A Butt Musing

Here's a thought to all the bottoms out there. Now, I don't spank guys (not that there's anything wrong with that). Purely hetero. Purely into women. But do any of you hirsute bottoms, male or female, think about shaving your behinds before going to play parties? If I was a lady, spanking a man's behind, I'd want to be sure there wasn't some kinds of rat's nest back there.

  1. Hmmm, no, I've never thought about that. Some men's butts are, well, smooth as a baby's bottom, ya know.

    But shaving? Think razor stubble. I recommend a regular waxing routine for those furry bums.

  2. Ker-blinks! I... I... I can't believe you asked! I gotta give you a ginormous HUG for that, Craig.

    I would believe that those who expose their fannies would want that area to look tidy.

    Most, not all I scene with shave completely. Especially the men. I played with one lady who shaved in the front but stopped when it came to her anus. I suggested she continue, removing it all. She politely refused. I am still baffled, but it's her butt so it's her call.

    I played with one gentleman who shaved completely until one night he decided not to. It was a complete surprise to me. He was a hairy beast! I couldn't concentrate, even if he closed his legs. The paddle just swooshed the hair around! All I could see were these tiny alien threads of black.

    Some hair, sure, you can look passed and some hair, well, should be set on fire.

    So one might ask the question. Why are you looking INTO their butts? It is the same reason why I'm looking AT their butts.

    (p.s.s. See what happens when you ask people to de-lurk?!)

  3. BLECCCHHHHH! Thank you for reminding me of yet another reason why I'm so grateful I'm a bottom, and not a top!

    Re. the men, I'm not sure whether you're talking about the actual butt cheeks being hairy, or... y'know, in between. Actually, I don't want to know.

    I know some people get waxed around the back door. I think I'd rather submit to root canal, myself. -- Erica

  4. I don't spank guys either... and don't know if male bottoms shave or not. I will say though that I've spanked two females that had very-VERY hairy bottoms. I do wish they would have shaved. Obviously it's up to them, but I'm certainly allowed my own preferences too. It simply didn't work for me. One practical issue beyond the aesthetics is... with too much hair, you can't see how the bottom is marking up.

  5. Hermione:

    Ah, waxing. A good suggestion. This, from a guy who thinks wax is for cars and candles...

    Thanks for delurking. You're adding some pretty awesome color commentary to the blog.

  7. Erica:

    The idea of someone taking a tongue depressor and rubbing hot wax on my anus just doesn't do anything for me for some reason. Then there's the ripping and the screaming...and that's just from me watching! ;-)

  8. Thanks for chiming in, Todd. Appreciate the de-lurk and the comments.

    I've been fortunate. The women I've played with either have been naturally light on the fur side or have taken careful hygiene issues into consideration.

  9. hi craig. first time poster. found you yesterday from bonnie's site and was....oh so intrigued. So here goes....i, thank god, and not a hairy individual so i do not need to worry about that. i do keep the rest trimed/waxed to a nice neat shortness. But if i were a top, i would not want to look at a hairy bottom. i do think that would be distracting. And to your question, yes i do think about it. i want to always be sexy and inviting to my top, Ru. so there you have it... i do plan on popping in when i can. you seem an interesting character and i do like that. thanks!

  10. Hey, Lu! Welcome! Thanks for joining in, commenting so thoroughly and complimenting me all in the same comment.

    Yes, I try to be both interesting AND a character. Hope you stay!

  11. When I top, I really appreciate when a male bottom gets a waxing before seeing me. It is so smooth and sexy. Not to mention, a guy who goes to this trouble is probably also very careful about staying "fresh" back there.

    I do recommend waxing. I've had it done and it is such an exquisite pain. The butt area barely hurts at all compared to the labia! If the girls can go through THAT, surely the guys who liked to be spanked can do it.

  12. Us wimpy tops can just wait for a smooth bottom to come across our laps. The idea of getting that done "back there" makes my eyes water just thinking about it...

  13. Craig, ... you make up for your "wimpy" by the bruises on your hand. ;)

    ~Connie

    ReplyDelete
  14. No bruising, Connie. Just a general swelling, redness-leaning-toward-purple and some split skin, but as a bottom to be compassionate and understanding and they'll just laugh and laugh...

  15. I'll just smirk. ~*~ I promise.

  16. It is my smirk. I apologize to you, and to Erica for the confusion. I'll remember to sign my name to each post from now on.

  17. It was a typical Erica kind of comment, so I appreciate you stepping up. But, Connie, really? Smirking at me? You? Shameful.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'll join Connie in the smirk. (high-fiving Connie)

    If you think you're going to get compassion from me about your hand, after how that hand whaled the bejesus out of me, think again, a**hat.

  19. Dear A. Nony Mous (aka ERICA SCOTT!):

    I DID NOT ask any bottoms to be compassionate and understanding about my red, swollen hand. IN FACT, I stated JUST THE OPPOSITE!

    And, did I get this straight? Did you just call me an "asshat"??? In a public forum no less???

    Yeah. You'd better go hide under that friggin' bed, because if I got my hands on you I think you'd be very unhappy to learn of the results (grabbing for the new ebony wood paddle...).

  20. Soooooooo... correct me if I'm wrong,... that, just there, between you two, is an example of bratting, right? With positive results. (I know that sounded weird)

    I'm trying to get a clear definition of what occurs in spanking circles (compared to BDSM). I'm treading cautiously because I know you two ~know~ one another so it's unique between you two, so ... yeah.

    Thanks for any feedback, and sorry to hijack your topic, and fly off on a tangent.

    ~Connie
    (I'm not sure whether to high-five Erica back or say a prayer for her!!! Lol!)

  21. Say a prayer. Trust me.

    Yes, that's an example. A more typical "brattiness," which Erica knows I can't stand, but because it's her and was so funny/silly, I still managed to laugh out loud.

    Typically, her bratting is more sarcastic and intelligent, but bratting can range from little girl complaints to just dumb raspberries. Of course, I'm not the one to really comment, so perhaps my next blog entry should be on this very topic...which seems pretty good to me.

    Thanks, Connie! You're keeping me from drying out on topics to post!

  22. I'm lovin' the Q & A. Thank YOU, Craig!

  23. Well, since the original topic of this thread is shot to hell, I'm going to give feedback to Connie. :-)

    A fellow blogger recently wrote a wonderful thorough rant about his own spanking pet peeves, and one of them was "over-the-top bratting." I posted a comment to him, and the following is a direct quote from it:

    "As a feisty spankee who likes to sass, I resent how the unbridled brats give the rest of us a bad name. There is an art and subtlety to good bratting. It’s a tickle of a feather, not an anvil dropping on a foot. Provoking a bit to elicit a reaction is one thing; angering and annoying the bejesus out of people is another. Learn the difference."

    BDSMers in general seem to detest brats. Spankos like them to a point, but they have to know when to stop. And they need to be clever.

    And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going back into hiding. And this atheist will take your prayers! (grinning)

  24. Erica, you really should share your comment to me that happened the first night we played at the Lair. It was both an excellent, intelligent and well-timed bratting and a good sign of our play relationship to come, for I understood it exactly as how it was meant and used to great effect.

  25. I appreciate your insight, Erica. :)

    It does seem there are a few types of bratting, perhaps it really comes down to an understanding between those involved.

    As Craig stated, "... for I understood it exactly as how it was meant ..."

    Bingo.

  26. You need to know eachother to brat well-different tolerance levels, different sensitivities and different life circumstances all mean a different perception-so you must watch the reactions and read the body language.
