Is a bruised bottom sexy?
Is a red bottom from a good spanking more attractive to look at than an unspanked bottom? When the internet was brand new, before I had created any spanking sites, just like most of you I was searching the web for spanking content. Content was very limited in those days, with most of the content being magazine scans uploaded to newsgroups. I will admit that in those days, what I was really looking for was severe content. With very little in the way of videos, all we really had to fuel our fantasies was photo content. Without actually being able to witness the spanking, the only thing that really could demonstrate to me that a real spanking took place was the marks on the bottom. Nothing turned me on more than a picture of a severely bruised bottom.
Over the years, as a result of more exposure to spanking content, as well as administering many spankings, my tastes have changed. For the most part, most pictures out there have videos to go with them, so we no longer have to doubt the intensity of the spanking that took place. I do not have to see a black and blue bottom in a spanking picture to know that a real spanking indeed took place. Just as with most aspects of spanking, when it comes to marks, my likes and dislikes are pretty specific. There are many producers out there that are shooting very severe spanking and especially caning videos. Ten years ago I never would have guessed that I would find content too severe for my tastes. It is not really even the fact that I find the spanking too severe, it is more the results that I am not a big fan of.
For me, nothing kills a hard spanking scene quicker than poor technique. I do not like to see pictures or videos in which the skin on someone’s butt is repeatedly broken. I fully understand the occasional skin breakage, and sometimes it is hard to avoid. Sometimes broken skin has more to do with someone’s diet and skincare than it does with the severity of the spanking. But a spanking or caning picture that shows multiple open wounds on the butt, turns me off in a big way. I think it boils down to the fact that as a spanker, you have certain responsibilities, and while it is your job to make sure the punishment is effective, safety is the highest priority. Someone who continues to swing a cane when a butt is bleeding is failing in more than one way. I guess I am picky in the fact that I really like to see a picture of a very bruised bottom from a caning, but if the lines are not straight, and crisscross every which way, it ruins the whole thing for me. The same is true with misplaced strokes. A picture can show a very thorough caning, with perfectly parallel lines, but if there are marks on the hip from the cane wrapping too far, the whole scene is ruined for me. You should know by now that I am obviously a big fan of punishments that involve a wooden school type paddle. But just as with the cane, I am looking for proper results when the punishment is over. I have posted many times about proper safety when using wooden implements. A nice bruised butt from a paddling is a sexy thing in my eyes, but if there are bruises from the paddling that are too high and close to the tail bone, then the picture loses all of its erotic elements in my eyes. Applied severely and properly, a well paddled bottom will have two sort of bulls eyes at the very lowest and fleshiest part of the bottom, and possibly “tram lines” which extend below the bruises.
Now, back to the original question, is a well spanked bottom attractive? As a full-time pervert, I would answer yes. I am sure the non-spankos out there think I am totally weird even trying to present an argument that redness, welts, or bruising on any part of the body can be attractive. But those marks carry with them something well beyond color. I think the sexiness comes from the story behind the marks. A red butt demonstrates something a little naughty, not just the behavior the resulted in the spanking, but the fact that as an adult this person gets spanked. A red bottom represents a shared and intimate moment between two people. I think for those who are spanked in their personal lives, their own red bottom carries with it a sense of pride in a strange sort of way. How many of you out there who are spanked, repeatedly look at your spanked bottom in the mirror until all marks have faded? I would guess that for most of you this is the case. Why do you do this? Are the marks sexy? Does looking at your spanked bottom remind you of the experience you went through?
The spanking pictures that are the most exciting to me, generally involve a very red butt, with no area left unspanked. I also like to see bruised bottoms when the marks are consistent and seem as though were achieved in a safe manner. I can find pictures like the two below quite exciting, even with the black and blue, because these pictures represent a properly, and safely, spanked bottom.
Unfortunately, most of the content we have to view has been done professionally with paid models receiving the spanking. For me, there is a time when an extremely marked butt can be the sexiest thing. It has to do with the story behind it. There is nothing more erotic or exciting in my eyes regarding spanking than the visible marks having truly been earned. It is one thing to see a black and blue butt from a girl who was paid to be spanked, and a far different thing from someone who is in a real life disciplinary relationship. A spanking that results in a bruised bottom that was earned as a result of their own behavior and actions is the sexiest of all. I wish there were more amateur spanking sites out there that showed this type of content. If given the choice to see the unspanked bottom of a 21 year old super model, or the spanked bottom of an average housewife who was spanked for offenses she committed in her consensual disciplinary relationship, I would choose the housewife every time. So for me, that answers the question as to if a spanked bottom is more attractive.
Comments:Bruised bottoms do nothing for me. But uniformly red bottoms (of the hand spanking variety) make me cry to the moon.
I recently discovered spankingbailey.com. The kind of bottom she often has there, I can't get enough of it.
I agree with Daniel however that what is most erotic is the submission, which is why there should be humiliation included in the punishment, so as to magnify the submission.
