I’ve spent the last week trying to figure out how to bridge a continuity gap in four different stories. Hence the lack of any updates. Also having the flu doesn’t really help the creative juices either. I guess juices would be a bad word to use right now.
On a different note, I have noticed the recent influence of spanking and spanking related innuendo in mainstream entertainment. Last night, for example, CBS’s 2 Broke Girls episode was titled “And the Kitty Kitty Spank Spank.” During the episode there were multiple instances were main characters were playfully spanked, then verbally acknowledge liking it in the adult way.
Has adult spanking came so far that it is socially accepted?
While the spankings portrayed in the show are more playful swats on the upper behind region, the premise is still there. The show is also has one of the highest ratings among sitcoms in the US.
I always like the old Italian mafia phrase when referencing the spanking subculture; “Its this thing we do.” It makes it seem slightly elusive, mystical and special all at the same time. It’s like a club that welcomes everyone to join, but some people clearly do not fit in. This creates the sense of community. I question whether such proliferation of spanking is going to be a good thing in the long run.
Though this could just be the nitequil speaking. Ah, nitequil 🙂
