Dana Specht's Signature Paddles

A while back we posted a description of the paddles that we make for Ms. Dana Specht.  These are exact copies of the paddles that were sold by Nu-West/Leda several decades ago.  I purchased two of their 'Spencer' paddles.  I had regretted not purchasing one or two of their OTK Spanking Paddles.

However, one day while browsing the internet, I noticed a picture of Ms. Dana Specht holding one of the OTK Spanking Paddles.  I figured that the OTK Spanking Paddle would have been made from the same wood used for the Spencer Paddles and with the correct proportions could make a reasonable reproduction.  But first I sent off an e-Mail to Ms. Specht asking for the basic dimensions hoping that she would respond.

Can you imagine a 'Double Lap' Spanking from these two Disciplinarians?
And respond she did.  She sent me an actual tracing of her original paddle.  Wow!  With her tracing,  off to my workshop I went and made a template.  I then began cutting out several copies from a sheet of plywood.  Both the OTK Spanking Paddle and the Spencer paddle are made from 3/8 inch thick, 7-ply birch plywood. I found a small sheet of it at our local woodworking store.  I sent two of my first results of the OTK Spanking Paddle to Ms. Specht.  It was the least I could do in return for her generosity in providing a tracing.  She responded that my copies were exact duplicates of the originals.

Later, she asked if I would be interested in making a number of paddles for her to sell.  At first I hesitated but later thought that it might be fun to contribute to the world of women spanking their men.

The first group was sent off in May, 2013 and were quickly purchased.  Another group was sent in late July and another in September.  And I just completed what will probably be the last group which were sent off about a week ago.  A total of 18 OTK Spanking Paddles and 15 Spencer Paddles were made.  At this time there is a very limited amount in stock.  So if you have ever wanted one of these classic Nu-West/Leda style paddles, now is the time.  Just log onto Ms. Specht's website (DanaSpecht.Com) and navigate to the 'Store' button, then 'Paddles'.

Prior to composing this post I thought it only appropriate for Cora to remind me what its like to take a paddling from both the OTK Spanking Paddle and the Spencer Paddle.  And in honor of Ms. Specht, I fetched our copy of the video she did for the Disciplinary Wive's Club on scolding.  Its an excellent video that demonstrates Ms. Specht's famous scolding style along with examples of her spankings, too.

I put the disk in our player, pulled one of the OTK Spanking Paddles and one of the Spencer Paddles off Cora's rack and presented myself to Cora for a paddling.  Over her lap I went and Cora began spanking me with the smaller paddle.  Cora loves to spank along with a video, especially Ms. Dana's scolding video.  Cora will match Ms. Specht swat for swat and I endured about 13 minutes of solid paddling.

Cora then beckoned me to get up and traded her OTK Spanking Paddle for the Spencer Paddle.  "Bend over and grab your knees", she ordered.  I complied and was then on the receiving end of about 15 of her best.

I don't think I need to go into the detail of what its like to be on the receiving end of a paddling with one (or both) of these virtually indestructable WAD's (Weapons of Ass Destruction).  Suffice it to say that I am sitting not so comfortably with a rather intense tingle in my bottom.  Indeed, the results show I have been thoroughly paddled.  But then no complaints.  Au Contraire!  Submitting to a paddling from Ms. Cora is an erotic experience I cherish in spite of the stinging.

Oh, and I am sure you are familiar with Ms. Specht's spanking abilities.  Her website introduces her as a "World Renowned Disciplinarian".  That's probably an understatement.  If you have seen any of her videos (and I'd highly recommend checking out her website where she lists many of them) you know that she is perhaps one of the most intense disciplinarians on the planet and spanks quite hard.  I fondly remember the first time I put her DWC video in our player and draped myself over Cora's lap.  Watching Ms. Specht spank really inspired Cora to keep up with her.  It was truly a breakthrough in Cora spanking me good and hard.

Ms. Specht has graciously shared some pictures of her spanking Ms. Sarah Gregory, who I'm sure you are familiar with, also.  I think the pictures speak for themselves as to the intensity of one of Ms. Specht's spankings.  Note especially Ms. Gregory's expression in the last two pictures.

Cora's New Spanking Chair

In our last post we mentioned that we had been feeling the heat.  Well, today we found out that July & August, 2014 were the hottest on record for Seattle.  Yes, we here in the Pacific Northwest are weenies when it comes to hot weather but Cora and I are both relieved that the weather is changing to its fall orientation.  Whew!

I had planned a post about Cora's new Spanking Chair several weeks ago.  In fact there are several things I'll be posting that have been swirling around in the notebook of my mind.

It was a post on April 8 that we described a new chair that we expected Cora would use for the purpose of spanking me.  We even described how she sat down in the chair in the store and took me over lap to determine if she would like the chair.  She did and we brought it home.  Its taller than a normal chair which we thought would make an OTK spanking a little more interesting.  The chair was featured in several posts subsequent to the April 8 post.

However, after getting used to the new chair, Cora and I both came to the conclusion that its just a bit too tall and a bit uncomfortable.  So off we went to the same store.  We found a really elegant teak wood chair that was not as tall.  Again, over Cora's lap I went and she really liked the position.  How we didn't get caught in that position (twice), I don't know.  However there was something titillating about the possibility of getting caught.  Sort of like having sex in a public place.  (You have tried that, haven't you?)
 Anyway, we took the chair home and Cora put it to use.  She really likes it, not only for a classic Over-The-Knee spanking and like the previous Spanking Chair, it has a gentle curve that accommodates Cora's own curves.  And it looks really nice in our living room.  Oh, and our first 'Spanking Chair' still holds a place of honor sitting just below Cora's rack and is certainly available for 'action' if needed.  I think Cora loves having the choice.

Cora's New Spanking Chair
Nice Curve, Don't You Think?


So I have been intending to get some pictures of Cora's new chair to share with you.  The summer 'drought' has delayed my intent but today Cora dressed in some rather tight light-colored jeans.  I think she looks just plain hot in them.  So when we got home from our shopping, I grabbed my camera and set up her new chair.  I've included just a few of them here.

Ready For Some Action

Turns out after the photos we were both 'inspired'.  So Cora sat down and over her lap I went. Totally spontaneous!  And presenting my bare bottom to Cora for her to spank, sparked my submissive, erotic feelings.  I knew that soon, my upturned bottom would experience spontaneous combustion from Cora's Ebony Hairbrush and the heat of the summer would be replaced by the heat in my soon-to-be-spanked hindquarters.
Cora's Lap, Her Chair and Her Ebony Hairbrush

The spanking only lasted a minute or so but it was great to get back into the saddle.  So to speak!  As I am composing this post I'm still feeling the sting.  Its a nice reminder that I have just been spanked, something I have missed.  I'm guessing there will be much more to come.
"Over My Lap, NOW!"

And Ms. O, you needn't worry about me getting regular discipline sessions but we do appreciate your suggestions and hope you will continue to add your wise comments.  Cora has promised that they will resume.  Perhaps not as intense as the ones you deliver but I know she will keep me reminded of my place.

Certificate of Authority

Yes, its been a while since our last post (July 20 to be specific).  No excuses but its been unusually hot here during August and I think the heat drained the libido of both Cora and myself.  Yesterday was the first real rain and it looks like the summer inferno may have burned itself out.  It may be time for an inferno of a different kind to be lit, preferable by my lovely Ms. Cora!

In our last post, I mentioned that 'I'd let you know' what happened after my little stunt at the parade staging area.  I'll address the results further down in this post.

Like many of you, I am a member of 'FetLife'.  Its a fun forum and I have posted a number of pictures in my profile.  One of the pictures shows 'Cora's Rack' and includes the 'Certificate of Authority' which is displayed just above her rack.  I received an inquiry asking what it read and if he could get a closer look.  So I posted a copy of our 'Certificate of Authority'.
Certificate of Authority
Ours is filled in with our names and date.

Amazingly, I got lots and lots of responses.  Lots!  And a flurry of requests for both the Certificate and our (apparently famous) Notice of Discipline.  Two of the responses came from two women who identified themselves as 'Domme'.  The gist of their comments was that they did not need 'Permission' to spank but rather would just issue a 'Bend Over, Now!' command and spank away.

I must admit that there is a large element of 'Topping from the Bottom' included in our Certificate of Authority.  Large, indeed.  In addition, Ms. O, who often comments here, pointed out my own bratty behavior when I issued my Request for Discipline at the staging area of our parade, which pointed out I was wearing her panties.  Ms. O really took me to the woodshed with her comments including that Lady Cora should really tan my arse.  Check out her comments if you want to read further.

I have to agree; Ms. O was certainly correct.  I was topping from the bottom.  However its a dynamic that works for us and Lady Cora doesn't find it offensive or inappropriate.  Its one of those things that happens to get things started for us.  Sometimes I need to set the spark to light Lady Cora's fire.  Another example is when I purchased and printed the books from Ms. Francy.  Handing Lady Cora those books was certainly an act of topping from the bottom but the results speak for themselves as I've described in quite a few previous posts.

I think the important thing is to identify what works for a specific relationship.  The two women who commented on FetLife certainly are 'Take Charge' women and need no permission to discipline the naughty men in their life.  Indeed those naughty men are fortunate to know these two women and I'm guessing he is one happy guy.

But I am one happy guy too.  Even if it means I need to 'inspire' Cora to get things started.  Oh and below are the results of the spanking I got from her as a result of wearing her panties over a month ago.  The spanking took place the day after and I must say she really can redden my bottom now.  Compared to previous spankings, I think you will find me with a much deeper shade of red.
Spanked by Lady Cora!

Parade Day - and a RFD

Yesterday was our local summer festival parade.  Cora and I belong to a club (not related to the FLR thing we do) and we represent the club in the parade.  We have a 21 year old Corvette and we place banners for the club on the doors and Cora rides in the back dancing to summertime music we blast from the sound system mounted on the luggage rack.  This year we had a full marching band behind us but based on comments from those in the audience there was no trouble for them hearing our music.  All in all its one of the highlights for us in the summer and its great fun.
Cora in last year's parade Rockin' out to the music
I think I have mentioned my fascination with women's panties, and Cora's in particular.  Its something that many of us naughty males seem to have in common.  Well, yesterday I thought I'd have a little fun with Cora and wore a pair of her panties while in the parade.
Prior to leaving the house I filled out a 'Request for Discipline' form.  I think its self-explanatory. Once we reached the staging area for the parade and I did one last round of polishing the car, the chaos finally subsided. I then reached into the glove box and pulled out the notice I had earlier filled out and handed it to Cora.

So far I haven't been held accountable as Cora is still recovering from her dancing marathon.  But I'm guessing she will be beckoning me to her lap, soon.  Oh, and its also my day for a maintenance spanking.  I'll let you know.

A Magickal Afternoon at Salty's

Cora and I represent a local club (not related to our FLR thing) in our local summer festival parade.  This year the parade will occur on July 19 and we have been getting preparations in order for a week now.  For example I took our car into the shop for annual service to make sure its running fine.

And yesterday Cora wanted to make a trial run of what she plans to wear.  Just to make sure everything fits and to make whatever adjustments are necessary.  For this year's parade she purchased a dress that nicely matches the color of our car.  Color coordinated she will be including her 4 inch high heels that match the car.

So we decided to make a 'trial run' to our favorite local restaurant for lunch.  Cora got all dressed up in everything she plans to wear during the parade and I would be able to make sure our 'Fuel Injected Stingray' would be ready to perform.

Wonder if She'll Pull Out One of Her Notices?

Cora and I have been visiting Salty's for many years including the evening of our wedding, and have never had a bad experience.  Indeed the staff are very friendly and the interaction is great fun.
Seattle's Best View
Yesterday was no exception.  Our server was a woman who attended to our initial needs in the usual efficient and professional manner and soon Cora had her Gin and 7-UP.  We then dived into their summer menu (Salmon was featured!) to make our lunch selection.  As the afternoon progressed, we got to know our server a bit better and shared our story of why we were having lunch as a way to test out Cora's outfit and to make sure the car was running fine.  The conversations progressed and we discussed our holiday light display.  She seemed quite engaged and more that what you might expect from someone attending to us.  There obviously was something that just seemed to click between us.
Cora Getting Ready to Order Lunch
I think it may have been when we talked about having dinner at Salty's after our wedding that we began to share how we have adopted a Female Led Relationship lifestyle.  Both Cora and I could tell that she was more than just interested.  All the while maintaining her professional demeanor, she began asking questions and we finally shared the full story of our wedding including the ceremonial pass of the hairbrush (the symbol of a woman's power, as we explained) from the minister to Cora followed by my first spanking as her husband.  One thing she confessed was that this approach might be a way to 'spice up' the relationship with her husband.
Cora's 'Business' Card
We ended up giving her one of Cora's business cards.  These depict a picture of Cora beckoning me to her side in preparation for the first spanking of our marriage.  The URL of this blog appears on the card and we thought these cards would be great to pass out to people that we felt might be interested in what we do.  So far we haven't passed out very many but this seemed like a perfect opportunity to share one with our hostess.  And to top things off, Cora pulled out of of her (famous) Notice of Discipline forms and gave it to her, too.  Smiling, she indicated that upon return to her home she would be opening up her computer to check out our blog.  And the last conversation we had with her was that we felt a story had developed that we would like to share on our blog.  She consented to sharing our story without hesitation.

One thing that Cora and I have attempted to do is to share what we believe are the benefits of a Female Led Relationship.  We have no intent to 'force' it on anyone and we totally understand that its not for everyone.  So we have opened up our blog and have met many of you in the 'virtual' world of the Internet but have sadly not met many people face to face.  But today was a time that it just seemed right to share and who knows, perhaps a relationship might just develop.  I can just see Cora 'training' her in the implementation of a Female Led Relationship which could introduce some very interesting energy into their relationship.

Yesterday was Wednesday

... and was the designated day for my 'Maintenance Spanking'.  We found that Wednesday just didn't work very well as our routine during weekdays seemed to interfere with me getting spanked.  So we sat down and discussed this and other things.  The result was to change the designated day to Sunday.

Way back in February, 2009 Cora and I drew up a 'contract'.  Our contract was rather simple and was modified from one of Dorothy Spencer's 'Spanking Plans'.  Ms. Spencer was certainly ahead of her time when she advocated spanking as a way to settle disputes between couples in the early 1930's.  There is lots and lots of information available on the net regarding this plan including the actual text of the plan which advocates spankings to both the wife and husband.  Ours is a modification that only addresses Cora spanking me.

We we opened up our discussion I thought that perhaps a revisit to our contract would be in order.  However, due to its simplicity I thought that just amending it would be all that was needed.  Cora agreed and we ended up with three amendments.  The first one spelled out some definitions of our 'Notice of Discipline' form and how it should be applied.  I'll share the text of that part in a future post.  The second amendment applied to our weekly Maintenance Spanking.  Here is the text of that amendment:

Amendment II.  Maintenance Spankings

It is agreed that weekly spankings would solidify the respective rolls of the Disciplinarian Wife and the Disciplined Husband.  These spankings will be referred to as Maintenance Spankings.

A. Maintenance Spankings should be carried out each week on a designated day (Sunday).  They should not be postponed unless there are above normal circumstances that prevent them from happening.  When such delay occurs they should be re-scheduled as soon as possible.

B. Maintenance Spankings will be administered as Over-The-Knee (OTK) spankings with the appropriate OTK implement such as the Ebony Hairbrush, OTK Spanking Paddle or any other implement that is suitable for the OTK position.

C. For instances where the Disciplined Husband's behavior has been less than acceptable, the OTK spanking will be followed by a session with the Disciplinarian Wife's paddle.  The Disciplined Husband will assume a bent over position as directed by the Disciplinarian Wife who will choose one or more implements suitable for the administering of a good, hard paddling.

D. The OTK portion of the Maintenance Spanking shall be no less than five minutes but she is encouraged to administer her Hairbrush or other implement(s) as long as she sees fit.

E. For instances where the OTK spanking is to be followed by a paddling session, the number of swats shall be no less than six.  However, the Disciplinarian Wife is encouraged to administer as many swats as she may deem necessary.


Please note that the above is just something that Cora and I worked out and may or not apply to anyone else.  However we did want to share the specifics of what we came up with.

As was mentioned in an earlier post, I was paddled Saturday morning and paddled rather hard.  So I was a little surprised that on Sunday, Cora beckoned me to come to her for my weekly Maintenance Spanking.  I was still feeling the impact of my Saturday morning paddling but who was I to question her authority???
Like it or not you're getting a Spanking!
This time Cora decided that she would utilize our couch for my spanking.  She wanted both of us to be comfortable(!)  So, over her lap I went.
Her Lap Awaits
I might mention that Cora now has no less than three (3) Ebony Hairbrushes.  The first one I purchased for her has a slight concave surface and really can deliver a stingy smack and does so with a rather pronounced cracking sound.  The second one has a convex surface and is quite thuddy and does not impact with much of a sound.  The third Ebony Hairbrush also has a concave surface and is very similar to the first one I purchased for her but has slightly different dimensions and is a full ounce heavier.  So, Cora wanted to compare number one and number three.
Get Ready!
Lining up the two Ebony beauties, Cora began her comparison.  (Note that the attached photos are from our archives and the hairbrushes pictured are not the Ebonies.  We hope to photograph them soon.)  I felt the familiar impact of her Ebony Hairbrushes and she did not start with a warm up.  I think she wanted to get down to the business of her comparison.

Naturally, I was feeling the sting of the impact on my recently paddled bottom.  But in the interest of science I hung in there enduring Cora's spanking.  She switched back and forth and I could tell slight differences but the sound of their impact was almost identical.  Soon I was feeling like a well spanked, naughty boy.
Getting Spanked with Cora's Ebony Hairbrush
Cora continued.  Now, remember that we are in the post Ms. Francy period and Cora no longer modulates her spankings.  In fact at one point she mentioned that she was drawing a little blood.  Yes, I was getting a real blistering spanking.  But unlike previous times, Cora did not let the appearance of a blister deter her from continuing.
The Result of a Spanking from Cora is Much Different Now!
On she went until I think she was exhausted.  She checked the clock and much to the surprise of both of us a full thirteen minutes had elapsed since she began.  As I write this (four days later), I can still feel a dull pain in my bottom and there are still marks.  So finally, I feel like I have received a good, hard spanking that I have felt I not only deserved but needed.  And Cora was delighted at the result and has been literally glowing (in her own way!) ever since.  And she has hinted that I need another spanking today.  Why?  Because she feels like it.

I Got Paddled This Morning

We men can be such naughty boys.  I know from some of the things I have seen on other sites and e-Mails I get from some of you, that we do have lots in common.  Like the things we do when surfing the web.

Well, I got 'caught' this morning.  'Red-Handed', so to speak.  There was no hiding it when Cora took things in hand.  So to speak!

Now, Cora is really OK with those kinds of my activity.  Really.  However, I have asked her to administer an immediate paddling when she does 'catch' me.  Its partly role-play and partly serious.
Cora's Spencer Paddle
So I offered my naughty backside to her by bending over one of our kitchen chairs after placing her Spencer paddle in a handy place for her to pick it up.  At the time I was wearing a thick robe and I pulled up the bottom part over my back which presented my bare bottom for Cora to attend to.
Me Getting Previously Paddled with Cora's Spencer
She Paddles Harder Now.  Much Harder!
And Attend to it, she did.  Since Cora read Ms. Francy's books ('Spanking the Male Mind' and 'How to Spank Your Man', both of which we highly recommend) Cora has been spanking me much harder. And this morning was no exception.  She really laid into me with that Spencer Paddle.  She was swinging it hard enough that I could hear the whistle the paddle makes just before landing on my naughty bottom.  And I heard lots and lots of those whistles as she paddled me much longer that I expected.
Cora Has Lots of Choices When She Decides to Paddle
When she finally stopped with her Spencer Paddle, I remained in place, expecting her to give me the OK to get up.  She didn't.  Instead she placed the Spencer Paddle back on the rack and then grabbed her PurpleHeart Paddle.  Its been a while since she paddled me with her PurpleHeart Paddle but again, she laid into me with quite a bit of vigor.  The PurpleHeart Paddle is a little heavier than the Spencer Paddle and it was delivering quite a combination of 'thud' and 'sting'.  I was definitely getting a naughty boy paddling.  Again, Cora delivered a much longer paddling than I expected.
The PurpleHeart is one of Cora's Favorites
Can You Tell?
And again, when she finally stopped with her PurpleHeart Paddle and put it back on the rack, I remained in place expecting her to release me right away.  But NO!  Cora had other ideas.  Instead she reached for the biggest paddle on the rack: the OAR!
Bend Over This Chair
I'm Going to Paddle You with This!
A post on April 21, 2011 describes how we acquired this huge paddle.  We were shopping at one of the local craft stores and Cora noticed it displayed with other unfinished wood items.  It was a rather interesting shopping experience, especially when Cora made me bend over so that she could try it out.  I had been directed to the area of the store where we found the paddle by one of the clerks in the store who had asked if I need help finding something.  I was looking for shellac and she thought in might be near where the unfinished wood items were displayed.  As we were leaving the unfinished wood display, we encountered the same woman who had suggested I look for shellac where the wood items were located.  "Did you find what you were looking for?", she asked.  Cora immediately spoke up and said, "Well no, but I did find this".  Cora then reached into our basket and pulled out the large paddle then said,  "I think I can make good use of it!".  Cora then complemented her on the stores inventory indicating that, "you have lots of useful items in this store".  The employee blushed noticeably but had a knowing grin, too.

So with her big, huge paddle in hand, Cora continued my punishment.  Again, I got paddled much longer than I expected.  The result being a bright red bottom that still seems to be emitting quite a glow.  I am certainly feeling the effects as I am writing this.  And I know Cora really enjoyed punishing me for being the 'naughty' boy that I was.  And partly thanks to Ms. Francy, what I got was a good, hard and long paddling.
