Let Me Guess.....

I was just doing some random searches on Google when I found this picture.  I know nothing about it, don't know the story behind it, don't know what's going on here.  Since it's a free country, though, I thought I'd just take a guess as to the nature of the picture......something which is also known as, "Making stuff up".


(I like the picture, btw, and the expression on her face is wonderful.)

If I had to guess (and I do), I'd say that it's this young lady's birthday and, obviously, part of the celebration involved the tradition of a birthday spanking.  I think that everyone who gave her the necessary birthday swats then signed and dated the paddle that was used as part of a unique birthday present for her.

And, as the expression on her face shows, she is absolutely overcome with........uh......."joy".  Yeah, that's it....."joy".

I could be wrong, of course.  But that's my (made-up) story and I'm sticking to it.....

Well, This Sucks

This is not the way my Saturday was supposed to go.

An out-of-town lady that I had been corresponding with off-and-on for a while was actually going to be in the Twin Cities this weekend.  We had talked about getting together for a cup of coffee, get to know each other a little better, and if things went well, there might even have been a spanking in her future.

Yesterday--Friday--my supervisor at work came up to my and informed me that the workload had been running heavy the last few days, and they were drafting me to come in for overtime on Saturday, one of my off days, to help get them caught up.

Now, I have nothing against overtime.  I don't get nearly enough of it, and I could certainly use the extra money. But of all the times for it to happen, it had to be this Saturday? 

So, instead of my Saturday looking something like this.....


...I'm afraid it's actually going to look more like this.....


There are times when I realize it would be nice to be independently wealthy......

Hanky Spanky MN

Did you know that Minnesota has it's very own spanking group?



Hanky Spanky MN was started a few years back by a lovely Minnesota lady who attended a few spanking parties in Chicago and asked herself, "Why don't we have something like this back in the Land of 10,000 Lakes?  A group for spankers and spankees who want to play and explore their spanking interests in a safe, sane and consensual environment."  I often asked myself the same question but, unlike me, she did something about it and Hanky Spanky MN came into existence.

Hanky Spanky MN is an attempt to build a spanking community right here in the Twin Cities.  Whether you're a pure Spanko or whether spanking is just one of the many kinks you find interesting--whether you're a veteran of the spanking game or have just recently read a few popular books and are finding yourself intrigued by some of the Spanking passages--this is the place for you.  The group is all about spanking, period.  It's the only activity this group engages in.  Check your other kinky interests at the door.

The group is looked after by four moderators, two men and two women, so you should be able to find someone to talk to that you feel comfortable with..  I'm fortunate enough to currently be one of the Mods..  We have a munch--a non-play meet and mingle talkfest--on the 4th Tuesday of every month.  Please note that the fourth Tuesday of every month is not necessarily the last Tuesday of every month.  This month, for example, our next munch is next week, Oct. 23rd.  The munches are from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at a local restaurant.  We have a private room there so the conversation can be free-flowing and you can say the word, "spanking" without having to censor yourself or look around to see if anyone overheard you.  Some of the moderators are always in attendance,, so please feel free to introduce yourself to them, and they'll be more than happy to try and answer any questions you may have.  Plus, there'll be a room full of other people to meet and chat with.

Usually about halfway through the evening, the moderators will get up, say a few words of greeting, make any announcements they may have, and then give everyone a chance to introduce themselves.  Then it's back to food, fun and fellowship.  It's a warm and accepting group of people, and it's an excellent way to meet others who share that spanking interest.

In addition to the munches, we also have spanking play parties.  We usually try to have one of these about every other month, but that schedule can sometimes get thrown off.  The parties are usually hosted at someone's home, so the number of people that can attend is limited.  What we usually do when we announce a party is ask that those interested apply for an invitation.  Once we get the applications, the moderators try to make up a guest list.  We do our best to invite an equal number of men and women, and also try to keep the number of spankers and spankees equal, as well.  Notices will then be sent out to all the applicants letting them know if their application to the party has been accepted and inviting them  to attend.  If we get too many applications, some people will wind up on a "wait list".  They'll be notified of that status, as well.  Then, if there any openings due to unexpected cancellations, we will notify the appropriate number of people from the waiting list.

As mentioned, the parties are held at the homes of some of our members..  House rules and directions are also sent out at the same time as the invitations.  Everyone is asked to bring some food to share, and after that...well, how much fun you have is pretty much up to you.  These are play parties, so spanking is certainly going to take place.  Talk, get to know people, and who knows what might happen?  No one is under any obligation to play--if someone asks, "No, thank you" is a perfectly acceptable response.  On the other hand, it is a play party, after all.  There's plenty of willing laps and bottoms, so why not meet people, make some new friends, and indulge in a spanking....or two....or three?

You can find Hanky Spanky MN in one of two ways.  If you're on FetLife (fetlife.com), look for and join the Minnesota Spanking Group.  That's our presence on FetLife, and you can find announcements about the munches, parties and other information there.  Or you can jump right in and join our Yahoo group.  The Yahoo group is the main group.  You don't need to belong to the Yahoo group to attend a munch, but you do need to be a member to attend a party.  You also should have attended a munch and spoken to at least one of the moderators.  You can find us by signing into Yahoo and going to groups.yahoo.com/group/hankyspankymn.  One rule we do have for the Yahoo group,though:  No trolling.  The group is there to help us build that spanking community.  It's not a private playground for you to troll for dates and hook-ups.  Any posts of that nature will be taken down by the moderators, and you may be placed on a moderated status, limiting your access to the group.

When you subscribe to the group, if your age isn't listed in your Yahoo profile, be sure to add a comment stating your age.  At the very least let us know that you are over 18.

Minnesota spankos, unite!  It's time to make yourself known and explore your spanking interest.  Join Hanky Spanky MN today, and perhaps we'll see you at the Oct. 23rd munch.  Details about the munch are on FetLife and on the Yahoo group.

(Please note:  Hanky Spanky MN is a spanking group in Minnesota aimed at people who live in Minnesota or are frequent visitors here.  If you live in, oh, Carpel Tunnel, Nevada and never get up this way, then this probably is not the group for you.)

Rosaleen Young

You can blame this post on The Cherry Red Report.

It was a few posts ago when Dave--Mr. Cherry Red himself--did a short piece on Rosaleen Young, a bondage, fetish and spanking model of a few years back.  That piece, along with the photos he ran, reminded me of just how enticing she was.  Dark hair, often done in pigtails.  Expressive face, large eyes.  A lovely round bottom that may as well have had the words, "Spank me" tattooed across it.  Then add in her British accent.  It's easy to understand why, when she looked into the camera and said, "Please....spank my bottom", people who weren't even into spanking might start looking around for a hairbrush and a straight-backed chair.

Rosaleen retired after too short a time on the scene, or at least it seemed that way to me.  A lot of her work is still archived on the site, Spank My Bottom (spankmybottom.com).  Gone, but most definitely not forgotten.  She also left behind a book, Fantasies of a Young Submissive, which you can still order through Amazon.com.  It's also available on Kindle.

I told Dave that if I had a wish list, the top two items on it would be that the artist known as Endart was still making his fabulous spanking drawings, and that Rosaleen Young was still making spanking videos and photo sets.  (Winning the lottery, oddly enough, comes third on that list.  Some day I might have to re-think that....)

I'll end this post with some photos of Rosaleen.  The last three, of course, are the way we remember her best:

The Best Look

This occurred to me a few months back:

It doesn't matter how you cover it, wrap it, or adorn it;

It doesn't matter how much or how little material you use for it, what the cut and style is, or the choice of color or pattern;

And it certainly doesn't matter if you accessorize it, or over-accessorize it.

You can do any or all of those things, but my opinion remains unchanged--




No matter what you do, in my opinion a woman's bottom looks best like this--

:
Whether it's slightly pink, red, or a sort of dusky rose--now that's a look that's sexy as hell......
