GlossaryThis is not a comprehensive glossary, it only goes over the terms and acronyms which are usually unfamiliar to new spankos.
CDDChristian Domestic Discipline. A variant of Domestic Discipline which is generally of two types:
- A relationship wherein both partners want a disciplinary dynamic within the values of a Christian lifestyle.
- A disciplinary dynamic which (arguably) cites the Christian Bible (as opposed to willingness or consent) as the fundamental motivation/justification for spanking practices in the home.
DDDomestic Discipline. The practice of spanking in the home for disciplinary purposes.

Safeword (or safety gesture)
An agreed-upon method of communication which, when invoked, stops the scene immediately. The scene does not resume until the person who used it confirms they are ready to resume, if at all.
Note: The author of this site discourages the use of safewords for beginner play and instead recommends that any indication to stop should be respected. The practice of a safeword assumes that any other protest is ignored during a spanking, which is only safe to do once the spanking partners have taken the time and effort to learn each other's limits, limitations, and reactions quite well.
