BDSM Caning for Beginners

Red High Heels and Cane for BDSM

Do you ever fancy the crook of a cane across your behind?

Spanking is a widely enjoyed form of hanky panky across the kink spectrum, and even with those who don’t identify as kinky. An enthusiastic swat is really an extension of a caress, and gives the spanker an opportunity to play with the spankee’s ass. The receiver experiences enjoyable sensations and increased arousal from blood flow and power plays.

Who enjoys caning?

If everyone enjoys an occasional wallop, more committed spanking practices enter the realm of fetish and BDSM. Power dynamics of top and bottom or dominant and submissive come into play. There is a wide range of equipment for diverse spanking tastes—from hands to whips to paddles to canes.

Why do kinksters like caning?

Caning is a specific form of spanking that kinky lovers enjoy for variety, or because of a very particular preference for the kind of sensation a cane brings. It is starker and more intense than a hand or paddle, so beginners should always learn from someone experienced or educate themselves on spanking safety and cane safety. It is easy to injure someone by thwacking a muscle or bone, or tearing the skin.

What safety measures should I consider?

A standard rule of safety when caning is to keep strikes uniform. This allows the submissive to predict the sensation, which allows him to relax or to move her body to compensate. It’s also a good idea to use nonporous canes if they will be shared, and clean the surfaces carefully before and after use. Also, make sure there are no splinters or gouges.

There are two kinds of strikes in caning—the sting strike, and with a heavier hand or a thicker model, the thud. Beginners will want to stick with the sting, and most diehards too: the sting is kind of the point.

The most important rule is to strike on the fleshy part of the buttocks most of the time and maybe the upper thighs if there is enough fat there to handle the cane.

Never strike near the kidneys, face, tailbone, knees, ankles, feet, hands, or head.

What kinds of canes are available?

Rattan: Far and away the most loved cane for this purpose is made of lightweight rattan. It’s a flexible material and easy to wield. It gives a satisfying zip in the air and achieves the intense sting that most are looking for.

Bamboo: This cane looks and feels a lot like rattan, but steer clear of it simply because it is so prone to splintering. It has razor sharp edges when it dries out and keeping it moist is a hassle. Best to use the similar but much more useful rattan.

Plastic: Plastic is a synthetic substance, and also makes a good standard cane for BDSM play. It’s flexible and easy to control and gives a satisfying stinging sensation.

Lucite: Lucite feels similar but more dense to plastic, and it can be aesthetically appealing and artfully designed. However, it is heavier and rigid and not usually a favorite wand of either top or bottom.

Fiberglass: It’s not likely you’ll need anything other than plastic or rattan, either starting out or as an aficionado. But if you did, you would probably try fiberglass next. It’s light and easy to direct, with a little less flexibility, meaning a more painful strike.

There are other types of canes if you become a connoisseur or collector, but most caning enthusiasts on both sides of the stick find all they ever need in a classic rattan.

Remember to have a safe word and keep communication a priority. Enjoy the blows!
