I try to write soul-searching, introspective exploration of my sexuality. I like reading others embarked on the same project.
Jillian Keenan has written a terrific, honest exploration of her appetite for spanking in, of all places, The New York Times.
I recommend it heartily. She digs pretty deep here – about as deep as a two-page article in a family newspaper possibly can go – and is wrenchingly honest about her evolving relationship to her mysterious (to her) desires.
Read it. And please, if you see other writing like this, I’d be grateful if you called my attention to it.
[Note: It’s written from/for a pretty vanilla stance – “vanilla,” for example, is defined as the term used by spankophiles to describe non-spankophiles. But if you’re deep in the kink scene, don’t let that put you off; her writing is powerful and deeply introspective.]
Thanks for the link N. really good.
Thanks for sharing this. It really is well written and is such a great topic – revealing a fetish regardless of what it is.
One minor complaint I have: I think she’s talking about a kink, not a fetish. A fetish is a technical term that refers to a sexual relationship to non-human objects, like shoes, or leather. Spanking isn’t a fetish. I think….

It’s a very good blog in general for psychological/sociological insights and discussions on sexuality.
Wow – that looks awesome. Thanks so much!
