On his excellent blog, Spanked Hortic II, Prefectdt posted a photo of a lovely submissive restrained to a whipping post, her backside showing evidence of a thorough thrashing. I commented that I loved everything about the photo except the fact that many of the lashes had wrapped around the poor girl’s buttocks all the way to her hip bones. Prefectdt replied in agreement with me. For the umpteenth time, I felt fulfilled by the connections we can make with one another through open communication. (I also know that Bonnie has a tutorial on this topic on My Bottom Smarts.)
Like Prefectdt, I’m seeing more and more photos like this, ones documenting poor form on the part of the Dom.
First, let me state that I’ve had the bottom portion of my backside struck, and ended up bruised both there and above that lower portion, way up high above each cheek. It can be like a wave reaction across the buttocks. I’m not talking about that phenomenon.
That may be what happened to this enthusiastic young lady featured in the video clip to the left.
I AM talking about what is pictured here! This sub has about five stripes above her ass crack; that’s just wrong!
If you, as the Top, are not practiced in the use of a particular implement, don’t use it in a session until you are adept!
While I’m on my soapbox, as a big bottomed girl, let me make one more point. Just because your sub has a big target area does NOT mean that you HAVE TO cover every square inch of her roundness! A spanking at the summit of each cheek, the sit spots, is best. Spanking lower, where the butt meets the thigh can be very effective. Smacks across the crack, so that it’s felt down into the crevice, into the privates, can be punishing and proven to be quite convincing.
I look upon bruises as a portrait painted in living flesh upon my soul. I absolutely love to have my bottom marked by my lover as his territory. But that bespeaks the trust I invest in him to aim carefully, to paint that picture inside the lines.
Thank you for listening to this TED talk!
