MBS Spanko Brunch #101


I hope all MBS readers are enjoying a peaceful holiday season and staying nice and warm. It's a time when many people fall victim to stress and unrealistic expectations. It would be easy to suggest that one good spanking will wipe away all of that tension. But the solution is usually not quite so simple. The reality is that rushing around and worrying tends to sap our energy and leave us feeling anything but playful.

So how do we combat the winter blues? How can we regain our vigor, our enthusiasm, and our passion?

What are you and your partner doing this holiday season to keep your love light shining brightly? How do you reconnect during times of stress and fatigue? Or must romance wait until other responsibilities are discharged?

If you would like to add your voice to our brunch discussion, we would love to hear your ideas! You can leave a comment below, send me an e-mail, or post a message on your own blog.

Hi Bonnie,
I was thinking a good brunch topic would be obsessing on spanking. I know you have a story about this. I am finding that I can get into looking at blogs and sites obsessively and I start to neglect other things. Any thoughts?

Another idea for you is to do a Dear Abby of Spanking. Your mail bag was interesting. I'll bet there are a lot of questions out there about spanking...

i can tell you what i would like to happen, but it's kind of one of those "want in one hand..." situations: a good babysitter for the kids, a bottle of jameson's, and a night to ourselves for our anniversary here in a few days would do wonders for my stress level.

as it is, we'll just have to muddle through till it's over.

We went away on holiday for two weeks just before Christmas, an escape from the cold harsh British winter. 25 Celsius and clear blue skies of Fuerteventura made us both feel a lot better. A vanilla holiday as we took no spanking toys at all.

Stress levels have dropped and we feel fine again.

Happy Christmas and a peaceful new year to all of you.

Bonnie, my love lives on but no one to spank, shame. :(
Children's party Christmas Eve, no spanking, these are the family little ones, lots of love.
Christmas Day, just me, my memories and animals.
Family and friends to dinner Boxing day, lots of talk and friendship and the love that is between family that are friends as well.
Have a wonderful Christmas dear Bonnie and may you be sitting as warm as you wish. *Smiles*
Warm hugs,
Paul.

Now that the shopping is done, cleaning of the house for Christmas guests will begin. We've managed a few good spankings to keep the stress minimized and we will be breaking out the Bailey's tonight. We buy a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream once a year. It's been our Christmas tradition to share it on Christmas eve. This year we are making starting one day early.
Happy Holiday season to all!

Bonnie, this year we have not managed to do a good job of keeping our balance. The long version answer is on my blog. The short version is to focus on what really is important, but how the heck does one do that? Anyway, I wish you a most wonderful and peaceful Holiday! Sara

I have the sexiest Santa Girl outfit from Victoria's Secret that I wear for my hubby! It's hot pink in color and consists of a Very Sexy bra, panties, a flirty mini-skirt trimmed with faux fur and a matching Santa hat! He absolutely loves it, which is why he makes my bottom hot pink to match!

Merry Christmas, Bonnie!

*hugs*

We have a moderate distance to contend with on a regular basis - that means if we get busy we don't see each other. However, when together - romance just cant take a back seat - so my back seat is always spanked. IT can be the best stress releif known to me. I can hardly wait until my next Christmas spanking.

We like the holidays and have finished shopping and everything is wrapped.We have traditions like opening a gift on christmas eve.going to look at christmas lights and watching "it's a wonderful life. We've both been sick but Saturday we managed to have some play time.I think that you just do the best that you can and eventually everything will fall into place.
David and i wish you a happy holiday season.

I find the holidays to be a very stressful time. I used to think that things might settle down once our daughter left home, but that hasn’t happened. The real problem is having more obligations than time and energy will allow. I never like to let people down or do less than my best on anything. But something has to give, and ultimately, something does.

Last weekend, Randy had to convince me that I could buy some items I generally make. His method of persuasion was forceful and compelling. The spanking broke through my stress and the lovemaking that followed served to restore the connection between us. I’m probably in need of another dose today, but this treatment lasted for quite a while.

Beyond fun and games, we try to find time where we can be together and sharing enjoyable activities. Even if it’s just a movie and dinner one night a week, it can make a big difference.

I am probably less stressed than most because both Nick and I are laid back in general with all things. But I think one thing we do to relax with the loving and spanking part of our relationship is that we have finally gotten to the point where we can curl up in bed at night and be very satisified with touching and rubbing yet not feel obligated to go any farther if we are not in the mood. We have learned that the touching and rubbing all by themselves are fun and brings us closer. Sometimes it does lead to more (as I posted about today) but if it doesn't that's fine.

The shopping is done, present wrapped, house cleaned, cookies baked, while shopping we bought a large piece of ginger. Tonight will be just for us, a lovely snowball cocktail, playing with the ginger, some spanking and some rest!

Usually we're okay at managing everything, focusing on what's important, etc. Lists are my favourite strategy. We set out lists of who needs to do what on which day, so that we both know what the priority is, no one feels like they're the only one doing everything, and nothing important gets forgotten. We even write in a code (since the lists are on the fridge and visible to anyone that stops by) for spankings and sex.

However through a series of circumstances that is pretty much unbelievable to have occurred all over the last 3 weeks, things are more than getting to both of us. We're still trying to follow the lists and just throw out the things that would be nice but aren't all that necessary.

Well I am one girl who is not getting ANY kinky fun until Christmas is well over. Since our relationship is relatively new, we are not spending the holidays together, both of us have gone home to our parents for Christmas. Im sitting in my teenage bedroom typing this feeling desperate for his hands all over my body, I last saw him on Friday and it was electric. Ill be sneaking off on Christmas day to phone him up and tell him what Id like to be doing to him...
*sigh*
Very frustrated here. He has sworn me to not masturbating so we are both going to be gagging for it by the time we see each other. I bet we dont make it though... you can imagine whatll happen if either of us finds out the other didnt keep the promise... itll involve whips.

Happy Christmas to you all.
Sorry if Ive gone on a bit, if Im frustrated I tend to rant... LOL.
