Would Ginger Oil Work For Figging?

Kinkster Franklin Veaux (you may know him on the web from his famous sex map) tweets:


My instant thought was “Sure, why not? It will work (for certain values of work). But I don’t think it would quite be a proper figging.”

All of my experience is with the root. The carved root has bulk and texture that stretches the anal membranes and enhances the effect of the ginger juice on the surface of the root. I’m not convinced that a smooth oily toy (or gloved finger) would feel at all similar.

What’s more, fresh ginger juice is very aromatic and complex. Whatever apothecarian process you use to capture those aromatics and bind them up in oil is likely to be incomplete; you’ll get some of the virtue, but I’d worry you won’t get it all. Will the resulting oil cause warmth and tingling and possibly (depending on concentrations and dosages, something that’s not a worry with the fresh root) pain? Sure. And in its broadest sense, the figging fetish encompasses just about any chemicals people put on their tender bits. But it won’t be the fresh-root sensation that true figging fans have learned to love (and hate).

I’ve not personally tried ginger oil, but I did have some strong “essence of rosemary” oil once that I’d used (a few drops at a time) to scent massage oil. It made my girlfriend smell like a cooking turkey (yum!) (and that’s a whole ‘nother fetish for ya) but it also had a substantial warming effect when the massage got personal, to the point where she was vocalizing and writhing (in a good way). So that essential oil (especially if not diluted in quite so much olive oil) would definitely have been entertaining in a figging-style anal application. Other people have reported very effective sensations with peppermint and cinnamon oil, although I think an appropriate level of dilution is probably called for:

“The one and only time we used the cinnamon oil I thought my clit was going to be seared off. It wasn’t but I have heard of cinnamon oil raising blisters.”

Hot pepper oil, too, is sold on grocery store shelves and has frequently been used in BDSM, although most accounts suggests it’s very intense and cruel, with no way to dial it back when enough fun has been had.

That’s a key feature of figging with ginger root. When you take out a ginger root, the sensation begins to taper off quite rapidly. Not instantly, no, but quite soon. Oils aren’t easy to wash off skin, especially tender skin that’s already quite sore. So when you “fig” with warming oils, you’re signing up for a much longer ride with no quick way to get off. Not a problem if that’s the game you both want to be playing, but not as convenient as regular ginger figging.

Two Girls Caned And Figged

A brutal but nice caning and figging photo goes with this:

The insertion of freshly peeled ginger into the asshole of the slave girls, just before the spanking, deprived them from the ability to tense up their bodies and forced them to fully experience the upcoming dance of the riding crop on their butts.

Bondage Figging Picture on TwitPic

This bondage figging picture is, I think, a screencap from one of the movie clips that’s all over the tubes. If anybody knows the original source of this movie (the original publishers, the name of the movie it appeared it, that sort of thing, not just another stolen copy on another sleazy tube site) please comment!

Doctor Who Figging Fanfic

It’s a very short vignette, that starts like this:

Tears were in Rose’s eyes, and the noises she was making into the gag were driving the Doctor crazy. But he held his hand steady on her clit, watching her face as the sliver of ginger there steadily burned desire into her…

Ginger In His Penis

He got punished by his wife with a BenGay handjob, but then for added pain he got the ginger sliver right up his urethra:

Too many posts to the blog yesterday earned me “The suffer in silence” treatment again. However this time with a twist. This time with a Cock fig for additional pain and discomfort. Up until today this is one of the worst punishments I have EVER received.

The ginger slice (4 cm long) stuffed into my urethra caused a SEVERE burning pain that just wouldn’t go away until my wife removed it after my hour in solitude. I was drenched in sweat and that hour seemed like an eternity.

Her “Punishment” Figging

She calls it a punishment, but since her “Pet” asked for it, I’m a little skeptical about the effectiveness:

The punishment side of the three days happened on Thursday. Pet had told me about a new thing she wanted to try, ‘figging’. Which basically means putting peeled ginger in certain places. From Pet’s reaction, it seemed like on of the most painful half an hour of her life which is good to watch.

Figging: Doing It Wrong

It is important to understand that “figging” does not typically involve the use of actual figs.

These people? Got that wrong.

(Actually, I think it quite likely that they grokked proper figging; this can only be intended as a deliciously filthy visual pun.)

Her Session With Ginger

Figging.com having no linguists on staff who can translate Spanish, we’re going with machine translation for this page, which also has some very nice photos of an ass-and-pussy figging in progress. The machine translation is far from perfect, but better than nothing:

SESSION WITH GINGER

We sit, I watching with expectation as he peels a piece of ginger, prepares calmly looking at me from time to time as trying to figure out who I will be spending mind.

Since according to the shape and smoothness intended to give me orders that I lie and slowly introduces one into the anus, and another in the pussy and stares as react.

A slight warm sensation at first, to go heating up the heat from the burning, itching simultaneously, I tingle penetrates the skin.

My whole body writhes, hoping as time passes go reducing the intensity, which is not true.

Each time the burning, itching, stinging is increasing, I have wanted to withdraw, but he, anticipating my reaction I ordered not occur to me to take it off.

Really not take it anymore, I is burning and stinging so heinous, I only wish that done to recover my normal state.

After removing the burning tapers quickly, but the itch takes a little longer to disappear. I’m still somewhat altered, but I’m slowly recovering. It was a different experience, but something tortuous, it’s like having a live coal in inside me burning my insides.

Cleaning Her Pussy With Hot Sauce

Spotted on Tumblr: “I believe this pussy-cleaning kit comes with a stiff toothbrush and a small bottle of extra-concentrated Habenero chili sauce.”

A Butt Plug Made Of Soap?

Yes. Apparently “there is no better punishment than a plug shaped bar of Ivory up the ol’ ass. Burns and stings like crazy.”

This is captioned “ginger root punishment” but if it’s such a punishment, why is his dick leaking so much pre-cum?

A Figging Seen On Twitter

I don’t know how long a link to one of these TwitPics will last, but here goes for now: The Ginger Fig Is In.

Update: Had that drafted up there already, then the rest of the story came out via a tweeted link:

I have never heard so much noise from one person, anyone would have though a nuclear test had just gone off in her arse! Wriggling like a worm all over the bed moaning about how much this figging lark hurts. And begging me to stop!

For the sake of science, i thought the figging should go on and made sure it did.

My experiment I have to say lasted less than 10 mins, which is bollocks really and I personally think slave should be shown again. All she could do to sum it up, was to say it was like putting aftershave on your pussy but 10 times worse. Something we tried many years ago.
