The lady doth protest too much

12Sep11

Read an account of a woman who when at school in the 1970s was taught by her cousin. She was 18 and in the sixth form and he was her geography teacher.

The young lady in question thought she could get away with anything and he believed that she couldn’t. The upshot was whenever she played him up he would spank her with a plimsoll on the bare bottom.

According to her she would argue and protest and threaten to ‘tell on him,’ him not really being empowered to use corporal punishment. However, whenever they had one of these arguments, not only did she never act on these idle threats but would submit to corner time during break until her was ready to spank her.

“I was mortified as he frequently made me stand with my knickers around my ankles and I was terrified that at any moment someone would come in. I knew that some of the other teachers knew he sometimes spanked me but they turned a blind eye to it, so he had nothing to fear from my humiliation. I on the other hand would never live it down if some of the other kids had seen me.”

This begs the question if they both knew she was going to get spanked then why did she always put up a fight and make matters worse for herself? As if we didn’t already know.

    Another case of “complicated psychological games”. I take it this was in Britain.

      Well of course it was in the UK – where else on the planet do they have the interlect for complicated psychological games??? :p

  2. I had to google “plimsoll.” What funny things men use to spank innocent girls with! According to Wikipedia, a plimsoll would be a pair of Keds in America, for any other confused yanks. I thought at first a plimsoll might be an umbrella. It sounded like that to me, but then I remembered you call an umbrella a “brolly.”

    This speaking the same language sure is challenging.

      tennis shoes, sneakers, similar – a standard ready implement in UK schools right up to the 1980s.

      It was unofficial. Ie hidden. 😦

    Well, I don’t know and I would love to know. It is a total mystery to me.
