The Prodigal Son

new story 3

Mr Craddock slumped in front of the television set watching the horse racing. A newspaper open at the racing cards was at his feet. Nearby was a mug of steaming tea. He gripped a half-eaten bacon sandwich. He was in his element. A peaceful Saturday afternoon. What could be better?

Then, his wife entered the room, wiping her hands on her pinafore as she moved. The look on her face warned Mr Craddock that his peace was about to be disturbed.

“It’s Pete,” she said, clearly agitated, “He’s just been on the phone.” Mr Craddock’s eyes shot heavenward: what now? What scrape had his son gotten himself into this time?

“What now?” he spluttered through a mouthful of sandwich. His obvious irritation did nothing to soothe his wife’s nerves.

“He wants to speak to you,” she was clearly worried.

“What is it now? Is he still on the phone?”

“No he’s coming round. He wants to see you in person.”

Mr Craddock swallowed hard. This could mean only one thing. “He wants to borrow money again. He already owes me a fortune. I’ve been paying off his debts forever.”

His wife hopped from one foot to the other. “He says he’ll come right over.”

Mr Craddock sighed, he would miss the four o’clock race at Chepstow now. He had money on a horse in that one. Pete was 24 years old and had been nothing but bother since he left school. He was in and out of jobs, in trouble with the law. Oftentimes he was drunk about the house. He seemed incapable of keeping a civil tongue in his head. Mr Craddock had all but thrown him out of the house five months ago. Pete now lived in some sweaty bedsitting room on the other side of town.

“I’ve had enough, mother,” Mr Craddock always called his wife “mother” it was some kind of family tradition. “What can I do? I’ve tried everything with him. Do you remember I even spanked his backside for him. When was that? Last year? Doesn’t seemed to have done much good.” He rested back in his chair and eyed the clock on the mantlepiece. With luck he would just have time to catch the 3.45 race at Folkestone.

He did, but he missed the four o’clock and all the rest of the racing that afternoon. Pete had something important to discuss. It was, he reckoned, a matter of life and death. His life might never be the same again.

Mr Craddock eyed his son suspiciously. The lad’s fair hair was dirty, he had bags under his eyes and his usually fresh face was grey and lined.

“Dad, Dad,” he spluttered once his mother had left the two of them alone in the living room. “I have to talk to you.” He couldn’t meet his dad’s eye and that fact alone made Mr Craddock fear the worst.

“Is it money again. Are you in debt to loan sharks?”

“No, Dad, no,” Pete tried to laugh off the suggestion but his face remained grey and solemn.

“The police, are you in trouble with the law?”

“No, Dad, no.”

“Drugs. Is it drugs?” Mr Craddock was losing patience, were they about to play a game of Twenty Questions?

Again the answer was negative.

“Oh for pity’s sake, tell me what’s going on,” Mr Craddock had a short fuse.

On the trip over Pete had rehearsed what he wanted to say but now he was confronted with his Dad the words had gone. He babbled for a while getting more and more flustered as his Dad’s temper deteriorated.

At last he managed to turn words into sentences. “Look Dad,” he said and pulled a wad of banknotes from his pocket, “Here’s the money I owe you. All of it.”

His Dad flushed, his heart beat faster, “Where did this come from? Did you steal it.”

Pete laughed weakly. “No Dad, no. I’ve got a job. A proper job. At Tilotson’s. In the office.”

His dad was not convinced. “Since when? Is it a proper job?”

“Yes, Dad I’ve been there three weeks. I got my first pay yesterday.” He handed the money over and Mr Craddock counted it, scrutinising each banknote as if it might be counterfeit.

“Thank you son,” he whispered. He was flummoxed. Never in a month of Sundays did he expect his son to hold down a proper job.

His son wriggled in his chair. Clearly he had more to say and just as clearly he wasn’t sure how to say it. So he jumped in with both feet. “Dad, I don’t know how to say this. I want you to do me a favour.”

Mr Craddock sighed. He knew this was too good to be true. There was some kind of trouble after all. He leaned forward in his chair waiting for the worst. His son collected his thoughts and continued. “Dad I’m very sorry for everything I’ve done. I’m sorry for all the trouble I’ve caused you and Mum. I’m sorry for all the debts. I’m really sorry for the trouble with the police. Things are going to change from now on.”

Mr Craddock’s cheeks flushed with embarrassment. “It’s alright son.”

But Pete had not finished. He apologised once more for all the heartache he had caused. All the bad things he had said to his Dad over the past years.

“It’s alright son, it’s alright.” Mr Craddock was not a man who liked to share emotions. That was another of the family traits.

“It’s not alright, Dad,” Pete wrung his hands together. “I’m not sleeping. I don’t eat. I’m making myself ill.”

Mr Craddock stared at his son. The young man’s furrowed features were testament to that. He couldn’t find words to comfort his son so he babbled, “It’s alright son. You’ve paid me back. You’ve given me the money.”

“It’s not alright, Dad,” Pete was pleading. “It’s not. I’m full of guilt. Guilt for all the things I’ve done. The way I’ve treated you and Mum. I can’t get away from the guilt.”

An uneasy silence descended between the two. Mr Craddock looked at the clock and wondered if his horse had come home at Chepstow. Eventually, Pete spoke once more, “Dad I want you to do something for me? Please Dad.”

Mr Craddock held his breath, what was troubling his son. “Yes, what can I do?” he forced himself to ask, while wishing Pete would just go home.

“Dad,” Pete spoke more clearly than he had up to this point. “Dad, I want you to help me get rid of this guilt.”

Mr Craddock winced and waited. After a pause Pete continued, “Dad I want you to spank me. Like you did those times before.”

His Dad shook his head from side to side, like a horse often does when it is trying to clear its head. “Oh come on son,” he blustered, hoping to hide his embarrassment, “There’s no need for that.”

“But there is Dad, there is,” Peter interrupted. His insistent tone unsettled Mr Craddock. “I have to get rid of this guilt. It’s the only way.”

His Dad sat bemused. He had spanked Pete many times over the years, even quite recently. The last time was shortly before he insisted his son move out and find a place of his own to live. He hadn’t liked doing it, but nothing else had worked. Not talking (arguing really) nor grounding him. There weren’t that many punishments that a dad could inflict on his son; especially not one who was in his early twenties. The over-the-knee spankings had truly been administered as a last resort. Mr Craddock was a little surprised to find that they appeared to have worked.

“Oh, I don’t know son,” he was still uncertain. The request was so unusual it could almost be called bizarre. He shook his head again.

“Please Dad. I know you love me. Please do it. Let me get rid of all this guilt. Use Mum’s hairbrush, like you did last time.”

Mr Craddock did love his son. Very much indeed, but he had no words to express that love. But he liked to think of himself as a man of action, someone who could make a decision. Well, he told himself, if that’s what Pete wanted then so be it. And if he got a move on he might still catch the last race at Folkestone.

“Right,” he said climbing from the chair. “I won’t be a minute. You’ve still got time to change your mind.” He left the room leaving Pete sitting on the couch breathing heavily.” Moments later, he returned clutching a large, heavy hairbrush.

“Are you sure,” he said, hoping that Pete had come to his senses and changed his mind.

“Yes Dad,” his son replied confidently. “I deserve this.”

Mr Craddock picked up an old straight-backed wooden chair and set it down in the middle of the room. He sat down and brandishing the brush ordered, “Come here, bend over my knee.” Pete rose from the couch, took a deep breath and then crossed the room. He stood to his Dad’s left, hesitated for a moment as if debating something in his head. Then, he rested his hands on his Dad’s right knee and eased himself down.

Pete was easily a couple of inches taller than his dad but he fitted well across the older man’s lap. He was in the classic over-the-knee spanking position. He was able to rest the palms of his hands on the floor in front of him and behind his toes just about scraped the carpet. Like that his bottom was raised at an angle to receive the swats from the hairbrush.

Mr Craddock wasted no time. He raised the brush and slapped it into the seat of Pete’s heavy trousers. Then he did the same thing again and again. They were moderate smacks; not too light and not too severe.

“No Dad,” Pete protested, “You’ve got to do it properly. Like last time.” He wriggled his hips and his dad let him get to his feet.

“Are you sure?” Mr Craddock could still not quite believe his son’s attitude.

“Yes Dad. I deserve this. I’ve got to get rid of the guilt.” Then without waiting for his dad’s response Pete unbuckled his belt. Seconds later his trousers were at his ankles and his white shorts snagged against his knees. Once more, he eased himself across his dad’s knees.

“Well,” Mr Craddock gripped the heavy hairbrush in his fist, “Just remember I’m not going to stop until I think you have been punished properly.” He caressed Pete’s left buttock with the head of the brush and then tapped gently to get an aim.

“Thank you Dad,” Pete wheezed, “I really deserve this, for the way I treated you and Mum. And for all the trouble I brought you. I am really, truly sorry.”

His dad raised the brush high, “You will be,” he said to himself as he realised the last race of the afternoon was now over. He pounded the brush into Pete’s round, firm buttock and was delighted to see the dark pink imprint left behind by the brush. The hiss of air escaping Pete’s clenched mouth was equally satisfying.

Mr Craddock set about his task with a will. If a job was worth doing, it was worth doing well. That was a motto that had run in his family for generations. In no time both buttocks glowed dark pink. Pete’s hands clutched at his dad’s legs. It was the only way he could stop himself flailing about and falling to the floor.

“Well I hope this is doing you some good,” Mr Craddock rebuked his son, “A boy of your age taken across his dad’s knees for a sound spanking with a hairbrush. And on the bare bottom too,” he intoned as he walloped the brush across Pete’s quivering cheeks. Soon no square inch of flesh was untoasted.

“Sorry. Sorry. I deserve this,” Pete almost shrieked. The pain was intense. It was far worse than the last spanking dad had delivered. “Oww, ouch, arghhh,” he grimaced. He bum felt like it was blistered. Despite his resolve to take the thoroughly-deserved spanking without fuss, Pete could not control his body’s natural reflexes. His body twisted and turned. His legs kicked out behind him. His head nodded up and down. His eyes smarted almost as much as his backside and tears soon trickled down his face.

“Thank you, thank you,” he hissed through gritted teeth. “Ouch! Owww!”

Now, Mr Craddock turned his attention away from Pete’s bottom and attacked the backs of his thighs. That sent his son into spasms of pain. Heat seemed to be rising from the naked flesh. It was so hot Mr Craddock was sure he would be able to warm his hands.

It was time to wind down. But not before he took the brush on one more circuit. He pounded the peaks of the young man’s mounds. Then he went for the topside and by now Pete was breathless, gasping for air. So his dad hammered the undercurves, on the most sensitive sit-spot. Finally, he returned to the thighs.

Mr Craddock was almost as breathless as his son. His shirt clung to his back with sweat. Rivers of perspiration ran from his armpits. It was definitely time to stop.

“Stand up.”

Pete did not need telling twice. He bounded to his feet and hopped about while at the same time rubbing hard at his buttocks. He didn’t care that his cock and balls were bouncing up and down close to his dad’s face.

“Get dressed.”

It took Pete longer to get his shorts and trousers back on than it had to lower them. As he reached towards his feet the flesh across his buttocks stretched sending fresh waves of pain through his body. At last he was once again fully dressed. Colour was returning to his pale face and his breathing was now more regular. The intense pain in his backside was already easing and soon would become a constant throbbing. Before long it would just be a dull ache, but the pain would return over the coming hours every time he sat on a hard surface.

Mr Craddock felt sheepish. Even now he couldn’t fully understand what had happened. “How do you feel?” he asked and immediately felt what a stupid question that was to ask. In the circumstances.

Pete rubbed the seat of his trousers ruefully. “The guilt is all gone. I am so sorry for everything. I will be good from now on. I promise.”

My story took place in 1986 and I am happy to report that Pete kept his promise and from that day on became both a model citizen and a very loving son.

Duncan and Uncle Henry

Duncan wheeled his bicycle up the pathway of No. 17 The Avenue. He let himself in and parked the bike in the hallway.

“Duncan!” It was his Uncle Henry and he sounded angry.

Duncan had expected this. He was twenty-two years old and in his final year at university. Things were not going well. His grades had plummeted and he had skipped a number of classes. If he didn’t buck up his ideas, he might fail his finals.

It was a woman of course. That was the distraction. She was a mere slip of a girl. Almost boyish. Most people probably wouldn’t have given her a second glance on the street or at a club. But Duncan was smitten.

“Duncan!” It was his uncle again. His anger had risen. “In here! Now.”

“Here” was the room Uncle Henry called his “study”. In fact, it was an ordinary living room, or “reception room” as the more snobbish neighbours called their version. Duncan took a deep breath, wiped the palms of his hands against the legs of his trousers and turned the handle of the door.

It was a small room, sparsely furnished. There was a small leather-topped desk in one corner, a sideboard, a single worn blue vinyl armchair and one dining-room chair. Incongruously, in another corner stood a wicker basket. And, inside were two yellow rattan school canes.

The only window in the room overlooked the back garden. A heavy green curtain was drawn across it blocking out most of the sun. A single bulb in the ceiling, partly obscured by a shade, provided the only light in the gloomy room.

Duncan had been in this study before: many times. He probably knew every inch of the room. He definitely knew how this encounter with Uncle Henry would play out.

Uncle Henry launched into a prepared sermon. He read out the young man’s latest grades. “You have a C+ for one,” he intoned. “Is that better or worse than the previous grade?”

He already knew the answer and Duncan knew that he knew. Duncan also knew this little charade would have to be endured before Uncle Henry was ready for the finale.

The university student shuffled his feet in embarrassment and stared down at the plain carpet. He had been through this routine many times previously with Uncle Henry, but he never got used to it. It was like being up before the headmaster at school. And the outcome would be the same too.

Uncle Henry also knew about the skipped lectures. Duncan had no choice. He admitted the lot, he was guilty as charged. There was no mitigation he could offer, except for his relationship with Sheila and Duncan was certain Uncle Henry did not want to know about her.

Uncle Henry wasn’t Duncan’s real uncle. He wasn’t a blood relation. Henry was a middle-aged man Duncan had met during his first year at university. There had been trouble then too. Like so many eighteen year olds let loose at university, he had no self-discipline. He got drunk, took drugs and partied. It would be a miracle if he survived the first year. Then along came Uncle Henry. He took care of what Henry called the boy’s “moral welfare” and turned around the young man’s life.

Uncle Henry rose from the seat behind the desk and strode a couple of steps to cross the room. Duncan stood motionless but his eyes followed the rather squat man as he gripped the vinyl armchair and swivelled it so that its back was now facing into the room.

No words were spoken between the older and the younger man. None needed to be. They both knew what was going to happen now. This wasn’t the first time this scene had been played and it wouldn’t be the last before Duncan finally graduated with his degree.

Satisfied that the chair was in a suitable position, Uncle Henry continued his journey across the study and rested at the wicker basket. There were two rattan canes waiting in front of him. To an inexperienced observer they looked identical. Both were a little over three feet in length (not counting the curved handle) and as thick as a pencil. But closer inspection revealed one was denser than the other; it would pack a considerable punch when whipped down at speed across the haunches of the young man standing before him. And more so on this occasion, since Uncle Henry intended to thrash Duncan on his naked bottom.

Uncle Henry flexed the rod between his two hands. Despite its thickness and density, it was a wickedly whippy cane. Duncan was still rooted in front of the desk, but he observed the older man swish the stick through empty air. The student had felt the sting of that cane across his backside many times in the past, but the swoosh it made as it flew through the air still intimidated him.

“Are you ready?” It was a strange question from Uncle Henry. It sounded as if the young man had a real choice and might reasonably reply, “No, I don’t think that I am. May we postpone this beating for a month or so?”

Duncan knew better than to smart-mouth Uncle Henry. He swallowed a “Yes, Uncle” and awaited further instructions.

They came immediately. “Stand by the chair. Up close.” Duncan took a deep gulp of air into his lungs and took up position.

“Trousers down please.”

He was wearing rather unfashionable cheap clothes. They used to call them “leisure trousers” or “sweat pants.” They were mostly polyester and had elastic at the waist. Duncan pinched the waistband at his hips and guided the trousers down over his buttocks and let them rest on his thighs.

Uncle Henry wheezed, exasperated. “All the way down. Down to your feet.”

Duncan blushed scarlet. Uncle had seen his bare bum and his cock and balls numerous times, but this part of the ritual caning always embarrassed the young man.

Soon the trousers were at his feet. Duncan’s snug-fitting canary yellow briefs did little to disguise the size of his private parts. His penis was still soft but it bulged against the tight cotton as if struggling to escape the confinement of his briefs. The briefs also emphasised the flatness of Duncan’s stomach. He was a very lean boy. He never worked out at the gym but he cycled everywhere. His muscular torso and slim legs were a testimony to that.

“Pants down,” Uncle Henry waited patiently. He tapped the cane against his own right leg and watched the young man before him slide the pants over his hips and then down his tight buttocks until they rested at his knees. His cock stirred as fresh air wafted against it. It was awake, but not yet ready to crow.

“Bend over.”

Obediently, Duncan leaned forward over the back of the vinyl chair and gripped the seat cushion. It was old and worn and had the faint aroma of body perspiration. It was impossible to sit on this chair if the room was hot without leaving a puddle of perspiration behind.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Uncle Henry gripped the cane in his right hand and took up position. His preferred method of caning was to stand about three feet to the young man’s left (a cane’s length) and place the rod across the centre of the bottom, with its tip resting on the furthest cheek. Then he would withdraw the cane and arc it up before returning it at great force. That way Uncle Henry could ensure that the swipe would hit both buttocks equally. It was an effective technique and ensured the lad on the receiving end endured the most painful caning. It was method borne out of much experience.

Uncle Henry took his aim. There was the tiniest nick of a razor blade on Duncan’s crack where he had shaved that morning.

Swipe! The cane rose and fell and a pink line appeared immediately across the centre of Duncan’s buttocks. He mouthed a silent groan and screwed up his eyes. That hurt. A lot. But Duncan was no stranger to the lash of the cane. It would take much more than that to make him holler.

It was not an especially warm day, but perspiration already soaked the back of Uncle Henry’s shirt. His heartbeat raced and his breathing was heavy.

Swipe number two hit a fraction below the first. Duncan bunched up his fists as the pain registered first across his bum and then travelled up and down his legs. Huff, huff, huff, he wheezed.

Uncle Henry leaned over the young man. From his vantage point he could already see two deep welts had formed across the lad’s hairless cheeks. They were turning from a snowy-white to crimson. The back of Duncan’s neck was also scarlet, but when Uncle Henry leaned over further he saw the twenty-two-year-old’s face was deathly pale.

Uncle Henry stepped back and let fly with the third stroke. Duncan choked down a cry which triggered off a dry cough. Hack, hack, hack. He cleared his throat and clung on tightly to the chair’s seat and waited for the next cut to land.

Uncle Henry admired Duncan’s tolerance. He could take an almighty thrashing and show very little reaction. That didn’t mean it was not hurting the boy. It was. The agony was terrific. Sometimes it felt like the middle-aged man had pressed a hot wire into his cheeks.

Uncle Henry fondly remembered the first time he had ordered Duncan across the back of this same chair. It was six strokes for missing his curfew. It wasn’t even six-of-the-best; the strokes were lightly laid on, but Duncan roared when the first cut hit him and jumped up from the chair dancing up and down rubbing his backside furiously. What a palaver, Uncle Henry had thought. And Duncan still had his trousers and pants on.

Uncle Henry took aim again. Duncan felt the stick touch the underside of his cheeks, just where they met the thighs. “I’d better stay perfectly still,” he thought to himself. If he jumped about there was a real possibility the slash would miss his bum altogether and crash into the back of his legs. The agony would be unendurable if that happened.

Uncle Henry was an expert and he landed his stroke right on target. It was the “sit spot.” The weal that was forming across the bottom of the cheeks would be tender for some considerable time. Duncan would feel it each time he sat down, especially on a hard surface.

Number five was aimed right at the top of the cheeks, just at the base of the spine. Duncan sucked in great draughts of air. Despite his fortitude, his feet stamped up and down. That was the most painful cut yet. Sweat poured from his body. His black wavy hair was so damp it looked as if he had stepped from the shower.

“Steady boy. Keep still.” It was a kind instruction, not a barked order. Uncle Henry had a great affection for Duncan. He didn’t despise the young man. This was not a vengeance beating. The student needed the guiding hand of an older man, one more experienced in life. This caning would do Duncan the world of good. Uncle Henry knew without a shadow of doubt that was how Duncan felt too.

The sixth and final cut struck parallel to the previous five. Duncan repeated the military dance. His arse was on fire. He wanted to get up and rub away furiously at his rear end. But, he was well versed in the caning etiquette. He must first wait for permission to rise.

Uncle Henry was in no hurry. His own breathing was returning to normal and his heartrate was slowing. Quietly, he returned the cane to its place in the basket.

“All right Duncan. That’s over. Well done. You took that well. You may stand up.”

The student hauled himself to his feet. The agony was already easing, but he could not resist kneading his cheeks with some vigour. It didn’t help. But, within seconds the pain would turn to a powerful throbbing and very soon that would become a warm glow. Some of the welts were very tender and the pain would be reignited if he touched them. But, even now, only a minute or so since the beating stopped, the worst was over.

Unbidden, Duncan pulled up his briefs and trousers. He stood before Uncle Henry, his shining eyes cast down at the floor, awaiting the next move.

Uncle Henry could not look the boy in the face. He waved his hand in the general direction of the door and said, “Go to your room.”

Seconds later, Duncan stood in front of the bedroom mirror, poking his bum at the glass. There were six deep cuts, perfectly positioned parallel to one another running from the top of his buttocks to the bottom. Uncle Henry was a craftsman.

Gingerly, Duncan rubbed the palm of his right hand across the buttocks; they were still warm to the touch. His penis saluted and stood rock hard at forty-five degrees. Duncan stepped out of his trousers and briefs, kicked off his shoes, dealt with his socks and then tugged his shirt over his head. He stood completely naked.

Outside the door he heard floorboards creak. Then he knelt on the bed, spread his legs wide and buried his face in a pillow. He was ready to receive Uncle Henry.

Warren’s awakening

Warren Hunter looked out the bedroom window anxiously. Any moment now his uncle would call him down to the sitting room. It would be a spanking for sure. He couldn’t complain. He knew he deserved everything that was coming to him.

Warren was in turmoil. He was so ashamed. How had things come to this?

He had been sent to stay at Uncle Alfred’s by his mother. She said it would be temporary; a “cooling off” period. But, he knew his uncle’s reputation; his arse would get a “warming up” first.

The row and the tears had been the final straw. He had been giving his mum a hard time for years. He was nineteen years old, there was no way she could control him. He didn’t have the words to explain what was going on in his head. Warren knew there was something wrong with him; but he didn’t know what. He had a crappy job in a supermarket; at home he rowed with everyone; his mum, his two older brothers and even the neighbours. Dad had walked out years ago leaving mum to cope with the kids on her own.

“Warren! Get down here!” Uncle Alfred was at the foot of the stairs. The teenager hesitated. He knew what would happen now. What choice did he have? Take a spanking or not; those were his options. If he did he could stay at his uncle’s place and try to sort out his life. If he didn’t; he’d be sleeping on the streets.

Warren was no philosopher; he wasn’t a deep thinker. If someone told him he was a “pragmatist” he wouldn’t know what they meant. He just knew he had to go through with this. He’d never been spanked before. Hell, he thought, a spanking, how bad could it be?

Slowly he padded down the stairs to find Uncle Alfred in the front room.

A dining room chair had already been placed in the centre of the room. Taking the teenager by the arm, Uncle Alfred led him to the chair and sat down, leaving Warren to stand as his uncle pushed up the sleeves of his own shirt. Then Uncle Alfred leaned forward and removed the bedroom slipper from his right foot.

A shiver went through Warren. His resolve to accept the spanking was evaporating. He wanted suddenly to hang back, to plead for mercy, promise to do better, to do anything if Uncle Alfred would just not spank him.

His uncle was not a pretty sight. He was in his forties and had a large belly that in his present sitting position flopped across his lap. His legs were fat and when his uncle parted them slightly he provided an ample platform for his nephew to drape himself over.

This might be Warren’s first-ever spanking but his uncle was a veteran. He had developed a ritual over many years. Quietly, he spoke, “Take down your jeans.” And when his nephew stared back with alarm, he added reasonably, “You won’t feel a thing with them on.”

Uncle Alfred squeezed the bedroom slipper in his fist and watched the nineteen-year-old fumble with the waistband of his jeans. He didn’t seem able to get his fingers to work. Slowly the fly buttons were opened and the denims slithered down his thighs and rested at his knees.

“Please God,” he prayed silently, “Don’t make me take down my underpants too.”

Uncle Alfred shifted his vast buttocks on the hard chair and straightened his back. He was almost ready to get on with the job.

“OK, over here,” Uncle Alfred slapped his knee to indicate Warren should bend over. It was a simple command, but one his uncle expected to be obeyed. Warren stood his ground, unable to move. Then he took a half step back, as if he intended to run away.

“Doh!” his uncle wheezed. Then, he took hold of the teenager’s arm and forcibly pulled him down across his knees. To break his fall, Warren placed both hands on the carpet in front of him. His legs were left dangling behind him.

Uncle Alfred wrapped his arm around his nephew’s waist. “Keep your legs straight, raise your bottom higher.”

Warren twisted and turned until he was positioned to his uncle’s satisfaction: head low, bottom high. He could see his uncle’s feet and the ugly carpet. Dust tickled the back of the teenager’s throat

“Spread your legs more.”

Warren gasped as he felt Uncle Alfred grip the elasticated waist of his pants. The thought, “Oh, no! He’s going to pull them down!” flashed through his mind. But instead his uncle smoothed out the cotton of the boy’s underpants, eliminating all creases. Soon, the tight gleaming-white pants fitted the buttocks like a second skin.

“Give me your hand,” it was a final instruction. Uncle Alfred took hold of his nephew’s wrist and turned the boy’s arm up his back. No matter how hard Uncle Alfred spanked him and how much it hurt, Warren was trapped across his uncle’s knee. He wasn’t about to go anywhere until Uncle Alfred said so.

“Right young man this is going to teach you a lesson.”

Then, Uncle Alfred gripped the slipper tightly and put it to work, smacking Warren’s bum soundly and briskly. The teenager winced the moment the first slap hit home. Uncle kept up a momentum. Slap! Slap! Slap! Three on the left cheek: Slap! Slap! Slap! three on the right. With great expertise, he concentrated on the very tender spot where the bottom joins the thighs, dealing out crisp smacks.

Warren screwed his eyes closed with pain each time the slipper crashed into his bum. He was a lean lad and didn’t have much padding in the buttocks area.

One smack followed another as Uncle Alfred put the slipper to use. The pain of the whacking took the teenager’s breath away, but he resolved to remain silent. Warren wriggled as the slipper connected time and again with his buttocks. Uncle Alfred spanked him thirty times or more; then paused to get a tighter grip on the slipper in his hand and then let fly again.

Uncle Alfred hadn’t said how many strokes of the slipper Warren was to get and after a dozen or so, the boy was finding it hard going to stick to his resolve and remain silent.

He let out silent yells as the next three slaps fell in rapid succession, all landing on the same sensitive “sit spot” on the right cheek.

Uncle Alfred set about his task with a will, but he too was silent. The only sound in the room was the thud, thud, thud of his slipper as it hit Warren’s bum.

And so it went on, slap after slap. He was making a good job covering all over the target area. Some spanks went high, some low. Now on the left cheek: now on the right. Warren could feel his bum heating up with the punishment. It would be red raw by the time Uncle Alfred had finished.

Then, without warning, he took hold of the top of Warren’s pants and pulled them down, not too far, but enough to expose both cheeks. The boy grunted. Uncle Alfred resumed the slippering, perhaps twice as hard as before.

Warren raised his head and flinched in pain with every blow. He could hardly catch his breath, it hurt so badly, but he bit his lip so did not make a sound.

On and on he went, spanking Warren’s bare arse. His body was making involuntary movements with pain, but his uncle still had the boy’s arm pinned.

Warren’s shoulders and head jerked high as each blow from the slipper struck his bum.

His eyes were watering, but he told himself, “I will not cry, I will not cry.” But, he knew he wasn’t going to be able to stand much more without breaking down.

The humiliation was intense. There he was a nineteen-year-old man draped helplessly across Uncle Alfred’s knee, trousers at his feet, bare bum in the air, getting spanked like a little kid. His face was as scarlet as his battered bottom.

To Warren it seemed like an eternity, but the slippering lasted less than three minutes.

“Now, boy, you can stand up.”

In considerable pain, he rose from his uncle’s knees. Instinctively, his hands shot to rub his blistered backside. But, connecting his hands with the raw flesh only increased, the pain, it did not relieve it.

Warren was breathing hard, he was sweating badly and his eyes were full of tears, but he was not crying. His resolve had won through.

He twisted his body to inspect the damage; his buttocks were a deep cherry colour.

Gingerly, he pulled up his underpants. Uncle Alfred remained silent. He had delivered his punishment and as far as he was concerned it was all over. Until the next time.

Warren bent to his ankles and recovered his jeans. His hands were shaking, but he managed to button up the fly and buckle his belt.

“Go to your room.”

Warren took the stairs two at a time and crashed through the door into his bedroom. Within seconds his jeans and pants were back at his ankles. He pointed his bum at the dressing table mirror and traced the contours of his buttocks with his fingertips. The pain had mostly gone, but he found it would return if he pressed into his bony globes. He did and it felt really good. Warren had never looked at his bum before; not closely. It was almost totally bald; there were some wisps of hair in his crack that he’d never noticed before.

It was quite small. He could cup a cheek in the palm of one hand. There wasn’t much “give” either. Unlike his fat uncle, Warren was lean and wiry.

The teenager leaned forward and thrust his buttocks at the mirror. Without warning his cock stood stiff. Whoops. It always did have a mind of its own. It had embarrassed Warren on numerous occasions.

He lay on the bed and stroked it, reliving in his mind the past ten minutes. He imagined what he must have looked like draped over his uncle’s lap; bum held high. The more he pictured the more his todger ached.

Somehow, he knew this wasn’t the end of it. There’d be more spankings before he could demonstrate he was mature enough to be allowed home. Or would there? Maybe next time it would a more severe punishment.

Warren closed his eyes and saw himself bent over the back of the old worn green settee in the living room. Uncle Alfred stands behind him swishing an old-fashioned school cane. Warren’s trousers are at his feet; his pants at his knees. His bared buttocks are raised high. The teenager’s head is low, he is almost chewing the cushion.

Uncle taps the cane gently across the centre of the cheeks. They vibrate gently in anticipation of the searing pain to come.

Uncle lifts the cane high and brings it crashing down.

Back in the bedroom Warren shot a load all over his tight flat stomach.

A snapshot from my Mind’s Eye

new story 3

otk pyjamas bed sting (72a)

This isn’t a real photograph, it’s a snapshot from my Mind’s Eye. A memory I can see in my head of something that really happened, quite a long time ago. The boy with his pyjama bottoms at his knees and his bare bum pointing at the ceiling is my cousin Mark. He’s over the knees of his father – my Uncle David – and, quite obviously, getting his backside spanked.

I’m not in the picture, but I am in the room. I suppose I must be standing where the camera is. I’m waiting my turn. It’s me next. Once he’s tanned Mark’s rear end until it’s the colour of a tomato, Uncle’s taking me over his knee.

Mark wears pyjamas. Even back then that was deeply unfashionable. I’m eighteen and Mark’s even older; no older teenage boy would be seen dead in jim-jams. Still, I suppose that’s Uncle David for you.

“Go upstairs and get changed for bed,” Uncle David barked before sending us up. So, Mark’s in pyjamas. Not me, I’m stripped down to my underpants. Very small briefs, if memory serves. Yellow – or possibly red – cut so tiny they hardly hold my cock and balls. My buttocks were small and soft back then, but I’d bet the lower cheeks were bare to the wind.

I was staying with Rich Uncle David for the end part of the summer. We called him “Rich” because, well he was rich. If not rich exactly, then certainly wealthy. He was my mum’s brother and he lived in a huge house in a suburb of Brocklehurst. He ran an import-export business. Correction: he owned an import-export business. Yes, he was seriously wealthy.

He was a man of action. What he said, happened. Not just in his successful business but at home as well. He had quite old-fashioned attitudes, even for the times. I vaguely knew that he was an advocate of corporal punishment and that he was not adverse to taking any one of his sons over his knee; even Kevin, the eldest who was knocking on twenty-three.

My dad was nothing like that. He was quite easy-going. I genuinely think it would never have occurred to him to have my pyjama bottoms down. Looking back, compared to Mark me and my brothers got away with murder. Dad was away at work a lot so Mum bore the brunt of our misbehaviour. We must have driven her to distraction.

When Uncle David came to pick me to take me to his home, Mum made a big production number telling him, “If he causes trouble, you have my permission to spank him.” He nodded sagely. Did I see them share a secret smile?

“Ha! Ha!” I laughed uneasily. “Spanked? Me, at my age. You’re joking of course. Nice one. Ha! Ha!” I didn’t say that last bit out loud. Deep down I wasn’t so sure.

When we arrived at The Avenue, his posh street in Brocklehurst, Uncle David was quick to tell me his rules. They weren’t so bad to be fair. I wasn’t allowed to go in the back room which was kept for ‘special’ and what he called his ‘study’ was out of bounds. I assumed this was some office that he used for his business.

There was other stuff about being on time for meals but since I had no intention of going hungry during my holiday I had no worries about this. Also on the list was something about no alcohol or smoking. Before then I hadn’t known he was zealous about these things.

It was a few days after I arrived – a Saturday – when me and Mark went on the town. Brocklehurst was far from Sin City but there were some pubs and at least one half-decent ‘disco.’ By chance we met a couple of Mark’s old school pals in the High Street and together we went of to some dive of a pub. I still remember its name: The Three Fishers. What a stupid name for a pub. What exactly are ‘Fishers’? Fishermen, I understand.

But I digress. We had a couple of pints of larger and checked out the local talent. This being The Three Fishers, the talent came at a price. We passed on that and slowly made our way home. Uncle David was waiting for us. It wasn’t late, but he was the only one still up in the house. We were nowhere near drunk but Uncle David could not be fooled. His nostrils flared. He could smell alcohol and tobacco at a hundred paces.

“Drinking. Smoking,” he announced. It wasn’t meant as a question and it wasn’t even an accusation, it was a matter of fact. I had completely forgotten Uncle David’s prohibition. It came back to me in a rush. “Shit!” I didn’t say that verbally, I’m not that stupid. Mark flushed bright pink and mumbled something I couldn’t make out.

Uncle David scowled, “I don’t believe it.” In my nervousness I stifled a giggle, he sounded exactly like Victor Meldrew, a grumpy fellow in a tv comedy who had that as his catchphrase. Uncle David chided, “Did I not make myself perfectly clear?” he leaned into me. I could smell his breath; definitely no illegal smells there. I was as incoherent as Mark. The correct answer, of course, was: Yes, you could not have been plainer.

“Bah!” Yes, he actually said, “Bah!” like he was some character in a children’s comic like the Beano. At least he didn’t wave his fist and go, “Grrrrr!” What he did do was to say, “Go upstairs and get ready for bed, I’ll be up in five minutes. Make sure you’re ready.”

In silence, we trudged upstairs. In the bedroom Mark quickly pulled his t-shirt over his head. Then he unbuckled his belt. He noticed that I was not undressing. “Hurry up,” he exclaimed, “We don’t have much time, he’ll be up soon.”

I stood my ground, bemused. What was happening? What was Uncle David going to do? I suspected I knew the answer to that but my brain would not compute.

“Quickly,” he snapped, “You don’t want to upset him.” He stepped out of his jeans as he spoke, “We’ll get extras, for sure.”

I gaped, “What exactly is he going to do?” Mark stared as if a moron had just spoken.

“A spanking,” he breathed, and in case I hadn’t understood, he repeated, “He’s going to spank us.”

“Don’t be so …” I started to tell him not to be an idiot before the expression on Mark’s face cut me short. We had been in the sun most of the day but the tan that was developing could not disguise the blanche. “Get undressed,” he hissed as he pulled on his pyjama bottoms and knotted the drawstring.

I wanted to argue, to tell Mark, “No way am I getting spanked. You have got to be kidding. I’m eighteen. You’re nearly twenty for Christ’s sake.” I didn’t say a thing. The look of complete resignation on my cousin’s face warned me to be silent. He knew what he was talking about. Uncle David had decided. Nothing we said, nothing we did could alter the course of events. I unbuttoned my shirt and slipped out of it.

I was folding my jeans to put them neatly on a chair when the door slowly opened and Uncle David stood in the threshold. He was dressed – as he nearly always was – in trousers that were part of a business suit, and a white shirt and tie. It could have been Monday morning at the office, not late on Saturday night. At first he didn’t come into the room, he glared at Mark, surveying him from the top of his unkempt dark hair down to the bare toes of his feet. Mark squirmed under the gaze. Then it was my turn for his fierce stare.

I was about the same height as Mark, but much fairer. Where his body was beefy and stocky, I was wiry and thin as a rake. When you saw us together you wouldn’t immediately take us for blood relations. My body shivered although it was a humid summer’s night. Instinctively I cupped my hands and held them in front of my privates. As I did this a corner of Uncle David’s mouth rose.

He came into the room and without a word, he took hold of my elbow and steered me across the floor. “Stand by that wall,” he grunted. I stood sullenly. “You,” he clicked his fingers at Mark, “Come here.”

Uncle David sat on the bed. It was even for those days an old-fashioned thing with metal springs and frame. He leaned back as far as he could, “Bend across my knee,” he ordered. I could see Mark was no novice to this. Immediately he loosened the drawstring of his pyjamas and let them slip. Then, in a single continuous movement, he placed one knee on the bed and spread himself across Uncle David’s lap so that his whole body was stretched on the mattress. He found the single pillow and buried his head in it.

I had a ringside seat and watched Uncle David carefully take hold of Mark’s pyjama bottoms and gently guide them further down my cousin’s legs. He left them around the knees. Then he brushed the pyjama jacket up Mark’s back so that it was well away from the target area. Mark was bare from the lower back to the knees. His bottom was raised at an angle over Uncle David’s lap so that it pointed towards the ceiling. Uncle David rested his left hand in Mark’s back to hold him steady: now he was good to go.

And away he went. I’d never seen a boy spanked before, I had no idea what should happen. Instinctively I could see Uncle David knew his business. The imprint of his palm was reproduced time and again across Mark’s bare bum. The red palm prints merged into one continuous dark-pink blotch. That quickly deepened to red. That bottom was on fire. If I leaned forward I could probably feel the heat lifting off the scorched flesh.

Each cheek of Mark’s bottom was a little bigger than Uncle David’s spread hand. The cheeks were well-defined with a nice overhang and there was nothing extreme about their curved shape. He was a normal, healthy, teenager: his bottom was as firm as only a teen’s could be yet had a degree of puppy fat.

Smack after hard smack kept coming for at least five minutes until suddenly Uncle David stopped. Mark lay breathing heavily. His bottom glowed. I thought he must be in great pain. My stomach turned. It looked like Uncle had finished with Mark. Now, it was my turn.

“Up,” Uncle David grunted. “Stand by the wall.” I watched Mark roll himself off his dad’s knees until he toppled onto the floor. He sprang to his feet, tugging his pyjama bottoms up as he steadied himself. “Leave them be,” Uncle David barked. “They can stay at your feet for a while. To remind you what a naughty boy you’ve been.”

Mark deliberately avoided my eye as sulkily he shuffled, penguin-like, across the room. As he passed me I saw his eyes blazed. “You’re next,” Uncle David gestured at me. “Come here. Take his place.”

Even now after so many years if I close my eyes I can see it like it’s happening right now. I hesitate, my heart is thumping and I imagine I can see a lump in my bare chest go in and out. Uncle David taps his right knee, he is encouraging me to bend over it. I remember how Mark climbed on top of Uncle David. He pulled down his own pyjamas. I am too, too what? Shy? Embarrassed? Ashamed? I don’t want Uncle David or Mark to see my cock and balls. I cannot pull down my pants. I just stretch myself across Uncle David with my face down in the scratchy Army-surplus blanket.

I cannot see, but I guess my bum is angled over Uncle David’s knee in the perfect position for his hand. My cotton briefs are so tight they dig into my crack. I feel a movement in Uncle David’s body and his right hand slowly caresses my right buttock. Gently. It feels as if he is smoothing any creases out of my pants.

Fool! Of course, he’s not doing this. He preens for a moment or two and then firmly grips the elasticated waist of the pants. I wriggle my hips in protest but he takes no notice. It takes maybe three tugs to have them over my buttocks and at my knees. I am now face down almost totally naked. I close my eyes tight. I cannot believe this is happening. I tell myself it isn’t. I’m just having one of my weird dreams.

Uncle David speaks, “Your mother tells me you have been needing this for quite some time.” He is caressing my now-bare bum. “You’ve had this coming.”

I think, but do not say, this is unfair. It was Mark’s friends who wanted to go to the pub. I only went because Mark wanted to. It’s not my fault. Don’t blame me. I keep quiet. It’s not my place to argue. Uncle David is in total control.  I feel muscles in his body tighten. My buttocks clench, trying to protect themselves.

He slaps his calloused hand cross my backside. Slowly at first. One slap on the left cheek, another on the right. It stings. Then he does it again – and again. Gradually he builds a head of steam. His hand whacks my behind with great force. Quickly. Hard. I gasp. My hips sway. My bum bucks. He grips me tightly at the waist. All the time the slaps rain down. No not rain, thunderstorm – they thunderstorm down. Or do I mean hail?

My bum hots up. I grab the pillow and chew on it. This is the first spanking I have received but obviously it is not the first Uncle David has administered. He is an expert. His hand pounds my mounds. The noise of palm across naked flesh echoes around the almost empty bedroom, like machinegun fire.

The heat in my bottom rises, from hot to something near boiling. My body is twisting and turning and my legs kick out, it’s like I’m trying to swim off Uncle David’s knees. He holds me tighter. “No, you don’t,” he growls. “You’re going nowhere. Not till I say so.”

I can’t see because I’ve still got my face in the pillow but I can feel every square inch of my buttocks has been toasted. All the way from the base of the spine, over the hillocks and into the undercurves. The ache is terrific. I can’t take much more of this. Then he starts on the back of my thighs. That hurts twice as much, no three times; no more. This is agony. I bite down into the pillow. Now, I can’t breathe. I raise my head and gasp for air. I’m starting to choke. Uncle David’s spanks harder still. I’m yapping like a little dog.

Uncle David scolds me, “I hope I’m getting through to you. This is how it’s going to be from now on in.” My eyes moisten. My head butts the pillow. Uncle David grips my waist even tighter and the pounding of my posterior continues.

You might wonder if this really happened. It could be a dream, a fantasy perhaps. A fetish fantasy. Naughty eighteen-year-old boy has his underpants taken down by Uncle before he is held across the old man’s knees for a bare-bottomed spanking. That might be some person’s fantasy, but not mine. This happened. This was for real. I think.

Caught in their underpants

Mr West was in for a shock when he opened the front door to his house. Discarded on the floor was a white school shirt, obviously belonging to his eighteen-year-old son. Further inside was a green-and-yellow striped tie, this time abandoned across the back of a chair. A pair of grey trousers lay in the doorway between the hall and the living room.

What on earth was going on here? But, Mr West had a sneaking suspicion. He knew his son was untidy but he had never behaved like this.

It was the middle of the day and Richard should be at school, but instead he was at home and his clothes were scattered across the house.

Voices coming from the boy’s bedroom confirmed his worries. This was disgraceful, Mr West fumed, he had a girl in there. Without hesitating he marched through the house, approached the bedroom, turned the handle and threw open the door.

And there was Richard and his pal Des, dressed only in their white cotton underpants.

The boys blushed scarlet and Mr West coloured up too – with rage.

What was going on here? Mr West was speechless. He didn’t ask the obvious question: he was too afraid to hear the answer. Two eighteen year old boys in the bedroom in their underwear, in the middle of the day: you didn’t need much imagination to work out what it was.

Sheepishly, they stood, like naughty schoolboys caught in an act of misbehaviour. What had they been doing? If he had arrived five minutes earlier what act would he have caught them in? Or maybe they hadn’t yet started and he needed to be five minutes later to discover the full horror.

Mr West found his voice, but he still didn’t ask the pertinent question. Instead, meekly, he inquired, “Why aren’t you two at school?”

Both boys stared at the carpet and shuffled their feet in embarrassment.

Mr West looked at the two lads: they could easily be mistaken for brothers. They were both not much more than five feet seven inches tall and slim. They both had the severe short-back-and-sides haircuts demanded by their school. Otherwise they were quite hairless, but Mr West could see from the bulges in the front of underpants that puberty had arrived. He tried not to notice that Richard’s pants were a little too tight, while his partner’s were slightly too large.

The boys remained silent, still blushing profusely.

Mr West didn’t know how to handle this situation. He was sure he had caught the boys committing an act of abomination.

To give him time to think, he ordered the boys to get dressed.

Five minutes later they stood miserably in the living room, dressed in the white shirts and grey trousers of their school uniform. Neither boy had bothered to put on his tie.

Richard and Des had been friends forever. Mr West knew they did everything together; but he had never thought for one second they also did this kind of thing.

He had a predicament; he had already decided to give his son a sound thrashing. He was eighteen years old. It wasn’t too late to beat the sin out of him. But, what about Des: Mr West had no jurisdiction over him. Should he send him on his way unpunished? For all he knew this boy was a devil who had seduced his own son into this act of immorality.

Mr West was not a man of the world. He could never talk to his son about sex and he had no words to express his disgust at the boy’s behaviour. He knew what the boys had been doing when he came into the house and he knew that they knew that he knew. Perhaps that was enough. Richard would know why he was being thrashed without having it spelt out to him.

“Why are you not at school?” Mr West returned to safer ground. He knew they had truanted and had been caught red-handed. Tearfully, they confessed this crime.

Mr West would use this as his excuse for a spanking but Richard would know he was really being punished for something altogether more serious.

But what was he to do about Des? Then Mr West had an idea. The boy’s mother was a widow and she had enough to worry about without having to deal with her son’s immorality.

“Des, what would your mother say if she knew what you had been up to today?” The boy continued to stare at the floor, hoping he wasn’t really expected to answer this question.

“Don’t you think she would be ashamed?”

Still no sound from Des.

“Do you want me to tell her?”

A response at last, “Oh, no please Mr West, please don’t tell my mother.”

Mr West had hoped he would say this. Now he could put his plan into operation.

“I am going to thrash the pair of you to within an inch of your lives. And, Des I will not tell your mother.”

The boy sobbed quietly. Richard, who until now had scarlet cheeks, turned a deathly white.

Mr West removed a stout wooden paddle from a hook on the kitchen wall, where it was kept as a constant reminder to his sons of the penalties for misbehaviour.

“Now boys, stand behind the couch.” Unnecessarily for there was only one, Mr West pointed to a double-seated couch, furnished with dark blue cushions. It was a perfect height for eighteen-year-old boys to bend across to offer up their backsides for punishment.

Miserably, Richard and Des shuffled to the expected spot. Mr West was an expert in corporal punishment; he had a great deal of experience beating the bottoms of miscreant boys. He knew that boys hated to be thrashed, of course they did, but Mr West fervently believed they benefitted from the experience. He also believed in the ritual of corporal punishment: not for him the taking of a boy across his knee to be followed by a succession of swift slaps into his upturned bottom.

No, Mr West was a man who liked to take his time. He began with a short lecture, “I am going to beat you slowly and thoroughly with this paddle. You may cry out, but if you fail to maintain your position and present your bottom properly for me you will earn yourself additional penalty strokes.”

Richard gulped and felt sick. He had been thrashed by his father several times before, he knew what to expect: it would be agony and the bruises might last for weeks, but the ordeal would not kill him.

He wasn’t so sure his pal Des could take the thrashing so well. This was not helped by the appalled look on Des’s face. Richard knew his friend was never spanked at home but he had been beaten in school; there was hardly a boy who hadn’t, but seeing the look on his face made him realise that what was about to happen was going to be nothing short of dreadful for the boy.

With his little sermon out of the way, one by one the boys were instructed to prepare themselves.

“You first Richard. Please stand closer to the back of the couch and then take down your trousers and underpants.

Des watched mesmerized as Richard went over to the couch back. He admired how well his friend’s buttocks filled out the back of his grey worsted school trousers. He stared, his throat drying up, as Richard slowly unzipped his trousers and then pulled them down until they could fall to the floor around his ankles.

Then equally as slowly, he placed his thumbs into the waistband of his underpants and pulled them down over his slim hips, past his thighs and as far as the knees.

“Now, please lean forward and bend over the couch. Place your hands on the seat cushion and keeping your legs straight push your head down as far as it will go.”

It wasn’t too difficult to comply with the order. He was just the right height.

“Legs further apart, please.” Des’s heart skipped a beat as he saw his friend’s buttocks tighten as the flesh stretched. The bum was so small, but perfectly formed. One swat from the big oval-headed paddle would easily cover both cheeks at once.

“Now, you please Des.” Richard was staring face down into the soft cushion of the couch so could not see Des make his preparations. But, he would have been proud of his friend.

Guided by Richard’s example a moment ago, he had his trousers and pants at his ankles in seconds. Then, in one move that would have delighted a professional swimmer diving into the pool, he was positioned alongside his friend, with his bared buttocks exposed to perfection for whatever Richard’s father had in store for them.

Both boys were aware of the other’s close proximity but they tried to ignore one another, instead staring ahead awaiting the first stinging swat from the plastic paddle. Richard could smell the sweet breath of his friend and recounted the taste of peppermint he had enjoyed moments before his father burst into the bedroom.

Mr West continued with his ritual, “I expect you to stay in position until I am finished. If you move I will repeat the stroke. Understood?”

Silence, except for the heavy breathing of two eighteen-year-old schoolboys about to have their bared bottoms blistered.

“Richard, do you understand?”

“Yes.”

“Yes, what!”

“Yes, Sir!” came the required response.

“Des, do you understand?”

“Yes, Sir!” said boldly. Richard was feeling very proud of his partner-in-crime.

Mr West took up position. In all the years punishing boys he had never been presented with four buttocks at the same time. Usually, he dealt with troublemaking teenagers one at a time, but for reasons he couldn’t quite articulate he thought it was most appropriate for this crime for the boys to be dealt with simultaneously.

z used paddle bare couch sting

The first swat of the paddle on Richard’s naked flesh was wickedly loud and accompanied by a pitiful: Owww!

Des shrieked loudly and was admonished by Mr West, “Shut up and take it like a man!” as the first of his swats landed and felt as if it had burned a hole through both his bum cheeks.

Both boys were screeching with pain after the third whack roasted their buttocks and enormous welts were beginning to rise. Each boy had the pattern of the heavy paddle emblazoned across his scorched rump.

It went on like that relentlessly until each boy had received a dozen swats. Not one inch of their exposed flesh escaped; from the top of the buttocks near the base of the spine across the poor boys” globes and into their thighs. Neither boy had much flesh in their rear end and the paddle soon raised dark blue bruises.

So it was that two eighteen-year-old friends were thrashed to “within an inch of their lives.” Perhaps, not literally so, but the flogging would have a profound effect on them, but not in the way Mr West might have wished. Instead it brought them closer together than he might have feared, even in his worst nightmare.

What strange times they were

new story 3

z used solo blazer badge cravat (1)

“Take down your trousers,” he rasped. “Underpants too.” I shuffled uncomfortably. The room was cool, even though outside it was a fine spring afternoon. “Bend over my knee,” the vicar scrunched a large leather-soled bedroom slipper in his right fist. He wriggled his buttocks on the worn wooden armless chair and parted his legs a little. “I am going to spank you on your bare bottom,” his eyes blazed.

I was one of three lodgers at the vicarage – the vicar called us “paying guests”. We were all up at the university in the nearby town. Without hesitation, but also without enthusiasm, I set about slipping the braces that held my trousers aloft over my shoulders. The trousers were loose at the waist and I hardly needed to unbutton them before they slipped easily over my thighs and down to my shins.

My underwear was the modern type with drawers that were separate from the singlet. If I had worn the traditional “combinations” I should have had to strip off all of my clothes to be able to offer the vicar my bared buttocks.

I undid the drawstring of the underpants and guided them down. I hesitated, The vicar frowned. I knew what I was expected to do. This was not the first time I had been across the vicar’s knee. It wouldn’t be the last. All we lodgers got it. This Sunday it was my turn. We were on a kind of rota. It happened as regularly as clockwork. Every week. Winter, spring and autumn. The university was closed in summer.

The vicar had rules. Lots of them. We were expected to obey. Without question. People did in those days. He used to inspect our university work as well. If an essay scored less than a B-plus, out would come his whippy rattan cane. But more of that later.

I was standing a couple of yards from the vicar, my trousers and underpants at my shins. He twisted that slipper in his hand and tapped it against his right thigh. It was his way of saying, “Get on with it young man.” And I was a Young Man. I went into the vicarage aged nineteen and left three years later when I graduated with my degree from university.

I took the hint and shuffled two small steps forward so that I towered over the seated vicar. At the time he seemed to me to be an elderly man, but thinking back he was probably only in his forties. He was tall and stocky. He had spent many years before the war as a missionary in Africa, thinking nothing of trekking tens of miles through the bush to take the word of God to the heathens.

I suppose he was what we used to call “a Muscular Christian”. He certainly had muscles, especially in his right arm and upper body, as I can attest. A spanking from the vicar was an ordeal to be endured.  I lowered myself across the vicar’s knee. His thighs were as thick as tree stumps and I was a few inches shorter than he was so my body made a good fit across him. I stretched my arms forward and planted the palms of my hands firmly into the thin rug. I could feel the heavy wooden floorboards beneath.

My legs dangled behind me and the toes of my feet did not quite reach the ground. Of course, I could not see this myself but like this my bared bottom was presented across the vicar’s right thigh at a perfect angle to receive the slipper. As usual, he slowly and gently tucked the tail of my shirt away from the target area so that I was naked from the shoulder blades to the shins. Then, with his left hand he gripped me around the waist and he lent his forearm into my back. I was pinned, face down across his knees. My head low, my bottom high, ready in the traditional spanking position.

I clenched my buttocks. I always did this. I supposed that this would toughen up my cheeks and defend me – at least a little – from the onslaught of the vicar’s slipper. It was as if my body was taking up some natural protection. I imagined my bum was as tough as rubber.

It was only many years later that I discovered this was in fact the worst stance I could take in such a situation. Tensing the muscles did not lessen the pain, indeed it did the exact opposite. I read in a reputable medical text book that the best way to endure pain is to relax the muscles, not tense them. I forget the reasoning now. Also, one should try to ignore the pain; that is think about something else.

Oh well we live and learn. I clenched my cheeks and stared at the worn red-patterned rug beneath my face. I felt the leather sole of the slipper tap not too gently across the centre of my right cheek. That was the vicar finding his aim. Seconds later it was lifted away. There was a slight pause and then Whoosh! Bang! The slipper flew through space and landed with an enormous wallop across my bottom. The sting burned furiously. It had been a hefty swat with a heavy slipper. Bedroom slippers back then were nothing like the light plastic things that fill the shops these days.

Before I regained my breath a second and a third wallop had my backside blazing. The vicar was old school. He believed in discipline. He believed in punishment. He believed in the Wrath of God. Bam! Bam! Bam! He fair took my backside apart. He showed no mercy. In his eyes I had sinned. I had failed to perform my household chores to his satisfaction. I had been late down to breakfast one morning and – in his mind at least – I had been disrespectful to Miss Frotherinsham, an elderly spinster in the village who regularly visited the vicar in search of spiritual guidance (and a free cup of tea).

So, I was in for it. The vicar had his little rituals. He would start by tanning the highest points of the cheeks and when the pounding made them as hard of leather he would turn his attention to the top of the mounds. After maybe fifty whacks he would go underneath. You know, the place where the bum cheeks meet the thighs. That’s the part that connects with the chair when you sit down. It meant that the pain would reignite for hours later whenever you sat.

Finally when there was no square inch of flesh left untoasted, the vicar would go for the back of the thighs. If you weren’t gasping in pain and praying (silently) for it all to stop already, you certainly were now.

I remember many times after a bare-bottomed slippering examining my ravaged buttocks in the bedroom mirror. The flesh was dark red and oftentimes I would see the imprint of the slipper emblazed time and again across my bum. The skin felt like leather and when I cupped my buttocks in my hand they seemed to be twice their normal size.

As I said, we took many spankings like that. Even when we were twenty-one. In those days you didn’t legally become an adult until you were twenty-one and we youngsters were used to being treated like children. People’s eyes pop when I tell them how we were spanked back then. “Crazy,” they say. “Why did you let him?”

The answer is: everything was different back then. We were much more deferential. You respected a vicar like he truly was God’s representative on earth. The Second World war was recently over and many men did not come home. That put enormous pressure on the mothers who had to raise boisterous boys without a father. Men of standing in the community stepped forward to lend a hand. The vicar was often called to deal with errant boys in the village, a duty he was happy to fulfil. I often returned from university just in time to see a boy hobbling down the drive, rubbing his bottom ruefully with his eyes blazing.

In the village where I grew up the local medical doctor took on this role. He often visited the homes of his patients not to offer remedies to the sick but to put his thick, wide leather belt to use.

Such was the way of life. It was how things were and we accepted it. I suppose, you could say we knew our place.

I certainly knew mine. It would never have occurred to me for a moment not to bow to the vicar’s authority. Even, when logically he had no authority over me. A case in point was in my first term at the vicarage. I was new to the university and it took me time to settle. I had attended a traditional grammar school where masters supervised every move we made. It was not like that at the university. We rarely had lectures and met with our tutors maybe once a fortnight. We were given essay titles to work on and told to go to the library and get on with it.

I don’t need to spell it out. My first essays were pretty poor. They were not failures but they would not set the world of academia alight. The vicar had already ruled that should any of we paying guests receive less than a B-plus we should be caned. Pure and simple. No discussion. No mitigation.

The vicar had a selection of crook-handled canes. He kept them in plain sight standing in an oversized vase in one corner of his parlour. You could buy these on any High Street in those days. Every classroom had one. Some schoolmasters would leave one hanging from the corner of the blackboard in easy reach should it be needed to encourage learning.

They came in all sizes and makes. The vicar’s were made of whippy rattan. Each was at least three feet long and they varied in thickness to one that was not much more than a reed to the largest that was the size of a pencil.

He asked his maid to call me to his room. She was a young woman, not much older than myself. I think she was often in the house when the vicar dealt with the village ruffians. I know for a fact she hovered outside the parlour door the time Higgins, a fellow paying guest, was beaten. Her flushed face betrayed her feelings.

She tried not to smile when she gave me the vicar’s instruction. I shrugged, affecting nonchalance, but my heart beat fast, I had by this time been spanked twice by the vicar but never caned. His beatings were legendary. I was not looking forward to this.

I had been caned before at school. Who hadn’t? It was that kind of school. My last beating happened only days before I was due to leave forever. Myself and two pals, Richardson and Jenkins, were summoned to the head’s study. The headmaster was an old stick (he and the vicar would have got on well together) and very hard on what he called “form”. To him behaviour was either good form or bad form.

The exams were over but we senior boys were expected to continue to attend school until the official leaving date. We had little useful to do and spent some of the day idly playing cricket. Oftentimes a master or two would join in. I suppose since we were eighteen and about to leave school we saw ourselves as adults. Our manners and behaviour slipped. Richardson, I know, was unabashed about smoking cigarettes behind the cricket pavilion. We joshed with the masters. Sometimes cheekily.

As I said there was good form and bad form. How the headmaster learned of our laxed behaviour I do not know. But that is as irrelevant now as it was then. So, we found ourselves standing three in a line in front of the headmaster’s desk.

I can picture it now, as if the scene was caught in a sepia photograph. Three thin, gangly senior schoolboys. Dressed in ill-fitting striped blazers and grey flannel trousers. Perched on our heads are ridiculous hooped caps. What a picture of a bygone age. If we had been first or second formers we would be dressed in grey short trousers and knee socks.

The headmaster was an ogre. A tyrant. A fiend. Boys trembled in dread as he swept through the passageways of the school, his academic gown flapping all around him. In my memory he always carried a stout curve-handled cane. Could that memory be true? Surely, not always?

We stood in terror. The headmaster was a smallish man and very wide. We had just been through a war and food and other commodities were still scarce but he appeared to eat well. His double chin had an extra chin of its own. His arms and legs were pudgy. His gown hid his hanging belly.

I can’t remember exactly what he said. It was many years ago. I do know he said it at great length. Every sentence or two he would pause so that myself, or Richardson, or Jenkins, or all three of us, could agree that we were the most disgraceful, shocking, scandalous pupils ever to set foot in his study.

The study was a large room but the headmaster’s huge desk dominated it. It seemed to me to be the size of a small paddling pool. At the other end of the room were a couple of armchairs and a low table. Several straight-backed chairs were gathered around the room. An open and unlit fireplace dominated one wall and two others had glass-fronted bookcases. Stained glass windows were on the fourth wall.

As I think I’ve made clear corporal punishment was common in those days. I think they still flogged prisoners in jail, certainly the cane was used in borstal and other institutions for juvenile delinquents. I tell you this to explain why nobody thought it strange that on one of the walls between the bookcases there was a display cabinet containing three curve-handled canes of various gradations and thicknesses. One for the junior boys, another for the middle school and so on.

The headmaster growled and heaved himself to his feet. It took some doing. Out of the corner of an eye I watched him wobble away from his desk. His destination was clear. He puffed and wheezed as he made his journey. He sucked in a lung-full of air as he reached up to the cabinet. Without hesitation he picked the longest and thickest of the three canes. My heart sank. Richardson bit down deeply on his bottom lip.

The headmaster turned. “Face me,” he growled. His breathing had eased and his authority returned. He flexed the cane menacingly between his hands. Why did all schoolmasters do this? Isn’t it the hammiest acting ever? He swiped the cane through the air to demonstrate its power. He needn’t have troubled himself. Each of us had been caned in the past by housemasters. Jenkins several times. We knew the damage a well-handled cane could inflict.

“Jenkins. Richardson. Stand and face the wall,” the headmaster barked. Relieved that they were not the first to get it my two pals hastily retreated. I breathed deeply. My heart raced, I couldn’t help it. I had no control over the inner workings of my body. I clasped my hands behind my back to steady myself. “Cap, blazer off,” he wobbled the cane as he spoke.

Despite unsteady hands I got the cap off my head and hung it on a hook on the door. Getting the buttons of my blazer undone was more trouble. “Hurry boy. We haven’t got all day,” the headmaster snarled. As far as I was concerned we did have all day. I was in no hurry to be flogged. I flushed bright red and with difficulty placed the blazer alongside the cap.

“Bend over the desk.”

It was a firm command and, of course, one I expected to be made, but I couldn’t get my legs to work. I was only three steps away from my destination but as I attempted the first of them my knees buckled. I gathered myself before I fell to the floor. The humiliation avoided, I staggered like a drunk man to the desk.

I had been ordered over the desk before. It was my form-master’s preferred positioning. My housemaster in contrast preferred a sixth-former to go over the back of his armchair. It’s all about the angle that the bum is presented, I suppose. It would depend on how tall the boy was. If you have him over the chair your swing with the cane might be in the upwards direction; if over the desk it might be downwards.

“Over the desk,” to my form-master meant laying flat on the stomach across the desk top. You had a choice of gripping the edge of the desk with your hands of folding your arms and burying your face. In the absence of further instructions from the headmaster, I lay flat and gripped the far edge of the desk. I turned my head so my left cheek touched the cold wood. Like this I had a clear view through the window. All I could see was blue sky and the lightest of fluffy clouds.

The floorboards creaked with the headmaster’s weight as he shuffled into position. My cock and balls were pressed hard against the desk. My trousers were tight across my buttocks. Clothes were still rationed so I had to wear them even though they no longer fitted well. I heard the headmaster move to stand by my left. The tip of his heavy cane touched the centre of my right bum cheek. He “sawed” the cane across the plumpest parts of the buttocks. It lifted away. I held my breath. I gripped the edge of the desk tightly. I closed my eyes and sucked my lips.

Swish! Crack! An almighty swipe slashed across both buttocks. It whizzed with great speed and force and sliced through the meat of my bum like that hot knife and butter everyone talks about. I heard it land across the seat of my stretched trousers but it seemed an age before the agony followed. I’ve never had a red hot rod pressed into my bum before but if such a thing were to happen it would not hurt as much as the headmaster’s first stroke.

My whole body shuddered. My hips swivelled. I humped the edge of the desk like I was servicing a chambermaid. The agony was so great I didn’t have the strength to cry out.

Then the second swipe cut. Lower than the first but equally as deep. I could feel a welt rising under my underpants. My head banged up and down into the desk. Water filled my eyes, blinding me. A yap like a little whipped puppy might make fractured my throat.

“Huh!” The headmaster behind me seemed pleased with his handiwork so far. “Keep still boy,” he hissed. That was easier said than done. All the breath had been knocked out of me, I was gasping for air.

The third swipe sliced me across the top of the buttocks. The headmaster was an expert. He had landed three cuts perfectly parallel. I had a burning stripe about four inches wide across my backside. I didn’t know because I couldn’t see but my pals were staring at my blistering bum wide-eyed with terror.

“Face the wall!” the headmaster raged. “Do you want extra cuts?” That was a rhetorical question, if ever I have heard one.

The headmaster gave me a full Six. Six-of-the-best we called it back then. I don’t think that phrase did the headmaster’s beating justice. It was the harshest thrashing I had ever received. Each stroke delivered with aplomb, landing with power and accuracy. The man was the best – literally, a master.

You might wonder why I let him do it. Looking back after several decades I wonder why too? The exams were over, we were going to leave school for good in a few days’ time. What would have happened if we had refused?

Nothing. That’s the answer. But, as I said, things were different back then. Deference. We knew our place. It did not even occur to any of us: myself, Richardson or Jenkins, to refuse. Our superior ordered us across the desk, so across the desk we went.

So, when a few months later the vicar summoned me to the parlour for a taste of his cane, I went without question. And I went on doing so for three more years. Over the desk. Over the knee. What strange times they were.

z used drawing football The Gem (54)

Good afternoon from the Old Mill ground where this thrilling First Division match ended with a 4-3 victory for the Town over title challengers Albion.

The star of the show was once again whiz kid Stanley Mitchell, the eighteen-year-old amateur player who has burst onto the scene this season. Mitchell who is still a schoolboy displayed all the brilliance we have come to expect of him from recent matches. He scored the first goal with a quite remarkable dribble from the halfway line. I lost count of the number of Albion players he left in his wake as he charged up the field.

His second goal was a wonderful volley from the edge of the penalty area that simply flew into the top corner of the net leaving goalkeeper Hanks with no chance.

But for all Mitchell’s undoubted footballing talent he once again showed his immaturity and ill-discipline. He was dismissed from the pitch in the 75th minute when he went down after being tackled in the Albion area. He claimed a penalty which the referee denied.

Mitchell refused to accept the decision and spent some time arguing violently with the referee Mr Calderstones. The air was quite blue. Mr Calderstones quite rightly sent off Mitchell who reacted by taking off his shirt and throwing it to the ground as he left the field.

Although he is a quite brilliant player Mitchell is garnering a reputation for being a spoilt, unruly, petulant young man. Much to the annoyance of his fellow players and his manager Mr Clapman.

I am told there was a scene in the dressing room after the match. Alf Mortenson, Town’s burley captain, intervened on behalf of his club-mates. Young Mitchell soon found himself across Mortenson’s knee in the fashion of many petulant boys. His football knickers and underwear were ripped down so that his bottom was quite bare. A size-12 rubber-soled plimsoll was then used with some vigour.

Many listeners may know  from their own experiences with physical-training instructors at school that the plimsoll in the right hands is an awesome punishment tool. Mortenson, who stands well over six-foot-five and weighs fifteen-stone was well placed to deliver Mitchell’s much-deserved spanking.

Mortenson was encouraged by his clubmates who watched and cheered as he hammered the slipper across the young brat’s naked bottom. No square inch of the buttocks was left unattended. The eighteen-year-old was said to be howling and hollering long before the captain let up.

One thing is for certain it will be a very uncomfortable ride home for Mitchell on the team bus.

We shall have to see whether there is an improvement in Mitchell’s behaviour at next week’s match against Rovers. Meanwhile, the wonderkid has to return to school on Monday and it remains to be seen if his headmaster has something more to say on the matter.

This is Raymond Gladhanding returning you to the studio. Eamonn.
