are you thinking of introducing flogging in your BDSM scene? You can always choose this amazing bondage tool for intense BDSM play. Flogging is an impact play that allows the dominant partner to strike their submissive partners. You are likely to feel different sensation levels depending on the type of flogger and technique applied. Here are some types of floggers to consider for a pleasurable flogging experience;

  • Rubber floggers.
  • Leather floggers.
  • Silicone floggers.
  • Suede floggers.
  • Paracord floggers.

Consider choosing what suits your preferences and experience for some pleasurable and intense BDSM play.

Whipping

Whipping is one of the most common types of impact play. It is identical to flogging but differs in style. Whips are often made from leather material with a flexible handle, allowing the dominant player to comfortably. For pleasurable bondage play, you can use your whips with other bondage tools like wrist and ankle cuffs, gags, and blindfolds. Moreover, there are different types of BDSM whips, including quirt, snake, stock, and dragon tail whip. Consider buying bondage whips for intense BDSM play.

Canning

You do not want to miss the intense, sensational, and burning pain of the canning effect. A cane is a cylindrical and long tool made from either wood, bamboo, plastic, or metal. It is used for striking the body for intense pain and pleasure. Bondage canes also come in different sizes and shapes, allowing you to choose what suits you the best.

Punching and Slapping

Punching and slapping might be part of impact play, but not as common as some like canning or whipping. Slapping involves the hands, and your partner can spank your using the open-handed strike. Punching is technically folding your fist, and it can be used on your partner's back or inner thighs to deliver intense sensations. Moreover, you can also use the palm of your hand to spank your partner’s cheeks. However, this requires you to be careful not to knock out their teeth.

Aftercare

Aftercare is one of the essential aspects to consider when getting involved with any kinky play. It is essential in impact play. You strike your partner with an object several times. The appearance of marks all over the back, thighs, and butt might be too much to handle. Moreover, the pain you subjected your partner to might not be too light to leave them uncared for. This is why aftercare is essential for any impact play. You can always kiss, cuddle, cover, massage, or hug them to assure them of your presence. Aftercare will also help improve your trust and love for each other.
