“Love is giving someone the ability to destroy you and trusting them not to” Admin's signature line
Most who partake in Femdom (especially the emerging or optimists ) don't think twice about 'after play' or do I have all the 'medical needs' I require should an emergency arise.
You more than likely can tell me how much lube is left in the bottle/tube but do you know if your cupboards medical supplies are fully stocked?
Safety: is this responsibility of each person in the Femdom scene. Communication, physical and/or verbal, is a must during a scene to assure that the scene is not being taken to a dangerous level. It is your responsibility to know your play-partner as well as to disclose any medical problems and physical/emotional limitations you have that could lead to complications during a scene.
A first-aid kit should be kept in your toy bag if you travel to play parties Preferably two: a larger one for home and a smaller one for travel. Though all play spaces should be equipped with a Safety kit do not assume that one will be available, take your own!
Safety is an awareness of your surroundings and a healthy fear of unstable situations. By it's very nature, an emergency is an unstable situation.If everything were truly under control, nothing bad would've happened in the first place. Remember to play safe!: MissBonnie
Below is a list of suggested materials for both a First-Aid kit and an Emergency Kit for a play space. Links are also provided at the bottom of this article to assist in learning First Aid procedures and techniques.
Safer Sex practices are not foolproof but they are necessary to understand and use. The links included at the bottom of the page have a wonderful database of information to assist you in learning the tips and techniques to safer sexual contact and play.
However, what I have not been able to find in any of the materials that I have researched is an idea of what to do if you or your partner are allergic to Latex. Non-latex gloves, dams, and condoms have not been proven effective in protecting a person from AIDS or other blood pathogens. I have addressed this issue with many Physicians and the AIDS Awareness groups and was again told that Latex is the only barrier recommended to assist in stopping the spread of such disease.
In order to both be protected and not suffer adverse reactions to Latex I recommended a double or triple layer of protective barrier, be it condom or gloves. If the 'giver' 'fucker' Top', pick one, is allergic to Latex, a non-latex product can be used under the latex barrier to keep the latex off the skin. If the 'reciever' 'fuckee' 'bottom', again your choice, is allergic to latex place the non-latex product over the latex barrier to protect his/her skin. If both of you are allergic, sandwich the latex in between non-latex products so that neither party comes in contact with the latex.
Double wrapping is always recommended even if there is no allergy to latex. Things do break under the stress of passion and the safer you are the more fun it can be made to be!
What's in your Femdom First Aide Kit:
Additional things you might like to consider including in your kit it away from home:
If you're playing in a public space it's always nice to keep a robe in your kit. It helps a lot for after… when you're done with your blanket but may not want to get dressed yet. If you play pretty heavy and there is usually blood involved. Robes are great alternative to damaging “good clothes” Even without the blood it's nice to be able to wander around comfortably while you're “coming down”.
Make a difference, learn first aid today.
Did you know that over 6,000 people die of out of hospital Cardiac Arrest every year. That's 18 people every day. If you were the first person on the scene of one of the cardiac arrests would you know what to do?
The Red Cross is the world's largest provider of first aid training. You can rely on them to offer you courses which are of the highest standard and delivered by high quality, experienced instructors.
