Cane

I absolutely love being spanked. Now I'm pretty much a newbie but I love pretty much any paddle or whip. I'm curious about canes now though. I've heard that they are extremely painful but I would still love to try it out. What's a good beginner cane? And what are your experiences in using one?

i've bottomed to canes quite a bit. Even the lightest canes are NOT beginner toys. It is quite possible to do serious, unintended injury with a cane. i think the important thing is to work with a Top who knows how to handle them, knows where on the body it's safe to hit, and knows that they can be used harshly or lightly and that the tip will make the most impact. Even if you initially hit with the middle of the cane, the tip will whip down and make the most painful and strongest impact. It's the tips of the canes that leave the pretty marks. Make sure you do TONS of warm up, either with light taps with the cane or canes or with hand spanking or lighter toys. You WILL have marks after a caning, you may even bleed, and it WILL hurt the next day, unless it's a very light caning, so make sure you expect and are prepared for that. Canes are very, very intense impact toys! They hurt, but it's a good hurt, at least to me. One of the things i love about canes is that the impact of the cane isn't the most painful part, it's a few seconds after when the pain blossoms. To me, it's very sensual and a very pleasurable type of pain, but i'm a masochist, so there's that! Plus, i love marks that linger to look at and to feel to remind me of the session. Most Tops will ask their bottom to count strokes, giving them a set number to expect which helps process the pain and intensity. Thicker canes will feel thuddier, leave deeper bruising, but have the higher potential of injuries if wielded incorrectly. Thinner canes will be whippier (depending on the material) since usually they will be less rigid than a thicker one. Thinner canes will leave less deep bruising but be a lot stingier and the tips will be more vicious, and more likely to whip around and hit undesired targets if the user isn't skilled and conscious of them. The more flexible the cane is, the more the tip will whip down. Shorter canes can be difficult to control and manipulate, but longer canes are, again, whippier and the tips will snap more. Which cane to use depends greatly on the skill of your Top and the sensation desired. Do your homework and don't play with canes with an inexperienced Top without seeking out some instruction, hands-on instruction. Also, be extremely conscious if blood is drawn during caning. Many canes are porous and not able to be sanitized. A lot of natural materials like rattan make the best canes. If blood is drawn with a porous cane, or if the cane comes into contact with other bodily fluids, that cane can never be used on another person. (It's fine to reuse on the same person, though.) If you are playing with someone who owns a collection of canes, make sure they are either non-porous and sanitized or that the cane or canes they will use on you have never drawn blood before. A conscientious, safe Top will give a cane that draws blood to the person that it drew blood of. If you need to find a caning expert, seek out your local kink community, or connect with local groups on fetlife.com and ask around for someone who will help you with canes. Most people are more than happy to share their expertise. Good luck!

I think above is great advice. You can typically find a rattan cane for pretty darn cheap. So if you are interested I would say pick one up and then go very slow. Test is out very lightly. Applying slightly more oomph till you get it to where you want. Read up on it lots too.

Have you been able to play with canes yet?
I had a caning lesson with an expert not long ago who suggested practicing canes with some white powder (baby powder, baking soda, etc) on a dark pillow. The puff of powder and the designs left in the powder on the pillow can help the wielder gauge how hard they are hitting and see the effect of the tips like I was talking about, as well as getting an idea of how the cane will mark. Another important thing to remember when caning is that crossing your cane strokes, "crossing tracks" as it's called, is a big no-no. Don't re-hit a spot that has already been hit and don't make X's with your strokes causing the marks to cross one another. Doing so can cause serious broken blood vessels and permanent tissue damage and scarring. I've heard and read of bottoms marked this way that have permanent visible indentations. Like I said, only play with an experienced top, or with the guidance and instruction of an expert.
