Why Does Caning Hurt The Most? #BDSM

caning

A cane is a serious play implement. In the hands of the wrong person, it can be your worst nightmare. This thin piece of wood is more than capable of breaking skin and leaving large, bleeding welts in its wake. Even in the hands of one of the most experienced users, you’re probably going to wish you had never been born  by the end of the session.

It’s basically because all the impact is concentrated on one thin strike point. The thinner the area of impact, generally the more it will hurt. This is why crops and canes hurt far more than paddles and hands. A cane is also very flexible allowing for an impressive recoil, so the longer the cane, the more brutal its effect. Longer canes will also require more experience to use.

Due to their thinness and the ability to be swung viciously, canes can hit deep tissue – which is what makes them so painful. The strike generally takes a few seconds before the recipient will feel the damage, but when the burns begins it will take their breath away.

Technique

Because it takes a while for the pain to register, it’s best to use slow strokes that are perhaps an inch apart. Due to the trauma a cane cause, care is needed to make sure that each stroke hits a different part of the flesh.

Care When Playing

A cane is not something you can use in a crowded place. The backswing can be just as dangerous as the forward stroke, and catching someone unawares with one of these beasties isn’t going to go down particularly well. This is one of those implements that needs experienced instruction and at least a few ‘tutoring’ sessions before you put your thoughts into action. It isn’t something that can be used in the average bedroom – more space is needed.

The tailbone at the top of the buttocks must be avoided at all costs and people are often surprised just how far this bone reaches. If hit it can cause permanent and severe injuries. Attention should focus on the lower buttocks and tops of thighs.

Make sure participants have their SAFE WORDS handy 😉

  1. I’m a new subscriber, and I adore your blog. The only problem? I have to keep myself from falling into all of the posts! Keep them coming. Oh, and if I ever venture into the lifestyle, I’m keeping my ass far away from the cane. 🙂

  2. I’m intrigued…for research purposes only! 😉 Thanks for providing this, there were many details I didn’t know–such as the tailbone, for example–and though I know the strokes are supposed to be measured out, I didn’t know why. Very informative!
