Class Handout Rough Body Play: A slap is a tickle.

YES

  • Below the collar bone (above the breasts)
  • Upper arms
  • Forearms (potentially uncomfortable to striker)
  • Butt
  • Inner and outer thighs (note that inner thighs bruise much more easily than outer)
  • Shoulder blades (as long as they’re flattened)

MAYBE

  • Breasts (repeated punching can break down breast tissue)
  • IT band Hip/butt (can be a way to drop someone quickly, which might not be appreciated unless pre-negotiated)
  • Genitals (this should be specifically negotiated and typically more than a light slap or pinch would be a hard limit for most people)
  • Stomach (must be tensed first to avoid damage to organs)

NO

  • Head, face, neck (too many delicate bones)
  • Joints (such as elbows or knees)
  • Lower back (risk of kidney damage)
  • Sternum
