Ever wonder why gingerbread men are always smiling?
Figging is anal play involving ginger root. Ginger’s said to increase your sexual pleasure by increasing blood flow to your genitals, which can allow you to experience more intense orgasms.
It is an ancient sexual practice which involves inserting a ‘finger’ of peeled ginger root or even chili pepper into your anus. This creates an intense burning sensation in your anal lining which figgers and BDSM fans find pleasurable.
Ginger can be used in various ways in the bedroom, besides traditional figging. You could ask your lover to insert a ginger finger into your vagina or you could pop a thin sliver of it into your man’s urethra and watch him writhe in ecstasy.
After figging, share a warm shower with your lover and spray all of your figging spots to soothe!
While the burning sensations may not appeal to everyone, even for those who enjoy it, it can sometimes become too much. Tom's Cock Whore writes of a recent figging experience: "We have tried it before and actually really enjoyed the experience, and I believe the last time I was begging him to fuck me harder with it. This time however, things did not go as well. It was EXCEPTIONALLY hot, and my ass was tender to begin with following several days of bowel issues. I don't think I was in the right frame of mind for such activities either. I ended up crying and telling him it hurt, and it really did, actually hurt quite badly. Not just from the root itself being shoved into my ass, but the spice from it was a lot hotter than the last time. At least from what I remember. And of course you can't really use any lube because it takes away from the effect of the spice."
