This is my official spanking chair. I am very much interested in the old-fashioned aspects of spanking. Correct positioning, the rituals and of course the straight-backed wooden chair. To me this is a very traditional image which reminds many of us of good old-fashioned spankings.
I chose this chair for just this purpose. It's austere and very solid. It provides me a very good base on which to place the naughty young lady across my lap. It is also sturdy enough to use the seat as a place for the disciplinee to place her hands when bending her over for a formal paddling.
Over the knee is my favorite position and this chair is perfect for it. I have spanked in a variety of locations and have used many different types of seats. Sometimes for protracted spankings or if the spankee has a back problem for instance, a bed or couch works well. I think it's important to be adaptive.
But in a perfect world, a solid wood chair is the perfect place to sit to give a sound OTK spanking!
