An Introduction to Figging

With figging you send her to all-out orgasm!

Figging is a centuries old practice that involves insertion of ginger root inside your (or your partner's) anus. When ginger root is peeled (and it has to be peeled to work), and inserted inside the anus, chemicals in the ginger itself act to stimulate the walls of the anal cavity.

If you have carved the ginger properly into a butt-plug like shape, it will stay in place for long enough to create a stinging, but pleasurably warming sensation. Some people swear by the practice, and adore the feeling that ginger insertion provides.

Where Does Figging Come From?

Who on earth discovered that inserting peeled ginger root inside your anus and leaving it there for extended periods of time could be a sexually enjoyable experience?

Well, we don't know for certain, but there are some theories.

Some say that the practice was invented by Victorian men as a punishment for women who had behaved badly. In other words, it was a patriarchal tool to make them feel uncomfortable. Maybe it declined when men realized that the people they sought to punish were actually enjoying the sensation?

Is Figging Safe? How Can I Try It?

As far as we know, inserting peeled ginger into the human anus is much safer than unprotected anal sex. It may also be safer than inserting butt plugs made from processed plastic or rubber, or even condoms. However, it needs to be done properly to get the full benefit.

Any store bought ginger will do fine. Try to carve it into a butt plug shape, not much larger than your thumb. Adding an elongated "handle" also helps to insert and extract the plug. Then wash it thoroughly and you're ready to begin.

Getting the Most from Ginger Insertion Sessions

Now, ask you partner to gently insert the ginger into your anus (it's more fun if someone else is playing along). There's no need to lube up the root. Just slowly push it in and leave it. If you've carved it carefully, the plus shape will keep it stable for as long as necessary.

What About the Vagina. Does that Work Too?

For some reason, ginger insertion tends to be done anally, but it can also be tried on your partner's vagina. If you try this, you'll probably need to carve a larger plug - something similar to a dildo will be fine. And include a larger handle to insert it properly.

If you're lucky, the ginger will weave its spell, sending your girlfriend from mild tingling to gentle warmth, to all-out orgasm in a few minutes.

Don't be afraid to experiment, either. A double vaginal-anal figging session can be amazing, so let your sexual imagination roam free.
