In this scene from Body Politics, Stephanie and Mark are at the Rod and Cane Society mansion, attending a fundraiser. He gives her a tour, which leads to the disciplinary chamber, a place where husbands sometimes take their disobedient wives. Stephanie has earned a spanking, which Mark did not have time to give her before they left. But since they’re in the disciplinary chamber, there’s no time like the present…
“I reiterate you are being spanked for the rudeness and disrespect you showed by disregarding the time,” he said, as much for his benefit as hers. The paddling was intended for discipline, not foreplay.
He squeezed hard, then smacked her cheek. She jerked and yelped. He slapped until her ass held its color, then switched to the paddle.
She must have anticipated and steeled herself against the blows, because she neither cried out nor flinched. But after three smacks on the same spot, she listed to avoid the paddle. He struck the other moon three times as well before focusing on stinging the crease where thigh met cheek. When she sat during dinner, the spanking would remain fresh in her mind.
She balled her hands.
Before long her ass colored cherry red, and he paused to rub her skin. She winced. “Is that it?” He could hear a catch in her voice.
“Not yet, kitten.”
The paddle whooshed through the air as he brought it down.
She cried out that time. Mark was confident Stephanie wouldn’t keep him waiting again. She might commit other acts warranting a spanking, but she would manage her time.
He rested the paddle against one glowing cheek.
Though he disliked causing her pain, his desire spiraled off the charts. His erection felt enormous in his pants. They would both be uncomfortable during dinner.
He struck each side smartly one last time, then rehung the paddle on the wall.
She wobbled when he helped her stand. Her mouth was bare of lipstick, her eyes overbright.
He hugged her and rested his face against her head. Her heart fluttered like a bird’s wings, and tiny tremors quivered through her body. “I’m proud of you,” he said.
She cuddled against him. “You spanked me hard.”
“Yes.” He hadn’t gone easy on her because they were at a social function. “Anytime I discipline you, it will be hard.”
