Cora the FLR Ambassador

First Cora and I wish all of you the happiest of Holidays.  Today is the Winter Solstice otherwise know as Yule and we are looking forward to seeing the return of the Sun.  No doubt (since Cora is a huge Beatles's fan) we will be listening to George Harrison's, 'Here Comes the Sun' and celebrating the day.

This is the season for many people to gather together to celebrate various Holiday related things.  So it was no surprise that we were invited to a gathering of friends a couple of nights ago.  This gathering had noting to do with Female Led Relationships (FLR) but was a group of technically related people. 

Many of the men in the group gravitated together to 'talk tech' leaving some of the women to gather in a corner of the room on a rather comfortable looking couch.  Cora later related that the conversation drifted towards speaking of the men in their life.
Cora the 'FLR Ambassador'

As happens at many of these 'parties', alcohol is served.  This gathering was no exception and while I kept my consumption at a minimum as I was the 'designated driver', the Ladies apparently were indulging.  So I am guessing they had less inhibitions than normal.

Somehow the subject of one of the husband's misbehavior came up.  Naturally, Cora mentioned that she had the solution: her 'WAD's'.  "Uh, what's a WAD?", asked one of the women.  "Why, that's my 'Weapon of Ass Destruction", she replied.  "You actually use those?", another one asked.  "Of course, and the results are magnificent", she replied.

As our involvement in this group involved previous activities that were hosted at our home, some of the women involved in the discussion had actually seen 'Cora's Rack'.  Mostly they ignored it probably not wanting to really know about it at those times.  However, with an all female group plus a little loosening up from the beverages, the discussion got a little deeper.  Questions were asked and Cora was able to respond, with 'first hand' experiences. 

Later, Cora shared with me that all the women were fascinated by the concept and none found it offensive.  I think many of them saw the benefits.

So we will probably never know how many of these women take up the spanking of their husbands but at least they were given the opportunity of thinking about it.  I know that many couples keep their FLR a deeply guarded secret but we tend to wear our FLR proudly 'on our sleeves'.  Why not bring it out into the open and share our lifestyles with those that might be interested?

For me, I wouldn't change a thing and my love of Cora keeps increasing every day, especially when she performs as an Ambassador for our FLR 'cause'.

The Physics of Paddling

Saturday night I thought I'd dig into our 'achives' and pull our some of my old VHS tapes.  Over the years I have acquired a collection of Female-Spanks-Male video tapes.  They are stored deeply buried in a closet and it takes no small bit of effort to retrieve them.  But I felt curious about a couple of the tapes I have and so dug them out. 

We don't use our VHS player much at all and it is always a re-invention of how I have it set up.  Sometimes I have to look at the back of our receiver to figure out what goes where and what button to push.  But I finally was able to get things to display and the sound to come out where its supposed to.

Cora entered the room and was pleased to see that I had things set up.  She does enjoy watching my F/M spanking related videos and it often results in great discussion and sometimes inspiring her to duplicate the 'action'.
I have quite a few of the Nu-West/Leda tapes. In that era, especially they were the best and we still enjoy them. One of these tapes, "The Ohio Wife" (FD-250) featured a woman who paddled her 'naughty' husband rather intensely. This tape was not one of the usual Nu-West/Leda features that were taped in their studios but instead appeared to be an 'amateur' tape that was submitted and subsequently distributed by Nu-West/Leda. Keeping in mind that technology has made major impacts over the 12 years or so since this tape was made, the picture and sound quality was actually pretty good.

It was obvious that they had acquired quite a number of the implements sold by Nu-West/Leda in those years including the small Spencer Paddle, the full-sized Spencer Paddle,  another paddle the same sized as the larger Spencer but without the holes. 

There were a number of scenes including an Over-the-Knee where she used her small Spencer and thoroughly spanked him.  I must say that she paddles rather hard and, now that I have re-produced the small Spencer, know how he must have been feeling that paddling.  Other scenes showed her using a number of other paddles including the larger Spencer and its hole-less twin.  Again, I know what if feels like to be on the receiving end of the Spencer and could sympathize with him as she turned his bottom a bright shade of red.

Cora and I both notice that she was paddling him a little high up on his bottom.  She would have him bend forward a little more with the result that the paddle then connected with the lower part of the buttocks better - you know, the 'Sweet Spot'.  However, as she was paddling rather intensely, he kept moving up with the paddle hitting higher again.  Ouch!

Our last post referred to the 'Library of Spanking Fiction' and I have been reading lots of the stories there.  In one of those stories it was mentioned that one of the ladies would flick her wrist toward the end of her stroke to produce an 'upswing' motion.  The result was that the trajectory of her paddle would be upwards and strike on the full part of the bottom.  I must say that that description got my attention and even made me a little 'excited'.

So, I came up with the idea of standing on a small step stool during a paddling from Cora.  We have one of those little folding stools in our kitchen.  Its only 11 inches wide, 9 inched deep and 9 inches high.  I grabbed it, set it up in front of our table (where Cora administers most of her paddlings) and asked Cora to try out her Spencer Paddle with me in this position. 
Wow, what a difference.  I could definitely feel that her paddle was landing in a much better way and was feeling the full effect on that sweet spot.  Now don't get me wrong, I knew that I had just received a hard swat from Cora's paddle.  Cora also mention how much more comfortable this was for her.  She didn't need to crouch down to get the paddle to land where she wanted it to land.  I can only imagine how much better it will be for her when she spanks me wearing heels.  It looks like I have a new project for my shop.

Holes vs No Holes
Often you see someone discuss the difference between a paddle with holes and a paddle with no holes.  The 'theory' is that the holes let the air pass allowing the paddle to land with an increase in velocity.  I personally think this is mostly a myth.  However, there is something about a paddle with holes that increases the intimidation factor.  If nothing else, the intent is to produce a paddle that will leave a much greater impact.  So when I see Cora holding her Spencer Paddle, I see a woman who is intending to give me a good, hard paddling and I react accordingly.

Back to the video, 'The Ohio Wife'.  Later scenes show her using various paddles.  The first of these is the Spencer without the holes.  Subsequent scenes depict her with the traditional Spencer with the holes.  Cora and I both noticed the difference in sound before we were able to determine that she was using a different paddle.  The video quality sort of hid the fact that there were holes in that paddle until a few minutes into the scene.  But we both noticed it.

One of the things about the Spencer Paddle is the sound it produces.  When delivered with enough force the holes in the Spencer Paddle produce a 'whooshing' sound.  Its almost a whistle.  Being on the receiving end of one of these paddlings is interest in that you hear the paddle heading for your bottom then feel its impact.  We don't have a Spencer paddle without holes so it was very interesting to hear the difference in the two paddles in the video.
Energy Equals Mass Times Velocity Squared

Going back to the 'theory' that a paddle with holes produces a harder paddling than one without holes brings up another story from the Library of Spanking Fiction.  One of the stories depicts a young female Physics teacher who finds the need to paddle one of her students.  She decides to demonstrate the difference in energy from a paddle that lands on the naughty backside at a higher speed as a result of less wind resistance due to the holes.  She puts the energy formula on her blackboard and notes that for a doubling of the mass (weight of the paddle), the energy would double.  However, if the velocity is doubled, the energy of the impact increases four times.  In the story, the pretty physics teacher demonstrates by using the 'standard' paddle issued by her school against her own personal paddle with holes.  Looking back, I sure wished that my physics teacher had been a young, pretty female and I would have loved to have been part of the 'experiment'. 
Anyone for a 'school room' paddling scenario to prove or disprove the theory?

Lady Cora's Lessons

I spend lots of time on the Internet.  Probably too much time.  Like most of you.  One of my favorite things to do is read the stories that appear on several sites which cater to those of us who have an interest in spanking.

One of the best story sites is 'The Library of Spanking Fiction'.  This site contains over 20,000 stories and over 11,000 members.  The stories are well written and easy to read and new stories appear every day.  The site is set up so that navigation to the types of stories that interest you, is very easy.  We have added the link to the Library of Spanking Fiction to our list of 'FLR and Other Related Resources'.  You must scroll down below the list of 'Blogs we Follow', but if you haven't seen this site, and like to read quality stories, we think you be delighted at the results.  Oh, and its Free!

There is also a 'Chat' function.  Now I have explored chat rooms on other sites but have found them rather boring and mostly oriented M/F.  However, last Saturday, I ventured into the chat room of the Library of Spanking Fiction.  Several of the authors of stories were on line and the conversation was delightful, intelligent, witty and just plain fun.  It seemed as if time was in suspension.

All kinds of subjects came up and one of the participants even asked me for the URL of our blog.  To make a long story short, another one of the participants asked me about our 'Notice of Discipline' form and I sent him a copy.  Turns out he was Thomas Bruns, one of the authors who has contributed about 40 items to the library.  Tom had checked out our blog and the very next morning had sent us a copy of a story that featured Cora and I.  Needless to say, Cora and I were very flattered.  Very!  Tom asked permission to use our real names which of course, was granted.  He also granted us permission to refer to him and his story.

Yesterday, Tom's story appeared on the Library site.  I won't repeat the story here but I am sure you will enjoy his fictional adventure with 'Lady Cora'.  The story is cleverly written and very plausible and features our 'Notice of Discipline' form (and our offer still applies; if you would like a copy, just send an e-Mail request to us).  Sadly, the library is unable to include pictures and graphics.  So here are a few pictures that go along with the story.  Perhaps you could have both our blog and his story opened in separate windows and read along with the pictures.

So here are a few pictures that go along with Tom's story.  The first picture picks up at about the seventh paragraph:
"I Assume You Have a Slip of Mine"
 "She Glanced Over It"

"I've Marked Just About Every Reason for Discipline on Here"
"She Walked Over to a Straight Backed Red Chair"
"Her Skirt Stretched Tight" 

"She Smoothed Her Skirt Back Over Her Legs"

"She Looked Me Directly in the Eyes"

"I Am Going to Hurt You"
"Why? Because I Can"

And, like those of us who write blogs, the authors on the library thrive on comments, too.

Cora's Rack

Yesterday, Red who hosts the 'Consensual Spanking' blog submitted a post titled, "RACKS!!!!!".  Naturally seeing this title under his blog entry in the list of blogs we follow caught my attention.  So I clicked on this entry and low and behold, the second and third pictures were of Cora's Racks.  The second picture depicted the rack in our bedroom and the third picture showed what our kitchen rack looks like.  However, these were old.  Quite old, like April of 2010 (it took me a while to locate the original pictures).

Now, Cora is quite proud of her Rack.  And she doesn't take offence when someone refers to her Rack.  Anyone who has kept up with us for a while knows that her main Rack is proudly hung in our kitchen and anyone who visits can't miss it.

So, here are some updated pictures of Cora's Rack I took only a few minutes ago.
And here is what hangs in the bedroom.

She also has a peg located close to where she sits in our living room.
And if that's not enough, here is a picture of her purse.  She never knows when she might need one of her WAD's (Weapons of Ass Destruction) when she is 'out and about'.

So if you ever had the misfortune of being sent to her, here is what you might see as she decides which one of her WAD's to use.
The Selection is Made!
Now Bend Over! This may sting a little!

Meeting New FLR Friends

Saturday morning I was delighted to find a e-Mail from the Female half of another couple who has found the benefits of a Female Led Relationship (FLR).  She entitled her message, "Love Your Blog".  Of course this got my attention.

I won't go into details of her message as like so many other couples, they wish to remain 'discreet' and of course, we honor that above all else.  I'll just say that they live in Ohio.  They appear to be open to meeting other couples into the 'Scene' but they are so far away that meeting is (sadly) not likely.  But she did indicate many things we have in common. 

One thing she shared was, "Spanking is a big part of our kink and is still used both in fun role playing settings and as real punishment. Yet, over the years, I started to feel more empowered and took more control including our sex life and even his release." 

Now, I don't carry on with other Women without sharing with Cora.  So when a second message popped up while I was on line and mentioned it to Cora, she immediately said, "I want to see it". 

So, while things may be on the quiet side, it appears that we have befriended yet another couple.  One of the things we have hoped to accomplish with our little blog is to meet other people who live a little like we do and to hopefully encourage other couples to feel comfortable with it.  I guess we can say 'Mission Accomplished' yet again.  Hurray for all of us.

A Preview of Things to Come

Here is Cora holding the latest creation from our wood shop.  More to come, later.

Love Our Lurkers - Two Days Late

Many of you have already celebrated 'Love Our Lurkers Day' which was organized by Bonnie (My Bottom Smarts blog).  I guess I am just a little behind, so I'm posting two days late.
I guess Cora will need to apply the appropriate discipline.

But then if you don't leave a comment, you may face her discipline, too.

Ed Lee of Nu-West/Leda Announces Retirement

One of the turning points in my interests in Dominant Women and my interests in being spanked by them was when I discovered Nu-West.  Originally, I found them in an advertisement in some magazine I had purchased but that advertisement really caught my attention.
So, I sent my $5.00 for their catalog.  When it came in the mail I knew that I have found something great.  Really great!  The catalog (I still have it) featured Photo Sets, Audio Cassettes, Super-8 Film, Hairbrushes, Canes, some Publications and Video Tape.  There isn't a date in the first catalog I have (#4) but the subsequent catalog shows a copyright date of 1983, so I am guessing my first catalog came out in about 1982. 

The material featured mostly women getting spanked by either men or women but there were a few items that featured men getting spanked by women.  I felt like I found the 'Mother Lode' (and this Mother spanked men, too)!

I can't understate my opinion of the revolution that Nu-West represented.  This was the first 'serious' production of material that featured 'real' people.  Prior to that what was available seemed to be more directed toward the 'Leather Crowd' or whip wielding Dungeon Queens.  Now, I have nothing against that kind of material (I have purchased my share over the years, especially in the 70's) but now there was something that really resonated with my own interests.

Some of the first things I purchased were a Super-8 film titled, 'Spanked Males', and copies of  'The Complete Guide To Home Discipline and Petticoat Punishment' and 'Issue No. One - Unpublished Photos of Nu-West'.  I still have all of these items and keep them stored safe in a trunk.

In 1986, a flyer was received announcing a brand new video tape, 'Beatings '86'.  This tape featured seven lovely ladies spanking men.  The back of the flyer indicated that 'Leda Productions' had produced it.  The back page featured a lady seated wearing a panty girdle, heels and holding a hairbrush (similar to the picture of Cora, here).

Naturally I purchased the tape.  It was awesome!  Guys getting spanked by women that looked like they could be your next door neighbor.  It ran an hour and I watched it many times.

The next year saw the first publication of 'Ma'am', a non-periodical magazine that featured high quality pictures and articles featuring women spanking men.  Again, the women depicted were 'real' women who happened to like spanking naughty men.  This was to be followed by seven more issues over the years.  My collection includes all except issue number 6.  (Anyone have a copy they would be willing to part with?)

Then in 1990, the first copy of the 'LedaGram' was published.  This was a monthly publication of the wonderful women from Leda (later know as 'Leda Ladies), along with articles and announcements of more videos.  There were some letters featured and much to my surprise, one of mine appeared.

In March of last year, Ed Lee, the creator of Nu-West/Leda allowed us to announce his latest publication, 'Leda Ladies, Book One'.  This was followed up by a post after receiving our copy in June.  I must say that it was truly an honor to be the first to announce this publication.  We experienced our all time record number of hits on the blog for those two posts.  By the way, its still available on Amazon.

Over the years I have been fortunate to have been able to purchase many of the items produced by Nu-West/Leda and will continue to treasure them all.  Cora will be continuing to set my bottom on fire by some of the Nu-West/Leda hairbrushes we have in our collection and our 'Spencer Paddle' is a favorite of both Cora and myself.  Oh to hear its whistle just before it impacts. 

So it came as a surprise to see Ed Lee announcing that he was going to retire effective November 1, 2012.  You can find more details at the Nu-West/Leda website.  Part of me feels saddened as a result of Ed's retirement and I know that many of our readers will also feel the same, but I know what my own retirement means to Cora and I.  So, Ed, if you are reading this, Cora and I wish you all the best in a long and satisfying retirement.  You earned it!

Fantasy Realized

I have known that I was attracted to the idea of being spanked by an authoritative woman since I was in grade school.  Over the years I have fantasized about many, many scenarios where I ended up getting a "Good, Hard Spanking".  Sadly, I missed my opportunity to experience a paddling from one of my female teachers in grade school, but it certainly remains as one of my favorite fantasies.

However, there are plenty others.  Lately, there has been some blog posts regarding getting 'caught' while viewing spanking related material on the Internet.  Ms. Julie covered this subject earlier this month and the current post from Underling's Humblings shows a very provocative picture of a woman catching her guy 'red handed'.

So, it should be no surprise that I spend time looking at these kinds of things on the Internet, too.  There certainly is a plethora of material and it seems that the volume of women-spanking-men pictures, stories and videos just keeps growing.  Some of it is quite good.

Many of the men who write about their Female Led Relationships indicated that they are forbidden to look at this stuff without permission.  Fortunately, Cora and I are quite open about viewing things on the net.  I am pretty much allowed to look at anything but often share some of the better things with Cora.  Included in the things I shared with her were the above posts from Ms. Julie and Underling.

As is usual, I rise earlier than Cora.  My usual process is to let our dogs outside, feed them and then catch up on my e-Mail.  Today was no exception.  However, I felt the need for a spanking from Cora.  An idea hatched.

In the past two days I have been engaged on making some more paddles in my shop.  I was fortunate in being able to secure a tracing of one of the small 'Spencer' paddles that Nu-West/Leda sold in the 1990's.  It appears in the same catalog of spanking implements that our favorite full sized Spencer paddle that I actually purchased (two, actually).  I have always regretted not purchasing one of the small ones, but now I have everything I need to replicate them.  I'll save the details for a later post.

So two days ago, I rough cut one of these paddles.  I drilled the holes in it and sanded it smooth enough that handling it would not result in a silver but it had yet to be given rounded edges, finish sanding and the application of shellac.

I brought it upstairs and handed it to Cora.  She immediately indicated that she liked it.  Alot!  So it should be no surprise that she wanted to take it for a 'test drive'.  Over her lap I went and I must say we both got carried away.  Cora seemed to get a thrill from paddling me with it and I found the feeling rather, well..... delicious!  She also tried it in the 'bend over the table' position and she even pulled out her full-sized Spencer paddle just to compare. 

Yesterday, I cut the rest of them out of the stock and proceeded with drilling all of them and rounding the edges.  One of them I smooth sanded.  It was complete except for the application of the finish.  Again, I shared it with Cora and she loved it even more.  She applied a quick 'test drive' but not nearly as long as the previous day.  More of a 'around the block' drive than a drive in the country.

My Fantasy

So back to this morning.  My plan was developing quite well.  I set up one of our red kitchen chairs so that it was available for Cora to sit down without moving things around.  I then set up one of our hairbrushes and the new small Spencer paddle in easy reach.  Every thing was ready.

Anticipating Being Put Over
Her Lap

Cora tends to rise about the same time every morning, so I set the final part of the plan.  I had 'stolen' one of her panties and had an erotic story on display on my laptop.  The laptop sits on our kitchen table and is only inches from where I had set up the kitchen chair in anticipation of Cora's arrival.  In addition to the story, I had a couple pictures of Cora displayed on the laptop too. (Hey, I find them rather erotic, too).

What Are You Doing!!!!????

Soon I heard Cora stirring and prepared myself.  "What are you doing?", she asked as she came down the stairway.  There wasn't really much of a reason to answer as it was quite obvious what I was doing.  She reviewed how things were set up.  She got the idea.  She grabbed my earlobe (Ms. Deirdre style) and pulled me the short distance to where the chair had been set up.  Soon I found myself over her lap.  She started with the hairbrush but soon switched to the new paddle.

On my, how that little paddle can set my bottom on fire.  Its wide enough (4 inches) to impact a rather large part of my bottom and after a number of swats I was feeling an intense sting and could tell my bottom's temperature was on the rise.  I am sure Cora was pleased with the shade of red she was producing with her paddling.

On an intellectual level, I have an interest with the results of our various spanking implements, especially since I have made many of them myself.  So I asked for lots of feedback from Cora from her 'test drives' of the previous days.  One thing I was wondering was how it worked on my 'sit-spot'.  She indicated that while over her lap on the couch, she didn't have much access to that part of my anatomy.  However, bent over the table, she could access it quite well, as my own experience confirmed.

OTK on the Couch

I was wondering how things would work while she was sitting on the kitchen chair with me bent over her lap. Turns out that she had plenty of access to my sit-spot and worked it over quite well.

Spanked on the Sit-Spot!

So, the result of our little session this morning was very satisfying to both of us.  Often Cora doesn't really wake up until after a coffee or two.  This morning, she had a rather nice injection of energy just after rising.  And I am sure that you can imagine my enjoyment of the session.  It was truly the fulfillment of one of my fantasies about getting 'caught' looking at spanking material on my computer.

Fantasy Fulfilled!

Real People

As has been said here before, we really thrive on the comments our readers leave.  This was especially true of the comments left on our last two post, including the extensive and sensitive comments left by Ms. Deirdre, Respecting Mistress and Alan.

Just this morning I found another comment that really touched us that was left by Dana Kane.  In part she said,
"Many of my playmates comment that they love your blog because the two of you are Real People. Thank you for being yourselves."
Real People!  Seeing those words really underlines one of the main reasons we write this blog.  We try to present ourselves as perhaps the couple next door who just happens to practice a Female Led Relationship lifestyle (and all the benefits to both of us it provides). 

So sometimes we have dinner at a local restaurant, attend staff meetings (well, maybe not anymore), take our girls for a walk along a local beach or preparing Cora for a 'I look like my dog' photo contest, we do lots of things that 'ordinary people do.  We just do it in the context of our FLR.

So thanks Ms. Dana.  Your comments really inspired us.  As do the comments from everyone.

A Stricter Cora? YES

Well, yesterday turned out to be something amazing.  Very amazing.

First I want to thank those of you who left comments regarding our previous post.  Its obvious that these came from the heart and I'll address some of them later.

As I outlined previously, our blog works as a part of our communication tools (but not the only communication tool).  Something I may not have shared is that before I publish a post, I have Cora read through it.  I don't post anything without her approval and this applies to the pictures, too.  After all most of you would probably agree that pictures of here are the best part of the blog.  But she has total editorial control of them.

So naturally I got Cora's attention between having her read Ms. Deirdre's posts and then my own.  Now, we approach life with a sense of humor and try to squeeze as much fun out of life as we can get away with.  Keep that in mind as I share yesterday's events with you.

Needless to say, I got spanked as a result of the yesterday's post.  But not just once.  Not just twice.  Not even three times.  I got spanked FOUR times and each and every one was good and hard.  Talk about 'be careful what you ask for!"  Of course I am not complaining.  On the contrary.  Indeed, I think it was between the second and third spanking that Cora said, "You sure have created a Monster."  I replied, "Dear, I don't think of that way.  Its more the Strict Cora has been released and is now coming out to play."

And play, she certainly did.  My first encounter with Cora's spanking inspiration came in our bedroom.  This was after publishing yesterday's post while we were preparing to go 'out and about'.  "Over the Bed!", she instructed.  "So you don't think I spank you enough!"  Naturally I complied and as I wasn't dressed yet, my bare bottom was at her disposal.  And dispose of it she did.

Cora pulled four of her favorite items from her 'Bedroom Rack', including her Ferule, small paddle, SMTR paddle and one of our Nu-West/Leda hairbrushes.  She went through each one and even used some of them more than once.

Its interesting that this spanking probably induced more pain into my bottom that the others.  Perhaps its because I haven't been spanked much lately.  However, I think that even though she set my bottom on fire, she did hold back a bit.  But, sitting in the driver's seat later certainly reminded me that I had been spanked.

Our first stop was a Pet Shop.  Cora had a coupon for dog food and it turned out it was on sale, too.  We decided to buy two bags but these are rather large and two required the use of a cart.  I fetched the cart and loaded up two bags.  Meanwhile, Cora was checking out the dog treat section and was bent over providing me with a rather delicious view of her Derriere.  Now, I happen to think that Cora's Derriere is one of her best 'assets', especially when she is wearing one of her girdles, and there are plenty of pix that have been posted here that prove my point. 

Well, the temptation was just too great.  I headed towards Cora with the cart with the intent of nudging the seat of her jeans just a little.  What I didn't realize is that the pile of dog food had hidden the bottom part of the cart from my view.  The result was that not only did the cart nudge her Derriere but the bottom part of the cart also came into contact with her ankle.  Naturally, Cora took great exception to my action and informed me that in no uncertain terms that she would "take care of me later".  I almost expected Cora to employ Ms. Deirdre's technique of ear pulling and spank me right there.

It turns out that my last check (yes, I still use old fashioned checks) was used to pay for the dog food.  That required a return home as I needed to write another one later.  Pulling up to our house, Cora rolled down her window in anticipation of me making a short trip into the house to get more checks.  I asked her to come inside with me.

After obtaining another book of checks, I pulled the Spencer Paddle from the rack in our kitchen area and handed it to Cora.  I think twenty-five should take care of it.  "I'll be the one who decides that" she replied.  Of course, who am I to dispute her decision.  So I bent over our table ready to 'pay' for my misbehaviour at the pet store. 

The Spencer Paddle has a characteristic whistle that you can hear just before it impacts its target.  That is if its swung hard enough.  Well I heard the whistle, then 'WHAM'.  I could tell that Cora was definitely stepping up to her new, stricter persona.  And even though I was not bare bottomed, the paddle was definitely doing its job.  Later Cora admitted that she was paddling me harder as she wanted me to feel it even though dressed. 

And feel it, I did.  After the application of 30 swats I certainly felt well paddled.  I imagined it must be like getting a paddling in school from the Female Principal, regretfully, something that never happened to me.

Taking a deep breath I got up and Cora replaced the Spencer Paddle back on Her Rack.  I could tell by the sly smile on her face that she felt pretty good about paddling me good and hard.  Her stricter side coming out!

We returned to the car and finished our shopping excursion, enjoying each other's company and talking about some of the events of the day including the blog post and the two spankings.  Once home, I checked my bottom in one of our mirrors and found that Cora had turned my 'sit-spot' a bright cherry red.  And she had done an amazing job of concentrating her paddle swats in one area.  I was still feeling the effects.

Later in the evening while watching TV, Cora noticed that there was something funny with one of our small fans.  A discussion about the merits of the fan ensued and we found ourselves on opposite sides of why the fan was malfunctioning.  Apparently Cora decided to exercise her new-found strength and suddenly announced, "Get over my lap; you are going to get a spanking!"  This caught me by surprise as I had already been spanked twice before. 

However, who am I do disagree, so over I went.  I wasn't wearing much so it didn't take a large effort for her to bare my bottom.  We were positioned on our couch where of her Nu-West/Leda hairbrushes hangs conveniently close to where Cora was sitting.  She grabbed it and put it to work.

She did alternate between her hand and the hairbrush.  By the way, Cora's hand spankings are getting very effective and have an impact close to that of her hairbrushes.  So I just took a deep breath and tried to relax and endure her third spanking (its a technique that I have found works quite well when I am getting a rather extensive spanking).  Across from our couch are some display cabinets that have glass fronts.  I could see the image of Cora reflected in the glass.  What I saw was Cora raising her hairbrush high over her head.  She was really delivering a hard spanking with her hairbrush.  And it seemed to go on for a long, long time.

By now, I can't remember why I was spanked the fourth time but it was much like the third one.  "Over my lap" followed by another round with her hairbrush.  Not as long as the third one but long enough.

Afterwards I asked how she felt and if she felt sexually aroused.  "I feel 'giddy'; its sort of a spiritual arousal", she replied.  I told her that I definitely felt aroused and asked her if she was OK with that.  "Of course", she replied then followed up that it made her feel proud when I became aroused from her spankings.  However, later that night, I found that her wetness couldn't hide the fact that she, too was aroused.  I very much enjoyed pleasuring her.

This morning we are both basking in the afterglow of the previous day.  Indeed there is a definite 'glow' still radiating from my bottom.  I shared the wonderful comments that some of you left on yesterday's post, with Cora as I was serving her morning coffee.  One of the themes in the comments was whether we should be discussing the nature of our Female Led Relationship privately or openly.  Well, there are some things that we do keep private and may or may not share them at a later time.

However, we find that sharing aspects of our relationship such as was covered in yesterday's and today's posts seems to enhance our relationship.  And we hope it opens dialog between couples that read our blog.  Cora gets the first read of almost everything that is posted with total veto power, should she decide to exercise it.  And I find that often I can provide a much clearer message in my writing than in verbal expression.  Plus I have the ability to edit what I write so that its just what I want to say.  Often that becomes a real luxury.

So thanks, Ms. Deidre, Ron, Respecting Mistress and Alan.  We hope the dialog will continue as the subject of the 'Strictness' seems to be something happening to several of us at the same time.  And as our various relationships experience their normal ebbs and flows, I am sure that its something that will be ongoing.
In the meantime, its delightful to see the Glow in Cora's smile!
