With an introduction by well-known disciplinarian, Ms Cassandra Park, these spanking-hot stories are brought to you by one of today's bestselling editors of erotica, D. L. King. From the story of a man's hands-on tutelage in what makes spanking erotic in A.D.R. Forte's, "Anything But Ordinary" to the idea that eavesdropping can lead to a very happily ever after, in Cervo's "The Royal Montague," Spank! delivers. Donna George Storey's "Anthropology" introduces the concept of what a newly spanked bottom feels like to a neophyte and Kathleen Bradean introduces us to a celebrity, desperately in need a spanking, who turns the tables on her feckless manager in "Apple Bottom Hard Cider." Sommer Marsden comes up with a unique dieting tool in "Sugar." Sure to get your motor running, these stories will really warm your-heart! D. L. King is the editor of the Lamda Literary Award Finalist, Where the Girls Are. Violet Blue gave King's bestselling vampire anthology, The Sweetest Kiss, the number two position in her top ten Hottest Sex Books of 2009.
I'm a New Yorker. I write smut. Some people call it erotica and some people call it porn. I call it a good time. Oh, yeah, I don't just write smut; I edit it too. I also publish and edit an erotica book review site called Erotica Revealed . There's more to see on my blog and on my website.
In addition to the ones shown here, you can find my short stories in a number of anthologies such as The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica (8, 9, and 10), Best Women's Erotica (09) and Best Lesbian Erotica (08, 10 and 11). For a more complete list, check out my blog or my website.
First the fine print. I have a story in this collection (one that I'm very fond of). However, I'm pleased to note that my tale is in good company. Spank! is a lively, original selection of stories about corporal punishment, particularly administered by hand on a bent-over bottom, by some of my favorite authors. The tone of these tales ranges from lyrical ("Anything But Ordinary", by A.D.R. Forte) to hilariously clever (Cervo's "The Royal Montague" and Roxy Katt's "The Trumpet of Destiny") with a broad swathe of reddened cheeks in-between. Some of my other favorites include J.Z. Sharpe's "The House on Oxford Street", which explores one of those single, life-changing experiences that can never be repeated, no matter how much one wants to; "Sugar", by Sommer Marsden, far more than just a clever approach to dieting; "Thin-skinned" by Jean Roberta, probably the most realistic story in the collection, with its heroine beset by a wandering mind and inner doubts; Lee Ash's "Slippering", a classic tale of domestic corporal punishment told so well that it seems fresh; "Richard's Reward", by D.L.King, a butt-warming tale of female domination; and Evan Mora's haunting and enigmatic "What Jackie Gives Me". Considering that all the stories in this collection involve spanking, it's remarkably diverse. And as you can see - it's almost worthy buying just for the cover! The introduction by Cassandra Parks is an added bonus.
I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
While the subject isn't my thing the stories are definitely arousing. Some of them deal solely with spanking and others with sexual acts as well. Many different stories are within, no two the same. One thing that does carry through all of them is the arousal and fulfilment of the characters desires, While reading the stories, although I always had the constant thought that I couldn't understand the act of spanking being sexually arousing, the descriptions of the characters was arousal were in nearly all cases so good that I could not fail to be aroused to. I am certain that if spanking is something that you enjoy then you cannot fail but to enjoy and be aroused by the stories presented in this collection - if it isn't then I wouldn't be surprised if were not aroused yourself.
