Israel and Palestine

I thought I'd write a post on my take on the Arab-Israeli conflict. I know, I know, what does a dumb blonde spanking blogger know about it? It's just that with the latest rocket attacks, and people seemingly split on the issue, I thought I'd read up on it and form my own views. Please correct me (politely!) in the comments where you think I'm getting something wrong or am factually off-base.

If you have no interest in politics whatsoever, a good read is the ongoing story exchange between Lion and I, both some maledom and some femdom for your entertainment pleasure - click on Sexy Story Exchange instead!

The region known as Palestine borders the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and is roughly the size of New Jersey. In pre-history it was one of the places civilization first grew up, emerging from tribes to agricultural communities, into city states. Jews and Arabs were one and the same. Myth has it that both tribes were the sons of the patriarch Abraham who lived in 2150 BCE. His son Isaac the Jews, and Ishmael the Arabs. They both believed that there was one and the same God.

The Palestine region changed political overlords many times. The sequence was,

  • Egyptians
  • Assyrians
  • Babylonians
  • Macedonias
  • Ptolemaians
  • Seleucids
  • Hasmonians
  • Romans
  • Byzantines
  • Early Muslims
  • Christian Crusaders
  • Mamluks
  • Ottoman Turks
  • Great Britain (administered under "The Mandate")
  • Israel

There may have been some sort of Jewish rule during the Egyptian period (the time of Solomon, David, and Saul), although there is little solid archaeological record, mostly Bible stories. The Hasmonian Jews did control Palestine for 100 years or so until the Romans moved in around 63 BCE (Jewish Hanukah commemorates Judas Macabeus re-taking of Jerusalem and the re-dedication of the Temple there in 164 BCE). Arabs controlled Palestine during the Early Muslim period for about 500 years.

From 1516 AD Leading up to the outbreak of WW1 in 1914 the region was controlled by the Muslim Ottoman Turks. Neither the Arabs, Jews, or Christians of the region got along particularly well with them. The Ottoman Turks sided with the German and Austro-Hungarian Empires in WWI and were defeated by the Allied forces of Great Britain, France, Russia, and eventually USA.

While the war was still raging in 1916, confident of victory, the Allies made a secret treaty between the UK and France, with agreement from Russia and Italy. The agreement would divide the Ottoman provinces outside the Arabian Peninsula into British and French control and influence. The British- and French-controlled countries were divided by the Sykes–Picot line. The region of Palestine was designated an "International Zone" mainly because of the religious importance of Jerusalem.

Soon after, the League of Nations (a precursor to the United Nations) declared a British Mandate over Palestine and the land to the East of the Jordan River (the "Transjordan").

During the war the British had made contradictory promises to Jews and Arabs to secure their support. Arabs were needed to secure the Suez canal and to keep the oil flowing. Jews were needed because of powerful lobbyist groups in the UK and America, and the UK desperately wanted an isolationist America to join the war effort.

Arabs were promised political control of Palestine, and Jews were promised a "national home" in the very public Balfour Declaration. The following was published in The London Times in 1917.

Both the Arabs and the Jews clamored for the British to make good on their promises to each of them, and jockeyed for position by forcing immigration and fighting amongst themselves. Britain cut off Jewish immigration into the Transjordan, reserving it for the Arabs and therefore excluding it from consideration as part of a potential "national home for the Jewish people", but continued to allow both Jewish and Arab immigration into Palestine.

"Zionism" was a movement for the re-establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine. It started in the 19th century in Europe. The first wave of Jewish immigration took place around 1890-1900 where an estimated 30,000 Jews immigrated to Turkish Palestine mainly from Eastern Europe and Yemen. These were mainly agriculturists. A second large wave of 40,000 came from Russia and Poland in 1904-1914. There were a lot of communist idealists amongst them and they established the communal kibbutz collectives. Several waves occurred after that leading up to WWII, during it, and immediately after.

In 1900 under the Turks, the population was about 600,000, more than 90% Arab. By 1948 towards the end of the British Mandate the population had grown to almost 2,000,000, 70% Arabs and 30% Jews. There was no displacement of Arabs during that time. Both the Arab and Jewish populations grew through immigration. In fact, the Arab population grew by over 1,000,000 while the Jewish population grew by 500,000.

The Zionists had an organization called the Jewish National Fund (JNF) that collected money internationally and funneled it into Palestine. They used the money to buy and occupy land, often very willingly at exorbitant prices from the rich Arab families. Their policy was to lease the lands they bought to Jewish settlements. JNF policy was that Jewish land, once acquired, could never be resold to Arabs nor opened for non-Jewish employment.

The JNF drained swamp lands, dug wells and built irrigation. By 2007, the JNF owned 13% of the total land in Israel. Since its inception and until now, the JNF planted over 240 million trees in Israel. It has also built 180 dams and reservoirs, developed 250,000 acres of land and established more than 1,000 parks.

The industriousness, education, and capital supplied by the Jews was a giant economic boon to the region that was otherwise languishing under the Arab feudal system. The huge influx of Arab immigration was partly due to the orderly British government, but also largely due to the economic opportunities made possible by comparatively rich Jewish settlement.

However, the Arabs remained politically hostile to any possibility of a Jewish state, and the hostility often broke out openly with Arab riots targeting Jews in 1920, 1928, and especially in 1936 with the Arab Revolt. According to a contemporary description from the 1928 riot,

The crowd reportedly shouted "Independence! Independence!" and "Palestine is our land, the Jews are our dogs!" Arab police joined in applause, and violence started. The local Arab population ransacked the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. The Torath Chaim Yeshiva was raided, and Torah scrolls were torn and thrown on the floor, and the building then set alight.  During the next three hours, 160 Jews were injured.

The Arabs became increasingly hostile as Jewish immigration continued. The British also tried to slow the immigration and backpedal on the Balfour Declaration to calm the situation amongst the Arabs. However, the Jews were upset at the perceived breaking of the promises contained in the Balfour Declaration and this promoted a certain militancy amongst them as well which eventually lead to Jewish terrorist attacks against the British in Palestine.

After the Arab Revolt of 1936, Britain established the Peel Royal Commission on the Palestinian situation. It proposed a two-state solution for Palestine where Jews would have political control over some parts of Palestine, and Arabs over other parts, as follows.

It made provisions for the gradual and voluntary movement of willing Arabs out of Jewish regions and Jewish people out of Arab regions.

The Jews were not at all happy with the solution, given their tiny allotment of land and limits on immigration, but ultimately accepted it as better than nothing. The Arabs however, were dead set against any Jewish state at all in Palestine, and outright rejected the plan. The Axis Powers of WWII, Germany and Italy, encouraged this attitude and the threat of Arabs joining the Axis was ever present. Moreover German policy was now firmly against a Jewish state believing it would create "an additional position of power under international law for international Jewry."

As a result of the pressure from the Arabs, Britain backpedaled on the partition plan in a 1939 white paper and severely curtailed Jewish immigration at a time when there were more and more refugees and Jews were being put into concentration camps. The white paper was heavily debated in England and was eventually itself narrowly repudiated, leaving the situation completely unsettled.

During WWII, which broke out Sep 1, 1939, the Arabs double-dealt on both sides but allied themselves more with the Axis powers. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, an Arab and the nominal head of Islam, living in exile in Turkey made a deal with Hitler and Mussolini that in exchange for Moslem support the Axis would recognize the sovereignty and independence of the Arab countries and promised Axis help in "the elimination of the Jewish National home in Palestine." Speaking in the name of God and the Prophet, the Mufti publicly urged Muslims everywhere to rise up against the Allies, though the request was not met with enthusiasm and no such mass uprising ever occurred. Meanwhile the Jews in Palestine remained loyal to the Allies (the other choice being the Nazis).

In the spring of 1940 the Chamberlain government in Britain was replaced by Churchill. Churchill welcomed the Palestinian Jews as allies and renewed promises for a Jewish homeland after the war.

During and after WWII there were millions of Jews murdered, had all their possessions stolen, and were displaced from Europe due to the fascists. Few countries wanted to take in that many Jewish refugees, especially as anti-Jewish sentiment was strong everywhere. The newly formed UN with strong support from the US and the UK put forth a resolution for the establishment of a Jewish State and the partitioning of Palestine.

Jerusalem would be kept under international control. The vote was 33 for, 13 against, and 10 abstentions. The Muslim countries voted against it, utterly rejected the plan, and promised to go to war if it were implemented.

Azzam Pasha, the General Secretary of the Arab League, told an Egyptian newspaper "Personally I hope the Jews do not force us into this war because it will be a war of elimination and it will be a dangerous massacre which history will record similarly to the Mongol massacre or the wars of the Crusades." Azzam told Alec Kirkbride "We will sweep them [the Jews] into the sea." Syrian president Shukri al-Quwatli told his people: "We shall eradicate Zionism."

Personally, I find this to be rather ugly of the Muslims in general and the Arab Muslims in particular. The Muslims controlled vast swathes of territory in the region.


All the green is now Muslim controlled territory, and the tiny red bit, literally the size of New Jersey, is what was given over to the Jews to administer as a national homeland, with provisions and assurances to deal fairly with an Arab minority population, and without even control of the heavily disputed Jerusalem which was to be left as an International UN Mandate.

The vote was ratified and the Arabs went on a war of extermination against the Jews in a combined offensive from the armies of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and the Arabs in Palestine in May of 1948.

The Jews had not been heavily armed before this point, and only had the arms they were able to smuggle in against the British. Moreover, the British in Palestine seemed more sympathetic to the Arabs and vacated their strongholds directly to the Arabs when they left. The Israelis were experienced warriors and tenacious, however, and the Arabs uncoordinated in their attacks allowing the Jews to deal with them one by one rather than all at once. This lead to a complete Israeli victory in 9 months which left them with more territory than they had originally been allotted.

The situation after the 1948 Arab-Isaeli war on the right

Leading up to and during the war there was a mass exodus of Arabs from the Israeli controlled areas of Palestine. Over 80% of an estimated 1,000,000 left the Israeli-controlled areas, and another 200,000 or so remained. Many left of their own steam fearing what was to come, and given that their leaders had all deserted them; and the Israeli's committed atrocities as well. However, many of the Arab villages and communities in Israel actively warred against the Israelis and could not be reasonably left alone and intact given the very limited Israeli resources at the time.

Nowadays the Arab exodus is referred to as the "al-Nakba" ("the catastrophe") and is portrayed as some sort of "ethnic cleansing" of the Arabs by the Israelis. Most of the references I found to the al-Nakba fail to mention the fact that the Arabs actively went to war and tried their hardest to eliminate the Jews completely from Palestine, which I find to be rather unbalanced. For example, from Aljazeera:

On that day, the State of Israel came into being. The creation of Israel was a violent process that entailed the forced expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homeland to establish a Jewish-majority state, as per the aspirations of the Zionist movement.

Hmmmmm... left something important out of that, no?

Many of the refugees went to the Gaza strip controlled by Egypt, and the West Bank controlled by Jordan. Rather than allowing them to freely immigrate into Egypt and Jordan, those countries kept many of the Palestinians penned up there in atrocious conditions in order to put pressure on Israel and to have a base of operations to launch future conflicts. This situation exists until today.

In the 1956 Suez Crisis, The new President of Egypt, Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal, taking it from France and Britain, and also kept the Straits of Tiran closed to vessels in and out of Israel. This forced Israel's hand and they went on the attack in the Sinai dessert, taking the straits and the canal from Egypt (along with French and British forces) and re-opening it. They eventually withdrew to their original border completely with UN assurances that the canal and straits would stay open.

in 1967, Israel reiterated its post-1956 position that the closure of the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping would be a cause for war. Egyptian President Nasser, however, announced that the Straits would be closed to Israeli vessels, and then mobilized Egyptian armed forces along the border with Israel, ejecting The United Nations forces, in conjunction with other Arab forces who did likewise, staging for an imminent attack.

Arab troop deployments before hostilities.

The above map shows how the Arab forces were aggressively deployed, after getting rid of the UN and closing the Suez canal and the Straits to Israel.

Israel preemptively struck Egypt, almost completely eliminating their air force. Then, having complete air dominance retook Gaza, the Sinai, the Suez canal, and the Straits of Tiran. Jordan then began an uncoordinated attack of its own from the West bank. Israel fought back and took that. Syria then attacked from the Golan heights in the North, and Israel fought back and took that as well. It only took six days in total.

Israeli counter-attacks

There is said to be a controversy over who "started" the Six-Day war. To me it was pretty clear the Arabs did by their aggressive military provocation and the blockade, but were caught by surprise when the Israelis threw the first punch.

Gradually over negotiated settlements in 1972, 1980, and 1982, Israel ceded back most of the land they took, but kept administrative control over Gaza, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights.


Israeli began putting settlements into Gaza and the West Bank which angered the Palestinians who fought back in the intifada, a series of suicide bombings and other terrorist activities lead by the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) under Yasser Arafat.

In 1994, with the Oslo Accords, much of the Gaza Strip (except for the settlement blocs and military areas) came under control of a new Palestinian Authority, led by Arafat. In September 1995, Israel and the PLO signed a second peace agreement extending the Palestinian Authority to most West Bank towns as well.

PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat (right)

Troubles continued however, and in 2005 Israel unilaterally and forcibly pulled Israeli settlers out of the Gaza Strip and declared an end to its military occupation of Gaza.

In 2006, Hamas won the elections in Gaza by a plurality of seats and then went to war against the secular Palestinian Authority party (Fatah). Hamas is an Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorist Organization closely aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood. They are anti-semitic, deny the Holocaust, and believe the Jews are a conspiracy to take over the world. On August 10, 2012, Ahmad Bahr, Deputy Speaker of the Hamas Parliament, stated in a sermon that aired on Al-Aqsa TV:

If the enemy sets foot on a single square inch of Islamic land, Jihad becomes an individual duty, incumbent on every Muslim, male or female. A woman may set out [on Jihad] without her husband's permission, and a servant without his master's permission. Why? In order to annihilate those Jews. ... O Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. O Allah, destroy the Americans and their supporters. O Allah, count them one by one, and kill them all, without leaving a single one.

That about sums up Hamas!

Periodically, in 2008, 2014, and 2018, Hamas launched attacks into Israel. This most recent attack of Hamas targeting Israel with over 4000 rockets is just the latest in a long series. Each time Hamas does it, they instigate it, and Gaza winds up the worse for it.

According to the Oslo Accords, Israel and the Palestine Authority share responsibility over the West Bank, dividing it into 3 zones.

AreaSecurityCivil Admin%land%Palestinians
A (Green)
Palestinian Palestinian 18% 55%
B (Dark Red)
Israeli Palestinian 21% 41%
C (Pink)
IsraeliIsraeli61%4%

Area C is much disputed. It was supposed to be gradually transitioned to the Palestinian Authority but that has not happened yet.  The status of Israeli settlements in the the West Bank is in dispute internationally.

The Golan Heights are claimed by Israel, and they're not moving as it is a militarily strategic position overlooking Israel. Trump recognized the Golan Heights as being part of Israel, and moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem which the Israelis have designated their capital city.

The Trump administration advanced the Abraham Accords which normalized relations between several Arab countries and Israel, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morroco, with other countries expected if the Biden administration can keep the peace process on track.

All in all, my take on it is that while both sides of the conflict are partially at fault (Israel with historical atrocities, over-aggressive policing, and continued settlements), the Hamas terrorist "government" in Gaza is a very bad actor, and the Arabs in general have been bad actors throughout the history of Israel, unwilling to compromise in the least or even give an inch while expressing strong anti-Jewish sentiments and the desire to completely eradicate Israel as their one and only goal.

The suffering of the Palestinian people, especially those in the Gaza Strip, should be placed squarely on the backs of their own Hamas terrorist leaders that even the Palestinian Authority disavow and went to war with.

A dumb blonde spanking blogger's two cents on it anyways. Your comments are welcome, as always.

Sexy Story Exchange

Lion over at Male Chastity Journal and I are friends. We read each other's blogs, correspond by email, and have helped to proofread and edit one-another's books (Julie's Spankings for me, and Fan Mail for him). Given that we know each other's kinks so well we decided it would be fun to customize some stories specifically designed to turn us both on.

He went first and wrote a subby julie story for me called BBQ at Mom's House in which, for bad behaviour, I received a bare-bottomed outdoors spanking in front of witnesses from my new Step Daddy.

I reciprocated and wrote him back a story imagining him coming to visit David and me at the cottage, locked in a cage but bearing a note with his spare key and a "hall pass" from Mrs. Lion. He wrote about it in his blog post Tell Me A (Sexy) Story And I’ll Tell You One which links to the story I wrote for him called Visiting Julie At Her Cottage.

Now, those who don't know me so well may ask why a subby story for supposedly Strict Julie?

While being on top turns me on greatly, and I demand and enjoy a good pussy licking afterwards, for some reason I never masturbate to Julie on Top thoughts. I too much enjoy the physical sensations and the reactions of my sub. That turns me on more than the thought of it, if you know what I mean? But it does inspire me to read/write/view Women on Top materials, just not masturbate to them.

However, it's the opposite for subby thoughts. I get turned on by the thought of them, and the actual physical carrying it out does less for me. When I do play in real life, I get so excited imaging it happening, and then soooo excited afterwards thinking back on it. I do get physically turned on right before a spanking: the baring, the scolding, the being placed across the knee; but given my preference for "disciplinary grade" spankings, I am anything but turned on during them! Then afterwards I am just in shock and recovery nursing a very sore bum bum and whatever else got punished.

Lion knows this about me, and therefore customized a subby julie story that hits all my hot buttons. I published the story in its entirety on my Fiction with Julie page linked top right. Before you go on and read about my reactions to Lion's story, which will contain all sorts of spoilers, you may wish to read the story in its entirety here:

BBQ at Mom's House


Did you read it? Sexy, no???? I am not ashamed to admit that I read it several times, masturbated to it, and orgasmed to it. I am so naughty! THIS time David did not catch me in the act so I was not spanked for that, but I know I still owe you a recounting of last time he did which I will do in an upcoming post.

It's a fairly short story, so I'll reproduce it here in its entirety in blue and give you my thoughts and reactions as I read it in red.

"Just because I just married your mother doesn’t mean you can run wild, young lady."

That was my mother’s new husband. My husband and I were visiting. I just stepped outside to enjoy an after-dinner joint. Phil, that’s his name, came out a few minutes later and found me smoking.

Ok, very nice setup. In just a few words it established that my Mom got remarried and while being a married woman and too old for it, I was clearly being a bit of a brat around him.

I looked at him defiantly, "You’re not my father. You have no right to talk to me like this."

Is there a little hope in there? A little hope that this Daddy will treat me the way I desperately need to be treated?

His face darkened. I felt a nervous twinge in my stomach.

"Put that out and come here!"

He moved to the porch steps and sat down. I put the joint out and stood in front of him.

Why did I do that? Obey him and go to him like that. It's realistic, and I would have done it in the situation. But why would I? I am naturally submissive to a certain alpha male authority. It's part of my womanhood. It's deep inside of me. And part of it is also my respect for parental authority that is also deep inside of me.

"Julie, I don’t care how old you are or how long I have been your stepfather. I expect respect and obedience. When I don’t get it, I will punish you."

Oh my gosh! Flutters! Yes, you married my Mom and you inherited me, her daughter, in the process. You have every right to expect respect and obedience. And he used the word "punish". It's something grownups do to children, right? How will he punish me???

Now my face got red. Who the hell is he to punish me! He is a big guy. My husband is six feet tall, and Phil is at least two inches taller and more muscular. Punish me?

"You want to punish me?"

"I am going to punish you! Come closer."

I was about three feet in front of him. I didn’t move.

Perhaps it's not conscious, but the alpha male needs to be tested by his women. He needs to prove his status. It may seem defiant, but it needs to be done otherwise he has no right to master us. It's a dance that we both must biologically play out.

He reached out and grabbed the waistband of my shorts. Before I fully understood what was happening, he pulled me toward him and yanked my shorts below my knees. He reached up, and my panties joined my shorts.

I was furious. "Stop!" I yelled. He just smiled. He reached, grabbed me around my waist, and moved me over his lap like a rag doll.

No no! This can't be happening! I tested him, and he passed his test. He both demonstrated his physical domination over me, and his willingness to use it. And what did he do? He bared me! No man has a right to bare a woman like that against her will. To put her across his powerful knee and bend her over. To put on display to him her bare buttocks and her genitals! By this action he is demonstrating that if he wished to, he could have me! But no. In this relationship he has bared me in order to teach me a lesson in the most childish manner possible: an over-the-knee bare bottomed spanking that will leave no doubt whatsoever who is in charge.

I could hear footsteps approaching from the house. The back door opened. It was my mom and David. They’ll put a stop to this!

"What’s going on?" my mom asked.

"Julie was smoking a joint and then gave me backtalk."

"Mom, stop him! I’m a grown woman! David, help!"

Neither moved. My mom said, "Julie, if your stepdad wants to punish you, then that’s what will happen. Phil, do you mind if David and I watch?"

"David, stop him!" I screeched.

"No, but I will watch."

My mom and David pulled up lawn chairs so they could have a good view. The setting sun and the bright porch light gave them a very clear view.

They agreed with him! They both agreed that Phil has full paternal authority over me. Moreover, they will watch as I am taught my lesson. It will evidently not be a quick lesson either, as they pulled up lawn chairs and sat expecting an extended spectacle.

Phil said, "Julie, I’m surprised at you. I guess being without a father for so long has helped you form some bad habits. That changes now!"

"My daddy never punished me! You can’t!"

Without another word, Phil clamped one arm across my back and, with the other, hit my rump with a resounding smack.

"OW! Damn you!" I cried.

I knew I was defeated, but the remnants of biology, of my needing to test his limits, unwisely continued. My cries that my bio-dad never punished me like this is heard as a cry for help, for something missing but desperately needed in my life.

Phil calmly said, "The neighbors are out barbecuing. Keep that up, and they’ll be over to see what we are up to. Do you want that, little girl?"

"Uh, no"

Ok, ok, ok. That will settle me. I absolutely do not want this to be more of a public spectacle than it already is. It's already embarrassing being spanked bare bum by Phil. He called me "little girl" - that is what I am to him, and that is how I'm being treated by him. Then even more embarrassing that my husband and my Mom will witness. But at least they are family. The thought of unrelated neighbors witnessing my little girl spanking is too much. I will behave in order to avoid that.

Phil resumed spanking me. Each swat stung and burned. I looked over and could see that mom and David were smiling. I was kicking my feet and exposing my pink pussy. It went on and on.

Lion knows it's a "hot spot" for me, the fact that my pussy comes so on display during my spankings. My real-life Mom and Dad have seen me spanked by my husband as an adult, and seen that view of me much to my infinite mortified embarrassment. For me it is part and parcel of a spanking punishment, for a girl to be so fully displayed like that during it. The very thought of it makes me so horny...

For a little while, I just grunted with each swat. Before long, it became too much for me, and I started to wail. I couldn’t help it.

Of course I could not help it. When a strong man with a hard hand is determined to make a girl cry across his knee, she will cry across his knee!

Phil was right. Doris and Ben, mom’s next-door neighbors, came over. Ben said, "What’s going on?"

Phil didn’t stop spanking me. My wails turned into cries.

Amidst the pain of my spanking, the embarrassment notches up a thousandfold! I was completely aware of the arrival of the neighbors, and could not control either my crying or my desperately kicking legs!

Ben asked, "What did she do."

Mom said, "Julie was naughty. She was smoking pot and then gave Phil back talk."

Ben laughed, "She’s getting some backtalk of her own now."

Men of a certain age know. Those men know that a naughty back-talking slip of a girl needs to be taught her place. Ben was even laughing at my predicament, and made a pun of Phil's hand "talking" to my "backside".

Tears were flowing now. "Please, Daddy. Please. I’ll be good, I promise."

Is this the most humiliating part? The fact that I had been so publicly broken like this? Broken like a bucking little filly. Thoroughly taught my place for all to see. Publicly acknowledging Phil taking his place at the head of the household as my "Daddy".

Phil stopped. "Have you learned your lesson, Julie?"

"Yes, sir." I don’t know where the "sir" came from, but it felt right to say.

"What do you think, Peggy? Has she learned?"

Mom said, "I suppose."

Myeh. I loved Lion's story, but to be totally honest, this was the one line I did not love. So grudging. Mom should have come back with either "Oh, she's definitely learned her lesson!" or "Let's make sure. Why don't you put her across the porch rail and giver her a taste of your belt, Phil."

I was still over daddy’s lap. "Julie, stand up and face everyone and tell them what you did and that you’re sorry."

"But, but, I’m naked."

"Do you want more spanking?"

"No, daddy."

Phil removed his arm. I slowly stood and faced everyone. I had my hands over my pussy.

"Hands at your sides," Phil commanded.

I obeyed. "I was smoking pot and backtalked daddy Phil. I’ll be a good girl from now on."

I added the last part myself.

Yes! Lion picked up on this sort of thing being one of my hot buttons. The public bare-pussy apology afterwards. I am completely hairless down there, like a little girl. My labia push out a bit, including my labia minora, and even my hood and clit a bit, and especially after blood is made to flow down there during a spanking. I hyperventilate at the thought of being made to expose myself like that. My breathless stammering mixed in with my tears and snot as I am being made to barely get out of my mouth the ritualistic words I must say. It ensures everybody will know exactly how embarrassed I am, and how obedient I have been made to be by my spanking. So obedient that, on command, I will stand there bare pussy and apologize to all. They will smirk seeing the apparent sexual excitement of my engorged and slightly dampened pussy. They will see how being mastered by an older man impacts me.

"OK, Julie. Stand against the back wall of the house and think about what you did."

I was glad to turn around but not happy to stand under the porchlight against the back wall of the house where everyone could see my red bottom.

Perhaps not "happy" per se, but maybe a bit contented now that I have been taken in hand and given the Daddy I truly desired and deserved.

Here was my email back to Lion after having received the story and having spent some "quality time" alone with it naked in my bed...

Oh my... very, very, on the nose, hot. Thank you. I feel seen by you, as in, yes, yes I... want that? How can I want that!?!

I loved Phil's assumption of authority, and my female attraction to it, my body putting out the joint and walking to him while my feminist ego was rebelling.

I loved that given Phil's manly size and build, I was given no choice. He stripped my shorts and panties down and threw me across his knee like I was his child. And, fuck, a hand spanking from a man like that WILL teach a woman a lesson.

I loved that my Mom and David ok'd my spanking and stayed to watch. Lawn chairs was a brilliant touch, as in, this looks like it might take a while.

I loved that David and Mom smiled that my pussy was on parade during my spanking. And then when the neighbours came, that's the view they must have seen as well, legs kicking and flailing, miss puss puss and miss bumhole opening and closing as I desperately frog-kicked over Phil's lap. It's what happens when a girl is spanked with her panties down, it's what's supposed to happen. It's exactly the reason they are lowered...

I loved that I went from grunts to wails to tears, from a grown woman being spanked against her will for no good reason, to a little girl deep into her lesson that you do not smoke pot without permission at stepdad's house, and you do not backtalk stepdad, ever! Because stepdad will not hesitate to put you across his knee, completely bare your bottom with all that entails, and spank you to tears regardless of who is there to see it.

I loved that the neighbours laughed and approved of my spanking.

I loved that in front of all of them I progressed to calling Phil Daddy and Sir. It was more than just the pain and embarrassment of the spanking, it was what I needed from Daddy, but did not realize.

I loved that I had to perform a bare pussy apology to everybody. For me it's the climax of the scene (yes, I'm being literal - congrats). I imagine myself standing there, freshly spanked, tears in my eyes, throbbing bottom, dragging my own hands to my sides, squirming in embarrassment. Blood has flown into my pussy from my spanking, I feel it hot and engorged and damp. I think silently to myself, "no, please, not like this, not displayed like this, please, I, I, can't!" I barely force out the required apology, adding "Ill be a good girl" because something inside of me needed to add that. I go over this again and again, my right hand rubbing my clit, my left fingering my pussy entrance. "No Daddy, not, not like this, please, I'll be good, I'll be a good little girl, don't make me... show myself like this!" This is my mantra, at first said silently and then aloud as I climax with my hands shoved into me.

The denouement is my walk to the wall. I stand there, ass throbbing, but pussy throbbing even more with a girlish lust that colours my facial cheeks as much as Daddy Phil coloured my bottom cheeks. Later on, my husband would need to see to me...

You bastard. A hard act to follow...

Thank you,

Julie

What do you guys think? Are Lion and I "cheating" on our spouses exchanging such sexy stories??? What did you think of Lion's story to me, and mine to him?

Spanked for Masturbating - part 1

Many of you know that my husband and I play this little game where we are perfectly fine with the other masturbating, however if either of us catch the other "in the act" it is an instant spanking offense.

I better not catch him like this, or else! ;-)

I was reminded of it this morning as I replied to an email from Lion from his Male Chastity Journal blog. With husbandly and wifely permission, we have been exchanging private little fictional stories with one another to try to heat us both up. His first story to me resulted in an "O". He liked my first story back at him, but he does not masturbate so can't gauge that way, on the other hand he just reported one of his All Time Greatest Orgasms at the hands of his wife (actually "mouth" to be accurate)... so perhaps my story spun his libido up a bit? I'll share the credit with Mrs. Lion regardless: we clearly double-teamed him! ;-) He sent me a second story. I quickly skimmed it and liked what I saw, but had not read it in detail yet. Lion emailed to make sure I got it, and this was my reply:

From: Julie (7:54 AM)
To: cagedlion
Subject: Re: Did I send you my new story for you?

I did get it, thank you!

I read through it once quickly and liked what I read, but now I need some "alone time" with my bed with my husband well out of the room to truly "rate it". One thing that makes masturbating exciting and scary is that it's a guaranteed spanking (and likely fucking) if discovered in the act, right on the spot, even if you are 95% there and soaky wet! But you need to at least try to hide it ;-)

Julie

Perhaps if there is interest, and with each others' permission, we will publish our little stories for you guys on each others' blogs?

At any rate, it brought to mind this little rule between my husband and I, about masturbation being ok but a spanking offense when caught. I've mentioned it before, but have not really delved into it a lot. This has generated quite a few fun spankings over the years, and I have by no means blogged them all. So for this post and the next, I thought I'd discuss this practice a bit more and illustrate with a couple of well-remembered spankings, one each.

I think we can all admit that if we have a live-in partner, and you find out they have been masturbating, even if you are intellectually fine with it, and do it yourself, you are nonetheless just a touch annoyed, no? Certainly I am. Just a touch. I mean, he has almost 24x7 access to ME, why does he need to jerk off? What's wrong with ME???? Who wouldn't want to fuck THIS at every possible opportunity, am I right?

Just bend me over, whip my ass, slap my tits, squeeze my breasts, pinch my nipples, grab my hair, stick it in any hole he pleases. I mean, I am his wife and he has been granted full alpha male sexual access to me at all times, day and night...

Daviiiid!
Why won't you just SPANK me and FUCK me???
Pleeeeease!
You can even have me in the ass, baby...
Shall I reach back and spread it for you?
I'll lube it and spread it open for you if you want...

Maybe some of you married guys can explain it to me in the comments below.

Well at any rate, he does still like to jerk off from time to time. And when I catch him doing it, my thoughts are "you're not an Alpha Male, what a cucky beta thing to do you pathetic she-man. Like a little monkey in the zoo, tugging on it."

Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo

And you know what seeing that makes me want to be? Yup. Alpha Female here! So pathetic, needs to be pantied and punished if not caged also for the day.

david after I catch him masturbating

It's even better if I time it so that I walk in on him just as he's mid spurt.

Ha ha! Makes his spanking and ass fucking just that much worse when he has to take it "limp dick" holding a mouthful of sperm as an object lesson.

Oddly enough as a lifelong confirmed spanko, his go-to masturbatory materials are not usually spanking oriented. He seems to prefer still images of women in compromising positions. One I caught him with once was literally this one:

When quizzed he admitted that as he came he was thinking of being that girl. I thought that was so funny that I made him repeat the Q&A when my sister Sue was there and we were trying to train him off his premature ejaculation issue (Trained in front of Sister),

J: david, when you masturbated to this picture, where were you looking?
d: at her backside
J: And do you imagine you’re the big strong man in the photo?
d: no
J: So who do you imagine you are in this photo?
d: nobody...
J: Liar! That's not what you told me. Now one more chance to tell the truth. Tell Sue who you imagine you are in this photo?
d: the girl

J: Now look at the girl and imagine it's you. Keep rubbing yourself. Where's that big strong man taking you?
d: he's not taking me anywhere
J: Shut up and imagine you're the girl like I told you to. Now where is he taking YOU.
d: to bed
J: And what's he going to do when he gets you there?
d: give me a spanking
J: What will he use on your cute little ass?
d: just his hand
J: Yeah, he has a big strong hand. His hand would be like my paddle, wouldn’t it?
d: yes
J: Would he make you cry?
d: yes
J: And then what would happen?
d: I don’t know
J: He'd want to fuck you, wouldn't he?
d: yes
J: In the ass?
d: yes
J: and pussy?
d: yes

J: Would his cock stay hard a long long time as he did that
d: yes
J: And you’re not gay at all, right?
d: NO!

I mean, he says he doesn't want a guy involved at all, but come on! really??? This is what he needs:

Followed by a bit of this:

And if he still wants to cum after all that, then since he does not seem to approve of the feminine hand as much as his own hand so much, why not by a male hand in baby position?


What I wouldn't give to see him bucking, whining, and gyrating while a guy gets him off in front of me like that.

Another image he likes is this:

He flips back and forth in his mind from guy to girl, but cums imagining he is the girl.

And this is a montage of images I once caught him with, propped up beside him on the bed.

Again he flips back and forth imagining himself as guy and girl, but he was starting to cum imagining himself as the girl in the lower left corner getting her asshole plunged. He was 95% of the way there when I walked in on him.

"Bad, bad boy!" I told him. "Put your cock down. Now!" It was positively twitching in the air. "Pile two pillows down and drape your ass over them." He rapidly complied. I went into the bedside drawer and fished out the tawse. He was getting a good old-fashioned strapping.

Without benefit of warmup I whipped it diagonally down into his low ass cheeks. The soft underside of his ass where butt meets thigh.

"AGHHHHHH!" He screeched. Music to my ears.

I went to undress and strap Adam on around my hips. He would get the rest of his strapping knowing what was coming next...


He liked to fantasize about being man-handled as if he was a girl? I'll make it easier for him. After a very thorough leathering I put him on his back and hoisted his feet up so he would more immediately see what was coming.


I didn't even require him to stare at my cock while I put the finishing touches, diaper position, on his ass: he did it anyways. Oh yeah, baby, you know what's coming next. Are you scared of Adam? You should be!

After his fucking I decided to finish him off, butt plug in, ankles up, cumming into his own face.

Masturbate when there's a real woman in the house? Ha! THIS is what you get!

Ha ha!

New Book - Rings of Consent

I started in on my new book project last weekend. I'm calling it,

Rings of Consent
Interviews and commentaries on Ontario's
new consensual discipline laws and their
impact on society.

by
Julie Delmar

I think it will be great! If anybody has some idea for a cover that is suitable on Amazon (no explicit nudity), please let me know.

So far I've written the preface and the first chapter. I did a trial balloon of my concept on my post Consent Ring Gets Nod in Ontario.

I decided to lead off the Preface with this:

This book is offered as a work of fiction for your entertainment and amusement. It posits an alternative universe where domestic discipline among consenting adults has been normalized and fully legalized in the Canadian province of Ontario. Intrepid investigative journalist Julie Delmar sets off on a titillating quest to interview founders, practitioners, and bystanders. This is their stories told in their words.

I mention it is fictional right off the bat. I don't want folks getting mad and googling and all that and then calling me a liar, liar, pants on fire. But even before the end of the paragraph I'm already starting to write as if it was real, "their stories told in their words". I want to start confusing the readers a bit right up front in this way, get their brains reeling a bit back and forth so they can settle into the "what if?" universe I'm about to create for them.

The preface then goes on to talk a bit about me and my real-life relationship to consensual domestic discipline. At first this was ridiculously long, with lots of sexy real-life stuff to illustrate, but it had gotten way too long. I need punchy chapters! Like a butcher first, and then a surgeon, I cut it way back down to size. Because I can't stand killing my word babies like that, I cut and paste them into a section at the back of the document: Tumbolia. I would have plenty of time to recount sexy goings on in the interview chapters, and those hard won turns of phrases may yet see the light of day. I managed to get the Preface down to a fairly tight 4 pages so we could get on with the action more quickly.

I did, however, leave in the bit that explains that these relationships were by no means exclusive to women on the bottom, and I plan on the book being roughly 50/50 male and female bottoms with some gay and lesbian and gender non-comforming folks in there as well.

The Preface ends with,

But at this stage in my life, I am not ashamed I am a spanked wife and do wish more people could know it. I know that currently that it is not possible outside of a very few close and trusted family and friends, or a kink gathering which for me does not satisfy this need. But I dream of a society where it would be mainstream and acceptable to have people in general know this about me and to even witness my spankings with approval and encouragement. This would of course embarrass me to no end, being spanked in public, but would be a potent disciplinary tool for my husband to use and would dramatically increase the intensity of the experience for me.

This thought was the genesis for this book. What if? What if our consensual domestic discipline arrangements could be officially recognized and registered? What if society was accepting of the fact that people like me benefit from these sorts of arrangements? What if public indecency laws were exempted for this purpose and the oft promised most dreaded public bare-bottomed spanking was fully legalized between consenting adults? What if the public were supportive of the positive mental health benefits that participants enjoy? What if people accepted that sexual arousal was a natural part of adult consensual discipline and not separable from it, and rather than being scandalized by it, would enjoy it and even tease the miscreant about it to add to her beneficial punishment?

Is this too far a stretch? Were not trans women scorned, vilified, and ridiculed only a scant decade ago? Yet now, as they should, they are beginning to enjoy recognition, respect, and specifically equal treatment under the law. Why not the same societal respect for consensual domestic discipline arrangements?

Why not indeed? Let us dream...

Those paragraphs became very heartfelt for me. Our kink is very poorly understood and is still not very socially acceptable, is it? We hide behind anonymous identities and scurry away at the slightest risk of discovery. Why does this have to be? Why do we have to be so ashamed of who we are??? The parallels with gays from another era, or trans folks today, is actually a bit striking when you think of it.

Writing the end to that Preface actually fired me up to totally "come out" and to promote exactly the sort of movement I am writing about in this book. They say to change things you need to paint a picture for yourself and others of what a better life could be like. Perhaps that will be my contribution?


I've also finished a first cut at the first chapter. I interview Christie-Ann Somers, who is one of the founders of the movement. The name choice is conscious. I wanted to evoke a bit of "Christ-like" passion, give a little nod to Christian Domestic Discipline, our brothers and sisters in lived kink, and also the notion of a hopeful and languid summer after a harsh winter of struggle. Ann is a reference to Ann Torbet of Texas (see below), and the hyphenated name invokes a Southern girl getting the strap, at least in my mind.

New York Post, 15 September 1977
Student Gets Her Spanking
Mrs. Ann Torbet of Texas with the belt she used to punish her
daughter Tammy. After Mrs. Torbet objected to the paddling of
her daughter at school a compromise was reached whereby she
was allowed to come to the school and administer punishment
with the belt she used for home discipline. An assistant principal
of the school was quoted as saying: "Tammy would have been
better off taking the paddle swats from us: her Mom really
sizzled her behind with that strap."

In Chapter 1, Christie-Ann explains how she and her partner had the cops called on them by apartment neighbors fearing domestic abuse and hearing Christie-Ann calling out for her partner to "stop, please stop!". When the cops arrived they doubted it was consensual and detained the partner despite Christie-Ann's attempted explanation of consensual non-consent. As a result of the perceived injustice and subsequent ridicule when the truth came out, the pair launched a movement to bring awareness to couples such as themselves. The movement grew and eventually they lobbied for the law to be changed. In Christie-Ann's words:

At a certain point we had gained a lot of positive attention and more and more people were practicing the lifestyle. We did some police outreach, and we found out, just like in our case, they were pretty much hamstrung by policy if they encountered a spanking couple. So we worked with them and with some cooperative Provincial Members of Parliament, to draft a bill that gave more concrete guidance to police and citizens.

Basically, the proposed law made it illegal to interfere with the administration of corporal punishment between consenting adults. You were required to pause and give your names if asked and produce evidence of a contract. If the punishment were unreasonably beyond what the contract allowed for, police or citizens in general could intervene, but otherwise it was hands off. You could literally be fined or go to jail if you tried to stop a punishment when a reasonable person would consider it to be within the contract bounds.

We also very deliberately included the ability to apply corporal punishment in public spaces. The contract had to specifically allow it and had to specifically call out the maximum allowed level of undress. Under those conditions you were exempt from any public indecency or nudity-type laws when the purpose was disciplinary.

We thought it was important to allow for discipline in public spaces. This thing is part of us. We're built this way. We don’t want to have to hide it in public. It would be like banning two gay guys kissing in public. It's not on. Our purpose is to normalize this, and if it makes a few people uncomfortable along the way, well so be it.

It was introduced in the Ontario legislature as a private member's bill, and surprisingly there was very little opposition. The left saw it as another intersectional identity that ought to be protected. The Christian right were proponents. The more libertarian conservatives were all for government getting out of the way of consensual relationships. Some of the centrists were concerned about public decency type concerns, but with the Christian right on our side the objections really couldn't be sustained. And besides, the 'old-fashioned values' crowd were also on our side. As a result, there was no serious opposition and the bill sort of sailed through.

The not-for-profit organization that Christie-Ann founded, called "Rings of Consent" facilitated the administration of the law. Christie-Ann explains.

The law does not specify how you identify yourself and produce the contract, so we step in to make that a bit more convenient for folks. The rings we sell now have unique RFID tags inside of them, and we have an app that can directly take you to the bottom's registration information. There's a photograph on the site, so that's the equivalent to a photo id which serves as adequate identification anywhere in the Province. And the contract is accessible right there. We use blockchain technology to make sure the contract being viewed is the most up-to-date one signed by the ring holder. We sell the rings and continue as a non-profit, providing educational information about the lifestyle and how to practice it safely and get the most from it.

So you see, not so implausible after all is it? Huh? Huh? Huh? I can totally see that happening here in Ontario.

That sort of sets up the book. the rest of the chapters will be interviews with all sorts of other people. I plan on starting mild and getting more freaky towards the end, introducing a spate of interesting characters as we go.

Should be a good read, no? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Jan 6 "Insurrection"

I have not written anything much political since just before the Jan 6 "Insurrection", as people on the left were going absolutely nuts, though I did promise I would comment once passions subsided.

One of my most favoured sources for unbiased news and opinion is Glenn Greenwald. He was a full-time practicing US constitutional and civil rights lawyer from 1994-2005. He then started his Unclaimed Territory blog and wrote a column for Salon, a progressive/liberal news and opinion website. Greenwald was described by Rachel Maddow during this period as "the American left's most fearless political commentator." In 2012 he went to work for Britain's Guardian newspaper.

While at The Guardian, Greenwald was one of the reporters who, on June 5, 2013, broke Snowden's leak of classified documents that exposed the NSA's massive global surveillance programs. This caught the then Director of National Intelligence under Obama, James Clapper, in a massive lie to Congress during an exchange at a hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, March 12, 2013:

SEN. RON WYDEN (D-Ore.): "This is for you, Director Clapper, again on the surveillance front. And I hope we can do this in just a yes or no answer because I know Senator Feinstein wants to move on. Last summer, the NSA director was at a conference, and he was asked a question about the NSA surveillance of Americans. He replied, and I quote here, 'The story that we have millions or hundreds of millions of dossiers on people is completely false.'

"The reason I’m asking the question is, having served on the committee now for a dozen years, I don’t really know what a dossier is in this context. So what I wanted to see is if you could give me a yes or no answer to the question, does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?"

Director of National Intelligence JAMES CLAPPER: "No, sir."

SEN. WYDEN: "It does not?"

DIR. CLAPPER: "Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect, but not wittingly."

SEN. WYDEN: "Thank you. I’ll have additional questions to give you in writing on that point, but I thank you for the answer."

Clapper has yet to answer for his lie to Congress.

Greenwald left The Guardian in late 2013 to found The Intercept, an independent news and opinion outlet against press censorship. On October 29, 2020, Greenwald resigned from The Intercept because of political censorship by the editors who prevented him from reporting on the allegations concerning Joe and Hunter Biden's conduct with regard to China and Ukraine, and had demanded that he not publish the article in any other publication. All the details surrounding that are explained in My Resignation From the Intercept, and Emails with Intercept Editors Showing Censorship of my Joe Biden Article.

Greenwald went to substack and published his article there, where he remains as a fully independent columnist living in Brazil to this day.

Greenwald first reported on the so-called "Insurrection" on Jan 8 in his article Violence in the Capitol, Dangers in the Aftermath. He was critical of the obvious, and politically feigned, overreaction from the left and the mainstream media. And remember, Greenwald is associated more with the left himself. He says, comparing Jan 6 to the Antifa/BLM violence of the preceding summer,

Those who argued in the summer that property damage is meaningless or even noble are treating smashed windows and looted podiums at the Capitol as treason, as a coup. One need not dismiss the lamentable actions of yesterday to simultaneously reject efforts to apply terms that are plainly inapplicable: attempted coup, insurrection, sedition. There was zero chance that the few hundred people who breached the Capitol could overthrow the U.S. Government — the most powerful, armed and militarized entity in the world — nor did they try.

Elsewhere in that article, prescient about the massive overreaction to come, Greenwald writes,

This reductive, binary framework is anti-intellectual and dangerous. One can condemn a particular act while resisting the attempt to inflate the dangers it poses. One can acknowledge the very real existence of a threat while also warning of the harms, often far greater, from proposed solutions. One can reject maximalist, inflammatory rhetoric about an attack (a War of Civilizations, an attempted coup, an insurrection, sedition) without being fairly accused of indifference toward or sympathy for the attackers.

And,

It is stunning to watch now as every War on Terror rhetorical tactic to justify civil liberties erosions is now being invoked in the name of combatting Trumpism, including the aggressive exploitation of the emotions triggered by yesterday’s events at the Capitol to accelerate their implementation and demonize dissent over the quickly formed consensus. The same framework used to assault civil liberties in the name of foreign terrorism is now being seamlessly applied — often by those who spent the last two decades objecting to it — to the threat posed by “domestic white supremacist terrorists,” the term preferred by liberal elites, especially after yesterday, for Trump supporters generally. In so many ways, yesterday was the liberals’ 9/11, as even the most sensible commentators among them are resorting to the most unhinged rhetoric available.

Greenwald wrote several follow-up articles, decrying the attack on civil liberties in the wake of Jan.6, such as,

The one "fact" that kept people excited over Jan.6, was that a Capitol Hill Police officer Brian Sicknick, was battered in the head with a fire extinguisher by a Trump supporter until dead. As it turns out, and as Greenwald covers in The Media Lied Repeatedly About Officer Brian Sicknick's Death. And They Just Got Caught, that was a complete leftist and media fabrication. Read the article. Not even an iota of truth in it. How do you feel knowing that now? Do you feel lied to? You should.

Psssst... it wasn't real...

I was searching around for a new book project - I don't need the money, and certainly not the kind of money one of my books generate (see So, You Want to be an Author) - but I like a good meaty writing project to entertain myself and all y'all as well.

I've done Julie/david and David/julie, so that's it, right? Noooooo! I needed to come up with a new idea, and I came up with this sort of cinéma vérité idea of my province in Canada, called Ontario, leading the way and legalizing and normalizing domestic discipline arrangements between adults. It would totally be a switch book.

Here, for you US people, this is Ontario, where I live:

Because I don't want you US guys invading us and us winding up with Joe Biden, I feel I need to say it's not really as big as the map shows because of the Mercator projection. Here is Ontario's political "leader":

He is the brother of former Toronto mayor, Rob Ford, who, when video came out of him smoking crack with drug dealers, defended himself by saying "I was too drunk to know what I was smoking."

Anyways!

Back to my book idea. So rather than describe the book idea, I thought I'd do a "mini" version of it in my last post. I played it as if it was a genuine newspaper article where David and I were interviewed. I tried to make it slightly believable in the first few paragraphs, and then deliberately got more and more extreme so I could get feedback from you guys if  any of those episodes are "too much" for the book and if I should keep it more "toned down" to make it seems more "realistic"; or never mind, let my kinky imagination roam, the more the merrier! Would love your feedback on that.

I maintained character in the comments. One guy legit thought I was trying to fool him, because he went all over looking for a link to the article. I gave him one, but all it lead to was a "rickroll" :-)

the greatest meme of all time

There was another guy that legit felt that I was lying to him and trying to get away with it, but he had sussed me out, and now that brought into question everything on my blog.

I hear that about 1/3 of humans have no sense of humour at all (I suspect they are all Democrats). And then clearly, 1/3 of those are so gullible they will almost believe anything. For you dum dums, I'm sorry about the nafty twick.

Anyway, if you haven't already, please go look at it now and then come back here to read more about the book concept and give me advice: Consent Ring Gets Nod in Ontario

---

So you get the idea. The book would be a sort of "investigative report" by practitioner Julie Delmar. Each chapter would be an extended interview with a different couple. I'd interview the founders of the movement and get some of the back history. Then I'd interview the people who directly lobbied for the law changes, and some of the politicians responsible for passing it. I'd interview Church and community leaders, the police chief, and so on. I'd interview some leaders and regular people who are opposed to it. I'd interview some teens who are watching all of this but not subject to it. I'd interview parents and relatives of people who practice it and what they think about it. I would have a personal story that I would get into as well. But the bulk of it would be a bunch of interviews with "real couples" and parents with grown children (18+, age of majority), and how they practice domestic discipline.

Some of those background interviews would be just sort of subtly kinky. E.g., an older woman saying "I really can't see how anybody can approve of a young woman, with her pants down in public, getting hit on her backside by a man. It's simple abuse!"

Feels like a good premise to tie together a bunch of kinky episodes. Given the premise, I could include open public scenes, family scenes, I could mix boys and girls, throw in a few alternative embarrassing punishments, like public diaperings and the like.

So what do you think of my book idea? 

Go for it, or don't bother?

What kink level? Do you care?

Any suggestions that would make it a more fun read for you?"

Please let me know!
