Fed up with punishing your sub/slave with a simple whipping? Let’s spice things up a bit, in every sense of the word. Next time you're at the supermarket, pick up some ginger and try the ancient erotic art of figging. We show you all you need to know...

First used in ancient Greece, then in Roman times and latterly in Victorian times, figging is a great method of BDSM play, and you don’t have to be vegan to participate. Originally, figging was used to punish mainly female slaves: a peeled piece of ginger root is inserted into the anus or vagina, (it’s more difficult for your sub to expel it from the vagina).

The effects are strong but short-lived. He/she will feel a burning sensation increasing in intensity for about 20 minutes and then rapidly wearing off, which is due to the depletion of the natural oils in the ginger root. No lasting harm is done by figging, and it’ll definitely have the desired effect.
 

What’s the easiest figging method?

Get the largest piece of ginger you can (it’s called a hand and broadly resembles one). Use a vegetable peeler or knife to carve it into the shape of a butt plug about 10cm by 3cm. Then make sure you carve a shallow groove towards the base to aid retention in the anus and shape the tip into a smooth curve for ease of insertion. Now, you’re ready to go.

Restrain your sub; bottom up is a good idea. Perhaps peel your ginger in the same room, that way the aroma will drift over to them, and they can anticipate what’s to come. Don’t use any lubricant or cream as it prevents the oils in the ginger coming into contact with the skin. Just wet the root with water. Insert into either or both of the appropriate orifices. Sit back and regard your work.

After about five minutes they’ll be writhing around, after 20, remove the ginger. If you’re going to torture them for longer, simply lightly peel the same piece of ginger again and reinsert. If they contract their sphincter muscles the discomfort will be intensified; you can effect this yourself by squeezing their buttocks together.

Try some HOT variations

After ten minutes, remove the ginger and fuck your sub in the arse. You’ll find that the ginger left in there will have a stimulating and warming effect on your own penis. Some women find that ginger in their arse will make them feel very horny.  

If your sub is male, try putting a sliver of ginger in his urethra or some slices vigorously rubbed on the glans.

The next time you’re out clubbing with your pet or ponygirl, why not ginger her up shortly before taking her on the dance floor?

Word of advice. If you cut your “finger” of ginger too thinly, it may actually break off and a piece may become stuck in your sub's anus. Don’t despair, don’t rush to A&E at the local hospital. Just insert a little chilli and a clove of garlic accompanied by a squirt of soy sauce into your sub. Head for the kitchen and grab the wok! :)

I have had this done and it starts off feeling fantastic and warming. Then after a few minutes the pain was unbelievable, I wriggled and cried but my master just laughed more and more. After around 20 mins the pain started to calm down so my master began relentlessly hitting my ass with the thinnest cane he has, this not only really hurt but made my ass clench with each hit and in turn started the burning again. He left me bound in a hogtie for nearly 3 hours and every half hour he would remove the ginger and shave the top layer off with a potatoe peeler and then insert it again. Each time it is peeled the intensity raises again. Once done my master tied me to the bed spread eagle and fucked my ass until he filled me with his huge load. He laughed and said it’s not over yet as he made me squeeze his cum into a plate and then lick it clean. Oh my god it tasted Devine.
