Bastinado – Barefoot Spanking

Bastinado is a medieval torture-punishment that was widely used both in the east and in the west. A rather massive weapon was used, one strike of which was enough to inflict irreparable injuries. In BDSM, the basic elements of the bastinado are preserved, but torture has become a delight.

Bastinado for Beginners

Bastinado itself is a whipping, but not in its classical sense. Blows are applied to bare feet. Therefore, a couple will need preliminary training, and it’s worth starting with choosing the right pose. The easiest option: the bottom one is placed on the stomach, and the feet are raised on a separate stand or crossbar. Also, this stand can have a soft upholstery in a place where the legs are fixed, but a reliable base to create good support during the practice. It is desirable to fix not only the legs but the rest of the body as well, in order to avoid additional injuries.

An option for the advanced involves both suspensions and other fixtures, which were also often used during medieval torture. But do not try them at the very beginning, it is better to leave it for later.

For whipping, it is recommended to use short whips and onetails, canes, stacks with flappers. Various floggers and cats can also be used. But paddles, thick batons covered with skin will not work – with these devices it is easy to injure a fragile foot and cause serious injury. It is also recommended to additionally protect the toes and heels, covering them with soft pads so that the blows are delivered exclusively on the foot.

Bastinado As S/M and D/S Practice

Despite the obvious painful overtones, bastinado can also be used in D/S pairs. A painful punishment is only a part of the lesson: receiving a certain number of blows or by a certain type of whipping device will give unusual sensations. But if you add an order to count blows, read poems, answer questions, maintain clarity of mind and concentrate on flogging becomes quite difficult.

But the D/S part of the punishment comes after the fact, since the first time after the whipping itself is almost impossible to walk – you have to crawl or move only on your knees. This shows the humiliation and subordinate position of the bottom, which is completely deprived of the opportunity to even move normally.

The main rule of bastinado – don’t harm. The fragility of the foot suggests that the blows will be applied carefully. Experienced thematics recommend getting acquainted with reflexology in order to find out where the most sensitive exits of nerve endings are located and not to damage them during whipping.

Enjoy safely!
