SCOATL’s focus is to give spankos space to feel more comfortable with their interest, to discuss spanking with others, and potentially to find play partners. There is no singular method to enjoy spanking play. Whether you like spanking just for the sensation of giving or receiving spanks, or use it as a way to release stress, or prefer to play out pretend disciplinary scenes--all are valid modes of expression. Anyone interested in adult spanking is encouraged and welcomed to attend. SCOATL is an inclusive spanking group, open to ALL genders and orientations.
Different people are attracted to spanking for different reasons. For most spankos, spanking isn’t just physical, but also psychological. This may include how someone feels emotionally, or center on particular implements (like a hairbrush, a belt, a wooden spoon, etc.) or connect to certain physical and mental sensations (like having their pants pulled down beforehand, getting scolded, or being placed in a corner).
