Branding By Campfire

always wanted a branding, and pictured it done in a sort of Gorean setting, with the brand heated on a campfire. A few years ago, when I was 27, my then- "significant other" and I arranged to do it. This is not the safest or most sanitary or professional way to do a branding, so I would not recommend it to others, but for me, it fulfilled a fantasy, and the experience was incredibly hot. He had an identity symbol he used with his signature, a sort of squiggly "5" taken (so he said, anyway) from Tolkien's Elvish, which we ... read more

My blood-drinking/cutting fetish

My blood-drinking/cutting fetish At A Glance Author Akasha Caduceus Contact RecallSin@aol.com To begin with, I have simply this to say: I have a blood fetish. To elaborate upon this, there's also the matter of cutting....and of being cut....which is what not only makes the blood-letting easier, but also much more fun! I remember a few years back when I came across the BME website and saw the scarification section. Curious, I checked out the cutting part, and, at the time, was revolted by it! I thought that the designs were nice and all, but the idea of letting someone cut ... read more

First brand, self brand.

late at night, and I'd had a very bad day. Maybe this start will cloud peoples perspectives as to my reasons for doing this, but please don't confuse this experience with any of my others. I admit now that I am also a confessed self injurer, cutting myself for emotional relief, but the brand was something else. I was sitting at my desk, playing with my knife and a lit candle. I found my self passing the knife blade through the flame, trying to melt off some wax on it from carving earlier. I had my music on in the ... read more

Reading the Body

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/culture/990515/reading.html"> "In the two hundred years since tattooing has been (re-) introduced to the West, the phenomenon has gone through cycles of acceptance and rejection as an art form" (Campbell, DAI). A few weeks ago I was sitting in on a professor's 'Disability Lit.' class. She utterred the phrase; "Body as text." The phrase, in this setting, referred directly to a disabled person and how a person's body could literally be read. Even though that particular phrase was a direct reference to a disabled body I started to think of other instances in which the body could be ... read more

Hook-pull experience

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/ritual/990415/hookpull.html"> On March 26, 1999 I had my first experience with having hooks put through my flesh. I was one of three participants in a three-way hook pull. While a hook pull isn't quite as extreme as a hook suspension, it was a very unique, intense, and personal experience (even though it took place in front of 1300 people). The event took place at the Big Bad Fetish Ball IV, in Cleveland, OH. The BBFB is an annual event open to the general public. One of the highlights of the event is a fetish/alternative clothing fashion show. The ... read more
