Breast bondage instructions

Difference between a Bruise (Contusion) and Ecchymosis It is important in any S/M play for everyone to know the difference between these terms. Contusion is a compression injury to soft tissues. Ecchymosis is the discoloration that occurs when blood collects just under the skin and is visible from the outside. You can have a contusion with no Ecchymosis especially in the breast tissues.

The Breast:

The breast is made up three different types of tissues. There is the Gland tissue, the Fibrous tissue, and the Fatty tissue.
The gland and fibrous tissues are the ones that can be bruised but not show any Ecchymosis. It is the fibrous tissue that holds the shape of the breast. When gravity takes its toll on breasts it is the fibrous tissue that is stressed.
An important fact to keep in mind is that the nipple itself has no protective fatty tissue layer. This means that the nipple will rarely exhibit any Ecchymosis.

Breast Bondage:

You can do a lot to the breasts without too much risk.
Lengths of rope that press the breast closer to the chest will normally not pose any problem. It is difficult to cut off the circulation to the breast with this type of bondage.
Watch the Brachial Plexus nerve that runs along the back on the Scapula. This nerve can be pressed in the wrong way in breast bondage.
Do not drag or force the breasts down the body (tying the breasts to the knees in a ball type bondage. You can stress the fibrous tissue.
Do not force the breasts to the outside of the body as this can also stress the fibrous tissue.
Do not apply tape to the breast. The surface skin of the breast is sensitive and thinner than most other places on the body. The nipple is also prone to micro tears when tape is pulled off. Remember that the nipple will rarely show any markings.
Do not whip or beat the breasts when they are bound. The hydrostatic pressure can tear the fibrous tissue if the “shock wave” of the beating can not flow through out the breast tissue.
