Ask Gin – Question #1

This question is from spankee John: How common is it for people to cry during a session with you?  Do you find it’s more common for women or men to cry?

Questions&AnswersIt is equally common for men and women to cry during a session with me. It’s even more common if the spanking is for a real life reason.

Some people cry before the spanking even begins and continue through the session. This generally happens during goal oriented discipline sessions, especially when the spankee feels they have let me down or have disappointed me in some way.

Spankees often request to be “spanking to tears” – this is something I never can guarantee during a session. As many of you already know, crying usually doesn’t have to do with the physical pain of a spanking, it relates more to the mental state of the spankee.

NaturallyGin on Twitter

I am trying something new. I don’t have any form of social media in my personal life and apart from this Smiles and Spanks blog (Which I guess is considered social media?)

May Day

Today is May Day, also known as Beltane, Bale and a host of other names. It is the day that in some pagan traditions young women take a spanking (or a switching) in the name of the goddess as a fertility rite.

The early (Christian) Church tried to miss-associate this tradition with variously Satan or a demoness, but the old ways die hard and by the early modern period most local clergy turned a blind eye to such celebrations.

You can get taste of such goings on in the 1970 movie The Wicker Man, which apart from the ending is not a million miles from how some British villages still celebrate these things.

Later May Day was co-opted by the socialists because of its revolutionary origins and in some countries it is still known as Labour Day.

In the UK the public holiday is not until Monday, but wherever…
