I am sharing something each day (not always every day in a row) covering the alphabet until I reach Z! Here we are at day 19! I am sharing topics having to do with sex, BDSM and/or kink. These topics are of things I am curious to learn about, love to know more about or just love to share.
If you have anything to add or have something else in that alphabet letter to share, please do so in the comments below.
Today’s sexy letter of the alphabet is:
S: Submission & Sensation Play
Sensation Play –
Sensation play can be sensual, where the sensations are generally pleasing and light. Many couples that would not consider themselves active in BDSM are familiar with this kind of play: the use of silk scarves, feathers, ice, massage oils, and other similar implements.
Sensation play in BDSM can also involve sadomasochistic play, involving the application of carefully controlled stimuli to the human body so that it reacts as if it were actually hurt. While this can involve the infliction of actual pain, it is usually done in order to release pleasurable endorphins, creating a sensation somewhat like runner’s high or the afterglow of orgasm, sometimes called “flying” or “body stress”. (Wikipedia)
**Sensation play describes a wide variety of activities, both vanilla and kinky, that use the body’s senses as a way to arouse and provide stimulation to a partner.
Although sensation play is often related to skin sensations, it doesn’t have to be so limited. Sight, taste, and hearing can also be included in sensation play. (Kinkly)
I put Submission and Sensation Play here together because they can go together in a scene.
As you see above, submission is giving up control to a dominant person or one of authority. And in a D/s relationship, the submissive gives up control to the Dominant in either scenes or in daily life. It depends on which they have agreed upon.
Also as above, sensation play is one of playing with the senses which can be done in both a “vanilla” relationship as well as a “kinky” relationship.
I have read about, known others that have experienced and myself have experienced the relationship of submission and sensation play together in a scene.
Where the submissive gives the Dominant control to play with their sensations. They will either go slow and gentle, moving up to intense. Or straight out intense sensation play. Depends on how far on the spectrum their Sadist and masochist natures are, to the level of the sensations. 😉
