Did anyone else get a soap stick as a punishment in childhood. I was terrified of them as a boy. I was sent to live with two old maid aunts when I was four and they were very strict. Enemas and suppositories were a regular part of keeping me "clean and sweet." But what I really hated was the soap stick. I can't remember exactly when they started, I think around age seven. The procedure was the same as taking my temperature. I remember being all pins and needles when I watched her dip the soap stick in the water. Somehow I knew it was going in my bottom. I was undressed and then laid over her lap with a towel on lap. She would apply a little vaseline and then she would begin working the slick soap stick into my anus. At first it wasn't bad then it would start to itch and burn. I saw stop but she says I have to have more. Then she would put me on my potty to make a doo doo for her. I really hated it at age 10. She had made a new soap stick and she would leave it out on the counter so I could see it while she gave me my bath. Knowing the whole time that was was going to give me "the stick" when I got out.
