Goldfish and Spanking
My opinion about goldfish is that they are supposed be the following things: orange, tiny, only available to win from the Ping Pong game at the carnival and they're swimming upside down in clear plastic baggies of tepid water, (Windy, what is it with you and the PPP? In my defense, I am talking about the ball here and I am not obsessed with balls. Except for Storm's. And I was only afraid the first time I ever saw them. Good Lord, I had no idea. But, now he manscapes, so we're good.)....... back to the goldfish: orange, tiny, live for about 7 days, reside in a small bowl on the kitchen counter where the young kids can throw Fruit Loops in it when Mom's not looking, live alone in a one-man fish castle on a small bed of rocks, have a 3 second attention span, and stare at me like they know me and make me feel an overwhelming urge to take a second puff from my asthma inhaler.
After doing a little research, I discover that I am right about a few of those things. 1)Yes, goldfish do begin to recognize their owners, so Gill is indeed staring back at me. 2) They are often, but not always orange. 3)They shouldn't but will eat Fruit Loops or any other food they can fit in their mouths.
I am also wrong about several of my assumptions. 1) They live an average from 5 to 10 years. 2) They and their relatives can grow to be very large -- The Giant Carp is the domestic relative crossbreeding of goldfish. (Sounds like a ttwd experiment gone terribly wrong.) 3) They should not live in little glass fish bowls because there is not enough oxygen. 4) The average human attention span is 8 seconds while the goldfish's is slightly longer at 9 seconds. Really? Yes.
Goldfish do better when you give them regularly scheduled meals -- just like we gals do better with regularly scheduled spankings. If your goldfish is kind of floating at the top on his side, he has bloat from you feeding him too much, so it is recommended to not feed him for two days. Although if you eat too much cake, FFF gals, and feel a bit bloated, I wouldn't recommended starving yourself for the next two days because, well, you're not a goldfish. They can actually go 3 weeks without eating because they really good at storing fat. So we need to stop hiring the neighbor's bratty kid to come overfeed the goldfish while we're on vacation.
Like my assumptions about goldfish, I have some preconceived notions about a particular kind of spanking that I have heard a little about. It is called the good girl spanking. I have seen the term on some of your blogs, but I don't recall an actual definition.
Storm and I were going to have some alone time that we knew about later one evening, but I was pretty sure I was only up to 5 swats. "So you're going to give me a five swat spanking?" Seems like a waste of time to me unless he plans to knock me into next Friday with each swing. (He's not, nor do I want him to. Okay, maybe......into next Wednesday) And then he said something to the effect of he could add to it a good girl spanking. I freaked out. "GAH! What?!" We have NEVER talked about this.... he just invoked the 5 swat thing out of thin air last week and the fact that he even knows what a good girl spanking is when I actually do not know shocks the heck out of me. So, because I do not know what it is, I tell him. "I do NOT want a good girl spanking," and then I grin at him, "But I am up for a bad girl spanking." We don't have a definition for one of those either, but if I had to choose on the fly, I'm definitely going with the bad girl spanking just to error of the side of intensity. The terms "good" and "bad" -- neither of those are sexy buzz words for me because he doesn't call my behavior good or bad. He also doesn't call me "girl", although he does sometimes do this cute thing where he asks if I still want to be his girlfriend. (The answer is YES!)
For me, a good girl spanking would be something that has to be hard enough to turn me on, but not so hard that it feels like true discipline so I guess I could deal with that. And if Storm started calling me a good girl in certain situations, not that I want him to, but if it was something that he wanted, in the right context, I could get into that, and end up enjoying it and the sex afterwards, too.
But, like the behavior of goldfish, the term "good girl spanking" is still kind of a mystery to me and perhaps I am wrong about what it means. I imagine that it is subjective and we all have our own interpretation, right? But, because I can better wrap my head around the idea of a bad girl spanking, I would identify more with a betta fish rather than a goldfish. Betta fish fight with each other. Oh, yes, make up sex. He/she prefers to swim alone and need a comfortable place to hide in order to feel safe. I need time alone, especially to write and I do want to feel safe and that place for me is in Storm's arms.
I like the sound of all that. I'd rather have a betta fish spanking than a goldfish spanking. How about you, which would you prefer?

Interesting question. Most bettas live solitary lives, in teeny tiny bowls, because they fight with each other. That would work for me, because I prefer solitude and hate fighting. Our goldfish live in a pack and yes, they do know when feeding time is and come running--er, swimming--when I tap the food can against the rocks that surround our pond.
Back to the question. I think that all my spankings are GG ones, hard enough to make me really sore but not so hard that I am wishing it were over and hating the pain. They have to be GG, because I am never, ever bad!
Hello, Hermione! I am relieved I did some research and that most of it seems to align with your real life experience with fish. Whew! And in a pond? That is wonderful! I like hearing about your goldfish and bettas. I learned some more from you. A GG in your house sounds like I could get into that here with Storm. Thanks for sharing what your experience is with a GG is..... I am not surprised to hear that you are never bad, Hermione. haha Thanks for clearing this GG stuff up for me, it actually does help me! Hugs!Delete
In our house...positively a good girl spanking...they are the most common...unlike when we first met....and they can be anything we want them to be. A true bad girl spanking, is in the basement...with the basement paddle....spanking then done....no play time...just some hugging to re-assure that all is right. Thankfully it has been a while since one of those...hugs abbyReplyDelete
Hi, Abby! Another vote for GG, got it! Oh, a true bad girl spanking sounds like YIKES and OUCH and THUD. So be good, Abby, please. LOL! Glad it has been a while since that .... keep up the good work... and getting those great GG's ! Thanks for sharing what goes on at your place to help me learn! HUGS!Delete
Goldfish and spankings! What an interesting combo! We had goldfish once when my sister and I were small. They would not die. They lived and finally went to goldfish heaven.
Now about those spankings......... after last week's big one, I would take Jack's definition of a good girl spanking every time. Lots of spanks, lots of loving and lots more spanks. When you look in the mirror after a really good gg, you look beautiful, sexy and your eyes sparkle. You just seem to glow! No kidding! Yesterday we had a gg spanking and I put on one of Jack's shirts afterwards, no panties and there were plenty more spanks to get us by. Things stay smooth. Jack is happy and so is his wife.
Great post, Windy.
I admit this combo was a "tough sell." I finally made some kind of a connection with brute force. And, then last night, I was just too tired to worry about it any further. Hit *Publish*. I had other fish to fry. LOL!
Regarding your goldfish when you were little, "They would not die.' OH MY GOSH! Laughing! Were you trying to get them to die? Cracking up. Glad they to hear they are in heaven along with my Mrs. Methuselah.
Okay, your type of gg spankings. Good grief, I could have just emailed you and asked you and I could have saved myself all this trouble?! LOL! Who knew?! Seriously, your description.... holy cow.... actually made me pause and take notice. Wow. That is no silly flirty thing you're talking about... and I LOVE IT..... I have never looked at myself in the mirror (except for my rear) after a spanking..... and loving..... It sounds like a sexy and beautiful experience.... gulp...... So very glad to hear Jack is keeping things smooth and that he and his precious wife are happy! Thanks for your lovely and informative way of sharing here. Thank you! Windy
Laughed at your goldfish musings, Windy. I remember having one disappear out of the bowl with no body found at all. We all assumed it was the cat until we cleaned in back of the dresser. There was "Joe Fish" stuck to the back of the dresser. He was properly buried in the back yard.ReplyDelete
Sam and I do not have GG spankings because that is what we say to our dog. Sam named them "Just Because" spankings. Usually just because he loves me. Sometimes just because he feels like it.
Hugs From Ella
Hi, Ella! Glad you got a kick out of my silly musings. Oh gosh, with your missing-let's-blame-the-cat fish. Haha Poor Joe, but glad you gave him a nice sending off in the backyard.Delete
Okay then, good girl refers to your dog's behavior in your home. Got it! What would you do if he did suddenly call you that? Love the "just because" he loves you and just feels like it. Thanks, Ella, for letting me have a glimpse into this previously cloudy area of spanking and how it works at your house. Hugs!
Since I've never really get a bad girl I guess all mine are good girl. I've always thought of a good girl as one where you guy isn't upset about anything, he just spanks because he knows both of you enjoy it.ReplyDelete
I like your personal definition of a good girl, PK. I am thinking Storm and I need to have a sit down discussion about all of this. Thanks for your helpful advice and input!Delete
Hi Windy ... Goldfish allowed to grow in a larger environment can become huge! We've had a couple of koi ponds in our past. When we threw in a few goldfish, some grew to 6 inches or more!ReplyDelete
We don't have GG ... we have JFF ... just for fun ... which almost all spankings are except for the occasional 'disciplinary' spanking ...
And ... what you are experiencing is one of the hazards of your man reading 'the blogs' ... they pick things up ... sometimes they are things you'd rather they didn't pick up but I think you'll find implementing GG spankings is a good catch on Storms part.
Hugs ... nj
Hi, NJ! Well, 6 inches is nothing to sneeze at whether we're talking about big goldfish or something else... and if it is a discussion between you and me, it's more likely the "something else."!! HA!Delete
Giant goldfish huh... Koi .... oh gosh..... being the fisherperson that I am, you'd think I was not creeped out by any fish, but the giant carp .... and those koi...... are really gross to me. Something about their scales, I think. LOL!
JFF sounds good at your house! Yes, surprisingly I keep forgetting that Storm is reading right along with me here.... I still go to tel him something about blog land and most of the time, he already knows. LOL! I think it is good though and I don't really see drawbacks of that so far. So, yeah, he and I will need to discuss this whole gg thing. Thanks for support and encouragement, NJ!! Hugs!
Its mostly GG spankings here. Once in a while if i feel the need to atone for something i’ll let BIKSS know and he’ll spank a little differently. I think its also me- i’ll react differently if im in a penitent frame of mind. So probably quieter, less squirmy, more catharsis and less sexy feelings. Usually leads to cuddles talking and reconnecting emotionally. GG spankings for us can be fun and playful or take the shape of a more intense submission exercise where there may be more pain or longer duration but that in itself turns me the heck on. So both of these will inevitably lead to sex. Not so for the “penitential” ones. I hope that helps. :)ReplyDelete
Goldfish was cute. I was wondering where you were going with it.
I was wondering where I was going with it as well. LOL! But, I just went with my assumptions and misconceptions about the goldfish .... and the gg spanking. Glad you thought it was cute.Delete
Oh, look your spanking descriptions... and how they differ..... very interesting... shedding some light here for me, thank you, so much. Now you've got me really thinking over here. Catharsis and penitent frame of mind and then sexy feelings with the GG spankings. Yes, you've been very helpful. I am taking notes and definitely request a sit down with Storm. Thanks, Fondles!!
Great post, Windy! I'm not sure Hoss even calls GG's that because in his mind they are simply sexy spankings. We love them when they happen, but they do not happen here often enough. Just no time for the longer drawn out play sessions in this season of life for us.ReplyDelete
On the other hand, your post and all the comments should have been read about three hours ago. I seriously spent an hour with several children to pick out one goldfish for one child to have in her cute little tank she bought for herself. Thankfully the pet shop guy knew heaps about goldfish...who knew how aggressive they can be or which ones were so tame...I learned a ton and wanted to take like one of each home. Lol! Your analogy worked well!
It seems gg's are subjective like I thought. Enjoy this season with your kiddos while you can. Thanks for your comments!Delete
Hey Windy, I say forget the goldfish and the betta fish. I'm more of the Kissing Gouramis variety. They can live up to 25 years and the males can get aggressive when protecting their own. More importantly, they kiss each other all the time. I love kissing Eric!!! AmyReplyDelete
Hi, Amy! Well, I thought I was done Googling fish, but apparently not. LOL! Your KG fish looks interesting. Do you have them? Did you know it has sex on a floating piece of lettuce? Did you and Eric teach them this? Ohhh, regarding the kissing.... have you written a post on how much you like to smooch your husband? If so, I wanna read it! I bet you could make even a kissing scene somehow turn into something .... delicious....Delete
I loved reading this and love your goldfish comparison lol. I confess, I have never had fish and know nothing about them.
As for spanking, I would take a GG spanking :) To me the main difference between the different types of spanking is the emotions behind them. A GG spanking is fun and the mood light. As for intensity, I guess it is normally less intense, but doesn't necessarily have to be?
Hey, Roz! Great to see you here! No worries, I wrote this silly article and I still know next to nothing about pet fish. Ah, so you are a GG gal....very interesting. Love your interpretation of it .... Yeah, I think you're right that is does't have to be intense or it can be..... it's up to the individual (or her hubby), right? Thanks for your input. I am finding these definitions interesting and helpful. Thanks, Roz! Hugs!Delete
Hi Windy, goldfish huh?;)ReplyDelete
I guess my spankings often are attention getters that most always lead to some lovely afters, I’d say GG!
Hi, Minelle! Welcome to my little blog! Yeah, the goldfish was a stretch, I know. Your "lovely afters" made me laugh. Another vote for GG! Great to see you here!!Delete
