Definition - What does Tawse mean?

The tawse is a tool of corporal punishment that was historically used on school children to enforce discipline. In the BDSM community, the tawse is used to reinforce the relationship dynamics between a submissive and a dominant. This whip consists of a strip of leather with multiple tails on an end. This device of discipline might also be referred to as a belt.

Kinkly explains Tawse

The tawse is a whip that was often used in Scotland and England before it was abolished in the 1980s. This whip is now often used in BDSM. Made of solid leather with multiple tails on one end, it can be used for a flogging during a BDSM encounter. To ensure safety, it is good to discuss comfort and boundaries when using corporal punishment.
