    A Recollection

    I just remembered how much curious I was, as a child, to see the marks left on my colleagues’ skin after they got a spanking at home. This happened to me at the age of the short trousers, when I was as much afraid to be spanked as I was fascinated by spanking. We all knew that...

    My Poor Friend

    The Slipper, Ruler And Cane

    I went to school in the 1960s and into the 1970s, and teachers were able to smack you if you were naughty. Actually you didn't even need to be all that naughty, simply turning your head to look at a fellow classmate could get you into trouble. It was smacking on your legs or...

    I went to a private Christian grade school in

    Michigan in the 1980s. Paddling was a normal punishment; and they would send home a pink slip for your parent to sign, which for me and all the kids I knew well, meant a much more serious (in my case bare butted) spanking back at my own house.
