A wooden spoon is a spoon made of wood, typically used in cooking.

A wooden spoon is also a classic implement for domestic spanking and for BDSM scenes that have a domestic flavor, especially one set in the kitchen. It serves as a form of light paddle. Note that a wooden spoon can be actually more painful than a other light paddles because the impact is concentrated on a smaller surface.

Normally the spoon is given on the buttocks, but it can also be used on the hands (see striking the hand).
