Figging

Figging is when you insert a piece of skinned ginger into your vagina or anus.

It is a popular practice in BDSM circles throughout the world. Figging dates back to the Victorian era. The Victorians were a kinky bunch and you’ll often find figging mentioned in Victorian literature and texts.

It’s believed that figging began when a ginger finger was used in a victim’s anus whilst being caned — to prevent her from clenching her buttocks. When you clench, you feel a burning sensation.

I first heard of figging in an erotic novel and was eager to try it. Admittedly I haven’t tried anal-figging but I have tried vaginal-figging.

I haven’t tried it with a partner — I’ve only explored it on my own.

I’m a big fan of using clitoral heating-oils during masturbation and sex. I first discovered them when I worked in a sex-shop. My personal favourite is ON. But there are other brands. You can grab a bottle for around $40.

I often dab a bit on my clit after my shower in the morning. There’s nothing better than standing in a bank queue with your clitoris on fire. Something might as well be on fire whilst you perform mundane tasks during your day.

Other things that can be used on the clitoris to create sensations are chilli, ice or ginger. Ginger is absolutely gorgeous and I urge all women to give it a shot.

I just purchase raw ginger from the supermarket. I peel it and cut a tiny slice (the size of a thumb-nail) and place it on my clit. Your whole female anatomy will heat up (take my word for it) and you will be ready to fuck or ready for masturbation. The juice of the ginger will get on your fingers, which is excellent for internal vaginal play.  It’s HOT literally.

I PERSONALLY prefer using ginger just as a clitoral heating agent.

But when I’ve felt more hardcore and felt like breaking a pain threshold, I have inserted ginger vaginally. It’s pretty intense. But I’m glad I’ve tried it!

I do intend to experience anal figging in this lifetime when the right BDSM sesh arises. But I’m in no rush — I’m actually scared. 🙂

​Ginger-finger, anyone?
