Spanko Brunch 2.0 #368

It's time to talk about that ever-popular subject: spanking. But wait! Sometimes talking isn't as easy as it sounds. At one time or another, each one of us has failed to say what's on our mind or in our heart.

Is there something you have always wanted to say or confess to your spanking partner, but have been unable to, or haven't bothered to try? Is it a complaint or a kudo? Has this affected your spanking activity in any way? 

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

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for January 24

Has a spanking ever disappointed you?

Wendel: Not really. It is a spanking, my backend is sore, what's not to enjoy.
If the Misses complains about the quality of the spanking then I just spank her again. 

Roz: There have been a few occasions when a spanking wasn't quite enough, either in intensity or duration. If the spanking was of the fun variety I have happily moved on to other activities. If, however the spanking was for discipline or to reinforce our roles and it hasn't been enough I'm afraid I have been prone to being moody or pouty. We have had the odd do over. I think the difference is the emotions involved.

KDPierre: Absolutely. With several people too. The solution is simple enough, just be honest and say what you're thinking. I can't recall any time when such a confession didn't lead to a more satisfying conclusion.

Fondles: Definitely. Sometimes I have to tell BIKSS in advance that I'm feeling extra needy and could he possibly assist (read: don't go easy) in getting me back into the right emotional space.

Sometimes a combination of spanking and other activities / exercises help get me back in the right submissive mindset where the spanking itself would have been 'not enough'.

Jack: I wish that was the case, my wife insures that I'm finally just laying over lap and pleading, begging, and promising to be good. My bottom is stinging, very warm and I know red. My wife feels a spanking is not over until I stop my squirming and kicking and promising to be good.

Rosco: Of course. With 40 years of at least once a week, there’ll be a few hiccups. Two kinds:

We’ve been interrupted a few times.

Occasionally I’ll really crave a thorough spanking, but Irene will decide she’s ready for oral attention, after which she’ll want intercourse.

Ronnie: Yes there has. If the spanking hasn't been long or hard enough and I needed more, I have been known to cheek and say something like - I thought you were going to spank me and that leads to getting what I want a longer and harder spanking.

Barrel: Yep. In most of our sessions, which are intended to be prolonged and serious, I am left short of what I expected. I have told my wife that I could have gone longer. The usual response is that she got my backside to the color and texture that she wanted, and that was enough. She has said, “good to know”, leaving me thinking the next one might click up a notch, but I haven’t felt it yet. I do think it is all about communication and managing expectations.

Hermione: Not one spanking in particular, but a position. In my fantasies and erotic reading, OTK spankings figure prominently. But in actual fact, I found being placed across my husband's knee decidedly uncomfortable. I disliked having the blood rush to my head, and Ron's thighs don't have sufficient padding in spite of the extra my tummy has. So we quickly discarded that position, although it's still my favourite in theory.

And that's all, folks!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #367

Welcome back to another weekend discussion. We all enjoy spanking in one form or another -- or you wouldn't be reading this and I wouldn't be blogging about it -- but sometimes fantasy does not turn into reality.

Has there ever been a time when your need for a spanking fell far short of your expectations?  How did you deal with your dissatisfaction? Did you express your disappointment, and if so, how was it resolved?

Leave your response as a comment. I will publish an edited summary of our conversation once everyone has had the opportunity to join in.

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for January 17

When did you first express your fondness for spanking to someone?

Red: It had been many years before we actually talked about spanking. Cindy was aware I purchased spanking magazines, and they at that time were exclusively (99%) the woman being spanked, whether by a man or another woman. I also purchased Penthouse letters, then Variations, exclusively to read the spanking fiction, as you knew it was not real. I also purchased Janus, Februs, and Scarlett Hill, reading the man being spanked editions. I would hide them away so the children would not see them. Eventually, maybe 20 years ago, I suggested as foreplay that I spank Cindy, but that was not going to happen. As the internet became available, I moved into reading of the man being spanked, and found it equally stimulating. The Disciplinary Wives Club website gave me the courage to ask to be spanked, and slowly my being spanked started. I had Cindy read their website, and Aunt Kay's manuals, and slowly Cindy came to be agreeable to spank me.

Baxter: I first brought the subject up during the first year of our marriage in asking for my wife to spank me and she said no, that it was perverted. I was disappointed but my fantasies of spanking as spanker and spankee continued and I bought a bunch of spanking fiction books from Amazon. At one point, my wife asked to read one of them and I gave her a book by Fiona Locke. In reading it, she said she understood and told me to pull my pants down, hand her my leather belt and she gave me a spanking. Wow. so we were off to what was a slow start, but she has always spanked me when I asked. And it is in fun and she spanks me only in prime numbers, like 17 or 23 or 37, spanks. I wished that we could have done it earlier in our marriage and she said that also recently. Better late than never. 

Roz: Fairly early on in our relationship we were having a bit of a date night (favourite takeaways, a few drinks etc) and the subject just came up in conversation and we both expressed an interest in spanking. I can't for the life of me remember how the subject came up now.

Bonnie: Our first time occurred when Randy and I were college students. We had been dating for a couple months. We were playing in bed on a warm summer Saturday afternoon. A spontaneous experiment led to a simultaneous recognition - Spanking works for both of us!

Minielle: I’ve always, always secretly loved anything spanking. Old romance books had many a short scene or two... hubby threatened and did spank from the moment we began dating. It was haphazardly practised. However, when I found everyone here and really accepted it all—- I told hubby. He was happy to practise.

Wendel: It has been so long now that I do not really remember how it started. Just thankful the Misses enjoys being spanked and enjoys (maybe more) spanking me.

Fondles: My enjoyment of spanking I think is very much specific only to BIKSS, and he was a bit confused at first but he went online and read everything I sent him, and then some.

We started with some hand spanking and that went well. I gave a LOT of feedback and he asked a LOT of questions. And from there it was easy enough to move on to experimenting with different things, as we both do a lot of reading and talking about anything new before trying it.

I did have to work a little bit at convincing him to try the cane tho. LOL. (He had had a bad experience with it as a child, but in exploring it together it has given him the chance to see it in a different light, I'm guessing.)

Nena: I have always been interested in spanking, as long as I can remember.
My husband and I had been together for little over a year when I finally found the courage to tell him. He had a hard time with it, went through the 'but I love you, I don't want to hurt you' phase. I don't quite remember how this changed, but he got over that.
Things worked out quite well, together for 27 years now and he has no problem hurting me anymore at all, he actually enjoys spanking me :)

Jack: I dated older women, found them to be more open. One particular woman in her late 50's I was seeing,  was a lot of fun, but could be serious at times. Being older she knew I would do stupid things, part of being young she would say. We had been seeing one another a good six months and out of the blue she said there were times she wanted to give me a spanking. I said nothing at first, it was what I wanted to happen. 

We enjoyed the coast, rented a coastal home, visited it many times. We came back from going out to dinner, she was not happy, said little, and just went to bed. It was the next morning, I slept in, she was in the kitchen. I knew she was mad, and then I saw the hairbrush on the table. Young man you're getting a spanking. I just looked at her. I then said to her, go ahead, it should be fun, sexual foreplay I said, and I took off the underpants and stood naked, erect, smiling. Well once over her lap it was not funny, it was not sexual foreplay, that hairbrush hurt, landed hard, rapid spanks, I was kicking, squirming, saying enough and she said funny, sexual foreplay. When she finished, stood me up I was rubbing my bottom, she said no rubbing. Just stand there, no talking, should have spanked you when I wanted to. She left the room, came back with one of my spanking magazines. Disgusting she said, and then told me to get use to being spanked, no matter where. I dated her for another year, she said it was best I date more my age. It took awhile, found a wonderful girl my age. As for spankings, well it didn't take long to get a spanking from her.

Realblueeyes: Years ago when C and I were first dating I made some sort of smart ass remark and she said that one more remark like that and she would put me over her lap and show me who was boss. I dared her and in no time I was over her lap with my jeans down and she went to work. Life has not been the same since. We trade spankings both as play and sometimes punishment. They are simply a part of our life together. We have small circle of kinky friends with whom we sometimes share. C's mother knows about our fetish but does not participate though she thinks is a good idea to keep us both in line. She gave us a wonderful bath brush as an anniversary present. Spankings nearly always lead to some really intense after care which heals everything and really clears the air.

Barrel: I asked my girlfriend to spank me with her sorority paddle when we were in college. She obliged and that confirmed my need to be spanked. That relationship ended, and with it my spankings. My next relationship led to marriage, but she was pretty vanilla and I was reluctant to push her where she didn’t want to go. So I read the letters in Penthouse and Variations in an attempt to satisfy my kink. Two years into our marriage we moved to the South West (US) and down the street was a tack/equestrian store. I stopped in one day and bought a short riding crop and gave it to my wife, along with my encouragement to put it to use. She did, and the rest is 40 years of history.

KDPierre: With Rosa, pretty much right from the start which was easy since she had already expressed her own desire to be playfully smacked. When I suggested we try it with her as the spanker, she initially needed just a very short time to process the request. It took her a few minutes and a few questions to wrap her head around being the Top, but once she gave it a try it was like a whole world opened to her! She essentially always WAS a Top who even had sadistic thoughts, but her culture had so repressed the idea that she never allowed it to surface.

The way things ended up for us is where we have been ever since: her with an occasional sexual urge to be treated roughly and even lightly smacked but without any obedience or submission attached. Just sensation play for her, but an entire D/s relationship with her in charge as our 24/7 dynamic. She is utterly convinced we are both exactly where each of us should be and she has no guilt or hesitation in doling out a punishment spanking FAR more lengthy, serious, and severe than anything she would allow to happen to herself.

The key for me has always been to never hold back on confessing my need and desired role to anyone I have ever been seriously involved with. Anything less would be disastrous.

Morningstar: My story might be just a little bit different. About 10 years ago I was without a partner and dearly missing spanking. A friend convinced me to go on a blind date he arranged (he was there too) at a BDSM play party. Sir Steve and his then wife both played with me - and continued to play with me for quite a few months. 

Fast forward 10 years and Sir Steve and I are now together ... and picked up our spanking story from where we left over. 

Rosco: Jeez, what a question. Sorry, but I’ll give 5 answers, the last being the important one.

I was shy and inexperienced but obsessed with spanking. Unsure if I was a top or bottom. I met a girl at the beach. We wandered away from a nighttime bonfire, and were flirting by play wrestling. At one point she kicked me between the legs - not super hard, but hard enough to get my attention. I turned her over and spanked her bottom, with her panties showing below her short shorts. She kicked again and I spanked again, harder. Then a third time, which was followed by a different sort of physical contact.

A few years later I had a girlfriend who professed to be open minded, and was in some ways. I asked her to spank me. She thought it was weird and told me so. The experience set me back.

Another girlfriend was taking off her belt as she undressed, held it up and said “this is my whip”. I blinked and missed the chance.

With yet another, who had a muscular chubby bottom, I took a chance and put her over my knee for some sharp slaps. She told me she didn’t think she liked it and we moved on. This time I didn’t feel bad.

After a few months with Irene, now my wife of many decades, I raised the subject. She had no interest in being spanked, but would be happy to spank me. So she did. It was a few months before she got sufficiently aggressive, but we’ve taken it into all kinds of powerful experiments, role playing etc. everything went up a notch after the kids left home. At this point, I’d say Irene is more committed to spanking as an important prelude to sexual activity than I.

Hermione:  I told my husband all about my interest in spanking and asked him to spank me. He obliged, but told me I was sick and perverted. After our divorce, I met Ron, and was hesitant about confessing my desire a second time. Luckily, Ron took matters into his own hands and initiated a spanking. We haven't looked back since.

Thank you all for sharing your stories. Stay safe and keep your distance!

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for January 10

What was the longest period of time you have gone without spanking?

Fred: The longest without a spanking? NOW! Unfortunately I am separated from my usual play friends, lockdown in the UK (plague Island) plus my ongoing medical issues means I have to stay isolated for my own safety and theirs. So, no spankings since September 2020. Big plans once lockdown is lifted and I have had my two shots.
Stay safe everyone.

Bonnie: Our longest break occurred almost forty years ago. Randy didn't want to spank me while I was pregnant because he didn't want to risk harming our baby. The break lasted almost a year! By the end of this time, we were both itching for some percussive fun.

Domhnall: The last time I was able to visit with my Disciplinarian was in February, 2020. Life changing events and the Pandemic have completely prevented any spanking activity. I have no idea when I will be able to begin again. Not good!!!

Minielle: Hi Hermione, we’ve had some natural breaks due to health but always manage to gently play when we can. Even with words.
Although during the years prior to admitting and embracing my desires.... it was hit, or miss! Lol;)

Roz: Hi Hermione, our dynamic has evolved numerous times over the years and there have been a number of breaks. Some due to life stresses and changes, some natural breaks and periods where certain aspects of our dynamic worked well but others didn't for one or both of us.

We have gone a couple of years (I think) without spanking. Now we don't have an active dynamic and spanking activities are purely for fun and are spasmodic.

morningstar: Longest break??? I'm thinking a few months, due to health and/or lack of play partners. I don't much like breaks (grinning) and am hoping there aren't any breaks in our future :)

Wendel: We stop spanking when we are sick. The longest was 10 days. I got sick, then the Misses got sick. She blamed me for passing it to her so once better she gave me one hell of a paddling. I was sore for two days. 

The Misses was stressing out over the assualt on the Capital. I believe democracy will continue therefore the spankings will continue. I whipped her bare bottom with the belt Thursday to reassure her that all be ok and followed up Friday and Saturday morning with spankings. The Misses went to bed tonight complaining that her bottom is still sore. If she keeps it up tomorrow I am going to spank her again. 

Fondles: it's been so long without a spanking in these parts, a year? It seems forever. The house isn't conducive to spanking at the moment... and vacations have been out of the question (thanks to Covid), so we'll just have to wait I suppose.

Prefectdt: The longest break that I have ever had happened in the 1990's and lasted a bit over four years. I do not want to say why as it involves another party, who I cannot hold at fault and do not want to incriminate. It ended after a psychologist, that I had been seeing for some time, finally got me talk about my spanko activities past and we traced the start of my problems back to when I had given up spanking. I had no network and so employed the services of a professional, for the first time in my life and had my life sorted out and stopped the medication that I had needed for some time in about six months.

Barrel: I think our longest break has been 3 months, which we just completed. It was driven by my annual physical, prostate cancer and need for another biopsy (ugly procedures). My wife loves to use her hairbrush which has a ribbed back that leaves striped marks when sternly applied. Those marks can take up to 4 weeks to fade. I didn’t want any residual marks when I exposed my tush for the physical and prostate biopsy, plus the week wait for the results in case I needed surgery. The good news, for the fifth time is no cancer progression so watchful waiting continues, for which I am elated. And I’m pretty happy to be spanked regularly again.

Hermione: We stopped once for approximately 18 months. The reason was our new rescue dog. He hated being crated - barked and cried when he was - and that was too disruptive for us to enjoy ourselves. So we put our afternoon spankings on hold. After Ron's mom died, we visited her apartment on several weekends to organize and dispose of her belongings. That also gave us the privacy to resume spankings. We couldn't imagine stopping again, and we didn't have to. Our dog had finally learned that being in a crate wasn't so bad, and we had the peace and quiet we needed.

Thank you to all who responded. Stay safe and wear your masks!

It's hard to feel cheerful after this terrible week, so help yourself to whatever medicinal aids you need. Maybe a good discussion about spanking will help us all clear our minds and reset our emotions.

Twelfth Night

Today is the twelfth day of Christmas, also known as the feast of the Epiphany which commemorates the visit of the magi to the Christ child in Bethlehem. While the image above is a kinky version the popular song The Twelve Days of Christmas, I also came across a hilarious vanilla version, presented by the late Irish singer, writer and actor Frank Kelly.

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for January 3

Do you have implements that show signs of wear and tear?

morningstar: Lordie - what a topic!! I am sitting here grinning thinking 'do I do it in alphabetical order or just random'??

I have had more than a few toys break on me - 2 wooden paddles, 3 canes, and a flogger (a cheap one) fall apart.

As for normal wear and tear -- I have a suede flogger whose falls are not so suede anymore - it's been worn off.

Have a flogger that used to have small metal beads on each fall - all the beads have gone, some flying across the room.

Have a leather strap with split ends -- and one of the splits is dangerously close to coming completely off.

and a couple of leather tawse that are absolutely limp now.

I do seem to be hard on my 'toys'... the joys of living with a Sadist :) (it helps I'm a masochist).

Roz: We don't have many implements left at the moment, apart from the sturdy wooden spoon and leather paddle. The rest have already worn out or broken lol. Hmm, time to indulge in the new year sales perhaps.

Anon: No real spankings for me. All of my implements are in pristine condition.:(

Barrel: Yep! We have a 27” black riding crop that I bought probably 40 years ago when we started to explore this realm. It has been used extensively and now the leather piece at the end is quite frayed. Now that I think about it, that is directly the result of the welts it has left on my backside over all those years.

Our leather strap and tawse get treated with either neatsfoot oil or leather conditioner a couple of times a year to ensure flexibility, so they are showing no effects of their use.

I looked at the back of the hairbrush and don’t see any loss in the sheen of the lacquer which surprises me as that gets the most frequent and vigorous use.

Wendel: A few years ago I bought Mickey Mouse spatulas just to spank the Misses. One looked like Mickey's glove and the other was a mouse ear shaped tip with Mickey's face on it. They gave the Misses a heck of a sore red bottom but the handles broke after a few uses. All the other items seem to holding up good. 

QBuzz: Our favourite spanking belt had to be retired from day-to-day wear, and is now exclusively used for spanking bottoms. It is still functional in both senses, but it is showing signs of heavy wear, and we'd hate for it be damaged in a way that meant we couldn't use it anymore.

Bonnie: Most of our unworthy implements were vanquished years ago. Those that replaced them were constructed from tougher materials, tougher than my bottom, that is.

Those cute 3/8" pine novelty paddles from the roadside tourist trap are just fond memories. I used to take great pleasure in outlasting those spanking implement wannabees. It was less amusing when my 1970s authentic sorority paddle snapped earlier this year. But we have a whole chest full of sturdy alternatives.

Then there are the inevitable pervertibles. Anything in the house that could be used to heat my bottom has been used, and probably more than once if it didn't break the first time. These can usually be easily replaced so it's a minor inconvenience when they break and Randy has to go find a trusty solid wooden hairbrush.

Prefectdt: I wish that my toys had the chance to get extended or excessive use but they do not and are all in good condition.

Several years ago I had to put my cane collection on the barbecue but that was because they were so old that I had purchased them from actual school shops in the UK, in a time when they still stocked such items.

A: Our "implements" are our hands* and so the answer is...yes?
Repair? More like refurbishment! Got any suggestions?

* On VERY RARE occasions a hairbrush or belt has been substituted. They may have worn out, but not because of THAT!

Bernie: Excessive use? Yes, especially in the moments when they are being applied with vigor to my bottom.

Ronnie: P recently had a clear out of old/damaged toys so all ours are now in good order.

Hermione: Our dogging bat needed some glue applied to the handle end, because the stiffening rod in the centre kept working its way out. We also have a rattan carpet beater that broke and has been repaired. Most of our implements are of good quality and show no sign of wearing out.

Thank you all for revealing your implement secrets. Until next time, stay safe!

You Finished this Sentence

My hope for 2021 is...

Anon 1: ...that it is the year I finally get to spank and be spanked for real! 

Glenmoretales: ...that Covid 19 is a thing of the past like measles and polio by spring. 

PK: ...that politics becomes so calm and normal (boring) that I don't know the names of the cabinet members or the attorney general, and I can stop waking up with dread of what may have been tweeted during the night. 

Rosco: ...I can once again hug my family, friends and neighbors. And I’d like to lose a little weight and work more productively. And wish a certain child would return to our city.

Ronnie: ...that the vaccine gets rolled out quickly and we can all get back to some kind of normality. To travel again would be nice.

Prefectdt: ...that all of us in rich western countries have learnt from this year's events that we do not have a magical immunity to the things that usually happen in Farawayandusuallypoorerthanusland. Neither medical political or social.

Barrel: ...a return to civility and respect. Furthermore, I wish for less partisan politics in the US, replaced by true patriots.

Bonnie: ...that we all survive intact and healthy to witness the arrival of 2022. I am willing to wait for hugs and dinners out, but I just don't want to lose any more friends without so much as a goodbye. 

Minelle: ...that I will be able to hug and kiss family and friends once again! That no more lives are lost to Covid or that those long haulers feel better soon! 

Baxter: ...a wish for the vaccine to get widely distributed, that my wife and I get the vaccine, that I can figure out Medicare, and that we can travel with our trailer all over the USA. I wish for a certain person to just go away and for the new prez to be successful. Oh yes, I get regularly spanked. 

Red: ...that everyone try to stay happy, no matter what 2021 brings. 

Roz: ...a wish for covid and a certain individual to be a thing of the past so that the world can return to 'normal' but without losing the lessons in humanity covid has taught us.

Terpsichore: ...a return to kindness and peace and that everyone can fulfill their lives they were meant to live to its fullest. 

Joe: ...that all the wishes come true. A Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone. 

mornongstar: find some peace in my hear.

Wendel: put Covid in its place so we can go back to gathering in crowds and so we can stop showing everything as a Zoom chat. I hope for a calming peace once a certain orange jackass is replaced. And finally I hope to get spanked silly often.

Hermione: ...that everyone will adjust to the new normal, and masks will become the new fashion statement.

May all our hopes and wishes come true! See you all at brunch, coming up next.
