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. But it does make some interesting historical points about spanking and views on women. Here is how it opened: In early 1946, a woman from Carmel, […]


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.

Sometime ago I chanced upon a reference to a birching tower in a book. There was no more information, but the most likely explanation that it was used for storage; or so I thought. In the History of the Rod there is a mention of birching rooms in gaols and apparently women prisoners were often […]

The cartoon at the top of the page had me laughing and prompted me to dig out several other westerner spanking images. Never is the substitution of sex more prevalent than in westerns. In most contexts the caveman brute can only be accepted in movies if the eroticism is treated as comedy. Yet within the […]


The 1960s was a challenging time for spanking and spanking enthusiasts. Before this decade spanking was seen as a necessary evil, just and yes fun. After the 60s it was sexy and risqué even before people began to realise that spanking and feminism can mix. The Sixties was a time when Black and White met […]


I unearthed a slightly new take on the spanking and caning of wrens prior to them being incorporated into the Royal navy proper. I also came across a new expression, ‘marrying the gunner’s daughter,’ as opposed to kissing it, which means getting a caning. There was also some light shed on the official position. The […]
