To Fake A Caning

It’s rare these days to see obviously-faked spanking marks, but it used to be too common, especially in porn that was only tangentially about spanking. This remarkable photo of cane marks being drawn on an actress’s bottom is from a 1968 Danish documentary about porn:

Vanilla Spanking explains:

You can’t talk seriously about anything without showing examples, and the film stages several illustrative sequences representing the erotica and sexual fantasies of different eras. Sometimes this includes elements of sado-masochism, which was then particularly taboo in Denmark despite the appearance of some outstanding spanking scenes in mainstream Danish cinema. One sequence covers the making of a modern porno film, including some ‘rough stuff’. The actress is asked to bend over the couch, and the actor with the cane asks plaintively if he really has to hit her. Luckily for her, the director gets out a crayon…

Spank Her With A Broom

These rural broom-spanking shenanigans are included in one of Richard Windsor’s birthday spanking folders, and the playful attitude is certainly there to support the notion that this is a birthday spanking:

Ronnie’s Real Spanking

When Ronnie got in what she calls a “slanging match” with her husband, it ended with her getting a real spanking:

Anyway it stopped abruptly. P stood and took a few deep breaths.

“This has gone far enough, more than far enough and I’m not having any more of it.” There were no swear words and his voice had lowered and he was very calm. He took me upstairs, I didn’t know why he needed to do that if he was going to spank me why didn’t he do it there and then. Well I found out soon enough why he wanted me upstairs, he wanted an implement and nearest to hand was a paddle, it’s the stingiest paddle we’ve got, one that Bogey sent me ages ago and it really really hurts when it’s used hard. P knows I dread it.

My jeans and knickers came down and I was pulled half across his lap half on the bed with his right leg locking me down. It was all very fast and efficient. I started protesting but the spanks were underway before I could get a sentence out and then I just shouted and squealed. Profanities resumed but only from me not P. I meant everything I called him at that time too, I’m not going to print it all just believe me my mouth needs washing out for a month. I tried to dig my nails into his flesh where his t-shirt pulled up but he just pinned my arm behind my back and carried on spanking. There’s a pattern to spankings, I mean real ones not play ones, for me anyway. There’s verbal objection, physical resistance, foul mouthedness, threat, overpowerment, shock, realisation, inward capitulation, outward capitulation, pleading, apologies, meaningful apologies, do-with-me-as-you-will absolute contrition usually accompanied by limpness. That was how it was, I was so exhausted I didn’t know how much he’d hurt my bottom until he let me up and there was rush of pain as blood rushed to my nether region to try and cool it. Oh god I wanted to jump about and grasp my poor backside but wouldn’t while he was still in the room.

“We’ll have no more of that nonsense, and I don’t just mean for a few hours or the rest of the day, I mean forever. Full stop.”

All’s well that ends well!

Caning A Perfectionist

Kaelah took it into her head that she wanted some nice marks on her bottom, so she invited Ludwig to give her a dozen strokes.

“But not too hard, I am not used to being caned anymore at all!” I told Ludwig. Yes, I still try to top from the bottom. But it’s the same with Ludwig, so he doesn’t mind. When the first medium severe stroke hit my bottom, I wasn’t so sure anymore whether the cane had been the right choice.

While the pain might not have been as stingy as the pain from a whippy peeled cane, it still burned and it went deep into the muscles because of the heaviness of the cane. I shared my observation with Ludwig. Obviously he found it interesting, because he immediately continued testing the effect of the cane. Ouch! I gritted my teeth and hissed and moaned myself through the next strokes. I went on tiptoes, bent my knees and wriggled my bottom in a vain attempt to cope with the nowadays so unfamiliar pain. The strokes weren’t too severe, but the pain definitely was enough for me!

When the last stroke came, Ludwig of course had to make that one harder than the previous ones. At that stage I was already sweating. I tried to prepare myself as good as possible for the final stroke and then I heard a swish and a crack and the cane hit target for the last time. It ignited one more line of fire on my rear end and I buckled and wriggled in order to relieve the pain.

But now we get to the part where we learn that caning a perfectionist has its extra pleasures. Because when Kaelah looked in the mirror, it wasn’t enough:

Then I took a look in the mirror – and realised that there was still a gap between the strokes on the upper half of my bottom and the ones on the lower half. Plus, except for the last one, the red lines weren’t as much visible as I had hoped them to be. With my light skin I tend to get pale red lines only directly after a caning, unless it has been really quite hard. The marks easily turn blue later, though.

A looked at the mirror for a moment and handed the cane back to Ludwig. “The gap needs to be closed and I need some more clearly visible marks,” I explained. “Well, it was just twelve strokes, I can’t cover your whole bottom with that,” Ludwig replied. He then complied with my request and focused his attention on the still white part of my bottom. After a few more strokes, he had managed to close the gap.

The pain was still strong, but it had become bearable since I was warmed up by now. So I was ready to take a few more severe strokes as well to round up the picture so to speak. I figured that since I had already taken so much pain in order to get a nice picture, I could take a bit more. Ludwig remarked something about me being a real masochist, but was of course happy to satisfy my wish. And so he gave me a final bunch (was it six?) of more severe strokes that imprinted clearly visible marks on my now already very red rear end.

I made it through those as well, driven by my declared intention to get the marks that I wanted. I was glad when it was finally over, though. It had been my most intense spanking for quite some time and it had been obvious that I wasn’t used to the pain anymore at all. A look in the mirror made up for it, though, because there I saw the marks I had wanted to see. Clearly visible dark red tramlines covering my whole bottom.

Isn’t it fun when everybody gets exactly what they want?

Erica Scott’s Spanking Blog Goodbye

There aren’t many spanking blogs left any more, and I don’t have a lot of room to complain about that; my own spanking blog (this one here) which was possibly the first such, isn’t “all that” these days. My updates stay fairly regular, but most of the time this is just image-blogging that would be more efficiently done (and to a bigger audience) on Tumblr. I’m stubborn, though, and I’m not running out (at least not yet) of the increasingly-hard-to-find spanking images that can catch my eye and tickle my fancy. Anyway, Erica Scott was for many years a die-hard spanking blogger like me, but she’s finally hung up her hat and thrown in the towel. On her way out the door, she wrote an interesting recap of the evolution of online spanking communities that I think is worth sharing, as were many of her other posts over the years:

I have been in the spanking scene for twenty-one years this month, and online for nineteen. I have watched many changes in what became known as social media. In the early days for spanking chat and exploration, there were what was known as newsgroups, and various chat rooms. Often the latter devolved into a bunch of silly cyber spanking, but one could find intelligent conversation if one looked carefully. Then, around 2000, give or take a year, those gave way to chat forums, such as those on MSN and Yahoo, the old Shadow Lane chat board, etc. People posted and chatted and shared and connected. I co-managed a successful forum for a few years and had a blast.

When the forums began to run their course, they were overtaken by a new phenomenon: the spanking blog. Soon, everyone and their second cousin twice removed was blogging. I joined this bandwagon in 2005, on what used to be the hopping place (!): MySpace. My blog there straggled along for a while, trying to find its audience, but there was so much competition. But then two things happened. One, I was listed by our blog queen, Bonnie, who made a point of spotlighting new blogs in her “In With the New” column. Things really picked up for me after that, but I still had a second holy grail to achieve. The buzz in the blogosphere was about a gentleman who went by the name of Chross, who had a weekly list of what he considered the most notable blog posts. If one was lucky enough to be “Chrossed,” they would be treated to a highly gratifying spike in blog hits. But how did one get on Chross’s radar, I wondered? I finally grew so frustrated that I wrote a post called “Who Do I Have to @#$% to Get on Chross’s List?” Apparently, that got his attention. 🙂

After that, wow. Views, comments, etc. skyrocketed. Until MySpace died, and I took the plunge and started a new blog on Blogger in 2010. I flourished there for years, getting Chrossed often, sharing adventures and party stories and photos and scenes and video shoots, as well as bits and pieces of my personal life. When Blogger threatened to censor or shut down all their “adult” blogs, I migrated to WordPress. Turns out it wasn’t necessary, since Blogger backed off, but I don’t regret it.

However, things changed yet again. Slowly but surely, the spanking blog was overtaken by the Tumblr blogs: pictures. Lots and lots and lots of pictures. The lengthy blog entry morphed into quickie sound bites, gifs and jpegs. Comments became likes and reposts. The spanking models, who all used to blog, now opened Tumblr accounts. Twitter came to be, and now, instead of writing party and shoot reports, people tweeted the action as it was happening. There were some exceptions who maintained their popularity (Hermione and Ronnie come to mind, as well as some of the DD/Hoh blogs and some author blogs) but it seemed that overall, the traditional written spanking blog had gone the way of the VCR and the variety show.

I myself am not quite ready to put a fork in the spanking blog concept and declare it done, but I agree it’s a pale shadow of what it once was. Adult websites in general are struggling these days if they aren’t large and corporate; between Google demoting them in search rankings, mainstream social media (like FaceBook) prohibiting their links and participation, and people in general spending less time “on the web” and more time in various social media networks that are all hostile to adult content, it’s like trying to grow vegetables without irrigation. Sometimes a bit of rain will fall, and stuff doesn’t quite die, but there’s never a bumper crop of traffic, attention, or participation. Ask any dryland farmer how that story ends: some bad year after a string of bad years you just say “fuckit” and stop planting.

I’ll miss Erica’s blog like I miss a long string of people who gave up sooner than she did. Thanks, Erica, for all the good years!

Caned For The Crowd

In the latest update from Public Disgrace, Stella Cox is caned for the crowd in a small cafe. The caning is only moderately severe, but the anguish on her face is very real. Do you suppose perhaps that having an audience cheering her punishment contributed to it?
