BDSM Edge Play

BDSM Edge play

Do not engage in any form of BDSM edge play unless you are an experienced exponent of that particular type of BDSM play. You must be aware of all the safety aspects and have them in place prior to play. This is definitely not for the novice or inexperienced and can certainly be life threatening. Have absolutely no doubt about that at all. It is your responsibility to play safely, sanely and consensually at all times. Respecting the care and safety of those with whom you play and accepting the responsibility for any and all actions. The buck certainly stops with you.

Edge play, the meaning thereof, can be interpreted in many ways. I have chosen for the purposes of this page, and the information it conveys, play that can be life threatening by its very nature. Of course all forms of play can be life threatening in the wrong hands. However to my way of thinking Electricity Play, Breath Control and others that are listed here, can and are life threatening and not for the novice practitioner. Breath control, sometimes called erotic asphyxiation, is the subject of continuing debate within not only the leather community but all BDSM communities. Some say it’s impossible to do safely, while others maintain that it’s no riskier than some other things we do. The bottom line, however, is that choking or asphyxiation is dangerous, and brain damage, heart attack, or death could and can result. If you’re compelled to experiment in this area you had better hold a first aid certificate and have all and any safety requirements in place first, AND be extremely careful.

BDSM Edge play comes in many forms and one sometimes overlooked by many is Mind or Mental Play. Playing with the mind can be an extremely dangerous thing to do. The repercussion may not be evident immediately. It may visit itself upon the submissive days, weeks, months later when suddenly the mind bends and the flood gates of stored and hidden emotions pour out. I for one before playing with a mind would want to know the submissive I am playing with extraordinarily well. I would want to know of past abuse particularly in a Age Play or Rape Play situation. You have a mandatory responsibility for the well being and safety of the person with whom you are playing. No discussion on that point and no correspondence entered into. You both have a responsibility to be total open and honest and set out andy and all problems that might arise and make those problems known to each other. Bit late when something goes wrong to say “O I didn’t tell you about that because…I thought you might think less of me…think me unworthy…not love me anymore…I was too angry” or whatever. Communication is the absolute required ingredient of success and fulfilling play. It doesn’t work any other way.

BDSM Edge play is also merely the action of extending the boundaries of play by offering new challenges, physical or mental, to the Edges of play you and your submissive are already familiar with. By simply asking of yourself or your submissive to reach beyond that point you are entering the world of edge play. Unexplored territory, unfamiliar ground, a step into the unknown. It may be as simple as moving from hand spanking to crop. Not a simple step mind you but that would be a step beyond and closer to the EDGE requiring greater Trust. It could be staring into the abyss and beyond, facing or releasing inner demons and beasts. At some stage you will find yourself standing on the edge.
