Fear Play

Definition - What does Fear Play mean?

Fear play describes any sexual activity that involves the use of fear to bring about sexual arousal.
In fear play, an individual's terrified mental state triggers a rush of adreline which causes arousal. Fear play is different from masochism, in which arousal is caused by an endorphin rush.

Fear play falls into a category of BDSM-related activities, marked by high physical or psychological risk, called "edge play."

Kinkly explains Fear Play

Some forms of fear play may take advantage of a person's pre-existing emotional doubts and fears, of abandonment or humiliation for example, while others work on a physical level. Physical forms of fear play include medical play, knife play, and kidnapping.

  • I love being aroused. I relish that delicious feeling of freedom, the delirium of being naked, and my flesh being born again. It’s like I’m being made new.
