Sixty Eight?


In a guest post promoting her latest book, our long time friend, Paige Tyler, tells us that sixty eight percent of women surveyed say they have been spanked in bed. Sixty eight percent! This figure was provided by Cosmopolitan Magazine.

Wow. Really? That's very cool. I've never felt quite so mainstream.

I hope those couples enjoyed it...

Bonnie, thanks for the links.
Warm hugs,

Bonnie, that's good news. Of course they enjoyed it!

And if Cosmo says it's true, then it must be! Wow! We are in the majority!

Hugs,
Hermione

I've always thought it's more common between partners than people let on. It's just that they're not as open about what they do in the bedroom as some of us are.

I'd be willing to bet that in my area and circles, that number is significantly less. The poll was taken by Cosmo, right? Most of the people in my circle either don't read that magazine, or read it on the sly. This area has a strong majority of uber-conservative Christians (and Mennonite, and a few others along those lines). These people never talk about sex in public, and may even shy from talking to spouses about it. Probably the whole lot does it missionary-position only, and in the utmost secrecy.

If my friends or family found out about my kink, there would be a lot of confusion, and either concern for my "well being" or silent distancing.

It stinks, but that's where I'm at.

At least the mainstreamers (and myself!) get to enjoy a little variety and freedom.

I'm not surprised by the 68%, I think people are a lot kinkier than they let on! I doubt if the number represents the kinds of spankings us spankos receive though. I would guess these people are classifying some playful swats as a 'spanking' and aren't pulled over a lap and paddled with the intensity some of us enjoy. Still, a spankings a spanking, I guess! Fun link!

Paul - You're very welcome, dear friend.

Hermione - Who'd have guessed? Not me.

Rad - I don't know if it's true, but I want it to be so!

Rosy - I wondered myself about how representative their sample was, but who am I to argue with a world full of spankos? :D

Lula - Hi! It's great to hear from you again.

I figured a good portion of that 68% was pure fun and games, but as you say, it's still very impressive.

I'm not really surprised by such a high figure, but as was said before I would venture that some of these "spankings" were more like love taps than anything else...

Still, that's fun too sometimes. I like the idea that people are experimenting and having fun. Boring sex is such an oxymoron...
