Safe Facesitting

So, it looks like a lot of people are going to have facesitting sessions in their homes today in solidarity with the #pornprotest people.

If so and this is your first time, please understand that facesitting can be dangerous if not done correctly. Here is a brief guide to safe facesitting. There is also a ton of information available online.

1. The danger isn't during the facesitting itself. Most facesitting deaths are heart attacks that happen roughly 20 minutes after the act is done. This is the result of airway blockage during the session.

2. Never, ever to it to the point where the person passes out.

3. Do not cover both the nose and the mouth at the same time. You can find an angle where you cover one or the other - never cover both.

4. Have a safe action in place in case you get carried away and accidentally end up covering both airways. A good one is a tap on the butt.

5. Lift off the face for a couple seconds roughly ever two minutes.

6. You can also purchase facesitting chairs, also known and queening chairs, that make facesitting much, much safer.
