Ten Amorette (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

One of my personal highlights from the Tampa Tanners Back to School Bash was meeting Ten Amorette, a familiar spanking starlet with an impressive list of credits to her career of just a few years. In the spanking realm, alone, she has filmed with Punished Brats, Clare Fonda, the Spanking Court and others. She's definitely one of the hot names in the current spanking scene. She also a real treat to play and socialize with, unlike some other spanking models that I've met.

I really didn't see much of Ten on Friday, but her shoot with the Spanking Court was Saturday morning. After that, she spent much of her time in the main party room, usually being a brat to one of the willing spankers. Red Palmer, in fact, had this young lady across his knee several times, probably because he's almost as willing of a spanker as I am, and perhaps more. Between the two of us, there's seldom a moment without spanking heard at a party. It seems, though, that Ten is less than impressed with his spanking style, if this picture is any indication.

Once she was over his lap, though, Red got a very different reaction from the redhead brat. He also got a good bit of color into her cheeks, which soon almost matched the hair on her head. You can definitely see, though, why this young lady is so popular in videos.

Ten's bubble bottom and pouty expressions are what make this girl such a hit to watch or play with. Even when she's across a lap, she finds plenty of opportunities to brat the person that's spanking her, and proves that she can take one heavy spanking when she really gets going. As soon as you left her up off of your lap, too, she's probably already bratting you and making you wish that you'd never let her up to begin with.

Naturally, there was no way that I'd let Red have all of the fun, and Ten found herself over my knee, as well. I'm not sure why I was spanking her in this picture, but it probably had something to do with her calling me a butthead, or something along those lines. That actually appears to be her favorite word, as she used it on literally dozens of occasions over the weekend, usually directed at me. I can't say that I enjoyed the sentiment, but I certainly appreciated the attention.

I had several more opportunities to put this young lady across my knee, including some for the camera. We had originally planned on having a shoot while she was at the party, but a change in circumstances made it look like that idea was going to be put on hold. After some discussion between us, though, we came to an alternate arrangement between us, thereby saving this rare chance to film with her. After dinner on Saturday night, The two of us, along with Shy, drove over to Katia's apartment to film.

The first shoot was an experimental idea of mine that mixed elements of spanking with a damsel in distress scenario. Since Ten actually enjoys being tied up (a trait that she shares with Cookie and Katia), I was able to practice some simple ropework with her as part of the scene. It came out wonderfully, though Ten enjoyed the ropes just a little too much, and was somewhat out of it after I untied her. Once she had a chance to come out of it, she was back in a playful mood, and slid like a cat across my knees for some spanking play. The cameras were still rolling for this candid moment between us, though we were slightly offscreen for most of it. You can hear when she bites me, though, as well as her constant use of the word “butthead” and blowing raspberries at me. For the most part, we were just enjoying ourselves and hamming it up for the camera.

Afterwords, we shot one more short scene, and then headed back to the hotel for the night. We went to hang out with a few of the other attendees at the bar for a while, but that's really not what I'm into, so I called it a night before everyone else and headed upstairs to bed. I didn't get a chance to see her on Sunday as we were cleaning up, but I was able to stop by the hotel on Monday morning for a quick goodbye before she headed to the airport. Hopefully, she'll be back down to Tampa soon enough, though I can expect to see her in August of next year for Fetishcon, if nothing else.

Saturday Night Dinner (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

On Saturday night at the Tampa Tanners Back to School Bash., we had the official dinner, which wasn't very crowded, due to our low turnout. That's okay, though, since we already had enough people to socialize and have fun. Even the Spanking Court's security guards joined us for dinner and took part in the fun, even though they probably thought we were just freaks when they first met us. They later said that we were some of the most down to earth people that they've ever met. We tried to talk the Spanking Court's makeup artist into joining us, but she had to be elsewhere, unfortunately.

It was arranged as a “serve yourself” dinner line, giving everyone a chance to socialize while fixing our plates. In that sense, I was actually glad that we had a small group, as I've been to parties where the dinner line almost extended to the door, and simply took forever. I'm in the habit of waiting until most everyone has served themselves before going up, simply for this reason. Since the line was more manageable, though, I went up earlier, putting me at the food table with Shy, the Villain, Katia and Ten Amorette as they were getting their own. That's certainly an eclectic mix of people.

As we were eating, Cookie called everyone's attention for the door prize drawing. With as many door prizes that were donated, though, as well as a low number of attendees, everyone got at least one door prize to take home, and we even put the names back in the hat to go around for most of a second round. Even the security guards took something, though only one of them was brave enough to actually pick an implement. Shy was pretty predictable, taking a crying towel that proclaims “I (Heart) Spankings.” I know that I'm surprised.

After each name was called, the winner was invited up and given a chance to pick their own door prize from the table, giving the earlier winners a much better chance at getting something that they want, rather than a random prize of our own choosing. Cali, oddly enough, kept choosing long and stingy things like this cane, which was immediately used on her. She can't even behave during dinner, I guess.

Looking very authoritative in her school teacher ensemble, Dana Kane (Spanking Court Bailiff, Dana Kane – Disciplinarian) holds up the paddle that she picked from the table. She probably had a schoolboy or two to try it out on, I'm sure.

The tallest schoolgirl in class, Dazey, also picked a nice cane for her collection, though she almost looks like she's making plans to use it on someone else, rather than having it used on her. Someone needs to explain to her about how things work with naughty schoolgirls. They get the spankings. They don't get to give them out.

After dinner, things really started to wind down. There was still a bit of play, but we split up into small groups to socialize according to our own interests. Eventually, several attendees went out to the bar, others up to their rooms, and Shy and I left the hotel with Ten Amorette for a spanking shoot. I'll be speaking more about Ten in my next post, so keep watching for it.

September Spanko Cookout

To wrap up the summertime Tampa Tanners has decided to do something different for their September meet and greet. instead of meeting for lunch at TGIF's we have planned a spanko Cookout. This event will be held at 7409 Picnic Island Blvd Tampa Florida On September 24th from 12PM-5PM. Picnic Island is a great park with a beach area so our guests and us will get the chance to also go swimming weather provided. I sure hope mother nature cooperates for us. LOL. This event is a free event but we do ask that anyone that attends brings an item to share for the picnic. Tampa Tanners will provide the Hot dogs and Hamburgers and drinks. So it is kind of like a potluck dinner. I have a special dessert in mind that I might decide to make as well. We sure hope that if you are in the Tampa area and would like to join us for some outdoor food fun and games we will see you there. If you have any questions or anything just shoot one of us an email or email info@tampatanners. Tickets will also be available at this event for the cane-iac cane set raffle. They will be $1.00 per ticket and this is one of the last events before the drawing at the Spooky Spanktacular in October.

Bash Vendor Faire (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

The main event on Saturday at the Tampa Tanners Back to School Bash was the vendor faire. It was actually a small event, though, as there were only three official vendors there, plus a few tables set aside to display Spankopoly, the donated items for the door prizes, and the Lupus charity booth. Our primary fears, though, were with the numbers of attendees, not vendors. We were somewhat fearful that the low turnout would make the event unprofitable for the vendors that spent their time and money to attend. Thankfully, this ended up not being the case, as all of the vendors seemed to leave the party quite satisfied with the results.

I would say that the main vendor was the Cali Cutie and crew from the Spanking Court, Spanking Ms. Cali and Paddles and Panties, who brought an impressive display for their sites and wares. The largest items were a pair of backdrops, one of which displayed the products from the three major sites that they represent.

The other large backdrop, which they placed behind the table where they displayed their videos for sale, was a picture of Cali against a door, with “Spankcon” written at the bottom at her knees. Spankcon, from what I've been able to gather, is an event that their agent is working on that somehow combines the elements that spankos look for with the idea of a fetish convention like Fetishcon. I'm still waiting to hear more about the mechanics of this event, as well as the finalized dates that it will be held. My primary curiosity is if Spankcon will be more like a spanking party, or more like a convention, and how it will bridge the two types of events and combine them into one. Given that this event is intended to be held in Tampa, I also hope that I'll be able to assist with its operation in any way that I can.

There was also a rack of, appropriately, panties and paddles, which were displayed prominently. I actually had wanted to look them over and pick something out, as I had a gift certificate that was burning a hole in my pocket. However, I never got the chance. Actually, I had lots of chances, but I was just too lazy, and too busy spanking consenting adult women. It's a hard life, I know.

Another of our vendors was L Means Leather who came prepared with a wide assortment of paddles, straps and floggers. Naturally, with that much leather, a lot of the girls were paying a fair amount of attention to this table. Even Judge Spanks made a purchase, picking up a fire cupping set for his personal collection.

L Means Leather actually was close to the largest setup of all of the vendors, if not the most extravagant. His merchandise, at least what he was able to display reasonably, took up two tables. At the back of his second table, where the canes and crops were sitting, you can see a stack of large wooden paddles. I later picked up one of these paddles for my own, as you can never have a paddle that's too big.

Here I am, proudly holding the implement that I purchsed. It's actually partly obscured by my big head (likely due to an inflated ego that the girls give me), so it's larger than it looks in this picture. The funny thing is that, despite its size, the girls actually don't think that it hurts that much. Maybe I'm just compensating for something?

Another of our vendors was Leatherthorn, who brought a wide assortment of handcrafted leather paddles. From what I could see, he was surely the most successful vendor present, as everyone picked up at least one of his fine implements, and some picked up several. Along with L Means Leather, Leatherthorn is the other reason that Judge Spanks went home with a lot more implements, and a lot less money. I can understand, as I picked up one of my own, and it's a quality piece of work.

Both Dana Kane (Spanking Court Bailiff, Dana Kane – Disciplinarian) and the Villain (Spanking Court Disciplinarian, The Villain Strikes) picked up some of Leatherthorn's wares to take home to California. As you can see, his paddles are very intricate and detailed. They also can pack a wallop, too, depending on how you use them.

So, a lot of spankos went home with a lot of new implements that weekend, as well as a few videos and pairs of panties... and one fire cupping set.

Isabella's Birthday (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

Sometimes, even at a spanking party, you have someone who is so quiet that you hardly notice that they're there. They are shy and unobtrusive, sticking to the sidelines while everyone else is having fun. Isabella is one such spankee, spending most of a party just sitting and watching while everyone else gets spanked. To get her to take part, you usually have to drag her out of the corner (which isn't as much fun as dragging someone TO the corner) and across your knee.

This is how Isabella spent much of the Tampa Tanners Back to School Bash. When she did play, it's because someone singled her out and included her, not because she went looking for it. So, as quiet as she was being, it came as something of a surprise to us when someone called and reminded us that it was actually her birthday that Saturday. She may have told me about it a month or more before the party, but I had forgotten, and she certainly wasn't giving anyone any hints.

Now, armed with this information, it was time to single her out for a moment in the spotlight. It's well known, at least to spankos, that birthdays only come around as an excuse for birthday spankings. If your birthday falls during a party, then, you're going to get spanked for it. For that matter, if your birthday even falls near a party (for this, “near” is defined as up to six months before or after said party), then you're going to be spanked. We were not about to let Isabella slip by without following the tradition, so she was guided up to the center of the room during the vendor faire. For her own shyness (as well as to keep her face out of pictures), I pulled her skirt up over her head completely. The best part was that she couldn't even see who was spanking her, or when each swat was coming.

Naturally, as I do take some responsibility for the girl, though she currently lives too far away to be considered one of my bottoms, I took the first whacks at her backside. Wielding a huge wooden paddle that I'd only just purchased a few minutes before, we counted out one stroke for each year of her life, and then moved on to the next person. From this picture, it looks like I was getting some speed on it, too.

Now, I don't remember exactly what order the spankers went in, so I'm not even going to pretend that this list follows the correct chronological order. However, these are the people that spanked her, so that's good enough. It's probably not too far from the real order, either, so it's fine. Being one of the Tampa Tanners officials, Cookie probably went soon after me, though I can't be sure if it was right afterward or not. She borrowed my new paddle, as did most of the other partygoers who joined in with the birthday celebration.

Sticking to the Tampa Tanners theme, Katia would probably have spanked her around that time, as well. It looks like she was winding up with that big paddle, too.

Shy wouldn't have been too far behind. If it looks like Shy was only barely tapping the paddle on Isabella's bottom, that's because it's precisely what she was doing. The baby Tanner needs to learn how to spank before we let her hold a paddle, again.

Red Palmer, on the other hand, knew how to hold a paddle, and was even dressed for the job.

Finally, Dazey had to jump in with both hands, completely ignoring the fine paddle that had been working so well. I guess that she just wanted to be different, or simply doesn't care for tradition.

Next year, we'll have an easy reminder of when Isabella's birthday is. With luck, she might be able to move back down here before then, and we can guarantee that she gets the birthday spanking that she deserves.

Judge Feenix Spanks (X-posted)

(X-posted from Thomas's Spanking Exploits)

During the weekend of the Tampa Tanners Back to School Bash, many young ladies went before the Spanking Court to have their cases heard by the honorable Judge Feenix Spanks. When he wasn't finding the girls guilty, though, he made time to enjoy other elements of the party, joining us for the fun.

Truly, he was pretty busy for most of the weekend with court business, but he did find time between cases and at the end of the day to socialize with the rest of the partygoers. On Friday night, after Dazey's and Cookie's cases were finished, and a brief period to unwind with the other court officials, Judge Spanks came up to our hotel room to talk and play for a bit. He demonstrated his spanking style on Cookie, and it turns out that he has a very sensual and rhythmic spanking style, which contrasts the usual “funishment” spanking style that typically gets the most time at parties. Given the judge's background, though, it's not surprising, as he leans more towards BDSM, I believe, than spanking.

That being said, it turns out that one of the judge's passions is ropework. Given that several of the Tampa Tanners girls are, for lack of a better term, rope sluts, this worked out well. You typically don't see much shibari bondage at a spanking party, but there wasn't anyone complaining about it, so we allowed it. Dazey was the first to get bound by the good judge at the party, though I believe that Ten had suggested that she wanted to. I don't believe that she had the opportunity, though.

On Saturday, the judge had some free time between court cases, and was able to do some ropework on Katia, which was was quite happy with. He started with a chest harness that included her upper arms, tying off her hands in the back, as well. He then started working on her feet, tying them together, also.

Here's a better look at how she was tied in the back. Note how flat the tie is. Mine tend to look like great jumbles of rope, as if it had been left in a knotted pile and I had just wrapped it around her. I'd like my rolework to look this neat.
btsb judge spanks 2.JPG
The tie on her ankles was a simple, but quite beautiful, wrap. It didn't have to be too fancy, though, as the main purpose was to act as a place to base the next part of the tie off of.
btsb judge spanks 3.JPG
Once these parts were tied off, I helped him get her off of the chair and onto the floor on her belly, where he completed the binds by pulling her legs up into a hogtie. I had hoped that we were going to leave her like this for the entire weekend, but she didn't seem to care for that idea. He should have added a gag when he tied her up, at least.
btsb judge spanks 4.JPG
Unfortunately, the judge had to leave the party late on Saturday afternoon in order to get back to California in time for an evening gig on the west coast. Hopefully, we'll see him again, though, as there has been some talk of the Spanking Court returning to Florida when the Tampa Tanners has its anniversary party in February of 2013.
