Sensation Play is essentially playing with sensation and perception, and having a lot of fun in the process! For this post I am going to talk about scarves and Ostrich Feather Body Tickler, and how you can combine them together for lots of naughty fun.
Ok, first the ostrich feathers. They feel light and teasing on the skin, and can tickle and tantalize.
Now, imagine how the same feathers will feel with your eyes closed. It is known that removing one sense enhances the others, so draping a scarf over the eyes can turn an ostrich feather into something much more mysterious and exotic. Where will the feather go next? Lightly drag the silky feather over the object of your desire's skin, the whisper soft touch will ignite nerve endings as it sets the mood for pleasure to come. Then try flicking the Tickler like a crop - sting!... And why that long pause? What is going on...?
Use anticipation by pausing between teases.... sometimes the pauses can be as delicious as the contact, because the mind starts filling in the blanks!
Using anticipation and the fear of the unknown can be a lot of fun, but be careful. Some people don't like being blindfolded, as it means giving up a large amount of control to another. Always respect your partner's limits! Any type of sensation play requires a huge amount of trust, and an honest discussion before about limits is very important. If outright blindfolding is too much, then perhaps draping a scarf across the eyes is ok, or maybe just closing the eyes is just right.
But what about sound? Download some sound effects to your phone (BBC Sound effect Library or real orgasm sounds), or play appropriate music.
Exploring sensation play is a lot of fun, and can open a whole universe of new experiences. With a little preparation and creativity, you can create an experience that will have him (or her) begging for more...
