A Strapping, Licking or Tanning?

I have always wondered what the difference is between, say, a strapping, a licking, a ‘hide’ tanning, or even a ‘hiding.’ A question of linguistics or spanking techniques? In my mind, I associate all these phrases with the South for some reason, and worn-out leather belts being slowly unbuckled.

Anyway, I posed the question to “Southern Angel,” today’s Cherry Red Report “Guest Blogger,” who writes about her otk adventures with her significant other, the ever loving but quite firm “JD,” on the excellent site A Southern Angel Finding Her Way — both of whom appear to have considerably more experience in these disciplinary affairs than this writer. Any readers’ feedback on this question are most welcome.

Thank you Southern Angel for taking the time to give us your thoughts:

“JD and I both really liked your question. Although I did grow up in the South, I am not all that familiar with Southern-style spankings since I was rarely spanked as a child (I was an angel, even back then). But, JD has spent considerable time fantasizing and reading stories regarding Southern-style spankings.

“After some discussion with JD, we think many of those terms are synonymous. JD considers a strapping to be a spanking administered with a strap specifically. A licking and a tanning could both be administered with a thin belt or a switch. A tanning could also be administered with a paddle (just my opinion, JD does not agree with me on this point). A hiding would usually be associated with a switch. JD also associates Southern-style spankings with woodsheds and especially likes the idea of a naughty girl being sent to cut her own switch.”

  1. Hello!

    I am so honored to be your Guest Blogger! JD and I have really been enjoying your blog and are glad to help out in any way we can. 🙂 I won’t say we are the most experienced couple out there, but we try to play as much as possible and always have fun.

    JD does have one request…please keep posting sexy spanking pics. 😉

  2. Was really neat to read. I enjoy southern angel’s blog very much. 🙂
    It’s my first time to your blog and I will be back…enjoyed reading.

  3. I really liked this post, very informative. I agree with Southern Angel about what each term meant. However I always associated ‘licking’ with the belt, as in “I’ll give you a lick of the belt in a minute, if you don’t behave!” Rather than the switch, but then again I am not a southerner 😉

    I also love Southern Angel’s blog and am dissapointed I didn’t find it sooner than I did!

  4. Wow! I love southern-style or themed spankings, they’re my favorite roleplays (ex. little house on the prairie). They’re just so classic. I also agree with Southern Angel that many of those terms are synonymous, but with the exception of strapping. For me a strapping is codeword for Daddy’s belt. I also associate southern-style spankings with barns, woodsheds, even old churches and being sent to cut your own switch. 😉 Hugs, Sugarpie
