Post-orgasm torture describes the uncomfortable and sometimes painful stimulation of the genitals and other erogenous areas immediately following orgasm. For many people, the vulva, clitoris, labia, vagina, penis, anus, scrotum and perineum can be very sensitive immediately after an orgasm. Some people do not want these parts touched in the moments after climax. For those who do, it is possible to achieve a very powerful and intense orgasm through this method, although it also involves facing discomfort and ceding control.
How is post-orgasm torture done?
Post-orgasm torture may involve stimulation with hands, mouth, feet, penis, vulva, other body parts, sex toys and more. Bondage can also be incorporated into the scene to ensure the person being tortured cannot stop their torturer. Note that, despite the use of the word torture, the recipient of post-orgasm torture is engaging in a consensual act.
Anyone, regardless of gender or sexuality, can be the recipient of post-orgasm torture or the person doing the torturing. Post-orgasm torture is also a form of control or power play, where one person exerts sexual control over another person.
This type of dominant/submissive scene may or may not involve other BDSM or control-related aspects, or the players may just desire the moments after orgasm to be the focus. Some people may sustain this post-orgasm period and torture, continuing stimulation until the discomfort abates and the person being tortured is ready to continue sexual activity.
Mistress Mona, a Dominatrix based in Philadelphia, says that “post-orgasm torture is taking advantage of somebody’s genitals after orgasm. For example, after someone with a clitoris cums, pinching the clit, to cause this pain, instead of pleasure. It’ll feel particularly sensitive because they just had an orgasm.”
How many people are into this kink?
A 2015 survey of 1,580 female-identifying people within the kink community found that about 28% of the women had experienced breast torture, and 16% had had genital torture performed on them. Overall, about 50% reported being involved in either breast or genital torture in some capacity, whether they were receiving, doing, or observing the activity.
Post-orgasm torture is also commonly found in pornography, where the drama and intensity of these scenes lend themselves well to filming. Post-orgasm torture has also generated a genre of memes, which include images of characters in some sort of sensory overload with the caption "nutted but she still suckin'."
