The Encyclopedia Of Smut: Q Is For Queening

Apr 25, 2013 | Posted by Ottimo Massimo in Fetish

20130226tssThough many choose to call it facesitting for the directness of the term, we've always preferred the elegance of queening and the royal connotations it brings with it. There's power in the word, as if a trump card is being laid on top of your deck, and even the lowly face becomes a throne for a special someone.

Memories of Matriarchy

One of our favorite facets of BDSM is that it makes us feel connected to perverts of the past. We may have fancy names, gadgets, and studios dedicated to the advanced erotic arts these days, but everything we do has been around for ages, and the historic legends about queening are especially numerous. The Wikipedia page for facesitting has a few choice images dating from the early 20th and mid-19th centuries, but we've heard quite a few (generally unsupported though fascinating and highly probable) tales of queening traditions throughout civilization! There are kinky tales of Victorian mistresses sitting upon their servants faces for punishments and/or adultery-free relief; the same thing is said of powerful medieval households as well. There were allegedly brothels in feudal Japan stocked with male faces for rent; the same is said of China, specifically in the courts. Even the tale of the Sirens from Homer's "Odyssey" has been interpreted as a reference to queening!

Again, these are only baseless rumors from a few dubious online sources, so it's reasonable to assume that these are fantasies dreamed up a gent who wants a countess to crouch on his face. Nonetheless, the one thing these legends all have in common--and something we've noticed in modern depictions and discussions of the act--is the consistent emphasis on female pleasure and power, and that's something that makes queening unique. Gay porn certainly has boys enjoying a good squat on a mouth, but on our side of the fence, we rarely (if ever) see a man smother a woman with his buns.

Smothered in Ecstasy

What makes queening sexy and exiting? Let us count the ways!

For the sitter: · All pleasure belongs to you. · More importantly, all control belongs to you, and you may take advantage of every part of your partner's face: lips, tongue, nose, chin, eyelashes, eyebrows, it's all yours to smear with spit and come. · For those who love the thrill of dominance, there's no better position for humiliation, and you may shackle your lover with gadgets or keep them pinned down with the sheer weight of your body.

And for the sat upon: · The darkness is all-encompassing and your whole world is your mistress's flesh. · As their body dangles over your head, their wet scents fills your nose and soon floods it as taste and smell become one when they press down. · There's something oddly freeing about being used in such a way; even when having your own genitals denied any touch, the privilege of being a toy can be powerfully ego stroking. After all, the submissive party is often the holder of secret yet ultimate power.

QueeningSupport Queening Like a Boss

Now, this might sound crazy, but bear with us: faces weren't really meant to be sat upon. Furthermore, your knees and thighs can only handle so much crouching and grinding before they tire out. With all that in mind, it's important to be careful when sitting on someone's face, for everybody's safety. We found a beautifully-written guide on this exact topic, and among the many tips and techniques offered there, the author urges you to consider the prominence of your stool's nose, any stubble on their face, the presence of wounds or sores, and any history of asthma or other respiratory issues. All of these variables will change the way you sit, how you distribute your weight, and what parts of your nether regions you press into their palate. No matter what, your leg strength will come into play.

If you'd like a little assistance with this business, there is furniture to help you! Queening stools (seen in use above) are nifty little cushioned platforms that cradle the head and hold the face just barely above the rim of a padded open seat. They allow the sitter to give her legs a break without dropping all her weight on the face below--in addition, this helps her pelvic floor and levator ani muscles relax, thus exposing more of her labia and ass to the mouth for easy worshipping. Smotherboxes take this to another level by completely enclosing the human stool's head inside a box that acts as a sensory-deprivation tank, thus enhancing the scents and flavors of the seated person above.

Sounds like some clever stuff, huh? Thinking you want some queening equipment for your home? If you do, but you're concerned about others seeing it, note that many models can be easily taken apart and stored flat. If that doesn't allay your fears, one website offers this help: "To enable discretion, a 'Pilates Exercise Stool' label is included with your chair."

Mmm, Pilates.
