Suspension

Suspension on hooks is a painful practice in which hooks are placed under the skin on the back, chest, arms or legs and the person is suspended on them. This is an extreme practice, which makes it possible to get both subspace and other effects. In general, suspension on hooks (Suspensions) already acquires the features of a separate subculture. Festivals are held, feature films are produced. There are associations of fans of suspension, entering the BDSM community and not self-inflicted to it. Motives for this practice can be not only sadomasochism, but also love of extreme entertainment, the desire to test yourself, to get a new experience.

 

Suspension options. In suspension it is important to ensure safety, and get the effect of pain, as well as changes in the position of the body in subsequent exposures. There are a large number of suspension options.

 

- Suicide suspension:  Vertically on the hooks, placed through the skin of the back. Despite the intimidate title (which was obtained only because of associations with the pose of the hanged man), this is a traditional kind of suspension.

 

- Crucifixion: hooks are also placed through the skin of hands.

 

- Vertical suspension for the chest, also called "O-Kee-Pa."

 

- Horizontal suspension, which is divided into two types: face upward (this pose is called "coma") and down.

 

- Lotus: quite a difficult suspension in the lotus position.

 

- Suspension by elbows, knees, calves, in the latter cases upside down.

 

Special hooks (they can be different) are passed through the skin through punctures performed by needles. Puncture areas and type of hooks are determined based on the suspension option. Number of hooks depends on the weight of a person and his level of experience. Hooks are attached to a special "rocker arm" or frame with a rope or chain. In this case, the weight of the suspended one is evenly distributed on them. Then the person is lifted into the air, can be swung and carry out various actions, for example, spanking, and so on. The duration of suspension depends on the experience of the suspended and his endurance, it can last from a few minutes to hours. Suspension can be in a group (tandem - suspension). There are also various variants of plays close to it: for example, the so-called pulling, where two people (being feet on the ground) pull each other over the ropes attached with hooks to the skin. There are extreme options of suspension - in particular, jumping on hooks.

 

Safety in suspension. Suspension is a dangerous practice requiring strict implementation of both general security measures, in particular aseptic rules, and special ones. In particular, you should pre-train with experienced masters. It is important to correctly calculate puncture areas, the type and number of hooks, and evenly load the hooks. The skin must be disinfected, the hooks must also be sterilized, all manipulations must be performed in gloves. Person performing suspension should constantly monitor the suspended's state. After removing the hooks, the punctures are treated with a disinfectant and sterile napkins are applied and fixed on them. It is necessary to have the means to help in case of an emergency situation.
