22 INCHES OF HANDY HELL

A Focus On The Tawse

As leather toys go, a real Tawse, not a wannabe split leather strap, is just about the most fearsome, short range, toy that you can get. As The images above and below illustrate.

But it is not the Tawse used on the bottom, that this post will be focusing on but….

Hand Tawsing

Although impacts on the buttocks, back of the legs and even the back can be far more satisfying than hand play, there is something psychologically thrilling and scary, seeing the blow coming in, that can really get the endorphins flowing. You might get a better idea of this from the following video.

The Tawse is about the most painful impact toy that you can use on the hands. If you used a cane to cause the same level of pain, you would be at risk of damaging all those small bones, that are found in the hand. The severity of the Tawse, relies on its proportions. Traditionally, the Lochgelly Tawse was 22 inches (about 56 cm) long and came in varying thicknesses to vary the severity level. But even the least severe was by no means skinny. The following images give an idea of the various thicknesses of Tawses

A light Tawse

A heavy Tawse

(I could not find an image of the thickness of a medium Tawse)

An extra heavy Tawse

And the following GIF illustrates what instructions a recipient might receive before having their hands Tawsed. Although the Tawse being used here is the traditional Glasgow, 3 tailed Tawse, this should whip up those stomach butterflies into a veritable storm, if this was seen through your own eyes 🙂

The impact of a Tawse on the palms is brutal, to say the least. The after effects are equally disturbing. It feels like the centre of your palm has developed a black hole, whose gravity field is dragging the rest of the skin on your hand into its depths. Even when people are only pratting about with this toy, you can tell that it causes a lot of real pain on the paws, as can be seen, in the following two videos.

An interesting break from work

And fun at the local pub

The Tawse Helped End The Use Of Corporal Punishment in UK Schools (Hooray!)

It was a court case about the use of the Tawse in Scottish schools that did not end the use of CP in UK schools, but it did start the ball rolling in that direction. Leaving the use of the Tawse firmly where it should be, only between consenting adults. The following video not only tells you about this but also has some footage of how a real Tawse is made, that I found very interesting.

It is the pain and body chemicals that make impact play so wonderful. But actually seeing it coming can add a psychological element that can increase the sensation tenfold.

I hope that this post has brought back good memories to those who enjoy hand Tawsing and perhaps, tempted those of you who have yet to experience it to give it a go.

I WISH I COULD HAVE MARRIED A SPARTAN WOMAN

Spartan Women, The Ideal Spouses

Over the weekend, I listened to a BBC Radio 4 program about the women of Sparta. It was so good I had to hear it twice. It described why Spartan women were my type of Gals. If you want to listen to it, follow the link below.

NATALIE HAYNES STANDS UP FOR THE CLASSICS – SPARTAN WOMEN

Unlike many women, in ancient history, they were not expected to be pretty wall flowers, or an extension of their men. But were raised from a young age to be strong and independent leaders. To start with, they exercised and trained to be physically fit and strong. A bit like…

And would take part in many sports, both individual…

and team sports, the same as the boys.

Greek athletes always trained and competed nude, by the way. 🙂 A female Spartan participated in sports including wrestling, long- and short-distance running, horseback riding, hurling the javelin or discus, boxing, and racing.

From the age of 7 they also received a good, academic education

They were also trained in martial arts and combat, from a young age. As their men would spend a lot of time away fighting, they would be the home defence team for their house, town or city and be expected to hold their own in a combat situation.

Spartan women did not normally marry until they were between 18 and 20. Relatively mature, by the standards of that period of history. However, between menstruation and marriage, girls were encouraged to be sexually active, with other girls of their own age.

There were choir clubs, songs and other activities to encourage this. So they came to the marriage bed with a good idea of how they needed to be satisfied.

At home, the Spartan wife would have been in charge of everything, domestic organization, finances, running the family business and everything else of great importance. The Spartan economy revolved around the leadership of its women.

And they did not, as most spouses in the ancient world, spend all their time looking toward the cooking and cleaning. They got their slaves to do that for them.

So in conclusion, Spartan wives were strong, well-educated, powerful women, used to being in a leadership role and they could make that weirdo, hanging around in the park, fear for his life 🙂

This would be so much better than having the Patriarchy. If only history had continued in this vain.

HOW TO BUILD A SPANKING CHAPEL – OR A GREAT ROOM THAT WAS AT THE CHÂTEAUX OF THE PRINCE’S OF CHIMAY

The Surprising Little Church At The Châteaux In Chimay

Whilst on my recent travels, there was an opportunity to visit the princely castle of Chimay. Which is in a beautiful little town in Wallonia of the same name, famous for its beer, cheese and being the last non-royal principality of Belgium. The castle was gutted by fire in 1935, losing much of its Baroque furniture and interior decoration. Over the last few decades, some rooms have been restored to their former glory, including…

The Chapel

Which is a very pretty place for Catholic worship. But the more that I looked around, the more that images like…

This

Started to flash into my imagination. It became clear to me that, some hundreds of years ago, someone had said, to a baroque interior designer, “Build Me A Spanking Church”.

The Prayer Kneelers

The first of these, that I noticed, were these

Excellent for kneeling on to receive a back flogging or bending over the other way for a holy birching. Just a nice height for either of these activities and comfortably padded…

Unlike Some Others That I have Seen

But when I turned around…

There Were Some Even Better Ones

That were far more sturdy, solid and unlikely to move around during a severe punishment of a sinner, under the torment of a holy lash. And even more…

One For Chastising A Pair Of Sinners At The Same Time

And then I noticed the general seating of the chapel which were just the right size, height and shape to be…

Padded Birching Benches

Which could easily be used…

Like This

Or This

I suppose you have to have a spankos mindset to see what the designer had in mind, when furnishing this Chapel. But there are some spiritual spankos out there who need a friendly place to pray and play, sometimes. Perhaps this is the place for them.

🙂

THE SOUND OF SILENT SPANKING

In the following link, you will find a post I published a few days ago

HOLY SPANKING QUEST

In it, I featured a vintage spanking GIF, that came from the time of silent cinema. I thought that I would go looking for more like this. This is what I found, enjoy.

Harold Lloyd handing out justice

Buster Keaton, slapping his mackerel

I think that the next two would have been from the 1950s, but were for sale for home cinema use, which at that time would have meant that they were silent.

DANTE’S SPANKING INFERNO

Dante

2021 marks the 700rth anniversary of the death of Dante ( AKA Durante di Alighiero degli Alighier – and if you think that I had to copy and paste that name, you would be right) who is most famous for his extended poem The Divine Comedy. In this work Dante is given guided tours of hell, purgatory and paradise. The most interesting of these three is the first part, usually known as Dante’s Inferno, where he is guided through the nine levels of hell, with different levels of punishment for the sinners cast down there based on the sin that they have committed. I thought that it might be fun to imagine what Dante might have witnessed if he had been given a tour of The Spanking Inferno

Level One – Of Spanking By The Hand

Level Two – Hairbrush Hell

Level Three – Fiery Flogger Flagellation

Level Four – Slippers for Sinners

Level Five – The Belt From Beelzebub

Level Six – The Torture Of The Tawse

Level Seven – For The Countlessly Caned

Level Eight – The Punitively Paddled

And Level Nine – The Brutally Birched Level

The worse punishment level, reserved for those that have committed the most heinous of sins. Such as eating crunchy snacks in the cinema, or stealing my favourite parking space.

Or are there any alternative levels that you would like to show Dante?

BIRCHING IN THE BAD OLD DAYS – AND A FUNNY

How A Birching Was Carried Out Way Back When

I’m not sure when this practice was stopped but The Isle Of man was, I believe, the last authority in Europe to use corporal punishment as a judicial punishment, in the form of birching. This is an actual news report where a police officer explains how the punishment was conducted.

And I Just Thought That This Was Funny

have a great weekend everybody
