August went out with a bang. Literally. Mrs. Lion bruised my bottom on Monday night. My spanking was particularly painful. Mrs. Lion used a paddle made from thick conveyor belt material. This is the stuff used to move very heavy rocks and other pointed objects. In other words, it’s tough. This particular paddle has large holes in it. Some people think that holes in a paddle allow airflow and that prevents an air cushion from forming and lightening the blow. That’s simply not true.
The real effect of the holes is to provide more edges to trap and bruise the skin. When Mrs. Lion swings hard, the flesh on my bottom is pushed into the holes. If the holes are chamfered, sloped edges, no damage is done. If the holes have vertical walls, there is a nasty pinching effect that generally enhances bruising. Sometimes you can see the pattern of the holes on my skin. You can see them in the image of my butt after Monday’s spanking on the left.
Mrs. Lion is becoming considerably more serious when she punishes me. I think she likes to experiment with different paddles. Regardless of the implement, her objective is to make a strong, visible impression. She says I have made it worse on myself by suggesting she use more than one paddle in a session. I guess she is right.
Based on my experience as a top, I know that there are two basic spanking effects: red color with a sting, and deeper pain and bruising. Given a choice, I will opt for the deeper pain every time. I hate the sting. The lighter, wood paddles generate sting and rarely bruise. The heavier tools with smaller striking areas will produce deeper pain and bruising.
She has learned to disregard my yelps and screams. They aren’t a reliable indicator of the quality of the punishment. As a spanking progresses, there is a natural loss of sensitivity. After a while, more force is necessary to produce the desired discomfort. Mrs. Lion knows this and does a good job assuring it hurts from beginning to end.
A helpful indicator of how spanking is progressing is the red color produced by the paddle. Everyone reddens differently. Some bottoms turn dark purple-red with very little spanking. Others, like mine, are difficult to get past pink. Mrs. Lion uses color to assure she has covered all of the areas she wants to spank. She wants me to feel sting over my entire lower butt and upper thighs. Did I mention that I really hate sting?
Even a tough-to-redden butt like mine will go from pink to a darker red with sufficient encouragement. It will take a lot of work, but it can be done. I wouldn’t mind a bit if Mrs. Lion stays with pink. I suspect she will want to go for dark red at some point.
The second phase of the two-part spanking is with the heavier implement. The conveyer belt, rubber paddles are in this category. They inflict a different sort of pain. It’s deeper and slower to be fully felt. Some describe this as “thuddy”. I prefer it to sting. When applied with sufficient force, the marks these tools make will last for days and will be felt almost as long as they are visible.
The most unpleasant spanking begins with lots of sting which is administered until I begin to lose sensitivity and my bottom is the shade of red that Mrs. Lion likes. Even if I lose sensitivity, if the color isn’t right, she can hit hard and fast until my reaction and skin color is what she wants. At that point, she can bring in the thud.
If this sounds cruel, it isn’t. As an adult male, I am quite difficult to impress with a spanking. Bear in mind that for many years before we started domestic discipline I received “play” spankings that were every bit as mean as some of Mrs. Lion’s punishments. It takes a lot of work to get my attention with a punishment spanking. Mrs. Lion knows this and has been working to assure that I don’t mistake punishment for play
I didn’t make that mistake on Monday night!
