Spanking Theatre

Spanking stories for the theatre between your ears



I just wanted to thank you. I’ve been reading your stories for a while, but I finally tried out one of your games and it was… everything I’d hoped and more. I spent all day anticipating getting to play another!

I’m delighted to hear it!

The naughty games are a wonderful opportunity to make your favourite fantasies more interactive. Ideas for making your playtime more than just physical stimulation.

Likewise the self-spanking challenges provide a thrilling way to make your spanking fantasies more tangible.

And once you’ve got a taste for one, you might find yourself hungry to try them all…

Do you prefer Good girls or naughty girls?

I much prefer playing with those who want to be good girls.

Bad girls are greedy for attention, they tend to be continually pushing boundaries, testing the rules, seeing what they can get away with.

Good girls are obedient, they appreciate the need for rules and discipline, and know that good behaviour is mutually satisfying for both themselves and their disciplinarian.

Being good opens up a world of new possibilities, of thrilling rewards rather than just an endless cycle of misbehaviour and punishment. Without a change in behaviour, spankings are just smacked bottoms.

What separates discipline from punishment is that it involves submission to a just and desirable set of rules. If the recipient has no interest in accepting the boundaries and improving their behaviour, spanking simply becomes the act of inflicting pain – and that’s never been my priority.

Achieving the trust of smart, independent, self-confident women is what truly satisfies me. This kind of obedience is consensual, because those involved want me to act as the screenwriter for their erotic imaginations. Broken rules may still result in spanked bottoms, but if they’re good, I’ve promised to make their fantasies come true.

Hello Mr. Spankingtheatre, thank you for so often taking the time to answer people’s asks and doing all this outreach and education. I was wondering if you have any advice about bruise aftercare? My partner and I haven’t done a lot of impact play yet and we kiiiiind of overdid it today & I’m really rather bruised up. Normally when I run into things & bruise I barely notice, but this kind of hurts, so I was wondering if there’s anything it’d be useful to do to help the healing process? Thank you!

I’m not the best spanker to ask about this particular outcome, as I always try to avoid bruises.

But I can point you towards to the sensible advice of health professionals, and compression with ice seems to be the standard advice for painful bruising. It’s a bit more complicated with the risk of infection if the skin is broken, which is all the more reason to try to avoid that when spanking.

Next time, try incorporating more corner time and bottom inspections into your play, and your partner should be able to stop safely well before you get hurt, without making it any less enjoyable or erotic.

Honestly I’ve been into spanking for the longest time and even though I’m about to turn 20 and I’m still a virgin I just know it’s a dealbreaker for me if they can’t provide that. Is that weird?

Not weird at all.

Many who adore spanking couldn’t imagine getting together with someone if spanking wasn’t on the erotic menu.

When you’re kinky, you realise that no one sexual activity has primacy above all others. Kinky folk understand everyone has their preferences, and we give ourselves the permission to prioritise what we value the most.

That doesn’t mean kinky folk don’t enjoy intercourse, but we have a clear difference in outlook between vanilla folk who see intercourse as the peak of sexual experience, and consider activities like spanking as just ‘foreplay’ or sideshows to the ‘main event’.

Be true to your own sexual compass. It’s yours alone.

Is it safe to use a belt to administer a spanking between the legs?

I wrote a post on this subject a while back:

It should be safe if caution and a smooth belt without studs or buckles is used. Ensure the smacks are delivered slowly and the spanker doesn’t use too much force. The best way to achieve this is for the recipient to always be in control, and able to dictate the pace and the force of the impact.

“Please Sir, I deserve another.”

And don’t aim for the tenderest regions right away, the mound is a good target to smack initially.

Done right, it can be extremely erotic, just don’t spoil the moment by escalating too quickly.

Do you have suggestions for how to spank in public; or any other form of punishment that can be done in public? My partner wants to be able to punish me in public but doesn’t know how to go about it. Thank you.

Out of courtesy to others, spankings outside your home should be as discreet as possible.

Go into the countryside or back-country, where there’s literally no-one around. If you camp somewhere remote, you’ll be able to make as much noise as you like.

If you have a garden you could conduct an outdoor spanking if you take precautions. Use a quieter, whippy spanking rod. And if there’s a risk of being overlooked by neighbours, set up a sunshade or awning over yourselves.

Spankings in urban environments are trickier, and riskier, as the kind of places where you won’t be seen are attractive to the kind of people who don’t want to be seen.

But there are many other punishments that can be delivered more subtly:

  • Tell your partner just before going out that they’ll have a thick butt plug stretching their bottom. Have them bend over in the hallway, just inside the front door as you push it inside. Then pull their clothing up just before you leave your home.
  • For extra heat, send them out with a ginger root in their bottom, or a plug that’s been coated in ginger oil or something similar.
  • Confiscate their underwear. This can be done at any time, send them to a public bathroom to take it off and return it to you.
  • Pull up their underwear tight, so they’re in Punishment Panties, which can be used like reins to tug on should they require a reminder to behave whilst you’re out.
  • Alternatively, an improvised chastity belt can be worn beneath their clothes.
  • If they have a school uniform, have them wear it outside.
  • If you stop in a coffee shop, have them write a page of lines, like “I deserve a good hard spanking on my bare bottom“.
  • Send them to a public toilet cubicle, then conduct an intimate inspection via an instant messaging app.
  • Your inspection might include a slit or bottom wiping, which the tissue used brought back for your perusal.
  • Or send them to the toilet with a zip-lock plastic bag, and have them wet their panties. Afterwards, they can place their sodden underwear in the bag and carry it home with them.

The keys to effective public punishment are anticipation and subtlety. Remind your partner what’s going to happen, tease them, have them imagine it in their own head a dozen times whilst in public before it actually happens.

And make sure you whisper regularly into your partner’s ear:

“Just wait until I get you home…”

My sweet, vanilla boyfriend has FINALLY agreed to spank me for being the little slut I am, but he’s worried about our roommates hearing. is there anything he can spank me with tha’ll be quieter than a hand?

As explained in this post, about the Physics of Spanking, if you want to be quiet but stingy you’ll want to choose an item with a thin cross section. The sound of a smack is proportional to the impact surface area, so paddles and hairbrushes tend to be the noisiest.

So the best items for quieter spankings are thin rods (especially those anchored at one end), such as canes, switches or spanking crops. A thin wooden ruler or a paint-stirrer would be slightly noisier, but still much quieter than an open palm.

Make experimenting part of the game. Download a decibel meter to your phone and start collecting data, you might find the loudest noises aren’t actually the spanks, but the moans they inspire…

I have been coming here since early 2013. I no longer have a tumblr account but I still frequent your page for both new and old content. Your stories have heavily influenced many of my fantasies and I imagine also the trajectory of my sex life as it exists now. So I’d like to thank you; for being a close friend for many years and for always being able to bring me to my knees, dripping, or over someone else’s. Sincerely, obediently, desperately yours, T x

How lovely to hear from you! It pleases me enormously that these stories have brought you such satisfaction and personal growth.

I wonder how many readers stumbled across this blog in its early days, many still feeling uncomfortably weird about how spanking made them feel?

I wonder how that feeling was changed by reading stories like Cosmopolitan, Throne of Shame, Abstract Art and Carrot and Stick?

I wonder how the written word aided your explorations and acceptance of your shadow selves?

To such early readers: I’d love to hear of your adventures since. How these stories influenced the trajectories of your own sexual experiences.

If you don’t have an active Tumblr account any longer, do feel free to drop me an email, or say hello via Twitter.

And I wish you all many more years of deep, fulfilling satisfaction.

I am kinky and enjoy spanking my partners, male or female. My current boyfriend expressed an interest in exploring spanking and we have started to play. He has discovered strong masochist tendencies. However, there is one issue: I am unsure about how to make sure he is safe/how to gauge how much he has taken. His skin is extremely dark and does not bruise. It also does not turn red easily. However, obviously he will be feeling the pain of the spanking. I was wondering if you had any advice.

There is a hazard here, as true masochists can zone out from pain. And pain can have a euphoric effect, it’s like a drug, and so your partner might not be lucid enough to reply to traditional questions like ‘Have you had enough?’ or to use their safewords.

So I’d spank and then pause. Then resume, and then pause again.

Leave gaps, which will allow your partner to enjoy the high of the pain you’ve inflicted, and then come down again. Be aware of how lucid they are. If they seem too high – wait until you resume the spanking.

Make use of these gaps. They’re far more than dead air.

Send your partner to the corner, perform an inspection, have them sit on their sore bottom and write about what they’re feeling. Have them masturbate, then stop. Fig them. Have them lick you out.

This is just good practice. Someone who’s inebriated can not give their consent, and it’s up to the Top to decide if the Bottom is no longer aware enough to genuinely participate. As long as your partner is talking, both of you can play safely.

One other tip is to look for liquid seeping from spanked skin – this indicates you’re damaging the dermis – the flesh that lies under the surface of the skin. Dab the spanked area with a tissue when you pause, and consider stopping if the skin is weeping or bleeding. If that happens, continuing to spank is just going to inflict physical damage on your partner.

I believe the best spankings, the most skilful spankings, are the ones that satisfy without ever breaking the recipient’s skin.
