Knife Play, yes or no?

Love Bites Love Bites
I haven't tried it with any of my partners, but my mom, who is in the lifestyle, taught me about it. I don't know how to ask to bring it into our bedroom scene though. So, I was wondering, what do people think about knife play, and cutting each other/ being cut in the bedroom? I know it takes a ton of trust, but how many people are into cutting or being cut? I can't stand the thought of cutting anyone, but maybe being cut.. Also, knife play, from what I've seen, sounds and looks extremely exciting. So, any thoughts for me on how to bring it up, how to start, and over all opinions?

I don't know much about it, but it's definitely not my thing.

My husband won't cut me on purpose, but we have a compromise that causes him to accidentally cut me sometimes....I wear some old (unwanted, unimportant) clothes, he ties me up, blindfolds me, and slowly cuts my clothes off with a knife, every now and then nicking my skin

Knife play doesn't always involve cutting. Once you cut, you've gotten more into blood-play. That said, you could start gently with knife play, just involving a (Dulled down) knife in your play. (Definitely talk about it, first, though.) For many people, knife play is about the threat of being injured, more than the actual injury. You can create the sensation/illusion of being cut by holding the blade on ice before dragging it across skin as long as the person it's being used on can't see that they haven't actually been cut.

You know, I tried that, and never got the cutting sensation from it. Its something I am interested in, and thank you, I had forgotten the correct term for blood play ^^' But, yeah, I love sensual play and would enjoy it. I just read that you can cut during knife play, so I included it. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion

Knife-play is so high up on my kink list that it's underlined three times and has stars next to it.

Unfortunately, my partner isn't into it.

We've kind of settled on a work-around with the Wartenberg wheel. It's not the exact same sensation and there isn't the feel of edgeplay with it, but it's a good middle ground.

We use knives lots. Sometimes he cuts me, sometimes he doesn't. Usually, when he cuts me, it's more like "scratches". My husband is easily squeemed out by blood. ::sigh::

I only use medical-grade disposable scalpels. I also sterilize the area first and wear nitrile gloves (black, of course). I am never the one being cut, but I will cut other people. I am the scientist, after all. ;3

It's really not my thing, but it's a very popular kink for a reason. The adrenalin, the trust, the sheer lovely pain of it makes for a heady combination.

I'm still kind of scared, but curious about cutting. I'm sure that knife-play itself would be lovely, but I don't know about cutting.

I'm sure you can used sterilized knives, keep them clean, make sure you clean up after, and keep any cuts made clean as well. Bandage, ointment, an a watchful eye. But, knife play is different then blood play.

I found this on a site, and it seemed to sum it up for me, from what I've been told about blood play:
Sex blood freaks are often found in the BDSM subculture, where their specific activities may be referred to as "bloodplay" or "bloodsports". These generally involve BDSM scenes that include bloodletting with razor blades or other implements but the amount of blood involved is almost always very small, and cuts seldom penetrate the dermis of the skin.

Other fetishists practice bloodletting as an expression of trust, intimacy and bonding, apart from specifically erotic aspects. They may become donors for sanguinarians.


For knife play, this page looks interesting:

I've not tried it, but I wouldn't mind having a go at knife play. Not the blood-letting kind, the softer, sensation kind.

OUCH! Did it make you less inclined towards knife play, after that? You should check out the link I posted for schwaltze.

I've never tried knife or blood play, and have never had a partner who was interested in it (that I knew of) either. I'm not sure how I'd respond if I had a partner who did want to play like that.

We've done knife play without any cutting or bloodplay. The first time scared me too much and I didn't really enjoy it. The second time (we've only done it twice) I had a lot more trust in him and felt a lot safer so I enjoyed it a lot more. I think I definitely want to try more of it in the future.

I know some people who engage in safe cutting play, but it isn't for me. Personally, I don't think cutting or blood play would be safe for me, and it doesn't appeal to me.

Now, having a knife as a prop and using the blunt edge appeals to me, but My Man says "Absolutely not!" He won't do it. So, I have to go along with it. A lot of times he knows better than I do about things like this.

Well, maybe you can try to bring it up again. I don't see why you can't do knife play, for sensory purposes. But, that is your relationship, and I don't know anything about it.

We have a D/s relationship. I'm obviously the sub. He knows me better than I know myself, and I do submit to the things he thinks are right. He had a very intense reaction to my asking, so I know it's off the table.

It's OK, though. It wasn't a huge part of what I wanted. More like a "why don't we try this?" kind of thingy. Most of the things I enjoy, we enjoy together and he's willing to indulge my kinky fantasies, as I am willing to indulge him in his kinks.

He has a stake in keeping me emotionally sound, so I know he's doing what's right. Submission is sometimes difficult, but if that's your dynamic there are good reasons to not try to subvert it.

I top from the bottom enough the way it is. Usually in very minor, teasing, bratty ways. This particular thing isn't a huge enough part of what I want to do that. I always have my fantasies.

Oh, alright then Well, I'm glad you seem happy with what relationship you have. I couldn't ever be a sub, nor could I be a dom. I don't understand that relationship, but if you are happy, then have at it Yes, a good relationship has give and take, and I'm glad that you trust him and he looks out for you.

Do you like cutting, or being cut? How does it feel when you do it, emotionally?

Not really my thing. I would try it for a partner, but I wouldn't seek it.

I don't know anything about it, but I'm pretty sure it is not something I would be interested. I'm dangerous with a knife in the kitchen, because I am so clumsy, so I think it would be a terrible idea for me to have sharp objects that close to someone else.
