I discovered this picture on Real Spankings and it brought up some thoughts.
Given that this delightful young ladies jeans are around her knees and her bottom is bare I can only assume that the paddle she is holding will soon be used on her delightful derriere. What interests me is the smile on her face. I sometimes had to fetch and hold the instrument of my own destruction as a young girl growing up and I can assure you that I was not smiling, crying yes, smiling no. I don't often make my clients bring me the implement or hold it while waiting, but maybe I should, it's quite an effective technique and can really make those pre spanking butterflies flap their wings very hard.
As for why she has a smile on her face that will have to remain a mystery known only to Miss About To Be Paddled.
