I consider myself a spanko, being pretty much obsessed with the spanking fetish. I used to be spanked regularly by a guy named Daddy Howard, a well-known top in the San Francisco gay BDSM scene, who gave very sound spankings. Unfortunately, he moved to Canada awhile back, and I never saw him again. Recently I learned that sadly, he died of cancer about a year ago.The San Francisco area has a number of what I would call professional spankers, meaning that you can get a spanking if you're willing to pay for it. The going rate, I discovered, is about $300 an hour.I generally don't like the idea of paying for sex, but, this past month I hadn't had a spanking for almost a year, so I was kind of desperate. Kind of? Well, actually, REALLY desperate! I don't do well at spanking parties, so the idea of paying for a spanking was tempting.From an Internet search, I discovered that there are a number of women here in the Bay Area who do spankings for pay. (There are probably men who do this too, but I couldn't find any.)My search came up with several possibilities, but one that stood out to me was a woman who calls herself Gin. Her website, naturallygin.com, has a number of great testimonies from satisfied customers. So, I decided to give her a try, and made an appointment for this past Tuesday, 29 January.I had never paid for any kind of sex before, so I was kind of apprehensive. Was I wasting my money? What if it was some kind of scam? $300 for an hour of spanking isn't exactly cheap. But it wasn't just the money, it was scary. I had never done anything like this before. What could I expect? Several times I considered canceling the appointment, but I finally decided I was not going to wimp out on this.As it turned out, my appointment with Gin greatly exceeded my expectations. This woman is phenomenal. The minute I walked in the door and we started talking, it was like, she was a best friend I had known for years. Of course, this was the first time I had ever met her, but the way she interacts with you makes you feel totally welcome and at ease. After the session was over, we talked a little and I rested. I felt no embarrassment whatsoever sitting on the bed talking with her totally naked!Her spanking skills as a top are excellent. She spanked me hard sometimes, and when I screamed, it delighted her. But, she didn't overdo it. She told me that as a first time client, she wanted to start out a little slowly until she got to know me better. Good idea. That's one of the signs of a good top.When I left, we hugged like we were old friends. I made another appointment for next month before I left. I think that says it all.If you are interested, check out her website, naturallygin.com. Gin is located in the Nob Hill area.
