Like so many, many of us out here – I typed the word, I typed “spanking” on the search line of my computer. At that moment, over six years ago, trumpets sounded, the heavens opened and a shaft of light hit the screen as My Bottom Smarts came up!
I had found what I was looking for with My Bottom Smarts and Bonnie. I had no idea what it was. As far as I knew blogging was something teenagers did on the computer. I read everything on Bonnie’s site and it was several days before I even saw the little place at the bottom of each post that said “comments”. So I clicked on it and was surprised again to realize that this was a back and forth type of communication with real people. Everyone was talking about a topic that I had thought about for years!! I had to get in on it!
I could see the comment box. I could see that there was a place to click so that I could comment anonymously. I knew what it said but I couldn’t help believe that if I left a comment, even anonymously, my name, address, age, weight, sexual preferences, and mother’s maiden name would show up on every computer monitor in the free world along with my picture with the word ‘pervert’ written across it. Well maybe not every monitor, but at least my boss, my colleagues, my preacher, my husband and my in-laws (and they don’t even have a computer). Can you say paranoid? But finally I could stand it no longer. I left a comment and waited. Two amazing things happened: the sex police did not show up and Bonnie posted a response to my comment. That was it I was hooked.
Everything in my life is better because of what I found. With Bonnie’s help, I’m closer to my husband, my marriage is better, I’m happier and healthier and even looking forward to a possible writing career – all because someone out here told me I was ‘normal’ and that someone was Bonnie.
