Introduction: "A Fantastic Kind of Pain"

Just as I have a seemingly endless capacity to bare my ass and get it smacked soundly or make a squirming bottom hover on the edge of erotic oblivion with loud, ringing, stinging whack after whack, I don't think I'll ever get tired of reading stories about spanking. There was a time when I wasn't sure I could say that; after all, just how much is there to say about bending over and letting a firm hand connect with a pertly offered-up bottom? Or striking a pretty pair of buttcheeks so well the person beneath you moans in ecstatic agony? Well, as I've learned while editing this collection, there are an infinite number of ways to talk about the pleasures of getting spanked or spanking someone. While the actions may look alike, we all experience them differently and have different motives for indulging in this beloved kinky activity.

Me? I get off on just thinking about bending over for that special someone. Maybe I'm wearing panties, and only part of my bottom is visible. Maybe I'm not, and my spanker can see everything, including my wetness. I get wet at the mere idea of offering up my entire body to a lover to play with, tease, spank, and arouse. I've also had plenty of eager bottoms spread before me, offering asses that just begged to be spanked, whether they speak words to that effect or not. But for me, and for many others, spanking is about much more than just the physical. It's about what that sensation creates inside of us. Spanking breaks down our barriers in ways even sex sometimes doesn't; it stirs up emotions; it makes us whimper or cry, or be proud of just how much we can take. It's primal and powerful, not to mention incredibly popular. I was thrilled to see spanking make an appearance on Showtime's Californication, where the bratty, bossy bottom of a secretary demands that her boss spank her for any office infraction. "Hit Me Baby One More Time," indeed.

And those who bestow spankings, whether with hands, paddles, hairbrushes, or other devices, relish that power to bring pleasure and pain mixed together, to completely undo the person they are spanking with just a few (or possibly many) whacks.

Format: Paperback
Spanked is a compilation about the naughty, thrilling, blissful act of giving and receiving a paddling on the hind quarters. The stories are all so authentic in tone and delve so deep into the characters that one can't help but experience the anticipation, and release, along with them. Spanked allows an intimate peek into the pleasures of bottom-flogging from various perspectives, but all equally intense and riveting, whether bottoms and palms are covered in flour, enveloped by typewriter ribbon or simply tingling with desire. While different fantasies are described in these pages, they are all connected by a string of emotion, a factor vital to the act of spanking which elevates it from purely sexual to the fiercely personal and urgent need that it is. All the stories are smart, candid and provocative without being indulgent. Spanked is both an exploration of physical pleasure as well as the mysterious and exciting bonds that form between the participants of such a union.

If soundtrack albums help you discover new artists, then Rachel Kramer Bussel's newest foray into the anthology ring, Spanked! is the very thing that will make you want to pick up a riding crop (or your hand) and leaving a mark on someone special.

By picking through and giving us the very best (and I do mean the very BEST) stories that feature spanking (and other things, of course, but we're here for the spanking, aren't we?), Rachel Kramer Bussel has not only saved us time but she's weeded out the funny bits that we really didn't want to read anyway. Like the proverbial cream rising from the bucket, the stories in Spanked! are the crème of red cheeked erotica.

Sure, we've all got those kinks, dirty little secrets that we don't want people to know. But for those of you that think `spanking' is the most tame of kinks, I challenge you to read `Betty Crocker Gone Bad' a story that made me blush and want to bake at the same time!

Starting us of slowly with Rick Roberts' `Spanking You', Rachel Kramer Bussel brings us to all different levels of the spanking spectrum--all the way up to her own `The Depths of Despair'. I love to see anthology collectors do double duty and write a story for their collections, but rarely is it done so well. Kudos to her!

This book was very interesting and I liked reading it. The physical size of it is small enough to be tucked into a purse to be read at various locations, or even a backpack. And the stories themselves pack a lot of punch--they aren't empty. Pick this up, and I guarantee you'll be hooked.

It would be easy to write a book about spanking that comes off "over the top" or simply paints the authors as hyped up freakshows with bizarre fetishes and/or unresolved childhood issues. "Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica" is a collection of diverse, interesting, funny and sexy pieces of erotica that provide readers' preying eyes a peak into the complex world of erotic spanking.

When I got a package with three of Rachel's books in it, I knew which one I was going to read last. This one. Why? I've never been into reading about people giving spankings. When I read an erotic anthology I usually skip the stories that deal with this. However, I certainly don't mind trying new things so I jumped in feet first. Now I feel stupid! How I wish that I would have started with this one! This is easily one of the most erotic books that Rachel has edited! Easily! I have no self control to speak of so I read this book in two days (something I DO NOT recommend unless you have a ready and willing partner to help you out) and was amazed at the eroticism that was in these pages.

The submission, the sexuality, the carnality, the thought of having that much power over a person was enough to take me over the edge more than a few times. The authors whose work was chosen did an amazing job painting one hell of a sexual portrait. I usually list the stories that I enjoyed, however, if I did that this time it would almost be the entire book. If spankings aren't something that you usually read about or indulge in, might I suggest that you check it out. To use an over clichéd phrase... "Try it, you might like it".

Just finished reading this excellent spanking anthology assembled by Rachel Kramer Bussel. 22 stories guaranteed to make you sit uncomfortably as you read them. The stories run the gamut from playful to downright mean and each of them are well written, engaging and difficult to put down until the end. I especially enjoyed Daddy's Girl by Teresa Noelle Roberts where the characters broke their role-playing in a manner that many of us experience, brief giggles at the silliness of it all, then manage to resume their roles to drive to an intense climax. Like many of the stories contained herein, it touched enough on real life to give it a richness sometimes lacking in erotica.

Rachel obviously put a lot of time and effort into this collection. Not only are they all highly readable and entertaining in their own right, but the progression of the stories seems so natural. It's almost as if they were all written by the same author and always intended to be part of a book. And that's amazing, considering that the stories are diverse and written by 19 different authors, including Rachel herself.

The first story, "Spanking You" by Rick Roberts, struck me as the most vanilla and easily accessible by someone new to this genre. So it was a brilliant way to lead off the series. Each succeeding story seemed to be more intense, explicit, and unconventional. I don't know if this organization was conscious or unconscious. I don't know even know whether other readers would agree with my assessment. But it was definitely my perception - and I thought it worked.

My favorite lead paragraph was provided by Madeline Glass in "Laser Tag":

"The first time he spanked me, I thought he was a pervert. The second time he did it, I wondered if I was. By the third time, I was certain that we both were."

Readers of this book might undergo a similar progression:

"After the first story, I thought Rachel was a pervert. Reading the second story, I wondered if I was. By the third story, I was certain that we both were."

Incidentally, I was a little concerned that this book would "only" be about spanking. But rest assured, there are many other forms of sensuality and eroticism displayed in the stories (all of which are enhanced by spanking), and there are orgasms aplenty.

Finally, I'd say one key reason why these stories work is that they are almost all set in familiar places - bookstores, concerts, kitchens, etc. That made it much easier for me to imagine myself participating in the scenes - which I did for almost all of these stories.
