I firmly believe that to be a complete spanker it’s important to be on the receiving end and fully experience what that feels like. Everyone does respond differently but being bent over the appropriate lap, bare buns up and ready for the firm application of hairbrush or paddle. Alternately for the tenderfoot butt nervously waiting for the first of many stinging slaps, perhaps with some small apprehension, to know what a sore behind feels like and the process of getting there. If you are going to spank someone you really have got to be spanked soundly to empathize with your partner.
I could be wrong being a greedy thing myself, needing to be stroked and poked and slapped in the right places. I personally enjoy a good hiding and have found that I am keyed up for a least a few days afterward, especially enjoying the lingering after effects. Taking all that into consideration I have found myself dragging my feet and reluctant to place myself in that vulnerable state anyway, besides I was always taught it was better to give than receive, much easier to spank than be spanked.
Sometimes you just have got to throw caution to the wind and put yer ass on the line.
