The Spankification of History

16Aug13

vintage spankingThe last few days have been a blur of old house and castles. It is surprising how great and varied such places can be. But there are a few constants; all these places seemed to be chocked full of so-called pervertables.

You would swear that every bedroom has a wooden contraption shaped like a paddle or a switch like object. These items were probably innocent tools for striking the stoke-gimbles or for polishing the gubbings or some such, but they have a habit of looking remarkably like spanking or punishment implements. So it does not take a great imagination to think that at least once some of these objects were put to such uses.

Then there are the vast arrays of paddles in the laundries and kitchens. Country house dairies seem to have every size of butter paddle for instance. Considering the proliferation of maids it is perhaps a given that these things got used for spanking; they are far too suitable for such activity not to be.

Then as you stroll around glancing at these objects you chance across saddle-stools and other suggestive furniture that would not be out of place in Magic or Spankmanship.

Can it all be in one’s head? Maybe it is, as one just can’t look at a four-poster bed without seeing the potential of securing a woman’s wrists.

Then all at once you see a strange object with leather cords hanging from it alongside a thin crop-like implement in the corner of a cabinet. What could they be for? You mind can think of no innocent purpose and you just have to read the label next to it.

‘Scourge and punishment whip’ it reads.

Of course, nothing hidden; servants and other miscreants were punished and in days of yore there was a tool for every job and for every task a tool. So why would our forebears improvise? Sometimes maybe you can look so hard that you can miss the obvious.

    Similarly, why do I think, whenever I browse through a hardware store, that many of the objects for sale are designed for–or at the very least can be used for–the chastisement of the human body?

    Maybe it’s simple. Eve’s daughters have -everywhere and in any time- never forgotten who they are and man is…

    Of course people will always find what they are looking for, Spankos included. Once I read of a new patient who told his psychiatrist that he had a fetish for attractive women with missing limbs, that is, amputees.

    The Doctor replied, “It must be hard to find women like that.”

    “What are you talking about?” the man exclaimed, “They’re everywhere!”

    As far as common household objects that make good spanking implements almost every house has a light cane available hidden in plain sight, often in every room. They are the rods on venitian blinds used to open and close them. 24″ to 28″ long and 5/16″ to 3/8 thick and made of a light plastic or fiberglass they are not as severe as a school cane but when wielded with sufficient force they can be very stingy.

    Try one and you can write in a tell us the results.

      Oh they are indeed stingy. And they can be used for self punishment (although my preference is still the folded-over belt despite the fact that the accuracy rate is lower).

        cindy2, I certainly hope the self-spanking is by choice and not for lack of a willing, nay, EAGER, real-life co-pilot…

    Psychology is dangerous stuff and even more dangerous if you ignore it.
