#SpankA2Z ~ K is for kink

Forgive me if this rambles, as I am writing it totally off the top of my head. I planned on making K a Sat spanks post, but forgot to sign up.

K is for kink.
I don't have a lot to say about this actually. I'm sure if I tried hard enough I could find enough kinks to write a whole A 2 Z list for you, but truthfully, I'm tired and I don't have time.

So, here's a thought that has stayed with me since I first read it on Our Bottom Smarts 3 years ago.
Spanking is the #1 kink. Think about this. It is the most common kink out there.  And yet most of us hide our identities, our lives and our stories, choosing to lead double lives. Meanwhile, our books are flying off the virtual shelves faster than we could have imagined or anticipated.

I'm not saying we should out ourselves. We've all seen the naysayers, the haters, the ones that read our stories and cry abuse.  There will be those people, they are there for everything, but and I can speak from personal experience here, its okay to tell friends you trust, it's okay to take a chance on a kindred spirit, Chances are you know more of them than you can fathom.

This sounds preachy, but it's not meant to be, I'm just pondering. Over the past 3 years, I have come out to several people , more than several, let's go with many. I have never once had a bad reaction, unless you count my bestie, who told me to "try yoga", like it would do the same things for me. But, given her occupation, even that was a better reaction than I could have hoped for. It was a hard first conversation, but she is now my biggest supporter.

If I counted up all the people I had shared with on some level or another, I would say the number would be in the 25-30 range. This includes a wide range of people from my loudest craziest friend to a pastors wife to a domestic violence victims advocate.  And I had one bad reaction, only one.

Those are some pretty good odds.

Sorry to ramble and cut this off abruptly. It's been a long week. I love the challenge, but June is a crazy month for it! I'm thinking it would be a bit easier when kids were still in school.

  1. that's awesome! I've only told ne person. My sister.
    And although she is accepting of it, she kind of also turns away from it.
    kinda stinks, but it's better than a negative reaction.
