p>Spanking Romance Reviews is pleased to welcome Angela Sargenti today to talk about spanking fiction and her book So Spankable!
Renee Rose: What’s your preference in fiction…domestic discipline or erotic spanking? Why?
Angela Sargenti: I love them both, but I probably lean toward domestic discipline. It’s just fun to read, and all those calm, stern men giving lectures as they punish just does something to me.
Renee Rose: Do you see a difference between spanking fiction and BDSM? What is it?
Angela Sargenti: I do think there’s a difference between spanking fiction and BDSM. It’s true that there’s quite a bit of overlap between the two genres, but to me, the term BDSM implies the more hardcore stuff, which can scare some people away from reading spanking erotica/romance. I mean, there’s a vast difference between a simple OTK and being chained to the ceiling of a dungeon taking a bullwhipping.
Renee Rose: Tell us about your current release.
Angela Sargenti: My current release is So Spankable! published by House of Erotica. It’s my third book with them, and like the others, is a collection of short stories. Although there are serious moments in all three stories, the overall mood is one of playfulness and romance. For instance, Vince in “The Art of Forgiveness” takes Miranda down to the Water Lily room at his museum to spank her there, because he knows she loves the paintings. He’s struggling with his sexual identity and takes it out on her, but it helps him work through his feelings so they can come to terms with their relationship
Renee Rose: When you’re not writing, what else do you like to do?
Angela Sargenti: I love to watch baseball and am a big fan of the Oakland A’s. I also have a lot of hobbies. I’m currently making myself a Steampunk outfit. I also have a huge dollhouse I’m trying to fix up, which includes a mad scientist’s lab and an attic where two lovers meet clandestinely to dance to Victrola music. I want it to be all Goth and romantic, but I’m very far from being done.
Renee Rose: I am in a spanking relationship, but it’s all for fun (although I do like it quite hard.)
Angela Sargenti: I’d flip that second question around and say I use my imagination to come up with stuff to use in real life. Not everything, though. I write about menage and cheating a lot, but we’re totally monogamous. It’s just fun to try to figure out what makes people tick.
Renee Rose: What is your favorite spanking implement?
Renee Rose: Spanking is a hot topic that pushes people’s buttons. They either like it or they don’t. What do you think makes it hot, both positive and negative?
Angela Sargenti: I have no idea what makes it hot. It just is.

So Spankable Excerpts
The Art of Forgiveness
By the time he marched me out to one of the exhibit halls in just my stockings and heels I was over it, over worrying who might see me, even when we had to pass through three or four other halls to get to the right one. He steered me to the left and I gasped as we turned the corner.
“The Water Lily room?”
I glanced at him, but he was busy fighting off a grin. He walked me over to a big solid bench made of cool, smooth wood and he pulled off his belt and sat down.
“Come on. Get over my lap.”
He started warming me up by hand, and when you’re a dancer you learn to block out a lot of pain, so this was nothing to me. The mini spotlights from the track lighting focused right on our little bench and I felt like I was onstage again at last, that this was all part of a scene, a beautiful, surreal scene.
I almost heard the applause of the audience and I said, “You won’t give a damn about ballerina porn when I get through with you. You’ll be glad when you see it. You’ll want to see it then. You’ll even want to do it.”
Those Little Tricks of Life
“Take my belt to Sally,” he told me. “You bust her ass good with my belt.”
I shook my head.
“Eddie, you ain’t even got no belt,” I told him.
“Yes I do. I wore it special.”
He pulled up his shirt to show me and sure enough, he had a thin little black leather belt threaded through the loops. He pulled it off and handed it to me, eager for some action.
“What do you want me to whip her for, Eddie?”
“What are you, some kind of method actress or something? Just beat her ass, for chrissakes. For the fun of it.”
“What kind of new toy did you get?” I ask. “You can go get it if you want.”
Adam helps me up and smacks my butt for good measure.
“You go get it,” he tells me. “It’s in the top drawer of my nightstand. I think I want you to top me now.”
I squeal a little, all giddy with excitement because he hardly ever wants me to punish him. I run up the stairs and find his new toy, a nice short leather strap embossed with hearts.
When I come back, he’s already bent pants-down over the back of the couch.
“I tried it out on my leg the day I got it,” he tells me. “It leaves cute little heart-shaped welts.”
I rub his bottom before I get started and say, “Let’s see if it leaves cute little heart-shaped bruises, too. Adam Sanger, you’ve been a very naughty boy.”
