The Razor Strap (Strop)
We never had a woodshed growing up but I remember reading about or seeing them in old movies, where misbehaving kids would get taking to the woodshed for a whuppin’. The implement used was often a leather razor strop, which was common back in the old days as men used it to sharpen their straight edge razors for shaving. I remember the first time I actually came across a razor strap (or razor strop as it is technically called), was in an antique store my Wife and I were perusing through. Intrigued I walked over to it and took it off its hook. The weight of the strap was substantial and while I had never been spanked with one before, I could sure understand the sense of dread, one must’ve had when sent to retrieve it for a spanking.
It was a thick, heavy and dense leather strap, with a strip of cloth on the other side. Looking at the “business end” of the strap you could see how it it would do some damage to an errant behind. Of course I had to have it. At the time I bought it, my Wife and I were doing fun spankings and I thought this would provide for a great scene or role play as well as test my pain threshold. Of course if it got to be too much (which I knew it would), I could use my safeword to end the spanking. In retrospect, if I had known that I would eventually get REAL spankings with it, there is a good chance that I would NOT have bought it!
My Wife was quite pleased with my purchase and took it out of the bag, and admired it on the way home. Lightly smacking it on her hand and telling me how she was going to take me to the woodshed when we got home. It was one of those exciting moments for people who are into fun spankings. I was anxious to get home to get it but a little nervous at the same time.
When we got home, my wife took the strap, looked me in the eye and said, “Five minutes. In five minutes, I’m going to come get you and take you to the woodshed. In the meantime, I want you to sit right in this chair and think about what’s coming.” Oh man, this is it and right off the bat, my sense of dread came on a little stronger. I surfed on my phone for a little bit when she came down the hall. She had pulled her hair up and put glasses on. I wish I had a teacher that looked like this when I was growing up. “Come with me young man.” She stated. So I got up and followed her down the hall to our bedroom. When I got to our room, I saw that she had taken down one of the pictures on the wall and used that hook to hang the razor strap on. Man, it looked quite menacing just hanging there. My Wife noticed me looking at it and went right into stern mode. “Go fetch me the razor strap young man.” she said. I could feel the fear in the pit of my stomach as I approached it. When I took it off its hook, the hook on the strap made a distinct rattle (which I’ve now come to know and fear) and I took the strap over to my Wife. Without saying a word, I timidly handed it to her. She didn’t waste any time. She pointed to the bed and said, “Assume the position.” I walked over to the bed, unbuckled my belt, and pulled down my shorts and underwear. Then I bent over the end of the bed and waited for the spanking to begin.
Learning A Lesson
She walked over to the left side of me and said, “I’m going to teach you a lesson you won’t soon forget.” And with that, she started swinging that strap HARD. The strap landed with a SMACK and I could feel a searing pain where the end of the strap bit into the side of my right butt cheek. I gasped at the pain when the second swat landed…SMACK! And she continued spanking me with it, one right after another. I don’t think I even got to 10 lashes when I blurted out my safeword, “Hold me!” my desperate voice called out. She walked behind me caressing my newly welted backside. “Wow, you only got through 11 lashes. I think I like my new strap.” She calmly mused. I was surprised at how much it hurt and was happy it was over. She was surprised as well as she knows I have a pretty high pain tolerance and have taken some pretty good spankings from her. Anyway…we progressed to a wonderful session of love making with her rubbing her fingers over the welts she gave me, formed by the end of the strap on the side of my butt. It was a spanking to remember but I also remember being grateful that I had a safeword as a way out. I also remember thinking…I couldn’t imagine getting it for real with that thing…
How Times Have Changed
Well, queue time lapse blur and here we are many, many moons later. We’ve evolved into a mutually and consensual agreement where she will give me a real domestic discipline spanking for offenses we’ve both deemed spank-able offenses. While I will get a punishment spanking on occasion (about monthly), I get taken to the “woodshed” about 3 or 4 times a year. Getting taken to the woodshed has become the name for getting THE (or one of the) worst spankings of my life. Our bedroom transforms into “the woodshed” for this type of spanking. And while she used to use just the razor strap, she then changed the protocol to be a belt spanking first (with her meanest belt), immediately followed by a razor strapping. There is no safeword during these spankings (although I imagine if I did say my safeword, she’d probably stop. BUT…that wouldn’t be a real spanking then, would it? 🤔 Besides, I agreed to be held accountable in this way and am man enough to take what she has deemed necessary by way of corporal punishment. Even if it means her reducing me to tears sometimes.)
Then the woodshed whuppin evolved again. It still means getting one of the worst spankings of my life, but now she’s expanded beyond just using the belt and razor strap. Sometimes it is just the belt, sometimes it is a paddle or water soaked cane (one of the worse things ever), and sometimes it is a combination of 2 or 3 of her meanest implements. It just depends on what she feels like using that day or night. But no matter what she decides on using, it still remains a punishment, deterrent and attitude adjustment that will be remembered for a while.
A woodshed whuppin’ can now be up to around 80+ swats/lashes for me. To many, that probably sounds too severe, and to some it might sound like not enough. But I really think that just depends on the the person who is getting spanked and their limits. I DO have a decent ability to take a harsh spanking and she knows my limits very well. She spanks to the point of being effective without stopping too soon. Again, that amount will vary by couple, by implement, and by experience. From a spankee’s perspective…if you’re consenting to a punishment spanking to improve behavior and/or attitude, it SHOULD be something that will be effective and last for a good month or two. I know it does for me.
It only took a couple trips to the woodshed to realize that it is something to avoid if possible. And now, like it did back in the day…just the mention of getting taken to the woodshed, strikes fear into THIS errant behind, as I hopefully straighten up my attitude and behavior before she deems it necessary to take me to the dreaded woodshed.
UPDATED: You now have a chance to witness some of our actual woodshed whuppin’ sessions. It took some convincing for Jess to agree to us taking video of them, and making them available to our readers. But she finally allowed it. For a nominal fee, you can get an instant download of these real life whuppin’s and watch it immediately thereafter, and whenever you want.
There are no warm ups, no fake scenes/bad acting. No long pauses between swats. No rubbing of my butt between swats. They are actual videos of REAL Domestic Discipline spanking. And boy did I learn lessons from each one! In fact, just watching them again makes me want to behave! LOL
Buenos días, mi mujer me azota desde hace muchísimos años, normalmente lo hace en el salón de casa, pero cuando la paliza va a ser más severa me manda a la habitación (Esto sería como la leñera). Cuando me ordena ir a la habitación se me descompone el cuerpo y me tiemblan las piernas, ahí las palizas son muy severas, ella el único instrumento que utiliza son las zapatillas tiene varias, pero todas con suelas de goma. En la la habitación me obliga a desnudarme y empieza la paliza por el trasero ampliando a piernas, brazos espalda etc. Muchos de los zapatillazos los aplica con la parte del talón que son extremamente dolorosos, la última vez que estuve en la habitación, hace aprox, 10 días y aún tengo marcas de la zapatilla por diferentes zonas del cuerpo.
Buenos Dias Nacho and thanks for sharing your experience with us. Yes the woodshed SHOULD strike fear in the hearts of men who have misbehaved. And my husband will also have marks for 2 to 3 weeks after a good woodshed session. Belt spanking bruises usually will be all gone after a couple weeks but some of the cane marks, can last beyond 3 weeks.
Muchas gracias a ti por haber creado esta fantástica página, seguiré contribuyendo, ahora estamos todo el día en casa y ya me ha asegurado que las palizas van a ser más frecuentes
We have a real shed in our backyard where I take my husband for his whuppins after the kids are asleep. That way we don’t have to worry about the noises he makes, lol. Personally, I do not believe a spanking is worthwhile unless the man is really feeling it. I often will use my belt but I also like him to cut and prepare a couple of switches, which I use until they basically disintegrate. The look on his face is classic when he hands me those switches and pulls down his pants.
Hello Antonia and thanks for your comment. I would LOVE to have a real “woodshed” in our backyard. I agree with you 100% about a spanking being really being “felt” in order for it to have the desired effect. I’ve swatted my husbands a few times with my sandal or even my belt but I have gotten only short lived results. But when I take him to the “woodshed”, that is a whuppin’ he’s going to feel for days and have marks from for weeks to come. We only have a synthetic switch that HE actually created. It is the most painful implement in our house. And yes, when I bring it out or tell him to go “fetch me the switch”. The look on his face is priceless. All arrogance leaves his body and he instantly looks defeated and almost ready to cry. He knows what is coming is WICKED and as he’s told me many times before, it is “the most painful thing he’s ever felt.” If you haven’t already, check out the blog post he wrote about it. The Wicked Switch
Hope to hear from you again and happy spanking!
The best thing about punishing my husband is whipping that arrogance right out of his body and knowing he is going to be on his best behavior for at least a week (occasionally as long as a month). It’s amazing how it works: as the marks on his bottom fade, so does his good attitude! Like there is a physiological connection! He knows it, too. As I notice him starting to act up, I may say, “Do you need some new marks on your behind?” And he will often hang down his head and admit, “Yes, Ma’am.” So out to the shed we go!
It’s just like you say in the wonderful essay you wrote to women about the benefits of spanking your husband. Every wife should read that!
Yes! I love your statement, “Like there is a physiological connection!” I have SO experienced this as well. If I give him an attitude adjustment, I’ll get a week or two out of him, but when I take him to the woodshed, I get at the minimum 3 weeks to a month. Thanks for the comment Antonia. Always good to talk to another woman of power.
My wife was working on our property taxes and was “not in the mood!” I purposely bratted trying to earn a spanking by making wise cracks for a few days! Finally she said, “Ok you earned a spanking, but first you will clean the first bathroom using this tiny 4 inch brush to scrub it clean! I’m going shopping with my friends and I’ll bring home supper.” So for the next 4 1/2 hrs (with lunch in between) I meticulously cleaned the bathroom using the tiny scrub brush & it seemed forever to finish! When she finally inspected it, she said “You did a fine job honey.” She kissed me and said “Let’s have supper.” After supper it was time for my spanking. She told me to get completely nude and get in position at the foot of our bed. She came in holding her favorite cane which has a wooden handle for easy gripping. She said sternly, “I promise that you’ll never brat me again!” The first stroke was across my lower thighs, I jumped up and screamed loudly! She said, “GET DOWN and DON’T you DARE move again!” The next 11 strokes were all on my lower thighs. I screamed bloody murder but did not move again. Afterwards as I was on the floor crying aloud, she calmly said, “When you brat me, you will always be caned on your thighs. BTW tomorrow, you will you use the teeny brush again to clean our master bathroom.” She then smiled and said, “I’ll be getting a massage while your cleaning it. Honey you know if you politely ask for a spanking I will usually & gladly accommodate you. But you’ll be very ,very sorry if you EVER brat me for it AGAIN.” I couldn’t wear a bathing suit for 2 weeks because of the marks on my thighs!
If you send me an email privately, I will send a picture of our shed that you can post.
Thank you and I just sent you a private email. 🙂
Not a good idea to “get the belt”. I got it before about age 10 to 12. My mother would say wait until your father gets home. I really didn’t deserve it either. He’d come home from work and we’d go into my parents bedroom. He’s take off his belt and proceed to wack me several times as I saw his face so enraged like he was taking all his aggressiveness out on my rear end, it freakin hurt too. It didn’t do anything but gave me a bad temper. I took it out later on some people by yelling at them or hitting them. I had children later in life and never hit them with a belt, it’s cruel and abusive to me. Don’t do that to your kids please.
Hi Stephen and thanks for your comment. Sorry to hear about your bad experiences getting spanked by your father. Both my husband and I got spanked as kids but fortunately we didn’t have the same type of negative experiences. That said, we started this blog to share a little about our lifestyle as it pertains to domestic discipline between two consenting adults. Hope you have a great day.
dad used the belt on my bare bum too, a heavy leather belt
I was taken to the barn for strappings ,we didnot have a woodshed, pants & shorts taken down or off, butt bare.
Dad used his razor strap or his leather belt , me bent over the saddle stand. MY BUTT WAS OFTEN BARE.
The razor strap is no joke. Knowing how heavy and pliable that leather is the the SMACK it makes when it lands on his bare butt. I don’t envy the strappings you took. I haven’t used the razor strap in awhile. Maybe that will have to change…
my dad used his old razor strap on my bare bum when I was a boy, out in the garage or barn. From 5 to 12 years old. Pants & briefs always down or off. Bum was red with welts
Hi John and thanks for the comments. Yes, the heavy leather straps used for belts and razor straps of yesteryear are not as common these days. Thankfully I have both and use my belt often. Haven’t used the razor strap in a bit. Maybe it is time to get that one out for my husbands next spanking.
I actually work with some of the thickest leather you’ve ever seen in your life on a regular basis. It is 20 to 22 ounce harness leather. To give you an idea of how thick that is, 16 ounce leather is right at 1/4” thick. It is extremely pliable and heavy. I would love to make a good punishment strap or belt for you both for free, just because I enjoy your site so much.
Hi Michael and thank you for the offer and compliment! There is something very luscious about a nice, heavy, pliable leather strap. Joey has had a little bit of a leather fetish as long as I’ve known him. Consequently, I’ve been the beneficiary of nice leather belts and sandals over the years. Having worn and applied various leather straps and implements to his backside, I have fallen in love with leather myself. We’ll send you an email directly to inquire about your offer. Thanks!
Hey Michael, thanks for the kind words and I ~think~ for the strap. LOL. I’ve hated the razor strap (I know it’s “strop”, but she prefers to call it strap, so…), but she pretty much stopped using it because it was a bit hard for her to wield. So she told me that you were going to make a strap like that but with a handle so she could swing it easily. Yeah…thanks buddy. haha. We’ll have to do a post about it. But uh, feel free to take your time! 😉
You’re very welcome for the kind words. I don’t know if The Wicked Queen has told you or not, but my Beloved has requested one of your Wicked Switches as well. With you having said it is the most painful implement in the house, I just might have got the worst end of the deal between the two of us. She said if it works that she will use it often.
As far as straps go, this leather is pretty severe too. It’s definitely “woodshed quality”. Still, your reviews on The Wicked Switch have me slightly concerned.
Hey Michael, yeah she just mentioned about the Wicked Switch. The first time she told me that we should make those to sell on the site, I told her that I didn’t want to do that to my fellow man. LOL. You may have gotten the worst end of the deal but I have to tell you, I’m also fearful of that strap arriving as she’s told me that is what she is taking me to the woodshed with. :\
When my wife’s parents passed my wife and I cleaned up the house starting in the attic! She found her grandpa’s very thick leather razor strop! My wife added it to her arsenal for blistering my bottom! Her father had told her a punishment spanking with his dad’s strap was a nightmare of pain! So a week later i was over the hassock with my nude bottom for a punishment spanking! She was practicing on the bed and decided to use the hassock for more of a downward swing which she also practiced on because the strop was very heavy! She was really pissed because I had ignored and embarrassed her at the supermarket! I was supposed to get only 20 swats but I moved & screeched in pain too loudly, soo she gave me ten more and warned me that if I moved again, I’ll get ten more! I cried like a baby after each horrific swat but I didn’t move! My tenderized bottom lasted 7 days! My wife said, “The razor strop is her favorite tool for punishment spankings followed by the wooden bath brush.
Hello, I read your profile on Fetlife and found this site. I just love to read about belt spankings and have many written stories on them. I am still exploring your site but I like what I see.
Hi Ed and thank you for your comment. Glad you found our site. 🙂
I am very happy about your site too! Thank you!
that sounds scary and effective. If you are given a good strapping, say a dozen good spanks or more, how long before the pain and bruising are gone?
Hi Rachel and thanks for your comment and question. You’re right…A trip to the woodshed has become what it was supposed to become…a scary and effective deterrent. 🙂 Sometimes just the mention of a potential trip to the woodshed is enough to set me straight! LOL. So these days a woodshed whuppin’ will generally consist of somewhere in the range of 70 to 80 swats. Unless she breaks out the Wicked Switch. 40 good lashes with that could be deemed a woodshed whuppin’. After a trip to the woodshed, I’ll have some bruises for about a week afterwards and if I got any lashes with the cane or switch, I’ll have marks from those for 3+ weeks. And I’ll have an improved attitude and disposition for a month or two! 🙂
Thanks, Joey. Definitely would have the same effect on me (she says, squirming in her chair!). I actually write spanking fiction once in a while as a hobby. I am working on a story set in a fictional modern country whose prison system has adopted the use of judicial CP. In this one story, after 4 new arrivals are given the “Welcome to Prison” speech,they meet Wendy, who tried to escape. She is then fastened to a bench and given 50 swats with a leather strap. I like to make my stories realistic sounding so thanks for letting me know roughly how long the bruises would last!
Hi Rachel and np! Do you have any of your work online? We’d love to check it out. And that story sounds very intriguing! Would love to read it when you’re done. Maybe even do a review on it if you’d like. We’re approaching 10k visitors per month and it sounds like the type of material our readers would like. Also, have you seen some of the punishment straps that were once used in prison reform? They are heavy duty. I had seen a video of a spanking from a heavy duty punishment strap and was going to send you the link but it has since been removed. If I find something like it, I’ll post it here or email it to you directly. Have a great week and thanks for your comments!
I once earned a 2nd spanking the next day after a punishment spanking & it was excruciatingly painful because it’s on an already swollen tenderized bottom! J shows no mercy and swings away! She said, “You‘re supposed learn to behave from my spankings Duh!”
Wish she spank me to tears
Sorry Paul, I only spank my husband. 🙂 But maybe you can find someone to spank you in your area, searching here. Good luck to you!
I will be getting my very first whipping ever tonight with an old fashioned razor strop 24″ long 2.5″ wide two strips of genuine Russian leather bound together. The two strips of leather are a total of a 1/4″ thick I am very nervous, I will be spanked before hand and the receive 40 strokes on my underpants and then 60 on the bare bottom. Can anyone tell me what it is like?
Wow, starting off in the deep end I see. At least you’re getting the first lashes with your underpants on. That helps a little. But yeah, if swung hard enough, the remaining 60 will be rough. The two worse things about a razor strapping, are 1) It can be a little Un-wieldy and turn on the down stroke, giving a heavy “edge” swat. Those can buckle your knees. 2) When the end of the strap, kind of sort of wraps around the butt and catches just the side of your butt…OUCH! Those hurt like hell and leave marks that will last for weeks. Good luck man!
It is good and invigorating. Try getting the strap applied to the hands. That is a turn on for me. Graham
Wish she spank me
I so need this is in my life and am willing to travel for it or even move if it would be a permanent situation
Hi Paul, try looking here for a spanking near you! It should be able to help you find someone in your area to give you the spanking you need. 😉
I haven’t ever ben spanked in a woodshed but I definitely want to be.
I do like the whole nostalgic thing about taking Joey to “the woodshed”. We’re going to have to find a real one to make that happen one of these days! 😉
I was standing in the corner whimpering from a punishment caning given by my wife! The welts were very prominent! My S-I-L just happened to visit, & the door was open so she simply walked in……to my embarrassment! She then walks over to my corner & starts chuckling and counted the welts on my bottom and says: Wow! “30” strokes, 3 of which landed on your thighs? You must have moved too much! You must have been a really bad boy D! Those marks will last for days lol!”
Yes, the cane and wicked switch, will leave marks on Joey for weeks.
I would love for my wife to use me like that.
Have you ever talked to her about exploring it?
Hi Bruce here and I’ve been alone for quite some time now. I’m in search of a submissive woman who would like to enter into a devoted spanking relationship. Spanking a woman turns me on emencly and the lovemaking afterwards would be very intense and extremely passionate.
Hi Bruce! Nice to hear from someone on the other side of what we do. That is M/f vs F/m. We’re obviously fans of the DD lifestyle and hope you find that special someone!
Hi, I’m currently in a m-m relationship with spankings used as bad behavior corrections and my dominant partner George is a constant reader of the comments made here. He also is a user of all the spanking techniques described here, so I feel like I am a veteran receiver of many spankings applied to my bare behind with strap and paddle and twice the ‘dreaded” cane. Sorry, I don’t know which kind of cane it was, but I do know IT REALLY HURT! That was almost a year ago and I still remember it clearly. Most of the time I am over his lap, my behind is bare and a large wooden brush applied to me until I really cry. He still threatens me with the cane but so far, thank goodness, hasn’t used it.
Hi Roy and thanks for your comment and insight. Glad you found us! Yes, the cane (or most rods for that matter), can be quite vicious. Fortunately for Joey, I only use it occasionally.
Hello mistress Wicked Queen and thanks for your comments. My partner George has become more strict about my attitudes toward household chores and toward him and some of his friends. The other day he spanked me in punishment mode with his new wooden paddle on my bare behind with 12 hard strokes, or a Dirty Dozen as he called them, because I was rude to one of his friends. Since our m-m relationship requires spankings immediately for errant behavior, and follow-up spankings later, I went over his friends lap as an apology, after George finished off the 12 strokes, and was paddled with additional strokes from the friend. I don’t remember how many additional I got. I love George and appreciate his concern for my behavior, and I usually know when I’ve done wrong and embarrassed him, and I’m really glad for his loving correction.
It’s now Sunday morning and my preventive (or maintenance) spanking is due this afternoon. I’ve been well behaved all week so I’m not expecting any extra strokes unless of course I move out of position. We had discussed maintenance spankings and decided to use them instead of relying on severe punishment spanking. He is also adding a slight change this afternoon to my maintie-spank where he is having a female friend Gloria, apply her own spanking strap also known as a Tawse to me. Of course my bottom will still be completely bare and ready for at least 25 strokes. I know her very well and love her almost as much as George but I’m hoping her application of the tawse to my bare rearend will be easier to take. I’ve never been spanked with a tawse so I’m not really sure what to expect.
I just experienced a long, hard wodshed-type spanking on the bare skin of my rear end, all because I wrote a critical post to mistress Wicked Queen. I asked to maybe have more of those gif illustrations on her site. George said I was being disrespectful. He applied at least 20 strokes of the wooden paddle and I had to count and thank him for each one of the strokes. I am so sorry that I offended you. I’m sure I will remember this punishment for many days. I write this while kneeling because I can’t as yet sit down.
