Many people who are only starting out with testicle stimulation wonder about the difference between ball stretching and CBT. After all, both involve manipulation of testicles and scrotum. Are ball stretching and CBT the same thing and is it possible to practice them both?
The truth is that ball stretching and CBT are not the same thing, though they sometimes use the same devices. These are in many ways very different activities though many people enjoy both of them equally.
The Main Difference between Ball Stretching and CBT
At the first glance, it may seem that ball stretching and CBT are basically the same. After all, they both involve testicles and use some devices that look extreme. Ball stretching typically uses heavy metal weights to pull down the scrotum. This may seem very painful so it looks like a perfect example of a cock and ball torture.
It is true that these two activities sometimes look the same or may use the same devices. However, the main difference between ball stretching and CBT is the desired effect. Namely, ball stretching is a very practical activity that has a goal of stretching one’s balls and achieving low hangers. The goal of ball stretching is not to achieve sexual pleasure through pain on the testicles. In fact, ball stretching, while it may look extreme, may not be painful at all. Most of the time, it is pain-free and it might not even be uncomfortable. In other words, ball stretching is not about the pain.
Cock and ball torture, on the other hand, is a form of an extreme sexual activity. It has a goal of achieving sexual pleasure through intense manipulation of penis and testicles which often involves pain. While you can choose how painful CBT will get it is definitely something made for those who enjoy painful pleasures.
As you can see, there is a very important difference between ball stretching and CBT. Ball stretching has a specific goal of stretching one’s balls and enjoying the experience. It doesn’t have to be painful at all.
Also, CBT is often used as an important part of BDSM games, particularly those of power and control. Many people do CBT with a partner. Ball stretching, on the other hand, can be a solo activity and not necessarily part of BDSM niche.
Why Some People Confuse Ball Stretching and CBT?
Although ball stretching and CBT are two very different activities it is not surprising that many people confuse one for the other. After all, there are some notable similarities. Both involve testicles and can get very extreme, depending on the preferences and the type of devices used.
These devices are often the same for ball stretching and CBT. In fact, it is possible to say that CBT often uses ball stretchers. In this sense, ball stretching can be part of a cock and ball torture scenario. This is particularly true for those who use special extreme ball stretchers with spikes or other additions. However, it is also important to remember that ball stretching in itself doesn’t have to be painful or extreme. It all depends on how you use ball weights and other ball stretching devices.
