What is Sploshing?
Sploshing is a form of Wet and Messy play in which foods are directly applied or smeared on the skin for sexual arousal and gratification. People who engage in Sploshing activities are called Sploshers. Both men and women can join and enjoy Sploshing parties or play.
Theoretical/ Physical/ Psychological Background
The practice of Sploshing may have sexual or non-sexual connotations. It can be done as a performance or part of foreplay. Foods used in this kind of activity usually have vibrant colors and with sticky, slippery appearance. These include vanilla sauce, honey, pudding, chocolate syrup, tomato sauce, baked beans, whipped cream, curry sauce. Condiments such as custard, mustard, ketchup, soy sauce and fish sauce can also be used.
Foods are smeared, poured, thrown or wiped directly into the skin or over the clothes. Some use Sploshing to reinforce Dominant/submissive roles. The dominant may force the submissive to either play or masturbate while being covered in foods. It is also possible that the dominant throws or spits foods at the submissive.
The submissive may experience sexual arousal from the feeling of being dirtied and messy. A Dominant may get aroused by the thought of having the authority to make someone dirty or play in filth. The image of an attractive woman or man covered in food can also provide a powerful visual stimulant that can cause arousal.
Sploshing is generally classified under fetish play rather than BDSM. Enthusiasts are attracted to it for many reasons. Some enjoy the food aspect of it and may be into feeding or gaining fetishism. The sense of rubbing various foods onto the skin to trigger and tease erogenous zones is also appealing. Different foods can be heated or chilled and be a part of temperature play scenes as well.
Practicality/ Do’s and Don’ts
Sploshing participants can either be naked or wearing a cloth. They may also choose to wear cosplay. Pure white attires such as schoolgirl uniform, bridal dress, office suits and casual clothes can increase the visual appeal of Sploshing. The viscosity and flow of the food can influence the duration of the play. Some foods tend to stick to the skin than others.
Like other BDSM scenes, Sploshing should be done with the consent of all the involved parties. All participants should have negotiated and agreed on a set of rules and limits, as well as safeword and action, before engaging in the activity.
Because the practice involves food, there is always a chance of an allergic reaction. The participants should have a list of allowed and banned foods. Sploshing can create a wet and messy environment, increasing the risk of injuries caused by slip and fall.
Related Fetishes and Practices
Sploshing is closely related to Food Play, WAM, Nyotaimori and sitophilia. It can be a part of various temperature & sensation play scenes and even be included in bondage. Rubbing a food onto a submissive’s body that they find gross or repulsive may also be a punishment for them.
