Spanking Machines
by Februs

A spanking machine is a device that is capable of automatically administering a spanking. The majority of those which have been conceived (predominantly as artwork) have consisted of rotating wheels with paddles, straps or switches attached. Others have involved spring-loaded arms or levers in which an attached spanking implement, typically a paddle, is drawn back and then subsequently released to strike the buttocks.

One of the earliest documented references to the idea of a spanking machine can be found in Jeremy Bentham's The Rationale of Punishment published in 1830 in which he considers the issue of how to deal with the various factors that affect the force employed when whipping an offender. He goes on to say:
... A machine might be made, which should put in motion certain elastic rods of cane or whalebone, the number and size of which might be determined by the law: the body of the delinquent might be subjected to the strokes of these rods, and the force and rapidity with which they should be applied, might be prescribed by the Judge: thus everything which is arbitrary might be removed.

Historically, the vast majority of references to spanking machines appear to be merely in the form of ideas or concepts but there was at least one which was actually manufactured and sold.

The DeMoulin Bros. & Co. was originally founded in 1892 and by the beginning of the twentieth century was manufacturing a wide range of initiation items for masonic lodges and college fraternities including mechanical goats, pie throwing tables, collapsing chairs but more importantly something which they termed The Lifting And Spanking Machine!

The patent for this was granted to Ulysses DeMoulin on May 4, 1909 and can be viewed in full on the patents section of Google (see patents 654,611 and 920,837). In the abstract for the original application the device was described as follows:
"...This invention relates to devices employed in initiating applicants for membership in secret organizations, and it has for its objective to provide a device of this class which is known as a spanking-machine, the construction being such that the applicant will be struck with a paddle and at the same time will be given an electric shock, the mechanism being thrown into operation by the applicant himself."
Presumably, the victim was blind-folded and tricked into thinking that they were about to undergo a test to determine their strength. The 1930 edition of the DeMoulin Brothers Fraternal Supply Catalog includes the following description of the device which was being sold for $32.50:
"...With this machine the candidate cannot kick his own pants, but can have them spanked where his mother used to apply the sole of her slipper, by simply testing his strength."
Their catalog also featured another spanking related contraption entitled the Invisible Paddle Machine. This operated on a similar principle to the lifting machine but the paddle element was effectively hidden so the would-be initiate would not need to be blind-folded.

Spanking Machines in Art and Fiction
It seems, as has already been suggested, the idea of spanking machines has always had a much greater appeal than any such actual device, although in fairness, there are a number of practical issues that contribute towards that. This appeal can be seen in both spanking fiction and artwork, and particularly in the latter. The hugely popular spanking artist Endart, now unfortunately no longer producing art or maintaining his website, produced a great number of images that featured spanking machines of one kind or another in operation. A few examples are shown below:

As far as spanking fiction goes there are certainly no shortage of stories that feature spanking machines in one form or another. The following stories, which are all available in the library, are a small selection, chosen at random:

Alex Birch's Spankotron XL 500 by Raptor
A wonderful invention by Alex Birch, in the form of a spanking machine, is returned after a demonstration leads to an embarrassing and painful situation for a teacher.

Traffic Stop Machine by otkgirl
In this future time in Texas, some offences, such as speeding, are dealt with by spanking machines. These machines are programmed by actual spankers though and take on the persona of the person who programs them. Miss Johnson has been spanked twice and both times she had very different experiences but this third time exceeds all others.

The GigaSpank Model S-1600 'Corrector' by billboard
Single mother Angie has no alternative but to accept the corporal punishment option in retribution for her eleven driving offences. The procedure on the floors below the County Jail is designed to humiliate and, she is soon to learn, the new technology is guaranteed to terrify and to hurt!

SlapHappy 3000 by Flogmaster
Yvette and her online switchy boyfriend take their relationship a stage further when he buys a special spanking machine, which can be controlled remotely. It spanks him with wood and leather paddles as Yvette watches on webcam.

The Spanking Machine by Neil
A Yorkshire inventor invites his friend and some 'subbies' to try out his new machine. Things don't go exactly to plan though!

Spanking Machine by js_anon
A fantasy about a spanking machine, and how it cannot be controlled or influenced by cries or pleas, the way a loving parent can.

Spankmatic by John Benson
A scientist feels that his research into something that makes pain more acute is a useless project, but others feel differently. With the rise in teenage rebellion, a machine that can spank painfully but without doing damage would be very marketable. The machine increases not only pain, but shame - and sexual feelings.

Currently available machines
If you're looking to actually acquire a spanking machine of your own these days there appear to be two main options: The Robospanker and the Spank-O-Matic II.

The Spank-O-Matic II comes with an integral stand and is equipped with a single heavy 3/8" clear polycarbonate paddle which is designed to be used across both buttocks. It is powered by compressed air and controls allow you to vary both the force and frequency of the strokes. There are also a number of pre-set automated programs that allow a more realistic spanking to be delivered by allowing a random amount of time between strokes as well as varying the power of the stroke itself. A pc control module allows the machine to be controlled from a pc or laptop, either locally or remotely. This allows the nature of the spanking it delivers to be controlled by either the spankee if administering a self-spanking or a spanker from a remote location.

The Robospanker uses a small electric motor to drive a trigger device, which draws back a spring-loaded paddle which is then subsequently released to deliver the stroke. It comes with two paddles which are made of a flexible, shatter-proof plastic and designed to feel like a leather strap, there is also an optional cane attachment available. The paddle can swing both horizontally and vertically and be adjusted to a number of different angles. The machine can be used with or without a spanking bench and has adjustable legs to fit any height. It comes with a 4 foot remote that allows control of when the spanking begins and ends and also allows the the speed of the strokes to be adjusted.
