Easter having put me in the mood for nailing things, I decided it was time for some more CBT needle play. I wanted to combine this with objectifying and disembodying sol’s cock and balls, and “stake out” sol’s genitals.
At the time we did this scene I didn’t know that this type of “stake out” had a name: butterfly boarding. Which itself is a form of impalement play, and of course is also edgeplay. I agree with Mistress Sade (who’s wonderfully illustrated post I discovered after this scene, when I went to write my own post up) who says you need an experienced teacher. It’s now four years since I put my first needles into flesh, two years since we started attending needle play workshops and one year since alexpierce instructed us re male genital piercing. Since then we’d been enjoying adding to our CBT needles experience (see here and here). We were ready to try “butterfly boarding”.
The board can be any flat material to which the male’s scrotum can be nailed or pinned with needles. Some kinksters even use “electric butterfly boards” (also here). Hygienically you want something you can throw out, afterwards, as there is probably going to be seriously . Midori says she’s seen “dense foam core to nylon cutting board material sawed to shape used for this [and also] the gauge of the needles would make a difference in terms of the material for the board”, which is worth remembering.
Sol cut a panel from the (unused clean) blue foam mat from our camping kit, and then cut a round hole into that piece. I didn’t measure it, but it needs to be individually sized. db noted re his scene with Mistress Sade:
“I then bought the foam-core and cut out the hole. Working very precisely, using a ruler, compass and Xacto knife, I cut a two inch round hole in the 3/16 inch thick foam-core board”
Our foam was not quite sturdy enough, so we hauled out the wooden Ball Presenter. Placed under the foam, it would hold sol’s genitals in place while I practiced some fiendish needle play:
Here’s the final installation:

We then lay the blue foam panel on top of the Ball Presenter and sol pulled his cock and balls through the hole. Once he was lying flat and comfortable on our bed, I restrained his hands via the cuffs to the chains above the bed, and I tied some black hemp rope around the foam panel to keep it in place:
I’ve always loved the way the Ball Presenter objectifies and disembodies sol’s cock and balls, and the foam did the same. I equally loved db’s description of his own scene, when Mistress Sade:
“pulled my genitals through the hole in the board. The butterfly was pulled through the cocoon of the hole and emerged into the world. NOW, that is the definition of an offering – her own little toy butterfly presented on a white platter”
I chose 23 gauge needles in part because I wanted something shorter and 23g are kind of “middle range” re thickness (see this post for our explorations with gauges). db also noted that Mistress Sade used “20-25 gauge needles in a variety of different colored needle hubs”. I wanted a uniformity of color hub, so was happy with the blue hubs of the 23 gauge, as they matched the color of the foam.
For a good “how to” post about needle play, read this one. I cleaned my hands and surfaces with antibacterial wash (I didn’t worry about wearing gloves because we are fluid bonded) and then wiped over the area I planned to work with alcohol swaps:
I began to insert needles in an upright position at the very base of his balls:
Sol found those first needles “sharp and ouchy but bearable”. I continued to insert them around the base of his balls, but soon realized I was going to encounter a major problem. The skin of his balls constantly moved, expanding and contracting. The needles were literally being pulled out of the foam base.
I altered my game plan – rather than thinking of each needle as something static that once placed didn’t move, I now went back and slightly moved the tip of each needle in the foam, every time sol’s balls changed size:
Interestingly when I looked at the foam pad after the scene those first needles had been moved up to fifteen times. But the new game plan worked. I was able to continue my “stake out”:
Every now and then I would use another alcohol swab:
The final ring of needles around his scrotum number nineteen:
As you can see, sol still has a great hard on. It looked so amazing with the needles around the balls that I masturbated him for a minute or so, moving his foreskin up and down his straining shaft:
I knew his hardon was amplified by the Ball Presenter. Shortly after sol politely informed me that his balls were becoming too painful from the lack of blood flow, so as this pain was not the point of this particular scene I undid the Ball Presenter underneath the foam pad … you can see a corner sticking out in the photo below:
While that stopped the pain, the blue foam was still providing enough restriction to help maintain his erection. And that wasn’t the only thing. He said later that after about 16 needles he started to relax and breathe through each needle’s insertion and process it as sensation rather than pain. The resulting sensation was simply erotic … thus the hard on remained!
But as you can see in the photo below, when I tried to insert needles down the side of his cock, the hardon really caused me problems:
His cock was lifting and pulling the needles out from the foam. So I commanded him to get rid of the hardon. He did a great job because a moment later his cock looked like this!:
I went back to work, placing the needles along his shaft. Sol didn’t find these as intense as the needles in the scrotum. 30-something male (from femdom-resource) wrote this about his butterfly boarding scene with Lady Lydia:
“Putting the needles in place down the shaft is quite intense from a psychological perspective, but doesn’t actually hurt as much as you’d think it might. However, the final few in the head of the cock, the two yellow and six blue needles behind them in this shot, really do hurt as they go in. Luckily they were done at the end, when I was already awash with endorphins and adrenalin”
As I placed the needles up the left side of his cock I noticed we had our first blood spots for the scene:
alexpierce prepared me for blood when placing / removing needles from the male genitals, and I’ve always been grateful for that warning. We don’t mind a bit of blood play, and neither do our play partners, but it’s unnerving the first couple of times, you do worry you’ve caused damage. But I’ve learned now that sol bruises, then heals, and we’ve never done any permanent damage.
I’d been pulling sol’s foreskin forward, the last couple of needles … and now it was time to place the two needles actually into his foreskin:
Don’t they look stunning?
Sol said later those foreskin needles placed him in a real predicament … he wanted to be hard but not too hard because of pulling the shaft needles out of the foam, and at the same time he didn’t want to get soft because the foreskin needles pulled on the foreskin:
Kind of “predicament impalement” instead of “predicament bondage” *grin*. Here’s almost the final product, just one needle to go yet:
What was I feeling during all of this? Extremely focused. Turned on, absolutely, but focused and careful and in control and powerful and focused … and amazed at how (as alexpierce once told me) putting needles through the male shaft and foreskin is truly like putting needles through butter … so smooth a glide, so perfect the impalement as each needle tip was caught bright and beautiful and pure, within the bright light of the camper’s torch on my forehead:
I think db gets things right in his description of his scene with Mistress Sade:
“Even now I can only imagine the sense of power, and pure sadistic pleasure she must have felt. Slowly pushing the needle through that most sensitive part of this male’s most precious and sensitive organ. I ponder the elastic resistance that the tissue and skin gave as she pierced through, then the sound of the crunch as the needle continued on into the foam of the board. It must have been delicious. My conscious and senscient submission to it was delicious as well”
And here’s my final needle, inserted into the foreskin at the top, right near the frenum:
A final twiddle of the scrotum needles to make all were in place and upright:
A final play with the foreskin / frenum needle:
And here’s the finished “stake out”:
The final number of needles was 34. I was happy with this, for a first “butterfly boarding”. Sol, meanwhile was still flying from the endorphins….
After taking some photos I began to remove the needles:
Blood was minimal until this one in the shaft came out:
I’d nicked a vein. After we’d wiped the worst of the blood up, I masturbated sol:
Who came very quickly …. funny that!
His orgasm was “extremely intense, it felt like we’d been building up to it four hours”. We quickly cleaned up and fell back into bed … it was all pretty intense for me, too
In terms of aftercare, I photographed the trouble spot a few times, to provide a visual reminder of an area to avoid:
Then we cleaned sol off and applied Savlon to all the open wounds. The next day sol’s “marks” from that one spot looked pretty impressive:
But there’s no pain. The only soreness is in the scrotum “if you pinch the skin, it’s hurts a bit … similar to recently when I spent 24 hours in a ball stretcher”
So would we do it again. “Of course ” says sol. “Absolutely”, says Ms160, “that was fun!”
