Only five letters, just one syllable, yet having a tremendous impact on so many. I have looked up this word in dictionaries, thesauri, and encyclopedias, usually finding text that resembles that above, no pictures or illustrations. Then along came the internet, and I have googled that word and its derivative a few times. I thought I was unusual but if you check Google trends searches based on that silly little word have increased 50% from 2007 to 2010. So I’m not the only one! It seems to me that there is more spanking material than ever available on the net. There could be more of us or more of us have found common ground and acceptance.
There was some consensus among those that added to the discussion that the interest in spanking started very young. Was it hard-wired or environmental? Well modern spankophiles can point to many examples of spanking in modern media and that could be a valid argument if spanking and corporal punishment was only a modern phenomenon. It seems that these practices are very old indeed.
The book The Naked Ape by Desmond Morris even expressed the idea that breasts were substitute buttocks. The book proposed that this was an evolutionary attempt to coax the male into face to face coitus and thereby cementing the relationship between partners to encourage the male to stick around for child rearing. I may be mistaken but I think that he would classify buttocks as a primary sexual organs and breasts as secondary sexual organs. It would seem to me that he does have a point. Being topless does seem to have less taboo than a bare bottom. I only bring this up because a reddened bottom I find very appealing and spanking is not a substitute for sex but boy what a way to get the juices flowing.

There seem to be more women admitting being spankophiles and reveling in it. I saw very few women in the places that I bought those magazines and videos, but now they can view such material in their own homes. Whether bottom or top, spanking is not limited to men alone.
