Great review for Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories

December 15, 2009

I’m thrilled with this review of Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories from Kaye Cloutman at Sacramento Book Review:

Bottoms Up is undeniably a treat for one who loves to fantasize about the pain and pleasure of spanking. This collection of lustful stories ranges from mild sadomasochistic to the hardcore bondage and discipline tales of these otherwise common-looking people who have a very unconventional desire. Personally, erotic submission has always intrigued me. How much gratification can an act of surrender really give oneself? Why is it that a woman who is on her knees with her hands tied behind her back is actually in control when going down on a man? How can humiliation cause such wild orgasms for the humiliated? In a fast-paced world, one can all too easily be drawn into a routine, mundane life. Break away from that some time and arouse yourself mentally, stimulate your sensuality and spark up those little embers of desire within you once more. Sneak away into a quiet place and indulge yourself with some literary quickies from 20 concupiscent authors and just let go… Great sex, whether in ordinary forms, or replete with all the ingredients for deviation, begins with a clear and submissive mind. Let Bottoms Up provide you with a contemplative foreplay for that.

Great review of Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories at Feminist Review

I love this review by Lesley Kartali of Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories at Feminist Review:

There is an even mix of stories representing different perspectives: giving, receiving, fantasizing, and watching spanking. The majority of stories comprise male/female partnerships, though there are a few involving queer characters. Since openly male authors in this genre are apparently uncommon, this particular collection has mostly male authors.

One of the things I liked most is that many of the stories felt real in the sense that the characters were often experiencing the conflicting feelings of arousal, confusion, and guilt that often come with having a fetish. The sensation of pleasure mixed with pain is a major theme and, of course, is pretty much the basic idea of BDSM. The character in “Ass Worship,” for instance, is drawn to experiment with being spanked. He has many questions about it and is extremely nervous at first, unsure if he can actually go through with it.

Many of the stories involve a person’s first time being spanked or spanking someone else. Others involve such exciting and sometimes amusing subjects as swingers, Renaissance Fair fantasies, church frolicking, and (in the editor’s piece) a spanking machine. My very favorite story, “I’m Going to Grab Your Hair,” is written as though the author (and spanker) is “dirty talking” to the reader (and spankee). It is rough and nasty and thrilling. I’d never read an erotica piece in quite that style before.

Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories out now; excerpt from “The Purple Balloon”

July 22, 2009

Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories is out now! Stay tuned for news on how you can WIN a paddle perfect for spanking or getting spanked this Monday, July 27th.

For now, here’s an excerpt from Tess Danesi’s story “The Purple Balloon.”

I began to caress the balloon to my cheek, let it glide down to my hard, dusky nipples and belly the way I had done so many times in my head. It was so close to my sex, to my aching clit and cunt, that I felt the static jump between the thin latex and my few fine blonde pubic hairs. I parted my thighs even farther, losing any self-consciousness for one all too quick moment, as the balloon touched my sensitized clit and I gasped, the sound of my voice bringing me back to the humiliating reality of where I was; naked and splayed and dripping wet in front of a completely dressed stranger; a stranger who I’d paid for the privilege of being humiliated by. I started to close my legs when Madeline’s hand alighted on the warm, dewy skin of my thigh. If I had thought that the balloon generated electricity, her gentle touch and the single word she spoke, “No,” were like a surge in voltage.

“You are indeed a very nasty girl, Kate. Spread out for me like a little tramp and enjoying it, too. I can see how wet you are. Wet like only a true slut would be. I can see just how desperately you need to be punished.”

She got up from her chair and stood peering down at me for a moment before extending her hand to me and helping me, on trembling legs, to my feet. She led me around to the back of the desk, and bent me over at the very corner so that my groin was pressed right up against the worn old wood edge. I wanted to press myself into it, I was so desperate to come I thought I would die, but I didn’t dare. My pulse quickened, knowing I was seconds away from having her spank me, spank me while telling me how bad I was, how I needed a firm hand.

“I’m going to begin now,” she started, “with my hand. You’ll get ten strokes. I expect you to stay completely still for those. There will be plenty of time for you to writhe about when we advance to the other instruments. Do you understand?”

“Yes Ma’am,” I said, having fallen comfortably into this way of addressing her.

The first time her hand made contact with my pert, round ass, it was almost gentle. I felt her open palm and splayed fingers distributing the soft impact. I sighed in relief and I held still as she commanded. The next was in the same spot, again a light touch. It didn’t hurt; it smarted. It became more and more difficult to remain still with each progressive stroke, but I did and it filled me with an odd sense of accomplishment. Each of those first ten strokes were in exactly the same place, each successively harder until it did hurt, but the harsher slaps made my cunt grind harder into the corner of the desk, filling me with the sensation of pain and pleasure all at once, making me know I would lose my mind if I couldn’t come. Then she began again on the other cheek until I felt as though the heat radiating from my crimson ass was warming the entire room. But that was only the beginning.
