I am thrilled with Barry's willingness to join me in this blog. I hope you have enjoyed his first two posts. Each of them were a complete surprise to me, and were written and posted without my review. I must share that we were sitting together a few moments ago when we read a comment about whether I tortured him or punished him when I was upset. He immediately logged in and replied without even asking me what I thought. I must confess that I was very moved by his defensiveness.
I also need to share my perspective. I could never torture anyone. It is very difficult for me to administer a punishment spanking to Barry. However, I have come to realize that he sometimes needs and wants to receive one. Is it painful to him? YES Does he want it? YES Would I stop if I thought he really wanted me to do so? ABSOLUTELY YES. I think Barry expressed it best when he said that everything we do is consensual. That is why I also allow him to erotically spank me.
PS ... Barry asked an interesting question about whether a response to a comment should be considered a "Post" with respect to earning a reward or being punished. I have mixed emotions. What do the readers of this blog think?
