From the Top Shelf - My Secret Garden

For those of you who have never read Nancy Friday's book My Secret Garden, it was an amazing publication that caused quite a stir when it first appeared in 1973. Women have sexual fantasies too? What a revelation! Nancy interviewed women of all ages and from all walks of life and recorded their secret sexual fantasies.

While sexual activities of all sorts were described in loving detail, there wasn't a great deal of spanking fantasy. When I first read the book I found and bookmarked the following fantasy involving spanking by a 28-year-old woman called Nathalie.

My first fantasy is that of being spanked. I have always provoked the spanking, it's never unjustified. My innate female bitchiness causes my lover to say, very quietly, "All right now, that's enough!" I say "Don't order me around" and he replies "You're asking for a good spanking". I answer "I'd like to see you try it!' in a very taunting manner.

At this point he grabs me, grasps both hands firmly behind my back, pulls down my panties, turns me over onto his knee and traps my kicking legs between his.

I am embarrassed and scared. He usually uses his hand, spanking me maybe two dozen times, very hard. Sometimes I fantasize that he uses a hairbrush or a ruler. I am sobbing and enraged, but the rage turns to humiliation and then to helpless submission. At the end he forces me back on the bed and enters me quickly and without foreplay.

Sometimes I like to imagine myself staying in an enraged mood throughout the spanking. Then he pushes me back on the bed, hovers over me and pushes his erect penis into my mouth, ordering me to suck it. I refuse and bite his cock which brings on another, even more painful, spanking, at which point I am prepared to do anything he asks.

The thought of being spanked used to arouse sexual feelings at the age of six or seven, even though I didnt recognize them as such. If it matters I have never been spanked by either of my parents.

I'll have a longer and more detailed fantasy for you in the near future.

I read My Secret Garden back in the time before the Internet when it wasn't easy to find writings aboutg women's fantasies. Thanks for reminding me.


Hermione said...

Joey - I had nearly forgotten about that book. I'm glad I found it while dusting.

FD - I'm always happy to know I've brought back good memories.

At first I was thinking of the children's story. Well, that must not be it. :)

I wonder why do people always go to what their parents did. Does it help to either justify or make it more or less shameful -the desire?

Hermione said...

fB - I suspect that some people think having been spanked as a child produces a desire for it in later life. That doesn't seem to be the case for many spankos.

I enjoyed reading this little fantasy again. Thanks Hermione.


Julia said...

What a nice little story. And I was thinking of the children's story too at first...but didn't remember any sexual anything in it!

Hermione said...

Ronnie - Not much to it, but quite startling to read about it in the seventies.

Julia - That was "The" Secret garden - what a difference one word makes, when you're ordering it on Amazon:)

I'm totally buying that book... I think you deserve a kickback! I loved reading that little fantasy, but I can only imagine what kind of spanking would be "earned" by biting down on a man's penis...

If there were more of this nature, i also would purchase the book
bottoms up

Emen said...

Oh do I remember this. I think I know most of them by heart still. What a beautiful book. One fantasy started out I think in the first book, "I am fat but in my fantasy I'm not fat." I remember thinking "Of course you're not, baby. In our fantasies we are all beautiful. And you are. In fantasy and in real, you are."

What a great gift from you, that memory.

The secret garden . . .

with my own secret garden. . . .)

I remember reading this way back when. Thank you for reminding me.

Back then, spanking was pretty much in the closet, so I am a bit surprised that she reveled as much as she did. We now know that many Ladies feel roughly (pun intended) the same way, and personally I LOVE IT! Every day I read about a Lady needing a spanking to relieve stress and to release those pent up endorphins, or simply as punishment for something she did. Happily it is more open now, at least on the internet.


Florida Dom said...

I don't think being spanked as a child produces a spanko. I think being a spanko is in your DNA or psyche. If you don't have that desire to be a spanko, I don't think being spanked as a kid will make any difference.


Hermione said...

SpankCake - I hope you enjoy it.

Red - Lots of juicy fantasies about all sorts of things. You might find it interesting.

Emen - What a lovely comment. I'm sp glad I shared this memory.

Ricky - Goodness no, you are NOT alone:)

Sunnygirl - It was quite the hot topic for weeks.

Dave - We have come a long way.
