Sunday spanking crossword

I was tickled pink when a Dreams of Spanking member sent me this gem. It's a cryptic crossword he's created, themed on spanking - and Dreams of Spanking in particular. How clever is that? I thought it would be a perfect game for a leisurely Sunday morning. Here's his explanation:

As well as being into spanking I'm also quite a crossword enthusiast (two great English vices perhaps). Over recent months one or two cryptic crossword setters in the paper I read have on occasion been writing some clues and solutions which include innuendo or double entendre. These themed crosswords are the sort of thing that get used for holiday specials and the like. Of course in a national paper this can only go so far. I thought it might be fun if this went a step or two further and had a go at putting together a rather more forthright spanking-themed crossword. The result was the puzzle below.

As an extra help, in the clues I've underlined the definition parts and left the cryptic bits without underlines. This allows the puzzle to be done as a non-cryptic ordinary crossword hopefully.  Not all clues are fetish related, nor all answers but there are a fair few.

Sunday Spanking Crossword

I don't often do crosswords and I usually fare very poorly on the cryptic variety. But the theme makes this one enjoyable.

I think I got all but 2 of the clues. Spoiler alert - I'm going to reveal my partial answers for those 2 clues. Read no further if you think that may reduce your own fun.

5 across: ? a ? h ? s ?

15 down: t ? o ? n ? e ? t
