I guiltily have to admit that I have not read this book but I have listened to the audio version, link below and it’s sequel The Testaments
But recently I got to see the first two series of the excellent drama series, based on The Handmaid’s Tale book and was surprised to get comments, on my post from Friday 9th of October 2020, from three fellow spankos that have yet to see this. It is a well known feminist work by Margaret Atwood about a dystopia USA that has been renamed Gilead by the Christian fundamentalists that now run the place.
As well as being a significant story it is also full of punishment scenes, which is why I thought that most spankos would have already seen this program. I have to admit that a lot of these punishments I would not like to play out in a spanking/sub dom(me) session but I thought I would give those that have not seen it, the type of things you can expect, as the episodes proceed.
Definitely not what I would class as safe and sane for play but an important part of the story.
Eyes can be plucked out, hands and tongues cut off. A woman can lose a finger for committing the sin of reading a book.
Now this could be played out in a scene.
Offred (Elisabeth Moss) has the soles of her feet whipped twice
And Serena (Yvonne Strahovski), the commanders wife receives a spanking with a belt from her husband
And there is all the rest
Just general brutality
And real, absolutely not for play time
Female circumcision, again not for play or any other reason ever
But there is always fight left in the oppressed
And I will finish with my favourite quote from the series 🙂
If you haven’t seen this yet I suggest you give it a go, it is a great series
