December 17th - a rescue plan

    Some good news, I’ve been talking to two developers now and got them working together, we just had a meeting with the guys behind an existing large (millions of users) site similar to Tumblr, with a vibrant and open-minded community, and more importantly, it has open-minded owners who believe in free speech. They think we can get something done here to rescue the whole community.

    I’m not allowed to reveal the site name yet. I can tell you it’s mainstream, open to everyone, open-minded and welcoming. (It’s not WordPress or any site owned by Facebook or Twitter. It’s not Pillowfort, that’s in closed beta. It’s not Ello, that’s mainly for artists. It’s not kinkspace or fetlife, those are too specialist. It’s not jux, that seems to be closed. It’s not Soup, that seems still in development and too small.)

    One of the reasons for delaying the announcement for next few days is they don’t want a “land grab” where people take the names of current popular Tumblr users over there (cyber squatting). So they are looking at ways for existing Tumblr users to keep the same names on the new site.

    More info over the days to come.

    The plan is, broadly:

    1. By December 9th, announcement of the new site and how to secure your username there

    2. By December 10th, an online tool for bloggers to copy their existing content to the new site automatically, with the same tags and captions.

    3. Bloggers will need to copy their content across between December 10th and December 17th if they want to use the automatic tool.

    4. My understanding is that after December 17th there will be no public access to any “flagged” posts on Tumblr, but the original poster will still be able to see the flagged post (for a short time at least). Therefore, the original poster may still be able to manually download a post to their own PC or phone, after December 17th, and manually upload it to the other site. But if you have lots of posts that will take a long time, it will be better to use the automatic tool before December 17th.

    Please understand that these dates are approximate and may change for technical or other reasons.

    There may be a few rough edges or not so perfect looking site design on the transfer tool. Everyone is doing their best. The main goal here is to help as many people as possible preserve access to their content, in the short space of time Tumblr has allowed us, and preserve as much as possible of the Tumblr community spirit somewhere new.

    The new site will cater for photo, GIF, text and html posts. It will not offer video and audio posts, due to cost reasons - maybe in future, but for now you will need to preserve video and audio content yourself in some other place.

    If your Tumblr blog has a mixture of original content and reblogs, or all reblogs, all of that can be copied over to the new site. Reblogs will become “your” original content if nobody else posted them yet, otherwise they will be shown as reblogs. The devs are looking at ways to preserve attribution of reblogs back to the original Tumblr poster, if that person also moves to the new site.

    Important: your Likes cannot be copied from Tumblr to the new site. You will have to go find the same posts again on the new site, and like them afresh.

    (Similarly, existing reblog comments, asks, messages and other user interaction on Tumblr cannot be copied to the new site - that’s just too much to do, in the short time available.)

    If you want to preserve any of your existing Liked posts on Tumblr, you will need to either: (1) download the post to your own PC, or: (2A) reblog it now to your own Tumblr blog, and then (2B) use the automatic tool, before December 17th, to move your whole Tumblr blog across to the new site.

    If you have Liked a lot of posts here on Tumblr, the gridllr.com webapp should be able to help you do steps 1 and 2A quickly, I mean download or reblog.

    (Someone complained to me today about the appearance of Gridllr on a phone. It’s best to use Gridllr on a PC, Mac or Tablet with a large screen.)

    If you have liked a post here on Tumblr and the original poster decides to delete it, or even to delete their entire blog, some time before December 17th, then that post will be permanently lost. So if you want to be sure to preserve any of your Liked posts, you should best download or reblog as soon as possible. If it’s reblogged to your own blog it is safe from deletion, at least for next few days.

    Obviously, you will lose access, after December 17th, to all past posts you have liked, if Tumblr has flagged them as NSFW. Again, the steps (1), or (2A) and (2B) covered above will be the only way to hold on to these posts.

    The amazing artist @ismarte17 drew this a year ago, 18 November 2017, for my 50th birthday.
    Turning 51 tomorrow.  I’m hoping to get some guys here to give great spankings in celebration.
    Hope you guys might like to travel to visit Daddy/Uncle PBT for a spanking.
    Or to come to the brand new Spanking Camp planned for July 2019.  Details to follow, but it will be a wonderful Spanking Camp on a very private property in the midst of beautiful central Ontario Canada, with many camp sites, buildings, and a private lake.  Details will be coming very soon!

    I wonder if he’s very, very late with his rent payment.  What do you think?

    At first glance, it looks like he’s getting the belt, but I think now that it’s a doubled-over extension cord.  Those suckers hurt like hell, especially the older ones with real rubbed around the wires. Even a very thin ear bud wire will sting terribly, but these older ones will leave welts to last for a few days, no kidding.

    Have you ever been spanked with an extension cord?  Have you ever spanked someone with one?  They are so useful, especially when used like hot peppers, not the whole meal, but used to provide spark and sparkle to the experience. PBT

    I am up north at the camp where TOMKAT happens for the weekend!! Papa and I arrived a night early with Barkley! I love cuddles from him!! Who was the last person you got cuddles from? Hugs!!!

    @blondlittleboy and me up north where the @tomkat-campout takes place.  This is the first photo I’ve posted showing my face.  (I’m on the right, in case you aren’t sure.)

    Finally decided to share my face.  It’s about time, really. PBT

    KRYPTONITE!

    Although I do keep spanking even when my lads have begun to cry, a crying lad goes right to my heart.  Actually, it took ages for me to learn to keep spanking.  In fact, I found that the lessons aren’t always learned when the crying, sobbing, or tears had just started; you need to keep the emotions flowing for a while to make sure you’ve done a really good job.

    Sometimes the crying doesn’t change, sometimes it gets louder and the lad jumps about trying to avoid the spanking, and still others just lay there and take it, crying their eyes out.  This is where the lessons are learned, and it’s important and beautiful, but when they are spanking before I start, it’s harder to put them over my lap.  I just want to grab him and hug him to me.  Take my shirt off, maybe more, and hold him tight, ending up with cuddling and perhaps spooning, holding this sweet lad.  Sadly, of course, they don’t learn their lessons this way!  So, I have to power through the tears, the sweet tears, bare his bottom, and give him one hell of a spanking! PBT

    Some remarkable Martinet action.  This art is done superbly showing the kind of work you might like to do with a martinet on your adult partners, friends, and deserving guys. I know the cartoon looks like school but I prefer to think it as some College work. Those thighs have to on fire and stinging like hell.  My plan is to show this to a couple of the guys I’ve spanked with a martinet and see how it makes them feel.  I’m pretty sure we’ll get one hell of a reaction. If you want to get a martinet, a real French house martinet, drop me a line.  I have a contact in France who sends them to me when needed. PBT

    Do you think it’s erotic as a spanker to be teased into spanking, eg a hot assed waiter bending over in front of you in tight pants and being surly that kinda thing.... I love these candid vids of bubble butt guys being followed by pervs , would love to see one of em upended and spanked shouting “Dude ... wtf are you doing .... ouch ouch ....”

    Oh yes. Yes I do.  Some of those guys in those super-snug pants that cup the butt cheeks and show them off beautifully are so good at teasing and flirting.  One of my regular lads is a server and I make his bottom sizzle for the things he does while at work.  Two weeks ago a customer approached him, away from the table, ostensibly to compliment him on his work.  The fellow, though, actually asked the young man if he’d like a blow job.  So, the Dad went to the bathroom and a minute or two later the server followed.  He said that this man who appeared outwardly to be straight gave an incredibly blow job, fellating this hot young man until the 40-something year old had a mouth and throat just full of semen, even dripping down his chin.I told him that if I was his boss and caught him getting blown by a customer, he would have to pay a severe fine, possibly beginning with the lad demonstrating the technique that had been used on him, then a spanking.  So, I pulled down his very tight sweat pants, or maybe they were pj pants, it can be hard to tell, yanked his incredible little Snoopy jockey shorts, and spanked him beginning with my hand, then a ruler, a short strap, a wooden spoon, and a bath brush.  After some corner time, he bent over the bed for a serious strapping with a big razor strap and a long vintage Scots tawse (Glasgow-style tawse here).  He was crying and apologizing for being a very naughty boy.  Did he learn anything?  Only time will tell.PBT

    purplebowtie’s fun friday photo set

    Another wonderful Sting Pictures photo set involving a lad with a sweet, hot, little ass getting his bottom spanked OTK.  I love the “Spank You & Goodnight” meme. That is so very cool.

    Hoping you are having many spankings either as top or bottom this weekend. PBTx

    Thank you Mr! Last time we did a nerd vs jock play where the jock bully gets his comeuppance which involved my bulge getting grabbed and my hard nipples tweaked before being wedgied by my tight little shorts over his knee for an epic spanking 😍 Do you have any suggestions on what we should try? Or your readers :) love trying new scenarios... Dylan

    There are so many kinds, like Dr/Patient (where patient hasn’t been taking pills or doing as he’s told)Coach/Jock you’ve already doneIRS agent/youJudge/Lawyer who is causing troubleJudge/plaintiff who is causing trouble  (and I have the robe, you see)

    Teacher/StudentStep-Dad/boy (establishing a new order after the wedding)Neighbour/Kid (throwing balls, breaking windows)Client-Person/Paperboy who forgets the Client’s house alwaysPriest/PenitantAnd lots more, too, Dylan.So glad you and your BF are having fun together.  Don’t forget how much fun it can be to take photos and videos.  They can add a lot of fun, even as foreplay other times, going over your memories, ideas.You can get a cheap pair of pants and as part of the punishment (like used at a Thrift store, I mean) have to cut holes for your bottom to stick out,a nd maybe holes in the shirt so your nipples stick out, then you get punished like that.Lots of ideas.  Have a great weekend, my friends.Purplebowtie.

    Some more wonderful costume ideas from Purplebowtie

    You likely think I’m going to say that you should dress up like these handsome young athletes, right?

    WRONG.

    I have a much, much easier costume idea for you, my sweet friends.  Wear whatever you’re planning to wear, going to wear, wanting to wear.  All you need to do is one simple thing - - - add a bulge.  A BULGE.  A nice, big ol’ mouthwatering bulge.  The kinds of bulges that cause cars to drive into trees because the driver’s mind is wiped clean by the sheer wonder of the bulge.

    Why not try it?  Womenfolk can get implants and things but we don’t even need surgery.  You have the ultimate bulge-enhancer in your chest of drawers. Socks!  Socks, my dear friends.  Stuff a sock down.  It’s as old as the rocks and the trees, and the reason it’s old is that it has worked for ages and ages.  Try it!  The bulge and the socks.  Sounds like a Happy Hallowe’en to me.

    And if you don’t need a sock to create a phenomenal bulge?  Lucky you, my friends, and get yourself over here to see ol’ Uncle PBT so I can check your situation out in person, and then, you can confess your mistakes and misdeeds, and I’ll whip your newly-bared bottom for you.  When your spanking is done, a quick but loving cuddle, a handful of Hallowe’en candy, and you can be off, and the next bulged lad can have his turn.

    Now that sounds like a Happy Hallowe’en to me!

    I might be the best pumpkin carver of all time.

    I mean.

    Look.

    purplebowtiespanking

    Um, @alexanderzeegreat, dear boy . . . did you ask permission to use the big knives and things you needed to carve the pumpkin?  You certainly did a fine job, but you know you must ask permission, and you need an adult here for knife use, especially on a hard, hard vegetable like a pumpkin.

    And if you scrape by without earning a spanking for the knives, you certainly didnt clean up very well, did you?  Look at the mess in here, my boy!  Seeds and pumpkin guck everywhere.  You have some cleaning to do.  When that is over, clean yourself up and the get to your room and strip naked.  After you’re there and have some time to think, I’ll come up and spank your bare little bottom.  Sorry, sweetheart, but you need to learn, my dear boy.  But that doesn’t take away from this being a great job, you just need to learn.  C’mon, I’ll even help you clean up in here so we can get your punishment over with and get on with the Hallowe’en fun!  Yay!

    Happy Halloween from Andrew & Scott

    purplebowtiespanking

    Some more fun costume ideas.

    And, like the others, these provide incredibly easy access for spanking, paddling, and strapping.  Just flip them over our laps and the costumes will ride up and their great bums will magically appear and be ready for the bath brush to paddle their bottom with some holiday Hallowe’en energy. (fueled by some Hallowe’en treats, of course).

    You know that Fred & Barney got up to all kinds of naughty and rotten, underhanded things.  Even if the lads in the costumes are total angels, the characters need some spankings, so lots of reasons to warm up those backsides. PBT

    For Halloween, here is the best idea for a guy’s costume. If you are going to a private party, don’t waste money on a huge costume, all you need some paint and a good imagination and you will be the hit of the party. You can just let it all hang loose or better yet, walk into that party proud and erect.

    Let’s see one of this boys backside. Before and after its painted red with the strap.

    purplebowtiespanking

    I agree totally, @otkspank! But I bet it’ll need a lot of good painting.  Funnily enough, the painting won’t cost anything, just a layer or two or his skin removed with the paddle and belt.  This is where you think of a Happy Hallowe’en.

    Thank you for replying 🙏 actually I don’t really have a bad attitude but I love to roleplay a bad attitude with my bf/dom. I’m very laidback and chilled out irl. I love role play and that’s why I enjoy your blog/stories - my bf loves me playing an arrogant cocky but dumb jock type in very skimpy/tight clothing ;)

    Your bf has excellent taste!Would love hearing from you any time at all.  There are so many fun things you can do, like a young auto mechanic (not wearing much due to the heat) who accidentally puts gas in your diesel truck, or mucks up something in the engine that should and easily have been done right.  Or a young butcher’s apprentice who messes up the most expensive cut of beef costing the boss hundreds of dollars . . . the possibilities are endless.

    This is a great time of year, as some couples I know look out for Hallowe’en costumes on huge sales.  It’s a great way to build up a collection of outfits and costumes.

    I wish you could send/share/post some photos, I’ll bet they would be fantastic.write anytimePBT

    What would you say to a mid 20 something guy who was wanting to be bent over a knee but has never had an actual spanking before?

    I would suggest that you seek out a spanker who will listen to you, your worries, your fear, your excitement.  Many times I’ve had guys getting their first spankings over my lap and there are a lot of things to consider. Setting and knowing limits and  which are flexible, which aren’t.  All of your spanking history, and I mean, any fantasies you’d like to share, what you think you want to feel, know, do, experience.  So many variables, but usually I just tell them to come over and we’ll explore together.

    Do write again if you have more questions.  I hope this helps some.PBTxo

    Canada’s Worst Driver 14 (2018)

    Just watching the premiere programme of the amazing series Canada’s Worst Driver, year 14, for 2018.  All I could think through whole great sections of the show was how much two or three of the young men seriously need a damned good spanking.  Entitled, maybe rich (if you can write off five cars in 10 months), stupid about their phones young men who need some serious lessons in public behaviour.

    This one angelic looking lad, he’s so adorable, but he’ll swear like a 1970s movie trucker, and even spit at other cars and drivers.  To me, he needs his jeans and shorts yanked down, possibly in public (it works wonders with @ashadeofrednpink to be scolded and spanked in public), and be given the belt until his bottom is the colour and texture of a 1980′s purple plush car interior.  Several of the young men get everything paid for by their parents/families, and they need some very serious discipline.  They look angelic, dear, sweet, lovely, then they get behind the wheel and they appall me as to the damage their actions cause and the horror to others.

    I’d say that any driver with a cell phone, especially younger drivers who text, email, do anything illegal with their emails should have their bottoms strapped and strapped very thoroughly! PBT

    Okay, is this not one of the coolest GIFs you’ve seen, even though you’ve likely seen it before?  I love it.  That’s why it’s
    #97 in the Purplebowtie Super Sunday
    GIF Parade

    To be able to see his bright red bottom and his face at the same time is wonderful.  Some studios like @rip-spank-jerk do this with multiple cameras, which is quite wonderful. But to show both with one camera and a mirror is inspired, it’s brilliant.  But then, our good friends at Tropixxx have always been far looking and smart in their presentations.  We’re lucky to have such a great variety of different studios producing fascinating images and videos.

    I only wish I knew the story behind this video.  You know, what the lad did to earn his reddened bottom, and the setting behind it all.  If you know more information, please get in touch.  Would also love to see the video sometime, so if you have any connection to that, please do let me know, my friends.
