A Spanko Manifesto

We are spankos. It’s an integral part of who we are, but not the entirety of our being.

We spank and we are spanked. We watch, read about, write about, and discuss spankings. We dream about spankings to be and reminisce about spankings past.

We know who and what we are. We are not ashamed. Neither are we afraid. We are normal, happy people who enrich our lives through the enjoyment of this simple act.

We recognize and accept that some people cannot or will not understand. But that fact shall not deter us. We know from our own life experiences how beneficial adult spankings can be.

We are not strange, crazy, or dangerous. We respect all people and reject abuse in every form.

Within our ranks are represented every age, gender, race, class, orientation, religion, language, political affiliation, and country. We are spankos all.

We choose to band together as a community to provide support and encourage understanding. The friendship and common cause we find empowers us to reach out and speak the truth.

We spank in many ways and for many different reasons. However, we are committed in all cases to promoting safe, healthy, consensual, and caring relationships.

We know what we desire and what we prefer. We are not mistaken, misled, or misinformed. These feelings are our own and they are genuine.

We are spankos, and that’s a good thing.

Tiggr - Aw, thanks. The manifesto wasn't something I planned to any degree. I sat down (ouch) at the keyboard and it just happened. As a writer, I live for those magical moments.

I'm proud to be a part of this wonderful community.

Paul - You're very welcome, my dear friend.

OPB - It's good to know that we are all a part of something bigger. That's what community is about.

PK - :D I'm pleased that you liked it.

Paige - Thanks!

Self - Any writer's best work comes when they write from the heart. This is a cause about which I feel deeply.

Eva - I certainly believe it is! Thanks.

Reesa - Sure! Sign away by all means. Thank you.

Mike - I'll check it out.
