I made a quick demo of how I use cables (the only one within reach was our rather long xbox controller charging cord). It was hard to get a shot of it in my hand - in reality the loop is a little longer than it looks like in the first photo. But you get the idea. Note, results will be a lot more dramatic on less spank-acclimated skin.
Btw, my darling test dummy doesn’t appreciate any of you. But she is up :)
I wonder what a thick power cable would achieve…
Deep bruising and screaming, in my experience.
