MBS Spanko Brunch #327

Hello, again, dear friends and welcome to our community brunch.

The dictionary defines the word lore to mean all the facts and traditions about a particular subject that have been accumulated over time through education or experience. Most cultures and communities compile and perpetuate a body of collective knowledge. So it is with spanko lore. For example, we've all heard (and perhaps know from experience) that a spanking on a wet bottom hurts more.

Have you a favorite bit of spanko lore you'd like to share? Whether common or offbeat, let's record it here.

To join in our conversation, just enter your response to our question in the form of a comment below. Once everyone has added their thoughts, I will post an edited summary.

Here is an interesting spanking 'lore'. Did Adam ever spank Eve, for eating the 'forbidden apple'.By spanking I mean did he ever give her 'six of the best', with a cane on her voloptous naked rear end.

Spanking was originally associated with fertility. In ancient Greece, Women who were unable to conceive went to the temple of Juno where the priests of the Greek god Pan spanked them with goat hide whips in an effort to increase their fertility by exciting them sexually.

I've heard it said that the cane is the worst type of spanking...haven't had it done, so I can't say.

Love,

Some nuns, and I think monks as well, used a cord across their own backs as a symbolic (or in some cases, maybe more than symbolic) penance. I've always used this to respond to criticisms that spanking conflicts with Christian beliefs.

@Ana. You can read about how they tortured themselves in the book The Lives of the Saints. The brothers would read it to us during detention.

Spankings hurt more on a cold bottom. I can attest to the truth of this one.

The Roman holiday known as The Lupercalia is my favorite lore. Taking place on February 15th, and being the main reason for the creation, this Roman fertility holiday is famous for the run of The Lupercal Priest. They would carry the skins of sacrificed goats as thongs to strike the palms of women who were looking for luck with childbirth, as well as to ease the pains associated with it.

Legend has it that the women became dissatisfied with only their palms being struck and wanted more intimate parts tended to.

Spanking on a wet bottom definatley stings more as it does also over wet clothing. My lore, is that the most sensetive part of a ladies' derriere is that crease where thigh meets bottom cheek, and the underhang of bottom above it. Not only does the spanking sting much more, but it is just the spot one has to sit on afterwards ! D likes me really well bent over so that my crease is readily available for him. S

WoW! That's interesting, Hermione! That being the case, I'm glad I stayed a closet spanko until after my tubes were tied, bc I was OVERLY fertile!!!!!

Something which I have taken note of, over the years, is the number of spanko tops who are left handed. Have others noticed this? Or is it a false impression on my part?

Regards

Jim,

Anecdotal, I know, but Daddy is left handed:)!

Love,
Kitty

sunnygirl said...

My hubby is left handed too. Maybe it's a trend.

Rattan is considered the best for caning because of it's flexibility and durability.

Whether it's truly 'lore' or just a 'custom', what comes to mind for me is the idea that the person being spanked should count and "thank" the spanker for each spank. I guess this comes from spanking fiction where it gives something to read to keep one engaged other than "ooooh" and "ouch!". Now this idea has taken on a life of its own and shows up in way too many stories and videos. Spankers think it is something they 'should' ask for, but it really ruins the whole thing. It is a "tradition" of sorts, but one that I wish would go away. -- A-Non

Hi Guys … My favorite piece of lore might actually be better defined as a myth and dates back to my schooldays … a rather tomboyish girl in my class had performed an extremely reckless act on a piece of apparatus in the gymnasium resulting in one of the very rare incidents of a girl being publicly spanked (slippered to be more precise) … when interrogated about her experience she was partly belligerent and I suspect somewhat embarrassed … she defiantly announced that she was fine because … “Well everybody knows the loud ones don’t hurt!” … After thirty-five active years I have yet to meet a spankette who subscribes to this school of thinking, so yes it probably is myth rather than lore … Cheers … RH

The old gangster movies of the forties and fifties had cops using the rubber hose on juvenile delinquents because it did not leave tell tale damage or marks. Not true. The rubber hose does work well without significant damage but it does leave parallel dark purple traces like a cane but without the raised welts or deep bruising.

Riley said...

So funny you bring up the example that being spanked on a wet bottom hurts more. I just had to explain this to my boyfriend this morning! He started spanking me in the shower and I kept telling him it hurt more. He didn't understand why, then tried it on himself, then was proud that he found himself a new tool for me. Hmff!

Back to your question...I'd say that over-the-knee is the most traditional method of spanking. It just seems so "classic." Reminds me of those "I Love Lucy" episodes where her husband throws her over.

Ana said...

@Anonymous: lol...I have to agree with you there. The counting seems to be in every story/video, and it gets a bit old. It actually gets more tedious to listen to than the "oww" and "ouch!"es.
