What does breath play feel like?

I love checking the stats on my website. I love statistics. Don’t get me going on Google Analyzer. While I was checking numbers I noticed someone found my blog with the question of, “What does breath play feel like?” and it got me thinking. I saved the question because I wanted to write about it.

A few years ago I had a small piece about breath play with informative links, but it grew old and needed to be rewritten. So, I took it down.

At first when I read the question I was turned on, inspired and now I’m here writing about something that seems very mainstream in porn. But, years ago it wasn’t, it was a taboo subject and I wrote about it often.

What does breath play feel like?

To me, it’s heaven. Hands wrapping around my throat or covering my nose and mouth; it shuts out all the chatter in my brain. It’s this ritual. My eyes flutter and I focus on what’s happening to me to the finest detail. My cunt will constrict and yet I’m gushing from an orgasm. My body will grow rigid and then melt. My head will grow dizzy and there are times when I will grow limp and nearly pass out.

There is this high and slight panic when it first happens. Your body wants to react as a victim to a violent act but once that is pushed away it’s highly erotic. I have always enjoyed a sense of danger with my sex. It make the heart pump faster and harder and it’s a huge rush when I orgasm.

I’ve had sessions of just laying between Clark’s legs and he would simply cover my mouth and nose for various periods of times. I would come over and over. No other stimulation was involved except for restricting the air to my lungs.

I have had scarves wrapped around my neck and I have found those to be safer all though one time it did leave a bruise across the front of my neck. I have choked myself with a scarf during masturbation as well. With this particular method it is cutting off the blood flow to the brain and this is very dangerous. I have never passed out from it because we stop before it gets to that point but the high is addictive.

I notice when I am near orgasm that I will stop breathing. It’s the small moment of what I like to think, “I’m seeing God.” I have had some very out of body experiences with the act. It’s truly freeing to me.

Yes, it takes trust. Yes, this is very dangerous. Yes, you need to know what you are doing. You could end up with your precious neck snapped if you or your partner is not careful.

As a note of caution, please do your research before embarking on something new and dangerous, I have listed some links below:

Tell me something

This would typically be type of play I wouldn’t even consider–after all I grew up in the age of the passing of Michael Hutchence and it became of huge social sad and an a unfortunate source of humor. But now I do allow my partner to place his hands on my throat because he likes it and therefore, it gets me off. That’s probably as far as I’ll go but it’s good to put out resources if said person wanted to try.

Yes, I listed resources at the bottom of the post. I couldn’t do it without proper resources.
I too, was doing this before the passing of Michael H. and even David K. It’s dangerous but being smart about it keeps you alive.

I experienced breath play for the first time last year with my then master. It was amazing, truly. I trusted him and he knew what he was doing. He had experience and had done the research. It is an addictive high, that floating feeling you get once the blood rushes back in. Wow.

Mina, I think I remember reading about that on your blog. It really is an amazing experience when you can trust someone with your life and body in their hands. It’s very freeing.
