Beginner's Guide To Caning

By Ekaterina Mironova

Having familiarized yourself with the art of spanking, you now feel like you are ready to handle more responsibility. Caning is the natural step up from spanking, allowing you to practice your hand in the administration of more directed pain. Word of the wise; only embark on this journey if you and your partner are physically and emotionally ready.


  • Always avoid the neck, tailbone, face and kidneys. These are sensitive areas and may lead to serious damages when hit even by mistake. Always ensure to direct your hits far away from these body parts.
  • To prevent damages caused by the cane bending or wraparound, always keep a pillow next to the intended hit spot. This way the pillow absorbs all the pressure and prevents wraparound, reducing risk of unintended damage.
  • Always ensure that the cane you are about to use is in top condition. Never use a cane that is damaged in any way or has splinters and broken ends. Damaged canes may cause the skin to break, exposing your partner to infections and undue pain.
  • Ensure that your hits are always parallel to each other. Crossed hits create a point where the pain is greatly intensified due to multiple hits and they may even cause severe damage.
  • Always use pillows and cushions to break in your new canes as a way to familiarize yourself with the canes before using them on your partner. This will help you establish the landing impact as you let the cane come down on your partner, reducing the risk of hitting too hard.
  • Never use a porous cane on multiple partners. The material absorbs the body fluids and traps them in the fibers, making them the best medium for infections transfer. For multiple partners, always have a dedicated cane for each person or get a nonporous cane that is cleaned thoroughly after every use.

Types of Canes

Choosing your desired cane depends on the number of partners you intend to practice with and the level of pain you choose to inflict. However, all canes fall under two broad categories based on their material composition;

  • Natural Fiber

For those who love the authenticity of old school corporal punishment, the natural canes are for you. Made from natural material, this will also be ideal for those who are enthusiastic about only owning natural products. However, the natural fibers are porous, making them conducive for trapping body fluids. When using natural fiber canes, always ensure that the canes are not shared by multiple persons; this increases the risk of spreading infection from one person to the next. Examples of natural fiber canes include; Rattan, Bamboo and Reed canes.

These canes also need to be taken care of to ensure that they do not dry out, become brittle and break. To help them retain moisture, soak them in salt water or steam them regularly. You can also hang them in your bathroom so they soak the steam from your warm bath and hot showers.

  • Synthetic Fiber

These canes look absolutely terrifying and each flick of the wrist produces a sound that is full of the promise of pain. Canes from synthetic fiber are easier to take care of especially since most of them have a non-porous surface. Once you obtain one, always confirm the surface composition and the mode of cleaning. Ideal for those with multiple partners, the cane only requires a quick wash with antibacterial toy cleaner and warm water after each play session. For extra safety, you can always wipe them down with alcohol swabs. Some canes can be washed in the dishwasher, so always check to make sure if your cane is dishwasher friendly or not. Some synthetic fiber canes include; fiberglass, derlin, plastic, carbon fiber and Lucite canes.


Always ensure that you take the time to place an icepack on the affected areas to reduce swelling and ease the painful discomfort. You can always apply aloe vera gel to the areas to increase the speed of the healing process. Always keep your caning sessions infrequent to give the skin time to heal, and also to reduce the risk of your partner developing leather skin due to constant exposure.
