|05:56 pm - Trancing|
Here's something I've done before to get into a trance, that works pretty well. Not sure how this will work for women (you'll see why in a sec.).
Stand feet shoulder length apart. make sure you have some room, at least three feet all around.
Breathe normally, deeply. You might start with a count.
Now comes the fun part:
With your right hand, connect moderately hard with the left side of your chest. Hard enough to knock some air out. At the same time, with your left hand, connect with the center of your back, a little higher than the ribs.
Reverse the motion, so that you're hitting your right side of your chest with your left hand, and the center of your back with your right hand.
Repeat, as quickly as possible.
One can also do this on thier knees, if that suits you better.
It is, in its own way, like flogging, but it leaves fewer nasty marks.
Do this long enough, and you'll definitely begin to trance out.

Yeah, that's sort of the idea behind bdsm. LOL
*grins* Yeah, but I don't derive any sort of sexual pleasure from it :)
Ahh, but BDSM doesn't always equate sexual pleasure. Many people use the pain to connect with an emotional release and not a sexual one. And, of course, you have religious flogging displayed in many cultures throughout the age and people may consider that a form of BDSM. I know when I'm flogged I can easily go into a trance state and I do use it for religious purposes. Sometimes, which is most of the time with me, BDSM has nothing to do with sex. Either way, I'll pay to see you flog yourself. Hehehe. Sorry, couldn't resist. Something about my icon... ;)

Me neither. I have never been into it for the sexual pleasure. It has always been about the "trance" state, as you call it - either giving it or receiving it. It's why I think of bdsm as modern day shamanism.

A silk tank top is good to wear if you are getting abrasions you *don't* want while flogging. If you're leaving "nasty" marks, you're not doing it right. lol. Sounds like wrapping. Get a shorter cat. 1/2" to 1" Wide, smooth, pliable, leather straps. Suede on bare skin is abrasive after awhile, but plain Elkhide is nice. So is a nice, folded, worn-out, leather belt, just like daddy used to wear...
*snaps out of it*
oh, sorry. Yeah, that sounds like a good way to trance. Um, yeah. Or you could just spin around in an office chair with your head tilted back. (have a spotter for that one) lol. Ok, I know, I know. It's Friday. sorry.
Aw, but thw wrapping is where you get the really good lashes.
Flogging is excellent for religious use. I use it for that when I'm shifting paradigms sometimes.
But it's just boring when done in conjunction with sex acts. And distracting. And it feels almost childish.
But then, if people enjoy that sort of thing, then I say: "Do it more often, and however you enjoy it best!"

did I mention sex anywhere in my comment?
lol. Always with the sex, what? I'm a sex object or something? Oh, wait, it's America, and I'm female...
