On Wednesday night when I unlocked Lion, he was hard immediately and stayed hard for the entire performance. I remember telling him I like when he’s so hard. On Thursday night, he got hard but then lost it over time. He said I got him close to the edge a few times. I believe he was only close once.

I won’t say he can’t have an orgasm when he’s less than hard. I won’t even say he can’t have fun. I know it feels good, to a point. I just think we’ve hit his plateau. For a week or two, he either won’t get to the edge or he’ll get there once and that will be it. Obviously, sucking him will still feel good, but I wonder if it isn’t annoying for him when I continue even when nothing will happen. I usually ask if he’s done. It’s not that I don’t want to continue. But I do worry it’s annoying. I mean, if I was done having orgasms and Lion kept licking, I think after a while it would be annoying to me. Nothing’s going to happen. Let it go. So I’m torn between wanting to keep going because it feels good even if it doesn’t feel good, and wanting to stop because I’m pissing him off.

No. I don’t think I’m pissing him off. I mean, it’s not me pissing him off. It’s the situation. I assume he’s frustrated because he can’t get to the point that he’s normally frustrated. These are the times I decide that if I can get him to the edge, I should keep going just to reset the plumbing. What I really need to do is stay the course. Eventually, we’ll loop back around to regular edging. I guess this is the problem when we decide to have longer wait times. I don’t know if it’s cyclical. If I make him wait long enough, does he hit another plateau at another X days? For example, he’s waited 17 days and encountered the plateau. Will he hit another plateau at day 34? Or maybe it’s a different length of time. Maybe it will happen after 12 more days. And then if he waits longer, it may happen at seven days.

It’s an interesting theory, but not one I want to test. My job is to get Lion through the plateau. Then I’ll start thinking about ending his “suffering”.

It’s difficult to tell if Lion is horny because he’s just horny or because of the cage. It could be a little of both. I enticed him more last night by tying his balls up tightly. He loves that. And then I edged him to the point that he couldn’t move at first when I was done with him. I like that. He’s already hinting today that he wants to be unlocked.

Tonight is the first game of the season for our NY Giants. We didn’t play our football spanking game yesterday. I was saving it for tonight. Added to the regular two swats for each point scored, there are swats added for a Giants fumble if they don’t recover and for each interception that’s our players’ fault. Of course, these are subjective things, but I don’t want to swat him if the other team makes a really good play that results in an interception. It’s not always our player’s fault that turnovers happen. On the other hand, when our quarterback throws to a spot where there are no players other than the opposing team, there’s no excuse for that.

Lion has absolutely no control over any of these things. He doesn’t play football. It’s just a game we came up with to make things interesting. Lion’s butt gets a workout and I get practice swatting. Win-win. It also celebrates the return of football which is very exciting. It’s really the only sport we watch and we miss it when it’s gone.

Depending on what time we start watching the game (we record it so we can watch when it’s convenient and we can zip through commercials), we’ll either stop after the first quarter or at halftime for fun time. He was easier to get to the edge the other night when we played Spankball the first night of football. Clearly that helps him. I think any attention helps him.

I bet Lion is hoping for a low scoring game tonight. With two swats per point plus a swat for some errors, his buns might be very red by halftime.

The long-awaited start of NFL football happened last night. I guess I wasn’t clear on Lion wanting to play our football spanking game. Initially, he suggested Spankardy and I was fine with that. Unfortunately, I was in the middle of reading something when Jeopardy started so we didn’t play. After the first score in the football game, Lion grumbled and started to get into position. Oh, ok. I didn’t realize we were playing and we hadn’t reviewed the rules. I had to ask how many swats he should get. Duh!

I don’t know what the score was after the first quarter but Lion had gotten two swats for each point. And I asked if he wanted to pause the game to play Suck The Lion. He did. No question. He’d been hinting oh-so-subtly that he was horny by outright telling me he was horny. I didn’t want it to get too late for our fun. I wonder if his horniness can overcome how late we play if he’s getting swats and is otherwise excited. I think the real enemy of erections is his thinking I’m ignoring him and he sabotages himself.

At any rate, I got him to the edge at least twice. I mean, very, very, very close twice. I might have gotten him somewhat close a few other times, but he was sweating those two times. When I was done, I think he was actually panting. He didn’t move as fast as he usually does. That, to me, means a job well done. If I’ve got his body thinking he’s really going to have an orgasm, and all sights are set on it and then I leave him hanging, bingo! Obviously, it’s a let down but that’s the point. Personally, I hate to get to the edge and be left hanging. Lion has done it to me a few times, at least once on purpose. I wanted to punch him. Do it all the way or don’t do it. There’s no stopping just short. With me, that is. He likes it. Weirdo.

After he caught his breath, we watched football again. He got his two swats for every point. I’m sure he’s conflicted. He loves football, but those swats…. Oh, he loves the swats too. Don’t let him fool you.

There’s been some confusion around here. At least, I think there has. Maybe I’m the one who’s confused. Lion’s ability to get aroused after an orgasm has taken more and more time. I proposed an experiment to see if he’d be hornier if he’s locked in a cage. We were rolling along until the dog chewed the cage. The new one is expected next Monday and the experiment will continue. In the meantime, Lion has been snoozing more and generally not that interested in sex. Until the other night, that is. He was horny then, but I digress. The lengthier refractory period means his wait times have lengthened as well. Before these issues, he waited four to ten days on average. I don’t know what his average is now, but he only had three orgasms in August. I guess that’s still within the average, but it seems low to me. Apparently, it’s not low to Lion. [Lion comments — The average from 2016 until mid-July 2020 was 6 days. Since July it has been 13 days.]

After I previewed Lion’s post for this morning, I asked if he wanted me to make him wait longer between orgasms. He said he does. What? I suppose there’s really no conflict between wanting to decrease the refractory period and making him wait longer, but I’m confused. In his previous posts, I thought he was saying he wanted to come more often. The refractory period was making him wait too long. I must have misunderstood. How long has he been unhappy with his wait times? I didn’t ask. I was trying to wrap my head around the fact that he wants to wait longer.

Since I don’t keep track of his wait times, I was thinking of dragging out the calendars that we used to signal when he would have a scheduled orgasm. I think I kept them when we moved. When I shared what I was thinking about, Lion said he didn’t think the blocks would work. He likes the idea of a dry erase board better. In either case, I’ve made a rule that it’s his job to keep that number up to date. I need to be able to look at it and know where we are in the journey. Of course, I haven’t asked how long he wants to wait so I don’t have a target in mind, but when I do I’ll have the current wait time available.

Naturally, I can make him come any time I edge him. I’m not suggesting he’s ruling the roost. But I am trying to make him happy so if he wants to wait longer, we’ll wait longer; unless I want an orgasm sooner. He said something about double-digit numbers and I jokingly told him we need to accommodate triple digits. He thought that was getting carried away. Well, you know, he has to be very careful. He said he wants to wait longer with no qualifiers. I might just take that to heart and make him wait longer than he ever imagined.

Silly boy.

[Lion comments — I don’t want to decide how long I should wait. Mrs. Lion has had difficulty getting me to the edge until we got to nearly two weeks. When I finally made it that far, she has let me ejaculate either the first time I was at the edge or the day after. I figure it might be more fun to push it for a while. I might be sorry I asked to wait longer, but I did and now I will bear the consequences.]
