Paddle Portraits


We had our house flood this summer due to a broken pipe. We are still waiting for some of the repairs to be completed on the areas of the house that were damaged, which means that part of the wood shop has had to become storage space for the time being.

We shut the shop down for a few weeks in order to deal with the damage. Then, due to the limited space, Spencer re-opened our paddle shop with a shift in our business model, from craft on demand to a more retail approach, where what you see in our online store is what you will receive. This has allowed Spencer a chance to explore new woods and new designs. Plus, having pieces ready to ship has also allowed more time for custom and special orders.

Being able to re-open the shop while waiting for this house madness to end has probably kept us both sane. 

But now that we are listing individual paddles, I’ve had to step up my photography game. Every listing needs its own pictures showing the paddle in all its unique detail. I tried a standard white backdrop, followed by black, but neither showed off the wood the way I wanted.

I wondered if I could build little sets inside the lightbox that would feature the paddle but also provide texture and color. Fortunately, Spencer was happy to let me give it a try, and so when we  re-opened the shop earlier this fall, we did so with a Fall Collection, with pictures featuring autumnal colors and in some cases, a Halloween theme.

I had a ridiculous amount of fun; it was like the paddles were models at a photoshoot. But one thing I learned with the Fall Collection was that trying to change the set for each individual piece takes forever, so I’ve had to edit myself a bit. 

You’ll see what I mean below. Here are some of the photos I took last weekend for holiday listings and below are some of my favorite Fall Collection photos. And just in case anyone here is a concerned occultist, that’s not a real ouija board, that’s a Halloween placemat I found at Marshall’s!

Begin With the (Rear) End in Mind

That time I got suspended from Twitter for being naughty, or maybe just too fabulous.


TLDR: I deleted my booty pics off Twitter and decided to start blogging again, because I love butts and I love the people who love butts. 

"Begin with the end in mind." At my place of work, it's a philosophy we've adopted after years of playing it by ear and flying by the seats of our pants. It stands for planning, making the right decisions to reach the goal, and always keeping the endgame in mind. 

Today, as the end of Twitter looms loud and clear, I realized I need to begin again in the social media world. But why? What is my goal, my endgame? Why have I tried to be a presence in the online spanking world for over fifteen years? Why do I still want to be a part of anything online, when the Internet is now as much a source of destruction as it is a place of creation? 

So much has changed over these last 15 years. But these things, dear to my heart, remain:

1) Butts. Bums. Tushes. Asses. Arses. Rear ends. Bottoms. Booties. Buttocks. 

2) Spanking butts (and their synonyms). 

3) Self-discovery - I don't just seek to help myself understand myself, but I also want to help others discover themselves, to encourage the world to embrace their own desires, kinks, and, cravings - especially when it comes to butts, and spanking butts. (Please note, I always mean adult consenting butts.)

When I first decided to join the "spank-o-verse," my choices were Blogger, Twitter, and Tumblr. Now there are too many choices, so it made the most sense to follow the advice of Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music: "Let's start at the very beginning. It's a very good place to start." I began my life in the spank-o-verse with this blog, and so, to this blog I return. Let's start at the very beginning - and let's begin with the end in mind - the rear end, that is!

To be honest, I wasn't  prolific on Twitter. Every now and again I liked to post pictures of my bottom, or retweet fellow spankos, or show off Spencer's latest paddle creations for his Etsy shop. Even still, now that the app is imploding and will likely either be terminated or overrun by cartoon villains, I decided it wasn't the best or safest place for pictures of my butt. 

This morning, I scrolled through my profile and both saved and deleted all the pictures of me. But they can't just not be on the Internet, amirite? So, without further ado about Twitter, here are some of my faves.

Alive and Well and Paddling!

Hello spankos! Once again it's been awhile. Last you heard from me back in March, Mr. W and I had recently launched Little Red Spanking, our adult spanking paddle shop on Etsy. I wish I'd chronicled the growth of LRS from then to now with blog posts and pics - I have some catching up to do! 

I am incredibly proud of Mr. W and the paddles he crafts. He puts his heart and soul into each piece and I know that is the number one reason the shop is thriving. I want to show off everything he makes! I hope it's okay that I start doing a little bit more of that here.

I must also say - we are so grateful to our fellow spankos in this community! Without this shared passion, a spanking paddle shop would not be possible. We love bringing you the quality and craftsmanship we know you want and deserve - the same we would want from a spanking toy company. This is who we are.








All paddles are handcrafted by Mr. W, aka Spencer Williams, from domestic and exotic hardwoods, finished with body safe and all natural mineral oil and beeswax, and shipped discreetly. See more at Little Red Spanking on Etsy.

#FreePaddleFriday - Poplar Hairbrush Giveaway Starting Today

 Go to Mr. W's Twitter Profile

As promised, I want to include the blogosphere in our #freepaddlefriday promos. You will need a Twitter account. Go to Mr. W's Twitter profile @MrWilliamsTLRW and follow him (because he is amazing) then retweet the above tweet to enter. Winners are announced on Friday night. We ship by USPS so we CAN ship to PO Boxes. We always ship discretely from our LLC. 

Here's the tweet if the pic is hard to read on your device:

New week new #freepaddlefriday! Retweet to enter to win this Poplar Hairbrush paddle. Good Luck! Winner announced Friday. In the meantime, come see the rest of our brat beating bottom burners at littleredspanking.com Happy Spanking! #otk #spanking #paddled #domesticdiscipline

If you do follow us on Twitter, say hello and let us know you're from over here! You can find me at @AbbyW2007. Mr. W and I have found a lovely group of spankos, along with the usual insane outliers you'd expect. We'd be happy to have you! You really can tailor your Twitter experience. I almost never see anything political. I see a lot a lot a lot of butts.

I am looking forward to writing and posting new spanking vignettes and short spanking stories here soon. I am still a bit desperate for time. I work for a small independently owned business and we are scrambling to get our technology in place and our work from home stations set up. The Coronavirus has also caused an uptick in our business (which is a positive, absolutely) but my brain is cooked by the end of the day.

Please do stay tuned, as I think having this blog as a creative outlet is going to be an important part of my sanity once my home office is ready and I stop leaving the house (except to drop packages at the post office for as long as they will let us, Arizona isn't closed yet). This may be our last #freepaddlefriday for a while because of all this, so get in while you can!

Sinful Sundays, Mondays, and So Forth


Sometimes I post #sinfulsunday pics on my Twitter. I didn't post one today, I did a naughty survey - more on that in just a moment - but since I should have been posting them on my blog all along, I thought I'd start getting my blog friends caught up. Here's a candid shot of my tush playing dress-up in my Moulin Rouge panties last month.

I spent too much time today playing with my new Photoshop Express app, but it's letting me make the neatest product photos for our paddles. I love graphic design but my skill level is amateur. This sounds like a product plug, but it's only a plug for our paddles! I'm just having fun with this app and if you have suddenly found yourself with some free time on your hands, it's a good one. I have also been known to add fun filters to pictures of my own butt. Again with the Twitter, but I posted this one just after getting the app a couple weeks ago. Many of you will be seeing this tomorrow morning, so these sentiments are for you!


You may recognize that photo of my butt from the pics I posted yesterday. That brings us back around to the Joker paddle. Mr. W crafts these so beautifully for Little Red Spanking. They're thin, but the two woods we offer this paddle in - Knotty Alder and Walnut - are heavy enough that the weight and density of the wood balances the depth. The smacks are bright and the burn is warm. Just the right length for OTK or any position you so desire.

I'm so proud of the work Mr. W is doing! And I'm pretty proud of these little product promos too!






We run a #freepaddlefriday promo whenever we can. In this time of crisis and homebound spankos, we are considering it more important than ever to get quality handmade implements into the hands of our fellow kinksters. Get yourself a Twitter account if you don't already have one, follow @MrWilliamsTLRW, and retweet his #freepaddlefriday post for the week once it's live. He'll start a new one tomorrow, I'll post it here to remind you and let you know what we'll be giving away.

xoxo Abby

5 Updates Regarding Abby, With Spanked Bare Bottom Pics Because I've Missed You



Dear Spanko Blogosphere,

I have been remiss in paying you the attention you deserve. Perhaps now I will finally have the time at home I've needed. It only took the end of the world, but I have so much to tell you!

But first, let's just post something!

Here are 5 Updates Regarding Abby:

1. Littleredspanking.com opened in January. Mr. Williams is in the workshop filling custom orders as I type this. We did it, the paddle shop is real!

2. Mr. W and I are both healthy and are occupying ourselves with spanking each other and doing spanking-related activities, such as paddle making and getting back to blogging. :-)

3.  I have become so strong in the last year! When I was training hard, I maxed my barbell deadlift at 230 lbs and my squat at 165 lbs. My tush is powerful!

4. We have amassed an absurd amount of erotica, smut, and sexuality books for our personal collection in the last year. I expect to feature interesting titles here in the future!

5. The vintage bookstore I opened on Etsy a year ago, Little Red Bookshop, has been a source of joy and mental health. I love finding and listing unusual and sometimes ridiculous titles. Right now I have everything from a signed hardcover first edition of Douglas Adams' The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul to the movie tie-in novelization of Armageddon. Mr. W hoards the sexy books, but I manage to feature them on the shop from time to time. Click here to go right to the Erotica, Sex, and XXX shelf. 

The paddle at the top is our Joker paddle in Walnut. Mr. W made one for me in Knotty Alder and used it my birthday weekend. It was an absolute delight with bright red results!

Liver, Liver, Chinese Dinner



There are three C's that make up my favorite romantic night: caning, Chinese food, and cuddles.

Some would say that punishment is it's own reward, but the very mention that there will be Chinese takeout after discipline serves as foreplay for me. I'll take an extra dozen strokes for an extra egg roll.

Instituted in 2005 in the early days of our relationship, I'll admit, I think these nights were originally bribes to get me to enjoy caning more, and that's okay because I sure did come to love it! But they're fewer and farther between now. We save such triple-C nights as a treat for birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations. So when suddenly it turned out I might have to give them up entirely, it felt like being told there were no more roses for Valentine's day, no more stockings for Christmas. Don't get me wrong, I love taking a good caning, but I love taking it followed by a Chinese feast and a fun movie at home while cuddling with Mr. W so much more.

I went to the doctor because I've been feeling more and more worn out the last few months. I thought it might be my depression rearing it's head, but I also wanted to have my thyroid checked, along with whatever else the doctor thought might be wise. I went to a new primary care provider as I hated my last one, so they had no medical history on me. Fortunately, they agreed with running some blood tests, and two days later I had my first news: my liver enzymes were elevated, they wanted to take more blood and do an ultrasound on my abdomen.

This was terrifying news. I quit drinking 3 years 3 months ago. I've lost almost 100 lbs. I am Wonder Woman. But here it was, the damage was already done. In my dramatic assessment, I had briefly become invincible, but now I was probably going to die. Worse, first I was going to lose all my lower internal organs, I wouldn't be able to be spanked, I wouldn't be able to have sex or do butt stuff. I would be worse than dead.

The ultrasound was no help to my assumption. The results from that were that I had high echoes in my liver and a lesion on my kidney. I'll save you the agony that took over a week for me to learn - my kidneys are fine, there are no lesions or tumors. Like seeing a little penis on a baby in an ultrasound and then giving birth to a girl, there was nothing actually there to be seen. But high echoes in my liver! Hello - hello - - hello - - -

I have fatty liver. Of all the unattractive disease names! Now I'm seeing a gastroenterologist and I have a test this coming Friday to find out how much of my liver is functioning. While the liver has an incredible ability to repair itself, and I may have already done a lot of internal repair by becoming a weight-lifting gym-loving goddess, what's dead is dead and if any of my liver is dead, it isn't coming back.

Now, what I should have done is wait to write this until I have the final verdict. But I thought maybe I would blog more sexy spanking and bum stuff if sometimes I just blog stuff about me, so here we are, trying to explain what Chinese food caning night has to do with my fatty liver.

Well, it turns out I shouldn't eat most food. My liver is having trouble filtering out the nasties like fat, salt, and white flour and sugar, so the nutrients and energy my body needs aren't getting distributed via my bloodstream as well as they could be. Sure enough, a week and two days into this diagnosis and having trimmed my diet to mostly green vegetables, fish, and a little yogurt, my energy is significantly improved, my sleep is better, and I'm not crying all the time. I've cut my protein intake in half and it's incredible. It turns out I have more energy from 10g of protein than from 20g, which makes me realize my body wasn't actually processing all the protein I was giving it.

I'm hoping that the results of my next test will tell me that most of my liver is just fine, that I can still have a treat meal now and again. If so, maybe I will be so lucky as to enjoy the 3 C's for Christmas! I'm hoping that we don't have to add a 4th C: cirrhosis. But if we do, I am already well on my way to understanding what I need to do for my body to feel better.

Do you have a favorite food after a spanking? Or a medical concern that makes you worry that someday you will not be able to partake in this thing we do? You are not alone!

I thought I could make the whole thing fun with a little naked tush accountability, so while I am on a focused path to losing more weight and being the healthiest me I can be, I am going to try to share a weekly pic. I love my butt the way it is now! It's curvy and jiggly and so much fun. But a shapelier butt is going to mean a hella sexy liver, so I need to do this.

Abby Williams, trying to make fatty liver sexy since December 2019.

I went to the doctor and all I got was this peachy butt sticker and fatty liver disease!

A #WhippyWednesday Fantasy

Craving spanking? Me too! Today only: 10% select spanking and bdsm novels at Little Red Bookshop!

I woke up wanting to take Mr. W over my knee and begin his day with a long, slow hand spanking. The kind that begins with a sting to both palm and buttocks but warms quickly even in the mid-autumn morning chill. I wanted to coax his bottom pink lovingly, firmly.

Once rouged, his backside would be ready for my bedside Auntie Abby paddle, this one in knotty alder, a perfect lighter weight hardwood to continue the work of my hand. It gets me, this paddle, and oh does it get him too. Each swat lands perfectly and in this fantasy, I imagine his legs straightening, ankles twisting as he adjusts to the next level of discipline. I hear him sigh in memory and fantasy; I am wet just from the memory of how wet I become when I spank him like this.

This is no punishment spanking. Each smack, progressively harder, is a reward for the day yet to come. I deliver a productive pain, the kind that can be stored, drawn upon, resourced for strength. I envision a moment later in the day - he is struck by a moment of doubt, an uncertainty in one thing or another. And then: the memory of the spanking, how beautifully he took all those strokes - he stands taller, his confidence returned.

Ours is not a power exchange but a power supercollider. The spanking is not a give and take, it is a multiplication of the core energies that drive us. It is our kink become nourishing substance, become the energy of our day.

Instead of this fantasy coming to fruition, it is only Wednesday and my employment sadly involves things other than Mr. W's backside, so off to work I went, only to find very little to do and plenty of time to fantasize. A blog post was born.

I also set up a little Whippy Wednesday 10% sale on Little Red Bookshop, so that I could feel connected to our fellow spankos. Thank you for swinging by my blog and maybe our shop too! This is such a huge piece of my heart between spanking and books, being able to share it with the kinky world means more than my little heart knows how to say.

Curious about the Knotty Alder Auntie Abby paddle? I'll be writing about it more so keep an eye out. Or check it out for yourself!
