Recap: MBS Sunday Brunch for June 10


Our subject this week was bratting. Here are your thoughts and observations.

Pagan: Sure, I will teasingly bait him sometimes. It often leads to a playful swat if the kids are around, or a quick mini-spanking if not.

We don't do punishment spankings, so actually behaving 'badly' wouldn't lead to a spanking.

I think bratting can be overdone and get old, but a little of it can be fun for both. :)

My hubby indulges as well. He will offer an offhand remark that is certain to cause a reaction, then sits back in wait. He starts something, and I get spanked. I’m not sure how that works. LOL

Pink Cheeks: I have to agree with Pagan on this one. We are not a true DD couple, so spankings for us are often playful, erotic, or mildly "bad girl."

Bratting is something my husband will not tolerate, and I am not one to display that type of behavior. But that does not mean others can't indulge in this type of thing. I will teasingly bait (Pagan's words, but they fit so well) my husband at times, and this leads to swats too.

We have been together so long that we can almost "read" each other. He knows when I want a spanking, and I know when he is in the mood to spank… It works for us!

Spankoe: Being a brat just isn't really my style. We're new at this as a couple but my wolf-man already knows that we don't need a reason to spank! We both enjoy him giving and me receiving. Possibly we may role play at some point and my bratting him might be a part of it, but as for me just up and bratting to get spanked? Probably only in fun.

Jujubees: I am into adult spanking for fun and eroticism and not for discipline. Sometimes bratting or joking around with a spanking partner can be a lot of fun and break up the monotony. I enjoy that. Part of my criteria when I seek out a new play partner is to try and choose one who likes to kid around with me and who would be open to my bratting him for fun. I seek a partner who doesn't take this whole business of spanking too seriously. I don't mind if my partner spanks me for bratting him all in good fun, but I wouldn't want to be "punished" because of it. I don't really consider myself a brat, and even though I like to joke around and brat a bit here and there, generally I'm not a bratty person.

Paul: We were a D/D and D/s partnership, but there were plenty of erotic and playful spanking. However, Mel never really needed to brat. She had a wild spirit and could tease with the best. When she was that way, it was easy for me to pick her up, flip up her skirt, land a few brisk slaps on her butt, a quick cuddle, and carry on with what I was doing.

She really liked to have a warm seat.

Todd and Suzy: Suzy never acts up to get a hard spanking. She really does her best to avoid those. In fact, when one is coming, she does everything she can think of to avoid it.

When it comes to the playful and erotic spanking, her manipulation techniques are pretty obvious. She'll expose her bottom, present it for spanking, or just flat out ask for a spanking.

That said, Suzy does sometime get bratty in a playful way. But, that's more just for the fun banter it creates, where we're both smiling and enjoying talking about spanking. It's not a serious thing though, that would actually lead to a spanking.

If our time wasn't so restricted, to the point we have to schedule time for spanking, perhaps some of that fun banter could actually lead to a playful spanking. That would be fun. It would work, because we'd be both in on the game. It would be like a role play spanking.

Personally though, I'm not a fan of bratting into a 'real' spanking, because, well, there is nothing 'real' about it then.

Paige Tyler: LOL! While I don't do the traditional "bratty" things, I do like to flip up my sleepshirt and stick my bottom out! It's my little way of telling my hubby that I want a spanking! In fact, I did that very thing this morning! I came out of the bathroom wearing these cute bikini panties that I got at Victoria's Secret - they're orange and say "Beach Bum" in big, bold letters! - and told him that I needed a spanking. I then promptly bent over the bed! Of course, I didn't know he was going to pull out the sorority paddle! *grin*

Bonnie: My dear Randy and I have a difference of opinion about this response. My stance is that I am a mature, adult woman and a dedicated spanko. If I want or need a spanking, I simply ask for it. After all, we’ve developed all manner of signals such that I needn’t actually say the words unless I choose to do so. Almost without exception, this results in a spanking that greatly exceeds my expectations. I have no need to brat.

Randy laughed when I said this. He asked, “What about this, this, or even, this?

Well, I’ve staked out my position and I’m sticking to it! I’m not a brat. Nyah!

Doug: My girlfriend is the same way. She is often bratty for what seems to be no other reason than to entice a spanking, but she denies doing it on purpose. Maybe it is subconscious?

99% of the time, she doesn't do it at an actually inappropriate time. We're still working on that 1%, though.

Anon: Because of physical problems on both sides, some recent and now resolved, some not so recent and resolved enough that spanking could work for both of us, spanking seems to have totally dropped out of his *vocabulary*. I never have actually bratted, which I take to mean that sort of teasing play that both know means asking for a spanking, but I have recently been pushing the envelope of behavior he dislikes. At the same time, I've been doing just about everything but serve up my ass on a platter. Because we live together but are not married, I worry occasionally about pushing too hard. In spite of the lack of spanking, I still love him. I've been told to talk with him, but every time I even get near a topic that might lead to spanking, he pushes the conversation into another area, thus avoiding the discussion.

Carye: I don't brat or act up on purpose except very occasionally when we're both in the mood and playing. Papa Shrek can always tell, he says, when I am acting up on purpose and need a spanking. I guess I just get cranky or something when I haven’t been spanked, and he can tell! He is happy to alleviate that problem though!

Southern Angel: JD says I do brat him for spankings. But I, of course, disagree. I may be a little bratty at times, but it’s more just to tease him, not because I want to be spanked. If I wanted a spanking, I would ask for it. I’d not be a brat for it, because I probably won't like a spanking given for bratty behavior.

But, like I said, JD disagrees.

Thanks, everybody! See you here next week!

Great post/article, Bonnie! I'm too late this week, but just wanted to say that I often "brat" for a playful spanking - it's fun! I don't think I'll ever outgrow that. But I never do something wrong on purpose to get a punishment spanking.

Huggs,
Reesa

I often brat WHEN I am being spanked. It is a sort of release. I act up, mouth off, give attitude, stomp feet, kick, and enjoy not censoring my behavior. Of course my bratting conveys that I am fully okay with harder swats - and I am pretty sure he uses my attitude a bit to know just how hard to spanking and how I am doing.

I don't brat, per se, since I haven't even brought up the subject of spanking with my boyfriend yet, since, as far as I can tell, he's pretty vanilla (with a stripe of chocolate hidden inside, I'm sure). But he occasionally calls me a brat. And the way he uses the word makes me feel all happy inside, because I know that he means it in a very affectionate way. If I ever get up the courage to talk to him about spanking, thoguh, I will definitely brat him for it. It would be very amusing for both os us.
