Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for November 16


Our topic was your favourite spanking book and/or author, and here are your top pics.

Katie: I have enjoyed all of the authors that I have read around the land. Such a diverse group, I can't pick a favourite. I don't think that I even want to! :)

On the other hand, I can tell you of two authors outside the land that write really good spanking scenes that I enjoy. Both I are D/s really. One is Cherise Sinclair. I love her books. They are fun, and you get to know the characters as you progress through. The other is Kallypso Masters. Her Masters at Arms series is wonderful!! There is so much more to them, and good spanking scenes too. She writes really well too. Best to go in order though.

Rollin: The best piece of spanking erotica I ever read, and this was way long before before jumping into writing it myself, was a book called "Passions of a Satyr" by a "Frank Doyle". It was just a porno store paperback, but the writing was excellent. I keep looking on Olympia Press to see if it will turn up, but so far not yet.

Dr. Ken: While I am a voracious reader--at one time, I actually counted it up and found I had about 300 paperbacks and hardcovers waiting to be read--I don't seek out spanking stories, or books that might contain spanking. My tastes are more mainstream--suspense, mystery, some horror, some SciFi or Fantasy. I much prefer the oppoturnity for the real thing as opposed to reading about it!

Baxter: Many authors are good including Fiona Locke, Rachel Kramer Bussel and CC Patterson. The last one self publishes and can be found on Amazon. I have only purchased from Amazon and there are hundreds of books on it that involve spanking and discipline.

Anon: Catherine Taylor! The Finest Line (trilogy) has a fabulous secondary storyline with plenty of suspense/intrigue that balances the dd/ds dynamics of the developing romance. (Some stories can saturate with so much of it one can become desensitized). Great mix, I also liked the the way the erotic appeal of dd is embraced.

Jenn: I don't read fiction, so I'll mention one of the books that led me to the realization that I love the thought of being spanked: "My Secret Garden: Women's Sexual Fantasies" by Nancy Friday. After reading then entire book as a young 20-something, I noticed that all the fantasies that I had dog-eared involved spanking or something very similar. Others (rape fantasies, etc.) did nothing for me. That led me to more of her books and other anthologies of realistic erotica short stories, some of which involved discipline topics.

Prefectdt: I still think that Nikki Flynn's memoir "Dances with Werewolves" is my favourite book with spanking in it.

Jan: I love lots of our spanking bloggers books. Just recently I discovered Ashe Barker's trilogies. I loved them all!

Lillyanna: I recently came upon Caia Fox! I've really enjoyed reading all of her books :)

Minelle: A lot of the 80s bodice busters had spanking in them. Of course they were very mild compared to the stories written specifically here in our world. I still loved them. Here there are too many good authors to choose from.

Jon: Wow, lots of authors I'd never heard of before.

The Story of O started me down (up?) the road.

An author named Martin Pyx had a series of books with the names of the seasons in them I enjoyed in the [years redacted to protect me.] I think he is out of print.

There are too many new authors to pick one favorite so I'll dodge and name two ladies who have recently started publishing. Both go (well) beyond DD. "Golden Angel" and "Rachel Burns." Over among the men are DJ Black and Devlin O'Neil, who has a very readable series about a mythical place called Neverwasnia.

PK Corey and Leigh Smith deserve particular mention from me because Hermione's blog led me to them and their writing.

Jimisim: My first favourite was the late Alex Birch, who in his blog "Flaming Cheeks" encouraged me to write and bullied me into entering a an annual contest which amazingly I won in my category.

Currently my favourites on LSF are Susan Thomas and an occasional author called 'Spankerotic'. It is rather unfair to single out individual authors though as on LSF they all give freely of their work and many others give me great pleasure.

One thing I have noticed is that there seem to be great differences in personal preferences. For instance I will not knowingly read stories involving children under sixteen, and I don't gain much pleasure from domestic discipline stories which involve an overbearing or controlling partner.
There also appears to be a pronounced difference in taste between the UK and the US, although not possibly Canada.

Ronnie: Some authors here I've never heard of. We have some wonderful writers in our community and I have several of their books.

To be honest I don't have a favourite and too many good authors to choose from. I have liked some by Alex Birch.

Hermione: My earliest introduction to spanking literature was The Story of O by Pauline Reage. I them discovered The Pearl, a colllection of 18 issues of the Victorian magazine of the same name. Later I also discovered Blue Moon Press and Nancy Friday's My Secret Garden.

My favourite modern book is Erica Scott's Late Bloomer. It's an autobiographical account written by someone I know, and there's plenty of spanking in it.

Jay: Right now, I think my favorite author who includes spanking is Livia Grant. She recently published "Wanting it All" and "Securing It All." She has another in that series that she is trying to get out soon. I'm sure my list of favorites will grow if I ever find time to read again!

There you have it. Don't you feel like curling up in a comfy armchair with a good book?

Yes to books; no to curling (Canadian style).

Awww, thanks, Hermione. :-)

And thanks to Jon for the kind mention. He recommended I read the chapter aloud where Franny and her friends got spanked on the street and escorted, bare-bottomed, back to their home at the restaurant. So I did. ;-)
