Knife play is one of my favorite things when it comes to foreplay or BDSM. While it is very fun and exciting, it can also be pretty dangerous. This is why it is in the edge play category along with blood play and anything else that could hurt someone if not done right. Lets go over what knife play entails.
What is Knife play?
Knife play does not include ANY cutting into the skin or drawing blood. Anything that draws blood is considered blood play. Please make sure your submissive/partner/dom knows the difference and they are okay with anything you want to do or try with them. Knife play is the sensation, the act of feeling powerless, the fear of the person with the knife. If you both agree to just knife play and you end up cutting them it can really hurt the trust they have for you and trust is hard to get back. So, better to do it right the first time. Cutting clothing can be knife play as well. Experiment and have fun with it! You will never learn if you never try!
How do I hold the knife to lessen the chance of it cutting when I don't want it to?
If you are a beginner or don't have much experience it is safer to only use the back side of the knife. The back side is not sharp like the blade is but if you use it and the tip of the blade carefully your partner wont notice and will still get the full sensation. A lot of the sensation is the feeling of the cold medal against the skin. It might even arouse them more knowing you know what you are doing and are being careful.
Can I use any knife for knife play?
You can use almost any knife but be aware of all the sharp edges. Some knifes have a double edge tip or both sides are sharp. If both edges are sharp it's more dangerous.
How do I bring up to my partner that I'd like to try knife play?
If you already have a BDSM relationship then I would tell them that knife play is something you would like to try and see how they feel about it. Some people wont trust themselves enough to hold a knife to you and that's ok. Maybe they will be more comfortable with that the longer you are together. If they say it's a limit then please respect that! You want to make sure trust and consent are the center of the relationship.
If you don't have a BDSM relationship then I would say you found something interesting that you would like to try. Make sure to send them lots if info on it so they know how to do it safely. Be sure to tell them exactly what you want and don't want. You want to make sure they know your expectations before starting anything like this.
I would like like to take a minute to say that CNC (consent non consent) does NOT mean anyone can do stuff without consent and be like "she/he is into rape so its fine" no. No, its not. I've had 'doms' do this to me and it really made me think before telling people my kinks. Be careful out there. Lots of doms actually are not doms. they just want nudes so they act like they are doms to get them. They think subs are not smart or something but they are so wrong. This is why I don't do anything like this over the internet anymore. Be safe guys!
That's all I have for right now. Thanks for reading!
