Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for December 25

How does spanking fit into your holiday traditions?

amber: With the family about 1800 miles away, Christmas vacation is pretty much the only time we can get together with them.

So aside from a very very rare chance with time to ourselves, (I am supposedly sorting out my email right now in our assigned room!) our sex and spanking life gets put on hold until we return home.

The tradition the last 10 years has pretty much been ripping our clothes off as soon as possible and having some savage sex for awhile.

Then after a meal and usually a nap, we open up our kinky type presents. Mike will have made a lovely Christmas theme wood paddle that I have not seen yet. He will get some kind of lingerie, a new sex toy, whatever he thinks of. I will get something that I know he likes like some new colored candles or a sexy BDSM type movie or mix DVD of several. I will have planned a special meal before we left, maybe even had most of it made and frozen.

We christen the new paddle with a nice hard long way overdue spanking that leads to a long sex session.

Later at dinner I usually dress as some kind of slave or serving wench or something and serve dinner, usually with multiple "mistakes" of some silly kind and get whacked for them.

At bedtime, he lets me pick whatever I want to be spanked with as long as I want. Which is almost always a leather paddle and a nice long progressive session that a few times he has asked isn't that enough yet lol.

Then quite awhile later we finally sleep and that is pretty much our belated but very satisfactory Christmas tradition.

Roz: Merry Christmas to you, Ron and family Hermione. I hope you have a wonderful day :) No special holiday spanking traditions here.

Blondie: Spankings are always a great way to deal with the holiday stress. Merry Christmas to you and Ron.

Baxter: We are doing the twelve days of Christmas except in our case it is the twelve days of spanking, wife spanking me. First year we have done it. Fun!

Dr. Ken: Since I don't have a lady in my life to spank, the holiday is pretty much just another vanilla day.....

Ronnie: No special holiday traditions in our house.

Yorkie: We usually don't have an opportunity for spanking most times and even less during Christmas. As our families visit during the day we are usually knackered by bed time so even sex can be a stretch. But, who knows? I might get lucky this time.

Peter: My wife recently began what she called preventative spanking. An hour before my company's Christmas Party, I was given a reminder spanking to behave and not to drink too much or get too loud. It worked. I had a good time.

Saturday before going to my sister and brother in laws for Christmas Eve my wife again reminded me with a harsh over the knee session to behave and not get into an argument with BIL. At thanksgiving he and I had ayelling match about politics. Well again the evening went well. I was warned again if i misbehaved i would get double the count when we got home.

I was an angel. Granted an angel who had to sit with caution.

Hermione:  We were pretty busy this year so no spankings on the big day, but Ron has plans to make up for that omission. Each year I give Ron a new spanking implement and on New Year's Day he experiments with it. This year it was a leather fly swatter. Ron unwrapped and examined it, then said, "This will really hurt." We'll see!

Thank you all for taking the time during this busy season to come to brunch.

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #156

The holidays are upon us once more, and what holiday celebration would be complete without a special Christmas / Hanukkah / Festivus spanko brunch?

Does spanking play a part in your holiday festivities? Do you celebrate with an unusual or special type of spanking? Or are the days so busy that spanking must be postponed until a later date?

Leave your response as a comment and I will publish a summary of our discussion once everyone has had a chance to digest their festive meal.

Simon: Little did Santa realise that he'd fallen for a classic trick and that his sleigh was currently being taken to a different kind of workshop where it would be repainted and exported for sale.

Baxter: There are strict requirements to be an elf as I have to check out the applicants very carefully. Now you have a nice bottom, how about a little spanking to see if it becomes a Christmas acceptable shade of red, shall we?

Anon: Very nice wrapping for your cute spankable bottom. Should I unwrap it here or should I wait, it is so cute and wanting a spanking, I cannot wait, my hands won't be cold for long.

Her: "Are you the real Santa?"
Him: "As real as those boobs, honey."

Hands63: I wish more folks would leave "cookies" like this for me!

Katie: I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,
Over by the climbing tree outside!
She leaned against the tree,
Then was spanked over his knee!
She looked like she was having fun, and I wondered what she'd done.

Then I saw Santa spanking Mom some more,
Her bottom appeared to be no longer white!
Oh, that's nothing I should see,
I'll never sneak down by that tree,
It ruined his image for me,
I saw Santa spanking Mom today.

amber: Ok, ok,  you win. You made the naughty list. I will see you Saturday night with a brand new paddle and your bottom will be as red as those scandalous shorts.

Dr. Ken: Her name was Cyndi Rudolph, and Santa decided that she would lead his sleigh by flying backwards this year....

Red: Proof positive that Santa is definitely a thigh man, and not a spanker, as his mitts are not patting her sweet bottom.

arched one: Santa, my bottom is so cold out here could you please warm it up for me.

Sir Wendel:
Mandy: Am I on the naughty or nice list?
Santa: Doesn’t matter. You’re getting a spanking.

Hermione: Are you sure you really want a hippopotamus for Christmas instead of a spanking? The sleigh is overloaded as it is.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

From the Top Shelf - Christmas Present

I have a lovely gift for you today - a charming story from Spanking Theatre. It begins like this:

There is a message within a message in every handwritten note, a subtle impression of the writer’s soul. Here, her handwriting wrote with the elegant fluency that only comes from the heart, the ebony stream flowing from her fountain pen slowly transcribing a secret she’d never ever dared reveal. How could a small rectangle of plain white card ever hope to contain something of such importance?

It made her shiver to see her secret written out so explicitly in an undulating line of black on white. It was as if her private fantasy had finally escaped from the gilded cage in which she had kept it hidden all these years. She was beginning to realise that on this little piece of card she had inscribed a magic spell, and those twenty-four words were imbued with the power to change her entire world. That was scary.

And also, she had to admit to herself, rather exciting.

Tinsel and baubles glimmered in the candlelight. She was sitting at the dining room table, alone for the evening, a chance to wrap Christmas presents for the nearest and dearest. One present had particular significance, it was the one into which she’d slip the note she was writing. But only if she was bold enough.

A lump of sanded driftwood occupied the middle of the table, a platform for the tall fat candle that illuminated the room, its warm brightness complementing the colourful glow of the Christmas tree fairylights. She looked into the flickering flames, turning the little card between her fingers. Over and over. Prevaricating, hesitating. Reading and re-reading what she’d written, checking the spelling, wondering if she’d said enough, or far too much, feeling the cool sharp points of the card’s crisp corners tingle her fingertips.

“My love,” it began.

“I’ve been fascinated by spanking since I was a girl.”

“I long for it, I crave it.”

“Please. Will you spank me?”

You must read the rest here. Merry Christmas!

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for December 18

Our topic was changes in sensitivity, and you had this to say:

Dan: For me, the number one determining factor on how much it hurts is how long it has been since the last spanking. It's the Catch-22: I would prefer to avoid disciplinary spankings as long as possible, but then when one happens it hurts so much worse if it has been a long time since the last one.

Hobbes: Agree with Dan: it is a case of familiarity and repetition. The more frequent the more tolerance I develop and then when nothing happens for a long time I lose that tolerance/insensitivity. Right now she is off for three weeks traveling and when she returns it will take a few spankings to get back to "full length and strength."

Hands63: Agreed, time between spankings/paddlings has a big effect on the level of discomfort. I also find that I'm much more sensitive to a spanking that is given unexpectedly rather than one I was anticipating. I'm also getting older and can't handle them like I used to.

Downunder Don: The biggest factor for Mumski is her preparedness for the spanking. Because she initiates most spankings she is mentally prepared so seems to be willing and able to accept a harder and longer session than an unplanned one.

sam: The hardest spankings are when she insists i masturbate first, then immediately after she will spank me. It hurts more because there is no erotic attachment with it. No fantasy to escape to!

Roz: I agree with the others, length of time between spankings. Also my mood and mindset at the time effects my tolerance level.

arched one: I don't have much experience in this field as she likes to keep me well spanked. But I would tend to agree with the others judging what my spankings felt like when we started this. It could also be is the spanker getting a longer or harder swing?

missy: I agree with what has already been said. Frequency, mood and mindset. I find that if there is a buildup it also helps. Most of our spankings are erotic so Sir builds up slowly and can push me further and further as we go. But if we do it more often then I can take more much more quickly. Sometimes I just need it too and that also feels different. I don't feel that I have a tolerance for it really as it becomes part of me. A punishment spanking would be totally different, however.

Yorkie: This is a curious one. A few years ago, when I was spanked more often I used to have times when I'd have what I call "sensitive" moments. But these days, my spankings are few and far between but despite this I don't think my tolerance has decreased at all. Every spanking is the same as far as what I can take. My most recent spanking was only 2 weeks ago and it was a doozy. I was marked and bruised (lightly, not horrifically!) For a few days but I feel I could have taken a lot more but I stopped so my bottom was saved and to save my wife from boredom. I took 60 swats/strokes each from my OTK strap, 18 inch everready rattan cane, short handled bath brush, long handled bath brush and the smack stick senior. It was a very intense experience, possibly the most intense I've ever had.
I can't explain it, it's just the way it is. I guess the short story is I don't think I have "sensitive" days any more.

Pearl: I am absolutely more sensitive the longer time we have in between spankings. I do notice though that if he continues through and takes a bit more time warming me up, the sensitivity becomes a none issue.

Shawn: Susan my wife determines how much the spanking will last, meaning after the spanking is done. I was looking for a woman to be in charge and Susan is who I found and love so much. Spankings are suppose to hurt, but it is not always when you are finally over her lap and your bare bottom is feeling the hand and hairbrush, it is prior to, the wait. I depending on how "naughty" I've been, her words, will wait in the bedroom naked to think about what I did, or to stand before her, getting scolded like a child and having her pull down my pants and underpants. You feel so little at these times. I face the wall after the spanking, does not matter if someone drops in, part of my punishment. My mother-in-law was the one who first gave me a spanking, took me from bed, over her lap and bare my bottom. She seeing me for the first time after Susan had addressed the problem, said the bottom was not red enough and solved that and the next time she visited gave Susan a nice large hairbrush and that gets my attention quickly. Susan does the spanking and this naughty little boy knows better than to say he had enough, she will determine what is enough for this naughty little boy.

Anon: The person who mentioned about masturbating prior to a spanking, been there, only thing is my wife has her own way of dealing with my erection. I must kneel on a towel in the bathroom, hold my penis, she scolds me and reminds me little boys do not enjoy the spanking, it was not meant to be enjoyable. I then must preform for her and she insures I make it last. Once done, I stand and with soap and water she cleans me off, takes the towel to the washer and the me to the front room. I'm naked already and she does spank my bottom on the way. Trust me a spanking after masturbating is the worse, legs kick, pleading, finally crying and dancing around the room until told to face the wall. Our sex life is great, but it has no place when it comes to a spanking.

Ronnie: I agree with what other have said. Depends on my mood, mindset and how long between spankings. I'm more sensative if it's been a while since I've been spanked.

Leigh: As with others, it depends on the mood and length of time between spankings. I'm not sure the implement hurts any more one time than another. Of course, it's been so long, I really can't say

Bogey: Bacall has no idea why the sting varies. She is spanked often and never knows when she will have a sensitive day or be bullet proof. She is always disappointed when she can not take a "good" spanking.

I am more even. I find that as I have aged, I no longer want a lot of licks.

Hermione: For me, my tolerance has built up over the years. But if I have gone more than a week without being spanked, I find my tolerance has dropped considerably.

Thank you to all who joined in this week!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #155

Welcome one and all to another spanko brunch. I think we can all agree that spankings hurt, and some implements can cause more pain than others. But does how much they hurt change over time?

Have you or your partner noticed that a spanking hurts more at some times than it does at others, regardless of the implement being used? How do you account for this change in sensitivity?

From the Top Shelf - Teenage Shoplifters

I love reading the old letters published in Janus magazine, ostensibly written by mature women looking back on their punishments at school. Some of the letters are obviously fictional but there are others which, given the time the events occurred, have a ring of truth about them. This is such a letter and it takes place just after the last war when there was still a belief that naughty girls and boys could be punished by any adult who felt wronged by their behaviour.

I attended a girls boarding school, not too far from Oxford, from about 1951 to 1955. We were allowed into town each day dressed in our uniform of grey gym tunic with powder blue blouses and, in summer, straw hats. We used to roam the shops and I am ashamed to say that minor shoplifting was rife, particularly of sweets which had just come off the ration. One shop in particular was very easy to steal from and we always took handfuls of sweets when we we walked out of the shop.

One Friday at about 4pm, my best friend Jean and I did just this, the shop door closed and we were safe and free - until a firm, heavy hand landed on my shoulder, gripping the tunic shoulder strap. We both swung round thinking it was one of our chums, but we were wrong. We saw the shop owner in her white coat and knew the game was up.

A well spoken middle aged lady turned us both round and marched us back to the shop and up a side alley into a rear entrance to the stock room. The door was shut and locked, our two tunic pockets were turned inside out, revealing two large piles of boiled sweets and no money to pay for them. Jean and I both started to cry, never having been caught before. We both owned up, and asked her to forgive us. We begged her not to tell the school or our parents, and under her questioning we both admitted having stolen from her before, dozens of times, but of course she well knew this.

The lady had no intention of telling the police. She said she had been waiting for us to appear that day; waiting and watching carefully what we got up to. She suggested that if we wanted to avoid the shame of exposure to the police, the school and our parents that we accepted appropriate punishment from her. The alternative was awful so what could we do?

Jean was taken to the next room, a stockroom with bars at the window, and the door was locked. I was told to remove my tunic, and while I did so, the lady produced a long thin yellow cane. I felt sick and giddy. Only once before had I had the cane, as a nine year old at school in Egypt - three strokes across my bottom in front of the class for cheating in a test.

The lady looked long and hard at me. She asked me about my parents and what would they think of their daughter, and I was close to tears. "You bloody little fool," she said, "the trouble you will cause those who love you if you go on in this way." Then she ordered me to bend right across the table and hold onto the edges. Next I felt her grip my cotton school-regulation knickers and peel them down, inside out. I was completely bare-bottomed, my blouse right up around my neck, and I felt so ashamed I started crying again.

What followed next was the most awful experience of my life. Twelve cane strokes landed on my bare bottom, each one harder than the one before. If I leapt up then I was forced back down. She lifted the cane shoulder high. It cut like a knife and stung like a thousand hornets as the stripes criss-crossed my chubby teenage cheeks, and I shouted and screamed as she lambasted me. Eventually it stopped. I stood up, weeping and clutching my bottom, then she grabbed me by the hair, marched me to the door with my knickers still down around my ankles and threw me out, followed by my tunic, shouting "Don't you EVER enter this shop again!" and slammed the door. The cold air met my bottom and I saw people walking past the end of the narrow alley, looking up and giggling at me as they passed. I pulled up my knickers, and put on my tunic as quickly as possible. I was surrounded by boxes and piles of rubbish.

What should I do about Jean? Then I heard her cry out.

I heard all her strokes. I heard her shouting, begging for forgiveness at the top of her voice, sobbing and squealing with pain. I heard the cane land again and again. Suddenly the door flew open and Jean was pushed out, falling over, face down, with her knickers in a tangle around her ankles into the pile of cardboard boxes, the woman following her out and applying one final stroke across her scarlet bottom as she lay upended in the rubbish. Then the lady went back in and slammed the door.

Jean was almost hysterical and incapable of doing anything. She lay there looking indecent and I dressed her as best I could, and we both hobbled slowly across the road to a park where we hid behind a park-keeper's hut, both sobbing our hearts out, two very different girls to the two cocky shoplifters twenty minutes earlier.

We inspected our marks. We made ourselves presentable and regained some self-composure, then returned to school. No tea for us that night, we were too late. In prep after tea, we had to sit at our desks for two hours and it was sheer hell! Next day we were too stiff and sore to move, but we dared not tell anyone. We did gym and games, being unusually shy in the changing rooms, but thank God it was not swimming or the tell-tale marks would have shown. The marks lasted for almost two weeks.

We never told a soul, but the next term we both heard odd whispers of other girls being caught and punished when caught stealing, in that and other shops in the town.

I realised later that this was the shop-keeper's preferred way of punishing children caught stealing; far better than reporting us to the school where we would probably have been caned anyway as well as incurring a mark on our academic records, or to the police. But she was silly to lay the cane on so hard, she might well have damaged a younger child. I never stole anything again in my life so the treatment was effective. If ever I get married and have children then I would certainly cane them if I ever caught them stealing

Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for December 11

Which do you prefer: leather or wood?

Roz: My preference is definitely leather. Wood hurts! lol. Having said that however there are times when I want to feel the sting of wood. Ultimately nothing beats the hand...flesh on flesh.

For both of us different implements and leather or wood have their place. I think it depends more on the mood than the reason for the spanking.

Jan: Hi Hermione, Leather, preferably a belt...

Domhnall The Second: My wife starts me off with her hand, then a Leatherthorn beavertail paddle, and she finishes the experience with a heavy wooden paddle. The wooden implement is by far the most painful. Thankfully, I have been warmed up beforehand.

Welcome, Domhnall!

abby: I am positively a leather girl; Master is a "paddle man". We have been this way since we first met, over 15 years ago. One exception is Master's whip. He loves it, me not so much.

Cat: Wood is no good,
Leather is better,
Feathers are best!
And whatever you do...
Stay away from acrylic!

amber: Hello. It is nice to meet you. I came across this blog and it looks like fun. I hope to have the time to go back thru it and have a good read.

I love both. It provides a very nice variety.

My boyfriend makes some very lovely wood paddles for special occasions, christmas, valentines day, my birthday, as well as whenever he feels like he wants something new. I think half the excitement for me is that he has taken the time and effort to make something that he knows will give me such pleasure.

That being said, I absolutely love leather. The times I can have orgasms from spanking alone (meaning no vibes, fingers, etc) has come from being over his lap with a leather paddle.

I love the feel, the smell, the sound of leather. Not just spanking but clothing as well. If I could afford it, 90% of my closet would be leather skirts, corsets, boots, etc.

I guess my least favorite is lexan and rubber. But, Mike likes it for some more variety and some of the different marks he says that they leave. It brings him pleasure so I don't mind occasionally getting whacked with them.

I guess I can say that leather edges out wood a little, but I am glad to have lots of both :)

Welcome, amber! Please drop in anytime to read or comment.

pete: I prefer the brush. It is compact and stings like hell. However I seldom have a choice.
We always start with 50 with the brush. If it is more serious infraction it may be belt, paddle and /or cane. Or any combination of these stated.

The cane leaves nasty marks that are hard to hide in the locker room But as she says then don't misbehave.

Yorkie: I love my wooden implements. I have a short, 18" rattan cane, a short handled bath brush, a long handled bath brush, and a small 1/4" thick paddle. They are all divine. They all hurt, which is the point of a spanking is it not?
Having said that, I also have a short OTK leather strap that I could take all day. Oh, and a Cane-iac smack stick senior which is polyurethane and absolutely brutal.
I guess, after all that rambling my favourites are the wooden ones. Sigh...

Happy Spankings

Michael M: I am happy to receive either at the hands of my wife and mistress. I steel myself to take the hard strokes of the long paddle with holes and I relish being over a pile of pillows for the caress of London Tanners strap.

Simon: I don't really have a preference for one material over the other as it depends on the implement. I love the cane with it's sharp sting but hate wooden paddles or spoons. With leather straps and paddles I enjoy some but dislike others. Actually I'm quite happy to have almost anything applied to my bottom as it is the person applying it who is the most important component.

Dr. Ken: A good leather implement gets my vote. I really like the stuff from the London Tanners....

Bogey: Both wood and leather are highly variable in sting. Both can hurt, so I feel it unfair to make a call based on limited experience with one. That said I have a fetish for wood. Bacall was once a leather fan, but now prefers wood.

Leigh: Definitely leather - IMHO wood hurts more.

Ronnie: Leather gets my vote and especially the Leather Thorn paddle. Not too keen on our leather strap though.

Baxter: I like a wooden paddle and wooden spoon. But I also got on Amazon a short riding plastic crop that my wife - AKA my dominatrix - loves to use. But she will use the paddle also.

A.J. I have been a bare hand fan forever; giving or receiving. The couple times wood was used (by her on me) were never intended to be hard as we only play, but I learned then that wood can hurt - A LOT!!! Only one other time did I get wood, unexpected and FOR REAL, and that lesson came home again. Whoever wields it better know what they are doing.

But if I had to choose (as the recipient) leather or wood - I vote leather. It gives. Travels better, too.

PS: I was Xmas shopping in Nordstrom's this week. In house goods, etc. They had a paddle shaped "cheese board" for sale, with a groove cut into one side. There were two sizes, both about 1/2" thick.
The smaller and more than capable for use other than holding cheese, was 4 1/2" x 17 1/2".
The larger was a fearsome and WHOPPING 5 1/2" x 25" (more than 2-feet!) that could cover an entire tush with a single swat! Was $14.99 and $24.99. Now: $8.98–$14.98!! Such a deal! Buy them both! Buy two of each!

The smaller made me think. The larger, however...!!!!

In the back of my mind I wondered if Nordstrom's is aware of the alternative uses their customers can put into 'service' of home products like that! (There were three women looking at them when I was there.)

Bonnie: I don't generally get to choose spanking implements, but I would say it depends upon several factors - the purpose of the spanking, how much time we have, our moods, what's close at hand, and so forth. Randy likes to mix things up so we don't "get stuck in a rut." If there is a pattern to his selections, I haven't discovered it.

On Friday evening, I received a bit of everything and that's just fine.

Hermione: I have a love/hate relationship with both. We have some wooden implements that are really awful, but as Yorkie said, that's the point of a spanking. Then there are otehrs, like the ping pong paddle, that are fun, noisy, but not too hard to take.

We have leather straps that are long, wide and nasty, as well as some that are short, thick, and just right! I guess if I must state a preference, it would be for leather - most notably the Leatherthorne rose paddle.

Well, that was fun! Let's do it again next week!

Spanko Brunch 2.0 #154

You are all invited to join in another spanking discussion right now! Spanking implements come in many shapes, sizes, colours and textures, but the original weapons of ass destruction were usually one of two natural materials.

Which do you prefer: wood or leather? Does your spanking partner agree with your preference? Have these preferences changed over time? Does the preference change depending on the reason for the spanking?

Leave your response as a comment, and I will publish a summary of our discussion after everyone has had a chance to contribute.

You Completed the Caption

Ronnie: If only. A girl can dream, can't she?

Baxter: I can't wait for her to be done spanking that girl and start in on me.

kdpierre: Haunted by specters and eerie spanking noises in the night, Belinda promptly delivered a bratty taunt via her Ouija Board, pulled down her panties, and waited hopefully.

ricky: I agree with Ronnie. Makes me think of the Everly Brothers' hit, way back when:
"All I have to do, is dream, dream, dream . . . "

Dr. Ken: The picture in her living room told Bob all he needed to know......well, that, and the way she was posed....

Leigh: If only...

Anon: Her bratty behavior had led to a fight that morning with her new husband, who'd stormed off to work, mumbling that he wished he knew what to do to keep his wayward bride in line. After he'd left, she'd called her mother, who promised to straighten him out. Her husband had called her as he was leaving work and said that after speaking with her mother, he knew exactly what their marriage needed and that when he got home he was going to "put her in her place" and give her the "good talking to" her mother had recommended. As she prepared herself for his arrival, tingling in anticipation of what was about to happen, she reflected on the many spankings she'd received from her mother, (and the many time's she'd heard her father give her mother a "good talking to"), and was very thankful that she'd soon be in "her place," across her husband's lap, as his firm hand emphatically communicated his "talking" points to her bare bottom.

js666: And then there was that time I broke a lamp and told Mama that Maisie did it.

Sir Wendel: Nothing beats a good spanking.

Hermione: Madeleine didn`t mind that the house was haunted. The ghosts were her kind of people!

Friday FAIL

Dogs are great to have around, but sometimes there's a down side.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
