Good old fashioned English caning

When Aunty started to explore spanking content on the Internet - this was about a decade ago - she came across the picture attached to this post - and instantly fell in love with it.

Contrary to many reader's assumptions, Aunty is not English. So, one must understand that, until she discovered the spanking Internet, Aunty's only experience of the cane came from a couple of scenes in movies and some references in novels such as Tom Brown's Schooldays (a book belonging to Aunty's father which she read with great interest to glean information on those venerable public school traditions of fagging and caning.)

What she saw in this image was a peek into a mysterious and exciting world where schoolgirls had their skirts lifted and their 'regulation knickers' lowered for 'six of the best' from the cane.

It felt exotic and deliciously mysterious in a very old-world kind of way.

Of course, Aunty was later to discover that girls in the UK used to be caned on their hands (if at all), and the cane had become an anachronism, even in the land of its birth.

But, the way the soft sunlight glows behind the headmaster - the posh-looking wood paneling, velvet curtains, and the authenticity of the miscreant's actions in covering her exposed cheeks with her hand, made this image seem almost real in contrast to most spanking pornography available at that time.

To this day, Aunty is especially fond of English schoolgirl scenarios in her spanking play.

And it probably has a lot do with this very unique picture.

It is not quite true that girls got caned on their hands, if at all.

I went to a co-educational school in GB from 1971 to 1976. One of my most erotic memories of this time was watching a female classmate receive 6 of the best with the cane in 1974. She had to bend over at the blackboard and received the strokes over her gymslip. She hopped about a bit as the strokes landed and we also had a peek at her non-regulation panties.

She was punished for cheating at a Latin test.

darn it aunty, you've forced me out of the darkness with that sweeping generalisation.
i went to an all-girls' grammar in the mid-70's and got swished on my bum for getting my school thrown out of a museum. so there.

Feel free to add this to my other comment:

The state can be the biggest bully of all. I'm not for doing nothing, but I'm quite convinced that our legal paradigms for fighting bullying, sexual harrasment, racism and many other ills of our society are all wrong and often do more harm than good.

Oh yes they did AA - In the early 70's my wife's elder sister and her three female friends each got 4 of the best on the backside from the female deputy head for drinking and breaking bounds (sprung down the pub) at a boarding school in the West Country. Not bare alas, over pyjama's and knickers, dressing gown off.

grrlbitesdog - I think it was worth generalizing just to force you and other traditional lurkers out of "the darkness" :) Many thanks for your comment.

I'm glad to hear that some English girls' schools used the cane on the place where it is designed to be used, the bottom. Caning of hands is a barbaric practice that can easily cause injury to any of the small bones in the hand. Whereas a bottom is nice and fleshy and can easily take six or more hard strokes of the cane without any serious long-term injury.

Identifying the girl here - that's just plain wrong

grllbitesdog - apologies, I missed that when I was moderating comments. I have removed the comment with the name. That was totally inappropriate.

that's fair, aunty.
this is a fun blog, btw, whereas others are too lascivious or creepy for my taste.

Thanks, GBD. Though, I think you'll find most spanking blogs are not "lascivious" or creepy. I have always been impressed with the quality of blogging by members of the spanko community. Why not check out the blogs on my link list. The vast majority are written by talented, creative,funny and insightful people.

I had a delightful correspondence with someone who went to a girls' school in Australia where naughty girls were subject to the cane, slipper, ruler or hairbrush depending on the offence.
I suspect that many an Irish girl got her bottom warmed as part of the educational experience, but have no evidence.

Great post...lovely picture! However, i just can't get into the whole caning thing -- I find it kind of, well, un-erotic, in my humble opinion....

Cheers,

I got a backside thrashing in "68 at a UK sec mod school--(one of many ooch!!)it was the dep head who was most fearsome,she had a habit of showing you her long & wide hand & asking "what is this?" If youd been prewarned on 1st visit to that office youd be better off saying "smacking hand miss"---but if your mouth had a tendancy as mine did!!! to wise crack & play dumb (I never got away wi that!) but to say "a big hand miss!" which I did well I found out she could wizz you around one armed, whip up your skirt,bend you over & ---- oh god did you find out HOW hard,long & with wot force & speed it made contact with your butt!!!aaaargh! my 1st offence was for releasing the bio lab stick insects into the dom science store cupboard! well I was dared & could never resist a dare!!!never found out HOW I got blame tho!!! even tho was true---- I couldnt sit comfortably for a week after that! on future occasions when I knew I was up for one,I learnt art of subtle submission to answer "smakin ha--" never seemed to get full words out before the thwacks came down, but at least that just got about 4 instead of uncountable amount 1st offence got me. Why didnt it hurt her hand tho? never understood that! still dont think deserved it---only told her so once tho, cos when said "that aint fair!" vroom I was spun round for a second lot!!!Thank gawd they didnt have the fearsome paddle in "auntys"picture is all I can say!!!! the plimsole was murderous---i guess thats when her hand had done overtime on someone else---& was my bad luck to be next in line!!!! THAT took yer breathe away!!!! I didnt have reg knickers on then tho---just thinner ordinary ones!!!at least reg/gym ones were thicker! ho hum---happy days? ummmm oh er Im not sure!!!

This is incorrect, there were many cases of girls getting caned on their skirts. It was just not as common as the abuse against British males. Women were not penalized as much in their society, but nor was it as easy for them to reach positions of authority.

I dont think it was common for girls to be caned on the bottom. I got the cane twice across the hands. We did get the slipper on the bottom however usually across the skirt and the ruler on the legs.
