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.

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.
This review was originally posted on August 1, 2008. Reposted Feb 13, 2009.
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".
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.
