Sexual spanking and DD in As Natural As Breathing – Guest post by Thianna D

There are many ways one can write spanking (though we, as writers, do tend to criss-cross two of them quite often.) Sexual spanking and domestic discipline are the two I write about in my new book As Natural As Breathing. This book is the first in a series about two amazing men and the beginning of their relationship.

Logan, one of our two heroes, was brought up in a domestic discipline home. So, not only was he familiar with and accepting of spanking as discipline, but after he entered college, he accepted that spanking was a fetish for him and as a sexual top; there was nothing he loved more than to paint an ass a bright red. Also, he was a member of a very close, very loving family and he understood that much of that was based on the DD principles his parents put in place before he was born. Knowing that, he fully intends to have the same kind of relationship with the man he settles down with.


Christian knew nothing of domestic discipline or spanking – except for the fact he craved spanking as long as he could remember – and while he was not sure of the DD side of things, once he and Logan started down their fetish side, he was more than happy to follow Logan’s lead. After all, when a wonderful man could give him that much pleasure and knew so much more than Christian did, he was willing to go wherever Logan led…well, almost.

In this excerpt (I’ve giving you an extra-long one today), Logan has taken Christian into his first adult store and they are looking at spanking implements. Logan does a little teaching while he introduces his partner to the plethora of possibilities.

Christian’s mouth dropped open as toys of every make and size appeared before his eyes. “Holy fuck,” he muttered. His eyes alighted on the sexy outfits and he snickered. “I’m not interested in wearing any of those.” He waved at a slutty nurse uniform.

Logan smirked. “Oh, I don’t know. Your cock would stick out nicely from the bottom.”

“Shut it,” Christian snickered, slapping him on the arm as he continued walking through the store.

The impact toys drew Christian’s attention and they walked over and began to go through them. He was woefully uninformed about each item, so Logan educated him as to how each implem

ent might feel. “For instance, in the canes there are three main types. Wood, wood covered in leather, and acrylic. The thin bendy wooden ones like this,” he pulled out a bamboo cane, “Will hurt like fuck and leave a welt if hit hard enough. The leather doesn’t hurt as badly as just the wood, but it still has bend in it, so the snap will sting. The acrylic has no give so it will sting less, but you will feel it for longer.”

He put them back and picked up a couple paddles. “Make of the paddle does not make as much difference as density and circumference. The larger the item, the larger the area it will hit, and it will actually hurt less at the moment of impact. Air resistance,” he explained at Christian’s confused look. “If you grab

 a paddle like this…” He held up an aluminum one with tons of holes. “It will sting and burn like crazy because there is little air resistance.” He picked up a paddle that resembled a fly swatter. “Sting, sting, sting because of no air resistance at all.”

“How did you learn so much? Besides what your dad told you, I mean.”

Grinning, Logan picked up a large black leather paddle. “Dad gave me some great advice when I told him that spanking was more than just punishment for me, that it had become a major fetish. He said I should test anything I wanted to use on someone else on myself first just to know how it basically felt. Thi

s,” he slapped it on his hand, creating a very nice sound across the room, “is one of my favorites. It has a great sound, has tons of residual ache and heats up the skin nicely.” He handed it to Christian to check out. “Depending on the pain threshold of the one receiving the spanking, you can mix and match some of the implements to increase the pain or to just create such a mixture of sensations that they fly.”

“Fly?” Confusion crossed Christian’s face.

“People call it different things. In the BDSM world, it’s called subspace. Basically, the endorphins brought on by the pain and pleasure overload the bottom a bit and they float in a space where they are quite happy. Most of the bottoms I know who aren’t masochists live for it.”

“What do the masochistic bottoms live for?”

“The ultimate pain.”

“I don’t think I wanted to know that,” Christian admitted, turning a little green.

Book Description:

As Natural As Breathing

Length: Novel

Genre: Gay Spanking Romance

For Christian Darringer, life isn’t worth living. Just back from the Middle East; scarred and with permanent damage to one leg, he does not think anyone will want him for anything. Meeting a gorgeous man he finds himself thinking about constantly is not in his plans. Pulled toward the startling younger man with striking blue eyes, he begins to question a lot of things – especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan who is full of life and joy, he finds himself head over heels in love.

Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends and security. The only thing missing is finding the love of his life, a love that is just like his parents’. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help this sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants but his interest in spanking became a fetish and when Christian admits that he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.

Just as everything begins for them, Christian’s past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. If it weren’t for Logan’s support, he might fold; but with the love of one amazing man, Christian finds that living his life rather than just existing is as natural as breathing.

For Thianna D, reading and writing are as important as breathing and far more important than math or science. A storyteller from the time she could speak, she was always making up characters as a kid. As a teenager that turned to sci-fi and fantasy, as an adult to romance. It wasn’t until her fourth decade that she began writing erotic scenes within her stories.

Writing M/M came naturally to her; she wrote her first tale before ever having read one. “There is something about the amazing dynamic between two strong men falling in love and defeating anything thrown at them.” While she had written several BDSM stories involving men, As Natural As Breathing was the first full-length novel involving domestic discipline.
