Spanko Brunch 2.0 #24

Welcome, one and all, to our weekly brunch. Many of us identify ourselves as either a Top / Spanker / Dom or a bottom / spankee / sub. For others, it isn't as cut and dried. That leads us to today's topic of switching. Not the long, slender, whippy implement, but taking the opposite role in a spanking scene.

Have you ever tried spanking from the other side of the paddle? If so, was it something you enjoyed and would do again? If not, is switching something you would like to try? If you regularly take on both roles, how did that come about?

Join in the discussion by leaving a comment, and once everyone has had a chance to speak, I will publish a summary of our conversation.

I have never been the spanker. It not only doesn't have any attraction to me, but I have a real aversion to it. I know it may sound odd coming from someone who asks someone else to inflict a high degree of physical pain on me, but it is something I just can't do myself. Particularly in the context of "hurting" a woman. Just can't go there.

I am already on both sides of the paddle although I spank her a lot more than she does me. The first time I got it from her was not really by choice. She was going for a girl’s night out and decided that I needed a paddling to ensure I behaved while she was out. It was very enjoyable and kept her in my mind the entire night. I gave her a heck of a spanking when she got home.

I just love the concept of both
sides now, in which my partner's enjoyment as a giver, or as a receiver, is in the splendor of the moment.

I have only ever been on the receiving end. I have no desire to switch ever.

I have never had the urge to switch or even try it, i don't see myself as a Dom or Master. I am a plain and simple top. I love to spank ladies that like to be spanked :)

I am a switch and have always enjoyed both. I have always been that way. My guy is not, though. He is definitely the spanker. I don't mind being on the receiving end and taking a breather from being the spanker, so it all works out nicely. =)

Ever since I was young I've known I had an interest in spanking. Then when I was old enough I tried spanking some ladies. It was fun but not as much fun as I had imagined and I found myself reluctant to inflict anything more than a very light spanking on even the most spankable bottoms. Eventually I realised that I had misinterpreted my desires and that I actually wanted was to spanked. Since then I have been almost exclusively a receiver of punishment and have enjoyed it immensely.

after 20 years of presenting my bottom to her, I can only think of 2 times I spanked her, and they were more gentle love taps.
In our house she is the spanker and I'm the spankee and we love it that way.

It is always my bottom in the firing line, and even after a very sound spanking, with my bottom blazing, I don't think I would enjoy taking my revenge on D.s muscular backside. S.

I am a top and do not switch with my partner. However, once a year, I "switch" so I can know what she is feeling. We bought a new implement and it did look a bit more intense then our usual play ones. That night was a good time to switch.

While I didn't enjoy this "session" (nor do I enjoy any being on the receiving end), it was not as fearsome as it looked.

One side effect we noticed: for awhile after this switch, I tend to be less intense when I spank her. That's another reason why I only switch once a year.

For reference: we spank for fun and other non punishment reasons.

In the early days I suppose you could say we switched a bit but not in a determined way and really it just faded out, it didn't work for us.

Love,

We've tried it, didn't work for him, which is fine with me.

Finally timed it right to comment. Wish I had been timely on a few previous questions. I am a switch. In the mind I have always been since childhood, though only played as a top until college. Had a few switching relationships, though don't have a regular partner now. But my view of spanking is inflicting or receiving stinging pleasure and am not into discipline or punishment. But I find that I get enjoyment on both sides of the hand (my preference).

Jackie Berlant said...

I've switched with a few guys. Technically I could do it and please, but emotionally my head was not in it. I felt like I was play acting. Fantasies have always been about me being spanked.

Yes, you might say, I'm an alternating current, but prefer to be DC, dutifully compliant.

I have always been a switch. I would not have it any other way.

River Wild said...

I am always on the receiving end, and I have no desire to change that (except in those moments when he taunts me for not taking my spanking well, then I wish he knew how it felt). I have, however, thought about possibly spanking another female.
