Ramblings on Paddles and Things

Well its Wednesday and in our house it means 'Maintenance Spanking Day'.  It seems like just yesterday that we recorded our video of one of those Maintenance Spankings.  But that video was taken two weeks ago.  And so far the two videos have racked up a total of over 15,000 views between the two of them on both YouTube and SpankingTube.

So far we have received eight comments on our blog and a few on SpankingTube too.  One of those indicated he thought Cora's dialogue to be 'corney but hilarious'.  Others thought it was 'cute', 'short but to the point' and several liked the fact that I was wearing her panties.  In fact one of the comments 'hoped I would steal more panties, soon'.  Not to worry, I will likely maintain my status as a 'panty thief' and will no doubt get 'caught'.

That's My Panties!!!
I have been spending time getting caught up with our Tumblr sites.  I keep two sites, 'SpankedbymyLady' and 'SpankedbyWife' that I post the pix that are posted here.  I still have a post to catch up with (two now with this one) and I have embedded links to our videos too.
Cora the Girdle Model
You may also be aware that Cora models some of her lingerie (girdles, specifically) and has quite a following on one of the Yahoo Groups.  I have created a Tumblr site, 'LadyCorasGirdles' where I have been posting pictures and videos from her girdle modeling sessions.  And since I have been updating things, her pictures are starting to show up in other sites as her pix are 'ReBlogged'. 

Well, today is Wednesday and I expect that Cora will be applying her Ebony Hairbrush later.  We don't plan on pictures or videos so I expect more of a 'no-nonsense' type of spanking.  Its fun to create videos and take pictures but it does take away some of the focus on getting spanked.  I am looking forward to an 'old fashioned, good, hard spanking' from Cora today. 

Last Wednesday as I was waiting for Cora to deliver last week's maintenance spanking, I thought I'd make an attempt at writing a story.  I thought it would really get me into the mood and indeed it did.  I've thought about writing for quite some time but wasn't sure where to start.  But last Wednesday I just started writing.  Writing about my memories of fifth grade and how my female teacher would offer a choice if she caught you mis-behaving, like talking out of turn in class.  'Spats or Sentences' was the term used and you could either write 500 lines or take a paddling.  Now, I was very much aware of my own sexual attraction to the idea of getting paddled by a strict, female authority figure.  And while I was disciplined several times for things like talking in class, I never had the nerve to take a paddling.  Something I still regret. So I started writing a story about what would happen if I had chosen a paddling. 

One of the first paddles I purchased was a classic 'school paddle'.  It's 18 inches long overall with the handle taking up about 6 inches.  The width is 3-1/2 inches and its about half an inch thick.  Its made out of a light wood, perhaps ash or maple and has a natural finish.  My memories of the paddles used during my grade school years was very similar.  At least that's what I remembered.  So its a little smaller than our classic Spencer and a lot lighter than the PurpleHeart paddle. 
That's the School Paddle in the Middle
So I pulled it off Cora's rack.  I was thinking that I might ask Cora to apply a dozen or so hard swats so that the description in my story might be more accurate.  However, I had completed my story before I could make my request to Cora.  But that paddle remained sitting on our table.  And it did not go unused.

The next day Cora and I got into a 'discussion'.  Well maybe more than just a discussion.  I won't go into the details but lets just say that we both had a strong opinion about something and neither of us was willing to cave.  Don't get me wrong, we were not in a 'fight' or even an argument but were having a light hearted disagreement.
Cora with Her Trusty Spencer
It didn't take very long for Cora to decide to drive her point home.  With a paddle, that is.  So soon I found myself bent over our kitchen table.  Now, normally Cora would go for her Spencer Paddle but she couldn't help but noticing the 'school paddle' still sitting conveniently on the table and decided to grab it.  I soon found myself getting paddled.  And quite hard, too.  No holding back this time.  Cora was determined to get me to change my mind and agree with her. 

Keep in mind that we were both laughing our way through this discussion but I wasn't about to give in.  However, Cora wasn't about to give in, either.  "So, do you agree with me, now," she kept asking, accentuating her point with another hard swat of the paddle.  "No, Ma'am," I politely disagreed.  "Whack," was her reply.  Well, this went on for quite a while and I was really feeling the heat and sting from her paddling.
Cora Lands a Good One!
What the outcome was doesn't matter but finally we both backed down.  But the bottom line (I love those puns!) was that Cora had forgotten how much she likes using that paddle.  I think my future will include a number of padding's from it.  I won't complain. 

Oh and I think I got sufficient results for the research I needed for my story. And my story has been submitted for publishing.  I'll post more on the status of it when I hear back from the publisher.

Wednesday is Spanking Day - Part 2

And part 2 is reserved for when Ms. Cora has found my behavior to warrant additional discipline.  In our maintenance spanking arrangement this second part involves Cora applying her Spencer Paddle to my naughty behind.

I think a couple of comments are in order here.  Note that the overall spanking I received last Wednesday was relatively short; about 3 minutes combined.  Compare that to the previous week's session which was about 15 minutes (based upon the music that was playing).  And that week's maintenance spanking did not even require a second part (I was such a good husband!)

So chalk up the shortness to the fact that we haven't done a video for a while.  And there is so many things requiring attention during the creation of a video.  Not that we're making excuses but both Cora and I learn quite a bit from the process.  And we really do appreciate the comments we receive and they also provide great input on how we can improve things. 

So here is the rest of the video:


And as I am writing this, next Wednesday is only two days away!

Wednesday is Spanking Day- Part 1

Two days ago (Wednesday) was the day for my scheduled maintenance spanking.  And I did get spanked.  And we set up the video cameras.
Its Wednesday and You're Getting a Spanking!

Its been over a year since we posted one of our videos but after wanting to do another, finally here it is.  We had loads of fun setting things up with both our video cameras.

Over My Knee, NOW!

So rather than write a whole lot about what happened, here it its.  Cora is quite the actress and her entire dialog was totally spontaneous and un-rehearsed.




Oh and this is just the first part of my spanking for the day.  There is a second part in which Cora applied her Spencer Paddle to my naughty backside.  We'll post it when we get it out of the editing studio.

Cora's Spanking Chair

I think it may be obvious that Cora and I both prefer the Over-The-Knee position for spanking.  And the OTK position dictates a certain group of spanking implements that work better for the shorter distance between her hand and my bottom.  Thus hairbrushes, OTK Spanking Paddles and her hand are the implements that work best for the OTK position. Now that's not to say that I will receive my share from her larger paddles but that works much better when I am just bent over in front of her and she is standing to my left side in delivering the paddle's kiss.

The OTK position requires Cora to be in a sitting position.  In the past we have used our couch, bed and our kitchen chairs.  However, I have always wanted to find the 'perfect' chair for Cora to use when taking me over her knee for one of my spankings.  While comfortable, the bed and couch just didn't seem to all me to present my bottom in quite the right way and our kitchen chairs are just a little bit too close to the floor.

Yesterday, we were 'out and about' and one of our stops was to be 'Bed, Bath and Beyond'.  Cora loves shopping there and always carries a plethora of coupons from them.  Our usual BB&B store is located in one of those small neighborhood shopping centers but on this occasion we were at one of the major shopping malls in our area.  We had been in this store in the past but were unprepared for the expansion that this particular BB&B had undergone.  Wow!  This store seemed to have everything.  From Coffee, Tea, giant Tootsie Pops, pots and pans, spatulas, kites, bedding, pillows, MP3 speakers and so on, and so on.

So it was no surprise when we stumbled upon a selection of furniture.  There was a kiosk with a few kitchen stools displayed about eye level with boxed items tucked underneath.  I spotted a really nice looking kitchen stool that featured a nicely leather clad seat that had a gentle curve.  It was labeled as a 'Saddle Stool'.  Cora saw me looking at it and immediately instructed me to "take it down and put it on the floor so I can sit in it".  Down it came and Cora found it to be very comfortable.  She then surprised me by saying, "I want to see what its like to have you over my lap". 

Really?  Here in the store?  Well, there was no refusing and quite frankly there was an erotic rush associated with taking the risk of 'getting caught'.  So over I went.  Right there in the store in the classic 'Over-the-Knee' position.  Anyone who might wander by couldn't miss the intent.

Cora felt really comfortable with me over her lap and we decided to purchase one.  Not only did it seem quite sturdy but it was priced right and Cora had coupons!  Oh and it was made in the USA (Illinois).  I was certainly excited that Cora also agreed that we needed a dedicated spanking chair.

When we returned home I was anxious to put the chair together and started to unpack the parts.  Assembly was simple requiring only eight fasteners.  However in my haste to assemble the chair, I knocked over a glass of water.  The result was a resounding 'crash' and broken glass and water all over the floor.  Needless to say, Cora was not happy.  "Just wait until your Wednesday spanking", she said.  "You're really going to get it then!"

Our Wednesday maintenance spanking regimen consists of two parts; an OTK spanking and a second phase for me to atone for any specific misbehavior during the preceding week.  Up to now my Wednesday spankings had only consisted of the first part.  Tomorrow will be the first time Cora will administer a second part to my spanking.  I'm not sure how she will carry out the second phase but I'm guessing it will include a session with one of her larger paddles, most likely the Spencer Paddle.  For me there is always an erotic aspect of an upcoming spanking but this time there is an element of fear and maybe a little dread added knowing that I've got more that the usual OTK spanking coming.  I'm sure there will be more to come in a later post regarding the outcome.

It may even include some time on her 'Chair of Discipline', something that Cora has thought up as an alternative to 'corner time'.

Once the mess was cleared up I did finish putting the chair together.  I wanted Cora to sit in it and let me take a few pictures.  It certainly looks like it will fulfill its function as the perfect 'spanking chair'.

Its 24 inches off the floor which is a full 6 inches taller than our kitchen chairs.  It has no arms and no back to restrict Cora when swinging her hairbrush or paddle.

 When Cora sits back in it and I am draped over her lap the center of gravity should make it quite comfortable for her.  And at its height I will have less support from my arms and legs which should put my bottom in a better position for Cora to apply her hairbrush, paddle or hand.  Indeed I will be at her 'mercy'.
Tomorrow should be an interesting day!

Wednesday is Maintenance Spanking Day

Cora and I have attempted to adopt a weekly maintenance spanking schedule.  We have chosen Wednesday as the day.  One of the reasons we have adopted the idea of maintenance spankings is so that we don't loose site of my need and desire to be spanked and her desires to administer a sound spanking.  There are benefits to both of us but sometimes its just too easy to let things go.

We have related the influences from reading Ms. Francy's wonderful books in previous posts.  Cora especially, now better understands the how's and whys and delivers a 'good and hard' spanking, just like I want and need. Cora finds stepping up the intensity is satisfying to her, too.  Apparently very satisfying!

So yesterday (Wednesday), Cora announced, "today is the day and I'm going to spank you good and hard!"  After our morning coffee rituals Cora retired to the bedroom to get dressed.  Once ready, she proceeded to select the implements she planned on using.  These included: which included her new (and now favorite) Ebony Hairbrush, her OTK Spanking Paddle, her Leda Hairbrush and finally the Bottom Burner, a purpleheart paddle that we purchased from the good people at Caniac.

Her Ebony Hairbrush
(her new favorite)
Her OTK Spanking Paddle

Her Nu-West/Leda Hairbrush
And

Her Caniac Bottom Burner
Once situated in the middle of our couch she beckoned me to her.  "Put on some music", she instructed.  In the past some of the selections from Led Zeppelin seemed to inspire her (she loves to spank with the beat of drummer, John Bonham), so I selected the play list that has our collection stored.  I hit 'random' and then placed myself over Cora's waiting lap.  And inspired she was.  She proceeded to warm me up with a short hand spanking then proceeded to her other 'WAD's (Weapons of Ass Destruction). 
Ebony Hairbrush Ready to Strike
I had hoped to turn on our video cameras and capture the whole thing on video.  However, Cora said, "No, not this time" and delivered a volley of spanks with her hairbrush to accentuate her instruction.  "And if you ask again, I'll paddle you just like that!"  She then switched from hairbrush to paddle to the other paddle to another hairbrush, and so on.  Cora's dialogue included her observations of the different implements, how they sounded on impact and how they felt in her hand.  One comment was that it took lots of effort to spank me with the Caniac paddle and that the Ebony hairbrush took much less effort for about the same impact.  Of course being on the receiving end, I felt quite an impact from both.  They are all interestingly different.

So on she went.  I know that her spanking spanned three songs and based on my memory of the songs that came up, my spanking lasted a solid 15 minutes (maybe more).  Needless to say, I felt one heck of a sting.

Once Cora finished up I talked her into letting me get our camera out so that I could show the results of her spanking.
Wednesday's Results: A Spanking From Cora

  Just for 'fun' I am including a pic taken about two years ago to show the contrast.
Results from Two Years Ago
Believe me, Cora's recent spankings are much more intense then they were back then.  The marks will last for at least 5 days and probably a week.  Just in time for my next maintenance spanking.  Today (Thursday) I am still feeling a noticeable sting and after an inspection, Cora indicates I'm still quite red.  Thank you Ms. Francy!

How to Spank Your Man

... and 'Spanking the Male Mind'.

These are two books by Ms. Francy. 

"You want me to do WHATTT?"
"Chances are, if your reading this book the man in your life has asked you to spank him".

This is the opening of Chapter 1 of  'Spanking the Male Mind'.
Its subtitle reads, "The Savvy Woman's Guide to Understanding Domestic Discipline".

"Why Spank My Man?
Three words ... he likes it.
And three more words ... you will too!"

These words of wisdom appears at the beginning of Chapter 1 of  'How to Spank Your Man'.
'How to Spank Your Man' is subtitled "The Nice Girl's Fully Illustrated Guide to Keeping Her Guy Happy".

These two wonderfully composed books by Ms. Francy are written from the female point of view and are directed toward the female half of a couple whose male part wishes to submit to discipline from his lady.  The books are humorous, fun, easy to read and as Cora says, "down to earth".  Ms. Francy also illustrated the books, herself and has graciously given us permission to use some of them here.

We have made references to Ms. Francy's books in several previous posts.  And some of you have been asking for more information.  We added a link to her site where you can purchase them.  Its over on the right side of our blog under the heading 'FLR and Other Resources'.  Go there.  Buy both her books.  Tell her Cora and Ken sent you.  Then give them to your wife or girlfriend and prepare to get spanked harder and better than ever before! (Note: Ms. Francy answers requests for her books manually and may take a day or two for her to respond.  Be patient; its worth the wait).

In the morning hours before Cora rises, I like to surf the web and one of the things I do is read stories.  Erotic stories about men getting spanked by authoritative women.  We have posted articles referring to the 'Library of Spanking Fiction' several times and there is a link to it on our blog, too.  However there are other sites that feature stories of erotic spanking with many of them dealing with women spanking their naughty men.

One of these sites is 'Literotica.Com'.  The stories there are a little of the 'heavier' side and many are probably best categorized as 'BDSM'.  However one day I discovered two stories that are now part of my 'favorites'. 

One of the stories, 'Welcome Home' describes a man who is called away from home on a trip by himself.  Prior to leaving, he tucks a copy of Ms. Francy's book, 'Spanking the Male Mind' under his wife's pillow, hoping she will read it.  Read it she does and the story ends with him returning to find his wife handing him a hairbrush after unpacking with instructions to meet her in the family room.  You probably know how it ends.
Another story by this author, 'The Book' describes the interactions of a couple on a Saturday night who are both in rather bad moods.  After some jousting between them the wife finally agrees to her husbands request to read Chapter 9 of Ms. Francy's book, 'How to Spank Your Man'.  Previously she had put off her husband's request to take him over her knee and spank him.  She reluctantly gives in to her husband's request to read Ms. Francy's book, something she had put off in the past.  What she found was that she became totally engrossed in Mr. Francy's book and her bad mood was quickly changing.

Now, the title of Chapter 9 of  'How to Spank Your Man' is 'Swatting for Beginners'.  It covers the basics of where and how to spank a naughty man safely but thoroughly. 

One of the sections is 'Getting Yourself Into a Bossy Mood' which is exactly what happens in the story.  And as in 'Welcome Home', I'm sure you can figure out the ending of this story, too.

So I was wondering if there was a real Ms. Francy and if the books were real or not.  A quick inquiry of my search engine (I like Dogpile) found a link to Ms. Francy's site.

Wow! There really is a Ms. Francy and her books can be easily purchased from her site.  So I risked a few dollars and invested in them.  They are only available in e-Book form, and since Ms. Francy replies manually, it might take a while until she gets on-line (but its worth the wait!).  I started reading the first book in the series, 'Spanking the Male Mind' and found that Ms. Francy really had me 'nailed'.  It was like she was looking into the deepest, darkest part of my naughty brain and telling me what was there.  And she was telling me things that I didn't even know were there.  But her description of that part of me rang true.  It was almost scary.

"I've got to share these with Cora" was one of my first thoughts.  So one morning over our coffee ritual I told Cora about Ms. Francy's books and asked if she would take a look.  "Sure" she replied, "but I want a printed copy".

So off I went to print out the books.  I even found nice binders for Cora so that she could easily read them at her leisure. 

And read them she did.  With amazing results.  In Chapter 9 of 'How to Spank Your Man, Ms. Francy addresses 'How Hard can you spank?"  The answer in the first line of this section states, "Well, from my experience, its best to err on the too hard side than the too light side."  I know this will resonate with many of the men who read this.  If they are lucky enough to be with women who will spank them, I think that most would wish their wife or girlfriend would spank harder.  Such was the case with Cora. 
Now, Cora has been spanking me for several years and has gotten better and better over the years.  She has really learned how to 'read' me and knows exactly where to apply her paddle or hairbrush.  She can light my bottom up quite nicely. 

However, I had sensed that she would modulate the intensity of her spanking based upon my reaction, both verbal and physical.  If I uttered an Ooo,  Aww, or Ouch and jerked in reaction to a particularly hard swat, she seemed to back off, just a bit.  Naturally, in the moment I couldn't mention that she should spank harder.  And if I mentioned it later, she would acknowledge my observation.
However, it wasn't until she read Ms. Francy's books that she finally realized that she shouldn't back off at all.  It wasn't what I wanted; it wasn't what I needed;  and quite frankly Cora found that she really didn't want to back off either.  In fact I think she now finds that she really enjoys putting the heat to my seat and admiring the results of her discipline efforts.  And I know that Cora loves the stress relief that giving me a good, hard spanking results in and the power rush that accompanies it, too.

So, for us Ms. Francy's books have hit a home run.  They may not be the perfect guide for everyone but I am guessing that there are lots of readers of this blog that they would work well for.  Especially for you couples where the wife or girlfriend may be reluctant to engage in this kind of activity.  Mr. Francy does a great job of explaining that a woman spanking her guy is not an evil activity but instead something to have fun with and that there are benefits to be reaped from spanking her man.  She lists ten benefits in 'Spanking the Male Mind' and goes on to address the changing power dynamics of women in their relationships to their men.

Many of you have looked to the Disciplinary Wives Club for information into the concept of Female Led Relationships.  We have been huge fans of the DWC and have purchased many of their products.  However Ms. Francy addresses 'Spanking Lifestyle Choices' in Chapter 4 of 'Spanking the Male Mind' and discusses the differences between her and Aunt Kay.  One thing she pointed out really hit home with me.  And that is that the eroticism of a woman spanking a man is a good thing.  I have quoted Ms. Deirdre (Spanking My Husband blog) many times with the concept that getting spanked by Cora is an erotic expression of my submission to her.  Yes, there is something erotic for me about getting spanked.  Even if I'm getting spanked as a punishment for some bad behavior.  Ms. Francy's explanation is very clear and concise.  You should read it!
I won't try to re-write Ms. Francy's books here.  She did a better job of that than I could ever hope to.  So if you like what you have read, I'd suggest you hop on over to her website and purchase her books.  She has a 'special price' when you purchase both 'Spanking the Male Mind' and 'How to Spank Your Man'. 

Oh, and Cora and I don't get any compensation from the sales of her books.  All we get is the satisfaction that perhaps there may be a few more women who come to the realization that its only natural to take on the role of disciplinarian of their men.  And that the results include stronger relationships and the fulfillment of greater bond of love.
 
And finally, Ms. Francy has offered to let me interview her.  She has asked me to submit some questions and agreed to answer them.  So, I would suggest that if you would like to participate in the questions, please feel free to leave a comment or send us an e-Mail.  I'll compose all appropriate questions along with our own, to Ms. Francy and post the results at a later time.

Nu-West/Leda - New Activity

It was February, 2013 that an announcement was posted on the Nu-West/Leda site that Ed Lee had passed away.  This was certainly a sad day as I know that many of us were big fans and found that Nu-West/Leda was one of the very first sources of Domestic Discipline materials.  I still treasure a large collection of LedaGrams, Ma'am's, and video on tape, film and DVDs.

Over the past year, every once in a while, I'd look at their site to see if anything was happening.  Up until just a few days ago nothing had changed from the February announcement.  Then a few days ago, a new announcement appeared, something like, "New Videos Coming 2014"
followed by, "Rest In Peace 'The Great' Ed Lee".

Today, the site looks like its back and open for business.  I didn't notice any new videos but their old catalog appears to be available.  Hopefully there will be new videos of some of the familiar Leda Ladies we have seen over the years.  And maybe some new ones, too.
We were honored when Ed Lee allowed us to announce the Leda Ladies book.



I hope to see Leda Ladies like Debra and Vanna appear again.

One of the nicest things Ed Lee did for us was to designate Cora as an honorary 'Leda Lady'.
