When he came back upstairs, he had a garden stake in his hand...about the size of the cane but less flexible. I think it might be metal covered in a hard plastic - I'm not actually sure. I was told to get in position over the ottoman, and then he proceeded to wail on my bottom with the stake, the plank, and the crop pretty much nonstop for about ten minutes. And, yes, the new way of using the crop is even more ouchie (Lord knows I didn't think that was possible)! He was also much stricter about me staying in position, and lectured me throughout the whole experience. It's pretty amazing how far HE has come in his training into the role of HoH. Yikes.
It's been about five hours and my bottom is still REALLY tender. I am still feeling close to tears, pretty humble, and more surrendered. He most certainly provided a memorable spanking today, and it was only a training spanking! He said my next punishment will be more severe and memorable. I'm going to do everything I can to avoid earning a punishment for sure!
As far as training goes, tomorrow is my LAST day!
