Dressing The Part
Does dressing-up feature in your spanking activities? Just how important is presentation? Are jeans and a T-shirt sufficient, or should the participants dress especially for chastisement? Surely the important thing is the people, not their clothes? Why diminish an intense emotional encounter with pedantic caveats about apparel?
Fair points all, but perhaps there's more to spanking than just, er, spanking... ritual, rules, and quite often role-plays, may be intrinsic to the event. Acting out a convincing scenario of a wayward servant disciplined by an irate master can only but be enhanced by a maid's uniform. And the master's authority all the more plausible if he's wearing a suit not beach shorts. Many encounters (in spanking films if nowhere else) are ruined by sloppy blokes - apparently dressed from the washing basket - lacking any sense of occasion or respect for their partner. Arguably, the greater the effort the more memorable the experience.
So why do many people don special spanking garments? An unscientific trawl through the spanking net and its many forums yields a variety of reasons.
For many participants spanking involves an element of theatre and intrinsically the adoption of a particular persona. Regarding M/F interactions - for no other reason than they are what I know best - it's clear some folk like to immerse themselves in a fantasy scenario and an appropriate sartorial ensemble helps them enter character. As they put on the outfit so they become that person, their authoritative or submissive alter ego.
It may be a complete costume, traditional female subservient tropes seem to figure frequently, the secretary, the nurse, the maid - not strangely the doctor, Maitre d' or CEO - gosh but we're old-fashioned. Uniforms appear to be perpetually popular, in the US the cheerleader, in the UK the, careful, adult schoolgirl.
Others favour specific items of attire. Of late pyjamas (or 'PJs') seem on the ascendant. I can't see the attraction myself and there's often a (to my mind) disquieting association with easily misunderstood daddy/little girl dynamics but hey, different strokes etc...
Tight 'dangerous curves ahead' figure-hugging jeans don't float my boat either - but I can see the attraction and sliding them down must be akin to unwrapping a wonderful present.
I suspect the unwrapping element may also be the basis of the enjoyment of grown-up clothes; the slow, teasing lifting of her skirt to reveal the sensual secrets beneath.
Stockings and spanking complement each other like strawberries and cream. For older aficionados they may conjure an association with a time when spanking (more likely punishment than erotic) was commonplace. They're both pleasing to the eye and practical - it's so much easier to pull down a stocking-clad woman's panties than if she's wearing tights (pantyhose across the pond) although they too have enthusiasts and are said to be excellent at ensuring smacked bottom cheeks stay good and hot.
One online acquaintance wears high-heels to be spanked. "You'll usually find me in flats," she says, "at home and work, not least because I've never really mastered the art of walking in heels, but there's something delightfully naughty about putting them on for a bottom warming. The frisson of excitement at what's to follow, and the vanity of knowing they make my legs look pretty dam good."
Is a senior lawyer compromising her professional status by dressing as a secretary? "Of course not," says my own favourite lawyer and lifetime champion of gender equality. "It's a game, a release from responsibility and above all my choice." Judging by their writing, famous spankees, such as writer and filmmaker Pandora Blake, or editor and illustrator Paula Russell, appear to agree. So do 'Bogart and Bacall' at 'Our Bottoms Burn':
...a little spanking FUN? Plan a night out on the town, dressed to the nines, knowing there will be a red behind (or two) when you get home. Do something fancy...A conclusion similarly endorsed in a recent article advocating spanking in once radical now mainstream Cosmopolitan.
Dressing for a spanking clearly won't work for everyone, and there's a good argument to say the painstaking ritual of preparation kills spontaneity. Others claim a punitive spanking should be naked to emphasise embarrassment and humiliation. Conversely putting on glad rags helps ring the changes and for those of us fortunate enough to be in long term spanking relationships stops proceedings becoming (whisper it) boring.
To take the author's specific circumstances as an example: For some spanking is an impromptu event, an opportunity to be grasped when and wherever the mood strikes. For others spontaneity has to be planned in advance. Our domestic and caring arrangements dictate domestic discipline by prior appointment.
A time and date is designated. I pleasurably plan my modus operandi; my spankee apprehensively ponders her fate. The answer to the concern: "I don't know if I'll be in the mood on Sunday" is to consciously create the requisite state of mind, by preparation and anticipation, dressing for pleasure.
Sometimes my infinitely better half will receive a note with specific instructions on what to wear, alternatively she may be granted leave to exercise her imagination and surprise me. Spanking usually takes place at home but on memorable occasions she's had to rendezvous at a cafe, embarrassingly forced to discuss her forthcoming chastisement in public, or book into a chic hotel, where the room furniture was most inventively employed.
I take responsibility for organising and directing proceedings and wearing something to suit an authority figure. She follows a mutually-agreed set of rules: Makeup is de rigueur, not the usual day-to-day 'lippy' but delicately applied eye shadow and carefully chosen scent. Lingerie, not underwear, something carefully chosen by her, and paid for by me, is essential, complimented by sheer nylons, definitely nothing practical or everyday. High heels, to enhance her long legs and compliment a smart skirt and top or dress complete the look. Confidently complicit in her erotic submission my significant other doesn't believe her feminist principles to be compromised by emphasising her femininity; she simply looks and feels wonderful.
Finally I'll unveil the prize of that delightful derriere, lifting her skirt, applying my palm to cheeks nicely framed by stockings and suspenders, slowly pulling down her panties to bare her bottom. For both of us it's well worth dressing the part.
