Just a fashion statement? Kink versus obsession in the real world
Anyway, to the topic at hand; let's slap this baby and start her up (quote courtesy of "Mangled and Mixed Metaphors for Beginners").
There is a general view amongst our little community that spanking is going mainstream; it's becoming more generally accepted by society as a whole, and references to it are blossoming in popular culture. As an offshoot of this there seems to be an orchard of minor celebrities falling over themselves to claim an interest in being spanked.
Let's face it; spanking is an easy kink to claim. There's no heavy equipment, no inconvenient rope burns and, unless you wear exceedingly skimpy clothes, no markings that the public can check out to authenticate a session has been endured.
Anyone can say they like to be spanked (and, so far as I can see, that is generally the claim - I haven't come across a whole host of stars declaring that they like to spank); it's not practically possible to prove this is a lie. Well, I suppose that you could accost one of them in public, and, throwing them over your knee, administer a firm paddling. Of course, failure to writhe with pleasure wouldn't really mean that they weren't a spanko.
I don't suggest that you try this out. Although I would like to see it.
I am a self-confessed spanko. My interest in spanking is not a casual one. I think of spanking multiple times each day. I fantasise about spanking. I anticipate spanking, with a quite pathological eagerness.
I am a heterosexual male. The world of porn was created for me. However the only porn that arouses me on a regular basis is spanking based. In fact it could be that I'm a bit of a prude. I certainly shy away from spanking sites that link TTWD with sexual acts, despite this being a commonplace in my own bedroom.
Of course, I could just be massively fucked up. Others have suggested as much. Not doctors, or anything. Just casual acquaintances.
At this point it's probably fair to note that I do have a somewhat obsessive personality; I do have a history of huge passions, of pursuing an interest far beyond what many might consider a reasonable length. Shit. That makes me sound like a stalker. It's okay though; I don't attach to people.
Spanking is an obsession for me.
If you go the length of reading these blog things, I guess it probably is to you too.
Spanking is, at this point in time, integral to my existence. It informs how I look at the World. It shapes my opinions and desires.
Having said all of that, I know that there are readers out there who have a far more dedicated relationship with spanking than I do. Some of you live a spanking lifestyle.
I've put a new poll up; most of you will ignore it, but, for those who are willing to join in, I'd love to know how deep your interest in spanking is.
All the best
