    The Slipper.

    The Slipper

    In recent years in the spanking scene there has been an upsurge in the interest in the art of slippering. As sad as this may seem I remember when I use to scan spanking magazines, library books for even the slight mention of the slipper and if I came across any photo evidence I always thought I had died and gone to heaven.
    The slipper was probably the most common implement used for disciplining in the English Home in the sixties & seventies, where as in America it seemed to be the paddle. Unfortunately for us slipper lovers this has always been sadly over looked as a little bit to mabby pabby and for its lack of effectiveness by the spanking world. There is of course no doubt that there are far more severe implements of chastisement such as the Cane, Tawse, Birch Rod, Cat of Nine Tails all of which can cause great pain and will draw blood for the most blatant of sadist and masochists but the slipper does have some bearing in this little world of ours.
    I have tried for many years to realise why it is I have been drawn to the slipper as a punishment implement and I have come up with a few possible reasons as to why.

    Colour
    Now this one might sound a little girlie like, but as a youngster and I think this may possibly be the same with a lot of youngsters I was drawn into bright colours. My favourite colour was always red where as most boys favoured the colour blue. Now the ladies slipper back in those days seemed to have lots of pretty flowers on them and fluffy bit of fur on the top. Whilst I was firmly over the knee of whose ever knee I happened to be over at the time I remember the image of the carpet two feet one with a slipper on and the other with a slipper off. In a peculiar way I suppose this helped remind me of what I was being spanked with. You could hear the smacking sounds whilst looking at the fabric of the slippers being used on me. This might be a reason for a foot fetish as well

    Style
    Along with the colour of the slipper another feature is the style of the slipper. There are the following

    1. Open Toed mules- Sometimes plain cotton towelling fabric, sometimes with fur on top
    2. Closed Toed mules- Sometimes that look more like clogs
    3. Fully Enclosed-My favourite the old granny type with flowers on fur rimmed.

    Then of course there are the slippers that are not actually slippers but are still used for slippering such as

    1 Plimsols- Used a lot in schools, black pumps, Dunlop green flash, white lace ups.
    2 Sandal- worn out doors normally slip on type
    3 Flip Flops- stingy when wet
    4 Shoes- with flexible soles


    Soles
    1 Rubber
    2 Hard plastic
    3 Leather

    Sting
    Well being a late developer somewhat and with most of the spankings I received in my lifetime being playful, I was never really spanked that hard with a slipper until I was in my mid 20s courtesy of "Aunt Jennifer" Bless. (That lady deserves an essay of her own). The slipper has a sting of its own which is quiet something unique yet hard to describe, having said that one must make the attempt. Where as the cane seems to bite then spread the sting of the slipper seems to just be there from the offset of landing. Over a period of time the bottom reddens and the after effect of a sound slipper spanking are out of this world as longs you can take the pain in the first place. I remember visiting "Aunt Jennifer" in 1996 and for the next 3 days after I felt on a complete high. I think the best after effects from a slippering I have had are when I been in a situation where I have not had a lot of choice except to just grit my teeth and take it.

    I hate to be pedantic here, but according to a study done by John and Elizabeth Newson (published pelican books circa 1968ish for Nottingham University) the commonest form of household "implement" at that time was the strap, followed by cane or stick with slippers earning barely an honourable mention.

    For some reason it has gained symbolic importance. I would suggest because of comics such as the Dandy or Beano where the hero often received a slippering, and that I suggest was because the slipper looked less "threatening" than a strap.(we are after all talking about comics supposed to be funny!)

    Spanked with a slipper

    I had a spanking with leather soled carpet slipper once and like NaughtyFreddie says they can really hurt!
    It was a long burning sensation and very noisy too, but then again so was I!.
    My bottom was bright red and very sore for ages afterwards.
    Ive also had a plimsoll but that bruised a bit and was heavier so not quite the same.
    Not sure how popular a good carpet slipper is now but i'd expect most serious doms/dommes would have one.

    Hugs

    carpet slippers usually had sorbo-rubber soles (at least in the 50's 60's, 70's era). You could whack away for hours (or be whacked for hours) and if you REALLY concentrated you could feel something....Plenty of sound..zero fury..

    A leather-soled slipper..I would agree with you emma..plenty of sting with little damage..

    Rolled up newspapers were/are also good for plenty of noisy action with minimal actual effect..great for fun-spankings

    I disagree with "John and lizzy Newson

    Roddy

    I don’t for a moment think you are being pedantic by bringing forward information of the study done by “John and Elizabeth Newson” in 1968 (God I wonder what they use to do in their bedroom of a nightime?). It is possibly right that the slipper was not the most common of impliments used before the 70s . The award for the most common impliment would have possibly going to the big bad strap especially I would have thought in the 40s or before when slippers didn’t even exist. However when I was a little boy not so long ago (Last week sometime) it seemed to be very common in Richmond Surrey.
    I would like to add to my piece by saying it seems a lot of people seem to view the slipper as a complete joke , hence its lack of coverage up until now in the spanking world. I can see peoples points of view on why the slipper is deemed ineffective but for some it is a phallic Symbol and. Possibly a foot fetish , mixed with a spanking fetish , mixed with (ROLEPLAY).
    I for one have never seen the art of spanking as a competition to see how much pain one can take . You can call me a coward but Ill put my hands right up in the air now and readily admit if I entered a competition such as that I would come last or further more be disqualified for sticking a book down my trousers like “Roger the Dodger”.
    Has anybody ever wondered that D.C, Comics have a lot to answer for?

    I don't like Dr Rubbersole......... he stings

    I always knew I had the option to be silent, I just never realised I had the ability.

    Nice post Freddie..and keep up the good work at Yahoo!

    The 'slipper' is the most overlooked spanking implement out there... and this is difficult to explain as it was the impelment of choice during the late 70's and 80's on the domestic/scholastic front. My own bottom will testify to that!!

    So why this low profile? I guess there's a number of reasons, but the cane does have an aura, culture and reputation surrounding it which makes it special to spanking folk.

    It's a hugely dramatic instrument in appearance and in effect! The cane is 'the ultimate' - steeped in history and still very scary even for adults!!

    For more erotic/consensual discipline the hand seems to appeal to folks far more than the slipper....it does not hurt as much and can be very sensual indeed.

    This leaves the humble slipper in a sort of spanking 'No Man's Land' - not severe enough to command the awe/admiration reserved for the cane and not as initimate/loving as a hand-spanking. Even the tawse has stronger emmotional links for people...with it's strong Scottish heritage and evil sting.

    Then there's the confusing issue of describing 'the slipper' - is it the gym shoe PE teachers wielded, the old beach sandal Mum and Dad used, or the bedroom slipper favoured by boarding school Matrons? Getting the slipper so often seems to mean a far more generic term for 'getting the shoe'.

    Personally, I am a big fan of the slipper (giving not receiving!) because it was the last widely used spanking implement and therefore has that essential touch of authenticity. Sadly, this seems to be a minority/specialist taste amongst spankers.

    Agree rattan

    The slipper is the weapon of choice in our houshold , always available in the bedroom and when we are downstairs the look on her face when told to "get the slipper" is a sight to behold .

    Oh, to be slippered!

    Apart from when I was soundly spanked by The Virginian - cos they didn't have plaid carpet slippers in Wyoming in the 1880s), most of my early fantasies involved being slippered.

    Does anyone know where you can find an old fashioned carpet slipper that DOESN'T have a hard plastic sole these days?

    Oh for the nice soft foamy rubber soles of yesteryear........I don't care that it doesnt really pack much of a punch, it's the whole psychological thing of being put otk for a sound slippering that pushes my buttons!

    Cheeky brat- "Does anyone know where you can find an old fashioned carpet slipper that DOESN'T have a hard plastic sole these days?"

    ....Rattan - yes indeed, on the end of my foot missy

    Nicely put Cheeky - good to hear that Nig, Freddie, Cheeky brat and myself are not completely alone on this little subject.

    I've got this funny feeling that slippering might be a bit of a southern England/home counties spanking thing..but hope to be proved wrong

    As a fellow slippering enthusiast, I ought to add my tupence worth...

    I was a 70s/80s child and the slipper did seem to be the implement of choice among friend's parents. It also made an appearance at school too. And, as mentioned, it was featured weekly in The Beano.

    The cane is an implement that should be reserved for when it is really deserved. But what then can one use between a hand spanking and a caning. The paddle and strap, I would argue, are not too far off the cane for pain and marks.

    The good old slipper however gives a good sting without being unbearable, leaves nice red marks which fade - not weals, and makes a good sound to.

    It can also be left around discreetly (or worn!) without attracting attention, whereas one has to hide one's canes and tawses before any visitors arrive.

    I've delivered a few good slipperings in my time and it has a lovely effect in my view. A slipper is also handy for those rare times that my hand starts to wear before the spankees bottom.

    Just my tupence worth...

    Don't understand

    I honestly do not understand this infatuation for being struck with a slipper.

    Lord Wolfen did that once to me and both of us nearly died laughing - and that also brought tears to botb our eyes. - But I guess thatis beside the point - perhaps your slippers are made sturdier?? All we really got was a funny fwumpy sound and it felt like being spanked with .... well... a slipper is the only thing that comes to mind.

    But there was definitely no sting - nothing. Maybe like a rolled up sales flyer would be a good description. Flimsy.

    mmm but wish i didnt! As i said earlier in this thread I had a very sound spanking with an old fashioned leather sole carpet slipper and it was damm noisy (so was i!) and stung like mad! My bottom was unusually very bright red for ages afterwards too! So yes for me, a sound spanking with one of those was as painful as a a caning
    Those gentlemans outfitters type shops (where all the boring traditional old men go...sorry sirs (emma makes a quick dash for the door !!!), sell them i was told afterwards when i asked 'what was that'!

    Well Freddie you seem to have found quite a few of us who respect the slipper.

    I went to a grammar school in Yorkshire in the 60s. There the cane was used as a final deterrent but could only be given by the headmaster. In my 7 years there I can only remember it being used on perhaps a handful of occasions.

    The "slipper", however, was often employed to discipline naughty schoolboys (the girls were exempt from corporal punishment at my school). Teachers and prefects were allowed to slipper and frequently did.
    I always assumed that "the slipper" was a disused plimsoll with a smooth, well worn rubber sole because that's what was used in my school. I read here with interest about the multitude of shoe-like implements that come under the generic term "slipper".

    I can testify that a size 11 slipper of the type used at my school can induce a breathtaking sting if applied vigourously to a bare bottom! It always seemed to be a size 11 although I've never known anyone who takes a size 11 shoe and suspect that worn size 11s were sold for the sole purpose of being used to punish naughty bottoms.

    All in all I prefer the cane to the slipper but suffering as I do from extended periods of no spanking as a result of living abroad I would doubtless benefit and enjoy the occasional slippering and lets be honest, it's just as authentic a school punishment as caning or strapping.

    Kind regards

    The Slipper..... School plimsol

    Having used the plimsol on a number of young ladies bottoms as well as in more traditional settings i can tell you it is both effective and in some cases a pre-requisite to caning.
    It can produce remarkable tread marks as well a characteristic outline on the bottom, which like the cane, leave the miscreant in no doubt that they have been naughty enough to get its attention. It can bruise from anything up to 2 to 3 days and has a lasting effect both physically and psychologically.
    I believe some of the people postiing on this subject have had direct experience of being slippered by me. Does crushed cigarettes ring any bells LOL. (naughtynicki)


    Those attending the 'school' certainly will certainly develop a lot of respect for the school plimsol, as well as a certain amount of pleasure from its lasting effects.

    The "slipper" an old plimsol was still used at my school at the end of the sixties & early seventies, usually 3 or 4 whacks for mainly minor offences or as an offered alternative to detention. I received it on a number of occaisions and was never bothered by it. One teacher used to have a piece of rubber gas pipe coiled up in his pocket, now that could sting. Another used a metre rule. The cane was rarely used in my time, but the housemaster's & headmaster did occaisionaly use it. I was never caned untill long after I left school!

    When I was at school (75-81)the cane was the official method, with the slipper the unoffical choice favoured by many teachers, avoiding an entry in the punishment book

    slipperings

    The slipper is not popular with subs because it can produce deep bruising that shows up the next day.

    But they sometimes sacrifice all for their art!

    The slipper is my favorite disciplinary tool to.
    I found mine, an old black slip on plimsoll with a sole that has worn smooth a few years ago when I was in the antiques trade
    we purchased a job lot of desks and in one was this slipper with the words Mrs Benson tippexed on the side we made a few jokes about it and put it in the bin needless to say it was soon rescued
    by yours truly and I have used it ever since, I often wonder who mrs Benson was anyone have a teacher by that name in Bedfordshire?
    I have one middle aged lady who visits me will only ever take the slipper she turns up dressed as a modern schoolgirl, tie blouse, black trousers, she hands me a note with some made up misdemenour for which I have to scold her and then tell her to touch her toes then I slipper her six times and then send her from the room. Apparently when at school she was summoned to her headmasters study ticked off then was told she was to be slippered she bent over her headmaster tapped the slipper on her bottom and for some reason changed his mind and told her to leave perhaps he just wanted to frighten her this was the closest she ever came to a slippering at school so this obviously
    had some effect on her as my slipper does now!!!
    if any other girls would like to sample an authentic School slipper drop me a line :

    I know that amongst my friends growing up in the north west during the late 60s and 70s slippers were extremly popular as spanking implements I was often on the recieving end at home or school hence the name. A plimsole is certainly capable of giving a serious spanking especially when the spankee is touching their toes allowing a much better swing and "follow through".

    'Slipper' seems to be a generic term but there is a huge difference between a rubber soled plimsole and the soft foam rubber you get on indoor or carpet slippers. You couldn't break an egg with the latter but a plimsole, as used in schools well into the 1970's is a serious instrument of punishment.

    I think it is a bit overlooked because it was used frequently in schools and was not considered as seriously as the cane. Therefore although canings may have been recorded because they were administered by the Head, I am certain most teachers had a slipper which they used wih impunity and without record.

    Got to admit I love to use the slipper ie plimsole. It's the smell of the rubber, the sound as it strikes and the very visible effect it has.

    Good thread. The slipper has always been my favourite implement, (after the hand), and I can assure anyone who thinks it's a 'soft' option that they have not had a real 'slippering'.

    I've a variety of slippers, but my all time favourite is a size 10 M & S carpet slipper with a very well worn, heavy, man made sole. Its a brute. It gained the nickname of 'the enforcer' when it was used to maintain order at parties many years ago. It's also featured in a few vids (see attached pic).

    My partner absolutely hates it and I therfore very rarely use it these days, she would rather be caned than get this slipper, so we have a nice lightweight 'girlie' slipper which you can really let rip with.

    I blame the Beano entirely for my love of the slipper, although school in the 50's and 60's played a part. I agree it was used very frequently in impromtu class situations which would not have been recorded. I think the stats. are wrong, the slipper was without doubt the most oft used implement, I would guess at a ratio of 20 to 30 slipperings to one caning. Scotland I understand used only the strap/tawse but given the difference in population density, the slipper would still have been way ahead of the pack.

    I think we should start a campaign for the revival of the slipper to take its rightful place in British CP.

    The main virtues of this implement are:-

    1) Accuracy - you simply cannot miss.
    2) Thanks to (1) above, the slipperer has the confidence to take a really good backswing and power right through the taget area making it one of the most effective and efficient ways to warm up a bottom.
    3) It has very good penetrating powers through clothing (the main reason I suspect that it was so popular with schoolteachers).
    4) Used 'on the bare' it leaves an unmistakable imprint.
    5) Serious users can take a 3 step run up and be sure they will still be accurate.
    6) It can be used OTK for those who enjoy feeling the recipient squirm, or just to be more intimate.
    7) It can be left lying around without attracting undue attention.
    8) For all of us who went to school in England up till the end of the 70's it holds a special significance.
    9) Minnie the MInx and Dennis the Menace got it all the time.

    Depends on which school you went to I think GDSM......certainly it was never used in my prep-school (english).

    Individual experiences colour one's views in this matter I find. But i think you are right about the Beano/Dandy influence..

    Some great memories and comments guys and girls...well done to Freddie for putting the slipper back in the headlines.

    I am probably wrong, but it seems that 'getting the slipper' for most Brits usually means getting the gym shoe or the much-loved black plimsoll...rather than the slippers we actually wear at home!

    ...all a wee bit confusing and it possibly explains why the rest of the world continues to view us as an eccentric island race.

    But somehow 'a good bare bottom slippering' sounds so much better/exciting/resonant than 'a whack with an old training shoe.'

    I was unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of several slipperings with a Dunlop Greenflash Size 11.....I still continue to wince and ruefully rub my bottom when I visit a sports shop or see a set of Dunlop tyres.
