Recap: Spanko Brunch for December 9

We discussed spanking in the kitchen, and here's what you had to say:

Dan: Hi Hermione. I don't know if this qualifies as "spanky fun," but an incident in the kitchen is tied to one of my most compelling memories around spanking. We are more or less in the closet about our spanking (DD variety) relationship, and also about the Female Led dynamic we've been experimenting with. Last year, we hosted a Christmas brunch for her family. We were in the middle of transferring food from the kitchen to the dining room, and she asked me to do something for her. I had had a couple of Mimosas and responded with some quip about why she couldn't do it herself. She turned to me and said, "Well, you can do it or I can just spank you." While no one reacted, there were others standing in the kitchen with me or walking from the kitchen to the dining room, and I'm pretty sure more than one of them heard it. While I think anyone who overheard it thought she was joking, it still made a really powerful impression on me, as it was the first time she had ever been open about spanking and about our power exchange dynamic. A year later, I can still see myself in the kitchen and hear those words coming out of her mouth.

The Glenmore: When your wife is in her bathrobe and both hands in the sink...well what is a guy to do?

QBuzz: The kitchen is indeed a very spanky place. I think everytime we're both in there at least one of us gets their bottom smacked! I think it's the easy access thanks to dressing gowns etc and all the bending over to look in the oven etc

Roz: We enjoy cooking together and it has occasionally led to a few quick swats with whatever's handy. Usually for giving him cheek or trying to be bossy lol.

Sir Wendel: I’ve always associated the kitchen with spanking since that’s where my mom would spank me. Sometimes on the weekends the Misses will make breakfast wearing just the apron and one thing leads to another and one or both of us are eating standing up.

CrimsonKing: Our very first spankings were in the kitchen. My wife was busy cooking when I came out of the shower and approached her, naked, for some affection.
"Now?!" she exclaimed. We'd been talking about spanking previously but hadn't actually done it. "You want to be spanked? You're gonna get spanked!"
She turned me around over the counter and gave me four sharp swats with a wooden spatula. It hurt! (But of course, it was very exciting!)
Now I've been spanked all around the house (and more than four swats!) but yes, the kitchen remains very special.

Jack: Spankings will take place then and there, my wife feels it is best to address the problem quickly. Spankings in the kitchen are the worse of all. If you have not been spanked with a large wooden spoon, consider yourself lucky. A couple of times there have been another person present, and my wife could care less. I get a scolding, stand before her while she pulls my pants and underpants down. Over her lap and as she as said you put on a good show for the guest. It is facing the wall, while the person and my wife visit. The question asked is do you spank him often, my wife states yes and then adds it does help to improve him.

Bernie: "Do you need the wooden spoon"? Is any other comment necessary?

Ronnie: P gives the occasional swat to remind me to get a move on when I'm helping him with food prep and if P clears the dinner mats I usually get a swat with them.

Annabelle: I have only spanked Hank once in the kitchen. He came in after work and after having a few cocktails.
I was angry and grabbed a cutting board that our son had made at boy scout camp that summer.
Hank was in sweats and I pulled them down and gave him a good reward for coming home drunk.
Our son who was at the time 13 walked in while his dad was whimpering bent over the table.

Abby Williams: Hi Hermione! We don't get up to much serious play in the kitchen - the dogs will not have it! That being said, when I'm making dinner and the pups are playing outside, I love when Mr. W is following me around unable to keep his hands off my backside in some mix of playful touching and sneaky smacks. We also have a wooden spatula that was retired to the bedroom when I got a new one for the kitchen, so it's not like he hasn't manage to get in a good swat or two over the years - we liked that one well enough to at least keep it out of nostalgia.

NoraJean: The kitchen lends itself to so many bending over opportunities, I'd have to say there has been a least one or two swats or more in the kitchen :>))

Rosco: Irene will occasionally give me a few swats in the kitchen, but our windows face the neighbors so it never gets very far.

Once we were cooking at a large communal kitchen with several friends and strangers and Irene decided to start whacking me with a pair of wooden implements. I think she was just having fun cooking and got carried away. Usually she’s very private about spanking me (though it’s gone on long enough that some of our friends know.)
Hermione: The kitchen is such an inviting place for a spanking. The chairs are not suitable for OTK -- they are high bar stools -- but the built-in table is just the right height to bend across. There are plenty of implements to choose from, including a heart-shaped spoon, a wooden pizza cutter, and a baguette board, all hanging on the wall within easy reach.

That was fun! Now I must head down to the kitchen to make breakfast. I just might leave a spatula or spoon on the counter as a hint!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #256

The Great Online Cookie Exchange Extravaganza is over for another year, and I really enjoyed myself. This was the first year I joined in but it won't be the last. So many recipes, so little time! I wonder what the inspiration for some of them was. Let's discuss!

Do you ever have spanky fun in the kitchen? If so, is it during the preparation of a meal or a batch of something tasty? Or does it occur because the kitchen is a handy, well-equipped place to spank? 

Leave your response as a comment, and I will publish a roundup of your escapades once everyone has had a chance to respond.

Friday Fun

I'm not one to speak up directly or argue with someone. I prefer to take a passive-aggressive approach to get my point across, so I can sympathize with the people who wrote these signs.

Happy Friday!

The Great Cookie Extravaganza

If you or someone in your family enjoys baking, then get a head start on making holiday goodies with this recipe. It freezes well so you can pop it into the freezer and then have it on hand for guests. I made these squares last week and the ones I didn't freeze disappeared quickly!

Photo and recipe from ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen
Butterscotch Cranberry Squares

    1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) cranberries
    2 tablespoons sugar
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    dash of salt
    1 cup melted butter
    I cup chopped dates
    3/4 cup chopped pecans, walnuts or other nuts
    1 (12 ounce) jar butterscotch sauce
    1/3 cup flour

Toss cranberries with 2 tbsp sugar and set aside.
Combine 2 cups flour and the next 5 ingredients (down to salt).
Stir in butter until crumbly.
Reserve one cup of this mixture.
Press remaining mixture into lightly greased 13x9" pan.
Bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes.

Combine cranberries, dates and nuts and sprinkle over crust.
Stir together butterscotch sauce and 1/3 cup flour.
Spoon over cranberry mixture.
Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake 25 more minutes.
Cool on a rack and cut into squares. May be frozen for up to one month.

If cranberries are not available, feel free to substitute blueberries, or use raisins or other dried fruit. The butterscotch sauce may also be omitted if that's too much sugar for you. They will still be yummy.

Let's have a round of applause for Jz who organized today's cookie exchange. These bloggers are also sharing recipes today, so be sure to visit them all:

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for December 2

What is your most memorable spanking?

QBuzz: We have a leather paddle that is lovely but is too severe for my partner and was (up to recently) reserved for 'punishment roleplay' spankings for me rather than 'romantic roleplay'.
But the last time my girlfriend used it my bottom just seemed to be able to take it and she spanked me much longer and harder across her lap with it than ever before. It was bliss - it really is an exquisitely crafted implement and she was able to use it to wallop me to submissive oblivion :D

Dan: Shortly after we got into disciplinary spankings, she called me at work one day and ordered me to come home at lunch, stating that I was going to get spanked as soon as I arrived. She was very clear that I was to arrive no later than 12:30 and was to go directly upstairs, get undressed and "assume the position." Somehow, that drive home seemed to take forever, and yet ended too quickly. I did as she had instructed. She came upstairs, delivered a very thorough strapping, then sent me back to work, where I sat all afternoon on a very sore bottom.

It's been well over ten years since that lunch break. For some reason, that one always sticks out in my mind.

Sir Wendel: Several years back we went to Las Vegas and stayed in the Luxor Pyramid. The misses caught me admiring a group of scantily dressed ladies walking through the lobby. She whispered in my ear that I would be paddled as soon as we got to the room. Once in the room she turned off all the lights and put the desk chair in front on the window. The misses told me that she was going to spank me until my bottom glowed in the dark for the whole city to see. I was ordered to remove all my clothes and the bend over her lap. She spanked my bottom with the paddle for about 5 minutes. It was painful to put my pants back on and I could not sit for a couple of hours. I have always wondered if anyone could see from outside.

Roz: I have a couple of memorable spankings, my most serious punishment spanking after I had failed to check in with Rick while away and let him know I had arrived safely etc. He was beside himself with worry.

The other was when we had purchase a necklace featuring entertained hearts as what we called a vanilla collar. It was a symbol of our dynamic and intended to remind us of our roles. We had a sort of collaring ceremony which included a spanking.

What made both these spankings memorable was the emotions involved in each.

sub hub: I don't remember what the infraction was ... I clearly remember the punishment spanking I received for it.

What made it memorable was simple ... I was instructed to place the wrist cuffs harness over the door, using the little gadget that is for that purpose. Then, I was required to go into the closet, remove all of my clothes, attach place wrist and ankle restraints and then kneel on the bedroom floor waiting for Mistress K. to arrive.

She burst into the room with purpose, fully dressed, and immediately retrieved her paddle. She instructed me to stand and led me to the harness hanging on the door and attached the wrist restraints. I was required to press my body against the door (like I was going to "try to fuck the door"). Mistress K. started with what turned out to be a long, sustained paddling of my naked bottom that literally transformed me mentally and physically the deepest state of subspace I had experienced.

Katie: Hi Hermione, :) There have been lots, but I have to say that the most memorable one was the first time Rob gave me a discipline spanking. I couldn't believe that he actually, spontaneously did that. I didn't see it coming. Wasn't sure how onboard he was going to be, though we had talked plenty at the time. We were just going with the flow.

I interrupted him talking, and poked him to get his attention. Later, when we were upstairs in our room, he sat down on the loveseat, and pulled my pants down, and gave me six spanks with his hand, while he told me how much he disliked that kind of thing. Not only was I surprised, but I also felt bad. I try not to go there any more. Definitely wins the most memorable award around here!

NoraJean: A short, sharp in the moment spanking, in response to something I said ... it was followed by an instant feeling of contrition ... all of which took me by surprise

Barrel: The most recent punishment session six months ago is still incredibly vivid. While her use of all of our toys and extended duration (45 minutes) are memorable, what I recall the most was the mental transformation I went through culminating in draping myself across our spanking bench. She worked on my mental preparation for almost a week. Hints, reminders and related tasks, like readying the restraints the day before, contributed to the build up. I knew the session would be long and intense, yet I was so ready to submit, it was almost easy. She punished me up to her comfort point, yet I craved more. Very special.

Minelle: I remember a spanking where I blamed it on menopausal bravery pills! It was memorable because it brought out a calmness in us both! His hand and my bottom were sore! :)

Bernie: We were in Chicago 3 or 4 years ago, staying at the Four Seasons. I was looking out the window at Michigan Avenue when I was told to strip and bend over with my hands on the window sill. The paddling was enough to make me look backwards, which, of course, added quite a few more strokes (I kept my attention on the view).

We had a nice breakfast in the room, then another session looking at the city, and "dessert."

I was sore enough to remember the morning's events all the way back to LA.

Ronnie: A memorable and totally unexpected event It was my birthday. I got two bunches of roses. One for the vase and P spanked with the other one (no thorns).

Hermione: I've had several very memorable ones, but the one that I described here comes to mind.

What good memories you all have! Thank you for sharing.

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #255

Welcome to the first brunch of the last month of the year. Today's topic was suggested by an anonymous reader, and I think it will bring back some fond (or not so fond) memories.

Has there been a spanking that was really memorable for you? Not necessarily the hardest or longest, but one that stands out in your mind. What made it so memorable?

Leave your response as a comment and I will publish a summary of our discussion next week.

You Completed the Caption

Here's the postcard with the original speech bubble. Now let's see what your imaginations conjured up:

Bob: Why, of course, dear, that bottom would look better with some stripes. May I?

KDPierre: "Sorry Fred, gotta go. A very important client just arrived and I need to look over her assets."

Katie: "Tom, I have to go. I think that she will bend over... I mean... bend on the proposal."

The Glenmore: Hold my calls Miss Jones something just came down...I mean up!

Minelle: ‘Pretty soon her bottom will be as red as my face!’

QBuzz: 'Better hold my calls for the next hour... I'm about to give my secretary her "performance evaluation"!'

Baxter: Yes, Jenkins, I believe the orgasm, er ah, the organization would be better off looking at the material in panties and how they cover the asses, er ah, the assets.

Ella: "Before we can tackle the quarterly report, there is something I must get to the bottom of. The competition is stiff."

Sir Wendel: Yes Mr. Farnsworth. I am about to dive right into your daughter’s overdrawn account and correct the problem immediately.

Wonderful! You could all be naughty postcard creators. Do stay on for brunch. I'm serving it in just a short while.
