Involuntary Movements

1 Feb

It’s like a facial tic, Tourette’s of the legs, epileptic seizures of the thighs. I’ve lost all communication with my calves and there is no stopping them: they curl protectively toward my clenching bottom.
It’s not a question of obedience. There is no bratty will at work here. There are invisible strings attaching the wooden spoon to my feet and, with each downward stroke, my lower extremities rise in reaction.
It’s quite unfair, then, when you deliver upon my thighs sharp reminders to hold my position, triggering yet another involuntary movement of my hand.

“Submit,” the spoon suggests. “Accept this,” it demands.
But my willful feet make nosy witnesses, straining to see the spots of deep pink blooming on my cheeks. My hands are natural Florence Nightingales, yearning to offer comfort to the wounded.
If I am to be disciplined for the ministerial work of my feet and hands, at least offer one concession: arrest them. Tie up those bad influences so they will no longer contribute to my delinquency. Tie them up so all that is left is me, submitting to you.

    Surely all efforts are fair when a wooden spoon is involved!

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:43 pm #

      I agree. We should have free reign to defend ourselves against such a biting implement.

  2. D February 1, 2011 at 10:34 am #

    Pink, There’s a time to perform a lap dance for me and a time to be still. I’ll keep that silky black rope at hand for those moments when your willpower melts.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

      You mean that silky black rope that you left at my house? I’ll be sure to reacquaint you with it this weekend.

  3. JON February 1, 2011 at 10:46 am #

    HAWT! Nothing wrong with a little squirming and wiggling! Lovely pictures as always too!

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:46 pm #

      Thanks, Jon! The second one came from you, if I remember right. You’re always a primo source for my porn. 🙂

  4. Zelle February 1, 2011 at 3:04 pm #

    Good lord! If I couldn’t squirm and wiggle (and I do that well when tied tighter than a tick too.. – lol).. I don’t know what I’d do! That is my way to communicate to my Top.. without having my mouth write checks that my bottom can’t cash! LOL

    On a side note.. I’d like to raise my Sunday voice here, and offer up an “AMEN SISTER!” to this insightful blog! 🙂


    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:49 pm #

      …when tied tighter than a tick…

      Zelle, even with my lingering flu, you never fail to make me laugh. What a visual.

      🙂 And thanks for the props on the blog!

  5. Erica February 1, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

    My feet and legs cannot keep still. I’ve taken penalty swats to the thighs because I’ve been told to keep them still and then I don’t, but I can’t help it. I also involuntarily rise up on my toes with each stroke when being strapped/caned in a standing position.

    Funny thing, though… I don’t put my hands back. When shooting, I have to REMIND myself to throw my hands back to block, because people enjoy seeing that. But privately? My hands behave themselves. I have no idea why.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:50 pm #

      D? Did you see this? Even ERICA SCOTT can’t hold position. Let’s stop with the thigh whacking now, eh?

  6. dd February 1, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

    Erica, I’m with you, my hands are always very well behaved. Unfortunately the rest of me wriggles and squiggles and gets into all sorts of trouble.

    Then I hear, “stay still” or “get back in place” and everything calms, I obey and the crescendo starts again.

    The only implement to hold me in place is the cane. I may move, my body acknowledging, after a stroke but he waits and I always come back, unasked.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:51 pm #

      Isn’t that funny? It’s almost instinctual, the way we resume position for the cane. Perhaps it’s the ritual of it?

  7. Michael February 1, 2011 at 6:05 pm #

    Excellent post, Pink, and lovely photos. Being spanked which leads to involuntary movements which leads to penalty smacks. Isn’t that the circle of spank? Spank-22?

    • Zelle February 1, 2011 at 6:13 pm #

      “Spank 22???”… LOL .. more like “Farenheit 451!!!”.. LOL

      • Michael February 1, 2011 at 6:52 pm #

        Farenheit 451, not the temperature paper burns but rather when an imp’s tushy is toasted. Her rump is roasted. A temperature you, Zelle, Pink and the other imps are very familiar with.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:52 pm #

      Haha…And I think you’re both right here…it’s the “circle of burn”.

  8. Kaki February 1, 2011 at 6:19 pm #

    I am with dd and Erica, my hands never move, they are too busy gripping tightly whatever is available. My legs are always up, what is that anyway? fight or flight?
    I don’t get in trouble for it but sometimes I try to control it, don’t know how some people can do it.

    Nice post, Pink.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 7:57 pm #

      It’s like a whole body flinch. Under stress, your physiological system will respond, not the complex motor system, which results in a flinch. Not to get technical. 😛

  9. dd February 1, 2011 at 6:24 pm #

    Fight or flight…I like it, Kaki! Suspect the answer is a mixture of both.

    I don’t get in trouble for it either but know the expectation is I will try to remain still.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 8:00 pm #

      Lucky, lucky. Not always, but often, I feel the reprimand on the backs of my thighs. Oof.

  10. Zelle February 1, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

    @Michael.. I knew there was something to the fact that I like to have my marshmallows over an open fire.. “burnt” to a crisp!!.. LOL … I’m sure that was an early sign of my future proclivities.. LOLOLOL .. it’s no wonder I dance over a knee if “burnt” is the direction I go!

    • Michael February 1, 2011 at 7:47 pm #

      lol Excellent, Zelle. And I bet after your Top is finished with you marshmallows can be toasted from the heat rising off your bum. Hey, that might be a business opportunity, Imp roasted marshmallows. It would be at least a three “oven” operation to keep up with demand so I envision Zelle, Pink and Season side by side with rosy rears giving off heat. Lovely.

      • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 8:01 pm #

        Imp roasted marshmallows?! What’s next, fried egg sandwiches?

  11. dd February 1, 2011 at 8:13 pm #

    Michael & Zelle, I love Spank 22 and Farenheit 451! LOL

    Pink, I think obedience to the cane is an instive knowledge that if I relax into it it won’t hurt as much. Plus, when BBH uses one to its full potential it is for punishment and I really don’t want to do anything to incur extra.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 8:23 pm #

      You are so right, dd. I’m still a bit of a novice when it comes to the cane, and fortunately haven’t experienced true punishment with it (only tiny tastes). But relaxing into it is definitely the way to go. No clenching. Just get in your zone and breathe.

  12. Anon E. Mouth February 1, 2011 at 8:29 pm #

    If D runs out of rope, he can always hold your hand. That’s a lovely romantic option too! I really love this post, by the way. You are a chocolatier with words. And I’ve got my face pressed against your glASS.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

      I love it when D holds my hand, as he does often, but there’s something reassuring about the rope and the moments it takes for him to tie me.

      I appreciate your chocolatier comment…thank you!

  13. dd February 1, 2011 at 8:49 pm #

    The cane is the punishment implement of (his) choice in our household, Pink. Starting out young, and in pre-internet days, we went from hand to cane fairly quickly. Now, with all the other options to choose from, BBH still returns to it. Probably because he knows it instills a response in me that nothing else does.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 10:16 pm #

      I can totally understand that, dd. There has been a standing promise of the “mean cane”, as I call it, if I do a specific something. Needless to say, I have not done it. The threat of a punishment session with the cane is enough for me to walk that line carefully!

      It does seem to be a punishment tried and true for many couples. D, in his infinite wisdom (and slight sadism), usually heads right for the thick, wooden paddle, my known adversary. Those Doms.

  14. Zelle February 1, 2011 at 9:04 pm #

    @Michael… I was kind of thinking that “3 oven operation”.. would be great to light up the ocean like some beacon lights! And our little alpha selves can enable “Our ships to finally come in!” (grins) — and we’ll have that fried egg sandwich waiting for them!

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 10:18 pm #

      Bwahaha, beacon lights! Can I get the bat symbol on mine?

      • Michael February 1, 2011 at 10:40 pm #

        You meant the brat symbol, Pink.

        I am with Pink and love your beacon idea, Zelle. Oneth by hand. Twoeth by hairbrush. Threeth by cane.

      • Zelle February 1, 2011 at 11:17 pm #

        BUT OF COURSE you can!

  15. Michael February 1, 2011 at 10:42 pm #

    BTW Love your Spanking Blog Impact Award, Pink. Very well earned via both ends.

    • Barely Pink February 1, 2011 at 10:48 pm #

      Oneth by hand. Twoeth by hairbrush. Threeth by cane.

      Actually, Michael…I quite like your idea. That’s something I can definitely get behind…or get on my behind.

      And, thanks! That was given to me by an ex-blogger who has since gone underground. He charged me with passing it around to other bloggers who make an impact, so you’ll be seeing it around the blogosphere soon. I do want to make some minor modifications to it, being the nitpicky, control-freak advertising person I am. So when I finally get to those changes, look for it!

      • Michael February 2, 2011 at 6:58 am #

        Pink, you a nitpicky control freak? Who’d of thunk it?! 🙂 Seriously, that is a wonderful idea and I know you’ll do the ex-blogger proud with the job you do.

        Glad you like the Oneth by hand idea, but knowing you, Miss Pink, oneth for your behind would be woefully inadequate.

  16. Michael February 2, 2011 at 7:02 am #

    Zelle, wonderful Imp-Power signal you created for Pink. Excellent, excellent job. If it is okay with you and Pink I would like to do a post on it – with full accreditation, of course – to show the imps over on Blossom and Thorn the power of two such wonderful imps as you two.

    • Zelle February 2, 2011 at 10:01 am #

      ahhhhhhhh Michael! How sweet! I’m flattered! Imps do love it when you flatter them by the way .. cause that is like fueling their future precociousness…. 😉

  17. Em February 2, 2011 at 4:32 pm #

    Not that I’m all that talented in the holding-still department (although, like Erica, my hands are terribly well behaved for reasons unknown), but am I the only one who finds it *more* difficult to stay still while bound?

    • Zelle February 2, 2011 at 4:35 pm #

      Hey Em’.. I look at it like this.. I may be wearing a life jacket.. but I’m still gonna “rock about the boat.. when the seas pick up! LOL

      • Em February 2, 2011 at 4:46 pm #


        I usually am pretty good at staying still (although it may take a small reminder), but I do find that when I’m bound, my mind strays from the focus of keeping still because I suddenly feel like I don’t have to anymore – that’s what the bindings are for – and I end up moving around more than I would have without them.

    • Barely Pink February 2, 2011 at 7:19 pm #

      (Hi, Em! 🙂 )

  18. Zelle February 2, 2011 at 5:00 pm #

    Hey Em.. all I can add to what you just said.. is that I’m most FREE… when bound. It’s like it gives my alpha mind a chance to rest.. to not try to figure out how to counter every move – or out strategize -.. it allows my ferrets to jump off the wheels and take a break (!) LOL.. and it is a time for me to just “go with the flow”.. no matter where those sensations take me! What’s funny.. is that the more I’m ‘wound’ up in rope or scarves, or cuff, or a pair of strong hands.. the more I can “unwind” in my mind. (smiles)

    • Barely Pink February 2, 2011 at 7:18 pm #

      That was a perfect description, Zelle. There is no more thinking, nothing required, the fight leaves. The pain stays, but at least you can give yourself over to it faster. I’m on the path to becoming a big bondage queen.

      Do you ever wonder where our kinks will take us? I used to be just spanking, then DD, then D/s, now bondage…what’s next? Latex bunnies?

  19. Michael February 2, 2011 at 5:19 pm #

    Makes perfect sense, Zelle and Em, physically bound but mentally unbound. Wait, that doesn’t sound right. How about unhinged? DOH! That’s worse. How about loose? Damn, forget about it.

    • Zelle February 2, 2011 at 5:31 pm #

      mm mm mm .. we just may need to practice this until you actually come up with the most suitable word!

      ….this could take awhile…


  20. dd February 2, 2011 at 6:33 pm #

    Hmmm, Top logic unbound, unhinged, lost I fear 😉

  21. Poppy February 3, 2011 at 2:11 am #

    I know I am terribly late to this party. I just wanted to say that I love this post (as I love all your posts) and I too am a kicker. Dev says he enjoys seeing that- i have no idea why.

    • Zelle February 3, 2011 at 2:40 am #

      Poppy… Perhaps Dev has secretly always loved “The Rockets”, and your are the next best thing to being at Radio City Music Hall.. (heehee)

      • Barely Pink February 3, 2011 at 11:01 am #

        Hi, Poppy! D likes it when I dance for him, too. We should be rewarded for kicking.

  22. Brett February 3, 2011 at 5:00 am #

    I love all the kicking and squirming, but there’s also something hot about bondage. An acquired taste for me too.

    • Barely Pink February 3, 2011 at 11:01 am #

      “Acquired taste” is right. I find myself craving it — not to the degree that I crave spanking, but it’s growing.

  23. Jon February 3, 2011 at 9:48 am #

    Wow, +50 comments again…Quite the popular blog you have here Pink. Great post!


    • Barely Pink February 3, 2011 at 11:02 am #

      Thanks, Jon! Or I should say thanks to Zelle, Michael, dd, and all of the other lovely commenters. I love my readers.

  24. Hedone February 3, 2011 at 3:06 pm #


    I wired that same way Miss Pink.

  25. dd February 3, 2011 at 6:54 pm #

    I sometimes think I’m wired backwards, I started off with bondage, long before BBH, but the day his handcuffs were put on, I knew he was right.

    • Barely Pink February 4, 2011 at 7:27 am #

      I don’t think you’re wired backward at all. There are a whole cast of characters who are only into bondage, no spanking at all. To me it seems a natural relationship.

  26. Season February 4, 2011 at 6:59 pm #

    Congrats on being Chrossed, Pink! I’m a kicker, too. I can still hear Michael’s stern voice saying, “Get those legs down!” from a session involving a riding crop. Eeeeep!

  27. Michael February 4, 2011 at 10:35 pm #

    Pink, big, huge congrats on this post being Chrossed. So well deserved.

    Season, just like Pink and the rest of the gals, all those kicks did was get you extras with the crop, so do your best Rockettes imitation and kick away.

  28. Barely Pink February 5, 2011 at 10:22 am #

    Thanks, Michael & Season!

    You know…the riding crop is designed to make horses RUN FASTER, i.e. MOVE THEIR LEGS. How is it then, that when it is applied to us, we are not allowed to kick? Top logic fail.
