  1. Way back when Microsoft ruled the roost, they dropped "American English" on the world.  Now that Apple rules the roost (yes, I know we could debate that all day but run with me) I should observe that, on an iPhone, pressing "space" three times in quick succession (not two) gets you a full stop.  On a screen, I think two spaces looks clearer.  Mind you, I am of an age where we used typewriters and took my mum's advice to do a non-certificate typing course in high school because "computers and coming in and it might be useful."

    In the end it all went smoothly. Sore bottom, no barking. Quite the relief! 

    Although the words of caution were and are correct, I am not surprised at the dog's reaction.  When I first visited the lady who is now my wife, we thought we had closed the bedroom door.  We hadn't.  The dog walked in, looked at us and cocked her head, wondering what on earth was going on.  From then on, she always checked her "mama" to make sure she was OK then just let us get on with it.  She was part chow (so very protective) and part collie (so very smart).  Our next dog just lay on the floor in a huff, waiting for us to be done.

  3. For me, as a dormant epileptic, spanking is a means of "clearing the brain."  What I feel after a good session, top or bottom, is the same as I felt after a seizure but without the distress.  Now that does not mean I can skip my medication or regular trips to the doctor for blood work and a general check-up but, yes, it is just another tool to be used in the right circumstances.

  4. I have never smoked, but when I went to the football in Scotland, I always liked the smell of a cigar or a pipe.  That was when you could smoke in public, so a long time ago.  It may have had something to do with being outside and just being part of the ritual - wrapped up against the cold, a mince pie and a cup of bovril at half-time and the friendly banter between opposing supporters.

    Least favorite smell has always been cigarette smoke.  I have no idea why, considering my favorite smells!

  5. Hang on a minute.  What sort of disciplinary spankings are we talking about here?  If these are real problems that need to be addressed, is she also talking with you about them (I don't need an answer)?  If not, I'd be bothered.  If it's fantasy or just "clearing the head," I'd be less bothered as long as there is open and honest communication.

    As for resources, it's been years since I attended a party at Spanking Club of New York (it's a long trek from where we live now).  I do recall that there were a few vanillas there.  It seemed to be a safe space for them to allow their partners to indulge.  If your SO can be convinced, I see advantages:

    1. She gets what she needs and you get to see what is going on.

    2. If you fancy it, you can participate.  If your SO has a problem with that, think about why that might be and ask her to be sure.

    3. A well-run party will allow you to explore, whether that is by spanking or just talking to a good mix of people.

    I do hope you find what you are looking for.

  6. Laura Kuenssberg is a Tory and probably slightly on the right wing of the Tory party.  Now, she is easy on the eye, if I may put it that way.  However, I don't see her playing a true dominant role.  Being very opinionated is not enough to make one a dominant.  In my opinion, she needs bringing down a peg or two but I am not sure her "Scot in London" persona would lend itself to that.

    Sorry to the non-UK people reading this.  I do not know how to translate this, other than to visit the BBC website and see if you can find a clip that you can play outside the UK, to get a flavor of what OP is saying.

  7. My wife and I choose to have fun when we play.  I am almost exclusively the ER.  Am I dominant?  Yes, but only because I am playing a part.  I have no doubt it is part of who I am but the dominance lasts for as long as the session.

    I imagine that wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but it works for us.

  8. 1. A knuckle sandwich is, by most definitions, a punch in the mouth.  So if we take literal liberties, one might simply describe it as a punch.  A punch is more likely to cause real damage.  Anyone who seeks that out would be advised to proceed with caution.

    2. I daresay a backhander can be applied with EE and ER standing up and the ER swinging across their body (ie, to the right of the EE for a right-handed ER).  I suppose that is fine if it's what you want.  I don't recall ever trying it.  I rather enjoy the different sensations of cupped hand, fingers spread and fingers closed via the forehand.

  9. Hmm.  If it works - great.  Some random thoughts:

    Doesn't it depend on the work dynamic?  Consider if there are other employees.  In many cases the thrill of getting caught is worth it to a lot of people.  But if that happens in a work setting, what does that do to relationships with other employees?

    If there is just a boss and an employee, then I suppose it depends, in the first instance, on whether the relationship is boss/employee or as friends.  I imagine that the latter would work better.  I am idly curious as to how a spanking relationship centered on boss/employee is good for operational efficiency.

  10. This got me thinking.  In Scotland, a conker that wins a game is called a Bully (Bully One for first win, Bully Two for second etc).  So I looked up my American College Heritage Dictionary.  Five definitions

    1. A person who is habitually cruel or overbearing
    2. A hired ruffian; a thug
    3. A pimp
    4. Archaic A fine person
    5. Archaic A sweetheart

    Now, if the archaic definitions float your boat, go ahead.  however, to argue that the absence of "Bully" from a glossary makes it outdated is, I suggest, about-face.

  11. When I lived in the UK, it was always more beer than wine.  Since moving to the USA, wine has taken over, because American beer is rubbish.  Seriously.  It's over-fizzy alcopop.  Even Guinness has some fizz to it, which is absolutely not how it's supposed to be.  I get my wine from a local wine merchant who buys exclusively from small vineyards.

    Like @Rand E, I have to be careful how much i consume so I buy the best whisky (note spelling) that I can afford and which the great state of North Carolina is willing to sell to me.

    I.O.M      Isle of man, they use a heavy birch to punish

    Well, they did.  Judicial birching was abolished in the 1970's.  I was young then but, as I recall, it was a compromise to enjoy some of the benefits of being adjacent to the European Union.

  13. @HubbyWishes Maybe a hectic life is a good excuse for not broaching the subject.  Your wife needs persuading and the impression I get from your writing in this thread is that she loves you.  So, even if it is just you that has had a hectic life, trying to persuade her would have been harder than necessary.  It's the basics of inter-personal communication.  You need a message, a sender, a receiver and a lack of noise.

    This is a tough issue.  I have been married to my darling wife for twenty years.  I am mostly ER but sometimes I need to be an EE, just to empty my head.  She is 100% EE, but will indulge me from time to time.  However, we have to plan it and pick our time carefully.  Sometimes she really gets into it and it feels effortless; other times, it is noticeable she has to work at it.  It seems to me that your main stumbling block is that she seems to prefer spontaneity.  Sorry I don't have any solution to offer.

  14. Dmirk, a parliamentary system is a lofty aspiration.  However, in my opinion, it works best with multiple parties in parliament and with little chance of a majority for one party.  That generally means some form of proportional representation.  We'd have to move from ballot papers to ballot books.  Not saying I'm against it, but it would take a lot of education.

    As an aside the vote of no confidence in the UK would have changed the leader of the majority party but would probably not have resulted in an early general election.

    On the bottom, couldn't a short tawse be used OTK?

    I can see why they wouldn't have done that in school, but it would work well for an adult spanking scene, wouldn't it?

    Agreed.  In that sense, it's like a leather paddle, but with the sting of two tails (or three if one is so inclined).
