I love this but it makes me feel just a little conflicted: Here's why. I am a proud, Teutonic Heathen. But I am also a lifelong Bi-sexual, Spanking enthusiast & to top it off, aftercare is arguably my favorite part of spanking/being spanked. So we have three things that I personally love here, Our Gods (granted that they are the marvel version) & M/m Spanking with post spanked forgiveness. So is this kinda like blasphemy? I know that our faith isn't a dumb, dualistic belief system that has such strict rules about what is or isn't sacrilege, but it still makes me feel kinda weird to love this so much.
Well I feel like art should be objective and speaks differently to the individual, It should make you think and look at a subject differently than you have before. a persons own perspective is what is taken into account with images such as these. What I felt when I drew this was showing strength in comfort and forgiveness, even if it is not deserved or does not make much sense. Of course it is draw from the Marvel universe where the characters I feel are far and separate from the original Thor and Loki in Norse writings, I see them as not the same. That being said I simply love drawing the different aspects of discipline with characters you would not usually see participating in such activities, and not in sexual ways, and that pretty much sums up all of my art.
I personally believe (from my own practice) that forgiveness is an essential part of spanking play. That's one thing that really stood out about your piece that I love. What made me feel conflicted by it (not offended mind you, just conflicted) was that it was based loosely on Dunner, my patron Asa, and it was kinda...well...arousing!
One of the problems that many people have who live in a judeo-xtian world & have discovered their ancestors Pagan path is that we still have a tendancy to see our Gods, Goddesses, ethics, e.t.c. through the same judeo-xtian lens. That perspective is hard to shake & it takes a lot of time-even for people who have been Heathen (or any other type of Pagan) for years.
Just for the record, Dunner spanking Loki isn't beyond the realm of possibility, but Loki is not the Norse/Teutonic "Satan". I know that you weren't saying that, but it is worth it to bring that out because way too many people believe that. Loki is actually the shadow side of ValFather Wodun himself. It is for that reason that ValFather said that he must never be toasted unless Loke is toasted with him.
And just one final thing for some of the people who see this as "Sexual Spanking" because of the aftercare. Spanking forgiveness is NOT necessarily sexual-anymore than adult spanking is overtly sexual from start to finish. Spanking in the context of consenting adults (The only way it should be practiced) is "psycho-sexual" in nature. But you can have the warmest embrace at the spanking's conclusion and never have or want to have sex. I will not top or bottom to anyone who won't show forgiveness when you say that you're sorry.
This is adorable. But tbh, I rather think Loki would like being spanked. He'd probably ask Thor to do it, but Thor wouldn't be happy about it. Also I think Loki would probably have this sort of arrogance, where he'd look down at you and wouldn't waste his time if you couldn't spank him *properly*.
D’awwwwwww. Poor little Loki. *pushes Thor out of the way and hugs Loki instead* (and I’d have to be pretty strong to be able to do that… )
I just love his facial expression so much. It’s like he suddenly realized, in the middle of crying, that he's being hugged and is thoroughly disgusted at the same time. We all know he loves being hugged. He just won’t admit it.
