Thoughts on the punishment – Part 1 – Ginger Figging

ginger-plugI have so much to write about last night’s punishment that instead of trying to do one of my epic posts and it taking so long that I don’t post anything for the next three weeks, I’m going to try the mad notion of breaking things up into more manageable posts – crazy talk, I know!

I have so many emotions that I’ll start off with something more simple and basic: facts and thoughts about the new type of ginger butt-plug I made.

It was not an unmitigated success, but it did have a huge successful point in that we were a lot less concerned that we were going to loose the fig inside me, never to see it again. (As happened on Kink.com a while ago!)

However, I am used to carving ginger plugs with one notched area to simulate a butt-plug – and didn’t think about the fact that this time the notched area, which is usually where the sphincter ani internus (internal anal sphincter muscle) grabs aholt of the notch in the ginger, to keep it from sucking on in, or spitting it out (And the fact that I never trusted it for the former, and it didn’t work so great for the latter is why we were trying new methods!), was used by the flange from the cut-down butt-plug, and so the big fail was that I did not make the notched area longer nor make a second notched area….

So my bottom spent the whole punishment happily trying to spit that mean old ginger root right out! (I am pretty sure that actually ginger causes the anus to spasm and expel the burning foreign object from your bottom. I get why it would try to do this, but it’s something that needs to be worked around, because figging is the best punishment in the world. More on that later.)

I’m happy to say that the one worry I had, that the plastic flange would break the ginger did not happen, although this was a thick, tough old root. (We did the world a favour by stuffing it up my bum instead of leaving it for someone to try and cook with!) I should add that because this root was pretty old, it was stringy, which was probably good for tensile strength, but also meant it was very, very strong, intensity-wise.

Mr Defeu did not have it more than one-third up my bottom before the stinging began. I knew I was in serious trouble at that point!

To sum up on the actual fig-plug: yes, cutting the flange off a butt-plug works well, and at least on thicker ginger-roots, does not break it at the notch you have to cut in to hold it there. However, that notch either needs to be lengthened to give the anus room to grab on, as well, or a second notch needs to be put on. Unsure yet which will disturb structural integrity more. I will report back after the next punishment or discipline session in which ginger is used. (I hope soon!)

Okay, more about the experience of the ginger tomorrow!


In the meantime, I just found this blog, and loved the discussion of real punishment and the emotional journey it entails: Bonnie-Jo — Life of a College Spanko

    Yes, the ginger thing is lovely. I shouldn’t long for it, I shouldn’t. It always is much worse than the lovely thing I think it will be.

    I guess it’s just one of those days.

    Ginger is strictly a pseudo-punishment for me because there’s just no way it acts like a deterrent. ::grin::
    Though, um, I have noticed now that I’ve got problems with, um…::cough:: hemorrhoids ::cough:: I do think twice before hoping I get an email ordering me to have a peeled ginger plug near my bed when he calls. But invariably I’m still happy to get such an email. 😀
    Would I be truly wicked to suggest using minty toothpaste as a sort of lubricant with your ginger plug? ::evil grin::
    Waiting for the next installment!
    As for the falange issue, I usually just get a big hunk with a hefty “finger,” the hunk/trunk acting as the falange and the finger acting as the shaft (often pared down a bit – which just adds more of that deliciously glowing juice!).

    Natty,
    Ginger is a punishment for me in that during when it happens, it hurts enough that I wish it was not happening. That’s the definition of punishment for us … because we are both kinked to be around by such things, so no matter how much I may hate it when it’s going on, the rest of the time I’ll be fantasizing about it!
    And, sure, go on and suggest using minty toothpaste as lube. For yourself, that is! (Seriously, we like to use ginger because the burning can be made to STOP the minute you take the fig-plug out. You can’t say that with toothpaste!)
    We had always just gotten the big hunk of ginger and cut it down. And indeed, did that in this case. We just added the flange as we are trying to perfect it, and we’ve always been a little worried that it will just break, as ginger is quite easy to snap in half!

    Ginger figgin huh? Not heard of this one until I read this post. I was reading an article the other day about jalapeno chilli pepper fetish. People were getting these red hot littles fellas, slicing them length ways and inserting them up their sphincters. The thought of this gives me a serious twinge in my doodah as it would be the ultimate in being controlled. But to actually practice it? Hmmm perhaps not. I’ll leave that to the real hard BDSM nutz. :o)

    Glad for you, sorry for me, after a couple of weeks playing with ginger more than once a day, anal and pennis, I have come to the conclution that we end up getting used to it. The burning feeling is not the same any more, I have “tasted” its juice as well, injekting in urethra and other “places”, it used to burn like hell, now it is just a soft play for me.
    Well at least I know deeply the sensations and effects and can include it in my TOP play, as for I am a Dom who likes to try himself before “torturing” others.
    See ya and thanks for the post
