Kink of the Week March 1-16: Edging
Edging is the practice of maintaining a high level of sexual arousal over an extended period of time without reaching orgasm. It can be something that can be done alone or with a partner. Many people report that their orgasms are ‘bigger’ or more intense after a period of edging.
So what about you and edging. Is it something you do when you masturbate? Do you like riding the edge between arousal and orgasm? Do you find it has an effect on your orgasm? What is the longest period of time that you have edged for?
Is edging something part of your relationship? Maybe it is something that is part of your power dynamic. Are you the person who is doing the edging or are you the one in control? Whatever your role is what about that works for you? Alternatively maybe it is just something you like to do with your partner but it is not part of a D/s or power exchange relationship.
And what does your edging look like? Is it purely masturbatory? Do you use sex toys to help you achieve arousal? Maybe your partner uses a sex toy on you? Have you sometimes reached orgasm ‘by mistake’?
These questions are really just thoughts around this subject to inspire your writing. You can use them or not, that is completely up to you.
There is no right or wrong way to do Kink of the Week. You can write personal essays, thoughts and experiences, poetry, fiction, or even just post an image that is inspired by the prompt. You can even write about why a certain subject does not work for you or even squicks you out, the only thing I ask you not to do is to yuck other peoples yum. It is fine to say, I don’t like this kink because….. but it is not OK to say, and people who do like it are bad/disgusting/wrong etc. Always try to stick to the ‘You Kink Is Not My Kink But Your Kink Is OK’ when writing for Kink of the Week.
