Autumn Potpourri

Hey everybody. Happy weekend!

This is going to be one of those wandering potpourri posts. Back in the days when I posted daily, this would probably have been several day’s worth of material. Anyhow, here's what I've got.

First Things First

Friday has been spanking night at our house for years. We look forward to our evening of recreation and anticipate it all week. This Friday was no exception. We love creative spanking role play adventures, but time and energy often limit our options. Not so on this occasion.

In keeping with the season, we tried a back-to-school scenario. Randy was the stern professor, of course. But rather than the naughty schoolgirl who failed a test or forget her homework again, I played a nervous coed who needed a spanking in order to concentrate on her studies. I had to ask him to please give me some stress relief. He was very accommodating. He took me over his lap and lifted my pleated plaid skirt. He next tugged my white cotton panties up between my cheeks to fully expose them to his percussive tribute.

Randy began applying a flexible leather paddle, striking with a moderate yet relentless pace. The smacks were hard, especially on my unwarmed bottom, but the sting and the heat felt great. As he spanked, he tried to explain in detail the psychological and physiological reasons why hard spankings are essential for a young woman's concentration. His banter was absolute hogwash. I was actually listening as much as one can while being paddled. Suddenly, the sheer idiocy of his pseudo-scientific argument got to me.

"The leather transfers positive ions directly through the posterior dermis layers and directly into the central nervous system stimulating feelings of well being and invigorating confidence." (or something like that)

I burst out laughing! I couldn't help it. I told him exactly what I thought he was full of. I proclaimed that my bottom was now feeling extraordinarily confident! By this point, my loving husband was laughing too. I know I probably shouldn't make fun of him while he is spanking. It undermines his dominance. But this situation was just so silly. Besides, this was not a power exchange sort of spanking. It was supposed to be fun. And it was.

Randy had to re-establish order because he had to (it's a guy thing, I think). Another flurry of sizzling paddle strikes to my bare derriere curbed my runaway sense of humor and refocused my attention, at least temporarily. But it was all good fun.

I don't know how well it worked as relaxation therapy, but this humorous spanking and the romantic events that followed were a great way to launch into the weekend.


Those who follow our blogroll may have noticed that I’ve added a bunch of new blogs since I returned. The count now stands at 767 links. That’s a new high.

A lot of the new entries are Tumblr photo blogs. Some readers tell me they enjoy the variety of pictures and videos. Others lament the repetitiveness and explicit content of some Tumblr blogs. At present, I link many sorts of blogs with spanking-oriented content. When readers ask why I don’t link more couples blogs (or authors or DD or F/F or whatever), I tell them that I link what I find. If most of what I see is photo blogs, then that is what will be reflected in the blogroll. If you see a good blog that I’ve missed, please e-mail me and I’ll add it. Better still, if you want to start a new one, I’d love to help you promote it.

What do you prefer to see in the blogroll? Would you prefer a smaller, more focused blogroll? Is the color coding sufficient to help you find what you seek? Or is it all right as is?

A few readers expressed disappointment that I no longer mark new additions to the blogroll. It’s trivial to add that designation when new blogs are linked. The trick is recognizing when to remove the mark. How important is this subject to you?

Speaking of blogs, I need to salute Ronnie who is doing a wonderful job with In with the New. I encourage you to check out her blog.

More thanks go to Hermione who helps in a many invisible ways to keep this blog alive.

In other news...

A reader shared this article which examines how adult spanking became mainstream. I think that’s a good thing, right?

Just in time for elections

I haven’t posted a survey for a long time, so we probably should. Are there any questions that you would like to see MBS readers answer?


In tidying up this weekend, I discovered a never-posted transcription of a digitally recorded dialog from a spanking session. I think it’s humorous. I plan to get it posted soon.

I hope you’re all having a splendid weekend. I look forward to hear your responses to the questions above.


Cat said...

LOL Bonnie...I would have cracked up if I was being spanked by someone spouting the same "...spanking transfers ions...". That is too funny!

Thanks for sharing the very interesting article...raises a lot of good points.

Regarding the could break it down further but then again...why? I think you have it broken down in a way that gives everyone a direction. You might consider marking a blog as 'new' and then removing that designation the next month when you update...if you update regularly.

Hugs and blessings...Cat

Roz said...

Hi Bonnie, it's great to see you post :) Loved reading about your Friday, a wonderful way to start the weekend. Fun spankings are the best :) Randy's dialogue would have cracked me up too.

Re the blogroll,, that's a lot of blogs! I think the colour coding is great and is enough for the reader to find what they want.

Thanks for sharing the article. Looking forward to reading the transcript :)


Hermione said...

Hi Bonnie,

It was great to read about a Friday spanking, and such a funny one at that. It really takes me back to the early days of this blog. I also remember when surveys and quizzes were a regular feature here. It would be fun to see them again.

I like the colour-coding. I wouldn't mind seeing "new" beside recent additions, but that would entail a lot of extra work to remove, and how to remember when you added them? The only easy way around this would be to add all new blogs on the first of each month, and remove "new" on the first day of the following month when you add the next batch.

The article was interesting, although the fact that some men seem to think it's okay to slap or hit during sex brings to mind the Jian Ghomeshi case here in Canada.

Always good to see your name come up on my blogroll. I Love the color coding. There are so many blogs, I couldn't possibly visit them all, so I appreciate the color coding so I can pick those that are of interest to me.
Thank you Bonnie, Ronnie and Hermione for your hard work.

Bonnie said...

Cat - Thanks. Randy tries to get into his role, but his improv skills are inconsistent. I'll look into returning the New designation.

Roz - Thank you!

Hermione - I am thinking about some new survey topics. Perhaps, I'll post one and see how many readers participate.

I'm going to try bringing back the New designator and clearing it out every so often. I don't know how well that will work, but we'll see.

I didn't know about Jian Ghomeshi, so I looked him up. I see your point.

Leigh - Thank you for sticking with us!

Terpsichore said...

sounds like a fun Friday evening :-) I think the color coding is a nice way of organizing and simplifying the long list of blogs so people can easily search what they are interested in... hugs

Anastasia Vitsky said...

Ooh, you're back! How did I miss this? How great to see you're still around.

I think humor in a spanking is great! Why not enjoy yourselves? :D

I can't say much about the blogroll as right now I can't look. Too hard to think about beloved bloggers who are no longer with us. :( But I never had any problems with your blogroll and was glad to use it. So thank you!

ronnie said...

Thanks for the mention Bonnie. I enjoy searching for new blogs though I'll never be as good at you.

I had a good laugh at your scene.

Role play is a lot of fun for my boyfriend and I. We are not into "punishment" unless it is part of a role play.

But it is sure not easy. I can't count the number of times one of us, usually me, just can't help but burst into giggles. Usually I get the "now we have to start over". Oh yeah, right. Like that is going to stop the giggles.

Haven't read the mainstream thing yet, but I can say this, there are not that many "regular" porn movies made now (yeah, we have a collection :D , some are getting VERY female friendly)where an actress or 2 doesn't end up with some red hand prints on her butt (and sometimes more colorful) by the end of the scene. LOVE seeing that.

Anyways, thanks for the fun read.
