I'm so excited to welcome Thianna Doesitmatter to my blog today. She has a new book out called As Natural as Breathing and she is over here today talking about how sexual fetish mixes with the discipline of a spanking. I'll let her take it away, here she is, thanks for coming by Thianna!
Thanks, Casey, for letting my book tour be on your blog today:)
This is day 12 of the As Natural As Breathing Book Blog Tour. Have you been reading along? If not, you can find all the posts here.
So, okay, we all read spanking books – at least I am going with the assumption. If you don’t, pssst! You are really missing out! – and many times the sexual fetish of spanking intermixes with the discipline side.
Today I want to divest those two sides. At least for a minute. So,– what is a fetish anyway? In this context, it is a sexual reaction to a non-sexual event, place, or thing. So, for those who have a spanking fetish, being spanked or spanking someone would turn them on. But that is only a section of those who do spanking. The other side is discipline (some refer to it as punishment). Now, within this, the spanking is not sexual. It is meant to be painful and to make a point.
However – that does not mean that you cannot have both! After all, if you are a spanko who loves to paint an ass red and you discipline your spankee hard, one can easily understand how that might turn you on to where you have to have him/her now! Or if you are a spankee who loves being paddled…one can see how getting that particularly sharp hit across the sit spot could both teach you to something as well as make you very wet.
In As Natural As Breathing, the first in my gay spanking romance series about Logan and Christian – two amazingly wonderful men, the emphasis is on spanking as a sexual fetish even though domestic discipline is mentioned. It isn’t until book 2 which will be out in January 2014, that DD becomes a lot more integral to their relationship and the overall plot of the books.
In this excerpt, Christian gets his first spanking from Logan, pants off, but he is still wearing his underwear.
“All right, over my lap,” Logan said, scooting toward the front of the sofa.
Grinning at the full fantasy unfolding before him, Christian bent over his lap, chuckling as Logan pushed him further so that his ass stuck in the air. “I knew you were a kinky Santa.”
Laughing, Logan tapped a few times on his ass cheeks. “This is about as kinky as it gets for me, but I do enjoy spanking.”
A gasp left Christian’s lips as warmth spread across his right cheek. SMACK! SMACK! With each hit, Logan’s hand hit a slightly different area and warmth just seemed to shoot out from it. With his hands and feet on the ground, Christian moaned with each hit. Damn but this was nice, so much better than he imagined.
As a particularly hard swing made him grunt in both pleasure and pain, a strange little cry left his lips as Logan went back to massaging. “Still okay?” Logan asked quietly.
“Yes,” Christian panted. “Better than my fantasies,” he laughed.
“That’s good to hear.” The smile was evident in Logan’s voice. “Now, I have a suggestion, but it would include touching, which I don’t know if you are ready for. It is called an erotic spanking and would include both spanking and touch. I promise to keep my fingers on top of the material, but won’t do it unless you agree.”
Logan wanted to touch him, possibly stroke his cock. Oh god, how Christian wanted that. He wanted to feel Logan touching him, though he didn’t have any idea why he would combine it with spanking. “Do it,” he said in short breaths, unwilling to back off from the pleasure he was experiencing.
As Natural As Breathing
Genre: Gay Spanking Romance
For Christian Darringer, life isn’t worth living. Just back from the Middle East; scarred and with permanent damage to one leg, he does not think anyone will want him for anything. Meeting a gorgeous man he finds himself thinking about constantly is not in his plans. Pulled toward the startling younger man with striking blue eyes, he begins to question a lot of things – especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan who is full of life and joy, he finds himself head over heels in love.
Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends and security. The only thing missing is finding the love of his life, a love that is just like his parents’. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help this sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants but his interest in spanking became a fetish and when Christian admits that he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.
Just as everything begins for them, Christian’s past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. If it weren’t for Logan’s support, he might fold; but with the love of one amazing man, Christian finds that living his life rather than just existing is as natural as breathing.

For Thianna D, reading and writing are as important as breathing and far more important than math or science. A storyteller from the time she could speak, she was always making up characters as a kid. As a teenager that turned to sci-fi and fantasy, as an adult to romance. It wasn’t until her fourth decade that she began writing erotic scenes within her stories.
Writing M/M came naturally to her; she wrote her first tale before ever having read one. “There is something about the amazing dynamic between two strong men falling in love and defeating anything thrown at them.” While she had written several BDSM stories involving men, As Natural As Breathing was the first full-length novel involving domestic discipline.
