Biting

teethBiting… mmmm or ouch?

Mostly I find biting mmmm. Sometimes I want to be bitten, I want to feel the pain. Because I feel the ouch, I have a mmmm feeling. But there is a limit to the ouch. I have this fear of my skin being broken by someone’s teeth. That is one thing I am incredibly afraid of and that I would never want. Yes, I think I can safely call this a hard limit. Biting, yes, but biting me until it bleeds or even just breaking the skin? Never!

I know this might be a surprise to some especially since I have recently posted photos of my broken skin after some blood play, but let me explain…

Many years ago – probably back in my teens – I heard that a human bite can be more dangerous that the bite from any kind of animal. I heard that you might even die from a human bite. That knowledge has been stuck in my mind ever since then. I cannot remember if I have ever bitten myself really hard. I don’t think I have, because of the fear of breaking the skin and infecting myself.

When I saw the prompt for this week’s kink of the week, my first thought was: no, please, no biting. But then I realized that Master T has bitten me quite some times already. He likes to catch my nipple between his teeth and then let it slip out while he still applies some pressure. This hurts, but it does not bite down hard enough to break the skin. However, that does not mean that I do not think about broken skin the moment he bites me and the moment I feel the pain. At that very moment I both enjoy the pain and fear that he might break the skin.

This prompt has prompted me (yep, nice word play hey?) to investigate a bit more about just how dangerous human bites are.

I found this on Medscapes:

The possibility of transmission of disease through human bites must be considered. Human bites have been shown to transmit hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes simplex virus (HSV), syphilis, tuberculosis, actinomycosis, and tetanus. Evidence suggests that it is biologically possible to transmit the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) through human bites, although this is quite unlikely.

On Medline Plus, I found this:

Human bites may be more dangerous than most animal bites. There are germs in some human mouths that can cause infections that are hard to treat. If you have an infected human bite, especially on your hand, you may need to be admitted to the hospital to receive antibiotics through a vein (intravenously). In some cases, you may need surgery.

I guess I should say… I rest my case. See how dangerous a human bite can be? Yep, this definitely confirms it for me. Biting is okay but if ever my skin is broken when I’m bitten, I will totally freak out! Hard limit!
