This could perhaps go on the Spanking subforum but strictly speaking is not spanking as sometimes not involving the buttocks.
Back years ago, especially in rural areas,and the South,a common form of punishment for erring youngsters and perhaps adults was a whipping on the bare legs with a switch from a tree or bush. Not only painful at the time it left marks, stripes that would last for some time, for days, and anyone who saw them knew what had happened to the person.
Needless to say after a leg switching,the person had no desire to put on swim trunks or a bathing suit and go to the beach or pool, or to wear shorts or a short skirt.
Can't help but think that back in the late 40s or 50s when short shorts for females became fashionable,and when corporal punishment was more widely used and accepted by society, that some young ladies may have gotten their naked legs well-switched for wearing them And also bikinis when they came out. The desired consequence of course being that stripes on the legs would prevent the girl from wearing shorts in public, be too embarrassing having everyone seeing that she had gotten switched. And very likely same thing could have happened in the 60s when mini- skirts were the rage,kept getting shorter and shorter, and a parent decided on this form of "oldfashioned discipline" as a response to such violation of modesty.
Wondering if anyone had had any experience with legs being switched, whether for scanty attire or anything else.
