Have you noticed it is February? I certainly have because the month of the whip is well under way. We are now on day 6 which means 12 strokes of the whip today (remember the numbers are doubled this year) and my bum is, so far, responding well to the challenge although I am fairly sure he is being more deliberate and hitting harder than last year.
I have long had a love/hate relationship with the whip and this continues unabated it would seem. You see I hate the sensation, I am not a lover of the sting and boy does this evil little rod sting like a bitch but when it is done I absolutely adore the marks it leaves. Not only do they look wonderful but I can trace them and feel the raised hot welts beneath my finger tips which dance and twitch as I explore them. The whole thing makes me wet and in that moment, looking into the mirror and seeing myself marked by him I want more. Yesterday I asked, hypothetically, if I requested more could I offset the amount against the next day. The answer was a very definite no. Apparently there is to be no bargaining the numbers at all because “I want you to know you have taken each days count. I want to be proud of you but most of all I want you to be proud of yourself at the end of this” Words to focus the mind and dampen the pussy if ever I heard them…
After my post last week about this task I thought I should clarify a few things. Firstly the numbers, which seem to have caused some confusions. The maths looks like this….
Feb 1st = 2
Feb 2nd = 4
Feb 3rd = 6
Feb 4th = 8
Feb 5th = 10
Feb 6th = 12
All the way through the month until you get to
Feb 28th = 56
Then you add up all the numbers in the right-hand column to get the total number of whip strokes over the whole month….2+4+6+8+10+12+14+16+18+20+22+24+26+28+30+32+34+36+38+40+42+44+46+48+50+52+54+56 = 812!!!!
Yes that is right the total number of strokes of the whip I will have received at the end of this task will be 812! That number terrifies me to be honest. It is beyond the limits of what I can imagine doing, it just looks so massive and yet I know he intends for me to succeed and so I am trusting in him to help me get there.
Secondly the whip itself; it is not a bull whip but a dressage whip that was purchased in a tack shop
