Anal torture is the BDSM practice of inflicting pain or pleasure-pain through anal stimulation. A dominant leads an anal torture scene and stimulates the anus of a submissive person or slave. As the skin around the anus is very delicate, anal torture is considered to be riskier than many other types of BDSM activities. Anal torture is sometimes called anus torture or ass torture.
Dominants can inflict anal torture with a variety of instruments designed to penetrate the anus such as anal probes, dildos, anal beads and butt plugs. They may also repurpose other instruments, such as needles, hooks, or pokers. Alternatively, dominants can use their own body to torture their submissive’s anus. A dominant may penetrate the anus either digitally or with their fist or have anal sex with their submissive as part of anal torture.
Penetration is common, but not essential, during anal torture; dominants may choose to stimulate the area around the anus without penetrating it. This prolonged stimulation can be a kind of torture for submissives longing for penetration.
Anal torture may also involve subjecting the anus to extreme temperatures. For example, a dominant may insert ice cubes or hot pokers into the anus or drip hot wax onto the orifice. The submissive may also feel a burning sensation if the dominant inserts a ginger root or chili pepper into the anus.
Medical play is a common component of anal torture. Dominants may administer an enema to their submissive partner during this process. They may also perform a rectal exam—the way a doctor does to check a patient’s prostate. They may also use a medical speculum to open up and inspect the anus.
Anal torture is a type of anal play. It is generally considered to be more intense and painful than other types of anal play. However, anal torture can also be pain-free, as it is in sensual domination. For example, a dominant may stimulate their submissive’s anus with a feather. This stimulation doesn’t hurt, but it can be torturous for a submissive who feels turned on and longing for more intense stimulation.
Anal torture may also be referred to as anus torture.
