Could Spank Therapy Treat Your Anxiety, Depression, or ADHD Symptoms? Some People Think So
You’ve had your ass slapped during sex a time or two. Maybe you’ve even had a partner who enjoyed giving you a good spanking while banging you from behind. But did you know that there’s more to the art of spanking than a haphazard wailing on your butt during sex. Professional Disciplinarian Miss Chris is well known for her approach to spank therapy and when I sat down with her for a recent interview for Locker Room Talk & Shots Podcast, she filled me in on what Spank Therapy is all about. From who seeks it out to how it works and how to give a proper spanking she dished it all and I’ve put together a simple guide for you.
What is Spank Therapy
Spank therapy refers to a form of alternative therapy that involves consensual spanking or physical discipline for therapeutic purposes. It is sometimes used as a component of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Dominance, Submission, Sadism, Masochism) practices, but in a therapeutic context, it focuses on the psychological and emotional aspects rather than sexual gratification. In fact when asked about her take on sex and spank therapy as a spank therapist, Miss Chris says,” Sex can be negotiated into it if you’ve got a partner, but in general, the default is no sex.”
Advocates of spank therapy believe that it can provide a release of tension, stress, or emotional trauma through physical stimulation and the experience of surrendering control to another person. It should only be practiced within a safe, consensual, and negotiated environment, where boundaries and limits are established beforehand. You should also only seek out spank therapy with someone who has experience as a disciplinarian and understand, boundaries and consent.
It’s important to note that while some individuals may find spank therapy beneficial, the practice is considered controversial. It’s always recommended to consult with licensed mental health professionals for evidence-based therapeutic interventions and techniques. Miss Chris is very clear about her position and her role in spank therapy and says, “A lot of people when they see the term spank therapy, they jumped to a conclusion that I might be a doctor or a nurse, or a counselor or a therapist, psychologist or social worker. Let me caveat this by saying, I am none of those things,” she explains. “I am not licensed to perform any medical procedures. I’m not a doctor. And spank therapy is no replacement for real therapy.”
Who Gets Spank Therapy?
“If you’re in real therapy, and you’re kind of lackluster about it, it’s not really working for you. Then the addition of spanking, with a focus on spank therapy is probably a good idea for you,” explains Miss Chris.
According to Miss Chris she sees people of all genders. People seek her out for help with a variety of conditions. Some of the following are most common.
- borderline personality disorder,
- bipolar disorder
- Various triggers and traumas from childhood especially or from adulthood.
Benefits of Spank Therapy
- Stress relief: Some individuals claim that consensual spanking can provide a cathartic release of stress and tension. The physical stimulation and endorphin release may offer a temporary sense of relaxation and relief.
- Emotional release: Advocates argue that spanking can serve as a means of emotional release, allowing individuals to process and express emotions that may be difficult to verbalize.
- Power dynamics and control: For some individuals, engaging in spank therapy within a consensual context can provide a sense of surrendering control or exploring power dynamics. This exploration may help individuals explore aspects of their sexuality, desires, or personal boundaries.
- Trust and communication: Engaging in spank therapy within a consensual and negotiated framework requires open communication and trust between the participants. This can promote the development of trust, emotional connection, and improved communication skills.
- Sensation and stimulation: Some individuals may find the physical sensation and stimulation of spanking pleasurable and arousing. This can contribute to increased body awareness and sensory exploration.
Spank Therapy Techniques
Spank therapy techniques can vary depending on individual preferences, boundaries, and the context in which it is practiced. It is important to note that engaging in any form of alternative therapy, including spank therapy, should always prioritize consent, safety, and communication. Here are some general considerations and techniques that may be involved in spank therapy:
1. Consent and negotiation: Before engaging in spank therapy, clear and enthusiastic consent from all parties involved is essential. This includes discussing and establishing boundaries, limits, and safe words or signals to ensure the comfort and safety of everyone involved.
2. Warm-up and preparation: Spank therapy typically begins with a warm-up phase. This involves gently warming up the area to be spanked through caressing, massaging, or light taps. The warm-up helps to stimulate blood flow, increase arousal, and prepare the body for more intense sensations.
3. Hand spanking: Hand spanking is one of the most common techniques used in spank therapy. It involves using a hand held in various positions to deliver controlled and consensual strikes to the buttocks. The intensity, rhythm, and location of the spanks can be adjusted based on individual preferences and comfort levels.
4. Spanking implements: Some individuals may incorporate spanking implements during therapy sessions. These can include paddles, floggers, or other specialized tools. It is important to choose implements that are appropriate for the individual’s comfort level and that are used safely, avoiding areas of the body that are more vulnerable to injury.
5. Gradual intensity and progression: Spank therapy sessions may involve gradually increasing the intensity of the spanks over time. This can be done through variations in speed, force, and repetition. It is important to continuously check in with the recipient to ensure their comfort and adjust the intensity accordingly.
6. Aftercare: Aftercare is a crucial aspect of spank therapy. It involves providing emotional support, comfort, and reassurance to the recipient after the session. This can include cuddling, gentle touch, or engaging in calming activities to help individuals relax and process any emotions that may have arisen during the session.
Remember, engaging in spank therapy should always be consensual, safe, and within the boundaries established by all participants. It is advisable to consult with experienced practitioners, attend workshops, or seek guidance from professionals with expertise in alternative therapies or BDSM practices to ensure a safe and consensual experience.
