Needle play

Needle play or play piercing, in BDSM, is the practice of inserting needles under the skin of the submissive. Each needle is carefully pushed into the skin, passes the skin and the subcutaneous layers just underneath the surface, and is pushed out again a short distance from where it was inserted, such that its tip reemerges.


The primary danger in play piercing is infection. Needle play is considered edge play and care should be taken to follow all appropriate safety precautions when engaging in play in order to avoid injury or infection. Players will want to use only sterile needles approved for medical use, and not reuse them after they have been used. Used needles are dangerous and should be disposed of in a sharps container.

The skin surface to be pierced should be disinfected first.
