30 Years ago, being a young boy with ADHD like me in a communist country where the science in this illness was so primitive, you had to deal with a lot of spankings, because all the people sow you like a child Menace and this thing caused me a lot of problems at my home where I was spanked almost weekly for a lot of things like bad grades and bad behavior on school or disobedience at home.
Fortunately for me, because my mother was almost the only parent present at home during the daylight, she was mostly my spanker. Because of my behavior I never blame her or my stepdad for the spankings that I received during my childhood.
While my stepfather spanked me with a belt really hard but without to present any interest in doing more than a duty of typical head of household, my mother liked to spank me much less severe, the only problem was that she liked to embarrass me in front of anyone was around. Almost every time I was spanked in the kitchen or in the livingroom while my stepbrothers was at home or even worse - when we had guests. I was asked to undress everything from waist down and then to cut and to bring a switch from outside.
Back in the house, she polite invited me to stand in "touch your toes" or to bend over the table and then she began to apply about 3 to 10 strokes on my bare bottom in front of anyone was around. Even if she delivered only 3 strokes for a minor offence, this 3 strokes was soo hard that almost they really cutting my skin blistered my buttoks (especially on the seating place) for a few days. Almost every time I was sent to the corner or to do some chores.
Even if this things was may be also familiar to other families, for the next reasons I strongly suspected my mother that also had some fetish interest:
1. She liked to told me a lot of stories about how her brothers was spanked when they where kids. And with a lot of details who was also present in my own spankings that I received from her. According with my mother's narration, she definitely enjoyed to be witness on her brothers spankings and - for my bad luck - in my childhood she was try to recreate scenes from her memories using other perspective - from a spanker.
2. She loved to spread lotions or honey on my damaged skin to calm me and to speed my blisters healing - but the real reason, in my opinion - was that once applied the lotion (especially when she used honey) , she wanted me to stay naked from the waist down for another hour or so to avoid the touching of my sticky skin with my clean clothes.
3. She enjoyed to tell to everyone about my last spanking, especially in my presence when - if we wasn't in public - she ask me to show her my bare skin of my bottom to inspect again healing stage.
I think that I also started to have a spanking fetish since my childood, especially because I was dealing with a lot of ... nice feelings while my mother had spread that lotion on my bottom skin and because I was almost a bit proud to show my welted butt. When I was only with my mom, I was really happy to had a reason to run around naked in the house, especially after I turned 11 or so and I was't allowed anymore to go nude in the backyard during the summer.
I don't know why, but I really feel that my childhood was over when I was around 15 and both of my parents stopped to spank me.
