Great introduction to erotic spanking
The Compleat Spanker is a thin little book... 12 chapters in 70 pages, plus four appendixes. It is surprisingly thorough despite the small size, and actually has solid coverage of many striking implements beyond the traditional hand-spank. This is a well-written book. The text is tight, precise, and easy to read. Green claims an interest in spanking to be very widespread, and attempts to write a book that's approachable even without an acceptance of broader SM. Although I'm too steeped in BDSM culture to say for sure, I think she has succeeded. The main body of Compleat Spanker is well organized, structured in the order a scene would progress: communication, warm-up, implements, positions, and afterwards. Position illustrations are minimalistic, inoffensive line drawings that compliment the text nicely. Overall, the contents are generally basic. As an experienced spanker, I didn't gain much new information from the book. The chapter Tips, Tricks, and Fun Things to Try was an exception, and I did find some new tidbits there. It was, however, a very fast and entertaining read. Who should read the book? As implied above, an experienced spanker probably won't gain much beyond entertainment. For less experienced folks interested in spanking better, I doubt there is a better guide anywhere. Even if you don't want to have anything to do with SM, this book won't offend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
