It's Love Our Lurkers Day, and I definitely wanted to give any lurkers out there a big thanks for reading and lots of love.
I have a lot of experience as a lurker. It's just didn't feel comfortable to out myself as being interested in spanking, even posting under a screen name.
Then, I made a big leap. I'm not quite sure what made me do it, but I decided to go to a Shadow Lane spanking event. It was kind of a 0 to 60 move. I felt vaguely uncomfortable the whole time I was there, although everyone--really, everyone--was very nice. And although I didn't find it exactly fun most of the time, because I was nervous and I'm on the shy side and no matter what the event I find it hard talking to strangers, I found it liberating. (In my novella Taken in Hand, the characters go to a spanking event, and I got to use--and this was years later--little pieces of what I'd experienced.)
Maybe a post would feel liberating, lurkers. I'm friendly, and I know you'd get a warm welcome from anyone else who posts here.
But feel free to continue to lurk. Either way, I'm happy to have you here.
