The whipping post survived in the US well into the 20th century. It was last used in the state of Delaware in 1952. There also was an early CP novel in the 50s or 60s called The Whipping Post under the name of Angela Pearson who wrote several flagellation... novels in those years.
There is always the 'drive-by' approach. Arrange to cruise past each other in your vehicle at an agreed-upon location. Honk twice for 'maybe'.
If both persons honk twice, meet in a somewhat busy place or restaurant, with the woman's choice of who... gets there first. The first person wears something that stands out from the other people - a red scarf or specific hat, etc. Both people have the option of bailing out to the nearest emergency exit.
Lastly, if you seeking something long-term, it's a good idea to at least briefly discuss compatibility. Such as living on the same continent, education, etc.
Building on BashfulBob's comment, there would be a plot (genre) called "Therapeutic." And, that would have to be divided into at least two categories: physical, covering the physical and mental benefits of endorphin release; and psychological, covering... the sometimes beneficial result of pain on a troubled mind/soul/psyche.
What a lively interview. Dave Wolfie is one of my favorite artists (for obvious reasons) and it was a pleasure to read his replies. Also credit goes to Ferbus for selecting and arranging the questions in that order, a top class job. And the cartoons ...... no words, I'll just admire them.
Hmmmm... Not as easy to answer as one might think. Do I like spankees to dress up? Well, I do like to indulge my fetishes from time to time, tight blue jeans are what do it best for me, but I can perv over a naughty schoolgirl too. A smart... secretary, a nurse (I spent much time in hospital in my late teens when there were many young and student nurses on the wards and all had to wear black stockings & suspenders, I suffered greatly from priapism!), a leather mini-skirt.. A one-piece swimsuit, ah yes... I actually don't like make-up and certainly not very much of it if the spankee feels more comfortable wearing it. When spanking, I usually dress in business clothes, of which I have many. Smart shirt & tie with suit & shiny shoes. Can be Boss, manager, or if I wear my tweeds, a teacher or headmaster. The only time I have been asked to dress up to be spanked was at a fetish party where I had to wear a studded leather pouch.. I think these days my spankers feel that they are indulging my fantasy and don't insist on what I should wear. I do try to wear to please with nice tight jeans and kiniki briefs.
I can speak from both sides of the fence. I wasn't spanked at home as a child, slapped occasionally with the threat of a "Good Hiding" if I misbehaved, but even at Nursery there was always the threat of slapping or in Primary school the strap, which... I did get once and it was well-deserved and I thought no worse of the teacher issuing it. Then came Preparatory School. I was fascinated by the regime at first then came to fear, dread and despise the absolute authoritarian regime. I earned my first caning at age 9, and I did earn it. I wanted to experience this archaic punishment that I didn't really believe was still prevalent, but oh was I ever wrong. I was badly bullied by both boys and staff at said boarding school all the way up to age 16 and suffered actual psychological damage that took many years/decades to throw off. The canings at said school, particularly from our infamous housemaster, who earned a nickname for being so vicious and keen to use the cane, were brutal, not just a short sharp shock, and we were always left bruised for several weeks and sometimes bleeding. I saw and experienced how corporal punishment could and was used to bully and subdue. Did I think that corporal punishment should be banned? Certainly at times I wished it was because it was used so unfairly, but I did think it served as an ultimate deterrent. My fascination with spanking and caning was submerged, nearly drowned completely and from play-caning with other similar-minded boy/s I buried it as a perversion, because I could see that our housemaster at least was definitely enjoying inflicting suffering. Time passed, I matured and married and had a family. Corporal punishment? We had several children and one I spanked twice, one never and two once at the same time for nearly losing their mother her job. The threat was enough, because they all knew that I would if the occasion merited it, but it was not something that would be resorted to without extreme provocation. So. Does spanking warp personalities? Not in my opinion and experience. Violence and bullying certainly do. There is a difference between punishing a child for a wrongdoing when they knew they were doing wrong and using violence to subdue them and/or prove one's dominance. So, learn to accept and live with your predeliction. I really enjoy both spanking and being spanked. I will sometimes leave really juicy medals if that's what the person wants. Sometimes it's what I want too, but it is always consensual and pre-agreed, never forced. Yes role-play can "pretend" scenarios, but that's what they are. Real life is something else.
