Friday was a strange afternoon. We got some lunch, Lion got a haircut and we came home. Lion watched TV and snoozed a while. I played The Sims. Neither of us was hungry at dinner time. That always throws things off. We were finally hungry at around 8 so I made some snacks. Any play we’d do would happen late, if at all.
Around 9:30 I wondered if it was too late to give Lion his punishment swats. He said it’s never a good time. I suppose that’s true. He may like the idea of getting spanked and he may present his butt appropriately, but he definitely does not look forward to actually receiving the swats.
I decided to use the thick, rubber paddle. Lion says it’s thuddy. The last time I used it on him was for a play spanking and we discovered something interesting. If I use the side that curves away from him, it’s thuddy. If I use the side that curves toward him, it has more of a sting. Both sides are very useful. Aside from the thuddiness of it, I was looking for less marking on the edges. The wooden paddles seem to deliver more force toward the edges and I think that’s what causes bleeding. It’s just a theory, of course. The other reason for using the rubber paddle is that it does some of the work. A slight flick away springs back easily – like a rubber band.
Lion’s buns got very pink very quickly. This paddle is indeed very mean. I didn’t time the spanking. I wanted to concentrate on what I was doing rather than worrying about how long I was doing it. Even if I had set a timer, I would have been worried about when it would go off and had I gotten my task completed in the allotted time. No thank you. I’ll know when it’s time.
I tried to concentrate more on Lion’s sit spot. I made more contact with his lower cheeks and upper thighs. I pulled open his cheeks to try to share the wealth inside. I think I’ll need a narrower paddle to accomplish that. I was even thinking of looking for a riding crop for that intimate area.
Eventually, I inspected the area more closely. I was surprised to find a nasty looking welt on his upper left thigh outside of the area I was aiming for. Apparently the paddle had wrapped. I felt bad immediately. Lion said it didn’t hurt. It’s not surprising. His buns were burning all over. One area would not necessarily hurt more than another.
Despite the evil-looking welt, there was no sign of blood. There were spots that looked like they would have bled if I’d been using a wooden paddle, but no actual blood.
This morning, Lion reported that he does have a sore spot but the welt has calmed down considerably. It’s a normal bruise now and Lion says it’s fine. Let me be clear, even after his buns were no longer burning, Lion was not concerned about the welt. While I was still worried about it, as long as he was fine with it, I realized it wasn’t as serious as I had thought.
Sometime after the spanking, Lion made a comment about my being a one paddle person. I use different paddles all the time so I didn’t understand what he meant. He said I only use one paddle per punishment. It never occurred to me to use different ones. I do for a play spanking but that usually has more to do with building up the intensity. I guess if I add a crop or other narrow paddle for his crack, I’ll have graduated to the next level. Who knew? All this time I’ve just been searching for the one paddle that did what I wanted it to do in that particular punishment session. Sometimes I feel stupid. [Lion — Mrs. Lion is very smart. She focused on a single tool so that she could master it. Now that there is real estate needing something else, I know she will find it.]
Mrs. Lion was worried that she wouldn’t have enough opportunity to perfect her spanking. We agreed she could do “maintenance” spankings on a near-daily basis to help her along. Thursday night, on our way home from my physical therapy, I interrupted Mrs. Lion. I guess she won’t need a maintenance spanking right away. To make matters worse, later that evening I managed to get food on my T-shirt. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your point of view, Mrs. Lion’s leg was hurting and she decided to postpone my spanking.
Last night, she took care of business. She spanked me with her hard rubber paddle. This was the nuclear paddle option. It is the worst I ever used during my topping days.
Oh boy, did it hurt!
Mrs. Lion did not hold back. Lioness 3.0, maybe 4.0 is in full residence. When she was done, she observed that it did not cause any bleeding. I imagine this will become her weapon of choice. She noticed that I have one rather large bruise on the lower left cheek. She finished the spanking about 15 minutes ago and I’m starting to feel that bruise now. She mentioned that she thinks that might be too much. It’s impossible to say now. When she checks in the morning, she can decide if she needs to be a little more selective in which spots she chooses to give full thrust to. This is all part of the learning process. I can honestly say I hated every second of the spanking. I deserved it.
Thursday’s mail brought my new Evotion Orion male chastity device. This is a wonderful 3D-printed male chastity device. I immediately put it on. When Mrs. Lion came home from work, I showed it to her and asked her if she wanted me to take it off. She didn’t. What a surprise! It’s been on ever since. I’m planning to write a full review after I’ve had the chance to live in it for a while.
As you can see in the picture, it’s a little different than most of the devices I’ve run across. For one thing, it’s in three pieces: the base ring, a midsection, and the tip. Evotion makes devices designed to be worn with piercings. The Orion is capable of being worn with or without one. The three-piece design makes it easier for guys with pierced penises to get the device on and off.
Unlike any other device I have, the top of the base ring is not designed to sit flush against my body. In fact, the keyhole is on the body side of the base ring. As you can see in the picture, some of the root of my penis is visible before the base ring begins. Much more about this in my review. There is one other very noteworthy feature: The design of the front of the cage allows my urethra to remain centered. I’ve had absolutely no trouble urinating in the toilet. The device has a cool Easter egg. If you look very closely at the front of the cage, you will see my name in raised letters centered on top of the front piece. That makes it easy for Mrs. Lion to be sure she has the right penis before she unlocks it.
Mrs. Lion still prefers me to be wild. She isn’t too happy about taking off and putting on chastity devices. This one is pretty easy to lock and unlock. The three pieces fit together solidly without any fiddling around.
After about 36 hours of wear, I can say that this is a very very comfortable form of penis bondage. Aside from being quite pretty and brightly colored, the Orion is extremely lightweight. The fit is perfect. It was quite easy to measure.
In the short time it’s taken me to write this much of the post, I’m feeling the bruise on my left side. I’m willing to bet it will still keep hurting me tomorrow. With a little fine-tuning I think Mrs. Lion will have an excellent teaching tool for me.
But I digress. There’s nothing like a fresh bruise to distract one from writing. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been locked into a chastity device. I’m finding myself quite horny. This is in sharp contrast to my rather indifferent sexual interest over the last several weeks. Just goes to show that I will always want something when I can’t have it. Stupid lion.
The other night Lion was in the bathroom and I vaguely heard him say, “It was a dark and stormy night….” I wondered why he said that. I hadn’t been paying attention to the weather report that was on TV. It’s almost always stormy around here anyway. We’ve had a flood warning for a few days and I just heard we’re in for three storms in a row. Even if they miss us, the mountains will get something and it will all wash down in the rivers which are already pretty high.
Last night Lion listed off things he wants to do this weekend. I dislike when every day is taken up by errands. The dog has a bath scheduled for Sunday. Lion wants a haircut and also wanted to go into Seattle. I don’t want to schlepp around in rain all weekend. My compromise is a haircut this afternoon and the dog’s bath Sunday. Seattle can wait. Lion agreed. He almost had to. I’m in charge and I’m the driver.
I still need to clean up a bunch of stuff from moving. I have no idea when I’ll go back into the pantry to dig through the stacks of boxes in there. Lion says he’s been looking for a certain thing and I know it has to be in the boxes. If I had any idea which one I’d search. My focus will be on clearing things out of the livable portion of the house before I tackle the hidden areas.
Of course, I still need to give Lion attention. He’s been wearing his new chastity cage for over a day now. I left him in it so he’s have some idea how it feels to pee and to sleep in it. I haven’t heard any complaints so far. I’m sure by tonight he’ll be looking forward to getting out and having some fun. I’ll let him out so he can shower in case he’s stinky. No reason I have to suffer.
Wednesday night, before dinner, I interrupted Mrs. Lion. She was in the middle of a thought and just emitted a low growl and then went on with what she was saying. When she was done speaking, I asked her why she growled at me. She said that I interrupted her not once, but twice. This was followed by silence so I asked her if that meant I was going to be spanked. She said yes. I then asked why she didn’t tell me. She said that she was busy talking about something else.
Okay, I get it. That makes sense. In terms of educating me, I think it would be more helpful if I got a quick bulletin at the time of my offense. I’m really not sure exactly when I interrupted her.
You may recall that in my post yesterday I mentioned that Mrs. Lion growled at me for interrupting her. At the time, she didn’t feel that she wanted to spank me. I figured that she would do more than growl pretty soon. I was right. After her shower, she got the ferrule paddle and told me to get into position. I asked her if this was going to be more than a five minute spanking. She said no, five minutes was enough.
It was. We have very different perspectives on that particular spanking. Mrs. Lion felt that she gave me fewer swats because she was watching the clock. I think she had the feeling the need to time my punishment is a distraction. When she mentioned that, I suggested she use our smart speaker to set a timer that would beep at her after five minutes. She didn’t think that would help. She said she was also trying to be careful about avoiding bleeding. Even though I am moisturizing every night, she can still draw blood with this paddle.
I noticed that she was applying attention to some new areas. She was spreading my lower cheeks and applying a very firm swats to the inside of my crack. In the past when she did this, it wasn’t too painful. This time, it hurt a lot. Part of the reason may be that she worked lower on my rear end. She was spreading down by the very beginning of my vertical smile. In any case, it was very effective.
I was making a lot of noise during the spanking. Some of the sounds approached sobbing, I think. I wasn’t trying to sob or scream, I was just reacting to what Mrs. Lion was doing to me. I like to be analytical about things. I suggested the five-minute spanking concept. I read about it on a domestic discipline blog. I think it was a bad suggestion. Mrs. Lion is perfectly capable of determining how long my punishment needs to be.
It seems to me that Mrs. Lion has caught some of my analytical nature. She shared with me that she was approaching what she did with specific objectives in mind. Spanking is not an expression of anger for Mrs. Lion. It’s part of the disciplinary process we’ve agreed on. She’s focusing on covering as much real estate as she can. She has a tendency to spank the outer areas of my bottom. The area near my crack is usually relatively untouched.
She took a picture after my spanking. We looked at it together. She believes the reason there are more marks on the outside of my butt is due to the fact that the edge of the paddle, not the face, makes the marks. When she hits near the center, a great deal of the force appears to be applied to the outer edges. I am publishing the picture so that you can see what I mean.
Even though this was very intense and painful, I wasn’t sore at all on Thursday. That’s the second objective Mrs. Lion is working on. She wants me to feel it when I sit the next day and maybe the day after that.
It may seem odd that we discuss my punishment in objective terms. I don’t believe this will continue too much longer. Right now, Mrs. Lion wants my feedback and input to help her perfect her spanking style. One of the positive benefits she gets out of spanking me is a sense of a job well done. Since she isn’t willing to be an emotional spanker (I don’t think it would hurt her to try that once in a while), she wants to be the most effective, thinking spanker she can be.
She considers a spanking effective if she marks me evenly with some bruising and it hurts me to sit for at least a day later. I think there is a second component that she hasn’t been very willing to consider: the effectiveness in modifying my behavior. This is trickier. It’s very difficult to objectively correlate my subsequent behavior with the actual punishment. I think she may be correct in that she doesn’t really need to do very much about this. If every time I do something I shouldn’t, I receive an effective, lioness spanking, I’m going to be getting more punishment because I keep repeating my sin. Consistent observation and punishment probably obviate the need for worrying about severity.
I’m learning that the best thing I can do is stop offering creative suggestions on how to punish me. Mrs. Lion will figure that out for herself. In fact, when we exchanged emails yesterday and I mentioned that I wasn’t feeling any aftereffects from her spanking, she wrote that it meant I needed more maintenance spanking’s to help her figure out what to do.
I always thought about maintenance spankings as something I needed to maintain my stability and feel my position. I now realize that Mrs. Lion needs them to perfect her technique. I think we both believed that once she got over her reluctance to swing hard, there wasn’t much else to be concerned about. Actually, once she learned to be objective about punishing me (not worry about how I felt about it), she would then open up a new world of developing her own punishment technique.
Traditional spankings provided by mothers to naughty children evolved as the mommies got more experience disciplining their errant offspring. I’m pretty sure they thought about what techniques work best for them. Many had the opportunity of first-hand experience being spanked by their parents.
Without the benefit of that, Mrs. Lion needs to take a much more objective approach to spank me. I suppose she could evolve her technique using opportunities I create by being naughty. I get the feeling that doesn’t work for her. She wants to develop her technique so that when I do need punishment, it will be the most effective she can render.
You may recall that last year Mrs. Lion decided to do some “experiments” in spanking. These were near-daily spankings she administered in an attempt to perfect the intensity and technique of her punishments. It turned out that her experiments were substantially more severe than my actual punishments. This is still the case. Her experiments were 300 swats in duration. She wanted them to be equal so that she could gauge which paddles and which techniques were most effective. She was also figuring out how intense she could be before I try to escape.
At the same time, I was learning to stay in position for more severe paddling. We were both learning. After she decided to stop experimenting, her punishment spankings were rarely 300 swats and almost never as intense. Her experiments were designed not only to teach her but to push me to the edge as well. I don’t think she considers that when she punishes me.
It may be that her new round of maintenance spankings will allow her to synchronize the results of her experiments with the techniques she’s developed for punishing me. I’m also pretty sure that I will earn more punishments now that she is becoming comfortable correcting me for interrupting her, etc. Stay tuned.
