In today’s "ewwwww" file…
How many times have we seen a spanking video or clip where a flaky tenant doesn’t make rent, and the landlord handles the situation with a spanking? Apparently in Bumfu–er, Waynesville, Ohio, this happened for real.

(Sorry — for whatever reason, I can’t get this to post as a link. Copy and paste it into your browser.)
In short, a 29-year-old male tenant was behind in his rent $2800, so the 58-year-old landlord told him, “If you’re going to act like a child, I’m going to treat you like one.” And then subjected him to four swats with his belt. (It doesn’t say so in this article, but I read elsewhere that it was bare bottom.) The tenant complied because he said he was scared and “just wanted to get it over with.” Now he’s taking the landlord to court.
OK, I’m having two separate reactions here. As a spanko, I admit I couldn’t help thinking, “Jeez — four measly belt strikes in exchange for a $2800 debt? Bring it! Where do I sign on?” That’s nearly three months’ rent for me.
However, what’s hot in fantasy isn’t necessarily so in reality. Aside from the bit of spanko titillation, my reaction is “Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww, gross!”
And no, before any accusations of such come my way, it’s not because it’s M/M. I’d be equally skeeved had the tenant been a woman.
Granted, in the videos, this type of scenario is hot as hell. But in reality? Blech. If a tenant is irresponsible, a landlord should handle it legally. Warnings, written notice to pay or quit, eviction. You don’t degrade a grown man or woman because they owe you money. And really, is this landlord so wealthy that he can afford to let $2800 go in exchange for a few swats at a young man’s bare butt? What a perv!
I wonder how much more skeeved I am by this because I’m a spanko. I suppose the average vanilla might find this story mildly shocking, but somewhat amusing. Me? I’m outraged that what I love is being used so improperly.
What do you guys think? I’m interested in hearing.
Have a good weekend, y’all.
