Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for November 29

What do you think about during a spanking, and how does the person wielding the paddle help with focus?

Rosco: Mostly when Irene spanks me it’s for some imaginary offense, related to peeking up girls’ skirts, surreptitiously smelling worn panties or similar forms of puerile behavior. She’s lecturing me all the while and I soak it all in as if it were real. It’s an other-worldly experience in some ways.

Sometimes I’ll also complain or misbehave during a spanking, just to be sure it doesn’t end all too soon.

 Bonnie: I'm sorry to respond, "It depends," but it does depend upon the nature of the spanking and my headspace. For example, if I am getting a fun or sexy spanking, I might be planning my next wisecracking retorts. If Randy is trying to deliver a message, I am more likely to pay attention to his words and the manner in which he punctuates them. There are more shades in between and he sometimes changes the tone midway through. Most of the time, we are in sync, but when we aren't, the results can be pretty funny.

Baxter: I am 99% always the spankee and I am concentrating on the fire that is erupting on my bottom and counting how many spanks I have received. While painful, I also realize I asked for the spanking and trying very hard to soak in the enjoyment of it, as all too soon, it will be over. 

Joe: When my spankings start I am always thankful that my wife is willing to do this for me. As the spanking progresses, if it is a sexy spanking I am fantasizing about different things which we will talk about later. If a hard spanking I am not thinking about anything else. I totally clear my mind.

Roz: It depends for me. At the start of the spanking my focus is on the spanking itself and Rick's words. However, depending on the reason for the spanking, intensity, duration etc my mind may begin to wander.

Prefectdt: At the start of the spanking I am usually focused on the pain and wondering why I do this, as it f(censored)g hurts. Then I become focused on self control, breathing and mentally processing the pain. Then my focus starts to drift and is all over the place and I get locked into being controlled by the spanker and wishing that the spanking will never end.

Jack: I think about just having the spanking over, especially when my mother-in-law is visiting and enjoying seeing me over her daughter's lap.

Barrel: Initially, I try to corral my butterflies to the realization that, yep, I’m about to get spanked. Thereafter, like Perfectdt, I am processing the initial waves of stinging pain, and wondering why I crave this treatment. But then I focus on controlling my breathing being sure not to hold my breath. I, too, count strokes as my wife generally delivers them in groups of 20, so I generally have an idea when I may get a break. This may sound crazy but I try to think about letting the pain in, and trying to relax. With one of our extended sessions where I am secured over the bench at the bottom of our bed, I just process the last stroke and prepare for the next, knowing there will be a lot.

Ronnie: Similar to Bonnie. Depends on the spanking I'm receiving. Fun spankings, I throw in a few funny wisecracks. If a serious spanking, then I have to concentrate on P's words very carefully and make sure I answer his questions.

Hermione: Mostly I think about the pain, if one of the harsher implements is being used. Otherwise, my mind does tend to wander a bit. I can actually mentally play one of my online video games in bits and pieces. More often, I think about the erotic fun that's sure to follow.

That's all for this week. Until next time, stay safe!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #359

Welcome, one and all, to our weekend brunch. How's your concentration? Can you focus on the job at hand, or are you more of a daydreamer? Let's find out.

If you are the spankee, during the actual spanking, what do you think about or where is your focus?  Does your thinking or focus change as the spanking progresses?  If you are the spanker, what encouragement do you provide as the spanking progresses to help you partner endure?

Please leave your response as a comment. Once everyone has had a chance to contribute, I will publish an edited summary of our conversation.

From the Top Shelf - A Love our Lurkers Story

Inspired by our latest Love our Lurkers celebration, my good friend Boru has written a short story with that as his theme. It is set in a game reserve somewhere in Africa in the present day.

We have had very quiet time for the last few months, as the Covid-19 regulations meant that we were closed up until very recently. Pat and I, as well as our two operations managers, Lakshmi and Dave had been the sole occupants of our camp for several months, having opted to stay on instead of returning to their homes. They said they consider this place home now and we had become closer than a family in our forced isolation in the bush. Especially since the first day we had closed to visitors and sent the staff home, when Pat spontaneously stripped off and dived in the pool, calling us all to join her.

That little lark triggered a very different change in our dynamic, as I threatened to spank her, only for her to reply “promises, promises!” with a huge grin.

“Come on you two,” she went on, “get Mac’s kit off him, I know you both have a huge crush on him and, if you’re lucky, he’ll spank you too!”

Lakshmi (Lucky) and Dave (Camp David, because he is) attacked me together and had me stripped quickly, whilst I in turn had Lucky’s skirt and Dave’s shorts down and pulled their knickers down. Dave doesn’t actually wear girls’ knickers, but qualify as knickers, as they are definitely as camp as he is. They both went over Pat’s desk in turn for a quick spanking, screaming and laughing at the same time as we all then jumped in the pool.

It is, of course, impossible to spank underwater, as Pat found out quickly as she swam away laughing. I grabbed her ankle and pulled her to me as Lucky grabbed my other arm. We all ended up grabbing and groping wherever we could reach and it turned into quite an orgy of erotic pleasurable nonsense, which left us quite exhausted. I was left in no doubt that I now had a small tribe of very close friends.

We climbed out of the pool and Dave went off to get some beers for us, whilst I sent Pat off to fetch her strap to keep my promise.

“Right Pat, over here beside the lounger, feet apart and bend over with your hands flat on the lounger bed. Stick your tummy out to bring your bum up to the spanking position.”

Whack!  Whack!  Whack!   Pat screeched at each one.

“Up you get,” as she jumped up clutching her bum and making a show of pouting.

I saw Lucky and Dave looking on avidly; they were enjoying the show immensely.

“Right, next!” caused them to start, but Dave recovered quickly and was in position, not with alacrity, but certainly without any kind of delay. Whack!  Whack!  Whack! Dave yelled at each one.

Again, “up you get” and Dave was rubbing his bum with a grin.

“Next!” and Lucky was there almost as I said it. Whack!   Whack!   Whack!  Lucky yelped at each one.

“Up you get,” and Lucky rubbed her bum, but had a huge grin on her face and I gave her a hug. Pat said “Oi!” and handed me my beer. But also hugged me and then, well, let’s just say it was a very satisfying afternoon together.

More recently, we again opened, as we were allowed local guests. Now, international visitors will be back again soon. In the meantime, we had a lot of fun times with just the four of us, a well stocked freezer and fridge, a pool, a strap and, occasionally, when we had a spare few minutes the Internet. Even now, we still were not busy, so had the occasional few days alone.
Now I noticed it was Love our Lurkers day and we were sitting by the pool with a beer, after a swim, in our usual lack of attire.

“Right,” I said, “who has been lurking on spanking websites over the last few months?” They all held a hand up, smiling. “Who has posted anything on any site, a thank you, or a response to a comments section?”

Nothing, not a peep, was the firm reply from the silent motionless tribe. “Don’t you think that’s a bit mean ” I asked, “all the work that goes into those sites and you don’t even give them a wave?”

“No,” they all said, a bit sheepishly “do you really think we are obliged to? Most people don’t.”

“Maybe we can change that and send in a post, just for LOL day, let’s give them a spanking story just for all the lurkers to comment on for this day. You’re all suitably unattired for the occasion already.”

Groans and grins followed, but they didn’t exactly reject the idea, so I sent Lucky off to fetch the strap and told Pat to get in position by the lounger bent over, bum up.

I took the strap off Lucky and proceeded to whack Pat. Whack! Whack! with the usual screeches.

“Come over here Lucky,” as I handed her the strap and said “now you give her two, same as I did, you’ve seen how.”  

Wide eyed, Lucky stepped forward and showed she did indeed observe and learn well! Whack!    Whack!  with the usual screeches again from Pat, with a surprised look over her shoulder.

“Now you give her a couple Dave,” as he stepped forward with a grin and he, too, showed his powers of observation as Whack!  Whack!  with more screeches and a look of dismay.

“Right, up you get, Pat,” which she did quickly, rubbing her bum and giving me an old-fashioned look.

“Bend over Lucky, your turn!”

“Eek!” and she took her place. Whack!  Whack!  with the usual yelps

“Now you give her a couple, Dave.” Whack!  Whack! with more yelps

“OK Pat, now give as you received.” Whack!  Whack!  with even more yelps.

“Up you get, Lucky” as I rubbed her bum, getting a whack from Pat for my trouble. Pat just looked innocent and content, as I glowered at her.

“Dave, your turn” as I retrieved the strap from my cheeky brat, watching Dave getting in position, hands on the lounger and bum sticking up. Whack!  Whack!  with the yells that only Dave can do.

“Now Pat, you can satisfy all the readers, lurkers or not, who like to see a woman giving a whacking to a young man’s bum." Whack! Whack!  with more yells, louder this time, as Pat really laid them on with relish.

"Lucky, now you can show what a young lady can do.” Whack! Whack! Dave yelled loudly, but I think more for effect, although his bum was red enough from Pat’s efforts still.

“Now up you get and everyone gather on either side of me.”

“We love our lurkers” we sang out in unison and the tickling started and…

What fun! Thank you, Boru.

Calling all Bloggers

The day is almost here. What day, you ask? Why, the day we celebrate our silent readers. In fact, we extend this celebration over two days to give everyone a chance to participate.

Are you ready? If you will be joining in LoL days, then please let me know by comment or email, so I can add your blog to my LoL post.

The details are:

What is it? Lurkers, anonymous readers, call them what you will. They are the people who read our blogs on a regular or occasional basis, but never leave a comment. On LoL days, we bloggers encourage those people to be brave and leave a comment. Most blogs allow commenters to remain anonymous, so they never have to reveal their real identity.

Where is it? It's everywhere, but right here on this blog, I will put up a post and record the links to all bloggers who are participating in LoL Days. If you want to see who has joined in the fun, drop by here and you will see the list. 

When is it?  Friday November 20 and Saturday, November 21.

Who can join? All bloggers are invited to participate. You may put up one post or two (one for each day). It's up to you. If you are joining in, please leave a comment here so that I can include you.

What do I have to do?
If you are a blogger, publish a post on November 20, encouraging your silent readers to leave a comment. "Love our Lurkers" in the title will be helpful but not compulsory.

What do I say? Some bloggers ask questions for their lurkers to answer. Others have competitions, with a spank for every comment left. Still others only want all their readers to say hello. The important thing is to be friendly and encouraging to readers who might be apprehensive about leaving a comment. Please remember to allow anonymous comments, even if only for a day or two.

Our good friend Enzo at Everyday Spankings has provided these two images that you are welcome to use on your LoL post, if you choose.

Let's make this year's celebration one to remember!

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for November 15

Do you ever have spankings for no reason?

Yorkie: All my spankings are “Just because” I want one. Simple as that. 

Rosco: We pretend. Long ago we agreed it was only a fun thing, and Irene would never spank me if she was really angry with me. That said, she says she does like to make it hurt.

But we don’t just do it. We make something up, usually a role play thing. I play myself, but she’ll play herself, or “Laura” (her middle name), or a sorority girl or a senorita or a southern belle or a fraulein etc. Usually I’ve been caught peeking up girls' dresses or into the locker room or stealing panties. For that I am punished on and off for an hour or two, then we have intense cunnlingus followed by intercourse.

Anon: Absolutely! Both directions. 

Wendel: Yes. There are times when I just feel like spanking the Misses. She always looks shocked when I tell her to drop her pants as I take off my belt. After a good whipping she will just lay quietly with her sore bottom exposed for a while. The favor is returned often. I acted surprised but I am actually thrilled to be getting a sore bottom.

Joe: I get spanked just because I want it, a reason is made up sometimes just for fun. 

Roz: When we had an active dynamic spanking was a mixture of discipline, role affirmation and just for fun. There doesn't necessarily have to be a reason. Nowadays any spanking is purely for fun.

Simon: Whether giving or receiving spankings I'm always doing it for the enjoyment of myself and the person I am spanking and that's the only reason.

Jack: My wife has spanked me when I've done nothing wrong. A reminder to be good would be her reason.

Prefectdt: The only reason that I need to get a spanking is that I really, really want to get a spanking.

And the vast majority of my spankings have either been "Just Because" or for a non real reason, thought up to fit into a pleasantly painful roleplay situation. 

sub hub in phx: Yes. It is not uncommon for Mistress K. to spontaneously decide on the spot to give me a spanking. Usually they are playful and sting a little. Sometimes they are really playful and sting a lot.

Baxter: I get spanked because I want to be spanked. My wife plays along and her only rule is the number of spanks has to be a prime number. 

Alan: Yes there has to be a reason although she makes that call. We have only used disciplinary spanking, so “funishments” and other erotic games are not a part. But fairness is her north star so she decides the reason a spanking must happen through that prism of fairness. Whether I agree that it is “fair" or not is not relevant to whether it happens. Although she encourages discussing afterward if we are not on the same page, we usually are.

Ronnie: Yes, P spanks just because. Always fun.

Bonnie: Randy doesn't need a reason to spank me beyond just because, but it's more fun when there is a reason. Even a flimsy reason (Tuesday) or a contrived reason (attractive leggings) makes spankings more effective and meaningful.

Barrel: We don’t need a reason, but I usually provide one. It is often my need to feel submissive, so I ask for one. However, my most common reason is stress relief, when a good thrashing provides the appropriate cure.

Hermione: I must answer "no" to that one, because there is always a reason. We we both enjoy them, and they are our main form of foreplay; those are two very good reasons!

Stay safe, everyone!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #357

Before we get started on today's discussion, I want to remind you all about the big Love our Lurkers celebration coming up next Friday and Saturday (November 20-21). This is a chance for those silent readers to peek out and say hello to their favourite bloggers. All bloggers are very welcome to join in, and all readers are encouraged to leave comments. I will have more information for you in the coming week.

Now on to our topic of the day.

Do you need a reason for a spanking? Have you ever given or received a "just because" spanking for no reason?

Please leave your response as a comment. If you haven't participated in a brunch before, now's your chance. You may remain anonymous if you wish. Once everyone has had a chance ot speak, I will publish an edited summary of our conversation.

You Completed the Caption

Jack: The time frame of this picture I would suppose a trip to the woodshed would happen. The mistress might do the spanking, but the master of the house will do the spanking, the walk back from the woodshed willing to bet, her very red spanked bottom will be on display. 

KDPierre: Priscilla learned early that you don't need to break a sweat dusting if you're young, cute, and willing to spread your legs for your employer.

Bernie: "I wonder if the spanking will hurt as much as it says in the story. I hope so!"

 QBuzz: Maisey is about to find out that flashing your stocking-tops in an attempt to lure the master into your bed is a whippable offence in this household...
And then afterwards the master will take her to bed anyway!

Anon: The mistress's diary makes for fascinating reading, especially the parts about the many times and varying ways the master spanks, paddles and canes her ... not to mention what they get up to after he's warmed her bottom. I wish I could convince my boyfriend to take me in hand the way the master does the mistress.

Rosco: Fifi’s in for it, lolling about sans bloomers when there’s work to be done. She knows better, doesn’t she. Does she actually want her plump bottom whipped? So it seems.

Wendel: After I give Master Edward his 18th birthday spanking he can spread open his birthday present. 

Simon: How many times do I have to tell you young lady, it's a chaise longue not a chaise lounge, clearly I will have to spank you again.

Baxter: It is almost the weekend, when the master and mistress will add up my demerits. Once that is done, they will call me into the den, strip me, strap and paddle me and then we collapse into a menage a trois. Ooooh, I love the weekends.

Hermione: Why, mistress! Your diary contains some very revealing secrets. Now, about that raise...

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for November 8

What are your considerations when travelling with spanking implements?

Fred: If I am in the RV I can take anything with no worries. Travelling by air I usually take pervertables. Anyone inspecting my luggage would find brushes, wooden spoons, belts. 

Baxter: When we travel by air, I always wear a belt. I usually don't wear a belt with jeans, but I make this concession just so my wife has something handy to spank me with, because I typically do or say something that warrants a spanking. 

QBuzz: I agree, the thick leather belt around my waist is all the spanking implements we need when travelling :D 

Joe: I wear a wide belt as well but also have a wood paddle in my luggage. Let them think what they want.

Roz: My answer is a boring unfortunately. Travel doesn't happen that often so implements aren't really thought about when packing.

Barrel: We have a hair brush that travels with us when spanking may be possible. Additionally, a small, blue rubber slapper that she uses when she wants to carefully spank in tight areas. It is perfect in that it does not make too much noise and stings like crazy. Ideal when we cruise. 

Alan: My wife almost always has a hairbrush with her in the car (too large for her purse) and sometimes a paddle she keeps under her seat. We are pretty bold or lucky when flying as she routinely packs a paddle and a strap and we have never been asked about it. (Not in carry on though). I think Homeland Security must see plenty of disciplinary “tools”, so it is probably not much of a big deal for them. She rarely has to spank me when traveling but knowing her instruments of “ass- destruction” are handy explains some of that. 

Wendel: When air traveling we would pack a hair brush and paddle and attached a sticky note to each saying: "Used for Spanking". I was always hoping to open the suitcase at our destination and find that a TSA screener had added the comment: "Give it to her good". When traveling by car we pack whatever we want. Never know when a roadside spanking might be needed. 

Ronnie: P's taken different implements over the years. Green garden canes (which we leave behind) leather tawse, short cane and the rose leather paddle. He always seems to find something at the place we are staying to use.

Prefectdt: I travel in my campervan and it is always inspected when I travel on a ferry to the UK, so I never put obvious toys in there, just in case I forget to remove them before heading to a ferry terminal. At the back of the spare bed sheets cupboard I do keep a selection of pervertables. They are there so that they do not accidentally get used for anything else. They include some belts, a ruler, hair brushes and large spoons, wooden and silicone headed. I do worry that one day someone might enquire why someone as follically challenged as myself is in possession of three hair brushes though.

Graham: This is mostly an issue when one is taking public transportation of some form. Gone are the good ol' days when we could pack almost anything in checked baggage! Now when we're away it is usually the hand, a small hairbrush or a wide belt. All serve the purpose just fine when needed!

Bonnie: Ah, I miss travel. Maybe next year.

When we travel together for pleasure, we always pack implements. If we are traveling by car, the only limitations are practical ones. There is only so much room for luggage and even out of town, we don't want to haul a spanking bench into our hotel. Otherwise, a full complement of implements and sex toys go along.

When we fly, it's a different matter. Spankings still happen, of course, but they are more likely to involve pervertables. We have a curved handled solid wood brush that has punctuated quite a few vacations over the years. Ever resourceful, Randy has been known to find pervertables in the room or during our travels. I can attest that the little plastic rod used to adjust blinds really hurts when it strikes your bottom. 

Rosco: We’re traveling right now and didn’t bring anything as we’re staying with kids and grandkids after a few days' quarantine. But if there’s an opportunity, Irene might grab a leather belt or find something.

I’m not worried about what TSA might find. Who cares? But would be embarrassed if friends or especially family found out.

Hermione: Like Roz, we seldom travel. Our same-day excursions are within than an hour away from home, so bringing implements along is not something we need to do.

Jack: It is not a spanking tool, my wife brings brings the large hairbrush, bath brush does not pack well. Oh and she could care less if others hear me getting spanked in a hotel, she said it adds to the punishment.

Maybe next year, but in the meantime, stay safe!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #356

Welcome, one and all, to our regular weekend brunch. I think yesterday's news is cause for celebration. Three cheers for democracy!

Because of covid, travel is impossible for most of us. But it's nice to think about and plan for, tomorrow when the world is free (thank you Dame Vera).

When you travel, what spanking toys do you take with you? How do you make your choices of what to take? Do you have concerns about your luggage being inspected?

As always, please leave your response as a comment. Once everyone has had a chance to join in, I will publish an edited summary of our conversation.

It's just a matter of time until all the votes are counted and the rightful winner of the election is declared. We listen to a variety of radio stations all around the world via our laptop, and it always amazes me that the top item in every hourly news broadcast is the presidential race. The outcome matters to the whole world.

Let's have a little fun with a decidedly unfunny topic.
