A muscular man lays over a woman’s lap as she thoroughly spanks him with a paddle. He is lustily ejaculating as she, smiling, reddens his ass.
This interesting drawing was suggested by Derek Isme. I like the way the picture captures a lightheartedness absent in many other drawn pictures; stars and hearts radiate from the man’s ass in a very comic book-like style, and it’s easy to see that both the man and woman are enjoying themselves. If I run with this lightheartedness, then the text caption, which I think reads, “He should’ve known better than to eat her last Twinkie…” can be humorous and playful.
However, that text also gives the image a narrative that implies the paddling is a punishment rather than simply fun. I often fear that this apparent paradox—that such playful punishment is fun—is confusing to people, not just people unfamiliar with BDSM play, and gets misinterpreted in many ways. Many people take this kind of play too seriously, perhaps in an effort to legitimize their activities or because they don’t think “it’s okay” to “just have fun,” and in so doing turn playful so-called punishments into rigid, rule-filled, protocol-laden interactions that do more to isolate themselves from their partner than anything else. That can quickly turn fun, social stuff like this paddling into very sad, lonely scenes, which I believe is one of the root problems with most male submissive imagery; i.e., the men can’t possibly be enjoying it, right? Wrong.
