Wow, Pandora, I've found your post on marks really liberating - I could almost have written it myself; you express openly and beautifully the fetish I have not dared to talk about to anyone. Thank you. I was never caned at school, and have craved those lovely marks on my bottom ever since. I am disappointed with most spanking material, which seems to be mainly about pain - and nothing about the beauty and pride in those marks. Now that I am well past my youth, even middle age, it is probably too late for me to work out that fetish with safety, but your blog has at least set me free to enjoy it in my imagination with even greater pleasure. Thank you.
