Anonymous asked: Hey so you made a post a while back about liking getting punched in the back, and I was just wondering if the puncher needs to know anything specific about anatomy or anything so as to avoid any real damage? I'm interested in trying it, but I don't want to really hurt myself and my partner also has no experience with it.
Go for the big muscles of the upper back, the deltoids and trapezius. Avoid: the spine, any spots where shoulderblades or ribs are prominent, and below the bottom of the ribcage (it takes a lot to seriously damage a kidney, but it’s still not a great idea or much fun to be hit there).
Most importantly, start slow. Never do anything for the first time at full-force; start out at a level that you know can’t possibly hurt anything because you get bumped harder than that on the subway, and slowly work up from that to find your comfort zone.
Also, this is not safe. You always assume some risk when you do physical BDSM. It’s not an extraordinary risk; it’s no worse than a heavy contact sport like football or wrestling. But it is a contact sport, and I believe you have to go in with that mindset and an understanding that good technique and caution will reduce your chance of injury, not eliminate it.
