Cleis Press, Oct 2012

There is a sound, a resonance, to a perfect spanking, a tone that can only be achieved by cupping a hand at exactly the right angle, pausing to confirm the intended area of impact and bringing that hand down sharply against a firm buttock. The subsequent gasp of pleasure is the punctuation confirming a flawlessly executed smack. 
       -- "Echo" by J. Sinclaire

I love this book.  The art of spanking has never been this….well, cheeky; pun intended. Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel has once again gathered the best erotica writers for a collection of scandalously titillating, adventurous tales that are all “stingingly good.”  There’s the reporter whose interview with a spank daddy yields hot results; the ingénue who disguises herself as a man to get into the all boys club only to be discovered and taken over everyone’s knee; the lover whose partner brings in a substitute to punish him while he’s away; the bad boy who wants to tame the bad girl but is punished himself; and the lovers who find a nudist colony is the perfect place to show off their marks of triumph. 

Writers in this collection include, Ms. Kramer Bussel herself, Andrea Dale, Lucy Felthouse, Shanna Germain, Isabelle Gray, Adele Haze, Evan Mora, Giselle Renarde, Thomas S. Roche and Craig J. Sorensen.

Whether with a hand, belt, paddle or cane, all these stories will leave you tingling.  I would like to close with another quote from "Marks" by Rachel Kramer Bussel:  "The marks were something she could carry with her, claim utterly and completely as hers. They branded her as a woman who could take a mean spanking...It was like having a particularly bold tattoo, or, in her case, five, the kind people can't look away from, yet more powerful."###
