Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for August 16

This week we discussed whether wearing blindfolds, gags or other  paraphernalia enhanced your spanking experience. You said this:

Simon: Like you I enjoy all the sensations of a punishment session. I have never tried earplugs or headphones so I have no idea what effect they have. I have been blindfolded and this makes quite a difference. It adds a sense of mystery and surprise to the experience and also an even greater feeling of loss of control. Clearly it has to be the person on the receiving end who is blindfolded as I don't recommend trying to swing a paddle or cane whilst wearing a blindfold.

Nina: Hi Hermione, I am fully with you on involving all the senses. For more intense spankings we have used blindfolds and being bound adds to how you experience being spanked too. It gets the juices flowing quickly.

However, for punishments, there is usually nothing that we add, then it is hand, paddle, or whatever implement hubby wants and I am across his knees. I like that, being over his knees is wonderful because I am so close to him, but the joy is greater when it is not punishment.

Wilma: Well it is probably a little different over here as we generally don't play (can't wrap my head around that just yet) even though we have recently tried. I generally keep my eyes closed very tightly during a spanking, and I don't make a habit of reaching back ( although I have on occasion brought my feet up to slow the process), Barney has often chosen to use blindfolds and restraints. He does this to remove even more control from me...and most times it works. Particularly the restraints. However, getting me to stand and putting my hands on the wall, and informing I am not to move, also has an entirely different mindset going for me.

arched one: I love the entire spanking experience. In this house we practice punishment, maintenance, and just because I want to spank you. Being told I'm going to get a spanking and sent to get the implements out and looking at them knowing soon my bottom will feel their effects. The spanking discussion prior to spanking. With punishment it's scolding with maintenance it's why I need maintenance and the just because spanking I hear how much fun she is going to have paddling my bottom. Then assuming the position she desires. Just prior to using each implement she will rub it on my bottom then spank with it. The feel of the implement landing and sting and sound both from the implement and me is wonderful. I have been tied up at times but never wore ear plugs or head phones. We have an exercize room that has one wall that is all mirrors. Being spanked in that room is quite the experience as I can watch as the spanking takes place.

Roz: We have used blindfolds and light bondage during a spanking and ut definitely adds to the sensory experience.

S: Ear plugs and phones - no, because I love the sound of impact on my bottom. Gags - a bit more tricky; you can't comment on your spanking, like harder or too hard, and of course you can't use the safe word, which we always have in place, also very demeaning as a gag holds your mouth open, and makes you dribble. Blindfolds are usually used with bondage, and I find this very exciting, with all your senses focussed on one's upturned bottom, not knowing which implement is going to land on it, if a hand spanking is suddenly going to become a caning or if its covering is going to be stripped off, without warning, and of course, once bottom is well warmed up, whether it is going to get a vigorous penetration! Great to be in the unknown.

PK: I love being blindfolded! It most definitely enhances the experience for me. But I have to be able to hear - not hearing freaks me out.

Leigh: We tried blindfolds and wrist and ankle cuffs. No earphones, I don't hear well anyway. I think it does increase the sensation. I think the anticipation and words do more than anything for me.

Jan: Hi Hermione, I like the cuffs and don't mind a blindfold but I wouldn't like a gag or headphones at all!

Ronnie: Never thought about using earplugs/headphones during a spanking. Not sure if I'd like to as words do a lot for me.

We've used blindfolds and a little bondage. Definitely enhances the experience.

Bonnie: Randy sometimes uses a blindfold to heighten the element of surprise. If I can't see, I can't really anticipate. Gags are a hard limit for me. Communicating and breathing are both essential. I don't recall trying earplugs, but we have used headphones with mixed results. I could live happily without any of these enhancements, but I'm not the one who choreographs our spankings.

Baxter: We don't use anything like that. My wife likes to hear the splat of the paddle on my bottom. We were in a hotel last evening and being that it was my birthday, she really enjoyed the splat sounds bouncing off the walls. I enjoyed the splats as well and my bottom is still sore today.

ronjon: Being blindfolded heightens the experience. The last time we did it my wife invited a friend of hers to help with the spanking. I was to tell them which one gave the better spanking. It was hard to tell as I was flat on the bed with each one of them on a side of the bed. The leather straps came so fast that I could not tell which was the better. However, when done I told my wife she was the better!! Next time I spank her I said I might bring a friend of mine. I'm not sure she is quite ready for this excitement, but
we will see. I never did see her friend or knew who it was.

Hermione: We have never used gags or blindfolds, although I usually keep my eyes tightly shut during a spanking.

Thank you all for that peek inside your heads. See you all next week for another thought-provoking question!

Just blindfolds here so far. My wife's hearing is the next to go.

Way to go, Ms. Hermione, that's the best way to do it!
And, may I ask, would you please tell us what those two introductory dishes are; they both look so delicious!

Hermione said...

Jon - I'm sorry to hear that ;)

Ricky - Those are bean soup and chicken noodle soup,both intended to be eaten with a fork!
