Spanking stories for the theatre between your ears

December 2014

New story posted!

The new Christmas story, Sandalwood and Ginger is now posted! So I hope you’ll settle back, make yourself comfortable, and let your imagination whisk you away…

What happens when naughty girls read about spankings?

image

I love the symbolism in this image, a self-spanking administered beside a treasure chest, her secret repository of fantasies, which she dips into when she plays. Her eyes are closed, imagining, her hand over her mouth, stifling a giggle – or something more intense?

So what do naughty girls imagine when reading about spankings?

Here are the best collected together: updated to include the most recent stories. An anthology of readers’ confessions, grouped by the story that inspired them.

Inspired by Inevitable

  • Inevitably – “I don’t know where to begin or what to describe first. How wet it has made me. How badly I want to be in that room!”

Inspired by Ups and Downs

  • Limbo – “I imagine him inspecting me, the thrill of being so intimately scrutinized by such a meticulous mind.”

What gift should you give a spanko for Christmas?

I quite like the simplicity of the titular gift in last year’s story.

But what’s the best gift you’ve bought or received?

Or what would you love to unwrap the most?

What the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done at Christmas?

My next story is now well underway!

I don’t think it’s giving too much away to reveal that at some point in the new story, one of the characters asks another:

“What the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done at Christmas?”

How would you answer that?

Have you ever done something really naughty at Christmas?

Something that might deserve a good hard spanking perhaps?

Maybe you did get spanked for it. Or maybe you didn’t, but you’ve always felt rather guilty about not receiving your rightful punishment.

So whilst I finish the new story, I’ll turn the floor over to you, the readers, so you can share your confessions of festive misbehaviour.

You can either:

  • reply to this post with your confession
  • reblog this post and add your recollection
  • send your story via ask (if it’s short)
  • or write about your experience via submit (if it’s longer)

Or, if you’d prefer to keep your naughtiness secret, you can always mentally relive the experience, whilst you give yourself the warm bottom you deserve

I’d like to read a holiday story involving a tradition of getting spanked rather than kissed under the mistletoe.

I’m not one for traditions. I prefer my characters to break conventions rather than follow them!

So I’m currently writing a story set within a Christmas party, but there isn’t a sprig of mistletoe in sight. Another plant does feature. And it’s turning into a very hot tale indeed.

So thank you very much to everybody who’s contributed suggestions to this year’s festive story. And to one lady in particular for suggesting the setting and providing some background. She knows who she is. 

The new story should be finished in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, if you missed last year’s story, now’s the perfect time to catch up, don’t you think?

Erotic Thoughtcrimes

Sadly, the following piece is not a work of fiction.

Did you know it is now illegal to broadcast spanking scenes in the UK?

Even if you do live in the UK, I wouldn’t blame you if this came as a surprise, a) because it sounds so ludicrous, and b) it’s received virtually no media attention. After all, bdsm porn doesn’t belong on the evening news, that filth is just for lonely perverts, right?

Yet as of December 1st 2014, content that can’t lawfully be distributed on a DVD can no longer lawfully be distributed on a video on demand service operated from the UK either. The rules for what you can publish on an adult DVD (called R18) are absurdly strict and archaic, which is why a lot of kink material is distributed by video on demand.

The new regulations not only remove this distinction, but also add an absurdly broad category of sexual activities that it is now illegal to depict, including spanking and caning, watersports, squirting, fisting, penetration with extremely large dildos, facesitting, breathplay, humiliation and role playing where someone pretends to be underage.

As far as I can tell, this isn’t the result of any new laws (Acts of Parliament), just new regulations drawn up by a quasi-governmental organisation that ominously calls itself The Authority for Television On Demand (ATVOD). Which is a fittingly Kafkaesque name, because this is all about authority. Namely, a bunch of unelected autocrats deciding on whether your personal sexual interests are deviant…

The road to hell is, of course, paved with good intentions, and here’s what ATVOD chair Ruth Evans had to say about the new rules:

“This is particularly likely to affect pornographic videos that feature violence, coercion or abusive scenarios such as incest.”

Justifying her organisation’s edict with the ickiest possible examples is a shabby rhetorical trick, given it’s already illegal to film abuse or incest between blood relations. Come on Ruth, have you forgotten film is make-believe? The ancient Greeks were putting on plays full of incest two and half thousand years ago. Their culture seemed to survive the depravity.

Yet under the cover of protecting public decency and sensitive minds, these regulations now consider spanking and caning to be acts of sexual violence. If you contravene these regulations and produce a spanking video in the UK, you’ll be deemed to breaking UK broadcasting law and face prosecution. Those convicted will face ruinous fines.

The Ministry of Public Decency

At this point, you may be asking why video on demand needs to be regulated anyway. Spanking is not illegal between consenting adults. So what’s so menacing about filming it and putting it online? If someone was to strap on a GoPro and film themselves doing something illegal, like a sexual assault on a stranger, it would be illegal to put evidence of that crime online, illegal to possess it, and the police would rightly be investigating. So why does a government office need to vet what we watch? Why is the broadcast of perfectly legal activities effectively being criminalised?

It’s ironic that the current UK government is predominantly Conservative, a party that claims at every opportunity that it wants to slash red-tape and reduce bureaucracy. But like most Westminster politicians they’re two-faced, they value authority more than liberty. Hence they’re happy to stand by as ATVOD embarks on a landgrab, a creeping expansion of regulation claiming jurisdiction over more and more areas of digital culture. And what better way to increase your governmental importance and budget that to appoint yourself as the Guardian of Public Morality?

What I find particularly disappointing is the UK used to be synonymous for free thinking. We gave sanctuary to revolutionary troublemakers like Rousseau and Marx, we’ve fought bloody wars against morally evil dictatorships, the culture we spread across the globe celebrates individual responsibility and personal liberty.

We’re the country of George Orwell, the man whose great parting gift was a book warning us what happens should we ever lose of freedom of thought. How ironic that the country of Orwell is now so eager to define whole new categories of Erotic Thoughtcrimes. Amongst the most regressive and repressive in the western world. All for our own good, of course.

Because this is what censors do, it is their raison d’être, knives cut bread, razors cut hair, and censors cut self-expression. But it’s for your own good, you know. Regulation motivated by prudish moralising. Legislators like to use laws to “send messages” – and here the message to us all is: your kinks are unacceptably deviant.

Let’s get this straight, it’s fine for movies to depict someone being shot in the head, or being raped, or tortured to death, but not ok to show someone being spanked. This is just barmy. Or as Lucy Plummer wrote: “IT’S JUST SMACKING AN ARSE”.

I’m sure TV like Game of Thrones or films with kinky scenes like Secretary or A Dangerous Method will still be made and broadcast, because their distributors have good lawyers, and they’re mainstream enough to earn conventional BBFC classifications. So what this is really going to effect are the small-scale porn producers who can’t afford legal battles, and all the laudable ethical porn startups we should be encouraging rather than criminalising.

Or, as the folks at Restrained Elegance eloquently put it:

“It has just become illegal to provide material which does not fall within the ‘R18’ guidelines- a patchwork of outdated, arbitrary, misogynistic and paternalistic crap whose attitudes are held over from the Victorian era.”

I believe sexual self-expression between consenting adults is a basic human right. But sexuality is a very broad spectrum, that means there are going to be some particular kinks I personally might find bizarre – or downright icky. But that’s ok. As long as it’s consensual, no harm is done. If you’re an adult, pointing a camera at a legal activity and sharing it shouldn’t make it wrong.

So why does all this matter?

Over the past few months the insightful Myles Jackman, legal adviser for sexual rights group Backlash, has been warning of the consequences of the new regulations. He sums up the threat in two sentences:

“Pornography is the canary in the coalmine of free speech: it is the first freedom to die. If this assault on liberty is allowed to go unchallenged, other freedoms will fall as a consequence.”

The new laws makes me deeply uncomfortable, even though I’m a not pornographer. That’s not the point. I find it deeply disturbing to live in a country where self-appointed lawmakers consider enjoyable consensual activities (like spanking) to be some kind of deviant behaviour. And I reckon if you spend a moment to ponder it, you’ll be just as uncomfortable too.

 

First they’ll ban the moving images.

“To protect the children.”

Then the stills.

Then the words.

They won’t reach into your mind of course.

Because, by then, you’ll be censoring your own thoughts.
