My dad only ever spanked me once, and I was eighteen years old when he did it.
And, you bet I deserved it.
Looking back at it now, I’m shocked at my own behaviour.
We lived in a small council flat in inner London and I could easily have burnt the place down and the whole block with it.
I can’t explain why I did it, it was just so stupid.
As a teenager, I used to like to lock myself in the bathroom. No, I know we all did, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I used to take a stack of paper and a box of matches in and make a bonfire in the bath.
I would wait until I was the only one in the flat before I set the damn thing alight. All it needed was for a lick of flame to catch a curtain and the whole place would be on fire.
I was easily found out. The smell of burning paper would hang around for a long time and was still there hours after I put out my private blaze.
One day my dad asked me about it. I lied, of course, and dad let it go. He was a very weak man and I don’t suppose he was good at confrontation. So, I carried on burning. A few weeks passed and he quizzed me after he once again caught the tell-tale whiff of smoked paper.
I didn’t lie this time, but I made an excuse. I said I had been doing a chemistry experiment in the bathroom and paper caught fire by accident. I don’t know if he really believed me, but once again he didn’t argue with me.
It was about two weeks after that I ended up over his knee with a bedroom slipper slapping into my upturned bum.
Yes, I had another bonfire and again, even though I opened the windows to let out the smoke, I was caught out by the incriminating smell.
This time, dad had decided he would take action. He confronted me with the accusation I was a fire bug and I had no choice but to admit it.
I suppose he had made a plan of action in advance. He gave me a little lecture about the dangers of fire. I didn’t take much notice of him. Looking back I realise I’d always despised him. He was a factory worker of the lowest grade possible and had been for twenty years and always would be. Even at the age of eighteen, when I was still studying for my A-levels, I knew I was going to leave him a long way behind. And, the sooner I did that, the better, as far as I was concerned.
What happened next surprised me. We had been talking in the kitchen when he said we should go next door to the living room. I hesitated and found he had gripped my arm quite tightly and was pushing me out the door.
My heart was thumping. I had no idea what was going on. Despite my arrogance towards my father, I was quite a shy, timid kid.
He pulled me into the next room. Our flat was tiny and there wasn’t much in the living room: a beat-up three piece suite, dining room table and chairs, a sideboard by the window and a TV set.
He pulled one of the dining room chairs into the middle of the carpet. Before, I could fathom what was going on; he reached towards the fireplace and picked up one of his slippers.
Then I knew. I suppose I could have just told him to stuff it and walk out the door, but, as I say, I was a bit timid. Like father, like son, I suppose. I was also a couple of inches taller than him and he was running to fat, even then, so he wouldn’t have been able to force me across his knee.
He sat down in the chair, holding his bedroom slipper in his right hand.
I stood looking at him. The pathetic man, I thought.
My heart hadn’t stopped racing since our confrontation in the kitchen, but I was also now finding it difficult to catch my breath. Something strange was going on inside of me: a part of me really wanted dad to spank me. God knows, I deserved it.
Without saying a word, he reached out and took me by my left arm and hauled me across his knees. To my utter surprise I didn’t struggle. I could easily have forced my way to my feet and left the room. Instead, I adjusted myself across his knees, until I was in position with my arms out in front of me, palms down on the carpet. My torso rested comfortably across his lap and I kept my knees straight so my legs were an inch or so off the floor at the back.
Dad took hold of me around the middle of my body to make sure I wasn’t going to fall off as he went about spanking my bottom.
I was wearing two-toned Sta-Press trousers – very fashionable at the time – which had an adjustable waist so you needn’t wear a belt. There were no back pockets, so dad had a fine view of my bum and would have seen I was wearing but the briefest of underpants, which left a lot of my buttock cheeks uncovered. Clearly, the trend setters of fashion at the time had no expectation that people wearing their clothes might need protection from their dad’s slipper.
I lay across dad’s knee, waiting for the first slap. There was quite a pause – was he having second thoughts? – before Whack!! Down it came. I gasped a little. Then came another slap and another.
My bum was warming up, but I wasn’t in any great pain. Nonetheless, I wriggled across his lap: was it just a reflex action against the assault on my bottom?
The next whacks were harder and I grimaced and screwed up my face up in quite some discomfort.
But, the pain, such as it was, was bearable.
I’m not sure how many smacks with the slipper he gave me: but it was probably no more than a dozen.
He let me up and I stood in front of him, not quite knowing what I was supposed to do next. My face was bright red from being upside down, but I doubt if my bum was more than a shade of pink.
My bottom was hot, but it wasn’t particularly sore and certainly not throbbing. I don’t think I even felt the need to rub it.
“Go upstairs,” dad said. And, that was it: my first and only spanking.
I went to my bedroom and in time-honoured fashion I stood in front of the mirror, took down my trousers and pants and inspected the damage. Truthfully, there was nothing much to show for it.
I lay on my bed for a while reliving the past ten minutes. I couldn’t believe that I had been taken across my dad’s knee and given a dose of the slipper. As I recalled each moment of the spanking, from being scolded in the kitchen, dragged into the living room, forced down over his knees and then walloped with the slipper, I felt an unfamiliar stirring within me.
I closed my eyes tight to try to visualise what I must have looked like draped over dad’s knee, the slipper rising and falling and smacking into the seat of my trousers.
The vision in my mind’s eye stirred my cock a little and I realised it was turning me on. My hand went down to touch it, but it wasn’t quite getting hard. I wasn’t aroused enough.
How typical of my dad – he couldn’t even spank me properly.
Tugging at my todger, I let my imagination take over and re-ran my spanking as it should have been.
We are in the living room. Dad has lectured me and I know I am to get the spanking of my life: and I deserve every whack of it.
Dad pulls the chair out from behind the table, puts it in the centre of the room and sits down. In his hand is a bedroom slipper. I am shaking my head and babbling on about “never doing it again.” But, like millions of naughty children before in the same situation, it does no good. I am going across dad’s knee.
Dad points to a spot to the right of where he is sitting. “Stand there,” he orders, and I do as I am told.
“Take down your trousers.”
Slowly and carefully, I undo the button, slide down the zip, and push the trousers down until they drop of their own accord to my ankles. My yellow shirt covers all but the lowest inch of my honeycombed-coloured pants.
I blush, my face going cherry red, standing in front of dad with just my thin pants covering my bottom.
“Bend over my knee.”
Leaning down, momentarily I place a hand on dad’s thigh to steady myself, and then lower myself across his lap, reaching down for the carpet beyond.
I let him position me across his lap. My arm is taken and folded up my back, securing me and preventing any possible escape.
My shirt is neatly folded up, exposing my lower back to the cool air of the room.
Then dad takes hold of the top of my pants. I panic. He’s going to bare my arse.
Then, I am lying across dad’s knee, bottom bare. I breathe in sharply. Suddenly, there’s a loud crack echoing round the room as my bum gets a mighty whack that stings me across both my pert round buttocks.
“Ah!” I cry. After just two more weighty blows from the large slipper, I can feel my bottom aflame with a smarting soreness that hurts and stings.
With just two or three seconds between each smack of the slipper, the spanking quickly develops into a slow steady rhythmic rising and falling of the slipper. Each time the slipper contacts forcefully with my once pale creamy-white bottom, I grimace and screw my face up in some pain.
Dad’s large slipper thumps heavily down on my naked bottom time and time again. My bottom is really very sore now, and my arm hurts where I have been struggling and dad has restrained me.
I am howling and kicking like a child, begging dad to stop hurting me. Dad takes no notice: he is the master of me and he is giving me the sound spanking I so thoroughly deserve.
As the spanking continues, I realize with shock that my ass is on fire. It burns with a pain that bewilders me. Every fresh smack of the slipper tears a gasp from me, and I am crying; in fact, I’ve been crying for some time.
Yes, tears are flowing down my eighteen-year-old face, and nothing I can do will stop them flowing. My body lies flopped across dad’s lap and I just sob and sob as he pounds away.
Then it is over. With contempt dad rolls me off his lap and I fall to the floor, weeping buckets of tears. I stumble to my feet, disorientated. I am not sure where I am.
My face is red and hot. My hands go to try to sooth my burning bottom.
I have spent the last ten minutes or so draped across dad’s knee with my trousers around my ankles and underpants around my knees. Dad has given my bottom and the top of my legs a thorough spanking. Not one square millimetre of my rear end has avoided his attention. My bum is aglow.
It has been a long, humiliating and very painful bare bottom spanking.
Now, dad is warning me that if I ever start another fire he will take a cane to my bare backside, young adult or not!
“Get up to your room,” he orders. I thank him before leaving the living room, closing the door quietly behind me.
Yes, that’s the way to give a proper spanking.
