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.
