BDSM isn’t for everyone, but that hasn’t stopped a lot of people from exploring some of the lighter acts of S&M. Spanking is a fun sex act to try, and because you can go as hard or as light as you want, it is the perfect way to dip your toe into BDSM. However, there are some out there using spanking in an unusual way.
When we think of therapy we think of lying back on a couch and telling someone our deepest and darkest secrets. There are some who see it a little differently, and have been using spanking therapy to help themselves work through any problems they have.
Intrigued? We know that we are! So here is everything that you need to know about spanking therapy, including why people choose it, how it works, and what it can do for you.
What is spanking therapy?
It might seem like an unusual way to help someone deal with the things in their life that they are struggling with, but it seems that many people are trying out spanking therapy as an alternative method to traditional therapies.
Therapeutic spanking, better known as spank therapy, is exactly how it sounds. Instead of seeing someone to be spanked as punishment, or to be turned on, you’ll be spanked to help you focus on your goals or perhaps spanked to get you through a mental block.
There are, however, some who do go for punishment. Often though it is not connected with a sexual fantasy. They seek therapeutic spanking in order to help rid themselves of guilty for something. This “something” could be a recent event or even something that occurred many years before.
Why do people love being spanked?
Being spanked is usually thought of as an incredibly erotic experience. It feels kinky to be smacked by someone else in the bedroom, and even if it is done as a punishment, it is still something that many find they actually enjoy.
We already know, through many different articles and scientific studies, that pain can be pleasurable, and that is what spanking is. It can be a huge turn on for us if done in the right way.
When you are spanked you give yourself over to someone else. They have control, and while you have a safe word you can use to take a break, you still feel as though control has been taken from you. This is really erotic. This, combined with the fact that we get a rush of adrenaline and endorphins from pain, means that spanking is one of the first BDSM activities many choose to try when they start out.
What makes spank therapy different?
Of course, spanking therapy is different. Instead of going for erotic pleasure or to experience a sexual atmosphere, you’ll go to be given a smack on the backside and get you on your way to dealing with the stresses of life.
Found that work is making it difficult for you to concentrate on what really matters? A good spanking session might just help you out. It effectively wakes you up. The sudden smack on the backside or on your thigh can jolt you to your senses, making you realise just what it is that you should be concentrating on.
By using spanking in this way, it can also help you de-stress. You’ll find that each slap helps to release a little tension from your body and leave you feeling great. With therapeutic spanking, you have a safe outlet for your stress with professionals in charge, and because it is not a sexual situation you might just find that it is easier to let go.
Would you try it?
I am happy to admit that I have tried spanking a few times. It is a huge turn on to feel someone’s hand, or a paddle, smacking your ass, and the sound just makes it even better. Therapeutic spanking, however, is another matter. That said, I would definitely be happy to try it and see what it could do for me. The worst that could happen is that I find it does nothing.
Going to a therapist for a spank might seem unusual to some. They might prefer to try it in the comfort of their own home instead. If this is you then don’t worry. You can instead visit a local dominatrix and try spanking with them! They’ll know just what to do to give you an experience you’ll never forget.
