Venus with a Mirror by Titian (c. 1555).

A mirror is an object with a flat surface smooth enough to reflect light back such that a clear reflected image can be seen when looking into the mirror. Mirrors allow, among other things, a person to see themself, or a part of their body that is otherwise hard or impossible to look at.

Mirrors can be made of glass, metal, or other materials, and can be any size. A small mirror can be hand-held, while a large mirror can be mounted to a wall or other place.

In art, self-portraits are traditionally made using a mirror. (Today, photographs offer an alternative.)


Katoptronophilia (from Greek katoptron = mirror) is a paraphilia for mirrors. It may include activities such as stripping in front of a mirror, having sex in front of a mirror, masturbating in front of a mirror, or enacting other paraphilias in front of a mirror.

Mirrors in spanking artEdit

In spanking stories and art, mirrors are often used to check the "damage" (marks) after a spanking. Mirrors can also be used during a spanking to allow a spankee to see themselves (or their bottom), and in self-spanking.

On the InternetEdit

On the Internet, a "mirror" is a website that duplicates a certain part of another website on a different server (usually a bigger file, such as an executable) as an alternative for a download. Mirrors allow a sharing of the load, and offer an alternative in case one server is down or too slow.
