Vibrator Torture

Vibrator torture is a practice where a dominant person reinforces their control over a submissive partner using a vibrating sex toy. This toy may be a traditional vibrator or a vibrating egg controlled remotely. Under an experienced dominant's skilled hands, a vibrating sex toy can be as effective a torture tool as any more well-known torture device.

Vibrator torture is most commonly practiced on the clitoris, vulva and vagina—when it is called "cunt torture." However, vibrating sex toys can also torture the anus. Vibrator torture may be a form of punishment for a submissive who steps out of line. It can also be a component of a BDSM scene.

Vibrator torture can involve relentlessly stimulating the genitals or anus with the vibrating sex toy, giving the submissive orgasm after orgasm until they believe they can no longer stand it. The dominant can also order the submissive not to come, despite the vibrating stimulation they receive. This kind of vibrator torture falls under the umbrella of orgasm denial. The dominant may also practice edging, torturing the submissive with the vibrator until they are at the brink of orgasm, then withdrawing the stimulation before they can come.

Dominants may also use the vibrator’s settings to vary the torture. Most vibrators allow dominants to change the intensity of the vibrations. They may start with a very gentle vibration and gradually increase the intensity until the submissive isn’t sure they can stand it. Some vibrators also have different modes. By changing the vibrator’s mode, dominants can vary the rhythm of the vibrations their submissive experiences.

While vibrator torture typically refers to stimulating the genitals or anus with a vibrator, a dominant may also torture their submissive by applying the vibrator to other parts of the body. Feeling the vibrator hum against other body parts, such as the ankle or upper thigh, rather than stimulating the genitals or anus, can provide a different kind of torture. The dominant may tease their submissive by applying the vibrator everywhere but the places they want to be stimulated.

More About Vibrator Torture

The submissive is often bound during vibrator torture, to ensure they are immobile and unable to resist the torture. Alternatively, the dominant can just order the submissive to stay still and take the torture. This kind of psychological restraint can add another level to BDSM play.

Dominants may enhance vibrator torture with other kinds of BDSM play. For example, a dominant may mix vibrator torture with sensory play with ice cubes.

A submissive may be naked, partially clothed, or fully clothed for vibrator play. When the submissive doesn't wear underwear, the dominant can use the vibrator to directly stimulate or penetrate their genitals or anus. However, some dominants like to stimulate their submissives through their underpants. The layer of thin fabric can act as a torturous barrier, turning the submissive on but providing less stimulation than they may like. Torturing a submissive dressed in a sexy outfit can also be visually stimulating to the dominant.

Dominants and submissives often enjoy vibrator torture because it reinforces their relationship roles. This practice allows the dominant to take charge of their partner’s pleasure and orgasm. The power they feel can be a real turn-on. The submissive feels helpless as the dominant tortures them in whatever way they see fit. Feeling vulnerable adds to the arousal the submissive feels when they’re tortured by a vibrator.

While submissives may feel helpless or vulnerable during vibrator torture, this sex practice, like all responsible BDSM practices, must be consensual. A submissive must give their explicit consent before a scene involving vibrator torture. Consent can also be implied in a long-term BDSM relationship. For example, if the dominant knows the submissive well, they should know vibrator torture doesn’t cross any of their partner’s hard limits. The submissive can also withdraw consent at any time by saying their safeword.
