Northwest Paddling Festival

Cora and I live in the Northwest part of the USA, specifically in the Seattle area.  Well, the news yesterday indicated that there was a uniquely Northwest celebration occurring this weekend:

The Northwest Paddling Festival!

We had a nice laugh about it yesterday morning.  Then yesterday evening, completely out of the blue (OK, its more gray here in Seattle), Cora steered me to the table in our kitchen area.  "Bend Over!", she instructed.  Of course, I complied.

She then proceeded to go to her 'rack' and applied about half her rack (there are now 14 instruments hanging from it) to my waiting backside.  About half way through, she reached into the waistband of the pants I was wearing and bared my bottom for the rest of the selections from her rack.  One of these was the big paddle (ouch!). 

For her final selection, she grabbed our new Spencer Paddle.  With this one, she really let go. (I think this was partly a result of watching a video of some Ladies applying a particularly hard paddling to some naughty boys).  Whew!  That paddle is the one with all the holes and it makes a swooshing sound as it travels its trajectory toward its target (me, in this case).
So, I am certainly glad that Cora decided to join the Celebration of Paddling in the Northwest.

The Leda Ladies - Volume One

It arrived Yesterday.  We ordered our copy from Amazon.  I guess Spanking has gone 'mainstream'.

The full sized book is very impressive with over 60 pages of the famous Leda Ladies.  Many are shown in 'action shots' and a bit of the history in included in the narration.  For those of us who love our ladies when they dress up in girdles, there are plenty of the Leda Ladies wearing them.  And there are also photos of some of the (lucky) men being bent over some of the creative 'Spanking Benches' including the famous "Dreaded Box'.  (I must spend some time in the shop and complete ours).  For those of you who are fans of Leda (and I know there are many of you out there), this is a must-have.  I know we will be looking forward to future volumes.

When the doorbell rang from UPS delivering the package which contained our copy of 'The Leda Ladies', we had been preparing to go 'out and about'.  Cora never leaves the house unless she has fixed her hair and is dressed appropriately.  And today was no exception.  But this time she decided to wear one of her short, black, very tight skirts.  Naturally, under it she was wearing one of her All-In-One panty girdles along with black stockings and a pair of some of her favorite 3-1/2 inch heels from 'Classic Pumps'.  In my opinion, she was dressed to the nines (maybe nines-plus).
I must admit that I am one lucky guy.  Not only have I found a Lady to lead our relationship and spank me when needed, but she is also a very attractive Lady.  She has recently gained back some of the weight she lost since the infamous 'Emergency Room' incident last September.  So she is again filling out her jeans and skirts quite nicely. 

I am so thankful that Cora is not obsessed with looking 'skinny'.  Instead, she knows the power of a Womanly Derriere.  I know I am helpless when she wears some of those wonderful tight skirts.

While out and about, Cora received lots of attentive stares from the guys.  And while in line at one of the stores we visited waiting to make our purchase, another woman walked up to Cora and complemented her on her attire. 

Upon return to home after unpacking our 'stuff' I perused our new book.  I was really enjoying the photos and suggested that Cora take a look.  And take a look she did.  A very inspiring look.

After kenneling our pups for their evening meal, Cora sat herself in the middle of our couch.  She had already retrieved one of our recently acquired Nu-West/Leda hairbrushes off her rack.  She directed me to drop my pants but to leave the underwear on, as she wanted to be the one to remove them.

Cora then proceeded to hike up her skirt and over her lap I went.  She then tucked her fingers into the waistband of my undershorts and pulled them down.  I waited for her next move with my bare bottom submitted for whatever she had planned.
Cora then proceeded to deliver a hand-spanking.  Now, this was not a 'Discipline' spanking, so I just relaxed and enjoyed it.  We were both in comfortable positions and Cora was starting out lightly, providing a rather nice warm-up.  I must say it was very erotic having my bare bottom presented to her along with the sensations from her stockings and girdled lap.  Very erotic!

Cora proceeded to increase the intensity of her hand spanks.  Then she reached for her hairbrush.  And took off where the hand spanking left off.  The intensity of her hairbrush was certainly getting my attention.  I had to concentrate on remembering to breathe.

I have no idea of the time but I was certainly in the 'zone'.  Cora continued to spank me with that Nu-West/Leda hairbrush.  She has found that she likes the ones we recently obtained over the older one.  And indeed, she was enjoying it.  Needless to say, my bottom was on fire.  But I was really enjoying it, too.

Finally she indicated that she was done.  However, I wasn't.  So I asked her for more.  She had no trouble complying with my request.   Cora has an ability to 'read' me and has always been able to know when I am starting to really feel the affects of her strokes.  In the past she has usually stopped at this point.  However recently, I have encouraged her to go beyond this point and push my limits.  (Actually its probably more pushing her limits).  Anyway, this final floury from her hairbrush left me with a very red and sore bottom.  Just the way its supposed to be.

Later, in our post-spanking de-briefing (!), we discussed what had happened.  Not only was I left with a warm feeling (in so many ways!), but Cora had thoroughly enjoyed it, too.  She indicated that she felt a tremendous stress release and a feeling of refreshment.  And maybe even a little aroused.

This morning, as I am composing this post, I am still feeling the effects of last night's spanking.  And I am loving the memory of it all: Her tight skirt, the exposing of her stocking clad lap, the hand spanking (I so love how intimate one of those can be), and finally the burning of my behind from her hairbrush.

Thanks to Leon for a wonderfully inspiring book.

Stressed Out Cora

Cora had a stressful weekend.  Things were fine but she got stressed out, nevertheless.

Stressed Cora

 I anticipated that she would be stressed and thought I'd present her with one of our 'Requests for Discipline' slips.  I filled one out and left it on her pillow on Sunday morning.  I was sure that a little spanking 'play' would help.

Well, it turned out the rest of the day Sunday just produced more stress.  When things finally came to a conclusion at about 4PM, we adjourned to our deck and enjoyed our 'cocktail hour'.  The conversation was wonderful and Cora was able to 'download' lots of stuff that had built up.  Being able to communicate is one of the most beautiful parts of our relationship.

I have been working on finishing up a couple of 'Spencer' paddles over the past week.  These were copies of the Nu-West/Leda paddles that I had purchased over 15 years ago.  One of the 'original' sits proudly on 'Cora's Rack' and its one of our favorites.  I decided to try a different finish on these two: Shellac.  Its an interesting finish and I applied about 5 coats, sanding between each coat.  Once the last coat was dry and sanded, I decided to apply some paste wax to finish it.

It was during our conversation on the deck that I was applying the wax.  I spent considerable effort with the polish rag and the result was a nice velvet finish.  I handed it to Cora who admired the smooth finish.  "Would you like to take it for a test drive?", I asked.  "Sure", she replied.

So, into the kitchen we went.  She had me bend over our table and began paddling me.  At this point she had let me keep my jeans on  "Don't hold back", I told her.  She started increasing the intensity.  Looking over my shoulder, I could see her wind up and apply what looked like a pretty hard swat.  Oh, and I felt it too!

"I want to compare your paddle with the original", Cora soon stated.  She pulled the original off her Rack and started paddling me with it.  It felt about the same.  After all, the new one was designed to be a copy of the original.  The new one does weigh about 1/2 ounce more (7 oz versus about 7-1/2 oz for the new one).  However, Cora found that the new one had a better 'balance'.  She continued to compare them back and fourth.  I was getting a very thorough paddling. 

Soon, Cora decided she wanted to continue paddling me but on the bare bottom.  Quickly, my pants were puddled around my feet on the floor and Cora continued her comparison. 

By this time I was 'warmed up' with the protection of my pants but now I was fully exposed.  She continued with an intense paddling.  It was burning like everything but I have to admit that I was enjoying it, too.  It was a combination of seeing her smile, not holding back and entering the 'zone'.  Wow!

Cora - Post Stress Relief

Finally she stopped and exclaimed, "Oh, that felt so good.  I feel like I have unloaded lots of stress."  And I am so happy that she receives such pleasure in paddling me.
