Leather, Whips, Cuffs & All Kinky Things

Crack!

Close your eyes and imagine a leather belt or cattails being slapped across your naked ass, the back of your thighs. Can you feel the burn? Did you jump just thinking about the pain? There’s nothing like the feel of a piece of leather spanking me – nothing. No paddle or acrylic piece or other plastic implement will ever take the place of good old-fashioned leather – and my preference? A thick, well-worn leather belt. Shudders… Baby, don’t get Submittign the strapme revved this morning. Tell me, what’s your favorite spanking implement?

When you were a kid were you disciplined by mom or dad after being a very naughty girl or boy? Were you told in no uncertain terms you were going to get a long and very hard whipping when you got home after whatever infraction? Hmm… Do you remember the anticipation? Do you remember the way you couldn’t think about anything else? When you got home, were your knees shaking and you were ready to just get the moment over with? Oh the dreaded but very effective belt. Powerful.

What about thick leather cuffs being wrapped around your wrists and ankles, your arms and legs being pulled apart and secured. Imagine the way his hand brushes down your back as he issues words of reassurance, thoughts about how disobedient you are. Think about the anticipation, adrenaline sweeping through your body as he lays out exactly how many hard whips you’re going to receive. Will your skin be tingling when he tightens the cuffs? Can you hear the sound of the leather creaking as he tugs the end through the steel loop? What are you thinking when he shows you the flogger or quirt? You know you’re going to scream in pain but you realize how very much you deserve the spanking. You’ve been a very bad girl after all.

Whoosh! Crack!

Mmmm… Utterly delicious and I’m in so much need. My naughty girl side continues to slide out more and more and thoughts about leather are like sugar plum fairies to me. Forget about Santa. I need a strong Dominant. Laugh with me. I suppose a submissive I will forever be. Right?

I couldn’t resist the title of the blog. I’m in a bit more of a playful mood this morning for no real reason other than I was in a leather shop yesterday. Me being me, I started thinking about some very kinky aspects with regard to the supple material. Tandy Leather happens to be a chain – I think nationwide – that sells fine leather and the equipment to create all kinds of crafts. The reason my mind with to the dark side – all pun intended – is simply that I’ve seen many a leather crafter on FetLife talk about how awesome the store is. There’s nothing fancy about the location in Richmond. The place is in a hole in the wall shopping center, the kind where even the Food Lion closed up.

Inside there are dozens of tables filled with various types and colors of hides. There are various grades of leather and of course each one is recommended for use for everything from chaps, purses, briefcases and clothes. Now you can imagine MY mind. I started Craig's Beltrummaging through the various stacks, wondering which could be used for leather wrist and ankle cuffs and floggers. I was thinking of the infamous quirt in truth. You remember I wrote about John Patrick’s favorite method of punishment? Yeah baby, the intense horsewhip wasn’t just used for plain ole discipline. Nope. Spankings with this puppy were quite painful and John Patrick was extremely good with his aim – WHEW.

So of course as I was standing in the store feeling up the various leathers, drinking in the amazing scent (don’t you love the rich fragrance of leather?), I scanned the perimeter of the store and really looked at the people who were selling as well as buying. Now, there are no stereotypes of those involved in the kink world, but my mind was reeling as I honed in on conversations and studied the various purchases. I’ve never personally worked with raw leather, creating pieces for anything – including for a business application, but of course this is like any other artistry, amazing. Personal touches are always important.

John Patrick talked about getting into leather for the sole purpose of creating cuffs and implements of discipline. He searched the Internet on a regular basis looking for various whips and floggers that would entice him. He also knows I love corsets and leather ones can cost a pretty penny. So he searched. He’s a very creative man so he was determined to learn the craft and try his hand. We’ll see if that ever happens – that I don’t know but I can only hope.

What I realized early on is there is a huge market for leather within the BDSM community. For anyone with the skills, I can honestly say you could make a lot of money. What is it about leather that’s so amazing – at least for this wicked girl? The feel of leather against your naked skin isn’t like anything else. I remember when I was younger, I actually had a suede bikini – yes, no laughing. The damn thing was HOT. I loved it and I still have it. You just can’t throw something like that away.

When I was older, leather was the outfit of choice to go out dancing. I have skirts and dresses in every color and leather doesn’t seem to go out of style. I have a red leather collar (at least for now) that was especially designed for use in BDSM play and John Patrick paid a pretty penny when he purchased. We talked about what he’d found, laughing over the costs. He mentioned finding the Quirt and in truth, could have purchased one strictly used for horses for a lot less. Once you place the label for BDSM use, the cost increases.

However, leather doesn’t have to be expensive for various aspects of play. You can go on your own personal scavenger hunt, scouring flea markets and yards sales and I bet you’ll find everything from leather belts to straps used for sharpening knives at your disposal. If you’re very handy and perhaps you own a sewing machine, you can certainly created straps etc. inexpensively and for just a nominal amount of time.

I’ll never forget the day John Patrick and I talked for the first time about using his personal belt. He’d whacked my ass with his hand a couple of times and I’d been allowedQuirt to see his collection of floggers, but we both knew the belt was much more personal. We talked about how disobedient I had been involving one pretty heady infraction and for days he reminded me what he was going to do. WHEW is all I can say. Even today there will never be another time that’s so all encompassing. Both he and I went into different headspace after and talked about the experience often afterwards.

So when I was in the store yesterday, bittersweet memories rushed into the back of my mind. After reflecting on the months spent, learning to become more obedient as we explored aspects of D/s and DD, I can tell you a hard whipping is truly good for a woman. Yep. I’ve said it before, we get off kilter and need to be re-centered and there’s nothing like fine leather to do the job. If you have the opportunity to go into a Tandy Leather store, stop, breathe in and take a look around. Anyone look familiar?

I hope you’ve enjoyed and wiggle in your seat or perhaps ask your husband or partner for an intense spanking this morning. You need it!

Kisses and spanks…
