I have a question regarding the disciplining of my 10 year old son. I have been using spanking as the punishment for bigger offences since he was a child. Yesterday I gave him a spanking, the first one he has gotten from me in a while. Afterwards I noticed he had an erection. I was so taken back by this and didn't know how to respond. I don't understand how he could have gotten any enjoyment from the spanking. The spanking I gave was quite hard and he was crying quite hard. I decided not to make any comment about his erection. I know that boys his age are going though a lot of changes with their bodies, but I want to know how I should have handled the situation. Should I ignore it in the future or should I confront him? Should I have given him the spanking over again?

chat me

its very common, i got them all the time when spanked by my mom, i got it bare up to age 18 and i would spout a bonner, its just normal. having you see is like spanking a little embaressing but at times a little thrill.

If your mom spanked you bare till you were 18 you should post a story about it on here !

too many to mention just ask me and i will tell you everything

Thanks for that I will mail you !

noticed this story is form 12' are you still spanking your son? Is he still having the same reaction or was it a one time thing?
Would love to talk more, add me.

I would not repeat the spanking but be careful if he gets erect every time you spank him. That would suggest he is getting turned on & you should either use other discipline methods or talk to a parenting expert. You do not want to be getting a 10 yr old turned on by spanking from his mother.

Sometimes a guy can't help getting an erection, and often it happens at an inappropriate time. Your son probably doesn't know why he had an erection and probably was pretty embarrassed by it.

I also wonder what you were wearing but you didn't say what he was wearing? Was he completely naked? Do you always make him ***** for a spanking? Hard to tell without the whole story but I think you did the right thing by not commenting. Please add me. I can elaborate on my spankings....

Curious maybe something triggered him. what were you wearing immediately before and during the spanking?

April my mom gave me spankings till I was 15.. as well as my brothers and my sister, we were made to stand in the corner after naked,, the embarrassment added to the punishment, and i usually lost my erection if I got one.

I am not sure spanking ever accomplishes anything. There is a certain point where it just doesn't work. Reward good behavior. Talk with you son. He should always ask himself two questions before he acts out. 1 Is this going to make me happy? 2 Is this going to make my parents happy. If the answer to either question is no don't do it! The lad is going to make mistakes. Show him the error of his ways.

Thats whats wrong with kids now. parents are to busy trying to be the sweet caring best friends of their kids and not a real parent...I know whats in my kids room and monitor what they do pretty closely...I don't have time for the time out approach..

so true, you have to be proactive, a sore butt never hurt anyone, kids need discipline

Hey I got it pretty good as a kid. I just figured if it was worth the beating I did it. Believe me I wasn't a friend to my kids and didn't spank them. There were lines they didn't cross. When you don't work you don't get paid. When you don't behave you don't get to do what you want. Nothing like a little house work instead of a movie or TV show. **** my mom made me clean windows. To this fricking day I hate to clean windows.
Dispite what you'll read on this site beating the kid doesn't work. I love that old saying a slap on the *** never hurt me..Really.

totally agree, especially with boys

you should be spanked too!

I was growing up...that is why i have respect for other people..which is hard to find in the US anymore!!!

You should be spanked more now!

Males of any age get uncontrollable erections. Period, as you say in the US.

At that age his penis might have just re acted. If it happens again. Talk to him about it. Get his thoughts

It's a normal response. Spanking on your buttocks makes blood run into that area and beyond. That's why he had an erection.

I always get an erection when getting spanked as well

Why would you spank him again unless you wanted to see if his reaction would be sexual. His response was very normal as is the same with women. Even though there is pain, erotic response is almost expected. Maybe you even got a little wet or your nipples hardened when you think about it.

ignore it for now

ignore it and spanked again if needed he is at that age dont worry. now if he starts acting out causing you to spank him more and more then find something different

it's a sign: stop spanking!!!

i don't think it's an issue and you don't need to talk to him about it, but for the sake of your own understanding of how he could have enjoyed it you may want to consider a couple of factors. i'll put to you two possibilities at extremes of how it could happen. if when you spanked him he was fully dressed and you were also, and if the only contact between you was your hand on the seat of his trousers (plus perhaps such as having hold of the collar of his shirt to prevent him running away or being sent flying by your spanks), the there is every chance he may have been hard because he got a sexual thrill from the spanking, either the pain of it or just the idea of having been a naughty boy. on the other hand if you pulled down his trousers and pants, or he was naked anyway, and if, being as you say in another post that you are often naked around the house, you were naked also, and you put him across your knee to spank him, then since his penis may well have been in contact with your thigh, especially the soft inner part, then the impact from your spanks would have quite likely meant that your thigh was in effect caressing his penis and so that would be understandably the likeliest cause of his erection. obviously there are many variables between these two scenarios but the greater similarity to one or the other situation may be an indication of the probable cause of his penis being erect. as i said i don't think there's any need for concern either way, it's all natural, but analyzing it may help you ascertain what it was about the experience that he enjoyed and got his erection for.

i think it is normal and for you to make an issue of it could cause him to become mental about it... just ignore it and let it go... and spanking him again is not a good thing... i do not believe in spanking unless it is for something very serious...

hello april miss u

Not that uncommon. It happened to us at school when lining up for spankings. We certainly weren't getting turned on by the thought of what was coming!

It's hard for me to belive that a 10 year old get erection when spanked. I have raised a son myself and spanked him too, but never notice any erections before he was 13 - 14 years. Then I just ignored it, and it soon dissapeard when the spankings starts.

i think i would ignore it and spanked again

I do they don't get off that easy..

nbe nice to chat to you

No, never confront him about having an erection, that will make him self conscious and especially around you. And of course you don't punish him for having a natural occurrence of the male body. But don't hide from him either. You need to be as accepting of his changes as you would a daughter. I never spanked my son. Guess I just never had a reason. We stayed too busy for anyone to get in much trouble.

you mean you asked him to ***** down for you to spank him??

This happens to young boys.

yes, ignore his erection, but no, I don't condone spanking or any form of corporal punishment

no its normal, i used to get them all the time when i got spanked at home, if you want advise ask me

Did you get them when your mom spanked you !

yes. at first was different, but something that just would happen, so it was kinda expected, as i got older she had a way for me to get rid of them as a second punishment

I got rid of mine over her knee , as I always ended up *********** over her knee when I got spanked , my mom used to think it was funny and just carried on spanking me , saying boys will be boys !

Good thing she did not get more angry, I got an erection in the bath tube, mom saw and quickly left the room and told me to wash myself from now on, and she was angry, I felt ashamed of my body.

Don't know why you felt ashamed , your mom has seen it all before , thought you were going to say she gave you a spanking for getting one !

Having been through that, its better to just ignore it. Boys that age get and erection if the wind blows just right. Its not that he is enjoying it, it could be the embarrassment. As soon as I was told to remove my undies or they were pulled down for a spanking, I had an erection and hoped it was not noticed. I hope that helps. Thanks for writing.

You did the right thing by ignoring it. Its a natural (perhaps involuntary) response to spankings. Even when they really hurt.
