Choosing the right spanking instrument plays a crucial role in creating a fun spanking experience. Naturally, for beginners, the use of lighter, less intensive instruments is a good choice. In principle, adequate hygiene should be ensured. Especially with changing partners, the instruments should always be thoroughly cleaned after each application. Why are spanked instruments used at all? It's just a lot more fun with spanking-instruments. A paddle can be taken into one's hand, creates a memorable menacing setting and gives the practitioner additional psychological dominance and power. The spanking-instrument becomes a symbol of superiority and gives authority. It is not without reason that rhetoric seminars teach that a wooden stick in the hand gives the speaker much more authority and charisma than a speaker who is left hands-free without tools.
This is the fastest and most uncomplicated method of spanking and is therefore the absolute classic. The advantage of this method is that no auxiliary instruments are needed and therefore this act is possible at any time and anywhere. The flat hand is particularly suitable for warm-up, i. e. the slow warm-up at the beginning of the spanking session. The disadvantage is that the intensity of the pain is not particularly high and the repeated impact of the palm of the hand can lead to painful pulling for the active partner. You have to hit harder to achieve the same pain intensity as with a paddle. In addition, some people do not want to abuse the hand as a tender, loving part for spanking. This form of spanking can be more pain-intensive if it is applied to a buttocks that have already been tightened intensely a short time ago, as these areas are more sensitive due to the recent spankings.
The cooking spoon is an object that can be found in almost every household and is perfect for spanking. The classic is the wooden spoon, but also modern plastic spoons do not miss their effect. Depending on the impact intensity, spoons can also be used as a loose warm-up or for small spanking in between. The beating with the spoon is quite quiet. The pain remains rather superficial, which makes this type of spankings suitable for the thighs. However, the spoon also has weaknesses, as it is not specifically designed for spanking. It breaks easily and has only a small impact surface.
The punishment with the leather belt was widespread in history. The intensity can usually be well dosed and depending on the material thickness of the leather, considerable impact effects can be achieved. A disadvantage of the methodology is that the point of impact is harder to aim at, as it is a non-rigid object that swings freely. The force of the stroke is determined by the oscillation of the belt or belt end. The advantage is that it can be found in every household. However, it is sometimes difficult to control and the blows can be relatively loud. In addition, there may also be distinct marks on the skin surface.
The cane is one of the most popular and well-known breeding instruments. It can be used very variably in terms of pain intensity and residual traces. The cane is very common in Great Britain, where it is still used in private schools. The cane is made of rattan with a thickness of about 0.5 to 1 cm. A distinction can be made between peeled and unpeeled canes. The unpeeled canes are slightly milder in their sense of pain, whereas the peeled canes can produce a very intense sensation of pain. Peeled canes have a lighter colour and can thus be visually distinguished from unpeeled canes. There are numerous subspecies of cane. Some of the poles have a U-shaped end at the end, which makes them look like a walking stick. In addition, a wide range of different rod lengths and tube hardnesses can be found, enabling a wide variety of applications. Depending on the intensity of the stroke, the pain can range from light pulling to severe pain. During intensive use, there are distinct strains and in some cases haematomas on the buttocks, which can lead to pain when sitting in the following days.
Crops were originally used in equestrian sports and only later on in eroticism were used for other purposes. Riding poles usually consist of a flexible fibreglass core, which is covered with a mesh of plastic. Typically, riding sticks with a length of 60 - 80 cm are ideal for spanking. As with the reed stalks, there are a number of different variants for riding stalks. Some riding sticks have a small plastic swatter at the end of the stroke. Other models have a small free-swinging string instead of the clap, which increases the speed of impact - similar to the whip's striking principle. Due to the flexible structure of the crop, enormous impact speeds are achieved, causing intense painful effects. At the same time, the noise during application is comparatively low, which makes the instrument a discreet but effective disciplinary tool. The remaining stripes usually disappear after a short time. The crop, which additionally has a small clap at its end, does not leave any marks, as they hit more flat. However, considerable pain intensity can also be achieved here. All in all, the crop is very effective and flexible, which qualifies it as an ideal spanking-instrument.
Paddles made of wood or heavy leather are particularly popular in the USA. Basically, paddles are wooden boards with a thickness of 0.5 cm to 1.5 cm and a length of 30 - 40 cm. A handle is attached to one end, with which the paddle is swung. To increase the speed of impact of the paddle and thus the intensity of pain, small holes are made on the playing surface. These reduce air resistance and reduce the formation of a braking air cushion between paddle and skin immediately before impact. With paddles without holes, therefore, only lower impact effects can be achieved. The pain intensity depends on the size of the paddle, the weight and the material it is made of. In addition, the state of the cladding is naturally also influenced by the state of the cladding. Small paddles are particularly suitable for beginners, as the intensity is average to high. With large paddles, on the other hand, very large pain effects can be achieved, but a little practice with the safe handling of the paddle is recommended in advance. Wooden paddles produce a relatively loud gossiping noise. Increasingly, leather paddles especially for the SM sector are also available on the market. However, their effect differs from traditional wooden paddles. The pain intensity that can be achieved is significantly lower due to the flexible structure and the often thin leather materials.

Paddles can be used in a variety of different spanking positions and are suitable for beginners as well as experienced users.
There is a very large variety of different whip shapes. The whip has been used since ancient times as an instrument of torture or punishment. But it also has more humane applications. It is also used for making noises, as a means of communication for dressage and as a children's toy for so-called whip tops. The physics on which the whip is based is remarkable: The end of the whip can reach supersonic speed shortly before impact, causing the characteristic bang. The reason for the high speed is that the kinetic energy of the whip remains constant during the stroke movement according to the laws of physics (and apart from friction effects). The whip sections, however, gradually come to rest during the stroke movement, starting from the grip. In this way, the moving parts are accelerated. Shortly before the end of the stroke, the entire initial kinetic energy is in a very small part of the whip - the speed is correspondingly high and goes (theoretically) towards infinity. Different types of whips are known. Originally widespread in seafaring, the "nine-tailed cat" has also found its way into the modern SM scene. It is a belt whip consisting of nine braided ropes. The so-called scourge also has small knots or barbs at the ends of the belt, which can cause severe injuries. The tools of cowboys include bull whip and snake whip. This is a long, single-tailed whip. In many Islamic countries the whip is used as an instrument of punishment. Prominent examples are the Iranian Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and the Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, on which 50 lashes were carried out in 2015.
This instrument has its origin in Scotland. It is a leather strap made of thick leather. The length is about 40 - 50 cm. The leather strap is approximately divided into two parts from the middle. The application of the Tawse is relatively easy and safe, as the leather straps usually have a very smooth surface. The impact can be considerable. Thus a strong feeling of pain is also possible through the clothed buttocks. It can also be applied to the buttocks or thighs. The Tawse is an ideal, flexible percussion instrument for warm-up or extended punishments.
In addition to the presented playing instruments, a large number of other objects are also suitable for spanking, which can be found in many households and therefore enjoy great popularity: for example, rulers made of wood or plastic, table tennis bats or electric cables. There are no limits to your imagination.
