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.

Jillian’s Latest, and Mine Too

Many of you are aware that the uber-talented Jillian Keenan has her own YouTube channel, and has been posting videos about our favorite fetish, spanking. There is no actual spanking in these videos, but they’re not necessary, because the content is rich and funny and thought-provoking, and there’s something for everyone. Sometimes Jillian appears in these by herself; other times she has guests appear. Before Covid struck, she had many videos stocked up with other people in them. She does a great job of editing; the videos have a fully professional feel to them.

A couple of months or so ago (I’ve lost track of time this year), Jillian contacted me and asked if I’d like to contribute to a compilation video she was putting together of various spanking folks talking about how to handle play (or the lack thereof) during the pandemic. She said it could be very simple, just a quick video on my phone. I happily agreed. I was thrilled to be included. Also, it gave me an excuse to put on makeup, something I hadn’t done since when, February? Also, I’d just managed to get my hair cut, in between times the salons were shut down, so I had good hair. Vanity, thy name is Erica.

I shot it and sent it off; she let me know she got it and that she was very happy with it. I figured she had to collect all the other contributions and edit them together, so it might be a while.

Well, guess what — it went up this past weekend! John and I watched on Saturday. She got a wonderful collection of spankos together for this, from all over the world (Ariel Anderssen, Princess Kelley and Stephen Lewis, Pandora/Blake, Madame Samantha B, Pharaoh, Miss Rachel and Cassidy Lau), and what she did with all the bits of film was incredible. I thought she was just going to show us in turn, doing our spiel, but she cut us all together, going back and forth, taking turns — she did it in a way that made it look like we were all having one big conversation with one another. It was awesome! In fact, she ended up with so much material, she decided to make a Part 2. I think she used enough of my footage in Part 1 that I won’t be in the second one, but who knows.

Anyway, here tis:

Please leave her a nice comment if you liked this! And give a watch to her other videos if you haven’t already. She has many. And if you wish to support her efforts and become one of her patrons, that’s an option as well.

In other news, I am officially in hell. We’ve had a record-breaking heat wave here in So. CA, and the power companies have been stretched to the max. It hit 114-115 both days at John’s house; his A/C is pretty strong, but we ran it day and night. It felt like an inferno outside. And I was scared that any minute, we’d have one of those rolling blackouts. Yeah, global warming is a hoax, my ass.

Yesterday when we went to pick up breakfast, my car nearly overheated. We got back, John looked under the hood, said all looked okay and it was probably just the extreme heat and the overload of blasting the A/C. I was still really nervous though, and anxious to get the drive home over with. John’s A/C was still working, but the heat had driven ants into his bathroom, which was swarming with them. He put out traps, but it takes a while for them to take effect.

I drove home, and sure enough, the car was fine. I didn’t blast the A/C this time, just halfway instead of full blast, and the temp gauge stayed squarely in the middle. I got my groceries and was so relieved when I got home. Ah, I thought. Now I hunker down, work, stay indoors and cool until this damned heat breaks.

Until I opened the door to my apartment and was not greeted with that welcome gust of cold air. Oh, no. No, no, no…

Yep. Our building’s A/C crapped out. And there’s nothing that can be done until at least Tuesday because of the holiday. I’m sure the demands for A/C repair are through the roof with this heat wave.

Swell. My apartment was 85 degrees. People said “Go back to John’s.” But I didn’t want to. I was afraid to keep pushing my luck, driving in this heat. Plus there were those damned ants. And his lack of WiFi, his glacial internet speed — I can visit fine, but I can’t get anything done there. Besides — guess what? Yup, he had a rolling blackout last night. Just for a couple of hours, but still.

What could I do? Nothing. So, since yesterday afternoon, this has been my new normal. I have several fans going. I have a spray bottle on my work table and I keep spritzing myself with water every few minutes. No, I’m not wearing any clothes. The lights are all turned off. I’m drinking cold water. I filled my bathtub with cold water and every now and then, I go take a dunk in it. Last night, I slept with two frozen bottles of water inside socks in my bed. And so it goes. As long as my power holds out, I will get through it. If it goes out, then I’m screwed. But hopefully it won’t. It hasn’t so far.

Goddammit. We were supposed to be in Vegas this weekend, having an altogether different kind of hot time. (sigh) Screw you, Covid. (And here’s the irony; Vegas would have actually been cooler!) To add insult to injury, I have two large, madly itching welts on my right leg. Ant bites??

This too shall pass. Please send all your ice-cold vibes.

    I know that you are the hottest but this is ridiculous. I must admit to wishing that I was the fly on the wall of your apartment if you’re fighting the heat in the altogether 🥵

  2. I was excited to recognize you on there! I love Jillian’s videos… it’s neat to see the different people I follow online intersect. Did you get to use your new computer equipment or was it just a phone video you sent on?

    I hope you’re able to get your air conditioning fixed soon! We’ve had floods here today… it rained non-stop from about 4 am until sundown, and it’s supposed to start again tonight. Honestly I think I do prefer that to a heat wave, but it’s not ideal.

  3. Well, you’ve taken all your clothes off. Just pretend you’ve been spanked and see if your bottom is hot. See? There’s a sunny side to everything!

    (Hope normal comes back soon.)

  4. Xen — nope, it was just my Smartphone. Glad you enjoyed it!
    I guess any weather extreme can be a pain. One of my dearest friends had to deal with Hurricane Laura and it was so not fun.

    Rich — ha!! Nope! Wrong kind of heat!

    I absolutely LOVE Jillian Keenan, and I admire her greatly for coming out as a spanko in, of all places, The New York Times! She’s so honest, so candid, and so articulate. I sent her an email back in 2014 to tell her so and to congratulate her on her piece in The Times, and she was gracious enough to reply.

    I love the video she produced, and your part in it, Erica. I may share that with a young spanko correspondent I know who is rather confused and conflicted about her interest in the kink and that feeling we’ve all probably had at one time or another — that we’re alone in these interests. I consider Jillian’s video to be a really cool public service announcement for spankos everywhere.

    I’m glad your AC is back on. And that your apartment isn’t actually on fire. Thanks for another excellent installment on your blog!

  6. I’ll certainly be watching this later. I love Jillian Keenan’s work for the same reason I love to read your blog (to the extent that this is the scond time I’ve ever responded to a spanking related blog and the first time was yours, too).

    I have no time these for the “tee-hee follow my naughty schoolgirl adventures” type of blogs. But actual grown up thoughts from real people who juggle the everyday challenge of real life while shining a light on this kink of ours really resonates with me. It helps that you’re both professional writers too 😉

    Reading about Jillian’s conflicting thoughts on “coming out” and then being a high profile spokesperson speaking out against the misconceptions that go with the lifestyle has been refreshing, and it’s thanks to the insights gained from years of reading YOUR blog that I’ve read her work and thought “yes, someone finally gets it!”.

    Looking forward to seeing the two of you sharing your thoughts.

    • J — thank you so much. I hope you will enjoy her video. She edited it so cleverly and it’s a nice little view of many of us.
      I appreciate you taking the time to write out a nice comment!

  7. Hi Erica,

    I loved the video and it was great to see all of our beloved spankonati!

    I hear you about life in hell. We have fire in the hills, smoke in the air, armed militia in the streets, COVID freaking everywhere, failing businesses, hot weather, no rain, and a president who spent our disaster relief funds on other stuff.

    But I’m trying to be positive.

    Please stay safe and well.

    Socially distant hugs,
    Bonnie

    • Bonnie, my sweet — yup, I hear you. John is now in the path of one of those many CA fires. I have A/C again, but now my car is in the shop and it will cost me $$$. It’s one thing after another after another, and the f@#$ing excuse for a president is tweeting about Kim Jong Un and other complete nonsense — one day after the revelation that he knew how bad the pandemic was all along and downplayed it.

      But hey, I got my hair cut and colored and it looks great!

      May we all keep our health and sanity until this is over. Hugs back to you — take good care.
