A Video to Celebrate Learning Domestic Discipline's 3rd Birthday!!

Third birthday
Welcome LDD readers!  Today is the day!!  We're celebrating Learning Domestic Discipline's 3rd birthday and we're so excited!  It has been a wonderful three years and we wanted to do something special to say thank you.  So, we recorded a video.
  We (Clint and Chelsea) recorded a short video expressing our thanks to you, the reader and supporter of Learning Domestic Discipline, which you can find below.  We talk about the past three years, and we talk about some new things coming in the near future on LDD.  You'll even get to meet our new baby boy!
  If video watching isn't your thing, then we want to take this opportunity to express our thanks to you for reading the LDD website and supporting us for the past three years.  It has been so much fun interacting with and learning from you all, and your support means so much to us.  We hope you know how truly appreciative of you we are.  Without our readers, nothing on LDD is possible.  So thank you.
  We're looking forward to the next three years and beyond!  We have a lot of exciting things in store for Learning Domestic Discipline, and we hope to continue having you along for the ride.  :)

Monthly Recap: February 2014 (Plus a Brand New Free Download!)

  February 2014 was a great month for Learning Domestic Discipline.  We had a Valentine's Day promotion, a brand new downloadable podcast, a new downloadable packet, and a number of articles that hopefully helped (and will continue to help) a few domestic discipline couples out there.  Given that this is our first monthly recap of the year, we have a few special things to include in it as well.
  The first things we want to include are the January 2014 articles.  We had our baby right at the end of January, so we weren't able to write a January 2014 recap.  We'll make up for that in this monthly recap.  The second thing we want to include is a brand new download!  You'll see it at the end of this post.  And third, we want to make one slight modification to our 2014 posting schedule.
  Originally we were going to do a Mailbag Monday article every other week as part of our new 2014 posting schedule.  On second thought, we want to do one every week instead.  It's perhaps our most popular column, and those submitting questions shouldn't have to wait weeks to have them answered.  We're also going to post Mailbag Monday articles on United States holidays that happen to fall on a Monday.  So, look for Mailbag Monday articles every Monday going forward, starting tomorrow. :)
  Alright, let's get the recap going, shall we?  Here's a recap of the January and February articles here at Learning Domestic Discipline:
January 4th -- Transforming Your Relationship: A Comprehensive Look Into the Domestic Discipline Lifestyle - We've released our brand new eBook!  We're really excited about it and this post tells you all about it.  Check it out!
January 8th -- New Year's Resolutions 2014: Domestic Discipline Style - We outline our New Year's Resolutions for 2014 (as they relate to domestic discipline) and challenge you with a few as well.  Are you up for them?
January 12th -- Random Updates From Learning Domestic Discipline - This brief post touches on a few things going on in our lives, and and includes a couple of LDD updates.
January 15th -- Why Use Spanking Implements? - I (Clint) outline six reasons couples choose to use spanking implements when conducting a punishment spanking in a domestic discipline relationship.  Do you have other reasons to add in the comments?
January 18th -- Presenting the Learning Domestic Discipline Couples Challenge Packet! - All 12 LDD Couples Challenges are now in one convenient spot.  Download your free copy today and take the 12-month challenge!
January 30th -- Our Baby Boy Has Arrived! - He's here, he's here, HE'S HERE!  We're proud parents again, and we're so excited that our second baby boy is healthy and doing well.  He's so cute (as the picture in this post illustrates)! :)
February 3rd -- Mailbag Monday: Week 34 - Do spankings always need to be done bare bottomed?  How do you respectfully tell your HoH their lecturing is lacking?  How are we (Clint and Chelsea) going to explain the domestic discipline dynamic to our kids?  We answer these questions in the latest round of Mailbag Monday questions.
February 7th -- Five Things Friday: Love Is In The Air Edition - Both of us contribute to this Five Things post!  I talk about not spanking in a while, Chelsea gives you a new DD novel to read, and we celebrate an anniversary!
February 12th -- Why Spanking is a Part of a Domestic Discipline Relationship - Why do people include spanking in their relationships?  We outline several reasons why for anyone looking into the lifestyle, or anyone that may be curious about the spanking aspect of it.
February 15th -- A Brand New Podcast: Types of Spankings - We discuss seven - count them - SEVEN different types of spankings in our latest free downloadable podcast.  Give it a listen and let us know what you think!
February 21st -- Five Things Friday: The "We Survived!" Edition - A lot of things have been going on in our personal lives, and as the title suggests, we've survived the first two months of 2014.  Read all about what has been happening with us in this post.
February 26th -- Abuse of Power in Domestic Discipline - A recent concern of ours prompted this article.  We talk about why it's so important that a head of the household refrain from abusing their power in a domestic discipline relationship.
  Whew!  That was a lot to cover!  If you happened to miss anything over the course of the past two months, hopefully this little recap gets you all up to speed. :) 
  And, as promised, we're offering a brand new free download!  The 2013 Saturday Stories Packet is now available to download for free from the Learning Domestic Discipline Download site. The packet contains over 15 guest posts on a variety of domestic discipline topics including beginning domestic discipline, domestic discipline boot camp, and more. CLICK HERE to download your copy! 
  We want to take this opportunity to, once again, thank you for being patient with us as we adjust our lives (and our schedules) to the new baby.  We also want to thank those of you who have expressed their congratulations and support.  It truly means so much to us.
  Thanks for being a part of Learning Domestic Discipline this February!  We hope to see you in March (and beyond) as we continue to bring you new domestic discipline content.  See you then!

What's New at Learning Domestic Discipline for 2014

2014 is finally here! It's hard to believe how quickly 2013 flew by, but we're looking forward to a great year and we hope you're as excited as we are about all the new changes to Learning Domestic Discipline that you can see both now, and as the year progresses. We have a lot of fun projects in store for this year, and we're looking forward to making this year the best one yet for Learning Domestic Discipline.

So, what is new to kick off the month? Well, let us show you.

Here's an overview of the new stuff on the site, and a sneak peek of what's to come:
  • By now you have probably noticed that the blog looks a little bit different. We re-did the blog, in honor of 2014, with a new design and layout that we think/hope is easier to navigate.  It also gives us more space to include all of our 2014 projects as they roll out.  We may still make a few minor changes here and there, but for the most part the new re-design is complete.  We're anxious to hear what you think!
  • Throughout the month of December we have been working hard on a new feature called The Learning Domestic Discipline Directory.  This feature is aimed to make finding information on domestic discipline significantly easier for readers.  It will archive every one of our posts (trust us, there's a lot) making them easier to find, and the will be broken down by more specific categories.  The directory is almost complete (we're putting the final touches on it this weekend!) and should launch any day now.  We'll update this post, and the blog, when it launches!
  • We made some major changes to the Learning Domestic Discipline Posting Schedule for 2014.  We know how much our readers appreciate the LDD downloads, eBooks, podcasts, and more.  So, we will be incorporating many more of those (two a month!!) into our schedule this year, and we'll be moving a few other things around.  Don't worry, all of our series (such as Mailbag Monday, Five Things Friday, and Saturday Stories) will still be included, they're just on a different schedule.  We'll also be cutting the weekly recaps down to one large monthly recap in an effort to give us more time to focus on some of the big projects we're working on for the year. The new posting schedule will begin on Monday January 6th.  Click here to review it and make sure you're up to date.
  • Since we'll be including many more downloads into our schedule this year, we will also be doing more Frequently Asked Questions Podcasts as a result.  We've done one so far (and it was a big hit!) so we'd love to incorporate several more into the year's schedule, but we need your help to make that happen.  So, from now on, you can submit questions for either Mailbag Monday (the same way as before) or to be answered on our next FAQ Podcast.
  • On the right hand side of the blog (on the new website) you may have noticed a new progress bar feature.  This will allow you to stay up to date with what we're currently working on (or, one of many things we're currently working on) and see the progress of that specific project.  We're planning several major projects this year, so we hope that this will make it easier for readers to see what is coming next, and approximately when they can expect it to be completed.
  And finally, we're starting 2014 off with a bang, and with something that has been in the works for what seems like forever.  It's our brand new eBook!  Here's an overview of the new eBook:

  We're pleased and thrilled to announce that our brand new eBook, Transforming Your Relationship: A Comprehensive Look Into the Domestic Discipline Lifestyle, is now available exclusively through!
  Transforming Your Relationship: A Comprehensive Look Into the Domestic Discipline Lifestyle is tailor made for those interested in learning more about, as well as those just beginning, the domestic discipline lifestyle.  Numerous domestic discipline dynamics and punishments within the lifestyle are defined, detailed, outlined, broken down, and elaborated on in simple terms.  Detailed explanations and relatable examples are given throughout the book to help explain and clarify why the domestic discipline dynamic has become an increasingly popular arrangement adopted by committed couples.

  After reading this book, you'll understand what the domestic discipline lifestyle is, how the dynamics of it work, and how it is designed to enhance virtually any committed couple's relationship.  You'll understand what living the lifestyle is all about, what it requires of both partners in the relationship, and why so many are choosing to live this way.  All your questions about domestic discipline will be answered, and you'll even get some helpful tips along the way, too!
  Transforming Your Relationship: A Comprehensive Look Into the Domestic Discipline Lifestyle is approximately 150 pages (70,000 words) in length and is now available through the Learning Domestic Discipline Products Site.
  We're excited to get 2014 started!  Thank you for your continued readership and support of Learning Domestic Discipline.  Remember, none of this is possible without you, and we appreciate you all so very much.  Here's to great things to come in 2014!

Weekly Recap: December 9th - 15th

  It was a rare week for Learning Domestic Discipline.  Why?  Well, instead of three new articles this week, we posted four!  We added a rare Friday post on a Saturday Stories week.  Needless to say there's a lot to get you all caught up on, so let's get to it!

Here's the latest content added to Learning Domestic Discipline:


Mailbag Monday: Week 31 - We talk about de-sexualizing spankings, we give our advice to single people wanting domestic discipline, and we talk about how we manage our time with all the hectic things going on in our lives in this week's round of Mailbag Monday questions.

What the Domestic Discipline Lifestyle Has Taught Me: Part II - Last week Chelsea told you all about the things she has learned from living the domestic discipline lifestyle for so many years.  This week it's my (Clint's) turn to tell you all about what I have learned from practicing domestic discipline.  (HINT: I've learned a LOT.) 
Domestic Discipline Spanking Round Table Discussion - Spanking romance author Corinne Alexander hosted a Spanking Round Table Discussion this past week, and we were honored and thrilled to be a part of it.  We answered six personal questions that cover everything from the greatest challenges for us in domestic discipline to what appeals to us most about the lifestyle.  Get comfy because there's a lot of info in this article!

Saturday Stories: "Still Going Strong After 41 Years" - Our guest writer this week is one with over four decades of experience in the lifestyle.  Four decades!  Wow!  That's incredibly...well...incredible.  He tells us how it all started and how he and his wife have grown together from practicing domestic discipline for so many years.

  • We're working like crazy to get the new eBook released, as well as the new LDD Directory up and running, before the end of the year.  We're not going to rush them though, and the holidays are rapidly approaching, and we have a baby coming soon, so it's taking some time.  We appreciate you all being so patient.  Both projects are close to completion.  Promise.
  Another week in the books!  Without many weeks left in 2013, the year is quickly coming to a close.  It has gone by fast, but we're looking forward to what 2014 has in store.  We hope you'll join us in the journey.  See you next week, friends. :)

Weekly Recap: December 2nd - 8th


  There's just a shade over three weeks left in 2013!  What a year it has been.  There's still a lot we want to do before this year comes to a close, but it's closing so quickly!  We're working hard to finish up a couple of projects and it shouldn't be too much longer until their launched.  In the meantime, the LDD blog has been staying on schedule with fresh new content for readers to enjoy.

Let's take a look back at the past seven days here at Learning Domestic Discipline if you happened to miss any of it.

Mailbag Monday: Week 30 - We answer questions about the submissive partner testing rules/boundaries, how our spankings have evolved in our own marriage, and we direct readers to a few articles that help in bringing this lifestyle up to the one you love in this week's edition of Mailbag Monday.

What the Domestic Discipline Lifestyle Has Taught Me - Chelsea outlines and elaborates on eight key things that living the domestic discipline lifestyle has taught her.  Are they similar to what you have learned?  What has domestic discipline taught you?

Five Things Friday: December Kickoff Edition - There's a new box set of domestic discipline romance novels available, there's a new Yahoo group for the CDD'ers, and there's reason to spoil Chelsea with a BIG reward.  Now she's given herself a new challenge, and oohhhh boy is it a tough one.  Read all about these things in the latest edition of Five Things.

  • December's Couples Challenge will get all of us in the holiday spirit.  It's all about giving to the less fortunate.  Are you taking the challenge this holiday season?
  • We're almost finished editing and formatting the new eBook!  It won't be too much longer now...
  That puts a nice little bow on another week at LDD.  We'll see you tomorrow with three more Mailbag Monday questions!  Enjoy your upcoming week. :)

Weekly Recap: November 25th - December 1st


It was a short week for Learning Domestic Discipline this week. We took majority of the week off to spend time with family, eat lots of turkey, get some Christmas shopping done, and enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. But, that didn't stop us from answering a few great Mailbag Monday questions or reflecting on a few of the many things that we are thankful for this holiday season. Take a look below at what you may have missed this week.


Mailbag Monday Week 29We kicked off the week, like usual, with Mailbag Monday where we answered three reader-submitted questions about a pretty wide mix of domestic discipline topics. Among this weeks questions were how to handle domestic discipline when one party is injured or ill, how to build up your partners self esteem and we discussed pain tolerances and the ever popular question of "how much should a spanking hurt?". 

Happy Thanksgiving 2013With it being a holiday week, we figured that was a great time to take a break from the usual domestic discipline related Wednesday posts and get a little more personal than we usually do. With it being Thanksgiving, we listed several things that we are each thankful for this week. Some of the things may sound cliche and obvious (family, our health, etc.) and then others are a little bit more off the wall (like the world famous Krispy Kreme donuts that we somehow can't live without). We also made sure to thank you- the readers of Learning Domestic Discipline because we are so grateful and appreciative of your support. Once again, thank you! 

We skipped the Saturday Story feature this week, due to the holiday, however stay tuned for a brand new Saturday Story coming in two weeks! 

  • Today is December 1st (wow how fast this year has gone!) which means it's the first day of Ana's Advent Calendar. If you want more information, or would like to play along, click here for all the details. There are some awesome prizes this year (including some from Learning Domestic Discipline, a variety of eBooks from different domestic discipline fiction authors, and even an Amazon Kindle up for grabs!) so if you're interested in playing be sure to sign up today. 
  • The December edition of the Learning Domestic Discipline newsletter will be sent out this Friday (December 6th). If you haven't signed up already, and would like to receive your copy, please click here. As a reminder, you only receive one email per month from us (the newsletter) and your email address is not used for any other purpose. 
  • We'll be back on a normal posting schedule this upcoming week starting with Mailbag Monday tomorrow morning. We're also currently running about two weeks behind on emails. So, if you emailed us in the past couple of weeks we are hoping to get caught up this week- we apologize for the delay!
Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Weekly Recap November 18th - 24th


A brand new eBook is on the horizon, and Chelsea earned her "One Year No Spanking Challenge" reward!  Those are just two exciting things we talked about this week, and that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of all the new content posted to Learning Domestic Discipline over the past seven days.  If you've missed anything, we'll get you all up to speed.

Here's the latest content added to LDD this past week.


Mailbag Monday: Week 28 - Where can one find a "submissive" woman?  Do spankings always have to be bare bottomed?  How can more respect be given (and earned) in an established 19-year marriage that's just starting to incorporate domestic discipline into it?  We answer these three very good questions in this week's round of Mailbag Monday questions.

Beginning a Domestic Discipline Blog - In this post, we offer tips on how to start and maintain your very own domestic discipline blog.  We hope the things we've learned in our two and a half years of blogging will help aspiring writers/bloggers to maximize their readership and minimize their frustrations.  We'd love to see you a part of the DD blogging community.  Come join us!

Five Things Friday: The Thanksgiving Edition - We announce a new eBook nearing completion, Chelsea reaches her "One Year No Spanking Challenge" mark (and earns a HUGE reward), and we share a very thought-provoking video that everyone should watch in this week's Five Things post.

  • December's LDD Newsletter will be sent out on December 6th, 2013.  It's the last one of the year!  If you'd like to join the free mailing list, you can do so by entering your email address here. (Email address is not used for any other purpose)
  • You'll be seeing a lot of new things happening with Learning Domestic Discipline over the next couple of months.  We've got a lot of projects nearing completion and we can't wait to get them up and running!  Keep an eye out for new downloads, eBooks, podcasts, and LDD entities being launched this winter.  :)
That'll do it for another week here at Learning Domestic Discipline!  We hope you enjoy(ed) all of the new content.  We have more in store for you during Thanksgiving week, so stop on by again soon!  See you next time...

Weekly Recap: November 11th - 17th


  We celebrated two holidays this week!  One was international, the other was a fun one amongst us domestic discipline bloggers.  We celebrated the presence of our silent readers on Tuesday, and we hope you took the opportunity to let us know you're there!  It's always a fun day around blogland, and we sure enjoyed interacting with some of our "silent type" readers.

If you missed anything, let's get you all up to speed with the latest content on the LDD blog.


  This past Monday was the holiday of Veterans Day.  In observance of Veterans Day, there was no Mailbag Monday post written this week.  We'd like to take this opportunity to once again express our appreciation of all of the hard work and sacrifice put in by the  men and women of the military.  Without the men and women of the military, both past and present, we would not have the freedoms that we enjoy today. Thank you all so much for your service.

Love Our Lurkers Day (LOL Day) 2013 - This week featured a rare Tuesday post to celebrate YOU, the LDD readers!  More specifically, the silent readers.  We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to make your presence known!  Stop by the Love Our Lurkers post and leave us a comment (or an email, if you prefer).  It's always a pleasant surprise hearing from our silent readers. :)

Domestic Discipline Without A Committed Relationship - We offer our thoughts and opinions on living the domestic discipline lifestyle without a romantic connection between the two individuals involved.  How do you feel about this type of situation?

Saturday Stories: "Six Months In, Jack and Meredith Are Doing Well" - A past Saturday Stories writer returns (for a third time!) to share the progress that her and her husband have experienced in the domestic discipline lifestyle.  From the sound of it, things are going well!  Catch up with Meredith in her latest Saturday Stories article.

  • The latest entity of Learning Domestic Discipline is just a couple of weeks from launching!  We've been working hard on it, and we can't wait for it to go live on the website.  We're doing everything we can to launch it before December 1st, so keep an eye out for the latest addition to the site - the LDD Directory!
  • It's about time for a new LDD eBook, don't you think?  Details coming soon...  :)
  This concludes another week at Learning Domestic Discipline.  Thank you all, once again, for taking the time out of your lives to pay our little website a visit every now and again.  We appreciate both our vocal and silent readers so very much.  Onward we go into next week!  See you there, friends. :)

Weekly Recap: November 4th - 10th


  A new spanking podcast headlines this week's recap of the latest Learning Domestic Discipline content.  Not only do we have a new spanking podcast available for readers/listeners, but we also shared a lot of personal information/experiences in the Mailbag Monday and Five Things Friday posts.  It was a fun week!

If you happened to miss anything, here's an overview of the latest LDD happenings.


Mailbag Monday: Week 27 - We get personal this week!  We answered three questions that asked if a punishment has ever gone wrong for us (and how we handled it if it did), whether or not I (Clint) have been turned on when spanking my wife, and what some of our favorite things to watch on TV are.  You'll learn a lot about us in this latest edition of Mailbag Monday.

Introducing the Structured Spankings Podcast - A new podcast is available and it has already been a very popular one!  In our 6th podcast, Chels and I discuss beginner, intermediate, and advanced level spankings as well as the importance of warm up spankings.  It's an interesting and important podcast, and like always, it's completely free to download.  You can download the new podcast right here.  Enjoy!

Five Things Friday: The November Kickoff Edition - In this week's Five Things Friday post Chelsea talks about a controversial new book that supports domestic discipline concepts, she shares our incredible recent concert experience, and she shares one of the most thought-provoking articles we've read in quite some time.  Trust me, you don't want to miss that article.

  • Our newsletter software had a little glitch this month.  Some individuals on the mailing list did not receive November's newsletter.  We've corrected the issue and we believe we've gotten the November newsletter out to everyone, however if you did not receive your copy, please contact us and we'll send it to you as quickly as possible.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
  • As Chels touched on in her Five Things post, we're inviting readers to stop by the LDD blog for a rare Tuesday post to celebrate LOL Day 2013 with us!  What is LOL Day?  Bonnie at My Bottom Smarts, the creator of LOL Day, explains it so much better than we can.
That'll do it for another week here at LDD!  Thank you so much for reading.  We have a lot of new content scheduled over the next several days, so make sure to visit often throughout the upcoming week to see what's new!  We'll see you then. :)
