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 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'.

Maintenance Spankings

It took a while to recover from our Holiday season.  We put lots and lots of focus and energy into our light display.  Lots.  However the results were really satisfying and the interaction with people who stopped by was incredible.

So we also back-burnered our spanking activities.  It was just what we did (or didn't do).  So it took some effort to re-start things. 
About a month ago Cora and I sat down and discussed what we both wanted to do to restart things and the conclusion was to initiate weekly maintenance spankings.  Cora had forgotten how much better she felt after spanking me and I was missing the erotic experience of being directed over her lap to be given an application of her small OTK paddle or hairbrush.
As has been described earlier I searched and found not just one but two beautiful Ebony Hairbrushes.  And Cora found that she just LOVED using them on my naughty bottom.  So we decided that Wednesday would be the 'Day of Discipline'.  So far we have kept to our schedule fairly well missing only one Wednesday.  In addition, spontaneous spankings have occurred either as the result of my poor behavior or sometimes 'just because we wanted to'.

Prior to our decision to implement weekly maintenance spankings, I discovered two books authored by a delightful woman, Ms. Francy.  The first book in the series is, 'Spanking the Male Mind' which is followed by 'How to Spank Your Man'.  I highly recommend both and will described more about those two books in a subsequent post. 

So I convinced Cora to read these two books.  Since they are e-Books it was necessary to print them out.  Both Cora and I are old-fashioned in that we like books we can hold in our hands and often read them while relaxing in our bed.  Ms. Francy's writing was very insightful and it was like she was looking deep into the dark corners of my mind.  Her writings were describing me to myself better than I have even been able to accomplish in the past.  I told Cora as much and that she should consider that most of what she read applies to me.

The books are aimed at the female part of the FLR relationship and explains why a woman should not only spank her man but that there are many benefits for her.  She goes to great lengths to explain that its not unusual or 'evil' but natural and a gift of love.  Among the benefits Ms. Francy highlights are, 'Emotionally Healing', 'Fulfilling', 'Fun and Imaginative' and 'Sexy and Stimulating as all Get Out!' 
She also addresses why a woman should spank her man good and hard.  I think that most women who consent to spank their men are afraid of  'hurting them'.  Ms. Francy does an awesome job of explaining why a woman should 'err on the too hard side', and explains that 'Guys like to WITHSTAND things'.  (Ms. Francy's emphasis).  She further explains how men have a need to prove themselves.  As an example, she described a group of her co-workers, 'virile men in their 20's' as having a hot-dog eating contest resulting in 'the privilege of vomiting up everything they cram into their mouths' as a way to prove themselves.

Yes, we are like that.  At least I know I am and from what I have read from other men in spanking relationships with their wives and girlfriends, I am sure I am not alone.  And when I am being spanked I now know why I need to be spanked hard.  Very hard.  And Cora now knows why. 

In the past Cora would modulate the intensity of her spanks based upon my reaction.  If I ooo'd and aaawwwed and said ouch lots, she would back off.  Sometimes she would back off just a little but I could tell she was reducing the intensitity of the way she was spanking me.  I tried to tell her to not let up, but it was only after reading Ms. Francy's books that finally convinced her not to back off.  I also now know myself better and why I want to Cora to administer a 'good hard spanking' when the time comes for discipline.  I am now a much happier man even though its much more difficult to sit comfortably.

There is another tool that I have found that helps Cora 'get into the mood'.  We recently upgraded the TV that we watch in our main living area.  Its one of those 'Smart TV's' and even does 3-D (you should see the movie 'Hugo' in 3-D).  One of the features of this TV is that I can plug a memory stick into a USB socket and the TV will display what's on it.  This includes pictures and movies.  So I loaded a memory stick with pictures of women spanking men, Cora spanking me and videos of women spanking men, mostly in the OTK position and many with ebony hairbrushes.

Just last Saturday after a nice afternoon nap, I set up the videos to play on our TV and waited for Cora to finish dressing and to come join me in our living room.  When I heard her come down the stairs I started the video.  'What's This?' she asked as she sat down next to me.  I just ignored her question and watched her reaction.  I have always know that I am a 'visual' being and love images of things that touch my erotic side and arouse me.  I think that most men are known for that aspect of themselves but it has been my experience that women are affected less by visual stimulation.  I am beginning to realize that may not be the case.  At least with Cora, the visual stimulation works.  And works very well.

After a couple of videos (about 3 or 4 minutes long each), I mentioned to her that she mentioned earlier in the day that I would 'pay' for one of my actions and wondered if she was ready to collect.  I found myself immediately placed over her lap on our couch, my bottom bared and ready to accept the consequences of my mis-behavior (minor as it was).  Cora didn't even start with a hand-spanking warm-up but started with her favorite Ebony Hairbrush.  Of course it hurt but I now know why I like it so much.  She proceeded to spank me 'good and hard' and sometimes traded off her Ebony instrument of Ass Destruction with her OTK spanking paddle.  Its fun to feel the difference but the result is that I ended up with a well spanked bottom.  As I am writing this, a day later, I am still feeling a 'tingle'.  Its fantastic.
So, for you men who read this and have been having difficulty getting our Lady to blister your bottom to your desires, I'd highly suggest that you check out Ms. Francy's books.  With the demise of the Disciplinary Wives's Club they provide a great alternative.  In fact I think that in many ways they may actually be better.
