MBS Spanko Brunch #355

Hello again, dear friends, and welcome to our weekly community brunch. Our topic this week is one that many of us know well. And those who don't may want to consider the possibilities.

Do you and your partner employ stress relief spankings? If so, are they effective? If not, is this something you might try in the future?

I invite you to answer our question of the week. It's easy, fun, and everyone with an opinion is welcome to participate. Just enter your thoughts in the form of a comment below. Once everyone has had a turn, I will post an edited summary of the results.

YES we have them, altho regular maintenance seems to keep the stress at bay most of the time. If I'm in a particularly stressed out state tho, one of us will decide that it's time for a concentrated effort.

and YES they are effective for me. it centers me, brings me back down to earth so to speak. We call them "grounding" spankings for that reason.

I wrote about one particularly effective one HERE. THat's the ONLY time I've cried during a spanking. So far anyway.

(Please excuse what looks like a shameless plug with that link. I just wanted to share this one tho, cos it WAS meaningful for me...)

Hi Bonnie :)
We don't call them that.....when I am overwhelmed, Ian will gently take my hand and and with his hand rub and lightly spank, but it is more of a comfort thing, than a spanking. I actually like it, and find it soothing. I don't think I would respond very well to a hard spanking when I am "wigging out".
Interesting brunch topic.

We do stress relief spankings and they are quite effective for me. Stress relief spankings or some form of that term is one of the most used google search terms that bring people to my blog.

I have been considering Stress Relief Spankings for the both of us for a very long time. I am thinking of starting them within the next week or so due to the amount of stress that both myself and my wife are under with the bills and such of late.

Julia said...

We do practice stress relief spankings, although most of the time these are more maintenance than anything else. DH will spank me when he is stressed to the max and can't get a hold of it. Spanking me lets him breathe again.

Lucy Lou said...

Yes we do. It is something relatively new to us, but so far it seems to be working well. Ours may be more of the maintenance realm though....not sure.

Dana said...

We don't really call them stress relief spankings, but I can ask for it if I feel I need it. Otherwise, I don't get spanked when I'm stressed unless I break a rule.

The particulars of how it's handled (strength, implements, etc) depends on what I need at that particular time. Sometimes a light maintenance is all that's needed. Other times I need more.

Hermione said...

We regularly engage in stress relief spankings, and I find they are very effective. In fact, they really hit the spot! After receiving one, I feel all my tension has drained away, and whatever was troubling me doesn't seem important anymore.

Hi Bonnie, let me say it is a pleasure for me to share my first experiences as part of your 'brunch' for the very first time. Also I would like to thank you for the comment you left on my blog about the validity of blogging in 2012. I have taken your comments quite seriously.

To this weeks question..."Do you and your partner employ stress relief spankings? If so, are they effective? If not, is this something you might try in the future?"

The stress relief from spankings for both myself and my partner is quite palpable on the evenings we share this magical moment. I change...she changes, and all of a sudden everything seems right with the world.

Life can be a struggle, but with our special anecdote (spanking) ..life is much more bearable!

Hi Bonnie,
I actually can answer this time!! yay.
Last week for the first time my husband just said,"come on climb across my lap for me to spank you" It was for no reason, I did, and it was a great stress reliever. I was better and not as stressed.It was probably mild compared to many out here but it worked for us.

abby said...

We do and yes they work! Had one just this past week, and even I found it amazing how much better I felt, and more energized.

Morning Bonnie :)

We have only be doing this for a very short time, but have been discussing 'maintenance spankings' not that we do those yet (though the way things are going, they are not that far away :)

Stress relief spankings sound like a good idea though. Especially when you are almost on the edge of doing or saying something you shouldn't because of stress. It would eliminate a lot of worry.

givingway.org said...

It is hilarious to me: Once upon a time when I was stressed I wanted a drink, or a cigarette,or a long run,or a vat of toffee crunch frozen yogurt. Now,yes-I want a good spanking. Sigh. What has the world come to?

Reece Seever said...

We don't do stress relief spankings per se, though they certainly serve that purpose.

Mick and Lynda's Place said...

Like others have said, we don't call it that. But usually Lynda will do something that warrants a spanking when in fact, she needs the spanking for relief. However, she will NEVER admit this, so don't tell her I said so. :)

Roz said...

Great question Bonnie. Again, we don't call it this but we sometimes have 'just because' spankings which can work similarly to maintenance for me and are a source of stress relief.

SirQsmlb said...

Ab-so-spank-ly we do!!! They are a wonderful stress relief. There have been times where Sir can tell I am stressed, frustrated, angry, irritated, annoyed..... and one good spanking and I have a new attitude and calm. I only wish I could get them more often!

ronnie said...

Yes we do and they are very effective for me. I feel so much calmer after, all tension and stress gone,

Love,
Ronnie

Slavewife said...

Yes! These types of spankings are perfect for when I am crabby beyond belief and just need to relax. Likewise, when His stress level is high, it gives Him a safe release.

Lizzie said...

Craig frequently spanks to "focus" me. I can be rather scattered (I have classic, hyperactive ADHD, even with appropriate medication). Spanking helps more than anything else. In fact, it's something of a miracle that I was able to SIT for the California bar exam - I was so wound up, Craig gave me long, hard spanking each of the three days. But I passed, the first time, so it was totally worth it. (And I loved every minute of the spanking, too!)

SPANKEDHORTIC II said...

I find that 99 out of 100 spankings, that I receive, result in major stress relief, no matter what the original intention was.

playful little brat said...

I've never received a stress relief spanking, but it's something that really has caught my interest. There have been a few times i've been stressed beyond belief, and i've thought a spanking could help.

Respecting Mistress said...

Our weekly maintenance sessions are partly to keep me on track and focussed, partly punishment for the small things I've done wrong in the week (otherwise I'd been caned every single day, Mistress says!), and partly stress relief. And sometimes I'm punished at other times, mainly as a corrective measure - but sometimes purely as a means of Mistress relieving her stress!

houston_switch said...

I will have to ask my s/o to spank me... sometimes I just bring the paddle, hairbrush and cane to her and crawl over her lap... or if we are in bed together, I'll ask her what she is thinking,and she will always parrot the question back to I can respond with a spanking request...
I do feel better afterwards...

kiwigirliegirl said...

i guess you could say we do, we do regular maintenance every week - could they be classed as a stress relief? probably. All i would have to do is ask and Sir would oblige :)
great question
