The Spanking Experiments, 3 

Despite her strict upbringing and meddling family, Glynis Coleman has entertained fantasies of being flogged all her adult life. But until she decided to answer an ad on a BDSM site, seeking participants for a survey on impact play, she had given up hope of fulfilling those fantasies in real life. And guilt over them led her to teach history in a Catholic high school, thus decreasing her chances of meeting anyone interested in indulging her secret desires.  

Asa Baker, the Dom at Sensations who introduces her to impact play during one erotic night at the club, is everything she’s ever dreamed of. Handsome, charming, and he loves to use a flogger. Asa has been searching for the woman of his dreams, and it doesn’t take him long to realize he’s found that woman in Glynis. Now all he has to do is convince her of the same thing. 

Be Warned: BDSM, flogging, spanking


I’m shivering although the room is not cold, and once again I’m seized with a desperate urge to cover up. His jaw goes slack, and his gaze roams over my naked body. Either he’s a fabulous actor, or that unbridled lust is real. It can’t be, can it? This beautiful man, who would have to do no more than crook his finger at a woman to have her, is gaping at me?


“Damn. I had no idea you would be this sexy in person.” He crosses the space between us in two strides. “You agreed to sexual touching if it came to that, correct?” The question is almost desperate, and I have to force back a moan.




“I use condoms. And I have no diseases.”


“I have none either.” I’ve barely had sex. Should I tell him that? This surreal moment is more than I’m able to handle. My pulse is racing.


He’s still staring at me, glancing up and down my body. Now, he walks around me, and this is more than I’m equipped to deal with. My legs are trembling. They won’t stop, no matter how much I will them to.


“You are stunning, Glynis. Absolutely beautiful.”


I stay silent because the simple truth is that I don’t believe him. But despite that, when he pushes up against my backside and wraps his arms around me, I cry out softly at the intense arousal coursing through me.


“I’m going to flog you with each of these floggers you chose. Your lovely, round ass will be pink, then red and puffy. By morning, it will be bruised and purple. You will have trouble walking.”


Those words wash over me, sending chills up and down my spine until I’m arching my back so my ass rubs against the bulge in his leather pants. I imagine him holding me down and fucking me senseless, after he flogs me until I can hardly breathe. My pussy contracts in tiny spasms, and my clit throbs.


“What do you think about that?” His voice is deep and sultry in my ear, and his breath hot against my skin.


“I think it’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever heard.”


“Good girl.” That silky phrase sends more shivers down my spine, as if hearing it confirms everything I’ve ever wanted in life. I want to hear those words again, over and over.


“And, if you’re a very good girl…” He cups my breasts, and I moan loudly as fireworks explode inside my head. “I might fuck you, too.”


“Please,” I whisper, unable to stop the word before it leaves my mouth.


His soft chuckle plays over my senses, rendering me helpless in his arms. This is what I’ve waited for, right here and now. It finally has a name, a tangible image, and a scent. I’ve been searching so long I didn’t believe I’d find it, but I was wrong. It exists. It’s real. He is real.


“Let’s see how the flogging goes first.” When he steps away, the sense of loss is overwhelming. The room is suddenly cooler. This time, I do wrap my arms around my body but only because I miss the warmth of his touch. My own arms are a poor substitute.

The TBR Pile
Written by Bella on 16th Aug 2017

Glynis is tired of her strict upbringing and conservative ways. She answers an ad at a BDSM site for impact play. Her greatest fantasy is to be flogged. She soon meets Asa who’s been searching for the perfect submissive to call his own. This is the third book in The Spanking Experiments. Glynis is tired of being the good girl and I commend her on her courage to answer that ad. I instantly liked her. Asa is a sexy dom but he hasn’t found that perfect sub yet. When they meet its fireworks and flogging. There is a lot of sexy, naked fun that will get you all hot and bothered. My only issue is that this story is very similar to the previous two. I wish the plot would have been a bit more complex. I still really enjoyed this story. ​ If you’re looking for sexy, stop right here. A Flogging Fantasy is a highly recommended read

The Romance Reviews
Written by Gabrielle on 2nd Aug 2017

FLOGGING FANTASY by Ravenna Tate is book 3 in The Spanking Experiment series and it was enjoyable. Having grown up in an Irish American catholic family, I can totally relate to Glynis' background, family expectations, and personal insecurities, which is balanced against Asa, one of the owners of Sensations and the dominant who is very interested in her. Since this is another newbie into the world of BDSM story, there was some instruction (descriptions) of toys and expectations that were handled well without coming across as instructive, which would have detracted from the feel and pace of the story (so good). And Glynis' drops into subspace and both her physical and emotional reactions were well done. Since this is a shorter story, at least on behalf on Asa, the bit of insta-attraction started before the story began and while this is definitely Glynis' story, I would have loved to hear more from Asa's perspective ("I wish you could see yourself as I do.") given Glynis' insecurities. This is definitely one of those panty-melting stories that once you understand both their backgrounds and how they grew up, it will have you looking forward to the happily ever after.

A Fantasy Come True
Written by Liz Castillo on 29th Jul 2017

You know what they say... "You gotta watch out for those quite Catholic girls." Glynis has yearning to live out a fantasy but has never had the opportunity or the courage to make it come true. Then her luck turned around when comes across an ad looking for participates in a Spanking Experiment. Asa's been looking for the right woman to love, something that could share his love for flogging and BDSM. As owner of the Sensations club he participates in the experiments and can't wait to see how his new participant will react to their night of erotic experiments. Glynis is immediately smitten when she takes in Asa and her feelings deep as the night continues. Asa quickly comes to terms with the knowledge that Glynis is very special and exactly who he's been waiting for. When the nights, will they continue on the journey they started this night, or will the walk away after a sensational night and never look back? Each story in The Spanking Experiments gets better and better. A Flogging Fantasy is a sultry, naughty, satisfying read that will require the reader take a cold shower when finished. I love how Glynis knows what she wants and when in the right company, she isn't afraid to ask for it. She's isn't a fan of her looks, but after years of denying her desires she's not going to let her insecurities hold her back any more. I adore Asa right from the start. The way he carries himself and always making sure Glynis is comfortable is heartwarming. What really makes him endearing is how he jumps feet first into a serious relationship with Glynis. He doesn't wait until the end of the night to make his desires known, he knows what he wants and he goes after it. Swoon! A Flogging Fantasy is a everything it promises to be... a fantasy come true. So if you are yearning for a read that will make your panties melt and leave you sated yet begging for more, then I would highly recommend you puck up this tantalizing tale.

Knotty Girl Reviews
Written by Sandie on 26th Jul 2017

Ravenna Tate. Just seeing her name gives me the tingles. Honestly, she’s one of my favorite BDSM authors…ok, I just plain love her writing. This new series of hers, The Spanking Experiment, has quickly become a fast favorite of mine! I certainly wouldn’t mind if it kept going on and on. We are now on book number three, A Flogging Fantasy, and just the title alone has me all in a tizzy! I would love to be in the heroine’s place! One of the things, (And there are many!) that I love about this series, is that the heroines are all plus size. They are also self-conscious about their bodies and have poor body image. These doms make them feel good about themselves, and if I had any complaint at all about these books is that they are too short! Our heroine responding to the survey this time is Glynis Coleman, an Irish-Catholic school teacher who works in a Catholic High School. (Talk about sexual repression!) She’s had fantasies of being flogged for a long time, but being Catholic, and being raised in a family who believes in old-fashioned arranged marriages, she’s has to repress her urges. Enter dominant Asa Baker, one of the owners of Sensations BDSM club, and the dom who chose her. They spend quite the incredible night together, learning a lot about each other. Has Glynis found her match? You’ll love this book! Despite the short length, it’s full of spicy and erotic flogging scenes and good old fashioned romance!

Book 3/The Spanking Experiments. Ravenna Tate has outdone herself again with another amazing book in this series!
Written by Pam Stanton on 24th Jul 2017

A Flogging Fantasy is book 3 in Ravenna Tate's The Spanking Experiments series, and it's another winner. Although it's not necessary to read the first two books of the series to understand and enjoy this one, I do highly recommend all three books. This entire series has been a unique and surprising experience for me as a reader in that each story has been told from a first-person viewpoint, that of the heroine in each book. This is very unusual but Ms. Tate has made it work and work very well. Glynis Coleman is a young, mild-mannered, high school history teacher who's answered one of the ads placed by Sensations, a BDSM club, for a survey conducted by the Dominants at the club regarding impact play. Glynis is as smart as a whip and very good at her job, including wrangling high school students. That truly takes skill. But outside of school? She's shy, unsure of herself, and has always fantasized about BDSM, flogging in particular. She's gone through the survey's rigorous screening process, read all the forms, completed all the paperwork, watched all the videos, done all the research. But now that she's actually at Sensations, she's second guessing herself. Can she really go through with this? Sure, she's had flogging fantasies nearly all her adult life. But does reality ever live up to the fantasy? Or will she find herself disappointed, lost, even humiliated again, just like in the past? Asa Baker is one of the co-owners of Sensations and a Dominant in every sense of the word. He helped design the survey for inexperienced submissives to participate in impact play, a survey created so that a certain number of submissives would be assigned to each Dom participating. Glynis is Asa's fifth and final submissive. But Glynis is completely unaware of this when she walks into the room to meet Asa. As she does, and her eyes adjust to the low-level lighting in the room, she's totally blown away! Asa is every woman's dream. How can he possibly want to go through this experiment with her? She's a nobody, a sexually inexperienced high school history teacher that no man has ever expressed any kind of interest in. There's no way her fantasies about flogging, impact play, and bondage can ever come true now, right? He's made a mistake. Surely he's going to throw her out. She's absolutely nothing special. What can Asa possibly see in her to make him even want to complete the experiment? She was never prepared for anything like this. How can any of this work in any way? It has to be a huge mistake! I have personally identified with every female protagonist in each of the three books in this series, but perhaps none more so than Glynis. In very many ways, she could well be me. Her life experiences to a large degree mirror my own. I felt her every emotion. To say that tears flowed from the beauty and deep emotions of the story would be a huge understatement. But it's not just Glynis and her experiences that drew me in. Asa's story is totally authentic in every way. Seeing him and Glynis' shared interactions through her eyes made me acutely aware that the things aren't always as they seem. The feelings, emotions, history and background of both characters are all so beautifully written that you can't help but feel the anticipation, happiness, desire, fear, despair, disbelief, and reality of everything that occurs. As Glynis learns what submission is, as well as what she can and can't accept, you learn right alongside her. It's a beautiful story filled with poignancy and deep emotion. One final note. This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and BDSM sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. PLEASE USE THESE RESOURCES. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. IT'S NOT FAIR TO THE AUTHOR! She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice. I give A Flogging Fantasy my highest recommendation without reservation. Thank you, Ravenna Tate, for once again giving us such a wonderful book that shows your hard work, your mastery of the genre, and your amazing writing talent! Kudos for such a remarkable book and series! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!

They both like to delve into the darker side of play
Written by merlyn0121 on 20th Jul 2017

Ravenna Tate has done it again. Loving the relatable characters. We meet Asa and Glynis. Glynis has fantasies, ones that she has been unable to fulfill. She dreams of flogging and pain. Asa could be the man to help fulfill these fantasies. They seem to have much in common. They both like to delve into the darker side of play, share similar religious upbringing. This third book in the series I think may be my favorite of the series. Makes you root for them through the whole book.

I really enjoyed this journey and the hot sex that went with ...
Written by Mela1953 on 17th Jul 2017

This book seems to be the most intense of the three books so far. In my opinion, Glynis has fantasies that involve more pain than the others. It makes for a much more interesting book in that it's not the same ole same ole. Glynis was brought up in a strict Catholic background where she was heavy, was ridiculed by the boys and, to top it all off, her thoughts were sacrilegious to her faith. She wanted to be flogged and she wanted to feel the pain. So she signed up for the impact survey at the Sensations Club, where she meets Asa. There's starts the journey of Glynis and Asa. He shows her how he views her as opposed to how she views herself while giving her the fantasy of a lifetime. I really enjoyed this journey and the hot sex that went with it. I hope there are more books in this series.

Love this series
Written by Rhonda on 16th Jul 2017

In the third book of the series, we have Asa and Glynis. ( love the names) Glynis has always had fantasies of some of the darker elements of BDSM but didn't know where to turn! And not being comfortable with her body, she would just fantasize about this. When she answers an ad for a "Spanking Experiment", she answers it not expecting to be called in. And imagine her surprise when Asa, one of the Doms who owns the club, shows a very keen interest in her and picks her! I love how the characters talk to each other during this story and it's not a Dom demanding a sub to obey him. They each have things in their pasts. Will Glynis get her forever after with Asa and will Asa find the woman of his dreams in Glynis? To find out, get the book and find out.
