Poll: How Many of Us Are There?

How many of us are there out there in the world?  By "us," I mainly mean men who are disciplined by their partners.  But, casting a wider net, how many men and women are either in, or interested in being in, a F/m domestic discipline relationship?

The phenomenon that is 50 Shades of Grey certainly proves that there are A LOT of people out there with an interest in kinky sex with BDSM themes.   But, while people may be comfortable with women getting spanked, is the same true when the man is the receiver? Has the world changed that much?

I've spent a fair amount of time reading spanking blogs and reading material in Yahoo groups devoted to F/m spanking.  It seems that there are quite a few men who are interested in F/m discipline, but how many of them are actually doing it?  And, how many women are interested in disciplining their men?   It often seems to me that the answer to that last one is, "not many."  But, I have a really hard time understanding why.  If it is "a man's world," and women feel they are in a society where men have most of the power, why is there not a lot of interest in turning the tables? 

My goal for this blog is to stimulate a dialog, so please comment.  But, if you don't have time or are nervous about leaving a comment, please take a few seconds to fill out the poll to the right of this entry.  It takes only a few seconds.   While I've already had several hundred page hits in the week this blog has been active, only 10 people have taken the poll.  If you like what you see on this blog, please take just a second to fill out the poll.

  1. I'm a husband who wishes he was disciplined... does that count? Keep posting!

    1. Hi Anonymous. Every comment counts! May I ask whether you have ever raised the possibility with your wife?

  2. Hi DH,

    I don't know the answer to your questions, but I can provide a little bit of insight. Three of the top ten (and 6 of the top 20) referrers to my blog are F/M spanking blogs. Some of these blogs pull in very large readerships. I cannot tell you who is reading, but there is plenty of interest in F/M spanking and discipline.

    Also, forgive me for not answering your poll, but none of the options apply to me. :)

    With warm regards,
    Bonnie

    1. HI Bonnie,

      Yeah, I did a fairly lousy job on the construction of that poll.

  3. I couldn't answer your poll either, but next to Chross and My Bottom Smarts, I get most of my traffic from Consensual Spanking, and many of my comments come from men in an F/m relationship. It's quite a common lifestyle.

    Hugs,
    Hermione

    1. Sore Ass,

      Yes, the reverting back to the old ways still happens quite often, even though we have been at this for several years. I suspect it is hard to overcome that kind of conditioning, especially if it means contradicting prevalent social roles.

  7. I am spanked by my wife for over 40 years. She spanks hard and over her knee. She uses a hairbrush or paddles to spank me with. She was just 19 the first time she spanked me and it was for fun, but for me a dream come true. I had desired to be over a woman's knee ever since I can remmeber. I didn't know about spanking itself just the tingling feeling I got laying over a woman's knee. My Mom didn't spank like that so as I got older the desire got stronger. I would fantizied about these things especially if the person was wearing heels and nylons. As kids we would play house and I always found a way to get spanked by my girl cousins. In middle school years I was able to lay across their knees without spanking, it seems funny today because I still didn't understand my urges. Great blog hope more find their way here.

  8. Ours is a kind of dull story compared to othrs--but totally true. Our marriage is great and long lasting--My wife is of a mor religious and conservative background--and so for certain conduct with my male frinds I take a bare ass paddling---When we know its got to happen I just shower quick and lay my naked self over her lap and she paddles me damn hard and it hurts---but it is totally consenting I just figure i got to make things right for what I have done --When its over things are great between us--It hurts PLENTY but there is no question of embarrassment or unfairness or anything like---We never have told anyone as they would think we were weirdos--so no one knows---It works fine for us--I havbe always wondered if there are other guys like me?

  9. I agree with Bonnie and Hermionie, for many years I ran a DD blog about my (mis)adventures as a spanked husband. At its height I was getting 300+ visitors a day and new posts often peaked at 600+ on the day or so after publication. So its seemed to me there were plenty of people interested in F/M spankings. Surprisingly not all my comments were from men, maybe a third or more of my correspondence and comments were from women, not all of whom were into F/M spanking. Many were just interested in how DD worked, a lot of aspects of that are interchangeable. I think there are more people into DD, and F/M DD than you might think. Which is great!
