Probably the worse strapping was when I had been sent to her & I was wearing summer uniform white knickers (instead of the autumn/winter bottle green knickers) under my winter uniform skirt. I got an extra 2 (for the wrong knickers) added onto the 6 id already earnt and all given across my thinner white summer knickers.
They were different (obviously 🤪) and were administered slightly differently - the strap was more thuddy, and you sort of felt it’s impact travel through your body. It was administered (across my knickers) by the headmistress with me bending over the back of an old leather Chesterfield, and my skirt raised. I guess the idea of being bent over the back of the Chesterfield was to support you due to the “thuddy force” applied … the cane; conversely, is instantaneous & stinging (like a very angry bee sting) and its impact was felt like an instant across your bottom & grew. It was administered (across my knickers) bent across her desk. I guess because there wasn’t so much kinetic energy & movement. ……. In answer to your question, the cane was worse as I used to “like” the warming effect of the strap afterwards & the pressure it applied to “other parts” 🤭 that rested on th Chesterfield 😱😱😱
