Will Hilton spank Savannah? Can Domestic Discipline save their failing marriage?

Preface

Savannah

I was lying in bed tossing and turning. I couldn’t stop stressing about what tomorrow would be like. Tomorrow night, I was going to receive the very first spanking of my entire thirty year-old life.

Hilton, my husband, was finally going to be coming back home. We had been separated for over six months now. After many months of attempting to work things out unsuccessfully Hilton was ready to divorce me. Feeling desperate, I begged him to give our relationship one last try.

He agreed to trial Christian marriage counseling as our final attempt at reconciliation. It was my idea but it hadn’t exactly gone as I had planned. The pastor’s solutions to our discord were not at all what I had anticipated them to be, but they were at the very least worth a try.

Hilton was coming home. We weren’t getting a divorce. I got what I wanted, I guess. I just hadn’t anticipated his coming home carrying such a high price for my bottom to pay.

The pastor suggested that we try a new type of lifestyle. He introduced us to a traditional Christian marriage dynamic; a model in which the husband was the leader of the home. He opened our eyes to a lifestyle we hadn’t realized even existed. He suggested we trial Domestic Discipline (DD) as a tool to maintain our God given roles of husband and wife.

I wasn’t sure if it was a life I could or even wanted to live, but I wanted my family back and I wanted Hilton to come home desperately. He promised he would come home if I consented to him being the head of our household. He wanted to try Domestic Discipline. He was confident that DD would change things for us. So with very few options and a marriage I wasn’t ready to give up on I signed the Domestic Discipline contract and agreed to submit to my husband’s leadership and authority.

Now I was having second thoughts. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was even getting myself into. The last few times I had seen Hilton his new air of authority had been both frightening and surprisingly arousing. His bossiness was kind of sexy and his promises of consequences really thrilled me at times.

Now it was going to be for real though, it was not just empty threats anymore. According to the “new” Hilton they were never threats anyway. He said they were promises. The thoughts of real punishments didn’t seem to have the same appeal to me as the fantasies. Tomorrow, Hilton was going to put actions behind all those threats, or promises as he would say. Thinking about having my bottom bared and spanked thoroughly didn’t seem sexy at all anymore.

I was nervous to say the least. I signed a contract. I agreed to allow Hilton to discipline me as he saw fit. Not only spankings, but other forms of discipline too. The contract included corner time, loss of privileges, writing lines and bedroom time; basically any punishment that my husband saw fit.

To get things started, tomorrow night, his first night back home, I was getting an initiation spanking. A spanking to wipe away all the wrongs of the past and a preview of what I was in for should I choose to break the rules in the future.

He warned me that the spanking would be hard. He told me that it had to be. He said that the punishment had to be bad enough to deter me from wanting to get into trouble again in the future. He promised he was going to spank me hard enough that I would dread ever being spanked for punishment again.

I had asked him tons of questions about what the spanking was going to be like but he wouldn’t give me any details. So, here I was, restless in bed, losing sleep, trying to figure out exactly what I was in for.

More importantly, I was trying to figure out how I was going to make myself submit to a “hard” spanking. I couldn’t understand how women were able to make themselves undress, get into position and stay in position while their husbands spanked their bare bottoms repeatedly. Why didn’t they just stand up and run away?

I knew that there were plenty of women out there that did this kind of thing though. I had done a lot of reading about submissive wives recently and although most of the women seemed to dislike the pain of a spanking they always said that the benefits that Domestic Discipline had on their marriages made submitting to punishments totally worth it. They actually often described feelings of being loved, wanted and taken care of after punishment spankings. Many even said that after bringing spanking into their marriages they started having better sex than they could have ever imagined.

I assumed Hilton would bare my bottom to spank me but I couldn’t be sure. Maybe he would spank me over my clothes. I hoped he would spank me over my clothes but I doubted it. He did say it would be “hard”. I wondered if he would spank me hard enough to make me cry. I didn’t want to cry.

My mind was running wild. I had to stop thinking. I couldn’t back out. I needed my husband home. He had to come home.

I decided to attempt to calm my mind with prayer. I got on my knees beside my bed folded my hands together and prayed aloud, “Dear God, I can’t thank you enough for leading Hilton and I to Pastor James. He restored hope in our marriage when we were both convinced it was doomed. Tomorrow, Hilton’s coming home, God. Although we are not positive, we believe that Domestic Discipline is your will for our marriage. We believe you led us in this direction and I believe you will help us both get through this. If of course, this is your plan. Please God, give me the strength to obey Hilton and please God give him the strength to lead our family in a way that is pleasing to you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.”

After praying my nerves eased quickly. Confident that I was following God’s plan, I put my trust in him. I closed my eyes and finally drifted off to sleep.

Hilton

I couldn’t sleep. I was more worried about tomorrow than I cared to admit. Tomorrow I was returning home after being separated from Savannah for over six months. We had finally come to an agreement. We had spent so much time arguing about all of the things that we wanted to see change I had almost given up. We could not reach a compromise and I was ready to get a divorce. I was ready to call it quits. She begged me for one last chance. She asked me to try Christian marriage counseling. I agreed but honestly I was very doubtful that even a pastor could find a solution to the problems we had had.

Now here I was, preparing to go back home. We were ready to start a new life and the first thing I needed to do to get that started was spank Savannah. Spanking her wasn’t going to be easy for me. I was so excited about going home, so relieved that I was going to have my family back. But so nervous about what needed to be done. What had to be done.

Savannah and I agreed to adopt a Domestic Discipline lifestyle after meeting with our pastor. When I got home I was going to be the head of our household. I was going to lead my family. The final decisions were always going to be mine. It felt like a lot of responsibility to take on; a huge weight set upon my shoulders.

The initiation spanking would symbolize our new beginning and provide an end to all of our wrongdoings in the past. I really missed Savannah. I just wanted to go home and make love to her. I wanted to sleep with her nestled close to me. I wanted to hold her tight in my arms. Instead I had to give her an initiation spanking. The sex and cuddling could come only after that.

I had spent a lot of time thinking about the spanking and I had it completely planned out in my mind. I knew exactly how I intended to spank her. I knew exactly where I was going to sit and exactly what I planned to spank her with and exactly how many strikes I planned to administer.

What I didn’t know was how she was going to respond. That was what I was really concerned about. I wasn’t sure if she would obey me. I didn’t want to have to force her to comply. I didn’t know how she would handle the pain. I wasn’t sure if she would cry. I really didn’t want to make her cry. I was afraid she would hate me for spanking her so hard.

I had read that a lot of wives were aroused by spankings but I didn’t think she would be. She had always been very reserved sexually. I planned to touch her erotically while I spanked her. I wanted to mix some pleasure with the pain. I needed to make it tolerable. I didn’t want to be cruel. The manual said mixing pleasure and pain was okay as long as it wasn’t a punishment spanking. This was technically an initiation spanking.

I wondered if I would even know how to spank her when the time actually came. I hoped she didn’t resist me. I questioned if it would be more difficult to chastise and position an uncooperative adult. My only experience administering spankings had been very few, quick swats to the clothed bottoms of our young children.

I was exhausted both mentally and physically. I needed to stop thinking. I needed to sleep. I knew all this worrying was pointless. I knew worrying wouldn’t change anything. That was a lesson I had learned long ago.

Before I went to sleep I always prayed. That night I gave my worries to God. I asked him to guide me in leading my family and for the strength to guide and lead Savannah and our children the way I was called to. After I prayed and left my worries with God, I closed my eyes and went immediately to sleep.

“Savannah's Surrender” is an excellent book with a strong “DD” emphasis and conflict. This is the first book featuring these characters, which I always enjoy, because once I get to know characters, it's nice to read their continuing stories in subsequent novels. In general, I think the premise is one that many can relate to – Hilton and Savannah are a married couple with a rocky marriage, and as a “last ditch effort” they've decided that they are going to attempt a DD dynamic to try to save their marriage. I was intrigued by this premise, and discovered later that their story is based on a true story. One thing I dislike about some DD books or stories I've read is when there's an unrealistic portrayal of initiating DD with a couple. I think there needs to be a very good balance between what is entertaining, and what is realistic. I think Lilyanna Rose does this wonderfully. The book reads a bit more like a dual journal than a story, which makes it a fairly unique. It's somewhat informal, there is little dialogue, and aspects that are outside of the focus of this particular story (such as secondary characters) take a backseat in favor of simply telling this one couple's story. I enjoyed that, as it was quite different from the typical work of fiction, and it also gave plenty of room for discussing the main characters' thoughts and feelings. This is one thing lacking in many DD books, but again, it was done well here. I also enjoyed that it's told from both the perspective of the wife and husband. There is a decided Christian flavor, as the person who suggests the DD arrangement to them is the couple's pastor. Aspects such as a wife's duty to obey her husband and his headship in their marriage do come up, which I found interesting. That said, it is not a “CDD” book, and I wouldn't classify it as such. There are decided Christian elements, but I didn't find it preachy or "squeaky clean" (and, I must confess, I like neither preachy nor squeaky clean.). I found the story engaging enough that I wanted to keep reading, curious as to how things would play out. Often in DD books there is a fair amount of “gratuitous spanking” and the girl is getting tossed over the guy's knee in the opening chapter. While that's all well and good if you're looking for a good spanking scene, personally I prefer a real story with established trust. I loved how Lilyanna gives us a real story. Yes, spanking is mentioned, but the book is about the couple, not gratuitous spanking. That was very well done – a good balance for those who want a good story and a good spanking. At first I had to struggle a bit with my own personal prejudices while reading. The form of DD this couple eventually follows is a “prescribed method,” complete with a handbook from the pastor, and I have a hard time distinguishing between my own personal feelings on this, and the fact that this is merely a plot device in a work of fiction. As an experienced “taken in hand,” I find that prescriptive DD is often a recipe for disaster, and don't recommend this approach. However, in this particular story, it works, as how the couple explores the prescribed method of beginning DD did advance the central conflict. I haven't read the sequel, but it left me, as a reader, wondering how the prescribed method would develop over time. Would the couple find their own brand of DD works better for them? Do they have challenges as a result of trying to adhere to a “one size fits all” approach? I liked the tension that was kept at an even keel, but not over-the-top and frustrating for the readers. The couple encountered and dealt with very real challenges, and as a reader, I was eager to see them resolve their differences and be reunited. I felt this book was very well done, especially for those who want a realistic, engaging, fast-paced DD story.
