The art of corporal punishment more commonly known as spanking is one that many enthusiasts enjoy. Nothing sexier than a red hot ass where the nerves have opened up and blood has rushed to the area to make someone feel the fun sting during sexual play.
The ass is mostly muscle, so it's harder to hurt than other body parts. It's also one of the strongest muscles in the human body. It's also one of the most talked about features of the human body. No man or woman can resist a hot, well-muscled or tight ass on the partner of their choosing. With all the nerve endings in the ass and around the anus in particular, it's no wonder spanking fetishes are popular in sexual culture.
The fetish itself is versatile. It can be involved in role play. The priest and naughty nun fetish often involves discipline as does the school marm and student. Or principal and teacher. What's taboo to one person is often highly sexualized to another.
Some psychiatrists suggest that love of spanking stems from childhood issues and for many, that may be true. Others simply find the fetish to be an extreme turn-on. It's gender neutral, which means both men and women can get something out of it. For women, the feeling of helplessness and submission makes her wet, because it stimulates those nerve endings. The anticipation of sex from contact of one of her erogenous zones heightens the sensation for her.
For men, turning a sweet, hot bottom pink is more about control and dominance in addition to the above mentioned anticipation of getting laid.
The bottom is a prime erogenous zone; however, unlike other zones such as the breasts and back of the neck, the sexual arousal nerves in the bottom are buried in a layer of fat and require harder stimulation to trigger them. Spanking is an obvious choice here, especially once blood has gathered near the genitals. A woman clenches her legs together or squirms, often rubbing her clitoris against the knee or bench she may be bent over during the spanking, adding to the stimulation she receives. Siddella from Menage Bound knew this joy at one point. As did Shelly from The Playground, my first and third Decadent 1NS stories.
When she's given permission to feel sexual, spanking reinforces those feelings.
One of the best spots to swat an ass on either gender is where the ass cheek and thigh meet, often known as the sweet spot. It's near enough the genitals to keep blood flowing there as the skin warms and stimulate that mental organ known as the brain.
Not much spanking going on in MenageBound, but sure as hell there's kink!
