Recap: Spanko Brunch 2.0 for February 19

Does spanking work as motivation to break a bad habit or reinforce a good one? Readers had this to say.

Arched one: Have never tried that...having said that I'll say she spanks me for anything she desires. Maybe I should suggest it and see if it works. I do need a diet.

Sir Wendel: The misses likes her chocolate and ice cream but too much is not good especially since there is a history of diabetes in her family. I’ll find secret stashes scattered throughout the house that she raids all times of the day. If I catch her I spank her bottom with the paddle. The problem is that she likes a sore bottom just as much as candy and ice cream.

abby: Yes, with Master's "help" I have lost over 60 pounds.

Baxter: My wife and I both need to lose weight so are using spanking as an incentive. I want to lose 26 pounds and so regularly I get 26 whacks with the paddle. She wants to lose 60 and she gets those.

Roz: Great question Hermione, not something we have tried either, but I gather it is effective for some.

Simon: Absolutely not! Spanking etc. is something I do for fun so it wouldn't work.

Anon: Spankings in our household are determine by my wife. Yes, it could be a habit I need to break, language (I have a potty mouth as my wife calls it, so soap is part of the punishment) staying out late with my friends, the dreaded spanking is if I am disrespectful of my mother-in-law. So as my wife said I'm improving spank by spank.

Ronnie: Yes when I needed to loose weight caning was used and was very effective.

Enzo: Great question Hermione. Yes in the past. And yes would definitely use this again as probably the easiest to understand ("bridge to use") to sell spanking to non-spankers.

Amber: It seems to me that the only way that could work is if spanking is disliked. Otherwise, it would be like what... "If you don't stop chewing gum, I am going to get you some ice cream!"

Provides a subconscious incentive to continue behavior rather than cease it.

Amy: Going back to school, we've found, has opened the door to many spanking opportunities. Most within play, they do have an edge of seriousness to them as I am trying to achieve a major goal here. We've discovered some negative side effects to poor eating and are using the threat of spanking to ward off that habit. So far so good. A candy or coffee hasn't seemed more important than a blistered bottom.

Hermione: I enjoy spankings as much as as I do candy and chocolate, so for me, a spanking as a deterrent or incentive to stick to a diet would not work. It would be nice to receive one (or several) as a reward for sticking to a diet or exercising more.

Thank you all for participating this week. Next time, something completely different!

Again, late!

Tried it but it didn't work as I just LOVE a hot, sore bottom. Could try the opposite I suppose but where's the fun in that?
