I was going to leave this post till after our move, but I thought I would go ahead with it regardless. If I don't answer your comment until next week, don't worry, it will only be due to us switching telephone/internet providers and not having any broadband.
I suppose in a way this links in to my last post about Dan suddenly discovering that he enjoys to swat me on the bottom with increasingly regularity, despite the fact that most of you are used to this sort of spanky demonstration of HOHiness. I hesitate to call it a spank, as it is only one, but it can happen at any time, and usually when I am not expecting it.
It can have all sorts of connotations, such as a quick warning swipe, an "I just can't resist swatting you when you bend over like that" spank, a swift volley during love-making, and even a quick love pat when he comes to bed (I am nearly always asleep and it wakes me up) as if he is just reminding me of possession.
The reason I am noticing this is due to the fact that Dan never ever spanked me in any way at all, during our entire marriage, until I asked him to just over a year ago. I have never suggested any of these quick swats - they are entirely his own idea, and long may they continue.
But there are some other differences in Dan that I am noticing too. Just very small differences, but they seem to be on the increase.
He now regularly lifts one eyebrow.
For example, we have a TV in our bedroom. It is seldom watched except in the mornings, for the news and weather. Dan will sit up in bed sipping his morning tea (we often take it in turns these days to make the tea) and he will be commenting on the news/weather or going through what is on the agenda for the day. With me, the news goes in one ear and out the other unless it is extra interesting.
So the other morning I decided to read my Kindle whilst he watched the TV. This worked okay for about ten minutes, then I was aware of the silence. Dan had switched it off and was watching me instead.
"Put your Kindle down and give me a kiss" he said.
Immediately I was on high alert. What had I done?
"I was only reading while you were watching the news" I told him, putting it away. Whereupon he put a hand behind my neck, pulling me towards him, and repeated his request.
When he was satisfied I was spanked and then given another instruction, before we both looked at the clock in horror, and nearly collided as we raced each other into the shower. It was an unexpected start to my morning which made it all the more enjoyable.
The other thing I have noticed about Dan is his sudden concern for my safety and welfare.
I'm bewildered by it. I've always had to carry my mobile phone with me when driving, ever since I had a puncture on a very busy dual carriageway and decided to walk for help. He's also not keen on me climbing ladders of any height above two feet, as I wobble. But now he has several times ordered me to go to bed as he has observed me to be "dead on my feet", forbidden me to lift anything he discerns is even remotely heavy, and even insisted I go for a longish walk as he felt I should get some fresh air and exercise. What on earth is all this?! Is there something I should know?
Finally, (and I have saved the best till last), something very strange seems to have happened to my body.
Lillie (of Lillie and Ian - she used to have the most wonderful blog) described it as the clitoral tug. With me, it seems to have become a full body jerk!
I can't stop it and it's getting worse - or more prolific!
It started when Dan caressed my bosoms (he always used to be a boob man), but it now happens when he strokes my bottom, or in fact, any other part of me. It has been known to happen even if he just runs his finger down my thigh, or my arm.
It's a bit like a mini electric shock. My whole body - not just my pelvis - gives a reactive jerk.
At first we thought it was funny, but now my body has developed a mind of its own. The slightest intimate contact and it responds. I go so far as to say that even after making love, my body has what can only be described as aftershocks.
Whilst I am secretly smug and exhilarated, Dan is perplexed, and worried that I will react to someone else just brushing past me.
If you do have anything to say to allay my fears that my kinkiness has reached even greater heights, please tell me. I don't want this to stop, but oh it is rather weird.
Weird but wonderful. I keep thinking that I've been missing out all these years, and that you all know about this effect, but have kept it from me. Hmmmm...
