My first ebook up for review is "How To Get The Spanking You Want: The Complete Guide to Asking For it, Getting it, and Making it Better" by Vivian of The Disciplined Feminist. I have an excerpt on this site if you'd like to read it.
The author has over 23 years of spanking experience and over a decade of scholarly and academic research on the subject. She is even well published.
The book is broken up into 4 chapters with a pretty good flow and cohesive train of thought.It's developed for the person that would like to enter a spanking relationship with their partner but don't know how to go about doing it. Written in a conversational tone will really help you explore the topic in your head as you read along. The author stays pretty general about what kind of spanking relationship, but does mention domestic discipline and play spanking so I think it could help you no matter what type of spanking your are looking for. It's an excellent first step for the hesitant and hopeful spankee.
The first chapter will help you figure out what type of spanking you are looking for, and analyze your fantasies to understand what you expect from a spanking, but she also explains that your real life spankings probably won't look anything like your fantasies. After all, you control the fantasy and the spanker always knows exactly what to do, right?
The second chapter is set up to help you ask your partner to spank you. While I do have some issues with the way the author says you should go about asking, there is some sound advice on your partner's response; whatever that may be. Vivian says that you should use your feminine seductive arts to ply your partner into seeing you as submissive and demure; dressing and acting the part before and during the discussion where you ask your partner to be your spanking partner. In a way, it comes off as she is saying you should manipulate the situation to get what you want by using your feminine mystique and then being direct about what you want because that's what guys like.
Now, I don't have experience with asking a partner to spank me that wasn't already interested, but to me, this sounds a little backward. Essentially I see this as luring the man into your 'trap' and then confronting them with some huge secret and expecting them to respond positively to it. I don't know about you, but if I followed her directions specifically, I'd have a confused man on my hands AND probably no hope of a spanking partner.
Really, my advice would be to definitely set a date to have this revealing conversation, but be honest and open about it when the time comes. There is no need to try to show your man that you are submissive and pliant and your ass is ripe for spanking as she suggests. But, that's just me.
The rest of the book helps you prepare and receive your first spanking. It does a wonderful job going through the possible reactions you can have the first spanking you get, as well as the triggers you could awaken and how to deal with them. I love how she makes sure you understand that unlike your fantasy spankings, these hurt. It's something that a lot of people just don't realize till it's happening and then you react poorly.
I'd highly recommend this book just for the last 2 chapters alone. You can definitely get something out of this book even if you are already in a spanking relationship. She also has a chapter on how to get more from your spanking experience and is worth reading even if you've been exploring spanking for years. I loved it.
Overall, I think it's a decent book for someone who needs a way to share their spanking secret with their partner in hopes of finding a spanking partner in them. If you would like help talking to your partner about your spanking interests, get this book.
