I mentioned in my last entry that I’m not a great fan of ceremony, particularly when it comes to spanking. I think I’d go crazy in a relationship where there was a daily/weekly/monthly/whatever “accounting” of misdeeds that followed the same pattern. It works for some people, including some good friends of mine, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It just doesn’t work for me.

That, I think, was my biggest problem with The Game. I’m a big fan of spontaneity when it comes to play. Admittedly, we don’t get to engage in purely spontaneous play as much as we used to, but I still prefer it to be something more or less unplanned, or if planned, only to the extent of “I’m going to spank you after the baby’s in bed.”

Also, because it was Sparkle’s “task” to do something naughty before the midnight hour, part of me felt that I shouldn’t do anything to prompt naughtiness on her part, that I’d somehow be tainting The Game if I did. Somewhat irrational, perhaps, but there. I also very much like seeing what her wicked imagination comes up with on its own.

It was a fun experiment, as I said, and I’m glad we did it. We may even do it again sometime (challenges are always fun). But for the most part, I’m glad we’re back to naughtiness as usual.
