Emily's Bath #SatSpanks

I've just released Book 24 of EXPLORATIONS, Emily's Bath. This week's snippet comes from the moment before the bath itself, when Mrs. Smith (trainer of brides) is explaining how she'll be preparing Victorian Emily to wear the aide-mari (think lace thong) her bridegroom has chosen.
“Many a house-guest has been honored of a winter’s night with the sight of a young wife’s charms; this sort of display is a fundamental part of the Great Drama. Imagine the scene: two easy chairs by the fire, two gentlemen with cigars and brandy; between them you stand, Miss Orn, undressed to your aide-mari. 
“To the guest, whose envious eyes you can see centered on your carefully prepared charms, so delicately covered, the sight conveys other stirring images as well, especially the tableau of the charms’ preparation: did you resist? had you to be beaten before you submitted to the shameful ceremony? what sort of naughtiness made part of the proceedings? did your maid’s touch linger longer than was strictly necessary, and did you sigh? did you beg your maid to serve in any immodest way? did the maid consent, but on condition that you yourself serve in like capacity? were you detected by the master, and did he, cane in hand, place you side by side over a bolster? in the firelight, can the cane’s lovely traces be discerned around the edges of the aide-mari?” 
Through her long series of imaginary questions I tried desperately to remain motionless, though my hands and my knees struggled against me; at her last words, though, my right knee won the battle and bent ever so slightly. The effect of this motion in the region under discussion was such that a sound escaped my mouth, an “Oh” that must have been satisfying in the extreme to Mrs. Smith.
Here's the blurb (buy the book here):
"I very much regret to say that I may not answer the pressing question you have just asked me," said Mrs. Smith. "By the most ancient custom it is a bridegroom’s privilege to enlighten his bride in the principal matters of the matrimonial act. But I do know, and very well, what you are feeling, Miss Orn. I know because I have sat where you are sitting now. As a young bride I too had my initiation into my new condition. I know what it is to have another seated where I am seated, and yet to be ignorant of this terrible secret, the unknown act that is to come only a few days from now. You know what the other--what I--can see and what I will do, that under my hands and eyes I have, here and now, that most tender, most private place--that which you have been taught to think your virtue, for which now you have begun to fear you-know-not-what--and that I know what your lovely young virtue will undergo, but will not tell, even as I prepare it for your bridegroom's use."

In the 24th book of Explorations, fantasy-Emily's punishment at the hands of her husband Charles continues in the modern story, while in the Victorian notebook of Emily's great-great-grandmother, Victorian Emily is prepared by Mrs. Smith to wear the very special undergarment her bridegroom has chosen for her.

This book of Explorations contains fiction elaborating the following sorts of fantasy that you may wish to avoid: Mf, Ff, MMf, anal, caning, spanking, watersports. It's intended for over-18 audiences who, like me, are interested in exploring the lines between pleasure and pain, dominance and submission, and fantasy and reality. All characters depicted are consenting adults.

Read all the Saturday Spankings!

  1. Emily, an intriguing snippet. I gather Victorian Emily is being prepared by Mrs. Smith to be a provocative showcase for her husband's pleasure, if she's to be put on display for his male house guests. I suppose Emily's husband-to-be chose Mrs. Smith especially for the training she can provide. Interesting. BTW, I'm originally from Greenwich, CT.

    1. Thanks, Kathryn. One thing the snippets don't quite convey is that Edmund, Victorian Emily's fiancé, hasn't chosen Mrs. Smith as much as he's been permitted to establish credit with her. Mrs. Smith is my Victorian take on the Anne-Marie role from Story of O; she prepares brides not only to submit to their bridegrooms, but also to live their vocations as powerful actors in their own right in the drama of BDSM.

      In real reality, I'm not from Greenwich, but I've spent a lot of time there. ;)

    1. :D It's a little out there, I realize. Remember that it's real-Emily ("me"), telling the story of fantasy-Emily "finding" the notebook. It's a way to write out my fantasies without suggesting that I'd ever want them to become "really real."

  13. Hey, this has nothing whatsoever to do with your post or #spanking. (Although I'm sure it's a fine, FINE, post, and #spanking is a noble pursuit.) I just stopped in to leave a ... comment. "HI." There. I've done it now. I feel good about it, too. Emily Tilted, ISWYDT.
