When we think about fantasy play, the image that comes to mind so often includes one part of a couple being spanked. Whether it’s a slave being punished by her master or a school boy bending over for his sexy teacher, the idea of spanking can be one of the most erotically charged acts.
So what makes spanking so hot?
“For some people, it’s the anticipation of what’s about to happen – the feel of their partner’s hand moving over the curves of their bottom, tugging their clothes aside to allow the skin-on-skin contact that they crave,” says author and sex educator Tristan Taormino. “For others it’s the feeling of being controlled by their lover, bent over and exposed to both sight and touch, not knowing what’s going to happen next.”
Spanking kicks off a flood of endorphins for both partners, she says, and can lead to new heights of intimacy and sexual pleasure. She has advice for any couple thinking about creating a spanking fantasy.
“First, make sure that you check in with your partner before, during and after the fun,” she says. “When we know that we can ask for what we want and say no to what we don’t want, we are able to relax and really enjoy what’s happening.”
Taormino suggests the couple create a safe word or check-in plan so that both partners are communicating throughout the experience.
Next up: Pick your paddle. For a playful spanking, you might try the Midnight Lace Paddle, a lightweight paddle wrapped in soft fabric, or a Leather Paddle with Black Fur. Or if you’re ready to get a little more adventurous, consider the Edge Classic Leather Slapper or the Edge Hard Limits Crop.
Taormino counsels the spanker to start with slow light strokes to get the skin softened and the partner aroused. “Gradually increase the pressure of the paddle and vary the pace,” she says. “You might want to tell your partner to ask – or beg – for more a harder touch, a good communication tool that also reinforces the roleplaying.” The teasing and tantalizing can be half the fun.
There’s no limit to the ways you can use spanking to live out your fantasy. You might want to add in a feather spanker or faux leather flogger to give your partner a different sensation between paddles. You can also switch up your “target zone.”
“No matter what you do, remember spanking should be fun,” Taormino says. “Don’t worry if it doesn’t go exactly like the fantasy. Enjoy what comes up and follow it to a blissful end for both of you. You never know what you might learn about your partner or yourself when you open up to the playful side of sex.”

Congrats to Mistress Kay of My Kinky World for winning best BDSM in our Valentine's Fantasy Contest. Her three-way poolside pegging fantasy definitely left us hot and bothered!
Clang! I pull the name badge off from around my neck and drop it unceremoniously onto the glass-topped table next to my chair. Enjoying the weekend at a kink conference with two of my play partners had been a fantastic idea. Both my submissives, we had enjoyed some spanking and orgasm torture scenes the night before, and we were looking forward to today's activities of relaxation. The room's humidity told me that something besides the leather dress I was wearing might have been more conducive to relaxation, though.
This afternoon, the three of us are enjoying one of the amazing features of this conference: a hotel swimming pool with no clothes required and no rules in place. Various people are strewn throughout the deep water including a couple that's having sex on one of the sides of the pool. A bit adverse to messing up our make-up and hair so early in the day, my female submissive and I sit, clothed, in the poolside chairs while we watch my male submissive swim leisurely around the pool without a strip of clothing on his body.
Congrats to Cheyenne, who packed an amazing amount of Sportsheets products in her sexy entry to our Valentine's Fantasy Contest. Not surprisingly, she won the "Best Use of sex toys award. Enjoy!
My fantasy starts out at home. I'm getting ready to take a shower and I think I heard something in the other room. I go to check it out but nothing is there.
I take my clothes off and jump in the shower. I reach for my Vibrating Mesh Sponge to pleasure myself. I put my foot on my Single Locking Suction Foot Rest, then I begin to feel the power of my sponge. Just as I'm about to shower all over the shower I hear someone again in the other room. Babe is that you? I call out but no one answers. Now I'm starting to get nervous! All my senses are high. I hurry and finish my shower so I can find out what's going on.
Congrats to Elena, winner of the most romantic entry in our Valentine's Fantasy Contest!
Elena was just getting home… thinking to herself – Oh, another Valentine’s Day! Henry probably forgot… being so busy with getting his car detailed and buffed. Hmpt! I wouldn’t mind by buffed myself!
She entered her home and it was dark… She thought: Yep, Henry forgot about our dinner tonight… oh well! Then she stopped – Wait… what was that noise? Did someone break into the house… no… that’s music. Burglers don’t usually put on romantic music!
