What Is A Sjambok?
A Sjambok is a long, thick, semi stiff rod. Originally they were made of things like Hippo hide, but these days tend to be made of rubber or other synthetic materials. They come from the southern end of the African continent and were developed to help in cattle herding, but are now used in BDSM and Spanking, corporal punishment scenes.
They come in a variety of different colours and styles of handles, but the business end seems to be pretty standard, on all of them.
My Thoughts On The Sjambok
What I have seen of Sjambok punishments creates two sensations, fear and curiosity.
It does look like an incredibly intense and harsh implement. Making me wonder if it is beyond my tolerance limits. This scares me, no sub wants to admit defeat. I know I can handle a good caning and that the cane is no lightweight toy to receive, But in this next GIF, you can see a sub being struck with both a Cane and a Sjambok. Notice the difference in his reactions.
The Cane is harshly applied and gets his attention, but the Sjambok looks like it was even harder to handle.
Curiosity and desire
But the Sjambok does interest me and I am curious to find out what it feels like. But am I curious enough to overcome my fear reaction? Added to that is my desire for lasting marks and the Sjambok looks like it leaves a trail of welts that would last many a moon, even on an experienced submissive’s bottom.
If the opportunity arose. I think that my curiosity and desire to be marked, would win over my fear of this implement. But it still sends a shiver down my spine, thinking what the impact would be like and if I am sub enough to endure it.
