I used to read it in secret (read stalker) and then when I finally came out and my husband spanked me for the first time, we both thought 'holy hell, spanking is loud!' It is loud - and if you have kids, you don't want loud!!
So what did I do? I got up the courage to e-mail Jane from the Chintz Curtain. She was the only person I thought to talk to. So I wrote her an e-mail that went something like 'Dear Jane, my husband and I just started spanking and it's really loud. Can you recommend for me something we can use that is quiet? Please don't laugh.' Yes, I had that last sentence in there and it makes me giggle now. I was alway so embarrassed and nervous.
So Jane was so so super sweet! She e-mailed me and we chatted and turned out we needed to keep hand spanking as we were new and it would be a good way to figure out what the heck we were doing. Since then, Jane and I have talked quite a bit - sometimes over martinis - those are always nice. She's someone I trust and I trusted right away which I always find interesting. It's like those people whom you do trust right away are the ones that stay with you. I love her, I find her funny and clever and just a good person. And she's an awesome writer and photographer so head over and check her out and say hi. Tell her I sent you and she might have a martini to spare... :) Just click here
