There was a thread that asked the interesting question about whether adults in the past often had a sexual motivation for spanking kids. The conclusion reached by many of the members who responded to this topic was, I seem to recall, that many of them did! I know in my own experience this was certainly the case! The other side of the coin is, of course, how common it was for kids, especially teenagers, to find spankings sexually arousing!? Even if the spanking itself was not, while one/you were receiving it, sexually arousing (since it would almost certainly hurt like hell); than the aftermath of the spanking, once the burning heat and throbbing pain had died down to be replaced by a much more bearable, warm, prickly heat, how many members experienced sexual and erotic feelings that were actually quite pleasant and even enjoyable!? Of course when seeing and even just hearing a spanking in progress - when it was not your butt in the firing line - afforded you the chance to enjoy, or at least experience sexual arousal from the outset! I, for one, definitely found spanking sexually arousing! Regarding my own spankings, once the hot burning sensation had subsided to a more bearable, warm and prickly heat, I certainly experienced sexual and erotic thrills; often masturbating also! With regard to the spankings I saw and heard I also was sexually aroused and would often go to a quiet place and masturbate; reliving in my head the whole experience! These events, along with my peeks at my friend Kevin's, Dad's Playboy collection, were the staple of my first sexual awakenings! No wonder I always associate those vintage Playboy centerfolds with spanking! As well as, of course, admiring and appreciating these beauties in their own right!I feel absolutely no guilt or shame about these feelings and sensations I experienced! Not even that I masturbated! For a start, these sexual feelings were to some extent involuntary and pysiological! They were not something I purposely willed and looked for! Sure by masturbating and staying to listen and watch (though on occasions I had no choice in the matter) one of my contemporaries get their behinds blistered, I obviously stimulated, intensified and encouraged them (sexual/erotic feelings); but the actual sexual arousal had a more primordial and subconscious origin to begin with! Also, the whole nature and ritual of 'old-fashioned, bare bottom spanking' is, if not inherently sexual and erotic, than is certainly something that can never completely be devoid of some sexual and erotic nature! The buttocks after all are an erogenous zone! In my opinion, anyway! If anyone begs to differ on this viewpoint, feel free to voice your veiws and opinions! In this respect I feel even more absolved and exonerated with regard to both the sexual and erotic feelings I experienced; along with my subsequent masturbatory activities! Growing up in such an environment how could anybody be otherwise!These are of course personal opinions; by there very nature subjective! I would be interested in hearing other members opinions on this topic! Perhaps embellishing their thoughts and opinions with personal experiences and memories of their own!
