Caning is corporal punishment with a cane, generally on the buttocks, palm or the soles of the feet. It was a common punishment throughout Europe and North America for many centuries, but has now been banned in most countries.

A cane is a long stick, generally of bamboo, malacca (rattan), or some similar plant, used as a walking stick; as a support for growing plants; for marking out a piece of ground; or as a material for consturcting furniture or buildings. Rattan canes are used to beat the buttocks or palm as a form of corporal punishment.

Caning was practiced as a judicial punishment for juveniles but was best known as a method of discipline in schools. Use of the cane was standard in English schools of all descriptions throughout the 19th and most of the 20th centuries, with the frequency and severity of canings determined by the traditions of the school. Judicial caning, carried out with a long rattan rod, was a feature of some colonial judicial systems.

Now caning is the SM technique of consensually striking someone (most commonly on the buttocks) with a cane for mutual erotic pleasure. Care should be taken to observe all appropriate safety precautions. In the context of this document, the “bottom” is the person receiving the caning, and the “top” is the person issuing the caning.

Some Caning Hints:

Look for a cane that is straight and smooth. It should either be cut so there are no knuckles or they should have been sanded down. It should be flexible – not too stiff and not uncontrollable. Never make the mistake of buying bamboo from a garden center as it is completely unsuitable for beating soft tissue as it is inflexible, it splits and splinters easily and can cut the skin.

To keep canes healthy, once a year one should sand the tip, stand the cane in a vase of water overnight, and then revarnish the tip. Canes are usually sanded to remove some or all of the bark and to smooth the joints. Unsealed, such a cane soaks up bodily fluids like a sponge so its use should be restricted to light play or limited to one particular bottom. Sealing a sanded cane with repeated light coatings of shellac, varnish, or polyurethane prevents it from soaking up bodily fluids. Canes should be stood upright with their business ends in an inch of water and left standing overnight every few months. The fibers will draw in the water, keeping the ends from drying out and splitting.

Canes should be able to bend significantly.

One should be able to bring the cane down in a straight line.

The cane should have three or more coats of varnish.

Small diameter = sharp pain. Large diameter = thud.

There are two different techniques to caning someone. Firstly with a ‘wrist only’ movement and secondly, with an ‘arm and wrist’ movement. Another caning technique is that of ‘bastinado’ – a rapid continuous drumming of the skin often used for punishing the feet.

The bottom experiences two sensations with every stroke (nerves being compressed and then expanding). Thus, the strokes shouldn’t go too fast.

Be sure the room isn’t too cold.

Bottom should relax muscles in butt to avoid later lactic acid buildup causing a deep ache.

It is difficult if not imposssible to kill any Hepatitis pathogens on canes.

Extra Zinc helps bruises heal.

Avoid striking the tailbone and the back of the knee.

Front of thighs can be caned.

The fold between the buttocks and thighs is termed the “sulcus,” and can be quite painful when struck.

A circular “fluffing” motion can be effective for rapid “warm-up” strokes.

Backhanded strokes often land harder.

Hitting and holding delays the second stage of pain.

After striking the bottom you can either follow through with a stroke that leaves the cane
firmly planted on the buttocks or allow the cane to bounce back and lift away from the area. Following through will make the stroke more painful and ‘thumpy’, this is because you are passing on all the kinetic energy of the stroke into the buttocks. While lifting off does not dump as much energy onto the area.

Caning is still retained in Malaysia and Singapore, where fit male criminals under 50 years of age can be sentenced to a maximum of 24 strokes of the rotan (rattan) cane on the buttocks. The punishment is mandatory for over 40 offenses, mostly violent crimes, but also some immigration violations and acts of vandalism. The caning leaves permanent scars on the recipient.
