A spanking good time!

Spank me! Do I have your attention? Are you into spanking? And from what end? Would you rather give or receive? Something Jim Linderman said in a recent post on his Vintage Sleaze blog intrigued me.
"Nothing drives traffic to my site more than some poor woman being slapped. I really don't know why..."
What is it about spanking that drives so much traffic? Sure, I've enjoyed the odd pic or two of a woman bent over, her knickers down, in the midst of having her bottom warmed by a few licks. And once or twice I've even been lucky enough to have played a part in such scenes. However, I avoid the extremes. I'm turned off by the photos where the marks are bloody welts, and when I play, I do it for sensation and arousal, not for pain. For me, such games have always served as a warm up rather than the main event.

Perhaps I haven't found the right partner for that sort of thing. There's a certain amount of desire and commitment required to cross that fine line between pleasure and pain. I can understand why it so often manifests in the form of a lifestyle. But like so many pleasures I can take it or leave it as the mood strikes me. There's little about sex, or kink that doesn't attract or arouse me, but none of it is essential to my getting off.

What about you? Does spanking play a part in your intimacy? How necessary is it to your own pleasure?


  1. It plays a part. It's not the be-all and end-all for me, but impact play is another facet of sensation play for me. As a solo player there's a limit as to how far I can take impact play though.


  2. I'm still waiting to find out what all the fuss is about :) - I tried it once (giving, not receiving) but had to abandon it for fear that the loud slaps would disturb fellow hotel guests - I am a considerate guy. But I do dream of being over Mrs. C's knees one day :)
