“Let the punishment be proportionate to the offense.”
Many of you may have school discipline fantasies without understanding much about the actual cane. Over the years I have had queries in relation to cane differences and the marks they leave. As caning is a particular love of Mine, I will tell you about My extensive cane collection and answer the most common questions in the process.
I have a number of rattan canes in various lengths and diameters which have a bearing on their severity but the density of the rattan itself creates the most notable difference.
The majority of My canes are made from the lighter Kooboo rattan however, one of My favourites is the Senior Dragon Cane which is denser and more severe. How severe do I hear you ask? The difference will be painfully obvious to those on the receiving end of My disciplinary correction *smirks*.
When considering the difference, it is important to remember that the ‘cane’ is only a tool but caning is an art! Therefore, an experienced Mistress wielding a low density cane might well hurt a great deal more than a less experienced Mistress using a higher density cane.
With any tools, they must be looked after and I water My cane collection once a month or so (except for My thin canes which are whippy enough) making them much heavier, more flexible and much more effective *smiles with satisfaction*. They are also lovingly caressed with linseed oil approximately once a year as required (some canes dry out faster than others).
In terms of leaving marks and the time these will last after corrective discipline depends on a number of factors: the type of skin you have, how sensitive your skin is to marking, and how quickly you heal.
While one sub or slave may be able to cope with a medium level discipline after a decent warm-up and not show any marks, another will be left with vivid stripes lasting anywhere from a few days to a month or more. Then there are the well seasoned bottoms who do not mark easily at all. A judicial scenario involves a caning without a warm-up creating more prominent, well defined and longer lasting welts.
For those who cannot be marked too severely, there are ways in which the intensity can be reduced to lessen the distinctive stripes normally left after a sufficient thrashing.
Caning is a passion of Mine. I relish the delivery of every exquisite parallel stripe and watching each welt rise as I breathe in the intoxicating, lingering aroma of linseed oil emanating from My supple cane.
