Erotic Sexual Denial
Erotic sexual denial, aka orgasm denial, is a practice that can be used to increase the state of sexual arousal. It is also commonly practiced in association with BDSM and sexual Bondage. Erotic sexual denial can also be another name for or variant of orgasm control practices.
One form of erotic sexual denial is the reduction or deprivation of all genital stimulation. To ensure a complete absence of genital stimulation, a Chastity device is sometimes used as a physical barrier to genital touch or full erection.
Another common practice would be; "tease and denial" this describes a situation in which a person's is stimulated until he or she is nearing the the point of orgasm, and then at that point, the stimulation of the genitals is reduced or stopped, so as to keep the recipient at the edge of orgasm, but without the promise of orgasm at the end.
If an orgasm happens to occur after the stimulation is removed, it generally brings less pleasure than usual, and would be thought of as a "ruined orgasm", as opposed to being a "denied orgasm".
Depending on the individual relationship, those involved, might be repeatedly teased to the point of orgasm, but without actual orgasm, causing feelings of intense arousal and psychological need. To increase the control an orgasm a partner may often use restraints.
A related practice is that of the deconstructed orgasm, in which stimulation and arousal is conducted at a very slow pace, allowing the 'stimulator' to obtain feedback from the 'stimulatee' (generally spoken, but conceivably obtained by means of body language or measuring certain bodily responses and functions). Depending upon the accuracy of the feedback, the progress towards eventual release can be judged more accurately than would be the case in an unfettered encounter
Orgasm denial practices can allow a Dom/Domme to exercise control and training over their Sub. Dominant lovers can use this practice to experience enjoyable and sometimes intensely craved feelings of sexual control and erotic power. Submissive lovers can also use this practice to help them with their experience, this whole activity can be used as a form of sexual objectification and erotic control.
