Illustrated Guide – Figging

Figging, also called Victorian Figging, is the process of carving a piece of ginger into a butt-plug. To get the most from it, run the ginger lightly over a grater after it is peeled, and you’ll find you can keep the intensity up by refreshing it with the grater every 10 minutes or so. Insertion should be done without lube.

A little know fact: Ginger is often sold as old ginger and new ginger. Old ginger (which tends to look more woody on the outside) is more intense. There are also various varieties of ginger, and I have it on good authority that they “taste” different. Perhaps there’s a game of “match the ginger” in that, where you let your submissive sniff or lick various types of ginger first and then ask him or her to match the sensations they are feeling during the figging blindfolded?

We’ve reblogged this illustration from Arkham-Insanity at DeviantArt. She’s got a bunch of great spanking illustrations in her gallery worth checking out.

This is a regular series of illustrated guides. You can find the others here.
