Bottoms Up - Hermione

Thanks for joining me for another 'Bottoms Up'

This week we have one from our friend and fellow blogger Hermione

My favourite implement, hands down, is the rose paddle handmade by John at Leatherthorne. 

It's beautifully made and the rose gives it an elegant touch. It's a handy size and easy to pack for travelling. It is also a traditional implement; its shape immediately comes to mind when I hear the word "paddle". But best of all is the way it feels on my skin. It packs a wallop but isn't severe, and the sound it makes when it connects is pleasing for both of us. The picture is yours, not mine, but isn't it nice that we both have such good taste in paddles?

My least favourite (and I have several of those to choose from) is the red loop. 

It really cuts, and is quite nasty unless used very carefully and gently (is that even possible?) It doesn't come out too often, and when it does it must be when the neighbours are out, as I am very vocal when it's used.

Thank you Hermione. Oh yes the Rose paddle is definitely my favourite as well.  I don't think John makes them anymore. I don't like the look of your red loop. You are very brave.

Don't forget, if any bottoms, male or female who would like to do a review of their least (or favourite) implement (you don't have to have a blog) and why, please email me I'll keep it secret if it's just for me but if it's OK for me to post it please say so. Pictures are always good.

See you next Wednesday for another 'Bottoms Up'.

Spankless Task

I haven't been spanked for more than a week and it's no good. I've had spanking droughts before but this one is getting to me because I've been charged with some tasks by my husband and told I must get them done, he's relying on me to provide my womanly opinion and those of friends and acquaintances on the subject of cosmetics.

Now all women know about cosmetics, we build our knowledge over the years and it becomes second nature but try analysing all you've learned and going through products individually and explaining them to a man. What's good, what's bad, which companies lie, what does and doesn't work, what makes me buy or consider buying a new product, all sorts of things he wants to know. And not just from me because he accepts that different users may get a different experience from the same product.

P wants to know all this stuff because his age old China partner and friend have an opportunity to cooperate with a nascent Korean cosmetics company which would like to get into Europe via the UK. They are young but vibrant and Korea has a good reputation in that sector of personal care, which P thinks might be ripe for disruption. God the stuff he gets into.

Anyway I'm doing my bit as best I can but every time I ask someone about it they want to talk about it over coffee or tea or a beer and it's time consuming and P isn't interested in the chit chat (but he should be) all he wants is my collective findings neatly summarised and explained in a way that a man can understand. Now he's quite serious about this and I'm taking it seriously too, I've even enlisted the help of my hairdresser whose salon does beauty treatments too, but it means I'm being basically good and constructive and not getting into the sort of situations which get me spanked, well not so far.

I suppose I could ask for a reward spanking at the end of it but he doesn't generally go for that sort of thing. I can't foul up because it might become important, well it already is or he wouldn't have asked me to help and in any case I like that he has. Perhaps I could have a beer too many with one of my friends, or pretend to have done, and use stress relief as my excuse. Then he could administer a dose of his own stress relief, the best sort I know. Or maybe I'll submit a couple of lunch bills to him and ask for expenses:)

We'll see. But so far it's an interesting but spankless task and this woman wants both.

Have a good week.

On Old Meme

I did this meme a while back, and as I haven't a delicious spanking to write about, I decided to do it again. Some of my happy things have changed. Originally spotted on Anna and Hermione's blog.

54 things that make me happy.....

Bottoms Up - Simon

Welcome to another 'Bottom Up'

This week it's Simon's turn.

My favourite implement is the cane, 

I love the sound it makes both on the way to the target (usually my bare bottom) and when it lands. I love the sting and the marks it leaves and the fact that I can feel its effect for some time afterwards. 

I really dislike the wooden spoon but I couldn't say exactly why.

And for a more unusual punishment there's something about a carpet beater which I like.

Thank you Simon.  I'm with you on the cane.  We both didn't like the carpet beater.

Don't forget, if any bottoms, male or female who would like to do a review of their least (or favourite) implement (you don't have to have a blog) and why, please email me I'll keep it secret if it's just for me but if it's OK for me to post it please say so. Pictures are always good.

See you next Wednesday for another 'Bottoms Up'.


Let me know if any of the pictures are yours.
