Lion stayed awake long enough to play last night. Actually, I think he made it all the way through the evening without falling asleep. I teased him that the threat of no play was enough to keep him awake. I doubt it had any effect. He has no idea that he even falls asleep so I’m sure he has no control over it.

I hadn’t heard a Lion weather report for a few days. It may have been Monday he reported it was toasty. I didn’t get a chance to test that out since he’s been falling asleep. However, I believe he was still toasty last night. He might have been tropical for all I know. The important part is that he responded when I started fondling my weenie.

When he moved over so I could suck him, I wasn’t sure if he was sufficiently revved up or if I’d have my work cut out for me. I’d have to say it was somewhere in the middle. He didn’t rush right to the edge, but it didn’t take forever to get him there either. Is that because he had all this frustration built up? I don’t think so. He says there’s a point where, if I haven’t played with him in days, he isn’t very interested. I guess he didn’t get to that point yet.

I think it was the last time he had an orgasm that it was ruined. He didn’t make any noises to indicate he was close. I think it snuck up on him. By the time I realized what was happening it was too late to stop. I tried but I quickly went back to salvage the orgasm. Last night, he built up steadily and I could tell when he was almost there.
If we haven’t played in a while, I don’t like to give him an orgasm on the first opportunity. In the back of my mind, I know his birthday is coming up and he wants me to ride him. He’s already waited over two weeks. Do I make him wait another week and a half? If I let him come tonight, he should be rested up and ready to go by his birthday. Or I could leave him hanging. Would that make my riding him any more exciting? There’s also the possibility that he could get so excited by being ridden that he doesn’t last long at all.

Decisions, decisions. Obviously, I’m partial to an orgasm in the next few days because then I get to have it all to myself. When he comes inside me, no one gets the yummy goodness. Sad.

If you’ve been reading our blog for a while,  you know that I have a love-hate relationship with spanking. I asked Mrs. Lion to spank me almost twenty years ago. It took quite a while for Mrs. Lion to bring herself to the point of being able to hurt me. Since she reached that point, she’s worked to perfect her ability to make each punishment spanking memorable.

Since she’s perfected her craft, I’ve learned to hate it when she brings in the spanking bench. Her current approach to spanking me is very impersonal and business-like. Once she straps me to the bench, she goes to work. Lately, she begins with her largest paddle. It covers my entire bottom and is made from thick, zebrawood. If I were to offer my opinion, I’d suggest that she save that particular tool for later when I’m warmed up, and she can apply it forcefully. I have no idea what she uses after that. All I know is that it hurts a lot.

Every butt is different. Some go from pink to dark scarlet. Mine doesn’t. I get red, but not bright red. Instead, I develop little blisters and sore spots. I think they look worse than the red and black-and-blue of other rear ends. The areas with the little blisters feel leathery to the touch and very uncomfortably sensitive for me. I don’t bruise easily. Most of the time, when Mrs. Lion thinks she bruises me, none appear. Most paddles we have don’t seem capable of bruising easily.

One of the reasons she likes the “just because” spankings is that she gets to practice with different combinations of paddles. I dislike them because they are just as unpleasant as punishment. As it has turned out so far, each of the so-called “just because” spankings has been a real punishment. I’ve managed to annoy Mrs. Lion before each one. Ironically, she seems to have a problem telling me that the reason for the spanking is punishment for upsetting her. She tends to go to work on my butt silently.

Nevertheless, this is progress. She is spanking me and probably realizes that there is a reason she is doing it. Learning to observe and punish things I do to upset her is very difficult. I think she is becoming more aware when I do those things. She doesn’t seem willing to punish me when I do. I think it’s more difficult to learn to punish me for subjective offenses. In a way, it’s more important that she does. At least, that’s what I think.

Lion has been snoozing a lot lately. I’m wondering if he’s caught in the vicious cycle of not being able to sleep at night so he has to sleep during the day/evening. Last night the dog kept us awake. That hasn’t been the case for a while. She’s been pretty good for a few weeks. Last night she whined and barked. Anyway, our sleep was interrupted and I assume Lion will snooze later.

After my shower, he snoozed and then woke up long enough to ask if I wanted to snuggle. As soon as I got comfy, he was snoozing again. I was in a good position so I stayed for a while. It’s been chilly so hunkering down under the covers is nice. It’s even nicer to be close to Lion under the covers. The problem with his snoozing is that we don’t play.

The other night he snoozed until a little after 10. He seemed a bit harumph-y when he woke up. I don’t know if he was still tired, groggy or upset that I didn’t appear to be in the mood to play. He always says I take play off the table if he snoozes at any point in the evening. Somewhat recently, I’ve been assuming he’s rested after a snooze and we play then. However, 10 is a bit late. I’ve been getting tired earlier and I’m prone to snoozing while watching TV too.

Lion also says I can wake him up at any time when he’s snoozing. I wouldn’t like to have my snoozing interrupted so I don’t want to do it to him. If he’s sleeping, he must be tired. If there’s another reason maybe we need to have that treated. Even agreeing to play earlier won’t work if he’s snoozing so much. At this rate, the only earlier time to play is in the afternoon which means weekends. Lion needs more attention than that. We need to figure this out.

Caught in the act! This scumbag stole our packages on Monday. Recognize him? Please let us know. Click image to view full size. Feel free to spread the word.

Yesterday afternoon, a porch pirate stole packages from our front door. We have a Ring video doorbell, and it captured the theft. This is nice, but law enforcement doesn’t take crimes like this seriously. I filed a police report with the county sheriff. That’s as far as this will go. It doesn’t matter that I have clear images and videos of the crime. The sheriff doesn’t care.

OK, you could argue that stealing from a pair of lions isn’t important enough to get police attention. The chances are that this scumbag also robbed a dozen more houses yesterday. It doesn’t matter. We live in a white, middle-class neighborhood. Our property doesn’t matter. Sadly, my sex and ethnicity are wrong for garnering police attention.

We live in Washington state. Gun ownership is legal here. Mrs. Lion and I are seriously considering buying a firearm. It’s clear we live in the wild west and have to protect our property. I’m researching whether it is legal to shoot a porch pirate. I hope it is. Obviously, killing someone for stealing a package is a bit extreme. However, if the thieves learn that robbing lions can cost them their lives, they may not want to take the risk.

We aren’t violent and have always believed that guns are too easy to obtain. I still feel that way. I also know that I qualify as a responsible citizen who can get a weapon in any state. It makes me sad to think that I have no recourse other than to take the law into my own hands. The situation is that serious. Porch pirates have hit over 50% of Washington residents. The police do nothing more than amass statistics.

Criminals look for weakness in law enforcement and then exploit it. The cops aren’t making any attempt to curtail the situation. I guess we are on our own. What do you think, a shotgun or a revolver?
