Therapeutic Spanking: One Person’s View

On September 1, 2016, Dr. Discipline posted a thought-provoking piece entitled A guide to giving Therapeutic Spankings for couples on his blog Luvs Spanking. We post the opening paragraphs and urge you to link here to read the entire article.

I wrote the comment below on my post ‘For couples seeking spanking’ on 10/29/2009 in response to a question from a reader as to why I wrote that punishment and discipline were different.

“Punishment is for specific events and is meant to hurt both physically and mentally. Punishment is a price paid for making an error in judgment despite and in spite of knowing the consequences for misbehaving. Punishment is not the result of bratting however [unless specified in a contract]. Discipline is best recognized in the sense of achievement. As in ‘she was disciplined enough to run a marathon’, ‘meditating took self-discipline’, ‘not eating all the muffins was a sign of a disciplined mind’. Discipline is an incentive, a reward, a motivation to do better in very detailed goals. They can be goals based on relationships, personal or spiritual growth, professional career, the list is endless. The key is how those involved feel. If you feel punished, then you were punished. If you feel disciplined, then you were disciplined. It’s all in the perspective: bottoms up or hands down.”

One category of spankings I didn’t include though was therapeutic spankings. Some may argue that therapy spankings fall under discipline or maintenance but for the purposes of this post I will consider them to be separate. …

One way or another you will take charge of yourself

Georgia Cane is from New York and is a no-nonsense Disciplinarian who is strict yet undeniably fair. She expects folks to honor their commitments to themselves, to her, and/or to whoever else they encounter, or consequences ensue.

In 2017, Miss Cane posted an article on her blog Georgia Cane Spanking Disciplinarian relating to taking charge. We feel that Miss Cane’s words are on-point to what many seek, and we proudly post them here with her permission.

Spanking Discipline Is Taking Charge
by: Georgia Cane (NYC)

For a while, I felt strongly I’d said all about spanking I needed to say. I was wrong. Whether it is role play, age regression or addressing issues which are disrupting or hindering your life, seeking Spanking Discipline is about one thing and one thing only; taking charge. By that I mean YOU are taking charge of your life.

Just as doctors don’t heal themselves, we can’t be objective enough to see ourselves clearly; and when it comes to corporal punishment or strict behavioral correction, trust me that, no matter how determined you may be, you will not go much beyond the comfort zone. Even in role play of any kind, you must be seen through the eyes of an authority who appreciates and fully participates in the experience. A disciplinarian must key into both what’s said and, more importantly, what’s unsaid.

Focus and respect are key to ending self-destructive patterns of behavior – from procrastination to abuse – or for some, to clearly revisit the crux of a profound, life-directing event either left unaddressed or which held you in good stead.

In essence, spanking discipline is self-discipline. One must cede control to a mature and savvy authority but one who will not suffer foolishness nor excuse wrong behavior but instead holds you accountable and makes you feel the consequences of wrongdoing.

That way the penalty is paid, your conscience is clear. You’re left with a renewed energy, a cleared head, a clean slate, and a nicely burning bottom. And that’s what it means to take charge.

The Paddle: Its Origin

Back in 2012, Slate Magazine published an online article by Forrest Wickman in BrowBeat entitled Paddling: A History. The article explores how the use of the paddle evolved over the years. It is an interesting read for any spanking aficionado especially those who relish applying the paddle or feeling its awesome sting.

I encourage you to read it.
