Let’s face it and not beat around the bush, the purpose of corporal punishment is to provide a very painful stimulus to a young lady’s backside in order to enact a change in behavior or attitude. Yes, there are several different aspects of a girl being paddled at school that she might not like, and that can aid in the learning process, but at the very core of this event is the fact that her bottom will end up hurting. She probably does not like it that as an older teen, that already feels like she is an adult, that there is this person at school that has the power to discipline her in a manner that they see fit. In most cases, especially in larger high schools, the person charged with such discipline probably does not even know this young lady. It is very similar to the court system, in which the person in charge of deciding her fate was not present during her infraction. They are presented with facts, maybe a statement from a witness (teacher), and then they have the responsibility to provide a sentence that is equal to the crime.
There are many different “sentences” that this person has at their disposal, including detention, in-school suspension, home suspension, even expulsion. Luckily, there are still 19 states that allow corporal punishment in the public school setting, and even more in which it still takes place in private schools. Now the “judges” in these schools, typically a school administrator, or vice principal, and in some cases the teachers themselves, find corporal punishment to be a very effective tool to be used in the sentencing process, so much so that the most recent report released in 2014, showed that corporal punishment was “officially” administered 838 times a day in those 19 states. This equate to someone getting their bottom paddled at school roughly every 34 seconds, every single day in the US public school system.
The reason this sentence is used so liberally in the schools that allow it, is that it is a quick, effective, and memorable disciplinary tool. But the only way that it is
effective is if it is applied in a forceful, meaning very painful, manner. No lesson has ever been learned as a result of school corporal punishment when it is applied lightly. A young lady that walks out of the office thinking “it was not that bad” will do nothing to change her behavior. It is that principal, coach, or teacher, with the reputation as being a “heavy hitter” that commands the most respect, and in turn, has the best behaved students. When a young lady knows that the results of her actions will result in a bruised bottom and tears in her eyes, she tends to follow the rules even better.
Over the years, many administrators have figured out that applying corporal punishment in an effective manner is not just about swinging full force with the paddle. Yes, how hard the swat is applied is the cornerstone of all corporal punishment and great care should be taken to paddle a young lady’s bottom as hard as possible. However, there are other elements that can be added to make it a longer lasting punishment. One of the primary ways this is accomplished is positioning. Many people might think that when a young lady’s bottom is getting spanked, with a large wooden paddle, that all positions are created equal, but this is certainly not the case.
The very best position for paddling a high school girl’s bottom will be one that pulls her bottom as tight as possible. Everyone has a padded backside, which is why it is the designated target for spanking. This is a spot on the body that we have learned over generations of spanking that is pretty resilient and can take a considerable amount of punishment. But as a result of this padding, it also takes a considerable amount of force to make the proper impression, especially when we are spanking over clothing. A large wooden school paddle is a pretty good equalizer, in that it hits with a heavy thud, not as much of a sting, and it can provide the amount of discipline required even over clothing. But the most effective administrators out there do whatever they can to stack things in their favor, assuring the most pain as possible, which after all, is the very point or paddling a young lady’s bottom in the first place.
In the school environment, the most effective position for paddling a naughty girl’s bottom will always be her grabbing her ankles. It pulls the skin very tight, assuring the least amount of padding as possible, but it also serves a few other purposes. The very first, is the fact that this position is not comfortable at all to be in. People might use it to stretch at the gym, but never for very long, as it pulls all the muscles tight. It is even less comfortable for the young lady who was just told to assume it, right there in a school office.
This is also a position that leaves one feeling very vulnerable and exposed. It might seem like a slight difference, but being bent over a desk, with the comfort of having her arms resting on the desk, providing her with support, seems far less intimidating than grabbing her ankles. Every day, in one way or another, we find ourselves leaning over objects in the home and in an office environment, but this is certainly not the case with grabbing our ankles. This is a very foreign feeling, not something that happens very often at all, and is even more meaningful when she knows that she is assuming this position so a large wooden paddle can be used to spank her bottom full force.
This is also a position of control, which establishes the authority of the person charged with carrying out such a punishment. In the classroom, a teacher may very
well be in charge, and have the ability to write up a disciplinary referral for any student. But as in control as they are, they do not have the authority to tell a student to stand up, turn around, widen their stance, and grab their ankles. Really, there is no one in this young lady’s life who has the power or authority to tell her to grab her ankles. But at this school, in this state, THIS person, the one in charge of all of the discipline, does have this authority. And in this case, she is being told to grab her ankles for a very specific purpose.
When she finds herself in that moment, with her hands on her ankles, everything becomes very focused on the primary topic at hand, her bottom. There is no denying it, there is nothing to distract from it, as at this very moment her bottom is sticking up in the air. The rest of her body, her face, and everything else become a footnote to the subject at hand. It was indeed her behavior that led up to this very moment, a long conversation has taken place, maybe even a phone call to her parents has already happened, but now the entire focus is on her bottom. She feels exposed and vulnerable and all she can think about is what is coming next.
While this administrator has already accomplished quite a bit as a result of this position, the most important part of it all once again leads us back to padding. The skin could not be pulled any tighter on her bottom as a result of this position. The layers of fat that gather at the surface when she is in a standing position have now been pulled out of the way, giving better access to the muscles of her bottom. With a hand spanking, the purpose is to provide a great amount of sting to her skin, with positioning being far less important. But a school paddling, applied over clothing, is not about the sting to her skin, it is about contact with her muscles. The super tight jeans that most high school girls are so fond of, also help in compressing her bottom while she is bent, further allowing access to the muscle groups that allow for the most learning to take place.
A paddle is quite effective in pushing the skin and fat out of the way to get to the muscles below (see attached animation of a bare bottom school paddling and
you can see the paddle move the top layers out of the way, while getting deeper to her muscles), but the tighter the bottom when the paddling begins the more effective it will be overall. The goal of a school paddling is not 30 seconds of discipline; it is about 3 days of a lingering punishment that continues to remind her of her behavior. By doing whatever is requires to gain better access to the muscles of her bottom, the administrator can be better assured that she will not be back to his office anytime soon.
With the conversations over, the paperwork done, the phone call made, with her legs spread wide, and her grabbing her ankles, it is now all about the application of pain. She is now in a position that is ideal for the learning process. She is not only embarrassed and vulnerable with her skin is pulled very tight, she really is in the ideal position to allow for the very best swing with a heavy wooden school paddle. A good administrator generally will have a paddle close to 20” in length and 5” in width. This allows for better coverage with each swat of the paddle. More important than the length and width is the thickness of the paddle. Anything less than ½” in thickness is not going to get the job done as well as a thicker paddle. A ¾ inch paddle is ideal and really allows for maximum force of impact. It carries enough weight to really do deep with each swat, assuring that maximum effectiveness is achieved with each swat.
With a young lady before him in his office, bottom in the air, proper paddle in hand, it is time to get to work. The effective administrator will do his or her very best to make each and every swat count. With very few swats allowed to get the job done, the very first should be applied as hard as the last. In addition to this, the swats should be layered on top of each other. With a heavy school paddle, it is not safe to try and cover all of her bottom as her parents might do at home with a belt. This is a heavy wooden implement, so care must be exercised to stay clear of her tailbone. Each and every swat should be applied to her “sit spot”, just above where her thighs meet her bottom. The first purpose for this location as the target is that it is the spot in which they can paddle as hard as they can, without fear of injury. We are not talking about a young child here, in many cases, these are 18 year old “adults”, and a gentle little spanking is no longer going to do the trick when trying to change a behavior. Behavior is changed by applying the paddle in the most forceful manner that it can safely be applied.
As the paddle is now being applied forcefully to her bottom, another element of this position comes into play. She is not able to just sit there and take it, like she might if bent over a desk. If the swats are being applied effectively, it is going to be hard for her to maintain her position. At the very least, she will be lifted up to her toes with each swat, and if it is a really good paddling, the force will try and knock her forward. At this point, she becomes a part of the process in that she needs to actively work to stay in position. It is not easy to hold your ankles as someone paddles you, and every part of her body comes into play to simply stay in place. This is fantastic in that she is now actively helping with her own paddling. She has to work to keep her bottom in the air making it the best target possible to allow for the hardest paddling possible. With each and every swat, it gets harder and harder for her, but she has no choice but to comply and take her punishment.
When the paddling is finally over, within the hour, the choice of positions will really begin to pay off. When her body has calmed down, her adrenaline and endorphin dumps long gone, the learning starts again. Yes, the paddling itself was a very painful experience, hopefully one that left her in tears, but a paddle is used for a very good reason…long term learning. As each hour passes after her paddling, the soreness will grow. The affected muscles will tighten and become very sore to the touch. With each step she takes, in those way too tight jeans, the fabric will pull into her now very sore bottom. When she sits, the jeans will pull even tighter into her bottom, but here comes the very best part…sitting.
The bottom is the ideal target for the reasons stated above, but also for long term learning. The average high school student spends close to 8 hours a day at a desk.
These are not padded, comfy, office seats, these are hard wood desks. In addition, in today’s day and age of every teen girl spending all her time staring at a screen, there is a good chance of at least another 4-6 hours of sitting after school. So now we have taken her least favorite part of the day, being school, and added an element of learning that makes it unbearable to even sit in class, AND, we have taken her favorite activities such as Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and everything else and turned even those things into part of the learning process. For the next few days, nothing she does is going to allow her an escape from the pain, and even more importantly, her understanding of why that pain in her bottom exists in the first place.
This is the goal and the very motivation for paddling a high school girl in the first place, to hurt her bottom in such a way that she changes her behavior. The science is simple, the harder the paddling, the more likely she will do everything in her power to avoid one in the future. The more her bottom hurts, and the longer her bottom hurts, the better the chances for success. When a young lady is required to grab her ankles for hard school corporal punishment with a paddle, the experience will become much more beneficial in her long term growth and development.
