Fetish Talk – Figging aka Feaguing

0

This one sounds pretty unusual, but actually has a long history of use, and not just for sexual arousal or gratification. Figging is the practice of inserting a piece of skinned ginger root into the anus or the vagina of a person.” Currently, figging is now considered to be a form of punishment in BDSM practice.

Once used as form of punishment of female slaves in Ancient Greece and now in the BDSM community, the effects of raw ginger inserted into the anus or on the labia give the submissive a burning sensation and it is said that there is no permanent damage.

A fun fact on this is that if the person with the ginger in their tushy tightens the butt muscles, the sensation becomes quite a bit more intense and arousing. To some advanced players, the newly-cut ginger’s potency isn’t enough so they tend to ferment the ginger before use to give it an extra stronger kick.

Many Doms will agree that the best way to purchase your ginger for figging is by ‘the hand’. Ginger root when it grows resembles a hand, thus the word hand and of course the ‘pieces’ of ginger that protrude from the hand are fingers.  While supermarkets or grocery stores often pre-package their ginger, the best way to find it, is to look for it a farmer’s markets or fresh marketplaces. Once you obtain your ginger hand, be sure to keep it in a cool, dry place while you’re waiting to use it. Ginger root is also a little on the higher priced side for anyone interested in trying it.

If a burning sensation turns you on, then by all means have a ball, but if it doesn’t sound like fun, do not let anyone force you into it. Just be sure that you want to actually try it before diving in. Even submissives have their limits, and if it’s being used to punish you by your Dom, discuss with them your concerns. Research is your best friend, so be sure to do it extensively. Enjoy!
