Christmas Kink

Happy Holidays, Fellow Kinksters! Hope you all had an amazing day. We've had a great Christmas eve and day as well. We hope you enjoy our side-by-side description of our fun.

For the first Christmas since I had children they are all away doing other things, so we had both days completely to ourselves. This allowed us for some extra special time together.

So, to start off this post we give you Lizzie's surprise to me, her sexy Santa's helper outfit:

Lizzie and I are traveling on the day after Christmas to spend a late Christmas with my kids. As with many times when we travel, Lizzie came to me and said she wanted to "feel it" when we drove the six hours to Phoenix. What that means is she wants her bottom to hurt the whole way.

I decided Christmas eve to have Lizzie take off her clothes and lie flat on the bed. Next to our bed is a large wood chest where we keep some of our rather large collection of implements. The stuff I use most often is in a travel bag while the bigger and less favorite implements go into the chest in nesting bins.
We enjoyed our first Christmas in our new house this year. Finding ourselves alone, we decided to make the most of the time. After Christmas, we are driving to Arizona. Craig knows how much I enjoy making road trips on a well-spanked bottom, so he set about making that happen.

I got several outfits for Christmas - some as gifts for Craig, others as gifts from Craig. We’ve included the most Christmasy here, but I’m sure Craig will post the rest on his Tumblr over the next few days. I love dressing up!

But there was also plenty of spanking over the last two days. Craig decided to make a scene (or several, technically) out of implements stored in our cedar chest. We have an organization system in the cedar chest that divides the implements into three levels: longer implements such as canes are on the bottom, two levels of bins sort the remainder of the implements. These implements are rarely used; the frequently used implements are stored elsewhere.
So I informed Lizzie that we would be using every implement in the chest one layer of bins per scene until we were done. To pace things, we began with the top layer Christmas eve.

Random implements served both as a fun "potpourri" of surprises and rediscoveries of rarely used items. Many surprised Lizzie with their painfulness.

Christmas day began with the second layer in the chest. Lizzie screeched and squealed as her bottom was already in pain from the night before. Christmas day evening completed our scenes with the third and final level in the chest. Here were a wide variety of canes and crops. Lizzie was so sore from the previous scenes she nearly levitated off the bed as we wrapped up our holiday scenes.

Well, we broke two implements along the way. But that's okay. Tomorrow, a nice OTK before we climb in the car to enjoy the rest of our holidays.

Happy Holidays, everyone!
For the first scene, Craig used implements stored in the top layer of bins. For the second scene, he used implements in the lower level of bins. For the third scene, he used the canes and crops stored in the bottom of the cedar chest.

By his own rule, he only used each implement once, so he had to make the most of the implement the first time he used it. There were several he was loathe to set aside, causing him to ruminate about why these implements weren’t in the more frequently used bag. But this rule made for some very interesting scenes.

As happens when we go through all our implements, there are a few that I’m not sure why we haven’t given away. And, as also happens, we broke two implements. But I’m looking forward to a very ouchy ride tomorrow!

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about our scene. And I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday!

One Quarter of a Million Thank Yous

In October 2012 we launched this blog as a way to share two perspectives to our kink. In two years we have posted close to 100 entries. But the amazing thing to us is this: we've had more than 250,000 pageviews.

Love Our Lurkers, Thanksgiving and now the Holidays. Lots of opportunities to thank our readers/viewers/visitors for frequenting our blog. So 250,000 pageviews is a real holiday gift. The idea that a quarter of a million times people have been interested in reading and seeing what we post (okay, mostly seeing, we realize) is amazing to us.

Special thanks to Chross for Chrossing us multiple times and thanks to Bonnie and Erica for sending readers our way, too. And lest we forget Hermoine, who had been an ardent supporter for many, many moons! (Get it?)
We've been fortunate. Our relationship and kink have grown in the two years since Lizzie moved in with me. We've found our way in our own D/s, discovered what life is like without kids and have continued to nurture, mature and season our dynamic. It feels natural, never rote. We revisit our commitments to one another from a D/s as well as a personal relationship basis constantly. .
Our friends in the community have only grown and our outward relationships with them have improved as well. Quite a lot to make us warm and fuzzy this holiday season.

As always, thanks for checking in, Fellow Kinkster. We do this for us, but we also are glad you get something out of Black & Blue, too.

Happy Holidays.

A "Migraine Spanking"

Lizzie get migraines. There is generally no rhyme or reason to them (well, there kinda is: sometimes they come around "that time of the month" and others are triggered by major barometric changes. She takes a special prescription pill and then she's down for the count for hours...

This wasn't the first time that Lizzie requested a "serious spanking" after a migraine. Somehow, I think, it clears her head in some strange way after the drugs she takes for them make her a bit foggy and groggy.

I'm no service top but I am happy to oblige. Week night play is rare for me because I get home with my head spinning from work, still having to work to do and/or exhausted mentally if not physically. So it's a treat for both of us when we do play "on a school night" (as we jokingly say).

I got home from work and Lizzie was in the tub. I helped her out and dried her off and told her to go lie down on the bed. I grabbed some implements to facilitate the "serious spanking" she requested and then set about to my delightful task.
Sometimes I really want a spanking. Okay, to be fair, that describes me most of the time. But sometimes, I crave a really hard spanking.

It’s hard for me to ask, though. I know Craig enjoys spanking me, but there’s that nagging bit of discomfort in asking him to spank me. In my last relationship, I could beg/plead/demand a spanking and occasionally get one from my ex-husband. But he had no genuine interest in spanking me, for any reason whatsoever. As such, the resulting spankings were lackluster at best. All of which makes me very reluctant to ask Craig for a spanking, even when I want one very, very much.

But I asked. And Craig said yes!
Started with my hand to warm her up, then ramped up to a beautiful red glow. Then I grabbed her schoolhouse ruler and set about to do some serious whacking (so serious, in fact, that at one point I was fairly certain I'd broken it—which I'd done before). After that, a handled leather strap, then a wooden paddle and finally with the custom, thick leather paddle that looks more like plywood than leather.

Half way through the scene Lizzie was whimpering and near the end she broke down in tears—just what was needed after one of her terrible migraines and subsequent medication backlash.
I was taking a bath when Craig got home from work. My bathtub is an extremely deep soaking tub, so I love having help getting out of the tub. (I can do it on my own, but it requires a bit of a leap.) Craig came in, helped me out, and toweled me dry. He sent me into the bedroom to lay on the bed.

I stretched out on the bed with my towel still on and Craig set about spanking me. He used several implements, but I’m sure he describes them better than I would. Before he was finished I was crying, which was just what I needed.

No Time for Spankings

Our blog posts seem to fall into three categories: 1. We're busy and don't have much time to play! 2. We played! 3. Something random. This is a Category 1 blog post.

We've been crazy busy. Yes, again. Aren't you tired of reading it? I know I'm getting tired of saying it so you must be getting tired of reading it. I travelled 20 days in November, so finding time to play has been a real challenge.

We went to Orlando together for an annual conference for my industry. While there, we had enough time to ourselves that we were able to get in a right proper strapping with my belt. As you can see, the results were perfect.
It’s possible that the state of insanely-busy just happens to be our natural state. We travel so much together and Craig travels even more for work.

But sometimes, I get to go along on the work trips. Taking advantage of our room at the end of the hall, Craig gave me a lovely strapping. (I do wonder what Craig’s travel coordinator thinks of his request that we get a room at the end of the hall whenever we travel together, but I can’t worry too much about that.)
As I began, Lizzie yelped a few times from the blows. But as I progressed, I gave it my all, really putting a strong swing into it. After a dozen, she settled in for the rest, moaning and grunting with satisfaction. Lizzie loves a good strapping. I love when Craig straps me. It’s possibly my favorite thing. At least, my favorite of impact play. Maybe. To be fair, I love lots of things that we do. But I do love strappings. And this was no exception.
