The Ubiquitous Hairbrush

In my opinion there is nothing that symbolizes Female Authority better that a wooden hairbrush.  In the time honored tradition, most households included a hairbrush on M'Ladies' dresser.  Thus it was only natural for her to reach for it when she found it necessary to maintain discipline in her household. 

I was lucky enough to have purchased one of these items when Nu-West/Leda was selling them (about 20 years ago, or so).  It seems to be one of the best hairbrushes I have seen and certainly leaves quite an impact when Cora uses it on me.  There was a time that I really hated being spanked with it, then one day Cora had me over her lap and the combination of her strokes and the sound it was making seemed to hit home (pun intended).  Not only was I feeling well spanked (very well spanked!), but also aroused (very aroused).  Since then I can't seem to get enough of her hairbrush.  Fortunately, she likes to use it, too (more on that later).

At one time it seemed that the traditional flat-backed, wooden hairbrush were becoming extinct.  However, I have found that they may be on a comeback.  I have found quite a few examples recently in our local pharmacy. Now, these aren't the plastic brushes or those wooden brushes with some kind of plastic inlay to hold the brushes (and loose much of their weight), but real wood with all the weight that results in solid impact on a naughty bottom.  And I have made a point of obtaining several examples (for scientific purposes, of course!).  I also found them to be very affordable (often less than $10.00).

A while back I saw a particularly large example and I guess its really a 'bath brush'.  Its something that Cora had not used very much.  I think she likes to stick with tools with which she is familiar.  Sort of a comfort level.

Well, a couple of days ago, I decided to take some pix of our hairbrush collection and set them up on the bed.  Included in the line-up was the large brush.  Cora decided that she wasn't going to let the opportunity pass her by and after I had all the pictures I needed, she issued the instruction, "Over my Lap!"

Of course, I complied.  After there is nothing better than a spontaneous spanking from Cora.  There was no particular reason to get spanked other that 'she wanted to'.  Again one of my favorite scenarios as it comes under the heading of a 'fun spanking'.  Fun for both of us!

I expected that she would pick up the Nu-West/Leda hairbrush.  Instead, much to my surprise, she reached for the longer 'bath brush' and started to spank me.  I could tell that this was different as it was quite intense.  Cora told me she really liked this brush and would probably start using it more often.  She related, "its more spank with less effort on my part".  Needless to say, when she was done my bottom was very red and stinging.  I certainly felt an afterglow for the rest of the day.

So now Cora's 'Bedroom Rack includes a new member.  And I expect it won't get lonely.  In fact we actually have a pair of these 'weapons of ass destruction'.  I guess you never know when another Lady may show up and need one, too.

As I am finishing up this post, I shared with Cora just how aroused I was revisiting that spanking.  "Well, then maybe I should give you a refresher".  She then grabbed my arm and led me to the table where she bent me over and bared my  bottom.  She then utilized about half her 'Rack' and again left me with a red, stingy bottom.  And as I finish this post, I certainly am enjoying the afterglow.

Oh, how I love being under her spell!

i too am a fan of the spontaneous "I don't need a reason to spank you" spanking...and too...i feel an emotional, (as well as physical!) connection to the hairbrush being rigorously applied to my bottom by my Wife...no matter the reason for the trip over Her lap...i always end up grateful to Her for it...

That's weird, I've litteraly just posted my own blog about being beaten with the bath brush and then I find yours.

The bath brush definitely does have an intenstity, as you say Ken!

The spontaneous thing kind of brings one to one's senses rather abruptly. There's no chance to prepare your mind, is there? One minute it's a normal day, the next there's this intense stinging sensation.

I agree with Weave - that rack of tools on the way does have a certain poignancy.

And I love that hairbrush - but the image of Cora brandishing it is even better. Thanks for sharing it with us Ken....

You've convinced me that I really should add a hairbrush or two to my "arsenal" of implements. Especially that bath brush! Thanks so much!

My last post also included the use of a hairbrush, and bath brush.My wife believes in using them to their fullest. I think they always leave us wanting more.
You and Cora have a really special relationship, I think it's great.
And I love spontaneous spankings, but I also like knowing what's coming and having to think about it for a while.

Ken, as a fellow hairbrush fan I really enjoyed your post.

As you say, it's the ultimate female implement - you couldn't ask for a more potent symbol combining femininity and authority - and it's something that can sit quite innocently in a 'vanilla' environment, although having completely fetishised them I find it impossible to look at one that way.

Having said all that, I think I came quite late to the revelation that brushes were used for spanking. I still remember first thinking, 'but which side do you use'? :) Obviously if you were to use the 'wrong' side then the result could be very much more or very much less severe, depending on the type of bristles!

By the way, I love Cora's expression in that last shot. RAAAWWRRR!!!

Great post about, besides the hand, my favorite, the brush. Yes sir, I agree to me it speaks of female authority, more than anything else. Growing up I was spanked by mom, my two aunts, a neighbor and yes the nuns all with a hairbrush! In fact I still have mom's tucked away but the brush was always the implement of choice. Many mom's also carried a smaller version in their pocket books.

I always dreaded seeing her brush or the other ladies brushes on the dresser but soon it became a turn on!

Spontaneous for us is still hard unless we are away but when it happens, wow!!

Great post from two lovely people and friends.

Not sure but I think I maybe getting the brush later today, well I hope so.

Much love to you and the beautiful Cora!

Great post! I will be adding a good wooden hairbrush to B's collection in a few months. The bathbrush works very well already as you describe!

I love the photo of Cora swatting you with the purpleheart paddle, for a couple of reasons. One, she's looking at the camera - sort of a "Look, Ma - no hands!" kind of moment. Second, if the reader looks closely, they'll see that you're up on your toes. As you should be, IMHO, after a good swat!

Be well my friend!

Intensity indeed...Yes, Underling and Respecting Mistress - a bathbrush does have an intensity on two sides, often just like my excuses! Like you I now realize and respect that fact all too well. Oh, the bristle side.... the bathbrush strikes fear in my heart as I know just how it feels being used in all its many ways, bristle and back. My butt takes a few days to recover not just from the backside of the bathbrush in the spanking but from the soapy scrubbing application of its bristles to get me spanking clean deep down in those dark cracks before the spanking even begins. It sure gets that tender skin all squeaky clean and the circulation going. Pink does not do the resulting color justice, and the itch lasts for as long as the color. I always need to be restrained to keep from squirming in the bathtub when that bathbrush appears! Along with a big bar of Ivory soap. I've even had my mouth scrubbed with it if I get too mouthy during a spanking - a mouthful of Ivory suds if I'm not careful. One minute can be so different from those that follow a two-sided application of the bathbrush. Spanking clean
