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.

Oh, those swoon-worthy phrases…

You all know what I mean. Those spanking-related phrases that push our buttons; we’ve talked about them a lot, so that’s not what this post is about. It’s about a particular instance of one that shot my nerve endings into overdrive.

As a proofreader/copyeditor, I don’t choose what I work on. I read what’s given to me and I make it as perfect as I can. In my thirty-five years of doing this, I’ve read quite the spectrum of subject matter. And lucky me, I seem to have found my niche lately: spanking/fetish erotica. I work on a whole lot of that. Therefore, I see a broad range of kink and types of play. Some of it resonates. Some of it doesn’t. We’re all so different.

But every now and then, I read something that slams into my kinky reflexes so hard, I squirm in my desk chair. I don’t want to seem like I’m playing favorites, so I am not going to reveal the author or the book, just quote a snippet.

The hero has just ordered the heroine to lie on the bed for a punishment:

Her: I don’t want to.
Him: I didn’t ask if you want to. I told you to do it. NOW.

I can’t explain why any more than I can explain any of this kink stuff, but that little bit right there got me so hot and bothered, I had to take a work break, if you get my drift. (I know, I know, TMI. But hey, just one more of the joys of working at home.) 😀

Now, from the sublime to the ridiculous, a few search phrases I found for my blog.

how spanking models work

Hard, honey. Really hard.

my parents left and this guy from school spanked me

Well, good for you. And I’m supposed to do exactly what with this information?

spanking sarah bright pics

I am not Sarah Bright. I look nothing like Sarah Bright. Sarah Bright is a top. Why does Google delude this poor hapless searcher by directing them to my blog?

speeding in my house earns you a spanking

You must have one hell of a huge house to be able to drive a car in it.

braces pigtails bows pajamas spanking

OK… aside from the obvious last word, how the @#$% does any of this lead to me?? I haven’t worn pigtails since I was twelve and I got my braces off when I was thirteen. I’ve never worn bows; not that I can recall, anyway. Pajamas? Yes, I wear those. I don’t think I’ve ever been spanked in them, though. So what was this person doing, just throwing out a bunch of Little terms to see what came up? Sure must have been disappointed when he/she saw me!

Anyway. Back to work for me, and then off to John’s. I think we’re going to have a more peaceful weekend than the last one was. Last Friday, John’s refrigerator, garage door opener, and one of his crowns all broke. We spent the weekend buying ice and putting buckets of it in the fridge to keep the food cold. He managed to fix the garage door himself. And he was able to get emergency appointments for both the tooth and the fridge on Monday, taking half a day off. Whew. So if this weekend is uneventful, neither one of us will complain.

Have a great weekend, y’all. And to my American friends, please have a safe and happy July 4th. EDIT: Also to my up North pals, happy Canada Day!

    Hey Erica,

    You forgot about your Canadian friends here in the North. They have a long weekend too, just like you. Our holiday is today, Friday 1 July. Canada of course being a bit younger, but we’ll be 150 next year. So don’t forget.




  2. Have a great weekend! 🙂


  3. MrJ — thank you very much.

    What a ridiculously bad stretch of circumstances for John!
    And MY GOD! The illiteracy among spanking blog commenters/Facebook posters is becoming an out of control epidemic. I wonder if some do it out of some goofy needy sense of humor validation to get a rise out of those who get irritated by poor writing?

    P.S. In the next few days after my photo is available I will send you a private email detailing the OUTSTANDING Pat Benatar/Neil Giraldo concert last night. I met him privately first. During our misc. topic conversation I found myself playfully responding not once…but TWICE, “Yes Sir!” 🙂


  5. Erica, I loved the “speeding in my house” one. I can see him zipping around the house in a tiny Smart car.

    Happy Independence Day!



  6. Erica. I to have ‘spanking phrases that turn me on. One such phrase is “I am going to take your panties down, and cane that voluptuous bare bottom of yours”.. By the way you can see what Stratford- on-Avon looks like by finding that town on “YOU TUBE. There are several videos that show Shakespeare’s birthplace residence.

    Are you sure it wasn’t “sarah brightman” in the search?

    Just one hit from my query.
    Has the Goog lost its magic?
    I am pumping my bone
    in the phone’s glow.
    The futile keywords collect on the screen.
    My sad lips begin to moan.

    Spare me spanking imposters.
    I can smile at the old days.
    You were findable then.
    I remember
    the search that brought you to me.
    Let the mem’ry live again.


  9. Hermione — right? I know what he meant, but it was phrased awkwardly.

    Six — we all have them, I guess.

    Richard — man meat! Yeah, there’s more than enough of that online everywhere…

    Anonymous — nope, positive, it was Bright. And nicely done. 🙂
