I have just finished the process of rereading every Heinlein book, and making note of every major reference to spanking or spanking scene that I came across. There are a few smaller mentions, which I am not going to bother to note since they were very short and there are so many. Heinlein was, for instance, very fond of the phrase “Mama spank.” and it was used frequently. Some of those are mentioned, but not all.

The quotes and scenes are, to my knowledge, exact (barring any typos). In most circumstance, when the reference was in the middle of a section or paragraph, I have done my best to include the whole paragraph. As much as possible has been included, but of course, it is always better to read the whole book and see it in context.

A lot of his stories have been reprinted in several different collections. I have usually noted that the story was also found in other books. This list does not include any Non-Fiction works by Heinlein, such as Tramp Royale. As far as I know there are no references in those works. If you know of any Sci-Fi or Fantasy novels by Robert A. Heinlein, which are not listed on this page, I would appreciate hearing about them!
