Two Roundups – New Blogs For The Roll – And The Modern Image Of The Anti Smoking Lobby


Two Roundups a week for a while

——

As there is a lot to do, to get this blog the way that I want it and putting update addendas on normal posts is irritating me, there will be two Roundups a week until construction work is finished.

——

New Blogs for the Blog Roll

——

Although I have not finished transferring blogs from the old blog rolls yet, I have recently become aware of some blogs that I want on my blog rolls here and so have decided to add them  now.

——

Blossom and Thorn

A very interesting mixed blog from a spanko couple, Season and Michael.

——

Spanking4Men

A new venture from Dave of The Cherry Red Report, it features men on the receiving end from both men and women.

——

Raven Red

A mixture of images writings an musing from a female spankee in South Africa

——

CONSENSUAL SPANKING

A photo biased blog, that I am enjoying more and more every time I visit

——

The anti smoking lobby

——

I have always regarded myself as a responsible smoker, respecting the rights for non smokers to have areas where they are free of secondary smoke and supporting measures to reduce the pressures on the young to take up smoking. But in Western Europe all reasonable measures for for these ends have already been taken and the anti smoking lobby has become home to the undesirable and bigoted elements of society who just want to find a group of people that they can persecute. These xenophobic types, unfortunately, are degrading the image of what should be a justified and worthy cause, that of reducing the numbers of smokers in society (which even as a smoker I support). I would like to give up smoking but as I do not wish to share in the image that the non smoking community has at the moment, I find that it is unwise to even try to be a non smoker, UNTIL THE PERSECUTION STOPS.

HOW THE ANTI SMOKING LOBBY LOOKS TO REASONABLE PEOPLE NOW


To all the non smokers and anti smokers (and I include myself as an anti smoker, especially where the young are concerned) who support reasonable and justifiable actions to discourage smoking be aware that the Xenophobes that have infiltrated our ranks are making us all look like the character above. it is up to us to separate the reasonable from the persecutors.

>Some Things That Pro Tops And Dommes Should Be Aware Of (Part Two)

>Please do not think that I am on an anti professional Top/Domme, from these posts, I am not. On the contrary. The majority of interactions that I have had with those that provide these services have been very positive and I would recommend to any bottom or sub that they should consider employing the services of a competent, professional Top or Domme, especially if they are new to being on the receiving end. But I have had a few qualms and niggles over the years and when I saw THIS POST from Cassie Hunter, which I thought was a very pertinent reflection on what a potential client should not do, it did inspire me to write some points of what a pro Domme or Top should be aware of, when dealing with me as a potential client. These posts is addressed to the professionals out there but I hope that the rest of you enjoy them too. The first part was posted on Monday.

No I can’t come earlier, at short notice


And I can’t do morning appointments either. I am not being funny about this, it is just a matter of hygiene. I have never mastered the art of doing a quick colonic irrigation (and yes I have tried several different methods and equipment) and it takes me at least three hours, so I need to plan for that time. I do not want to turn up for an appointment with skid marks and I have a feeling that no Top or Domme would want me to turn up with skid marks either. So if you need to move the appointment to an earlier time of the day, I need at least a days notice, thank you very much.

Wish Lists? Get real!


You know, I have never asked for a discount or a freebie for services spanking and I never will. But realize that the going rate for services does represent a serious chunk of my budget (I’m just a working guy after all) and I am not complaining or whining about this but after shelling out a significant amount of my hard earned, I do not expect to have a begging bowl shoved under my nose. I know that some ladies do cater for financial slaves, keep your wish lists for them, I am not interested. If you want expensive presents write to Farther Christmas (Santa Clause), don’t bother me about it.

Relevant Charging


Actually I have no practical bad experiences of this at all. I have not employed the services of a pro Top or Domme for about a year but at that time prices in Belgium ranged from about €120 per hour to about €200 per hour, the difference mostly being based on facilities available. If I wished for a bare bones whupping from someone with just a usable space and few serviceable toys I would expect to be paying towards the lower rate and if I wanted to see someone with a nice range of specialist furniture and enough toys to give me that “kid in a sweet (candy) shop” feeling I expect to be paying towards the upper end of that range and in practice I have found this to be what has happened. So on this one I can say well done ladies, carry on.

I do hope that this post and it’s predecessor have not put anyone off seeing a professional, that was not the intention. These posts where intended to let a little steam out of my ears and hopefully let some of the professionals out there know the opinion of one bottom, where it comes to niggles and irritations. There are many good Tops, Dommes and Mistresses out there and I do intend to continue to seek out their services in the future.

I’m not a Sub, I AM A BOTTOM!

LIVE WITH IT!

I act submissively in play only. When playing you can call me all the names under the sun and expect me to follow your orders damn quick or else (please do, I love it) but up until the second that play starts and after play ends, treat me with the same courtesy and respect that you expect me to show to you. There is nothing wrong with Dommes that deal with subs only but if this is you, make it clear in your advertising or early correspondence and then I will not waste your time and you will not waste mine, because I will know that I am not the kind of client that you are seeking. If you don’t know the difference between a bottom and a sub you are not knowledgeable enough to be charging for your services, go away and do your homework. If your one of these types (happily they seem to be very few and far between) who do not believe in the existence of bottoms and say that there are only subs, then your are a fool and an idiot and are not trustworthy enough to be let loose with toys on anyone’s hide.

NO! I am not going to redesign or maintain your bloody garden for free, whist I am there


I am a professional Horticulturalist and a very well qualified and experienced one at that, who is also bloody good at what I do. Horticulture is how I make my money, if I start giving my services away for free I will not be able to make enough money to pay for your services. I am however open to the suggestion of exchanging my skills for yours but remember I am seriously good at what I do and the exchange rate is not three working days of my time for one hour of yours (as one misguided lady suggested) but ONE HOUR OF MY TIME FOR ONE HOUR OF YOURS! And considering that nine times out of ten, I am likely to be a more experienced hortic than you are a Top/Domme, then you will be getting a bit of a bargain at that rate. I will never ask you for a discount or a freebie, for your professional services, so do not ask the same for my professional services.

Don’t show a false face


DON’T! just don’t even consider it. Never claim anything in correspondence that will not be so when we meet face to face, thinking that this is an acceptable thing to do. IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE AND NEVER WILL BE! It would not expect you to find this acceptable if I did it to you, so do not even consider doing it to me.

Part 2 on Wednesday

>SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM, A Little Rant

>Happy April Fools day to you all. Rack my brain as much as I did I could not come up with a suitable jape for today and any way it is past midday here, as I write this and it is bad luck to pull a joke now. So instead I thought that I would send out a little tongue in cheek message to spammers. You never know, perhaps now they will stop emailing me.

Satisfy her with a bigger Dong


Well it’s not huge but I am quite happy with the size of my penis, thank you very much. And by the way I am not going to take medical advice about a part of me, that I hold (fnar, fnar) so dearly, from people who refer to it as “your love pole”, “trouser snake”, “pleasure staff”, etc, etc. If anything, a larger tongue would come in more handy, for pleasuring the fairer sex but if you have a medical technique for enlarging this please don’t call it a “mouth monster” or “labia licker” or anything like that.

You have won a Million in Toy…

Honestly, do you really think that I am thick enough to think that I have won a lottery that I have not entered or that major companies randomly give away money over the internet for no reason? And anyway these companies have their own internet domains and would not ask me to send my bank details to an address that ends in hotmail.com.

Do you want larger breasts?

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! and NO!

Dear Mr Hortic, there has been an unfortunate……….


Strangely enough my real name is not Mr Hortic or Mr Prefectdt or Mr Dt, so those poor people who died in that car/plane/train crash, leaving that huge amount of money in your bank, that do have those surnames are not actually related to me. Even if they were I have a surviving parent and older siblings, that would inherit before me if there was no will.

Viagra by post


I have never had need of this drug and if I ever do then I can get it across the counter without a prescription in Belgium (that must have helped the Belgian tourist industry).

Well now that all the spammers know all that they can stop wasting their time emailing me.
I WISH!

>F/m producers, naming and shaming two

>

An apology to Mistress Andi Switch

Before I start the rest of this post I would like to offer an apology to MISTRESS SWITCH for some comments that I made on This Post on her blog . Although I believe that the points that I raised are valid, the way in which I raised them was not acceptable and where a result of my own bad judgment in writing in anger and not waiting until I had calmed down. I was not singling out Mistress Switch in anyway, I was just reading her blog when I lost my temper, an action that I feel was wrong and am truly sorry for.

Naming and shaming

Some of you who have been reading this blog for some time may remember how I vented my disgust at the state of affairs of the F/m spanking video production industry in this post Sexism in F/m Video Production – A Damn Good Rant. Since when I have been trying to do my little bit for the cause, in a positive way, by finding and reviewing production sites that offer renumeration to their male bottoms and subs, so that responsible customers know where they can spend their money with a clear conscience, the good sites will be in a section at the end of this post. I feel this is a failed effort, after finding many many hours to search, examine and email F/m sites I have only found three spanking sites that will pay their guys.

Although I would rather follow a more positive path in my small part in this campaign (I truly would), it has become obvious to me that the only way that I can raise awareness is by being negative and so this is what I am forced to do. So this time instead of just rewriting the same rant I am going to name two companies that I believe are not paying the men that are working as bottoms/subs for them. If the situation has changed with these companies, I would be pleased and interested in learning about it.

The Vixens group

Although they have since withdrawn the open statement that male models are not paid, I have heard no change to their policies. I invite you to compare the two advertisements that they have for models on their different sites. The first is from two of their F/m sites, Vixen Ladies and Hard Spanking Vixens, the second from their M/f F/f site Spanked Cheeks. I have highlighted the important difference in yellow.

Wanted: Male Models!

If you would like to put yourself forward as a possible model for video or photo shoots, and you can truly say that you would be willing to take a good hard spanking with hand, hairbrush & paddles plus a minimum of 36 strokes with the cane from our Vixen Ladies then e-mail us with your details plus a photo of yourself so that we can see what you look like. Are you man enough to take the punishment you know you deserve?

Wanted: Female Models!

If you would like to put yourself forward as a possible model for video or photo shoots, and you can truly say that you would be willing to take a good spanking with hand, hairbrush, paddles and touch your toes for the cane then please e-mail us with your details plus a photo of yourself so that we can see what you look like. We offer good rates of pay.

Readers opinions are most welcome.

Real Spanking Institute’s, Women Spanking Men

This site I regard as one of the worst offenders and they have some of the most distasteful conditions for their male participants. Below are some of the things that put in their advert section for male performers, which I believe many of you would find unacceptable.

Expect to sign a release and provide identification. Federal record keeping laws require us to obtain proof of age and a signed model release from everyone participating in a session. Although a session can be filmed without your face being shown or your name being used, you will sign the appropriate forms. Expect that if you want to remain anonymous, you will.

well that is a statement that the male involved will be signing a model release form and that they will be participating in a spanking shoot and not a “Free spanking session” as they stated in their advert.

Expect to travel to our studio in Denver, Colorado at your own expense. We do not charge for our services and we do not cover travel expenses for you to participate in our sessions. Please consider this when applying for a punishment.

Yep, they are not even prepared to pay travel costs, instead of a modeling fee, the male model will definitely be out of pocket, unless he lives in walking or cycling distance.

Expect to be here less than one hour. We do not film extensive role playing scenarios. Expect to come in, bend over and have your ass blistered by a beautiful woman.

Yes well I think that one speaks for itself as for the attitude they have to the guys who appear for them.

I will not join

Not only their F/m sites but any sites that they run. The only way to stop this unreasonable attitude is to make it unprofitable. I would question the attitude of anyone who would join these sites or any like them, knowing how they are ripping off the guys who are working for them and how they are insulting their members by offering them material made under these conditions.

The Good Guys and Gals

There are spanking sites that pay their guys and the three that I have found are, Full Force productions (at least they where paying their lads I hope they still are), Clare Fonda’s spanking site group and Shadow Lane. I have reviewed Clare Spanks Men and The Montrose Academy but Have not joined Shadow Lane because I think it might be more effective to buy one of their DVDs and review that, as they seem to specialize more in DVD production. On a good note I have been contacted and informed that a major BDSM producer, that used to use volunteers, have changed their policy and now pay their guys for F/m productions. As a spanko I do not know how good I will be at reviewing a BDSM site but next month, I will be joining and reviewing this site.

Do you know of any F/m producers who do or definitely do not pay their guys?

Please tell me. Either way, I am very interested in learning of both types.

>G20 Arrest And Prosecute The Thugs – Feedburner – A Film And The Censors – Hungarian Lashings – Amy Hunter Accident – Happy Easter

>
There is lots of news going on around the blogs this week so, after an article about a little change to this blog, the rest of this post will be pointers to what’s going down.

Feedburner

I have been informed that the easiest way for non English speaking blog readers to read English blogs is to sign up to Google’s Feedburner Reader, where the subscribers blogs of choice can be translated directly into the language of their choice. It is also a useful tool for those that wish blogs to be delivered directly to their homepage or email. Feedburner links have been added to the side bar under the followers widget.

Unprovoked violence by thugs

As we have seen with the CAAN protests, it is necessary for our community to have it’s voice heard through peaceful protest. The right to peaceful protest is an essential right in any country that is a genuine democracy. This right has been compromised in the UK. Despite the unreasonable spin put on the events by many UK based press agencies, the truth about events at the G20 protests is emerging. Pandora Blake, who lives in London, has posted about this in this article G20 Meltdown, I strongly recommend that you read this article and follow it’s links. Anyone who turns a peaceful protest into a violent and destructive and violent action should be arrested, prosecuted and chastised under the due process of law, whether they be protesters, such as those who attacked the buildings of the Royal Bank of Scotland or Police Officers taking actions of unprovoked violence and thuggery. For further information I recommend that you read this article of events from The Guardian The G20 protesters’ that includes accounts of a journalist, who had his arm broken by Police officer and a couple (a man and a woman), who where surrounded by Police officers and beaten whilst they were seated on the ground and holding their hands in the air, in the internationally recognized gesture of surrender. Also this video YouTube – G20, which is an at the time report from Tom Brake MP who attended the protests as an independent legal observer, on behalf of the British parliament. A uniform should not be a license to beat up people exercising their democratic right to take part in a peaceful action, Police officers who participated in such actions are criminals, they should be arrested and prosecuted under due legal process.

Niki Flynn film denied a rating by censors

The film NF713, BY Michael Stamp, China Hamilton and Niki Flynn has been refused a rating by British censors. You can find out more about this in the following links, British film board rejects ‘disturbing’ sexual torture film • The Register, The People vs. Niki Flynn, and
I Am Not a Number. The information being shared about this is a very enlightening lesson in how the censorship system in the UK works.

Ludwig’s Hungarian adventure concludes

Part IV of the Hostel Trilogy: Communion – The last part of the account of the making of a Mood picture has been posted. The entire series of posts makes the most interesting reading.

Amy Hunter in motorway accident

Amy Hunter has been involved in, what sounds like, a very bad car accident. luckily it looks like she has not suffered any long lasting injuries. You can read her own account of events in this post Hmm.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to one and all. The staff at Spankedhortic hope that you get what you have asked for from the Easter Bunny.
