Bruised and Bloody

Lion's blood on his spanked butt
Here are the small blood spots on Lion’s butt. He has always had some “thin” spots on his butt. The bleeding is very superficial.

It’s strange to me that I’ve been giving Lion bruises on his butt. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I’ve tried to give him a bruise in the past. I was never sure why I would try to do it. I don’t know that I am still. But here I am, whomping him and leaving bruises.

Maybe it’s because it’s part of an experiment. I’m going to do X number of swats and I spank until I’ve done it. Maybe it’s because I’m training Lion. I’m trying to make him stay still for punishment. It has nothing to do with me. We’re not training me, after all. I’m just the one on the other end of the paddle.

I know that’s not true of course. We’re training both of us. He needs to learn to stay still and I need to learn to give an effective punishment. Does that include bruises? Apparently it does. I don’t think it’s necessarily the goal, but if they happen, they happen.

I’ve also been drawing some blood. Lion says I haven’t, but I see it.  You can see it in the image (above, right) Maybe it doesn’t come across clearly in pictures, but it’s there. I find that somewhat disturbing. It makes sense that he should feel pain. A bruise is technically bleeding too, but it’s not an open wound. I don’t want to take any chances with infection.

Lion– As former safety director for a very large BDSM organization, I’ve run into blood before. The sort of bleeding I’m doing is capillary and isn’t dangerous at all. It’s just a bruise that is leaking out a bit. Bruises are ruptures of very small blood vessels. So long as the implement is clean and is sterilized between victims, there is no real danger. If there is enough blood to spatter, a small bandaid on the spot is enough to keep things neat.

I don’t know what to do about it. I don’t really want to stop in the middle of our experiment. It just bothers me. Maybe it’s not such a big deal. Obviously, if there’s a lot of blood or if it’s a big wound, I’d stop. I guess we’ll just have to take it as it comes.

  1. The first time Mi Amor brought up blood like that it worried her. She now knows it will happen during a good punishment session. Especially when she uses her paddle that has about 20 quarter inch holes in it. It tends to draw it to the surface…. Good job!
