Prison Strap

“Belt whipping” seems to be a popular hobby among male college students, if you can judge by the number of YouTube clips uploaded on the subject.  These kids take off their shirts and let their friends hit them once (or a few times) with belts, cords, ropes, or something similar.  They then run around screaming and sometimes writhing in pain.  There is an atmosphere of partying in these clips and much laughter.  It proves that whipping comes naturally to young men—almost like some rite of passage, although not institutionalized.  But belt whipping isn’t flogging:  it is more about braving one or two swats than with enduring full-on punishment.

WhippingDudes, in both our blog and our YouTube channel, is dedicated to the courage of men facing and enduring the pain of flogging.  We believe that it is entertaining and inspiring to watch a fit man exposing his bare back to the lash.  Various instruments can be used to carry out a flogging:  the traditional cat o’nine tails, straps, and single-tailed whips, with several variations available for each.  Today, we will discuss the Prison Strap.

A Prison strap is shorter and wider, and usually thicker and more rigid than the average leather belt.  It has a handle and sometimes has holes cut in the leather to give it more speed (and sting); it is traditionally applied to an offender’s exposed buttocks.  But WhippingDudes is about flogging, not spanking, so we apply the Prison Strap to a man’s bare back, as you can see in Shirtless Muscle Dude Gets Whipped.

Some people (myself included) find that the Prison Strap gives far harsher punishment than that given by the cat o’nine tails.  From personal experience, I can tell you that each hard stroke with a prison strap is like two lashes:  there is the initial sting on the skin, but then the pain instantly sinks into the muscles of your back—and that’s when you know that you’re being punished.  The first stroke with a prison strap is enough to make you know that you made a mistake in asking for it.  But the trademark of a man’s courage is to bear lashes of the Prison Strap on his back.

  1. I am glad I found your videos and blog. Last Saturday I took 120 lashes on my bare back, applied with a leather belt. For me, this is an extreme sport. It tests my physical endurance and willpower. I pay a man to strap me about once a month. He does it for the money and he says it gives him a good workout. He doesn't really enjoy doing it and I have to push him to keep it a real whipping. This is the problem: there seem to be many men who long to take the lash but few who want to apply it. I do not know why this is the case.

  2. From what I have read where the strap was applied varied from prison to prison - and sometime within a prison - so getting it across the back is valid. Yeah it is worse than a leather cat and almost impossible not to flinch, but not so sure worse than a recreation of a traditional cat made in something like tarred codline.

    I read about one prison where the max was 50 strokes across the back with one of those huge straps attached to an axe handle - and used it on the better built good looking convicts just for entertainment. Wish I had kept the article.

    As for the guy taking the role of the guard - in a consentual test of strength I reckon laying it on for real takes as much guts in its way as taking it. The reality was probanly different.

    (No log on but the same nutty hard case who posted to the humiliation thread.)

  4. Just watched the prison strap video again...it's my favorite part of that film. Just curious though, how many blows have you gone up to with the prison strap? And have you tried only that, without anything else before or after?

    You described it's effect in your first post here, and judging by your reaction in the video, it hurts a heck of a lot more than the cat. Just noting that it took about 30 hits with the cat to get the same outcry reaction as only the 3rd hit with the prison strap. Unless that's maybe because your back was already worked out pretty thoroughly by then? It looked like sheer agony by the 7-8th hit.

    So just wondering what your thoughts are, was it because of the build-up with the cat, or it really is so much more brutal?

  5. Yes this is perhaps strange, but I also like to get whipped. A real punishment on my bare ass as well.

  6. I was a US Naval Officer Lieutentant 29-32 years old in the 1980's. I always had a sort of fantasy of being given about 10 lashes by some younger enlisted guy with an insolent punk-ass attitude.

    1. You needed a leatherneck to whip you.

  7. I've taken a strapping from a real Louisiana prison strap--man, I mean to tell you it was something that I'll never forget--it sure was HOT! You got to be a man to take it!

    1. Man I'd love that! Severe, stripped down and excrutiating.

  8. The prison strap has a markedly different effect when applied across the back, than when lashed across the bare ass. Although a knotted cat 'o nine or a singletail can slice the skin of the back and cause serious and long-lasting injury, the strap hurts more due to the broader area covered by each stroke. Interestingly enough, that same factor of a wider impacting stroke, is what makes the strap safer to use on a guy's butt than narrower implements.

    1. The prison strap is meant to be used on the butt because it might use a spine injury when used on the back.

    2. That's true and of course movies usually depict strappings on the bare back since they were inhibited from showing naked buttocks.

      But bare back strapping is a worthy and beneficial punishment and should be awarded without hesitation with a goodly number of "licks" if care is taken in manner of seizing up and application of the strap. I was regularly strapped by my dad as a teen and had to bare my back for him, but he well laid on across my shoulders and upper back only and had me spread eagled against a wall to offer him a wide spread of shoulders and a broadened back to receive his licks and had to keep this spread throughout the flogging. He carefully avoided my lower back, spine, kidneys while still giving me a severe, much needed thrashing.

      The leather strap doesn't have to be heavy, either, and a slightly thinner strap is even more effective raising welts as is drilling holes throughout the "business end" to lessen air resistence and aid in the "well laying on". The body should "jump" with each lick if it's laid on as it should and must be for a disciplining. Most straps can be had with slightly rounded "dressed" edges or raw cut and sharp, the latter preferable when it's desirable that the weals are cut to blood when the strokes are "crossed". 25 licks bare back is a good start, most men can take and require 50.

      So yes, bare those backs for a good "taste of the leather" and do so with manly confidence, the need to discipline severely but with care and caution in the lay o' the strap.

  9. Wolf, have to agree with Anonymous, strapping on the back isn't dangerous unless you're doing something wrong. Maybe you've never tried it but a well muscled male back can absorb hard lashes from a strap just fine. I also agree with Anonymous about a lighter strap being best, though. The pain should be stinging not bruising. A leather strap landing flat across the skin can cause an incredible amount of pain with very little damage. I've done this multiple times give and take and it's *hard* to cut the skin with even a heavy jeans belt. The back should be well stretched and immobilized for maximum accuracy. Anonymous, not sure how your dad kept you from moving around during it, he must have disciplined you well for you to hold the proper position presenting your back for repeated lashes, most guys would have a reflex to turn away lower their arms to protect their backs.

    1. My dad expected me to maintain a good spread-eagle throughout the punishment and failure to do so meant he simply repeated the stroke. But I accepted his discipline and knew I needed it so usually submitted to him without question, bared my back and offered it up for leathering. I usually got 20 licks.

    2. Have to strip off for my punishment with the tawse - nine inch tails that give quite a sting without too much damage but, man, it hurts and I'm sore all over - also expected to maintain good spread position during it - try also to be quiet and not whimper. Number of "whipping" vidoes on YouTube shows that mebbe young man want cp. I prefer it as it gets it over with.

  10. It is true that back strapping is a valuable experience. The implement used on me was a short singletail whip that was not braided and was made of a light leather strap. My first session represented 36 lashes on my bare back; I was given 24 and asked for 12 more. My heaviest session was 150 lashes with that whip. I was tied up for the whipping and there was no safeword. My back was incredibly welted. People who whipped me say that my pain threshold is quite high and I can take almost any strapping and keep quiet. However, I would not use the Canadian prison strap on the back.

    1. A good back/lat leather strapping can be awesome and the pain if you nut it through enough lashes can be an amazing high. Congrats Wolf on that 150 and congrats Anonymous for having a great dad like mine who taught us and treated us like men.

      I refuse any session with a safe word. It makes me take it better knowing I must take each and every lash like on board ship or in the brig. Well and truly disciplined.
