Baton Down The Hatches It’s Going To Get Rough Out There

Hi Mistress Baton! It’s been awhile. How’s life?
It has been awhile…it’s always good to chat with you and your readers. My life is good, thank you. I have continued to do one of the things in life that I love most — spanking, caning, paddling and hair brushing bums and producing BDSM clips. Apart from that, I do the other things I love in life, like cooking, reading and listening to music.
i
You are traveling a lot these days?

I am, yes…South Africa, my home country, is far from most other territories, and I’ve come to realize that I cannot expect everyone to travel to me. Thus, I have become a TourDomme. I love traveling, so don’t mind being away for so many months of the year, though I do miss my rapidly aging grandmother, my dog and my subbies very much when I’m gone.
i
There loss is our gain. You are coming to the United States? Have you been here before?
i
I am coming, and I’m looking forward so much! I have been in Detroit and Charlotte before, but never before toured the States so extensively. I’ve never been to Canada either, so cannot wait to see it.

i

Will it be a regular thing?
i
Yes, I’ll be there at least once a year from now on.
i
That’s great. Besides naked bottoms bent over a table is there anything else you want to see or do on your trips?
i
My schedule is too tight to do much besides inter-city traveling, spanking and sleeping, though I do have a few of Guy Fieri’s ‘Diners, Drive-In’s and Dives’ restaurants on my list of places to visit for a meal.
i
So no must see sightseeing?
i
As I said above, my schedule is too tight to do any sightseeing. Though to walk the streets of cities I’ve seen in movies since childhood, will be a wonderful experience and it will be great sightseeing already.
i
You are a hard player Are you packing canes only?
i
I pack nothing. Only clothes. I’m ordering several canes from an American cane manufacturer, it will be waiting for me in Ottawa. I also ordered a custom-made clacken (old-fashioned Scottish implement used to play the game of ‘Hailes,’ and also used to punish schoolboys) from the American boutique paddle manufacturer, Devilish Designs. It will be waiting for me in New York. The famous American Disciplinarian, spanking therapist and OTK specialist, Miss Chris (with whom I’ll be collaborating in NYC) is making me an ochsenziemer. Besides these implements, I’ll be using standard dungeon implements. And obviously my hands…

i

Mm, your hands. You know how wimpy I am so I have to ask. Can someone book you for an over the knee spanking?
i
Of course! You yourself were instrumental in sparking first curiosity and then me becoming an enthusiastic OTK and domestic discipline practitioner. I’d love to have as many Canadians and Americans as possible over my knee during my tour. For OTK spankings I love using my hands and hairbrushes in inventive positions and leg-locks on deserving bottoms.
i

i
I heard from a little birdie that you are a guest of honor at the LA 2019 DomCon! What does that mean?
i
She was right! I am so excited about this, and honored for the inclusion.
From DomCon Founder and Advisory Board: At each DomCon we invite a few among those in the BDSM community who have achieved prominence and excellence to attend as Guests of Honor
i
What comes with the honor?
i
Aside from attending the convention as a guest of DomCon, each Guest of Honor is publicized on the website and during the event, and is presented a plaque on stage during the opening ceremonies.
i
Do you have duties?
i
Guests of Honor are requested to attend key events at DomCon, so that attendees may have an opportunity to see or meet them.
i
How big is the show and is it open to the public?
i
DomCon LA typically brings in over 1000 attendees. A ticket purchase is required to enter the convention.
i
I’m aging like crazy but you seem to be getting younger. What’s your secret?
i
Thanks for the compliment. I look after my skin really well. I don’t consume alcohol often, I cook my own, healthy food, I drink vitamins, I use good skin products.
Also – I’m going to stop smoking after this tour, in June. So if there are any smoking fetishists who wish to experience me in action, this is your last opportunity to have me perform smoking fetishes on you.
i
Do you continue to get better at your craft?
i
I certainly try. I get a lot of practice. I also keep a diary of my accuracy percentages and recently had posture and technique correction from Blood_Stripe, my mentor.
i

 

What have you learned in the last few years?
i
Personally and professionally, I’m becoming better at cutting toxic people from my life.
i
Wish I learned that sooner. Do you still enjoy dishing it out as much if not more than when you started?
i
Spanking is one of my greatest passions in life. I absolutely love what I do and yes, I do love it more than ever. I consider myself a provider of pleasure for myself and other people. I value that greatly.
Do you remember the first time you caned someone?
i
Yes, I was incredibly nervous, but after the first three strokes of thirty in total I was so exhilarated and loved it so much, that I was determined to make it a very big part of my life. I had a premonition, I sort of knew that this was a determining moment of my life. It felt for a moment as if time was standing still, as if it solidified after that third stroke.
i
So it was Strike Three You’re In? (baseball twist) Talk canes, like your favorites, where you buy them and how you pick them?
i
My favorite type of cane is a dragon cane. For normal canings the dimensions I prefer are 90 cm long, 10 mm thick; for judicial canings, 1,1 m long, 13 mm thick. My favorite cane manufacturers are Canes4Pain (USA), Caniac (USA), English Vice Canes (USA) and Quality Control (UK).
i

 

Not that you feel them but you do see the reactions from them. Is thick better than thin?
i
There is not a specific cane dimension that is better than another…it all depends on the Caner’s preferences, as well as those of the Canee. I assess the person’s skin condition—if they have soft spots, ‘leather butt’ or keloid scars, I’ll opt for a thick cane, to minimize cutting. If it’s someone who prefers to be caned at very light severity, then I will use a short, thin cane. I consider many factors and will not bore anyone with too many technical details.
i
I don’t think you are boring any of us. Does one really stand out over another?
i
Superficially, yes. But ultimately, it’s about the skill of the Caner.
i
Which you have in abundance. Do you ever warm a bottom first or do you just come out swinging?
i
It depends on the recipient, whether they prefer a cold caning (so no warmup) or if they want to be warmed up first. I like both methods. Cold canings show the caning stripes better, though. It appears more vivid. So, aesthetically, I prefer cold canings.
i
Probably don’t use safe words?
i
My safe-wording and ethical protocol:
– Recipients always have the right to stop the play at any time.
– Recipients always have the right to ask me to go slower or to take a bit of a break.
– I follow both RACK (Risk Aware Consensual Kink) and SSC (Safe, Sane, Consensual) protocol of responsible kink activity.
– I also adhere to my own protocol strictly.
– I am always sober when playing, and lead a mostly sober life.
– I have a very comprehensive questionnaire, which clients have to fill out before seeing me.
i

 

That’s so responsible. Do you keep a running count of the strokes you deliver?
i
Most of the time, yes. Sometimes during sessions with no role play, when the recipient and I are laughing and joking, we lose count. It never matters when one is having fun though, does it?
i
What’s the most you ever landed on someone?
i
With a cane, 150 strokes. That was three years ago, though. These days I am able to cane much, much harder and during judicial canings the most cane strokes I can safely administer, is between 36 and 60.
i
Do you get tears most of the time?
i
No, I seldom see real tears. I mostly play with men and in society as it is now, men has been taught to never cry, which is a shame. Tears cleanse and heal. But what I do to them also cleanses and heals their psyche, so ultimately, the tears aren’t a prerequisite to experience the emotional benefits of spanking.
i
How do you know when to stop?
i
Very easily, for various reasons, some of which I’ll list:
– The average-sized bum can take 18 strokes, closely laddered, from the top of the bum crack to the sweet spot, the sit-spot. During a judicial caning (meaning I land a blood stripe with every stroke), every cut after the 18th stroke will fall into an already-existing cut, so with every stroke after the 18th the cuts become deeper and that blood stripes eventually become blood flow. I monitor it closely and stop the caning, even if the recipient wants to continue, once the cane may start slipping on the blood. I will not cane until the cuts become too deep and stitches might be needed, resulting in scars. I stop long before that.
– I monitor the level of subspace recipients slip into closely at all times. If I consider them unable to make safe choices any longer, I will stop the play.
– I maintain full control of my own bloodlust.
i

i

Do you believe in aftercare? I mean do you ever wonder if your scars are permanent?
i
Yes, I offer both medical, emotional and physical (hugging, holding hands, holding someone in my embrace if needed) aftercare. I do not cause scars. I am a safe and sober player, no matter how hard I am able to play.
i
 Is the bottom your primary target? Do you whip thighs and backs too? Anywhere else? Feet hands front of thighs calves?
i
I love hand tawsing/strapping. I also love falaka and bastinado (foot caning), as well as back whipping and flogging. I love landing strokes to the inside of the thighs with paddles and wooden spoons. I play on most fleshy, safe body parts.
i
Is the butt your favorite landing spot?
i
Haha, do you even need to ask? I love butts. It’s my favorite landing spot, yes.

    I have never been properly canned. There was one time years ago when I was a drug abuser. (As a side note I stopped doing drugs after meeting a Domme) prior to that, I was a “mans man” 100% dominant. Any female I went out with was punished with spankings and domestic discipline. I the thought of being spanked was absurd I’m my mind my motto was “only women get spanked never men” was I ever wrong. That faithful day came when I was in my thirties and I met a lady that was totally capable. Our relationship started with me spanking her after the second time we were together, I wore the panties 24/7 I was subjected to severe spankings and whippings and humiliation and lots of domestic discipline for eight months right up until the day before she was married.
    The first time she found out I was using cocaine she started off with an otk hairbrush spanking when my bottom was blistered to her satisfaction I had to lie over pillows to elevate my bottom she whipped my bottom with a cane until it was covered with blood. She just kept whipping probably 100 strokes she stopped and put wet towels on my bloody bottom. She was nervous so was I. I still am curious about real professional canning but haven’t had the opportunity.
    I did get caught by her friend at a VIP party six months later doing cocaine again. I was disciplined by both. A blistered bottom and lots of humiliation which I hope I don’t have to go through again. I have never done drugs again.
