Wow, twenty-eight days or exactly four weeks. This has been the longest posting hiatus in the history of Rohrstock-Palast. The previous post was thirteen days in the making, between September 17th and 30th, and in the years before that, I don't think we ever had a break of more than eleven days - I am too hard-pressed for time to look it up, but I believe it was eleven, or thereabouts. Have you forgotten all about us yet? You haven't? Good.

It was nice to take an extended hiatus. I feel somewhat refreshed now. Kaelah and I are still busy with various things, and kink is still not the foremost thing on our minds these days. We can't promise that we will return to our once meticulous one post every four days schedule anytime soon. But we should definitely be able to post more than we did this month. Five posts per month would be nice, and should be realistic.

One idea I have had to try and make a virtue out of necessity is encouraging more reader contribution. Having a series of discussions about topics around spanking and BDSM is something I have been wanting to do for some time, anyway. In the coming weeks, I plan to try that out. I will post a question or a topic of discussion and ask you to write down your opinion about it. I will also give you my personal standpoint, obviously, but only afterwards so as to not prejudice you during the discussion.

In the meantime, though, and since I did not want this to be just a boring, self-evident "We're back!" post, I leave you with a picture I found on another blog recently. It is courtesy of Girls Boarding School and shows the lovely Amelia-Jane Rutherford in her one and only shoot with that classic site (probably my favourite GBS scene among their hundreds and hundreds of scenes).

I am not usually into "relentless genitalia" pictures, to borrow an expression I once heard from a spanking model friend. But I am looking past that here, or rather, I am looking elsewhere. What I like about the picture is the super-elegant pose on tiptoes. It is a pose we have seen a thousand times before in similar scenes, but there are few women in the world who can make it look as spectacularly graceful as Amelia-Jane. It helps to be tall and lanky, I guess - I once met Amelia-Jane a couple of years ago, playing her boyfriend in a shoot with German petgirl site SM-Circus, and even though I am a six footer, she still towers above me.

Regard this as a companion piece to my The Perfect Arch post from 2009, have a nice day, and write a mini-essay about your favourite corporal punishment poses in the comments section if you feel like it.
