OK, now I have (almost) stopped blushing after my last post I thought it was time to answer some more of your questions. I'm sorry it is taking me a while to get to all of the wonderful questions we have been asked and I hope you will bear with me.
If you could throw away one implement, what would it be?
One of our implements is a short plastic pole which is actually off the end of a cat toy lol. It hurts like the dickens and I imagine it would be very similar to a window blind tilt wand. I would be more than happy if I never saw it again!
Who would you want to play the role of you in a movie?
Oh gosh. I really don't know. I have no real idea why really but I'm thinking Naomi Watts or Gwyneth Paltrow.
Rick and I both love the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan combination in romantic movies such as Sleepless In Seattle and You got Mail though. So perhaps Meg :)
Quiet Sara asked,
what is your favorite act of submission for Rick?
I would have to say sitting at his feet at night while watching TV, listening to music etc while he rubs my back, plays with my hair while giving it the occasional tug (love that!). Kneeling in front of him while we talk or while he lectures me. I also love to serve him by doing little things for him like fixing his drink etc.
I guess that was more than one thing. See, I sometimes have trouble following instructions :)
What was your most memorable spanking?
There have been a number of spankings that have been memorable for different reasons and they have been different type of spankings also. Punishment, R/A, and even some 'play' spankings.
There are two that stick out for me. (Again, not following instructions :) I posted about these at the time because they were significant to me and I think milestones for us. They both happen to be punishment spankings.
The first is one occasion I visited my parents on my own. To drive to my parents place involves having to travel a notorious stretch of road. It is also a rule that when I go out I am to text when leaving and when I return home if Rick is not home when I leave/return so that he knows I am safe.
On this occasion I failed to contact Rick when I got home. To this day I can't explain why. It didn't help that the weather was somewhat inclement and it was evening. Rick was also away that night so would not know when I returned home, which made letting him know even more important to him. Having not heard from me he phoned after a while. I remember being so shocked at both the panic and relief in his voice.
The spanking which followed a few days later was the hardest I had received up to that point and it was also the first time he used a belt. It wasn't just the spanking itself though. The lecture he gave me was awful. He was extremely serious and I was crushed to realise how much I had worried him. This was the moment I truly discovered just how protective he had become.
I wear a vanilla collar (necklace). I am to wear it at all times, except when I go to bed and in the shower, unless I have permission not to wear it for any reason. It is a symbol of, and reminder of our relationship and our dynamic and holds huge emotional value to both of us. I love wearing it. It reminds me that I am his and he loves to see me wear it. I also love the fact that it can be seen by others, but only we know what it represents.
I forgot to put it on one morning in my rush. Yep, you guessed it. Spanking number two! Let me just say I have NEVER forgotten again since! It was another serious spanking and I discovered just how important the collar and what it represents is to him.
The above spankings were memorable because they were issues Rick felt very strongly about and that was when I realised just how seriously he took them. I was blown away. They were emotional and I think the lectures and the strong feeling of connection and intimacy during and after these punishments were perhaps more memorable than the spankings themselves.
Given the reasons for these spankings. They were a realisation for me and reinforced how much Rick loves and cares for me and his desire to protect me. While not pleasant at the time they each left me feeling totally loved and cared for.
Have yall ever visited a clothing optional beach, and if not would you want to?
Funnily enough, one of the beaches we visit during summer is a 'clothing optional' beach. However, it is a rather large beach and those who choose optional clothing tend to contain to a particular area ... which is well away from us lol.
It isn't something that appeals to either of us.
