"I wonder if any other lady readers make use of early bedtimes for their male charges? My less-significant other, Andrew, finds it to be a very salutary punishment - being at the same time both boring and childish. We have recently decided that he should retire from work and devote himself full-time to serving me. I am a financial consultant and of sufficient means to support us both comfortably. During the day, Andrew is now responsible for household chores, shopping, cleaning, and running errands. He is also quite talented in the kitchen and is therefore tasked to prepare meals too. I work mainly from home, so I am in the happy position of being able to supervise him quite closely.
Last week I had a dinner meeting with a client which was cancelled at the last moment. Returning home early, I caught little Andy with his feet up in front of the television and his own dinner plates still unwashed in the sink. Needless to say, after washing the offending items, he had a long and tearful encounter with my largest wooden spoon and was packed off to bed immediately. To reinforce the punishment, I also decreed that he will be sent to bed at exactly 7:00 pm for the next thirty days - unless I require his services beyond that time. I usually eat only a light dinner and like to take it early, so he can finish washing the dishes and be in his nightwear by 6:45. We have made a small barred cot in the spare room and he sleeps there when he is being punished. After visiting the bathroom he is tucked up in bed, the curtains are drawn and the lights switched off - and thus begins a long and boring night. I have also purchased a set of restraint gloves (I believe the Victorians called them "masturbator's mittens"). This are fitted over his hands and clipped to the side of the cot, which ensures that he does not try to alleviate the tedium by putting his hands inside his pants! He must also be careful not to drink too much before being put down because he will only be allowed out to visit the bathroom when I get up the next morning. So far we have only had one accident and I have not followed up my threat to put him in diapers - but he does now sleep on a rubber sheet which is rather uncomfortable. Still, if he is good, he will be allowed back in my bed when the punishment period expires. Until then he will just have to put up with being treated like the naughty little boy he is!"
Thank you very much Miss Amanda for a very interesting contribution. I look forward to further communications. The photo is from the Internet and not from Miss Amanda herself, but seemed rather appropriate to accompany her post.
