I wonder if submissives can comment on this post for me. As always I am keen to continue to learn.
I will present as a primary example my nettle blanket use, as it has come in for so much use this summer! I believe that a submissive is more affected when certain tortures are very keenly focused on a particular body part rather than be generally struck over many body parts at the same time. The difference between a scalpel and a spade or the difference between a sniper rifle and a shotgun.
For example I use the nettle blanket when applying stinging nettles to bitch-boy’s clitty so the stings are exclusively on his clitty. Not his stomach or thighs, just his clitty. He seems very affected by this. There seem to be more Dommes online using nettles in photos and videos lately, which I welcome, but I notice they almost always use a very large bunch of nettles and as well as the male’s clitty getting a few stings, his thighs and belly are inundated with stings.
I would think surely this would reduce the impact of the stings to the clitty and so be less scary and affecting?
I also use the nettle blanket when applying my mini whips to his clitty. Again his stomach and thighs are protected and all the pain is felt in his clitty. Is this more affecting than if his stomach and thighs were also being whipped at the same time? I have to say bitch-boy’s reactions in each scenario suggest my theory is correct. Do other subs agree?
