Cock and Ball Torture 101: A Game of Tug-of-War You'll Want to Lose

Temptation and Torture

You probably think that since you’re sooo kinky that you’ve tried everything. But, have you really? If you’ve never punched, slapped, tugged, squeezed, poured wax on, or stuck your finger in a dick… have you done EVERYTHING? Subs are waiting for you to kick them where the sun might shine and blessedly burn their dick. Consequently, you have untapped resources to torture. So what are you waiting on?

What is CBT?

CBT, known as cock and ball torture, is a kink or fetish where pleasure is experienced by the recipient either because of an affinity for the pain itself or the humiliation that comes along with it. Or both. For the giver, there is pleasure in the sadism of delivering pain. And while it sounds like it could be excruciating, the truth is, cock and ball torture quite often looks more painful than it generally is. 

Consider that while the penis and balls are deliciously sensitive, the skin on the penis is similar to the skin on the earlobe in that it’s stretchy and doesn’t hurt very much if you squeeze or even pierce it. This means that if your sub is into getting their snake spanked, you might have to put in some real work for it to be as overwhelming as you may imagine. But of course, that also depends on whether your sub likes cock and ball torture for the pain or the humiliation. If it’s a combination, that should affect your approach as well.

How to Explore Your Kink

There are several ways to go about cock and ball torture. As with the exploration of any kink, start with the most basic, go slowly, and constantly check for consent, using the traffic light system. Know your partner’s hard limits. 

Hitting - This is exactly what it sounds like. In the beginning, it can look like thumping or slapping the dick, gradually increasing your impact. It can graduate to punching or kicking, called ballbusting. Quite obviously, this is a dangerous uptick and needs to be done with care, consent, and most of all, education. 

Abrasion - This cock and ball torture involves scraping things across the dick like teeth, fingernails, or even sandpaper. Go lightly and slowly.

Pinching - This can start with the hands and graduate to clothespins, gator clips. Clip the looser skin with multiple clips and remove and replace the clips one by one.

Tools for the Tool

If you have gotten this far in your cock and ball torture, and are up for more, you are probably ready for toys. There is a whole world of BDSM toys that specifically cater to CBT. This is where the fun starts because you can start to incorporate other elements of BDSM play.

Put a Ring On It

Cock rings are most people’s introduction to cock and ball torture. Typically used as a device to maintain an erection, it restricts blood flow making the penis extra sensitive. Cock rings can be as simple as a single ring made of metal, leather, or silicone, or they can be as intentionally intimidating as the Gates of Hell or a chastity sheath. Many cock rings come as an attachment to a ball stretcher like the Duo Cock and Ball Shaft Support or the Duo Cock and Ball Ring.

Ball Busting

More intense than cock rings are ball crushers. Ball crushing is not for the faint of heart and should be only be applied after having studied with a professional or very experienced cock and ball torture practitioner. A ball crusher is a metal or acrylic device that flattens the balls slowly using a screw. 

Pump Up the Peen

The thing is, it’s not ONLY about the pain, humiliation, or sadism. When you restrict blood flow from the penis or balls, it makes the erection more intense, as mentioned before. However, that just means that the sub, when allowed, comes that much harder with much more semen. So, in alignment with all other BDSM, there is a teeter-tottering of pain and pleasure. Cock and ball torture is not as abstract to the BDSM community as one would think. Just be mindful about when to stop. If you see a loss of color, something is wrong. Stop immediately. Never leave a restrictive device on for longer than 30 minutes at a time, and always give ample recovery time before going back in. 

Trying cock and ball torture can be fun, exciting, and a little bit scary… but then so is everything else worth trying. It’s worth it!
