Taking down her panties

You know, I've gotten a little bogged down in politics and haven't had a good fun spanking post in awhile.  It's been a pretty eventful week in politics for otherwise boring summertime (biting my tongue and haven't even mentioned Wendy Davis or the fact that she's attractive!)

Back to spanking... It's funny how I can be inspired and think about spanking from something that seemingly has nothing at all to do with spanking.  See, right now I'm sitting here relaxing drinking a Miller Lite beer. It reminds me of those old commercials where they'd argue - one side said "Tastes Great!" and the other side said "Less Filling!"
Actually I prefer the more modern version:

But wait.. what does this have to do with spanking? ... where was I? Oh yeah... Taking down panties for a spanking is good, but why?  I imagine a similar argument brewing (no pun intended) among spanking aficionados... One side says "It's sexy!" the other side says "Hurts more!"

Please people... let's have peace and harmony.  Miller Lite is good both because it tastes great and is less filling (so you can drink more!) just as taking down panties is good not just because it makes a spanking hurt more, but also because it's sexy.  It's also sort of embarrassing and puts the spankee in a place of giving up her privacy and control, but let's not complicate this okay? Can we all just agree that taking down panties makes a spanking better and more fun for a variety of reasons?!

With that in mind... enjoy a few photos of taking down panties:

pretty sure this is from spankamber
from one of Claire's site, obviously, not sure which

Defense of Gay Marriage - A Christian perspective

I never envisioned this blog to be a Christian or religious blog of any type.  Yet I find myself compelled to comment, since I "outed" myself as a Christian in the last post.  See, the U.S. Supreme Court is about to hand down a decision on gay marriage in the next couple of days.  As someone who is in the closet about my  weird sexual desires, i.e., spanking women's bottoms- I have an affinity for gay people who struggle with their identity.

As a sort of pragmatic libertarian, I don't want the government making decisions when it comes to what folks do in the bedroom, even if it affects tax status or benefits, etc... It should be up to the individuals and their God. (I married my wife in a foreign country, and the minister signed the marriage license before we left, but we didn't consider ourselves married until after the ceremony.)

On the other hand, as a Christian, well... the Bible says homosexuality is a sin, right? So churches shouldn't embrace it, right?

Well, I urge you to read this article:

interesting points... homosexuality as a sin in the Bible - well, not exactly a loving relationship between two people. (kinda like how tax-collectors in the Bible arent the same as modern IRS employees)  If God made us, he also made deaf people, who make the best of it with their eyes and hands, just as homosexuals make the best of it with the parts they have.  

I have a pretty complex view of Creation and the 1st few book of the Old Testament.  If a loving God created us, how come studies show that the lower in the birth order a male child is, the more likely he is to be a homosexual? ("You know, he's not going to inherit much, maybe he'd be better off with less testosterone but an ability to dance/decorate/make stuff")

Maybe that's a little out there... but I see that as far more plausible than just "It's a sin that some people choose." And viewed that way, in light of the persuasive arguments in the article above, it kinda makes sense. Welcome your comments/critiques.

Christian Domestic Discipline is trending... and my crappy day

Well, didn't make it to the Texas All-State Spanking Party this year.  :(
Sorry Ten, and all the other folks I was hoping to meet or see again...

Sadly, work got in the way.  I couldn't play hooky like I did last year and go there instead. I can't even say that it was that productive of a day at work.  Mostly it was sitting around waiting, holding hands with someone else's client, and ended without a conclusion.  Grrrr... Oh well, good billables, right?

But then I get back and want to catch up on the days news I missed.  And I see this:
Look in the bottom right corner.  Seriously.  WTF? Now, I've somewhat guiltily admitted that I look to the huffingtonpost as a quick way to get some headlines.  I've even called them out for the time, a few weeks before a presidential election, when a supposedly political website showed that five out of the top ten most read stories on it (including the top 3) involved Kate Middleton's boobs and another had to do with zombies.   But the last thing I expected to see on there was something on Christian Domestic Discipline.  Not only that, but the story's marked as "hot" on facebook and twitter.  Here's a link to the HuffPo "article" that relies heavily on this site featured in my blog before as well as this article in the DailyBeast and this one on Jezebel.  The comments on the article on HuffPo are a treat.

Again, I personally think that adherents to Christian Domestic Discipline are a subset of a subset (domestic discipline in a non-religious-specific context) of the spanking community as a whole, and that they're probably a pretty small minority of those into spanking.  Frankly, even in those posts about spanking and religion, I tried not to be too revealing about my personal thoughts about the matter. But what the Hell (so to speak) -I'll say it.  I'm a Christian, and I think that Jesus loves me in spite of my desires to spank lovely ladies bottoms... rather than approving of it as a way to be closer to Him.  While it may have benefits that are very real, I see spanking as sexual play.  A fetish.  Not something to be engaged in for real behavioral modification.  Not something to be engaged in "for real" pursuant to God's commandments.

Yet... I'm so conflicted and troubled by my desires and actions that I have a hard time condemning those who practice Christian Domestic Discipline.  If that's the way they want to live their life, it doesn't bother me. 

On the other hand... Those comments seem to reveal that there's a lot more acceptance of spanking as a non-scary sexual act, and the reaction of most people seems to be "Yeah, right, whatever! Bet most Christian Domestic Discipline couples have a cigarette afterwards!" or "If the only way they can justify their kinky desires is to say God approves of it, more power to them!" and I think there might be some truth there.  

On the other hand (again)... Yikes! These articles reference several personal blogs, and have pointed criticism of some of the things posted there.  I'm sure it won't be long before someone on the internet somehow figures out who they are in real life and makes that real life scary for them. I'll purposely not post links to those blogs, but it appears as if the authors of these journalistic articles pointed out some of the most personal posts of theirs to condemn.  I live in fear that some media outlet will find this blog and think it might make for a good sweeps week type trashy story.  My heart sincerely goes out to them.

On the other hand (yet again)... geez every spanking blogger knows what being "chrossed" can do to your pageviews, but Good Lord (no pun intended) what sort of spike in traffic comes with a Huffingtonpost link?!

Paddling before travelling to Hell? Dante' and a spanko startle

I admit it.  I read Dan Brown.  I've read every single one of his books.  He has a formula, and it's cheesey, but it's fun to read and definitely a page-turner.  I'll even admit that we have some of the same interests.  I'd actually read Holy Blood, Holy Grail years before The DaVinci Code.  This was a book that advocated the premise for the fiction behind The DaVinci Code and led to a big lawsuit.

His subject matter is certainly interesting.  His book Digital Fortress explored the NSA spying on Americans years before uhm... recent headlines.  Years ago, when given the opportunity to travel I wanted to go to Florence, which I thought was, in many ways, the birthplace of the Renaissance and western culture.  There is a cathedral separate from the main city by a little ways, where Michelangelo, Dante, Machiavelli, Gallileo, Ghiberti, and Dante (among many others) are buried.  Hell, that's like half the ninja turtles in one chapel, right? 

More recently, his book The Lost Symbol brought me back to the time, years ago, when I roamed the underground passages of our nation's capitol. 

So with some unforeseen downtime recently, I snapped up a copy of Dan Brown's latest, Inferno.  At the center of the plot is the life and lessons from Dante' and his epic poem about a descent into hell.  Now you may be asking, "What the heck does any of this have to do with spanking?" and that's a good question.

Not long into the book, I was confronted with this...

"Langdon advanced slides to a frightening detail of a musclebound beast swinging a giant paddle at cowering people." 

Now Langdon is running away from authorities at this point, but the narrative takes a moment to describe, in detail, a painting several hundred years old.  And here is some detail from that paining.

Dante's Charon, swinging a paddle... okay so maybe it's more of a paddle in the traditional sense that it's an oar used to ostensibly row the boat across the river Styx to hell, but still... I read it and my 1st thought was "He's going to paddle the condemned?! maybe there were spankos back in the Renaissance too!" I wouldn't want to get hit with that!

P.S.  I for one have written quite a bit on gmail that I for sure hope never sees the light of day.  But I'm pretty sure the NSA has alot more worthwhile things to do than searching sexual perversions such as mine!

Questions and answers? Friday Meme?

So I'm way behind on spanking blogs, but saw that Erica had filled out some generic questions and answers here. "Ooh- Ooh, I can do this! that's easy and I don't even have to come up with a topic!" I thought.  So here goes...

4. Have you ever finished off the popcorn and ate the junk from the bottom of the bag?  No, I don't like that stuff; it gets stuck between my teeth.

5. What kind of top are you wearing?  You mean a shirt, right? Guys ARE tops but I feel a little silly saying I wear a "top" except well... this meme was obviously passed along among female bloggers. If you really want to know, it's a white and blue plaid shirt that I won't be wearing again for awhile because it's old and had a button issue -here's a pic of where I tried to fix it with a safety pin today.

6. Do you label yourself? Uhm... how about "Secret Spanko" -that's a pretty accurate label, no?

7. Name the brand of shoes you are currently wearing? Lucchese

8. Bright or dark room? Bright enough to read.

9. Have you ever been pooped on from the sky?  No, but I've pooped on a plane, does that count?

10. What does your watch look like?  I have a vintage Mickey Mouse watch with the hands that point to the... just kidding.  I have a nice watch, or two, but mostly wear a Timex Ironman indiglo. Cause, you know, I run marathons and stuff!

 14. Have you ever listened to a song and cried?  Yes. Any number of patriotic songs after 9/11 brought me to tears.  So does "Silent Night" on Christmas Eve with candles lit, for some reason.

15. Who last told you he/she loved you?  my son

16. What was the last furry thing you touched?  a friend's cat- feeding them while they were gone on vacation.

20. What was the last thing you said to someone?  Nighty-night, sweetie.

21. Have you ever been found sleep walking?  Nope.

28. Can you change the oil on a car?  Yes, but haven't in years.

29. How far back do you know about your ancestry?  On one side I had an aunt who was into it, and traced us back to the daughters of the Alamo and daughters of the American Revolution (We also had plenty of unsavory characters uncovered) on the other side, pretty much a dead end since one of my parents was adopted.  But the birth mom had a cool last name.

30. When showering, do you start the water and then get in, or get in and then start the water?  Duh. Who wants to get in a cold shower?

31. Have you ever crashed a car?  Yes.  Ice was involved.

32. Does every family have a crazy relative? Mine has a few who aren't, but that's a minority.

34. Have you ever sent a prank call or email?  Yes.  There are a few stories I prefer not to tell.

35. How old do you look?  I had on a baseball cap and T shirt after working in the yard last weekend and got carded buying wine at the grocery store! Woo-Hoo!
