Pain threshold

Pain threshold
253

Pain threshold is a stimulation that is caused to a nervous system due to the physical pain. Pain threshold is an “exclusive” feature of each individual. Some action may result in a terrible pain or in a slight tickle based on the organism and psychological status of a person.

There are two borders of PT:

  • The bottom one is responsible for the level, where you start feeling pain.
  • The top one shows, where the pain becomes intolerable.

Sometimes we characterize PT of a person as “high” and “low”.

A person with low threshold level will have discomfort even during little pressure. On contrary, high-level one allows you to overcome intense pain without putting attention to it.


What is responsible for pain reduction?

Frequently, we can help ourselves to sustain pain by using autosuggestion. It is easy to accept pain by changing your thoughts, preparing yourself for what would happen. Let your tears or cry go.

An example from a daily life would be a situation, where you hit your toes by walking into chair legs. You start to scream and use foul language. Such an outbreak of emotions may reconcentrate your attention.

If we talk about relation of pain to BDSM, it is one of the main aspects in most practices. Before you try flogging or clamping techniques, you need to check your Pain Threshold. So use, for example, spanking, before the advanced practices. Remember, the mutual trust between partners is highly required here.

Try to go step by step, increasing the intensity of spanking “upgrading” it into flogging. Make sure Submissive will be physically and mentally stable up to this moment. By the end of the session, you both will be amazed, how far will you have gone.

Sure, someone may advise you to use some medicine or alcohol before session. But they will help you to overcome pain only on the first part of the play. Afterwards, alcohol lowers your PT, so you eventually feel more pain the end of the session.

We don’t suggest you drink joy juice as preparation to the session. If you have this unstable feeling of half-consciousness, caused by alkie or drugs, be careful. Such condition may lead to psychological and health traumas.

Have a drink AFTER the session, in order to relax and let your thoughts go.


How to be more durable?

Most sceptics claim that PT is in our genetics and we can’t change it by force of will. However, BDSM has been destroying this myth for years. The Top border can be changed due to intensity, frequency, or power of pressure.

Nature of Humankind is in adaption to irritants of different kinds. Therefore, if you get used to some practice, you won’t feel pain in it, just pure pleasure.

But don’t make long pauses in your BDSM-life, as it leads to lowering your pain threshold. But our muscles remember everything, so after you get back to practice, you will easily recover, what you’ve lost.

Remember that women have a positive correlation of PT lowering with menstrual cycle. Add here fear or rueful feelings for both genders.

Change it with sexual tension, love, and mutual understanding of an experienced couple, and you will see, how PT is raised.


Instead of conclusion

Don’t try to make a game out of it. It isn’t “Citius, Altius, Fortius!”.

BDSM-practices are meant for pleasure, not for achieving records. Remember of SSC and love each other!
