Spanking in Mainstream Romance!

I've been fascinated with spanking ever since I started reading historical romance books as a teenager. I read the spanking scene in Defy Not the Heart by Johanna Lindsey so many times, the book practically fell open to that page!

My favorite spanking scene from a mainstream romance, however, is, without a doubt, from Gypsy Lord by Kat Martin. In the story, the heroine has embarrassed the hero in front of his clan, and knows that the only way he will save face with his people is if he punishes her, so she convinces him that he must give her a spanking. Which he does, in front of everyone! Talk about hot! Whew!!!

Now, whenever I pick up a mainstream romance, I always hope that the handsome hero will put the feisty heroine over his knee for a good, sound spanking! In fact, I'm currently reading a book where the heroine definitely deserves one!

If you want a list of mainstream novels, romance and otherwise, with spanking in them, this
Spanking Bibliography put out by CF Publications is the most comprehensive I've found!

Review of Our Yummy New Wood Paddle!

Though we used the wood paddle we won as a door prize at the spanking party that night in our suite, it was late and we were tired, so it was just a quickie spanking, so I figured I'd wait to give you my thoughts on it until we had used it more fully, which we did this weekend! And wow, is it yummy!

It's made of very smooth, lightweight wood that's about 1/2 inch thick, and at first glance, it looks like it's going to be a very "thuddy" paddle, but it's not. Instead, it's surprisingly "stingy," and feels a lot like the CB paddle, which next to the London Tanner Boudoir Paddle, is my favorite! So yes, I like this new paddle very much! *grin*

Before I get into the actual spanking, I should tell you a little bit about how spanking plays into our lifestyle. My hubby and I don't practice domestic discipline, so all of our spankings are the sensual kind, but I do enjoy when he spanks me for being "naughty." I, however, didn't even know I'd done anything "naughty," until I was stretched out over my hubby's lap on the bed, getting a warm-up with his hand, when he announced that he was going to spank me for being such a bad girl while we were on vacation down in Orlando the weekend before!

Giving him a pout over my shoulder, I protested that I hadn't done anything "naughty." He chuckled and told me that I had. Then, picking up our new wood paddle, he began to make a list of all the "naughty" things I was responsible for (all of which were totally made up, of course, like the slow service at the hotel restaurant in Tampa, the traffic we got stuck in, and the long lines at Disney, just to name a few!) And after each infraction, he spanked me with our new wood paddle! Of course, I squirmed and squealed and kicked like crazy, even though I absolutely loved every minute of the spanking! Then again, how could I not love it, especially when my hubby loves to rub my bottom in between! *sigh*

More on the Spanking Party!

Well, as I said, we combined the spanking party with a vacation at Disney World, so we actually stayed at Disney and only attended the party in the evenings, but we had a great time!

We arrived at the hotel in Tampa a little later than we would have liked to on Friday evening because there was so much traffic, so by the time we got there, everyone was already out by the pool. Of course, that only made me more nervous! But as it turned out, finding the people we already knew through the spanking forums I belong to was easier than I thought it would be, and soon we were all laughing and talking like old friends. After awhile, we moved into the hotel restaurant, where we spent the next several hours getting to know everyone better, which was really enjoyable!

There was a spanking pizza party that evening at midnight, but since we had to drive back up to Disney and a full day at the park the next day, we didn't stay for it, though I heard it was a lot of fun!

However, we did stay at the hotel in Tampa the next night! After dinner, during which we got to meet some more really fun people, there was a spanking trivia game. Both tops and bottoms played, though the tops that were playing had a bottom with them that took the spanking if they answered the questions wrong! And as hard as the questions (which were all spanking-related in some way) were, I'm glad that my hubby and I decided to simply watch, because I would have been on the receiving end of the straps and paddles that were being used!

Afterward, they gave out not only a prize to the winner of the trivia game, but also door prizes as well. We won this yummy wood paddle, which we made good use of when we went up to our suite that night! *grin*

A Disney Vacation Complete with Spanking!

My hubby and I just got back from Disney World (my favorite place to go on vacation, by the way!) where we not only had lots of fun going on rides and doing all the other magical stuff Disney has to offer, but also attending our first spanking party! And before you ask, no, it wasn't held at Disney, but at a lovely hotel in nearby Tampa. *grin*

Being that it was the first time we'd ever gone to a spanking party, I admit that I was a little nervous. In fact, I almost bailed out! I'm glad that I didn't, though, because we had a really good time. Because I've talked with some of the other people that were there through email, Yahoo IM, and on the spanking forums I frequent, we felt like we already knew them before we even got there, so being new to the group wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. Everyone gave us a very warm welcome! And though my hubby didn't spank me in public, we did make good use of the yummy wood paddle that we won as a door prize as soon as we went up to our suite on the second night! *grin*

After our vacation, I got right back to work on my current novella, the second book in The Cutler Brothers Series, called Madoc. (Cade, Book One in the Series is currently online at
Spanking Romance.)

This is my first post on my new blog, and I'll be updating it frequently, so be sure to check back often!
