Face Slapping

Definition - What does Face Slapping mean?

Face slapping is an act of power performed by a master or mistress to show his or her power over a submissive partner in a BDSM relationship. Face slapping emphasizes dominance while humiliating the submissive partner. It reinforces the established roles in a BDSM relationship by reminding the dominant party of his duties as a disciplinarian and reminding a submissive who is in charge. It can also help the submissive focus on his or her duty of pleasing the dominant partner.

Due to risk of injury, face slapping is generally seen as an aspect of edge play.

Kinkly explains Face Slapping

Face slapping may be seen in or out of a BDSM scene, as part of sexual interaction, or to punish the submissive for a transgression.

Due to the forceful nature of face slapping, this activity does carry some risk of injury to the submissive. It’s important to proceed with caution.

Face slapping should never be performed in anger. The face should only be slapped with a bare hand that is free of all jewelry and completely clean. Dominants can also get a sense of their own power by slapping themselves first.

The best place to slap is the fatty part of the face between the cheek and jaw bones. A finger slap is the most gentle. Slapping with the palm or full open hand delivers greater intensity which must be controlled. These techniques carry less risk of injury than backhanding. Slapping with the fingers splayed apart is also a gentler method than slapping with the fingers together. Keep the wrist loose and flexible to help absorb some of the slap’s impact.

Face slapping should only be used as part of a consensual interaction between two adults. It is an intimate act which requires clear understanding and trust between all parties. Consent may be given on a play-by-play basis or just once if the slap is an interaction between a master and slave. Consent can also be revoked and constant communication is key. Without consent, face slapping can be categorized as abuse.
