Cock & Ball Torture - Trick or Treat?

Cock and ball torture, more commonly known as CBT, is a type of kink that involves inflicting pain upon the penis and/or testicles.

There are many ways to play, however, the common themes usually revolve around pain and power exchange. The “torture” that is delivered all depends on how you want to play but can range from mild discomfort to extreme pain - which is why it’s important to do your research before breaking out all of the CBT tools!

Pain & Pleasure

For some penis owners, the very thought of a slap, clamp, etc. on their member would make them want to cringe or run away, but for others, the idea is extremely erotic. Here are some of the many reasons why CBT is becoming an increasingly popular activity.

  • Endorphins. During CBT play, the body releases its natural painkillers; endorphins. The effect produced by endorphins can often mimic that of a “natural high”. Some bottoms and/or masochists often refer to this euphoric state as subspace.

  • Control. As with many other BDSM activities, the power exchange includes either taking over or giving up the control. With CBT, the person with the penis is giving up control of one of their most intimate body parts to receive pleasure in the pain.

  • Sensitivity. CBT play increases the blood flow to the penis, even more so than with natural erections. This then makes it even more engorged, and therefore all the more sensitive to any kind of stimulation; licks, pricks, slaps, etc.!

  • The Masochistic Thrill. As with many Dominant & Submissive activities, the submissive (and usually but not always, masochistic) partner often feels a sense of accomplishment and/or pride when seeing their dominant pleased by their actions and how they performed for them.

Ways to Play!

As mentioned previously, there are so many ways to engage in cock & ball torture, and it all depends on what was consensually discussed beforehand.

Here are some of the most common types of CBT play!

Stretching

This includes stretching of the skin - often the scrotum and/or testicles - down and away from the body in a certain way.

Squeezing/"Crushing"

Just as it sounds, ball crushing/squeezing refers to putting extreme pressure on the testicles. A device or toy (such as a vice, clamps, or a ball stretcher) can be used to do this, or it can be done manually with hands, by stepping on them, etc.

Bondage

Genital bondage involves binding the penis and/or testicles so that it is confined in a certain way. There are several different ways to play with bondage including cock cages, chastity cages, cuffs, rope, and more.

Just as there are many different ways to play, the desired outcome of genital bondage could be different for each player. Whereas a penis owner being bound could enjoy the uncomfortable sensation of transitioning from soft to erect, the person performing the bondage could instead be pleased by the aesthetic view of the penis intertwined with rope.

Sensory/Impact

Impact play is a type of sensory play that can be a little more intense as it involves striking a playmate and/or being struck. This can be done manually with hands (i.e. spanking) or with other types of impact tools (crops, floggers, etc).

Other common forms of sensory play include; temperature play, wax play, electrostimulation, etc.
