How To Spank
|Spanking is a much more personal
and intimate than other forms of discipline. There is nothing quite
like the feel of your boy bent over your knee, bare ass arched upwards,
quivering with a combination of fear and anticipation. For the bottom,
too, it provides a very unique feeling - both physically and mentally.
Spanking evokes memories of corporal punishment many of us experience
in childhood. For this reason, many spankees look for tops who fit
the roles of Daddy, Mommy, coach, a big brother, Aunt or other authority
Position & Posture
One of the factors that sets spanking apart from other forms of
discipline is the deliberate and sometimes ceremonial positioning
of the participants. While some spankings are haphazard, many prefer
spankings that include the ritual of positioning.
Both the spankee and spanker adopt positions that facilitate and
enhance the spanking. These positions generally work to the advantage
of the spanker and the disadvantage of the spankee.
The spanker enjoys the following advantages from their position:
Whether standing or sitting, the spanker is positioned to be comfortable
throughout the spanking. They are able to swing their arm at a natural
angle and able to sustain a lengthy spanking with ease because of
Because they are able to wind up and freely swing their arm at a
natural angle, the spanker is able to apply swats to the intended
target with force. While standing, the spanker cannot only swing
their arm but rotate their body to deliver maximum energy to an
anxiously awaiting, clenching derriere.
The spankee's position is designed to fully expose their bottom
and the spanker's relative position is designed to put that bottom
at a convenient angle and height. Therefore, the spanker is able
to view, tweak, pat and spank it.
Because the spanker is in the position to easily spank the rear-end
at the correct angle, it is much less likely that a blow will fall
too high or too low.
The spanker's position gives them the "upper hand" and allows
them to easily control the spankee. They sit or stand higher than
the spankee and are easily able to restrain and situate the spankee.
The spankee realizes the following effects from their position:
Except for the notable exception of their backside, Many think it's
important that the spankee be relatively comfortable so they can
focus on the sensations being inflicted upon their posterior.
Bending over and getting into position to get your bottom blistered
signals the beginning of the spanking and builds anticipation.
A properly positioned bottom will tend to be spanked harder and
more completely on the sensitive "sit spot."
Being put over the knee is a childish, humiliating posture. Having
to "assume the position" is humiliating in its submission
and rubs in the fact that they are being spanked.
A properly positioned bottom is fully exposed. The cheeks are fully
presented and split, their undersides turned up. In the case of
men, the anus and back of scrotum show. Women are even more exposed,
their rectums and vulvas fully visible.
Emphasis on their bottom
Spanking positions place the center of attention on the bottom of
the person being spanked, a fact not lost on said person. The bottom
is emphasized by its exposure and upturned position relative to
Presentation of their bottom
Not only is the bottom exposed and emphasized but the spankee feels
they are willingly "sticking it out" and presenting it
for its punishment in the same way that the condemned man must place
his head on the chopping block. The spankee knows their bottom cannot
evade or escape the swats.
Cooperatively getting into position to be spanked is the primary
act of submission in spanking.
Although it may be of little solace, the spankee can take comfort
in the fact that their position affords safety from injury. Of course,
this can be disconcerting if they know they will be spanked with
even more abandon.
Loss of control
Once positioned, the spankee has relinquished control and may not
easily regain it until the spanking is done. They may have difficulty
removing their rear from the line of fire if they try.
Inability to clench
When standing, one can clench their cheeks together, mitigating
the sting of a swat and the exposure. When properly positioned,
it is more difficult to clench cheeks and the spanking will be applied
to a relaxed, bouncing bottom.
Excellent visual presentation
Speaking from the point of view of an admitted bottom fancier, there
are few times that someone looks more adorable and beautiful than
when he or she is positioned to be spanked. Not only is the bottom
emphasized, but it is formed to a flattering shape and sexily perked
out. Spanking positions would be sexy even to people not into spanking.
Following are descriptions of various positions that many find erotic,
their distinguishing characteristics, tactics that can be used to
enhance them, and precautions to take. All descriptions assume a right-handed
Over the lap
The spanker sits with good posture in an armless chair, knees together.
The person being spanked must lay face down across the spanker's
lap, with their head to the left and their feet to the right. They
must be over the lap far enough so their bottom is conveniently
located directly over the spanker's right thigh. In order to preserve
modesty, the person being spanked may be tempted to lie flat with
their head up and legs straight out behind; however, if they are
concerned for their modesty, they shouldn't have gotten themselves
spanked in the first place. The spankee's head and shoulders should
be angled down and their knees tucked down out of the way so that
their bottom is well turned up. A palm pressed against the back
of the head and swats to the thighs are helpful in positioning the
Knees should be at least six inches apart and the lower back should
be "arched" or dipped to further turn up their rear. For
a woman, this will result in her vulva being fully exposed and presented.
Depending on size, toes will either be resting against the floor
or hoisted off a few inches. The full weight of the spankee should
be resting on the lap.
Hands can either be on the floor or grasping the legs of the chair.
If the right hand flies back during spanking, it should be pinned
to the lower back by the spanker's left hand.
Prior to starting to spank, the spanker should firmly grasp the
spankee's waist above the right hip with the left hand to prevent
squirming off the lap. Then the left elbow should be planted between
the shoulder blades to keep the head and shoulders from bobbing
up. The spanker should raise their right knee slightly, turning
up the bottom further. In the case of a woman or man spanking a
boy, she should make sure his penis is pressed firmly against her
right thigh and aimed to the left.
By turning their upper body to the right, the spanker can get a
fuller swing and more comfortably apply a stronger swat. By combining
all of these tactics - the raised knee, the elbow in the back, the
hand in the small of the back - the spanker can effectively pin
the spankee down and spank the daylights out of them.
Over the knee
Similar to over-the-lap except the spankee is bent over the left knee
with their legs restrained by the spanker's right leg.
Hands on ankles
This is the classic school-style paddling position. The student
must stand well clear of obstacles with feet shoulder width apart.
Leaving knees straight and back straight, the student must bend
over and grasp their ankles with both hands. The spanker may want
to observe the student's hands throughout the paddling to ensure
they do not leave the ankles and earn extra swats.
The spanker stands facing the left side of the student. They should
stand far enough away so the paddle barely overlaps past the right
cheek. They should adjust fore and aft to ensure that both cheeks
are struck at the same time (assuming a paddle is being used. Canes
and straps warrant slightly forward positioning). It is not possible
to more fully expose and present a rear end than when in this position.
When one is told to bend over and grab their ankles, one is, in
effect, being told, "we intend to thoroughly paddle your bottom.
So not only will you present your rear-end but you will stretch
and endeavor to stick it up and out as far as you absolutely positively
can. And throughout the paddling, you will continue to strain to
stick it out for the paddle."
Since the angle between the legs and the upper body is well under
90 degrees, this position spreads the cheeks and exposes the rectum
and genitals more than any other position. This is a great fantasy
position, but manyI think it only works safely in reality for spankees
with flexible bodies (especially when a thick paddle is used). Inflexible
people can't reach their ankles without bending their knees. Men
run the risk of getting their testicles whacked. Non-fleshy butts
get pulled tightly across the pelvic bones and don't provide enough
padding when a heavy paddle is used.
Hands on knees
is a safer, more workable position than hands-on-ankles. The bottom
is presented in a plumper, more paddle-friendly shape but visually,
the position is still very school-like. Depending on the person,
I think this position can be more visually appealing because the
back can be arched a bit which perks up the bottom. In fact, the
further up the legs the hands are placed, the more the spankee can
arch their back and stick out their rump. Again, feet should be
shoulder width apart and hand positioning enforced. Because the
back can be arched and bottom upturned, it should be required, both
prior and during the paddling. A technique which tends to arch the
back correctly is to require the student to look forward at a spot
high on the wall. That way, they are required to pull their head
up and arch their back.
Over the desk on tiptoes
Another school-like position. The student must bend over a desk with
nose or chest pressed to the desk. Hands and arms should be placed
on the desk over their head to further arch the back. To further elevate
their bottoms to be spanked, they must raise up onto their toes. Penalty
swats can be awarded for every incidence of a heel touching the floor
(hint: watch after the "last" swat before the student is
told they may relax).
Over a barstool or horse
This is probably the best position for paddling because the bottom
is presented in a plump and relaxed manner. The person to be punished
must lay their full weight across the stool, their feet hanging
and hands grasping the legs of the stool at a level such that there
is a little support for their upper body. This is a relaxed, comfortable
position which works well for lengthy spankings.
Laying on bed
Another comfortable position for lengthy spankings and ensuing diversions.
The spankee must lay face-down on a bed. Their face should be pressed
to the mattress while their hips and bottom are elevated on pillows.
Since pillows are compressible, it may take three or four to achieve
the proper elevation.
Kneeling in chair
This is a favorite positions for spankees with great butts because,
properly executed, it presents the rear in its most flattering light.
The trick is in the execution. The spankee must kneel in the seat
of a padded chair (save those knees for later) facing the back with
the thighs vertical and upper body forward over the back. Again,
the spankee should be required to arch the back well. Two things
conspire to shape his or her bottom. First, the back of the chair
prevents him or her from bending so far as to preclude a good back
arch. Second, just as high heels shape calves fully by angling the
foot to shorten and bulge the calf muscle, kneeling with the calves
at right angles to the thighs seems to allow the buttocks to bulge
Adjustment & readjustment
Most people think it's important to deliberately position and adjust
the spankee prior to the first swat. Emphasis should be placed on
positioning and presenting the bottom fully. Throughout the spanking,
the spankee should be readjusted as their position begins to fail.
Many folks think it's best to require the spankee to willfully maintain
their own position without the physical assistance of the spanker,
especially in the case of stand-up paddlings. Therefore, verbal
communication is necessary throughout the spanking to encourage
the spankee to continue to assume the correct position.
One of the disciplinary aspects of spanking is that no matter how
perfect the spankee is positioned, they can always improve, stick
their bottom out a little further, etc. The spanker should not feel
guilty that their exacting demands regarding position are perhaps
a little too picky and unrealistic.
