One of the most storied spanking implements is the infamous hairbrush. And while I have swatted Joey with several of my hairbrushes, I’ve found that none of them are very good for spanking. So I would use one of our bathbrushes or shower brushes instead. Anyway, later during our travels through spanking-land, I read about what is supposed to be THE king of spanking hairbrushes. The Mason Pearson Hairbrush.
I looked it up on Amazon and found the Large model, but WOW…that price! $375!
Now technically we CAN afford it, but…I just can’t bring myself to buy a hairbrush for $375. For the most part, I’m still a mostly practical midwestern girl at heart. 😊 Besides, I know there has to be a good (or perhaps) better equivalent out there, but I just haven’t looked too hard for one. I have effective spanking implements aplenty!
Anyway, I digress. So…according to many in the spanking world, this kind of hairbrush, can bring an intense kind of sting. Perhaps akin to a good paddle. It makes sense to me as this large one pictured above measures 9″ long, by 3″ wide, and weighs almost half a pound. That is a pretty dense butt wrecker right there.
But when did the first hairbrush tan an errant backside? Well, while there were certainly homemade versions of brushes for the hair, it was William Kent who became the first hairbrush manufacturer back in 1777 in Great Britain. The company Kent Brushes is still making brushes today!
In the U.S. Hugh Rock was the first to patent a hairbrush in 1854. Without going down the rabbit’s hole on history of brushes, my key finding as it relates to this post, is that it would make sense to me for spankings with hairbrushes, gained traction, very shortly after hairbrushes hit the market.
If only these hairbrush manufacturers knew that one day we’d be talking about them on our spanking blog, along with their “other” now infamous use!
Keep in mind that back at that time, it was VERY common for all parents to spank their kids when they misbehaved. So it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine a child fidgeting or talking back while getting their hair brushed, and for the mother to spank their butt with it to settle them down.
After the apparent reaction and effectiveness, it became a staple in discipline at that time. Now days, there are a plethora of hairbrushes to chose from, but as I’ve stated, most of the common ones found in stores are not that effective for spanking. Well, at least where my husband is concerned. But, I may go back on the hunt for another similar hairbrush to the Mason Pearson, and see how that works out. To be continued…
So…assuming that you have or find a good hairbrush for spanking your spouse, there are some great benefits.
Incognito – Like a belt or sandal, this is an implement that can be left around the house. And if your significant other has been spanked with it before…just the sight of it, will likely cause him/her to pause as they ponder their next steps. When traveling, it is a small enough and common item to have in your carry-on.
Good for OTK – While I’ve expressed that Over-the-Knee isn’t my favorite position, we’ve found that many of our readers like to hear about, give or receive a good OTK spanking. This is a perfect implement for those OTK spankings!
Ok, moving on to bathbrushes and shower brushes…I’m lumping these as one in the same as they are closely related. I’ve seen some bathbrushes that were longer than shower brushes and vice versa. But the one thing they both have in common is they are generally longer than a hairbrush.
But these too come in all different shapes and sizes and now it is a little trickier to find a good one for spanking, as many of the plastic ones have too much of an angle at the head of the brush, to help accommodate reaching the back during a bath or shower.
I had one of the best shower brushes for spanking Joey a long time ago. It was a plastic purple one, and the head of it had open slots in between the rows of bristles. OH did it get a reaction from him. He despised that thing and often told me that it was the worst thing to get spanked by. (Note – this was before the Wicked Switch existed). Sadly…one day while spanking him with it, it broke. 🙁 Of course I immediately told him to find me another one just like it. But he shared with me that he couldn’t find one like it anymore. Over the next year or two, I would look as well but to no avail. The dreaded purple shower brush was a thing of the past. Joey certainly hasn’t lost any sleep over it. 😅
Even though I have a couple bath/shower brushes now, they are made from wood. Now granted, they WILL and have taught Joey some valuable lessons over the years, but I know from experience that plastic stings worse and I one day I WILL find the right one, do you worry Joseph. In the meantime, I will have to rely on my wooden bath/shower brushes. I’m holding the first bath brush we got a long time ago. It is also one of the implements spanking Joey’s bottom in the video, Spanking Machine Spanks Joey.
Bottom line…I think all spanking households should have at least one if not two spanking brushes. Until next time!
