What is Stripping?
Stripping is a sexual activity in which an individual intentionally or by force gradually removes their clothing. It can be performed as part of Striptease or a Consensual Non-consent play. It can be done by both men and women.
A striptease is a consensual form of stripping. In a striptease, an individual performs an erotic dance while casually undressing. A person performing a striptease is called a ‘stripper’. A striptease is a popular event in some bars and strip clubs. Some strippers extend their services to private parties such as bachelor or bachelorette party. A striptease does not necessarily end in sex. Couples may use stripping or striptease as a form of part of foreplay. Consensual stripping is also associated with Exhibitionism. Exhibitionists may get sexual arousal when they expose their naked bodies, especially their genitals, to other persons.
A Consensual Non-consent Stripping is commonly used in a Dominant/submissive relationship. In this type of play, the submissive may be forced to self-strip. The dominant may also rip apart the clothes of the submissive. A self-strip may symbolize the complete surrender, obedience or subservience of the submissive to the dominant. Ripping off clothes is a common part of forced sex scenes. The perpetrator may get aroused by the thought of overpowering or abusing someone while the submissive may experience sexual arousal from the feeling of having no control or helplessness. A forced self-strip and rape scene may provide emotional arousal through erotic humiliation and physical pleasure through sexual masochism.
