Chicago Spanking Review is a Chicago-based free on-line journal of information and opinion on the the spanking scene, intended for those interested in the subject of adult spanking. Our goals are:

CSR was designed to be easy to navigate - from this page you can reach almost any other page on the site with only two mouse clicks - but it is a very large site, and if you're having trouble finding your way around, try the search box below or take a look at the Navigation Page. For spankings taken from comics books and strips, you can also search the Comics Spanking Data Base (see button below).

Surf Free or Die: This is a free site, something of a throwback to the early, pre-commercial days of the web. There's nothing wrong with commerce, of course - it is after all the lifeblood of the nation - but we're sick of pay sites run on the side by large porno outfits that have no genuine interest in spanking. There are some worthy pay sites of course (usually run by genuine spankos), and you can find a few of them on our links page along with free sites and blogs.
What we stand for: Our focus here is on adult spanking, with sane people engaging in safe, consensual play. Because of this, with some very minor exceptions we don't feature any material on this site involving the disciplinary spanking of children, a subject which can and should be discussed elsewhere (we're against it, by the way, like most spankos we know). Our concern is that if we included spankings of both adults and children, some people might think we were trying to eroticize child-spanking because the larger context in which it was presented included elements of adult erotic spanking as well. Therefore, despite our interest in comics, we won't post any of the numerous comic-book spankings involving Nancy, Li'l Dot, Li'l Jinx, etc. We don't consider Superbaby/Superboy spankings (really attempted spankings) to be a problem because, as will be seen in the Comics Gallery, they never come off. By contrast, there is a panel from an old Superboy that shows Professor Lang spanking a young Lana Lang that we won't post, although we do have an aborted spanking of Lana as an older teen. And we have posted an anti-school paddling article by "Martin" that echoes our own thoughts on the subject.
In the galleries, we try to present interesting examples of popular culture and erotic art, placing them in a social/historical context where appropriate. Most of this has appeared elsewhere, but some of the comics material is from our personal collection or was actually commissioned by us for the site. With the articles the situation is reversed: most are original and have never appeared anywhere else, offering our readers what we hope is a unique and valuable perpective.
Who we are: We (that's an editorial "we") call ourselves the Web-Ed because back in 2004 when we started the site, we didn't like the common term "Webmaster", although given the "master" part, it is somewhat appropriate in the broad context of D/S. We edit this site much the way we would a printed magazine (except that we can't pay contributors), so we shortened "Web Editor" to "Web-Ed". Because of our early involvement in the world of comic books, we also intended a sly reference to Spider-Man, who bore the appellation "Web-head", but this was too obscure to be picked up on by normal people. We won't give any more autobiographical details here, but you'll find bits and pieces scattered throughout the various pages. Every word on this site not specifically attributed or bylined to someone else was written by us.
Our website design philosophy: With the exception of the Bulletin Board, we write all our own code, and without fancy web page creation software either (we use Arachnophilia, simple but extremely useful and versatile freeware, for all HTML, PHP, CSS, and JAVA files). While we could do anything that other sites do (given the cooperation of our site host and the time to analyze and understand the code), we strongly believe in "keeping it simple." We hate the pop-up windows, slow-loading pages waiting for extensive 3rd-party content, and labyrinthine navigation that are all too common on web sites these days. Nor do we appreciate the assumption of some web-designers that every visitor has the latest and greatest browser with every obscure plug-in and extension. The use of flash players to provide picture slideshows in place of simple thumbnails hyperlinked to new pages is another unnecessary complexity all-too-frequently encountered.
We have therefore written simple web pages that display quickly, don't use pop-ups or lengthy scripts, and that can be reached from the home page with a maximum of three mouse clicks (usually two). We have shied away from a lot of video content because in our experience large video files and embedded players cause too many problems. There are plenty of other sites that feature extensive video content. Generally speaking, then, we're not too fond of excessive bells and whistles, but on the other hand we're not completely opposed to modernizing the site somewhat. In 2010 we added over 300 new pages, including some videos, and modified our page templates slightly to improve their appearance.
Submissions: We update the site with additional material whenever we can. Most of it we gathered ourselves, but we are always grateful for submissions although we can't pay for them (the only exception being occasional commissioned works of art). If you have written an article, a work of spanking fiction, or have any pictures (which you own or to which you hold the copyright) that you would like to see posted, please send them along to the web-ed.
