Many people like being spanked. For some, this soothes a psychological reflection on the past when they were children. For others, it is just plain erotic. Spanking is usually light and ritualistic, but can be severe enough to break the skin and cause bruising in extreme BDSM play. One common scenario is that a woman has her pants pulled down and is laid face down on her “daddy’s” lap, at which point she receives a spanking on her butt.
Some men prefer spankings consisting of occasional slaps while they are having intercourse. Others like to have their balls or even their penis mildly spanked.
