Amanda, from UK, sent a long and interesting letter on the subject of domestic discipline and punishment in her household:-
“I am a firm believer in old-fashioned methods when it comes to maintaining order in our household and my husband Andrew, who is 12 year my junior, is in no doubt about who is in charge. I punish only when it is merited, but if discipline is required I do not hesitate to deliver it. Although Andy’s behaviour has improved considerably since our marriage, he still finds himself over my knee for a long, hard spanking or bare-bottom over his little punishment stool for a good strapping at least once every few weeks.
For serious infractions, I will inform him that we are going to have one of our “punishment weekends”. He dreads these the most and does his very best to avoid collecting sufficient demerits to warrant one. On these occasions, his punishment will begin when he arrives home from work on Friday evening and will continue until Sunday night.
He usually gets back from the office around six thirty in the evening and he will be sent immediately to change into one of his “punishment outfits”. I keep a selection of items which are designed to make him feel childish or embarrassed, and which help to remind him that he is no longer being treated as an adult but, rather, as a naughty little boy who is going to be disciplined. His punishment wardrobe includes tight little shorts, a baby outfit, a schoolgirl’s pinafore, pantyhose, frilly knickers and so on. I will decide what combination of these he will wear and he absolutely hates all of them! I do find however that it helps to strip away all of his mannish arrogance and macho pride, so it is a contrite and red-faced little man who comes down to greet me in the living room after getting dressed.
Once he is suitably attired, it is time for him to take his pants down and bend over his punishment stool for a good hard strapping which inevitably leaves him howling and pleading. Then its off to the corner for thirty minutes before being sent off to bed in the spare room without supper at seven thirty sharp. The rest of the weekend is spent carrying out chores and cleaning around the house. When these are completed, the remainder of his punishment time is spent writing essays or lines, copying texts from various women’s magazines, or simply standing or kneeling in the corner. He is spanked on his already tender bottom or thighs whenever required throughout the day and without fail before bedtime, which remains at seven thirty – or earlier if need be. As you can imagine, by the time Monday morning comes around, he is very glad to change back into his work clothes and return to the adult world as a better behaved and extremely contrite young man.
I should stress that we are both deeply in love and have a relationship which neither of us would change for anything in the world. Our lifestyle is obviously not for everyone and we are sharing it only for the enjoyment of your readers and not as something which should be judged. We greatly enjoy reading your interesting blog and the excellent artwork which you present. Please keep up the good work!”
I would like to thank Amanda for a very long and interesting letter (the above is only an excerpt). I was particularly interested in the use of punishment outfits to remove male pride. This is a topic which has been mentioned by other female dominants as a way of getting an otherwise arrogant male into a more “submissive headspace” and I shall be interested to hear other views or comments on the subject. The above photo was not sent by Amanda but serves to illustrate the letter! Anyone else care to share? I would especially like to hear from our lady readers. (We know what most of you naughty boys think! ).
