Marks Development


The caning that I received on the Valentine's weekend left quite a few visible marks. The picture above shows how my bottom looked like directly after the caning. I got 32 strokes in total (I was supposed to receive 30, but the last two went a bit low and so we decided to repeat them for the clip). I love the accurate lines which are almost evenly spread over my whole bottom.


It seems that the marks are going to stay with me for a while and I decided to share some pictures with you for those who are interested in how cane marks develop over time. The second picture shows my bottom on the next morning. Quite a few dark blue spots which prove that the caning wasn't about love taps. And you can still see some of the typical lines which the cane produces.


Another day later and in a slightly different light the bruises looked even a bit darker than on the morning directly after the scene. In case some of you are wondering, no, my bottom didn't hurt despite of the strong marking. Actually, it usually only hurts during the caning, afterwards I only feel the bruises slightly when sitting down on a hard chair.


The last picture was taken yesterday, exactly one week after the caning. As you can see, the marks have started to fade. I guess after another week the most visible bruises will be gone. I have to say that for me the marks are the most beautiful directly after a caning. The dark bruises aren't really sexy in my view. But I like to take pictures of them nonetheless because they serve as a reminder that a caning was of a certain severity.

How about you? Are you a marks fetishist? Which kinds of marks do you like best?

It's No Fun

It's no fun. But what would our children think of us otherwise?

As this cartoon which I have found on Spiegel Online shows, life has become tough for vanillas nowadays. Of course this is just a funny exaggeration. Still, I have to admit that I indeed preferred the times when kink was simply something for those who were really into it...

A Creative Valentine's Weekend


Hope all those of you who enjoy this holiday had a great Valentine's Day and those of you who don't celebrate it had a nice weekend nonetheless. Ludwig and I did none of the typical things couples do on Valentine's Day. No overpriced flowers, no chocolate (we've been working on getting rid of the one or other pound and becoming fitter during the last weeks and don't want to spoil the results) and no Valentine's dinner in an overcrowded restaurant.

Instead, we stayed at home and worked on a new kinky clip the whole weekend. We had toyed around with a certain storyline for a few weeks and decided that this was something we wanted to bring to life before closing down our blog. It actually took us about twenty hours of preparation and filming because we wanted to get it perfectly right.


I guess one could say that this is far too much effort for an erotic clip. It's much more than professional producers can invest, because for them time is money. But then again, they have people working behind the camera, which means they are much faster than the two of us. We set the scene, position the cameras, do the acting, and then check the footage to see if everything looked okay. Then we repeat the whole process for the next scene, then again for the scene after that... I suppose most viewers won't even notice all the details, like a character wearing two different ties in two scenes which are supposed to take place on different days. Or the little quotes we put in as homages to spanking and mainstream films we like. But, these little things matter to us, so in my opinion it was a good thing to invest that much time.

It's the first time we used two full HD cameras, so the footage will be much sharper than our older clips. Since the action was proper enough as well and left some dark red cane stripes and welts on my rarely spanked bottom, I suppose this will also satisfy the "I don't care for storylines, I am here for the action only" faction. I have to admit that I am very happy with the resulting footage (which happens rather rarely) and I am looking forward to editing and publishing the clip. Which will surely take some time, given that we have about seven or eight hours of raw material.


In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the first brand new screenshots and a short introduction of the scenario: Edward Tillinghast leads a very traditional all-male university. When the board makes the decision to experiment with new ways and appoint the first female professor, he is surprised and delighted to discover that the new member of staff is none other than his old university friend Patrizia Hartmann. But what about the students and the “old boy's club”? Will they accept the new professor as well? And how about the regulations for CP which is still administered at this university? Should a female professor hand out CP as well? Will Patrizia decide to learn how to wield a cane? Quite a few questions which the board hasn't really thought through. Questions that will soon be answered after Miss Hartmann's arrival, though!

Traditional School Houses


While school girl scenarios might not be among my most popular fantasies, I still have a thing for old school houses. The one on the top of this post is a traditional school house that I visited in Germany. See the canes on the table? I find the one in the middle very impressive. To me it looks like a real thick branch from a local tree which was peeled, except for the part that it used as the handle. I bet it produces more thud than its peeled rattan brothers and sisters.


By the way, I wasn't the only one who showed an interest in the canes that day. For some minutes the barrier which kept the visitors away from the front of the school room had accidentally been left open and so everyone thought it was okay to take a closer look. Thus I watched quite a few people picking up one of the canes, explaining how the canes were used and even pretending to use them. Quite a strange view for a spanko at such a public place!


The second school house is one Ludwig and I came across during one of our holiday trips. I love the lectern in front of the classroom with the candles! And I like the fact that the wall, the floor and almost everything is wooden in this classroom.

In a museum, Ludwig and I also found this depiction of a school scene. One could pull the string that leads to the teacher's hand to let him raise his stick. I wonder who had that idea?


The interesting question kink-wise is of course, where do I see myself in such a classroom? Maybe in front of the black board like in this picture which we took in yet another museum? Well, I have to admit that I enjoy the idea of being a teacher. I love to give trainings in real life and in a kinky context my toppy side would be pleased as well.


Of course being the naughty school girl that I never was could have a certain appeal as well. Playing pranks with my fellow classmates, knowing that this will most probably lead to painful consequences for all of us.


In my fantasy school house I definitely want a traditional blackboard, wooden tables and a lectern if possible. Plus school uniforms of course. While they weren't common in Germany, they are certainly part of my kinky school fantasies. And I want a mixed school class, or, even better, an all-boys school into which I have sneaked disguised as one of them (definitely no pigtails then).


How about you? What would your perfect kinky school house look like? And which role would you play? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section!

Kaelah's Corner (Jan 2015):
From a Distance

(Lazarus. My favourite picture of all time on this blog.)

This is the fourth part of my series about my experiences in my time as a kinky blogger. You can read the first three parts here, here and here.

My fourth year of blogging started with my favourite picture ever which I created in a self-portraying session. I know that it's rather disturbing, even for Ludwig, the horror fan, and I really love it! It was a time when Ludwig and I made and published lots of kinky pictures on this blog. You can see several of them in this post.


There weren't only pictures, though. With our readers' help I got a nice blogiversary spanking which we filmed and published for free on this blog. The readers were still very active at that time. Our LOL Day post for instance got 59 comments which resulted in a severe LOL Day switching for me, since the voters decided that I and not Ludwig should be on the receiving end of the rod.

I also posted a fictional spanking story in three parts (part 1, part 2, part 3) that year, called Girls will be Boys. There were philosophical ramblings as well, for instance about the relationship between spanking, BDSM and domestic discipline. And I wrote a very tongue in cheek post titled Ban Porn, Save Our Women and Children.


While the blog was still very active, life was changing. Ludwig and I still occasionally wrote about our private kinky exploits, for instance about the lost bag. But kink and sex in general started to play a more and more minor role in our relationship. I didn't really recognize it at the time and I didn't really miss it, either. Taking kinky pictures, writing about kink, plus the occasional private scene with Ludwig was enough to keep me happy. Ludwig and I shared so many other important things like deep conversations, fantastic holiday trips and simply a good time together that I didn't miss the sexual intensity which we had shared at the beginning of our relationship.


Ludwig's interest in kink, sexual adventures and his public kinky life as a blogger also decreased which he explained wonderfully in his post on his fifth blogiversary: "I am with Kaelah now, and while we met through kink and it continues to be an important part of our lives, our love is based on other, much more important things. While kink is still significant to me, it is much less significant than it was five years ago. I think less about it than I used to. I watch less spanking porn than I used to. And I don't feel like I have to prove anything through blogging or making videos. There are things I would still dearly love to do, but none where I feel that I have to do them in order to be happy in my kink. Actually, I shall be quite happy to retire from my public kinky life eventually."


I think in Ludwig's case, the diminishing interest in kinky porn, making videos and blogging also had to do with the fact that the kinky video industry had changed and longer movies with a storyline and proper action had become rarer. Lupus Pictures closed down completely. Mood Pictures had started to release videos again, but much less frequently than they used to. We spent a wonderful evening with Pedro in Budapest, but Ludwig's interest in reviewing videos or participating in their making had become less strong. Plus, many models who had been active bloggers so far stopped writing or blogged less frequently than they used to.


I had a slightly different but rather similar experience. I started to realise that it is hard to stay in contact with kinky friends and to share a deep friendship if one lives so far away from each other. For Ludwig and me, it wasn't possible to easily attend parties in the US or meet our fellow bloggers and online friends regularly. In addition to that, Twitter and Tumblr were the new attractions and the attention for traditional blogs began to fade. Several friends stopped blogging or at least wrote less posts and comments. That made me sad because I like to have relationships that involve a certain closeness and I realised that building those in the kinky online community is difficult, especially with people who live in a different country.


And then there were new private challenges as well at the end of my fourth year as a blogger which proved to be very time-consuming and emotionally stressful. That led to anxiety attacks and was the beginning of a difficult time for both Ludwig and me. More about that in the next edition of Kaelah's Corner.

The Ballgown


On our last Love Our Lurkers Day (or Global Day of Delurk, as we call it here), we let you vote on which of three videos you would like to see. The majority of you voted for the clip Office Discipline, not knowing that it is the one F/M clip among the bunch (then again, we have quite a few F/M fans among the readers of Rohrtock-Palast). We said at the time that we would eventually publish the other two videos as well. Today, we present you with The Ballgown.

This was the runner-up of the LOL Day vote, and a fairly close runner-up, too (6 votes versus 8 for the winner). Gustofur, Hermione, Secret Spanko, Chross, Spearthrower and New one voted for it. Secret Spanko wrote: "I like the idea of disrobing from a classy ballroom gown." And Spearthrower: "Like the ball season in Vienna (spankers' ball sounds great to attend)." Indeed it does.


Well, as it turns out, the special thing about this clip is that it features a caning over the ballgown, so no disrobing (sorry, Secret Spanko). Kaelah is a big fan of corporal punishment over the clothes [I am indeed!] and wanted to do one video like that sometime. I usually prefer to watch CP on the bare, where one can see the spankee's beautiful bottom and the marks in development. [Don't worry, guys, you get to see the marks, anyway, albeit only at the end of the clip. I made sure to edit a long marks sequence for you.] But I too am happy to try something different for a change. So we fulfilled Kaelah's fantasy. This clip does not have any storyline, it is simply a festive caning in festive clothes. [Plus, it features some rope, too!]

The dress is Kaelah's Chinese dress which already turned heads when we visited the 2011 Shadow Lane party in Las Vegas. I got properly suited up as well. We hope that the video will please dress lovers like our friend Peter in particular. And the rest of you will hopefully enjoy it as well. [By the way, the thin fabric of the ballgown didn't offer much protection from the bite of the cane, so there is no need to worry that I didn't feel the sting.]

Seventh Blogiversary

In 2014, I celebrated what I called "the perfect anniversary for a spanking blog": six of the best! This year, I suppose I am celebrating six of the best plus one. One for luck? One for wisdom? Either way, seven is still a pretty nice number, even though it lacks the spankophile significance of its predecessor.

Only a small handful of kinky blogs reach the venerable age of seven years, and I am proud that Rohrstock-Palast is among them. It's an achievement I share with Kaelah, of course - while I started the blog back in 2008, she ended up writing the majority of the posts after she came on board as my mate and co-author. Kaelah and I becoming a couple is, for me looking back, the most unforseen and the most fortunate event to result from this blog. Plus, there were some other, pretty amazing adventures as well.

As we wrote in The Final Countdown, the time of this blog will soon come to an end. We know that the prospect saddens you, as it saddens us. But the reasons we gave in November's post still apply for me: I feel that I have done pretty much everything I wanted to do here, and after seven years of spanking blogging, there are other, non-kinky projects I would rather undertake in my limited spare time.

However, the blog will go on a little longer than we originally planned. Because of the aforementioned limited spare time, it turns out that things take longer to wrap up than anticipated. There are still videos to edit, and as they include what I regard as our best ones, I want to do a good and thorough job with them. There are also quite a few instalments left in Ludwig's Story, long posts that take time and inspiration as well. And some more things. I expect that the blog will go on until the end of March at least.

Nonetheless, this will definitely be my last blogiversary. It is an appropriate time to thank all of you readers, old and new, for staying with us, leaving your comments and making the blog fun and worthwhile for us for so many years. Thank you so much for that!
