Today's Fun Fact

I heard this yesterday on my favorite radio station here in the Twin Cities, MyTalk 107.1 FM--the one I sometimes call "Radio Spanko" for the number of spanking references I've heard various talk show hosts make on the air:

If you took the male scrotum, and stretched it out to the point where all the wrinkles had disappeared, it could hold a basketball.

Amazing, but true.

Sure, it has nothing to do with spanking--but just try and get that visual out of your head.....

A Poem

I have been exchanging e-mails recently with someone new, and a week or so ago she sent me a poem that she had composed. All that spanking talk does tend to bring out the creativity in a person.

I enjoyed the verse, and I asked her if she had any objection to my putting it on my blog. I promised to attribute it to "Anonymous" so as to not compromise her identity in any way. Thankfully, she agreed to let me post the poem. Her husband suggested that instead of "Anonymous", a more fitting name might be "Anaughtimous".

So, here's a short poem from Anaughtimous. I hope you enjoy it, and--with any luck at all--she'll contribute more in the future.

"Now I lay me across your lap,

I hope the smacks more than a tap.

If I squirm before you're done,

I wish more heat upon my bum."

-- Anaughtimous

Breaking The Ice

I recently sent in my admission fee for the Chicago Crimson Moon Summer Spanktacular. Yes, I will be there. Please feel free to come up and say "Hi" or "Hello" or "Please spank me" (the last only if you're a female).

I'm really looking forward to the party. I always do. Crimson Moon has been a great party venue, and I've met a lot of people and made a lot of friends.

A schedule of events for all nights was included, and as might be expected, one of the entries on the first night was for "ice-breaker" games. These are always a good idea, and most spanking parties around the country have them. They really help get the party started. If there are people there at their first spanking party, it helps get them involved so that they're not just sitting back and watching everyone else. The games are usually pretty simple. Cutting cards or rolling dice, for example. Other games might be a bit more elaborate.

There's one small thing that a lot of the parties get wrong, though.

Whoever is helping to get the ball rolling will announce the game and then inevitably finish by saying, "Winner spanks the loser." And that's fine--if everybody playing is a switch, that is. But what about those people who are strictly Tops, or strictly Bottoms? It totally leaves them out.

There is a very simple solution, of course, and thankfully a few party organizers have figured it out.

Have people play as a team--one Top, one Bottom.

Everyone gets a chance to play that way. If Team A wins the ice-breaker against Team B, the winning team's Top delivers the penalty spanking to the Bottom of Team B, and vice versa. If you get enough players, you should be able to pit teams of Female Tops/Male Bottoms against each other, Male Tops/Female Bottoms against each other, and people who switch can fill in where needed, playing against any team or another team of Switches. Everyone is involved, and no one has to feel left out.

And--since the idea of these games is to break the ice--you can always pair up a Top and a Bottom who don't know each other. Playing as a team helps break the ice as much as anything.

I hope all the people who throw parties will adopt this idea. Feel free to pass it along.


Change of subject--I continue to slowly work on the blog roll, trying to bring it up to date. I most recently dropped a couple of sites. I also added a couple. Lea's Corner and The Confessions Of A Spanked Princess are now included on the blog roll. I hope you pay them a visit and enjoy them. Be sure to leave a comment and, if you get the chance, tell them that Dr. Ken sent you over.

SpankedHortic II and The Pink Report have moved to new homes on WordPress recently. I have the links to those sites updated, so you should have no trouble finding them.

And speaking of the wonderful Pink, be sure to go to the Blossom and Thorn blog to read the great interview Season and Michael did with her. They do great interviews over there. If you go back in the archives a bit, you can read the great interview they did with Bonnie of My Bottom Smarts fame. It's just one of many excellent posts you'll find there.

All In The Family

The family that spanks together is a close-knit unit, indeed. Below, we see three generations of women--Sister, Mother, and even Grandma--joining forces to help a girl celebrate her "special day".

How do I join this family? Although I suspect I'd wind up paraphrasing that old aspirin commercial--"Mother, please! I'd rather spank her myself!!"

Happy Birthday, Marilyn!

June 1st marked the birthday of Marilyn Monroe. She would have been 85.

At the start of this year, I began to update my fantasy list--the top 10 female celebrities that I would love to spank, given the opportunity. So far, I've done numbers 1 through 8, with two to go. I have a couple of ladies in mind for those spots, but I haven't absolutely decided yet.

I only had two rules: no reality "stars", and they had to be living. So, no Kardashians, no Snooki, and no dead actresses.

If I had ignored those rules, though, there's no question which actress would be at the top of the list.

Marilyn Monroe.

Even to this day, she is (for me, anyway) the very personification of the Hollywood Sex Symbol. She is the Gold Standard. She is the Icon.

As it frequently seems to happen in the land of sunshine and celluloid, she left us all too soon. Who knows how long she could have kept making movie--who knows what roles she could have created as she became older and wiser and more skilled in her craft? It's a shame we'll never get the chance to find out.

It's hard to imagine what Marilyn might have looked like at 85. It's perhaps for the best that the only way we can remember her now is in the way she wanted to live her life--in pictures.

Happy birthday, Norma Jean--not "goodbye".
