Hanky Spanky MN

Did you know that Minnesota has it's very own spanking group?

Hanky Spanky MN was started a few years back by a lovely Minnesota lady who attended a few spanking parties in Chicago and asked herself, "Why don't we have something like this back in the Land of 10,000 Lakes?  A group for spankers and spankees who want to play and explore their spanking interests in a safe, sane and consensual environment."  I often asked myself the same question but, unlike me, she did something about it and Hanky Spanky MN came into existence.

Hanky Spanky MN is an attempt to build a spanking community right here in the Twin Cities.  Whether you're a pure Spanko or whether spanking is just one of the many kinks you find interesting--whether you're a veteran of the spanking game or have just recently read a few popular books and are finding yourself intrigued by some of the Spanking passages--this is the place for you.  The group is all about spanking, period.  It's the only activity this group engages in.  Check your other kinky interests at the door.

The group is looked after by four moderators, two men and two women, so you should be able to find someone to talk to that you feel comfortable with..  I'm fortunate enough to currently be one of the Mods..  We have a munch--a non-play meet and mingle talkfest--on the 4th Tuesday of every month.  Please note that the fourth Tuesday of every month is not necessarily the last Tuesday of every month.  This month, for example, our next munch is next week, Oct. 23rd.  The munches are from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at a local restaurant.  We have a private room there so the conversation can be free-flowing and you can say the word, "spanking" without having to censor yourself or look around to see if anyone overheard you.  Some of the moderators are always in attendance,, so please feel free to introduce yourself to them, and they'll be more than happy to try and answer any questions you may have.  Plus, there'll be a room full of other people to meet and chat with.

Usually about halfway through the evening, the moderators will get up, say a few words of greeting, make any announcements they may have, and then give everyone a chance to introduce themselves.  Then it's back to food, fun and fellowship.  It's a warm and accepting group of people, and it's an excellent way to meet others who share that spanking interest.

In addition to the munches, we also have spanking play parties.  We usually try to have one of these about every other month, but that schedule can sometimes get thrown off.  The parties are usually hosted at someone's home, so the number of people that can attend is limited.  What we usually do when we announce a party is ask that those interested apply for an invitation.  Once we get the applications, the moderators try to make up a guest list.  We do our best to invite an equal number of men and women, and also try to keep the number of spankers and spankees equal, as well.  Notices will then be sent out to all the applicants letting them know if their application to the party has been accepted and inviting them  to attend.  If we get too many applications, some people will wind up on a "wait list".  They'll be notified of that status, as well.  Then, if there any openings due to unexpected cancellations, we will notify the appropriate number of people from the waiting list.

As mentioned, the parties are held at the homes of some of our members..  House rules and directions are also sent out at the same time as the invitations.  Everyone is asked to bring some food to share, and after that...well, how much fun you have is pretty much up to you.  These are play parties, so spanking is certainly going to take place.  Talk, get to know people, and who knows what might happen?  No one is under any obligation to play--if someone asks, "No, thank you" is a perfectly acceptable response.  On the other hand, it is a play party, after all.  There's plenty of willing laps and bottoms, so why not meet people, make some new friends, and indulge in a spanking....or two....or three?

You can find Hanky Spanky MN in one of two ways.  If you're on FetLife (, look for and join the Minnesota Spanking Group.  That's our presence on FetLife, and you can find announcements about the munches, parties and other information there.  Or you can jump right in and join our Yahoo group.  The Yahoo group is the main group.  You don't need to belong to the Yahoo group to attend a munch, but you do need to be a member to attend a party.  You also should have attended a munch and spoken to at least one of the moderators.  You can find us by signing into Yahoo and going to  One rule we do have for the Yahoo group,though:  No trolling.  The group is there to help us build that spanking community.  It's not a private playground for you to troll for dates and hook-ups.  Any posts of that nature will be taken down by the moderators, and you may be placed on a moderated status, limiting your access to the group.

When you subscribe to the group, if your age isn't listed in your Yahoo profile, be sure to add a comment stating your age.  At the very least let us know that you are over 18.

Minnesota spankos, unite!  It's time to make yourself known and explore your spanking interest.  Join Hanky Spanky MN today, and perhaps we'll see you at the Oct. 23rd munch.  Details about the munch are on FetLife and on the Yahoo group.

(Please note:  Hanky Spanky MN is a spanking group in Minnesota aimed at people who live in Minnesota or are frequent visitors here.  If you live in, oh, Carpel Tunnel, Nevada and never get up this way, then this probably is not the group for you.)

It sounds like a wonderful, well-organized group. Of course it would b e if you are one of the moderators. Every city should have a group just like yours.

Hmm. This certainly seems interesting. However, social pressure being what it is, it's not an interest I can easily pursue. Also, I'm barely of age, and really new to all of this. Advise?

Hermione--I agree, every city should have one. I'm happy to contribute, but I think most of the group's success is due to the hard work of the lady who started it and the efforts of the other moderators. They've been fantastic.

Anonymous--I'm not sure what "social pressure" you're referring to, but my best advice? Wait until you can "easily pursue" the interest. You have to be comfortable enough with the interest and free enough to find the time to look into it. And of legal age, of course....
Take your time. Hopefully, we'll still be around.
