What is spanking?Describes the practice of hitting the partner’s buttocks with the hand (or any other element) for erotic purposes. The English term spanking refers to “whipping” or spanking in privacy. Spanking, in turn, can be given at different levels of intensity. It is not clear what the origin of this modality is; however, in the Kamasutra, the word scourge appears several times :
- Who, at the moment of the embraces, is listless, has little virility, and cannot bear affectionate lashes is a man of weak passion (part II, chap. 1).
- They like, above all, hugs, kisses, and bruises made with nails and teeth, but they reject wounds and must be conquered with affectionate lashes (part II, chap. 5).
As practiced?Although the term is a bit strange for many, spanking is a sexual practice that is frequently done between couples. As we already mentioned, it implies a series of role-playing games in which certain fantasies are fulfilled; among bondage lovers, it cannot be missing. Of course, it is also very pleasant for couples who prefer another type of intimacy. It can be enjoyed in the classic doggy-style position or as part of foreplay, depending on both preferences.
To practice it as a couple, the following must be taken into account:
- They can take on roles in a dominator/dominated game.
- Spanking can be given by hand or with items such as straps, whips, or other leather, wood, or plastic instruments.
- Peak arousal is reached during the spanking. However, its level of intensity should be adapted to the couple’s taste.
- The general rule of thumb is to avoid violent blows; however, some feel more pleasure as the intensity increases.
- Spanking can be part of foreplay and alternate with oral or anal stimulation.
Postures for spankingThere are several positions that they can assume, both the dominator or whipper and the dominated. Among these are:
- On the knees: in this position, the spanker (flogger) is seated, and the whipped is lying face down on his knees. It is the most classic position, and there is direct and permanent body contact between the two participants.
- Doggy style: it is the same as the classic doggy style position, only in this case, the sexual position is not adopted for penetration but to receive spankings in that way.
- Little spoon: it is also like the sexual position that has that name, with the two people lying down and looking in the same direction, but due to the position of the hand, the spanking will be light.
Accessories to practice spankingIn addition to the hands, it is possible to use various objects to increase pleasure:
- A cane is an implement or instrument used in spanking, especially disciplinary. Generally, worked canes are used.
- Belt: a belt or belt is a garment in the form of a flexible band made of leather or other resistant material, placed around the waist to hold the pants or cinch the dress or other similar garment.
- Rebenque: it is an implement from Argentina and Uruguay. In itself, it is a piece of cowhide designed to whip cattle.
