Despite her strict upbringing and meddling family, Glynis Coleman has entertained fantasies of being flogged all her adult life. But until she decided to answer an ad on a BDSM site, seeking participants for a survey on impact play, she had given up hope of fulfilling those fantasies in real life. And guilt over them led her to teach history in a Catholic high school, thus decreasing her chances of meeting anyone interested in indulging her secret desires.
Asa Baker, the Dom at Sensations who introduces her to impact play during one erotic night at the club, is everything she’s ever dreamed of. Handsome, charming, and he loves to use a flogger. Asa has been searching for the woman of his dreams, and it doesn’t take him long to realize he’s found that woman in Glynis. Now all he has to do is convince her of the same thing.

Ravenna Tate. Just seeing her name gives me the tingles. Honestly, she’s one of my favorite BDSM authors...ok, I just plain love her writing. This new series of hers, The Spanking Experiment, has quickly become a fast favorite of mine! I certainly wouldn’t mind if it kept going on and on. We are now on book number three, A Flogging Fantasy, and just the title alone has me all in a tizzy! I would love to be in the heroine’s place! One of the things, (And there are many!) that I love about this series, is that the heroines are all plus size. They are also self-conscious about their bodies and have poor body image. These doms make them feel good about themselves, and if I had any complaint at all about these books is that they are too short! Our heroine responding to the survey this time is Glynis Coleman, an Irish-Catholic school teacher who works in a Catholic High School. (Talk about sexual repression!) She’s had fantasies of being flogged for a long time, but being Catholic, and being raised in a family who believes in old-fashioned arranged marriages, she’s has to repress her urges. Enter dominant Asa Baker, one of the owners of Sensations BDSM club, and the dom who chose her. They spend quite the incredible night together, learning a lot about each other. Has Glynis found her match? You’ll love this book! Despite the short length, it’s full of spicy and erotic flogging scenes and good old fashioned romance!
A Flogging Fantasy is book 3 in Ravenna Tate's The Spanking Experiments series, and it's another winner. Glynis Coleman is a young, mild-mannered, high school history teacher who's answered one of the ads placed by Sensations, a BDSM club, for a survey conducted by the Dominants at the club regarding impact play. Glynis is as smart as a whip and very good at her job, including wrangling high school students. That truly takes skill. But outside of school? She's shy, unsure of herself, and has always fantasized about BDSM, flogging in particular. She's gone through the survey's rigorous screening process, read all the forms, completed all the paperwork, watched all the videos, done all the research. But now that she's actually at Sensations, she's second guessing herself. Can she really go through with this? Sure, she's had flogging fantasies nearly all her adult life. But does reality ever live up to the fantasy? Or will she find herself disappointed, lost, even humiliated again, just like in the past? Asa Baker is one of the co-owners of Sensations and a Dominant in every sense of the word. He helped design the survey for inexperienced submissives to participate in impact play, a survey created so that a certain number of submissives would be assigned to each Dom participating. Glynis is Asa's fifth and final submissive. But Glynis is completely unaware of this when she walks into the room to meet Asa. As she does, and her eyes adjust to the low-level lighting in the room, she's totally blown away! Asa is every woman's dream. How can he possibly want to go through this experiment with her? She's a nobody, a sexually inexperienced high school history teacher that no man has ever expressed any kind of interest in. There's no way her fantasies about flogging, impact play, and bondage can ever come true now, right? He's made a mistake. Surely he's going to throw her out. She's absolutely nothing special. What can Asa possibly see in her to make him even want to complete the experiment? She was never prepared for anything like this. How can any of this work in any way? It has to be a huge mistake! I have personally identified with every female protagonist in each of the three books in this series, but perhaps none more so than Glynis. In very many ways, she could well be me. Her life experiences to a large degree mirror my own. I felt her every emotion. To say that tears flowed from the beauty and deep emotions of the story would be a huge understatement. But it's not just Glynis and her experiences that drew me in. Asa's story is totally authentic in every way. Seeing him and Glynis' shared interactions through her eyes made me acutely aware that the things aren't always as they seem. The feelings, emotions, history and background of both characters are all so beautifully written that you can't help but feel the anticipation, happiness, desire, fear, despair, disbelief, and reality of everything that occurs. As Glynis learns what submission is, as well as what she can and can't accept, you learn right alongside her. It's a beautiful story filled with poignancy and deep emotion. I give A Flogging Fantasy my highest recommendation without reservation. Thank you, Ravenna Tate, for once again giving us such a wonderful book that shows your hard work, your mastery of the genre, and your amazing writing talent! Kudos for such a remarkable book and series! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
