You may have noticed that there are no ads on our blog. It’s a personal project belonging to Mrs. Lion and me. Readership growth is an ego boost. It has no financial benefit for us. It’s irrational for me to care about the fate of this blog. But I do. So does my lioness. It has value to us. The funny thing is that it isn’t the value I expected when we started out.

I figured that the Journal would provide reminders of agreements we made and activities we tried. Mrs. Lion tends to forget things like that. I also thought that we could look back and see how we changed over time. In nine years that hasn’t happened. Mrs. Lion only reads my current post and corrects any typos she finds. She never comments on the content unless I probe her. She has never looked back to read old posts.

I was wrong. The blog is no help in that respect. We’ve managed to evolve without referencing our historical record. That doesn’t mean we haven’t found value. For one thing, the act of writing daily posts helps us organize our thoughts. We do communicate difficult-to-discuss topics via the blog. Even though she doesn’t discuss what I write with me, she reads and understands what I want and need. Sure, I would prefer a discussion, but one isn’t really needed.

I suppose that posts could become emotional weapons. I’ve read blogs that have degenerated into destructive rants. We are both very aware of how dangerous it would be if we allowed ourselves to go in that direction. We do get angry at one another. It’s rare, but it happens. I tend to talk about it when I’m upset. Mrs. Lion broods. She has become better at expressing herself since we began domestic discipline. We’ve made some progress. The goal we agreed on is for Mrs. Lion to use a paddle when she is upset by me. The times she has done this, I’ve improved, and hopefully, she felt heard.

Another unexpected value of writing this blog is the opportunity to hone my writing craft. My education after high school didn’t include a single writing or English course. Anything I know about writing is self-taught. I suppose that shows. Anyway, for better or worse, I have gotten a lot of writing practice. I think it helped.

My favorite benefit of the blog is that it allows me to talk about those secret sexual things I’ve always wanted to experience. It would be very difficult for me to start a conversation and ask for them. It’s much easier to write here. Speaking of which, I went back and looked at recent posts from Mrs. Lion. I see that I’m owed a racing stripe or two when she feels better. Ouch!

Listen to this post.


  1. I do enjoy reading your blog. Spanking in not my thing, male chastity is. I started out in 2009 when I ordered the CB-6000 and later the CB-6000-S. My girlfriend kept the keys until we broke up 9 years later. I can’t recall when I started reading your blog, maybe it was a year after you started, but what I did enjoy was your evaluation of various chastity devices.I ordered maybe a dozen different ones over the years, all but a few were junk. (I didn’t always follow your advice)
    Right now I have no keyholder but I wear a device, maybe 5 to 7 days during the week. I have become kinda addicted to wearing one. I switch between four or five that are comfortable as my weekly “decoration”.
    I will continue to enjoy Mr. and Mrs. Lions blog for a long as you continue writing it. (I am looking forward to you new book)

      Thanks for the positive feedback. I, too, have worn lots of very uncomfortable devices. You brought up an interesting point about wearing a device. I’ve always focused on its ability to prevent masturbation. You wear yours as a sort of lockable body decoration. I had a frenum piercing for many years. The way I thought about it was very much the way you describe wearing a male chastity device. Maybe I’m missing the decorative accessory now. 🙂

  2. The other day your post was about whether it nade sense to continue your blog. Today you answered the question. Absolutely!

      My post gave reasons why it might be a good idea. Emails between us would work just as well. Introspection is painful.

  3. I spent the last 20 years as a writer/editor. I only have a GED. Lucky for me it’s tech writing.

  4. I read your blog almost all the time. Articles by both authors 🙂 I am very impressed with your diligence and perseverance. You do not forget to write and do not abandon this work, even on those days when you do not feel well. For which you have special respect. I hope that you will not leave your readers in the future. I wish you all the best and, above all, good health.

      Thanks for your encouragement. We both appreciate your ongoing support. Mrs. Lion and I feel a strong commitment to this effort. If we decide to stop, it won’t be an easy decision.

  5. I greatly appreciate this site and all the content and effort you have put towards it! So much out there is in “fantasy land” and it’s hard to find content about the real lived experience. I’ve learned and been inspired by this content! In terms of not getting more comments, perhaps you’d get more if it wasn’t required to give out an email address? Just an idea. Disabling comments also seems like a fair option if it’s costly to you to have them enabled. But please keep posting!

      1. Oh, cool! I have a throw-away one to post before
