Recently Dan has been having a good discussion going about consistency and striving for whatever we all want our DD arrangement to be. And while I am only human and have these same goals, I have found they never quite work out like we would wish them to...or more accurately....expect them to.
Take the Christmas Slip punishment as a real life example. If you scroll back you can read how everyone was totally on board with this. Ana pronounced a devastating number, I sent Rosa a personal note (approved by Ana) and Rosa was in total agreement with her daughter about my culpability. So naturally things just sped right off after that and I got multiple installments on sequential days making my punishment almost unendurable just as everyone seemed to want, right? Nope.
It took a long time for Rosa to be in the right frame of mind to begin and several days passed with the slip sitting on our dresser, but when she did, she did so with a nasty 400 in one round!
A terrible shot of the aftermath!
I tried again to capture the color....which if seen in person or in a mirror was spectacular.....but to no avail. I will be discussing this photo issue in another post.
I was so sore the next day, I dreaded round 2. But I had nothing to fear. One thing after another delayed the second installment until I was pretty much recovered.....which while beneficial for me personally....was not the intention behind a 2000 spank punishment.
A couple of days later, Rosa made up for the delay with two separate installments of 300 each! Still nasty, but not as bad as if I had gotten them the next day. I related the developments to Ana, since this was her punishment, and she said that she was actually okay with the delay as long as the spankings themselves were appropriately punitive....which they were.
After the 600 spank session, Rosa did order another installment the next day, and as expected, it was unbearable! So much so that I could not help wriggling like an eel on a ship deck and no amount of reprimand or personal effort could stop my reactions. Rosa even asked me outright about the excessive flailing and I just told her how it felt to get spanked on top of a pretty sore bottom. She understood and continued for a bit, but I think she was unhappy about having a nearly 200 pound tuna flopping on her lap and consequently ended the spanking after 150.......which is rare for us.
Then several days passed again before I got another 400. And oddly enough, when I got the last 450 the following day, for some reason I was able to handle it without the fuss I had made previously.
I really think taking a hard punishment spanking is partly physical but also very psychological. If I am in a certain frame of mind, I find I can take a hard punishment better than a moderate one if I am in the wrong frame of mind. Anyway, that ended the Christmas punishment.
We also began the long overdue year-end slips, but have a ways to go on that.....and as described above, life is just firmly dedicated to interfering.
