Pet peeve or just weird?

There are a lot of things in spanking photos that can drive me crazy........or at least prompt me to shake my head. I've covered some of them before, but today I'm gong to concentrate on one that I REALLY would love an answer to: what's up with those shoes on an otherwise naked spankee?

Look at these heels! Could the disciplinarian not just have waited the extra minute for these to be removed? But take a gander at the Top. She's not dressed in fetish or glam.....and yet check out those red pumps! Somebody on this shoot is into heels!

It's bad enough that standard porn shots do this all of the time, but spanking shots too? And it's not just the glam shots either. Even relatively average ladies in seemingly domestic settings engage in this:

I guess these boots were meant for spanking?

And it's not just a youth-thing! Mature victims keep those shoes on as well.......


Sometimes I think the photographers use shoes as a sort of 'partial costume' to remind the viewer "who" the victim is. A good example of this is the punished "schoolgirl". And here's a whole line-up:
On one hand, everyone wants to see those nubile cuties all nice and naked.....BUT we also have to keep that 'schoolgirl' image going, so what better way than to let them keep their uniform socks and shoes on? ( Don't those shoes just utterly convince you that these are girls in a school? LOL)

But shoes are not always a uniform or clue. So why are they there after everything else has been stripped off? And it doesn't matter who the spanker is. They can be male......

He probably couldn't figure out how to get them off.

....or female:
"Owww, but black goes with everything!"

Young......
"I'll know you've had enough when those fall off."

...or more maternal:

"Those are my pumps, young lady...........and I'm going to keep spanking you until you 
give them back to me!"

Hell, sometimes the spanker can even be in full 'Domme regalia' and their victim's shoes are still staying put:

This shot is a bit silly on more levels than just shoe-wearing.....but if you are shooting for 'ridiculous', you may as well add shoes (and socks) to the list.

But the best is when both spanker and spankee are naked....or nearly naked.....and those damned shoes are still on!

Shots like this just make me laugh!

So what is up with this? OK, it's not 100%......but as you can see, it's frequent enough to have to be intentional. Do people find this sexy? Do the models have ugly feet that need to be hidden? Did the model initially remove her shoes only to have everyone on the shoot think someone opened a bag of Dorito's? What the hell is it? I realize this is not a new thing:
This trend goes back a bit for sure. (And don't you just love the rifle stock visible in the upper right corner? You don't see that anymore. I guess she's lucky she's just being hand-spanked!)

Maybe it's the shoes themselves. I've always heard that women love shoes. Perhaps even naked women still can't resist shoes?

It seems that this young lady can't. 

The ONLY time you don't see shoes on an otherwise naked spankee, seems to be when that victim is male! And here I thought it was women who were more prone to wanting to go around barefoot?

Lady Marta: Disciplinarian

Two of my favorite ladies, Ladies Marta & Nickki, having some fun.

Various photos are still trickling in. I thought for sure someone snapped a shot of me getting swatted by "Lady Marta" in the stocks.....but Rosa told me that she doesn't think anyone caught that. However, yesterday I got this shot of Lady Marta giving Lady Nickki a nice swat! (I love both of their costumes too!)

Throughout the day, various guests always seem to find a way to get a few smacks from my neighbor. And when I plan out the Quest for the Holy Grail, the first "trial" is an archery task wherein a plastic apple must be shot off the head of William the Younger using up to 8 arrows. The team being tested must appoint both an archer and a "hostage" who is then imprisoned in the stocks. For every arrow that misses....Lady Marta delivers a swat to the hostage. If all 8 miss, she adds a penalty of an extra 4, a little harder than the first 8, for an even dozen. So at the very least, Marta gets to whack one member of each team a bit. 

There are other challenges and dares that sometimes result in a trip to Lady Marta's stocks as well. As for me? I announced at the beginning of the faire that since I had escaped Lady Marta last year, anyone could come up and ring a bell we have in the yard to give the go ahead for me to 'get it' from Lady Marta to make up for it. As soon as I said it, Rosa strode right up and rang the bell, and Lady Marta gleefully delivered several good swats......only she insisted on using the nasty wooden spoon with my name on it instead of the milder leather slapper!

I didn't get a lot of swats, but the ones she gave me definitely stung! Hopefully I'll get a shot from someone at some point showing Lady Marta dealing out her 'justice' to someone actually in the stocks. I know a lot of shots were taken of different guests at different times, but I don't know who has what. And in conclusion I wanted to add this year's shot of me and Lady Rosa:

Outdoor discipline

As I await a few more RenFaire photos, I thought it was about time to get back to some more DD-themed posts. Besides being associated in my mind with RenFaires, September has always reminded me of camping. I don't camp anymore due to my back and the fact that Rosa seems willing but not enthusiastic. Recently we went on a NJ trek of waterfalls and spent some time in Stokes Forest State Park, one of my favorite campgrounds. 

Rosa found it better than she thought and we discussed possibly trying a simple overnight to see how things go. 

One of the things I am used to from past relationships that I have not done with Rosa, is the outdoor spanking. When I was in my late 20's I used to joke that I had been spanked or switched in just about every campground in the state......and one in NY! It was actually rare to go camping and NOT end up with a striped butt. Episodes of this nature inspired this old drawing of mine:

This was actually a position I found myself  in a number of times.

One very memorable episode in my past was supposed to take place on a camping trip, but due to EVERYTHING going awry, the actual 'spanking' took place indoors after the trip ended. (You can read about that episode here. Just click.)

My fond memories of Stokes Forest were also the impetus and setting for my story, "The Woman of the Well" and this illustration which I drew especially for it:

This picture might make it look like the poor boy is the terrorized captive of some sadistic park ranger......but nothing could be further from the truth. Read it and see. 

"The Woman of the Well" (you can read it by clicking here) is one of my favorite stories and is pretty long. And if any of you out there are familiar with Stokes Forest, it won't take a lot of effort to realize the similarities....other than the house with the well...between the campground in the story and Stokes.

So do any of you have a juicy 'outdoor spanking' story to tell?

More Faire-ness

I'm still waiting for some pictures to come in from other sources.....especially the one of me getting whacked in the stocks by Lady Marta! But in the meantime, here are a few with 'people' in them:

Faces obscured, this is my daughter and her friend sitting around the table of castle blocks later in the evening. That's my drinking vessel in the right foreground.

My usurper brother...the Black Knight....pretender to the crown.

Lady Ana face-painting my niece....

...and preparing to duel atop the balance beam.

It's good to be the king! That's me.....flail on the rug at the ready should any challenge my rule.

Success!

Well the 2017 RenFaire has ended and other than some minor (and I mean minor ) hitches, it was a rousing success! I even managed to participate much more this year, rather than spend all of my 'party time' coordinating events. And, as promised, I got pictures this year. For the sake of this post, I will just share the shots of the unpopulated shire.....before guests arrived and partook of the various offerings. Here are a few highlights:

One overview of the entrance to the "Villa Alava".

Beneath the shaded arbor, a crest depicting Rosa's actual family crest coupled with my invented family crest, based on my last name.

Another crest.....that of my daughter.....and her husband.

Our museum of 'artifacts' from the neighboring and perpetually feuding shires of  Ochershire and Azurton.

The gaming area, for dueling in various forms!

The Royal Throne, crown, and scepter. But before sitting upon it, you must prove yourself worthy.....

....and pull forth the sword from the stone and anvil.

And for those in need of chastisement.....Lady Marta's Stocks. You can see her leather slapper hanging from the one side. (the axe is for very serious offences and fortunately has never had to be used. Makes a nice warning though.)

The Arthurian-themed cups of Grail tasks.

Our tennis ball-firing mangonel.

And our Torvald Drumpf effigy that one could do battle with and or otherwise abuse. (He is shown here post-party with the broken fragments of his chest plate about his feet.)

Besides Torvald, the only other participant who probably did not have a good time was poor William Tell the Younger.

In my next post I will show some of the events as they unfolded with our guests......(with some of the faces obscured for polite anonymity).

RenFaire Captions

While I can't invite my online readers to the upcoming RenFaire, I can let you in on some of the fun. One of the things we do is let guests write in captions for various 'period' images. One of the images I'm using this year is this:


It's too bad my ponds don't have any frogs around this year.

Anyway, even though I have a reputation for hating captions, that's not really true. (In fact I contribute to Hermione's weekly caption post almost every week) No, I just hate forced "everything has to be about kink" captions when a simpler and funnier one would be much more entertaining. So, if anyone would like to take a shot at our princess and frog, by all means show us what you got! Here's my contribution to start things off:

Princess: "You are cute and all...... but I just don't know."
Frog: "That's the trouble with being a frog. I can be 100% STD-free and you people still think they're going to get warts."

From Hands63:

Princess: "Kiss you, I don't think so"

Frog: "Come on babe, what have you got to lose. You know what they say, once you go frog, you'll read about it on everyone's blog

From Merry:

"PRINCESS: So thrilled to meeteth thou King Frog! What a large staff thou hast! How much dost 't groweth? 

FROG: Nearly as long and thick as a log, mine princess, and thou shalt squeal in delight at its strength! 


Who's next?

One more week!

Speaking of older photo files.....I came across this old RenFaire photo from 2 years ago:


Me and "Lady Rosa" of the Villa Alava, in our backyard. (Last year I wore something different that I will be using again this year. And to any Python fans: yes that is a ceramic rendition of the Terry Gilliam 'Holy Grail'.)

So as of today, the RenFaire  is one week away and my only concern at this point is one 'uncontrollable'......weather! This is not an event that can simply be moved indoors if it rains. But weather aside things have progressed nicely. The games have been concocted and the 2017 clues and dares printed and stashed away.

I will be setting up more of the yard as this week progresses.....and like I promised...THIS TIME I WILL TAKE PICTURES!
