Into bastinado and foot whipping?

Love feet so much you want to whip them?

Canes are both feared and loved by many bottoms and subs, but if you want to get mean, you'll want to check out some foot whipping bastinado action! Thought to have its origins in Eastern and Middle Eastern countries, the bastinado meaning comes from the Spanish word 'Bastonada' which means a blow with a cudgel or a stick—used explicitly as punishment through history, where you hit a person's soles with a cane, a switch or sometimes a flogger. It's a fetish enjoyed by those who love pain, generically known as foot whipping, as the impact is focused intensely in one place. It also doesn't leave marks, and a person can walk normally afterwards.

What does bastinado mean?

The meaning of bastinado is 'beaten with a stick' but has a more specific use in the fetish world. It is a particular kind of beating, often with a cane, on the soles of the feet.

Do foot whipping and bastinado mean the same?

Foot whipping is a more generic term for bastinado, so they are the same thing just said in different ways.

Is bastinado safe?

As long as you practise in a RACK (Risk Aware Consensual Kink) manner, bastinado can be relatively safe. It's essential only to hit the very middle of the foot and avoid the heel and toes that are easier to damage. However, bastinado is designed to inflict a lot of pain without much damage, marks disappear very quickly, making it a favourite with masochists.

Can the feet withstand a bastinado beating?

Yes, even a hard beating to the soles is absorbed by the foot's firm skin which is made to withstand walking pressure. You might have a little marking from a foot whipping, but it will go quickly, and your feet might be a little tender, but walking won't be a problem if the beating was given appropriately.

    Foot fetishes are actually very common, and are amongst the most frequently mentioned fetishes in popular media. The feet are a body part sometimes associated with smell and unattractiveness, which gets some people's taboo centres working. They're also erogenous zones for many, particularly as most people aren't that used to having them touched. Boots, heels and other footwear are precisely the kind of sexualised accessories so many people fall for, meaning that the feet inside them can also end up as the object of someone's desire. There are tonnes of feet videos and feet pictures online for those who can't get enough of pretty feet. If you have a foot fetish, you might find that you're especially drawn to a certain kind of foot: large feet, small feet, ones in see-through shoes or bare feet.
    In the words of the immortal Rihanna, "sticks and stones may break my bones - but chains and whips excite me". Whipping isn't quite as common a BDSM practice as the uninitiated might imagine (whips are unwieldy implements and difficult to use well; crops, canes, paddles and floggers are all far more usual) but it definitely has its fans. Bullwhips are occasionally to be seen in fetish clubs, and masochists who enjoy sharp sting-type pains are likely to have fun at the end of them. Enjoy the cracking noise when you hear it--it's a sign that you're breaking the sound barrier!
    Submissives get off on giving away their control over themselves: on being directed and compelled, on following orders and losing agency. Some like to do this through bondage and physical restriction; some by feeling psychologically subservient to a dominant partner; some through pain play. Many like a combination of these things. The key to figuring out a fantastic D/s dynamic is communication--make sure both sides of the equation are getting what they want and what they need, and that everyone is well aware of safewords and limits. Some people enjoy having dominance and submission as part of their everyday relationship, while others prefer keeping it in the bedroom. Either of these kink styles is fine - just so long as everyone is on the same page.
