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


  1. LOL. I don't think a rectal thermometer could be as grand a butt plug, but I'm sure it would be hot in it's own way... if you're into playing doctor.

    1. I think a buttplug would be significantly more substantial- maybe a lot of models wouldn't agree to that but would a tiny thermometer?

  2. Yup. It's the toothpick. And you know what I do with the toothpick in my burger or my sandwich? I throw it away. :-)

    1. just don't try to pick the broccoli out of your teeth with a used thermometer!

  3. :) It's the humiliation factor!! Love the post - you make me laugh and - I wanted to say educate me but those are big words ;) all while showing me dirty pictures.

    Thanks for the mention :)

    1. You're so welcome! make sure you don't enjoy those pictures in public! LOL

  4. It is entirely about humiliation and adding to the buildup!
    To your hamburger analogy it is similar to the lettuce and tomatoes .It is one of my favorite ingredients.
    I don't know how to explain it, but it is one of my favorite things to administer to a young lady making sure to tell her as I prep the thermometer and leave her waiting until the right moment in order to ensure an accurate is part of a well dressed meal for me.

    1. Glad you liked this post! It's often hard to explain exactly why we like naughty things, but you did a good job doing just that.
