You have probably had a generally stable pattern of spanking thoughts and fantasies. Whether you think about spanking now and then, or many times a day, you had a pattern. If you’re a student, you might have noticed that a terrific teacher may be so engrossing that you go for an entire class without thinking about spanking. Otherwise, taking notes and thinking about spanking go together. Similarly, you have a typical masturbation pattern, a certain frequency that fits with the rest of your life. It’s your norm.
Your norm, disrupted
This balance between spanking and everything else can change. If something goes wrong—if you are sick, for instance, or there is a family crisis—you could go for a long time without masturbating, or even thinking about spanking. You’re the same person, with the same desires, but environmental stress demands all your resources. You simply don’t have the energy for spanking.
The balance can also tilt the other way. Something stirs up your interest in spanking and boom! –suddenly it’s all you think about. That’s common when people discover online spanking erotica—the stories, photos, and videos that bring our passion to life. While you’re in this phase, you will naturally masturbate more frequently and think about spanking just about all the time. This is spanking fever.
Spanking fever is even more common when you connect with a new partner. Your mind is crammed with fantasies or, if things go well, a new reality.
Spanking fever doesn’t last forever. Eventually you adjust and your patterns return to normal.
Definitions of spanking fever
I define spanking fever as a period of markedly heightened interest in spanking, with a diminished commitment to everyday life. It may be so intense as to impact your relationships and your work or school life. You may also be able to keep the rest of your life intact, but only with extra effort. Spanking fever has a beginning and, even if you do nothing to tamp it down, a natural end.
Tom, of the Heron Clan blog, describes himself as “awash in spanking thoughts feelings and obsession.” That’s a better definition than mine.
Quai Franklin has written about spanking fever as well.
“When I’m in that state, the only things I want to engage in are spanking-related. Every female bottom I see, I consider spanking. All I want to talk about, when I’m in the fever, is spanking or topics around spanking. I want to read, write, and view spanking materials.”
Why is this important? There are two reasons.
First: it is normal, and it is temporary. You have not lost your mind. You have not suddenly become totally irresponsible. It’s just that something has set you off, you are thinking about spanking and masturbating more than usual. If there is a crisis, at school, work, or home, you will still respond, and in time you will get back to your normal self.
Second: spanking fever can make you stupid. Thinking that you may be connecting with someone for that real life spanking you have always dreamed of can mute the alarm signals in your brain. Especially when you are giddy with anticipation, you must pay attention to your protective instincts. If in doubt, talk it over with someone before heading off for a rendezvous with someone you’ve never met.
