He Had Liked #Spanking His Wife #SatSpanks




Today I wanted to share a piece from Aching To Submit from Michael's point of view. This is a small snippet the morning after her first spanking - to which he reacted differently than he expected…

* * * * 

He’d liked spanking his wife. Was that it or was it that he’d liked hurting her? 

Her submission had thrilled him. Having his instructions followed, his orders obeyed… it made him hard thinking of it even now. 

The paddling had come more naturally than he’d thought it would. Standing her in the corner—Christ. 

She’d obeyed without question once he’d asserted his position, his dominion over her. It thrilled him.

But he still couldn’t wrap his brain around that one word: sadist.

I love this snippet Natasha, Am I a sadist? .... the question a lot of Doms/HoH's wrestle with.

Hugs,
Roz

Daizie Draper said...

Great snippet. Ah, the big question and admission. The Dom in my story struggles with that too.

Tara Finnegan said...

One of my favourite things about Aching to Submit is how you seem to get every emotion spot on. Michael spent his life learning one mode of behaviour and then, in order to satisfy Sophie's deep desires he spanks her and to his horror gets a kick out of it. Guilt and confusion are totally natural. There is beautiful empathy in that snip

Accepting one's desires is not an easy process!

Leigh Smith aka Sunny Girl said...

Coming to terms with those innate desires can be daunting. Me thinks he'll realize that everything in moderation (wink, wink) is not a bad thing.

PK Corey said...

I haven't read it all of course, but he doesn't seem like a sadist to me. When your wife ask to be spanked, and he happens to enjoy doing it mutualism - everyone is helped.

Natasha Knight said...

I think to some level, all Doms and HOH's must think of this at least once. Or maybe it's the ones new to it. Either way, I'm glad Michael was into it!

:)

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you Daizie. I think it's an interesting piece and I'd love to explore it some more.

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you Tara. You said it all in your (amazing) review - I so appreciate that. You know it made me cry!!

Natasha Knight said...

No, it's not - for sure not in this case. They get to a really good place though.

Natasha Knight said...

You made me giggle - you're absolutely right. And you know they're going to live happily ever after too… :-D

Thanks Sunny Girl

Natasha Knight said...

I don't even think sadism is a bad thing - depending on your partner - and in this case, she wants it so you're right. It's a win win situation...

I loved the SNIPPET (yes I still yell SNIPPET -- no one knows why I do this, or how long it will be 'til I stop, but there are angry villagers with torches outside my door right now and rumors of a petition at change dot org, "Make Savill Stop Typing Snippet In All Caps!" that's already garnered upwards of 100 signatures) and I also loved Tara's review!

LA Cloutier said...

I just love it when a man agrees to try something new and finds out how much he really likes it. Delicious snippet.... (please not I did not yell snippet like Sheri Savill did... because I am a good girl)

Emily Tilton said...

Natasha, you touch on the deepest issues so lightly and delicately. Wonderful.

Casey McKay said...

Poor Michael needs to learn not to label himself! You know I loved this book- nice snippet :)

Joelle said...

beautiful :) how nice to read his pov. Interesting that he's struggling with his enjoyment

Mary Wehr said...

Nice snippet. Knowing he's worried about being a sadist will probably keep him focused on just how hard he spanks her. Hard enough to drive his point home but not hard enough to really cause any physical damage. Nice!

So well done!
I loved the emotions he went through after this spanking.
they both went through so much!
It was the perfect combination of fiction and reality!
Great job, Natasha!

Abbie Adams said...

I just finished this yesterday. I loved it- Couldn't put it down! Trying to decide if I could get my dear hubby to read it.

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you Abbie! I'm glad you enjoyed it. My husband did read it - he doesn't usually read my books - but I sort of insisted on this one. Let me know yours does!!

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you Katie!

Natasha Knight said...

Thanks Mary, coming to terms with that and truly understand what Sophie is asking for is Michael's ARC. I very much enjoyed writing him. Well, both of them.

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you Joelle. He does come to terms with it….I know you didn't know that! :)

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you dear.

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you Emily.

Natasha Knight said...

You are not a good girl LA - stop trying to pretend. We all know you… ;)

I'm glad you liked my SNIPPET!

Natasha Knight said...

But did her review make you cry??? ;) SNIPPET!!!

Celeste Jones said...

So interesting to find out learn what the man is thinking. Nice job!

Sheri Savill said...

SNIPPET. That's all I have to say. Also, this..

Natasha Knight said...

You can't help yourself, can you? I love lmgtfy…

I'm eating spicy cheetos from the US. My fingers are sticky orange. My mouth is on fire…yum...

Patricia Green said...

Sadism really has a bad rap. Masochists need them, for one thing. They're not ravening beasts. I'm glad you gave him the humanity he deserves.

Sue Lyndon said...

This a really powerful scene, Natasha. Love it!

Angie Sargenti said...

This could be a companion piece to my post about submission! I wonder if my husband ever questioned himself like that.

Kristin Elyon said...

Was a beautiful part in the story! LOVED to know what he was thinking! <3
