How Hard Should a Spanking Be?

Posted on 25th May, 2014

How hard should a spanking be?

It varies.

An OTK hand-spanking may not consist of particularly hard smacks, but there could be quite a lot of them.  The repetition of smacks on the same area builds up heat and stinging.  This could be a "loving" spanking - given to a pupil who feels especially wretched and foolish about her misconduct.

A prolonged spanking given with a solid object, and where the strokes are applied hard and with "follow through", should generally be avoided as there is a serious risk of bruising.

In my view, an especially punitive spanking should be given with a wooden clothes brush (or miniature cricket bat used for autographs), and the number of strokes should be determined in advance.  This permits for a controlled punishment where the strokes can be aimed at specific areas to spread them evenly across the pupil's bottom. 

Only the fleshy parts of the bottom should be struck.  Keep well below the level of the top of the crack.  How low to go is a matter of judgement; low strokes are not dangerous but can be very painful.

Twelve strokes is a good number.

The strokes should certainly not be applied ferociously - but they should be given quite a lot harder than the pupil would wish upon herself (at that moment).  They are punitive and should feel punitive.

A clothes brush spanking should make the pupil feel that her bottom is ablaze and it will be hot and stinging until bed-time. In time, however, the raging heat will subside into a rather pleasant warmth.

Pupils vary enormously.  Some will jump up and clutch their bottom.  Some will remain bending over, in position, until the punishment has been carried out.  The punishment may be equally effective on both types of pupil.

THE GOLDEN RULE is that the punishment has been imposed, and is being carried out, FOR THE PUPIL'S OWN GOOD. It should be made duly punitive and effective; but it should never be more severe than the pupil (1) deserves; and (2) needs. 


Sometimes a pupil will take 12 strokes of the clothes brush very stoically without a murmur and without moving.  On being told to stand up, and then being told she is dismissed, she politely thanks the Senior Tutor and then walks slowly to the door, in a dignified manner, and leaves the room.

She goes straight to the ladies'. 

She puts a flannel in the wash basin and soaks it in cold water.  It will be a cold compress to cool the hot stinging in her bottom

While she waits for it to soak, she pulls her trousers down ... and she rubs ...

She was very brave and determined not to let the Senior Tutor see her making a fuss.  But goodness, how that clothes brush stings!

Corporal punishment is generally given on a pupil's bottom... but what about her hands?


I am bound to say that I tend to dislike strapping her hands BUT this may be sensible for a minor infraction or minor misconduct in a review meeting.  The strokes should be light and few.


 However, there is another occasion when one, two or three quite hard strokes of a strap might usefully be applied to each of the pupil's hands.  This is before a caning.


The pupil has been told she is to be caned, and how many strokes she will get.  Even if she has never been caned before, she will be sure the cane will create a very painful sting across he bottom and she will be conscious of how humbling it will be to have to bend over and present her bottom.


However, her trepidation can be made worse.  She can be told that, before she bends over for the cane, she will have to very submissively hold out each of her hands in turn to get a strap across it.  Holding out her hands is a rehearsal for the more abject act of submission involved in bending over.  The unpleasant sting of the strap brings it home that the cane is going to hurt.


This can be a useful refinement.


It should be no more than that, though.


If a pupil has misbehaved and needs to be punished, her general expectation should be that she is going to get her bottom smacked
