Kinky Fantasies: Leroy Jethro Gibbs

(Picture courtesy of Wikipedia.)

This is the first instalment of a series which I have planned to do for quite some time. It's about my favourite fictional TV characters and the kinky fantasies they create in my head. Having spent most of the time either in bed or in front of the TV during the last days due to a &$§#*%! cold, now seems like a good time to finally start this new blog feature. Pandora recently wrote a post about the TV show Castle and its cool and sexually submissive protagonist Rick Castle. The discussion in the comment section suddenly somehow also involved NCIS and its kinky potential. Since I am a huge fan of NCIS, I decided to make Leroy Jethro Gibbs the first fictional character I am going to write about.

The series and the character in a few sentences:

Gibbs (portrayed by actor Mark Harmon) and his team belong to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. They investigate criminal offences involving members of either the Navy or the Marine Corps. Gibbs, a former Gunnery Sergeant and a very experienced Senior Special Agent in Charge, is the team leader. In short, lots of crime and suspense, lots of smart uniforms, a team consisting of very cool male and female characters and a very protective as well as assertive boss.

Kinky label:

For me, Leroy Jethro Gibbs definitely is dominant territorial. Oops, I guess that's a label usually applied to dogs rather than humans. But I think it fits quite well. In other words, Gibbs is a top who fosters and challenges his team members and who defends his pack against all attacks from the outside.

Kinky references:

The kinky appeal of NCIS is definitely high. In fact, I don't have to make up any kinky fantasies of my own because there is a lot of spanking taking place in the series, anyway. Or, to be more precise, slaps on the back of the head. As I stated in an earlier post, I am not very much into face slapping because it feels too real for me. But Gibbs wonderfully explains the difference between head slapping and face slapping and why he would never consider doing the latter: "A slap to the face would be humiliating. Back of the head is a wake-up call."


Kinky appeal:

Gibbs' appeal is quite easy to explain, given my kinky preferences. He is a stern but caring boss who has made his way up the ladder through hard work. Having been in the role of a probie (and on the receiving end of head slaps) himself, he now passes his knowledge on to his own team. Okay, okay, I admit it, the eye-candy factor is there as well. There is no way to deny that.

The attitude behind the head slaps and the relationships between the characters involved are why I love the head slapping scenes. The slaps are not about guilt or having to earn forgiveness. Gibbs even forbids his agents to apologize for their mistakes. There isn't a strict gender agenda, either. The female as well as the male members of the team are subjected to Gibbs' special treatment. And he even smacks himself once, knowing that he is about to violate protocol. The slaps are indeed a simple wake-up call, a reminder of who is in charge and, in a way, also a sign of care and affection.

Obviously, I am not the only one who loves the head slappings. There are several compilations of NCIS head slapping scenes on YouTube. Here is one of them for you to watch:


The funny thing is that it all obviously started spontaneously and rather out of character. Michael Wheaterly, the actor who plays Tony DiNozzo, the agent who quite often finds himself on the receiving end of Gibbs' head slaps, and Mark Harmon described the origin of the head slappings as follows:


There is only one team member whom Gibbs never slaps – Forensic Specialist Abby Sciuto. In my opinion, Abby would make a great switch, though. And I am sure that there are lots of kinky guys (and girls) out there who are sad that Abby is only very rarely shown on either the administering or receiving end of any slaps, and never in combination with Gibbs. In one episode, he threatens to slap her, though. I leave it up to you to interpret this scene:


Of course the slaps aren't the only kinky appeal of the series. Have I already mentioned the smart uniforms which can frequently be seen? And the abundance of cool, geeky and strong male and female characters? And the interrogations? Nothing more to add here, I think.


My favourite scenario:

Even though I like the other team members just as much (Timothy McGee even is a favourite of mine), the head slapping scenes with Anthony DiNozzo on the receiving end are my favourite ones. His facial expressions are delicious and the surprised little sounds that he makes are music to my little inner sadist's ears. Do I dream of more explicit spanking scenes? To be honest: not really. It might be strange for some people, but these small references which don't interfere with the adult, respectful, formal but friendly relationships between the characters have much more sex appeal for me than more explicit scenes would. I actually find the head slapping scenes much sexier than many several minutes long, full nudity spankings shown in kinky videos. Not only because I often prefer formal scenarios but also because the familiarity with the characters and the relationships between the characters make a smack erotic and meaningful to me.

Lessons learned:

An American friend once wrote that she had been told only Republicans watched NCIS. In my opinion the above excerpts show that one doesn't have to be a Republican at all in order to like the series – being kinky is all that it takes to enjoy the show. Oh, and I am obviously a uniform fetishist. Who would have thought?

I love this! What a treat to find.

Love the vids and your wonderful backstory on Gibbs, but honey, Mark Harmon all grown up and too good to live? Nuf said.

I will watch with all your depth now :)

"Dominant territorial" You HAVE been watching a lot of the Dog Whisperer! Lol! I've never gotten into NCIS myself, but you are not alone in the Gibbs crush. Whenever a character/celebrity fantasy top discussion comes up I see a whole lot of Gibbs. Also Alan Rickman.

Gibbs is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, but I can't help taking kinky pleasure in the show. Better than the head slaps are the puzzled "hey, ow, what did I do!" replies that remind me so much of light-hearted spanking play.

There is a very good reason for Gibbs never slapping Abby Sciuto. It is because one Top can spot another Top :)

I love this series and am not right wing at all. The "Republicans only" theory is a little floored IMHO.

I am so glad Indy pointed out this post on twitter, because I am a huge fan of NCIS (and absolutely not a republican, btw) and especially Gibbs. Mmmmm. Gibbs.

Also, if I were ever going to have a crush on a girl, Abby would be in the top two.

@ Emen:
I'm glad you like the post! And I generally prefer grown-up men, too. ;-)

@ Lea:
Yep, I guess I definitely watch Dog Whisperer too often. ;-) I assume that there are some less common kinky fantasy characters on my list as well. But I have to admit that Severus Snape is on the list, too.

@ Indy:
Yes, especially Tony's reactions are often stunning. ;-) And thank you for having posted a link on Twitter!

@ Spankedhortic:
I remember your post about Abby, Prefectdt! She definitely has top qualities. One just has to look at that one head slap which she dishes out to Tony. I could imagine her to be game for some playful switching as well, though. At least she didn't seem to be shocked by Gibbs' threat to spank her.

@ thiskinkylife:
Welcome Emma, and thanks a lot for stopping by and for having posted a Twitter link as well! And thanks a lot for pointing Indy's Twitter link out to me. I saw that there was a Twitter link (in the blogger statistic) but couldn't figure out who posted it. Since I am not on Twitter, I usually haven't got much of a clue what's going on there.

NCIS is really cool, isn't it? And I can absolutely relate to what you say about Abby! She is not only geeky, smart and cool, she is sexy, too.

It was really funny to read your post, since I've watched the show with the same perverted eyes. I agree that the head slaps are more erotic than full on nude bdsm movies, but I tend to blame the lame stories and bad acting of the porn world. Movies from the fifties prove that spanking in movies can be really sexy.. yes, terribly chauvinistic, but oh so yummy

@ suburbanbdsm:
I assume there are quite a few fellow kinksters who watch NCIS with the same perverted eyes! :-)

I adore this show and have long wished to be Abby receiving a spanking from Gibbs...sigh... Love that video clip, but I most love the look he gives he when she chips part of his boat off (when she's being stalked by her ex-boyfriend.)!

I met Mark and his family once in real life and they were very nice folks, I just didn't realize who they were till much later. :) D'oh!

Nice article!
