Just something I was musing over. So many photos of Dommes on the internet show them holding a cane or crop up in front of their chests and bending it, when they are not using it. My muse was that this pose is rarely adopted by Dommes in my experience in real life. I guess such a pose can demonstrate to a sub that the implement is very bendy and therefore likely to deliver a considerable sting, but I have quite a bit of experience of two or more Dommes taking turns using canes or crops. The Domme at rest and watching invariably adopts one of three poses. (A) Lightly tapping the implement against her hip and the side of her thigh. (B) Holding the implement in both hands, one hand at either end with the implement horizontal behind her, just below the buttocks, (C) Holding the implement in both hands, one hand at either end, with the implement horizontal in front of her, at the top of the thighs. These three postures look very relaxed and comfortable. (It is not relaxing or comfortable to stand holding a cane in a bent shape in front of your chest.)
I therefore find images where the Domme is holding a cane or crop up in front of her chest and bending it, much less engaging than when the Domme is adopting one of the three poses I have described above. There is little point in showing how bendy a cane might be, if the caning is imminent because the sub will almost immediately be finding out just how much it stings! I guess if the caning is postponed and the sub has never experienced that particular cane, then the demonstration of bendiness might fill the sub with dread while awaiting the caning – which is always delightful, I admit. However, for me, observing that the Domme is utterly relaxed, calm and physically comfortable while she awaits delivering a spiteful caning, properly demonstrates her status, dominance and cruelty. Especially if the sub is being punished by another Domme and crying out and wriggling in his bonds all the while she patiently waits. (A scenario I am very experienced in!)
So, just a muse. I hope my blog followers do not find this post too boring.
PS. An extra comment. Holing the cane or crop between the lips! Why????????????????? I have never seen a Domme do that in real life.
