Moodiness

Have you ever noticed that sometimes in spanking stories the heroine gets spanked for “attitude”, “moodiness” or generally being less than pleasant rather than a specific infraction? In some stories, it’s not something I like. Sometimes I do like it, and I’m not sure if that’s more to do with the story itself or my […]

Punishment, punishment and cuddles, or punishment and sex? A poll.

I thought we’d do a little something different this week. What do you all prefer? When you’re reading spanking stories with a punishment aspect (we’re not talking the happy fun spanky funishments right now) what do you prefer to read about? Do you like punishments with no sort of after care? She gets her bottom […]

Paddle Bruises

After my most recent serious spanking, during a conversation with a person who doesn’t have a whole lot of experience with spanking, I realized that there are certain things about the way that spankings impact (pun totally intended) the flesh, that people who haven’t experienced it might not realize. So there’s the obvious – a […]

Blushing Conference and RT Convention 2018

We’ve had our Blushing Books conference now – my classes went well, despite some last minute mishaps like the case of the disappearing (read: improperly saved) presentation slides. Whew! The signing was fabulous – I ran out of books (I had 30 copies of Bianka’s Baby) in only 22 minutes! And that was with signing […]

Burlesque and Floggers

So for those who don’t know, I perform at various events doing some combination of kink and sensuality. Sometimes it’s more kinky theater type stuff, like Organ Grinder’s Ball – sometimes it’s more straight up acting and getting spanked, like the movies I did with Spanking Epics – this Saturday I’m trying something a little […]

Tax season is over!

For those of you who don’t know – I’m an accountant when I’m not writing or working on this website. And tax season is – in case you weren’t sure – pretty brutal. So I am celebrating! (With dark chocolate.) I still have taxes to do, of course – not everyone gets all their paperwork […]
