The future of S/M (hoisted from comments)

23 October 2009

rm linked to a NYT article on how shouting is the new spanking, i.e., parents who diligently avoid hitting their kids are feeling guilty that they can’t also keep from yelling at them.

One of her commenters wondered if, now that spanking children is less common, the next generation of adults will be less likely to have a kink for being spanked.

This led me to imagine an S/M scene where the dom says, with a cold and stern voice, “I’m going to count to three, and by the time I reach three, you had better be naked, or there will be consequences….”

(That “one minute per year of age” rule for time-out really sucks when you’re 35 years old, doesn’t it?)
