Some of you may have seen a slightly different version of this week's post. Blogger was doing some funky things with the fonts, and I couldn't figure out how to fix it, so I'm starting over. I guess I can't gripe too much about a free tool.
As I said in the first version, I'm having another kind of uninspired week. I think DD and FLR relationships, at least ones that are a work in progress (and aren't they all), all have their ebbs and flows. We are kind of in an ebb right now. Life is very busy for both of us. I always travel a lot for business, and she also has been traveling a bit lately. That always seems to impose a real headwind. I also feel like I hit a saturation point on DD in general a few days ago. Not practicing it, but thinking about it, blogging about it, engaging with trolls trying to post stupid, repetitive fantasies about it. Honestly, I just sort of lost interest. Today started that way. I thought about taking a break, but decided to try to switch it up instead.
But, this week's topic is not about "switching" per se. It's really the flipside of some of the discussions we've had about origins. We've talked about whether the Disciplined Husbands in the group were spanked as kids and what influence that may have had on their interest in DD later in life. Something we have not talked about, however, is whether our Disciplinary Wives were spanked as kids, or whether they witnessed spankings in the home, and whether those early experiences had any impact on their later interest in, or at least openness to, adult discipline and FLR.
So, ladies, how about it?
Were you yourself subject to some maternal discipline at home?
What impact do you think these early spanking experiences had on your openness to giving a disciplinary spanking as an adult? And, let's expand a bit beyond spanking. How did the disciplinary environment you grew up in, whether including spanking or not, influence your interest in or openness to Domestic Discipline or Female Leadership?
I am glad that I did decide to blog this week instead of taking a break. As I went through the exercise, I felt the interest level rising a bit. Some of it may be the visuals involved. I sometimes struggle to find good drawings that illustrate a particular topic, but that is partially because there is such a dearth of good F/m art out there that depicts any real male vulnerability, fear, remorse, etc. The ability to illustrate a topic with some good art opens up substantially if it involves females on the receiving end of the paddle.
I hope you all have a great week. As always, if you are new to this Forum, please stop by our Guestbook (see tab above) and tell us all a little about yourself and your DD or FLR relationship or aspirations.
