Comment[edit]

When in an article on erotic spanking four out of five illustrations are of women being spanked/dominated, and the only one of a man is a drawing, not a photo, one wonders to what extent this kind of pseudo-encyploaedic presentation is actually reiterating the idea that women should be dominated, and encouraging domestic violence.

Bring the number of subs in accordance with reality = reverse it: 4 men and 1 woman as a sub in spanking play.


Is this topic worthy of a seperate article, or is it adequately covered in BDSM? --Robert Merkel

LOL, only in wikipedia can we find authoritative articles on topics such as this. (Dan (talk) 01:12, 26 April 2008 (UTC))

spank[edit]

spanking is normal dudes... nothing weird about it, its not even a fetish. Dont believe me? Hit your girl on her butt when you are having sex and see for yourself. Afraid to do that? Rent a porn movie, chances are pretty big that someone is getting spanked in it. 82.92.111.48 16:36, 13 May 2006 (UTC)


There now is an article, see Erotic_spanking --145.254.75.239 23:54, 26 Jan 2004 (UTC)

This topic is worthy of a seperate article, since 'spankos' often do not find themselves practising a form of BDSM. This is at least an indication that BDSM and erotic spanking are more loosely related than is assumed.

Younger men who have a fetish for being spanked by older men[edit]

I was wondering what anyone thought about young people who want to get spanked normally by someone who also has a fetish to spank younger guys. Role-play is normally engaged in such encounters involving an authority figure like a headmaster, uncle, grandfather, priest. Does a guy that has a fetish for spanking or being spanked by another man have to be homosexuality?

Good question. I would say perhaps not.

Some people might get off on just being spanked by anyone or anything. If you fell into a mixing vat and got paddled and liked it. The pain is the point of arousal not the gender.

Some people might get off on just being able to control or be controlled. Not really about gender but on the acceptance or rejection of control. Childhood and innocence regained. Empowerment. Anything that would releave a hang up or provide an ego boost would be bound to stimulate sexual impulse.

I think another question you have to ask is how much the other person is involved in erotic spanking/ sm. Are you really having a sexual encounter with your self and your own ideals/ issues? Are there any feelings for the other person involved? Are you truly getting off on seeing, touching the anatomy? Or are you really just getting yourself off.

I dunno if there is an erotic element in fraternity hazing with a paddle or jocks swatting each others butts on the field and so on. Men showing affection, erotic or otherwise, with other men has always been tricky.

rofl, not a single person signed their comments on this page.

Over the shoulder spanking.[edit]

I was just going to ask,is it possible for the spanker to hoist his or her spankee over one shoulder,and then spank him or her with his/her free hand? if it's possible,chances are it's been done before. added to article.

which goes some way to explaining why large parts of this read as if they have been made up. it has been. have removed over shoulder comment as pure fiction. raining girl 18:28, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Spankable nurse[edit]

User:Mdwh removed a link I added here and called it spam. The link was to a free program, created with opensource software and was a perfect illustration for this article's topic. In what universe is that considered spam? see http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Erotic_spanking&diff=81637194&oldid=81636998

If the topic were interactive 3D spanking programs then it would be appropriate. The link doesn't inform readers in any significant way about the phenomenon of erotic spanking. -Will Beback 21:32, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Ok, I see where you're coming from and respect your opinion. On the other hand, the link does illustrate the article's topic really well and it isn't spam. I feel the link is an excellent addition.
Okay, it's not commercial spam, but I was using spam in the looser "advertising" sense which you posted to a couple of articles. I'm not sure what this link would add to the article (see Wikipedia:External links) - surely a 2D image (which we already have) is far more accessible and easier as an illustration than someone having to download a 3D model? Mdwh 21:50, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

this article is erotic fiction in itself[edit]

large parts of this article read as they have been made up - especially all the non-erotic play stuff - paddles hung on children's walls? C'mon. This is an encyclopaedia. If no-one objects I am going to prune this back severely. raining girl 18:30, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

I agree with you -- well said. Problems with items of fact, as well as word choices that say something very different than what the author probably intended, e.g., "spanking is a reflex, like sitting down or making dinner." [User:NicoSuave] 23 November 2006

I have edited out a great deal of that. It still needs alot more editing, and citations to make it a reference rather than opinion. Atom 12:47, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

I've removed the previous speedy deletion notice that was put up by a someone who was not an administrator. While the article might be considered for deletion, it should be done in accordance with proper Wiki policies. Zotdragon 20:34, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Errrm, you do not have to be an admin to nominate an article for speedy deletion. Only an admin can actually carry out the deletion, but anyone can request it. See WP:SPEEDY for more information.--NeoNerd 20:28, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Great site for info on erotic spanking[edit]

Master The Art Of Erotic Spanking

This website goes through some of the biological and psychological reasons for woman (or men) to become sexually stimulated from the act of spanking. Really this is an overall better overview of the fetish, in my opinion, than the wikipedia article. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.79.11.112 (talk) 02:54, 18 March 2007 (UTC).

Title[edit]

Shouldn't this article be titled "Erotic flagellation" or something similar?-Wafulz (talk) 17:36, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

I've moved the article. If you have any objections, feel free to voice them.-Wafulz (talk) 05:33, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Actually strike that, I'm second-guessing myself, so I'll give it some more time.-Wafulz (talk) 05:37, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Marginally relevant image[edit]

I removed Image:spank2.jpg which had the caption "Erotic spanking can sometimes go hand in hand with other paraphilia, such as for erotic clothes or erotic humiliation." An image of something which isn't actually erotic spanking but might be associated with it seems to me to add little to this article. Kenilworth Terrace (talk) 21:27, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

I don't see the need for a section on terminology -- that should be in Wiktionary. The explanation of some terms could conveniently be integrated into the article: the others probably don't belong. Kenilworth Terrace (talk) 17:36, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

If you could find a way to implement the remaining terms into the article effectively then I would be fine with removing the terminology section. If not I might add the term figging to terminology(since I don't know where else to put it).Wikiposter0123 (talk) 19:05, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Victorian novels[edit]

I find it impossible to verify "Wezzellian Behaviors" or "Yerbouti Ermine" as Victorian spanking literature. Kenilworth Terrace (talk) 16:46, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

is spanking considered legal?[edit]

I've been trying for the longest to find out some legal questions about adult spanking. mainly, is it leagal. If Hooters is legal, and ultimate fighting is legal, then why not spanking? Can I call it ultimate fighting and then have it be legal. If anyone knows the answer, please hit me up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sgeeray (talkcontribs) 03:27, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

yes it is most certainly legal. Unless you accidently kill or mutilate someone (not a common event), theres nothing even sort of illegal (So long that its consentual). By the way, you wasted a lot of time since of course, it isnt illegal at all. so everything you asked after the second sentence was a waste of time. Please don't ask questions with what you clearly think is the answer on talk pages. Its stupid for a lot of reasons. 74.132.249.206 (talk) 22:05, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Removal of notable people[edit]

Is there a policy or reason for the removal of this information? The comment said no need for British scandals, but this wasn't trying to portray them as being scandals, but notable people who practiced this.--AerobicFox (talk) 23:59, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

This is an article about erotic spanking in an international reference work. How does it help the reader gain a knowledge of erotic spanking to name-check a bunch of minor British celebrities who were caught up in scandals? What does the fact that Harvey Proctor (who most readers will not have heard of) liked to spank young boys? The material is simply not relevant here.--Scott Mac 00:57, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Tend to agree with Scott here; it's tabloid trivia. --JN466 05:33, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

The inclusion of a military hero, sports announcer, English critic, screenwriter, and a conservative member of Parliament all help to illustrate that the predisposition for erotic spanking occurs within a multitude of social groups within society, as well as illustrate that it is not as rare as the reader may believe.

As for the exclusion of trivia from Wikipedia; it is usually to prevent the accumulation of long lists of random information that could better be inserted into the article. All this information is only present in one sentence though, and as stated by WP:TRIVIA:

A trivia section is one that contains a disorganized and "unselective" list. However, a selectively populated list with a relatively narrow theme is not necessarily trivia, and can be the best way to present some types of information.

Also, the term "minor British celebrities" is a bit inappropriate considering the people listed. Lawrence of Arabia is a near legendary figure in military history, and the film made after him is considered the 4th greatest film of all time by the American Film Institute, and any military history buff, or British person, or film buff should instantly recognize his name. Frank Bough used to have high visibility when he was on TV. The others are similarly recognized within their perspective fields as well.

Perhaps some representation from some outside of Britain would help add to it, or a sentence explaining why they are being listed to make it seem less trivial, but the inclusion of this information I feel enhances the article.--AerobicFox (talk) 08:09, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

A preference for spanking is similar to any other sexual preference involving consenting adults. Like other sexual preferences, we should only attribute it people who have self-identified has having that proclivity. So if someone has written a memoir in which they discuss it, then I don't see any problem with listing their name here, even if the people are only barely notable enough for a Wikipedia biography. But if it's only surmised or inferred by a by a pop biographer then it's probably not appropriate to include.   Will Beback  talk  08:28, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Agreed. I believed the biography of T.E. Lawrence to be legitimate since it is entitled "The Authorized Biography of T. E. Lawrence", but I did not check the others. If any seem suspect we should remove them as mentioning that there is speculation they may have enjoyed erotic spanking would not add much to the article especially considering there are plenty of notable people that are open about it, or that there is clear evidence of it. --AerobicFox (talk) 08:32, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Do any of the sources list notable examples of practitioners? Or aren't there perhaps sexual surveys commenting on its prevalence? Citing such a source might be a better approach than compiling a list from disparate sources. By the way, I feel this article has too many illustrations relative to the amount of text. Two or three images and a Commons link to the rest would do just as well. --JN466 16:04, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Most surveys on this typically deal with BDSM activities in general, and do not specifically survey erotic spanking. I havn't checked the sources for a list of notable practioners yet, but I will look into finding such a list. Agreed there are currently too many images especially since they are all bunched up. I have removed and reorganized some. --AerobicFox (talk) 07:00, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
There's no requirement that lists in articles have appeared previously in sources. That's true for stand-alone lists. I agree that few illustrations are necessary.   Will Beback  talk  07:05, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Where are the photos of men being spanked?[edit]

Why is it always photos of women who are nude or sexually involved in photos on Wikipedia? Are the WikiProject Pornography patrol squeamish about photos of men? 69.125.134.86 (talk) 01:43, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Why is it necessary for this article to ignore the gneral rule: "As a general rule, images should not be set to a larger fixed size than the 220px default (users can adjust this in their preferences)."--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 19:11, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

s/p[edit]

Say if "s/p" means erotic spanking. Jidanni (talk) 12:33, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Hard/heavy vs soff/light erotic spanking[edit]

It seems to me that among those that like to be spanked, they differ as to how hard they like their spankings. In some cases, they may prefer lighter spankings that what you would expect if you were a kid receiving a spanking as punishment. I believe this is something that people who practice erotic spanking between each other discuss beforehand, just as with any other form of S&M practice. Shouldn't this sort of info be included in the article? --50.152.139.176 (talk) 09:47, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Spanking positions[edit]

I have added a refimprove tag to the Spanking positions section. The section has no references at all and is the section even needed in the first place? I would just delete it but I would also see others' thoughts on it too. SirkablaamTalk 11:16, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
