I hope you enjoyed my version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas", even though technically it was consistently one day late. As I noted earlier, the first day of Christmas should have been Dec. 25, and I didn't start until Dec. 26. In the long run, I figured it wouldn't matter too much.
My thanks to those who kept coming back to see what the new day would bring. If you just lurked, read, and left--I'm glad you came here. If you left a comment--even better! The comments really help make any post that much more fun, in my opinion.
If you never heard of some of the items or implements I mentioned--good, look 'em up. A good source to check (not to mention a great source to buy from) is The London Tanners--

Now, some of you might be wondering, "Out of everything mentioned, how much does this guy actually have and use?" Okay, here's my moment of full disclosure--I have practically none of the things mentioned. I have a hand, of course, so the OTK handspanking on day one--that I can do. It may, in fact, be my favorite thing.
Butt plugs? Martinets? Fur-lined cuffs? Nope, don't own any of those.
A hairbrush I DO have, but it isn't from Mason Pearson.
Six of the best? Sorry, I don't own a cane. Truth to tell, I've never learned how to use one, and have never really been that interested in learning. I'm not a big fan of the cane.
Straps? Yes, I have a strap or two, mostly smaller versions that can be used OTK. Wooden spoons? Only to cook with. They're pretty lightweight, and I'm not sure they would pack much of a sting.
Floggers, Loopy Johnnys, ping-pong paddles--I've never used the first two, and the last one I've only used for ping-pong. I don't own any of them.
Finally, I do have corners available. Naughty girls, beware!
