Edge Play

Edge Play

Our Definition

BDSM acts that are considered particularly intense or dangerous, such as breath play.

Common Practices & Experiences 

Everyone is different! You'll see this repeated throughout our website and glossary. Common practices and experiences involving edge play include, but certainly aren't limited to:
  • Variation between individuals, (ie, some people will consider a specific activity to be edge play, others will have had enough experience with that specific play that they do not consider it edge play) 
  • A high degree of care towards learning specific skills needed.
  • Attention to precautions and plans for safety in case of accident or emergencies. 
  • Lengthy and involved discussions when approaching a new kind of play or a potential new partner. 
Louisa likes it when her partner beats her with a two handed ball-mace, which is a heavy melee weapon and could injure someone seriously if handled improperly. 
Harry enjoys blood play, but only with one partner who has medical training.
