Historic illustration of whipping implements. "The figures in the upper half of this plate represent the Prison-Rod and Whipping-Post. The Rattan, Birch, and Loose Garment belong to ladies’ boarding schools in the last century. The Rule and Ferule (or “Jonathan”) were used in boy’s schools. The holes in the spatula raised blisters. Beneath are the modern Jesuit discipline with the Whipping-Post or Hurdle in Wandsworth House of Correction. On either side are Knouts of leather and of twisted cord."

A spanking implement is any object used to strike the spankee's buttocks. Some are exclusively manufactured for this purpose, such as a cane, flogger or punishment paddle. Improvised household items, such as a hairbrush, leather belt or ruler, are also frequently used for spanking. These are also known as pervertible implements. A third category involves home-made corporal punishment devices such as a birch rod, switch, and stinging nettles.
