What is your opinion on knife play?

I just heard about this yesterday. It’s a BDSM idea. It’s where the dominant traces the sub’s skin with a knife. They, of course, do not actually cut them with the knife. I’m not sure how I feel about this one. It’s a way to create suspense. What is your opinion on this?

  • Much like the previous question about sad-masochism, I think it's about eliciting the adrenaline/sympathetic nervous system response. Depending on how the sub feels about knives, this could be more or less exciting. I know some people who are extremely afraid of knives, so this could be either very stimulating or perhaps even overly stimulating.

    Obviously, safety is a critical concern. Even if your intent is to never cut someone, if you are including a knife in your play, there is a possibility of error. I think it's a bit too dangerous, and not a good risk-vs-gain balance. Of course, that all depends on the "gain" the sub gets out of it, in terms of excitement. If she is really into it, or getting a lot of excitement, then it might make it worth the risk.

    I already incorporate shibari into play, which has some associated circulation risks. But I'm very attentive and aware, and use shibari more for aesthetic appeal than restricting movement.

  • I own some knife trainers - they're made by the same people who make real knives, and even start with the same blade blanks, but they aren't sharpened, and as the name implies, they're designed for knife fighting training without being overly dangerous.

    I bought these for their intended purpose originally, but they also double quite nicely for safe "knife play" in the BDSM world, especially when coupled with a blindfold.

  • I've used a specialized butter knife, basically an elongated, flat spoon, before, but not an actual knife. It is very dangerous to use a real one, especially if it's dull.

    My boyfriend at the time & I used our "knife" in combination with a blindfold, restraints & ice water to help enhance my temperature kink, as ice directly to the skin is not a good idea.

  • Not really high up on my list of things to try, really.

  • I think it's retarded. Why not just elevate it and juggle some grenades?

  • I have gone my entire life trying to AVOID getting stabbed. I have no intention of changing that now.

  • I think it's a trust play so it can be exciting but u really have to be fully submissive and trusting all the way

  • Knife play proper does involve cutting

    i posted something on this the other day.

    even tracing with a knife can be risky.

    there are specific areas to avoid.

    you also always need a bleed kit, and someone that understands first aid, direct pressure etc.

    as per last post on this link below

  • For me, there is no need to go into things that are that risky. I would go for feathers, body-paint, wax, or something you plan on using later on me that doesn't actually produces wounds LOL.

  • Body painting is the way to go it's ten times hotter

  • I dated a woman who was an expert in that. Extremely erotic if done by the right person. She just touched the points to my nipples and I almost came. Then when she traced "property of..." on my erection I did. If course she teased me for two hours with them before it got to that point. so I lost the bet and had to give her head for 12 straight hours. Or rather I got to give her head for 12 straight hours. I could never figure out how she considered that punishment.

  • Sounds way too intense for me!

  • truer love

  • Some people are into it, it's a hard limit for me.

  • Stupid and dangerous, that's my opinion. People need protecting from themselves sometimes 🤦‍♂️

  • If a girl wanted to try it I'd be okay with it. a lot of girls do seem to like being a rope bunny and if something happened you need to be able to use a knife to cut them loose. As long as you both have trust in each other it's good fun as long as it's not a machete 😳

  • If try it

  • I've never done anything like that. It's sounds like it could be a big turn on with a partner you implicitly trust.

  • Couldn't do that. I don't like knives at all.

  • No way

  • I'll pass...

  • hmm... that's somewhat dangerous.
    Just like choke/asphyxiation plays.

    So I wouldn't wanna be that guy calling police cuz my sub died on me.

  • You're playing with fire. Be careful, the innocent play of BDSM can get very dark very fast. A little tying, a little smacking can be fun, but knife play? Not a fan of bringing deadly weapons in the bedroom. Do some candle wax on the nipples or something, don't start with knives. Marquise De Sade was a bad cruel man who did unimaginable things. His world was very dark, sinister and evil. Keep it at arms length.

    • Sadism in BDSM, actually everything in BDSM is 100% consentual, otherwise it's abuse. The Marquis de Sade didn't care about consent. That's what made it evil.

    • @jerdanro The point was to make the link between sadism and the person it is named after, to emphasize the darkness of it all. A little play is fine, sadism can get very dark very fast.

    • I'm just saying inthe bdsm community the term sadism isn't used that way. Although I'm uncomfortable with the term myself.

  • You went from love-struck sweetheart to scary in a week.
    What the hell happened?

    • I didn’t say I liked it!! I’m wanting everyone’s thoughts!

    • dude the girl is gonna put you in the hospital lol
