Art: Santa's Little Helpers

"Santa's Little Helpers"

I wanted to share this artwork of mine with you all, as Christmas dawns around the world.

In this rather fantastical piece, I wanted to somehow capture a time when Christmas was - at least in my mind - a more 'magical' and mystical time of year... and also deal with the consequence of being a 'naughty boy' in such a world, where both a jolly, caring Santa and mischievious, spiteful magic elves are both a reality!

Here, our shocked young man has been outnumbered and overpowered, stripped nude, and is now being giving a very painful caning from a group of cute-but-cruel female elves. Note the one going over a 'list' in the background; is this young man on Santa's 'naughty list' and these elves have been dispatched to visit and punish him? Or perhaps these mean little helpers are just 'dealing' with a visitor (or intruder) to Santa's North Pole workshop? Also, is he just getting a double-caning as depicted here (ouchies!), or are all those spank-happy elf girls going to take a turn thrashing his poor sore bottom, one or two at a time?

Regardless of the scenario, I hope you all enjoy this picture, and that your own holiday season can be every bit as magical... and spanky!

A very Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it, and to all who have been so kind and accepting and welcoming since I made the big decision to come out of 'retirement' a few months ago and started this blog. I appreciate you all - your comments, suggestions, and friendships - so much.

I am enjoying being 'back' so much, and thank you all for your support!


Flashback: On The Naughty List

"On The Naughty List"
I did this one a long time ago, for a Christmas long past. Makes me feel rather nostalgic just looking at it again here!

This artwork came about from a fantasy I'm sure a lot of spankos have, and perhaps had when they were younger, too: a spanking for being on Santa's 'naughty list'. The idea that 'good boys and girls' got rewarded at Christmas while 'naughty boys and girls' got rubbish presents or - worse - some kind of punishment is of course something not often suggested or encouraged in today's politically correct world, but for myself growing up, the idea that come Christmas Eve, it wouldn't be a stocking full of presents awaiting me at midnight, but a red hot bottom as 'reward' for past naughtiness (the ultimate concept in 'postponed punishment'?) was a rather common thought around the end of December.

The idea of waiting nervously under the covers, unable to sleep as the clock ticked down, imagining a 'special visitor' was coming to pull me out of bed and spank me when midnight struck... surely I'm not the only one who thought about that?

Of course, me being me, a spanking from a fat old guy with a beard wasn't exactly something I liked to imagine, not even as a kid. No, in my mind, Santa would be too busy at Christmas delivering presents to the nice boys and girls, so either Mrs. Claus (an inexplicably hot 'MILF', at least in my daydreams), his strict-but-sexy daughter or attractive female 'helpers' (in my mind, like the kind of young ladies often seen in malls, dressed in cute 'Santa-ette' outfits and helping take photos of whining kids for tired parents) and would be the ones assigned the task of dealing with those on 'the naughty list'. Yes, I was a pervy F/m fan even back then!

Also, since I was (in all modesty) pretty much a 'good boy' as a child and teenager, the fantasy of being one of the 'naughty ones' seemed somehow all the more exciting. Perhaps Santa and his 'naughty list monitor' saw past what my parents counted as good behavior? With their Santa-powers, they likely knew even the small fibs, the secret naughtiness I got away with, and so on. There could be no escaping their exacting and strict standards come Christmas Eve!

While this artwork is not specifically intended as that personal long-ago fantasy (notably the spankee is at least too old to believe in Santa Claus!), it is certainly based on that concept. The single bed to me suggests this is not a married young man, but someone still living at home, who is being paid a visit this night by an unexpected mysterious woman dressed in a provocative manor, carrying a wooden paddle! Her outfit only causes further visible naughtiness once the young man is ordered (or forcibly) undressed, and that paddle is there for the express purpose of executing his long, over-the-knee, bare-bottom spanking sentence for a year's worth of disrespect, disobedience, bad language, irresponsible behavior, back-talk, lying and all manor of other things he thought he'd gotten away with!

On the other hand... there is a totally different, non-fantastical alternative for this picture: this is his girlfriend or wife, and they've been to (or are maybe even still at) a 'fancy dress' Christmas party. She's taken him upstairs for a paddling after an out-of-line remark or act. Or maybe, she's just a girl he met at the party, who's playfully led him upstairs to a spare bedroom at midnight since his familiar (though not entirely unwelcome) groping has earned him a spot on her personal 'naughty boy list'.

Art: Wishing He'd Stolen A Thicker Pair

"Wishing He'd Stolen A Thicker Pair"

A number of people have been posting interesting comments on my previous post "Just The Warm-Up" about the possibility of that 'aunty' catching a boy stealing her panties! Well, this new art piece is about exactly that.

It's hopefully pretty clear here what's happened: caught stealing panties = spanked in panties!

I imagined them as 'aunty' (yes, again!) and 'nephew', though they could also be 'mommy' and 'son'... or even a 'cougar' and her 'toyboy'?

Whoever they are, she's decidedly furious, and he's finding out how angry, much to his displeasure! I'm torn on how this situation began, exactly, though...

Perhaps she walked in on him wearing her lacy panties and spanked him on the spot. Since the setting is clearly 'her bedroom', I can imagine a case of her coming home early unexpectedly, and walking in to find him on her bed (too engrossed in his naughtiness to have heard the door, most likely), wearing her pretty pink panties and pleasuring himself shamefully! That would definitely make her angry, I think... no fibs or excuses are going to explain his being caught like that, eh? How embarrassing for him to be 'busted' like that!

Or perhaps she discovered a pair of her 'missing' panties in his room (under his pillow, bed or stuffed at the back of a drawer) while tidying, and is now confronting him over it? "If you want to take my panties... put them on! Yes, NOW young man! Since you like my panties so much, you can get spanked in them!" He might not even want to wear them; he just stole them to feel, smell or (naughty boy) masturbate with. In that case, it would be both humiliating and fitting justice if she forces him to wear them for his punishment spanking, don't you think?

And what a spanking! Because this artwork is depicting an actual 'offense', I wanted to make her anger clear, both on her face and on his bottom. Hence, the hairbrush... really really hard! Hard enough to leave blotchy bruises for days! Ouch! There's no 'playfulness' in this spanking; this is an angry and severe hairbrush blistering of the kind reserved for naughty little panty thieves!

Oh, and varnished hardwood versus delicate, whisper-thin lace? No contest, I'm afraid! Those skimpy panties aren't providing him with the least bit of protection from that brush (hence the somewhat unwieldy title). Though I suspect they both knew that would be the case from the start!

EDIT: Is it just me, or does it look to you (looking at this pic again) like she's actually paused in mid-spank here - hairbrush hovering - to ask him a question that she expects an answer to? If so, he'd better stop wailing and answer smartly, I think! Or maybe she's just paused for a moment to deliver another angry scolding tirade (no answer expected or acknowledged!) before that brush starts crashing down again?

100,000+ Hits!

"100,000 hits? That was just one hundred,
young man! Don't be such a big baby!"
Wow! I just noticed that this blog has passed the 100,000 hits mark! I don't know what that means in terms of other "big" blogs, but I'm thrilled and honored. Thanks to all who've visited and taken the time to leave a comment, vote in a poll or drop me an email. As I've said before, I read every single one of them!

I have noticed a bit of a drop-off in comments lately (not counting my few wonderful "regulars" - Colin, Smuccatelli, Emily, RobertC, Aunty Andrea, etc. - whom I can always count on to add fun and fascinating insights). I do hope folks aren't getting bored with my art, feeling let down by my absence in October, or were put off by my Halloween posts. I've genuinely missed some of the great people who commented a lot when the blog came online, and haven't done so on recent posts. Still, I know all too well what it's like to get overtaken by "real life", so hopefully it's just the Christmas season keeping us all extra busy!

I mainly bring this up, though, because I want to feature some of my favourite comments in a new "Quote of the Day" sidebar gadget, showcasing a few of the most amusing or interesting little snippets of what you - my awesome readers - have contributed here.

As much as I love to read the comments left, I know not everyone takes the time to dig through them, and there are some great gems of observations people have left that I feel adds to my art and stories - or just spanking concepts and conversation - tremendously (sometimes more than my own words and art!) and I'd like them to be seen more prominently. I'm assuming anyone who leaves a comment publicly (rather than emailing me) is happy for this, but do let me know if you've said something you'd rather I not call attention to!

So do please keep the comments coming, especially those of you who were here when the blog started but have since either drifted away or become 'lurkers' (something I'm guilty of on many a blog/site, I'll admit).

Maybe I should have a special "Love Our Lurkers" event in the new year, eh?

Art: Just The Warm-Up

"Just The Warm-Up"

Time for another OTK artwork, I think!

Hopefully the title and image make the basic scenario clear: our young man is getting a seriously stinging handspanking... but that's just the precursor to the sound hairbrushing he's going to get to follow!

I imagine the lady here as a rather glamorous 'aunty' (real or surrogate) type. She's a bit of a stunner, but strict and definitely no stranger to smacking bottoms! Her fiery red curls suggest to me a bit of a temper, perhaps? I do like how her rather racy, cleavage-enhancing lingerie turned out, too!

Him? Maybe he's staying with her for the weekend/week/holidays? Maybe she's his new legal guardian? However, this could also work perhaps as a 'mommy spanking' too, if you prefer.

Either way, the spanking is clearly taking place in her bedroom (a very lush, very purple room!). The blind being down - and her state of (un)dress suggest that this is maybe a bedtime spanking, though I'm sure there are other reasons for both these things if not!

I tried to make his body language rather childish here; this is a humbling, 'little boy' spanking even though he's a 'big boy' now. The awful sting and burn has forced him to cross his ankles and grip the pillow tightly, and his face is running with tears (note my attempt to make the pillow fairly soaked with them already!). This isn't so much a 'kick and squirm' spanking as a 'hold on tight and just cry' one.

However, once his 'warm up' handspanking is over and the hairbrush is introduced to his already very sore bottom, I suspect the kicking and squirming may begin in earnest, don't you?

As to why he's even getting spanked at all... well, does an authoritative aunty really need a reason? Still, perhaps this is his arrival at her home - his first night in a strange new house - and aunty couldn't resist giving him a nice 'welcome spanking' before bed, to set the tone of his entire stay? Or maybe he actually broke one of her rules for the first time today (either willfully or unknowingly, and anything from forgetting to mow the lawn to being caught masturbating!) and is now being shown just what happens to naughty boys in this house!

Is this his first ever spanking, or just one of many he's already experienced under her roof? Will this be his first hairbrushing, or does he know all too well what he's in for... aunty's palm may burn and bring tears to his eyes, but that hard wooden hairbrush is going to really open up his lungs and make sleeping on his tummy a necessity tonight!

Finally, when it's all over, will she just order him to his own bedroom? Will she put him in the corner for a while before bed? Or maybe she'll give him a nice cuddle on her lap while he sobs against her bosom? Or perhaps, just perhaps, she'll let him share her own bed tonight, for taking his spanking like a brave boy?

How do you see this spanking scenario playing out?

Art: Knowing He's Next

"Knowing He's Next"

To me, one of the most exciting and terrifying part of spanking is "the wait": knowing with utter certainty that you are going to be spanked, and that it's only a matter of time before your hot-bottomed doom occurs!

It could be standing in a corner, pants down with the cool air reminding you how bare and exposed you are, waiting for those footsteps and the voice that announces "turn around and come out of that corner!". It could be after having been sent to your room, sitting on your bed with your pulse racing, eyes glued to the door handle as you wait for it to turn and open, decreeing at last that "it's time". It could be sitting outside the head mistress' office with other doomed miscreants, listening to the crack of a cane or paddle and howls for mercy from behind the door, as the queue thins out until it's your turn at last!

Taking that concept one step further is the idea of actually being right there in the same room as a spanking-in-progress, and knowing you're next for exactly the same! Having to watch and listen as your fellow spankee is smacked to a tearful mess, with full knowledge that "that will be you" any minute... well, that's just scary! Especially since you're getting to see just how hard your soon-to-be-spanker can hit, how strong her arm is, and how merciless she is no doubt going to be with you!

With this artwork, I wanted to capture that "oh god, I'm going to get that too!" vibe for a spankee in such a position. Here, our naughty boys have no doubt be ordered to strip naked and lay face down on their beds, a pillow under their hips to raise their bottoms up to present a more inviting target. Whether they've been waiting in that position for their punishment for a few minutes or several hours, I'm not sure (what do you think?).

Was their wait in tearful misery, both openly acknowledging that they were really "for it" now? Or perhaps they were both angry and sulky, making a "manly" pact between them to "not cry" and maybe even "don't show those girls that it hurts"? If the latter was the case, it's clear now that the one currently under the belt isn't honoring that pact at all, and that the young man in the foreground already knows he won't be able to either!

Indeed, while it's quite expected and natural for the young man being leathered by an angry young woman's belt to be howling and sobbing his lungs out, the boy in the foreground is already crying (tears of fear and anticipation, it seems?) too. Scrunching a pillow over his head and screwing his eyes shut tight, he tries to block out the sounds of his fellow (friend? cousin? brother?) spankee's childish screams and frantic pleas for mercy, but those braying wails and loud cracking of the belt - sounds that fills that small upstairs bedroom - are far too loud to muffle. Besides, nothing can distract his thoughts from the inevitability of his belt-spanking... he's next, he knows it, and it's really going to hurt!

Which raises an interesting question, I think: when you and another person are going to be spanked, who is (comparatively) better off? The one being spanked first, or the one being spanked last? Thoughts?

I'm not sure, incidentally, what the actual reason/scenario for this clearly severe belt-thrashing is, here. I am tempted to say the two girls are sisters, with tough 'big sis' dishing out a leathering for teasing/annoying/displeasing 'little sis'. The younger girl certainly seems quite smugly amused by the two boys' predicament here. Perhaps they 'earned' this strapping for something they did or said to her? Or perhaps she just made something up and told 'big sis', knowing she'd believe her over them? Is this a 'family' (brothers and sisters)? Perhaps one of the boys is a hapless friend, just there for a sleepover? Perhaps the strapper is actually the babysitter for all three of the others? All those ideas work for me... but what do you think?

2011 Birthday Competition Runners-Up

I really enjoyed all the entries I received for my 'Banjo's 2011 Birthday Spanking Competion'. While there weren't a lot of entries, those I got were all very creative and lots of fun! With their creators' kind permission, I've posted some of my favourites below:

Birthday 2011: And the Winner Is...

"Time for cake and birthday spankies, sweetie!"
Congratulations to Emily, winner of my 'Banjo's 2011 Birthday Spanking' competition!

A big thank-you to all who took the time to send in an entry; I appreciated and enjoyed every single one.

With Emily's permission, I have posted her entry below. As I said, I enjoyed every contribution I was sent, however Emily's "extra mile" of effort and evil creativity is what made her the winner.

As for her requested prize (a custom artwork by me)? Well, I received an additional 'gift' from Emily the other day on notifying her of her win... an unexpected (but admittedly well-deserved) ear-burning scolding and telling-off for being so lapse in my blog updates of late!

Thus, she has told me that her prize should be an artwork made to her specifications... depicting me receiving a severe punishment spanking from her! Gulp!!! She made it clear that this was not to be a "sexy" spanking... no, this was a punishment for my procrastination and laziness!

Emily also wanted to make it clear that this 'virtual' spanking was for letting you all down and not posting more often. She's right, of course. While I genuinely appreciate all my fans and friends here who post comments, send emails, and support what I do, I don't always show that appreciation by keeping in touch or posting updates. For that, I'm sorry.

Though if Emily had her way, I'd be much more sorry, it seems!

Flashback: Unexpected Side-Effect

"Unexpected Side-Effect"

Another art post, another hairbrushed young man! This Flashback is by request from an anonymous poster... who remembers this piece from my old group, no doubt.

I like how this spanker turned out; she's young, somewhat "geeky" but cute. I seem to remember that I thought of her as his same-age girlfriend when I made this back in 2003 or so, which still works for me... but she could easily be his step-sister or babysitter (whom he might have a secret 'crush' on!) too. She actually looks a bit younger than him, but (like most girls!) is probably rather more mature for her age than he is!

He's of course in tears (how any spanking should leave a spankee, IMO!) and blushing furiously... though despite his embarrassment, his main concern is clearly still the burning heat that her hairbrush has ignited in his poor backside; throbbing hot cheeks that he continues to frantically rub with both hands... though to no avail, it seems!

As many know, I like playing with the often wildly differing emotions a spanker and spankee feel during the same 'event'. Though both are obviously focused on the poor spankee's unexpected and humiliating uncontrolled erection and cum-spurting, both are very likely thinking very different thoughts about the situation.

Here, our bespectacled, pigtailed young spanker doesn't seem to know whether to gasp in shock or laugh in amusement... she sure didn't expect to see that when she let him up off her lap! He made such an awful fuss about his spanking, too - all that crying and kicking and pleading - and she was sure she was walloping him hard, too! But now look at him, all stiff and naughty, and dripping messily... and all over the leg of her nice new jeans, too! If it wasn't so hilarious, she might be cross with him for that. Gosh, dd he actually like being spanked?! Or are boys really just that silly and lacking in self-control that their little penises get stiff whenever they are that close to a cute girl?

For his part, our hapless young man is in tears and likely very embarrassed about his "reaction". He's confused too: he didn't enjoy his spanking (it certainly wasn't a "playful" or "sexy" one!)... she spanked him hard, and that hairbrush really hurt! So why was he all stiff and drippy "down there"? Was it was all the friction from his wild squirming and wriggling against her denim-clad thighs, as her hard hairbrush was firmly and repeatedly applied to his bouncing bare bottom? Was it being so close to such an admittedly cute and attractive girl - no matter their relationship - that "set him off"? Or did he indeed - even if only on a subconscious level - find some degree of pleasure in his strict and stinging punishment?

For my part, all I can say is (from both memory and personal experience!) that us 'boys' (of all ages) are definitely prone funny physical reactions we just can't consciously control or explain!

Birthday 2011: Quick Update

Just a note to those who've written to me asking about the Birthday Contest deadline extension... all entries MUST be in by November 25th!

Don't forget, the prize is a custom artwork by me, on just about any spanking theme you can think of (and I can actually create!).

I've had a few really fun entries, and will announce the winner on the 26th. Thanks for everyone who has sent an entry and to everyone who's been so supportive recently when I was taken ill.

Much more content to come soon, so please keep those comments and feedback and emails coming, folks! It's you guys and gals that inspire me to keep on creating and sharing, and your ideas and feedback that really do help shape what I make!

Art: His Very First Hairbrushing

"His Very First Hairbrushing"

Ahh, the hairbrush!

Is there a more perfect symbol of female spanking authority? Compact, feminine, innocent-looking (to those yet to experience it's authority!) yet exquisitely painful and able to reduce a naughty boy (or girl!) to kicking and tears in mere moments. In my opinion, it's the ultimate 'domestic' spanking implement.

I intend to write a full feature article on this - my favourite (well, love-to-hate, anyway!) - implement, but that may have to wait for when I have more time. For now, I'll have to be content with this new artwork.

With this piece, I wanted to capture the experience of a young man being 'introduced' to it for the very first time. Maybe he's never been spanked at all before, or maybe this is just the first time with the hairbrush? Either way, it's a moment in his life he'll never forget!

As such, I tried to present him having quite a distraught reaction to this particular spanking! Lots of tears, of course - it is a hairbrushing, after all! - but I also wanted to capture the mixed shock and anguish of a "first timer" too... he certainly didn't expect it to hurt this much! I tried for a sense of desperation as well; he knows his spanking is far from over, yet it already burns and stings far beyond what he thought he could handle! He's definitely panicking and fighting against it, with his arm reaching back either to block the blows or even just to beseech his spanker to "Please stop!" or "Not so hard!" or (most likely) "Pleeeease! No more with that brush!"

As for the spanker herself... I see her as perhaps either his step-sister, cousin or babysitter. She seems the perky, spunky, peppy sort normally, but a real meanie when she has a boy across her lap! I rather like her blond pigtails (something of a "cheerleader vibe"?), chunky jewelry (that toe ring just seemed to suit her) and cheeky shorts and crop-top (hands off!), too.

The actual reason for this "hairbrush indoctrination"? Maybe he pushed his sister/sitter too far and she decided "a good dose of the brush" was long overdue for him? Maybe she's spanked him before but her hand just doesn't seem to be working anymore... so she's decided that it's time to 'graduate' him to the hairbrush? Or maybe she's just bought herself a nice new wooden hairbrush and wants to try it out on him... just because she can?

Whatever the reason, she's certainly burnishing his buns with it though... it doesn't seem like she's going easy on him at all despite this being his first-ever brush-spanking!

I'm actually quite pleased with how the 'battle damage' turned out this time... it looks distinctly sore and more "hairbrush caused" than just general redness you might get from "just" a handspanking. I suspect he'll be having serious trouble sitting down in comfort after this!

Famous spanking artist Jay Em once captioned one of his pictures: "The first brushing is forever". I think this young man would heartily agree with that sentiment, don't you?

Flashback: Trick Or Treat

"Trick Or Treat"

Finishing off the (late!) Halloween theme for this year, this Flashback piece was originally made back in October 2003, if I recall correctly.

I've noticed that most Halloween spanking pictures usually revolve around one of three scenarios:
  1. A 'trick or treater' is spanked by the householder they are visiting (almost always M/F, and usually either because the girl tried to play a 'trick' on the home owner, or just because he's a grumpy old bastard!).
  2. A 'fancy dress party' spanking, usually intended primarily to show off cute costumes (typically M/F but sometimes F/F for sexy costume overload... a good excuse to put a slightly-too-old-for-it girl in a school uniform or cheerleader outfit, too!)
  3.  A 'supernatural' scenario (e.g. a vengeful ghost spanks someone who disturbed them, Great Cthulhu spanks a foolish female investigator, etc.)... though this is fairly rare!
Being that I'm a huge fan of 'role reversals', I decided I wanted to try a variation on Theme #1 fior this piece. Of course, it would be F/M but rather than have the trick or treaters being spanked by the householder, I decided to flip that and have the mischievous trick or treaters bursting in the door and spanking the householder for not giving them any candy!

Sure, these (college age?) girls look a little too old for trick or treating, but I really wanted to use these fun and sexy costumes - Egyptian mummy, devil and witch - for the trio.

Besides, that's probably why this foolish guy refused them candy in the first place! He's quite likely not an unreasonable grump (as most spanko-scenario trick or treat householders seem to be!) but just didn't feel the need to hand out candy he'd saved to kids to these three young ladies on his doorstep, no matter how sexy their costumes were!

Or maybe their revealing costumes were the whole cause of the 'incident'? Maybe the guy made some lewd comment about their choice of dress-ups, or perhaps they just noticed his eyes staring where they shouldn't as he opened the door to them?

Whatever the reason, it's a 'trick' he won't soon forget! The three costumed ladies barge right into his house, outnumbering and overpowering him, then yank down his pants and underwear, pin him down, and proceed to give him a real devil of a spanking then and there!

The only question now is, will the girl in the devil costume be doing all the spanking, or are all three going to "take turns" on his poor butt?

Whatever happens, I'll bet he's much more generous with his candy next Halloween, eh?

P.S. Is it just me, or does the 'devil' girl doing the honors here bear something of a resemblance to the absolutely awesome Dana Kane?

Dark Matter: Fantasy vs Reality (Halloween Postscript)

I wanted to take this opportunity to follow-up and answer the person who expressed "concern" over my previous post. Given this is (or was!) the season for all things dark and disturbing, I felt this was the perfect time to get this stuff out of the way in the form of a "mini-article".

Everything on this blog is intended as fantasy only. Nothing here is intended to reflect real-life, or a support of any immoral or illegal behavior. Like a lot of folks' spanking fantasies, some of mine are "non-consensual" (I'd be willing to bet a lot of other folks' here are, too). This also sometimes involves aspects that fall under "sex", I'll freely admit, and not always in a loving, caring way. Please understand that this doesn't mean I want or agree with such things in reality.

I tend to shy away from a lot of hardcore BDSM material - especially stuff with an X/F bent - because I personally don't enjoy that... seeing a woman in pain or fear is not something I enjoy. But that doesn't mean I don't understand the fantasies of people who do enjoy imagining such things happening to them. I know a good few lovely and very independent ladies who fantasize about being physically overpowered and spanked - even humiliated - against their will by their husbands, boyfriends and even total strangers... something I can totally understand but would never condone in reality. A past girlfriend of mine once confessed to "kidnap fantasies", but that doesn't mean she wanted to be actually kidnapped!

In a more "vanilla" context. how many of us enjoy horror movies, but would we want that dark stuff to really happen to us or someone else? I've often likened spankos to those who love scary movies and roller-coasters and ghost trains... stuff designed to invoke emotional and physical responses - fear, loss of control, etc. - that any sane person should want to avoid at all costs!

In reality, any spanking or BDSM practiced should always be safe, sane and consensual. Real rape or abuse is never "okay" or "fun". However, our imaginations (as both subs and doms), are sometimes a bit "darker". I hope folks are able to understand - and maybe even relate to - that.

Please don't think I'm overreacting to one single comment; I just want to make this stuff clear before this blog goes any further. As I said, often my fantasies (and thus, my art and stories) will stray into the "non-consensual" side of spanking and sex, and I want to clear the air before anything else causes controversy or concern.

So, if fantasy depictions of things that should not happen in real life bother you, please "look away". Don't worry, I won't be posting child porn or extreme brutality or anything genuinely horrible like that. But if the idea of a female police officer abusing her authority to unjustly strip-search and thrash a prisoner, or the idea of a cruel "aunt" spanking a young man under her roof every night just because she can, or the idea of a female boss who sexually harasses her employees and spanks them when they complain... if these are the sort of fantasies or make-believe scenarios that offend, then this blog is probably not for you.

As an aside, I think this is an interesting topic for those of us involved in spanking, BDSM and related sexuality, and invite discussion if you'd like... but I do ask you keep things polite and considerate.

Art: Preparing To Pounce

"Preparing To Pounce"

A belated happy Halloween to everyone! Though I missed the actual date, I wanted to celebrate the thrills and chills of the night with this new artwork.

It's a little different from both content and theme of much of my art; an attempt to create something with more of a "dark" atmosphere.

This night, you'll find no ghosts or goblins... just two evil-minded "tough gal" bullies, out on the prowl amid the dimly lit city streets in the worst part of town.

They've been drinking, but not to excess. They prefer to keep their senses sharp for what they have planned. And indeed they have made plans for tonight!

Across the street, their intended victim is spotted leaving a grocery store; a young man with very cute buns in tight blue jeans... a college student, perhaps? The pair exchange smiles. That's him. He's the one, they agree.

They follow him home, keeping in the shadows and avoiding his gaze whenever he peers back over his shoulder anxiously. Does he know he's being followed? Probably not; just naturally timid, they decide. Good. More fun for them. They like the shy and timid ones the best.

As he reaches his apartment building, one readies the handcuffs they brought with them. The other produces the wicked wooden paddle; a mean, home-made affair, drilled through with holes to increase the sting. A sudden realization: they forgot the gag! Ah, no matter... one can soon be improvised from an item of their victim's clothing. They've done it before, after all.

The pair watch the nervous young man fish out his keys and fumble for the lock. He clearly doesn't like being out alone at this time of night. The two women smile, both thinking the same thing: he should be worried. After all, anybody could be lurking out here!

Anybody... such as two sadistic street chicks, hiding in the shadows, just around the corner of his building. A pair of cruel bullies waiting to rush him the moment he gets the door open, to clamp a strong hand over his mouth and bundle him inside, to snap icy-cold handcuffs around his wrists and drag him into his own apartment for a long, painful night of cruel spanking fun.

Fun for them, anyway. Very likely not for him... not that they care. They intend to enjoy themselves at his expense. He can plead, beg and cry all he wants (muffled through his makeshift gag, of course)... that just increases their amusement, anyway.

Oh, they'll let him go when the sun comes up. Probably. But he won't tell anybody what happened. He won't dare, because they'll tell him: if he does, they'll be back!

There's a sharp clink. He has the door open. Time for them to make their move...

Happy (belated) Halloween, folks! Pleasant dreams.

Oh, and if the above fantasy is too dark for you, here's an alternative... it's Halloween - "trick or treat" time - and the foolhardy young man depicted is returning home after egging these girls' apartment window (hence the shopping bag)... boy, did he he mess with the wrong girls in the wrong neighborhood!

And... I'm back!

"Okay, brat... which one do you want first?"
Thank you for your patience and kind words, folks! It took a little longer to get myself 100% than I thought, but as of today I'm back in the saddle and ready to start this blog going again, and will be catching up on your comments as soon as I can!

As a gift to all who wished me well, here's a quick new artwork I did of the kind of medical "encouragement" that might have prompted me towards an even faster recovery... though anyone who (like me) ever feared a "shot" from a nurse might be a little nervous when presented with the following sight!

Meet Nurse Sophie... she doesn't tolerate any nonsense at her clinic, and she isn't known for being kind, sympathetic or gentle with her patients, either! So what do you think she might be saying here?

A) "Either you take your shots or you get spanked... your choice!"

B) "Since you're being such a baby about taking your shots, you're going to get a spanking as well!"

C) Something else?

Either way, you just know where she plans to administer those dreaded injections... either laying over her knee or bent forward over the exam bed, that needle is going right into in your poor butt!

Which means, if it is after her awful paddle has blistered that same fleshy part of your anatomy... DOUBLE OUCH!

Still alive!

Hi folks!

I just wanted to let everyone know I was okay, and apologise for the lack of updates and email replies this past week or so (I should be spanked or something... LOL!).

I've just been down with a nasty bout of the flu these past two weeks, but am thankfully much better now. Normal service will resume this week, I promise, so stay tuned!

Also, thanks to those who have entered my little birthday competition too... I've had about six or so entries, and will be announcing the winner next month, unless anyone needs more time for their entry, which I'm happy to allow if you just ask.

EDIT (30/10/11): Thanks for the kind wishes, folks... I'm on the mend at last! Also, I've extended the birthday competition deadline until November 24th, by request. Hope to be back in action real soon... maybe with another spanking story, too! :)

Birthday 2011: Happy Birthday to Me!

(not a lie)
Yes, today is Banjo's birthday!

To celebrate, I've posted a brand new, never-before-seen artwork "Birthday Suit Spanking" that I hope you enjoy, with musings on the whole 'birthday spanking' Trope, and would love to hear your thoughts on that tradition.

However, since I (sadly) won't be getting a birthday spanking for real this year, I've also decided to have a bit of fun with this blog, too, by running a little... well, you might call it a "competition".

The idea is simple: Banjo gets a birthday spanking!

You can write a short story (don't worry, I'm not talking fifteen pages here... maybe a page or two is all), you can make an artwork, personal audio message (if you're female, of course!) or even caption a picture ("Starstruck-style"). It can be a fictional character giving the spanking, a real 'celebrity' or even 'yourself' (again, if you're female! ).

The Rules:
  • Email me your 'entry' before the end of October.
  • Entries must be in the F/M spanking genre (i.e. no M/M, sorry!)
  • If you want to know anything specific (i.e. "what's Banjo's eye colour? How old will you be?") just ask!
  • When emailing an entry, please note if it is "public" or "private"; anything marked "private" will be only seen by me and nobody else, while anything "public" I will assume is okay to repost on this blog if I decide to do so.
  • My decision on the winner is final, and will be based solely on which entry I personally enjoy the most; this isn't a test of artistic or writing skill, so nobody should feel they can't enter for "lack of ability".
  • The prize is a custom-made, one or two character artwork by me. Yes, this is your chance to get a custom artwork from Banjo! This prize will be made after the contest is over, following discussion with the winner, and will be "delivered" by the end of November, barring unforseen circumstances. However, I reserve the right to decide if a request is "possible" within my artistic and technical abilities (i.e. specific likenesses are not possible, so no "me being spanked by my cousin Sarah... here's photos of us") but I will do my very best to accommodate the winner's request! And yes, if I really really love the winning entry, I may even allow "heresy" (non-F/M) art to be requested as your prize!!!
Despite having a "winner" who will receive a prize I hope they enjoy, this "competition" is really just designed to be a bit of fun; a different way to celebrate my birthday (and my blog opening), and to encourage more interaction with you, the site members and visitors.

I really want this to be enjoyable for everyone involved... so please don't worry or take offense if you enter and don't "win". I appreciate all of you - and your feedback and friendships - so much!

Top Commenters Widget

Some people may have noticed the new "Top Commenters" widget on the right-hand sidebar and wondered what it was for...

Well, this blog feature will keep track of those guests, members and followers who post lots of comments here, and display their usernames prominently in a list.

The purpose is to act as kind of  a "thank you" to my commenters, since your name appearing in the list will act as a link (or "backlink") to your own profile, blog or website (if you've set it up that way). More comments for me = more traffic for your own blog/sites!

It also should help me single out those active folks who are giving lots of feedback for any "VIP" special events or "instant prizes" I might plan in the future (hint, hint!).

Please note, however, that the widget only tracks recent comments, thus will count the "top commenters" as the twelve people commenting the most, recently (i.e. if you post twenty comments today, you'll "beat" someone who posted thirty comments over six months). This is something I'm trying to fix, but I can't promise... so comment often!

Art: Birthday Suit Spanking

"Birthday Suit Spanking"

Birthday spankings! One of those things I often hear/read about as an adult, but experienced or even saw happen. I've often wondered if it was due to my age (i.e. it used to happen but didn't when I was growing up) or location (it was an American and/or UK tradition, but not an Australian one), but I've always been curious about the whole concept.

I can't help but love the idea of getting a sound spanking for no reason other than "it's your birthday"... that seems so playful yet so unfair! And of course, me being me, in my mind a birthday spanking isn't just a "patty-cake" play-spanking, but a bare-bottom full-on smacking with proper sting! Maybe not as bad as when you've really misbehaved, but certainly enough to make waking up on your birthday knowing a celebratory bun-warming is planned a nervous butterflies-in-the-tummy moment!

I'm not sure what the origin or purpose behind birthday spankings are, either. In my mind, though, I think the best 'reason' for a birthday spanking - especially for older teens and adults - is as a "you're never too old" reminded. Sure, you may be twenty-two today, but a spanking still hurts as much! And just because you're "grown up" doesn't mean you're safe from spankings, either! It's a nice reminder, whether for those in domestic discipline relationships, those still living under "mommy's" roof, or just those in need of remembering that you're never too old for a spanking!

Of course, for the spankers... a birthday spanking has the additional possible purpose of "just a good excuse to spank the birthday boy" (or girl!). And what better way to celebrate than to bare the guest of honor's trembling bottom and spank it rosy red in front of all the party guests?

That was my inspiration for the artwork here: a fun party held in his honor, but for their amusement. He's stripped naked - perhaps for his celebratory spanking, or perhaps kept in his "birthday suit" (hence the title) for the whole party? Apart from that silly birthday hat, of course! And the spanking is given in full view of all the guests, of course, as they all sing "happy birthday" over the yelps and smacks of the paddle, perhaps chanting out his age with every swat. Whether in good humour or not, he's definitely going to kick and howl by the time they're done, no matter what his age!

Which leads to the point: how many swats should a birthday spanking be? The spankee's age? In total, or "on each cheek"? Multiplied by a certain number? How many "to grow on"? Should implements be used and does that change the number of swats? Bare bottom, naked or over clothes/underwear if there are "guests"? And should it be done in a "party atmosphere" (after the cake, perhaps?) or privately in the bedroom in the morning or evening?

What are your thoughts on this artwork's specific scenario, and on birthday spankings in general?

Flashback: Bedtime Series

This series of artworks is actually the oldest of all my work. It was one of - if not the - first works I ever did, and so is a bit "rough around the edges", especially compared to my newest pieces! I was still learning the ropes of how to do this when I made this set.

However, for some reason I know it happens to be one of my most popular works, and I've got several nice emails about it since I opened this blog, even though I wasn't even planning on re-posting it here. So, by popular demand... I present one of my first-ever attempts at spanking art: The 'Bedtime' series!

I don't know why, but I've always had a 'thing' for "bedtime spankings". Maybe it's the childhood urban legends/folklore of "crying yourself to sleep" after a good sound bedtime spanking, something I personally never experienced? Maybe it's the intimacy of a sleepwear-clad spanker and spankee? Maybe it's the idea of anticipation (a bedtime spanking is - at least in my mind - not really a "spontaneous" spanking, but a premeditated and preordained one). I really don't know, and would love to hear others' thoughts on the whole "bedtime spanking" concept, routines and effectiveness, from both the point of view of spankers and spankees.

But first, to the artworks... all nine of them!

Art: The Hairbrush Dance

"The Hairbrush Dance"
There's nothing like an impromptu "spankie dance" by a spankee shows that a spanking REALLY got through to them, I think.

To be in such hot-bottomed agony that you literally jump and prance about the room, frantically clutching and rubbing your stinging, burning buttocks, head thrown back back and howling to the heavens... that's the sign of a well-spanked young man (or young lady... shh!) and - so I'm told - a rather amusing sight for a spanker to watch.

Further, I believe there's few things better for producing a post-spanking "war-dance" than a properly-applied hard wooden hairbrush!

That's what I wanted to capture in this new artwork. Here, a satisfied lady watches as a young man performs what she affectionately terms "the hairbrush dance"; that is, hopping about while sobbing and rubbing his crimson buns like there's no tomorrow! For her, it's the clear sign that he'll remember this hairbrushing for a long time to come! For him, it's the point where he's oblivious to anything else in the whole world except the burning and stinging of his well-spanked buns. Two very different "emotional states"  in the same moment.

When I made it, I imagined that she was his "aunty" (possibly a "surrogate aunt" or even stepmother?) and had just given him a sound hairbrushing before going to bed (hence her somewhat "undressed" state and his nakedness)... this wasn't some totally on-the-spot spanking, but a measured approach to really setting his tender cheeks aflame! Her expression - or at least what I was going for - is one of something along the lines of "hurts, doesn't it?" or "you certainly felt that, didn't you?" or "I think that did the trick, eh?" etc.

What do others think of this scenario? How do you imagine their relationship, and their respective thoughts and mindsets now, post-spanking? And do you think this particular dance he's doing is unique to her hairbrush, or just an all-purpose "ouch-it-really-really-hurts" dance?

Oh, and yes... this art piece IS the origin of my seemingly much-loved "evil aunty" decorative image from this post! I liked how her character turned out so much, I wanted to use her to "illustrate" my blog too, but was saving this original pic to go with the approaching article series.

"The Wait" epub fixed... and also now in Kindle format.

Just a quick heads up to let folks know that I've finally "mastered" the EPUB ebook format, so I've fixed the downloadable .epub version of "The Wait" to correct a few flow and formatting errors. It should hopefully now display nicely on most e-readers and tablets.

I have also added a download for the Mobi Pocket (.mobi) format, which I believe is the primary ebook format used by the Kindle. While I don't own one myself, it seems a popular device, and the fact it uses a somewhat uncommon format - especially compared to EPUB, which is used by most Android and Apple devices - means I wanted to support Kindle users with future downloads.

In both cases, please let me know if you have any trouble viewing the downloads or getting them to work, since I plan to support these formats with upcoming stories and e-book items whenever possible.

Scenario (Spankers only!): Four School Suspects

You are in charge of discipline at a private school, and are tasked with finding out which student - out of four suspects - set off the fire alarm at lunchtime. What is your course of action?

Scenario (Spankers only!): Teacher's Dilemma

As a teacher, you are angered when a member of your class leaves a sharp pin on your seat one morning. Since nobody owns up to the deed, you decide to spank your ENTIRE class, one at a time. When you are about halfway through this task, the student currently being smacked tearfully owns up and admits their guilt. You have already spanked almost half the class, however! So... what do you do?

Monday 12 September 2011

Thank you! It's good to be back!

I just wanted to say a huge THANKS to everyone who's visited, posted comments, sent emails, and just been generally awesome!

I don't know what's "normal" or "good" for blogs, but I've had over 16,650 page views in the past week since I opened this site, a number that just leaves me stunned. I seriously had no idea that people even *remembered* me and my amateur attempts at artwork, let alone would still be interested!

I've also been amazed by the enthusiasm and kindness of other bloggers who've "plugged" my site, of their own accord, including artists, writers and bloggers I personally admire and enjoy, as well as - to my surprise - a lovely lady named Bonnie (who I've never met, spoken to or even visited, but who seems to be a *huge* spanking blog celebrity!) who very kindly linked to me totally out of the blue! That 33% of my visitors so far came from another blog (almost the same as from my old Yahoo Groups) is another reason to be grateful to you folks. I'm genuinely honored... thank you, all of you!

The fact that a couple have even asked me for design tips for *their* blogs is certainly an unexpected honor, too (when I opened, I was stressing out people would hate my "design" here, in fact!).

Reading everyone's comments this week has been a ton of fun, and really inspires me to continue this blog with new art, articles, and such. I am so happy - and relieved! - that people actually took the time to comment in such a fun and thoughtful manner; it really is inspiring for me to see folks engaging with my art and what I am trying to do here. Please know that I read *every* comment posted and email sent, and will be doing my best to reply to them (as needed) over the next few days, now that I'm "settled in" properly here.

As I said in my opening posts, I want this to be a place of discussion as well as to showcase my stuff; unlike some sites, there is no taboo against "grave digging" an old post here, folks! Anything and everything is fair game to post a thought on or continue discussing!

One thing I wanted to specifically single out was that I had no idea I'd get such a positive reaction to my little short story "The Wait", which I posted almost as an afterthought. I don't have the time to write much these days, but did it mostly as a bit of fun... so it was wonderful to hear it struck a chord with so many other people. Maybe I'll have to write more as well as making new art?!

Perhaps the best part of my "return", though, has been getting back in touch with so many old, long-lost friends. Just seeing those familiar names here welcoming me back really touched me in a way I can't describe, and getting in contact with so many of them again, some of whom I haven't spoken to in many years, made this whole undertaking worthwhile.

As I posted when I opened this blog, I was *very* nervous and hesitant about coming back into the public spotlight online again... the reaction (both publicly here and privately via email) has really convinced me that this was the right thing to do.

So, thanks again, everyone! Please keep the comments coming (and never think a post is "too old" to comment on).

Keep writing and discussing, and I'll keep posting stuff everyone can enjoy!


Art: A Tattletale Earns Him Seconds

"A Tattletale Earns Him Seconds"
This picture (which was the basis for my new blog site's "banner" and logo decorations) came about after wanting to do a new "school" scenario artwork. I wanted to feature both a teacher and a "schoolgirl", and decided to make the latter the "class tattletale".

The tattletale's uniform is admittedly more "adult store" than "real school", but it kinda fits my imagination of this as an exclusive college or private senior high, where the girls are allowed (and encouraged!) to dress as teasingly as they wish!

It also fits with my idea that his erection was likely caused by the mean little tattletale sneakily teasing him (crossing her legs so her skirt rides up, playing with her tied blouse, sucking on a pencil) every time he risked a glance over his shoulder from the corner... and then calling the teacher over in mock-shock when he was visibly aroused!

The boy in the corner, already soundly paddled for some unknown offense (perhaps related to his tendency towards "excitement", though I tend to think it was a more mundane and typical school offense, like forgotten homework or tardiness) is desperately trying to persuade the girl not to draw attention to his involuntary excitement... but of course, it's too late and she's not listening to his frantic "shushes" anyway!

The teacher, for her part, isn't impressed. She probably thinks he's aroused as a result of his sore bottom, the perverted little brat! Well, she'll give him something to be excited about this time... it's back in front of the class and over her desk for a second - and *much* harder and longer - paddling for him now!

And it's all that bratty little tattletale's fault...

Flashback: Hall Monitor Meanies

"Hall Monitor Meanies"
This week's "school theme" begun with my new piece continues with this very old artwork of mine, called "Hall Monitor Meanies".

Here, I imagined a boy assigned the chore of scrubbing the school hallway floor with a bucket and sponge (no mop, so he has to do it on his hands and knees). His short pants make this hard on his knees, of course!

The girls "supervising" his work are either all Hall Monitors or Prefects... or at least, one of them (probably the ponytailed girl on the right?) is one, and the rest are her friends who've come to watch the hapless boy scrub the floor in his lunch hour.

I tend to see what happened as follows: he was ordered by the girl(s) to scrub the floor, but when they saw he wasn't doing a good enough job, he was given a bare bottom spanking (perhaps tucked under the angry hall monitor's arm?) then and there! However, during that spanking, he knocked over his bucket, so now he's *really* in trouble! What do others think? Maybe he knocked the bucket over afterwards, since his vision is blurred with tears and he's not paying close attention due to his stinging backside? Or maybe one of the girls walking by *kicked* it over, just to get him in more trouble? What do others think?

With her hands on her hips, the dark haired girl certainly looks annoyed at his "clumsiness"! The blonde on the left is "helpfully" pointing out the mess he's made, while the pigtailed girl behind him is likely explaining either why or what should be done about it! The redhead looks quite amused by the whole "show" (perhaps she's another "new girl" like I suggested in "In Front of the Class"?)

Flashback: In Front of the Class

"In Front of the Class"
It's a "School Special" this week, to celebrate my never-before-posted "A Tattletale Earns Him Seconds" artwork's release!

In this old artwork, I wanted to capture the "ultimate nightmare" of a male student... a pants-down walloping by an attractive but strict teacher in front of his cute female classmates!

Here, he looks (I hope!) suitably "cowed" after a painful encounter with his teacher's heavy wooden school paddle, and is nursing his poor bare bottom with tears running down his face, as Miss points the way back to his (uncomfortably hard) seat.

Meanwhile, the two girls sat in the front row of the class are snickering and giggling to each other. The brunette on the left is a little in awe of having just seen their male classmate get paddled... or maybe she's just surprised at how hard he was paddled, or at what a big baby he's being about it? Or maybe this is her first day at this school, and her previous one didn't allow bare bottom paddlings? What do others think?

Whatever the reason for her amused surprise (she seem to be gasping "Wow!" here to me), her friend on the right (the blonde girl) is much less shocked and more smug: she's probably seen boys get spanked before (leading credence to the "girl on the left is new" theory?) and enjoys the show! Maybe she's pointing out to her female classmate that his reaction isn't unusual, nor is their teacher's severity with him? Maybe she's telling her not to worry, because only boys get paddled like that at this school? Or maybe she's just agreeing smugly "Yeah, that's what he deserved!"

Whatever the whispered discussion in the front row (a good place to sit in this classroom if one wants a "nice view" when a boy gets called up to be paddled by teacher!), do you think that this sobbing spankee is going to *ever* live this incident down with his classmates?
