MBS Spanko Brunch #322

Hello again, and welcome to the latest installment of our weekly conversation. St. Patrick's Day makes me think of pleated plaid kilts. Those kilts remind me of pleated plaid school uniforms. And school uniforms invariably lead me to this question.

Do traditional corporal punishment scenes appeal to you?
Why or why not?


To join the discussion, you can enter your response as a comment below. Once everyone has spoken, I'll post an edited summary.

Yes, for me they do appeal to me. I guess the reason is because it feels/appears more realistic than something staged to be primarily sexually focused.

Definitely yes, Growing up on a farm in the 50's they bring back memories of actual spankings, I and my peers received as a matter of course in life, both in school and at home.

Absolutely. I have read The Punishment Book that contains many traditional corporal punishment stories and enjoyed all of them. I am developing a scene for my visit to St Margaret's Academy in April that will involve the punishment of two ladies and me for transgressions committed by us. It will involve a punishment referral several hours before the scene and a group punishment.

Thanks Bonnie for another great discussion topic.

Regarding scenes, they are, for me, the most appealing. Why is a more difficult answer, but my sense of things is that it's a combination of two things: 1) I subscribe to the 'hardwired' theory that for many of us our fascination with spanking is somehow genetically embedded in us, and 2) my real exposure to spanking (to 'trigger' the predisposition into activity) was paddling at school. I grew up in an era when it was the generally accepted form of correction, and so it was not much less than a daily occurrence for someone in some classroom. And while I would work to suppress the outward expression, when it happened to someone I was ardently fascinated. I think that it probably shaped the future direction of the kink. Further (and perhaps also an effect of that first shaping), I do not associate spanking with sexual connotations or situations. For me it wraps around aspects like family and school guidance and discipline, and the deeper connotations of those in raising someone to be a better person, both for themselves and their families, and for society. It ties into the sense of justice an the separation of right and wrong. Finally, when we consider how we dabble around with it as adults in the scene, it all ultimately funnels into the fact that the scenes that I like most, perhaps exclusively, are pretty much all traditional domestic and school oriented situations.

Yes. :) I think explaining why is as difficult as explaining why someone prefers nuts or not, but probably I like traditional corporal punishment scenes for many of the reasons as RG. Probably because school is big for me and spanking isn't sexual. I think there's something selfless and almost noble about a disciplinarian who gives guidance without the benefit of a sexual relationship.

Bonnie,It was everyday in our class forgotten homework ,gymgear woodwork apron.All got a wacking from various implements,one teacher would write oxo on his paddle in chalk so for the rest of the day everyone in school would know you had been whacked as you sported oxo on the seat of your trousers. from davetouchintoes

Yes and no. Yes, if my Susan dresses in a school uniform, pleated skirt. white shirt with tie, black knickers and stockings etc, and bends over for a sound slippering on her ripe bottom, it's a big turn on for me and I hope her, but she is of a certain age, I won't say what , but spanking of real school girls, is firmly no,no, and no turn on for either of us.

Fred Bloggs said...

Not for me. My school days were in the 1960s and early 1970s and corporal punishment was a regular feature. It's just a big turn off.

Country Spanker said...

Without a doubt, as to why I have not got the foggiest idea.

tradional discipline role play is not part of our paddling episodes. those are based on current actions. i may have discovered my corpaoral intrests from a traditional situation. in hi-school i recieved 6 swats from a tall athletic female teacher. our house rule @ home was 3 for 1 if paddled at school and on bare bottom. fearful of 18 from dads paddle, i lied about both the paddling and the # of swats. caught in those lies gave me an extra set for each. 30 swats later i was blistered not sitting easy. i actually missed out an losing my virginity a few days later as i didn't want to explain the marks to the young lady. that episode created an intrest n corporal punishment that is still burning my bottom 40 years later.

Respecting Mistress said...

Traditional in as much as the formality and ritual of scholastic-style punishments. The apprehension, knowing that there's an alloted time for the appointment. The dress code, whatever it might be. The lecture. The act of baring the bottom. The un-erring delivery of the punishment.Everythnig adds to a much more profound corrective measure than a cold, on-the-spot whacking that neither part has the time to consider.

Hermione said...

Yes, they push all the right buttons for me. Not so much the uniform, just the idea and the ritual.

It isn't something that's a part of our play, but it's the type of spanking literature I prefer.

sixofthebest said...

The traditional spanking scenes, such as business, school-girls, uniform, or domestic naughtiness, are my favorite. I find such pleasureable scenes turn me on.

Spankedhortic II said...

Yes I like them. Especially ones like, school and military scenes. I like the formality of an oft repeated ceremony and the sense of ritual, that these play acts have.

Spanky said...

These scenes push my buttons too, especially when school uniforms are involved. There's just something special about plaid skirts and stockings for me.

Lea said...

Sometimes. If I'm in the right headspace for that, it can be a fun roleplay. But corporal punishment often involves canes and canes are just mean! :-(

Poppy said...

I am totally in two minds about them. I love it being me, being the girl who is finally held to account but struggle with that as it is so intense. The uniform, the authority, the stern punishment all are key themes for me.
I think as times goes on and I become more confident in my ability to take a caning (I struggle if it is too hard) then these scenes will be fully explored. I blush to think of it.

Loki_Darksong said...

Yes they do. Has far back as I can remember,I have always had a fascination with such scenes. I have collected clips and stories regarding this type of scenario from all over the Net.

There is an appeal to the structure and protocol associated with traditional scenes. They are no nonsense from the beginning to end and there is no mistaking them for an erotic substitute. Such scenes are excellent if one desires some form of a cathartic release. They invoke an emotional response that is both frightening and seductive. Almost like taking a ride on a roller coaster, or watching a horror film.

We do not do role playing, so a "scene" per se is not involved in our relationship. But, traditional corporate punishment is definitely closely related to what we are trying to do with DD. Especially when we were first beginning and trying to get comfortable with DD and its upsetting of our traditional gender roles, the formality of traditional corporal punishment helped. Lists of spankable offenses, allocating a number of swats per offense, having to present oneself for punishment at the ordered time. using a traditional wooden "school paddle" -- all of that added to what we were trying to do -- putting Anne in charge and subjecting me to her authority. And, yes, thinking about the traditional corporal punishment scenarios gives me the same butterflies in my stomach that I got on those occasions when I had to make the long march to the principal's office after misbehaving in class.

Hi Guys … Being a veteran of the Last Great British Cane Generation the many disciplinary rituals that surrounded the corporal punishments I observed/encountered during the late-sixties and early-seventies augmented my burgeoning youthful interest in all things spanking … those early experiences doubtless fashioned my life-long interest in the more theatrical and ritualistic aspects of theme-plays and my particular predilection for women dressed in uniforms … fortunately MBJ is of a creative bent and has always been kind enough to accommodate and indulge my fancies so at Chez Humphries ‘Whops and Clobber’ rule ok! … Cheers … RH

Riley said...

I used to think that the traditional scene would turn me on, but for some reason it actually doesn't! It feels a little forced to me, I'm not much of a role player in general though, and very much a realist. I like to play the role of "myself." :)

Daisychain said...

NO, because the traditional corporal punishment scene conjures up caning.
Canes, (sometimes even reading about caning,) cause me anxiety, even panic attacks; they make me feel sick in my stomach. They are an absolute no-no in my life.

A'marie said...

Yes and no. ;)

I always felt inferior in elementary through high school; my brothers and cousins far surpass me in terms of intelligence, and it can be a bit daunting to constantly be measured against a standard you're not capable of competing against. So, on the one hand, that sort of scene just makes me queasy.

But fast-forward to college? One on one with a professor? Oh my goodness did those types of fantasies repeatedly play out in my mind for the last several years of my schooling. But they were always punishment scenes for the type of infraction I was infamous for. Never getting to class on time, or not getting there at all, or perhaps being a little exasperated with the other students, etc. Nothing to do with how intelligent I might or might not be. Hmm, I may have to revisit some of those fantasies. :D
