This is an email from the very talented author, Sue Lyndon. I love her take on anal discipline! Now I'm off to read some more of her books.
I loved your blog post and can't wait to see the results of your research. Okay, so here's my thoughts on anal discipline:
It can be anything (plug, finger, ginger, cock, etc.) inserted as part of a punishment session. This can be done before, during, or after a spanking if so desired. I do know that anything inserted in the ass, even a small plug, during a spanking makes it much more difficult for the spankee to zone out into subspace, so it can serve to make sure the spankee feels the whole spanking as intended.
A plug can also be inserted before going out into public to encourage the woman to behave. I've also read some stories where a plug is used during corner time before or after a spanking. I think this ups the humiliation factor for the woman, makes the woman feel more submissive, and makes the experience more memorable.
Hmmm...that's all I can think of. I do enjoy reading and writing stories with anal discipline. In one of my stories, the hero forces the heroine to pull her cheeks apart so he can finger her ass after a spanking while she's still in the OTK position. And in another one of my stories, the hero always has anal sex with the heroine after she's earned a spanking and considers it the final act of her punishment. So yes...seeing more anal discipline in books would suit me just fine!
Let me know if you have any questions. I'm not exactly an expert, but I guess I know more about this subject than the average person LOL.
