Figging: Hot and Spicy Anal Play

Ginger Root and Oil

Just when I thought I had a handle on all the things that people stick up their asses to get a thrill, I came across ginger figging, which turns out is really just short-hand for torturing your own or someone else’s anus in a deliciously Medieval way.

On his kink blog, Franklin Veaux goes into a ton of detail, so I will just touch on a few of the main points here.

What Is Figging?

Do you know what a ginger root is? Sure you do. It looks like the gnarled hand of a wise old wizard. We chop it up and mix it into our stirfrys, or grind it into a fine powder to use in our Christmas cookies. Well, it turns out that some people also like to take ginger root and shove it up their butts. It’s true! BDSM couples know that there are many foods for kinky play.

When fresh ginger root is peeled and shoved into one’s vagina or ass, it delivers an increasingly intense burning sensation that some people find pleasurable. Of course, that burning sensation can become too much to bear if the ginger is left to languish, which is why, back in the day, figging was used as a form of torture.

How Do You Prepare for Figging?

Go to the grocery store or to your local farmer’s market with your partner. Wear your favorite matching sweaters and be sure to hold hands the entire time, as this will bring you the luck of the ginge. Comb through the bin in search of only the finest ginger root. You want one that’s fresh and that has plenty of long protrusions. (You’ll find out why this is so important in the next two sections, but for now don’t question it.)

Tune into your body. All true figgers know when they’ve found the perfect root because their bum holes will twitch just a little bit. “Don’t be a bitch. Wait for the twitch,” some figgers like to say.

How Do You Proceed?

Once you’ve found that perfect specimen of ginger root, take it home immediately and get to figging. Don’t leave it in the trunk of your car as you and your partner skip off to brunch or to a movie. You want that ginger root to be fresh as fresh can be, and every second it’s not inserted in someone’s rectum is one long second that it’s losing potency and not fulfilling its destiny! In other words, fresh ginger delivers more of a burning hit.

Cut off a nice, long piece of root and peel it with a sharp kitchen knife, then proceed as you would with any new kind of butt plug. Be cautious and gentle and encourage your partner’s feedback. And be sure to have a safe word in case the burning sensation becomes too strong!

Words of Caution?

Yes. As with anything you stick up your ass, there is a danger that it might get sucked up into your body. It’s bad enough to have that happen with your standard issue silicone butt plug, “Oh doctor! This is so embarrassing!” Imagine having it happen with a colony of fire ants, which is what it would feel like to have even the tiniest piece of ginger stuck up there.

Keep those roots long, and keep a good grip on them! You might want to carve a larger shaped base on your ginger root, just for safety’s sake. It’s all fun and games until someone needs exploratory surgery of the bowel!
