Spanking Theatre

Spanking stories for the theatre between your ears


February 2017

Dear learned author, I like your writings. I want to know that if my girl enjoys spanking, can I extrapolate that she will also like anal sex in pursuit to get pleasure via pain ? Thanks.

No, you can’t extrapolate that, I’m afraid. You will have to ask her.

Consent is fundamental to kink. Now I’m not saying you should be signing a contract before you play, but you should always be talking to each other.

“Have you been a naughty girl?”

“You deserve a good hard spanking, don’t you?”

“Tell me how much you want my big stiff cock in your tight little ass.”

Asking her to affirm what happens next is hot, keeps you both on the same page, and prevents misunderstandings. After all, anal sex means different things to different people, from a finger in the bottom to a rough painful fucking. You need to be clear what your partner is happy to do.

And everyone should remember that just because your partner agreed to something once, it doesn’t mean they’ve consented to do it, evermore. A good dominant knows this, and respects this. That’s what makes them a good dom.



A spanking story

The schoolgirls wearily traipsed through time.

They’d begun in ancient Assyria, bright-eyed and fizzing with eagerness, gazing upward with wonder at the monumental winged bulls at the entrance to the British Museum. They are called Lamassu, their teacher explained, sixteen tons of alabaster, hewn almost three thousand years ago, and exquisitely sculpted into a fantastical creatures.

These strange beasts had been buried for millennia, as a succession of mighty empires had risen, fought and crumbled on the sands above them. Now a new empire had uncovered and claimed the statues, and its unimaginable modern magic had transported the immense monuments over land and sea to the imperial metropolis of London.

The girls continued meandering through history, passing the spooky sarcophagi and cryptic carvings of ancient Egypt. Onwards to stare at cases of the slightly more comprehensible domestic pottery of ancient Greece. Until finally the grey-skirted stream of girls had ebbed into Roman times, feet scuffing, heels dragging. Behind teacher’s back, yawns were being stifled, and there were outbreaks of sniggering and nudging when artefacts with willies were sighted.

Yet through the dozy fug of her torpor, something nearby caught Jenny’s eye. She stopped and squinted into the brightly lit case as her classmates milled around her. Inside was what looked like a thin leather strap, discoloured black and desiccated by age. Had the object been intact it would have been as long as her forearm, but instead it lay broken in 4 unequal lengths.

Curiosity piqued, her eyes scanned the caption card beside it.

Leather (likely goat hide)  ~140 BC.
Found: Tiburi (now Tivoli), central Italy, 1855.
“Believed to be a flogging whip, intended for the purification and fertility rites of the festival of Lupercalia. Celebrated annually, beginning on the Ides (the 13th) and climaxing on the 15th of February, these purgative rituals held such significance in the Roman calendar that the month of Februarius was named after them. Although Lupercalia was a fertility rite, scholars believe its proximity to the contemporary St Valentine’s Day (the 14th) is purely coincidental.”

Jenny quivered. Recently, she’d become a reluctant expert on the subject of flogging. Only yesterday she’d neglected to do her Latin homework, and been kept behind after school to finish it. School rules were absolutely clear. Any pupil who missed an assignment would complete her work sitting on a sore spanked bottom…

Wishing a happy Lupercalia to you all!

A Valentine’s Message

To You

Woah. Hi, I’m a huge fan. It’s to the point where my autocorrect knows your blog’s name. Anyway, story time: So I was just reading Ups And Downs again (it’s my favorite, well done!!) and well, long story short, I just had my first consecutive orgasms. So thank you very much!

I’m delighted to hear it.

I’ve always thought longform stories like Ups and Downs were the perfect medium for multiple orgasms. Long enough to progressively build the reader’s arousal, and punctuated by several exciting scenes, each of which might push her over the edge. And for those who do come in the middle of the story, there’s still plenty of words remaining, giving you the chance to chase another climax…

How Posts Spread in Social Networks


This is a post for new writers, creators of original content, and all those who’ve ever wondered about how ideas spread. I might even be able to teach you a bit about the science of social networks.

Recently, I’ve been playing with Reblog Graphs – a feature you can enable through Tumblr Labs. These graphs show how posts spread, starting with the original post (shown in orange). Each line is a reblog, so each blue dot is a Tumblr that has reblogged the original post.

The image above shows two very different shapes of network, despite having a roughly similar number of shares. One is an image post (a spanking illustration), and one is a text post (a spanking story).

Can you tell which of the two networks is the story?

Try having a guess now.

In network A, the original post doesn’t spread far, the vast majority of sharing is done directly from the original poster. The longest sharing chain is 3 deep, (visible at the 6 o’clock position) where Alice shares the original post, Bob reblogs Alice’s post, and then Carol shares Bob’s post.

In network B, we can see a quite different propagation taking place. This time the original post is the orange node at the top. What’s interesting here is even though fewer people share directly from the original poster, a chain of sharing develops, introducing the post to small numbers of new individuals at each hop. Eventually, the chain reaches 10 shares deep,

So, can you tell which network depicts the spread of the story?

The answer is… network A is the story, network B is the image.

It might surprise you, but network A is actually the reblog graph for my most popular story, Punishment Panties. It hasn’t been shared widely at all, but does seem to have a host of dedicated fans (thanks folks!)

Whereas network B, which has been shared more widely, is a vintage spanking illustration, which I didn’t create, but shared from my blog.

To use the social network analysis terminology, network B has a low structural cohesion, as the removal of a few key members would disconnect the group. Network A has a much higher cohesion, as the majority of individuals share a central connection in common (in this case, me). But because the individuals of Network B are less likely to know each other, the image post will tend to spread further afield.

Why We Share

Whilst researching this post I actually looked at the reblog graphs for all my stories, and it was intriguing to discover they all looked like network A. Which got me thinking: what explains this particular pattern of propagation?

One theory of mine is that whenever a reader sees a post, they tend to spend a moment or two appreciating it, and then decide whether they’ll share it or not. When the post in question is an image, they can come to a conclusion quickly, hitting the reblog button before moving on to look at something else. But if the post is several thousand words long, and may take over 10 minutes to read, the reader has no idea if this new post is any good. Instead, they might “like” it, or bookmark it, so they can return to it later.

Even when they do eventually read it, readers seem less inclined to share stories. This might be because the written word elicits a much more personal response than an image. Even if we’ve enjoyed it, we might think others won’t necessarily appreciate it. So we keep our new discovery to ourselves. Fundamentally, we share posts we think others might like, because that reflects well on us. After all, we like to consider ourselves as discerning consumers, with impeccable taste.

Why You Should Write Anyway

I’ve written this post as I think the graphs reveal an important lesson for new writers: stories don’t go viral.

Despite all the weeks you spent lovingly crafting that story, it is very unlikely to spread contagiously across the net. But the lack of interest you see is not a reflection on the quality of your work, rather it’s a reflection of the deeply personal nature of reading. Especially when it comes to subjects as sensitive as kink and sexuality. 

So, if you’re a writer – keep writing. Do not be discouraged. Write because you have stories to tell. Don’t rate the worth of what you create by the number of times it is read, but by the pride you feel when you read back your own words. No matter how good your story is, it is reliant on the mysterious forces of serendipity to spread by itself.

Or course, it helps if you can find someone with a big audience to promote your work. But such individuals tend to have big audiences precisely because they’re very selective about who they endorse. Their influence comes from being very discerning curators, who only recommend content of the very highest quality. 

In time, you will accumulate your own audience – but be aware, it is a slow process. If you do want an audience, you’ll need to reach out and talk to others, show gratitude to those who champion you, and be prepared to put your work forward in competitions and showcases. However uncomfortable that might feel.

You might also consider spreading your work on multiple channels. I’ve put some of my writing on a WordPress blog, and posted several on Medium. And I tweet about sexual, erotic and political matters on Twitter too. It never hurts to give your readers more opportunities to stumble across you.

But fundamentally, you should write
because you need to write. Because you feel that almost primal
urge to transcribe the imagery floating in your imagination into written words. Write because you’re desperate to make what you’ve seen permanent before
it fades forever.

Write because you enjoy giving gifts – visions that
will enter the lexicons of your readers’ imaginations, and thrill them…


spanking a very specific area …

The caption translates as “In fact, he masturbated her”, suggesting she found her humiliating punishment actually rather pleasurable. As those who’ve ever experienced a skillfully delivered spanking on their slit and bottom hole will readily appreciate.

Does anyone know the artist, or the provenience of this drawing? Please drop me a message or repost this with the answer if you do.

I wonder if it was part of a series, and who are the characters? Is she a naughty schoolgirl, or are they roleplaying lovers? What did the young lady do to earn such intimate punishment? Is she spanked in other positions? And what happened when the slaps finally stopped?

Stylistically it looks like an illustration from, or homage to, the elegantly raunchy French spanking fiction that was popular during the first 40 years of the 20th century. If you’ve read my posts from Pierre Louys’ Young Girls’ Handbook, you’ll know French erotic writing can be very witty, and very filthy indeed…

Glimpse is so original, so clever, so evocative, so beyond anything that I could write myself, that I barely know how to make a rational comment.

If my stories ever end up published in a book, I’d love to put this wonderful comment on the back cover.

Glimpse is still one of my favourite stories, a ghost story in the Gothic tradition, pitch black but darkly beautiful. And if you haven’t yet read it, I hope one day, you will…

Me and my girlfriend have only been together for a few weeks and we’re already doing sexual things. Is this common in relationships? Especially since the both of us are teens.

Typically, the older you are, the less time it takes for a relationship to become sexual. That’s because sexual activity requires establishing comfort with your partner. The more experience you have, the easier comfort comes, even the partners have just met. This is why some folks have one-night stands, or begin sleeping with each other after only a few dates.

But if you’re younger and less experienced, I’d recommend taking your time. Escalate slowly and enjoy the journey. If, years from now, you can both look back on your early sexual experiences with deep fondness rather than regret, you’ll have helped establish a healthy attitude to sexual enjoyment.

And since you’re here, I assume some spanking will be involved. Start gently and playfully. And most important of all, laugh and have great fun…
