Learning Curve

Frances seems to feel the need to confess some things to Ed. I'll bet she just hates doing that.

hi everyone,

being in a relationship can be a really tough task requiring a lot of work and learning...............learning about each others wants and needs, learning how to discuss your feelings with your partner, learning to compromise, learning to solve problems etc. then when you add spanking to the mix the "Learning Curve" gets really steep :o ! it seems to me that all this is even more difficult when you're young. you have less experience, you're a lot more tentative and uncertain as to how to proceed and of course, you have to fight your way through that hormone induced haze that your brain is in :lol: .

with this in mind, i have started a new toon featuring some young people. Ed is 19. he graduated from high school a year ago, took a job driving a fork lift at a factory in a nearby town, moved out of his folks home and got an apartment closer to work. Frances just turned 18 and graduated only 3 weeks ago. Ed's been working lots of over time so it's been difficult for them to have much time together and most of their communication has been by phone. now that Frances has graduated they are hoping that will change. as luck would have it, Ed finally got a weekend off and Frances is going to spend it with him :D .

ok, hopefully that will set the stage for you. the new toon is called "Learning curve" and i have posted the first 4 pics to get us started. i hope you enjoy them. phil

Frances seems to have ended this awkward silence by blurting out something she may regret.

Ed is confident but Frances seems to think things are moving just a bit too quickly

Well! It looks like you're off to a good start with your newest story. A young couple exploring the parameters of their new relationship... wondering whether spanking is going to be a part of that relationship. Wondering whether Ed should be a traditional "man of the house" , or if they'll follow the more recent, politically correct standards with Ed as a doormat to the jackboots of feminism. So far, it looks as if Ed is going to make the right choice, (according to those of us in this group) and take the dominant position. Of course, it helps that Frances herself acknowledges that she deserves to be spanked!

Great job so far!

This is a new kind of spanking story from you, Phil. The young lady here, Frances, is less bratty and more guilty than your previous spankees, which alters the psychology somewhat. Also, as you say, with a young couple there is a "learning curve" because they aren't sure how to proceed. "In the Family" featured a young couple also, but the dynamic was different there because Al is very determined to spank the bratty Barbara. In this case, Ed hesitates to spank Frances because he's not sure how she'll react. It's very fortunate she brought up the subject of spanking, because that's what convinces him to go ahead. Of course, it also shows us that she understands she deserves a spanking, something that Barbara, for instance, wasn't about to admit - at least, not until her attitude had been firmly adjusted :D

It makes you wonder how many young couples who should be into spanking hesitate at a critical time - the girl too afraid to admit she wants and/or needs a spanking, the boy hesitant to take an action that might turn the girl off or make him feel like a bully. This is a little different, but in my own youth, I knew a very strong-willed girl who really needed to be taken in hand - she was running wild and used to getting her own way in everything, and I even called her an Amazon to her face! - and for reasons I won't go into here I was pretty sure that deep down she wanted to be turned over a man's knee. I actually started to spank her once, and she resisted with such force I backed off, not wanting to hurt her. What I didn't know then is that among spanko women, there are a very small number who feel the need to offer physical resistance even though they really want to be spanked, one of the more difficult situations the young Top can find himself in.

In the years since, I've often thought I should have been more direct with her - confronted her openly about what I felt were her spanking desires and admitted my own longing to tan her fanny, which of course she might have surmised - but that's difficult when you're young.

However, it looks like Al and Frances are going to get their relationship on a sound footing from the beginning. I eagerly await chapter 2. :)

hi Boom,

i'm glad you think the story is off to a good start :D . it does indeed look like Ed is making the right choices so far................all he needed was a little encouragement to get him started. you're right that it helps that Frances understands that she deserves a spanking although i think she may be regretting that she blurted that out instead of thinking it over more...................at least at this point. thanks, phil

hi web-ed,

good analysis of the current situation and a good comparison of to "In the Family" :D . i vaguely remember that uncertainty that goes with youth and at least one young lady that asked me if i was going to spank her which is what prompted me to do this toon. it's interesting too that both you and Boom commented about Frances being the one to first speak of spanking :D .

it does indeed make you wonder. even back in my day when spanking was more acceptable i wondered about it but so much has changed since then i really wouldn't have a clue now. that was an interesting story you told...............especially since i also remember starting to spank a young lady and having to back off once upon a time :D .

Sorry to hear about your aunt's injury. I hope she'll be alright.

Meanwhile, I like the one picture that you were able to post. It's such a loving depiction of a special moment in the development of a new relationship! You're really good at that kind of storytelling!
