New Poll: Would You Watch….

There has been some interesting discussion on the idea of flogging women.  Most people who visit and participate in this blog are very much into watching men take the lash.  We have even had a question before on whether women should be flogged, but would you want to watch it?  Cast your vote and give us the reasons for it in the comments!

  1. If nobody else is going to comment, I'll start this off. The "shirtless punishment" subtitle for the blog is relevant here. What I've always found fascinating are the bare-back floggings with the cat, administered to convicts, seamen, etc., especially in historical contexts. These don't involve anything that would be considered nudity. In the case of a female, a bare-back flogging would imply nudity above the waist (did it really happen that women would be stripped to the waist and flogged through the streets of London in the early 19th century? How degrading... and exciting...). Perhaps a flogging administered to a female should have a harness of some sort, shielding her front, to prevent the whip wrapping around and catching a nipple, and allow some degree of modesty.

  2. As a female with much interest in the subject, I think I can safely comment on an acceptable method. I found a video on Youtube (think it was of the show Nikita) where she is whipped with a rod-like implement. BUT, only the back of her shirt was lifted, over her head and tucked beneath her chin. It provided a fully bare back and decent side access, but her modesty was intact. The key to holding it in place is leaving her arms through the sleeves, or even a tank top would work too.

    Also on Youtube is a SOF Hired Guns clip with a female prisoner being flogged. Again, the back is sufficiently bared...the guard actually uses a knife to cut away the shirt and then very slowly unfastens her bra strap and tucks both around her sides. Once again, the sleeves are left intact and hold the shirt in place.

    I've experimented with the first method, and it definitely works if it's a stretchy spandex type shirt, plus it also provides the extra neck coverage in case of a stray blow. And it's an extra bonus to show lifting the shirt on camera and sweeping her hair over her shoulder in readiness for what's coming.

    And yes, as Brendan said, completely shirtless floggings did actually happen to women back in the day, especially in the Australian colonies. There's a nice write-up on Wikipedia on it that I've seen.

  3. Thanks, WannaBet, for the info on attempting to preserve modesty during the flogging of women. There's an interesting video clip at

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpGbVlhIMhc

    showing a woman being whipped while wearing what appears to be a garment specifically designed for allowing access to the bare back. Of course, this is a movie, and it's far from clear just how authentic this sort of thing would be.

  4. All videos should admit good-looking guys only, or the blog wouldn't be attractive.

  5. @Anonymous: But what about women?

  6. A good question is, why don't people want to see women whipped? I've read some answers on here in various threads already, and they all seem to be geared toward, 'women are weaker, it's disturbing, it upsets me, etc'.

    I think one reason we think this way is because the movies and foreign news clips have slanted our opinions by making women's floggings so much more brutal in appearance than men's. Virtually every man's flogging in film is him taking it fairly well, while on the other hand, nearly every woman's one has her going to pieces instantly. On a side note to that, I'm a musician, and I've also noticed that the music is generally darker and more dramatic for women.

    The subtle differences make you leave the film feeling disgusted at a woman's 'torture', rather than excitement at watching a 'real man's punishment'. I will admit, there are some women's AND MEN'S floggings on Youtube that I don't care to see again, just because they're not my image of a flogging. I said in another thread that I don't care to watch 'screamers', men or women alike. Not all flogging clips are created equal, and I measure a good clip by certain standards, regardless of whether it's a man or woman seized up.

    Too bad those of us that actually would watch a woman's flogging will be outvoted by those that wouldn't.

    1. I totally agree. Any person who strips to the waist and walks towards the whipping post has my respect.

  7. What kind of crap is this, all vid's must be of good looking guys? Anonymous, whoever you are, you're like way off base with that comment.

  8. If a man's a man and takes his lashes I always like to see fortitude and the manifestation of big brass ones, he doesn't have to be an A&F model or a boxer. But I wince at the idea of standing by and letting a woman take lashes when I should be taking them for her. Sorry, ladies, just an old-fashioned guy here. BUT I'd take a severe flogging from a woman if she'd like, really lay into me. Sometimes we guys don't learn when you talk nice to us and its got to be spelled out for us across our backs and shoulders.

    Richie, think you said somewhere here, the sound of a whip cracking gets you going, same way here. I was lucky enough to see Starship Troopers with a likeminded buddy and I gripped his arm during the lashing, said how lucky Johnny was to get that, and we left before it was over, I needed to feel that crack across my back so bad. Just made my balls tingle.

  9. See above: not the same Anonymous as the other guy, Mike posted it but I can't sign in on my regular google account for some reason, keeps going in an endless loop. So Anonymous here and above is Mike.

  10. Yah, I've got the same problem with the Google account. It doesn't pull in my profile pic, and it keeps telling me to sign in.

  11. Yup, the crack of a whip nuts me up right away, dude. Man, just looking at a freakin' pic of one does the same thing.

    The problem with the whipping in Troopers was that it just didn't last long enough, it sorta faded out before the 10 lashes were completed.

  12. Mike here.
    ST for sure should have showed all ten. Day I saw it I had to take 20--but not with a superlong bullwhip, alas. But it was singletail rawhide and spreadeagled in my brah's basement.
    Like you, just seeing a coiled black bullwhip or a photo of one gets me going big time. Get that urge to take off my shirt.

  13. Didn't know where else to post this, but are there any more new videos in the works, Buddy? Would love to see some new material!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes! We have some new videos in the works. I think everyone will LOVE what we're going to show you.

  15. We always divide the lashes, for every 1 lash the wife gets I must get 5,, The 1 to 5 ratio works for us. if we're playing with another couple and the male is whipping, it goes to 1 to 10,,

    ReplyDelete
  16. 1 to 5 ratio? Good thing I'm not playing with you all then...I can take anywhere from 50 to 120 just by myself depending on what's used to inflict. If using 1 to 5, that'd be one hurtin' tore up dude.

  17. as a female, i find being stripped to the waist and flogged and/or whipped highly erotic. the walk to the whipping post or overhead chains is filled with a sort of erotic humiliation. i wonder what those observing my journey are thinking.
