Spanking as therapy
The Libertine, staring Johnny Depp, was seen on British TV recently and in it was a scene where Depp poses as a doctor who offers whipping to his women patients as a bona fide treatment. (See picture above).
In light of genuine experience as a mentor and having recently encountered several other young ladies in need (see Sometimes a girl linked opposite), some research was done.
It seems that flagellation by doctors has been practiced throughout history and as the Libertine depicts, was most prevalent in Restoration England at the end of the 17th century.
Even as recently as the 21st century Russian scientists from the city of Novosibirsk, Siberia, made a sensational report at the international conference devoted to new methods of treatment and rehabilitation in narcology.
This report was widely published:
The report was called “Methods of painful impact to treat addictive behaviour.”
Siberian scientists believe that addiction to alcohol and narcotics, as well as depression, suicidal thoughts and psychosomatic diseases occur when an individual loses his or her interest in life. The absence of the will to live is caused with decreasing production of endorphins – the substance, which is known as the hormone of happiness. If a depressed individual receives a physical punishment, whipping that is, it will stir up endorphin receptors, activate the “production of happiness” and eventually remove depressive feelings.
Russian scientists recommend the following course of the whipping therapy: 30 sessions of 60 strokes on the buttocks in every procedure. A group of drug addicts volunteered to test the new method of treatment: the results can be described as good and excellent.
it is not only in the Russia where this kind of treatment has a following. A brief search revealed no less than seven such medical practitioners in the US alone.
Spanking therapy are regular therapy sessions where spanking is used as a tool to reinforce positive behaviour. Spanking therapy is only effective when the one receiving the therapy has expressed a need for it. This need is felt by a small percentage of people, and spanking therapy should not be used by those who have not expressed such a need.
Have the spankee get to the state of undress you have agreed upon (usually bare-bottom, but may be underpants if nudity is an issue), and put her into the position for spanking (over the knee, bent over the bed, etc.). Then calmly explain what she is being spanked for and what needs to be done to avoid it in the future.
Deliver the spanking with no games. Having her counting licks and verbal chants like “please sir may I have another” can offer a distraction and divert attention away from the spanking and reduces its effects. Ideally the spanking should be given in silence, allowing the smacking sound to be the only noise. An audible reinforcement of the discipline. You should only speak to give necessary commands, such as adjusting the spankee’s position if she has moved.
After the spanking, you should hug the spankee and have her thank you for the discipline. Any misdeeds have now been forgiven, and a quick reminder of the week’s goals should be given.
On another online spanking consultancy a client asks her mentor:
“I am wondering if a spanking for most spankee’s has to be brutal to be effective? For me, when it is more towards brutal I loose any meaning of what I did, and what the spanking is to do for me. All I have my attention on is the pain. I do not feel I need to be badly bruised, and so sore I can not even stand without discomfort. I do not need lasting bruises or pain to be effective.”
“For me the most effective spanking is bare bottomed, over the knee with a hand or belt and a stern lecture with pauses to think and respond. Corner time gives me a break from being spanked, and that is all it does for me.”
Her mentors answer:
“You described it well. Spanking is an entire experience. The scolding, admonishment, lecturing, spanking, corner time, more spanking, and aftercare and reassurance. Often, the sense of disappointment alone is enough to motivate someone to behave better next time.”
“On rare occasions someone will request a very harsh punishment devoid of a lot of lecturing, but this is the exception.”
It must remembered that the primary driver for this is on some level erotic and this level of submission can have profound psychological effects so the inexperienced must proceed with caution.
