From the Top Shelf - Chairs

This informative article, written by D.H. for Februs magazine 18 years ago, is intended for tops or spankers. But those of you on the receiving end of a spanking may also find it interesting. I, for one, always enjoy getting some insight into the way a top's mind works.

Chairs are for sitting on, I know, but there is no doubt that if you are sitting on an armless chair, then there should be, spread across your knees, some bare-bottomed supplicant who has well deserved the spanking you are about to deliver. She may not think she has deserved it, but, nevertheless that is why she will be there and why you are sitting on a wooden chair in the middle of the room so that there is ample room for kicking legs and flailing arms.
Even in so simple a matter as a childish spanking over the knees, though, there are finer points to consider. Should she be stripped completely before you pull her over your lap? Should she simply have to pull her knickers down and, if so, should she do this herself or would you prefer to attend to this task? Should she be made to lie across your knee of her own accord? Should she have to stand between your legs before being laid over one thigh - which enables you to hold her legs down with the other one - or should she be laid across both thighs so that her legs splay nicely apart as the spanking proceeds? In this case, you can hook the side of your foot over her outer ankle so as to give firmer support as matters proceed. Should you cross your knees before bending her over them? If so, then her legs should be parted... her buttocks opened wide into the bargain...

I have, myself, a preference for punishment given in this particular way, naked bottom under my hand, my other hand worked round and under her waist to keep her tightly to me. It is sometimes fun, though, to have her sitting on your lap, with her back to you, her legs astride yours so she is open to every movement of your hands however deeply the fingers thrust - and then to force her forward so that her bottom lies widely open to a hand that reddens each cheek with short, hard strokes while the other works gently under her once more, holding her firmly in position...

There are other sorts of chair that can be used, to place a girl in more elegantly shaming postures, even if she is not so closely confined, and some of those possibilities are worth more consideration.

The armchair is often to hand, and the temptation is simply to force her over its back, sweeping the skirt up over her back, taking the knickers down and off to leave her bottom curved tightly to receive hand, hairbrush or even a swift cane. She will be able to hide her face in the depths of the chair as you bring tears to her eyes, and receive you gratefully as you work into her from behind when the punishment has finished and her tears are turning to gasps of excitement.

There is, however, a more entertaining posture she can be led into, less comfortable in itself... Her jeans or skirt have to be taken off to start with, and then her knickers similarly removed. Some preliminary caresses are allowable at this stage, but with the warning that tears will follow however much you love her, that her bottom will be etched with the marks of your cane, marks that you will kiss when they have reddened into weals, marks that she will be able to relish for evenings to come as she prepares for bed.

The chair should have padded arms and come well forward, for it is on these that she is to kneel, with her knees halfway along them so that she can bend forward and down, tucking the back of her head against the back of the chair, down and down until the top of her head is against the seat, and her arms free to clasp around its back.

Six or twelve strokes of the cane will be enough to have her begging for an alternative tactile contact, and, her bottom being so tightly offered, you will have no doubt as to how it would be exciting to take her.

If the armchair has a sloping back, then a cushion may be placed into its angle, and your partner slid forward, to its front so that her skirt (if you have not made her take it off) is high around her waist. Lifting her legs you can remove her knickers (if, of course, she is still wearing any) and bring her knees back against her stomach, so that she can hold her legs down. Here is the softest part of her drawn tight for your hand or strap or, if the punishment needs to be severe, your cane.

While talking of armchairs, we may detour the room a little to put the sofa into use. The most obvious method is to have her kneeling at one end, bottom over the arm, hands on the floor, raising her cheeks nicely to the strap, head lower than the knees.

Kitchen chairs make another style of chevalet. One I saw the other day in one of those shops that are never undersold, had a seat high off the ground, with an open steel back and an open foot rest at the front. Here it will be necessary to strip the penitent completely before having her stand facing the chair, then making her bend down so as to slip head and shoulders through the open back; tummy resting on the seat; her feet tucked inside the foot rest. Uneasily balanced, her buttocks will be tidily offered to cane or strap, and the lower lips readily available for consoling caresses when the pain becomes excessive.

The bar stool serves more easily, for wrists and ankles go to each corner, and the bottom is presented to perfection, tightly stretched for the cane and wide open to kisses and caresses while the punishment is in progress...

So punishing your lady in a variety of positions does not need an outlay of expense. Most of the equipment is already there, in your own home. Use it wisely!
From now on I will look upon our kitchen chairs with new respect.

Bonnie is Back!

Six years ago, our dear friend Bonnie introduced my brand new blog to the world, and now it's time for me to return the favour.

Bonnie has a brand spanking new blog called A Spanko Garden. I know you'll want to drop by, have a look at her new home, and welcome her back.

Just couldn't stay away, huh?

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for July 20

Our topic was spanking fantasies, and the response was enthusiastic.

Nick: Very simple. When my lovely Asian girlfriend figured out I loved spanking, she used it to control our lovemaking. The harder she wanted me the harder she spanked, while we coupled, missionary style.

Amber: Sir has helped me make many fantasies come true over the years. Some by surprise, some by me voicing them. One favorite was to finally be dominated and spanked by Him and another female at one time.

Welcome, Amber and Nick!

River: I am usually very vocal about my fantasies, but not always too specific. So Ash has gotten used to fulfilling them in surprising ways, which is perfect for a sub who doesn't want to be in charge of the details, or much else for that matter ;-)

Sir Wendel: My fantasy was always about a sexy maid in skimpy outfit. For one of our anniversary trips my misses bought a French maid costume. Every time we were in the hotel room she wore it and started cleaning the room. If she dropped or spilled something I would take her over my lap, pull her panties down and spank her. Since we didn't leave the room much her bottom remained red for the five days we were there.

Dr. Ken: For the longest time my fantasy was just spanking, hoping to find a lady to spank. I had no luck with girlfriends or finding anyone local. I finally answered a personal ad from a lady in Rhode Island, we hit it off, I flew out, and the fantasy finally became reality. And I've been going to spanking parties and meeting people for spanking ever since. So, fantasy fulfilled!

Still working on that cheerleader fantasy, though... :-)

Six of the best: Yes, my lady friend took on the role as a naughty school teacher, and I played the part of a school-boy. Since lateness to class was her error, I got to spank her. A beautiful fantasy came to life.

Underling: Great topic, Hermione, and already some lovely responses. I think this will end up a real feel-good thread - it's nice to hear about people's dreams being fulfilled :).

Like Dr. Ken, I had fantasies about spanking for a long time before I finally got to indulge them - first as a spankee, with a pro Domme, and later as a spanker.

I'm in the lucky position of having a spankee for a girlfriend - at one time I'd have thought that laughably unlikely, so that in itself is an overarching fantasy fulfilled. And because we already have that shared kinkiness as a foundation, we both find it really easy to open up about all the more specific little fantasies we have within it. I think I enjoy making hers come true at least as much as she does mine! :) 

Ronnie: Had all but one of my fantasies come true. Coincidence, that fantasy is my post for tomorrow.

Great minds think alike!

Respecting Mistress: My fantasy was to live with a Lady who believed in using old fashioned disciplinary methods to keep me in line. I can't believe I'm now living that fantasy...

Enzo: Yes, one in particular comes to mind. My partner took the hint and entire lead. She showed up and surprised me with a little gem; hidden up to that point in her purse. It was an old fashioned thermometer. For me to use on her.

Hermione: My fantasy while I was growing up was being spanked by a tall, dark, handsome man, and I was fortunate to find that man thirty years ago. Although my mind wanders to other fantasies from time to time, that's still my favourite.

Thank you to all who contributed. Coming up next - some exciting news. You'll never guess who's back!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #29

Greetings, fellow spanking enthusiasts, and welcome to another weekend brunch. Today's topic was inspired by a scene from season two of Boardwalk Empire, in which the mayor of Atlantic City is treated to his favourite fantasy as a birthday treat. (Yes, it involved spanking.)

Have you ever had a fantasy come true? Were you instrumental in making it happen, or did your partner see to it that your fantasy would become reality? 

As usual, please leave your reply as a comment, and I will post an edited summary of our discussion on Monday.

You had some amusing things to say about fishing, and here they are:

DelFonte: Now, remember, if you don't catch anything, that rod will be put to good use.

Ronnie: Don't worry darling when I've finished fishing I'll show you another use for the rod.

Six of the best: "She is fishing for a swishing."

Rollin: There is a hunky Navy Seal down there and I'm going to catch him -- one way or another.

Prefectdt: The strip fishing competition was not going to well for Jenny.

All hers: Bring that large umbrella over here and hold it over me while I fish. I am getting too much sun.

A. Lurker: Hey handsome, is that another fishing rod or are you just happy to see me?

Marina decided to ditch the clownfish in favour of a barracuda.

Mandy: Sara was part of the Fisho-Spanko clan in which common practice was to fish then be spanked with the rod. I hear a National Geographic special, don't you?

Measha: Topless Fishing this Friday! *bottoms optional*

Mitch: There is more than one way to bait a line. I always reel in what I'm fishing for.

Anon: Whatever made you think I'm going for fish?

Ricky: Now here is a very healthy minded young lady who obviously believes in fresh air ever(y)wear.

Hermione: I set all the worms free. Don't you think I deserve a spanking?

Now that we've all enjoyed some fresh air fun, I hope you will stay for brunch and join in what promises to be an interesting discussion.

Friday FAIL

I was going through my ever-growing collection of FAIL photos yesterday, and assigning the pictures to categories. These were filed under "Butt". I hope you enjoy them!

What a clever bottom!

 The shark is obviously a butt man.

Bum looker!

Tell it like it is!

I can't imagine buying this product, but then, I don't need it.

I saved the best for last. A little over-exposure is always funny, except for the victim.

Happy Friday! Don't forget to Complete the Caption.

Canada is fortunate to have many lakes with clean water and plenty of aquatic life. Fishing is a popular summertime activity, and this young woman seems to be enjoying herself. I hope she is wearing sunblock, or  has some other way of preventing all that exposed skin from turning bright red.
