Back in my childhood, when corporal punishment was a common and quite normal thing for me and most of my friends, we usually knew when someone had gotten his or her backside smacked. It was not a topic we discussed with much pleasure though – we tried to avoid the topic, mostly.
But if one of us sat down a little gingerly or other clear signs of a recent chastisement were visible, there would be a short conversation, typically asking if he or she had gotten a spanking and what for.
Only with my sister and my best friend I ever talked about our punishments with all the details. Oh well, and now I do with you here…. 🙂
How about you? When you were young, did you talk about your punishments with your friends?
