Jenni Mack is probably best-known for being a cute, redheaded spankee, but you’ll find Jenni on both sides of a spanking. Jenni is not only all over the internet in spanking scenes as a top and bottom, but she can also be found at parties with her Ma’am where they both take sessions. The Arizona-based switch has appeared in scenes with some of the biggest names in spanking since bursting onto our screens. She can not only take a very hard spanking but she can dish out hard punishments too with equal ease.
Jenni was kind enough to answer our questions in May 2012…
Your blog’s title is “My Dirty Little Secret“. Why is it called that?
At the time my blog was born, I was in a very transitional period in my life. I had decided that I wanted to pursue my spanking interest beyond just having fantasies about it. I had repressed the desire for a number of years, thinking I was wrong, dirty, and quite the pervert. Through some tough experiences, I was forced to take a good long look at what I wanted and needed to be happy. Spanking and being ‘out’ sexually was the answer for me at that time. What started out as ‘My Dirty Little Secret’ evolved into a journey of personal growth and self acceptance I am quite proud to walk with all of the kinky folks I have met.
What do you like about being spanked?
I am a greedy girl when it comes to spanking and happily say that all of the above would suffice to explain the very least about what I enjoy in spanking. The best part for me is the connection and energy with the person I am playing with (on the Top or bottom side) It’s all about chemistry.
Does being spanked turn you on?
Oh my God, YES! Spanking is my sex and has been for a very long time. Vanilla sex doesn’t do anything for me and has never been a turn on. I am one of the lucky ones who can orgasm just from a spanking. Nothing turns my crank more.
How did you progress from being a spank-o to going to parties, doing sessions and appearing in spanking movies?
My development in the spanking community actually happened in reverse order. I appeared in my first spanking movie for Shadowlane called Mischief Makers 3. That was my first public spanking and was very adventurous for me to do. I remember thinking, “Oh God, thousands of people are going to see my butt!” That was a huge stepping stone and really hard for me to wrap my head around at the time. I was always known as the shy girl with her nose in a book and to see my face (and bare bottom) on the internet for everyone to see was such a huge high. From there, I began doing sessions with my Dominant, Miss Chris, and later that same summer went to my first Spanking Party at Shadowlane. My life has been a stream of parties, events, teaching classes, doing videos, and living my kink everyday 24/7. I am very grateful everyday to be able to live my dream.
For someone who hasn’t met you at a party or seen one of your movies can you describe what you are like as a sub/bottom?
I have a wide range of personas I assume as a bottom. It very much depends on the Top I am playing with, my mood and the role-play (if any) as to what bottom head space I assume. I enjoy the occasional bratty scene and when the Top can ‘put me in line’. I am also very much into pleasing the person I am playing with, so I can be quite compliant and contrite when OTK. I have a very high pain tolerance and I’m especially passionate about canes, leather, and whips. When my Dominant and I play, She can take me on a journey to a level so deep inside myself that the room disappears and pain blossoms into waves of pleasure that I transition into an euphoric state. It’s really a beautiful experience.
What implements do you like and which do you not like? What’s your most dreaded implement?
I am highly allergic too wood! I break out in horrible red splotches J teasing. While I am not a huge fan of wood, I can be worked up to taking a decent paddling or hair brushing. My most dreaded implement, one I live in fear of, is the tawse. I hate, hate, HATE having that ‘thing’ used on my hands. As a spanko, I like any and all play on my bottom. When I am in need of discipline, though, Ma’am will tawse my palms as punishment. Needless to say I am an Angel….most of the time.
Do you switch? Do you like being on top?
Yes! I am very much a bottom with switch like tendencies. I enjoy topping and taking people on a journey. I derive my pleasure in seeing their needs met. I am also a bit sadistic in that I enjoy giving a hard caning or strapping to a bottom that can handle what I can dish out. Again, it’s about the connection and I like to think I am helping someone by giving them the experience that they need.
If spanking hadn’t been invented have you thought about what you might be doing instead?
Probably pondering some other way to get myself off. *laughs*
Really, I would be a mess. Spanking and kink are both fundamental parts of who and what I am. I found my Family of Choice, my loves, and myself through the Lifestyle. I don’t think I would have been very happy, authentic, or even who I am supposed to be without it.
I like your new tattoo, is there a story behind it?
It has been a decade in the making . I spent 17 hours under the needle of a wonderful local Artist who has tattooed all over the world for the last 30 years, Sting (www.stings-tattoo-studio.com). I had the Kushiel’s Dart rose (my birth flower), an antique key (my personal symbol), and Ivy (Ma’am’s personal symbol) tattooed on my back. I affectionately refer to it my Marque, which in the BDSM Lifestyle is the equivalent to a collar or promise of submission, service, love, and divine trust.
Ma’am and I celebrated our 5th Anniversary at Darkcon back in January. Along with teaching classes, we did a performance art piece in front of a mostly vanilla audience from the book Kushiel’s Dart in front of the book’s author–Jacqueline Carey. For anyone who is familiar with that series–Ma’am and I did the scene from The Longest Night between the characters Melisade and Phedre.
What does the future hold for Jenni Mack?
Right now, you can expect to see more of my Top side in future videos and more of my bottom side in homegrown videos with my own Dominant. I am planning on attending TASSP, CRIMSON MOON, and SHADOWLANE this summer. My Ma’am and I will be taking sessions at each event, so I hope to meet some new folks in need of a good bottom warming!
As for my vanilla life—I will be enjoying some much needed time off. Ma’am and I have a vacation to Thailand coming up. Time in the garden and with my two puppies is in order, along with poolside-wet-bare-bottom-spankings my Ma’am oh so loves to give!
