Mushbutt- a re-examination

A few months ago my dear friend Erica republished her thoughts on photos showing "mush-butt" - the capture (at high speed) of the impact of a spanking on a bottom.  Her post was originally made back in 2010 on myspace. Since then we have had the invention of smartphones, with cameras embedded in the phones which are more powerful than the high end digital cameras back in 2010.  In fact, my new iphone even has the ability to film in HD in slow motion.So far, I've only tried that capability out with my kids doing the funny fart noise with their lips (which I highly recommend if you haven't tried it!).

But a quick google search led to plenty of impact shots of spanking, and I predict there will be plenty more. Firmhand was notorious back in the day for showing a three minute video, half of which was the same strokes of the paddle or cane in super slow-mo. While those shots are cool, I don't find them particularly arousing. (And let's be honest- that's why I want to watch spanking videos.) Still, it's nice to see the impact, and I can appreciate pics like these.








okay so not a spanking, but still cool

Painal - it's a thing; and Kobe Bryant

Apologies and fair warnings in advance- this may be a bit more sexually graphic than most of my posts here...

I recently talked with a fellow spanko about her recent playdate. She didn't give me a total play-by-play but described what happened: she was well spanked, they played with ginger, and then it ended with a "punishment anal."  Record scratch... wait, what? Yes, I've read about painful anal sex in several spanking romances. It's almost sort of a trope of the genre. My friend Natasha Knight includes some especially naughty anal scenes, and my friend Morganna Williams posted something fairly recently that's another good example of the phenomenon.  But I figured those were just over-the-top made-up stories for the benefit of horny spanking romance readers... I guess I was wrong. I've heard of "thank-you BJ's" after a spanking but this was the first instance of a "punishment anal" I've heard someone tell me about.

My immediate reaction was practical- I hope he wore a condom, cause what if he just pulled the ginger root out, stuck his dick in, and the remaining ginger oil burned his penis?? (I'm reminded of the one time I played with a violet wand and was worried the spark would catch a fart on fire!)

Frankly, I have relatively limited experience with anal sex, though I recognize many (most?) spankos are into it.  From my limited experience I prefer good ole-fashioned traditional sex to butt sex.   Yes, the sphincter is tight, but once you're fully in, the fun tight sphincter is around the base of the shaft, while the more sensitive rest of the penis is encountering who knows what that's not that tight- vs. a "traditional" female sex organ that's tighter the further in you go. Does that make sense?

is not as much fun as

But the internet has evolved since I started this blog... there's a subreddit for "painal" of course, if you're into that sort of thing.

I find the whole idea of "painal" a little, uhm... uncomfortable. Yes, spankings are supposed to hurt.  but some of those videos look really nonconsentually (I know that's not a real word). and they make me uncomfortable. which is weird, I guess, because I'm perfectly comfortable watching a woman get spanked, and that hurts a lot.

When I think of anal sex, I think of Kobe Bryant.  I'm weird, I know.  Kobe Bryant is one of the all time greats in the NBA, and he retired recently. He was once accused of raping a waitress at a Colorado hotel, but the details are sketchy. According to the urban dictionary, "Kobe style" is to "go anal without permission during consensual sex, thus making the sex non-consensual."  There was a settlement with the victim, and I assume a non-disparagement clause with that settlement, but here she is rapping about how he made her ass bleed.



Anyway, after I wrote a post about blogging again I quit for a few months, and got some late comments that went into the to-be-moderated pile, but just thought I'd share this topic as it hadn't come up yet in my commentary on spanking.

In with the old...

Spanking blogs come and go. It's natural. Someone into spanking reads blogs, and thinks, "Hey I could do that! I have important things to say about spanking!" ...and they eventually get their courage up or get a moment of ambition and they start a blog. 

But... It takes awhile for a blog to gain a readership, and at the beginning they're just kind of talking to themselves. Still one of my most-read posts is one about this phenomenon- first posts are cool. To help new spanking bloggers gain an audience, for years Bonnie would post a list of new spanking blogs on her blog called "in with the new" providing links to new blogs and even helpfully color-coding them by type. You weren't really a spanking blogger until you've been featured on an "in with the new" post.  That's a task that was taken over briefly by Hermione, then since by a blog that's gone private.  --edit: and now hosted by Ronnie's blog. Thanks Hermione!

Having an audience is great. You can interact with others in comment or collaborating. It's fun. But... blogging can be a lot of work. At some point you run out of things to say about spanking that haven't already been said several time before. At some point you realize you're not writing on your blog because it's fun, but because you now have an audience and you feel compelled to post something. At some point, if you have limited personal "naughty time" on the internet perhaps there's greater utility and personal enjoyment out of spending that time reading spanking stories or looking at hot pictures or watching videos than in writing on your blog. Sometimes one becomes over-saturated with spanking and you'd rather spend your precious personal time on the internet reading and watching things like sports or politics or your other hobbies or something obscure on YouTube or Netflix. So blogs fade away. I posted something just a year after my blog was featured on the "in with the new" post about my "class" and most were no longer active.  I looked at my blog roll recently and there are several that haven't been updated in over a year. I should update it. Exacerbating this is that more and more we consume the internet on our phones or tablets, and I have discovered that trying to blog from those platforms is a real pain in the ass (and not in a good way!)

But... at some point maybe you realize there was a reason you enjoyed blogging, and maybe you miss it.  I've noticed a bit of a mini trend: spanking bloggers recently re-engaging after having taken a break.

Oh, and yous truly.  I took a break and have attempted to re-engage. I missed it. Perhaps it would help if I updated my blog roll! I bet I'm missing several bloggers who were active and have recently tried to re-engage- feel free to let me know in the comments.

should spankos enjoy a video of a HS paddling from a principal?

My last post was about a youtube video that showed (from behind a closed door) a three-swat paddling of a high school senior by her principal. I'm not going to lie, when I first saw it it got my spanking interests piqued.  I recounted my recollection of paddlings in school, each of which registered in my spank brain. But, upon reflection, the more I thought about it the more conflicted about it I felt. 

On the one hand, "Nancy" is a HS senior, presumably 18 years old, who volunteered for a paddling to get her out of a half day of detention.  She walked out smiling. It didn't seem traumatic.  I also presume that she agreed to the recording of this paddling in a release to appear on the show. (This past weekend we visited a church with the in-laws and they wanted to take pictures- I guess our kids and their cousins were cute all dressed up or something, because we were approached by someone asking if we would sign a release so that they could appear on the church's social media. Seriously?)

On the other hand, "Nancy" the senior was paddled by a school official in a real-life instance of corporal punishment. She only kinda-sorta volunteered.  I'm against real-life corporal punishment of children, especially older children. I recall a few years ago there was a video that was posted on youtube of an East Texas judge who spanked his HS aged daughter with a belt, and my reaction to it was revulsion and a triggering of unpleasant personal memories. I thought, not for the first time, about Jillian Keenan* and her courageous/infamous article about how spanking is sexual and should not be used on children.  I thought about William Saletan, another writer for Slate** with whom I've disagreed with in the past, and his courageous article about growing up and being paddled in school in East Texas (and receiving swats as an alternative to detention, just like "Nancy" in the video).  Though I hesitated to make any reference to "Shades of Grey" in reference to spanking, I mentioned spanking the hand of a toddler who can't comprehend the danger of walking out into the street or sticking something in the electrical outlet as not fitting into the black/white dichotomy of spanking should be for consenting adults, not children. I called it off-white/dark charcoal gray. I think it might lead to discussion, and I don't think "Nancy" was traumatized, so I'll leave the link in my last post up, but I'm still not entirely comfortable with it.

*As a total aside, I probably have a bit of a crush on Jillian Keenan. She's smart, cute, and into spanking. Here's a fascinating podcast of her talking about her new book. (I totally have that scene from Dead Poet's Society etched in my brain as well! and yes there seems to be a predominance of verbal spankos -well, and nurses!) And if you (as a spanking blog reader) think she has tough skin after her articles on spanking in Slate and the NYT, my bet is that pales in comparison to the backlash she got for advocating the legalization of plural marriage after it was picked up by Rush Limbaugh. I'm probably more conservative than most spanking bloggers yet I agree with her. The government should acknowledge marriage not determine it. My wife and I got married in another country, and because of a mix-up in paperwork, were not technically married for months after we thought we were. That didn't change anything, and shouldn't have, as far as I'm concerned.
**Yes, Slate is the spankiest of "thought leader" internet magazines, as I have mentioned a time or two before. They like to write about spanking and I hope they continue to do so. I bet their editorial meetings on the subject are interesting.  I just hope they don't mention that someone like me picked up on that fact!

A real life paddling from the HS principal

I stumbled across this in the months when I hadn't posted anything and thought it was worth sharing. I never experienced a school paddling, but I know they took place when I was in school. Heard several describe them- from the vice principal, shop teacher, and coaches; once saw a guy in middle school leaving the office with red teary eyes, and talked to a girl who worked in the office about it. This is the first and only video I've ever seen that records a real one. (Well, kinda. You can hear it through a closed door.) It seems to be from a documentary about corporal punishment in the US. Interestingly, some spankos at some point have found this before- while most videos in this series have between 50-100k views, this one with the paddling is by far the most viewed from the show with several hundred thousand views.

At this high school in Arkansas seniors who get in trouble can either take a day of Saturday detention or three licks with the paddle and a half day of detention. (Fast forward to about a minute in to see her walk into the office and hear the paddling with the door closed.)


I'll admit a little bit of feeling conflicted about the video- I'm against corporal punishment in real life for older children especially. But in this case, she (the one getting paddled) is not only a senior in HS but submitting to corporal punishment voluntarily. And not only that but it's not that harsh-- she's smiling afterward. Perhaps the vice principal was pulling his swats for the benefit of the cameras he knew were recording just outside the door.
