It works perfectly some of the time but when we have been apart for a while, due to our working lives, the whole thing starts to get a bit slack – mainly on my side I have to humbly admit. Faults we agreed that will be addressed by the use of corporal punishment go unpunished. And too often, even when Mistress suggests a need for corrective measures, I find excuses not to be punished. Furthermore it is imperative for us both that I stop my ‘bratting’ behaviour when I feel a new for CP.
We therefore have agreed to try a different tact and instigate a weekly maintenance punishment session, something suggested by Michael M in a comment on one of my recent blogs. Thank you Michael for your suggestion.
Mistress and I both agree that this could be a positive step for our FLR.
We’ve no idea whether it will work any better than our previous efforts but it’s worth trailing for a period of two months.
Mistress asked me to draw up a discussion document which I present here for your comments. From this we’ll finalise and agreement and implement it immediately.
The aim is to reaffirm the dominant/submissive relationship we have.
And to ensure I maintain the correct attitude within the house, ensuring the Mistress is always afforded the respect and servitude that is expected in our flr.
Why the need?
To prevent any build up of tension between us and to stop the practice of me trying to encourage Mistress to use corporal punishment.
This punishment is not for any particular fault(s) but purely for the purpose of maintenance.
As we have discussed the regular day and time will be each Thursday at 8.00pm but as both of us have busy work schedules we will also agree that at the start of every week we will check our respective diaries and finalise the day and time for the routine, weekly punishment session. This punishment tariff is a set at 36 strokes of the cane, delivered full force at a pace of no more than 10s between strokes. The cane to be used is a Dragon (Mistress decides which to be used but cannot mix two type). If punishment cannot be delivered at the specified day and time, it is carried out on the next most convenient day. If punishment has to be carried over to the following week and a double dose delivered in full (72 strokes), one hour separating the two punishments.
The advantages of maintenance punishment:
It sets a weekly routine that has to be adhered to
It does away with any negotiation process
It removes the burden from the dominant partner to know when to punish
It helps focus the roles we have
It ends any craving for punishment and therefore stops any deliberate efforts to be punished
We both know exactly where we stand
The disadvantages of maintenance punishment:
The pressure of adhering to a strict, weekly deadline
What about punishment for real faults?
Real faults will still be subjected to correction by means of corporal punishment and will be administered as Mistress sees fit but will not form part of the routine maintenance punishment. If Mistress feels it necessary to address any faults on the day of the routine maintenance punishment, then a further punishment can be administered one hour after the maintenance session. However, with regular maintenance the intention is to encourage a more submissive attitude and improved behaviour thereby reducing the amounts of faults that need correction.
