One of the thing my wife and I have mused over for the last year or so is the number of visitors coming to our blog. In addition to that, the number of comments and private messages we get. It is really fantastic to have created a site that has become a resource and/or a place to share thoughts with like-minded individuals and couples. We had been under the impression that there really weren’t too many people doing what we do. And, while conventional wisdom will suggest that we are in fact a minority, still the number of us out there has been encouraging.
As we have stated before, we really feel that there are a lot of couples out there that could benefit by adding some variant of this element to their relationships. Again, all the good foundational parts of a solid relationship should be intact or at least some of them (ike love, trust, friendship, just to name a few). But with an open mind and some good communication, it could really help bring a couple closer together. Closer than perhaps they’ve ever been.
Speaking of variants…let’s give a shout out to Domestic Discipline-ers from the M/f perspective as well. There are a good amount of them out there along with those practicing DD from a M/m, and F/f perspective. And, last but not least, couples who mete out punishment spankings to each other, based on a pre-established set of rules that they have agreed upon. While this blog is mostly about domestic discipline, I’d like to mention those who just like stress relief spankings and fun spankings, and even those who do self-spanking. At the end of the day, I guess we’re just PRO spanking! 😉
It’s cool for us to realize that there are a lot of spankers/spankees out there. Next time you’re at a stoplight and a car pulls up next to you, just think…the man or woman driving could be one. At amusement parks, while standing in line for a ride, I’ve often looked at and wondered about certain couples, as to whether or not they are part of “this thing of ours”.
Here’s a interesting and almost telltale indicator as to if someone is a spanker (or spankee) – If they are wearing a belt, and you are behind them (like in line somewhere); a leather belt will often reveal if it has been used in a spanking. At least the doubled over belting version. How?
Here’s a picture I snapped when my wife bent over to pick something up. If you look at the arrow on the right, you can see how smooth and clean the edge of the belt is as opposed to the arrow to the top left. There you can see the leather at the edge isn’t that smooth. And, looking at the arrow below that one, you can see lines of lighter colored leather. This is where the belt has been doubled over several times before.
On a couple of occasions, I have spotted these indicators and wondered…have they been to our site? 😉
Also, I know we’ve had get togethers at our house the day after my Queen has taken me to the woodshed, and when I sat down on the couch, without thinking, have made a face and/or groaned as my sore butt hit the couch. Sometimes that has gotten noticed and someone will ask, “You alright?” or “What happened to you?” Without pause, I have responded with, “Ah, I pulled my back moving my desk around yesterday.” Or a variant of that. Then I wondered…I’ve had a friend or two do a similar thing and respond with a similar physical reason/excuse for the grimace or groan…I now wonder if…
I doubt that we’ll ever get to the point of spanking becoming so normalized where chatting with co-workers about it is common. But could you imagine?
Bill: Hey Joey, how was your weekend?
Joey: Well, I kinda’ pissed off Jess and she blistered my butt with her belt. Still feeling the effects of that today.
Bill: Ouch! Been about a month since Rita took ME to the woodshed, and I don’t plan on going back anytime soon. Hey, you wanna’ grab lunch?
That said, we are hopeful that some of the couples that have come across our blog and either bought the A.T.S. (Accountability Task Sheet), or just reached out to us asking for advice and direction, are adding to the number of new spankers/spankees in the World.
So to all of you into “this thing of ours”, thank you all for your continued support! We plan to continue to share, inspire, as well as learn. Cheers!
