Earlier this year I bought myself a cupping set. I’d been cupped before, a few years ago (by an acupuncturist), but it’s a whole lot more fun playing with the set myself! Of course, I can only put cups on the parts of myself that I can reach, so I asked Adonis if he’d like to experiment, and put them all on my back for me.
Guess who’s always up for trying something new?

Adonis put every single cup in the set on me, in various places – and the feeling was fantastic! The pump pulls all the air out and creates a vacuum in the cups, so the skin is pulled up into it. For some cups there’s a wee doohicky designed to stop too much skin getting sucked up, and that pressed into the centre of the circles created, leaving a further indentation.
We left them on for 20-30 minutes, and they bruised most impressively! These pics were taken directly afterwards, but the next day about half of them had done a deep purple colour, and remained for about a week.
Plus, it felt marvellous – I’m definitely doing that again!
Cups placed by Adonis, and photographs taken by Aphrodite. Aren’t they sweet?
