Ball busting, or ballbusting, is a general colloquial term for any type of cock and ball torture, or genitorture, involving the testicles. Ball busting can consist of actions such as squeezing, tight binding and striking of the testicles, using the hands, feet, or torture aids such as paddles, whips, floggers, humblers and other manmade devices. A ball buster refers to the person who administers these activities.

Ball busting is most commonly a submissive activity delivered by a dominant woman to a submissive male partner. That said, there is also a significant contingent of ball busting enthusiasts in the gay community. Ball busting is also common in pornography, perhaps allowing some people to enjoy it vicariously, rather than in person.

More About Ball Busting

The testicles are a common target on a submissive's body for a dominant because they are extremely sensitive and place of vulnerability as well as a center of sexuality. The importance of the testicles for sex and reproduction, and the thought of nullifying these sex organs, can be very arousing for a dominant partner, as well as for a submissive who enjoys pain, pleasing a dominant and a sense of vulnerability.

Ball busters generally enjoy the power they feel when bringing a submissive man to his knees. It takes very little stimulation for a ball buster to dominate a man, and this ease can bring them great pleasure and amusement.

On the flip side, men can also take pleasure from the vulnerability they feel when being ball busted. They appreciate the power that a dominant partner can have over them, and may even become aroused at the mere thought of a master busting their balls. Because of the power exchange that occurs during ball busting, this practice can be an effective way to reinforce the roles in a BDSM relationship.

Endorphins released during the pain of ball busting can also create a sexual high, especially during arousal. It is possible to orgasm and ejaculate just from ball busting.

Ball busting is typically a consensual act performed by adults who understand their roles. Many people who enjoy ball busting have a masochistic streak, while men who are ball busted often have a fetish for shoes, boots, feet, or legs.

It is essential to use a safeword when practicing ball busting, and to be aware of the ways in which the testicles can be seriously injured. Practitioners of ball busting may be looking to experience discomfort or even pain, but most want to avoid permanent injury.
