BDSM Safety - Impact Play

A great deal of BDSM involves impact play in some form, be that spanking, flogging, whipping, caning, or even slapping and punching. Done properly this can be very erotic, and lead to a great time for the top and bottom. Done incorrectly, it can lead to a really bad time, injury or worse.

? Do NOT attempt any form of heavy impact play without knowing what you are doing.
? Do NOT strike with a closed fist.
? Make sure your toys are in good repair.
? NEVER do true impact play on the face, head, neck, finger, toes or over skin that is healing.
? Do not accidentally ?wrap? when flogging or whipping.
? Remember there may be an emotional component at play, the idea of being ?beaten? can cause triggers in the bottom.
? Practice until you are good, then practice some more, before you attempt impact play on a live subject.

Areas suitable for ?very light? impact play: face (light slaps only), palms, back of hands, joints, lower front, back and side (vital organs are here), the spine, and tops and bottoms of feet. These areas should only get a light brushing, no real impact.

Areas suitable for ?light? impact play: lower legs, arms, inner arms, breast, genitals, upper shoulders, top of buttocks (near spine), and the muscular ridge near the spine.

Areas suitable for ?heavy? impact play: Buttocks, upper back on either side of the spine, thighs, and lower shoulders.
