Being back and dealing with the bottoms that come in and out of the shop prompted me to think about the practice of corner time.
I use it a lot here, before, during and after the spankings. In some cases I use it because the client has requested it and other times it's at my discretion. My version of cornertime is the time honoured, bare bottom, hands on head picture, and it's much the same for those that do public cornertime in reception watched over carefully by Kimmy.
Cornertime can also be used in lieu of punishment, as famously extolled by the Supernanny and her 'naughty corner' for misbehaving tots.
I find it an almost essential part of a proper spanking, and it's a lovely extension of the entire ritual. It does not just benefit the spankee, but also the spanker.
Cornertime after a sound spanking allows the freshly spanked bottom time to cool down and give it's owner some reflection and thought about what happened and why. For me spanking is an intensely emotional experience, so I use that post spanking time to have a cup of tea, admire my handiwork and bask in the afterglow.
Here's some pictures that may explain it all.
