BDSM Education- Ramping

gold bar

So what is ramping?  Ramping is a process some Dom/mes use in certain activities.  It is a slow build up to a peak, holding the sub at the peak for a while and then slowly coming back down so that the endorphins/high and the feeling of closeness, care and love aren't lost.  

Example of what could occur if ramping is used:

The Dom/me might take their doeskin flogger and begin the flogging with a slow steady rhythm.  When they feel you have reached the plateau they wish, they would then switch to a light suede flogger.  Once again when you reach a point they feel is right, they would then switch to a heavy suede flogger.  Again another level is reached and they switch to a braided elephant hide flogger.  Then a stingy rubber whip gets added as the sub flies/floats to another level.  Now to get to that peak a single tail or cane is used.  They hold you there till you think you can't take another stroke.  The sensation changes its the stingy rubber whip again, then after a time the elephant flogger, now you can't put your finger on it, ahhhhh a knotted rope flogger.  Slowly the sub is coming down but the high is continuing.  Such a balance the Dom/me must use not to jar you out of the floating wonderful subbie high you have going.  The heavy suede flogger, yummmmmm, now the light suede flogger, soft moans and sighs....the doeskin flogger.....feels like you are melting into a puddle on the floor, the room looks like it is filled with fog.  Oh ah, yum bunny fur being rubbed over your flogged body, OH MY!, fingernails on freshly flogged body, yum bunny fur again.  Ah my Dom/me pressing themselves into me, holding me.  I feel so close, it feels so right, it feels so loving, so safe, so warm.  I never want to go without this in my life, never want to be without my Dom/me.  I love you Sir/Ma'am/Master/Mistress.  <soft content smile> They love me too.
