Brand Spanking New

As you may have noticed from my kind colleagues’ posts, I have a new collection out this week, Love on a Spoon. The stories really run the gamut from sweet encounters to sassy wild ones. There are hetero stories, one M/M, one F/F story and one cross-dressing story.

I like variety 😉

The very first spanking story I wrote was for a British collection Six of the Best which is a typical term for getting spanked in school. Most Americans tend to be horrified by even the idea of school spankings, but there’s a long tradition in Britain that has left a fondness for the practice — at least among those who admit it. Even James Bond!

What can I say? It’s been a consistent seller since publication. Even most people who consider themselves fairly vanilla and have never had an interest in exploring kink, probably have had a little spanking action. It’s safe, playful and just a wee bit naughty.

Here’s the story:

Simon had worked for Dr. Kettering for six months and he still couldn’t quite figure her out. It wasn’t that she was cold or withdrawn; quite the opposite, in fact. She was also gorgeous, tall with curly auburn hair and striking green eyes. Every move had grace and poise, even if she was a trifle distant. Safely at home, he had fantasies of her exposing a vulnerability to him. But he couldn’t have been more surprised on that rainy Friday afternoon when she asked, “Can I share a secret with you, Simon?” because her fantasy was also his.

By CMK's book!

Because their intimacy is new, there’s a lot of anxiety, hesitation and tender exploration working up to the first spanking session. Longing is such a great spur to narrative. You want people who yearn for something to get it — but not yet. Simon moons over his boss but he steps up to take command when she asks him to do so. They both respond to the hidden facets of their selves: the in-charge professional who wants someone else to take the reins for a while and the dutiful employee who allows his tentative power to play a little.

It’s all about building trust and communicating clearly — and ritual. Spanking is especially about ritual and role playing. Find your boundaries and explore.

‘Text Play’ has a little spanking too, thought the focus there is more on the developing D/s relationship —  spanking is only part of it. And then there’s ‘Twelve Drummers Drumming’ — does it count as spanking if it’s drumsticks? ‘Tying Up Loose Ends’ also has some interesting play, but as the name suggests, it’s about being tied up.

Have some fun and explore. I think you’ll find something to like — even if it’s only a fictional adventure. They are always the safest kind. How much are you willing to admit to here?

You can get Love on a Spoon in the Lady Smut shop along with some other fine stories from the crew. And don’t forget to follow us — we wouldn’t want to have to spank you for being a bad reader!

    I think vanilla spanks are called love taps. Don’t want to appear TOO eager for them 😉

    Getting drummed on my backside seems like it would genuinely hurt, but I guess you never know until you try . . . 🙂

      Pain isn’t a drawback to everyone. 😉

        Oh, I know. There’s definitely the *good* kind of pain, but drumsticks seem so hard and . . . unforgiving. I guess that’s the point!

      It was an alternative cover image that didn’t get used for MAKE ME BEG FOR IT. Based on a vintage postcard.
