S&M (Wooden) Horse Riding
I’d never heard of Riding the Horse until I started filling out the BDSM checklist that I sent to Alexandra long ago.
Here’s her summary:
Riding the “horse” (crotch torture): This is a device on which the submissive is placed where a pointed edge digs into the private area while his own body weight does the crushing. Usually they are built/adjusted so that with legs fully extended, the pain is alleviated, setting up a battle between aching legs and genital pain. I have to admit, it sounds like a good idea to me!
From the Blacksteel Institute:
Riding the wooden horse or wooden mare was a common punishment for soldiers (usually for rioting or drinking). One example was a straight, narrow, horizontal pole, standing twelve feet long. Sometimes the upper edge of the board or pole was acutely sharpened to intensify the cruelty. The soldier was set astride this board, with his hands tied behind his back. Often a heavy weight was tied to each foot, as was jocularly said, “to stop his horse from throwing him.”
By a submissive (I forget where):
It is the tiring of the leg muscles, which eventually force the torture on the submissive. As they stand on their toes the calf muscles and toes will cramp and the legs may begin to tremble. When the burning strain is too much the victim will settle onto the pony and try to find a comfortable position. While the legs are resting the crotch is bearing the brunt of the torment.
I’ll confess that situations where bondage and S&M converge are always the most arousing for me.
I’ve read of several fairly complicated means of building some sort of Riding Horse. A few require attachments to the ceiling. He others involve building complicated apparatus.
But I can’t help but hope that someone knows how to engineer this without too much fuss and bother.
