Spanking Theatre

Spanking stories for the theatre between your ears



I very much want and need a good hard spanking, on my bare bottom of course. My only problem with this (aside from a reluctant fiance) is that i have a very low pain tolerance, a history of abuse, and ptsd resulting from such. Pain is my biggest trigger, and i find that i can actually handle much less than i would like to without having a panic attack. Do you have any recommendations on how to overcome this? Safety and trust are not issues here, it’s entirely about pain

The science of spanking is quite straightforward, pain is proportional is to the force of the impact. and Newton’s 2nd Law says that’s the product of mass and acceleration.

So if you want a less painful spanking, you have three options:

  1. reduce mass (use a lighter spanking implement)
  2. reduce speed (less backlift when swinging the implement)
  3. or, reduce the experienced impact force (using a shock absorber)

For instance, why not try a wooden spatula with a foam cleaning pad (like those you use to clean dirty dishes) tied around it. That will allow you to experience the ‘blow’ of each spank as it lands, but the foam will dissipate the force long before it reaches your skin.

Once you’re comfortable with the sensations, try replacing the foam with something thinner, like wrapping a dishcloth (or two) around the spatula.

An alternative approach, which achieves the same effect is to be spanked over thick clothing. I can remember once playing with a nervous spankee who wore half a dozen pairs of panties under her skirt.

After every dozen spanks, I flipped up her skirt to inspect her, before scolding her for trying to evade her punishment. Each time she was ‘caught’, she would signal she was happy to keep playing by lowering the outermost pair of her panties. And our game would continue.

By the time I reached her final pair of panties, they were soaked, and she got what she’d been yearning for on her bare bottom at last.

Making the muffled sensations part of the game, really helps when either participant is nervous.

Sometimes, you just need to play gradually, allowing time to adjust to new sensations and establish new levels of comfort.

That also means giving your own partner the confidence to participate in physical play. I’d recommend sharing the following posts with them, so they know what you need from them, and why it’s important to you:

Spanking is playtime.

Get yourselves comfortable, and you’ll both have a great time.

I have a question… I’ve read a lot about bdsm. And i find it very interesting and hopefully would like to try it, however the thought of spanking reminds me of my parents spanking me as a child… And i dont like the thought of pain. How do you differentiate sexual spanking from punishment spanking? I think for myself i wouldnt be able to handle it but reading your stories has me second guessing the thought


What an excellent question.

What’s the difference between a sexual spanking and a punishment spanking?

In a word, the difference is play.

Once we could spend days just exploring, playing games and having fun. But then life got all serious! Luckily, at about the same age, we discover an exciting new side of ourselves: our sexuality. For those with a healthy notion of sex, it’s a wonderful adventure playground, somewhere we can let our imaginations run free, be someone different, break taboos and do something naughty.

A sexual spanking is motivated by this playfulness, the desire to have fun.

Whereas a punishment spanking is motivated by deterrence, the infliction of pain is meant as a reminder: don’t do that again.

This context is all-important, like all games in an adventure playground, sometimes you might fall off and get the odd bruise, but the enjoyment of play makes the odd bump worthwhile.

And the pleasure derived from spanking is subtle. Some people feel a buzz from discomfort, like those who enjoy extremely hot food; others enjoy donning a new persona through role-playing. There’s a reason this blog is called Spanking Theatre, it’s not just the theatre between your ears, it’s also the theatre you can create in your own bedroom. Together you and your partner can improvise an endless number of intimate dramas; share erotic games and wonderful secret adventures. Imagine playing out a scene over successive evenings, as you deepen the characters, and explore each others’ imaginations.

But why spanking?

Spanking has an innate ritual and theatre that makes it a rich seam for role-playing. Some things just seem to be intrinsically erotic: nudity, shame, the heady cocktail of fear, excitement and humiliation. Then there’s the power of commanding or being commanded to do something with sexual connotations, such as undressing or bending over. All these help give spanking the magical ingredient of erotic charge.

Hence in a sexual spanking, the mood is informal and theatrical. There’s a story being told, and the aim is to tantalise and tease the senses. Compare this with the joyless execution of a punishment spanking.

The other key difference is that sexual spankings are consensual. When you partner tells you you’ve been a very naughty girl, and you deserve a good hard spanking, you can – at any time – tell them you don’t want to play anymore. And that’s fine.

Play involves trust, it’s why even the severest spanking is never torture. It’s important that deep down, she enjoys how a spanking makes her feel, and she knows he loves and cares about her enough to give it to her.

As a result, a sexual spanking results in positive emotions like arousal and intimacy. Whereas a punishment spanking only generates negative emotions such as fear and resentment. I’ve never once put my fingers between a spanked lady’s legs and found her to be dry.

Bright red bottoms make eye-catching porn photos, but don’t think every spanking has to end in tears and hot painful cheeks. Some might gain more satisfaction from the psychological aspects of spanking, the ritual, the shame, the surrender of control. And that’s fine too. Some might enjoy just a few taps, just enough to make their bottoms tingle; whilst others might be very aroused by the mere threat of a spanking, the cool slipper rubbing across their bare bum, as she waits in delicious anticipation for a whack that might never come.

It’s your playground, you make up the rules.

And I’ll continue to whisper ideas into your ear.

I hope this helps.

My confession is that I’ve discovered a wonderful way to please myself in the shower. The handheld sprayer pointed directly at my spread lips works wonders and is a fun way to play with temperature as well. It’s so easy to edge myself to climax. It also makes for easy cleanup so no one discovers my dirty little secret…

Indeed, the shower-head is another everyday item with secret erotic connotations for many. 

The sensations on highly sensitised skin, particularly after slit and mound have been meticulously shaved, are quite delightful.

Then there’s the thrilling jeopardy of playing outside the bedroom, masturbating illicitly, whilst you should really be getting washed.

Playing with the temperature dial, slowly numbing your clit with cooling water, until you’re desperate to reawaken it with a jet of hot indulgent torrents. And then dialing down before you get too close, and then doing it all again.

You’re quite aware that your deceit deserves a well-smacked bottom.

You deserve to be spanked whilst still dripping wet, knowing that a wet-bottom spanking is always twice as sore.

But that only makes you push the shower-head closer…


Every Princess deserves her own Throne.

Here’s how to create one of your own…

Leading Lady


Come be my leading lady

I’ve a one-off erotic drama

Improvised and unscripted

Created just for you

Don’t worry, I’ll direct things

No need to learn the words

Or justify your filthiness

I know what you can’t express

There’s no shame upon this stage

Turn your mind off, and just be

Nor any need for rolling cameras

My keen blue eyes see further

Than any lens of glass can see

Peering deep inside to glimpse

That secret side

You love to hide

Come star in my performance

I need only one

Be my focus of attention

Be the centre of the sun

Naughty girls should watch spankings

Naughty girls should watch spankings,

and so learn what happens

to those who misbehave.


Naughty girls should never watch spankings

with needy fingers stroking

rubbing urgently between their legs.

Could you ever imagine your strict Teacher

ever permitting such disgraceful behaviour

as discipline is being served?

Naughty girls should watch spankings

silently and respectfully

sitting up straight, or standing to attention.


Naughty girls should watch spankings

with their skirts lifted, or removed entirely,

folded neatly on the classroom desk.

Naughty girls should watch spankings

with their panties down and bottoms bared,

as if waiting their own turn next.

Naughty girls should watch spankings

with their own bare slits on display, their shameful arousal

clearly glistening between their thighs.

Naughty girls should watch spankings

thinking of her own disciplinarian

and the sore bottom she is due.

Naughty girls should listen to spankings

nose in the corner, arms folded behind her back

anticipating and imagining every smack.

Naughty girls who watch spankings

and masturbate

are very naughty girls indeed.

See me

After class.

I see my FWB on Tuesday to get my birthday spanking… I was wondering if you would give me instructions to give to him for an additional birthday gift from you. (I’m turning 23 by the way).

Send him your favourite spanking story.

Tell him to put you over his knee, and then read you the story out loud.

Tell him to rehearse what he’s going to do. So he knows how the story develops, what voices to use for its characters and how to conjure its drama. And, most importantly, so he’ll know the moments in the story when he’ll spank your bare bottom.

Perhaps you’ll choose a story that gives him the opportunity to stroke languidly between your legs as he slowly reads out each evocative sentence. Or maybe the story might demand he spreads your cheeks wide to conduct a very thorough inspection.

Tell him his imagination is his gift, that his performance will be a unique birthday present. That the wetter he makes you, the more eager you’ll be to properly thank him.

Happy birthday, dear reader.

The Beginner’s Guide to Self-Spanking


This is a repost, the original post fell victim to Tumblr’s filters.

Self-spanking is a lot like masturbation. In private, many enjoy doing it. But you’ll rarely hear many people talking about it.

I’m often asked for advice on self-spanking
by readers who are intrigued by the experience, yet who feel awkward
spanking themselves. This is, I believe, because spanking is more than
just smacks on the bottom, it’s as much a mental experience as a
physical one. Engaging your imagination is the key to a satisfying
spanking, whether you’re alone or with a partner. So in this guide, I
hope to address the practicalities of self-spanking, and provide some
ideas for creating fulfilling and arousing playtimes.

First, let’s consider a question, asked by many, especially those yet to try it.

Why would anyone want to spank themselves?

My answer is that fundamentally, self-spanking is just another form of play.

about it this way: vibrators stimulate nerves in the pussy, and
spankings stimulate nerves in the bottom. Whilst the sensations might be
different, impacts rather than rubbings and vibrations, they are
transmitted by exactly the same nerves: the Pudendal and the Perineal
nerves. When your brain receives signals from these nerves, it
interprets them as coming from the whole genital area. As a result, a
side-effect of spankings is the erotic sensation in the genitals, even
though those areas are not actually being touched.

The Pudendal
and the Perineal nerves are located in the lower parts of the buttocks,
near the anus and just above the tops of the thighs. That’s why this
‘sit-spot’ area is the favoured area for spanking, it’s where smacks are
felt most intensely and pleasurably.

Spankings can also, of
course, be painful; that’s why they’ve historically been a form of
punishment. Pain is your body’s early warning signal, alerting you to
the fact that your body is at risk of damage and injury. So normally,
our response to these sensations is aversion, to move away from what’s
causing the damage. Adrenaline surges through us, our heart races, our
minds concentrate. But if you’re over someone’s knee being spanked,
running away is no longer an option; you must instead grimace and bear

When pain is unavoidable, our brains start to release natural
opiates called endorphins, which not only dull the pain signals
received, so they do not become overwhelming, but also produce a floaty
euphoric feeling. Our bodies have a limited stockpile of endorphins,
once they’re released it takes a while to replenish. Which is one of the
reasons why those with spanked bottoms are often sent to the corner: so
they get to feel the soreness and stinging they’ve received when the
fug of their endorphins wear off.

It is this combination of
arousing tingles in the genitals, adrenaline rushes and natural highs
that, when performed right, can make spankings so pleasurable. So if you
enjoy the sensation of a smacked bottom, there’s nothing wrong with
delivering that feeling to yourself.

Hence I consider
self-spanking a form of masturbation. I regard it as a form of self-love
rather than self-harm, a form of self-pleasuring rather than
self-mortification. Spanking is a complementary physical sensation to
the joys of genital rubbing, and as those who’ve experienced a spanking
already know, well-smacked bottoms tend to lead to the most intense

As a result, for many who enjoy spanking stories,
self-spanking is just a natural extension of how they masturbate, giving
them the chance to experience for themselves some of the physical
sensations they’ve just been reading about. After all, what else could
make story about submission any more erotic, than physically submitting
yourself to the story?

Yet it would be wrong to consider
self-spankings as an activity of last resort, an ersatz experience when
no spanker is nearby. On the contrary, it provides a way for readers to
play in the privacy of their own homes, to indulge their own fantasies,
without weirding out a partner or revealing what they’d rather keep to
themselves. It’s the same reason why many with regular sexual partners
still like to play with themselves.

Having explained why
self-spanking is popular, you might be getting curious, tempted to try
the experience for yourself. So the next section will explain some of
the basic practicalities for the benefit of beginners.

How to Get Started

yourself a spanking is as simple as reaching back and slapping your own
bottom. But there’s a few practical aspects worth considering that will
make the experience more intense, and enjoyable.  

The first is
choosing what you’ll spank yourself with, whilst you can use the palm of
your hand, you’ll achieve a far better sensation with a proper spanking
implement. This is because of science! Specifically, the mechanics of
levers – a spanking implement will multiply the force you apply to
yourself, giving a harder whack for the same effort. Using an implement
also means you’ll experience a single impact sensation, having your palm
sting at the same time as your bottom tends to break the spell of what
you’re imagining.

Good items to use for spanking can be found all
around the house. Try slippers, flip-flops, wooden rulers, hairbrushes,
wooden spoons, spatulas, and bath-brushes. Then if, once you get into
it, you want to get more serious about bottom smacking, you can add a
proper spanking paddle to your basket the next time you go sex toy

If you’re not an experienced spankee you’ll quickly
discover some implements are more painful than others. Generally
speaking, the harder and heavier the material, the less forgiving it
will be. So sturdy hairbrushes will hurt more than light balsa wood
spatulas. Implements that flex, like flip-flops and slippers will be
more forgiving than rigid items like rulers and brushes.

The next
issue to consider is what position to adopt whilst spanking yourself.
For this, choose whatever you find most comfortable, or best fits the
fantasy you’re imagining. You might want to bend over a pile of pillows,
or the edge of a sofa, or straddle the corner of your bed.

positions you might try are leaning against a wall, over the back of a
chair or a banister, of kneeling on cushions with your bum in the air.
The possibilities are too numerous to list, just choose one that
supports your own weight comfortably, and leaves your strongest arm free
to reach around to apply your chosen implement to your bottom.

position you choose will dictate the angle that you’ll spank yourself
from, usually reaching back and around. For a different sensation you
can try lying on your back and lifting your legs, allowing you to spank
in between them, this position is particularly good for smacking your
sit-spots, and enjoying the ‘shame’ of exposing yourself.

duration of your spanking is also up to you to decide, it will depend on
the implement you use and your own tolerance of pain. The key here is
to start small, and build up until you find the degree of soreness you
find most satisfying.

If you’re new to self-spanking, you might
like to choose a softer implement like a slipper, and give yourself a
single smack on each cheek, then pause and feel the warmth on your
bottom. Then spank again, maybe adding a couple more smacks before your
next pause. Perhaps when your bottom starts getting sore, you can take
break, imagine you’ve been sent to the corner, and stand facing the
wall, feeling cool air wafting over your hot cheeks. Then maybe your
imaginary disciplinarian decides your spanking wasn’t sufficient, and
your brattiness earns you a trip across their knee for seconds.

you’re comfortable with the sensation of being spanked, try timing
yourself, so you can measure the duration of your spanking in minutes.

last consideration is privacy. Unlike masturbation, which you can do
virtually silently in your own bedroom, the noise of a spanking is
unavoidable. This shouldn’t be a problem if you live alone or with a
kinky partner, but otherwise you’ll be limiting your self-spankings to
times when you’re alone in your home.

So, that’s the physical
practicalities of self-spanking, now let’s consider the mental side, and
in particular, how do you make it erotic?

The Importance of Turning Yourself On

Here I’m going to introduce three ways how you might eroticise a self-spanking session.

The first is what I’d call Spank-As-You-Read, and is described in Naughty Game #6 – Naughty Reading.
This involves reading a spanking story, and imagining yourself as
somehow inside it, so when you read about spankings, you get to
experience them vicariously. The benefit here is the story is scripted
for you, it’s like a roller-coaster, you just buckle in and enjoy the

Perhaps you already masturbate when you read spanking
stories. Imagine if, instead of riding to orgasm, you put your fingers
of your weaker hand between your legs, and used your stronger hand to
rub your bottom with a slipper. Then, the rubs would soon turn into
spanks, and you’d begin to grind against your fingers. You’d smack
slowly, savouring the sound of the slap, the lingering sting.

you’ll be immersed in the story, your imagination engaged, can you
imagine you’re in it? Perhaps you’ll act out what you’re reading, speak
the dialogue aloud. A climax will be inevitable, but this one will be
different, you’ll end the tale with a delightfully warm bottom of your
own, and a head full of delicious thoughts.

second way to act out a fantasy of your own. This gives you the freedom
to improvise, and indulge the kind of activities that turn you on. There
is an art to getting into the right mindset for make-believe though, if
you find this difficult, you might want to warm yourself up with some
suitable erotica first, either visual or the written word.

you’ll imagine a favourite scenario, like reporting to the headmaster,
or being sent to bed early by Daddy. Or even to re-enact a spanking
picture of video you really enjoy. You might want to dress up for the
occasion, invent a bit of a back story, apologise or plead aloud when
it’s made clear your bare bottom is due for a whacking. Perhaps there
will be cornertime, writing of lines or a confession no one will ever
read. Just engage your imagination and invent a scene you’ve always
wanted to come true.

Naughty Games Galore


Since last Monday (9/10) I’ve been incredibly horny, like more so than I’ve been in a while. 

Of course I come (hehe) to Tumblr order to find some inspiration to help me with my drippy situation. A couple months ago I discovered the amazing blog @spankingtheatre and the amazing Naughty Games that the blog has. I finally tried a few new ones out in the past few days and I was definitely not disappointed in the least. 

On Wednesday I started out with the game Secret Reading and added some spanking with my hairbrush to add to the pleasure. Iwas a total mess by the end of the story, but before allowing myself to properly pleasure myself i also decided to play the Sensations as I am a definitely a fan of edging, as well as denial and so I set apart some time and got going. The most surprising body parts that I enjoyed were my forearms and my toes. They both made me squirm delightfully, I honestly felt like I could’ve possibly came from the sensations those two areas sent through my body, but that’s an experiment for another time perhaps. 

As if those two games weren’t enough for one night I also attempted to make my own Panty Pulling Chair, but as I did not have the proper equipment to make one, I was left disappointed at the lack of a pink stripe, as I had too much slack on my extension cord I was using.

So on Thursday night I bought some twine while I was at the grocery store, and despite it being such an innocuous purchase I felt a thrill knowing that I was going to be using it for something so kinky. 

When I got home I got to work on making my chair and oh my I was certainly not disappointed by the effects of it. I decided to reread the story that started it all, The Sit Down Dance. I found my self itching to get started and took the first pillow off within five minutes of starting, even before the girls in the story get their punishment. I don’t remember when I took the second and third ones out, only remembering that I was eager to feel my panties pulling between my slit. I took out the last one about halfway through Part 2 and unlike the girls in the story, I began to squirm attempting to get in a position that allowed the most kind of stretch I was looking for. i

After a quick bottom inspection in the mirror to see my beautiful pink stripe I needed some sort of release, as I did not touch myself at all while on the chair. 

I decided to try out yet another one of SpankingTheatre’s wonderfully crafted games and made myself a Throne of Shame with my newly purchased (earlier that day) suction cup dildo. 

Despite how wet I was it was a bit painful to sit on, but I brought a vibrator to my clit and began edging myself over and over. I would take the vibe off as soon as I got close to the edge and would count to fifty before putting it back. My goal was to make it to 25 edges but with all the counting I had to do I lost track somewhere around 10. I was on my throne for at least an hour if not more. I honestly don’t know what number I stopped at, but I stopped after I waited a few seconds too long and felt myself tumbling over the edge and ruined my orgasm. After I got off my throne, I immediately wanted my cunt to be filled right up with something and so I put a plug in there so I wouldn’t feel so empty.  

I went to bed sopping wet and woke up in the same condition. and possibly even more horny than I was the night before.

Since Thursday I have been wearing a homemade crotch rope from the twine on and off throughout the day, as well as plugging my pussy, just so I can feel full, while also feeling a bit of thrill from going out in public and hoping that maybe just maybe someone somehow knows what a filthy girl I am. Last night I made my throne again, but was only able to get two edges in before I had to ruin another orgasm. 

I really must work on holding them back, but in my denied state I don’t know if that is possible anymore. 

As I type this out I am once again sitting on my throne, occasionally sliding up and down and really really enjoying the fullness of my cunt. I’m going to edge myself once before leaving to go to the movies with my friends while wearing my crotch rope and having a plugged pussy so I can come back and resume my seat on my throne. 

Overall I just have to say a huge thank you to the man behind SpankingTheatre for my naughty adventures this week, and probably a lot more in the future!

Many thanks to @foryourpleasureee for writing up her experiences. I hope she’ll be sitting on her panty-pulling chair reading this, seeing the likes accumulate, the nods of all other readers who she’s aroused and inspired.

And for those who haven’t encountered the series of naughty games I’ve posted over recent years, here’s the complete list:

So, if newcomers are stumbling upon these challenges for the first time through this post, I wish you all some very enjoyable playtimes. And many exciting, inventive and arousing games of self-discovery…
