This is a new bath brush I bought recently. I got it at one of the bath places in the mall. I couldn't pass it up...it's hard to find good wood brushes it seems. For some reason in '08 I didn't see a bath brush I didn't want to buy.
This one has a long handle, about 16 inches and a big round 'business end'. It feels pretty sturdy but of course it's not designed for the use I'll have for it. I smacked this thing against my palm and it really resonates. I think just the threat of it will get the attention of a naughty girl.
The handle is a little too long for over the knee use, but I have experimented and it can be done with care. I'm sure the prospect of bending over for a spanking with this brush will inspire good behavior (at least afterwords). I have to be careful with this one. It is a HUGE difference from my other hairbrush.
They had plastic ones that were almost identical but I think wood is just more traditional, ya know?

Last year I began what well may become a Christmas tradition in my spanking life (either that or I'll forget all about it). I took this picture of my tree decorated with many of my favorite and useful tools.
I thought it was a hoot. Some called me a nut...some called me obsessed....some called me weird....but NO ONE can call me a Scrooge!
This year I thought I would make the pic a little more interesting by adding a theme.
This season's theme?
I figured what the hey....trees are MADE of wood, right?

I like to think of Bettie Page as someone who brought the fetish world out of the shadows and somewhat into the mainstream. I think she had some of the best spanking pictures out there. Very artful and erotic and certainly some of the first.
Bravo Bettie, and you'll be missed.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Bettie Page, one of America's most photographed pin-up girls during the 1950s, died in Los Angeles on Thursday from pneumonia, her agent said. She was 85.
Page was a ubiquitous sight during the 1950s, propelled to stardom when she posed for Playboy as Miss January 1955. Soon her image was gracing playing cards, record albums and bedroom posters across the country.
She stopped modeling in 1957, retreated from the public spotlight and turned to religion. She enjoyed a renaissance of sorts in the 1980s, as a new generation of fans became obsessed with her legacy.
Her agent, Mark Roesler, said Page was admitted to a Los Angeles-area hospital four weeks ago. She never regained consciousness after suffering a heart attack earlier this month.
With her dark bangs, alluring blue-gray eyes and wide smile, Page cultivated an innocent girl-next-door persona. The one-time school teacher was nice, but clearly also naughty. Some of her photos featured spanking and bondage.
"Bettie Page embodied the stereotypical wholesomeness of the Fifties and the hidden sexuality straining beneath the surface," authors Karen Essex and James L. Swanson wrote in their 1996 book "Bettie Page: The Life of a Pin-Up Legend."
Page professed to be mystified by all the attention, saying she never felt particularly attractive and had to wear a lot of makeup to cover up her large pores. After she found God, she was initially ashamed of having posed nude.
"(B)ut now most of the money I've got is because I posed in the nude," she told Playboy last year. "So I'm not ashamed of it now, but I still don't understand it."
Bettie Mae Page was born on April 22, 1923, in Nashville, one of six children. She and two sisters were sent to an orphanage after her father went to jail and her mother could not cope on her own. Page later described her father as "a sex fiend" who started sexually molesting her when she was 13.
Page, armed with an arts degree with Peabody College in Nashville, did her first modeling work in the 1940s after moving to San Francisco with the first of her three husbands. After they divorced in 1947, she pursued modeling in New York. Photos from a shoot with Miami photographer Bunny Yeager ended up in the pages of Playboy.
The layout featured Page winking at the camera wearing only a Santa hat as she decorated a Christmas tree. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner described it as "a milestone in the history of the magazine," which he had founded less than two years earlier.
Later in life, Page was furious that Yeager made a fortune from the photos and never compensated her.
Some American lawmakers were not as impressed with her modeling abilities. Page was served with a subpoena to appear before U.S. Senate investigators trying to discover a link between juvenile delinquency and pornography. Page never appeared. Soon after, she completely disappeared from the scene.
After two other brief marriages failed, Page battled acute schizophrenia beginning in the early 1970s. Her comeback gathered momentum with the 1991 movie "The Rocketeer," based on a comic book where the hero's girlfriend was Page. Fan clubs and websites proliferated, and Page made a good living signing memorabilia at conventions. On the rare occasions that she gave interviews, she insisted that she not be photographed.
Page had no children. There was no immediate information about funeral plans.

This is my other school paddle. It has the same dimensions as the first one I posted about but the holes make it more formidable. The holes cut down on wind resistance and allow a faster swing. They also make it look more serious which can focus someone's attention on their behavior. A big part of discipline is mental, so sometimes you need an implement that gets the naughty one thinking about the reasons for the punishment.
I use this one on a clothed bottom because it can be pretty harsh. The holes are beveled but this paddle can still make a very strong statement on the bottom of a naughty girl. This paddle is for no nonsense discipline when used with determination. Or with a lighter touch it can be a good role play tool as well.
It's useful when the regular school paddle just isn't sinking in....

A belt whuppin' is one of the most traditional methods of corporal punishment.
My belt is a good tool for a number of reasons. For one, it's always available. It's right there on my hip and ready for use when needed. In fact just reaching for my belt buckle can have a positive effect on a young lady's attitude. You need something to hold your pants up, and a thick leather belt is a perfect way to always have a helper available.
I travel a lot and it's good to have a spanking implement that is an everyday object. I can bring it on the plane and not have to worry about it being noticed. It doesn't scream 'Spanking Implement' like a paddle does so it slides right by without a second thought. Even when I don't bring any tools on a trip, I always have my belt available...just in case.
It also is very effective. There is a reason the belt is a time-honored implement of correction. It gives a good solid stinging sensation and also makes a sound that gets someone's attention. A leather belt is supple enough to give a sound spanking but not give the thud of a big paddle. There is definitely an aura about the belt which adds to its effectiveness. "Do I need to take my belt off?" is a question that tends to send shivers and engenders cooperation.
All in all the belt is a great, domestic type tool. And the worried look on the face of a naughty girl when I reach for my belt tells me it's a formidable instrument of discipline.

One my good friends recently commented on Apple Paddle post and mentioned that a little hand would be cuter.
So my next Tool to be featured is my handy crop. It is very light and well balanced. It is actually quite easy to control and you can focus a good pop right where you want it. It's kind of a lighter implement, but if you flick the wrist just right you can make nice sting. The nylon shaft can also be used as a cane-type item if you want to go that way.
I think the little hand at the end is pretty neat. Though I have not really been able to leave a good little hand print on the bottom. That would probably take some practice.
Any volunteers out there?
