Impact play has always gotten a bad rap because it is often associated with abusive partners or abusive relationships; many people don’t understand sadomasochism or that you don’t have to be a sadist or masochist to enjoy a good spanking.

What is impact play?

Impact play forms part of sexual practices or scenes that fall under the BDSM umbrella. Impact play is where one partner will strike another partner for sexual gratification. Canning, flogging, cropping, paddling, spanking, and whipping are all different types of impact play that you can include in your sessions.

Impact play is consensual and something that both partners have agreed to and enjoy. As with all BDSM practices, consent is crucial, as is the negotiating process before a scene; you need to understand your partner’s soft and hard limits. There MUST be a safeword in play during the scene as your partner’s safety, and well-being is of utmost importance.

Impact play is something that sadomasochists enjoy; a sadist derives pleasure from inflicting pain on their partner, whereas a masochist enjoys receiving pain.

Impact play does not have to involve pain; it could form part of sensation play where your partner taps you lightly with the tip of a flogger on your breasts, inner thighs, buttocks, or genitals. The quick flick will increase blood flood to this area, increasing sexual arousal.

Impact play could also form part of your punishment or funishment; punishment spankings or floggings are necessary if you have broken the rules or failed to complete your tasks. Funishment is a more playful punishment that Brats will often enjoy to reign them in again.

Humiliation play could have elements of impact play form part of the scene too, where being slapped, punched, or kicked has a humiliating effect on your partner. If you are slapping, punching, or kicking your partner, it is essential to do the proper research beforehand and start off slowly. You can cause severe injury or damage to your partner if your target the wrong areas.

Impact play can be great fun as long as both partners enjoy it and have consented to it prior to play, do not participate in kinks you don’t enjoy, or get off on. Aftercare is essential with all types of play, but extra aftercare might be needed after impact play as there might be welts, bruising, or some blood. So special attention and care needs to be given to these areas, and you can apply lotion or a soothing gel to minimize the bruising and welts.

Dom/me’s need to check in regularly with their partners after the scene to make sure that they are doing well and try to help their submissive avoid subdrop if possible.
