Recap: MBS Sunday Brunch for May 26

Our question this week was how things change at your house when house guests are coming. Here are your responses.

Sunny Girl: The routine doesn't change, but the implements get hidden.

Dragon's Rose: None. The toys and tools of torture stay hidden. We have three teens in the house. They don't want to know what mom and dad do in the bedroom.

Red: All implements without a primary non-spanking use, are always hidden...

Joeyred: I have my implements hidden. I also ensure that my electronics are all password protected. I would not want someone picking up my iPad and finding a spanking site.

Mona Lisa: No arrangements are needed. My husband always has his spanking implements with him... It's his hand! LOL

Ronnie: Our implements are always hidden. If children are visiting, I do remove my laptop just in case.

Faline: I don't live with my boyfriend, nor do we currently have spanking as a part of our dynamic. When people come over to my place, I hide the folder on my iPad where I keep all the (tame) spanky art that I've drawn over the past couple of years.

Strangely, I show this art to people pretty freely online, but I assume if they saw it all in the same folder it would raise some eyebrows. LOL It's definitely something I do if I have anyone come over because otherwise I don't feel comfortable letting them browse stuff on my iPad.

As an aside, whenever I am dating someone and spanking/DD is part of the equation, being in the company of vanilla friends or family turns me into the most obnoxious bratty pest in the world as long as those people are present! LOL. So having "normal" people come over would be a lot of fun for me in that regard... ;)

Kim B.: We have three teens. Our tools of the trade are tucked away and the ones that are out blend in. For example, in my hall by the coat rack, we have an umbrella stand. Inside are two canes for that “I can't wait to get you home” spanking if we make it that far! In his kitchen, we have a few display wooden spoons! We do what we do and when the occasional oops happens they are the ones either embarrassed or curious!

Kat: My hubby told me I would need to stay away from my HoH if vanilla guests were around. He likes to goose me from behind with a few well placed playful pops!

Anon: 1) Hide the toys. That's easy in our case, since they can fit into one wide but fairly shallow locking drawer.

2) Take out to the garage the platform that I built for her to stand on during "Hands on the knees, wee lassie!" and "Over the rail you go, girl!" and "Grab your ankles, Honey!" sessions. It can easily pass as a height-booster for her getting things up onto garage shelves.

3) Clear Internet history from computer, especially if the company includes curious kids. Also, make sure that all adult materials on the hard drive, including both her stories and mine, are hidden within multiply nested folders with password protection.

4) Plan to make hay if/when the sun shines during the visit. For example, if the guests decide to spend an afternoon (or better, night!) at the beach or with other friends or relatives.

I wish the rest of life were that simple and straightforward.

Bea: What do I do when vanilla company is in the house? BRAT!

Bedroom Bondage: Well, we often have to hide our canes, whips and paddles when his daughter visits us, and I must make sure to be decently dressed. I also won't wear my collar like I often do after work hours.

D.: I give S a sound spanking the day before our guests arrive, so that when they do, she does not have to squirm and fidget as she sits with them, although she is still getting a mild reminder that she is lucky that her nice bottom is nor bared and bent over for a demonstration of wifely discipline in front of them.

Hermione: If we are expecting company on our scheduled spanking day, it's usually postponed, in case someone arrives early and finds us engaged in activities we'd rather they didn't know about.

Our toybox is safely hidden under the bed, and I hang a calendar over the spanking plaque on the wall. I replace the larger implements on the wall rack with necklaces, and place the implements in a drawer.

I don't expect anyone to use our computers, but I always remove the iPad from sight and plug it in to recharge, in case someone snoops and finds my eBooks.

Our Bottoms Burn: May I suggest that if you have teenagers and your toys are not locked away, they have already found them.

Mr. BB: Not too much changes actually.

There's a subtle unspoken language and the implements stay in their designated place tucked away from sight. The hairbrush on the dresser does get to stay as a reminder to behave though ;)

Abby Williams: When my mom-in-law came to visit in March, we had intended to do a better job of "cover up," but we ended up just throwing a blanket over the umbrella stand that holds our canes, and everything else was in my nightstand drawer. We intentionally don't have together-time when guests are staying with us. It makes the first night alone together so much better!

This holiday weekend is our sixth anniversary, plus Mr. W's birthday weekend. When I came home on Thursday, ready for a long four day weekend with him (I took Friday off), I found that our bedroom wall now features many of our toys hanging from hooks on the wall. It's something we've talked about doing for years, but Mr. W finally had the chance to make it happen. I'll get a picture up on the blog soon. So I guess in lieu of having guests, we ended up making our home even *more* spanking-friendly.

Our little dog is acting up with the amount of noise we're making and closed doors we're requiring this weekend. But it's one of the best weekends ever. :-) Happy Memorial Day!

Congratulations, Abby and Mr. W!

Prefectdt: I run around looking in all the nooks and crannies for implements and spanking DVDs, etc. Then I forget to put my head up to see the whole of my house and do things like leave a large flogger on the coat hooks.

My vanilla friends think that I go to a lot of fancy dress parties. It's my standard excuse.

Kurt: After the obvious implements of discipline/ fun are secreted away, prior to the guests arrival, there are still a number of Fannie warming tools in plain sight, if the occasion presents itself!

There is the Harry and David's laminated bamboo "paddle", which can also be used for cheese and crackers, the two ping-pong paddles (with, oddly enough, no rubber on one side) ready for a game of ping- pong?, the Pampered Chef bamboo spoon/ spatula display on the counter, a wooden hairbrush on the bathroom counter, a laminated leather strap next to the knife sharpening outfit, and the dreaded Vermont Country Store backbrush in the shower. And, of course, the ever ready, all-time favorite , the willing hand, artfully sculpted by God to fit the curve of the bottom.

Harry and David sells paddles? Who knew?

Bonnie: In the years since our daughter moved out for good, Randy and I have become very sloppy (or comfortable with our kink if you prefer). Either way, we have toys stashed all over the house. Like Abby described, some are currently hanging on the wall. I think if we were going to entertain a vanilla house guest, we would have to engage in a major cleanup.

Thanks, everybody!

I haven't been around lately, so I missed this question. We have children around all the time, and their friends. Nothing changes here, it's always on the down low

I cant believe how appropriate this is for me ...I have house guests coming in about 4 weeks and staying for AT LEAST 2 months. I have no idea how its going to change. The implements will be hidden away better than they are, the dynamic will not change as such I dont think but consequences deffinately will...things will be delayed and written up in my book for dealing with later - or if i push too hard (I have been told) that silent implement (or at least the quieter ones - cane, flogger etc) will come out instead. So I guess, nothing will change much but just kept on the "down low" more than usual. Id best behave.

My mother's paddle (my name painted on one side, my sister's on the other) and I moved in with my fiance when I was 17 and has been on display in every kitchen we've been in. Most of the tools of the trade disappear where they have a natural place. My son's plastic bat doesn't draw much attention where ever it is; and it seems it's always underfoot when I least need it to be.
It's my job to keep the obvious "toys" in places where they shouldn't easily be found by accident or natural curiosity of children which is harder than I imagined. Luggage in the closet has worked well.
