If you read Lion’s post this morning, you’ve seen the results of my first attempt at the spanking technique he wrote about. I’m not sure I did it exactly as shown in the video. For one thing, Lion isn’t over my knee. We don’t seem to fit together well that way. I also think my swats were delivered more rapid fire. I didn’t pause between them. At least not between most of them. When I thought about it, I slowed down.
Lion asked if I like the new technique. To me, there doesn’t seem to be much difference. Obviously, my way is a burst of ten swats on one cheek and then ten on the other. Last night I alternated swats between cheeks. Sure, I don’t need to count to ten before moving on, but isn’t the end result the same? It’s not like I had an aha moment and decided this is the way to go from now on. I’m undecided. When I asked Lion if he preferred the new way to the old, he couldn’t answer. He said it was difficult to figure it out. Mmhmm. Exactly what I was thinking.
I have no idea how long I swatted him or even how many swats I delivered. I guess I should have kept track. My guess is it was well over five minutes. Lion got very red and I think some bruises might have formed. He said he definitely felt it. However, he did have a few thoughts on how to improve.
He noticed that I hit mostly on the sides. From my perspective, I was hitting on the lower part of his cheeks – his “sit spot”. Apparently I need to figure out how to spread his cheeks apart somehow so I’m hitting where I think I’m hitting. He suggested I hit across the crack. That might help, but I think spreading will help more.
The other thought he had was that I don’t announce when the beating will start. I guess he can’t tell when the warm up has ended and the “real” swats are coming. I assumed he could tell when the swats got harder and/or faster. I’ll have to figure out a way to delineate the different swats.
Lion said he thought I was using a fairly light paddle. I used the hairbrush paddle. He said it’s a mean one. For some reason it didn’t feel mean to him at the time. When I picked it, I knew it was a mean one. I almost chose a different one because the hair brush is short. I’ve been picking paddles with a longer handle lately. Maybe I should have gone with my gut.
To be fair, I’ll keep trying this new spanking technique until I figure out if I like it or hate it. I’m not committing to using one technique over the other even if I like the new way. I like to change things up to keep Lion guessing. I can’t let him know what evil tricks I have up my sleeve.
