I enjoy checking the search terms that bring readers to my blog. I find it particularly pleasing when people get here by searching for my name. Sometimes, people search for things that are very appropriate indeed: “happy consensual spanking,” “girls who love to be spanked” and “writing about spanking” all make a lot of sense. Others make me a little scrunchy in the face, but may well be true: “people who cry a lot” and “the spanking model who cries the most” were high on that list. Some are just slightly creepy, or at the very least, too extreme for me: “dark blue ass after caning”and “spanking till scars” are in the DO NOT DO category. Some people get really ridiculous ones, but thus far, I haven’t really had that many of those.
Tonight, however, I saw a search term come up that was almost a request: someone searched for “Alex Reynolds Lexan Video.” Now, I can tell you straight up, dear searcher, sadly for you, but probably happily for me, such a video does not exist. It may well exist someday, though, and if it does, it’s going to be one pathetic film. I’ve talked before about having a “love/hate relationship” with certain implements. I wouldn’t say that’s the case with my lexan paddle. I’m pretty sure I just have a “hate/hate relationship” with it.
My original lexan paddle is a Lexan OTK Paddle from Cane-iac.com. It was purchased for me by my friend, IG, who is tremendously sadistic. There are a couple of things that I find noteworthy about this particular piece: first of all, it’s thickness is significant. It’s 1/2 inch lexan, where as almost all other lexan paddles are 1/4th inch. That means that it’s heavy and solid and packs an incredible amount of weight. The second feature is that it has a “blade” of only six inches in length. Having a small surface area means that all the force of a strike is concentrated in a small area of the bottom (or, in more terrible cases, the thighs) and makes it hurt a lot in one spot instead of spreading it out. It’s a recipe for serious agony.
That’s the physical side of things: there’s also a psychological component for me (as there always is). IG’s partner and submissive, my friend Peachy, had told me all kinds of stories about what a horrible implement it was before I received my own for my birthday. I brought it with me on a visit to Malignus’ and he discovered it the second morning that I was there. He brought it out and asked me if I’d ever felt Lexan before. I told him I had not, and he told me how truly terrible it was and said that it was too sadistic even for him: an idea which was kind of terrifying to me, considering our previous experiences together. He then said that he was going to give me four swats with it, so that I could understand what I was dealing with, but that he would probably never use it again. Because tops can’t count, I then got six swats with it on top of the mess of bruises that I’d already had from the night before. It was horrible: the pain was deep penetrating and sort of “buzzed.” It was a mixture of way too much sting and way too much thud. I was extremely grateful for the idea that it wasn’t going to be used again. Except for the fact that it totally was, a bunch of times, and it continues to be fairly regularly. It really, really hurts, but I know that my experience of it is greatly enhanced by the amount that it has been built up in my mind as something ridiculously horrible. Truth be told, the other night Malignus made me cry just by leading me into the bedroom with it in his hand.
Fast forward to this month: I had recently gotten back from my visit to my family’s house when another package from IG arrived. He had certainly one-upped himself: besides containing a few other choice nightmare-makers, he had sent me a new lexan paddle:
It is also 1/2 inch thick, but it’s quite a bit larger and it has holes in it. It’s heavy and thick and doesn’t create an air cushion. It does create screaming, though: it’s now tied for the thing which hurts the most in the entire world. I think that highest amount of strikes I’ve received from it at a time is four and that’s way more than enough for me.
Here it is pictured with my original paddle (which I still despise.)
Since I can’t provide you with a video to satisfy your curiosity, dear searcher, I hope this story will suffice. Here is a photo of my butt after a very hard spanking with the smaller lexan paddle (without a warmup and starting with the thighs, because I live with a horrible sadist.) There are also older cane bruises that still show a bit- I think they are from playing Zelda.
More search terms that amuse me will result in more “Your Wish is My Command” posts. Stay tuned!
I still say it’s not the implement but the one who wields it 😉 But those implements look fun to use. Great post Alex 🙂
There are some things that are hard to use in a non-scary manner, though. Unless you’re tapping. But tapping is just silly. 😛
One of the search results that popped up with my blog that made me laugh the most was “help me get my Lea back.” I don’t think they were looking for me, though.
Lexan sounds horrid. I’m someone who tends to be dumb enough to try anything once but that one will probably stay on the hard limit list, along with anything rubber, metal, or plastic. My experience with those other things were not good.
I hear you on the psychological factor that one can tie into a particular implement. Some of the things I hate/fear the most really aren’t even the most severe things that have been used on me, but how I associate it in my head makes it terrible.
It would have been very creepy if they were!
Lexan is horrid. So is rubber. So is plastic. I used to get spanked with a metal frosting spreader and it was not so bad, but real metal implements scare the crap out of me.
You immediately have my respect.
I have two Lexan paddles, one that’s probably 1/4 inch and about 18 inches long and one that’s frat paddle sized and probably 1/2 inch thick. The second is not one that I’ve used very often. Maybe that’s because the first one usually causes sufficient change in behavior.
I can see why you don’t need to use the bigger one! Malignus said that we should call the bigger of my two lexans “Alex’s Best Friend” because it makes me behave so very well. -_-
Those bruises look impressive. I’ve never used a lexan paddle before, but now I’m more curious than ever. I’m good at paddling, so I feel like I can handle the intricacies of it. It’s just a question of practice, practice, practice…
I think the biggest difference with the lexan is the density. I do feel bad for whomever you’ll be practicing on though!
