    so i think my wife may now be ok with spanking me and i want us to try it out. we do however now live in a mid terrace house so any advice on keeping the noise down. I will be gagged and i was going to put some background music on.

    My wife will not go anywhere else to do the spanking only in the home.

    With the precautions you're already taking (gag, background music), I don't think that the noise will travel to be heard by your neighbours, especially since it sounds like you and your wife are new to spanking so it's probably not going to start off as an extremely intense or painful activity!

    Spanking is the sort of thing that can sound loud to the people involved, but I don't think it's the sort of noise that travels.

    Good luck with it.

    I live in a mid-terrace too and the walls are ridiculously thin, the noises I've heard coming from next door are a little insane! BUT honestly if you have the TV or music on, and they have their TV on, neighbours won't hear a thing. I agree with Skitty though, spanking definitely sounds louder to the people involved, so don't worry, just enjoy yourselves 😁

    Putting music on is your best bet. The general choice is Bolero, as this has the perfect tempo for concealing consistent blows.

    Do you mean the sound of actual spanking or the moans/groans that go with it? Because unless you're spanking with Thor's hammer, I'm pretty sure impact sounds won't travel past the room you're in. 

    I guess if your walls are REALLY thin then you could go for a silent spanker like this, but obviously reducing sound also reduced sensation so this might be something you want to think about. 

    Alternatively, just say you were having a "who can clap the loudest" competition; it will both baffle and confuse them enough they they'll probably stop being so nosey! :P

    I think its your own perception of the sound is what is bothering you. As Jess has said you would really have to have big blows for sound to travel next door no matter how thin the walls are. Background music should allay your worries.

    You could also look at using a cane or riding crop both of these are pretty quiet as implements go .

    But I think you are worrying about nothing and letting it spoil your fun .

    Spanking isn't as loud as it seem, like others have said. Just put on some music that any noise that does escape could blend in with, and you'll be well away :)

    Wooden kitchen spoon for starters if you must.However I have to say many of the implements on sale at Lovehoney are relatively inexpensive .I can recommend the Bondage Boutique beginners butterfly riding crop.

    All I'll say is to either avoid anything plastic, or keep it as the final stage. Use of wooden kitchen implements (wooden spoon, etc) are great, but too many things these day as are made from bloody plastic. In the hands of novices, they can really hurt, and not in a pleasurable way.

    Spanking equipment isn't too expensive here at Lovehoney, there are some affordable options. I'd personally stick to using things that are designed for spanking. Work up from a hand to a dual sided paddle that has one satin side and one leather. Wood is one of the toughest materials to be spanked with and can provide quite the sting, so probably wouldn't recommend that if you're new to spanking!

    Yes, starting with hands and building up to toys is a good idea. The one side padded, one side leather type paddles such as this one: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=33628 are fantastic for introduction! I'm in love with ours. Keep in mind, the larger the impact surface, the lesser the pain, but more of a noise.

    If you really don't want to invest yet in proper instruments, you can use a ruler (wood or alluminum), a hard copy book, a hairbrush, a ping-pong racket... just use your common sense and consensus. :)

    Riding crops in general have a great sting to them, almost no noise, but the one mysteron mentioned, the Butterfly silicone one is actually an instrument of torture in my opinion. It is definitely something I need to warm up to.
