What is impact play?

“Impact play” is a term used in the BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, and Masochism) community to describe a type of sexual play that involves striking the body with various objects, such as whips, paddles, floggers, canes, or hands. Impact play aims to create a pleasurable sensation through pain and stimulation.

The intensity of impact play can range from light taps to intense strikes, depending on the individual’s preferences and comfort level. The activity may be consensual and involve a power exchange dynamic between the participants, with one person taking on a dominant role and the other a submissive role.

It’s important to note that BDSM activities should always be practiced with the utmost care and communication between partners to ensure safety and consent.

Before engaging in impact play or any other BDSM activity, partners should have a clear understanding of each other’s boundaries and limits and establish a safe word or another communication method to ensure that the activity can be stopped if necessary.

Impact play is a type of BDSM activity that involves striking the body of a consenting partner with various objects such as hands, paddles, whips, floggers, canes, or other implements. The purpose of impact play can vary depending on the individuals involved and their preferences. Still, it is often used to create physical sensations and to explore power dynamics within a sexual context.

Impact play can be done in various ways, ranging from light and sensual to intense and painful, depending on the participants’ desires. Engaging in impact play with clear communication and consent is essential to ensure that all parties involved have a safe and enjoyable experience.

How do the different types of impact play compare?

  • Ohhh, my favorite subject.
  • Spanking: close and intimate and great for warm-up. A hand-shaped bruise is a bonus.
  • Flogging is like a great massage with a string. It hurts, but you never want it to stop.
  • Crop: light stings up to full-on whacks. Precise and perfect for most body parts.
  • Cane: an evil sting that can become very addictive. Lovely marks.
  • Whip: anything from a light sting to a mind-numbing blow.
  • Tiger spatula
  • Surprisingly evil, it leaves a beautiful heart-shaped mark on virgin skin.

What does impact mean for you?

What is the definition of an “impact” player?

There is no ‘official definition,’’ but the generally held view of what an impact player is joins a game already in progress, and his (/her) introduction positively affects the course of the game and, ultimately, its outcome.

In simple terms, an impact player would often be introduced as a substitute, usually in the final period of a game which is not going the way of his team, in the hope and expectation that the player will change the way it is going and achieve a positive result for the team.

What immediately comes to your mind when you see/hear the word “impact”?

Sudden impact is the first thought that comes to my mind, but not because it was also the film title for a movie starring Clint Eastwood. The Gauntlet from The Gauntlet (1977)

Impact is an action word just begging for a modifier.

 SE Notice I said “word,” not verb. It becomes a little tricky. The word impact is full of consequences, pragmatically and semiotically. That’s about as far as I want to go into that because I’m not a linguist and should not pretend to be one using those highfalutin terms. But if you are one, let me know if I have messed up, will you please? 

Do the words transitive and intransitive mean anything to you? Yeah, I thought so, but not to me either. Definition of TRANSITIVE as in transitive verbs and intransitive verbs.

Well, “impact” is one of those trans-gender words; you know where the door swings both ways, in and out? It’s just like the kind restaurants have between the kitchen and the dining room.

Here’s the real kicker: it’s also like a hermaphrodite, a little bit this and a little bit that; it depends on which end you are looking at. That’s stretching it a bit; I’ll admit to that. I hope I haven’t offended you all because of it.

The impact can be a noun, verb-trans., or a verb in-trans. It all depends on how you use it in a sentence. see: impact

The word sudden and impact go together like two peas in a pod. That’s how I see it in my mind, at least; they both modify each other, like “the impact was sudden and (it was) felt very deeply” and, of course, “the sound of the sudden impact as the two cars collided was palpable from over fifty feet away.”

A mental reverberation occurs as I decode this phrase into “picture-speak.”

 See: Let Picture Speak. It’s not exactly like that; it’s not how I see it inside my head.

I think in pictures. I know, I know, everybody does. But some people (like me) tend to do it a little more than most. Visual thinkers, they call us. See Visual thinking – Wikipedia sees Linguistic relativity – Wikipedia.

Pre-linguistic cognition? How Real Are Proto Languages??? It’s not that I think in terms of a proto-language archetype or as a proponent of the noumenal worldview. see: Noumenon – Wikipedia. Turning one’s visual images into mental constructs based on linguistic interpretation is a complicated subject to look up. see Meaning and Visual Metaphor, and if you liked that, you would love this: But, unfortunately, this is different from what I am talking about, dang-it! I need help finding it!

This is getting close, but I wanted to say something different: Our Brains See Words as Pictures. 

Getting hotter but not spontaneously combustible yet: See 

We Use Words to Talk. Why Do We Need Them to Think?

Damn, good question.

I have spent two hours trying to find a scientific explanation for how I think, and I can’t find one!

How Vision Works and, close but no cigar.

And if I am going to include Vanderbilt, I must also have MIT, another “Ivy League” institution of higher learning. See:

How do the different types of impact play compare?

I must preface this answer with a note that of all the different activities contained within the realm of BDSM, impact play is one of the ones I feel the least strongly about.

I mean…I never request impact play. It’s not something I enjoy outside of a few particular situations that are entirely about the circumstances of the impact play and not the impact play itself. It’s something I tolerate because my partners enjoy it.

A few weeks ago, I was doing a scene that involved impact play when I wasn’t expecting it (usually, it’s a rope date, but this time, my Top decided to throw in some impact play). Although I had enjoyed the scene previously, I can only describe myself as “sullen” once impact play was introduced.

So…with that in mind, I can give you my perspective on the various implements and styles of impact play.

Generally, impact play is divided into stingy vs thuddy, which are different sensations other instruments produce.

A sting is a piercing, cutting stripe of pain, a burning blaze of heat primarily felt on the skin’s surface. A fast blow usually leaves Sting with a negligible impact area.

 When marks are produced, they tend to be thin lines, weals, and cuts to the skin. In patches, it can leave a tingly sensitive residue in its wake.

Thud is a deep, penetrating blow, felt deep in the muscle and flesh, less so in the skin. A heavier toy makes a thud, usually a slower-moving blow with a broader impact area. When producing marks, they tend to be larger pink, red, or bruised areas.

Stingy instruments include whips, stiff paddles, canes, rods, an open palm, and most kitchen implements (spatulas, icing spreaders, wooden spoons).

Thuddy instruments include floggers, fists, prison straps, police batons, and metal pipes.

The dangers of stingy vs thuddy play are different, of course. Stinging play tends to risk infection because of broken skin, while thudding play risks muscle damage or damaged organs and bones (if you get too intense).

At this point, I’m at a loss as to how to answer this objectively because, as I’m fond of saying, preferences are individual; while I hate stingy implements, some people genuinely love them! So fuck objectivity, here’s what I think.

Stinging pain is punishment pain. It’s sharp and fiery, overwhelms the senses, and doesn’t give time for the bottom to think or absorb the feeling before it strikes again. It’s hard to take while staying still and remaining silent (which I like doing) and encourages the bottom to wriggle or try to escape. When someone uses a stingy implement on me, every thought of graceful submission leaves me, and I want to whine, complain, and get away from it. For people who enjoy stingy pain, that makes it exciting.

On the other hand, thuddy pain is slow, like fog. It lands and dissipates like drops of ink into water. You feel it deep in your flesh and bones, and it lasts. I find it easy to relax into thuddy pain and surrender to the experience. I feel incredibly sensual and graceful under thuddy impact play.

But of course, it’s up to the user. You don’t have to like the stuff I like. I want some weird shit!

In what sport can one player have the most impact on the outcome of a game?

In what sport can one player have the most impact on the outcome of a game?

I’m answering more logically.

In what team sport can one player have the most impact on the outcome of a game?

Games that have goalies – ice hockey, field hockey, soccer, but less Gaelic Football.
Games that have a low number of players – basketball.
Games with a pivotal player include American Football quarterback, Australian Football ruckman, baseball pitcher, cricket bowler, and rugby kicker.

In what sport can one player have the most impact on the outcome of a game?

There are two answers to this question, IMO.

The first answer is basketball because fewer players are on the court than in other team sports, so one dominant player can decide the game.

The other answer, as noted in different responses to this question, is that there are sports where one position is more important than the others because it is the nexus through which all activity happens. It is the pitcher in baseball, the goalie in hockey, or the quarterback in football. A player at one of those positions with a dominating performance can have a more significant impact than a dominant player at a lesser position.

What does it mean to have an impact on the world?

It is food to feed the ego, to sustain its sense of existence.

People who invent things such as AI, Big Data, or that so-called ‘Metaverse’ thing try to feed the ego to make themselves feel they have impacted how human beings live their lives.

Everyone should have the right to choose how they want to live their life instead of being manipulated by these super egoistic people.

How many people in the world play Genshin Impact?

Genshin was released on four different platforms (PS4, PC, Android, and iOS), and they all have an extra player.

In Playstation 4/5, the total player count is around 5,8 million players, based on the Gamestat website. Meanwhile, it has 10+ million downloads on Google Play but is unknown on the App Store (though it’s still ranked 

relatively high in the RPG genre). On PC, it is untraceable since the download client was from MiHoYo’s servers.

RememberRemember that this is only for non-PRC regions since nobody got the data for players there except for MiHoYo. And since the game is also huge there, expect that the numbers could reach 10–20 million players (this is just a low estimate), but I suspect that the numbers were much more than that, which could go 30+ million players.

So yeah, the estimated players for Genshin could be around 50–100 million players worldwide, including China, and across all platforms.

What is the need for an impact test?

All the tests on aggregates are carried out to judge the response of aggregates to different kinds of loads that the aggregates will be subjected to during their service life.

The impact test needs to evaluate aggregates’ toughness, which is nothing but the ability of aggregates to resist sudden or impact loading.

We must evaluate this resistance to impact because, during service life, the aggregates will be subjected to this load (aggregates will be subjected to effects after the speed breaker or when the vehicle is moving on an undulating road, etc.). So, by carrying out the test, we evaluate the response of aggregates to sudden loading. If the result is good, we use those aggregates in pavement. If not, aggregates are rejected.

What does it mean to have an impact on someone?

Should I play Genshin Impact?

Genshin Impact is a gacha game that falls under the following categories of games: exploration, action, and role-playing. It’s heavily inspired by Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which brings in a memorable cast of characters as you travel the world of Teyvat in search of your sibling. It is a strictly cooperative player-vs-environment (no PvP), with up to three other team members helping you in your ventures if you choose co-op.

If that is not your thing, don’t play it.

Don’t play if the thought of loot boxes makes you physically lurch.

Only donate if you have the self-discipline to stop you from chucking hundreds or thousands of dollars into a game.

Don’t play if you are allergic to grinding in video games.

If you want a complete experience from start to finish, don’t play it (as it is still currently under development and will likely be in continuous development for almost a decade thanks to it being a games-as-a-service model of play).

But if this is your thing, and you need to keep the whole random number generation in check, and you want to experience the story as the game develops, then play Genshin Impact! I play on three servers (TW, Asia, and America), and I’ve been playing it almost exclusively since around September or October last year.

What is an impact or a nonimpact printer?

Imagine a bureaucrat with a rubber stamp to approve things. That bureaucrat is impact printing; they’re physically pushing the ink from where it is to where they want it to be.

Now imagine a graffiti artist spray painting a wall. It is nonimpact printing; they’re not putting any pressure on the painted surface, but the image still appears.

So impact printing would be things like traditional printing presses, typewriters, and dot matrix printers, and nonimpact would be inkjets, laser printers, and thermal printers.

What are impact and non-impact printers?

Impact printers are those that mark with needle and ink over paper from the head of the printers.

  • Dot-matrix printers
  • Daisy-Wheel Printers
  • and line printer
  • Typewriter

Are Impact Printer

Non-impact printer – Computer Definition. A printer that prints without banging a ribbon onto paper. Laser, LED, inkjet, solid ink, thermal wax transfer, and dye sublimation printers are examples of non-impact printers.

Inkjet, thermal & laser printers are non-impact printers.
