A little break

I apologise whole heartedly to those of you who turn up here regularly but due to a change in my circumstances there will be no blog posts for the immediate future.

I'm not sure how long this is likely to be, but I'd think at least a couple of months.

Hope I'll see you down the road a bit.

All the best

Not a spanking but still a nice shot

The CW's new series, The Carrie Diaries started last night in the US; it's a kind of prequel to Sex in the City, but with less swearing. Alright, no swearing at all.

Whilst the show is not really my thing I came across this photo of AnnaSophia Robb, the 19 year old who plays Carrie, and I thought it was worth sharing.

Please enjoy.

All the best

Paysite review - Miss Monroe presents Strict English CP

I love the thrill of logging into a new paysite for the first time; all of those videos that I've never seen before, the joy of encountering new models and seeing our spanking world from a fresh perspective.

Today I have something a little different; a review of a paysite that is connected to the site of a professional dominatrix. I've never seen that before.

It would also appear that Miss Monroe is an unusual dominatrix as well; she is the first dom that I've encountered who is happy to switch. I know that this is relatively common with spankees (I've taken advantage of the fact myself on occasion) but, in my experience, most doms are strictly that.

Miss Monroe's site is a pleasure all of itself; well laid out, with large clear images, and every detail you could wish to know plainly provided, including locations, tributes and services provided.

If you click on "Members" the site takes you to something else altogether; the portal to Strict English CP. 1 month's membership costs £16.41 on a recurring basis (via CCBill) and there are substantial discounts for selecting longer membership terms.

The Home page has a pleasant greeting, and the date of the last update, along with contact details for Miss Monroe. There are links to the last 6 films posted, and a clickable banner allowing site navigation.

One of the links from this is to a very comprehensive support page, full of useful advice on video formats and downloads, and also providing a contact form should you still have problems.

The site is extremely well organised, with films being accessed from either the Content page (fairly recent films) and the Archive page (older material, generally in somewhat poorer image quality). The site has only been running since November 2012 but despite this there are a decent number of videos to download (around 35 or so at my rough count).

The films are of verying length, from around 5 minutes up to around 1 hour; each is made up of between 1 and 4 downloads. Downloads vary from around 30 mg up to 220 mg, with the Archive files generally being smaller.

All of the recent videos appear in 4 separate formats:-

- Flash at 512x288 which allows you to stream online
- Windows Media (wmv) in HD at a size of 1280x720 for download 
- DivX (divx) also in HD at 1280x720 for download
- MP4 (mp4) at 480x270 playable on iPhone and modern Smart Mobile/Cell phones (some later versions 512x288)


I've copy and pasted that bit direct, to give you an idea of just how thorough the site is. Alright, and because I'm too lazy to retype it.

Image quality on the newer clips is wonderfully good, very crisp and clear. Sound is also fine. Some of the older clips show their age (and file size) by being a little fuzzy, but they are still extremely watchable. All clips are watermarked, but you soon don't notice this as you get carried away by the action on screen.

And so on to the clips themselves.

Here we find another difference from most of the spanking sites out there; there are clips featuring women being spanked by men and women, and also clips of men being spanked by women. The only other site that I know of that has all of these combinations is Pandora Blake's Dreams Of Spanking (although Pandora also has men spanking men clips, which this site doesn't).

The split is around 50-50, with maybe just one or two more clips having men as bottoms.

I doubt that you'll recognise any of the models on the site; Miss Monroe appears in every clip, either as top or bottom (but none where she has both roles - I'd love to see that!), and there are just a handful of her friends involved.

The clips contain generally fairly basic scenarios; they revolve around school, domestic punishments and the office, and you won't be startled by their originality. There are a couple of quite relaxed videos, one showing a session with Miss Monroe, and one of her being spanked by her partner, that have no plots, but are just good spanking fun. I like both of these quite a lot.

What may startle you, however, is the severity of some of the punishments, particularly those featuring male bottoms. Some of these actually made me wince.

Films with women being spanked are more moderate; nicely reddened bottoms and some good rubbing of sore cheeks, but nothing to scare away anyone who has looked at Dallas's site.

Most of the punishments start out with hand spanking, progressing to slippers, hairbrushes, tawses, crops and, of course, canes. Some start over clothes but the majority are bare bottomed from the very beginning.

I should note one other thing; Miss Monroe is a particularly good actress. The videos are entirely adlibbed, and she is very convincing, especially, to my surprise, in films in which she is the bottom. I particularly enjoyed "Correcting the Incorrigible" for her performance. And for the hot spanking too, of course.

Costumes throughout appear authentic, and Miss Monroe has a thing for classic stylish period dress, as you can see in some of the screen shots provided here. The clothes chosen generally highlight her frame delightfully when she is punishing one of her charges.

So then, decision time. Is this site worth your time and money? Well, as a fairly new site there isn't tons of material to download, and I know that some of you will have a problem with the mixed gender of the videos' bottoms, but these are the only 2 real negatives.

The films are very solid, and Miss Monroe herself is a delight; I'm only sorry that I'll never experience her spanking style at first hand.

The cost is very reasonable, and I love a well-presented and organised website; if you're paying to join a site the least that you can expect is to be able to find what you're looking for.

There's a bit of something for everyone here, and I can confirm that the films are extremely enjoyable.

I think it's worth giving a try to; it would be interesting to come back in 12 months time to see how it has progressed.

All the best

Kindle Spanking (or, Bits of Books Reviewed)

Well, no, not literally. I love spanking as much as most, but I don't get off on smacking the non-existent bottom of an electrical device.

And you can't use a Kindle to spank someone either; they're much too lightweight, and a bit small as you need to hold them too. Although having said that, mine is in a lovely solid leather case, and, whilst I wouldn't recommend it, I guess you could paddle a bum or two with it.

Might well fuck up your ereader though!

Anyway, back on topic. Kindle spanking.

Amazon Kindle is a lovely place; you can search the Kindle store for any given word, title or author, and it will bring up a comprehensive list of responses. let's try, oh I don't know, how about "spanking". I know it won't interest anyone here, but some people are into it, or so I'm told. No one I know, of course.

Anyway.

So, start to type in "spanking" and, after 2 letters, it gives me a list of possible responses. Oh look, the top one is spanking. I suspect that I may not be the first person to initiate this search.

Number of responses: 4231.

Oh, I am not alone! (Of course I knew that; have you never heard of dramatic licence?)

You can click on any one of  them, and get details of the book, including page length, and the cost. And let me tell you, some of the prices are crappy! Some are really reasonable though. You takes yer choice, I guess.

But do you want to know the best thing about these listings? The reason I'm writing this blog today? You can download free samples of each book, with no obligation to buy. Many of the entries are for spanking short story collections, so you often end up with 2 or 3 full length stories to enjoy!

Tremendous! Free spanking stuff! Plus, you know, it might help you find a writer or collection that you like enough to buy.

One of the first excerpts that I read was from The Adult Spanking and Discipline Handbook by Governess Gemma Forbes. I haven't bought the book, which at £8.03 for an ebook seems expensive, but the sample available is tremendously entertaining, and very down to earth.

True Spanking Stories Volume II has a series of essays about allegedly true spankings; I don't know if they are, but, once again, I thoroughly enjoyed sampling them.

The Big Ass book of Spanking is a delight; the first entry, The Alaskan Spanking Survey makes for fascinating (if improbable) reading.

The first story in The Punishment List is a surprisingly restrained and really rather good humoured effort; I enjoyed it immensely.

Ant then there is Ultimate Spanking- 20 Erotic Spanking Stories, edited by Miranda Forbes. For your freebie look at this book you get 2 complete stories. The first, The Spanking Man, by Monica Belle, is a gently amusing and quite touching story, getting inside the head of a young lady who has strange ideas.

The second is the frankly stunning Perfect Bound by Shanna Germain; this is as much a bondage story as a spanking one, but it is fiercely original and extremely well written. The main character is splendidly realised, and, even on a second reading, I found the story to be incredibly arousing. I'm quite excited just thinking about it now!

I urge you to give the story a read; it's free, after all, although I enjoyed it so much I felt honour bound to plonk down my £3.28 and buy the whole book. It's well worth the money.

And then there are several thousand more; not all are to my taste, and not all are particularly well written. But if you look around you'll see some names that you might know (Rollin, Miranda Forbes and Loki Renard amongst them).

I've spent a couple of very pleasant afternoons on this, whilst feeling a bit under the weather; it's a free and easy distraction. Plus, you know, some of this stuff really turns me on.

Give it a try, why don't you?

All the best

Pain Tolerance Levels

A lovely threat - Consensual
Pandora, of course, looking spectacularly cute
My old friend Secret Spanko recently posted a theory in his blog about redheads allegedly having different levels of pain tolerance to the rest of us.

I don't know if that is true or not, but it is of course pretty self-evident that all of us have our own point at which we cry out "enough", or mutter our safe word. Or just cry.

I've never particularly considered myself to be a person who deals with pain all that well, but now I'm starting to rethink that a bit.

When I was 10 years old I was into rock climbing; I had a fairly serious fall and broke my arm in 2 places and my wrist in 4, when on summer holiday with my parents. I was crying but only a little, and the hospital were staggered when they saw the x-ray results as they thought from my reaction that I had probably only bruised myself.
Pandora as schoolgirl and the slipper - most of my fantasies in one go.

When I was 17 years old I was at a disco, and I levered myslef up onto a balcony, having first placed my right hand onto a piece of broken glass. I bled profusely, and ended up having 8 stitches in the wound, without any pain medication.
And another, 'cos I like them so much. Thomas looks suitably fierce too!

I have twice broken ribs and I never missed a day of work because of the pain on either occasion.

I've had many health issues over the years, and I suppose I'm used to pain. I still complain about it though. In particular I have pretty bad arthritis in my fingers, and the pain from that is severe at times.
From Consensual - she looks so threatening !

In recent years I've become switchy, and I now crave a good sound spanking. My wife, who has put up with being (quite mildly) spanked for years finds my request to be spanked to be strange and vaguely distasteful. She does it every now and then, but only after a couple of weeks of increasingly desperate hints and then attempts to fashion an opportunity.

She spanked me Saturday afternoon, with her hand, but we were interrupted when we heard my daughter coming home. This morning, while the kids were still asleep, I got her to spank me again. This lasted for around 5 minutes I suppose, with a mixture of hand and slipper.

All told she must have given me 60 slaps with her rubber-soled slipper.

When she finished I felt no more than a mild tingle.

I was brought up on various cultural images of corporal punishment. Kate struggling to sit for some time after being spanked by Petruchio. The girl spanked by Elvis needing a cushion the following morning. Various youths being released from across the laps of their teachers or parents and clutching stinging rears whilst tears were forced from their eyes.

I've been spanked by a number of pro-switches; mainly hand but also slipper, leather paddle, riding crop and flogger, and never experienced much more than a mild sting.
Chelsea with the spectacular Mei Mara

I may be a bit odd but I want to experience a smacked bottom that I need to rub to try to ease the pain. I want to sit down a couple of hours later and have to squirm in my seat.
And again

Clearly my wife is never going to spank me sufficiently to generate this level of discomfort so, once again, I find the need to look elsewhere, So, as I pleaded a few days ago, is there anyone out there who can help me? I'd prefer a switchy experience but, at this point, if there's a lady who just wants to spank, I'd be delighted to provide a target.

I have no more hope for this than I did when I made the earlier post, but sometimes it's just worth repeating yourself.
Once more with feeling

Anyway, that'll do for now. I notice I'm rapidly approaching 200,000 page views, which makes me feel appreciated.

All the best

Tim

Pictures are as identified; Dreams of Spanking, Good Spanking and the Consensual Spanking blog I enjoy so much.

Strange TV show clip

I came across this odd clip that I haven't previously seen. Sorry if it isn't new to you, but it is pretty amusing. It seems to be set in a library, and all of the kids are supposed to be quiet.

They're playing an odd game though.

video





If this hasn't worked then the link is http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x90g7i_la-bande-a-fifi-chut-chut-chut-la-f_fun

I hope to have embedded the video here; fingers crossed anyway.

A modest proposal......well, not really

If I were to stay true to the delightful hyperbole of the original Swiftian inspiration for this title (as I recall, his essay suggested that the poor sell their children to the rich to serve as food), I would need to find some amusing and satirical spanking premise to detail.

Sadly that's a bit beyond my level of wit (although in truth Swift's sense of humour often sank to the scatalogical - he wasn't a terribly subtle writer).

Anyway it occurred to me that in a recent post I commented that I wouldn't be able to pay for a session for a while. This is true; sadly our finances have taken something of a hit in the last few months, and I haven't been in formal employment for 4 years now.

So, here I am with a forum to say what I like, and I've had 190000 page views in the last 14 months (despite several fallow periods); why not throw myself on the mercy of my readers?

In short then, here it is.

If there are any women in the West Midlands (of the UK, that is), who are reading this and would be interested in a spanking session (giving, receiving or switching) please drop me a line. I can't accomodate but  I'd be happy to travel, and I'd fit in with any requirements that you might have.

A couple of words of warning; I'm nearly 50 years old, balding and much fatter than is healthy. On the plus side, I'm quite a nice person, and I can talk about almost anything (well, not X-Factor, unless you mean the old Marvel comic). I also spank pretty well, and can take a fair bit too.

If there are any pro-subs/dommes/switches who want to take pity on me and offer extremely cheap rates I might be able to swing that too. Although I find this an iffier offer, as I appreciate it would affect your profession. Still, if you have a spare slot and just would like to fill it.....

In the unlikely event that anyone is up for this I'd like to blog about the experience, but the level of detail I use would be entirely up to my partner. Could be decent advertising though. You never know.

I admit to having stunningly low expectations of this, but, hey, people post on spanking forums all the time looking for partners, so I can't see that I lose anything by this. Other than your respect. What's that? I never had your respect? Fair enough.

I hope to hear from some of you (you know, I don't have a clue if anyone in the West Midlands actually reads this blog. Ah well.) One of you would be a very decent start.

All the best


Tim
