It’s really more than paying for spankings most of the time when women are paying for sex; what women are really wanting is sexual explorations, and it’s happening all over the United States and around the world.
And we are talking about “respectable women” and “beautiful” women too.
Perhaps, I have a unique perspective on all of this as I have been one of those women and I talk about it. The problem has been trying to get anyone to listen to what’s happening with real women around sexual explorations — especially midlife women.
Before the fictional “50 Shades of Grey” made submission and spanking the subject of national conversation, I took the journey as midlife woman in a long-term monogamous marriage into the world of paying for sexual healing and I told my real life adventures into the subterranean world of sacred sexuality and bondage. In 2011, Rodale published my first book, a memoir called “Shameless: How I ditched The Diet, Got Naked; Found True Pleasure and Somehow Got Home in Time to Cook Dinner”. where I told the tale. It was supposed to be a New York Times bestseller. It wasn’t. We couldn’t get media attention for it. Not really. Sometimes real life is too scary.
