“…or to spare the rod spoiled the child”:
An short historical synopsis plus how to implement it into your
BDSM
BRIEF CP HISTORY
Schoolgirls, naughty boys and sexy teachers, harsh
disciplinarian, nun! These are a few of my favorite role-plays! One
does indeed wonder how in today’s politically correct society, corporal
punishment might still occur. With it for the majority being prohibited
in most USA schools nowadays, few in the community have had first
hand knowledge on what is involved in the actual punishment. Yet, it
is the stuff of what many of us in the scene fantasize about. Instead
we receive our input from videos, books and the Internet. All these
tend to glamorize what is reality was deigned to be a severe form of
behavior correction.
CP –Corporal punishment (CP from this point forward) was
traditionally administered by school figures, law makers, spouses or
parents to correct unwanted behavior in their subject. Examples of CP
can be found as far back to the 14-15
th
century. Consider the public
stockades and flogging used as lawful punishment specific to the
crimes. The history of CP has deep roots in our world’s civilization. At
one time, it was the major form of behavior control. Fear of losing a
body part, public humiliation, obtaining permanent scars or even death
can be powerful deterrents to committing a crime. These methods
were a means to an end for our early ancestors. In recent times we
have witnessed the usage of CP in foreign countries to correct behavior
of suppose dissidents. We can all recall the Singapore caning as the
whisk heard around the world. There are many areas of the world
where CP is still actively used: Africa, Caribbean and Indonesia. And
believe it or not, here in the US, there are still laws on the books of 21
states allowing CP. Illinois in not one of them. Indiana, Alabama and
Louisiana are a few among the 21.

While the topic of CP has been written and researched to death, little
has been done with the eroticism of CP. How did the change from
feared punishment to erotic kink come about? This seminar will focus
primarily on educationally administered CP as that is where most of us
derive our fantasies from. In line with Freud, those events which occur
to us during each developmental stage can leave life long impressions
on our psyche, especially our subconscious where the sexual drive’s
most primitive desires reside. Thus, if one experiences CP during one
of these formative stages, it will leave an imprint upon one’s psyche.
Manifestation of this imprint might not occur to a later date, most
often when one becomes sexually active in their teens. This is a key
point to remember in our lifestyle as what we consider “triggers” can
arise from here.
Corporal punishment first became a prominent issue in our history
during the Victorian era. Up to that point, general society viewed CP as
a means to an end. This view continued in the Victorian era, but it is
here we can also find the first examples of eroticism featuring CP that
were widely distributed within general society. There are prior
incidences of CP in literature and art, but for the most part these lean
towards the spiritual and religious aspect of it. It is here in the era of
repression and propriety that we find overt examples of the eroticism
of CP. I believe one reason for this is the introduction of all the new
methods of delivering media at the time, especially the camera. Very
similar to our technology boom of recent years, the Victorian
experienced a similar movement.
It was expected that the educators were responsible for molding the
character of their charges through any means at hand. This often
resulted in those who disobeyed being the recipient of CP. CP did have
a few unspoken guidelines for school officials to follow. Unlike the
fantasies we see today, CP was usually administered by a person of
the same sex. Males were punished by the male teachers. From
“Experiences of Flagellation “written in 1885 comes this summary of
what CP was designed to originally do:”The Divine Law of government
by pain is admirable, and we all know from experience, that is
perfectly compatible with a state of pure social felicity” (pg.3).

The way CP was administered also tended to be gender specific during
Victorian times. Males were punished on the buttocks, girls on the
hands. This was so done due to the usual public nature of punishments
to protect the girl’s modesty. There was a very practical reason that
also affected this decision. At the time, women wore long skirts with
multiple layers and corsets. It would have been very difficult and
comical for the teacher and student to raise all this material. However,
upon the advent of the traditional Catholic school uniforms which we
so love in our lifestyle, skirt’s length and weight no longer mattered.
One life-styler recounted her experience of being struck on the tops of
the back of her thighs by a nun. If you ask my for my opinion, all
these school teachers knew the possibly erotic implications of CP and
thus took measures to prevent it.
Hands were usually struck for quick and immediate correction. The
back of the hands have many small bones in it so palms were more
likely hit for multiple strikes. Plus, it hurt more! One method of
punishment very popular within parochial schools was caning or
tawsing the palms. Many people will recall standing in front of the
class with palms face up while a nun administered the strokes. This
became popular in the early and mid 19
th
century, reaching its height
in the 40-50s.
Besides the pain inflicted on the offender, CP administers often
employed another very strong human emotion:
embarrassment/humiliation. Great deals of punishments were meted
out in public forums with one’s peers as audience. Teachers reinforced
the punishment by having it witnessed by one’s own classmates or
even a younger class. Public standing after received punishment
allowed these mates to taunt and ridicule the punished student. The
idea being the offender thus would receive this battement to keep
them from future indiscretions. The verbal embarrassment and
enforced respect of having to say “Thank you Sir/Ma’am, may I have
another” heightened one’s aversion to disobeying again. Other
activities administrators employed were corner time, hall time, sign
wearing and penals (writing lines).

CP began to disappear in the 1960s with the advent of the Flower
power generation and the Human Rights League who viewed it overall
as inhumane and degrading. Prior till then, small groups and
individuals had spoken out against CP, but this was the first generation
where it became not only a larger social issue, but a political platform.
By the mid-1980s, CP had virtually disappeared in all public schools
here and the UK. However, late into the 1990s, there was one area
where CP had not diminished: college hazing. And currently, while it
may have ceased in many areas, for the most part it has simply gone
underground. The old frat paddle is the US die-hard of CP.
INCORPORATING CP INTO OUR KINK:
How can we take the harsh punishment of CP and incorporate it safely
into our kink? Our first step should be to decide whether the CP will be
an actual punishment or a fantasy role-play scenario. A key point to
remember when applying any type of punishment to those whom we
play with is to differentiate the punishment activity from one
administered for pleasure. If we administer the punishment exactly
like a sensual one, we can do some serious emotional damage to our
subs. With the role-play you have one thing a punishment does not:
the warm-up. If I am going to punish one of my slaves with CP, I
usually do not give them a warm-up. Many people will have issues
with this fact as it seems to go against SSC. Keep in mind though; it is
still SSC or RACK if the slave is fully informed of why they are being
punished and how the punishment will be administered. The punisher
needs to remember to create a distinct line between the punishment
and the rest of their interaction with the slave. When it is over, it is
over. A clearly delineated line must be clear to the slave that this is
punishment. Be sure the slave understands why they are being
punished, what actions caused you to react in such a way. Make it
very clear; even ask them to repeat what they feel their offense was.
You might be surprised at how different their view on it is. This
interaction is a sign of temperance and understanding in a domme. If
you can listen to their point of view and consider that they might see
things differently then you thus negating the need for this punishment,
you will be the wiser and better domme for it.
