Kneeling At His Boots

The riding crop, the shiny boots, the abject kneeling — if it looks to you like something out of a bad WWII novel with Nazi villains, it’s because it is.

bad book about evil nazis

Or, at least, that was the marketing hook — apparently the book for which this was the cover (something called Blood on the Rhine) did not fully live up to the lurid character of the cover art.

    Somehow I got wired emotions about this picture. Maybe because I am German, although I was born long after the war. For me spanking is something erotic and fun that picture shows a riding crop, which to me is an instrument of joy, used by a Nazi who uses it as an instrument of terror. So this image is not particularly erotic to me. To me Nazi terror is a too serious topic to be intermixed with erotic spanking. Still of course I don’t want to discourage anybody from finding enjoyment in such things.

    Fair enough, Dirk. I especially appreciate how you expressed your sentiments without trying to impose them on anyone else.

    I’m always fascinated by the way people assign meaning, even morality, to ambiguous or fictional images. Two months ago it was a drawn cartoon about a naked whipping in what looks like a prison camp setting. The picture here is a posed photo of someone kneeling in front of someone else in a dark uniform with no visible insignia. We put the “Nazi” in the photo ourselves, with our knowledge of history and symbolism. The Nazis, in other words, are in our heads, not in the photo.

    This is especially so when we know that the photo is posed — staged by two hired models and a photographer. No actual Nazis present, no real terror. Nobody’s feelings hurt in the making of the photo.

    Dirk, my own appreciation of the spanking kink is similar to yours — a collection of erotic and fun games. But I know that a lot of people have and enjoy very dark fantasies indeed, finding them erotic and sometimes even therapeutic. So, even though something isn’t automatically erotic to me, I can recognize it as something that might be erotic to other readers here, well within the scope of the big tent that is “adult erotic spankings”.

    I basically agree with what you said. There is one detail you must have overlooked. In the background there is a person wearing a red armlet with a white circle and something black in the circle. The only kind of people I know who had these were the Nazis. I am German and I had to study some mathematics so I am a bit pedantic. So there are visible insignia.

  4. SpankBoss commented on February 28th, 2008:

    I’ll take your word for it Dirk — all I can see in the background are indistinct black and white splotches that may be somebody wearing a uniform. But I’ve got impaired color vision, little splashes of red aren’t usually visible to me. I’m also not certain that shadowy figures in the background really affect the analysis, all that much.

    I know this is coming two years after the original post, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that this is meant to be a totalitarian image, Nazi or not. I happen to be rather into this sort of thing, so I find it very erotic. You’d be surprised how many women are into a rather transgressive, totalitarian kink. You’d also be surprised to learn how many of them are Jewish women. And perhaps even more surprised to learn how many of these Jewish women are holocaust scholars, like myself. We have a very complex psychology, not the least of which is a strong sexual Stockholm syndrome that can be quite cathartic. It’s like we want to make love, not war, with our darkest enemies–who are essentially inside ourselves. The totalitarianism, the uniforms, the boots–they’re all symbols, albeit very powerful ones.

    Well. I´m a German as well and I llike authentic backgrounds, and of course I love Gerrman uniforms of old days. The uniforms of the BRD are rather boring.

    I like authentic witch-interrogations, as well. It doesn´t hinder me from being an atheist. So what´s wrong about the old real terrible-good looking German uniforms?
