A new adjective
In the days of my childhood, "spanking" was a verb or a noun. Now, it's an adjective. "Oh, Sehwag has played a spanking cover-drive," they moan. "Oh, that's a spanking straight-drive," they sigh. And if you're into that kind of pleasure you could also wheeze, as you bend submissively in front of your object of desire, "Oh dear! That was a spanking spanking."
