Kavanaugh said it best – the advice and consent of the Senate has been turned into search and destroy.

The hearings had nothing to do with sexual assault. The core reason for being of the Democratic Party is to preserve the right to abortion. The Dems feel Kavanaugh threatens that “right” and they will destroy anyone they fear could take it away.

This stain is permanent, not just on the Dem’s, the Senate, but the Constitution and the nation. It will not be washed away. 

Thoroughly despicable behavior. 

Edit : To vote against Judge Kavanaugh is to reject his certain, clear and unequivocal denial that this event ever happened. The logical implication of a “no” vote is that a man with a flawless record of public service lied not only to the public but to his wife, his children and his community.  As Sen. Lindsey Graham said: “If you vote ‘no,’ you are legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics.”

My Fav Toys

Most of these has already been posted on Hermoine’s, but I wanted to include it here for the “permanent record” (1). We have posted pictures of our toys several times, but the lineup evolves.

Here’s Bacall’s current lineup.

The small holey paddle is my all time favorite which Bogey made for me, followed by the leather paddle. One side is sensual and the other side is very stingy. It was given to us by a dear friend that is no longer with us. I think he only wanted the sensual side used on me. Bogey thinks it’s the stingy side that he wanted to be used. I like the long thin Teacher’s paddle when I am in the right frame of mind. The red paddle is the one I like when I think I am bulletproof. 

In addition to paddles, I  have a few more things that I love. We have two floggers made of very soft deerskin.  I don’t think anything is more sensual than having the floggers used across my bare skin.

The thing that came as a shock for me was a batten on the inside of my thighs.  That is a turn on and I would never have expected it.  If I am told that I will get the batten the next day, it flits through my brain all day in anticipation of what is to come.  I guess my brain takes over and I feel only excitement.

If you are really bored, click on ‘Paddles’ in the right margin. It’s about 8 lines down. There you can see every post we ever made about paddles.

If you are not quite that bored here are three posts about our toys from years past.

Spanked In The Shower

This post is by a regular reader who made a Lexan paddle and built a shower to be paddled in. [Yeah, my bad for ending in a preposition, so spank me. I know prepositions, but pronouns, give me a break. I slept through that month of sixth grade English]

Rambling sorry, this is Jim’s account. And please note his fine tile work as well as the handcrafted paddle.

We finally christened our new shower and tried out the Lexan paddle several weekends ago. We were at a family reunion two weeks ago and spent Labor Day weekend on a very hot sailboat cruising the Bay with W’s brother and sister-in-law.  No visits to our Bay house for the last two weeks.
There is a bit of background which needs to be understood.  The master bathroom with the “playground” shower and the master bathroom are located on the first floor.  The bathroom is completed and the bedroom is currently under renovation – paint, crown molding, new flooring, and trim. We are sleeping in the 2nd-floor guest bedroom which is very sparsely furnished with just a bed, chair and footstool.
Three Saturdays ago, I propositioned Wendy over a dinner of steamed crabs and she quickly accepted.
The lighting in the new bathroom can be bright and functional or dimmed to the level of candlelight.  In anticipation of evening activities, after we had quit working on the bedroom for the day, I had adjusted the lighting in both the master bedroom and the bathroom to candlelight level and stashed the new Lexan paddle out of sight on top of the pony wall which forms one side of the shower.
We retired to the guest bedroom and undressed with a bit of rubbing, squeezing and smooching, then slipped downstairs to the shower.  Encountered a bit of a surprise when we discovered I had installed the cartridge in the shower valve backward and the hot/cold was reversed – minor problem, readily fixable and certainly was not going to hold up any of our activities.
Water temperature adjusted and in we went for a bit of soaping and playing with the hand shower pointed at various places that found the pulsing jet very stimulating – did you know that Delta hand showers have multiple settings? Very useful…….
Wendy already knew that I wanted to be spanked and I suggested that we start in the shower and finish upstairs.  She asked, “What? Do you want me to just use my hand or have you got something waterproof?” and I produced the Lexan paddle from the top of the wall – she just shook her head and commented that I had too many paddles.
I bent over, leaned against the wall and she applied the Lexan paddle to my wet fanny.  Either she was going very easy or the reputed enhanced sting of a paddle on a wet bottom is exaggerated – in any event it was fun and definitely got us both “in the mood” for more spanking and other activities.
Out of the shower, toweled off and slipped back upstairs where the footstool was waiting with two proven wood paddles at the ready.  She pointed to the stool and commanded, “pick a paddle and bend over”; Wendy  proceeded to apply both paddles with gusto to my now red-hot fanny.
Seemingly worn out from her efforts, she collapsed onto the bed and became an active participant in various other, more gentle, activities.   At one point she commented on how warm my fanny was – I told her that meant she had done a really good job!
Wendy must have enjoyed herself since she has already “scheduled” a return engagement for this Friday night after a neighborhood party.  Anticipation is always good!

Great Sex

“There are a number of mechanical devices which increase sexual arousal, particularly in women. Chief among these is the Mercedes-Benz SL500.”
Lynn Lavner

“It isn’t premarital sex if you have no intention of getting married.”
George Burns

“Women might be able to fake orgasms. But men can fake a whole relationship.”
Sharon Stone 

“Clinton lied. A man might forget where he parks his car or where he lives, but he never forgets oral sex, no matter how bad it is.” 
Barbara Bush (Former US First Lady)  
“There’s very little advice in men’s magazines, because men think, ‘I know what I’m doing Just show me somebody naked!”
Jerry Seinfeld 

You don’t appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day by a middle-aged woman. Stuff you pay good money for later in life.

No Goody Two Shoes

In two recent Sunday Brunches, our views have been in the minority. Heck, it seems we are always in the minority spanking-wise. We are switches that switch with each other. We both embrace the fun and sexual components of spanking and never the discipline/punishment side.

What jumped out at me in the responses was that most strongly felt that spanking was something that could only be done with an exclusive partner.

Hotels and motels would be out of business if all sex was with exclusive partners. But, I am to believe that spanking only with a third party is more of a taboo than sex?

We have great respect for the monogamous, for their depth of commitment, for the work and courage necessary to pull off a conscious decision to remain monogamous. We are sexually monogamous ourselves. Monogamy is normal, but not natural. It is the cultural norm, with centuries of assumptions and confirmation bias backing it up, and it may seem like sacrilege to say that it is unnatural, but then again it was once sacrilege to say that the earth revolved around the sun instead of the other way around.

Two things set us apart.

We have no issue with nudity. We have been to nudist resorts, neighborhood hot tub parties, hot springs etc. Being nude is natural to us. 

Second, we are not jealous. We lean into the poly camp. We think intimate relationships with others is healthy. We don’t think that such relationships have to include sex. Yes, sharing with another your most private feelings, being nude, spanking, cuddling, even sleeping together does not in our world mean we are not fully committed to the other.
