A BDSM practice where the individual is wrapped tightly like a mummy with plastic wrap, duct tape, leather, bondage tape, or other materials for immobilization. Creates a sense of helplessness. Mummification can be limited to specific parts of the body, or it can include the entire body. Mummification can be very dangerous, and requires that several precautions be put in place, including having EMT scissors on hand to quickly release the submissive.
