Simple and effective
Simple and effective
Sometimes on the back side
I’m not going away but blogging is becoming a bit of a grind right now and I have decided to take a three week break (unless something important crops up), normal posting should resume on Monday the 25th of April. I am not leaving the blog cold though, a series of mostly picture based posts will be left in scheduled posting, for your entertainment. The Sunday Swishing will be posted as normal and on other days of the week we will have The Monday Blues Busting Blistered Butt, Toy Focus Tuesday, The Wednesday Vanilla Giggle, “Spec”tacular Thursday, Friday Frilliness and The Saturday Cinema. Hopefully I will have a chance to think up some interesting posts while I am resting.
I was going to report the problem with the disappearance of SpankoLife today but checking into the site this morning I found it to be live and well. I am not sure what happened but for those that frequent this site the news is good.
Thanks to Richard Windsor, who passed on this information in this post New London Tanners Site and Samantha Woodley. The London Tanner has moved not only countries but also continents and is no longer based in the USA but now in England. There is a nice shiny new website available to view, that can be seen through this link The London Tanners.
I have to take my hat off to the inventive mind that made these kinky machines, including some for spanking, from everyday household items. The effectiveness of some of them might be questionable but every new invention starts with a prototype.
This is the closest modern equivalent that I have seen of those British army cat o’ nine tails, that you see in the old illustrations. Notice the long handle and the knotted ends to the tails. It is not just the cat that I would like to try, it is the whole ceremony. The battalion paraded on three sides of a square with the triangle and punishment detail forming the fourth side. There is only two things that I would like to change from the original scenario. 1/The real cats would have their tips hardened to deliberately draw blood and cause life long scaring, I would not like life long scaring, so no hardened tips thank you. 2/ The punishment was usually delivered by male drummers of the regiment, I would prefer female drummers but still in the period uniform 🙂
Tied to the triangle the drums rolling as two drummer girls deliver the 300 lashes and an officer keeps count, as the whole battalion watches. The thought of it makes my spine tingle.
