Disciplining Ford

Practice!

“If you want to be really good at something you need to make it a priority and work at it. You need to practise. This is true in sports, in music, in any craft or area of knowledge you wish to master.” Seemingly sound advice that DW is now applying seriously to the further development of her skills in application of the cane to my backside.

DW’s renewed enthusiasm for this implement appears to have arisen primarily as a consequence of the delays to my most recently scheduled punishment. Although a suitably private opportunity to administer this particular spanking did occur at the expected time, as it turned out, DW had by then succumbed to a rather heavy cold that necessitated its postponement… and hence a considerable extension of the time that I was required to spend “on notice”. Although DW was not well enough to perform the spanking I so clearly deserved, this didn’t prevent her from ensuring my heightened anticipation of the event by dictating that I spend the remainder of my time “on notice” 24×7 in white, day of the week panties.

Under the terms of our Disciplinary Agreement, the intent of this measure is to provide me with an incentive for submission to a scheduled punishment as soon as practicable, remembering also that lovemaking can only be at DW’s initiative during a period of notice. As no suitably private opportunity for use of the hairbrush or paddle appeared likely for some time after the postponement, DW resolved that it was time to further develop her competency in the use of a much quieter implement – enter the cane. We currently possess two relatively light canes, one being straight with a woven leather grip, the other being very slightly heavier with a traditional crooked handle. To date, DW has shown a marked preference for the former.

As you may have read in some of my previous posts, DW has often employed the cane to quite good effect as an adjunct to a spanking, but the real and lasting after-effects have been more a consequence of her skill and persistence in use of the hairbrush and Spencer Paddle. It seems the time has now arrived for a caning alone to meet DW’s Measures of Effectiveness in a way that demands less effort, less privacy and hence less delay between my infringements and punishments.

Our previous research of the web has identified two particular articles on the subject that have helpful to us – one is still to be found on Aunt Kay’s DWC site, whilst retaining a link to the other has been more elusive. At the time of writing, it can be found here (unfortunately without the diagram on another site that has only recently shut down). On the basis of this information, DW appears to have set the goal of achieving a nicely parallel set of individually identifiable tramline bruises from top to bottom of my backside that last for up to a week. Consistent with the advice in the articles above, her initial focus has been on accuracy, but I can also vouch for a progressive improvement in the power of her strokes.

So once DW’s cold had sufficiently improved, over the week that followed I was to be found with panties lowered and providing DW with the opportunity for some practice with a live target. After some experimentation, it’s become apparent that my positioning over the back of a chair facing away from the bed will provide DW with a totally uninhibited swinging space. After some 4 “practice” sessions, DW was finally content to release me from panties.
