Corner time really is required for a proper punishment

There are so very many reasons why corner time is such a great addition to any punishment.  I use the term corner time somewhat generically as I apply it in so many different situations and very few of them actually involve a corner.  But each and every one them can add so much to the overall dynamic and effectiveness of a proper punishment.  Let’s take a look at many of the different ways that I utilize corner time and why I find it to be effective.

The first is the before the spanking use of corner time.  This is a time when we are playing on the nervousness someone experiences before they are to be spanked.  In most cases within my world of private discipline, a young lady has waited some time for this punishment and the moment has finally arrived.  Her nerves are shot and she is quite nervous that the moment has finally arrived.  She knows that is going to be painful, far more painful than she would ever want, and the anticipation of it actually happening is almost too much.  Good! When I have her look back on her punishment I do not want there to be good memories.  If the actual anticipation is one of the most difficult parts, then we need to use this to our advantage as disciplinarians.  In fact, I will take it a couple steps farther.  She needs to now shed that last little bit of a security blanket that she has, her clothes, and get fully naked.  Once naked, and feeling more exposed and vulnerable than ever, she now gets to wait for an undisclosed period of time before she is spanked.  This gives her plenty of time to think about her actions and behaviors and what it is in her life that has brought her to this very place in time.  I may even begin to lay out the implements that may or may not be used on her, to further add to the anticipation, as she wonders what each of them will feel like on her bottom.

Another great variation of this is after she has had time to think long and hard is to put her into position.  This now feels like the moment, it is finally here, it is finally going to happen, but that does not mean that I am in any hurry to get started.  Now she feels even more exposed and vulnerable, but she is not in control of this situation, I am.  By this point in time she is just ready to get the spanking over with, as the wait is harder than anything.  This can be highly enhanced by choosing a proper position, like having her grab her ankles.  Fully naked, bent over grabbing her ankles, presenting everything that is private to her to me and the world…without a single smack to her bottom, her punishment has already begun and this is an experience that she would not like to repeat anytime soon.

The next variation of corner time that I often use is a break to let her bottom recover a bit.  There are many implements that when used effectively will often create some numbness as the body begins to produce endorphins to combat the pain.  While continuing to spank when it is not being received as painfully as I would prefer can indeed help with the long term discomfort she will experience, I see it as a lost opportunity.  Yes, I want to create a very sore bottom that hurts for a few days, but I also want her to experience as much discomfort as she can during the course of her spanking. If it becomes clear to me that this part of her spanking is somehow easier, I will simply stop.  She is left in position, told not to move, and once again has no idea what is going to happen next. She does not know if the punishment is over, if I am taking a break, or if I am switching implements.  Perfect! Midway through her punishment she is once again feeling fear and apprehension, two things that help make the overall punishment experience effective.  Unfortunately for her, I am just allowing the production of endorphins to decrease so she will get the full benefit of the rest of her correction.

The next step in and one of the more common uses of corner time is for it to involve considerable discomfort all on its own.  This helps a lot when punishing someone who has a spanking fetish.  They may indeed include some small aspects of corner time within their fantasies because it has a very childish aspect to it.  But within their fantasies they rarely consider how uncomfortable and annoying corner time can be made to be.  Standing in the corner before, during, or after a spanking may indeed be boring, and even a little embarrassing, but it does little to provide discomfort. With a little creativity corner time can become a punishment all in itself.  Position is everything and adding knees or large muscle groups into the equation can quickly increase the effectiveness.  A basic first step is to simply require the naughty young lady to kneel on a hard wood floor, or a brick fire place mantle.  Hands behind her head with her elbows touching the wall and then requiring her feet to be lifted off the ground quickly enhances the overall punishment experience.

On many occasions I have chosen to make the corner time very physically demanding, especially for those young ladies who have come to me to help them with some sort of fitness or weight loss goal.  They seem to think that they do not have the mental fortitude to get themselves to the gym, or to work out hard enough for proper results.  But when put in a physically demanding corner time position, such as a wall sit, knowing that the punishment for breaking that position is a dozen bare bottom swats with a school paddle, they quickly become quite aware of how truly motivated they can be.  I have watched more than one young lady in a stressful corner time position, with her whole body shaking, body covered with sweat, prove to herself how capable she really is of pushing her body, she just needed the proper motivation.  The challenging positions also require her to focus and she cannot really allow herself to just zone out and relax after her punishment, it takes a concentrated effort to maintain such positions and it is clear to her mind and her body that the punishment is not over even if the spanking has stopped.

The most common form of corner time is simply for a young lady to be placed somewhere quiet, with her red bottom on display, for her to reflect on the punishment she just received.  I rarely make it quite that easy, and tend to throw in at least part of one of the elements previously discussed.  One way to enhance it, without increasing the level of discomfort, is to add an embarrassing element to it.  I believe that at no point in any punishment should someone be humiliated, but I do believe in using embarrassment as a learning tool.  I have placed freshly spanked young ladies, fully naked; in front of a window on many occasions (once for the duration of the water show at the Bellagio, facing the fountains and the 1000 people watching).  I have also chosen positions that while exposed and embarrassing, can be maintained for long periods of time, such as legs spread as wide as possible with hands on a small stool.  Once again, this is different than just being required to stand in a corner and helps to keep her focused on the punishment she just received.  Of course, even if the spanking is over, I would never inform her of that, which keeps the anticipation level high during any phase of corner time.

Corner time is not just a time out for kids, it is a highly effective form of discipline between consenting adults.  It can be mild or be made to be extremely intense.  If done properly it can be as effective as the spanking itself.  The next time a deserving young lady requires a proper punishment for real infractions in her life, put in the time and effort to include various levels and types of corner time.  It would be an injustice to her and her behavior to provide her with anything less.
