Big February Party Is Cancelled

Unfortunately, due to circumstances that are largely beyond our control, the Tampa Tanners have opted to switch gears for our upcoming second anniversary party in February. In lieu of a grand three-day event, we have decided to instead downsize to a simple party on Saturday night. This means that we'll be giving up several of the amenities that would have come with the larger party, including meals and vendor faire, as well as the larger playspaces.

Essentially, there are two main reasons for this. The first one is that Cookie has been having increasing problems with her recurring asthma, and we're coming up to the time of year when it tends to affect her the worse. Rather than risk putting together a large event and then be sidelined due to illness, we came to the conclusion that we have ample reason to switch to a smaller party. Not only would she be better able to attend a smaller party, even if she's feeling under the weather, but the increased stress of a large party would increase her likelihood of experiencing health issues as the date approaches.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, there really hasn't been an awe-inspiring show of support for the larger party that we were planning. While many people have suggested that they would really like to attend, we have not yet received even a single registration for the event. In fact, the only individuals who have truly expressed that they definitely would have liked to come were vendors. Without general attendees, though, arranging a sizable vendor faire would be counterproductive.

We will still be celebrating our anniversary that month, and we will keep the “Magical Moments” theme, but we'll stick to just a single night of revelry for the time being. We can set our goals higher when Cookie is in consistently good health, and when our regular party numbers suggest that a larger party would be likely to succeed.

Those Pirate Girls (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

As I mentioned in Tuesday's post, I noticed a strange phenomenon at the Tampa Tanners pirate spanking party. As weird as it sounds, our friendly neighborhood bottoms showed a curiously switchy side during all of our playtime. It seemed, at times, that they were spanking each other more than we were spanking them. I know that it sounds like a stretch, but it's true. The girls were spanking as much as we were.

Poor Shy was their primary target, as it seemed that all of the other girls were lining up to have a crack at her backside. As you can see, Suzy had a chance to warm Shy up early in the party, and there's Katia waiting patiently on the sidelines to take her turn.

As soon as Suzy let go of that implement, though, it was in Katia's hand for another round of swats to Shy's upturned backside. Our baby Tanner doesn't appear as affected by Katia's spanking prowess, though, so I guess that Suzy has better spanking skills than the Tampa Tanners management.

Cookie tried to regain the honor of Tampa Tanners later in the night, getting her own opportunity to take a few whacks at Shy's bottom. Cookie did a better job than Katia, but it still looks like I'll have to step up if there's going to be any spanking by Tampa Tanners staff.

In fact, Suzy was so sure of herself that she offered her backside up for Katia to take a turn on her. That either proves that she's brave, or didn't think Katia could make it hurt. There was some color, though, so maybe Katia surprised her.

The other target that the girls focused heavily on was Red, who is normally the one dishing out the spankings, but does switch when the opportunity arises. The girls seemed more than happy to turn the tables on him, too. That smug grin on Suzy's face proves it.

Cookie was no less enthusiastic in her own turn on Red's red bottom. I don't think that I've ever seen her grin that big. Well, maybe I have. I don't remember how giddy she was at the Texas Allstate party that I volunteered for the spanking booth. That memory, though, is enough to make sure that I'm not going to volunteer my backside again in the future.

Hopefully, all of the girls were able to get this Toppiness out of their system. If they get too ornery, they might get the idea that they can try to spank me, and that wouldn't be a pretty sight when I finished with them.

Pirate Spankings (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

Yes, I know that this is the part that you've all been waiting for. I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of all of the spankings that were handed out at the Tampa Tanners pirate spanking party. I have quite a few to share, so I'm actually splitting it up into two posts. The ones that I'll be posting on Thursday have a special theme, but I'll save that for a surprise.

Shy was near the first of the girls to get their bottoms warmed at the start of the party. I can't claim that this is out of the ordinary, as I'm sure that she deserves all of the spankings that she can get. However, not everyone gets spanked with a boat oar by the pirate captain. She had to stay in that position for a while, too, because I wasn't the only person in line to apply some heat to her seat.

It didn't take long for spankings to break out like a virus in the party suite, as this picture of Cookie getting spanked by Red Palmer while Isabella is across my lap in the background. There were only a few moments when two or more spankings weren't going on in tandem during the night. We were keeping pretty busy, and we liked it. This picture was actually taken later in the evening, after Cookie had changed out of her pirate costume.

After the dirty clues game, Suzy brought one of the slips of paper to me to collect on one of the spankings on them. One of her slips offered the chance to give or receive five strokes with the aluminum paddle, and she naturally chose to receive. As the paddle had already been set out on the air conditioner to cool down, it was at the perfect temperature to both warm and cool her bottom. Aside from the paddling, she should probably also be happy to know that I've been looking into getting the paddle duplicated. Once I use my contacts in the machinist industry, I'll look into how much it would take to produce a large number of these paddles for sale at our parties, as well as online for anyone who might like to order one.

Todd wasn't twiddling his thumbs while all of this was going on, either. As you can see, he was able to catch Cookie while she was still in costume. The chance to spank a pirate isn't something that you can easily pass up.

Suzy was interested in a bit of flogging, which was quite thematic for a pirate party. Plus, since she had received a quirt (something like a short whip) as a prize, it only seemed appropriate to test it out, as well as a few other items. Red was eager to try them out, as well.

The hardest part about spanking Shy is trying to get her skin red enough to please everyone. A lot of us spend the entire night trying to add enough color to her cheeks to notice. It's not easy, but we keep working at it. Besides, it's not like Shy can ever be spanked too much, after all.

Red and Katia slipped off into the adjoining bedroom for a more comfortable spanking position. Although, as I speak from experience, this position really isn't any more comfortable, at least for the spanker. I prefer a couch or chair, or some other position that better supports the back. Sitting flat with my legs spread out in front of me always feels awkward.

That's all for today, but come back on Thursday to learn of an interesting phenomenon that I witnessed at the party. It was quite unexpected, to say the least.

Pirate Games (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

As I mentioned in a previous post, the Tampa Tanners pirate spanking party had a few items to give away as prizes. Some were door prizes that we gave away in a raffle, and the others were for a game that Cookie had planned for the event. All of these fine implements were provided by Cane-iac, who has always provided us with quality implements or parties and for personal use. I have a considerable collection of his implements in my toybag.

The game was fashioned as a trivia contest, with Cookie reading out clue to the room while we each tried to guess what the answer. There weren't normal clues, though. They were written with a considerable amount of innuendo, giving the impression that they were describing something dirty. However, the actual answers were very clean. As an example, consider these three clues...

“Bush has a short one.”
“Gorbachev has a long one.”
“The Pope doesn't use his.”

If you guessed anything besides “last name,” then you'd have gotten the question wrong. All of the questions were like this, with everyone trying to guess completely normal things based on perverted hints. Once the game was over, Cookie checked everyone's answers. The person with the most correct answers picked one of the slips of paper out of the treasure chest. Then, the person with the second most answers came up to pick one, and so on. This was continued until all of the papers were gone. One of the papers had a prize written on it, while the others had a number of spanks to be given or received, sometimes with a specific implements.

In afterthought, I'd probably have suggested that the person with the most right answers should have gotten more papers, since it would have upped that person's chance of winning the prize. As it was, everyone had equal chances, no matter how well they did in the game.

The remainder of the items were then given out in the raffle, and just about everyone went home with something, I think. That is one advantage of smaller parties, I think, though I'd certainly welcome the idea of higher attendance. Everyone was happy with their new acquisitions, though, and Suzy was quite enthusiastic about showing off and using her new toy.

Tomorrow, I'll be sharing the images of the party's spankings, which were plentiful. In fact, we went crazy with spanking play, it seemed, to the point that it affected all of the bottoms in a weird way. That, though, will be a story that I'll save for Thursday.

The Pirate Look (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

Yes, I know that I'm a little late, but I'm finally getting around to filtering through the pictures and memories of last weekend's Tampa Tanners pirate spanking party. I was sidetracked by a few other topics over the past week, but I'm back on track. Since this was a pirate-themed party, we had the decorations and costumes to set the scene. Much of our props were leftovers from the Titanic party, but we did include a few important new ones, including two pirate treasure chests.

This first chest is actually one that I've had in my possession for a while, and am now using to hold some of my gaming materials for Saturday nights. At the party, though, it held door prize tickets, and cards for a game that we played. I'll share more details about the games in my next party post, though, which will likely occur on Monday.

The other chest wasn't as permanent, but it was certainly tastier. Cookie made this treasure chest cake using directions that she found online. She always goes the extra mile to make the food and decorations special for our parties. Many of us, though, could have done without the cabin biscuits from the Titanic party. This cake, though, got much better reviews. It almost looks like it and my own chest were separated at birth, if either of them had been born.

Of course, none of our parties would be complete without the costumes that we wear. I put a lot of effort into my pirate outfit, and even added in a few extra elements that I haven't used before. The toy gun was something that Cookie and Katia got as props for the party, and it just seemed to work with my look. I also added in the wig, which I previously used for cosplaying at anime conventions as a vampire character. Given that it almost looks like it's bunched up in dreadlocks, it added an extra level of depth to my pirate motif. I actually went barefoot for the party, though, as I couldn't find my boot toppers that I used to have that could make my dress shoes look like pirate boots. I'm sure that I'll find some more before next year.

My favorite part of this costume, though, will always be the paddle, which I purchased at an anime convention from a vendor that makes Gothic Lolita accessories. I always try to purchase one each time that I've seen her at a convention. Unfortunately, I don't think that she makes these, anymore, so I won't be able to buy any more. I have five different ones, though, so I should be good for now.

Cookie's outfit was largely based on a pirate costume that she bought a few years ago, though she also added in a few accessories to improve the look, such as one of the guns. She also has another of my decorative paddles which fit the theme of the party. I believe that the choker was also a new addition, but I could be wrong.

Now, Shy took some work to get into costume, unfortunately, as she just didn't come prepared for the party. Since she didn't have anything to wear, though, we came up with an alternative. We had brought some pirate-themed fabric (I believe that I got it out of my big box of fabric for craft projects), and made her a simple pirate bandanna from it. Given her personality, a pink bandanna actually fits her better than most pirate ideas, anyway. She would definitely be the brattiest pirate on the seven seas.

Suzy was also dressed up for the occasion, though I apparently don't have a decent picture of her in her costume. So, I'll just have to describe it to the best of my ability, which shouldn't be too hard. She was wearing what mostly appeared as a wench costume, though with ornamental chains around the waist which would appear more natural for a gypsy or bellydancer. She had a band of fabric wrapped around her forehead. I'm sure that there will be some decent pictures of her in it once I start sharing the spankings and games, but I had hoped for a simple picture to better illustrate her appearance.

And, the Spankings (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits) As promised, as I've already shared the props and costumes that made the Tampa Tanners Titanic spanking party a hit, here's a post dedicated entirely to the spankings that were given out. There were certainly enough bottoms to go around to keep most of us busy, though we were a few people short than we had originally thought were coming. We didn't let it keep us down, though, and made the most of it. As I had alluded to in my previous posts, we had a lot of fun using the props and costumes in our spanking play, and taking a few good pictures to document it. Near the start of the party, several girls went across my lap as I was lying on the watery scenery. Katia was one of those girls, as you can see from this image. Todd also used the ocean floor as a backdrop for a picture that he took while spanking Cookie. I almost didn't notice the water, though, as Cookie's bottom just looks so inviting in this picture. That lifesaver, even if it's nothing more than a pool inner tube with “Titanic” written on it in permanent marker, was still used in many scenes. Jeremy used it as a target to keep his spanking aim true and focused directly on Cookie's backside. This would probably be a good defense for a bottom to have for those spankers who use implements tend to wrap around the hips too much. Jeremy found a different use for the lifesaver when it was Isabella's turn across his lap. Apparently, those legs of hers simply couldn't stay down and out of the way. Obviously, he doesn't want her to hurt herself by flailing her legs around, so this seems like a humanitarian effort on his part to save her that pain. The prop that was used the most, though, was the boat oar that Todd specially decorated for the occasion. I think that all of the girls felt this implement at some point during the night, and Suzy's bottom was almost as red as those panties when he was finished with her. Just to prove that I'm not kidding about the color of her bottom, here's another picture of Suzy which displays those colors in ample fashion. Apparently, Jeremy had used the oar on her, as well, and was then giving her a soothing hand spanking to cool her down. What a guy. I had my own boat oar out, as well, though it's nowhere near as large as the one that Todd brought. However, the smaller size made it much more efficient for spanking someone that's over my lap, as it does here on Isabella's bottom. As you can see, I didn't need a lifesaver to keep her legs in place. Apparently, Isabella has a problem with keeping those legs down, though. While not exactly a prop, Katia's hosiery seemed to catch a lot of attention. I guess that a lot of spankos have a fetish for pantyhose. Jeremy certainly had a smile on his face when given the chance to spank her in them. It was a sentiment that was shared by Todd. Personally, I don't understand the appeal. They didn't stay on the whole night, though, as I ripped out the ass of them while I was spanking her, since she was adamant that she didn't want them pulled down to enable me to spank her on the bare. She really should have been more specific with her request. Cookie, though, had no qualms with having her undergarments removed for a bare bottom spanking, and I was more than happy to accommodate her. With as little play as we get at home (recent punishment notwithstanding), I'm always happy for the opportunity to warm her properly. At some point during the night, we lined up the four spankees and bent them over the bed for a group spanking. This is really one of our traditions, as I think we do this, or something like it, at just about every party that we have. I guess that it's a good thing that we didn't have everyone that we expected, or we'd have needed a bigger bed. I guess that we'd have just put the two couches together and spanked them across the backs, though. So, that just about catches me up with all of my party reporting. It won't be long before I have a fresh batch to share, though, as the next month is going to be a busy one. This coming weekend, we will be having our April meet and greet, although I probably won't be in attendance, as I'll likely be watching the kids and tutoring Katia's daughter while she and Cookie take care of it for me. Then, two weeks later, we once again return to Pinellas for the Tampa Tanners Takeover at the Tampa Bay Phoenix Club. While it's not my preferred scene, I may attend, anyway, just to support the club, and Cookie and Katia. This is only if there is someone at home to watch the boy, though. Then, the very week after that, there's the May meet and greet and party. While I might not be at the meet and greet, you can bet that I'll be at the party, which is going to have a pirate theme. I'm already prepared to put on my best pirate outfit and have the girls shivering at my timbers. Paddles are made of timber, right?

At Tampa Tanners we love to have goodies for our guests. We usually have a goodies bag for our guest that include common items that could be spanking related and try to keep them with the theme. Another thing we like to do is have prizes and spanking games. Cane-iac is great for helping us with this and have sent us many a prizes for our parties. for the Titanic party we had decided to have a table with the prizes and let our guests choose their gifts when they won. we had two contests. A costume contest and a trivia contest. And since we had so many nice gifts we decided to have a raffle as well. Here's a picture of the prizes everyone got to choose from.

I'm going to write a separate post about the trivia but the first to pick a prize was one of our guests that wishes to remain unnamed and without pictures which we totally respect. He choose the large lexan paddle and had alot of fun testing it out with everyone at the party.

The next contest was our costume contest. In which Todd and Suzy won. Everyone said that Thomas and our costumes were the best but being hosts we are not eligible to win our own prizes and contests. I think Todd and Suzy did very well with there costumes as well. especially with the paddle that they even placed a Tampa Tanners and Titanic sticker on. as you can see in this picture.

And here's a good picture of Todd and Suzy so you can see their costumes as well.

Now they picked the The zebra striped Jr paddle. And like usually happens they started to try it out at the party everyone getting a turn to try it. Suzy really seemed to like it and so did I it is a nice little paddle which I don't usually like little paddles but i did like this one. Here is a few pictures of that being used.




After those two prizes were given and towards the end of the party since we had still a great assortment of prizes we decided to have a raffle drawing for another prize. Isabella won this one and since she was being spanked at the time so told Todd to pick one and surprise her. Todd of course picked the tracker paddle that we all love to hate. I do believe that once she won it since she was being spanked the spanker was given her new prize to try out on her. It was quite fun.

Cane-iac is my favorite implement store. in fact the majority of my implement bag is cane-iac products. We certainly love Cane-iac because they are great people and their prices cant be beat. very reasonable and affordable. Their customer service is likewise unbeatable. And they are always coming out with new and exciting products. You really should check them out. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed at all.

The trivia contest we had was quite fun. There were fifteen questions. The winner got 13 out of those 15 correct. I'm not going to go through all the questions but there were a few that got some interesting answers. One of the questions was how long was the Titanic? The answer was 882 something. But there were quite a few funny answers and this one was no different. Jeremy decided to answer with "long enough to make her say awe" Another funny answer to a question was in response to the captain's name. We got captain crunch and another funny one though I cant recall it now. LOL. I had to give Suzy credit though for her answer to how many life boats were there as she answered not enough which was true LOL. So you tell we had a lot of fun with that. Some tried and some just drew a stick figure boat resembling the titanic leaving most of the answers blank.

After the trivia and the costume contest I believed we served dinner which consisted of a little from every class of the Titanic. The third class biscuits were very very nasty. But the chicken lyonnaise and the creamed carrots and carrots were very good. we also had eclairs for dessert and they were awesome as well. here's a pictures of Thomas eating his eclair as he spanks Isabella.


After dinner it was pretty much lots of fun as we all played with Ice boat Oars life rings and lots of fun stuff. I'm just going to share quite a few pics as they show all the fun we had the best.

LIFE RING FUN= the life ring got alot of play during the party. i had once grabbed to protect my bottom from Jeremy but found out quickly that they don't help much. LOL. I then ended up wearing it around my neck hoping someone might come and save me but no one did. Jeremy even used it to try to keep Isabella from kicking. here's a few pictures of those times.



TTT7-300x188 jeremy and cookie.jpg

ICE PLAY= Being that the Titanic hit an iceberg it only makes sense that there was ice play going on. Katia was the first to surprise a spankee during a spanking and add ice to the mix for the spanker. I believe it was Suzy that was being spanked at the time. And all night long she helped by giving all the spankers ice while they spanked. At one point Thomas was using the paddle to shoot ice off my backside. i had tried to get away from Jeremy in which we ended up on the floor and Katia once again brought him ice. here's a few pictures of those though not sure how noticeable the ice is except in Katias case where Thomas stuffed them under her nylons.







There was no shortage of boat oars at the party and they got lots of use during the party. We even lined up some of the bottoms on the bed and the Tops took turns going down the line with the Oars it was alot of fun. Here's some of the pictures of the Oars being used.

















The rest of the photos were just moments from the party we all had a blast and now I am really eager for the next party.











Thomas and cookie and background.jpg

And this last picture is by far my favorite. I love the angle and the way the water background on the floor makes it look like we are in water as he spanks me. Todd took this while he was spanking me. Spankers angles are always good pics usually.
