BDSM Fire Play | Explained

‘Don’t play with fire unless you are ready to get burned’ – a saying you must remember when jumping into fire play.

In the BDSM world, fire play covers a sexual play that includes burning fire directly on or near a person’s skin. Some individuals find this ritual highly exciting as it involves placing burning candles, matches, or other similar flammable items extremely close to a person’s skin.

A fire play may also include applying alcohol on the skin and lighting it, tapping a part of the skin with a torch, or sexual beating with a burning belt or flogger.

Fire Play | Safety Precautions 

A BDSM fire play is a type of super edge performance. You must exercise extreme caution and follow pre-agreed rules when taking part in a fire play. It’s imperative that the couple performing the activity don’t place flames and fire close to hair or clothing. Special equipment and supplies such as fire extinguishers and fire blankets should be available if needed. 

Setting the Scene

The couple or the group of people who want to engage in a fire play should name a leader in the game. That person must be well-educated or highly experienced in performing such a play. 

The most sophisticated fire plays boil down to spotless organization. The fire play participants should check for flammable items that need to be cleared from the room where the fire play will take place.

A typical fire play may include the following items:

  • Surgical scissors,
  • Steel bowl,
  • 2-4 inch gauze squares,
  • Bottle of 70% isopropyl alcohol,
  • Bowl of cool water + cloth dipped in it,
  • Candles,
  • Plain butane cigarette lighter,
  • First aid kit,
  • Fire extinguisher.

The fire play ritual usually starts with taking the clothes off. Then, the participants look at each other’s naked bodies and get used to the sight. Next, the guide starts pouring the alcohol into a special bowl in order to dip a gauze square in it. The following step involves rubbing a tiny layer of alcohol over the hairless skin of their naked partner/partners. In the next step, they light a fire with a candle or cigarette lighter, and WHOOSH – flaming magic. 

At this point, the adrenaline shoots up to the highest level, and at the same moment, the guide places a wet cloth to cool the skin off. Even though the place is cooled off, the participants’ bodies are hot (and horny), waiting for the wildest sex ever. To make the fire play even more interesting, switching between hot and cold play is recommended.

Some people prefer a lighter version of the fire play, one where they are less exposed to danger. These couples enjoy the burning sensations from the melting candle, making them feel ready for the big match that follows!

The most important thing that people need to remember if they want to feel an absolute memorable pleasure is to remain relaxed during the entire process and breathe slowly.

Participants need to be sure that they genuinely want to try this adrenaline-boosting activity and are ready and aware of any potential consequences, including scars or becoming addicted to the excitement it brings. Good luck and enjoy the excitement!
