Round Table Discussion – Spanking Beginnings & Fantasies Come True

roundtable_first_week_2-300x210

I am so excited to be participating in a new feature over on the Spanking Romance Review Blog! Several of us have started an ongoing Round Table Discussion pertaining to hot button issues of the spanking community! Every two weeks we will discuss a new topic that is near and dear to the spanking community’s heart. After you read this blog head on over to SRR’s blog to see our debut post and find the links to the other participant’s responses!

This week’s discussion is led by yours truly! I’ve always been fascinated by how others discovered their interest in spanking & how they have explored it. So on that note here is this week’s discussion questions:

  1.  When did you first know you were interested in spanking, and the surrounding ideas that come with it?
  2. When did you finally cross over from fantasies to bringing it into real life? (Or has that yet to happen?)

I’ve been a spanko I think my entire life. From Ken spanking Barbie or Barbie spanking Barbie it’s always been there. I remember looking up spanking in the dictionary over and over and in every new dictionary I could find. I tried to incorporate spanking with a few of my high school boyfriends, but I really don’t think they thought I was being serious. I did have one spanking experience with my long time high school boyfriend. We were just joking around and it turned into so much more. I literally went weak in the knees when he pulled his belt out of its loop’s and made me bend over for a spanking. I had never been so turned on in my life. Sadly that relationship was over, but it left a burning desire in my mind (and fantasies!)

I met my husband a couple years later. We had a whirlwind romance and were married within only two months (with three kids between us.) There was a lot of playful spanking, but with so many kids under five we were just never really able to fully develop this kink. Throughout the years after we had a fight I would fantasize about him taking me over his knee and spanking me soundly then placing me in the corner. I didn’t tell him during those years about the desire because I was terrified about giving up that kind of control. We were also both pretty staunchly feminist, so I kept those fantasies to myself.

At about the five year mark I started re-awakening sexually. The spanking play began again and it was great! One day as I perused the web for spanking stories and videos I stumbled across a CDD web page. Let me tell you it resonated from the top of my head to the tip of my toes. It was a huge light bulb moment! I remembered seeing Bethany’s community (before she created Blushing Books.) They had a forum where couples practiced DD but it wasn’t clearly defined as DD is today. This CDD site was a few pages and it described to a T exactly what I wanted and needed! I could combine my sexual need for spanking with my goals for in marriage and our household. I was a hopeless slob, hormones got the best of me more times than not, and I wanted his dominance so very much. I have found that DD appeals to me because I like having a purpose for the spanking. I like adding it into daily life. It makes getting things done so much more appealing. I am ever the practical Capricorn!

It turned out I was too chicken to follow through with bringing DD up to him then. I tried, but backed down at the first look of incredulous. I didn’t even take the time to explain. It wasn’t for another four YEARS that I made my second (and final) attempt. I enjoyed the play, but I wanted the real thing. And I got it! Hubby reacted well to my second attempt. I explained way better this time! I even got my first discipline spanking that week. It’s funny that I forget what it was for now. I just remember how weird it was. It felt so scripted and like we were playing pretend. He had me bend over the bed, lower my panties, and he spanked me a little bit with his hand and then used the ping pong paddle about 10 times. He kept asking if he was hurting me and if I was okay. I remember coming away feeling like I hadn’t been punished at all. He was so scared that he was going to bruise me or hurt me for real. It took him a little bit of time to get past that, but let me tell you he has gotten past it!!

Over the years DD has taken different forms. In the beginning I really wanted that DD fantasy that I had always read about in books. As time went on we realized that didn’t really work for us. It works better when we pick our goals or spankable offences and if I ask him for a spanking when I feel guilty or when I need it. He has become so much more confident and dominant. And boy is it HOT!! He has dominance in the bedroom honed to a science. YUM YUM YUM! We are very adventurous and in DD and out of DD have ventured to many other aspects aside from spanking. I’m not sure how to explain why spanking works so well when I am a spanko, but they do. This whole dynamic works well. There is a difference between punishment spankings and maintenance, stress relief, or play spankings. Sometimes it’s just the tone of the whole thing. Whatever it is it works for us.

Fantasy has become reality in many ways. I know that I have many more fantasies to come true in the future as well! That’s why I keep reading those smoking hot spanking romances! So spanking romance authors keep on writing and fueling those fantasies!!

How did you first discover you were interested in spanking? Have you experienced that moment where fantasy becomes reality? I would LOVE to hear your experiences as well!

Destiny’s Chance by Cara Bristol: Destiny’s Chance is a Fantasy at it’s Romantic Best!

Destiny's Chance

Destiny Grable can’t help that she’s fallen in love Chance Everett, her best friend‘s boyfriend, but she’s never, ever acted on her feelings — until she and Zoe are in a car accident, Zoe is killed, and Destiny is reincarnated in her body. She never wished for something like this to happen, but perhaps now she’ll be free to love Chance the way she always wanted to.

Chance might have had pursued Destiny, but he has a kinky side and she was a nice girl. But now she’s dead, and the accident has forced him to take in his ex-girlfriend. As soon as she recovers and moves out, he’ll get on with his life.

Can two star-crossed lovers ever find happiness

My Review:

After a freak accident leaves her best friend Dead, Destiny Grable survives. However, fate has intervened and Destiny finds herself reincarnated into her best friend Zoe’s body. Destiny has found a second chance at life, but not at all in a way that she could have ever predicted. One moment she’s driving in a car with her best friend and the next she’s waking up in the hospital with Zoe’s ex-boyfriend Chance taking care of her.  To make matters worse all of her old feelings for Chance are as strong as ever. Fighting between her desire for Chance and her loyalty to Zoe, Destiny is conflicted to say the least.

Zoe’s estranged boyfriend, Chance Everett, has committed himself to bringing Zoe home just long enough for her to get on her feet and then it will be time for both to move on once and for all. Chance and Destiny have been friends pushed together by Zoe, but Destiny couldn’t help but develop more than a little crush on Chance along the way. What Destiny doesn’t know is that Chance harbored a crushof his own. Chance can’t help noticing how much Zoe has changed. Her aloof nature seems to have disappeared into a woman filled with life that hums as she cooks gourmet meals, engages is compelling conversation, even her laugh has changed. Destiny is falling more in love with chance by day. The chemistry between them is inflamed by sharing a bed & the discovery of Zoe & Chance’s treasure trove of spanking implements. The tension; both sexual and the irresistible pull these characters have for one another all while trying to fight it is intoxicating. The sex & erotic spanking scenes are hot, hot, hot! Rooting for them through it all is Destiny’s empathic and clairvoyant sister, Laura, who recognizes Destiny immediately. She also recognizes true love when she sees it and is not going to let Destiny give up her chance at happiness.

The story and characters had a depth that held my interest from page one. I could not help, but feel connected to each one of them, including Destiny’s sister Laura.  In fact I connected so much with Laura that really hoping there will be a sequel in store for us featuring her as the lead character. Her story much be told! The mystical theme was fascinating. I am intrigued by the idea that true love can be so fated that one could be reincarnated into another’s body just to fulfill that destiny.  I really enjoyed how different this story is from author, Cara Bristol’s other work. It’s a nice contrast to the contemporary domestic discipline novels that the author has written in the past.  I, of course, am a big fan of both genres of spanking novels.

Destiny’s Chance is a fantasy at its romantic best. Are these star crossed lovers willing to take a chance and fulfill their destiny? You will have to read the book to find out and I highly recommend it!

About the Author:

cara-bristol-3

Cara Bristol didn’t start out to become a spanking fiction author. It sort of happened…okay, with five spanking titles under her belt, three under contract, maybe it didn’t just happen. Maybe she likes the naughtiness, the taboo thrill of writing about dominant, sexy men who like to spank their partners. Could be.

Cara (pronounced CAR uh) is a multi-published author whose Rod and Cane Society novels have become one of the most popular domestic discipline erotic romance series. Three books about a secret organization of men who discipline their wives and girlfriends have been released by Loose Id: Unexpected ConsequencesFalse Pretenses andBody Politics.  The fourth one, a short story called Disciplinary Measures, will be released by Loose Id on May 21. Disciplinary Measures is intended to be dessert for those who have read the Rod and Cane books, and an appetizer for those who haven’t. All Rod and Cane Society stories can be read as stand-alones. Each story focuses on one couple’s journey with domestic discipline.

More are planned. Cara’s other titles are Intimate SubmissionSecret DesiresA Scent of Longing and Reckless in Moonlight. The former two also contain spanking. Ms. Bristol lives in the Midwest part of the United States with her husband. When she’s not writing, she enjoys traveling and reading.

She loves to hear from readers. Her email is carabristol50@yahoo.com, For the latest update, follow her on Twitter or like her Facebook page.

The Evolution of Emma Adler by Serafine Laveaux

 

detail_2310_Evolution_of_Emma_DetailA tale of sexual awakening and comeuppance. This is not your typical spanking novel. The backdrop of Depression Era Texas is rich and full of detail. I felt transported to a time of desperation, a time where so many felt desolate yet longed for more than what life had dealt them. The language absolutely thrilled me because it was spot on for the era. This is a coming of age story about Emma who begins as the target of prejudice common of the era, the victim of slurs against her heritage, and the poverty her family finds themselves in. Doris de Vris likes to pretend to be Emma’s friend. However, everything Doris does comes with an ulterior motive. Emma has resigned to just take it partly believing that she deserves it and partly because to her it’s all worth it for a nickel malt every now and then. An unexpected tryst between the two ensues after discovering Mr. de Vris’ secret stash of photos. Emma’s world has been blown wide open sexually while at the same time she has to overcome Doris turning on her viciously. Her self-discovery continues after an unsavory encounter of dark discipline from Doris’ father. Instead of breaking her spirit Emma finds a personal power within her that had never existed before. She hatches a plan to get revenge on Doris and her father. Her new-found inner voice fuels her on. I enjoyed Emma’s journey through a sweet romance and unlikely friendship that ultimately aides in her perfect revenge.

While this book contains the darker element of discipline I think what makes it so hot is Emma’s developing sense of self and strength that comes out of it. She doesn’t allow herself to be victimized. She takes that power and uses it to empower herself. The discipline is harsh, but hot. The story line is engrossing and exciting. The back story is rich and the characters are incredibly entertaining. In the end this novel goes down as one of my all-time favorites. I would give it five stars in every category. I can’t wait to read The Hickory Switch and find out what happens next.
