Adding Two Blogs – Adding A Page – And Celebration For Belgium

A blog for the Tumblr roll

What Bryan Likes is the Tumblr blog of Bryan from Bryan’s New Spanking Blog. It is being added to the Tumblr blog roll.

A blog for the Non Spanking And BDSM Blogs page

Pictures Of Vintage Americana is the vanilla photo blog of Richard Windsor and has some amazing historical photos of old USA. It is being added to the Non Spanking And BDSM Blogs page.

Vanilla photo page

When I started this blog it was supposed to be a mix of spanking and vanilla posts, as inspired by the blog of Amber “Pixie Wells. But my vanilla posts proved so unpopular that I hardly ever do them anymore and the vanilla blog that replaced these died a death, so  I will have added a Vanilla Images page to this blog, where the odd vanilla photo or two will be added occasionally. Take a look if you want or ignore it if you wish.

Happy Belgian Day

Well it was yesterday but the effort is there. To celebrate I thought it would be nice to post one of my favourite Belgian songs. This is from Plastic Bertrand, a strange French speaker from Brussels. I have not got a clue what this song is about but it has a great feel good factor.


Spanking Bench Found In Public Park

Monday was a public holiday in Belgium and I decided to go to the Zoute Markt in Kemmel, which is a once a year event, where vendors come from various parts of Belgium to promote and sell specialist baked goods and sweets (Candy). It was a hot day so I got an ice cream and headed for a break in the nice shady park that the village has. Here I found a nice kinky surprise….

A public spanking bench in the park

It even had diagrams for suggested positions, although I think only a small paddle or toy could be used in the diaper position, on this bench.

A little further on I came across another but far simpler piece of spanking furniture.

Again with suggested positions for use.

Then I returned to the Market and as I am supposed to be dieting now, purchased something that should earn me a spanking.

Beer and hop flavoured chocolates

An “Only in Belgium” product 🙂


Belgian Day Of Mourning

My apologies to those expecting the Thought For The Week, this feature will be posted as normal next week.

Due to events in Switzerland (information links at the end of the post, for those that need them) today has been declared a national day of mourning for Belgium, which is being observed on this blog

A minutes silence will be held at 11:00 am in Belgium (10:00 am GMT) for those who wish to participate

Travel warning for kinksters in Belgium

On Monday 30th of January there is a Belgium wide strike (in which I am taking part). It looks likely that most if not all of the rail network will be closed down and there will be increased road traffic. There will be a large protest in Brussels, which hopefully will be peaceful and not a stone throwing riot (with inflation as it is, stones are getting too expensive to throw away), but travel in and around Brussels will probably be very difficult. If you get caught in a jam there is a suggestion of how to pass the time in the illustration above.

Janus focus

It is a bit of a slow news week and I do like to have at least three items in the Roundup, so I thought that I would point to a couple of interesting posts that have been made about Janus, this week. The first is from MarQe ‘s Study and can be clicked to from here Roy Tersley; Janus Interview. The second is from Cherry Red Report and can be seen here Cherry Red Exclusive: The Top 10 Most Popular Janus Spanking Magazine Issues.

The perfect thing for a morning glory. Thanks to Laci Green | A sex positive web space for finding this.


Pole Of Shame

I’ve been passing by the subject of this post for a few years now but was inspired to do a post about it after seeing Public humiliations – historical inspiration on the blog Leia’s New Musings!. I see this particular historical item on a regular basis.

The schandpaal

More commonly referred to as a Strafpaal in spoken Flemish (it’s great here, you get to speak in Flemish but read and write in Dutch, just to make life interesting), the Dutch name literally translates as “Shame Pole”. It was the equivalent of The Stocks or Pillory, commonly used in historical times, in other countries.

Those to be punished would have a metal collar placed around their neck and then be attached to iron rings, by a short chain, set into the stone around the pole, for the purpose of public humiliation and pelting with rotten veg and various other nasty things.

The rings were set at such a hight as to be too high to allow the victim to kneel but too low for them to stand erect, thus leaving them in a muscle burning, stress position. As a usual sentence was between two and six hours, it can be imagined that this added greatly to the distress of those being punished.

There are multiple rings set into the stone, so that up to three miscreants could be dealt with at any one time.

There are also some accounts of this type of pole being used as whipping posts on some occasions but the main purpose of these facilities was to publicly show and shame petty criminals.

The images in this post were taken by myself and I am happy for anyone to use them for free but a link back to this blog is always welcome.


Back To School

Here in Belgium the kids go back to school on the 1st of September, no matter what day of the week it is (except Saturday and Sunday of coarse but that will change when I rule the world *evil grin*). This is a relief to many adults, myself included 🙂 so I thought that I would post some apt “Back to School” images.

School kit has changed a bit since my day

Some are reluctant about today

Some not so much

But even some adults dread it

But with the kids gone from the house……

some adults get their own back to school fun 🙂
