    I was thinking about trying Icy Hot or something like it while we play, especially to take advantage of any possible sensitivity after bondage. Has anyone tried it?

    I haven't used it in play but I'd be very careful using it on or near sensitive skin or wounds. Definitely try it before play time.

    I use it all the time, which is why I know that if I get it on my neck it's stings BAD for some time. It also has some serious hang time, it will take a thorough washing to get it off your hands, etc.

    I've never used it, but many doms do use it for pain play. Be careful where you put it--for example it's probably not a good idea to put on the soft tissues of the vagina or the anus, or on broken skin (so don't use it if you've drawn blood or caused a lot of welting). Be prepared to wash it off with a sponge or damp cloth if the sub can't handle it. Especially if you've made the skin sensitive with impact play or hot wax, a little will go a long way.

    Soap too, it's remarkably difficult to wash off, especially when you need to get it off fast.

    edit: Try experimenting with generics as well, they're often not as intense (or expensive).

    Good advice, thanks guys. I'll definitely try to look for a generic alternative too, it can be expensive. She's also somewhat fair skinned so a less intense alternative would probably be a good idea to start out with anyway.

    Advice: don't use shampoo on your cock. It will make the skin sore, then cause it to turn into a hard, dead crust, which painfully flakes off. Don't ask how I know that.

    Also, this is what happens when you put IcyHot on your genitals:

    @Split: I recall a story about a guy who made that mistake floating around the net some 12 years ago... .

    In general, I'd stay away from chemical agents that produce heat or cold. Or maybe just chemical agents in general. Those things usually have very specific appliances and unless specifically designed for the much softer tissue of genitals, chances they are bad are usually in the 10:1 and up area.

    If you want something for senseplay after bondage, I can recommend massage oils. Most of them have a warming effect, enhanced by the massage motion and usually feel very good on sore areas. Back when I did martial arts tournaments, my ex used to massage me with oils after. The relaxation this provides is indescribable.

    You might consider mint or cinnamon oil, both of which can be fairly intense when applied on the skin directly.

    P.S. and seb, those are both good ideas. I never considered mint or cinnamon oil because I didn't realize they had that effect on skin. I'll have to look into both of your ideas.

    I like the sound of cinnamon oil, does anyone know where you can get it from?

    Health food shops (lush, holland and barrat, bodyshop)

    Or anywhere that sells incense (just be careful with those types of oils though - read up!)
