Prick me the right way

If you had told me 5+ years ago when @domsigns and I were just starting out on this D/s road together that we would end up doing needle play I would have called you a mad person. I can’t say it was on the hard limits list but it was certainly on the “not really interested, pretty sure it’s not for me” list. But as I wrote in my post about medical staplers, Never Say Never again, back in January of this year

“The moral of this story is never say never, 5 years ago I was fairly certain this would never be of interest to me is but now is most definitely on my list of things I am really looking forward to exploring a lot more. One of the things I love about kink and our D/s relationship is that we are constantly evolving, learning, experimenting, testing and exploring each other and ourselves.”

The same statement applies to needle play.

However since Christmas, when he bought the needles for me, we really have had such limited amount of time for ourselves that apart from one small experiment when he used two needles in my back we have not managed to explore more. That does not diminish my desire to do so though in fact quite the opposite. I am looking forward to it with a big grin on my face. The one little taster I did get has left me all the more curious and excited about the idea.

I am fairly certainly that this will be a form of play that I will find very centring and therapeutic. It is going to require me to lie very still and that allows for me to really sink in to the physical sensations. Unlike impact play that can be very highly charged, needle play will, I believe, have more in common with a massage or rope bondage, in that slow deliberate controlled way. It involves very controlled precise actions on his part that will require focus and concentration in a very different way, almost like an artist putting the delicate finishing touches to their painting. Being the focus on his attention in that is a huge turn on for me and also very relaxing, couple that with the sensation of having my skin pierced and I think, I hope, I believe that needle play is going to be something that will make me fly into that heady, relaxed, carefree subspace place in my mind. To be honest, just the thought of taking my clothes off and submitting myself to him for this makes it hard for me to concentrate on writing this because my mind just starts to drift off and as a result these last few sentences I have written and deleted a number of times in an attempt to write something that makes sense.

Lack of time can be a bugger when it comes to wanting to explore new things. When you are more familiar with something it is easier to fit it into smaller time window because you are confident in your knowledge and skills. Clearly some things take more time than others, for example we would not think about setting up the bondage bench for just a couple of hours in the evening but he might decide to flog me at bedtime or put me over his knee in the afternoon between meetings. Clearly needle play is not something you just fit into a free half an hour especially when you are both new to it and as with nearly all new kinky play we indulge in he tends to like to take a bit more time to plan and think about it and wait for the right moment.

Hopefully, maybe. possibly, the Easter weekend might just present us with the right moment and if it does you can be sure that I will be writing more posts on this topic as a result because you never really know for sure until you try, although sometimes you have a pretty good idea that something might just prick you the right way.

Needle play has never been anything I’ve been interested in or intrigued by. But the way you describe it here has me re-thinking that attitude.

I’d love to have you write more about this.. the details as well as the feelings on both your parts.

And I’d love to hear more about the lights that were stapled to your back.. how did that come about and how did you did it?

You can read more about the lights on this post he wrote on This D/s Life They were all his idea. It was a bit fiddly at some point to get the staples just right and couple had to be redone but it looked so pretty and felt fabulous too.

I will write more about needle play when we do it and I am sure he will write something on This D/s Life too

I am totally intrigued by this and can’t wait to read more about it after you have tried it. I am curious to know if it indeed grounds you, how it makes you feel, if maybe you experience subspace while he’s busy with the needles… I am just intrigued by the whole experience. Looking forward to read about it.

I never really took notice of needle play, is it a bit like acupuncture or totally different?

I’m a little sad you haven’t had a chance to try it yet but I agree you need time and space, especially the first time, to focus.

I think you’re well aware that I space very quickly with needles, it’s a very cathartic experience, relaxing, meaningful and blissful. I know that sounds bizarre as its sticking sharp things into your skin. The thing that surprised me more than anything is I always fall into a deep undisturbed sleep the night of any needleplay scene. I’m not a good sleeper so a whole night of sleep is amazing!!

So is needle play like acupuncture? Because I find that very relaxing.

I have never had acupuncture so I can’t comment

We kept meaning to fit it in but time was never on our side. I am hoping Easter weekend will provide us with the opportunity
