Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

What a load of crop

Load of crop — see what I did there?

These damn pictures never, ever do the redness justice. Oh well.

Today was way overdue. Today was about reconnecting, about reawakening flesh and feelings that had been dulled with sadness. Today, I wanted to feel biting sting.

And what better for that than the riding crop?

After a long, very intense hand spanking, we commenced to the crop. He had selected a couple of other implements as well, but we both quickly came to realize that the crop was IT today.Β 

Once he got his rhythm, he was giving me hard slap-slap-slap flurries on one cheek at a time. He thoroughly covered the right cheek… then paused. I couldn’t help myself — I blurted, “MORE!!”

“Hey,” he said teasingly, giving me one little snap, “who’s in charge here?”

“Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaase?” I wheedled. He was kind and gave the left cheek the same treatment.

(I just realized how utterly perverse that is, saying that his beating each cheek equally was “kind.”)



It’s been such a crappy few weeks, but I think (I hope?) things are swinging back the other way just a little. For one thing, John’s custom-made oral appliance for the sleep apnea, the one he finally got last Friday? IT WORKS! He can sleep. He can breathe while he sleeps. He doesn’t snore, snort or gasp. And for the first time in I can’t remember how long, we slept in the same bed last weekend.

So this is very, very good. And… unless they reschedule, his heart surgery will be happening on March 24. Two months from now, which will go by in — pardon me — a heartbeat. S**t’s gettin’ real, as the kids say.

I wept in Steve’s arms today, long before we started anything. I needed to. But before we were through, my smile had come back. I’d lost it for a while.


Yes, I have post-play hair. πŸ™‚ So no, this is not my official “after picture.” But I will take some soon.

I was feeling so godawful depressed, I even deactivated my FetLife profile this week. Didn’t delete, just put it on hold. It’s a weird thing, but when I was on there lately, surrounded by kinksters and with nearly 1200 “friends,” I felt so alone. So I thought it was time for a break. I’ll probably go back soon, but I don’t miss the drama and trauma. And I certainly don’t miss hearing about parties I can’t attend. (sigh) John says someday, after he’s recovered, he gets some expenses paid off and has gotten a couple more raises, we’ll travel more, fly to those elusive parties that always seem to be anywhere but here. But for now… at least I got my itch scratched today. Or cropped, as the case may be.

It’s gym time.

  1. Must I really read “things are swinging back the other way just a little ” as a fitting caption to the picture it accompanies?!?
    And neither to the final picture, I'd say. πŸ˜‰

    I'm very happy to read about John's sleeping relief. Those 2 months will fly by and then he'll be like your restored superman once again! πŸ™‚

    That's great you got some much needed playtime today. You may feel sore longer than usual…HOPEFULLY! πŸ™‚

    Last Saturday I began the EXCEPTIONALLY cumbersome process to delete my FL profile. I HATE the fact they take 7 effing days to process it. I forgot to log out immediately after opting the delete so I don't know if they'll notify me when it's FINALLY completed. Once time before when I was undecided about deletion I logged back in before the 7 days were up and that immediately restored the profile and the whole process needed to resume from scratch. Honestly there's too much fighting and unpleasant visuals on there for a spanking only fan like me. I found I had so little interaction with “friends” on there unless it was me extending the contact or a plethora of creepers bombarded my inbox ad pictures with uncomfortable commentary so it's no loss to me.

  12. Jay — you know, I am not an expert on crops. The one I have isn't from any of the online companies; Steve and I were wandering through a kinky toy shop and found it there.

    KB — it IS nice. But even though he no longer snores, he still hogs the bed. πŸ˜‰

    Erica, that beautiful photo of you with that smile, seems to say things are getting back to NORMAL, for you and John. Although you were taking a chance with that RIDING CROP, it did make your voluptuous naked rear end, a nice shade of red. Just please take it easy, one step at a time, don't over load it, because of lost time with good spankings, And keep on SMILING, because that makes us 'SPANKO's happy for you. XXX Luv ya

    To the person looking for a crop
    Of course you can buy a crop at any number of adult shops and on line sites. I bought a couple that way but they were expensive and did not last long. Then I discovered Tractor Supply Company. They are a large chain of farm supply stores. Yes, farm supply but they carry a good line of high quality crops. I have three, in different lengths, I got from them and none have ever failed. And they are half the price you would expect to pay for junk at an adult shop. Of course they were designed for horses and will last forever on a female bottom.

    Oh, don’t worry about the social interaction and tractor supply. The last time I bought a crop there, it was a couple years ago, I had just started spanking a young lady who very much enjoys the crop OTK. I own two at the time but they were both too long to be used well in such close quarters. So, being a good top who always aims to please, I headed down to my local TSC to buy very short one. As expected, I found a good one and just the right length for the job. When I got to the checkout try to pay for it there was some short delay, somebody had to look for a price or something. Anyway when I got up to the cashier the girl at the cash register looked at the crop and said ” you should use that on me for making you wait so long”. When I use the new crop on the intended target for the first time it was already well broken in.

  30. I'm glad to hear that your'e doing better! I had been worrying since things were so tough for you. 😦

    I didn't notice that you deactivated your profile. I almost never sign into Fetlife for longer than to check my messages anymore. It's a strange feeling, and one that a lot of people have reported to me. It just doesn't feel right anymore. The community doesn't feel any different to me when we're all together in person, but somehow, online, I always feel disconnected and like things have just…changed.
    Looking forward to lunch next week! We need a catch up!

  31. Mouse — thank you. πŸ™‚ Fingers crossed for many things.

    Alex — yes, me too!

    I've already reactivated it, after being off for five days. I wish there was a way to visit and check things there as a guest, but they don't make that provision. But yeah… it's not the same as it was. I feel a bit lost and forgotten there, much of the time.
