I have been spanked in public for the first time a few months ago actually. We were in the mall in Maryland someplace. I was in a very cheeky mood for some reason or another. When he had had enough, smack dab in the middle of the mall just about, he put his foot up on a bench, pulled me over his knee and gave me a half dozen or so hard whacks with his open hand, and, yes, over clothes since we were in public. I didn't know how many stopped and watched, but there were quite a few.
When he was done, I stood up, regained my composure, kissed him smack dab on the lip and told him thank you for setting me straight. Then we picked up our things and resumed our walk about the mall. He said that a few people either winked at him or gave him the thumbs-ups along our walk in the mall. When we got outside I looked him in the face and asked, "so, when do I get to do that to you, Sweetie?" He laughed, asked me if it really was something I wanted to do to him, then I laughed and said, "Next town, next mall, your ass is so mine, Mister." Then he got the biggest grin on his face as he looked into my eyes and simply stated, "It will be as you wish, Ma'am." mmmmmm
