Corbin's Bend: Tour and Giveaway

Retired Marine Brandon Delt, moves to Corbin’s Bend after his recently divorced wife marries his cousin. Tired of living a non-discipline lifestyle, he fully welcomes the openness of the Corbin’s Bend spanking community. One day he hopes to meet the woman he could make his TiH. He doesn’t expect to meet her on day one.

Carodine Minor’s just in Corbin’s Bend for the summer. Just graduated with her master’s degree in chemistry, Dina isn’t sure of her next step in life. Not once has she ever considered being spanked. Logical woman that she is, when she finds herself intrigued by the idea of a hand across her derriere, she asks for a demonstration from Brandon. One demo turns into a wild night of passion neither wants to let go of.

Take one hot summer. Add in an intellectual chemist and a dominant retired Marine. Once the chemistry ignites, combustion is soon to follow.

Any kind of relationship is a learning experience, especially one wherein lies an energy exchange. In Domestic Discipline, where both may make the rules, but one enforces them and the other submits, that learning experience can be intense – for both sides of the equation. We naturally think the  bottom would want some help  because he/she is not sure if their emotions are the norm, if their top should have insisted on a certain discipline – plus, bottoms do tend to band together. But also the tops need help. If you look at Western society, we’ve trained many of our men never to hit a woman. And then suddenly they are in a DD relationship and know they will need to spank their partner at some point? That’s a huge change in thinking. Not to mention all the other emotional issues that come along with being in such an intense connection.
Thankfully, the creators of Corbin’s Bend thought ahead and every new top or bottom is assigned a mentor – someone who has been there, done that and can help them through the travails of both a DD
 relationship and living in a spanking-friendly community.

“While a few jerks have found their way in, it’s very few and far between. You’ll find that as you work your way in. But,” he said, in a tone of command that caused Brandon’s lips to quirk – once a commanding officer, always a commanding officer. “One of the reasons I came over today was to let you know I’ve been assigned as your mentor.”
“Mentor? Do I need one?”
“Every adult member is assigned one. Any man or woman who’s on the top of the spectrum is assigned someone like me, either a head of household or a spanko, someone who has been in the community since the beginning. We’re here in several capacities. Someone to talk to. A call when you’re confused. When you find a woman and start a relationship, I’m here to bounce ideas off of. Consider me free therapy.”
Snorting a laugh, Brandon shook his head in amusement. “Just what I needed.”
Benjamin shot him one of his lightning-fast grins. “Consider anything you tell me sacrosanct, just as if you were talking to a therapist. The only thing that would ever make me break that was if you claimed you wanted to harm someone and meant it. Otherwise, free range, Delt. So, any questions you need answered right off the bat?”
Knowing the man in front of him did not mince words and if he said he was here for any questions Benjamin had he meant it, Brandon took him seriously. “How many single women in the community?” His wife divorcing him didn’t hurt, though her marrying his cousin did, and he hoped to find someone to at least spend time with if not build something more substantial.
“There’s a few. And Denver’s only an hour away.”
“Besides the rule book I received, anything I should know or be aware of?”
“Keep in mind this is a spanking community. Hell, Jonathon and I have been in a DD relationship for a long time, but I was on maneuvers when he moved us here. The first time I was home for a few weeks he had to grab my arm when I saw a man slap a woman on the ass. My first instinct was to protect her and he explained they were a couple and public spanking was something I would get used to.” A twinkle entered his eyes. “It’s a bit shocking the first few times you see it. Oh, also… if you hear yelling or screaming from a house, most of the time that’s discipline related. If you’re worried about it, tell me, Jonathon, or one of the board and we’ll look into it.”
Shaking his head, Brandon tried to imagine it and couldn’t. “Is it easy?”
“Getting used to the open community? Or being in a domestic discipline relationship?” The question again pointed out just how easily his friend saw through him.
“Both, but mainly the latter. I’ve wanted that kind of relationship for a long time, but have no idea what to expect.”
“Easy? No. Especially not at first. Which is where me, your mentor, comes in. She, also, would have a mentor. But the thing is no relationship is easy. You both decide on your rules together and when she breaks one, it isn’t just disciplining someone, it’s disciplining someone you love. The first time I spanked Jonathon was a major turning point in our relationship. For both of us. And,” he chuckled, “last summer when I came home for good, was another one. He wasn’t used to me being around all the time and suddenly being subject to our rules twenty-four-seven.
“You’ll have your ups and downs and will learn your partner’s tells. But, I think being a Marine trains us for this. We’re used to taking charge and being in control; we’re also used to watching out for others and making sure they stay safe. This is just something you will have to temper into your own relationship when it happens.”
“Temper?” Brandon asked in surprise.
