Comments:From "The Politics of Spanking" article by Susan Block

"I don’t remember being spanked more than once when I was a kid, but oh, that once! I was about six and, like most six-year-old girls, I loved my Daddy. He loved me too, but he didn’t tend to show his love physically. So when he spanked me that one time, I was thrilled by the attention, as well as the simple touch of his big strong hand on my excitable bottom. I remember him pulling me out of a large family dinner, after some egregious offense on my part, as my 10-year-old brother tagged along. I was wearing a party dress with a stiff crinoline slip underneath the skirt, and I remember the whole works flying rapturously up over my head as Daddy pulled me over his knee and spanked me in front of said older brother, who was laughing and cheering him on. Of course, this was extremely embarrassing, but also, I must admit, thrilling. He didn't spank me hard; at least I don't remember feeling any pain. If anything, my bottom just tingled with excitement. In fact, despite—or because of—my embarrassment, I was laughing along with my brother and Dad. From that point on, I much preferred spanking to other punishments. Sometimes I would beg my parents to spank me for my many various misdeeds, instead of the much more tedious punishment of being grounded or the more guilt-inducing penalty of a stern reprimand."

Comments:My favorite pictures are the Cynthia Kim drawings especially Mrs.Kim and Cynthia.

Hi. My name is Louise Vancisic (pronounced vankeesich)

I’ll start with the basics. I am a woman, now 52 years old, married and with two grown children. My parents were both raised in Eastern Europe and moved into a Working class Slavic neighborhood in NY.

Even in a traditional authoritarian, male centric community, my parents, being post war immigrants, were known for their strictness. Actually they were known for their strictness with their daughter. I had so many more rules than my friends and what was even harder for me, my younger brother. That was, and still remains, a sore point with me.

At any rate, a few facts about my discipline. My parents most often “corrected” me by spanking. Depending on the “offense” they would use hand, hairbrush or strap. Depending on the method, the number of strokes would vary. Mom administered most of the spankings though when I got the strap it was usually from my father. I believe that the number of smacks was somewhat predetermined but not necessarily held to. Mom was more prone to draw out a spanking so while ten minutes across her lap was fairly typical, the actual number of swats, even by hand, rarely exceeded forty.

I was what you would call a good girl. If my parents only spanked me for disobedience, I wouldn’t have done too badly. But, they saw spanking as a way to modify all kinds of behavior including performance of chores and performance in school. If I got in trouble in school, no matter how minor the infraction, I would be spanked at home. My teachers soon found out that the mere threat of sending me home with a note brought about my instant compliance. Understandably there were not many such incidents. Report card time, however, was a different story. My parents demanded ‘A’s. If I brought home more than one “curved letter” grade, it would be evidence of “laziness” and I’d get a spanking. I will confess that it motivated me to achieve excellence.

I was spanked either on my bare bottom or over my panties. If bare, it was always Mom and always in private. Thank heaven for small things. However, there were fewer compunctions about pulling up my skirt in the presence of other close family, including my brother. He got his beatings from Dad but they were always private affairs.

Perhaps the punishment I feared most was getting spanked in the morning before school. Needless to say I was extra careful in the morning and made any confessions the evening before. Still, I couldn’t totally avoid those instances where I left the house still crying.

As to frequency, it varied with my age. Prior to age 10, I was rarely punished for issues of “responsibility” so I probably averaged one or two formal spankings a month. At age 11, my parents became more demanding and the spanking frequency rose. From age 12 to 14, the combination of stricter rules and my desire for more freedom resulted in an increase of spankings for both responsibility and behavior. I doubt that a week would go by without Momma or Daddy finding reason to administer a spanking. Twice a week wasn’t so unusual either. At age 15 and 16 I was spanked much less and at age 17, without any announcement, it stopped.

I did not enjoy getting spanked in the least but as an adult I find it fascinates me. I get my fulfillment through reading literature, viewing drawings and corresponding. What I seek is realistic scenarios that delve into emotions as well as graphic descriptions. In correspondence I want someone who is of course, interested in this subject, articulate and reasonably committed. There are several levels that I can connect on, whether it be exchanging experiences, discussing stories, expounding on aspects of spanking, etc.

The enjoyment or pleasure that a parent feels from administering or observing a spanking can be for multiple reasons. On the more noble side are those who feel that they have delivered an effective lesson that will make their daughter a better girl. On the less noble side are those who are bullies and who get their kicks seeing someone crawl. In the world of fantasy, I can find either one a turn on and would be interested in discussing either. Though most of my writing is fiction many did cross over in some way into real life.

Ironically, bonding can occur with either type of parent, depending how they present themselves to the child and the nature of the girl. I prefer stories of girls who have been raised very strictly all their lives and are cooperative and submissive. I also like parents with super strict rules about not only behavior but doing chores, school grades and responsibility. A particular theme of interest is the spanking of older sisters for the misdeeds of their younger siblings while under their supervision.

Would love to hear from you if the above strikes a deep, responsive chord.

Comments: People who criticize spanking children should be gunned down in the streets without pity. Free speech has its limits, and saying "don't hit your kid" crosses that line! The antispanker problem requires a Second Amendment solution!

Fortunately, one young mother took action in Philadelphia last month.

Penny Chapman spanked her little boy on the bus. And another passenger did the inexcusable: he criticized her for that. So quick-thinking Mom phoned for reinforcements. Her little boy's uncle and a couple of his associates showed up minutes later with an assault rifle and a handgun and then sprayed the interior of the bus with bullets while passengers dove for cover. Unfortunately, the antispanker escaped unharmed... this time. You can bet he'll think twice about criticizing spanking in the future though!

Some mincing, effeminate, bleeding-heart multicultural metrosexual liberals will surely whine about how this woman's posse placed an entire busload of innocent people in peril. But that is downright unAmerican of them. The American way is to kill every high value target and not let concern about "collateral damage" deter you! So if you have to blast every random bystander within range in order to terminate just one mealy-mouthed antispanker, then so be it!!!

Comments:Six of the best reasons to love the artwork of the Great Khan:

Ethnic mix & girls in specs—people you otherwise rarely see in spanking art.

Knickers—yes, I know, but the variety adds to my pleasure. Every new girl, a fresh patterned pair of panties.

Background detail—family photos on the wall, fundamentalist Christian crosses, and e.g. Gallery 109/4 children’s classics and a trophy giving a clue to the girl’s age.

Excellent composition—e.g. Gallery 96/14. The eye is initially drawn to the very light colour in in the top left which becomes increasingly darker as you move down diagonally right, through the mother’s top half and the sofa, to the hiding child where the pink of her face, arms and legs and the flash of colour of her panties (again!) catch attention, then you naturally move horizontally to lower left where the girl’s art adorns the wall. The whole story is revealed – brilliant!

Plots, real and surreal—the old standby of the bad report is there, but a skateboard through a car windscreen – wow!

Humour—the pictures really are very funny.

Maybe six of the best reasons make one good reason to see some more drawings—please!

Comments:I really love Handprints, also BBB which is even better
my favourite overall are Rejuve Universe stories ie Melody stories, also a great fan of Synthia and the spankings she gets, though her little sister deserves a good hard spanking even more.
I am from NewZealand and we have passed so-called anti=spanking laws which does not do our kids any good at all.
Even though I am a spanko and love spanking art and stories I also believe in spanking real children.
No more said on that though, one thing that concerns me is, the viewing of spanking art and stories of minors looked on the same as spanking real children which is illegal in a lot of countries, how do the authorities in those countries look on people who enjoy art etc spanking of imaginary children.

Comments:Hello again Michael. I see we both hail from BBB. In answer to your concerns; my advice would be to consult your country's criminal law statutes and criminal codes to obtain a definition of the p0rn laws.

Having said that; there will legal people with differing interpretations of the same laws. There other considerations of a legal nature that are too complicated to discuss here but to err on the safe side - don't put yourself in a position where you would come under scrutiny. And one other thing Handprints doesn't condone any activity that relates to the spanking of real children. Not a critism but a word to the wise.

Comments:This site should be illegal! Swden is right for making even drawings of children being spanked illegal. alll hitting all CP of children or anyone no matter how major or minor is bad and wrong and evil and soooo are sites like this one.

[HandPrince replies: Are you any relation to the great Adah Maurer, the William Lloyd Garrison of the school c.p. abolitionist movement? Just wondering.

I'll make you a deal. If you can prove to me one case of a nonspanking parent changing their mind and taking up the practice of spanking due to viewing the artwork on this site, I will take the site down. Deal?

Until then, Handprints isn't going anywhere. No real-life children were spanked in the creation of the images or stories on this site. If you are a true antispanker like Adah Maurer, I urge you to focus your energies on stopping the spanking of real children rather than wasting your efforts preventing imaginary children from getting make-believe spankings, which is all that ever happens or ever will happen here on the Handprints site.]

Comments:In the 1960s the child psychologist couple, John and Elizabeth Newson, conducted a widespread social survey into contemporary child rearing.
The results regarding 4 & 7 year-olds were published in two volumes. Here are some statistics dealing with discipline.

Actual smacking [spanking] of 4-year-olds, both sexes:
Less than once per week = 22%
Between once per week and once per day = 68%
More than once per day or implement used = 7%

Actual spanking of 7-year-old girls:
Less than once per month = 38%
Between once per month and once per week = 29%
Between once per week and once per day = 25%
More than once per day = 6%

Actual use of an implement on 7-year-old girls = 18%
Threatened use of an implement on 7-year-old girls = 41%
The most used implements in descending order were:
Strap/belt, cane/stick, slipper, followed by miscellaneous implements such as yardstick, wooden spoon and dog’s lead. [I was surprised not to see hairbrush mentioned and in the USA paddle would no doubt take the lead]

The Newsons also divide the girls between those scoring High and Low for corporal based on frequency and likely use of implement: Low = 47%, High = 23%.

Corporal punishment was considerably higher for boys than girls, but girls were more likely to be spanked on their underwear or bare because of the ease of raising skirts than pulling down trousers.

Looking at these figures makes one remember how often children were spanked at that time. Smacking is all but illegal in England, and totally so in Scotland, and most of these punishments would put the parent in court or even prison.

The Newsons also wrote a book dealing with 11-year-olds, but sadly this was never published.

Comments:My mother once told me that my most-spanked age was four. I don't remember that far back. But in my own experience as a mother, and knowing other families with young children, I get the impression preschoolers get spanked the most.

I wanted to see if there were any surveys which looked at this, to see if my impressions matched, and I found several papers on a university web site.

According to one study, which interviewed a representative sample of 991 American parents, four and five year old children are the most likely ages to be receive corporal punishment in the home (94%).

A majority of parents of 2-12 year olds reported using the threat of a spanking to make their children behave, with parents of 5-8 year olds most likely to do so (71%).

The most popular form of corporal punishment was giving your child a bottom spanking with your open hand, with 72% of parents of 2-8 year olds and 43% of parents of 9-12 year olds saying they did this. (I was surprised to see that 14% of parents of teenagers still give their children hand spankings, just slightly less than the percentage who use implements. 39% of parents of teenagers threaten their teenagers with spankings, though, which means some of these parents are all talk and no spank).

The authors write, "Although most CP is in the form of slapping hands or buttocks, use of traditionally approved implements such as a hairbrush, paddle, stick, or belt has by no means died out. Use of such implements is still legal in every state, provided there is no injury, or in some states no mark that lasts more than about a day." Over 28% of parents of 5-12 year olds said they spanked their children's buttocks with an implement, "such as a belt, hairbrush, or stick." And 18% of parents of 2-4 year olds spank with such an implement.
http://pubpages.unh.edu/~mas2/CP36.pdf (my source for all of the above)

Another study had some information about families which still use corporal punishment on their teenagers.
"Among parents who continue CP into the teen age years, it is not a rare outburst. Within the sub-group of parents who use CP with teen age children, it occurs an average of four to five times a year." 40% of parents of 13 year olds spank them, along with 13% of parents of 17 year olds.

But 3 to 5 year olds remain not only the ages at which children are most likely to be spanked by their parents, children this age also receive the most frequent spankings.
"Among the 3 to 5 year old children... 61% were spanked in the week preceding the interview. The frequency of spanking that week ranged from 33% who were spanked once that week to 11% who were spanked six or more times that week. The mean was 3.1 times." (My mother said she spanked me about twice a week on average when I was a little girl this age, which would mean I was below average, which I never would have imagined!)

Comments:In 2005, the noted journalist and writer Rosemary Righter wrote an autobiographical article in THE TIMES (London). It began:

“I didn’t go to school until I was 9 and when I finally went to the stern little school for ploughmen’s children in the Cumbrian highlands, I was caned on each of the first three days. First for not knowing any of the Ten Commandments, next for never having heard of the Lord's Prayer, and finally for declaring that science had shown the Creation to be a myth.”

This demonstrates the arbitrary way in which beatings were administered by some all-powerful and prejudiced teachers in the UK of the 1950s.

Comments:Morris, yer they were quite stern in those days, thouigh Children new their place!!
Nowdays at School anything goes.
My Country banned the use of Corporal Punishment in Schools years ago, and the effects of that decision is felt daily.
I had an experience a few years ago, that happened with me when I was doing some Voluuntary work at my Childrens School, a lot of the kids new me through my kids and called me effectionally Uncle Mike, anyway this little 8 year old came running up to really excited, informed me I made Miss cry! I asked why he did that, he told me rather proudly!, I punched her in the face.
My reaction was, I nelt down and informed him that if he was my Son, he would find himself, pants down, over my lap, getting his bare bottom spanked, he did'nt feel like telling me more, fair enough.
I had a talk with the Headmaster about this inciden and what I had told this lad, his reaction was, he would have no problem in disciplining this boy, but it was illegal, so he could'nt do it.
In closing the problem lays with lawmakers who pass laws without any thought to the consenquenses, and liberal Parents, there are other issues that come into play , and I realise things are not always that simplistis.

Comments: Judge William Adams and his wife take belts to their then-16-y.o. daughter, Hillary, for downloading music and games on the internet. She knew she was going to be spanked so she set up the video camera without her parents' knowledge. Now she has posted her video on Youtube.

She is 23 now and hates her father's guts. She urges everyone in her area to vote against him when he comes up for re-election as a judge.

How disrespectful of her. If only she'd had a few good HARD spankings when she was growing up, surely she'd be different! He should have pulled down her pajama pants first, then she would love him now.

Yes, severely beating kids is always the answer every time. Don't believe those faggot liberals with their "studies" showing that hitting kids makes them grow up to be more violent, aggressive, and sociopathic, either. I was spanked and I turned out great! And if you disagree with me, I will kick your punk sorry little ass you antispanker cocksucker motherfucker!!!!! And as for sociopathic, that's a total crock of shit! Take me for instance... I have the most highly-developed moral conscience of any inmate on my entire cellblock! So FUCK YOU!

Comments:Cold Stone, you are over the top, how can you talk about respect with your foul mouth.
I would not look on you as an example to any Child or Teenager for that matter, also spanking of children is diffirent than beatings, the latter is child abuse.

Comments:Once when I was little my mother told me with a severe tone of voice to come with her, and she marched me up to my parent's bedroom. I had a distinct feeling I was in trouble but I couldn't imagine why. My mother sat down on their bed, stood me in front of her and asked me if I had anything to tell her. I shook my head 'no,' my anxiety mounting. She asked again, with her face growing sterner, and I told her I didn't understand what she wanted me to say.

She led me over to her dresser and pointed to where her hairbrush normally sat - the one she used both for brushing her hair and for spanking my behind. She said she had set it there last, and Daddy hadn't taken it, so I must have taken it. I was horrified by this, because I truly hadn't touched Mommy's hairbrush, much less hidden it. I wouldn't have dared do something so wickedly naughty. But when I told her I hadn't taken it she said I was fibbing and she promised me a good hard spanking for that. And without another word she put me over her knee, bared my bottom and kept her promise.

When I had mostly finished crying and she was holding me on her lap, she asked me if I had learned my lesson and was I ready to tell her where I had hidden her hairbrush now. I burst into tears, buried my face in her bosom and begged her to believe me, that I really really honestly didn't know where it was.

Like a whirlwind, she whisked me into my bedroom, re-bared my bottom, and gave me another spanking, this time with my own hairbrush, and harder than before. I cried a long time after she finished. At first I cried long because it had been a particularly sound spanking, even by my mother's standards. But I kept crying even longer still because I feared she would ask me about her missing hairbrush once I'd stopped crying, and I had no idea how I could respond to her when she did. Eventually she ordered me to hush and then asked me the question I dreaded. And in a stammering whisper I answered her the only way I could - honestly - full of icy fear of how she would react to that.

Instead of another spanking, though, she told me to wash up and change into my nightie, although my bedtime was hours away. I was to be confined to my bed without supper until I decided to confess my sins and tell her where I had hidden her hairbrush. If I hadn't confessed by my regular bedtime, she promised to cut a switch from our garden and give me a whipping before she tucked me in. Then she left my room.

My mother's switchings, like her spankings, were given on my bare skin. But unlike her spankings, they raised welts and they hurt worse than anything else I had experienced or would experience for a long time. (Until I gave birth, actually).

With fear clutching my heart I did as she had told me to, and then lay in bed praying and praying for God to rescue me from my predicament. He was my only hope.

And then, miracle of miracles, God came through for me. Mommy came up to my room an hour or so later and told me she had been mistaken, and it had been her who had mislaid her brush. She said she was sorry she had wrongly accused me of taking it, but that I should consider those two spankings she'd given me earlier as punishments for any times when I had misbehaved in the past and gotten away with it without her knowledge. I was so relieved and so grateful to God for making Mommy find her hairbrush and sparing me the anguish of a switching. But I still felt bad too, because my mother had spanked me twice, hard, for something I hadn't done - and she never even apologized to me for that.

Comments:My mom wasn’t much of a disciplinarian. The most we might get was a slap across the face for sassing off, but that was about it. But ever summer, my mom would ship us four girls off to granny’s house.

Granny, on the other hand, was quite the disciplinarian and she kept a special wooden spoon hanging from a hook in the kitchen just for disciplinary purposes. Through out the summer, I don’t think a week end by when one of us didn’t find ourselves over her lap with our shorts and panties around our ankles getting some heat applied to the seat.

The two younger girls would never get more than five firm swats, but my older sister and I would get at least ten, and often more. I truly believe my sister got some cathartic pleasure from being spanked because she seemed to go out of her way to piss granny off.

All spankings were given in the living room where any of us could watch. I especially liked watching my older sister get spanked because she would really put on a show.

One afternoon, after a particularly harsh spanking, I followed my sister out to the back porch where she had her hands covering her face and she seemed to be sobbing. I tried to comfort her and her sobs turned to laughter.

“Damn that old bitch really gave it to me good didn’t she?” she said. “Didn’t that hurt?” I asked? “Fuck YA,” she replied. “Sometimes I think you enjoy it,” I responded. And at some level, I think she did.

Just two days later, we got caught shop lifting some stupid little thing from a drug store. Actually, it was my sister’s idea. Wasn’t even something she wanted, but just wanted to see if we could get away with it. I we didn’t.

The town sheriff brought us back to the house where granny was waiting on the front porch tapping that spoon in her hand. We knew we were in for it.

It was a small town and the sheriff said the owner wouldn’t press charges if granny “took care of it.” We all knew what take “care of it” meant.

She marched us into the living room, pulled my sister over her lap, yanked down her shorts and panties and began. My sister was at first quite defiant, but after a while, the yelps turned into crying and then into screaming. I lost count of how many swats she gave her, but I know it was north of twenty five.

When she was done, my sister slid to the floor and I could tell this time she wasn’t laughing under her breath. Now it was my turn.

Granny said, “I know your sister put you up to this, but this will remind you about what is right and wrong.” And with that, it began.

I have no idea how many swats I got that afternoon, but I do remember that both our butts were deep red afterwards and a bit black and blue the next day.

That was the last summer we spent with granny. By the next year my sister was 14 and I was 13 and we both absolutely refused to go that year.

I never thought about that afternoon again until I got into college. One night, a bunch of us girls got together to just hang out and drink and get high, and somehow the topic of childhood spankings came up and it was amazing how almost all of us had some story to tell. There was one girls who I guess was overly harshly punished, but for the rest of us, the stories took on a sexual nature and we looked back on it with a certain amount of fond memories.

Comments:I was looking for a spanking story about a little girl who kept getting spanked for not having pants on in public places after she fell in the mud. First the park, on a bus in a store and her Aunts house. All because she got her pants dirty after fighting with her sister and falling in mud at a park. The mother kept blaming her sister for getting the little one spanked. Can you let me know the website it is on or a link. It is a really good story.

Comments:"The Complete Book of Combat With Mum contains 20 strategies to deflect a scolding from your mother — and was written by two Beijing 10-year olds.

"'Move No. 4 is useful. You run to Mom and throw yourself on her,' says Chen Leshui, who wrote the book. 'Lots of kids say they use this because it makes Mom's heart go soft, and it makes her cry.'

"Leshui says she wrote the book with her friend Deng Xinyi after a particularly humiliating incident.

"'Once, when I didn't do so well in an exam, a friend came over to play, and my mom picked up my exam paper and said, 'Your friends will all laugh at you,' ' Leshui says. 'My friend and I went to hide in my room and drew these pictures on pieces of paper.'

"The moves are divided into hard and soft tactics, though Leshui warns that hard tactics should be used sparingly, or you might get a beating. Her mother, who gives her name as Mrs. Li, says Leshui has tried literally every trick in the book.

"'There was one move she used to make when she was young: She'd pull down her pants, then present me with her naked butt and say, 'Spank me, mom!' ' Li says. 'Later, if I scolded her, she'd hug my legs and not let go. And when she got even older, she'd lock herself into her room and write notes to me on slips of paper.'"

Comments:To Hell with spanking. It isn't harsh enough. Those yellow-bellied liberals who advocate "the rod" need wise up, get real, and cut out the permissive BS!

The way to REALLY make children behave themselves is to zap them with a 250,000 volt taser, after you've finished drenching them with police-grade pepper spray (see link above).

That will teach them not to violate the school dress code!!!!!!!!!!!

Comments:Michael The picture you are looking for is on Gallery 87, 15th drawing (variouss0035).

It is, I agree, an excellent illustration in typically 1950s style, the adult cooly calm and the child in a rather extravagant dress.

Would any artist like to show what happens next?

I don't think this lion wants to eat her. I think he wants to spank her for being so cheeky. Direct staring is how cats signal dominance. How dare this uppity little human act all dominant towards him! He wants to teach her a lesson.

Comments:Moral dilemma from The Times (London):

“My teenage daughter forgot to pack a hairbrush on holiday. She proudly showed me a brush she’d obtained by switching its price with that of a cheaper version. Horrified, we drove on. Was my action reasonable?”

A reader’s reply:

“Until recently it would have been clear what a father should do. Apply the hairbrush percussively to the daughter’s posterior until she saw the error of her ways.”

Comments:One of your correspondents recently described a childhood experience when she had been spanked unjustly over a missing hairbrush. I felt moved to write some verse!

The Missing Hairbrush

I had not been naughty so I didn’t understand
Why mummy looked so angry and grabbed me by the hand
She hauled me to her bedroom and sat upon her bed
Looked me firmly in the eye and this is what she said.
“I think that there is something you may like to confess”
As I had done nothing wrong, I couldn’t answer yes.
She took me to her dresser where her hairbrush always sat
And said “My brush is missing what do you say to that?
I spanked you with it yesterday upon your little rear.
Did you think it clever to make it disappear?”
I said I hadn’t touched it, for indeed I wouldn’t dare,
Even though Mum uses it to spank my derriere.
“Well Daddy hasn’t moved it so I know it must be you
And for this piece of fibbing you know what I will do!
I’m going to spank your bottom and make it really sore
Perhaps that will dissuade you from lying any more”.
I had no time to protest as I went across her knee
With knickers round my ankles she started spanking me.
I was quickly crying as my bottom throbbed and burned
Till my mum decided that my lesson might be learned.
I was really sobbing from every stinging smack
She let me cry across her knee then put my knickers back.
She sat me on her lap and said that now I ought to tell
Where her brush was hidden and then all would be well!
I hugged her tight and told her that I really didn’t know
And that I wasn’t lying, and I had told her so.
With that I then was hoisted underneath her arm
And as we headed for my room, was filled with great alarm!
I cried and I protested that I’d told her all I knew.
She said that I’d be sorry by the time that she was through
“It seems that a hand spanking has not achieved it’s task
So if I use your hairbrush you might do what I ask”.
She lifted up my hairbrush and laid me on her lap
Then bared my aching bum again so I’d feel every slap.
The brush was raised and landed hard, enough to make me yell
And I kicked and squirmed and bucked as every hard smack fell
It seemed to last forever and my bottom was on fire
Though I was now exhausted, Mum didn’t seem to tire
It was the hardest spanking that I have ever had
And when my Mum had finished I was feeling bad
I cried and cried for ages and not just from the pain
For when I finished crying Mum would ask me once again!
I hadn’t seen her hairbrush so what more could I say?
But if I told the truth again I’d still be made to pay!
I’d now had two hard spankings and as far as I could see
No matter what I tried to say I would get number three!
Mum said to stop my crying and when I had complied
She asked the dreaded question so once again I cried
And told her I had not told lies. I hadn’t touched her brush!
She said she could wait for the truth, she wasn’t in a rush.
I should get my nightie on and wait here in my room
And do without my supper as I waited for my doom!
At my normal bedtime she would switch my bum, unless
I should come and tell her that I wanted to confess!
I lay upon my bed and cried and prayed that she would find
That horrid wooden hairbrush or else she’d change her mind!
I’ve had a bottom switching on a bare and tender bum
It’s worse than any spanking delivered by my Mum.
She would find a switch for me and cut it down to size
Then give me such a whipping on my little bum and thighs.
My bottom would be throbbing with welts that last for weeks
And I would not like sitting on my tortured bottom cheeks
I cried and prayed and prayed and cried till I was quite distraught
And promised God that I would be everything I ought.
I heard Mum’s footstep on the stairs and almost moaned in fear
Did this mean my time was up and switching time was here?
Mum came up to my bedside and said to dry my eyes
And told me gently she now knew I’d not been telling lies.
She had found her hairbrush and she knew it wasn’t me
It was in her handbag all along as plain as plain could be!
She said that she was sorry that she did not trust my word
And promised that the next time my pleadings would be heard.
As for my two spankings she was sure there must have been
Other times I’d needed them when I had not been seen!
Of course I was delighted that Mum knew I hadn’t lied
But I’d had two major spankings and cried and cried and cried!
She had spanked me with no cause and surely she could see
That she should say she’s sorry and make it up to me?
Not say that these were spankings that really could have served
For times when I’d been bad and not received what I deserved!!!
Why is it that Mummies can’t admit when they are wrong
If it had been her bottom she would sing a different song!
Ok there was no switching and I was quite relieved
But is it any wonder that I still felt quite aggrieved!

I've started a blog because I want to write about true experiences of spanking, stressing the emotional and loving side of it. I've written my 1st story it's there:

If you are interested, make a newbie happy and tell me whether you found it "stirring stuff". (Oh, I'm a newbie with blogs, not with spanking...)

Comments: Girls Spanked, Suspended for Skimpy Prom Dresses

"Be very, very careful about what you wear to the prom in Alabama. Over a dozen students at Oxford High School were disciplined for dress code violations this weekend and offered a choice: corporal punishment or a 3-day suspension. The dress code prohibits, among other things, transparent materials and revealing necklines. “Our community has certain expectations of what is appropriate,” the principal says.

"Reports differ on how many students were disciplined. The Anniston Star puts the number at 25, but CNN says 18—of whom all but one chose the paddling. “We’re too old to be paddled,” says the lone holdout. “This is not the 1940s.” Her mother is incensed: “They said her dress length was short,” she fumes. “But that’s the way they are making them now.”"

Comments:In 1952 on my eighth birthday I received as a present “Five on Treasure Island” by Enid Blyton. On page 16 I was excited to read: ‘“She needs a spanking,” said Uncle Quentin.’ (Changed in modern editions to, “She needs a talking to”.

This, believe it or not, was the first time I had realised that girls might be spanked.

I had seen - and felt! - quite a few spankings by this age, but I had no sisters and at my school only the boys were physically punished; the girls, who were better behaved, being made only to learn a poem etc.

This changed for one girl about a year later when a new teacher, Miss Crosby, came. Miss Crosby’s niece, Susan, already attended our class and it was soon plain that her aunt disliked her. This was strange because Susan was a quiet, inoffensive child of average academic ability, but I think it might have been because she was what we would then have called Anglo/Indian, a product of Imperial rule that had ended only five years before.

Susan was soon on the receiving end of slaps to hands and legs for nothing at all and before much longer was regularly going over her desk or her aunt’s knee for spankings. I viewed these with mixed feelings: I disliked Miss Crosby and felt sorry for Susan, but at the same time I looked forward to seeing the girl disciplined in this way – as did most of my classmates, girls as well as boys.

As the term went on Susan’s spankings became worse. Miss Crosby started to turn back her skirt and give more and harder smacks. Susan took all this without fuss and if she told her parents they never interfered.

The end of term came and when school resumed Miss Crosby was gone. The reason was never given and Susan went back to her almost anonymous position in the class. But I have an abiding memory of her bent over Miss Crosby’s knee as she spanked her on the seat of her bottle-green knickers.

Comments:"This hurts me more than it hurts you," my parents would say when they spanked me or whipped me with belts and switches as punishment when I was a child.

My strict upbringing shaped so much of my self-image and self-esteem. I know it will hurt my mother to read this. I know she believes she did the best job she could at raising me.

I've talked a lot about how I was taught to be a "good little girl."

I grew up in a small town in Georgia...The general attitude around child rearing was "spare the rod, spoil the child."

I felt I had to do everything they told me to do: I had to be the perfect, sweet, good little girl in order to stay out of trouble. Being bad meant I got the belt from my father or a good spanking from my mother.

When I did something like argue with my brother, my mother would say, "OK, that's enough! One!" She would begin to count the number of times I'd be spanked. Continued bad behavior increased the count.

I had to cut my own switches from the woods.

Somewhere along the line I devised a clever system to try to avoid my punishments. I would hide between the trees as long as I could, in hopes that they would forget about me. When they called out for me, I would pick up a big, fat tree limb and carry it back to the house. When I returned, they would say, "That's too big. Go get something smaller." I'd return to the forest and find a tiny little stick that was old and crumbling, thinking that it would break as they hit my bare buttocks with it.

"This is ridiculous," they would say. "Go cut me something from the tree -- and the wood better be green." Long, green switches bent well and stung when they hit you.

I remember the flush of humiliation I'd feel as I pulled my pants down and leaned over the kitchen counter. The seconds before the first hit were the scariest, because I didn't know how hard the pressure would be applied. I would squish my eyelids together and tense up, waiting for the end. Afterwards, they'd send me to my room to "think about what I did." I would cry hard, thinking about what a stupid girl I was, and plan how I could be better so that I wouldn't disappoint my parents so much next time. At times I was inconsolable, curling up on my bed alone, sobbing into the pillow.

Comments: Beginning at 2:17, gorgeous exercise instructor Cynthia Kereluk shares with her viewers how her mother "broke a lot of wooden spoons" on her bottom when she was a little girl.

Little Cynthia had to do the dishes for her large family, and this required three sink loads of dishes each evening. Clever Cynthia deliberately let the wooden spoon sit in the water through all three loads, washing it last. Evening after evening this gradually softened and weakened the wood. Then when her mother spanked her, she would clench her buttocks and the impact would occasionally break the spoon, bringing Cynthia's spanking to a premature conclusion.

Kids, are you listening??


In this one, Fiona Phillips recounts how when she was 10 a perv teacher used to bend her over his desk, lift the skirt of her school uniform, and spank her with a slipper he kept in a drawer. She said he had a gleam in his eye, and would spank her for no particular reason. This happened so often she always made sure she wore clean underwear to school because it was so often seen.

This may have gratified her teacher's desires, but as discipline it backfired. Fiona says her self esteem suffered and she became more disruptive in class as a result.

Comments:Before I ever started the Handprints site, I went to New York City for a personal consultation with a first amendment lawyer who specialized in defending people accused of violating the child pornography statutes. I wanted to make sure the website I envisioned would be entirely within the law. What he told me was "child pornography is any photographic material which a prosecutor can successfully convince a jury is child pornography." Paintings and drawings, on the other hand, are legal unless a prosecutor can prove they are "obscene," which is far more difficult and is impossible in cases where the image has redeeming artistic value of any sort.

Photos of children in bathing suits playing on the beach DO qualify as child porn if the prosecutor can convince a jury that you find them erotic, especially if the images focus on the children's clothed bottoms or pubic area. That means that if you download a family photo of a child in a bathing suit jumping over a wave at the beach, and then crop it so that her buttocks outlined under her bathing suit fill the picture, that makes it potentially prosecutable as child porn. In the United States versus Knox (1994) the US Supreme Court upheld a standard of "child pornography" which includes images in which minors not only are not engaged in sexually explicit activity, but aren't even nude. Mr. Knox ordered a video through the mail featuring 10-17 year old girls in underwear, bathing suits and leotards dancing, with the camera zooming in on the area of their clothing which covered their genital areas. Knox got several years in prison for this non-nude, non-sexual video. He thought the video was legal. A prosecutor convinced a jury otherwise and Knox went to prison as a result.

"Child Pornography," under US law, means "photographic depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct." Title 18 U.S.C. § 2256 defines "minor" as anyone under 18 years of age, and defines "sexually explicit conduct" to include, "actual OR SIMULATED... sadistic or masochistic abuse." So a posed photo of an adult with a bare bottomed minor across their lap with their hand in the air as if preparing to administer the first spank WOULD qualify as child porn if the prosecutor can convince a jury that you find fantasies involving spanked minors erotic. Having a hard drive full of legal Handprints type drawings will be more than sufficient for a prosecutor establish that kind of interest on your part, even though the Handprints images themselves are completely legal.

Home movies of actual spankings of nonconsenting children totally qualify as child porn if you possess them and if you can be shown to have a fetish for that sort of thing. And "possession" can mean simply having a recoverable version of the picture or video in your browser's cache or temp folder even if you never actually took the step of saving a copy. Deleting such a file after you save it still leaves a copy on your computer for which you may potentially be prosecuted. Even if you overwrite the file with other data, forensic data recovery specialists can use statistical methods to go through your hard drive bit domain by bit domain and reconstruct the file and thus prove you once possessed it unless you overwrite it multiple times with random data using a file shredding program. (See
http://www.jetico.com/index.htm#/bcwipe.htm )

Back in the 70's there was a digest sized magazine which had only one issue that I know of. It was called "Child Discipline" and included stories, some 19th and 20th century juvenile spanking art, and a couple of photos of adults and children posing with the child over the adult's knee bottom bared as if for a spanking. Finding this was a revelation for me because it was the first proof I had that I wasn't the only person in the world who was "this way." But I threw away my copy many years ago to comply with a new possession law at my State level. Anyone who frequents the Handprints site who possesses material like that, either in hard copy form or on your hard drive is strongly advised to do likewise. Keep in mind that if you live in the USA, your State also has its own child porn statutes and in some cases they are even stricter than the Federal statutes.

If you have a spanking fetish and you so much as look at an online photo or video of even a posed pretend spanking of a real minor or even of someone who appears to be a real minor, you are putting yourself at risk not merely of imprisonment, but of imprisonment as a sadistic kiddie beating pervert whom the other prison inmates will want to jump in the shower and ram a shiv between your ribs the first chance they get. To survive your years behind bars, you may need to be in protective custody, which means "the hole," a prison within a prison, in which you can expect your food to be urinated in and laced with broken glass daily because everyone on staff will know which tray of food is going to that scumsucking dirtbag sadistic child porn lover in isolation cell #2. Do you think you could handle that for 5-10 years straight?

Anyone who tells you that a photo or video of a real or simulated spanking of a real minor is legal for fetishists to collect in the USA is either ignorant or lying and possibly a cop hoping to entrap you. If you value your freedom, stay way from such stuff. And if anyone contacts you to offer or ask about such material, assume them to be a cop and shun them. If you get anything like this in the mail, immediately hand it in to your local post office and fill out their form asking not to be sent such material in the future; it was almost certainly agents from the Postal Inspection Service who mailed it to you in the first place, not your fellow spankos, and if you hand it in and fill out the complaint form the Inspectors will cross you off their list and focus on entrapping some other poor sucker rather than you. Stick to drawings and cartoons and fiction. Your fetish isn't worth dying in prison for.

And I would appreciate it if everyone would please not post links in the Handprints Guestbook leading to sites with home movies or homemade photos of child spankings. Aside from the legal jeopardy of viewing such material, there is also the moral and ethical issue of supporting the exploitation of a child for the delectation of adult fetishists on the internet. Drawings, cartoons and fiction are free of this problem as well.

When I was a child, I felt awful when I knew my cute little sister was about to get a spanking. I wished it wasn't going to happen to her. But at the same time, I always felt an overwhelming driven urgent need to watch, or at least, to overhear. Afterwards, I felt like dirt. When I see links to sites with videos or photos of actual child spankings, I feel a twinge of that same urge today. But there is no way I am going to jail for this fetish of mine. And besides, I know that if I did succumb to temptation out of weakness and did view such a site, I would once again feel like dirt afterwards, at least if the photographic material was of real spankings. And even faked child spanking photos like the ones in "Child Discipline" leave a bad taste in my mouth aside from their illegality; I worry about the child, if she was forced into the photo session, if she will be telling therapists about it in 20 years, etc. Who needs that on your conscience?

Comments:Ben Doverknee,

I would like your explanation of how web 1.0, with significantly less content and all presumably hand coded, is more secure than the use of third-party CMSs that include scripting and possibly executable code?

Or are you simply saying that an @wordpress.com site is done by a site you trust, whereas you don't know what the codebase of handprince is so you don't trust it, in spite of the fact it has been up years (longer than wordpress if I am not grossly mistaken) and has had no reported issues.

Because the only educated explanation I can see is that you are saying you don't trust Handprince not to put viruses into his code, and would rather everything be managed by wordpress.

Comments:The Science on spanking

You often read “results” of science in journals, but rarely about the many contradictions that make these results questionable. Actually, there are many opinion papers but little evidence, as the arrows of causation are difficult to distinct in observational studies. Bad parents spank often, bad children are spanked more and bad children often turn into bad parents: the arrow of causation is likely the opposite (spanking is a consequence, not a cause).

At least in Europe, there is a contradiction between questionnaires and ideology. Consistently, more than two thirds of parents admit smacking young children, and half admit spanking children at primary school age. Sweden may be the big exception, but I would not touch their results, even with a very long pole: political correctness is the ruling religion with hypocrisy as main virtue.

To make more reliable comparisons, you need to seek experimental or pseudo-experimental situations. If you make historical comparisons between entire child populations, between the 1950s and 1960s and the 1990s and 2000s, there is little evidence that these older child populations were worse off than the modern populations. At the contrary. The older populations score higher on happiness (not very reliable), lower on depression and suicide (the hardest endpoint and reliable).

At least in continental Europe, the differences in parenting between these periods are quite small. There was consensus that frequent and/or harsh spanking was bad parenting. We frowned upon the practices in English boarding schools, or on parents using whips or heavy belts. Only a small fraction of parents (less than 2%) did that – and do that. That did not change, regardless of laws. Spanking was used as mild spanking for the under five (a smack or at most a few swats, firm but not hard) and an occasional (rare) spanking for children at primary school age or young teenagers, for behavior that was considered a lot worse than unacceptable. Few children committed the same offence again, after such a spanking.

To summarize:
There is consensus that frequent and/or harsh spankings are bad parenting (which indeed applies to many imaginary victims on this website…). There is also consensus that no or weak punishment, when deserved, is bad parenting.

Belittling is likely even worse. Many adults forgot the physical pain of a spanking but remember the psychological pain of being called a no-good by their parents.

There is no evidence that mild spanking at young age or an occasional, rare spanking for very bad behavior of older children is bad parenting.

Alternative punishments than spanking are available, but there is no evidence that they are better (particularly at younger ages).

The advantages of spanking is that it is easily applicable and short, which makes that it can be applied consistently (particularly mild spanking of younger children).

[HandPrince replies: This Guestbook is intended for comments relating to the Handprints website. Nevertheless, after some reflection, I've decided to let the above message stand, even though it is nothing but an argument in favor of spanking real-life children and has nothing to say about the Handprints site, its contents or its contributors. I don't want to appear to be censoring views with which I disagree. That being said, there are numerous rebuttals which can and have been used in response to all the standard arguments above. I won't list any of them, although I'm tempted, because I don't want this Guestbook to degenerate into a pro/con spanking debate.

Speaking strictly for myself, childhood spankings have had a lifelong unanticipated effect. Anyone even casually glancing at the Handprints site knows what I'm talking about. I am obsessed with the subject - have been since I was a preschooler. That is why this website exists. I think anyone who wishes to post on a fetish site about how harmless and beneficial spankings are to real life unconsenting children (including themselves) should also state why they think they feel so drawn to view a site like this one in the first place.]

Comments:There are a couple drawings I was trying to find again after not being here for a while and they are not showing up. They are two drawings by Ralph F, various drawings numbered 498 and 500. There are links to them on the Whats New page but clicking on them results in an error. Was this omission intentional? If so, why? If not, is there a way it can be fixed? Those were among my favorite drawings on this site and I would enjoy seeing them again.

[HandPrince replies: Although Ralph F assured me that those images were not digitally altered photos, I decided after some reflection, that it would be safer not to have them on HP. I don't want to be in the position of having to prove in a court of law that an image sent to me by a total stranger wasn't a digitally altered photo depicting abuse of a minor. In mid-2008 I explained my concerns to Ralph F and he agreed to use a more cartoon-y less realistic style in his future submissions. But after that, I didn't hear from him again.]

Comments:This is in response to Handprints' comment on June 3 to the pro-real life spanking post. I completely agree that the fact that I was spanked as a child is the root reason why I enjoy spanking art and am drawn to this site. Fortunately I was punished only occasionally, for serious offenses and with only the bare hand, as the post recommends. But that said, so what? I am not embarrassed nor ashamed that I enjoy this site and I am surprised to see that the site's founder and manager apparently is.

Comments:I have no idea whether our fascination (obsession?) with childhood spanking come from having experienced it. For myself, I had this passion from earliest memory and believe it is as much an essential part of me as the colour of my eyes.
However, generations of children are now growing up who have never experienced so much as a tap. Are there those among them who will come to seek out sites such as our beloved Handprince? Or will this compulsion be recorded only in learned studies of psychological oddities and curious cultural customs?

I can't speak for other countries, but where I am from spanking is quite actively used by most parents, whether just a quick swat or an old fashioned otk bare bottom spanking. I also know that it is common in several other countries, such as China and India.

I wrestled with all of these questions long ago. If you read up a bit, you will find that EVERYONE has screwy fantasies. As fantasies, they're harmless. What we like in fantasy, and what we like in reality, are two different things. So speak for yourself.

Please consider that walking into a community and declaring the people there to be "fucked up," even if you include yourself, is no way to make friends.

Most of us have already worked our way through these issues. As long fantasies remain fantasies and don't get acted out in real life, they are not harmful.

Comments: Looks like the *'s in the */f images on this site aren't Presbyterians... at least... not "good" Presbyterians:

"The national governing body of the Presbyterian Church (USA) today in Pittsburgh recommended that corporal punishment -- including mild spanking -- not be practiced in homes, schools or institutions. Some commissioners said the church was overreaching by implying that those who spank their children are bad Presbyterians. Advocates for the winning side said that children are the only people in the United States against whom violence is acceptable. The anti-corporal punishment recommendation passed 334-306."

Comments: I recently came across a copy of "Seven Years Old in the Home Environment" (John Wiley & Sons, NYC, 1976) by John and Elizabeth Newson of the University of Nottingham in England. They did a study involving interviews with 697 local mothers of 7 year old children. Among the 200+ items in the questionaire were questions relating to spanking (or as the Brits say, "smacking").

10% of the 327 girls in this sample got spanked as often by their father as by their mother, while 8% of them were spanked mostly or exclusively by their father. Only 14% of the mothers interviewed said they and their husbands disagreed on the subject of spanking discipline, but this was four times as likely when the husband was the major spanker as when the wife was. And for a whopping 82% of these girls, their mother was their major or exclusive spanking-giver.

Three years earlier, at age 4, 75% of the children in this sample got spankings at least once a week or more. At age 7, nearly a third (31%) still did, with a luckless 6% reported by their mothers as getting spanked an average of once a day or more. 29% of the girls got spanked once a month or more, but less than once a week; and 38% were spanked less often than once a month.

Although the interviewers had not yet mentioned spanking when they asked mothers how they would deal with their child if she didn't do as she was told, 56% of mothers volunteered that they would spank their child for that.

Another spankable offense in many of these homes was use of curse words. The mother of 7 year old Tess and her older sister Cheryl, said, "[Tess] got a real good hiding for that. I was fetching her from school and another kiddy came up to take something off her, and she said "You fuck off!" Well -- I know I say some words, but I don't say anything like that, I mean that really is the worst, isn't it? And there was a lady just passing and she looked at Cheryl and she looked at me, as if I'd taught it to her. Well, that stopped pretty quick; but lately [Cheryl]'s been saying [Tess]'s at it again, not out loud, just under her breath. And I caught her at it on Sunday. She was in the yard and falling out with another kid, and I saw her through the window, not saying it, just miming it with her mouth, "fu...". Anyhow, my husband whipped her in in a minute, and said "Well, we've caught you at last, have we?"

17% of the mothers said they pulled down pants or lifted skirts when spanking their 7 year olds, with a statistically significantly higher percentage spanking their daughters with their skirts lifted than their sons with their pants down. The authors write that this, "probably reflects only the fact that the mother can turn up a skirt herself, whereas taking down trousers needs some degree of co-operation." The authors continue, "Of course, the baring or partial baring of the child's buttocks is intended to make the punishment degrading as well as physically uncomfortable; and it may be that working-class parents in particular (whose sense of sexual modesty is more acute) may feel that this is going too far - they wish the child to be shamed, but not quite to that degree. Inhibitions of this kind do not apply to the use of implements as such, however."

18% of the girls were spanked with an implement, while a much larger 41% of girls had been threatened with an implement spanking but had not yet experienced one. One mother admonished her child, "You know, straps are sometimes used on girls, as well as boys!" to which her daughter replied, "I know, Mum, but you never do!" Other mothers did carry out threats to spank with an implement, though. "I use my hand; but if I have a stick I can wave it about and it has a great effect, but I don't like smacking with a stick," said one mother. But when asked if she had ever actually done so, she replied, "Yes, I have smacked them with it sometimes on the bottom."

The authors write, "Almost any mother may hit out in a fury when tried beyond her tolerance; differences here may be basically a matter of individual tolerance level. Slowing up the act of smacking, however, immediately invests it with purposiveness and underlines for the child [her mother's] disciplinary intent. In the pre-school years, to say 'Wait till I get you home!', and to smack the child once they got home, had a similar effect of formalisation; now [at age 7], to take down a boy's trousers or turn up a girl's skirt in preparation for smacking, to fetch an implement, or even to own an implement as such, all signify the mother's acceptance of smacking as punishment as opposed to her use of it as an expression of anger. To the extent that some mothers would never dream of formalising it in these ways, however hard pressed, this divergence represents a real difference in attitude rather than just degree - though, obviously, smacking is likely to hurt more on poorly protected skin or where an implement is employed."

A belt or strap was the most often-used spanking implement in the sample as a whole, especially in working class families. But more affluent families tended to prefer a switch or cane. The authors write, "Slippers and other more ad hoc implements such as yardsticks, wooden spoons and the dog's lead appear in too small numbers to analyse their social class distribution."

A distinctive difference between the real-life mothers and most fictional spanking mothers in F/* stories, was the large majority (73%) of the real-life mothers who reported feeling "guilty or upset" after spanking their child. One mother said that after she gives her daughter a spanking, "I'm the one that's upset. I feel awful afterwards. If she's gone off to bed looking sorrowful, I think to myself, Oh, you rotten devil! It makes me really tired - I can't do anything afterwards. But next day it all starts again. Because I mean you can't let it ride - she plays up to such a pitch. It wears you down, you know."

Tess and Cheryl's mother laments, "It would be nice not to [spank]! I think they do need it. And yet it doesn't seem to have any effect on them. They titter, they defy you. If you don't smack them, they just do whatever they like with you, but then if you are strict with them it seems to me they just get rebellious; and I think sometimes, when they defy me like that, that I just get myself worked up for nothing. I despair sometimes, I really do."

The Newsons also wrote a book called "Four Years Old In an Urban Environment that also included a chapter on physical punishment which I have in my possession- I can detail some of the statistics if you wish. They also did research for a book on 11-year-olds, but alas this was never published.

My favorite comics are the ones where little girls have their skirts flipped up and are being scolded and spanked on their panties or bare bottoms. These remind me of myself as a little girl, and how I still like to feel turned over someone's knee!

Comments:[HandPrince replies: Feel free to share that "incident" with us, if you wish! :-) ]

in reference to childhood incident that sparked beginning interest in subject. It was 5th grade elementary i attended public school in south. A girl in my class that I had a crush on was sent to principal and got paddling for being late. everyone in class knew about it and the thought of her being hurt outraged me, but strangely exited me. I began to think about doing same to her and wanted to ask her about getting sent to principal but i was too shy. throughout public school there was time to time story about a girl getting spanked with paddle in principals office. This re-inforced my interest as I knew some of these girls or could identify them. at time of peak curiousity about girls, my interest became tinged with the idea of them getting their behinds smacked hard. that is how it started

If I recall correctly, those were the artist sites which had Ron Wilson's artwork. He had asked to have his artwork removed several years back when this web site was experiencing some difficulties (since resolved)staying up and running. As far as I know, he has made no attempt to check out the site again as a possible outlet for his work. Handprince would most likely know more about the latter scenario.

Comments:[October 19, 2012] "In a press release issued this week, the Department of Justice announced that Christjan Bee, 36, of Monett, Missouri, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge James C. England to possessing obscenity for a collection of comics on his computer. Government prosecutors are recommending a prison sentence of three years without parole."

Click on the link above for the full article.

According to United States Code, Section 1466A, it is illegal for:

Any person who … knowingly produces, distributes, receives, or possesses with intent to distribute, a visual depiction of any kind, including a drawing, cartoon, sculpture, or painting, that -
(2)(A) depicts an image that is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in graphic... sadistic or masochistic abuse...

So, today people are getting arrested for comic books featuring make-believe pen-and-ink Japanese schoolgirls being raped in every orifice at once by multi-tentacled aliens. Tomorrow will they be going after people for possession of Droo's "Cynthia Visits The Spankers?"

The original justification for creating a special exception to the First Amendment allowing criminalization of images of sexual behavior, abuse, or arousal in minors was that the State had a compelling need to protect the real-life child in the photo or video. That justification has fallen by the wayside and police and court resources are now devoted to protecting imaginary child victims of fictional child abuse in comic books.

The scope of banned images and speech will continue to widen unless stopped. Write your newspaper or representative and express your outrage that people are going to prison in the Land Of The Free for possession of a comic book! Handprints viewers are also encouraged to join the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Comments: Help! "1970's Home discipline" I am trying to track down an old black and white Drawing depicting a 2 Middle aged ladies (Mother and Aunt?) about to Spank a young boy. It was titled as above.It has a most claustraphobic atmosphere with its cluttered 70's small living room complete with old Box type TV which the boy has undressed in front of. The Middle aged ladoes sit almost upon him, with "matter of fact" gazes of disapproval and no doubt anticipation. It simply astomishing the accuracy of detail and mood the drawing captures. Any ideas?

Comments:What an interesting site? I had recently uploaded a drawing of a young girl nude but with a red bottom. Because she looked under 16 or so someone was annoyed by it and after some discussion I removed it.

It got me thinking though that ones spanking fetish doesn't disappear below a legal age limit necessarily, if you know what I mean. I may become aroused at the drawing of a spanked young girl (or sometimes even a boy) but I'm not interested in sex with them. It is the association which does it.

Mother: Kaylee?!? If you don't get your bottom out of bed this instant, I'm coming up there with the hairbrush!

Kaylee: Awww, I'm coming... but I still hate school!

Mother: Why do you hate school so much, darling?

Kaylee: The work is too hard, the teachers all hate me and the kids make fun of me behind my back.

Mother: Well you'll just have to get beyond that and do your best.

Kaylee: Why should I?

Mother: First of all, I didn't raise you to be a quitter. Second, you're not too big to go over my knee. And third, You're the %##@^& principal!

Comments:How times have changed. "Correction That Corrects", a widely distributed book published in the 1920s had a drawing of the proper method of spanking a three year old boy. He was lying face down over a padded stool with the seat flap of his night suit lowered and his bare bottom exposed to the palm of a lovely matronly woman. Nothing was left to the imagination in terms of just what was going to happen to his bare buttocks. No one in those days gave it so much as a second thought as the practice was universally applauded.

Comments:Here are some cute little essays, done as an assignment in 2011, by schoolgirls in the Paris area:

My name is Chloe. I am 9 years old. I'm a girl. I am 1 meter 31. I weigh 27 kilos 4. I have blue eyes. I live in France in a building on the 3rd floor. I have light brown hair. I am of French origin. I have a little sister. I have a cat. I do gymnastics on Wednesday. I'm curious. With my sister Eden, we played "tag" and we dropped a chair. This chair toppled the small closet that collapsed on the floor and broke. The trophy of my mother was in there! My grandfather was furious and my father too. As for my mother, she was heartbroken. And then the spanking came. We earned a good spanking, of the kind: buttocks in fire! You may be sure: it hurt too badly! And we will never play ‘tag’ again in the room.

I'm Oxanne. I am 9 years old. I'm a girl. I 1 meter 38. I weigh 32 kilos. I have brown hair. I have brown eyes. My biggest mistake came in the following way: my brother and I we had: a beautiful, beautiful design ... on the wall. Of course my mother cried a lot and my dad gave us a spanking. And yet it was a beautiful drawing on the wall!

I am called Adelaide. I am 9 years old. I'm a girl. I am 1 meter 40. I weigh 34 kilos. I have brown hair. I have brown eyes. They are big. I live in a house. I am of French origin. I have four brothers. I have a cat. It is called "Fiji". On Wednesday, I play sports. The last spanking happened when I made fire with a lamp and a fan. My mother was furious. For my father-he was not too angry. But then my mother arrived, I dropped my panties and whack! whack!. Spanking hurts!

I'm Nadira Ola. I am 9 years old. I'm a girl. I am 1 meter 32. I weigh 29 kilos. I have light brown hair. I have brown and green eyes. I live in a building. I am originally from Algeria. I have a sister her name is Baya. My pet animal is a hamster, it's called "Honey." My father is Reida Hamed. My mother's name Ouardia. They are super nice. This happened during the "weekend." I had a bag of balloons with me. I began to fill them with water. I was with Laura and Oxanne. They came to my house to play. We played in the garden. We had a contest who would launch his balloon filled with water as high as possible. Of course, at some point, Laura has aimed badly and the ball landed on the balcony of the neighbors. They came. My parents told the two girls to leave, to go home. My mother was very angry. My father was not angry at all. My sister was not there. When the neighbors came ringing, we were hiding. It was I who took the spanking. It was not very hard, but it hurt and it was not I who had thrown the balloon..

My name is Laura. I am 8 years old. I'm a girl. I am 1 meter 20. I weigh 23 kilos 4. I live in a building. I have long blond hair and I have blue eyes. I have two sisters. My grandfather lives with us. I love my mother and my grandfather. I put a bucket of paint over a door and when my mother came, she took the bucket on the head. My mother wanted to spank me, but I ran and I told the story to my grandfather. He did not laugh and gave me the spanking. I was afraid of my grandfather. After the spanking I was angry at him, but I laughed at my stupidity because my mother had red hair.

I'm Jana. I was 8 and a half years. I'm a girl. I measure about 1 meter 38. I weigh 34 kilos. I have blond hair. I have blue eyes. They are of medium size. I live in a building in Treviso Plessis. I'm of Serbian origin. I have a little brother. I have no pets. I dance. I have a very nice family. That's my stupidity: One day I spilled chocolate ice cream on the floor. Then I broke eggs on top of it. My mother was very angry. My father was angrier than my mother. My grandmother found it funny and my grandfather was a little angry. My brother was laughing. And I got the spanking of my life. During the spanking, it hurt very much. And after that I calmed down. I will never do again such nonsense.

I'm Emanuela. I am 10 years old. I'm a girl. I am of average height. I have light brown hair. I have brown eyes and of medium size. I live in a house. I'm originally from Moldova. I have sisters. I have a fish. I bike and love rollerblading in the street. I have a mother who cares for me. My father works on a construction site. My cousins live with their mother and father. Their mother is the sister of my father. I like the pupils.
One day, with my sisters, we played tea. Then we pretended to drink water. Gabriela then took a cup and threw it at us. I took the garden hose and I made them wet too. Then we all three started a water fight. We were wet, soaked. My mom arrived, but we did not know, we did not see her. Then when I turned with the hose: she stood there! And I soaked her! I dropped the hose and I ran to save me. And my sisters ran with me. But it's always the adults who win. We took off our wet clothes and we got a spanking. I screamed like crazy and my sisters too. Consequences that we have learned all three: Now we play with water in secret and we take care our mom does not see us!

Nice to see yet another drawing originally from an actual sado-masochistic chi1d p0rn image. Maybe you and Lee Warner can share a cell?

HandPrince replies: I'll take your word for it, since you seem to have poured over actual chi1d p0rn spanking photos so extensively. (Otherwise, how would you know this was based on a photo, assuming it actually was?) I just posted this Alan Lawrence image a few hours ago and you have already viewed it and commented on it. Clearly you must check the Handprints site very very regularly.

Of course I'm sure this stuff doesn't turn you on in the slightest degree. Undoubtedly you have only the most morally lofty motives for devoting so much of your life to checking Handprints for updates and viewing actual spanking-realated chi1d p0rn photos. No, this stuff doesn't turn you on at all. Nope. Uh uh. No way. Only other people are that way, not you. I get it, I really do. Thank you for your comment.]

Comments:Great to see new artist Alan Lawrence's work. Wonderful drawings and I love the theme of each of them. My only wish is the girls should be spanked on the bare. Alan doesn't seem to object to this because in one drawing three girls are bare and the girl is bare in another drawing. Since he labels the drawings with a year denoting when these spankings occurred, perhaps he feels girls would not have been spanked on the bare in those days. The drawing with a bare boy and a panty-clad girl also suggest he believes girls weren't bared for punishment back then. I disagree. In fact, I suspect bare bottom spankings were more likely back then than today.

Comments:Advice From 1925 -- Proper spanking: the manner
(Mariam Fredrick, 1925; edited)

"The greatest care should be taken by the parent when spanking the child. She has her temper under control and is fully conscious of her duty. She should lead the child to the chair and calmly explain to him or her the cause and necessity of the spanking. She takes down the clothes, to expose entirely the bottom. She then turns the child across the lap. She raises her hand and then slaps it down with a swinging movement of the full arm, hitting one buttock at a time with measured force. The hand should be flexible and its full breadth applied to a single buttock. Before the child goes across the knee, she should determine the severity of the spanking and she should not allow squirming, crying or screaming to influence her towards leniency.

"What constitutes a good spanking? It stands to reason that the slaps should be not so hard and many in the case of a young preschool child as in that of a sturdy boy of school age. However, you have exposed the bottom and have turned the child across the knee to cause sufficient pain. Both physical and mental effects are important, but the best results of a proper spanking come when the child has been soundly spanked, his bottom “well reddened”: very red, warm cheeks in a most unpleasant burning sensation for a few moments. A well warmed little bottom means a very uncomfortable child feeling very sorry while lying across the lap. Spank hard till there is childish reformation. This is one of the great advantages spanking has over other forms of corporal punishment. Any woman can punish severely, and knows how severely she is punishing while not going overboard.

"There is a minimum of the number of slaps that at a real spanking should be given. I do not call it a spanking if there be given less than twenty sharp slaps on the bare bottom. In the case of a sturdy, very naughty boy of six, I have spanked for all of two minutes. This is why I get results most satisfactory after a few spankings, where other parents have failed after months, yes years, of ‘disciplining’.. The bottom is, indeed, very red and warm. But not the slightest injury has been done, and after a few such spankings, good behaviour will replace misbehaviour. I call this a correction that corrects.

"It is a crime to let children go on day after day a disgrace to their parents and a source of annoyance to all who come in contact with the children when correct punishment can and will make them lovable little creatures. Nearly every failure in systematic spanking is traceable to the fact that the spanking has not been sufficiently severe. I can not conceive of the normal child receiving proper spankings and not striving to mend his ways: to avoid such punishment. Make your spankings good, and the child will think twice before it disobeys.

"Spanking as a tried and true remedy has been thrown out, branded as worthless, because of the insufficient application. I feel sad when I think about all the good that proper spankings could do for millions of children, and no good is done because mothers ignore common sense advice and give full credence to sentimentalism. Any child can be given a sound spanking on its bare bottom, experiencing that annoying sting, but no harshness, no cruelty is there. The child knows when there is a real punishment available. In few spankings, you will have obedience. And although you spank soundly, your children will love you and want to be with you. Children are aware of their need for rules: living in a world without rules and guidance is scary.

"Why insist on the bottom being bare? For two reasons: mental and physical effect. The child will readily see the seriousness of the correction if the parent takes down his clothes. Then, for the physical. Regardless how thin the garments are, slaps will not have the same keen, stinging effect as they will if the skin be bare. I know prudes who object to such conduct, but these same prudes see nothing wrong in exposing the child’s body for bath, etc. If spankings are given only by loving parents, this argument cannot be upheld. Suppose a bare bottom spanking does cause some humiliation, such is needed at times. Just such punishment will take unjustified pride out of a child.

"Why continue to spank when a few slaps on the bare flesh have already caused no small amount of pain? A child, who has been soundly spanked will, when inclined to misbehave, recall the experience of increasing pain and therefore refrain from misconduct. I do not enjoy, any mother will not enjoy, spanking until there is pain and increased pain, but my experience is that the average child, be he little tot or sturdy boy, will, after a few real spankings, make every effort to avoid such punishment and therefore, behave. Why endure naughtiness? The child stays across the knee, and receives stinging slaps on its bare seat till good conduct in future is assured. It is painful, but not cruel. It will take months if not years before the child will need more than a simple warning that a proper spanking will come. Spanking the bare bottom, using your hand only, is not harsh. The spanking is executed by a mother or father, loving her children and loving her children as the men and women of tomorrow. The worst stinging will take at most minutes and, without doubt, the child corrected with systematic spanking will soon learn obedience and respect."

My biggest mistake came in the following way: my sister and I had made: a beautiful, beautiful ... drawing on the wall. Of course my mother cried a lot. She took down my panties and she put me over her knee and then slap! slap! slap! I screamed like crazy and my sister too. Spanking: it hurts a lot! And yet it was a beautiful drawing on the wall!

Sarah Forsyth from Edinburgh.

My father was quite a disciplinarian, and, as the head of the household, his word was law. Not that he ever hit us; one look was usually quite sufficient! He expected good behaviour at all times, table manners and politeness, no arguing or answering back.

The phrases "don't speak until you are spoken to", "waste not, want not", "no dumb insolence", "respect your elders and betters" were drummed into us, and I can't say that it did us much harm!

If we went out for a meal (a rare treat in those days), our behaviour had to be exemplary: the worst sin of all was to annoy other diners. Rather different to nowadays when kids seems to take over the whole dining-room!

One episode clearly sticks in my mind when I was 8 years old. I had gone into a neighbour's garden and pulled up some flowers, and she, quite rightly, dragged me home and complained to my father who happened to answer the door. I was summarily taken upstairs and my bare bottom thoroughly smacked by my mother, then I was put to bed in disgrace. Some time later, I had to get up and dressed, and my mother took me round to the neighbour so that I could explain why I had pulled up her flowers, and apologise. 40 years later, I can still recall the stinging of my mother's hand on my bottom, and the embarrassment I felt.

I wonder how parents today would deal with such an incident? At least my parents cared enough to show their displeasure at my behaviour, even if it seems somewhat heavy-handed looking back

Lorna Davidson from Inverness.

I was interested to read Sarah Forsyth's account of parental control in the 1950's.

I grew up a decade later in the 1960's but my experiences were similar.

I can remember two instances in particular.

My parents were decent people who believed in children being raised in the proper manner.

We were well loved and they gave us everything that they could afford, but at the same time they showed us who was in charge.

I vividly recall one instance when I was 10 years old. We lived close by a small stream and we kids had been forbidden to play near it for obvious safety reasons.

One day I persuaded my younger brother to explore with me and led him down towards the forbidden stream. In the course of our playing he slipped and fell into the water. Not too serious as only his legs went in but he ran home crying. My mother was furious with me for disobeying her orders and after drying off my little brother she took me across her knee and gave me a good hard smacking on my bare bottom.

I can still remember how much it hurt, not just my bottom, but my pride, as this was the one and only time that I ever had my pants taken down for a smacking.

The second incident occured about five years later when I was in third year at secondary school.

One day my friend and I decided that a trip to the local shops one afternoon would be more fun than attending school.

As luck would have it someone recognised us and contacted the school. In these days there was only one punishment for truancy and next morning we found ourselves in the headmaster's office.

The six strokes of the belt which me and my friend each received taught me a lesson I'll never forget.

I held no grudges against my mother or the headmaster as I deserved what I got and perhaps a little more discipline like that could help to solve some of the problems with kids nowadays.

Anna Rastrelli from Italy.

I’m Italian (please, forgive my English!), born in 1947, and reading your messages makes me think that my experience is not so different! Sarah Forsyth and Lorna Davidson's accounts are very interesting, as well as the school days recollections of many people here.

In our family discipline was mainly a mother thing. Our father worked long hours and when he came back home he expected to find waiting for him a smiling wife and two well-behaved daughters. This is just what he usually found, but to achieve these results mother had to work all day, as both I and my sister (two years younger) were very independent and she would say stubborn little girls! We, too, got our bare bottom smackings, and more than once in our life, I’m afraid! I‘m ready to admit that we both deserved it, at least most of the time. It is true what you both say, that we had the deep feeling that we were being CARED for by our parents, something that most of today’s children have every reason to doubt, given their parents unwillingness to play a parental role.

Certainly many of today’s pampered children would learn one thing or two if some time machine would bring them 50 years back.

But my childhood memories are not only centered around discipline in the family and at school, too: I also look back lovingly to the long hours we could freely play around unsupervised. I lived most of my childhood, from 5 to 12, in a sprawling neighbourhood, which urban development slowly sliced through beautiful and still unspoilt countryside. We did things that today would be considered too dangerous, such as playing in building sites, or bathing without adult supervision in a nearby creek, just staying out of reach for many long hours.

To sum it up: today’s children, both in Scotland and Italy – I presume, are treated with much more respect and consideration for their needs, some would say with too much attention being given to their whims and tantrums. A lot of children are being spoiled by their parents, and by powerless teachers. At the same time, they are completely deprived of the freedom to play out in the streets, or in the country, that we enjoyed in our 50’s childhood.

Who is the happier child? Who is the one that will grow up as a better adult ?

Heather from Leeds.

I was born in 1982 in England. My sister and I were regularly smacked on our bare bottoms, always with my mother's hand, either across her knee or face down on our beds. This was quite common at the time as I regularly saw friend's across their parents knees or heard their bottoms being smacked through walls or open windows.


I grew up in the 80's and discipline was very simple. If I misbehaved I would find myself across my mum's knee, my skirt up and my knickers down for a well smacked bottom. The most embarrassing incident happened at the school gates when I was 10 and my mum smacked my bare bottom for all my school friends', their parents and the teachers to see. I didn't feel the pain (and my mum smacked hard), I was just aware that everyone was watching my bare bottom in my mother's lap being covered with bright red handprints. When she'd smacked me about 15 times she told me "pull your knickers up." The whole place was silent everyone watching my face as red as my bottom as my mum stood me on my feet again.

Comments:"The Cowsills Spill the Beans About Each Other"

Teen Life Magazine May 1968

Bob tells about Susan:

"SUSAN is really cute, and she's going to be a good looking girl when she grows up. She's got a very catching laugh, but she's even funnier when she pretends to cry. You should see her trying to get out of a spanking from Dad when she's in trouble!"

Link to the magazine article:

HandPrince replies: Susan got more than just spankings from her Dad, poor kid. She left her parents' home in Rhode Island when she was 12 and went to live with her brother in California to escape from her father's incest. Waddy Wachtel, a guitarist who played with them in the sixties described Susan's old-fashioned-disciplining father as "a complete alcoholic monster."

Comments:Yes, Bud Cowsill was beneath contempt. He was abusive to the boys as well. Today Susan is doing OK. She still performs with her brothers on occasion, and she also has her own band, which you can see on YouTube.

Comments:Happy Birthday Minnie the Minx!

This cartoon character was first seen in the British comic THE BEANO on 19 December 1953. At first she was drawn in black and white, but later had flame red hair. Needless to say, she frequently went over dad's knee for a good dose of the slipper.

HandPrince replies: Like this, or this, or this??

Well hey... it's her birthday so she has to be spanked!!!

Comments:A true story from the early sixties (I can't draw). Sorry for the translated English, I did my best.

In the summer I usually stayed with Aunt Christine , which I called Mama Stine. She cared for six children, a medium-sized farm, a demented uncle and a retarded tramp who slept in the barn. A seventh child in the holiday was no problem. Lina, one of her daughters, was my favorite niece. She was only a few months younger than I. She was the sister I did not have at home ( where I had four older brothers).

Mama Stine gave me my first really bad bare buttocks spanking. Lina and I were playing tag in the house , which is not allowed . Mama Stine asked us to stop. After a while we forgot and we started again. Mama Stine warned us : I'm not going to ask it a third time. Then, it hurts the buttocks.

In the evening the children were literally hosed down in the courtyard, we dressed in our pajamas and we went to eat. A day started at 5 am: we were always exhausted. At bedtime, I tagged Lina and cried, " you are it" and I flew up the stairs, chased by Lina. Above I slammed the bedroom door to her nose, the whole house shook. That was really stupid!

Mama Stine flew up the stairs. We jumped into bed (we shared the same bed), but Stine tore the sheet off and grabbed her daughter. In no time Lina was over her knee, her pajama pants off, and her mother spanked her hard on her bare backside. Mama Stine sat on our bed , with her back to me and I was no meter from Lina , who endured smack after smack. I was petrified from fear. Lina immediately started crying, but she cried harder and harder. I mostly saw Stine 's hand, who went up and then struck down, followed by a very loud smack, a terrible cry of Lina, and the hand that went up again for the next blow. I wept and I told to Mama Stine 's back: Stop, stop. It's my fault, I started, I slammed the door.

Mama Stine stopped. Lina was taken by her ear to the wall, where she stood rubbing her sore buttocks vigorously. Even in the half dark of our room, I could see two very red marks, one on every buttock. Stine lifted me out of bed. "You're a good girl, Jeanne, you've admitted that. Knowing that you did the right thing is your reward. Now you get punished because you did not listen after many warnings. " While she held me close to her, she pulled my pants off and I went over the knee. Like all children of that time (I am now sixty), I had suffered smacks and spanks and I could stand something, but this really hurt too much. Stine was a sturdy peasant woman , and she always hit the same place, left and right. I did everything to keep the pain off but the repeated blows became too painful, and I could not take it anymore. That was bad, very bad. I hung half naked over the knee like a doll, howling like a spanked baby. Afterwards, I ended up next to Lina against the wall, till I was sobbing and we were allowed back in bed. Stine gave us a kiss, we promised to be good and soon we were sleeping. In the morning, we were right as rain.

I could write a book about Mama Stine. She was an amazing woman and I loved her as my second mother. You could ask many questions why she did this, but she only followed her heart and it was a warm heart.

HandPrince replies: By all means, Jeanne, please write a book about Mama Stine! (Or at least, write us another short story or two). :-)
If Mama Stine was your Aunt, wouldn't that make her daughter, Lina, your cousin rather than your niece?

Comments:On popular demand (of HP)

Every year I spent six weeks at Mama Stine , while Lina stayed 2 weeks with us when we went to the sea on vacation. Then my dad loaded the Volkswagen Beetle, with three sons in the back seat (the oldest staying home) and Lina and I in the back, in the open trunk. In the trunk in the nose were mainly toys, a minimum of clothes was packed in bags in the car and a couple of suitcases on the rack of the room. My mother called it the flight from Egypt .

We stayed in a small apartment, often with even a few more cousins. Around us, more families we knew stayed. The apartment consisted of a large room with four beds and a pullout sofa, a small kitchen and a toilet. The concrete courtyard with faucet and hose was the bathroom. The privacy was zero , but we did not bother. No holiday happiness will ever match this. My usually fairly strict parents loosened the reins, my mother could not but ignore the chaos . We played from early morning to late evening , rain or shine , while my parents by rotation cooked huge amounts of food, disappearing quickly in our bellies. I've never seen my parents so happy.

There was a strong wind that day with an orange flag , which meant it was dangerous bathing. But then the waves were at their highest , which we found very attractive. I could swim very well , thanks to my father. That was learned with military drill, but afterwards I was rather pleased I could swim so well. My niece Lina could keep floating, my cousin Luc could not swim at all. We were at sea for swimming, so we were allowed in the water, but of course we must not go too far.
But the temptation was great - a bit further the waves were even higher. Luc , a coward, soon went back but Lina and I always ventured a little further, instigated by my older brothers. My mother began to shout and wave , but we did as if we did not hear or see her. The waves broke over us , and Lina was occasionally having a firm push, but I demonstrated how easily I ducked under the biggest waves.

Then my dad appeared , probably attracted by mom, waving more and more wildly. He was not so easy to ignore. He motioned us to immediately come out of the water. That did not look good! We reluctantly came out of the water, where we promptly get a good scolding from a very angry dad. We had to come out the water. What I would rarely do at home, I do now: I talk back, starting to argue, that I can swim well, that the waves are at their finest and I turn my back on him. A back talking daughter, that was not a popular thing to have in 1962. Dad shouts he will explain it to me a lot better. He grabs me and in less than a second, he is resting on one knee in the sea, the other leg up in front of him , and I am over his leg, half hanging, half kneeling, buttocks in the air. I 'm mad, and try to struggle free, but he holds me and starts spanking my bottom...

It stings surprisingly hard, and I can’t help to cry out. I realize my bad situation: over the knee, spanked, crying, with my brothers, Lina, loads of kids and the lifeguard who are watching me. The humiliation is even worse than the pain. And it hurts: I got only some five or six smacks, but my dad is a lot stronger than my mother, he hits hard and on my cold and wet swimsuit, the smacks burn more hotly than ever. The lifeguard profits from the occasion for an educational session: that is what happens to naughty children who go too far in sea.

The only thing my dad was risking in 1962, was congratulations from other parents. However, after the spanking I am allowed to go back in the sea, and I can hide my tears. Lina, a bit awkward and sorry for me, joins me. Soon, we are playing in the waves again and I forget my tears and my hot backside. But we don't go too far: dad's explanation was too clear.

HandPrince replies: Bravo, Jeanne, for your lovely little memory. I'm sorry you got spanked, but at least you were permitted to go back into the water and play again afterwards.

Comments:I love Jeanne's childhood recollections.

Possibly one of the strongest childhood memories I have was when I was in grade 5. One of my classmates, Linda, was late. The teacher asked Linda, "Why were you late?"

Linda seemed uncomfortable and said, "I didn't want to get up."

"What did your Mommy do?" our teacher asked.

"She made me get up," Linda replied in a quite voice.

"How did she do that?" Was our teacher's next question.

Linda hesitated for about five seconds and then everybody in the class heard, "She spanked me."

"She spanked you?" the teacher asked.

"Yes, on my bare bum," was Linda's response. Our teacher nodded and asked if Linda would be late again. Linda's reply was "No."

To my knowledge she never was. This happened around 1982 and I still can remember it to this day.

HandPrince replies: It's surprising that Linda, while so reluctant to confess that shed' been spanked at all, would then want to volunteer that she'd gotten it bare. But who knows."
