Not sure whether to believe this reader:
I laughed at your spanking post, which I read immediately. I am the child of a man who truly believed in bare-bottom-with-leather-belt whippings as the only proper way to punish a child. (He's from West Virginia and inherited his beliefs from his father and grandfather, which I had to hear about often.) So it's safe to say that I had quite a bit of belt while growing up.
Oddly, as a fairly well-adjusted adult (middle-aged) gay man, I now crave the same treatment from my lovers. My current lover is a much older angry black man who truly believes that I was sent to him by God.
Just Sayin' !!!
