  • Hygiene

Another thing that you should keep in mind is the hygiene part. Remember to clean the knives and yourself before and after the Knife play kink. Also, keep these knives exclusively for your sexual uses to maintain hygiene.

  • Movement of the Knife 

Of course, you need to be careful with the knife while using it along your partner’s body. Keep a basic principle in mind never push the knife and always pull it towards yourself.

  • Safe Word

Have a safe word for when something gets out of bounds to signal the same so that the partner may stop. Sharing a safe word in bed is always recommended.

For the submissive partner, make sure to use replaceable clothing if you agree to tear them off.

  • Two-Handed Use

Once you are confident of your dexterity with the knife, you can use Two Knives during Knife Play BDSM so that it gives you the choice to place the knife at two different stimulation spots and make it even more fun and unpredictable. However, be mindful of the movement of your partner’s body, especially with Two knives.

  • Threatening Whisper

If your Knife Play is a form of Fear play, you can also add a threatening element by inflicting fear and using suggestive language, movements or words. Make the fantasy world effective and fearful enough to keep them guessing and into it throughout.

  • Butterfly Flourish

Another arrow in the quiver to spice things up is to villainously, flip open a butterfly knife during Knife Play. The intimidation can enhance the Fear play situation and add more range to the pleasure-seeking.

  • Blindfold and Bondage

Knife Play BDSM definitely raises the stakes and perks up the kink to a whole new level. When paired with Knife Play, bondage also acts as a safety measure to restrict movement while keeping the excitement alive by tying them up to the bed poles, tables, or whatever else is convenient. Before blindfolding, show them the knife that will be used to make them aware of what is going to be done.

  • Show the Blade

Keep transparency with the usage of the Knife and what kind of it is being used so that it doesn’t hit your partner as a complete surprise either. This also enhances Fear play if you show them the knife right before blindfolding them. Just be sure to not cause jerky movements in order to avoid injuries.

  • Blunt Impact

You can innovate with the Knife a bit by using the handle for a few of your kinks and give a lighter impact. Similarly, the flat of the knife can be used to spank the partner. In addition, for safety purposes, avoid using the sharper end of the blade while using it along sensitive areas. You can raise the intensity with your words or threaten to use the sharper blade but shift it to the blunt part while actually using it.
