During the 20th century in Europe and America there was a huge growth in spanking literature, artists, underground movies and even barely disguised spanking pursuits in mainstream books, movies, theatre and even night clubs. Hardly anywhere in the so-called developed world seemed immune from the interest, although different cultures explored it differently. The now-liberal countries […]


All Change

I was swimming through a few culled snippets – dozens of them, but all too brief to justify a post by themselves. Then I saw a common theme for a few of them. Most are from the past, which is a good job as today they would probably result in a court case. But all […]


During my absence I had several emails asking about my historical articles and was there a book. Now there is a good idea. The answer is not at the moment, but I have picked up a few titbits here and there. In this vein I had several requests for more about the caning WRNS during […]


Certain times of year come with certain traditions, like Easter and the Slavic tradition of spanking single girls. In some parts of Western Europe they spank girls in honour of Beltane, that May Day fertility rite; albeit these days in a subdued playful way, if at all. I have a picture somewhere of a girl […]


Thank you for all the requests and inquiries about our absence. Every day for the last two years we have had dozens of people requesting access to A Voice in the Corner: even today. That’s thousands of you! I wasn’t that surprised in the first few weeks, but your requests kept on coming and that […]


The online magazine Jezebel got very excited about spanking this week. I expect most here will be more interested in the extensive illustrations and the compilation of movie clips.

Whilst reviewing my extensive files culled from every corner of the Internet over the last decade I found some snippets that I don’t think I have used before. A bit of a filler I know, but I did dig up some fresh research to compliment them. As you probably know a whale bone corset uses […]


It sounds like the title of a risqué spanking novel, and indeed I may swipe it for a short sometime. But actually this is a short article about the memoirs of a plantation owner’s wife entitled Days of Glory. A fusty old tome written before world war two, but it does feature some brief spanking. […]


From my own experience I know that airline cabin crew can be a playful lot. In an earlier age sex and the jet set were somewhat inseparable. Spanking and other such things have played a part. Back in the 1960s the celebrated marital antics of one pilot who spanked his wife, a serving air hostess […]


There are hundreds of so-called spanking mentors out there. Usually they are pitched as ‘experienced men’ who have helped dozens of women etc… In a small way I have played this game too in the past, but let’s be honest, my position is a prurient one and so are most of the other so-called mentors […]
