Circus Gluteus Maximus

Three paragraphs into writing a new story set in a carnival, I insisted Mr. Williams read what I'd written and tell me if it was worth continuing. He pointed out that Bonnie had just recently posted a short play set at a carnival, featuring a spanking booth. My story is quite different--and he did say it was worth continuing, so perhaps I'll have some fiction to post soon--but it did get me wondering about whether this is a more common fantasy than I realized. In a world now inundated with schoolroom and office spankings, housewife and naughty daughter spankings, is carnival and circus spanking the new deep dark fantasy of the spanko mind?

After a few minutes of research, I found quite a few spanking booth photos on both Google and Yahoo Images, which surprised me to say the least. None were especially titillating, but they did confirm the idea that public faire spanking is something more than a handful of us have considered. It's easy to make the jump from fundraiser to three-ring affair, and apparently even easier for some than others.

For example, I discovered a troupe called Circus Contraption that actually featured a Spank the Audience act in one of their shows. I could not find any pictures of this act on their site, but as they are based out of Seattle, Washington, I will certainly have to attend their next area performance. I also discovered an odd short story about a little girl birched by circus animals. (Really.)

I've only just started thinking about this subject, so I may have more to say on it in the future. I've been a bit all over the board lately and haven't been able to focus enough to write anything worth posting here. I did want to post something though, just to say I'm still out here, still thinking about spanking, just doing it quietly for a few days. I couldn't find a good photo to accompany this, so if you have one, please share!


  1. Abby,

    Please do continue. My story concerned a county fair, which is quite different than a carnival.

    The only real spanking booth of which I'm aware is at the Folsom Street Faire in SF. I suspect that if you search on that, you'll find lots of photos. They might also do something similar at Burning Man, but I'm not certain.

    In any case, I'd love to hear where your active imagination is wandering these days.


  2. We've seen a spanking booth. This one didn't honestly look like much fun though. It's a great idea for a story though!
