Me: Thanks for doing this interview!
Jenny: You're welcome!
Me: Tell us a little about yourself.
Jenny: I'm a stay-at-home-mom with three beautiful girls. I'm 37 and have been married since I was 24.
Me: I know you don't want me to use your actual picture, but looking online I think you look a lot like her ... wouldn't you agree?
Jenny: You flatter me Katie :)
Me: Not at all! But let's get down to business :) How did you first get into domestic discipline?
Jenny: My sister-in-law. I've always been in awe of how great her relationship is with my brother. One night we had been drinking a lot of wine and I kept asking her about it, and finally she told me.
Me: That he spanks her?
Jenny: Yes, how she has rules that she gets punished for breaking, usually by getting spanked with a paddle or belt.
Me: Wow, what was your reaction?
Jenny: I was shocked at first. We were spanked growing up until a late age, or at least I was. Come to think of it, seems like kind of a double standard to stop spanking a boy at 12 and a girl at 16! But anyway, I was still really surprised to hear that. Part of me liked picturing her getting spanked too as she's great but sometimes she can be really controlling.
Me: Lol. So how did you first bring it up with your husband?
Jenny: I just said to him, "You know what, from now on, if I'm acting like a brat, just spank me. Let's see how it works."
Me: That's a pretty direct approach!
Jenny: I guess that's always how I've been :)
Me: What are his spankings like?
Jenny: They've changed a lot since we started. At first they were real tentative, like he was afraid of hurting me. I told him I was a big girl and to be a man about it. It was a pretty dumb thing to say :)
Me: Lol you are brave :) So he started giving you more serious punishments?
Jenny: Definitely. Since then he started spanking me a lot harder.
Me: What are common things he spanks you for?
Jenny: Oh the usual, backtalk, disrespect, not doing what he says. He never wrote out rules but I know at this point what will get me punished.
Me: Tell us about a recent spanking. Why he spanked you, what did he use ... give us the details.
Jenny: Well, one thing he's told me a number of times is not to talk about our finances with anyone else. He's really private about that stuff. A few weeks ago he heard me telling Rachel (same sister-in-law) how much more he was making in his new job. What can I say, sometimes I have a really big mouth. When she left, he whipped me.
Me: C'mon Jenny, we want details!
Jenny: OK well he told me to wait for me in our room. I went up and he came a few minutes later and pulled off his belt. I knew I was in for it big-time then. I pleaded with him that I was so sorry and not to spank me, but he just told me to pull down my jeans and panties. I did, he bent me over the bed, and gave me about two dozen with the belt.
Me: Did you cry a lot?
Jenny: Like crazy! I'm sure you know what it's like. Start off yelling OWWW a lot and crying out, then begging him to stop, then just sobbing and wailing until he decides in his infinite man wisdom that you've gotten enough discipline. I don't mean to complain, I directly disobeyed him and he punished me thoroughly like I needed. Still sucked though :)
Me: I know. Did he whip your thighs too?
Jenny: Low on the butt, maybe very top of my legs, but mainly my butt. It had deep red belt marks criss-crossed on it when he was finished.
Jenny: Then he gave me half hour of corner time which I really hate, before hugging me and comforting me and saying it was over.
Me: Corner time after spanking is the worst!
Jenny: It really is. I have to stand there with my nose touching the corner and hands at my side.
Me: You said earlier that you were spanked until a late age. I was spanked a lot growing up but was still surprised at how bad Tom's spankings were. How different is getting spanked as an adult for you?
Jenny: I guess they're pretty similar actually. I grew up in a Christian family with strict punishments, usually a whipping from Dad or a long session with Mom's hairbrush. Same whipping different guy now :) In both cases I hate the spanking itself, it's agony. But afterward I feel so much better.
Me: So it helped your relationship a lot?
Jenny: A ton. Like you can probably tell, I have a side of my personality that's always needed to be reined in. He gives me exactly what I need, and we almost never bicker or argue anymore. He's in charge, it's that simple. Not for everyone, but it works great for us. I would never go back.
Me: That's really nice to hear. Thanks so much for doing this interview with me today.
Jenny: You're very welcome. Good luck with your blog!
