temperature taking - a new hamburger ingredient?

"I feel sick. I don't think I can go to school/work."
"Poor little sweetie, I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. Here, let me take your temperature."
"Wait what? No, not like that!"
"It's the most accurate way. Now be a good little one and stop fussing. This will be over in a minute or two."
"Hmmm... it says 98.6. I think you need a lesson in not making stories up as an excuse not to get out of bed. If the insides of your bottom aren't overly hot, your bottom itself is about to be. Lift up. That's it. Over my lap."

Taking a temperature rectally prior to a spanking is almost an archetype in spanking fiction, roleplay, and movies.  I can understand the appeal. It enhances both the feelings of embarrassment, vulnerability and violation. Maybe it feels good.  True confession- I've never experienced a rectal temperature as part of spanking play, though I have had a finger massage my prostate. Though I can't imagine a small thermometer providing the same unique sensation, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

However, I found it interesting that on fetlife, the fetish "rectal temperature" has a grand total of 373 people into it, while "spanking" has ~287,000 folks into it and just the jargonish "otk spanking"  has 33,747 folks into it.

One might not guess that from just watching spanking videos, though.  Rectal temperature taking is seemingly everywhere in spanking videos:
Claire seems especially "fonda" rectal temps.
Venerable groundbreaking institutions like ShadowLane are into it.  Even Dana Kane gets into it. The act is even included in some spanking romance novels.
So clearly, even if most folks aren't into it it, at least as far as admitting they're into it... there's got to be some significant appeal, right? Unless, that is, spanking video producers embrace the rectal temp as something just a little bit naughty, but not too kinky- such that one could conceivably just be into spanking, but surely not into anal play- a thermometer is barely big enough to cause that sensation, right?! Perhaps it appeals to stretching the limits just a wee little bit.  Maybe just an added bit of acceptable spiciness on behalf of the spanking video producers.  Plus like I said before- it adds to the vulnerability and even the violation of the spankee, which is an element of appeal that I get.

But how does it fit into my hamburger analogy? Well, I've thought long and hard about this.  I don't think that rectal temperatures are a key ingredient that might be ordered as a topping on someone's hamburger, just as I don't think they're something most spankos are looking for, yet they have an an undeniable place... perhaps as the thin toothpick stuck slowly through the buns.

Maybe it's just the toothpick

Happy Birthday, America!

I had a couple of thought provoking posts I'm working on, and a story or two, but then July 4th crept up on me and I just thought screw it- I'll post some amusing 4th of July pictures, found with a quick google search, this is what I consider art.
Americans have lots of icons, some of them are sexy:
only sexy because of a movie

only sexy because of my blog

But some aren't.

Maybe Americans drink too much watery beer:
And even if we're not the world's best at soccer, there's still this...
Here's some American-related spanking pics:
Sometimes we use the American flag for commercial purposes:
But Sometimes the flag is put to better use: 
Again, Happy Birthday America!- have a safe and fun 4th of July weekend.
