Beware the ties that bind...
Actually, beware the damage which can be done to your cock.
mistress maddie has asked about "cock binding," also called cock "bondage," or "banding." It's a form of BDSM play that many people enjoy. But, it must be played safely! Because this is essentially like using a cock ring
(and we've talked about those before)
Depending upon how tight the cording is wrapped and how long it is kept in place, permanent damage can result. As the site BMEZINE puts it:
"It is very important to note that tight binding even as short as an hour can in some cases result in permanent and irreversible damage, sometimes resulting in full castration. Please be careful if you enjoy this type of play unless you want to be a eunuch! It is essential that you be able to release the bands; do not underestimate how difficult it can be to remove industrial ties or even elastrator bands."
Abrasion and bruising is always a risk
But, really what is happening is the flow of blood (and needed blood oxygen) is being cut off.
Some guys will just bind the balls
or the head
If you've got a partner with you, always, always, always! have a safe word. If your cock begins to feel cold or numb, it's time to loosen or remove the binding. Agree ahead of the games that he or she will keep an eye on the clock. If you're going at this solo, you'll need to be very cognizant of these things yourself.
Don't get so lost in the fun that you forget the healthy functioning of your equipment
Keep tabs on what's happening. Keep your cock (and balls) healthy
