Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

Big Bang, big backache

Unless you’ve been completely off all social media for the past several hours, you’ve no doubt heard there was an OTK spanking on CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” last night.

I won’t drive the details into the ground, as it’s already been discussed on FetLife and Twitter, and handled beautifully on several blogs, including Spanked, Not Silenced and The Spanking Blog. The latter even transcribed all the dialogue during the scene. What I want to add is how much I @#$%ing LOVED this scene!

For those who know me, you know I’m extremely picky about mainstream spanking scenes, and most of the TV scenes that others go ga-ga over make me cringe. I hated the “Californication” spanking scenes, for example. And I’m probably the only person in the scene who found fault with the OTK spanking scene on “Weeds.” (Come on! He flapped his arm up and down like a demented marionette, and hit the same spot over and over.) And don’t get me started on that ridiculous hairbrushing scene from “Ally McBeal.”

You probably do need to be a fan of BBT to fully appreciate last night’s scene, because it played so perfectly into the characters of Sheldon and Amy. I confess, I am a BBT nut. I love the quirky characters, the writing, the sheer brilliance and originality. I am such a BBT nerd, I actually entered an online contest yesterday, writing a second verse to “Soft Kitty.” (Fans of the show will know what I’m talking about.) So this scene was simply a bit of icing on a favorite cake.

However, I think even those who aren’t familiar with the show can enjoy the scene, because they handled it so deliciously. Whoever wrote that has to be a spanko, or at least be familiar with spankos. And Mayim Bialik, who plays Amy, nailed the reactions and facial expressions perfectly.

Find it and check it out, if you missed it! The title of the episode is “The Fish Guts Displacement” (don’t ask; it has to do with another subplot, which was also hilarious).

EDIT: Kaelah found a wonderful comprehensive clip of the scene and posted it on her blog — go watch it here.

In other news… I seem to have sprained/strained my lower back somehow. I’m not unfamiliar with back pain, having been diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 12. I have this one weak spot on the lower left side, and whenever I have a “back attack,” that’s where the pain goes. It’s been years since I’ve had one, and I always forget just how freaking uncomfortable it is.

I don’t like this. It’s really putting a crimp in my festive holiday attitude. (yes, the sarcasm is dripping) I’m doing everything I know to do — stretching, icing, Advil, light exercise. I did a modified workout Wednesday and last night, because one of the worst things you can do for back pain is stop activity and let everything stiffen up. But after all is said and done, all I can do is wait it out and hope it feels better soon.

Two things of note: 1. I’m grateful this isn’t happening anywhere near the time of a spanking party, and 2. This better damn well be better by Monday. I need my Mr. D fix.

I’ve been reading on FetLife and blogs and so forth about all these spanko gatherings, large and small, and looking at endless quantities of photos, and I admit, I’m feeling grumpy and jealous. I still wonder how people can afford to travel as much as they do, and I so envy all the camaraderie and sharing and socializing. And even I can see the irony in that — since when am I into socializing?? But yeah, when it’s spanko socializing, it’s different. I certainly don’t begrudge my friends their fun. I just wish I could be in on it more often than once or twice a year.

So while others have their wonderful adventures, Mr. D’s Wild Ride is my weekly adventure. And I crave it, and him, like crazy. So this damned back of mine better cooperate.

Have a great weekend, y’all.

  1. You mean there are people who don't watch BBT? I'm shocked. Perhaps it's because they identify a little too much with Wolowitz. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. I would suspect the SoCal spanking community would be quite busy, allowing you to attend smaller private and semi-public gatherings. Is that not the case?

  4. Anonymous — in Los Angeles County, there is a whole lot of BDSM (The Lair, Threshold, Sanctuary, etc.), but spanking groups? Not so much. And the couple of munches/small groups that I know of… well… not my cup of tea, let's just put it that way.So CA used to be teeming with spanko activity years ago, when the Shadow Lane folks still lived here. But it kinda went away.

  5. I nearly died watching Big Bang last night! I actually paused the dvr and screamed for my husband to come down the stairs. That was just when he brought it up. I never dreamed they would actually show Amy going over Sheldon's knee and reacting. Mayim's Amy luring it out of Sheldon was too cute and fit perfect with the whole vapor rub / bathing too. I just hope this doesn't bring out all the "abuse" screamers. I saw it as cute and mutual, but perhaps that is because I get it. Sheldon being clueless just made it more adorable.

  6. Kat — you know, I really don't see how anyone, even the most rabid anti-CP folks, could scream "abuse" at this scene. It was done so sweetly and there wasn't an iota of non-consent about it. I was waiting for Amy to go "purr, purr, purr." ;-D

  7. You do have to admit that the belt over the bar scene in Weeds was hot though! I've watched that more than a few times on YouTube. 😀 This scene was really good because she DID like it, and had the reaction that most of US would've had, even while pretending that it's supposed to be punishment. LOL

  8. Jen — absolutely, you're right. That belting in the bar was smoking. "You don't listen, do you." Brrrr. But the OTK scene? Meh. Hot as Demian Bichir is (and that's damn hot), he can't spank.

  9. Like you, Erica, I am a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory and I found the scene (which of course wasn't shown on German TV but is now on YouTube) totally awesome. It made me grin from ear to ear. I've just published a whole post about Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler and their kinky appeal for me. :-)I hope your back will get better very soon!

  14. I am not a fan of BBT but did see the clip. It was well done. I hope your back gets feeling better! And I agree about the parties. I wish I had the money and time off to leave work whenever I wanted to go to everything too. Spanko socializing is so much more fun than regular socializing, even when there's no spanking going on.

  15. I have never watched BBT but am totally amazed that they would show a complete spanking scene on one of the mainstream networks. I read the transcript on Spanking Spot, and now Chross has the clip up. Amy is SO nerdy-looking!Hope your back is better by Monday.Hugs,Hermione

  17. Lea — your last sentence expressed it perfectly. It's not just about the spanking. It's about that special camaraderie.Hermione — when you see that actress on a talk show, she looks completely different. They definitely "frump" her up. I suppose they're trying to portray a socially awkward neurobiologist. :-)Six — thank you, and same to you. 🙂

  18. You know, I was in a situation where I saw the pilot episode about five times and initially didn't like it.. but in succeeding episodes they won me over! Those kids are such brilliant actors, bringing such delightful life to the BBT characters. I love Amy's "Maybe you should spank me harder" face, and Sheldon's "Well maybe I will!" response. And Erica, when she turned on the music so as not to disturb the neighbor, I thought of youuuu!All that aside, I hope your back is better! Few things feel so bad!! Gentle vicarious hugs!

  20. Erica,I live with back pain and have for 10 plus years, yes lots of Alleve for me and tons of stretching. Also can suggest, but it is messy, hot wet towels on your back area, works wonders. Also before you execise, I always do a hot towel, follow quickly by a cold one! Always ice after you work out as well. Yes it sucks.I don't see much mainstream tv and have been off line but thanks for the tip. Mainstream spankings are usually not well done and a tad boring if not gratitous. Alley McBeal was the most disappointing as the build up was really well done.Thanks, take care.AlwaysRon

  21. I sympathize with not getting to gatherings and also wonder how people travel so much. Between being on a budget and and not having time to travel very far, I never make it to anything outside of NYC. It's funny, there is a TON of activity in NYC for more general BDSM players, but all the spanking oriented groups have the same members. Ironically, the members come from all over the country and there are still a lot of the same faces in each group. I don't particularly care for that, it seems to have the potential to breed a small town mentality. It could be nice if everyone was super awesome and always got along (I hear positive things from most of the NYC spanko crowd online, thankfully), or it could be super blah if someone started drama (I also know of a very popular bad apple, and it only takes one to start shit). In any case, spanking becoming more mainstreamed, in my opinion, provides a better environment for more people to explore in. Perhaps a few curious vanillas will take it to the next level. I am glad to see such a cute scene on a mainstream show.The spanko crowd could use more members everywhere. The more the merrier, after all. Also, awkward glasses girls usually are usually super kinky. 😀 My favorite part, besides Sheldon ordering Amy over his lap, was when she looked at him in a combination of disbelief and joy, and said, "You want to SPANK me?!?" Priceless!-Adriane, as awkward a glasses girl as ever existed.

  22. Also, I agree that the Ally McBeal hair bush scene sucked, and I really like the hair brush so it was a disappointment then and now.

  23. Dave — I didn't start watching the show until it had been on for a couple of years (but I caught up with it all via the plethora of stations showing reruns). I love that Jim Parsons has won two Emmys for playing Sheldon. :-)MrJ — I'm sorry… practiced what?Ron — I've never tried Aleve. You're the second person to recommend it, so perhaps I'll try it. (I'm an Advil girl.) And you're right; the buildup to the Ally McBeal spanking was fun. I loved the conversation Nelle had with Ling about it, before it happened. ("Everyone knows that the bottom has the control.")Adriane — all the good spanking stuff seems to be on your coast these days! The MSA, Delco Spankos, SSNY, etc. Boardwalk Badness is in Jersey, not far from you. But it's true, all scenes have their drama, BS and bad apples (and I know of a New York one as well!).p.s. I wear glasses, too. 🙂
