Chemical CBT

(This touches on other uses of stingy ointments and the like.)

The opening of a request for information that I posted on several forums:

It has been many years since as a youth I liberally coated my penis with wintergreen oil thinking it might make masturbation more fun. All I can recall is how rapidly I got to the sink and some cold water.

Several years ago after crushing a habaneros pepper for chili I scratched an itch. That left me with great respect for capsaicin.

Erotic, Filthy, Sexy Fun for Submissive and Masochistic Men

Female Domination and Male Slavery. 100% Femdom


No popups. Nothing to pay. I do this for fun. Think of me as a one-man F/m Tumblr site.

Like many masochistic men I’m hypnotized by cbt. Aside from clothespins, which are disappointingly mild, we haven’t really explored it. No complaint, maybe there’ll be a time for it, maybe not.

Given the deep connection between my slavish side and my testicles all she has to do is tap them lightly to trigger the desire to grovel. Why I’ve never been able to discern but having a simple act that so deeply humbles me seems a quirk for which to be grateful.

The possibility of perverting ordinary household chemicals into a safe means of torture exerts a strong fascination. Oddly while a common enough practice I got few responses.

A reply via the Fetish Information Exchange:

Some of the other things that can be used include: menthol oil, eucalyptus oil, Vicks Vaporub, peppered olive oil, chili pepper (peel), Tiger Balm, tabasco sauce, Indonesian pepper sauce (sambal oelek). Then there are the things you can do with citrus juices, or with baking soda and vinegar. Fresh ground spices can produce irritations that range from heat to intense itching. Using these with glycerine suppositories can be even more intense.

Essential oils containing peppermint, citrus, and cinnamon also have their uses. Liniments containing things like camphor, wintergreen or capsaicin rubbed into a freshly spanked bottom produces a nice effect. And of course things like Ben-Gay or Icy-Hot applied to the genitals provides a sensation that builds to a peak quickly and then fades away. For a milder effect, try toothpaste. The gel types work well and Closeup comes highly recommended.

Bread will absorb a lot of oil. Milk can cut various oils too.

Forum: Cock and Ball Torture

Turning to soc.subculture.bondage-bdsm.femdom I found something I’d been looking for a summary of the Scoville Heat Unit measurement of the heat level of peppers:

  • Bell 0 Scoville Units
  • Sweet Italian 0 Scoville Units
  • Peperoncini 100-500 Scoville Units
  • New Mexico 500-1,000 Scoville Units
  • Ancho,Pasilla,Poblano 1,000-1,500 Scoville Units
  • Sandia,Rocotillo 1,500-2,500 Scoville Units
  • Jalapeño,Chipolte 2,500-10,000 Scoville Units
  • Serrano 5,000-23,000 Scoville Units
  • de Arbol 15,000-30,000 Scoville Units
  • Piquin,Aji,Cayenne 30,000-50,000 Scoville Units
  • Habanero,Scotch Bonnet 80-300,000+ Scoville Units

From above, the familiar jalapeño, for example, measures between 2,500 and 10,000 Scoville Heat Units. The rather fiery Cayenne, a key ingredient in Cajun cooking and Louisiana-style hot sauces, boasts up to 50,000 Scoville Heat Units. But by far the most mouth-burning chile of them all is the habanero which averages between 80,000 and 300,000+ Scoville Heat Units.

It is important to remember that the capsaicin in a habaneros pepper is only a fraction of the strength of a cream.

Cinnamon oil was another suggestion:

A high grade Cinnamon oil will do the trick, especially if inserted with a cotton Q-tip, which will slightly abraid the urethra lining, and soak the oil in. When your oiled male goes to the bathroom, the oil/urine mixture causes the urethra to burn. Urine, for the most part, is sterile, and as long as you’re sterile when you do this, no harm other than what you intend, should happen.

Madame Giggles (from whom we bought our Jack In The Pulpit cautioned:

I seem to be the safety pest here, but I’d suggest not using cinnamon oil, or if you must, diluting it a LOT. I know some people have used it with little or no ill effect, but cinnamon oil is a serious irritant …

And I’ll add a caveat against carelessly forcing chemicals down the urethra, just the opening should provide sufficient sensation safely.

As noted above stingy ointment play does not have to involve the genitals. It can be done after a spanking or whipping (though I’ve often imagined being sprayed with diluted lemon juice or vinegar which would disinfect as well as sting a bit).

It can also be combined with abrasion play.

As yet the umpteenth proof of my masochism I’ve fantasized about having my penis rubbed with sandpaper (something that can easily be done lightly). Also my buttocks before a whipping.

Many people I’ve learned enjoy having their nipples brushed with sandpaper and then some heating liniment, cream or oil applied. Though as I’ve learned with Alexandra stiff brushes make for exciting abrasion play.

Two very important precautions to remember: when applying something to the skin for the first time only touch a tiny area. If there’s no allergic or other unwanted adverse reaction more pain can always follow later.

A sadist when applying them unless it is from a roller should wear disposable gloves. Accidentally touch your eye and you’ll be in much worse pain than the masochist.

NB: Capsaicin ointments are really quite wonderful for relieving certain kinds of muscle and joint soreness. I’ve always had at least one tube around for many years now.

Do you have any grocery or drug store pervertables that you’ve enjoyed playing with?

In an earlier entry a few people share their experiences in the comments: Preposterous CBT III.


After reading about tiny little hair clips with great interest at A Slave’s Path, I went to the dollar store and picked some up (in both tiny and ultra-tiny sizes).

Haven’t tried clothespins on my pet’s cock yet (though I did a bunch in the general area), but the tiny little clips were lovely. (He told me a couple of times “I don’t know if I can take that, ma’am.” But he did—he is a good boy.) I’m looking forward to playing with them again.

I remember that entry. I’d be curious to hear if they seem to pinch more than clothespins.

Well, the only penises I play with are attached to other people. So I can’t tell you from personal experience.

I asked my pet, who notes “the clips offer more bite for a more manage-able area.” My tests on the web between my thumb and index finger, as well as on equivalent body parts, would tend to bear this out.

The clips exert any pressure onto little tiny prongs or teeth; the clothespin has more contact surface area. I don’t have a tensometer, or I could really geek this reply up.

A tip from MistressWKytten on Orgasm Denial:

My boys (well most of them) enjoy what I call “devil’s spit” 50/50 icy hot/ben-gay and lotion. Much to my chagrin they make some yummy noises.

I hear tale, it’s not wise to rinse with cold water, unless you LIKE the burn.

i haved used every chemical on earth for cbt. made many mistakes and suffered dearly for it. allways looking for the magic potion” (cant spell}. got a few tips from you but some of that stuff causes severe pain

Straight Ben-Gay on the balls is very intense. Hurt so bad that I nearly vomited. Be careful!

Remember the film “Two Years Before the Mast”? After the hero was flogged with the cat, salt poured on his bacak “to help heal the cuts.” Yowza!

Your feelings?

Please share your feelings about Chemical CBT. Please stick to the topic of the entry. Forthright disagreement is fine as long as it is civil.
My thanks,
