For spanking enthusiasts, even the mention of the ‘S’ word can trigger the libido. Spanking fetishes go hand
in hand with active imaginations — and as an artist, I believe that art is one of the most potent sparks to human imagination.
Put art and spanking into the same mix, and pow! It’s an ideal coupling, and spanking/corporal punishment artwork abounds in huge volumes, as even a casual search of Tumblr will demonstrate.
Why is there such a proliferation of spanking and C/P art out there? I suppose the question should really be—what is it about spanking and ritualized corporal punishment that appeals to some people on a sexual level? And I don’t believe that has a simple answer. It is often not a purely masochistic impulse.
