Kaelah's Corner (Nov 2019):
An Unexpected Finding

I'm still in the process of sifting through my parents' legacy. With the two little ones, my job and all the other regular duties it will probably take me two or three more years to sort everything out properly and decide what to do with every little piece.

A few weeks ago I looked through old papers, from medical bills to old sports club magazines dating back to the Seventies. There was a kind of yearbook from an advanced training course, too, made by the participants as a memento when the course was over. I screened through the magazine and saw that it contained some cartoons about life as an office worker, too.

One of them caught my attention. It was definitely kinky (plus M/M!) and I absolutely hadn't expected to find something like that. I've scanned it in order to show it to you:

It says: „You're late again, Mr Bachmann. Now I have to make an example of you!“

I thought it was a cute little finding! And of course I wondered who had decided to put it in the yearbook. Maybe a like-minded kinkster?

Snippets From A Fantasy:
The Mirror

This is supposed to become a new irregular format on Ludwig's Rohrstock-Palast. I would like to share snippets from kinky fantasies with you and you can fill in the blanks with your own ideas and thoughts. I have no idea how well this is going to work, but I would like to give it a try. Your comments and thoughts are very welcome!

Usually there won't be any photos accompanying the posts, but in this case I had a fitting one, and since an anonymous LOL Day commenter suggested that I should post pictures of my bottom more often – here it is! ;-)

She took a deep breath, her eyes firmly fixed upon her image in the mirror. She saw the cane being measured across her bare backside and felt the soft touch of the wood. Then suddenly the cane pulled away, she heard the sharp swish, followed by a crack and saw the implement making contact with her bottom. It bounced back, leaving her cheeks twitching and wobbling.

Then she saw nothing more, as she automatically closed her eyes when she started to feel the wave of delicious pain and heat move across her body. She only heard herself moan and felt her whole body rear up and finally sink back down.

As she opened her eyes again, she could see a thin red line slowly appear right across her previously unmarked bottom. She knew it wouldn't be the last one to be painted on her backside. And so she took another deep breath, her eyes firmly fixed on her image in the mirror...

Global Day(s) of Delurk 2019

Eleven years ago, in 2008, I wrote my first-ever comment on a kinky blog. At the time, I was a total newbie to the world of erotic spanking, and had no practical experience whatsoever. I wrote my comment because us silent readers had been invited to do so on a special occasion titled Love Our Lurkers Day. The blog I commented on was called Rohrstock-Palast and belonged to a guy named Ludwig. It was not only my first comment on a kinky blog, it was my first-ever comment on any kind of blog, and I was very nervous when I finally hit the "publish comment" button.

About three months later, I had lost my virginity in the field of erotic spanking to Ludwig, with whom I had started an intense email-conversation, whom I had then met in person and who had quickly become a close friend. On LOL Day 2009, we were already writing this blog together, not as friends but as mates. As a couple, we made lots of new kinky experiences, met fellow kinksters and even produced some spanking videos – all of which we shared with you on this blog.

Today, eleven years, one wedding and two little ones later, our lives have altered completely. And so has the kinky community. Thankfully, there are a few constants, like the presence of Bonnie, the inventor of LOL Day, and Hermione, who hosts LOL Day now, and their blogs. Many thanks to both of you! Apart from that, fellow bloggers have come and gone, and so have commenters.

Sometimes there have been happy and unexpected returns, too. In April this year we got a heads-up from Ursus Lewis, who used to be an avid commenter for many years, but had stopped commenting in 2014. It was great to hear that you are still out there and doing fine! And then in July this year, our lovely fellow-blogger Spankedhortic (Prefectdt) was finally able to resume blogging, after having been forced to quit due to problems with his eyesight in 2014. It's wonderful to have you back!

Since this blog isn't as active anymore as at used to be some years ago, I don't know how many silent readers are out there, if any. But if you are, you are wholeheartedly invited and very welcome to write a comment and say hi! You don't have to be very creative and you don't have to share anything about yourself you aren't comfortable sharing. It would just be great to hear from you! And don't worry, you don't have to marry anyone just because you have decided to write a comment. ;-)

Since LOL Day (or the Global Day of Delurk, as we like to call it on our blog) is very dear to our hearts, I would like to use this occasion to make at least a small announcement: I have planned to add a new infrequent series of posts to my blogging routine titled "Snippets from a fantasy". As the title says, these posts will contain short snippets (a few paragraphs long) from kinky fantasies of mine, leaving enough space for you to fill in the voids with your own fantasies and ideas. I hope you'll enjoy it! If you are interested, you are invited to come back on Sunday, when I will publish the very first instalment titled "The Mirror".

Until then, thank you very much for reading and for accompanying Ludwig and me on our journey!

Kaelah's Corner (Oct 2019):
All Your Backside Are Belong To Us!

Welcome to another slightly belated edition of Kaelah's Corner. Life and especially work have been extremely busy lately. But, fortunately, there are those little funny moments in between all the stress that make life worth living. Ludwig and I recently had one of those which was even related to kink, so I would like to share it here.

As I have already mentioned a while ago, I am fascinated by the concept of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Recently, I read some tables about cryptocurrencies to Ludwig, struggling with the fact that the tables only contained the currency codes and I often didn't know the full name of the currency behind it. When I came to a currency with the code SUB, I didn't need much time to think, though.
"Next, we have submission coin", I told Ludwig with utter conviction. He cracked up laughing. Of course that was not the correct name of the currency, and Ludwig even knew the real name. But he liked my creation much more and so I continued to refer to submission coin, every time the currency code came up. And for those of you who are no subs – there's TOP, too, just for you! :-)

While we were fooling around about submitting, Ludwig suddenly said: "All your base are belong to us!" Now, I am a geek, but I have to admit that I didn't know the reference. It's from the opening sequence of the game Zero Wing that had a very funny translation from Japanese to English. Ludwig showed the sequence to me and I loved it! That's what makes it so great to be married to a like-minded geek.

Of course translations like this probably wouldn't be done any more in today’s gaming scene. Which is kind of sad. We sometimes still have similar funny translations in spanking films, though, especially in those from Russia!

So, insert your submission coin into the spanking game machine and be informed that: "All your backside are belong to us! You are on the way to a sore bottom." And before you ask me: "What you say?" Let me tell you: "You have no chance to avoid the cane. Make your time!"

Kaelah's Corner (Sep 2019):
Bottoming from the Top

Ludwig and I recently talked about kinky events we might attend in the future. Given our current situation, it was quite clear that we wouldn't really put any of our ideas into practice any time soon, though. But fantasizing together was fun nonetheless.

Ludwig told me that he might one day like to participate in the "Spanking Gerichtshof" (spanking court) as a defendant. Since he is into judicial scenarios, he admitted that the idea of being sentenced to a caning (by me as the judge) and then punished in public holds a certain appeal for him. One thing bothered him, though. While Ludwig isn't opposed to switching, the prospect of only bottoming at such an event and me only topping was something he wasn't completely happy with.

I, on the other hand, am not into judicial scenarios, especially not as a bottom. Being punished for some (made-up) misdeed in front of others holds no appeal to me whatsoever. So we mused about what we could do instead. And we came back to an idea that I had already had earlier. As a judge, I could try out the different implements on the receiving end at the beginning of the day in order to gain a better knowledge of what kind of punishments I would be sentencing the delinquents to. That way I could be on the receiving end as well and the storyline would work for me.

I pondered over the scenario for a while and then told Ludwig: "I think that could rightfully be called bottoming from the top." Of course I am one of the people who like to top from the bottom anyway, but in my opinion the kind of storyline described would be deserving of the new label "bottoming from the top", since in a way I would remain a top even while being on the receiving end. And I have to admit I like that label. Ludwig thought about my explanation for a moment and then agreed. "That's an interesting new label," he said, "and it would be a nice topic for a post."

So, here it is. And maybe the scenario described is something we're gonna do one day in a few years! How about you, have you ever been involved in any scenario that could be labeled as "bottoming from the top"? Would that have any appeal to you? I look forward to reading about your thoughts and experiences in the comment section!

Kaelah's Corner (Aug 2019):
Tenth Blogiversary

I can't really believe it, but it was indeed ten years ago that I wrote my first-ever post on this blog! I had almost forgotten to celebrate that special anniversary with a blogiversary post.

Ludwig and I recently looked at some of the pictures we took when we had just met each other, and Ludwig joked about how extremely young I looked at the time, almost like a teenager. I remember that one of our clips once appeared on an illegal filesharing website, being labeled not only as "spanking" but additionally as "teen".

Porn-wise I am definitely not a "teen" anymore (even though that label is for women who usually aren't legally teens but twens or even thirty-somethings, since that business is and should be for adults only). Today I am definitely (hopefully) a "MILF".

That's fine with me, though, as long as a still feel comfortable with my body. And luckily it isn't the only thing that has changed in the past ten years. Of course there have been sad changes, too, the worst of them being that both my parents have died. But the time also has been filled with wonderful events and experiences. Lots of kinky adventures, traveling, receiving my PhD, Ludwig and I moving in together, marrying and finally the birth of our two little ones.

I still remember how many time I spent writing posts for this blog ten years ago, how excited I was when I posted them and when people commented on them. Ludwig and I used to talk a lot about kink as well, we took the time to try out different things, we met kinky friends, attended kinky events and published kinky videos. And we spent a lot of time hanging around enjoying each other's company, exchanging (vanilla) thoughts, watching films or simply relaxing.

Now our time schedule has changed a lot! Today was the first time in over half a year that Ludwig and I spent some leisure time together, just the two of us without kids. We went to a nice Japanese restaurant for a wonderful dinner. Given that I almost have no time to myself anymore, it is quite clear that I can't write as much for this blog nowadays as I used to. But still this blog is alive and running!

Thank you very much to everyone who accompanied me (and of course, Ludwig, too) on this journey of kink and life during the past ten years! It was wonderful to exchange thoughts and ideas with you, and I appreciated all the nice and thoughtful comments I got.

I am quite sure that there aren't ten more years of kinky blogging lying ahead of me. But I hope that once the kids are at least a little bit older, Ludwig and I will find the time to edit and publish some more spanking clips (several of which have already been filmed) and finally finish this blog after a period of more intense blogging than we currently manage to.

Until then my aim is to keep this blog alive with at least one post a month. Ludwig already has ideas for new posts, too, so maybe he'll be able to join me again a bit more often, soon. I keep my fingers crossed!

Kaelah's Corner (Jul 2019):
Consensual Non-Consent in Space

As the long-time readers among you know, I am a huge trekkie and grew up with Star Trek – The Next Generation, a series that always put a smile on my face. Now, approximately 30 years later, the old familiar feeling of joy is back – every time I watch The Orville. For those of you who aren't as geeky as I am, The Orville is a series created by Seth MacFarlane who is a huge trekkie himself. Thus, The Orville is an homage to Star Trek, but with more realistic dialogue and its own very special kind of humour.

As always, we are a bit behind the schedule here in Germany, because the episodes are shown as synchronised versions on German television. So it was only a few weeks ago that I watched the second episode of season two, called "Primal Urges".

It's an episode which, among other things, discusses the topic of porn addiction. And since the plot is set in the 25th century, we are not talking about watching videos, but about living out erotic fantasies on a holodeck. Lieutenant Commander Bortus, the second officer aboard the USS Orville, and his mate Klyden are struggling with serious problems in their relationship, and Bortus finds mental escape in the fantasy world of the holodeck.

What I love about The Orville is that they often manage to combine serious topics and difficult ethical questions with humorous scenes, making both work side by side. Plus, while most of the time things turn out to be fine at the end, which I love, they don't always give simple answers to the problems described. And they don't mind going a bit further with what they show than Star Trek ever would.

So, the erotic holodeck-scenes in "Primal Urges" are quite graphic (at least for the average American taste, I suppose, and for a mainstream television series). And since most Moclans are male and live in male-male-relationships, all the scenes contain guys only. Plus, they include kink! MM kink! Which, as the more avid readers among you know, is exactly my cup of tea.

Now, the problem is, that kink often isn't depicted very positively on mainstream television. It's either shown as something dark and bad or it is ridiculed. A plot about porn addiction in a series that has become famous for its unique humour holds the risk of both. But, to my surprise and delight, I found that neither turned out to be true. Of course porn addiction is depicted as being destructive, and rightfully so. And of course, the erotic scenes can't be taken too seriously. But, as a kinky person, I didn't have the feeling that this special erotic preference is depicted as being dangerous, sick, not even more odd than other sexual variations.

The most BDSMy scene that is shown is a dungeon scenario, with Bortus as the prisoner and a holographic warden as his counterpart. Now, as you might know, I don't care all that much about non-consensual dark scenarios, but the way it is depicted I have to admit that I loved it. I am going to describe the scene for you (I've looked up the English original conversation):

The scene begins with Bortus entering the holodeck and starting the simulation. The room turns into a medivial prison cell (with torches and all that). There are shackles hanging from the walls, but Bortus doesn't make use of them, he just crouches down in front of the wall vis-à-vis the cell door. The door is unlocked from outside and a warden steps in, carrying a battle axe and a plate with food. Warden: "Your supper, prisoner." He throws the plate at Bortus' feet. Bortus looks up at him: "Please, Sir, may I have some water?" Warden: "Very well." He turns around, leaves and comes back with a wooden bucket filled with water. He takes some of it out with a scoop and holds the scoop close to Bortus. But when Bortus wants to take it, the warden suddenly pulls the scoop back, takes a mouthful of water himself and spits it at Bortus, laughing. Bortus: "I beg you to release me from this dungeon. I have done nothing wrong." Warden: "What is your name, prisoner?" Bortus: "Cheston, my name is Cheston." Warden: "How badly do you want to get out of this prison, Cheston?" Bortus: "Very badly. I am to be executed in the morning." Warden: "Perhaps we can make an arrangement." He starts taking off his suit of armour. But Bortus objects: "No, I can not. I am a virgin in that way." The warden starts turning around angrily: "Then you shall die in the morning, Cheston!" He starts to leave. Quickly Bortus stands up and cries out: "Wait!" The warden turns around again. Bortus: "If there is no other way, then I suppose I must do what you ask of me." He takes a step forward closer to the warden and adds: "And more." The warden puts down the bucket, takes off a belt of his armour and walks towards Bortus. Here the scenes ends and the rest is left to our imagination.

Is this scene and the dialogue clichéd? Oh yes, definitely! In my opinion it's a hilarious parody and can't be taken all too seriously. However, to me it seems like a parody not from someone who looks at kink from the outside. To me it feels like an homage created by someone who understands and appreciates the power dynamic many kinksters seek. And even though it can't be taken too seriously, I have to admit that I find the scene quite erotic in its own way. I also love the wording and intonation. I might be wrong, but isn't the language a bit like what some kinksters might use for traditional upper class school or historical scenarios?

What impressed me the most, though, is how well the topic of consensual non-consent is covered here, in a way that makes the scene attractive even for me. First of all, how more topping from the bottom can one have? It is Bortus' holodeck program we watch, and the warden is just a holodeck figure, doing what Bortus has programmed him to do. Secondly, it is Bortus who in a way initiates the whole scene by asking to be released and by finally agreeing to give the warden his reward for helping him. The greatest part of the dialogue, though, is the very end in my opinion. When Bortus not only agrees to do what the warden wants him to, but on his own initiative adds that he must do even more.

So, my conclusion: My currently most loved TV series showed an episode which contained kink. And instead of spoiling it, they managed to depict kink in a funny way and even push some of my buttons as a kinkster. Sometimes watching television can make for a wonderful close of the day!
