From Spanking ArtJump to navigationJump to search
A cushion is a soft bag stuffed with padding, such as feathers, wool, cotton wool, foam rubber, or air. Cushions are most commonly square, rectangular, round, or cylindric.
Cushions are used as a mobile padding to make sitting and resting on chairs and couches more comfortable, and also for sitting, kneeling or lying on the floor.
A pillow is a type of cushion for resting one's head on in bed. A bolster is another special type of cushion.
Cushions in spanking
Cushions are used in spanking for several purposes:
- To make a spanking position more comfortable for the spankee, especially when unpadded (e.g. wooden) furniture is used.
- To enhance a lying spanking position by pushing up the spankee's buttocks. Often, a pile of two or three cushions will be needed for a satisfactory "push up" effect. The use of cushions in this way also makes clenching difficult for the spankee, so the spanking will be delivered to relaxed buttocks.
- Cushions are good for spankers to practise spanking precisely and controlled with new implements, such as canes, straps, or whips. It is a good idea to practise first on a cushion; the spanker can see exactly if the intended target spot was hit or missed.
- After a sound spanking the spankee may be allowed (or not) to sit on a cushion, e.g. during meals or homework, to make sitting more (or less) comfortable.
