The Forum - Question of the Week #29
This week's question stems from the following reader comment:
"Future Forum topics? I would like to hear much more of the woman’s perspective on domestic discipline. Men seem to dominate these groups and what they say is valuable but we are missing much of the whole other side. I would like to hear more about how women deal with the family side of it (if your mother is your best friend do you tell her or not ... I did finally) How do other women deal with repeat behavior problems and frankly how hard do you punish him. I spank very hard because it gets results and sometimes I wonder if I should. Or what other women do about that and so many other things that come up with domestic discipline."
I couldn't agree more, and I would truly like to figure out a way to foster more participation by Disciplinary Wives. So far, however, I have not had a lot of luck with that, and I am not sure why. I suspect that some of it comes down to one simple factor: women may not spend as much time online looking at spanking and other "naughty" websites. But, I also can't help but wonder if there just are not that many women out there who are into the F/m variant of the DD lifestyle. M/f-oriented DD blogs are out there in abundance, and F/m spanking blogs, such as the wonderful blogs by Hermione and Bonnie, do not lack for posting by women who are into spanking, but into receiving, not giving. On the other hand, the poll I posted several months ago is interesting on this score, because while the ratio of disciplined men to disciplinary women is "skewed" to say the least--like 20:1 skewed--someone is obviously doling out the punishment to those 600+ men who say they are disciplined.
So, here is the question. Actually, a question and an invitation.
The Question: Is there anything I can do with this blog, including re-purposing or renaming it if necessary, to encourage more participation from women who are either in F/m domestic discipline relationships or are interested in them?
The Invitation: Speak up ladies! Touching on some of the questions from the comment above, tell us about your interests in DD. How did you get started? Have you told others that you spank your significant other? If you have children, do they know about your relationship? How hard do you spank? Do you use any non-spanking discipline methods?
I hope you all have a great week.
