Inquiring Minds

This morning as I checked out my backside in the mirror to see if there were any visible reminders from last night*, a thought occurred to me. It was totally random, but it stuck in my head.

So what was that thought?

Does spanking tone your butt? Call me crazy, but as I looked in the mirror, it seemed to be that my butt was looking better than it had just a few months before. It looked more firm and toned. Since I haven't changed my diet or exercise habits, the only thing I can think of (aside from wishful thinking) is that spanking must have something to do with it.

So I did a little research. I was happy to see that I was not the only person that had this crazy thought. According to this link, in response to the question "Does spanking firm and tone your butt?", the answer is


So now we can chalk another benefit up to spanking. Not only does it discourage bad behavior, relieve stress, ease guilt, reaffirm our roles and probably ten other things that I can't think of right now, but it also helps make us look better from behind.

Now I wonder if there's a link between muscle tone in the arms and spanking...



*If you're wondering how last night went, I did get spanked, but he did offer a little grace in that it was less than he had originally planned. And this time my little hero interfered a lot sooner. As soon as he saw the paddle, even before a single swat was given, he climbed on my backside and started barking at Steve. So we waited until he fell asleep under the blanket before proceeding, only to have him come running out to protect me as soon as he heard the first swat. Needless to say, we ended up having to put him out for the remainder of the spanking.

    1. When I first thought of it, I was thinking well that's crazy. I totally cracked up when I realized someone else had thought of it too.

  2. Hmmmm...here I was attributing it to the gym, but perhaps all of those 'get to the gym this week' reminders played a role too;)

    1. There you go Tess. Just tell him you only need to go to the gym on weeks you've stayed out of trouble. LOL

      Of course if you do both, you might get to the buns of steel part faster. Then you can join the ranks of us that have broke an implement with our booties.

    1. Usually if I clench, Steve will stop and tell me to relax. With the spanking I got the other night, I was trying unsuccessfully to avoid clenching and relax into it, but he didn't catch it. As a result, the next morning my butt felt like I had did a major workout focusing on those muscles.

  5. Hey Dana - Definitely another benefit up to spanking! LOL There probably is a link between muscle tone in the arms and spanking - more exercise ya know. ;)

    Oh I do love that dog of yours - such a little protector! Hope he got a treat (when Steve wasn't looking.) :D

    Blessings,
    Cat

    1. Maybe I can do an experiment on the muscle tone in the arms. I can measure Steve's arm today and then again in a month and see if the "exercise" changes anything.

  6. I know I commented already, but once again POOF!

    I find this hilarious, because Emma and I were just talking about this. Of course HER butt is more firm than mine *wink*. Naturally I have to phone her and tell her we have proof why!

    1. I found your first comment Willie. For some reason, Blogger's spam filter caught it. Go figure.

      It brings new meaning to the phrase "whipping something into shape."

  7. Hahaha...that's the best reason I've heard yet for this lifestyle. I can improve my marriage and tone my bottom all at once!

    1. Thanks Grace. That little dog is hilarious. He's all of 6 pounds, but determined he's going to protect me, no matter who he has to protect me from. When we let him back in, he immediately curled up beside me and gave Steve this look that was clearly saying "How dare you touch her."

  9. Wow, thanks Dana, something I've wondered about too. Another one of the many benefits of ttwd. I bet it does also strengthen muscle tone in the arms. We'll have to watch to see if our husbands' 'spanking arms' become bigger than the other lol

    Hugs

    ps love your little hero. Such a trooper!

    1. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that wondered. Here I was thinking I was crazy.

      I'm sure it does affect muscle tone in the spanking arm. One of these days I'll have to get around to measuring Steve's arms for a period of time. Or maybe I should just measure his spanking arm in comparison with the other one.

  10. Wow, Dana - I should have a bum like a ballet dancer! I laughed at your comment on clenching, Ian isn't so nice about it as Steve - he lowers his voice about an octave and growls threats.
    interesting post.
    hugs

    1. After this week Lillie, I should have one too. Note to self: Don't make a bet on consistency when you know you already have a stressful week ahead.

      The only time Steve gets that growly voice during a spanking is if I throw my hand back, kick my feet up or move out of whatever position he's put me in. I don't do the hand much anymore because it accidentally got smacked once, but my feet have a way of flying up.

      I made the mistake of complaining to Steve about how sore my bottom was as a result of the clenching. His response? Well that's what you get for clenching.

  11. Hi
    This is my first time posting. Just like to say you are very funny and I enjoy your blog.
    Two things about this post I liked the most
    1 I am so happy that my rear end will probably look better than anyone I know soon as I get a lot of spankings lol
    2 you dog is a cool dude. Way to go. I have two dogs a little minpin who goes mad barking when I'm getting spanked but my hero has to be my huge belgian Shepard who literally attacks my hubs and tries to bite his arm as soon as he realises what's going on. For my hubs's protection we have to leave them out side before we even try to get ready for the act.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad you enjoy the blog.

      At the rate I'm going, I should be able to be a butt model any time now. I told Steve about my research the other night. He laughed and then said my butt was looking more toned these days.

      My little hero is a minpin. So far he hasn't tried to bite Steve, although he will bite at whatever implement is in his hand. Mostly he just barks and growls at him, gets between us to interfere with his swing or lays down across my backside.

We love to hear what you think, but please be polite.
