In the garden there is a pole, cemented into the ground with a length of chain attached near to the top and falling to perhaps half way down the pole, its a whipping post, cuffs are attached to the chain when in use.
The pole is situated to the left side of an outbuilding, its a fairly large building, about the same as a double garage, perhaps bigger, it has windows which are curtained and it sits in the very back of the garden. Its kept locked.
The outbuilding is the 'play' room/dungeon or as i call it the room of doom, although its not all doom many pleasures are had in there as well.
Inside it is mostly open plan, there is a small cubby hole to make coffee/tea and there is a wet room large enough for 2 bodies. The 'furniture' consists of St Andrews cross, spanking/caning bench designed so that the top half of the body is fully laid down and the lower half splits in to 2 pieces for legs, so the effect is you are bent over with legs wide, exposed and secured...basically like a hands and knees position.
There is a long padded bench, which is just simply flat, it has a built in cage underneath, the middle of the room is dominated by the suspension rig which works via a pulley. There is a large chest of drawers, full of the little bits and bobs, clamps, needles, weights, cuffs etc, a large ornamental vase holds an array of canes. One wall has a row of hooks for the various whips, crops, paddles...and there is a sofa for 'down time'. Its carpeted throughout...well obviously apart from the wet room.
Its funny i remember thinking when he first introduced me to the outbuilding, aside from the horror/excitement of 'what the fuck have i got myself into' that what must people think, how do you explain that.
And you know people look past it, they accept on the rare occassions a query is made that the pole is whats left of an old washing line that used to be there, the building houses old 'stuff', you keep it simple it and no more is thought of it. The children pay no mind to it because no big deal is made out of it..its understood that its kept locked to keep the 'stuff' safe and thats it..why elaborate!
I wander being the nosy person that i am would i be so easily blindsighted if i was on the outside looking in, i suppose its similar in a way to being submissive, or/and being in ttwd, its not something you or others 'see' its something you are...its just there.
