There are actually substantial risks with CBT, such as hematocele, bruising, welting, plebitis, edema, torsion, rupture of the corpus cavernosa and more. Some of those things are minor. Others can be very serious injuries.
If you're going to engage in heavy sensation play liike CBT, I'd suggest you do two things:
1) Do some research at the library or your local bookstore. Especially helpful may be "Family Jewels" by Hardy Haberman or "SM101" by Jay Wiseman. I'd honestly suggest you do research before you engage in CBT again simply because it is a very risky activity. Really knowing how to do what you're doing safely is important.
2) Learn to recognize the difference between "good" pain and "bad" pain. In other words, during sensation play, we usually feel pain that is very linked to pleasure, and that's often safe. But if you feel pain that is NOT pleasurable, stop what you're doing right there, as that's your body's way of letting you know you may be in danger of inury. And do make sure you and your partner have a system -- such as safewords or hand signals -- that lets her know when she needs to stop.
