    Similar to Knife Play

    Blood play is actually pretty standard on the fetish scene. For some people it's mostly about the sensation; they enjoy the sweet pain in the way that others might enjoy being spanked or flogged. For others, it's more about the marks it leaves behind - scarification can be a sign of ownership or take the place of a tattoo when done with the right finesse. Since you'll be piercing the skin, however, cutting play comes with some extra risks - so be meticulous about using clean, sterilised blades, cleaning up after yourself, doing your research in advance and being as careful as possible during a session.
    Some people love to be scared. Look at the popularity of roller coasters and horror movies, Halloween and real-life crime programmes. There's something about being afraid that makes people happy. Fear Play takes this a step further and makes being frightened an erotic experience. It can often be part of other BDSM practices such as knife play and abandonment play and is seen as edge play because it toys with the psychological and this kind of activity needs a lot of preparation, trust and aftercare. The thrill is different for the Dominant and submissive partner/s in a fear play scene, but fear is a robust way to bond with a person you trust.
    Needle play is usually thought of as being a subset of blood play, though it doesn't always necessarily involve blood. Most needle play is pretty straightforward, and involves play piercing using pre-sterilised, single-use needles designed to go through the skin and bought solely for the purpose. It is of course vital to only use any individual needle once, to make sure your needles are properly sterilised and to do your research before you begin your play. Make sure you have antiseptic wipes and plasters on hand, too - they're a vital part of aftercare for anyone who enjoys blood play and things related to it.
