Over a century after Sigmund Freud asked his famous question “What does a woman want?”, Cyndi Lauper answered it. Girls just want to have fun. Now it’s time to answer (or at least ask) a different, not-so-age-old question: what does a man want … in a spanking video?
I don’t want to over-analyze this. The simple answer is that we want to see hot girls get spanked. But the simple answer isn’t always the right one. It would be hard to find a hotter spankee than, say, Samantha Woodley. But given the choice, I’d rather watch, say, Clare Fonda or Chelsea Pfeiffer get spanked than Samantha. In other words, there’s more to the equation than just a hot girl gittin’ her nekkid butt swatted.
I know what studios believe we want to see. They think we want schoolgirls. According to my unscientific calculations, there are overwhelmingly more spanked schoolgirl videos out there than any other grouping. There are whole websites devoted to spanked schoolgirls. There are fictional schools and teachers and students and headmasters showing up as recurring characters in on-going, spanked schoolgirl soap operas.
So has the market spoken? Is this really what we want? Or is the market not reflecting the desires of its largest group of consumers, namely horny, middle-aged males?
Personally, I’m not a big fan of the spanked schoolgirl genre. I didn’t go to Catholic school. My adolescence wasn’t filled with longing for girls in uniform. It just doesn’t do anything for me one way or another. If the young woman looks good, and she’s in a schoolgirl outfit, great. Same girl, without the uniform and I’m just as happy.
Also, I like stories, something with a beginning, middle and end — something that contains a resolution. I’m not talking about a complicated plot. Just a resolution, like girl is mouthy, girl gets spanked, girl no longer mouthy. That’s a resolution. That’s really all I need, plot-wise.
Well, maybe I am against the schoolgirl spanking genre. It seems to depend on frivolities, like, say, someone not cleaning her room. I mean, so what? Those kinds of pretexts make the entire video seem unimportant. Worse, it might even make the spanking seem unfair or disproproportional. Psychologically, I tend to root for an underdog and feel empathy for a victim of unfair or disproportional punishment. But the last thing I want to do is identify, even unconsciously, with a spankee. It impinges on my enjoyment of the video.
I don’t dislike all videos in the schoolgirl category. I’ve given positive reviews to several of them. But in general, I think the genre is overdone, and it often misses the mark. Worse, it’s lazy and half-hearted. Some studios seem to think they can take an uninspiring girl, put her in a school girl outfit, and make her sexy. Wrong!
Just my two cents. Let me know what you think.
