Submitting to a Spanking…the Art of Figging

Everyone deserves a hard spanking now and then. Let’s face it, we’re all unruly at times, bitchy and pushing every button to get our way. I often state that in my profession, I’m merely a professional babysitter of very large children. So very true… I think some infractions warrant stricter methods of discipline. There are times the punishment has to fit the crime, so to speak. There’s one method John Patrick and I have talked about often – figging.

I haven’t expressed my thoughts about figging in a long time. I’ve found very little in the way of blog posts, pictures or articles written about the subject. What is it exactly? This is the use of ginger root placed in the anus. The oils secreted seep in and intensify after a few minutes. When a spanking is issued, generally the spankee clenches his or her ass when the implement is struck against their backside. This tightening of the muscles creates a burning sensation cause by ginger. While the effects of the root don’t last very long, the intensity is unequaled in my opinion.

I have talked with couples who swear by this method. Then there are others who say the method doesn’t seem to have the same effect. If you’re interested in trying, I say by all means I think you should. Don’t worry, this isn’t going to cause any permanent damage and the sensations wear off after only fifteen minutes or so.

The idea is that the Dom of HOH wants a stinging effect. Are there other options available? Mint toothpaste and drops of hot sauce are often used. They do leave a burning, almost warning tingling, but little else. I think the entire experience around a figging event is much like the anticipation of receiving the discipline itself. Why? Because you have to hunt down the perfect piece. Where do you find ginger root? Now a days, you can find fresh ginger in almost every major grocery store. They’re nestled by the baby Brussel Figging 1sprouts and lemons and limes. They look rather impressive with their dark skin and finger like tentacles. I have to laugh with regard to the first time John Patrick and I looked for the perfect size stalk. Obviously for the majority of people, they’re looking for a nice hunk to shave portions into a soup or salad. For the true spanking family, the need is born of something else entirely.

I stepped back when he was scrutinizing, and I do mean scrutinizing, a long, solid piece, twisting and turning as he studied the various fingers (the nubby gnarled finger like portions secured to the main stalk). I think there were at least three people that stood for a few seconds watching him, no doubt trying to figure out what in the hell he was doing. I could barely contain myself from laughing. He asked my opinion only once before tossing the piece into the basket.

There are just a few things you need to keep in mind when purchasing ginger. What are you actually shopping for? You do want a long tube style piece with a well-developed center. You’re looking for one that’s as straight as possible. The fingers actually are going to be cut off. From here? It’s all about the cutting.

I actually wrote a piece nearly four years ago called The Fire of Submission. This is a f/f, m/f/f piece in which the husband gives his wife a gift of being Dommed by a woman. Of course he gets to watch all the festivities. This was the first time I added figging to any of my books. I required the submissive to sit naked and watch every rather detailed moment while the Domme carved the ginger, placing in a plastic bag and chilling in the refrigerator while they had a glass of wine.

Getting to look into her mind as the root was prepared, the nodules removed, the skin Spanking by Sirpeeled, and the piece carved to look very much like an ass plug, left her hot and wet. That’s exactly what you’re going to do with the piece. That’s one reason you want to find as large of a piece as you possibly can. You also need to carve a base with notches, just as an anchor point. For the session with John Patrick and I, he’s an expert with a pocket knife, but he teased, telling me I should carve my own method of discipline. Instead, I watched as I sipped on wine. He’s meticulous, so the entire preparation took over twenty minutes. That’s twenty minutes of panting, apprehension, anticipation and desire.

Why did I say desire? This is a very intimate experience no matter if the concept is meant to create more pain during punishment. JP remained quiet the entire time, concentrating on what he was doing, and I found myself panting. When he was finished, he held the now pale but well defined plug into the light. His only words were, “thirty minutes”. He placed the root in a plastic bag and slipped into the crisper.

From there we had wine and chatted, about anything and everything BUT the ginger. Thirty minutes later I was required to lie face down on the bed. He did his usual, soothing of the savage beast, telling me I deserved a spanking and why, but that he loved me. When I heard the crinkle of the bag, I just about jumped out of my skin. I’m not entirely certain why. He inserted slowly, his words remaining soothing. Keep in mind, you NEVER use lubricant. This masks the effect of the oil.

When the plug was all the way inside, he patted my ass, told me to remain still and left the room. Well, as we all know, I’m not a patient girl. I grew bored within seconds and in truth, I wasn’t certain the root was going to work at all. I felt nothing at first- no tingling, no burning. Nothing. After about ten minutes, I almost disobeyed and left the room in search of him. Kinda glad I didn’t. He walked in a little over five minutes later and by that point, tingling sensations were more than a bit ass puckering so to speak.

From here, the spanking was very much as I’ve had before, this time he used the belt. However, there is no way to describe the way the ginger performed and the heightened Body Betraysintensity. The natural instinct might be to clench, but after doing so the first couple of times, you do everything you can not to. I squirmed and moaned, cried and begged. He was having none of it. He allowed the spanking to go on a tad bit longer in my opinion. LOL. No doubt I deserved. When he was finished, I was worn out. I can tell you, one of the best and worst experiences I’ve ever had.

The effects do wear off, but you can rejuvenate by cleaning off, leaving a little wet and placing in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for a week or so. What’s going to happen is the piece will discolor, creating a thin covering of mold. You want the mold as this is what does the re-energizes the root. Merely clean off piece and use again. Small slices or sections can be placed in other locations, like just inside the pussy. This is a powerful aphrodisiac.

What do you think? Ready to make a little trip to the grocery store? I thought so.

Kisses and spanks…

  2. I’ll admit this has peaked my interest before. I may try it. Just as long as it doesn’t resemble the uncomfortable aftereffects of eating too much Mexican food…
