Oh, the word spanking. What kind of emotions does it bring to the table? Or the lap. Yes, I’m teasing on this gloomy Saturday morning. I write spanking stories mixed with suspense, danger, love, laughter, extortion and yes, murder. BUT… What does spanking add? We’ve already discussed that spanking is a genre that is here to stay. Spanking stories have been around for a long time. Readers can’t seem to get enough. I don’t care who your alpha male is – cowboy, alien, corporate CEO, attorney, doctor, outlaw or in the case of my series – smokejumpers. Powerful, dominating and sexy men rule. Literally.
What I think authors sometimes have quandaries about is what implement to use. Don’t laugh. There is an art to using every single one of them. Practice is needed, skills for using certain floggers, canes, whips, etc. and some are considered far too harsh, especially for the situation. Also, there’s the logistics problem. What am I talking about? Well, think about being at the in-laws and that pretty but mouthy wife needs a hard spanking. How in the world are you going to excuse yourself to get the job done? Do you go out for a drive? How about go into the guest bedroom and close the door, hoping that the music coming from your iPhone is enough to mask the sound? Then there are the woods…
Do I have your mouth watering yet?
Think about being at a restaurant with friends and she disrespects her husband in an egregious fashion. Are you going to allow the disregard for rules, and perhaps decency, to go unchecked? Hmmm… What do you do? Take the truck to the back of the crowded parking lot and hope that no one can see, or maybe instead hope they do, adding to the humiliation level? What implement are you going to use?
In both cases, I doubt you’re going to have a duffel bag with you, filled with various spanking tools. And there are dozens. The imagination sometimes is the only hindrance. From belts and floggers, quirts and whips, canes, paddles, spoons, carpet beaters, switches, and the good old fashioned hand, what is the handiest tool in the toolbox? Snicker….
When writing various scenes, I get BORED to death with the same ole, same ole. I just do. I’ve spanked so many women with hands, belts, paddles, etc. that I roll my eyes at times. Of course, in books. And so, I try and be creative, but the implement must fit the spanking in order for the reader to believe in the level of punishment. I highly doubt that any husband is going to have a handy, dandy whip around, or in the car. Let alone, this type of implement is considered severe, only sometimes used in BDSM, and should NOT be taken lightly. This is where the training comes in. But does he always need to use his hand and nothing else?
So, let’s look a few implements that are typical.
Yeah, I need to start here first. There is nothing more personal than the use of the hand. Think about the scenario… A nice dinner, a lively conversation that turns into an argument. He says something that you don’t like, you follow with a nasty retort, accusing him of forgetting all about you, he counters with another comment and the situation gets ugly. At some point, you’ve raised your voice, now screaming obscenities in a very colorful stream. Imagine his face, stoic, allowing you to vent and when you’re finally through, finally, he eases his fork to the table and looks at you. THE LOOK. The one that he only uses when you’re in trouble.
You begin to perspire, beads trickling down from your forehead. You know you’ve crossed the line. When he calmly says, “I don’t appreciate your behavior and we’re going to deal with this right now. Right here.” Well… You squirm in your seat, swallowing several times and fan your face as heat rises, creeping up from the swell of your breasts. Yes, you deserve a hard spanking for insolence. Yes, you know what you did was wrong, but you don’t want a spanking. Not now. Not in the middle of dinner.
No such luck.
He pushes back his hardback chair and pats his lap. There are no other need for words at this point. You hesitate then drop your head as you take that LONG walk to the other side of the table. Once there, he takes your hands, rubbing them with his fingers, and explains exactly what you did wrong and that he’s disappointed in you. As he guides you over his lap, lifting your skirt and lowering your panties, you long to be able to take back everything, every horrible word you muttered.
The pain rushes into your legs and ass and you wiggle, ready to apologize for everything you’ve ever done wrong.
Hmmm… I think you get the point. I think, and just my opinion, that a hand spanking is so very personal and can be used in various locations. What else?
THE WOODEN BRUSH
Now, I personally think that for most spankees, the brush is dreaded. This delicious implement is very portable, perfect to place in a glove compartment or a suitcase without drawing any extra attention. A beach trip, a business trip, a drive to the store or to see family – perfect. The handle, being short, is perfect for him to wrap his hand around. Excellent control and can be used in confined spaces. PLUS, the thudding pain, which is VERY different than stinging such as a cane or switch, delivers a highly painful whack in a short burst. Do you have one in every glove compartment or center console of your vehicles? Hmm… You should.
What if you don’t have anything that works with you while you’re out on a normal Saturday, doing those dreaded errands? You’ve both had LONG weeks and are exhausted and you’re particularly cranky. The snapping begins the moment you slide into the passenger seat. You had difficult employees, long days and the weekend seems to be nothing but chores. The ride to Target begins the snapping. You can’t help but jab at him for not doing the laundry or cutting the grass. You remind him that he promised a discussion about your upcoming vacation and – nope. He didn’t follow through.
What’s a girl to do? Act like a prima donna. Okay, so that might be extreme, but you get the point. We’ve all been there as women. Tired of doing the lion’s share of the household chores, even though this is considered our responsibility. What does you man think? What can he do? Wait until you are safely secured behind closed doors of course, but…
Target – you walk inside together. Only a few items to pick up and one last stop before going home. You continue to nag. Nag. Push. Biting words. Nasty innuendoes. What can your man do? Have you select the perfect brush for a hard spanking smack in the middle of the parking lot and all on a crowded shopping day.
This time, he says nothing and doesn’t even bother to give you the infamous – you’re in trouble – look. He simply goes to the brush aisle. As you stand there, gripping the handle of the cart, he goes down the LONG row of brushes until he notices the various wooden handled selection. He begins to pull them off one by one, feeling the grip, swinging the brush as you stand mortified. Soon, shoppers all around you are watching, gawking at the act. He feels the bristles then holds the third choice into the light, twisting and turning.
He slaps the back against his hand and nods, obviously satisfied. That’s when he gives you the look. You finish your shopping trip and when everything is placed in the trunk, he calmly tells you that you’re going to receive a spanking right here. In the middle of the parking lot. On the busiest shopping day of the week. Can you imagine your thoughts as he drives to the back of the lot – at least away from the heavy majority of other vehicles. He parks and calmly gets out, moving to the passenger side, opening the door. He takes your hand, easing you out then says in no uncertain terms that he’s going to sit down, push back the seat and you’re going to lie over his lap.
You can see the brush, fresh and new, ready to spank your naked ass. You wiggle down your panties before lying across his lap. Of course, the door is open and you know anyone can come by.
Ooohhh… The spanking itself is painful, but what about the concept of humiliation? Whew…
The tried and true leather belt. The very one he wears the majority of the time. The brown, well-worn inch wide belt is the one you purchased over a year before. You overspent, creating an overdraft on the bank card and there is no excuse. You know it. He knows it and there is no choice but to provide a punishment spanking. This one is going to hurt. I think the belt has been used since spankings began, often considered the go-to for many Heads of Household. The belt will leave marks, often welts and you dread this type of spanking more than any other.
But you deserve…
Saturday morning. He’s waited all night given his anger and decides to start the weekend off with a spanking, a round of heated discipline. You knew this was coming. Don’t tell me that you didn’t. When he commands you to go into the bedroom, undress and place two pillows on the bed, then wait in the corner until he comes in, thinking about the rules you broke, the basic infractions, you sniffle but refuse to cry. Yet you obey. As you’re standing in the corner, thinking about why you had to have yet another shirt that will hang in the closet, you try and think of how to apologize. You wait.
And what seems like an hour later, he enters the room, telling you to lie across the pillows. You’re shaking, anxiety kicking your ass, but you’re resigned to the hard spanking and do as you’re told. Arms over your head, legs together, face pressed against the comforter. He explains the rules again. AGAIN. Then he tells you in no uncertain terms that you’re going to receive thirty smacks. THIRTY? You’re going to die!
The leather strap hits you in the perfect sit spot and you wince, determined to keep your position.
The pain is excruciating and you’ll begin to beg for forgiveness. He reminds you to keep quiet as he rubs your back.
When the spanking is over, he gathers you into his arms, comforting you and the words are there. Forever in his heart.
I love you…
Well, I hope you’ve gathered a sense of just a few examples. In writing stories, the actions and spankings need to seem real, personal and perfect for the setting. What do you think? What is the implement of choice in your house? What do you like to read about in spanking books? Is there a go to implement in your car or truck?
My naughty mind working overtime.
Kisses and spanks…
