MBS Spanko Brunch #286

Happy weekend, my friends! I'm always on the lookout for spanking-oriented brunch questions that we haven't considered before. Our question this week comes from a male reader who thought, by virtue of the facts that (a) I have a lot of experience with being spanked, and (b) I possess a big backside, that I might know the answer. Well, I don't, but I figured you might.

Do spankees with larger bottoms feel less pain or more pain during a spanking than those with average bottoms?

Theory One: The spankee with the large bottom feels less pain because the swats are spread out over a wider area.

Theory Two: The spankee with the large bottom feels less pain because the additional padding serves as protection.

Theory Three: The spankee with the large bottom feels more pain because the greater surface area has more nerve endings.

Theory Four: The spankee with the large bottom feels more pain because most spankers decide consciously or subconsciously that they require a greater number of harder swats.

Do you accept any of these arguments, or do we all feel pretty much the same sting?


To join our conversation, just enter your thoughts as a comment below. Once everyone has registered their responses, I will post an edited summary.

Hmmm. Never really thought about that. Very intriguing question! I would think that it all depends on each individual's level of pain tolerance more so than their size. Also, even if there is a larger surface, a spanker could still land the swats in the same area & not necessarily spread them around. So, I think it just depends on each situation rather than being a "larger" vs "smaller" issue. I'll be interested to read what others think~good one!

As an athelete, I have almost no body fat and my glutes are rock hard. I feel the sting of a spanking on my skin. With any wood implement, the stinging pain is intense. Belts and straps also cause a stinging pain at the skin level, but I need more strokes to enter subspace. I hate thumpy implements, they hurt my muscles quickly and result in a much longer recovery. With that said, I believe that a larger bottom can withstand more swats with heavier wooden implemnts than a smaller one.

Perception of pain is a highly individual and personal experience, and the size of a person's bottom is just one of many variables. How we feel pain can vary from day to day, for many reasons.

In order to test the above theories, you would need a series of subjects who possess one large buttock and one that's at least 25% smaller.

I'd love to know the results, as well as where you found the necessary participants:)

ok ok, I have a small, bony butt! I have to say that smaller bottoms get it worse then bigger ones. After an extended spanking session, my butt hurts! Not just the sting but it kinda aches! So I vote that us skinny asses have it worse!

joeyred51 said...

Agree with ShafersGirl.

Meow said...

To me each spank hurts, so the amount of pain depends on the strength of each swat and the total number given, not the area that is covered. There should be some kind of formula for this if we want to get scientific! (grin)

JW said...

Oh goodness! Perception of pain is such a complicated scenario. I'm not sure scientifically there would be any reasonable way to separate all the variables out to where you were simply dealing with small or large. I have been spanked when I was skinny, and I have been spanked when I was...ummmm....not so skinny. I don't think I have ever perceived it to be better or worse overall.

Daisychain said...

I don't think it has anything to do with size. People have vastly different pain thresholds; indeed the same person will have a greater pain tolerance at different times...
Also, for me, anyway, I find it hurts from swat 1 if I know I have upset or hurt his feelings, or angered him, or disappointed him. Harder swats are easily tolerated, even enjoyed, when it is for fun or good girl, or even maintenance! It has a profound effect on me psychologically, when I know he is not pleased with me, and therefore I am in a whole different mindset.
Great question though, good fun!! xxx

I agree with the others who say that it really is down to the perception of the spankee. I personally have not found that the pain has changed that much over the years. I started out with a very skinny bottom and now having put on a fair amount of weight have a larger, although I hope not fat, backside. Not sure that this proves the argument either way though.

Theory One- the swats aren't really spread out that much even though I provide a greater surface area than some. The focus is usually the lower half of my bottom and the sit spots.

Theory Two- Maybe I'm a wuss but it sure doesn't feel like "extra padding" gives me more protection. A spanking is a spanking. It can hurt a lot.

Theory Three- See my reply to theory one, the spanking is usually focused to specific areas so I don't know that this would apply.

Theory Four- Not sure about that, I guess I'd have to be spanked alongside a smaller person to determine if I was getting it harder. I don't think that is the case though, most tops play to the tolerance level of the bottom and that wouldn't necessarily have anything to do with their size.

Haha! I have nothing to say that wasn't already said, but I couldn't not comment. In my opinion, size has nothing to do with it.

baby girl said...

Still a spanking virgin - but will let you know once it happens/ BTW, I do have a big booty!

Dr. Ken said...

I don't think it's the size of the bottom, but rather how the spanker goes about it. It all depends on how hard or light the swats are, what implements get used, how they're applied and how much strength gets put behind each swing, etc.

Yes, I've known a lady with a very small bottom who could only take the lightest of spankings, but I've also known a few ladies with larger bootys who were the same way. And, of course, the opposite is true--I've known smaller and larger spankees who could take quite a lot!

Ultimately, I think it all comes down to the same sting in the end....

Smaller bottoms feel it more . I always prefer to spank a small bottom, purely a personal preference. I have a tiny bottom so when I switch I can definitely confirm it hurts a lot !! Especially that hairbrush, which I also love to apply ;)

For me Bonnie, when I spank a woman who has a large bare bottom, I consider her naked derriere, sexually voluptous. So congratulations, to you, for I am sure that Ron is in heaven when he wallops, such a beautiful rear end.

I definatley prefer to spank an ample bottom; it bounces and jiggles in an exciting way, and one can spank as hard as one wants without doing any real damage. As regards pain this is easily adjusted; concentrate every whack on exactly the same spot, and madam is going to have a very sore spot, which she will not enjoy at all; spread the spanking over every square inch of her well spread haunches, and her rear will smart and burn with a sexy heat, which S actually admits she enjoys.

Dear Bonnie, the question made me laugh. Looks like you are getting some - hm - cough - "funny" answers. Personally, I think, where bones are not well covered with flesh, the pain gets very unpleasant (even of not necessarily stronger).

I'm not sure what the right answer to this is. I only know that I have had an enforced period of abstinence lately and I just ache to feel the whole thing again. However, my bone coverage may have been slightly increased recently due to holiday over indulgence in frites and crepes - maybe I should conduct a controlled experiment? Alice
