HOW TO BUILD A SPANKING CHAPEL – OR A GREAT ROOM THAT WAS AT THE CHÂTEAUX OF THE PRINCE’S OF CHIMAY

The Surprising Little Church At The Châteaux In Chimay

Whilst on my recent travels, there was an opportunity to visit the princely castle of Chimay. Which is in a beautiful little town in Wallonia of the same name, famous for its beer, cheese and being the last non-royal principality of Belgium. The castle was gutted by fire in 1935, losing much of its Baroque furniture and interior decoration. Over the last few decades, some rooms have been restored to their former glory, including…

The Chapel

Which is a very pretty place for Catholic worship. But the more that I looked around, the more that images like…

This

Started to flash into my imagination. It became clear to me that, some hundreds of years ago, someone had said, to a baroque interior designer, “Build Me A Spanking Church”.

The Prayer Kneelers

The first of these, that I noticed, were these

Excellent for kneeling on to receive a back flogging or bending over the other way for a holy birching. Just a nice height for either of these activities and comfortably padded…

Unlike Some Others That I have Seen

But when I turned around…

There Were Some Even Better Ones

That were far more sturdy, solid and unlikely to move around during a severe punishment of a sinner, under the torment of a holy lash. And even more…

One For Chastising A Pair Of Sinners At The Same Time

And then I noticed the general seating of the chapel which were just the right size, height and shape to be…

Padded Birching Benches

Which could easily be used…

Like This

Or This

I suppose you have to have a spankos mindset to see what the designer had in mind, when furnishing this Chapel. But there are some spiritual spankos out there who need a friendly place to pray and play, sometimes. Perhaps this is the place for them.

NEW LAWS FOR SEX WORKERS IN BELGIUM

Finally The Law has Changed

The Belgian National Parliament, agreed on new laws for those involved in sex work in Belgium, on the 17th of March and they became active on the 1st of June 2022.

Why Do I Care About This

I do not pay for, what I consider, sexual services but I do on occasions employ the skills of professional Dommes and Disciplinarians and they come under the classification of sex workers. Some of them do offer sexual services, I do not seek that part of their services, they are offered but are not compulsory. Many only offer BDSM services.

The Situation Before

It was technically legal to participate in paid for sexual services in Belgium, both for the provider and the client. However, this law was overly simple and has a clause to stop a third party from profiting from this transaction. This was designed to penalize pimps and people traffickers and I agree with their activities being restricted or hopefully stopped. BUT, and it is a big but, this law was badly written and can be interpreted that anyone taking money earned from sex work can be prosecuted. For example, if a sex worker uses his or her hard-earned cash to buy a loaf of bread, then the bakery that sells that bread can be prosecuted for profiting from the earnings of sex work.

And Then There Were Protests

This left Belgian sex workers in a grey area of being neither officially employed nor unemployed or self-employed, although they are still expected to pay taxes on their earnings and I believe that most of them do. During the time of COVID-19 restrictions, most sex workers were unable to make a living, but were not entitled to government support and financial aid as other taxpayers were. This caused protests and highlighted the issue. And so finally a new set of laws was agreed and are now in place.

As Of 1st June 2022 The New Laws Are…

A law passed in March by the Belgian parliament came into force in June, allowing sex workers to live legally, decriminalizing their work, and awarding them rights in terms of status, social protection, and health, etc. These provisions were sought by federal Justice Minister Vincent Van Quickenborne, a Flemish liberal. They will make Belgium the first European country to adopt such measures, only the second in the world after New Zealand. In the future, sex workers (95% of whom are women) will have the same rights as other self-employed workers, including social security, unemployment, access to healthcare, maternity leave, etc. Additionally, all third parties who assist their work will no longer be prosecuted, except in cases of abnormal profit.

Until now, any banker, accountant, insurer, legal adviser or even web designer who “assisted” a sex worker could be considered the perpetrator of a crime, as were the owners of properties that sex workers used for their business. In the future, property owners will no longer be on the wrong side of the law, unless they make excessive profits by demanding higher rents than normal, as is frequently the case.

AND THAT IS THE NEW SITUATION IN BELGIUM

THE SUNDAY SWISHING – AND SPECTRUM IS YELLOW

That’s Why She Wanted All Those Twigs

Coronavirus Belgium Update

The numbers here are good and getting better. The health system coped well with the last wave of infections, which is mostly the less harmful Omicron version of the virus now. As a result, as of Monday, 7th of March 2022, restrictions are downgraded to, what is now called, level yellow. This means that as of Monday, nearly all restrictions will end, except for the wearing of face masks on public transport and in Hospitals and other medical facilities. More detail in the following links.

CODE YELLOW LEVEL RESTRICTIONS

I really hope that this is the beginning of the end, this time. But I can’t help getting that nagging feeling that we have been here before.

STORM EUNICE HITS THIS BLOG – AND SATURDAY’S SORE SEAT

Storm Eunice

The little Burg, where I live, was hit pretty hard by Storm Eunice, on Friday 18th of February and a lot of damage has occurred. As a consequence of this, I will be working this weekend. The weekend is when I find the time to gather weapons and ammo find material for the three main posts that I do for this blog every week. This will not be possible this week. So please excuse me if the posts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday are a bit more “Bare Bones” than usual. And now back to the regular Sore Seat.

THE SUNDAY SWISHING – AND THINGS THEY ARE A CHANGING

Raise The Sails And Spanker

First Coronavirus, Belgium Update Since Christmas

This is going to be short summaries of what is happening here, in the land of Waffles, Chocolate and Beer, with links for those that want more information. Remember that the numbers are for a country of around eleven and a half million souls.

What’s been happening since Christmas

We had a new (fourth) wave of infections since Christmas, initially fuelled by the Delta variant but which became superseded by the Omicron variant, which the press branded the fifth wave, but I did not see the fourth wave come down. So make up your own minds on the wave numbers. Infections got ridiculously high, but hospitalizations, ICU use and deaths remained manageable. Now the infection rates are plummeting and The last reproduction rate that I saw was 0.8

THE LATEST COVID-19 NUMBERS THAT I HAVE FOR BELGIUM

Rules relaxed

Belgium has gone onto a colour coded barometer system for restrictions and it was decided on Friday, 11th of February 2022 that from next Friday (18th February) we will have restrictions reduced from code Red to code Orange.

CODE ORANGE FROM NEXT FRIDAY

Jabs

The vaccination program proceeds exceptionally well, in Belgium, except for the Brussels region. By the time this post goes live, over 60 percent of Belgium’s total population will have received it’s 3rd (booster) jab, including myself. Rollout of the fourth jab has been launched.

FOURTH COVID-19 JAB AVAILABLE IN BELGIUM SOON

Entering Belgium just got easier

Rules for entering Belgium from abroad have been relaxed.

NEW RULES FOR GETTING INTO BELGIUM FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY

The French like me again

In the link that is provided, the article states that the rules were for those coming from the UK. This is inaccurate, the rules, in France, applied to all UK citizens, coming from anywhere, with the exception of those resident in France and drivers of lorries (trucks). Over the Christmas period, French authorities banned most UK citizens from entering France. A few weeks ago, this was relaxed to a negative PCR test being required to enter France. As of the 12th of February 2022, all of these restrictions have been dropped, as long as you can prove that you have been vaccinated.

BRITS CAN GO TO FRANCE AGAIN

Personally

I am willing, with all my might, that things stay on the up, like this. Travel back to the old country seems to be possible again and today I will be phoning members of my family and start planning a trip back to the UK, to see as many of them as possible, for the first time in over two years. I did cry real (happy) tears over this, when I first realized I might be able to go this time.

Stay safe and happy everyone
