A Woman's Hairbrush (Revisited - Again)

We have shared a number of posts about our thoughts regarding a Woman's Hairbrush.  I think its the ultimate symbol of a woman's power and authority.  A while back Cora spoke of some of her hairbrushes in her "Hairbrush Comparison Test" video and was even referred to in a comment in our previous post (thanks JD).

My fascination for the hairbrush continues and was peaked while reading some stories about women using their hairbrushes to discipline their naughty 'boys'.  But something really caught my eye: There seemed to be a special about an ebony hairbrush.  It seems as though an ebony hairbrush symbolizes even stronger feminine power.  As a wood, ebony is heavier than most and is certainly a scarce resource.

So off I went in search of one for Cora.  I found one on e-Bay and was able to score the winning bid.  It came from the UK and arrived quite quickly for its traverse of an ocean and a continent.  Its almost the same size as our older Nu-West/Leda hairbrush (the one featured in our wedding video last January) but it weighs about 20% more. 

Its getting hard to find a traditional flat back hairbrush that's large enough to make a substantial impact so I felt lucky to find one that seemed to fit our criteria.  However when it arrived I found that instead of a flat back, it had a slight concave shape to it.

So Cora took it for a 'test drive' and over her lap I went.  She found that she liked the balance and the weight.  She started to spank me with it, lightly at first.  Then she increased the intensity a bit.  Much to our surprise, the concave shape seemed to enhance its effectiveness.  When Cora applied a bit of 'English' (pun intended, remember it came from the UK) it really resulted in an intense sting accompanied by a rather loud 'crack'.  And Cora found that it seemed to have a natural 'snap' at the end of her stroke.  She said, "it almost spanks by itself".

It appears we will need to upgrade the video of Cora's Hairbrushes and I think she will be planning a rather serious session with it.  Soon.  After all its my birthday on Wednesday. 

More to come and maybe a video or two.

Our 2013 Holiday Light Show

I know some of you have noticed a lack of posts here for a while.  Well, no excuses but much of my time has been dedicated to the creation of our 2013 Holiday Light Display.  I know this is 'off topic' for the normal postings but I thought I'd share a bit of it here:

And if you want to see more of what we have uploaded, we have created a new blog.  You can see everything we have uploaded so far at:

Happy New Year to All!

Holiday Gifts for the Woman in Charge

Well, its that time of year again.  Cora and I have been really busy getting our Holiday Light display up and running.  And I know that some of you are wondering what kind of holiday gift to give to that special Woman, who is in charge of the household.  Well, we have a few ideas that we'd like to share.

The mailbox has been full of mailings from stores and vendors and a recent advertisement from one of our favorite pharmacy featured something that just might be the perfect gift for a Woman who is in charge of household discipline; 'The Paddle Brush'.  Yes PADDLE Brush.

For me, there is nothing more symbolic of the power of the Female Disciplinarian than her hairbrush.  We have posted several times and one of my favorite spankings from Cora was the one she administered just after exchanging our vows at our wedding. (You can still see the video in our posts in January).

So, naturally we just had to check it out.  Now, the advertisement showed what appeared to be a hairbrush decorated in holiday style in shades of red and green with a bit of blue.  However, there was a disclaimer in the ad that stated 'Selection may vary by store'.  So while we thought we could add a festive addition to Cora's hairbrush collection, it turned out that the closest thing we could get was one that was mostly black with red details and even a few rhinestones.

So naturally we just had to get one (only $4.99!).  And as we had completed our purchase and were leaving the store, I couldn't resist saying to the check-out clerk, "She gets the Brush and I get the Paddle".  (Yes, I agree that remark should earn me a date with Cora's Hairbrush!)

Our favorite site for FLR spanking fiction is, of course, 'The Library of Spanking Fiction' (LSF) and I love spending time reading the wonderful stories of men getting spanked, paddled, caned and otherwise disciplined by women in their lives. 

Well, they are featuring two volumes of fiction dedicated to Female Disciplinarians; one F/M oriented and another catering to F/F interests.  They do feature that other side of the paddle but that's outside the scope of this blog.  But do check out their site.  There is a link to them on the right side of this blog.

And as another idea you might consider one of the small OTK paddles that our dear friend, Dana Specht sells from her website.

Of course these are manufactured right here.  And I can assure you that the resulting sting is something you will remember over the holidays.

And for the 'Gift that Keeps On Giving', there is the full sized Spencer Paddle.  These are replicas of the ones that Nu-West/Leda used to sell and can certainly leave an 'impact' on your holiday.

Happy Holidays from us and may Santa bring you everything you asked for (and be careful what you do ask for).

Sharing This Thing We Do

Cora and I have been focused on preparations for our Holiday light display so, sadly our attention to our Female Led Relationship and the consequences from it, have been neglected.  Not that we both don't need to address each other's needs that are related to it.  Let me just say that I have been sitting way too comfortably for quite some time.

Yesterday Cora and I took care of some items that are related to our marriage last January.  I won't go into the details of what we were doing to protect the identity of the woman with whom we took care of our business.  At first we furnished some documents and information and the woman entered things into her computer.  Soon she had some documents to sign and as things started to wind down the conversation turned a bit more casual.

I can't remember the specific details but I believe the conversation had drifted toward discussing our recent marriage.  I remember mentioning how happy I am with my wife and 'disciplinarian'.  Yes, I sometimes enjoy throwing our little 'hints' of our relationship.  Some say I'll probably get into trouble over it.

However, this time, Cora took things to the next level.  She whipped out one of our 'Notice of Discipline' forms and gave it to the woman.  This surprised me as Cora hasn't even filled out one of these forms for quite some time and I was surprised she even still carried them in her purse.

The look on the woman's face was one of astonishment and curiosity.  Naturally the ensuing conversation included describing our FLR in a bit more detail including the advantages of resolving differences, arguments and my inappropriate behavior, quickly and efficiently.  I could tell she was intrigued.  Very intrigued.  She even kept the Notice of Discipline form! 

I offered to send her the Microsoft Word version of our form (as I have done for so many of you) but suggested that she e-Mail me as I didn't think it appropriate to ask for her e-Mail address or to send it to her place of business.  So far I haven't heard back from her but then its been less than a day.

But we did have some fun with it and I think both Cora and I came to the realization that we may need to renew things in our FLR world. 

I know that I am in 'need' and I also have observed Cora getting easily frustrated.

I am guessing a bit of a 'maintenance spanking would do both of us a lot of good.

And leave us both feeling much better.

Sunny In Seattle

Note: The third part of the 'Cora in BabeLand' is being delayed.  We need to do more 'field testing' but will post the final part after we conclude our research.

Sunny In Seattle

Yesterday was one of those very unusual sunny October days here in Seattle.  So Cora offered to dress up in her girdle, stockings and heels if I'd take her for a 'joyride'.  Now that's an offer I couldn't refuse.  So I pulled the cover off our 'toy' car and made sure the battery hadn't discharged to the point it wouldn't start.  However the new battery performed just fine and she fired right up.

Meanwhile Cora was getting ready and chose a pair of very tight jeans to go over her girdle.  I come from a point of prejudice but I think she look hot.  Especially when she enhances those tight jeans by wearing a girdle underneath. 

So off we went, picked up a few items we needed from the local stores and then ventured out to Alki Point for a cruise along Puget Sound.  Needless to say it was crowded.  Everyone and their dog (yes, its a great place to walk your pups) was there.  We saw a number of classic cars including a '64 Corvette, a '56 Oldsmobile and a gorgeous '55 Chevrolet.  It was great fun.
Cora at Salty's
We have blogged about our favorite restaurant, Salty's in previous posts.  Our route took us right by Salty's so we decided to stop and indulge in a cocktail (I actually had a beer).  So Cora and I had an opportunity to drink in the panorama and discuss all kinds of things (yes, including our spanking relationship).  It was almost a spiritual experience.
The View at Salty's
Two hours passed really quickly and we finally decided to head home.  Upon arrival I put the car away and Cora stripped down to her black PantyGirdle.  Needless to say I couldn't take my eyes off her.  To say that I was becoming aroused would be an understatement.

So, I decided to tempt fate (and Cora, too) and bared my bottom and bent over our kitchen table.  Cora took the bait and soon was applying paddles from her rack to my bottom.  She went through about a half dozen of her 'tools' including her leather paddle, a strap, the PurpleHeart paddle, the Spencer paddle and even the very large paddle (it looks like a small oar).

I must say that while she was making me feel the impact of her paddles, I was still rather enjoying getting paddled by her.  I couldn't help but turn my head to look at her while she applied her paddles.  The view of her hips in motion while in her PantyGirdle just added to the experience.

What Getting Paddled by Cora Looks Like
She finally beckoned me to get up.  I can't remember exactly what happened in the next few minutes but Cora adjourned herself to the couch in our front room.  Still feeling aroused, I joined her but instead of just sitting down, placed myself over her lap.  Again, Cora took my lead and quickly put her OTK Spanking Paddle and Hairbrush to work. 
Now its not often that I experience an erection during a spanking but I was sure experiencing one this time.  Afterwards, Cora indicated that she felt me between her thighs.

And while getting paddled earlier was rather intense, Cora really was getting into spanking me over her lap.  The OTK paddle can really produce a loud crack (along with a sharp sting) and I could even hear the wind whistling through its holes, something usually only the larger Spencer paddle can produce. 

And then she switched to the hairbrush.  It, too was making a loud crack as she spanked me with it. 
The result was that I ended up with a well spanked and well reddened bottom.

 Perhaps reminiscent of that morning's sunrise.

Cora in BabeLand

Our last post described what happened when I suggested that Cora dig out her harness and tools.  It left off when Cora indicated that she wanted to go shopping for 'Power Tools'. 

So off to the local Babeland store!

Prior to our trip to the store, I had called them thinking that I could get some questions answered ahead of time and find out what they had in stock.  The gentleman with whom I spoke was very helpful and as it turned out there were two 'tools' that I had been thinking Cora might consider adding to her arsenal.  The call was very opportune as their website indicated these two items were 'out of stock' but both were available at the store.

We arrived at the store and started to browse the 'Strap-On' section.  Soon a gentleman approached and asked if he could help.  I indicated that I had called previously and he indicated that he was whom I had spoken with.  So he already knew what we were interested in.

He was able to answer our many questions.  Naturally, this kind of purchase is of a very 'personal' nature but we both felt totally at ease at the hands of the very well versed sales staff.

Cora compared the powered 'Mistress' and 'Leo'.  The Leo was slightly larger than the Mistress but Cora found that the smaller Mistress seemed to transmit its vibrations better.  So it was decided!

What a great opportunity to be able to compare, ask questions and take it home with us.  Also, the staff at Babeland kindly gave us permission to take photographs (including the ones included on this post).  We added some lube to our purchase and extra batteries were also suggested.  Of course!  You never know when you need 'More Power!'

So off we went with Cora's new 'Power Tool'.  We'll describe what happened upon our return home including a 'Test Drive' in another post.

Its Been a While! - Revisited

OK, I know that its been about a month and a half since our last post.  The expectation of a discipline session as indicated in our last post, just 'fizzled'.

Thanks to those who checked in wondering if we were OK.  What has been happening is that our life has taken more of a 'mundane' direction.   Nothing bad, just working on building new fences, removing shrubs (including digging out stumps), being involved with a very non-FLR organization and also getting prepared for our holiday light display, something taking lots and lots of time resources.  Oh, and I have been working on keeping up with the production of the paddles for Ms. Dana Specht, but that will be the subject of another post which will be published later.

So, I didn't figure those who read our blog looking for FLR information would be much interested in what we have been up to.  Our energies have diverged from the kinds of FLR activities we have been describing here for several years.

At least until two days ago.

Often Cora and I take a nap in the early afternoon.  Sunday was no exception.  I had planned to make my famous Chile which takes at least 3 hours and figured if I got started at about 4PM, I would be on schedule for it to be finished around 7PM or so.  We rose from our nap about 3PM, so I figured we had at least an hour. 

James, over at his 'Spanked Male' blog seems to have been also posting infrequently.  But I have also not been keeping up with my favorite blogs of which 'Spanked Male' is one.  So I found that he had posted something on July 12 (Reminiscing) that really caught my attention.  It described a past visit to a lady ('S') where he got spanked and pegged.  I read this post just a few days ago and it, well stuck in my mind.
So getting up from our nap, I suggested to Cora that she dig out her harness and 'tools'.
Its something that we had done in the past but I can't even remember when.  We did a little fun photography during the holiday season in 2011 but that'sthe last time she has worn her 'equipment' and it was just for the photos.
Lately Cora has not been very active in going into her Dominant Female role, probably for the same reasons I have been neglecting posting here.  Just too many distractions.
So it came as a major surprise when she said, "OK". 
Wow!  So off she went and dug our her harness and associated 'equipment'.  She first took me over her lap and spanked me with one of her hairbrushes and small paddle that hang from her bedroom rack. 
Then I heard, "Bend Over!" 
She then proceeded to 'take me' and it went on until she was physically exhausted. 

I know there is lots of controversy about being pegged but for me its one of those 'erotic acts of my submission' to Cora and I know that she finds it erotic, too but in the sense of her domination of me.  Overall its a fulfillment of an erotic fantasy for both of us.  And if your are familiar with our Notice of Discipline, 'Pegging' is one of the check boxes under the 'Discipline Recommendation' area.

After we came back down to earth I proceeded with my Chile ritual (its really more of a ritual than a cooking process).  Since the first part mostly involves cooking down the beans that had been soaking since the previous day, I though I'd dig out our video, 'Bend Over Boyfriend'.  This gem describes the pegging process in very objective terms, gives examples and does so with a great deal of humor.  If this subject is of interest, I would highly recommend the video even though its now 15 years old.

During part of the video, Carol Queen describes some of the harnesses and 'tools'.  One of them was called the 'Treasure Chest' and featured a built in vibrator which was connected to a separate battery pack, probably a pair of AA batteries.  Cora immediately said, "I want one of those!" 

Well, when Cora expresses a desire for something, I usually jump in with both feet to find it.  Its a good way for me to rack up 'points'.  Well, sadly I don't think the 'Treasure Chest' is made any more.  Probably a function of an upgrade in technology where small vibrators with built-in battery packs have replaced the old ones.   However, there are alternatives.

One of the benefits of living in Seattle is having one of the 'Toys in Babeland' stores.  The Seattle store was the original and they now have stores in several other cities.  As it turns out they are celebrating their 20th anniversary just this week.  Cora bought her harness at that store several years ago and the staff was Very helpful in getting the 'Perfect Harness' selected.  She still finds it comfortable, easy to put on and, well, fun to use.

So today, off we went to 'Babeland' to check out there selection of 'Power Tools'.  That trip was indeed quite an adventure and rather than make this post longer, I'll post a part II in a day or two.  Let me just say that the folks at Babeland are still awesome, helpful and friendly and the provide a very comfortable environment, especially for women.  We highly recommend them, either in person or on line.
More to come.

Its Been a While!

Wow, its August already.  July has been a very busy month for us including another appearance in our local parade with Cora riding on the back deck of our 'vintage' Corvette.  Perhaps we will post a pic or two in a later post.

And while its been a hot summer, there is part of me that has escaped the 'heat'.  Well at least until now.  As I write this I am waiting for Cora to dress in one of her 'Power Girdles' to be followed by me getting a thorough spanking. 

Seems as though a couple of days ago I upset her.  Something about my 'attitude'.  I think I am not the only male part of a relationship that gets in these situations.  And I am also guessing that I am not the only guy that is not sure what I did to trigger her anger. 

We had a bit of a 'disaster' when our disposer developed a quick leak with water ending up all over our floor.  I tried to take charge as I could tell there was nothing that could be done to stop the leak and it was necessary to contain the flow as soon as possible before the disposer dumped its entire load on the floor.

Guess I may have been a little too 'take charge' and it pushed one of Cora's buttons.  Pushed it hard.  In the anger of the moment, I suggested that Cora go to another part of the house while I made repairs.  A couple of hours later I had replaced the disposer and things were working well again.  With the sink, that is.

I could tell that Cora was very upset with me but thankfully she did not go into 'discipline mode' right at that time.  However, this episode still needed a conclusion.  So this morning, I delivered one of our 'Notices of Discipline' with her morning coffee.  She promised that she would dress up in one of her Girdles and deliver a well needed (and deserved) spanking.

So at this time, I am waiting for Cora to get into her Disciplinarian mode.  For me, the anxiety is building and while disconcerting, it is also quite exciting.  I am guessing that Cora will leave me with a very red and probably blistered bottom.

To be continued?????

P.S.  To 'Joe' who left an anonymous comment on our last post, thank you so much for your very, very kind words.  It touched both Cora and myself deeply.

Big Brother and Recognition of a True Heroine

As a blogger that portrays 'Adult Content' we are subject to certain terms and conditions from those who host our blog.  Now I am not going to bite the hand that feeds us and certainly appreciate being able to post our ideas and statements without a fee.

That said, the following was just received in my e-Mail from the Blogger Team:

"You are receiving this message because you are the admin of a blog hosted on Blogger which is identified to have Adult content.
Please be advised that on June 30th 2013, we will be updating our Content Policy to strictly prohibit the monetization of Adult content on Blogger. After June 30th 2013, we will be enforcing this policy and will remove blogs which are adult in nature and are displaying advertisements to adult websites.
If your adult blog currently has advertisements which are adult in nature, you should remove them as soon as possible as to avoid any potential Terms of Service violation and/or content removals.
The Blogger Team"

I do not know if this applies to simple links.  I have sent an inquiry to the Blogger team asking for a clarification.  In the meantime, I will be removing some of the links to 'commercial' sites, including those to Dana Specht's and Caniac's sites.  I also believe this may even apply to the Disciplinary Wives Club (DWC). 
Cora Welcoming a Representative of the Blogger Team

It saddens me to do this but with only 3 day's notice, I feel I need to take action now.  I experienced a shut down of a Flickr site with very little notice and no response on a clarification (I still don't understand what I did to violate their terms and conditions to warrant being deleted).

Stay tuned for further information.

Also, I want to thank everyone for their kind comments on previous posts.  We thrive on the comments and we haven't been posting much lately (just not much happening that we feel is very interesting to our readers).

And finally, while we don't usually get political, I can't help but point out one of the most heroic things I have seen in a good long time.  Texas Senator Wendy Davis filibustered the Texas Senate for over 11 hours yesterday in an attempt to block a bill that would obliterate women's rights in her state.  Those in control of the Texas Senate had to result to lies and subterfuge to shut her up, claiming she drifted 'off topic', which violates the Texas filibuster rules.  However, as time was running out, the gallery erupted and those in 'control' were unable to get the bill passed and signed by the deadline of the special session.

This was a tremendous victory for those of us who support women's rights.  You may have your own political opinions and I would be the last one to step on them but serious practitioners of Female Led Relationships, we support all the efforts to support women's rights and try to do our part in the 'War on Women'.  I have to admit I got caught up in the drama of the Texas Senate session and watched the last two hours intently.  It was amazing to watch and to find the outcome this morning.  Last night, it appeared the bill had passed, but it missed being signed my midnight.  And while the Right-Wing governor of Texas appears to be calling the legislature back for yet another special session (just to pass this anti-woman bill), the victory, although temporary is still just as sweet and sends a message to those who would continue their agenda to suppress women.

Announcing: Dana Specht Signature Paddles!!

The Very Beautiful Dana Spect showing off her new paddles.
(Posted with permission)
Cora and I have enjoyed meeting many people who share our passion in the Female Led Relationship Lifestyle.  Many are you, our treasured readers.  But occasionally we have been honored by getting to know some of the superstar celebrities associated with 'That Thing We Do'.

Recently we have had the honor to get to know Ms. Dana Specht.  I'm aware that most of you know her by her videos, pictures and her website.  Its almost impossible to browse some of the Female Spanks Male sites without seeing her beautiful face, sometimes dishing out some firm discipline to a naughty boy or girl.  She is truly an icon.

Well, not only is she beautiful and one of the most famous Female Disciplinarians on the planet, but she is also a very generous and gracious Lady.

Cora and I posted a story behind my reproduction of one of the 'OTK Spanking Paddles' that Nu-West/Leda made available during the mid 1990's in a post on January 5 of this year.  The original has shown up in many of the pictures of Ms. Specht and in some ways she is now associated with that paddle.  In that post we shared the story of e-Mailing Ms. Specht and asking her for the basic dimensions from which I thought I could reproduce it.  Instead of just replying with the width and length, she traced her original and went to the trouble of mailing it to us.

So tracing in hand, I went to work making some reproductions.  They are made out of 3/8 inch 7-ply birch plywood.  The stock I purchased at my local woodworking store allowed for me to lay out 7 of these paddles.  We kept 3, and shared a pair with James and his wife of the 'Spanked Male' blog.  The other pair went to Ms. Specht.  It was something that I felt I wanted to do to show our gratitude.  Happily when she received them she replied back that they were 'exact replicas' of the originals.  I had been able to reproduce one of her favorite paddles, which until now had been unavailable.

At the same time she graciously complemented me on my ability to reproduce the original paddles, she also asked me if I would be willing to make a batch of them for her to sell through her website.  At first I thought, "... it wouldn't be worth my time".  Making these (and other) paddles takes quite a bit of time as I tend to want them all to turn out 'perfect'.

I delayed my answer to Ms. Specht's request and thought about it.  Ms. Specht shared that she knew that many of her fans and clients would love to own one.  So after thinking about it, I decided to reply that I would consider making a batch and see what might happen.  Consider it my contribution to our passion for the Female Led Relationship lifestyle, since most of Ms. Specht's fans and clients are more into the F/M thing.  Its a comforting thought that some of the implements I made might be responsible for a woman to roast the backside of her naughty husband or boyfriend (or even girlfriend).

So now I am pleased to announce that Ms. Specht is now in possession of the first 'batch'.  And these paddles have her signature proudly displayed on the handle.  Indeed, these are a unique tribute to Ms. Specht, herself and now you can have one.  They will be offered though her website and I have added it to our list of 'FLR and Other Related Resources' which is located on the right side of our blog.
Well, at least until supplies run out.  Note that these are not mass produced but are hand made.  Its a process that involves no small amount of time and effort.  I won't go into the details of their production but just know that there is a very limited supply of them.

Before the first run was shipped to Ms. Specht, I was able to snap a few photos of Cora posing with them and just today, Ms. Specht provided a few pictures too.  So here are some pictures of Ms. Cora and Ms. Specht showing off the new paddles.  Indeed, its an honor to post pictures of these two beautiful women with the fruits of my labor.  I am sure that there are going to be some very sore bottoms out there as a result.
