Ah, great topic, and surprisingly in the public domain.
I am also surprised at the number of people who responded positively to it. Now, for my two or three cents.
I get into all aspects of the lifestyle of inflicting and be inflicted upon. I agree with all those who said it is very common among women to like to be spanked to some degree or another(and by the way, spanking done the right way does not have to be painful, it can be very sensual without pain.) I also agree with those who said there is nothing more seductive than a truly dominant man, and nothing harder to find. Lots of forced dominance, and worse yet, domineering men(there is a big difference) but the truly dominant are well.....elite....
I happen to like leather, I like the smell of it, the feel of it, and the way it looks whether it is on a man or in that man's hand. There are advantages, however, to hand spanking. The fact that you and your partner can feel the skin to skin contact. The inflictor knows exactly how hard he is hitting, and feels the sting to his own hand. (unless he has on leather gloves....purrrrr)
Why do some people feel spanking is erotic? For as many reasons as there are people who feel spanking is erotic. Myself? I really enjoy the feel of a warm bottom. The heat that is generated to the area when it is built up is extremely erotic, whether I am giving it or getting it. Think heat as in friction........you get the idea.
I go a little further than just spanking for the most part, being a sexual masochist at heart. I also enjoy the whole process, scene, ambiance, heady power exchange and for sure the right partner.
I am of the opinion that everybody has a dark sexual side, some let go and really explore and enjoy it. Those are the ones who have passion in their lives. The ones who will jump in and really experience what life has to offer, sexually or otherwise. Why hide your true sexual self behind what society thinks is appropriate for you? I think everyone should at least explore that dark side, and if it freaks you out, then go back to hohum sex. But that's just the opinion of a kinky sex kitten.
Hail Satan! Hail Truly Dominant Men!
