The Spanking Resources Guide is a link list to Net sites and a specialized bibliography. It includes a variety of references to Internet web sites, newsgroups, mail lists, BBSes, e-mail connections, FTP sites, and IRC Chat groups. It provides extensive references to print literature (i.e., books, newspapers, zines, e-zines, magazines, newsletters, articles), and print publishers. It includes references to noted fiction and nonfiction authors, photographic and graphic artists, clubs and organizations, and other sources of information about the subject of erotic spanking, flagellation, corporal punishment, whipping, caning, and sadomasochistic discipline. This Spanking Resources Guide deals with one erotic play technique of consenting adults.

The Spanking Resources Guide is the most popular publication at the Kinky Flavors website.

If and when The KINKY FLAVORS WEBSITE closes, CARTER STEVENS PRESENTS with permission of KINKY FLAVORS will absorb and continue to to update the BDSM LINKS LIST and THE FETISH LINKS LIST, as well as the Spanking Resources Guide, major portions of which follow:

Spanking is a subject of serious and sensual concern in the Internet bdsm community, of serious interest amongst non-erotic CP advocates, and, of course, of interest to curious persons browsing the Net. "Taking a Walk on the Wild Side" is safe and easy on the Net. Welcome to all Readers.

Mistress Blanca and Peter are also the authors of the BDSM Links List(now on line at this S&M NEWS web site) which has some related links on flagellation.

The Kinky Flavors Resources Guides Series feature lots of current links to unique and specialized subject areas, references to good information outside the Net, a good subject arrangement, no graphics, and comments on the sites visited. The series is now being supported on the Internet by Carter Stevens Presents and THE S & M NEWS.

If you would like your spanking site or spanking publication listed in the Spanking Resources Guide, or wish to share information with the authors, then please write to Carter Stevens Presents at Carter Stevens. We welcome comments, suggestions, ideas, and constructive criticism. Please inform us if you think we have misclassified any links, find a dead link, missed a good link, or if you want a link removed from one of our publications. Thanks for your interest and support.

Many persons have sent information, review materials, links, and citations for this publication. We thank them! A special thanks to: khashka, David S., Rob Hill, Clare Gordon, slave w, and KDMtoo. And most important Mistress Blanca and Peter who made the original list we are now supporting.

We support the Blue Ribbon Campaign for Online Freedom of Speech, Press, and Association.

What sort of questions might this Spanking Bookmark answer? How and why do creative and energetic adults come to enjoy spanking and flagellation? What books, magazines and videos are available for spanking devotees? Where can you select and purchase a Cat of Nine tails, bamboo cane, or a heavy leather split slapper? What magazines or web pages provide information and ideas for women that regularly flagellate their masochistic male lovers and/or husbands? What are the historical perspectives on this subject? Where is the hot spanking fiction on the Net? Where can I find descriptions of real and imagined severe S/M action with whipping? Is there a bibliography on sensuous spanking, hard CP, or the religious aspects of mysticism via punishment of the body?

Larger social-cultural-political issues such as the discipline and punishment of children, juveniles, spouses, family members, criminals, prisoners of war, kidnapped and tortured victims of racial-ethnic-nationalistic civilian wars, the spanking of children by members of cultural or religious groups, classroom discipline and punishment, judicial corporal punishment, etc.,
are NOT covered in this Spanking Resources Guide to any significant extent. We do point to a few resources on the Net and elsewhere on these subjects.

We are primarily interested in the kinky sadomasochistic activities of consenting adults (F/M, M/M, M/F, and F/F) engaged in spanking/flagellation and related BDSM activities as
an erotic lark or life-style.

Includes some very hot caning fiction and poetry, e.g., Harriett Marwood, Governess, in the large appendices of the book. The book makes extensive efforts to distinguish between consensual SM and violent criminal sadism.

Canes - Notes

The Rosa banksiae Alba Plena climbing rose makes excellent canes. No thorns, flexible, many diameters, tough, and many canes from established rootstock.

We have used cuttings from apricots, pomegranate, and peach trees to make some excellent switches-canes. The leaf nodules can really gouge so whittle or sand them down a bit before using to whip, or throw caution to the wind and nurse your bruises afterwards.

A short article on making rattan canes is available from SHS.

Instructional - Notes

Be reasonable, be safe, be willing to learn as you explore the realms of erotic spanking and flagellation with your consenting adult partner. Don't hit others when you are angry, upset, disappointed, judgmental, sad, or tired. When both adults are refreshed, healthy, happy, playful, and ready to give and take and share erotic pleasure, then is the time to open the toy chest with the implements we masochists so treasure.

Safe whipping involves a number of factors: 1) the type of implement used, 2) the force of the strike and the number of strikes, 3) the technique of striking, 4) the location of the strike on the body of the spankee, 5) the musculature, pain tolerance, masochistic swoon level, and will of the spankee, 6) the adherence to safe-sane-consent BDSM rules, and 6) the musculature, experience and will of the spanker.

Generally, for safety, areas of the body with deeper layers of muscle and fat and flesh are the favored locations for the strike: buttocks, sides of upper thighs, muscular back-shoulder, etc.. Avoid any hard strikes on areas near any joints, over vital organs, and on areas were the flesh is inadequate to protect blood vessels, nerves, tendons, e.g., on the lower back over the kidneys, behind the knees, stomach, head, genitals, the female breasts, etc..

Each instrument has an area of acceptable safe use depending on the force of the strike, for examples: a heavy wooden paddle is realistically for use on the big-ass only, a small multi-tassled leather flogger might be OK for the genitals if used with light to mild force, a flexible crop could be applied to a variety of areas on the body if it is more lightly applied, a leather strap might be OK for the upper back of a strong person if the striking force is moderate, a hand can be used with various levels of force on the bare butt, or a true cane might best be left for use on the ass and upper outer thighs. Some of the most popular erotic spanking implements include: bare hand, light paddle, hairbrush, belt, and cane.

Spankers need to know their tools, practice their aim, be aware of the spankee's ability to take a whipping, control their application of force, understand the scenario action and script requirements, and know where not to strike. Spanking sounds like hard work, a variant of erotic massage? Yes. That is another reason why a good Top can attract and command a diligent and reliable submissive.

For more instructions on safe whipping techniques read the informative document "An Introduction to Flogging." A very informative article on safe whipping techniques is "Body Beating Basics" by Tony DeBlase. Found in Dungeon Master (Issue 47, 1994, pp. 7-19, photos).

Top and bottom players in a spanking session need to discuss desires and preferences before they begin the scene. At what level of experience are the players? Start fast or start slowly? What kind of time do the players have? What are the Top's needs and comfort zone? Does the submissive want verbal exchanges that support some type of punishment, bad adult-child, misbehavior correction, CP or discipline scenario? What kind of instruments are preferred, what kind are very undesirable? Where does the masochist want to be whipped? How hard of a strike? What bodily position of the submissive is desired? Does the bottom want marks? How long should the marks last? How many strikes? Counting out strokes while being whipped? What safe word indiciates that immediate stopping is needed, what word indicates a green light for more spanking action? Does the bottom want to be bound while being whipped? As with any kind of sexual behavior, the partners need to communicate their needs, negotiate, and plan ahead. Once the spanking formalities and etiquette are agreeably arranged, the enthusiastic participants can enjoy themselves.

So, take a deep breath, step up to and grasp the post, squat a little, thrust your butt out, wait, and deeply enjoy your lover's administration of these stunning delights: THWacK! THWacK! THWacK!!! THWacK! THWacK! ThwackkK!!! .....
"Keep your posture correct, slave." ..... She gently kissed me on the cheek. Then She stepped back, raised up the thick double leather strap, held Her arm high, and ..... THWacK!!! THWacK!!! THWacK!..... ThwackkK!!! ....... "Yes, Mistress, Thank You Mistress!"

The free and commercial distribution of factual information about BDSM - a form of safe, sane, consensual, fun, adult, and very creative sexuality - is very important so as to enable everyone to expand, enhance, and increase their erotic pleasures. In addition, it helps to enlighten non-participants so as to liberate closeted or publicly active BDSM players from harassment and unreasonable discrimination, unfair and useless legal sanctions, and public misunderstanding.
