Movies and Spanking

After sharing with you one of my favorite spanking scenes in a movie which first introduced me to this world, I thought I would showcase some more spanking scenes in movies.

This is definitely not a complete list, as there are probably hundreds of spanking scenes throughout the history of cinema, but I thought I would share some of my personal favorites, and my least favorites and why.

First up, and probably one of the most famous spanking scene in cinema is the spanking scene with John Wayne and Maureen O’hara in Mclintock! Those of you haven’t seen it should know that there are actually twos spanking scenes in one movie. The first one was with Patrick Wayne, John Wayne’s real-life son, spanking his future wife played by Stephanie Powers.

But obviously, the best scene is when John Wayne spanks Maureen O’hara in her underthings in front of the entire town.

Although I personally find it quite comical that a coal shovel was used as a implement in both scenes, something that I would probably never think about using, although as you can see from the reactions, it seems pretty effective! The movie was actually pretty fun and entertaining, and I still watch it occasionally just for a good laugh. Ironically enough, John Wayne stars in several other movies that had spanking scene them, including True Grit, and Donovan’s Reef.

The next movie I’m sure most people in the 21st Century are familiar with, and that is the movie Secretary. The movie stars James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal as a secretary who loses her way and has trouble coping with self harm issues. She gets a job as a secretary under James Spader who plays a lawyer, who ends up using Dominance and submission as a way of showing Maggie’s character a better way of coping with her issues.

Now, most spankings in mainstream movies don’t necessarily capture the essence of a real spanking, and this movie is no exception. I mean, seriously how can you spank somebody and make it look like you’re playing tennis or ping pong with the ridiculous forehand and backhand motion? Anyways, the movie is pretty decent, however, I do have several issues with it. This movie, along with several others (The Killer Inside Me for example) portrays being a spanko/kinkster as abnormal, and it makes us look like we all have some sort of mental issue, or damaged psyche that explains why we partake in this type of lifestyle. Obviously the truth is far from that, and if you really want to talk about what’s normal and abnormal, I think we (spankos) are more normal than most people because of the fact that we accept our fetishes, and kinks, and what turns us on, sexual or not, instead of hiding and suppressing those feelings most vanilla people do.

Another movie with a spanking scene in it that I thought was fairly well done was the movie A Dangerous Method. Now I’ll be honest I didn’t actually watch the movie I just watched the spanking scene, however I thought the spanking you see had some pretty decent reaction shots from Kiera Knightly who is famous for the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. The problem I had with it? It was a typical mainstream movie-spanking. It was too short, and didn’t capture the real essence of a spanking.

The last, and definitely least, of my favorite spanking scenes in a movie has to obviously come from Fifty Shades of Grey. First off, I’ve never seen a movie cast so poorly in terms of picking an actor and actress with such terrible on screen chemistry. Each and every scene with them felt so forced and unnatural and after a while the movie lost all sense of magic an escape from reality. After reading the book I was particularly excited to see how the spanking scene from the book would be portrayed on film, I was sadly very disappointed with the outcome. I mean, really…3 swats? The whole scene was awkward and unnatural.

There was a few good moments in the movie, however, it should not be advertised as a movie by or for people in the spanking or BDSM community. It was a romantic drama and let’s leave it at that.

So how about it spanko world? What was your favorite or least favorite spanking in a mainstream movie? Go ahead and leave a comment, and tell us your thoughts! In the meantime, enjoy the rest your week and happy spankings!
