But in Phoenix, after promising — and at first delivering — surpluses, she left behind a $2.6 million debt and an alienated volunteer base.
Those two things are connected: There’s a lot of overlap in the Venn diagram of volunteers and donors.

Why not New Wave?
The latest wave?
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
