What a sting they can deliver. Sir makes His own. A lot of them have evil little holes in them...,ouch. Those enhance the sting for sure. But holy cripes, are they hot, huh?
I find my thoughts being seriously conflicting when it comes to paddles, though. Around here paddles are one of the main implements that Sir uses for punishments. It's a real love hate thing for me. Love the way they instantly put me into place. Love that they really get the point across. Love the marks that they can leave. Love how my body responds to them. But yes, ouch. Very very effective.
With that said, as much as I love/
- Remember to relax. Try not to tense up. It seems silly, but a well delivered swat always hurts more when we tense up or flex.
- Remember to breathe. Take nice and slow deep breaths during. Again, try to stay relaxed.
- Focus. Focus on your submission. Or on why you are being paddled to begin with. Remind yourself of all the things that a good paddling brings to both you, and your Dominant.
- Let yourself sink into what is happening with your body. Soon your body will start responding to the endorphins,and you will likely fall into subspace. Once you do, those swats are going to be a bit easier to take. There are a couple types of subspace, but in this case it is said to be caused by endorphins and adrenaline.
- Let your body react. I don't know if it's just me, but even during punishment my body responds to it. Doesn't matter my state of mind, say I just got in trouble, lectured and now spanked.. I will still find myself wet, and my body....very responsive and ready to be used.
- This one may not help everyone, but it helps me. I love the marks the next day. I love that every time I sit down I can feel the impact the paddling had on my bottom and my mind. I try to remember this as those first swats start to sting, I look forward to the marks after and the feelings that come with them.
