Hubby has been locked up for some time, now. This weekend I've allowed him out of his cage, off and on, for good behavior and excruciating teasing. I promised him release tonight. Wait, I need to backtrack a bit. An old friend of mine came to visit for the weekend. Though hubby is slowly learning to respect my wishes, we are new to this and he still flounders a bit. Thursday evening I unlocked him for a good cleaning and some exquisite tease and denial, which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Friday my friend arrived. That evening, after friend and I came home from the movies, my husband, in his OLD way, did a little sexual banter with my friend. Not much, but enough for my eyebrow to lift a bit in question. After helping my friend arrange for bed, I calmly led my husband to our bedroom, locked the door, and explained to him that I was a bit upset that he'd committed a direct infraction as to our contract. I explained what he'd done, had him bend over the bed, and gave him a sound spanking. When my hand was tired I pulled out a small whip and finished. Though he was in pain, he apologized and thanked me profusely for guiding him. Last night he painted my toenails, then masturbated me while I watched a little porn and reminded him that tonight would be his night for release and wasn't he excited? I told him that I wanted to ride him and orgasm with him inside me...then I would allow him to take me from behind and relieve himself on my ass. He was very excited, but torn. He decided that he did not want release because he doesn't like the behavior changes he see's in himself for a few days after. He asked that he not be allowed to come, but to satisfy me and deny himself. Well, hubby does enjoy having me this way and, try as he may, he pushed the envelope a little too far, flung himself onto his back with his hands behind his head, and had a minor, interrupted orgasm. He felt horrible and apologized for letting me down. I reminded him that I'd given him permission to orgasm and the only person he'd let down was himself. I am still a bit of a pushover, so I felt bad for him...but at the same time, I'm so very proud of the man he is striving to be for me. I'm curious as to how many others have experienced something similar to this?
