Christmas is a magical time, when we give presents to show our love and appreciation to our dear ones. I have been touched by the gifts bestowed upon me by my faithful retinue of slaves and company of thralls. So I want to thank them sincerely and hope to see them over the festive season or soon after. Of course there is a strong fetish element in their gifts, high stilettos, thigh length leather boots, waspies, thongs and so forth. Your goddess will be delighted to wear them for you in your next session, you naughty boys! But…. do you think I will be less strict in my discipline and correction of you all? …. well maybe just this once, even a stern Dominatrix does have a soft spot for the most loyal and submissive of you. However, I was impressed by one humble slave, who requested an extra spanking after giving me some additional charms for my bracelet: “spare the rod and spoil the child, --- an old Victorian saying,” he quipped. So I flexed my biceps and gave him a few more over my knee, so that the dungeon resounded with the impact on his little plump buttocks. Anyway, I look forward to seeing old and new slaves in the New Year in my discreet Temple of Pleasures and Pains, happy Christmas and best wishes to you all, Mistress Tanya.
