They Were Good But They Could Have Been Better

A Spanish Patting

This first scene is from a Spanish production, that I do not know anything about. Everything about this scene is great, the setting, the sub-plot, the atmosphere and all the technical details, except for the actual spanking scene itself.

I can see no reason why they could not get a professional stunt bottom in to take an actual spanking. There is no need to see the spanking itself, nor the paddle making contact with the bottom, but images of the actor taking some proper swings would have stopped this scene disgracing itself, like it did. Also, if they had taken footage of the stunt bottom’s face, while the spanking was happening, that would have given the actor playing the recipient a chance to see what real expressions she should try to recreate with her own face.

The Famous Handmaid’s Tale Belting

Again, a great scene. And apparently a real belting did take place, although protection from bikers protection gear was used to safeguard against any damage to the posterior.

But look at the way he is bringing that belt in. Top down on someone who is bent over. I suspect that if anyone did this at a spanking party, plenty of people would have interceded and told the spanker how it really should be done. Here, it would have been a good idea to get an experienced advisor, on how to carry out a belting, in this position. Perhaps someone like…

Mistress Baton, both an experienced Dominatrix and in her other role, as Yvonne Van Den Bergh, an experienced actor, who will know a thing or two about both spanking and professional, on film, drama production.

These companies spend a lot of money on producing their wares and do not seem shy about bringing in stunt performers for action scenes, advisors for technical accuracy and a whole host of other people, to make their productions look convincing. So Why, O, why, do they spoil the ship for the sake of a tuppence of tar, when it comes to spanking scenes?



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.



It is amazing how many butt slaps you see at sporting events. After several searches, enough GIFs were found to put together a post about them. Let’s take a look at which sports featured some butt whupping.



Beach Volleyball



American Football

With all this spanking play going on, over all the sport fields of the world, it is inevitable that it goes too far now and then. Not to worry, though, medical treatment is available.



Something Serious – Dominating A List Stars

I love this TV interview. It is of a Dominatrix who had the opportunity to play with some of the famous, but the presenters did not over play the “Titillation” card. So, he wanted to be led around with a lead attached to a piercing on his…

I hope that helped to kick off your weekend 🙂



A New Netflix Series With Some Kinky Twists

How To Build A Sex Room, is a new Netflix series. I am not going to pretend that I have seen it all, but from the episodes that I have seen, have been fun and entertaining.

The Series Trailer

Post update – This video was not age restricted when I scheduled this post. You can see it directly, without signing in to YouTube, by going to the Netflix official webpage for this show, that is reachable through a link at the end of this post.

The series revolves around Melanie Rose, an ex actor, who has been practising interior design, for about 20 years.

And she has found a talent for decorating the most interesting rooms in houses. This series follows her, as she designs fun play places for couples.

An Interview With Melanie Rose

Not all the rooms involve, bondage and floggers, although this is entertaining too, giving an insight into varying people, with varying tastes and approaches to the physical side of their relationships.

And the varying items that might include.

Being a Spanko does tend to make me enjoy the episodes with spanking play and BDSM in mind

Even seeing one couple being encouraged to further investigate the kinky play, that they had already started experimenting with themselves.

Whilst another couple was helped to find new ways of exploring the vanilla side of their intimacy.

I had planned to finish the series and then do a review of it. But I realized that with my normal TV diet consisting of Drama, Comedy and History documentaries, I had very little to compare this to. Normally, I never watch reality makeover programs. Which in itself is an endorsement of this series, as it has taken me outside my normal viewing comfort zone and I am still enjoying it.

It has also given me a few extra ideas to include, should I ever have the opportunity to build my fantasy play room 🙂

A few links to sites related to this show






We have all seen it before, when a vanilla tries a bit of kinky pain play and fails at the lightest of impacts. Personally, I think that they should be admired for at least attempting to step out of their normal comfort zones. Having said that, let’s have a good giggle at people being submissively wimpy 🙂
