Judging by the number of toots I see for professional female spankers, the business must be booming. I have never seriously considered seeing a pro. Bacall is all the pro I need. I have admired a precious few of them, but most bill themselves as strictly business offering stern looks, severe clothing, and scolding etc. I like a hot bottom, but the woman must be playful. It's the girl next door look for me.
Even if I had never met Bacall I doubt I would have seen a pro simply because paddling is sexual for me. The pro's websites proclaim there will be no sex period. Without a sexual release, a spanking would be no fun for me.
