Barry and I arrived home after a glorious time in the southwest. We spent most of our time in New Mexico and Arizona. The natural scenery and monuments were absolutely beautiful, and we loved the Santa Fe area. It was wonderful to have time to just relax and explore without being on a time frame or having to be at any one place at a given time. We loved the flexibility of staying in an area until we were ready to move on. Traveling during shoulder season while retired is a wonderful gift that we don't take for granted.
An interesting side of the trip was Barry's behavior while we were away, especially in restaurants. I suspect it was exacerbated by the fact that we ate so many meals out (We did have a few hotels with small kitchenettes, where we could bring food in to heat up in a microwave and we did make some picnic lunches. However, most meals were in restaurants.) Barry's desire/need to stare at/ogle women's behinds reappeared ... BIG TIME. I think he also felt a bit safe in misbehaving, because most of our lodging was inexpensive facilities with limited sound-proofing. Because of that, there really were not any opportunities to administer a proper punishment spanking while we were away. I warned him that he would pay a price when we returned home, but I suspect he didn't think I would really do that (he was wrong ... tonight he will learn that I meant what I said).
However, this experience has made me wonder about the male fascination with the female behind. Is Barry unique in his fascination? (I suspect not); is he typical?; or is there a spectrum among males with this fascination? What do the male readers of this blog think? I suspect it is not a scientific sampling, since the readers obviously have an interest in spanking. However, I'd still like to hear your thoughts and perspectives.
It feels good to be home and to share something on this blog.
