Spanking in the aftermath of a first fight: A Companion to EXPLORATIONS #SatSpanks

This week I'll be releasing A Companion to EXPLORATIONS, Part 1. It's a compilation of the story I've been telling here on the blog for the last eight months, of my early relationship with Charles and how I came to write the series of books I called EXPLORATIONS. This snippet comes from the story of our first fight, and its aftermath. You may find it a little contentious--I'd be grateful to hear any opinion, contentious or not!
When religion isn't involved, though, if I understand how it's supposed to work, and how the psychological benefits are supposed to accrue to me if I embrace my womanliness by letting my man make all my important decisions (sorry, but, for me, personally, frankly, no-go, in any non-erotic context), then in this situation with the oil stock, if I had protested against my man's accepting the stock, let alone told him that he and his parents could go fuck themselves, I would have received one of those "punishment spankings" that are so delicious to contemplate erotically and, to me, so repugnant ethically. 
Charles would have grabbed me, and dragged me to my room, and taken off his belt, and ripped down my jeans--maybe thrown me over the edge of the bed. (See Emily's First Caning for one of my elaborations of this theme.) He would have held me down and beaten me as hard as he could--even if I'd used our safeword--while I kicked and screamed and tried to get away, until he saw the resistance go out of me, and I was (magically, I guess) saying "I'm sorry, Sir; I was wrong; I see now, because you've hit my ass over and over with your belt, demonstrating your strength and my weakness, your masculinity and my femininity, your headship of me, that oil companies are good." (Or, rather, I guess I'm supposed to be saying something like "Even though I think oil companies are bad, you are a man and I am a woman and you make decisions and I abide by them, and because I swore at you I deserve to be beaten, and I am ever so grateful to you that you have deigned to beat me with your sacred belt and that now, like the guys in the DD stories, you are going to use me roughly--but lovingly--to console me for being a weak woman who needs beating to stay in line." Actually, the using part I could enjoy.) 
But how could that be a way to live ethically for me, given that I believe my mind is as good as Charles' mind, and my values are as important as his values, and have to be so?
And, of course, the blurb (buy the book here!):
It was a look of appraisal; I don't think there's another way to put it. Charles Smith appraised me as a possible anal-submissive, and I felt searched out and known as I never, ever had before.

This companion, drawn from Emily's blog, tells the story of her early relationship with her husband Charles, and of the way she came to write the first version of the Explorations series. Please note that most of the content of this book has appeared on the blog, though it is no longer available there.

This companion to EXPLORATIONS contains fiction elaborating the following sorts of fantasy that you may wish to avoid: Mf, spanking, anal. It's intended for over-18 audiences who, like me, are interested in exploring the lines between pleasure and pain, dominance and submission, and fantasy and reality. All characters depicted are consenting adults.

Read all the Saturday Spankings!

  7. Contentious it is, but cleverly so. Although there is humour and sarcasm, I also kind of got a wistful sense, that Emily almost wished she could be more embracing of it, thus still keeping those who may strongly disagree on side. It's very well written.

  9. I loved where the resistance went out of her "(magically, I guess)". Oh, the sacred belt- well really it's not nice to swear at your husband.

    1. No, but it's not nice to hit someone with a belt, either. ;)

  10. Yes, it did go with the theme of the week. And of course, I have to agree with her/your assessment entirely.
