From Prisoner of Narnia: How C. S. Lewis Escaped by Adam Gopnik in the 21 November 2005 issue of the New Yorker:

"Lewis developed and craved what even his Christian biographer, Jacobs, calls 'mildly sadomasochistic fantasies'; in letters to a (homosexual) friend, he named the women he’d like to spank, and for a time signed his private letters 'Philomastix' -- 'whip-lover.'

That's just so weird. I could have imagined Lewis as someone who liked getting spanked...but as someone who liked TO spank? Amazing.

But then, people say the same thing about me.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm to look for the hidden spanking references in the Space Trilogy and the Chronicles of Narnia.
