MBS Spanko Brunch #247

Hi everyone and welcome to another weekend celebration of this pastime we love (or at least love to hate). Here's a great question that I don't think we've covered before.

Many spanking connoisseurs divide implements and the sensations they deliver into sting and thud. While this is a somewhat simplistic categorization and there is plenty of gray area, I think this distinction has value.

Do you and your partner prefer stinging spankings or thuddy spankings? Why? Does your answer vary with the purpose of the spanking?


I would love to hear about your preferences and rationale. To join the conversation, just enter your response in the form of a comment below. Once everyone has spoken, I will post an edited summary.

This is great,I went to my first Dungeon last night with My Sir. We bought two acrylic wands (yeah I know before I have said I hate plastic)the thinner of the wands was VERY stingy and I did NOT like it at all,I usually like sting,the thicker wand was extremely thuddy,and reminded me of just how much I LOVE thud! My Sir tends to like to give me stingier spankings,but seeing how happy the THUD made me last night I think I see more thud in my future. Oh and we then bought ANOTHER thick acrylic wand. :)

I much prefer the thud of an implement, but enjoy switching (no pun intended) from one stingy implement to a heavier one. There is one particular wooden paddle that offers way too much sting for me to enjoy; and on the opposite end, there is another paddle that offers too much thud. I like the middle ground: the stingy thud of a thick, well-worn belt.

D prefers implements with sting and zing that make me dance over his lap. But he usually give us both what we want and offers up the strap as reward.

I'm not really sure of the distinction. Some stingy implements hurt much more than others, and so do some thuddy ones. But I prefer to start out with a light, stingy implement like a wooden ruler or leather slapper, then progress to a heavier wooden paddle or leather strap for some deep thuds. It's always fun to alternate sting and thud; it keeps my mind from wandering during a spanking.

I tend to stay in the intermediate range. The hand, IMHO, has a nice balance. I'd put it on the stingy side, but with more thud than a belt or switch. For a little more thud, I'd go with a hairbrush, but beyond that we get a little too thuddy for my tastes.

(Sigh...) I think I need to experience more before I make a judgement. xxx

D dosen't care if the implement is stingy or thuddy as long as he is using it on my bottom. There is a blurred line between stingy and thuddy; first in line for the stingys is probably the hand, whilst Bonnie's infamous MOAP probably leads the thuddies. I prefer stingys; thuddies seem to hurt without raising a nice sexy glow; they can leave your bottom bruised and aching for some time, and cause major sitting problems. Stingys can sting like hell, but are also arousing and sexy, and I just love having a bottom feeling smarting and puffed up, jiggling beneath my skirt, wondering if passers by could guess that my precious rear was hot and stinging ! Stingys don't really give sitting problems, allthough D loves watching me squirming on my chair, if her takes me out after a spanking, as sitting for some time hots up the sting in my cheeks. D & S.

I prefer somewhere in the gray area but leaning more towards stingy. Leather straps/belts are my favorites. We have the 15 inch double down strap from cane-iac & it is by far my favorite implement~a lot of sting but heavy enough for a wee bit of thud with it. We have a few paddles & I like the little plastic stingy one the best, just a small amount of thud & a whole LOT of sting! (This is a great topic, Bonnie. Now it's all I'm going to think about all day) "Big Smile" :)

We have one wooden paddle that burns deep down while putting a sting on top. You know hours later you have been paddled long after the stingy sensation fades.

The answer for me does vary with the scene or reason for the spanking. The obvious extremes are the cane for a stingy spanking, and a large paddle for a thuddy one. I find the thuddy ones are more pleasurable, the cane always bites hard, and leaves the longer lasting feeling for me. My partner likes to cane me, particularly if She thinks I need taking in hand.

Hi Guys … An interesting topic and one that MBJ and I have discussed many times over the years … being a refugee from the last great cane generation the cane has always been my instrument of choice so she is familiar with a wide variety of whippy sticks of various weights and dimensions … perhaps because we exclusively engage in role-play she says she likes the cane (likes may be a little deceiving) as getting six of the best adds a degree of reality to the fantasy … I recently purchased a hand-crafted cane from a New York purveyor of such items that has the most wonderfully ominous whistle as it slices through the air and makes a wonderfully rotund sound on contact … MBJ reports that it has the highest degree of sting that she has ever experienced but so far she has not removed it from the toybox … at the other end of the spectrum some years ago I purchased a Reform School Strap from Raven Hill Studios, it has a long and rather broad leather shaft and a beautifully crafted handle … this thing is the ultimate in thud technology … MBJ has to be bent over a sturdy piece of furniture when I use this bad-boy as she says she feels like it will lift her clean out of her shoes and knock her clear across the room due to its heft … however, despite the explosive sound it makes on contact she tells me that the after-effects are nowhere near as lasting as the aforementioned cane … in between there are of course various paddles, straps, riding crops and one particular cheap wooden spatula that she says provides the worst sting of all and she always looks a little disgruntled when it is brought into play … sorry for such a long comment … Cheers … RH

My toy box is not very large. I have a beautiful boar bristle wooded hair brush from England. It has a convex curve to the wooden side and provides a stinging slap when used with the correct wrist action. I like it at the beginning of our sessions; it gets the bottom warmed up and still has enough energy to get deeper into the bottom for long lasting effect. The second toy is a wooden paddle. This is the thud instrument. The blows really sink into my bottom and have a very long lasting feel. The third toy which I like to be used last is my resin cane. It will whistle through the air and produce a nice welt and sting even after a very sound spanking from the other two implements. It can carry through the numbing sensation after being spanked by the paddle… it is especially effective after having sex and being turned over to receive a final spanking which always hurts more after the sexual tension/release has been removed.

Since I am spanked as discipline rather than for play / sex, I rarely 'enjoy' any implement. I can take much more of a thuddy implement than stingy though. I was surprised that the thin whippy canes hurt me much more than the scarier looking thicker variety.

I enjoy the stingy spankings of a light paddle, switch or hand. My husband likes to leave a memorable bruise and spanking for later. I agree with some of the earlier posts that I can take more with a thuddy implement though.
