Jenifer Jackson looked out on the street with despair. At 30 she was of passable looks with chestnut brown hair that hung straight to her shoulders and was finished off with a fringe. She lived in a small apartment with a few acquaintances and an endless shifting of their friends. It was all so predictable […]


If I was an American I would add the word ‘not’ after the heading, but then if I was an American I would probably have no idea what Bonfire Night is anyway. That’s the point really, Bonfire or Guy Fawkes Night is receding from British (English?) culture under the onslaught of Halloween (an even older […]


Recently I have been walking. I am aware that it is a wonderful pastime (let us not take our healthy, working legs for granted) but not necessarily unexpected. But I am becoming dizzy with happiness from it. I have, within my reach right now, two huge ordinance survey maps. I can reach my day sack […]


Absolution

11Sep15

The bell for matins shook Sister Mercy from her slumber and she yawned. That old hag Sister Mary was leading prayers today and she was half blind. Mercy doubted she would be missed and for a long moment pondered staying bed. Mercy scratched her rough-hewn cropped red hair and yawned again. When not in use, […]


Magic and more

11Sep15

I promised the publishers that I would plug Magic hard, so I could become a bit of a bore about this. I have thought about writing a bonus short story about some of the characters as an oblique way of pushing it. Until then here is a short article about spanking and its use in […]


Through the window Mullion County beckoned and Susan Bonneville almost forgave herself and left in search of Mary-Lou. They could have a soda down in Baker, maybe even two and then talk about boys. “Lucky you don’t have my Pa,” she would say when Sue told her troubles, “He would wale the tar out of me. […]

07May15

Spring has sprung and spanking is the air. But before the Catholics made it all about guilt and punishment, physical chastisement was seen as a sacred and magical act. In ancient Rome and Greece women would go to the temple to be spanked for fertility’s sake. Another ritual involved switching the bare bottoms of slave […]


An Easter Dare

03Apr15

This looks like a typical Czech bar and when you think that the Czech Republic has some very interesting Easter spanking traditions one wonders what is going on? Had it not been for the probable Czech setting I would have assumed that this is an undoubted fake, but who knows…? The file name was Easter […]


It was an odd kind of conversation. Some yahoo said he would take a bullet for Jesus. Why is it always guns and why would anyone need to? Then of course everyone chipped in until the one perky 22-year-old young woman said something about birthday spankings. Go figure. Where did that come from? “So you […]


Nun such thing

11Oct14

I saw the pictures above and remembered a girl I went to night school with. There was an article in the newspapers about the local convent school six form college and the fact that they still bought canes. The chief nun was quoted as saying something like: “We don’t really use corporal punishment anymore, we […]
