Intro into spanking | Hosted by Hotsqueak

Sat Oct 28, 10:00 - Sat Oct 28, 14:00

Embodiment Rope Space


This workshop covers the broad foundational aspects of impact play, with a specific focus on spanking. It is aimed at people with little to no experience in impact play.


Where do I start? 

An introduction to spanking

This covers foundations such as desire, communication, negotiation, and consent.


How to be a safer player

Aiding safety from a top and bottom perspective

This shares information on safe and unsafe areas for impact; safe impact for different areas; a suitable environment; risk appetite; safe words; potential risks; and how to ensure your strokes are landing where you want them to.


Tools of the trade 

How to choose an implement

It's important to use an implement that suits your skill level, appetite for pain, preference for sensation, and goal. 



Practical things to negotiate

This includes warm-ups, aftercare, hygiene, positions, pace, safe words, etc.


Q&A and practice

If you would like to participate in the practice session, please bring a willing partner. Alternatively, you are welcome to watch the others. This is a good time to ask questions so you can spank safely. This is not a "play" session or a scene, it is a practice session. 


Although switching is encouraged, nobody is expected to participate in the practical section and consent can be revoked at any time. 

A single ticket has been added as an option for those who would like to learn the theory and watch the practical section.


To bring:

Please bring whatever you need for aftercare, and any implements you have and would like to use. We’ll have hot chocolate and tea available. Please bring some lunch and/or snacks for the shared snack table. 


To note:

You may not touch anyone, including hug them, without their consent. Please be mindful of the language you use, the space you are in, and the people around you. Embodiment house rules apply. If you cannot afford the workshop, please contact HotSqueak via our email address: [email protected]
