Recap: MBS Sunday Brunch for Feb 10

Our question this week dealt with playing outside the home. When I posted it, I knew the wording was slightly ambiguous. I hoped that would yield a variety of interesting responses. As you can see below, I needn’t have been concerned.

Jessica: Hmm, let's see. I've played... softball, volleyball and musical instruments outside of the home. Ooohhh, you mean *PLAY*. I wouldn't mind watching live play, but I couldn't possibly bare my bottom in public. I am pretty shy and my body is one that only a husband can love. :-)

Wilhelmina: Hotels are the obvious place away from home where play happens, but I wouldn't mind some outdoor play amongst nature. Especially where a cool breeze can blow over my warmed bottom, with no one about of course. *blush*

JmyRPT: We played along a muddy track in the middle of English countryside a few months back. (The idea was better than the execution).

We have also been going to a nude spa where folk 'play' in all sorts of ways.

We played on holiday in the hotel bedroom.

I think we are up for it almost anywhere, just give us some ideas.

Hermione: This question can have two meanings: playing in a location other than our house, or playing away with other people. The answer to both is "No". We play only with each other, at home.

Paul: Hotels of course, often.

Outdoors was always a turn on. Let me think, there was the New Forest, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Glens and Highlands, and isolated beaches. On foreign holiday, we were mostly indoors.

It certainly adds a certain frisson to the game, the possibility of being caught, not exactly red handed. Chuckles!

Terpsichore: If the question is interpreted as a place away with other people the answer is no. This is something special shared only between my husband and me. If the question is interpreted as a place outside of the home, then the answer in currently no. However, the idea of being outdoors with no one around has a certain romantic appeal. Once our children are a little bit older, going away to a hotel where we can enjoy some time together, just the two of us, has definite possibilities. :-)

Lori: We are too new at this to have any out-the-home experiences. We just haven't gone anywhere, but we are planning a "spanking weekend" after the work on our kitchen is done. We want to rent a cabin for the weekend somewhere secluded. When the weather warms up, I think a private place outdoors would actually be fun. I'm huge on the privacy issue though, so I will have to feel totally comfortable with the situation.

Mary: Hotels are the obvious place, but we have not played with others. I have had "fantasies" of being spanked in front of others. But those are fantasies that I would truly rather remain that way and not ones I want to execute.

We have played in the woods and I find that absolutely delicious. I wish he would take the initiative to do that more often. Here’s an example of a "fantasy" that actually occurred while hiking. There was a trail marker that said to stay on the trail, but something caught my attention and I wandered into a clearing to look at something. As we meandered back to the main road, we saw a ranger. I imagined getting scolded for not minding the signs and my partner giving me a spanking in front of the ranger to get out of a fine. But it was strictly a head space thing. I don't think I would seek out a public spanking in actuality. But the outdoors is great!

Greenwoman: In summer, I generally have quickies in the woods or on a moonlit beach at least a few times. It’s part of what I love about summer. We also frequently find some time to be in our yard at night a few times too.

There are few places/scenes that I fantasize about anymore because I've been diligent about fulfilling my fantasies. But I have a thing about getting one during a professional massage, in the bathroom at a restaurant, on balconies of hotels, in elevators... that sort of public experience.

The first requirement of playing outside the home is how to dress. You have to dress so that it can be spontaneous, but a quick cover up. Once that's taken care of, you just look for privacy during whatever else you have planned during a day with your lover. It will arrive and when it does, be ready to whip the parts in question into view and go for it!

Abby: I would love to be confident enough to be spanked anywhere, anytime. It's not so much a body issue or an embarrassment issue as it is an issue of trying to answer the "What on earth are you doing?" question if we were seen. Is public, even semi-public, spanking considered indecent behavior? Nudity wouldn't be allowed, but over the panties? Over the pants? What could we really get away with?

At a hockey game this weekend, we saw a man whack at his wife's bottom all the way as they walked up the stadium stairs to their seats. She wasn't safe until she sat down, which she could barely do because she was giggling so much. It was fabulous. Part of me wanted to go say hello. We've been talking about where else we could play and I freaked out a bit at the thought of being spanked out in the world. I'm getting over it though. When I do, I will certainly let you know!

Prefectdt: Do you remember your grandmother telling you about everybody knowing each other, so little crime that you can leave your door unlocked and not worry about it, and small kids being able to play in the street because the whole street would keep an eye on them and make sure that they come to no harm? Well, there are still places like that in the world and I count myself as being very lucky to live in one of them. The down side of this is that everybody knows everybody else's business. Combine that with living in a terraced house with thin walls and kids next door, my home is not a very good place to play.

This has left me with an eternal hunt for suitable places to play. If you think that I proposed this subject to help get new ideas, you are right. I am studying the other comments with close intent. :-)

Using Antwerp as a playground is my first solution. It is not too far away and is just large enough a city to be slightly impersonal. Antwerp is also "Kink Central" for the two provinces of East and West Flanders. If there is enough money in the budget, there are rooms for hire where you can go AAARG! as loudly as you like and no one will be bothered. There are even fully equipped dungeons if you feel the need (but expect to pay a lot to hire these).

The cabin in the woods isn't too far an option either. The Ardens is not too far away and if you are prepared to book outside of the main holiday seasons, prices can be very good. You just have to make sure that it is a chalet standing alone and not one in a park with dozens of others. Organisation between two or more people is difficult with this as well, as it does mean staying away from home for a few days.

The dream is to find a strict lady living not too far away, but in the countryside and not in the village where privacy is no problem, but I think this is about as likely as a big Lotto win.

Todd and Suzy: There was a time that we rarely ever played anywhere but outside of the home because of privacy issues. Fortunately that is no longer an issue, and we're mostly able to spank in the house whenever we wish (which we love!).

But we still do enjoy the chance to spank elsewhere, and do so as often as we can. That 'elsewhere' is almost always a hotel room. Just this weekend, we got the chance to have a very enjoyable spanking session in a hot tub in a hotel suite. We like 'theme' hotels too. Those definitely can make of a fun spanking experience.

We'd like to do a little outdoor spanking, and have some ideas when the weather warms up. Spanking at the beach would be great too.

Starlight: Hotels are the obvious answer, but really, cabins are a better choice. There are lots of woodsy destinations that have cabins for rent. Obviously, the distance from our room to other ears allows for greater release of inhibitions! SMACK! OUCH!

Darling Girl: Hotels certainly, and often in the past. Once, and very memorably, on a train, in a train carriage in between ticket inspections. My Disciplinarian assures me he knew nobody was about... But still! At least my knickers were kept up.

Elle: OMG... I love to "play" in unusual locations. We like to get out and about to say the least. The fear of getting caught is an enormous turn on for me and the man in my life too. I wouldn't dare list the places we've had a go. We really should have been arrested by now. He's almost always dom in public (we switch in private) and it gives me such a thrill. We are infamous at parties because our friends know we'll end up in a bathroom or a kitchen misbehaving *wink*

Mthc: We play everywhere. He even smacks me in Walmart, the grocery store, and while cooking dinner!

Skellos: I agree with the majority here... Hotels are an obvious. I have had the opportunity to play in the out of doors. It was a pretty ideal setting, and it was fun at first, but we got caught in a rainstorm and had to leave much sooner than we wished.

Jeana: Like everyone else, we have played in hotel rooms. I have also been spanked leaning over the side of a bridge while hiking down an abandoned trail in the mountains. Although we had not seen anyone in like four hours, the idea of someone walking up and seeing us in the middle of the woods was thrilling. Of course, a single swat in a public setting is always fun, but I wouldn’t want it to go any further than that. As for other partners, we just don’t do that. I have nothing against the idea. It’s just something I don’t personally see the need for right now.

Jean Marie: My lover and I play mostly in the bedroom because, whether the spanking I receive is playful or punishing, it's always followed by lovemaking, and that just makes it easier.

We've only had three chances to play in other venues besides hotel rooms (which are always a turn-on and where I'm sure we've disturbed our next-door neighbors).

Two years ago, my maternal grandma died, leaving me the farm property where I'd spent many summers growing up. I took Kyle to upstate New York to see the place before I sold it. The big barn was just as I remembered it, just as scary/thrilling to explore as when I was ten. On the far side of the structure was an attached tool shed. As soon as we went inside, Kyle remarked, "This is like a woodshed..." I looked up at him, he smiled down at me, then took his belt off. I love taking my clothes off outside, but was a little bothered by a big wasps' nest on the ceiling of the shed. Regardless, Kyle put a sting in my tail with an exquisitely hard strapping, and the nookie afterward was sublime.

Then last summer I finally took Kyle home to meet my parents, signifying that our relationship was serious. This didn't matter to my dad and step-mom, or the fact that I'm 30 and Kyle is older, we were put in separate rooms of my parents' summer home on a beautiful lake. We stayed for five days, and after three I was getting horny in the extreme. One evening after dinner the two of us strolled hand-in-hand to the boathouse. The polished wood, chrome, and leather of the old Criss Craft classic seemed so masculine as we made-out (to say nothing of my boyfriend's lips and tongue and fingers). I was very aroused very quickly. He pulled my bathing suit bottoms down to enter me, but I whispered, "Spank me first." He did. I don't think I've ever climaxed so hard. No sooner had we done the deed and my reddened butt was somewhat re-clothed by my bikini than my dad showed up! He was wondering what we were up to, and wondering if we wanted to take the boat out. Treating us like the kids he'll always think of the younger generation as, he drove! I don't know if he noticed my glowing backside or nipples poking through my top like bullets. It was romantic, nonetheless.

So we're driving home a couple days later, laughing about all the incidents during our stay, and Kyle compliments how lovely I looked in the speed boat at twilight. I wriggled out of my clothes, then got his stiffy out of his pants. He wisely pulled the car over, and we jumped in the back seat. This wasn't the optimal location. It was cramped and hot, but it made me feel like a teenager. He spanked me as best he could, then took me from behind, and we were just building to a crescendo when there was an abrupt rap on the glass. A cop ticketed us for creating an unsafe road condition of the side of a freeway. He warned us that he could have cited us for several other violations. Unlike my father, this cop got a real eyeful. That shamed me out of wanting to try sex in a car ever again.

Anyway, "place" can be a marvelous addition to sex and spanking. Your question reminds me that we don't take advantage of this enough.

Bonnie: We love the outdoors and enjoy a (hopefully) secret spanking in the woods when the opportunity presents itself. We have a few favorite destinations that see very little foot traffic.

One fond memory involves a picturesque spot by the Pacific where there is a waterfall right on the beach. This is normally a fairly busy spot, but when we were there, a light rain kept away all but the most intrepid beachgoers. Randy sat on a rock ledge, flopped me down across his lap, and spanked me over my shorts. It didn’t hurt that much, but the very idea of getting a full fledged spanking in such a public location was an incredible turn-on.

There have been lots of other places, but many of the best are already chronicled here.

Thank you all for joining our spanko brunch. We'll be right back here again next week for another discussion related to our favorite subject.

I'm just curious---it seems to me that most of the posters who have more often played outside (especially in public places) are from the other side of the Pond. I don't know where everyone is from exactly, but vocabulary hints help.

I'd love to explore the differences and similarities between the spanko worlds in the USA and the UK (and elsewhere).

I love reading the recaps, Bonny. I'm very glad that you do them as it gives me a chance to see who answered after I did and what they said. Happy Valentine's Day!!

WOW, Bonnie, this was a great brunch! Wish I could print all your brunch responses over the past year in a book and take it with me everywhere I go!
