Things you need to know before you get into Needle Play BDSM

Before you start playing with your piercings, it’s a good idea to become acquainted with your tools. Consider attending a course or class, or you can even ask your local piercer for advice on how to place the needles or ask someone in the community to show you in person.

What is Needle Play?

Needle play, in short, is a game where you use medical needles to penetrate the skin of someone else. Some refer to it as recreational acupuncture or play piercing. People who use needle play are doing it for amusement and excitement. For some, it’s scary or creepy, but if you do it properly, it can be pleasurable and exhilarating. 

Safety Tips

Safety kit is a must in needle play

When you first start out in the needle game, safety is the most crucial factor to consider. Before you and your partner begin, you should discuss the possibility of transmitting diseases, such as LVH or AIDS, through blood and during the play, among others. This is less of an issue if you are already “blood-bonded.” Prepare for the scene by having certain items on hand to ensure their safety, such as disinfectants, a sharps disposal container, fine gauge needles in sterile packaging, gloves to protect the hands from bodily fluids, and gauze to clean excess blood. Use skin disinfectants that will not irritate either of you, such as alcohol wipes and iodine swabs.

Only use medical needles because they are steralized and safe.

Medical Needals are: 

  • Sharp 
  • Sturdy
  • Sterile packaged
  • Available in various sizes

Keep in mind when it comes to needles the higher the gauge the more fine/smaller the needle. Start with some small your first go. I’d recommend 28g and work your way up.

Placing the Needles

The larger gauge needles are typically excellent, with sizes ranging from 20g to 27g; the higher the number, the progressively thinner the needles, as previously described. They are effortless to insert and can be placed on the skin’s surface with little or no pain. Because you can use the base to put pressure on the needle to pierce the skin, the needles of base hypodermic syringes are even more accessible to insert than traditional piercing needles. Be aware that very fine needles can be difficult to handle and bend when pressure is applied. When inserting needles into the skin, back, or chest, use a slightly heavier gauge between 20g and 22g.

Pinch the skin

Examine each needle before using it to see if it has any flaws, such as being bent, and discard any that are imperfect in a sharps disposal. When you’re ready to insert them, you might want to grab the skin in some way to help you place the needles horizontally to the body. Tip: Pinch the skin when you’re new; it gives you more surface area to pierce without injuring the muscle beneath. Place the needles at no more than a 15-degree angle. When inserting the needles, make sure the bevel on the tip is facing up so that they pass through the skin as smoothly as possible. When making deeper insertions, ask your partner to put on a dental bib because some blood may fall, and you won’t be able to collect it with gauze.

If you are concerned about pricking yourself while inserting the needles through the gloves, you can use a thimble or a cork to receive the needle that passes through the skin. If your gloves become punctured, remove them, disinfect your hands, and replace them. Before removing the needles, you should also put on new ones. Needles should always be disposed of in a disposer at the same time they are removed.

Where Should You Put the Needles?

When it comes to Play Piercing, the most common areas of the body you can place the needles are the chest, abdomen, back, buttocks, and genitals.
Play piercing on most of your skin (excluding your genitals, nipples, lips, or other extra sensitive spots) does not hurt at all. You can put them on almost any part of the body as long as you don’t get too close to the eye area, which is the most erogenous.

If you’re making a design with piercing needles, such as a spiral or zipper, work from top to bottom across the area where you’ll be putting the needles to avoid snagging or pinching yourself with one.

If any of the needles leak blood, gently wipe it with gauze and dispose of it in an appropriate container.

You can place the needles side by side anywhere on the body. You can also make crossed designs, such as a button, by placing one needle under the other.
There’s no limit to where you can place the needles to make designs!

Tip: To get an added sensation, try putting ice on the needles for a tickling sensation. Add electro stimulation machine or a vibrator for for added stimulation

When done correctly, you get the most painful pleasure with little to no harm.

Remove the Needles CAREFULLY

The needle game does not end until you have removed all of the needles from yourself and/or your partner and properly disposed of them.

To soften the dried blood and keep the skin and puncture wounds clean, put on a clean pair of gloves and place gauze pads in alcohol over the needles.
Before removing the needles, gently but firmly press down on all alcohol-soaked pads to firm the skin. (The exception is when performing a more advanced technique known as “needle zipper,” which you remove the needles one by one.)

When removing the needle, it is critical not to press too hard on the needle. Pressing hard on the needle may have its edge cut the skin on its way out. To avoid this, remove the needles parallel to the skin.
After removing the needle, gently press the area with alcohol-soaked gauze to stop the bleeding, reduce swelling, and reduce the possibility of bruising. Immediately after, dispose of the needles you have removed.
Repeat the procedure with the remaining needles.

Considerations

Needle play is a fun a quick way to get pain/pleasure. You will get excitement from the flight or fight response your (or your partner’s) body provides. But, it is essential to be aware of the damage you are doing to your body or to someone else’s body. It means you need to know what you are doing and keep the damage to a minimum.
