Its Been Quite a Week

Wow!  Its been quite a week.  With all the issue with the Google blog policy and such.  We're really delighted to see that its behind us, at least for now.  And then there was the issues surrounding our purchase of panties but we did receive confirmation that most of them have been shipped!  And it appears that they will all arrive on Tuesday.  Finally!

And this will be the eighth post since February 20.  I can't remember a spell where we have posted this often.  And we still have yet to post part two of the 'Spanking Spectacular' and unless there more chaos from something like a Google policy issue, we'll post it in a few days..  Actually there will be a photo from that session to help illustrate what happened Friday afternoon.

It seems as though during the early hours of Friday morning, I pulled the covers off Cora.  Naturally she wasn't happy but grabbed another blanket that she keeps handy for just such an incident.  Seems as though I've done it before.

During our morning coffee discussions later in the morning, Cora informed me that I had earned a spanking for pulling the covers off of her.  OK, I won't disagree that I've earned a spanking from Cora.  After all that's part of our agreement as part of our FLR arrangement.

Sometimes, Cora will assign a session of her discipline and never follow through.  I guess she gets distracted with the events of the day.  However, I wanted to make sure that she didn't forget this one.
Cora's Line-Up of WAD's Ready for Action

We often take a quick nap in the afternoon and Friday was no exception.  Upon rising I took our dogs outside and then prepared for getting a spanking from Cora.  During this time, Cora was getting dressed for the evening.  It seemed like she was taking forever as I had lined up four of Cora's WAD's (Weapons of Ass Destruction - my Ass!) on our kitchen counter.  I had prepared myself by wearing a pair of black panties which Cora had handed down to me.
These are the Black Panties I was Wearing

Finally, she descended the stairs wearing a nice, tight pair of jeans and a top appropriate for the evening.  She found me bent over the table and the paddles ready for use.  I detected a bit of a giggle but she didn't hesitate.  She grabbed the first strap and laid the first stroke on my waiting bottom.  I didn't count but it wasn't long before she switched to the second strap and spanked me with that for a while.  Next she applied her PurpleHeart paddle, too but first pulled my panties down to expose my bare bottom.

Its interesting the different effects of leather versus wood.  However I was very aware that she had switched to the much heavier PurpleHeart paddle.  I hadn't looked back during the time I had received the straps from Cora but I did turn around to verify the fact that she was using the PurpleHeart.

Even if I say so myself, I think Cora has a fabulous figure.  And in turning my head to check out what was burning my bottom, I had a lovely view of Cora's curves.  Lovely indeed!  Oh, if  all women realized the power they hold in their curves.
The View From My Position as Spankee

Finally, Cora set the PurpleHeart down and picked up the Spencer.  I think she planned to make a point with that paddle and began spanking me a bit harder that previously.  I have described what its like getting paddled with the Spencer before but it never ceases to get my attention.  You see, the small holes in the Spencer create a whistling sound when swung with enough velocity.  And Cora was putting on the velocity.  I heard that characteristic whistle just before feeling its stinging punishment.  Stinging indeed.

I think she applied twelve of her best with the Spencer paddle but somewhere in the middle asked me if she was paddling me too hard.  I guess my ooo's, ahhh's and eeek's where telling her that she was definitely getting through to me.  I replied, "No" and she continued paddling me.
Photo from a Week Ago but Almost Identical to Friday Night's Paddling

Finally, she stopped and told me to get up.  I don't think the entire session took more than five minutes but I could sure feel the sting.  And she remarked, "That sure felt good to me and it sure was a stress reliever".

Now, there is a 'Smart-Assed Masochist' (SAM) in me and later that evening it decided to come out.  "Do you remember the question you asked me", I said to her.  "No, I don't", she replied.  "Well, you asked if you were paddling me too hard".  Her response was, "Oh, yes I remember and you said that I wasn't".

Then the SAM in me came out.  "Well, why didn't you ask the other question", I said.  She responded, "What do you mean?"  "Well why didn't you ask if you were not paddling me hard enough!", I said.

Her response was one of those looks only women are capable of.  I just smiled back.  So next time, I expect Cora will get her revenge for questioning her ability to paddle a naughty husband like me.  When that happens I'm sure I'll be thinking, "Should I have thought about being careful what I ask for?"

Shopping For Panties Should Be Simple - Right?

Wrong!

A week ago I posted about our little panty shopping trip and my discovery of the joys of wearing panties.  I've almost converted to a full time panty wearing guy.  However we still needed to round out our collection of new panties.  And even though I could wear the white pair we purchased during that panty shopping spree, I found that I really need the next size up.
Panties Originally Purchased For Me

Since we only found one pair of panties in black for Cora at the Mall, we thought we'd do a little shopping on-line.  We dialed into the web site of the store from which we had made our purchase earlier in the day.  It didn't take long to find the same ones on their site and we ordered about a half dozen for Cora in her preferred color black and one pair in white for me in one size larger.  We completed our purchase and expected that in five or six days the panties would arrive.

Wrong!

Tuesday morning I received notification that the order for Cora's black panties had been cancelled.  Apparently my single pair was still in stock.  I called the service number to confirm that Cora's panties were no longer available and to find out when my pair had been shipped.  Turns out that my pair had not even been shipped.  And this was almost a full week after placing our order.  It seemed to me that we'd have to go back to square one so I just cancelled the entire order.

Now I understand the logistics of their business but it seems like it took a long time for them to notify me that they were out of stock black panties.  And why did their web site show them as 'In Stock' when we visited their site??? No wonder some of the old established stores are struggling to stay in business.

OK, off to good old Amazon I went.  I found the same Vanity Fair panties in both sizes and both colors.  I decided to make sure Cora had a good supply and ordered ten pair for her.  I ordered a few for me and placed my order.  That was the three days ago.

I've always had good luck with Amazon and have found that things usually get shipped right away.  Usually.  But up until this morning our panty order was in some kind of limbo with the status showing 'Preparing for Shipment'.  This morning the status changed to 'Shipping Today' but so far we haven't received notification that they have actually shipped.  I can only hope that they will be on the way.  Until they arrive I'm just going to have to be happy with some of Cora's 'Hand-Me-Down' panties.

Oh, and in that same post I mentioned that I might try some 'SpanX' too.  Well, I did order two different pairs - a week ago!  I did receive the confirmation of shipping but the tracking seems very strange.  One pair shows 'arriving shipping partner facility' and the other 'arrived at the origin sort facility'.  So I'm not even sure they are on their way at all.

So is it just me or is the Universe in 'Park'? And why should shopping for panties be so difficult??????

BREAKING NEWS!!!!

This Just In:

Hermione just posted a link to an announcement from the Google blogger team.  The announcement reads as follows:

Hello everyone,

This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy. We’ve had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we’ve decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn.  

Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as “adult” so that they can be placed behind an “adult content” warning page.

Bloggers whose content is consistent with this and other policies do not need to make any changes to their blogs.

Thank you for your continued feedback.  

The Blogger Team

Here is the link to the announcement:

Thanks to Hermione for posting this information and thanks to anyone who took the time to post on the blogger forum.  The influx of forum posts apparently resulted in changing their mind.

Hurray for us.


This Blog will now return to its regularly scheduled programming.   Really!!!

Censorship - A Follow-Up

It was just after noon on Monday (just two days ago) that we received the notification from the blogger group at Google announcing their new policy regarding the display of adult photos and videos, specifically "no longer allow blogs that contain sexually  explicit or graphic nude images or video"  Our post in response to their announcement contains the full text of their new policy.

Yesterday I spent some time on the blogger forum and found a flood of inquiries regarding this issue. Its obvious that their announcement stuck a nerve in many of us who post adult material.  Unfortunately there is very little specific answers to the questions posted.  Most importantly, the issue of what constitutes 'sexually explicit or graphic nude images'.  And who gets to make the decisions.  Instead, replies from the blogger representatives like, "Worry about what happens, when it happens.  The fact is, nobody know what will happen - because you have one month, to clean up your act.  And nobody knows what will happen, during that month." and "All of these blog owners have different questions - and not all of them have been answered, yet."

Perhaps the level of frustration was coming out from one of the reps when trying to answer what was the meaning of the terms as addressed in the new policy and the FAQ's came out with the following reply: "Unfortunately, too many people object to the FAQ, as "vague and useless", among other less objective terms.  Unfortunately, it's what we have to work with."

In many ways I felt sorry for the reps trying to answer questions beyond the resources available to them.  Obviously they were left with nothing but chaos and whomever made these policies did not provide them with details of how it was intended to be applied.  Indeed, "Unfortunately, it's what we have to work with"!!!???

I submitted my own question on the forum.  Hoping to elicit a real answer I held back my frustration and submitted a question with a positive attitude.

me  Level 1 (Spankedbywife)
Feb 24
Today is the fifth anniversary of our blog, SpankedbymyLady.blogspot.com.  We have been hosting a blog that encourages people to adopt a Female Led Relationship (FLR) lifestyle.  We don't consider our content (all generated by us) to be graphic in nature however we do post photos of my wife spanking my bare bottom.  No genitals are displayed in these photos.
Your new policy does not well define, "sexually explicit or graphic nude images".  Also your new policy indicates that you'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or   where there are other substantial benefits to the public.
Which is it?  We like to think that our blog fits into some of the exception categories.
We have enjoyed five years of you providing a wonderful tool for us to use and all for free.  However, if we would be in violation of your new policy, its likely that we would go elsewhere.
Ken

Apparently it worked as later that evening I received the following reply:

Hi Ken,
Thanks for taking the time to post here. Just to let you know, while I'm not sure about your specific case the general guidelines are here: Blogger Content Policy
I'll also mention Blogger content policy change - porn is going away which is where we'll be posting updates/answers about common questions that users like you have.
From the information that you provided (I have not visited your blog), as long as you maintain the adult interstitial you probably can continue without needing to set your blog to private.  This is not a guarantee that the Blogger Team will take no action concerning your blog.
If you do decide to move to another platform we respect your decision and hope that you'll continue to freely express yourself.
Hope this helps you understand more, and sorry I can't offer more clarification.

(Note that the Bold Blue were hyperlinks in the forum reply but don't work here).

So I did receive a reply but it really didn't answer my questions.  The good news is that he did indicated that we can PROBABLY continue without being set to private.  However, later in the reply, he mentioned that "this is not a guarantee that the Blogger Team will take no action concerning your blog."

So at this time we plan to continue with our blog.  My bare bottom and all.  I guess that bare bottoms are not as bad as other parts of the anatomy.  After all mainstream TV sometimes shows the bare bottoms of babies.  Is my bottom that much different.  Well maybe a few pounds and that red color.

However just to have alternatives, we have secured 'WWW.SpankedbymyLady.Com'.  So we will be prepared to set up a website there and continue.  Or we could rely on Tumblr to post our more 'offensive' photos.  At this time it appears that almost anything goes there, but its still under control of someone else.

I've seen this issue pop up in several places including Hermione's Heart blog and a topic on FetLife.  I would invite any other bloggers to chime in.  Also the blogger forum is located here:

Watch this space!

We now return this blog to its regularly scheduled program!

Fifth Anniversary Spanking Spectular - Part I


Its hard to believe but today marks the five-year anniversary of our little blog.  Our first post was simply:

This is my first venture into the world of Blogging.

I am a 62 year old male, newly retired and partnered with a wonderful Lady. We live in Seattle, WA. Together, we have ventured into a 'Female Led Relationship'. I am hoping to describe our relationship from my own point of view and see where this goes from there.

And now five years have elapsed!  Of course I'm no longer 62 but I'm still together with that wonderful Lady.  Over the course of five years we've shared lots of aspects of our relationship and I hope have helped convince some of the women out there that spanking your naughty mate isn't so abnormal after all.

And I continue to get spanked by Cora.  A couple of posts ago we described how we were going to schedule a session on what was last Saturday, not for any particular reason other than to emphasize that Cora is still in charge.
Cora Preparing Her Selection of WAD's
Indeed that session went right on schedule and took enough photos to put together another one of our Photo Story Posts.  In fact there were so many photos that it will be posted in two parts.  In the first part, Cora takes after me with her OTK Spanking Paddle and her Ebony Hairbrush.  In the second part I bend over the table and Cora delivers some rather hard discipline with her full sized Spencer and PurpleHeart paddles.
Are You Staring at Me?

So as pictured above, Cora set up her selection of spanking implements to be ready and handy.

Yes, Definitely My OTK Spanking Paddle

And Of Course My Favorite Ebony Hairbrush
Why am I Happy?  'Cause Someone's Gonna Get a Spankin!
Armed with her WAD's of choice, Cora called me for my discipline session.  I was looking forward to it and immediately reported to her.  She sat on our couch and over her knee I went.  She first spanked me with her OTK Spanking Paddle.



At this point it was still Panties Up, as you can see.  As noted before, Cora likes to spank a bit harder when I'm wearing panties.


The OTK Spanking Paddle was followed by Cora's Favorite Ebony Hairbrush and down came my Panties.

The Ebony Hairbrush is heavier than any of Cora's other Hairbrushes and it really leaves a sting.  It also has a quite loud 'crack' when it connects.  My senses were on overload but I was really enjoying the discipline from this Goddess.



Cora, the Happy Spanker was really enjoying spanking me that day.


As usual, Cora's personality really came out in these photos.  I just love the determined look on her face in this one.


I don't think any of our previous photos show my naughty bottom as red as these photos do.


Finally, Cora concluded this phase of my discipline.  I must admit that I wanted more.  But not to worry, I would be facing Cora's paddles soon.  Look for part two of our Spanking Spectacular in a few days.

Censorship!

The document below appeared in Leda's publication of Ma'am #1 as published in 1987.


I have heard that Ed Lee fought hard to prevent his publications from being Censored and for the most part appears to have been successful.  Thus he left us a legacy of some wonderful videos and publications that we all cherish to this day. It may be a bit difficult to read the fine print from that document but it describes the attempts by the Meese Commission and the 'New Right' movement against free expression of all sorts.  Of course this was during the Conservative Regan era.

I try to keep my politics out of our blog as I know that its read by people all over the political spectrum, however I received an e-Mail from the blogger group at Google that has seriously upset me.  So here comes a political rant.

Here are the first two paragraphs from their e-Mail:

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content  
Policy that may affect your account.


In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually  
explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity  
presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or  
where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking  
action on the content.


First I want to say that I appreciate being able to post our blog using their resources, especially since they don't charge me a fee for such privileges.  That said I must admit that I'm quite upset.  There are some very nebulous and even conflicting instructions in their missive.  For example, just what constitutes "sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video"?  And who gets to choose?  Someone like Mike Huckabee or the American Family Association?

And what do they mean by saying the "we'll STILL allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts ...".  Which is it?

Here is the third paragraph:

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this  
policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified  
as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted,  
but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the  
blog will be able to see the content we've made private.


So it appears that they will shut down public access for any blog they believe violates their new policy even though it is not clear what would violate their policy.  And don't they already have an 'Adult Content' warning and gateway in place?

We don't publish photos that show much nudity but we have (and will) publish photos of my bare bottom getting spanked.  And there has been (and will continue to be) photos of Cora in her sexy and oh so powerful girdles.  Will the images of my bare bottom violate their policy.  How can I find out?  Do I just keep publishing and wait for them to shut us down?

I know that other bloggers read this and I hope we see a dialogue develop on what we can do and our options.  It does sound like the only things their policy affects will be images and videos, so for those who only post text there will be nothing to worry about.  However we are very proud of the images and videos we create.  In fact tomorrow we'll be posting what we think is one of our best ones and yes, it will include photos of my bare bottom getting spanked.

Do we abandon the Google blogger?  We've got five years invested in their resources.  And if so are there other blog hosts that won't be so reactive to the right wing?

Welcome back to the era of Censorship!

Shopping For Panties - A Follow Up

We've gotten quite a response from yesterday's post on shopping for panties.  I decided to follow it up with another post to address a few of the comments, address an observation from Ms. Barbara of Scarlett Hill and to relate a story Cora told me last night regarding boys and panties.

First, Ms. Barbara viewed our post and complemented us on the photo of Cora holding up the pair of black panties.  She mentioned that she might like to use it in some of their future publications.  So I went into the archives and pulled out several other photos from that same photo session.  Ms. Barbara, you are more than welcome to use any of our photos in your great publications.

In less than 24 hours we have received some wonderful comments which deserve replies:

Merryslave - I found your blogs and you do indeed have quite a collection of panties.

Respecting Mistress - You mentioned the erotic feeling in wearing women's panties.  I agree.  And I'm not sure that I would want to hide the pantie line.  And as far as wearing our wives panties, right now I'm wearing a pair that is essentially a 'hand-me-down'.

Archedone - Wow, I didn't realize you are one of the 24/7 pantie wearing guys.  And as you indicate that Mistress R loves the way they look on you, Cora would agree that she likes seeing me in panties and also likes the way they feel on me.  And good luck on your Saturday Spanking day!

Bogey - Indeed its a rather exclusive club but I'm glad I've joined.

Baxter - While you are shopping at Kohl's with your wife, why not do what I did and hand her a pair.  If she asks, just say they aren't for her!  And I haven't forgotten your question about why Cora wears Panty Girdles.  I plan on addressing that issue soon.

Sara e - I was initially a bit concerned about posting my interest in panties but with the influx of positive comments, I've gotten much more comfortable with it.  And I have certainly gotten more comfortable wearing them!  And your observation, "Nothing like getting a spanking in my panties" certainly resonates with me, especially after my experience with Cora's paddles on my pantied bottom a couple of days ago.

Comments just keep coming in.  Here is a updated reply just received:

Mr. Bill said, "As many men can attest to, a fascination with women's panties rests with many (all?) men."
Well based on the comments it appears there are indeed lots of men fascinated with women's panties. And based upon your comment it appears that you wife makes you wear them occasionally.  Welcom to the club!

Shelly's Tom said, "Cora, with your habit of wearing elegant girdles, and Ken's heartfelt appreciation of that fashion choice, I'm amazed that you have not gone beyond panties with a bit of lycra to full-in high-waist boned and zippered panty girdles for Ken'
Well we just happen to have exactly that in our closet.  Turns out that one day while going through some travel bags we came across a zippered Panty Girdle.  It was something that I had purchased for a former lady friend, long before I met Cora.  So, it had been stashed away for a number of years.  Turns out that it fits me just fine.  It even has six garter tabs.

And just a while ago, I pulled the trigger on two different styles of SpanX.  So soon I'll be Spanked in SpanX!

Cora's Pantie Story

Last night Cora related a memory that was inspired by reading yesterday's post and I thought it was too good not to share with you.  The incident occurred during her High School days.  It seems that many of her friends would communicate with each other on the telephone to determine whose parents would be gone on a Friday or Saturday night.  The main purpose was to find a place to gather where the music could be turned up.

It seems that one time one of Cora's male classmates asked if he could have a little 'private time' with her.  Cora said, "Sure" and they went off to an unoccupied room. Cora was a bit surprised by his request, "Can I have your Panties?"  After getting over the shock of the request, she replied, "Sure".

She then removed her jeans and the panties she wore underneath and handed her panties to him.  He expressed his gratitude and then brought them up to his face and inhaled her scent.  Cora decided that she could go 'commando' the rest of the night and let him take them home.  Seems as though that's all he wanted from Cora.  She left the room but he stayed behind for a few minutes and I'm sure that we all can guess what he did during that time!

Cora was so flattered at the request for her panties that one time she saved a pair that she had worn and gave them to him!

So I'm still in for a session of Cora's Day of Discipline.  She is already in the process of getting ready.

More to come on that later.

Update at 5PM today:  Cora did discipline me.  Quite soundly as it turns out.  And we have the photos to prove it!  Look for the story in a few days (I need to edit the photos).
