Portrait of a woman paddled at the O-Bay Club

This is the first in a series of portraits - some (like this one) mere sketches and others more detailed - of women who have been brought along to O-Bay Club meetings.

My intention is to gather together a few of these portraits, and then ask my readers to vote on whose story they would most like to hear.

I will then respond.

There was a woman who had been caught stealing from her husband’s wall safe to satisfy her own desire for designer clothes, and the husband had sentenced her to thirty severe strokes of the paddle on her knicker-covered bottom. These were administered by a volunteer who looked like a gorilla on his wedding day. The woman was crying her eyes out by the twenty-fifth stroke and vowing audibly that she would never do such a thing again.
