More Navy Larks

25Feb20

A few weeks back a comment to The Last of the Old Style WRNS Discipline, this time about a woman serving during World War I prompted me to revisit this strange subject. I found a completely new account and new some snippets. This is an edited excerpt of an anecdote written by David S Holly: […]


Mentor Mine

20Jan20

A few years back I wrote about a professional woman who sought and found a spanking mentoring relationship with another older professional woman. We speculated then whether this was a common need among women. It seems that for some it is. Here are a few more such situations. Tiffany from Boston wrote a testimonial for a […]


Bygone Daze

09Nov19

On discussing the demise of CP from western society feelings were mixed at a recent forum. One woman from Wisconsin rather matter-of-factly mentions being sent out back with her sister and cousins to cut switches ‘for a thorough application to our bare bottoms.’ This, she claims, when she was college age. ‘Not really much of […]


Sometime ago we featured an article on the mentoring of young women who actively sought out older women to spank them. Recent magazine articles in the UK have touched on this again, albeit obliquely and with tongues very firmly in their cheek. Although some of the women interviewed, I suspect, had a serious life style […]


Back in the day, before the internet, the only place you could get spanking pictures was through a very limited number of magazines. In the UK these home-grown products were quite hard to find if you lived outside London. Later there were some US products available, but this was mostly in the guise of spanking […]


I stumbled upon the Wertham Project that was discussing 1940s and 50s culture and especially the link between comics and movies. It touches upon the popular campaign to get Lois Lane spanked by Superman, which elsewhere gained traction until the publishers suspected that the calls had been hijacked by more prurient interests. There were wider […]


Sometime ago I posted a snippet about land girls in World War II. These were young women who were either drafted or volunteered to work on British farms from 1938 to 1946 on account of the men leaving for the armed services. As previously discussed most of these women were professional and conscientious, but I […]


Google reader has so many random publications. If you have the patience just about every newspaper and magazine ever published must be there somewhere. This little snippet was in a small corner of The West Country Advertiser in 1886: No big story, no big scandal. Sadly the headline and the date were too blurred. Mrs […]


I was looking for some stories arising from Easter, a traditional spanking season, for an article. I found a whole lot of posts around various pagan festivals, many of which have some spanking (or flagellation element). In addition to Easter: Lupercalia, Beltane, Yule and mid-summer all seem to have some flagellation rites. Since this requires […]


School Daze

28Mar19

The fascination with school punishments and the cane seems to go beyond the spanking community. It is less common now, but not so long ago provincial towns and cities in Britain had regular school disco events. These were school days themed club nights where dance goers dressed as either retro British school masters (sometimes school […]
