I know many Dommes out there would describe themselves as sensualists. Something that I have experienced over the years is the use tactile pleasure and discomfort on a fairly regular basis. On the pleasure side it's often been used as part of my humiliation, tease & denial, or even as a reward. On the discomfort side it's been more... hrm... pure suffering?
Materials that come to mind that I think feel really good:
-Fur (big shock here)
Materials that I don't think feel quite as good but are interesting nonetheless:
-Certain soft Leathers (kidskin, lambskin, calfskin, etc.)
It puzzles me a bit that most of these materials only exist in women's clothing, but that's something I wrote about back in March. What makes sense is that many of the Dommes I have met seem to harbor a lot of preference towards materials that feel good on the skin. In play, when attempting to tease me, these similar materials have been used to evoke a positive result.
They make items for women like fur bra liners/nipple warmers and plenty of pleasing undergarments. I'm curious if any Dommes out there have ever used pleasurable materials in clothing as a reward for their sub or to keep their sub in a state of arousal?
e.g. undershirts or underwear of a particular material or having some of a pleasurable material attached inside their undergarments over the nipples or genitals with hemming tape, etc.
On the flip-side of this are materials that are rough and irritating to the skin. Certain wools and felts can be quite scratchy and rough but going even farther, what about materials like burlap and sand paper? I've experienced some of these as some rather torturous play before but it's never gone beyond that. I have read of cases of Dommes gluing/taping/stitching some of the unpleasant materials over the nipples inside of undershirts so that their subs would have constantly aroused and raw, tender nipples but these cases have been few and far between.
I can only imagine spending a day at work with burlap squares constantly rubbing my nipples and/or genitals. That would be quite unpleasant. I also have seen certain sissy maid outfits that are made out of stiff, rough, and scratchy materials to be used as punishment (these will usually lock on).
I'm curious if anyone else out there has integrated these types of things into every-day use or if they think that either of these cases would be a good idea?
