Play Punishment

Definition - What does Play Punishment mean?

Play punishment is a specific type of punishment used in a BDSM relationship to spark an erotic encounter. Unlike traditional BDSM punishments, play punishments result from trivial misdeeds rather than from true behavioural infractions. While pain may be an element of play punishment, it is not usually too intense or severe.

Play punishment is also sometimes called funishment, a portmanteau of "fun" and "punishment."

Kinkly explains Play Punishment

Play punishment may be administered to the submissive for a minor misstep, such as overcooking dinner or forgetting to address their dominant as sir or ma'am. A play punishment does not look to correct these behaviours; instead this type of punishment often serves as an act of foreplay and a way to build connection between the submissive and dominant. It does not take the negative emotional toll of traditional punishment out on either the dominant or the submissive. Instead, play punishment is for the mutual pleasure of its participants. It can also be an emotional experience, although the emotions tend to more positive than those associated with “real punishment.”

Despite its differences from traditional punishment, play punishment may be administered in similar ways, such as through spanking, bondage, or erotic humiliation.

  • It was the wildness of it that got me going: the primal lust, the sheer needs of two people in heat, quickly finding ways to express their sacred hunger to each other in animal passion.
