In this Excerpt, Aubrey receives a spanking…

I’d not yet used a paddle–or any other instrument besides my hand-on Aubrey but tonight seemed appropriate. This was a punishment and she didn’t deserve the reassurance of my skin against hers. I knew that Aubrey enjoyed my spankings so it was important to distinguish the types of spankings I gave.
I returned and tapped the plug before speaking, “This is a spanking paddle. Isn’t it beautiful?” I held the black leather paddle I’d bought for her in front of her face so she could see it.
She shivered and responded perfectly. “Yes sir.” Her voice was a beautiful whisper.
I ran the paddle along her jaw, tracing from ear to ear, and watched her inhale its scent. Shit, that was hot. I wanted to see her do that again, to watch as her chest pulled in and then out again. “Smell it. It’s like ambrosia, don’t you think so?”
The scent reminded me of Aubrey, of the times we’d spend in these intimate settings. Combined with the tamer scent of the ropes and the earthy scent of her arousal, the leather wove itself into a bouquet that rocked my world. It was the rich scent of sexual ambrosia and I was salivating to increase the fragrance.
“No sir,” she answered. Well, at least this time she was being honest.
“I suppose you can’t appreciate its beauty right now.” I inhaled the fragrant leather again before I placed the paddle to her lips. “Kiss it and accept your punishment.” This had become our standard protocol for punishments. It was important to me that she accepted the punishment so we could use it as resolution and then move forward.
When she followed my command, the caress of her pink lips on the leather sent a jolt of white hot heat through my body. I adjusted myself and gave myself an internal pep talk. My release would come but first, this needed to be dealt with.
“Tell me why you’re being punished.”
“To remind me not to run when I get scared.”
“Right. This punishment will be harsher than you’ve experienced before because your offense was worse. You ran from me, from us. You cannot run. I want you to think of this paddle on your flesh the next time you consider running.” I rubbed her ass with the paddle, drawing circles on each cheek as I continued. “But also know that when this punishment is done, all is forgiven. We move on and focus on our future.”

Which would you choose... bare hand or paddle?

  1. For the longest time, my answer would have been "hand" always, but my Master finally found a way to use a beater stick/paddle in a way that it works for the both of us :D

  2. Thanks for hosting me, Celeste.

    William's preference is to use his hand for spankings but he's learned that withholding his touch, even during a spanking, by using the paddle heightens the punishment because Aubrey craves his touch so desperately.

    What do others think? Bare-handed spanking or a Paddle?


I love getting feedback. Thank you for taking the time to comment!
