Game: A steady rate of inflation
I've recently started playing a new game with myself, where I edge once every day and get to have an orgasm whenever I choose to do so.
The catch? The orgasms come at a price, and that price will get progressively higher each time I choose to buy one.
I'm planning to play this game for a minimum of 40 days. If there are days when, for whatever reason, I can't do the one daily edge, I'll treat those days as a pause in the game. Pause days they won't count toward the 40 day minimum for the game, and will draw a penalty of adding one additional day to the duration of the game. (So if there are 8 days when I don't edge, the game will end 16 days later than it would have otherwise: 8 extra days to make up for the missed day, and 8 more extra days to pay the pause penalty.)
Each day that I'm playing the game, I'll do an edge. I can get there however I like, and I don't have to hold it (though I can if I want to), just get to the edge and then stop. And in the 30 seconds after I stop, I'll have a decision to make: orgasm or no orgasm. The choice has to be made by the end of those 30 seconds, while I can still feel how close I was to an orgasm, while that delicious tension is slowly fading into a dull ache. Once the choice is made, there's no changing my mind.
If I choose no orgasm, I clean myself up and don't touch myself until it's time for the next day's edge. Simple self-tease-and-denial.
If I choose an orgasm, I wait another 30 seconds and then I begin working on paying the price of that orgasm. The price will change as the game goes on, but it will always be paid in edges. The first orgasm of the game will cost 10 edges. On the face of it, that wouldn't be much of a price for me. I'm fairly good about reaching the edge over and over in rapid succession once I get there the first time. But because this is supposed to be a payment, I figure it shouldn't be that easy. After each edge, I have to rest for at least 1 minute before I start working toward the next one.
This restriction on my edging accomplishes several things. First, it makes sure that I distinctly and fully experience each edge, both the build up to it and the growing ache as I let it slip away. Second, it increases the time and effort required to pay the price for each orgasm; this will become particularly important as the game goes on.
Because the second time I want an orgasm while playing the game? It will cost 20 edges, paid as described above. And the third time, it will cost 30. Then 40. And then 50. And so on, increasing by 10 edges each time until the game is over.
As you can see, I might very quickly reach a point where I can't finish all of the payment edges on the day when I start them. In such a case, I'll be allowed to continue doing edges the next day. Of course, I won't get the orgasm until I finish making the payment, no matter how many days that takes. Also, each day that starts with me still owing edges on the payment for an orgasm will be treated as a pause in the game, and add days to the game's total duration. So there will be plenty of incentive to promptly make my edging payments once I decide to have an orgasm.
So, choosing an orgasm on any given day means both paying the price for that day and knowing that I've just increased the price I'll have to pay the next time I want one. And hanging over that is the knowledge that if I choose too many, I'll get to a point where I'll have to spread a payment out over several days, prolonging the game. Obviously, the smart thing to do would be to space out the orgasms, make sure I don't run through the lower-priced orgasms too quickly.
However, I'm not always good at self-denial when there's regularly-scheduled teasing involved. It seems particularly hard if I've only done one edge so far that day; in the moments right after that first edge, I'm always eager for more teasing. Today will be my third day playing this game. The first day, I chose no orgasm. Yesterday, I chose to orgasm. When I made the choice, it wasn't even so much about wanting an orgasm as it was about wanting to continue teasing myself. But if I chose no orgasm, there would be no more teasing or edging until the next day. So I chose orgasm because it meant I got to keep edging. After a few of those space-out payment-edges, I was looking forward to the orgasm for its own sake.
I've already used my first orgasm after only 2 days. If I don't get a lot better at saying "no" to my orgasms, I'll be doing a whole lot of edging before this game is through.
