(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)
As already mentioned more times than I can count, the Spanking Court made an appearance at the Tampa Tanners Back to School Bash to film cases for their site. Several of our local members, and some from far away, showed up to bring their cases before the court.
For those that don't know how the spanking court works, it's not too much different than real court, just with the inclusion of spankings in lieu of more serious punishments. The defendant (as well as the plaintiff if there is one) stands behind a podium facing the judge. The guilty party (ie, the defendant, since we already know that they're guilty) stands behind the podium on the right, while the other parties stand at the left podium. Both parties are then given a chance to state their side of the case in their own words.
Judge Feenix Spanks listens to both sides, weighing the facts in the case and delivering a fair verdict based on what he is told. Naturally, this is a guilty verdict, since we already know that they're guilty or we wouldn't take them to Spanking Court. Of course, the girls of Tampa Tanners are guilty by default, anyway, so that works out just fine.
The defendant is then led by the beautiful bailiff, Dana Kane, to the Court Disciplinarian (aka, the Villain) to have the sentence meted out fairly and painfully. Naked from the waist down, they are strapped down to the spanking horse and made to count out each stroke as the sentence is served.
As can be imagined, I had several cases of my own to bring before the court. Cookie, Katia and Dazey all had charges brought against them. To make sure that they knew to appear, I personally served them with court summons, as you can see here.
Of course, as the plaintiff, I also had to appear before the court to state my side of the cases. As always, appearance is important if you want to sway others to see your side of the case, and I made sure to dress appropriately. I even had several extra shirts and ties so that I could switch out between cases and present a fresh appearance before the court.
The first cases were on Friday night, starting with Dazey's. She was found guilty of being a poor houseguest, and sentenced appropriately. Though I wanted to stay and watch the sentence carried out, I knew that Cookie's case was next, and I particularly wanted to look my best to convince the judge that she was the one in the wrong. So, I stepped out to freshen up and change my shirt, but Cookie stayed, though, witnessing Dazey's punishment and getting a good idea of what was in store for her. From what I've heard, Dazey took a very hard paddling, and was in clear distress at her sentence.
Cookie was next on the docket, having been brought to court on charges that she has been neglecting her medicine regimen. This was, of course, true, and she's been disciplined numerous times in the past about it, including several times on video. So, a guilty verdict was assured, and there was no surprise. Well, there was one surprise. I stayed to watch her sentence, and the Disciplinarian's paddle cracked on the last couple of strokes. After the shoot, everyone was amazed at how well Cookie took the paddling, since they said she only looked like she'd gotten a hand spanking. The Villain signed the cracked paddle, giving it to her as a souvenir.
Here's a better look at the paddle, showing the crack down the center that her bottom put in it. They said that they've only broken one paddle before this, so it was far from a common occurrence.
Both Cookie and Dazey left the court that night with some bruises as souvenirs. Everyone that comes before the court also gets to take the “Guilty” panties that they wear for the sentence, though I think more people are interested in seeing the beautiful bruised bottoms.
There was then a break for the night, with cases starting up in the morning. The first of these cases was the last that I was directly involved in. I had brought Katia up on charges of neglecting her diet, as well as not listening to the orders of her nutritionist, and of myself. Again, the verdict was guilty, and she received a firm paddling. I again sat in the sentence, though I was mostly concerned with that annoying spot on her bottom that keeps breaking open. It didn't, however, and the result was a heavily marked backside.
After Katia, there were several models lined up for cases before the court, including Ten Amorette (who will be featured in a future post) and Whitney Morgan. In the middle of all of this, there was also a couple, John and Michelle, who were relative newbies to Tampa Tanners, but decided to take part after only their second party with us. The very last case was Shy, who was taking herself before the court on charges of streaking. As the baby Tanner, she was nervous, though she had all of us there behind her. Here's a shot of the baby Tanner in makeup prior to her case being seen before the court.
Several of us also sat in with her during sentencing, lending her the moral support that she needed. She came through it with flying colors, though, much to the delight of everyone. Looks like the baby Tanner is growing up.
So, all of the girls were seen before the court and punished for their crimes. However, the spankings didn't stop there, as no one was convinced that these young ladies had learned their lessons, even with their “Guilty” panties on to show that they'd been tried before the court and duly punished. In fact, most of us just assumed that they meant that they were still guilty, and needed to be spanked more.
In my next post, I'll share a little more about Judge Feenix Spanks, as he did a lot more at our party than just sitting behind a desk and handing out guilty verdicts.
