What To Know About Spanking (aka Domestic Discipline) & Corporal Punishment
Although I was a late bloomer to kink (began kink at 34), I’ve been a fully submerged lifestyler since finding the scene in 2006. I loved it so much, I began doing this professionally soon after. Although I’m a Professional Top, I am a lifestyle switch, a heavy masochistic bottom hides underneath the strict Lady Dom persona. I love everything about the kink lifestyle, the protocols, the structure, the sensations and most of all, the connection with others of like mind.
What Is Corporal Punishment?
Corporal punishment refers to the more traditional ways of punishing a human being. Spanking, paddling, strapping, caning and in some cases, whipping to inflict pain after a misdeed or misbehavior is committed.
In some advanced cases, corporal punishment can refer to psychological punishment as well, or The Mindfuck. I like to explore both with advanced players.
Why I Love Corporal Punishment
I’ve been fascinated by punishment, torture and rites of passage since I was a kid. Ordeals and trials, ways to earn maturity and respect from others, pushing our bodies to the absolute brink of what we can take in order to meet a goal, achieve a higher calling or elevate ones lot in life was huge for me, and I’ve been pushing myself in ways since childhood. CP illustrates just how resilient the human body is, and how we can always learn if presented with motivation strong enough.
How Spanking Fits Into Corporal Punishment
Spanking, otherwise known as Domestic Discipline, is the more family and academic oriented types of punishment. OTK (over the knee) is called the Mother’s Position in French, and it belies a nurturing type of, “I don’t want to do this but it’s for your own good” type of authority figure.
Corporal punishment on the other hand, is decidedly more adult and refers to a cold judicial type of attitude on the part of the punisher. CP is more popular with criminal and interrogation types of emotionless scenes.
Correct Techniques To Spank
There are many techniques people use to spank, and there is really no right way or wrong way for people to spank with their hands as long as it works for them. What makes a spanking “wrong” is hitting the wrong area or target. You don’t wish to “wrap” around with hand or implement, and you don’t want to spank too high above the butt crack, or too low on the thighs. Keeping things to the apples of the cheeks, or the sit spot (the crease where butt meets thigh) is always good form.
I love to give a good hand spanking, but my favorite tools are longer ones, like canes and straps. I prefer the challenge it takes to wield a whip over shorter range toys like hairbrushes or wooden spoons.
What You Should Know Before Being Spanked
Your top should discuss with you what you’re looking for, because there are so many different ways to spank, you might not be referring to the same thing when you say “I want to be spanked”. Most spankings hurt at some level, and most people expect them to hurt, although there are non-traditional types of spankings that don’t involve pain.
Start out slowly, with a hand spanking over your underwear. Get comfortable with your top and the sensation before trying implements or positions. Focus on what it feels like at first, don’t rush into an elaborate role play and get overwhelmed. Respond naturally, don’t try and hold things back, your voice and body language is being read by your top to assess where you are at.
Have fun, above all else. 😀
