MBS Spanko Brunch #90


Welcome one and all to our ninetieth spanko brunch!

There is one spanking ritual that is very familiar even in the vanilla world. It is, of course, the birthday spanking. That is our topic for this week's discussion.

Do you and your partner engage in birthday spankings? If so, how and when are these spankings administered?

Have you been present when presumably vanilla friends initiated birthday spankings? As a spanko, how did you react?


If you would like to submit a contribution to our brunch discussion, please leave a comment below, send me an e-mail, or post a response on your own blog. Once everyone has provided their thoughts, I will publish a summary of our conversation.

I used to work at a heavy equipment dealership where the guys in the shop were known for birthday spankings. They (age 18-40) had a paddle in the break room and would have cake and spanking at lunch. I never attended their ritual, but I am sure it was over the coveralls. However, I would be in the front office fantasizing about the birthday spanking in the shop. It was always on the bare in my fantasy and sometimes the guys would turn the paddle on my sassy tail. Yes, the emotions crossing my face after lunch had all the guys wondering what I had done for lunch.

Wow, I didn't know it was also a vanilla ritual. Perhaps it is an American thing as I have never heard of it in Australia or New Zealand. Or perhaps I was too sheltered *blushes*.

I am looking forward to my very first birthday spanking next June for my 40th. Can't wait.

Hugs

Suzy gets a birthday spanking every year. The traditional birthday number, plus "one to grow on." It's fun and erotic with only a few of the spanks being harder. That way it's something to look forward to. A birthday spanking should be something the birthday girl really likes, after all.

Now, Suzy is always wanting to ~give~ a birthday spanking too. She gets a big kick trying to pull that off. "It's tradition" is her argument. A lot of what we do to celebrate a birthday harkens back to our youth, and that's what makes it so much fun. For us, growing up in the era we did... birthday spankings were a very regular thing. We kind of try to do those kind of spankings now... the playful and silly kind of birthday spanking.

Birthday spankings Don't seem to be as popular these days though. Neither one of us can recall the last time we saw/heard of one of our vanilla friends getting a birthday spanking. We do like to joke about it though... lol... hoping we can spark the idea into reality. No luck though!

Sadly, we don't have this tradition in the UK. Our nearest equivalent is the Birthday bumps. That involves 4 people in each taking hold of an arm or a leg; and then bumping the birthdayer's bum on the floor, the requisite number of times. It is usually a lot of fun; but, speaking personally, I would prefer we adopt the US custom---that way, I would have the opportunity to offer my female associates a spanking, once a year!

Bonnie, Jim must come from a different UK than I. The orphanage had a tradition of birthday spanking and they weren't much fun.
My wife's family still does birthday spanking, my eldest niece who has five children regularly gives birthday spankings, it's a time of great hilarity. She prefers me to give her spanking she says her partner spanks too hard.
We had a tradition of three anniversary spankings, her birthday, my birthday and our wedding anniversary spankings.
Mel's butt was well red, they weren't light spanking, but like all spankings they reaffirmed the bonds between us. After the spanking, as Sar puts it, "the band plays on, and stuff".
Warm hugs,
Paul.

Paul,
I am definitely from the UK, but I have never encountered a tradition of birthday spanking here....not in my family life...nor in my school life...neither in my work life. I have noted allusions to birthday spanking in American media, of all types. But I have never, ever, noticed anything similar on British TV, for example. Given the British obsession with corporal punishment , one would expect the custom to have some salience in: the workplace; pubs, etc.

Hi, Bonnie!

I love reading your accounts of your birthday spankings. It occurred to me that it was about six weeks after my birthday when I first got up my nerve to talk to my husband about spanking, and we started it, so I haven't had that experience yet. My birthday's more than four months away, which gives me plenty of time to introduce that twist to him. I'm sure he'll oblige, but, knowing Jim, it'll be rather straightforward (e. g., no limo!).

When I was a kid growing up in the American midwest, birthday spankings were regularly given in school. I got one in kindergarten, at lunch, by the principal. I got another one in sixth grade by the gym teacher, who would end P. E. class once a week by selecting someone to spank. I remember going to the girls' bathroom afterwards and craning to see the red handprints left on my cheeks.

Totally, Bonnie! Well, I get them, at least! LOL! My hubby gives them to me after I open my presents, but before cake!

*hugs*

I always get a birthday spanking every year from Master Anakin. I will be getting my birthday spanking on Saturday night as midnight rolls in for Oct. 14th. We have a poll going at Journey to the Darkside where you can vote on what spanking toy to use for my birthday spanking. So far, Anakin's paddle and hand are tied. :)
I also always take Master Anakin's birthday spanking for him when it's his birthday. I get spanked the number he is turning.
:)
Great question. Love your brunches!
BIG HUGS

Like Jim, I am familiar with the bumps. We always used to give them at birthday parties and at school. My husband, who grew up in a different part of Canada than I did, had never heard of them. Both of us have heard of birthday spankings but have never actually seen anyone give one. I'm sure they would be out of the question at children's parties now.

I've never had one, yet. Each year, weeks before my birthday, Ron asks me what I'd like. Each year I tell him, "A good hard spanking". I don't need 'stuff' but he always buys me a lovely gift anyway. This year I'm going to ask specifically for a birthday spanking, so as to introduce the topic in advance. (It's 5 months away so I'll have plenty of time to work up the courage.) Then I'll remind him on the day, and we'll see what happens!

Hugs,
Hermione

I love my birthday spankings! It just is a wonderful way to start of a new year. Last year he even gave me a gift of a new spanking toy to use for my spanking.

Bonnie said...

We love birthday spanking rituals. Randy and I enjoy the traditional one swat per year of age, plus one to grow on. As Padme described, I take the spanking for his birthday as well.

As chronicled elsewhere, Randy loves to concoct exotic scenarios for my annual birthday spankings. In our younger years, these spankings could be quite intense. In the last couple of years, though, Randy has moved toward a slightly more sensual approach. Either way, he usually manages to surprise and delight me.

I hear a lot of presumably vanilla people joke about birthday spankings, but I haven’t witnessed the actual event in many years. If the photographs that people post on Flickr and Photobucket are any indication, I must simply travel in the wrong circles.

My first adult birthday spanking was last year when I turned 50. Loved it. Nick used a different impliment for each decade and made each one count! When he finished he asked me if the count was right. I told him yes and he said "Good the rest is gravy!"

Oh the stories. It doesn't happen so much anymore (now that I live in a somewhat prudish college town-they tend to, ah, look down on that sort of thing), but when I was very young (elementary school, so maybe 7 or 8), I had a next door neighbor who thought it would be hysterical to give me birthday spankings. Of course, by that time I was already fascinated with spanking, so I halfway encouraged it by making sure to antagonize him on my birthday (it should be noted that this neighbor was the dad of one of my friends). I recall one where I was sure I'd gotten away with it by repeatedly riding by on my bike. My mistake came when I switched to roller skates (not so hard to grab an 8 year old on roller skates). Sadly, there have been no good stories since.

Like Jim I had bumped and been bumped on birthdays a lot, but I'd never heard of birthday spankings until I discovered the spanko community online.

I don't think the bumps are as common as they used to be, as my children have never mentioned them. The last time I participated the birthday boy was the manager of our football team, and he was in his mid fifties. It seemed a lot more hazardous than a spanking would have been.

I'm late to post here, but I thought I'd mention that I posted about my recent birthday spanking on my blog a few days ago. I'll put up another post though in honor of the brunch. I think it's a great tradition.

I've always loved birthday spankings! They're so much fun and it makes the day extra special. ;-)
