I have always preferred two punishment positions when using impact implements to punish a slave because a slave has committed an infraction, or I wish to deter infractions with a deterrent punishment, or I want to punish just because I can.
The first punishment position is where the slave has wrists secured behind back and must kneel on the floor resting on knees, shins and forehead. Ideal for the paddle or cane or quirt in particular. It is good to take a break and stand by their head pressing the side of shoe or boot lightly against their cheek to highlight the difference in status between Mistress and slave.
The other favourite punishment was – slave’s wrists secured behind their back and bent face down over the end of the dining table, with ankles wide apart secured to the table legs. However a SERIOUS blow with cane or tawse or quirt could cause the slave to actually move the table as they react to the pain. Less than ideal. So,
I NOW HAVE A BETTER PUNISHMENT POSITION. Still with wrists secured behind back and bent face down over the end of the dining table, but now with ankles secured TOGETHER and thighs secured TOGETHER with a long leather strap just above the knees. While this removes access to scrotum or labia (depending on slave gender), there seems to be much more helplessness and immobility. There is no moving of the table in response to a SERIOUS blow. Quite amazing that after 15 years of punishing, I now find a preferred position for my luckless slaves. (Or are they very lucky!?)
