"How important is music for your play?"
For me, getting the right soundtrack can transform a scene. Whenever I engage in deeper S/m play I use music as an extra toy/weapon/implement. More so when I get the chance to plan out a scene in detail and understand a partners mindset. Getting into their head is so important when wanting to get the most out of a scene. You could even say that a good soundtrack is like a head-getter-opener-tool. When used correctly you can get right in there. The same goes for aftercare, I always have a separate go to playlist for aftercare after a brutal scene.
For rope play though, I find it a bit different. Equally as important no doubt, but the focus for the soundtrack shifts a little. What I mean is, it becomes less about getting into someones head and more about getting into my own head. I really 'feel' music (as I'm sure a lot of you do too #empath #ENFJ 👊) so when I do rope, music switches something on in my brain. It feels a bit like like top-space. Ultra focused without having to really think about my next move.
How does music work for you?
