Spanking Week 2010

Welcome to Spanking Week 2010!

I've been thinking about how I'm going to organize my postings. Especially when I get really into thinking about something, there's a lot more than I can say in one post. (Heck, I am definitely a spanko – there's more than I could say in a year of postings, let alone a week!) So I'm going to use a themed week sort of system and see how it goes.

Obviously this week's theme is Spanking; next week I'm going to focus on the G-Spot. If you have any topics you'd like to see me cover, lemme know in the comments and I'll see what I can do :-)

In my mind, for all intents and purposes, there are three kinds of spankings: pleasure spankings, punishment spankings, and punishment spankings you'd give a child. I'm not going into the third option here; for anyone interested in the politics of it I'll put a link in at the bottom.

Pleasure spankings are just that – pleasurable. All sorts of people can enjoy them, whether you're into any sort of kinky stuff or not. I read recently that as many as 40% of Americans embrace spanking in some shape or form... I'm guessing that this spans the scale of what qualifies as spanking, from the occasional little “love tap” to the rear to a hardcore domestic discipline or BDSM type scenario. The ass is definitely an erogenous zone for many people, so the combined slaps and rubs (or one or the other) can often really work for you in getting your partner aroused and ready for more. I'll feature a how to spank later this week for pleasure spankings :-)

Punishment spankings aren't directly pleasurable in and of themselves, although they can certainly arouse pleasure or lead to a pleasurable outcome. This is where the waters get muddied! Usually these are seen when there is some sort of more formal arrangement, and both parties have agreed to the spanking. Even though I definitely understand how some people would think that this is abuse, the truth is, for many people it can be a very healing experience.

Take myself, for instance. (I didn't create this blog to play show and tell with my private life... most of my “myself, for instances” will be pretty generic to illustrate a point...) Everyone tends to have moments in their lives when they feel like they're spiraling out of control, right? When I feel this way, a good spanking helps to set me back on the right track. It can be cathartic... you feel the pain or other emotion that you're carrying around with you rise to the surface and get released. It works the same with tears, if you're spanked hard enough to cry. Afterward, when you feel utterly empty and surrendered and safe and calm, the spankee receives aftercare from the spanker – and although there are many ways to play this scenario out, it could possibly consist of rubbing some sort of lotion or salve into the bottom, being held and comforted, or even loving, devoted sex.

What about you? Have you incorporated spanking in a big or small way into your sexual activities? Let me know in the comments!

PS- This post kinda sucks.  Sorry about that... but I can't put up the rest until I have some sort of intro written, right?  I may end up rewriting it :-) Oh! And I found the picture here.
