Pervertible (frequently misspelt "pervertable") is a term originally coined by David Stein to describe ordinary non-sexual objects, especially everyday household items, that can be used in a sexual context such as spanking and various BDSM practices (see also perversion).

Pervertibles are common, factory-made products for the home, garden, or recreation that have been adapted for "perverted" use by disciplinarians and corporal punishment fetishists alike. A true pervertible is a ready-made object that requires no alterations for its dual use, such as giving a spanking with the sole of a shoe or rolled-up newspaper.

Pervertibles and spanking[edit]

Spanking in the mainstream has a long history of pervertibles. Parents and teachers have been using pervertible implements for administering discipline since the introduction of the hairbrush, leather belt, ruler, yardstick, carpet beater, walking stick, and blackboard pointer. Sometimes these repurposed items are preferred over dedicated implements such as canes and switches to avoid imparting negative "in sight, in mind" images on the spankee.

Pervertible household items include the long-handled feather duster and bath brush, fly swatter, back scratcher, clothes brush, dust brush, and metal/plastic dust pan, whisk broom, fireplace shovel (see McLintock!), wood and wire coathangers, laundry beaters, hand mirror, basting brushes and other long-handled barbecue tools.

The wooden Party Paddle (marketed under the PartyPaddle brand name), originally made for serving drinks in bars, has recently become a commercial product. It is nearly identical to a fraternity/sorority spanking paddle except it has six indentations for holding shot glasses or mini mugs. After each round of drinks is consumed, the paddle becomes available for playful disciplinary use. Amateur party footage can be seen on YouTube. Some bars and restaurants also feature regular paddlings with this serving implement. Video from one of these establishments, the Hofbrau House in Las Vegas, can be seen on YouTube.

In the kitchen some have found alternative uses for cooking spatulas (wood, rubber, and plastic), rubber or silicone dough scrapers, wood butter paddles, large wooden spoons, metal serving spoons, cutting boards, oversized wooden salad forks and spoons, small pots and pans, pot-scrubbing brushes, and the wire whisk. Chop sticks, bamboo skewers and stir-fry sticks held together with rubberbands can also be used as a tongue, nipple or breast clamp.

Garage and basement pervertibles include the painting stir-stick, long-handled shop brush, dowel rod, plastic ice scraper, cement trowel, wide putty knife, plastic tubing, rubber fan belt, paint brushes, bungee cords, wire brush (both sides), short lengths of scrap wood, pegboard, molding or plexiglass, electrical wire or extension cord, sawhorse (for bending over), step-ladder (for bondage use) and a car floor mat with spikes for disciplinary kneeling or sitting.

Yard implements: bamboo plant stakes (thick ones for caning, a handful of thinner sticks for birching), cotton clothesline, clothes-pins, wood tomato stakes, garden trowel, and a short length of surplus garden hose.

Recreational products: bamboo fishing pole, ping-pong paddle, paddleball, Battledore, Jokari, Pickleball and racquet ball paddles, plastic whiffle ball bat, mini cricket bat, jump rope, a child's plastic or metal beach shovel, vaulting horse, and canoe, kayak or other boat paddles. (At Anime conventions, a short canoe paddle has been converted into a Yaoi paddle for ritual spankings.)

Equestrian gear such as rubber bit-gags, saddles, blinders, grooming brushes, riding crops and horse whips are also easily converted for use on humans for both punishment BDSM sessions and consensual pony play.
