We use Alexa to set timers for Lion’s eye drops. Sometimes she says she sets the timer, but then it never goes off. We also use Alexa to time spanking. Luckily she always goes off then. I think it may be an issue with subsequent timers. She rarely misses the first one. I decided to use Alexa for the edging timer. She cheats.

First of all, we played earlier in the day. It may only have been by an hour, but it was earlier. I started with a dildo. It was a big dildo, but I thought I would make him nervous after he questioned how I could continue playing with him if I don’t get turned on by it. I didn’t really think it would go in, at least not very far. When he suggested a smaller dildo, I found one and got that one in quite far. We haven’t done any anal activity in a long time, so I knew we wouldn’t get very far, but I wanted to try to get Lion more turned on. He also seemed excited by the timer idea.

I made sure Lion was well on the way to being hard before I set a five-minute timer. I wondered if Lion would think ten minutes of sucking would feel longer than ten minutes of spanking. We’ll never know. Alexa went off after five minutes. I continued to suck and set her for five more minutes. I was wondering if Lion would make it to the edge or not. He didn’t seem to be getting anywhere. Then, every so often, he made a little noise that seemed like he might. Of course, there was no reason I couldn’t set another timer if he didn’t get there in the allotted time.

It became clear that he was getting somewhere. His noises increased, and soon I had my cream filling. The odd thing was that he wasn’t all that hard when he came, and it didn’t seem to be a big one even though there was a lot of semen. There really doesn’t seem to be any correlation between how long he waits, how big an orgasm it is, and how much semen comes out. The timer hadn’t gone off, so I thought he’d gotten there before the five-minute mark. A few minutes later, I asked Lion if he had stopped the time after we were done. He hadn’t. There was no timer set. Alexa had cheated so he could have his orgasm.

I just know the two of them are working together. Be wary of artificial intelligence. Just sayin’.

Lion didn’t get excited for me last night. He said he’d been horny in the afternoon. It was late, and I don’t think he’d snoozed. We decided to try earlier today. We have some errands to run, and then we’ll do just that. The waxing will wait until tomorrow.

I think I’ll shove the small NJoy butt plug in for a while before I play with Lion. That will give him some time to get used to it before I try to get him hard. If he can’t get hard with it in, I can always remove it and try again. I might even be tempted to move it in and out a few times. I don’t know if that will help him, but it will amuse me.

I’d really like to give Lion an orgasm. Obviously, I can’t if he’s not even getting to the edge. I’ve wondered if I should set a timer when I suck him. We tried that a few years ago. I’d give him a hand job and set a one-minute timer to see if he could come before the timer went off. Naturally, the more we did it, the closer he got until he came. I could do the opposite this time. If he doesn’t show any signs of getting to the edge in ten minutes, we stop. I don’t know if ten minutes is fair. I don’t know how long I normally suck him. I think we can find a suitable number if I decide to do it. Of course, I could do it the same way we did in the past. I could set it for five minutes, see how far he gets, and then keep repeating for five-minute intervals until he comes or breaks.

There has to be a way to get Lion going again.

I am much more awake today than I was yesterday. I was so tired I forgot it was punishment day. Lion reminded me early in the day, but he didn’t get his just because spanking. I know he’s disappointed by that. Yeah, right. He said he thought I decided two spankings a week was too much. Ha! No, but thank you for playing our game.

We did not play last night either. That was a conscious decision. I didn’t forget to play. I was just too tired. Being on puppy duty has been running me ragged. This morning she was up at 3 and 5. Both times I let her out and put her back in her crate. She whined but I was able to get more sleep. I have been playing with her when she gets up around 5 so we can both go back to sleep when she gets tired out. Unfortunately, puppies tend to have limitless energy. Until they don’t. Full on or full off. There’s no in between.

I realized this morning that I promised to wax Lion this weekend. Ugh. The process doesn’t take long. It’s cleaning off the waxing table, melting the wax, and then waxing him that takes a long time. I guess I build up the whole procedure in my mind as something I don’t really want to be bothered with and then it turns out to be less of a chore than I anticipated. That’s one of my many bad habits I need to work on. Yay waxing.

We need to get back on track. We’ve been letting things invade our play time. When I say play, I mean just sex or BDSM with sex. Just because spankings are not play. They may get Lion turned on, but that’s not play. That falls under the punishment category even though Lion hasn’t broken a rule. They have the same force, or they should, as punishment spankings. They serve to remind Lion what happens when he does break a rule and to give me practice at improving my technique.

At some point we may not need just because spankings. If I can get my act together and punish him for interrupting or annoying me, I’m sure he’d be earning a punishment for every punishment day. That’s one technique he may not want me to improve.

Wishful thinking, but I thought it was Friday. I’m so tired. I want to say I’ll be able to rest this weekend, but it looks like I’ll be doing more fencing. The Houdini dog climbed through the lilac bush and got out yesterday. It’s not like it’s a waste. She needs more room to run. I have to figure out exactly how to do an effective fence that doesn’t cost too much.

Even with all the reconfiguring of the current fence and assorted other chores, I still had the energy to play with Lion. We didn’t get very far, but I tried. He says he’s stuck. I’m using all the tricks I know to help. Good thing I’m persistent. I may have to give up each night, but I come back for more the next night or a few nights later. Eventually, I will prevail. Lion will have an orgasm, and we will continue as before.

Sometimes Lion sabotages himself by worrying about things he can’t necessarily control. He worries about his job. He worries that I’ll get tired of him. He worries that he’s selfish. Now I’m sure he’s worried about the puppy. She is a handful. I’m not sure if he’s worrying now. I mean, I know he’s worrying. I don’t know if that’s what’s keeping him from getting to the edge and beyond.

Regardless of the reason, I’ll continue to give him every opportunity to get to the edge. Whether I let him have an orgasm or not is another matter. We can’t cross the finish line if we can’t get the car started.
