asking for bastinado . . .

Serafina and I were partaking in some BDSM style activities Friday night, we'd been playing with clothespins and other goodies in our current sleeping space.  My darling slave/wife was well into into what is commonly called subspace, when it seemed to my mind, that Serafina was in a mindset where her inhibitions were down, and I might try to talk freely about her darker desires.

It's hard, sometimes, to discuss BDSM activities without eliciting odd feelings.  We know in our hearts and in our minds that there's no shame in saying what we want to give or receive, but yet it's hard to put those desires into words.  Sub-space isn't always a productive mindset, there are times it's so deep that a submissive has trouble vocalizing anything, let along forming coherent sentences about desires.

That first edge of subspace, before she's fallen deeply, does seem to me to be a good point to "extract confessions" from a submissive.  I'm not talking interrogation, that's an entirely different mindset for everyone, instead I'm simply talking about getting a girl to open up when she's really feeling her submission, feeling owned and safe enough to allow herself to become vulnerable.

It was at a moment like this, when Serafina asked me Friday night to experiment on her with a technique called bastinado . . .
Foot whipping, variously known as bastinado, falanga (phalanga), and falaka (falaqa), is a form of corporal punishment in which the soles of the feet are beaten with an object such as a cane, rod or club, a stout leather bullwhip, or a flexible bat of heavy rubber. It is sometimes favored as a form of torture because although extremely painful, it leaves few physical marks.  (from Wikipedia)
That wasn't the only "confession" she made, but it was one which opens a new door for us.  Of course I'm excited to open another chapter in the way we interact, not to mention work on new techniques and torments.  Without a doubt, I'll combine some foot tickling and some other sensation play (think wartenberg wheel) into a scene with the bastinado.  And, I certainly won't confine myself to just using my canes on the soles of her feet, I'm interested in the effects my floggers and crops will have as well.

If there ever was a time to think of me wearing an evil grin, my dear reader, it's now!

  1. Omega does that too..he'll wait sometimes for mouse to start to drift and ask her short questions...

    Sometimes mouse even forgets about it after (depending on how deeply she falls afterward).

    Hugs,

    1. Actually I trust Master Michael to know how far to go. . or not to go. . I did say I want to try it and decide if it is a limit and to what extent.

      I am not that ticklish. . I was very much as a youngster, but lost all of it over the years. Every now and then it seems to be coming back. . . It would be more fun to be ticklish. . I did enjoy getting tickled and such.

    2. I don't doubt your trust in Michael. :) I'm an odd duck as far as feet are concerned. And tickling really kills me. I can be beaten till nearly bloody, but touch my feet? eek.

      :)

  3. As is the case with most aspects of BDSM that we don't practice (which is most of them), we are fascinated by this, and enjoyed reading about it.

  4. Oh brave brave lady. I will happily volunteer my ass up for anything before voluntarily sticking my feet out.

  5. As you probably know, I have some serious love for having my feet beaten, especially with heavy thuddy implements (although I have also had them cropped, caned, and cut). I really look forward to seeing where you go with this!

Slippery When Wet - Gags & Drooling

Welcome to an ongoing discussion of gags and gagging in the world of BDSM.  Today, I'll be featuring an inevitable consequence of being gagged, as well as the fetish some have for this special aspect of keeping her quiet.

And, it should be said that today's post is a very slippery topic.  It could even be said that it's discussion occurs on a slippery slope, as folks tend to either love or hate the fact that gags can cause uncontrollable drooling.

Duct Tape Gags (keeping her quiet pt. 1)

An essential part of any abduction or damsel in distress scenario, nothing screams enforced submission better than the image of a submissive who has been bound and gagged.  Welcome to the first installment of "keeping her quiet", an ongoing discussion about gags and gagging in BDSM.

I'd first like to note, for you my dear reader, that the title "keeping her quiet" is not intended to be sexist in any way.  Please understand that any observations or advice I give are almost always equally applicable to gags used upon a male submissive.  My choice of a female pronoun is not intended to imply that female submissives, nor women in general, should be gagged or stifled from expressing themselves.  This is about the use of gags for BDSM scenes, not life in general.

The articles on gags are intended to be pansexual.  My original working title for this series of postings was actually "keeping them quiet".  While that's a more politically correct title, and…
