Spanko-Style Advertising

Now I know what it's like to have a number one hit. For about five days, Author Gets Spanked (starring Niki Flynn and yours truly) held the distinction of being the most watched video ever on Spanking Tube. It recently slipped back to second place, but hey - five days! That's, like, almost a week. We will hit 200,000 views soon.

Not bad for a clip that wasn't even intended for Spanking Tube in the first place. One day in June, Niki and I decided that it would be fun to make some quick little promos for Dances with Werewolves (that's her book, in case you've been living under a rock for the past year). "Hey, you could play my editor and spank me!" That was set up and shot in about three minutes. Here is another clip that took even longer. We made them all with a "general release" on YouTube in mind, which is why there isn't any nudity.

All the same, our first YouTube upload was quickly removed "due to terms of use violation". I have no idea why - there are many similar "tame" spankings on the site. Maybe it was the fact that this one promoted an erotic memoir. Needless to say, my polite inquiries at the YouTube help desk (here's an oxymoron) remained unanswered, so I still don't know which (if any) rules we broke.

(Speaking of rules: even though the YouTube terms of use state that "we do not permit hate speech", you can find a continuous supply of racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim or anti-gay videos there. Some of them have been up for months - apparently, Nazi propaganda and Jihadist pamphlets are no reason to get in a hurry. But post a humorous clip of spanking between (fully clothed) consenting adults, and the good folks at YouTube will take it down within two days. God forbid, somebody might be offended by this stuff!)

But enough of that. You did get to see our "vanilla friendly" promos on Spanking Tube, and the irony is that they are now two of the most viewed videos there. As a thank you to everyone who watched (and because I'm a shameless self-promoting narcissist), I'm posting a high quality version for download today: link

Oh, and lest I forget, the package also contains a third, previously unreleased clip: Niki Flynn's first public reading from "Dances with Werewolves". That's right, a true world premiere. You all know how much Niki loves the idea of reading aloud in front of an audience - the last time she was asked to do it, she opted for a public spanking instead (as one would, given that it's a far less daunting prospect). So you can imagine how much she has been looking forward to this moment. Always willing to go that extra mile for the fans (and for persuasive German friends).

Step in front of the class, Miss Flynn.

mmmm love it!! I'm a real fan of 'fly on the wall' having done it that way most times in my own movies. Of course Niki's gorgeous bottom is a bonus as ever. Thanks for sharing!

Really nice video.

YouTube is bizarrely prudish! Sorry you had problems.
