Just Right!

Our house is a split-level, and that means that on the bottom floor we only have half a real basement with a reasonably high ceiling. In the other half, we have what's known as a crawlspace. There, the ceiling is only about 4 feet high, and that makes it hard to get around. Twice a year, I have to make several trips hauling out the Christmas decorations, then a month later, dragging them all back in again. The same goes for our gardening paraphernalia, plus many occasional trips to find various little-used items stored there. It's really hard on my back, as you can imagine. There must be a better way.

I took a look in one of our favourite online shops, Wayfair, and their slogan, "We have just what you need" is right. I found this adjustable saddle stool at a very reasonable price. Its low height means I can propel myself around the cramped space with little effort.

 You might think as I do that the saddle is slightly kinky, but that design means I won't accidentally slip off. It would not be useful for any kind of spanking activity because, with five wheels, the first stroke would whisk me far out of range. But here are some more appropriate stools.

Then there are even more effective spanking benches.

I didn't see any of those on Wayfair, and perhaps it's just as well. We don't have room for one, except in the crawlspace.

Stay safe!

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for May 2

Does your spanking have a rhythm?

Barrel: We do not spank to any rhythm or pattern. There are times when my wife wants to reinforce a point she is lecturing me about and her pace quickens. But normally, her spanking is quite measured.

When we first started spanking, I used to play the music from the Disciplinary Wives Club website during spankings. It really set the mood and I connected that music with being spanked. Regrettably, Aunt Kay is no longer with us and the site lacks that music. I’ve tried to find it as it would fit well now with our sessions. Alas...

Happy May Day!!

Joe: Oh yes many times there is music playing during my spankings. When certain songs come on she will keep to the beat and when it is a fast rapid beat watch out, all I can do is hang on and hope it is a short song.

Baxter: My spanker, AKA my wife, spanks me only in prime numbers. No idea why, but it is irrelevant when she is wielding a paddle or strap as my bottom will be spanked a prime number. Sometimes she just starts and I have to know how many spanks she has done and if not a prime number, I tell her how many more. OR I pick a prime number and she spanks and we both count. The result is that my bottom is very red and a bit sore and I am a happy hubby. 

Wendel: We never tried spanking to the beat. The speed of the smacks might fluctuate during the spanking.

Roz: We don't spank to a rhythm as such, however there is sometimes a pattern, so many swats on one side followed by the same number on the other side.

Jack: Hard, Rapid, Long, or when my wife feels I have been properly punished. I do the spanking dance if that counts, but it is short, told to face the wall, no rubbing, talking.

Rosco: Irene will get into a rhythm sometimes, delivering a dozen or so whacks at equal time intervals. I’ll try to breathe in time, exhaling before each one.

Other times she’ll ease off in response to my thrashing due to the intensity.

I love those extended rhythms when the sting is just right and feel like I could take it forever. But my bottom is hot and tender for several days after.

Prefectdt: I have never deliberately discussed spanking to a rhythm with a spanker but some of them have tended to fall into a rhythmic spanking pattern. I find that I notice it most when the rhythm ends or changes and causes a bit of a wakeup from the subspace dive.

A.J.: Not so much. As long as it's evenly spread around. (No one-cheek sambas!!!!) I think we would do smacks in groups of 10, maybe 20, but that's about it.

On a side note if I happen to watch a spanking video I find myself judging the type of spanking give by it's "slap-cadence" (is too a term.)

One swat every second with the bare hand or light implement is a "nice" spanking. You can get a smile from the spankee when you are done.

Jump the pace to two-per-second, and THIS is a real spanking. It's just naturally harder because the pace is faster. Not mean or vicious, but at two-per-second someone got spanked! They won't be angry but you should get a "Whoa!" from the spankee with some bottom-rubbing after. Then you can laugh.

Jump it up to 3-4 per second...? You don't want this spanking!

At two smacks every second = 120 smacks per minute.
A beat of 120 per minute is marching time.
For the fun of it, think of your some college fight song while she is otk and you smack to the beat! Mine:
"On Wisconsin, on Wisconsin" slap, whack, slap, whack, smack...

Don't have a favorite college fight song? Any will do. "Anchors Aweigh"? Or,
"Seventy-six trombones led the big parade..."
Try it. It works!

Usually I would sing that as I spanked, but it could work the other way - have the spankee doing the singing to their spanking! Mess up the lyrics...? So sorry. "Again! From the top!"

Hermione: Sometimes Ron will paddle to a beat that only he can hear. I try to guess the tune he is paddling to, but I usually fail, and that results in extras.

That's all for this week, folks. keep on marching to that different drummer's beat.

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #381

Tra la, it's May, the lusty month of May! Sing along with me, and dance too, if you like. Let's get the party started.

Does the spanker in your relationship ever spank with some sort of rhythm? If so, is it a regular occurrence or only occasional? Does anything in particular prompt the use of a rhythm? What is the spankee's reaction to it?

Please share your response with us all by leaving a comment. I will publish an edited summary of our conversation on Monday.

You Completed the Caption

KDPierre: After her hyper-critical neighbor told her that her butt looked fat on 'Naked Gardening Day', Philomena decided to "water" her neighbor's planter...with a pitcher full of Weed-B-Gon. 

Paddle Daddy: These will be lovely switches for my bottom in a few weeks.

Prefectdt: You know that it is nude art, rather than pornography, because there are urns.

Barrel: With a little water, maybe I can grow a fig leaf. 

Baxter: I love the red flowers and will throw the petals on my bed, waiting for my Knight in Shining Armor to come to me with a couple thoughts of what to do with me. I do want youknowwhat, but I really want a spanking so that my soft white bottom becomes the same color as these soft red petals. And then we can do youknowwhat. Ooooh, the orgasm that lies ahead, laying in a bed of red petals.

Anon: No matter when, seeing such a beauty would need to join her, naked, to enjoy the flowers she would bring to my life. 

Red: This is a kind of boring life. I wonder what that apple tastes like!

Midwest Reader: "Three more turns of the hourglass and I will get my shift back at least. I wonder if I will receive another spanking then? Perhaps. Yet I do hope these stems do not scratch me in the interval."

Hermione: I'll save half the water to cool my bottom after the head gardener spanks me for letting the flowers wilt.

Stay tuned for brunch, coming up soon.

No Shortage Now

Sometimes I miss being able to go to the mall and browse the clothing stores.Not that I need any new clothes, since I'm stuck inside the house most days, but still.... A month ago, when I was in the supermarket, I decided to check out the clothing line there. I never had before, but it was the only safe place to shop for clothes. I picked up two camisoles at a very reasonable price, and was very happy with them. They fit well, were well made, and satisfied my wish for something new.

On my next shopping trip I planned to include more clothes, but that was after the latest lockdown. Clothing and other goods that were considered non-essential were out of bounds in all stores that also carried food. The clothing area was blocked off by a wall of toilet paper.

Sigh! Whatever happened to the toilet paper shortage? There was enough here to fill a small gymnasium. I had to give up on my quest and resort, once more, to online shopping for any new apparel.

Now come with me as we stroll through the food aisles.

Stay safe!

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for April 25

This week we discussed sitting on a hard surface after a spanking.

Wendel: Sitting down after a spanking is not part of a ritual but occurs if the spanking is given before we go somewhere or when we would have family over. Since we work at home we give spankings in the morning or at lunch time. It is fun to watch the Misses struggle to find a comfy sitting position so she can work. 

A.J.: Yeah; I got'cher "hard surface" right here. Have a seat.

Sorry. Couldn't resist. Real answer: No. 

Graham: No. Yuk! :-) 

Jack: As a male I tend to need to go after a spanking, can't explain, I'm not allow to stand, but have to seat and relieve myself. My wife enjoys seeing me squirm.

Barrel: We don’t. However after a spirited spanking, my wife enjoys seeing me squirm dealing with the after effects, particularly when 3 or 4 days post.

Glenmore: Depending on the restaurant, it wasn't always a hard surface, but we often end to lunch or dinner after a spanking. Even if the chair was comfy it was still uncomfortable. Was also sent back to work after a spanking. I believe its not a case of sitting on a hard surface, but how long you have to sit there. 

Anon: I've often taken my spankee out to eat very soon after a spanking, and with some, we both enjoyed restaurants that happened to have wooden chairs.

I've also had one spankee write out punishment lines, bare bottomed, on a wooden folding chair, directly in front of me, after an otk spanking.

So while not a "always use it technique", it has come up on occasion.

Roz: We have on occasion gone to a cafe or restaurant post spanking, but no, sitting on a hard surface isn't part of our usual ritual.

Ronnie: Sitting down on a hard surface after a spanking is not part of our ritual, but a number of times we have gone out to our little local bistro after I've been spanked and that place does have hard seats.

Prefectdt: This has been part of some spankings that I have received. I don't find sitting on a hard surface, with a spanked bottom too uncomfortable but if I have been sat for a while and then stand up, I sometimes find the standing up part brings back a lot of pain to my battered bottom

Dr. Ken: Corner time on occasion, yes. Sitting on a hard surface, no.

QBuzz: Does next day at work count? My partner loves receiving messages from me about how uncomfortable it is sitting on a well-spanked bottom all day on an office chair :D

We also like the idea of post-spanking 'Punishment Mats' a la Real Life Spankings or Eric Stanton's 'Family Business' comic, but haven't got round to trying them yet.

Hermione: There's no requirement for it here. After a spanking, we usually adjourn to the family room to watch tv, and the cushions there are nice and soft.

Stay safe, y'all!
