Testing: Ignore this entry

Testing, ignore this entry. [Thread drift: Thanks to Eric we're back on mummification...]

comments in ascending chronological order (reverse):

Ignore, ignore, ignore...

Ignore? Yeah, right, Dan. Like any of your readers would mind a command like that. ;-)

This is an ignorable comment with some "characters" that 'need' to be escaped!

And hopefully this comment will go in with a regular login.

It is quite possible that this could become one of your longer threads. ;-)

Maybe if we were to spread a rumor that this thread is really about mummification. After all, what do you do with your bottom once you have her wrapped up?

Well, in his December 31 diary entry, Peter Throckmorton suggested:

Tuning fork, Hitachi magic wand, clothes pins, a little of this and that.

Hmmm... Maybe ignorance is bliss...

Being chemically bent, I wonder if an enterprising BDSM anesthesiologist exists?

The careful use of d-tubocurarine (curare) might excite some folks since it would leave the "bottom" completely intellectually aware, completely accessible, and totally paralyzed.

Call it "sans saran mummification."

Those who favor "safe words," of course, need not apply.

I remember seeing some discussion on the topic ages ago, the general consensus on the forum I was reading was that anesthesiology was risky enough that even beyond the lack of safewords that violated the whole "safe, sane and consensual" thing.

Not that people aren't playing with almost anything somewhere. On curare, does that affect the unconscious muscles as well? I'm having trouble imagining how you keep enough of the vital organs protected to not have really bad long-term side effects.

Extract curare is a mixture of things and is pretty dangerous. d-tubocurarine is rather specific and acts almost completely on voluntary muscles. That would allow for some "reaction" to stimuli.

Safe, sane, and consensual?

Safety is not always a primary (secondary or tertiary) concern when pushing your personal limits..... see the next comment.

Sanity is in the eyes of those who are pushing personal limits........ paddling the Ocoee at WELL beyond flood stage could be called insane and is remarkably unsafe, Dan, but would you have missed that? Didn't you grow and know more about yourself from the experience, despite the risk?

Consensual...... as with all BDSM, a base trust level is essential.

I shouldn't have read this thread...

#Comment made: 2002-02-21 05:31:16+00 by: Dan Lyke

Conceded that sanity and safety are relative.

And consensual... well... There's an awful lot that gets done because of implied expectations.

Okay, I resign that argument on all counts.
