Age Ain't Nothing But A Number

 A friend of mine recently mentioned that Sandra Bullock "is good looking for an older person." I laughed at the thought that she's considered old because I wouldn't say so. And yes, she does look damn good. Why do people have to include age in a comment like that at all? When one looks at a picture of a beautiful woman why can't they think, "wow, that's a beautiful woman" as opposed to "she looks really good for her age"?

A lot of people are judged by their age, good or bad. Someone may think I'm stupid because I'm 25 and must not know much about life. Sure, I can quote any Adam Sandler movie and will always remember all of 'N Sync's lyrics. So what? I also enjoy The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Audrey Hepburn movies. Assuming a younger person is stupid is as silly as assuming any older person is smart. There are geniuses and idiots in all age groups, I'm sure most can attest to that.

Even in our kink there can be some division. I've seen various TNG groups strictly for people ages 18-30. Any private group is free to make their own rules of course, but why the division? When one turns 31 are they ready to just buy their burial plot already? I suppose I could start a group strictly for 25 year old spankos but it probably wouldn't be that big and therefore not a lot of fun.

I admit, I've thought that way before. If you had asked me when I was 16 about being 30, my reply would've been "oh my god, that's sooo old." Lol. Fortunately I've matured since then and really don't care anymore. Coming out into the spanking scene opened my eyes to a whole new world and a chance to associate with all types of people that I wouldn't otherwise know. And I'm very thankful for that as I've created many wonderful friendships and can't imagine my life without all these people in it. I think there is always something to learn from a person, no matter their age. That's one thing I've always loved about the spanking scene, the variety of people in it. We come from all different backgrounds, all ages, but we have this common thread that brings us all together. And that is a wonderful thing.

Lea,
You are so awesome; you have more wit and wisdom than most people regardless of age. And, I have to agree, I was amazed at how well our friends communicated at the weekend get together; especially, the respect we have for each others differences.

PS I been to concerts by the groups: Iron Maiden, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold and enjoy XBOX 360 video games.

I'd agree! I think it's all (mostly) in the mind anyway Lea. And that's coming from a 53 yr old youngster! :) Sara

HI Lea,

I think you'll find that a lot of us spankos are far older than we look. Spanking keeps us young!

Hugs,
Hermione

I agree with many of the 'spanking blogger's. In my case I love to spank a naughty 'mature' lady. These women all seem to have voluptous bare bottoms, that any man could 'dream' of. And when they wear garter-belt and stockings, that encase those beautiful sumptous naked rear ends, I'm in heaven.

heheheh i so agree with Hermione ;) xxx

Lea said...

@joey, thank you! I love the variety of people in the group, it keeps things interesting.

@sara and @Hermione, I agree that we are ageless in TTWD.

@sixofthebest, as long as a cane is involved then age is but a number, right? ;-)

@kiwigirliegirl, she's a smart lady. :-)

I have to agree, spanking does keep us young. I am in my early 50's and while I may feel that I can't do a lot of things I could 25 years ago, in my head I still feel like I am young. Sex, spanking, and traveling does it for me (feeling younger).
Also helps in the company you keep. Even with our age differences, would be nice to know what it is like to spank a 25 year old, since we did not take up spanking until about 5 years ago ;)

Ursus Lewis said...

Well said Lea. But I'll spank you anyway...

Lea said...

@MyMask, I couldn't tell you since I don't top. ;-)

@Urs, Umm... not the response I was going for. Lol.

Arthur said...

@lea I only see mischievous bottoms, not their age. Really great post, on a subject which more people should be aware of. In our community, safe & sane are things I care about. Also, as a not so distant graduate of the 30+ crowd, I would hate to have to start walking around using a walker just to be accepted by the under 30 group.

Oh,...and yes, I also will be happy to continue to spank you.

What mischievous bottoms is Arthur talking about? I don't see any mischievous bottoms. Do you Lea?

eileen061209 said...

Just a couple of comments if I may, lea....

Please relay the message to sixofthebest that if he truly seeks a voluptuous, sumptuous mature bare bottom available for a serious otk spanking, he need only go west...go west, sir, until you arrive in California. I'm waiting anxiously.

In addition, Mr. Arthur's comment about "hate to have to start walking around using a walker" just to be accepted by the under 30 group is not particularly amusing to me. After 4 months of crutches [you remember those, lea...the ones you complained about being too noisy] 3 weeks in a hospital for a complete hip joint replacement WHEN I WAS STILL YOUNG, 2 months with a walker until I could gladly use crutches again.....let me say that in the appropriate scenario you will be begging for a walker. And after all, when you really stop and think about it, is the under 30 crowd really worth it?

Lea said...

@Arthur, when did this become a sign up sheet? ;-)

@bree, not sure who he has in mind there either. It certainly couldn't be anyone present on this blog.

@eileen, I do recall the noisy crutches. But it was helpful to know who was coming and going in the Cherry House based on people's walk. :-)
