What are the Welts in BDSM? Are they a very special fetish or taboo?

After another SM-session your body is covered with wounds and signs of active sexual life. Some couples definitely love the look of Submissive’s body, red and wet from intense play. Flogging, roping, needling, and other types of physical influence bring various “paintings” on the canvas of your Bottom’s body.

It is a fetish that delivers pleasure to both sides.

Some BDSM-adepts consider Welts a strict taboo. Due to the social background or the specifics of work they try to avoid such results.

Let’s look at the ways to make Welts and their types.

Ropes

Bondage and Shibari use ropes for fixation, which inevitably leave marks on skin. They can remain on the body for several hours or even days. In most cases, it stays there for 3-6 hours. It depends on the skin type, the period of time it is used, and the pressure it does.

It is essential to follow SSC axiom and not to hurt more than it is needed for practice.

In some cases, ropes leave burns. They appear, if you put a knot quickly and then pull it. These wound cause much more pain and it takes a week for skin to recover.

We suggest you buy natural fiber materials instead of synthetic ones, as the latter will require more time for skin to regenerate.

Devices for hitting

Flogging is the most popular type of interaction in BDSM and the welts you can find here are like snowflakes. You can’t find similar ones. They depend on devices, skin type, and the intensity of the play.

The reaction to hitting may be different. From little blush to blood lakes, or even something worse.

Sometimes, long session may lead to appearing of scars for the rest of your life.

Sure, before you decide to take device in hand and use it on your Submissive, understand, how you will do it. Try it out on pillows or something soft.

You must take in mind the following characteristics: strength, speed and the angle of shock. Don’t use overlaps.

Before the game begins, warm up your Bottom. Use some soft devices like flogger for this purpose. Adjust intensity with each hit or minute. When capillary elasticity is restored, you can use more hardcore devices like whip.

If the main idea is to leave more “reminders”, don’t do the warm up. They won’t go away so easily.

In case Welts are taboo, but you want to do flogging, put wet cloth on Sub’s skin. You can use water or saline. This way there will only be sensations to remain after the session.

If Top was overzealous and made unwanted signs of play, use special moistures to boost skin regeneration process. Do it as fast as possible.

Shackles and bonds

Steel bondage has one characteristic that may either bring your attention to it, or make you forget about practices with it. It leaves some very special marks.

Bottom can’t feel the pressure during the session, so the surprise awaits her afterwards.

If you didn’t make it taboo, that’s good. Otherwise use pieces of cloth, leather, or just a towel. It will decrease pressure, so the chains will leave no marks.

Wax and fire

Wax-play is a common practice in BDSM. At first view, it may look like painless thing, but it may leave boils and even scars, if the Top has no prior experience in this question.

It depends mostly on the skin type of Bottom and chemical composition of candle. Experienced Master will leave small red marks that will disappear in a few hours.

In order to avoid making boils, try it on yourself. If the melting temperature is high, you can raise the candle above Sub’s body slightly above. This way the drops will lose several degrees during the flight.

Fireplay requires much more attention and cautiousness. Always start with deliquate stimulus. Examine, how the skin of your partner reacts to it. Don’t use this practice, unless you are an experienced Top. Remember that playing with fire leads to some terrible consequences.

Boils are the most painful marks. Recovery time is painful and long-lasting.

Practices with cigarettes are dangerous too. Don’t start your BDSM-path with these games.

Cutting, scalpels, needles, and needles with blood

The practices mentioned above are the most wicked and traumatizing. The marks after these methods are inevitable.

Results of needle play and small scratches are going to last 2-3 days. If we talk about severe impact may leave some serious welts. For example, the paintings on human body done with scalpel or a knife will remain for 2-3 weeks. Narrow scars are expected to be with you for a whole life.

Don’t use these practices, unless you have medical education or have concrete knowledge basis.

You can find seminars regarding these topics in BDSM-communities in your city or on the Internet.

Flogging without welts is for kids

You may hear such thesis in your BDSM-club or on the specialized forum. But these people don’t care about the reasons Bottom doesn’t want to have marks. So what now? Do we need to stop practicing?

A person must decide for oneself, what is the most important aspect of BDSM for him?

Marks aren’t a-must rule for every session. You can minimize the negative outcomes, and try as many practices as you want.

Although you should take human factor into account (wrong move or angle), the outcomes will always be minimal.

Why do people love scars?

Fetish

Both Tops and Bottoms love this fetish. Watching the canvas of human body painted in colours and scars is a breathtaking experience for many of us. Living through the memories over and over again.

Sign of possession

Similar to collar, temporary signs remind Bottom of his status. It also indicates, who does he belong to.

In the same time, Master gets satisfaction, while looking at his Submissive’s self-devotion and love. Besides, the feeling of responsibility for his Bot awakens in him.

Cure

There are many ointments and creams to cure the Welts. Read all information regarding the chosen medicine (allergy, side effects, and etc.). The best option is to consult a doctor.

Feast eyes on

Sessions don’t last long. Emotions and feelings go away, but there is a thing that remains for a bit longer, than powerful sensations. We talk about marks and scars. As they are catalyzers for diving into the sea of memories.

You can brag about them in BDSM-community, if it doesn’t go against Top’s interests.

Some people make albums full of pictures of scars and welts.

Don’t show it in public

Some habits of BDSM-couple may be a horrifying experience for vanilla couple. Maybe some of your friends got used to your way of life, but it doesn’t mean that whole society accepts us. Someone may even call the police to tell about “domestic violence” you have. Therefore, think before boasting.

Everything in our lives depends on us. It is for you and your partner to decide, whether you need Welts or not.

The most important thing is to love a person next to you and follow SSC rules.
