Hi all. I hope you had a great week. Mine was OK. Nothing special. Work remains slow, but the pipeline shows a few signs of opening up. I have my fingers crossed, as I really don't do well with these periods of inactivity. "Idle hands . . ." and all that.
I also can't say that the downtime has contributed to my creativity in coming up with topics. I finally gave up on thinking up anything new. A couple of weeks ago when we were in the midst of some, ahem, drama here at the Disciplinary Couples Club, ZM made a plea to focus on things that draw us together around this common interest in Domestic Discipline. At the top of his list was:
"How it started for you... Who initiated? Why? How?"
I somehow always have the impression that we cover this one frequently. But, looking back at the topic list, it's actually been a couple of years since we had a topic specifically focusing on how each of our Disciplinary Couples first got into this. So, let's do it again. Tell us your own origin story. How did you first get into it? If your current relationship is not your first in which Domestic Discipline played a big role, tell us about both how you originally got started, and how it began with your current partner.
Nope. She called me at the office the next day. After a few pleasantries, there was a pause, and she stated: “Well . . I visited that website.”
That was it. Interesting. "So . . . what does that mean . . ." I stammered.
Before the first spanking, we established a set of rules. First and foremost, she would control when and how hard I was spanked, period. While she would listen to my views, she would control the process at all times. Second, every spanking would be serious. She still was concerned that “play” spankings could reinforce bad behavior, so our spankings had to be "real" each and every time.
We graduated pretty quickly to wooden paddles and leather straps, and she graduated to a very proficient spanker surprisingly quickly.
Over the years of doing this blog, and several years before that in various DD groups, I've heard variations on this story many times. We husbands are so concerned about how to broach the topic of Domestic Discipline but once we do, the wives take up the paddle or strap with surprisingly little diffidence or reluctance and are soon spanking like a pro.
