Switching My Bottom On

Haron's I Hate Work Mug - from Abel and Haron's Spanking Blog Recently my life has been centred around – or reduced to – one thing: finishing off my thesis. Every morning I crawl to my desk (upright walking being impossible after so many hours hunched over the blanket of papers that covers every surface in the house) and begin typing inspiring things like “See mutatis mutandis Smith v. Iceland (2010) 1009 EHRR 12 at 17″. Gripping stuff.

It takes a while to convince my head to start functioning every morning. This morning at breakfast I was cuddling my cup of coffee, convinced I would never, ever be able to type one more word again. Even thinking about going back to work made my eyes water a little bit.

“I can’t switch my brain on,” I complained to Abel.

He looked with me with due sympathy. And then he suggested:

“Maybe you need your bottom switching on? Would that help?”

Oh, I thought, a spanking! Why, that would take me out of the thesis misery for at least 10 minutes! It might even wake me up! I nodded several times with great enthusiasm.

He led me upstairs – by the hand, holding it gently, comfortingly. He sat on the bed and drew me over his lap. I hadn’t got as far as wearing any panties yet (panties at 8am don’t really happen), so he swept up my house dress and started smacking my bottom. It was a light spanking – as comforting as a long hug first thing in the morning. There was just enough sting to create a little cloud of warmth, but not enough to make me regret accepting his offer with so much enthusiasm. Little by little, my bottom was switching on.

In the end I got a proper long hug. I think it helped to switch on my brain in the end, too.

    what a nice story!

    i can relate, heron, i finished a grueling thesis just over a year ago. i can’t believe all the stress and tears i went through for it, but now it’s sitting on my bookshelf, all nicely bound with my name in gold. there were a few spankings over it for me as well, i have to say. i could say that it was “worth it” … that’s definitely true since i wouldn’t have my degree without it. :) good luck with the rest of it!

    Well if it helps at all Haron, I’m sending you some cyber hugs and lots of positive *thesis writing* vibes too… It will all be soooooo worth it in the end. x x x

    What a lovely post! I’ve had several spankings of that nature myself this week, and they’re one of my favourite things.

    Best of luck with the thesis! I did an Mphil last year, and sympathise entirely.
