How About a Birthday Spanking?

I don't know about you all, but seeing as you're regular readers of TBP, I'm assuming that you and I are on the same page . . . The Bilerico Project freakin rocks! My family has a pretty weird tradition of issuing spankings on one's birthday. Say what you like about abusive family dynamics and the whole Oedipus thing, but I think we need to bring the kinky tradition over to TBP.

In offering this year's solitary birthday spanking, I wanted to give a few reasons why I love reading (and writing) for TBP so much. At the top of the list are our amazing contributors. Having nationally recognized leaders like Eric Marcus and Kate Clinton on board makes me feel honored just to be here. But I also find that maybe our "lesser-known" writers (not to minimize the importance of their contributions) is also refreshing. We have a lot of different voices: some humorous, some serious, those who love marriage, those who hate it . . . and opinions everywhere in between. If you asked all of our 50+ contributors to share their opinion on a topic, you'd likely get 50+ answers. And we still manage to get along with one another!

But the number 1 reason I enjoy writing for TBP is our readers. Talk about a symphony of different voices! I learn a lot from reading all of your comments, especially those who consistently ask us all to think of something in a different way. Whenever I feel like I might be writing just to hear the sound of my own voice (so to speak), someone leaves a great comment on a post and it's the instant gratification I need to keep going.

One of my favorite birthday traditions is to treat myself to a spa day for a massage and a facial. I usually follow up by indulging in a bubble bath when I get home, with an 8-piece box of Godiva truffles and a nice bottle of $2 buck chuck. Can you think of a better trifecta?

Even though I can't really send you all a birthday pamper package, just know that I would if Bil actually paid us around here. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge!

So bend over for your birthday spanking. Here's to another great year!

Serena, you naughty girl. It is a great site and I am so lucky to have found it.

Haha. Something tells me that if we were all physically together, there'd be a long line of people waiting to be spanked by the S-Dawg.

So bend over for your birthday spanking.

Who's spanking? And who's getting spanked? If I'm delivering the annual punishment, you know that hawt Birthday tush is gonna get such a-lickin'.
