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.

Erica’s party rules


So, the Shadow Lane party in Vegas is upon us in a little over a week, and FetLife is all a-flurry with introductions and networking and pre-party information. All good. Also prevalent is the usual list of behaviors and suggestions for having a good party, for what to do/what not to do, etc. All very good. Party veterans take the time to share their tips for how to maximize the party experience, what pitfalls to avoid, what is considered good spank-fest etiquette (and what isn’t), and so forth. I have done this myself.

However, this year, I am short on time and on patience. Between the stress of dealing with fraudulent activity on my checking account, the extreme heat, the stock market, way too many people acting like dicks on FetLife, and fretting about/missing Steve, I’m simply not my usual benevolent self.

(Taking a pause while you all choke on your beverages.)

Therefore, I am simplifying. Want more detailed tips? There are many to be found, and I suggest you read any and all you can. And please don’t take me too seriously, because I’m doing this with tongue firmly embedded in face cheek. But really, no matter what you read, it all boils down to Three Simple Rules.

  1. Be nice (polite, warm, friendly, insert your favorite positive word here).
  2. Don’t be a douche.
  3. If you really don’t know the difference between being nice et al. and being a douche, then try this: If what you’re doing isn’t working for you, try the opposite.

So there you have it, kids. Short and to the point, didn’t make your eyes glaze over, didn’t make you feel like you have to read an Emily Post tome on etiquette. Just remember this: At a spanking party, masochism is welcome. Massengill is not.


(And seriously — have a good time. If you see me there, do say hello; I’ll be nice, I promise. πŸ™‚ )

    Erica, I hope you are spanked so much and so often, worries leave your head for awhile! Seriously, have a great time. Someday I may be brave enough to attend.

    My best to Steve on a continued recovery.


  5. Six — ha!

    KB — I certainly hope so.

    Don — will do my best!

    CarolBeth — thanks. His life has been turned upside down, but he’s rolling with it.

    So in other words if someone approaches you smelling like vinegar, you’ll run away? πŸ™‚


  7. Anonymous — hmm. Well, I can think of worse things they could smell like, I reckon. πŸ˜‰


  8. I think there’s a little bit of douche in all of us, but I try to avoid it every chance I get.

    Have a great time and strive to leave your troubles at home. Sadly, they’ll be there when you return.

    A tip of the cap to your friend Six for a witty comment but masturbate is the proper spelling. As Shakespeare said, “Ah, there’s the rub!”

    Sorry, but I’ve done my share of proof reading too.

  10. Mouse — I made a promise long ago that I would never correct my friends’ or my commenters’ spelling (unless they ask me to), lest I discourage them from communicating with me — but yup, you’re right!

    Of course, the CHoS types are an exception. πŸ˜‰

    Great party advice! I’m a lurker and fortunately have been at parties that you are also at and you are the nicest and most remarkabl person I’ve ever met! We don’t know each other but maybe someday, I’m usually on a family vacation during the SL September party so please remember you probably have 1000’s of lurkers waiting to enjoy your party report!
