What You Think

The votes are in. Here's what you said you value most in a spanking blog.
  1. Real life spanking stories

  2. Spanking-related discussion

  3. Fictional spanking stories

  4. Explicit spanking photos

  5. Spanking tutorials
I wouldn't expect to see too many explicit photos around here, but I do hear your voices. You can look for several exciting changes in the coming weeks.

You know, sometime, I'd love an open forum where people could(politely) try to explain just what it is they get out of explicit spanking pictures. They do absolutely nothing for me. In fact, the ones that look more like a porn "money shot" than a spanking shot make me cringe.

Happy New Year, Bonnie -- whatever you choose to do with your blog, we'll be here! :-) -- Erica

I don't like explicit spanking pictures, but people like different things. Some like bungee jumping - that makes me cringe. Some might say 'Spanking, how could you beat you loved one and cause them pain, possibly make them cry and bruise them'. It's all down to individual taste. You may not agree but you have to be tollerent to other peoples wishes.

Love this site - happy new year to all. Keep up the good work.

Bonnie, I would think that all of your readers like what you offer or we wouldn't still be here.
There are other places we can see explicit pictures if that's our taste.
Carry on the way you are, you are doing great.
Have a great New Year.
Warm hugs,
Paul.

Photos make me uncomfortable, too.

Funnily enough, my husband asked me last night if there was a picture of my bottom on 'that blog you read'. (He doesn't read MBS.)

Men and pictures!!

Hugs,
Hermione

Bonnie, I agree Paul about liking what you have on offer already. In fact, when I filled out the survey, I found myself listing things I really liked in 8th or 9th place. So I don't necessarily think that an item's failure to show up in the top 5 means it's not of interest.

The explicit picture conversation is interesting. They do nothing for, me, either, On the other hand, though, it's a fairly common feature of primate mating rituals for the male of the species to respond to such displays...

Erica - Thank you for your kind words of support.

I don't get the attraction of explicit photos either, but I cannot deny that many readers are visually oriented.

I agree that this question is worthy of more discussion. I've added it to the list of future brunch topics.

A - I completely agree. Thank you.

Paul - I believe that MBS readers span a continuum between those who like most of my posts and those who favor only certain kinds of content. In planning posts, I seek to satisfy the first group while sufficiently intriguing the second group to keep them coming back.

With that said, MBS won't be a place for explicit content. As you point out, there are lots of other sites that do a much better job than I could.

Hermione - If that's what he *really* wants, we can arrange it! :D

Indiana - I'm not going to abandon any reader favorites, though I may tweak some priorities.

I think you're right on target with the parallels to primate mating rituals.

Just thought I'd say:
I'm REALLY glad to hear that other people don't like photos! My boyfriend looks at them, and I have too, usually with him, but it doesn't really do anything for me. I relate more to well-written stories than somebody's pink bottom. And impact shots make me laugh! Sorry but I do think those ones look silly!

Terpsichore said...

I agree with those of you who said that photos do nothing for you...I personally don't understand the attraction...however, also respect that everyone is different...
Bonnie, I will look forward to keep visiting your site :-)

Hermione said...

Don't you dare!

I have no idea how he thought I could take a picture of my own bottom. And I know he hasn't - he doesn't know how to work the camera. So I'm safe *VBG*.

Bonnie: can't find where you stated to buy the brush in the picture. Could you remind me where you purchased it, there is a store in the general area that I live.

PS: happy new year!!!

Bonnie said...

Elle - I agree. I always thought my preference for the written word was a quirky result of my profession and training (I'm a writer). I now realize that I'm in some fine company.

Terpsichore - Thanks. I appreciate your support.

Hermione - You are safe indeed.

Mike - It seems that Pottery Barn is no longer selling these fine spanking brushes on their web site. Try these alternative sources:

I'm sure you will find this brush to be *very* effective.

Bonnie: thanks, I will check the Canadian stores of the Pottery Barn first. I imagine you are speaking from personal experience on the effectiveness of this brush :)
