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.
