MBS Spanko Brunch #99

Spankings hurt! As I am regularly reminded, they're supposed to hurt. Yet, each of us who receives spankings reacts to the experience in our own unique way. Today's spanko brunch deals with those reactions and specifically, the resulting vocalizations.

When receiving a spanking, what sounds do you or your partner make? Does the spankee scream, cry, shout, beg, whimper, laugh, moan, or maybe something else? To what extent does the reaction depend upon the circumstances (such as the reason for the spanking, the severity, the implements employed, words used by the spanker, and so forth)? Are you ever surprised by the words or noises a spanking induces?

I invite you to join our brunch discussion and I hope you will. To add your voice, you can leave a comment below, send me an e-mail, or post a message on your own blog.

A. tells me I tend to say "ouch" a lot. I often feel like I'm grunting, squealing, and whimpering but apparently he doesn't hear much of that. I do have a bad habit of groaning when told how many strokes I'm going to get, which then gets me more strokes. But I suppose that's before the spanking rather than during. ::grin::

When I first started getting spanked I was probably a bit too stoic and didn't make much noise at all, as if making noise would be impolite. I know it's unnerved at least one top. I suppose in some ways, making noise during a spanking is something I'm still working on.

I'm a noisy spankee! I yelp, whimper, squeal, complain, beg, moan, giggle, and all manner of vocal expression.

It doesn't matter how much fun I'm having (erotic spankings) or not having (disciplinary ones), I have to let it all out. Spankings hurt, even when it's that good hurt, and I let him know just how much or how good.

I wasn't always this vocal. Before Dan, I used to grit my teeth and take it without hardly a whimper. Dan likes hearing me though so I've learned to let go. I like it better this way because I can really get into the whole experience when I can vocalize how I feel.

Spankings around here can be pretty noisy! I'm often surprised by how much, but I like it.

sleepygirl said...

i got my first real spanking the other day. (some day i'll have to tell you, bonnie, what a blessing and a help it was to find your blog!) i didn't know what to expect out of myself, especially since we have to be kinda quiet around here.

gasps, whimpers, low guttural groans...a whole litany of little sounds, well muffled into the pillow, of course.

ach! i can't wait to see what i might sound like if beloved and i ever get some time alone!

Bonnie there were a whole gambit of noises, erotic spanking, from giggles, groans, moans, sighs and on the few occasions Mel would orgasm, screams, laughter and tears.
Punishments were quieter, ouch, sucking in of breath, usually ending in tears, but as I've said before after the early years, punishments were rare. During scene's Mel would act well, counting if requested, oh sirs, if a school girl, sobbing, screaming quietly, and loving every minute.
The sounds certainly added to the fun.

Lori said...

This certainly depends on the type of spanking but whether erotic or punishment, there are the usual AHHH'S, oww's and ugh's. For some reason I don't cry but most the sounds I make are crying sounds that would make you think I have tears running down my face. This is usually accompanied by or alternated with heavy breathing. There have been times of screaming and pleading only to be told to get back in place or there will be extra.

luna said...

The amount of noise I make depends on the reason for the spanking. I'm more stoic during a punishment spanking than an erotic one. I am normally a noisy person when in a scene or during sex. I'm either entertaining to the neighbors or really really annoying. Yet I still can look them in the eye when I see them outside.

For an erotic spanking I generally do a lot of moaning and groaning, sighs and hissing. I know that my sounds really turn Master on so I probably have learned to make even more noise than I usually would on my own. When the pain of the spanking starts stirring my endorphins I generally change my sounds to quieter moans and groans. I have periods where I don't make any sounds at all. When the pain/pleasure combo gets ramped up I get really loud again, sometimes cussing and screaming, wiggling and jiggling my ass as the strikes are laid down. When things are going really well I start giggling and can laugh and laugh-snort pretty regularly. (I hate it when I snort... I laugh even more when I do.)

For a punishment spanking; which is always a caning I'm completely silent and try to be reposed. I take the caning with silence no matter how bad it hurts. I hate the cane; it's not meant to be pleasant so I don't want to confuse the punishment with moans or hisses. I do swallow pretty hard between each one.

The implements used will bring out different sounds too. Hard wood paddles generally get the grunts and groans and deeper sounding noises. Hand spanking gets the most varied noises. Any reaction can happen from sighs to yelps but the most common is always the moan/groan.

I used to be mortified when I'd start giggling during play. I couldn't stop myself from doing it but I thought that Master would think I'm mocking his methods or something. Turns out that's a natural reaction to the endorphins for some people. So, I'm a giggler. In fact the giggles also turn to outright silliness when I come down from that high.

It usually starts out pretty quite and moves to the ouch ow thing, then a little begging with it hurts so much, please stop and as he heats up for the finish the screams into the bedding will start along with some kicking, this stage can last a while depending on how many I am in need of. I tend to not want to get too vocal because I don't want to scare him into stopping to early. We are still getting adjusted to what I can really take or need. I tend to not cry but at times if it is intense enough I have gotten tears in my eyes. But the learning process can be fun!

Jeana said...

Most of the time for me I either moan or say ouch. Like Sally I'm scared to be too dramatic about it because I don't want him to stop and I know he worries. Sometimes I want to scream though and I'm sure I will eventually. I haven't cried yet but I think I could if it was a little bit more intense. I did have tears in my eyes Friday night which is the first time he has spanked me to the point I actually wanted it to stop. It was great. Im sore which has never really happened before. Anyways, back to answering the question, I hope I will get to a point in the future where I can make more sounds and not worry about him stopping. Until then, I guess I'll just be kinda quiet.


Paige Tyler said...

Though the spankings my hubby gives me are all erotic in nature, they still sting! Usually I say things like "Owwww!" or "Oh!" most of the time, but I also moan a lot, too!


Greenwoman said...

I have not had a spanking for punishment since I was a child. All the spankings I've had have been for emotional balance and for sexual there's little talking. A question now and then to ask me how I am doing and my response, perhaps. The sounds of my breathing...the sounds of a moan when I become aroused by the spanking. Perhaps with a playful spanking, there will be giggling and laughing squeals. After the spanking, there may be crying as an emotional release.

Mary said...

I grunt, yell, giggle, scream, pant, grown, cry ouch, and "stop" and all to no avail. If for play - I may mouth off, and be a brat, but if for punishment - such behavior usually gets me more than I barganed for so I try to refrain.

Abby said...

I really enjoy the auditory aspects of spanking so all types of sound are key for me--from my husband's voice talking to me to the sound of his hand or implement against my skin to the sound I make in response. I know I squeal and cry out "Ah!" alot, but I am most conscious of saying "ow ow ow ow ow" because I'll realize I'm still saying "ow" after it stops stinging, but I've gotten into saying it.

Our house is very close to the house next door, but we've given up on worrying about it. They still say hi to us on the street even though we've had bouts of me downright screaming with each stroke, so I've become comfortable with my vocalizations, whatever they may be. I think my husband would worry more if I was quiet without him telling me to be. For me, quiet means that I'm not in the right mental place or am upset about something.

I did try an experiment the other day in which I tried to moan rather than make a pained noise during a strapping. It changed the experience completely! It only goes to prove that mind-body connection that we all know exists during a spanking. I'm sure this tactic wouldn't work for all spankings (some just aren't going to feel good no matter what sound you make), but it brought a whole new level of awareness of how I react to them.

What a good question, Bonnie!

One that I feel that I can actually contribute too!

I know compared to the other spankee's that my Dom spanks on a regular basis, I am a very active/noisy spankee.

Most of my closer spakee friends are very stoic, but I am the exact oppsite.

Depending on the mood of the spanking and my perosnal mood I can be quite vocal.

If my Dom and I are doing a playful spanking I found myself kicking my feet, saying 'ow' 'ouchs' or my most favorite one. 'what do you think YOUR'RE doing back there?'

If we're in a serious scene, I try to be as wellbehaved as possible, though I still kick my feet up and try to protect my bum, accompanied with some "go easy." or "I really don't want it"

To which my Dom usually tells me "Feet down." and "Relax."

So I would not consider myself extremley vocal, but I am not stoic by any means. It really does all depend on the atmosphere of the spanking scene and my mood throughout the day.

New Beginnings said...

I am right there with Sally and Jeana. I would love to be more vocal (that is totally against my nature, when anything hurts me in any way I become very quiet), I love the idea of being able to let go and cry, yell, beg him to stop -- and have him ignore me!! I have no doubt that if I yelled 'Oh, stop, owww! that hurts" he would stop. And who wants that!!!!

I have hope, you never know what the future might bring!

Bonnie, I answered on my own blog:

Hope you are doing well! Sara

Cassie said...

When he first started I used to cuss a blue streak! That didn't last long when he would burn a blister then inform me that the spanking wouldn't start until I stopped cursing! I am ususally pretty vocal thought - telling him to stop, it hurts, he's killing me, in between the laughing and owwwwwing!

But if I don't think I should be getting a spanking I won't give in and I try not to make a sound. I have also learned to keep my mouth shut if he is really annoyed - he lectures and anything I might say just gets him talking and spanking longer!!



I love to be spanked hard enough to be made to go arghh loudly and I would never do that falsly. unfortunately practicalities get in the way, often play is in a private home, with neigbours, a street outside and all the other things. In these circumstances it is still possible to play a bit hard and I usualy controle my urge to shout out by using deep breathing, so there is usually a lot of huffing and puffing when play is getting good.


Anon VII said...

Ours tend to run the gamut, but the ones she does most often, and the kind that add to my excitement most, are giggles during playful or lightly erotic spankings and, during more intensely erotic and stress-relief ones, explosive exhalations of breath (sometimes with exclamations like "OH!" or "GOSH!"). When she's torturing me by bending over with hands on knees for the paddle, she often does the rapid heel-drumming on the floor, usually between the first two swats, as I make her wait several seconds after the first one to let the initial shock wear off and the burn to hit. Heel-drumming is often accompanied by a long "OOOH!" or a string of short, reiterated ones. Since we don't do punishment, I don't know what she'd do under those circumstances, although I suspect she'd hiss and snarl like an angry cat, especially since her appearance and manner are both somewhat feral.

Well now, I'm a bit new to all this, and probably a decade or two younger than the other other posters.

My first spankings as an adult, were with my best friend. He knows me very well, my naughty little girl streak as well as my dominant personality. It started with teasing and raising his hand to me. Then it progressed. These spankings were always public, as in at a party or with a few friends and I'd be "misbehaving" so he'd scoop me over his lap and give me a few slaps. As he's gay and I'm female this was entirely a game. I would squeal, giggle and play-act that I was hurt.

My current boyfriend witnessed this once and he jokingly said he could do better. Later that night I took him up on the offer. Well. I scream and moan and groan. It's like an orgasm (sometimes it IS an orgasm...)

Well that was a bit long, but cause I'm new I thought I should explain a bit.

Thanks for having me, I've been reading for a little while.


Sub Nouveau said...

I think I would under normal circumstances be very loud, but my living arranagements involve a neighbor who's bedroom is adjacent to mine, and very thin walls. Instead I tend to curse into my arm, blanket, under my breath. I also long to cry, but I can never seem to get it to come out until after the events are over.

Terpsichore said...

I asked my husband this question and his response was that I am mostly quiet but that he thinks I "could" probably make a lot of noise. :-) That being said other than a few playful spanks during lovemaking I am still awaiting my first real spanking so whether I am really noisy or not is yet to be determined. Plus there is the matter of the two little sleeping children nearby whenever we have that rare moment of intimacy, so noise may not be an option for a while. :-)

Bonnie said...

My reactions can be all over the map depending upon the situation. If I’m into the spanking and enjoying the proceedings, I might coo, giggle, moan, or describe for Randy how I feel. If the intensity of a spanking is a bit more than I feel I want at that moment, I may exclaim ten variants of “Ow!”

If the spanking is intended to be therapeutic, I’m usually pretty quiet. At those times, I’m deep within my own head and concentrating on accepting the pain and making it my own. When it’s foreplay, I tend to pant and moan as the desire washes over me.

One change that I’ve noticed is that Randy and I now talk far more during spankings (and during sex for that matter) than we did in earlier years. He finds it a turn on when I tell him how it feels for me. At the same time, his words of encouragement help me to graciously accept all the of gifts he chooses to bestow.
