Rosie Jones Bites the Bullet

Hello! Welcome to my blog.

Now that's something I never thought I'd write. I've been reading in Blogland for around three years now, commenting here and there, writing some Fantasy Friday stories and even being a guest on the blogs of two good friends. But blogging myself? No way! Not on your nellie! I had the excuses ready - I didn't have time, I was much too busy and, anyway, my life is too uneventful to write about.



Have you ever had the feeling that resistance is futile? Oh, of course you have, silly question. Little by little, with patience, charm and much encouragement, my resistance was whittled away by a determined friend. I expect you can guess who. But what can I write? Where shall I start? The obvious answer is at the beginning, so here goes.

Spanking has always fascinated me; I think I was wired that way from birth. I can remember watching, goggle-eyed, as Miss Whitworth, the kindergarten teacher, applied a gym shoe to the seat of Ronnie Cox's grey shorts. That was in the 50s, when corporal punishment was commonplace and if you were spanked or caned at school you were likely to get another dose when your dad got home. I'm not speaking from experience, of course; I was an angel. I'm old enough to have watched the Bonanza episode where Ben Cartwright spanked a girl when it first aired. That fuelled many a fantasy, like a mini-series in my head, only the man of my dreams was Adam Cartwright, not his father. I was spanked playfully by a couple of boyfriends in my mid-teens and liked the way it made me feel. It wasn't until I was seventeen, when I was soundly spanked by an older boy, that I identified that feeling as a turn-on. Soon after that, Harry and I got together. We had met two years earlier but disliked each other on sight. Jupiter must have aligned with Mars or something later on because we fell madly in love. He was shocked when I asked him to spank me, totally repulsed by the idea. I persisted until, eventually, he forbade me from raising the subject ever again.

Fast forward 43 years to a bright January morning, the two of us entwined in a post-loving embrace. Harry eased away from me, reached into his bedside cabinet and pulled out a package that was to turn my world upside down. It contained a short, black, skating skirt and he told me, stumbling over his words, that if he ever saw me wearing it he would spank me. I was gobsmacked; that's an ugly word but it fits how I felt then. It turned out that a combination of the Fifty Shades phenomenon and Sheldon spanking Amy had opened his mind to the idea that spanking could be fun and he was willing to give it a try. But did I really want to? I'd stopped fantasising about it years ago and isn't there something, well, undignified about a sixty-something woman being upended over her husband's lap having her bottom smacked?

We tried role play the first time, naughty wife being chastised by loving husband. Harry delivered about twenty light smacks to my behind, with the ridiculous skirt flipped up round my waist, before moving me to the bed for other activities. The second time he spanked harder. I was like the cat that got the cream but Harry was concerned because I had a few light marks. That's how I found Blogland, using the Internet to find advice on how to spank without bruising. I told Harry the answer seemed to be a warm up spanking first; I didn't mention the blogs I had begun reading avidly.



I can't say Harry really enjoyed it but, once he accepted that spanking left no lasting effects, he soon gained confidence. Somewhere along the line we even acquired a paddle; leather of course, I had it on good authority that wood is no good. It's odd the way spanking can change a relationship. We had always been an affectionate couple but spanking added an extra layer of intimacy somehow and made us even closer. He learned surprisingly quickly to read me so well that he knew when I needed a spanking "just because."

Spanking was only for play, until a fun session to lift me out of a bad mood morphed into something more serious. We weren't sure what had happened but we both liked the result. That was the beginning of ttwd in our marriage.

And this is the end of my first post. Phew!



Thanks, M.

Rosie

  2. Welcome Rosie! It's always so exciting to read someone's story, thanks for taking the plunge and deciding to blog. It must be so exciting for you. I will definitely be back, I love to find kindred spirits where this spanking stuff is concerned, that's what makes this blogland so amazing! A great start!

    1. Blogland is a great place to find kindred spirits, spanking is rarely something you can discuss with real life friends. I felt at home long before I had the courage to make my first comment.
      Thank you for your kind comment.

  3. Gee was it something I said? I know it surely wasn't me alone, but I'm happy to have been one of the ones who encouraged you. I really thing you'll like blogging. It brings wonderful friends into your life and give you a place to sort through all the interesting feelings that come with TTWD. Many of us have similar stories and you are definitely among friends.

    1. PK, indeed you are one of those friends who have encouraged me to blog, since that day I summoned the nerve to press 'send' on a Fantasy Friday story. I think I'll enjoy blogging too but I still don't know what on Earth I'll find to say!

  4. Welcome - nice to have you here. Don't feel bad about 60 something, I'm 70 something and I'm here. As PK said, many of us started out just the same way.

    1. Leigh, thank you for the welcome. I think I stopped worrying about my dignity after the first smack! I know there are many ladies of a certain age in Blogland and that has been enormously comforting to me.

  8. WELCOME to Blogland, Rosie!!! :)

    I love your story about how you and Harry got started. I guess that it is all about the skirt? LOL! Seriously, how loving that your Harry, after all those years of hesitating, was able to get in the spanking groove. I know that it is not easy for the ones that love us the most to move to taking a hand to our bottoms. The discovery of such intimacy after many years, can't be beat I think! What love!

    I'm so glad to see you here! Enjoy blogging! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

    1. Oh, Katie, that skirt was indecent! Anyone wearing it deserved a spanking, which was the point of it, of course. I still have it at the back of a drawer, it might come in useful if Harry runs out of reasons to spank. That's not likely to be any time soon, he has no problem taking his hand to my bottom nowadays!

  9. Rosie, what a lovely coming out story. It is special that it was Harry that finally found a way to make it OK to spank you.

    We have so enjoyed your writing in dibs and dabs up until now. Today is your big day, Rosie. Happy for you and happy for the rest of us.

    A Big Warm Welcome From Ella

    1. Ella, thank you for your Big Warm Welcome. I know it was badly written but I owe a lot to ELJ for writing Fifty Shades. You might like to know that Harry continues to be creative with his reasons to spank.

      Thank you for your kind comment on my writing, I only hope I can keep it up!

  10. Rosie... welcome to our neck of the woods. Here you will find many women offering a safe, welcoming and honest environment to share your thoughts. Starting to blog can be challanging but I really enjoyed hearing about your history and the fact that while initially Harry was not necessarily on board, he was willing to find a way to meet your needs and still be ok with the dynamic. Whether you have been doing this lifestyle a long time or a short time there is much to learn about one's self and your relationship. It definately brings you closer and what relationship couldn't benefit from that kind of connection right? I look forward to reading more.

    Enjoyed your story of how you both fell into spanking; it is strange but many couples seem to start TTWD the same way and about the same stage in life. Looking forward to many more posts

    2. Don, thank you for your welcome from Downunder. Harry has expressed regret that he refused for such a long time but I don't think it would have worked when we were younger.

      I hope your recovery is progressing well; I'm sure Mumski is looking after you.

  19. This is exactly where my husband and I are. Lots of implements and lots of fun. I'm wanting the full lifestyle, but he is not comfortable with the thought of disciplining me.
    For now, I'll settle for fun building my tolerance up! Lol!
