What is Ballbusting?

by | Jun 29, 2021 | BDSM | 0 comments

The delivery and enjoyment of pain during sex is a keystone element to BDSM. A number of techniques exist that a dominant can execute on their submissive partner to instill this oddly enjoyable sense of physical torture, one of the most prominent being the act of ballbusting. 

Ballbusting is a rather serious ordeal, as the testicles are one of the most pain-sensitive areas on a male submissive, but that doesn’t stop them from lusting over the wild range of sensation that this practice provides. 

Usually reserved for those who are experienced in the realm of BDSM, as there are fine lines between pain and possible injury, but that doesn’t mean that an inexperienced couple cannot experiment with light forms of this intriguing play. 

So let’s get all into ballbusting and how/why it just might be the next form of sexual experimentation for you to try!

What is Ballbusting?

Ballbusting is the term used to describe the dominant delivery of affliction to the submissive testicles of a male counterpart, an aspect of the umbrella term ‘cock and ball torture’. 

This is performed through various forms of ballbusting torture. Some of these tortures to the testicles include:

  • Tight Squeezing
  • Binding of the balls
  • Smacking/hitting
  • Biting

These actions can be performed with either the hands, the feet, or the mouth, but for even more sensation, it is more than common to see toys implemented into this masochistic practice. 

Toys allow for more variety, and also more extremes, to the range of ballbusting techniques and torture. There are multiple toys that fall under the category of ballbusting toys, and some of the best, as well as the most widely used, include:

Ballbusting is a sexual fetish, and the source of enjoyment arises from the fact that the testicles are the main sex organ of the male. Because a male’s sexuality stems from the balls, they become the perfect target to create a definitive dominant/submissive relationship and provide the dominant the perfect method to showcase their power over the other.

The Ballbuster

Ballbusting is reserved for those with testicles, and men are generally the subject as the submissive within the setting. 

But what about those who deliver this testicle torture?

The ballbuster is the dominant in the relationship, and this can be either a heterosexual or bisexual female, a homosexual or bisexual male, or any other gender who is ready to feel what it is like to be in charge. 

Who is Ballbusting Right for?

Considering that ballbusting is an aggressive form of pain delivery, ballbusting is right for those who relish the idea of being tortured by a dominant partner. Many men are highly turned on in a sexual setting when they can entirely let go of any power construct they may have, such as a high position at work, which creates a sense of freedom when they no longer have control over the situation. 

Sometimes the thought alone of allowing another partner to maintain complete control over something as sensitive as their testicles will instill a sense of desire. There are many men out there who are actually turned on by the idea of losing their testicles completely. When acted out in real-time, this is the culmination of their deepest desires and kinkiest wishes manifesting. 

And when it comes to the actual feeling, the sensations that ballbusting provides, this is where things get serious. The balls are a weak point in terms of a male’s body, and it is all too easy to stimulate them with these torture techniques to release massive amounts of endorphins for the epitome of a sexual high.

This enjoyment of masochism for those who receive both mental and physical pleasure from the delivery of pain makes ballbusting the perfect scenario to execute in a sexual setting. 

But as well as he who receives the pain, there is ample enjoyment for the dominant who is in control. Sadism refers to pleasure through delivering pain, and ballbusting is sadism at its finest. 

The testicles, being a weak point, make it all too easy for the dominant to remain in charge and to create the sense of “it hurts so good”. The simplicity of this dominant construct and the effortless ability to turn a man on through ballbusting torture is a relished form of domination behavior. 

With this, ballbusting is simply right for those who wish to promote a dominant and submissive relationship within their love life and who wish to utilize more intense forms of masochistic and sadistic delivery while doing so.

Ballbusting for Beginners

Although ballbusting is serious, and it takes research, experience, and practice to nail down the safe and effective techniques that provide the most pleasure through pain, that doesn’t mean your ‘average’ couple cannot apply this within their own relationship. 

If you have discovered that your man loves it when you are in charge and/or becomes turned on via the delivery of any form of physical or mental pain, then ballbusting just might be something you wish to experiment with. 

The key is, of course, to take it slow and never go overboard when first starting out with this sexual practice. 

Have a conversation together to establish that this is something you wish to try, and you don’t need whips and ball crunchers to make this happen. 

Instead, just utilize what you already have, as your hands, your feet, and your mouth are the perfect place to start with light bouts of torture to the testicles. 

It doesn’t have to be too intense, and instead, a little bit of tight gripping around the testicles, a light ‘love tap’, and some subtle biting is all you need to begin understanding the various thresholds of your partner’s pain. Once you gain this understanding, you can work together to determine if heightened intensities and the inclusion of ballbusting toys are something you wish to pursue further!

Always stay open and honest as you delve into this journey, create boundaries with a safeword, and most importantly: enjoy the process!
