I am intrigued by the number of accounts that I have heard from various friends, relatives and acquaintances, of their experiences at school, being punished on the nearly or completely bare bottom.

I quite easily believe that this was a very common thing in Victorian and Edwardian times, and quite possibly up until the WW2.

There is too much evidence in literature and the anecdotes of people,predominatly male, who attended school in these times.

I did not believe that it would have been a very regular or common activity in relatively modern times, at least in schools.

In government run state schools,the accounts generally occur in infants or primary school, and rarely was the bottom bared completely, except for one instance from a small rural school.

Private schools, in particular boys only primary schools,appear to have the majority of accounts of pants down bare bottom smackings,mostly performed by female teachers.

I have not heard any tales of girls receiving this punishment,but that may be merely a reluctance on their part to describe such things.

I do know that my boy cousins living in the UK, were spanked and slippered on the bare bottom at their prep school, circa 1960s.

This was traditional apparently, and my Uncle was well aware of it, as he attended the same school as a boy.

A very good friend of my older brother, who boarded at a very distinguished Marist Brothers college in Sydney, described one of the brothers as making the boys take down their trousers before caning them.

Apparently this teacher would cheerfully inform the boy,that he was going to take some of the skin off his bottom, before laying on the cane.

I know several other chaps who attended various boarding schools,who mentioned the habits of some of the teachers, some of which appear to be quite bizarre,including one who took it upon himself,to sooth the boys' bare bottoms with lanolin after a caning.

My own personal experience is of a partially bared bottom in primary school, where our female teachers, never the males, would pull our little shorts and underpants up our behinds to bare our cheeks to smack.

At my secondary school, the prefects would slipper boys in the prefects room on the bare bottom, to 'liven them up'.

This was more in the mannner of 'hazing',which I think is the American term,than actually official punishment.

It would be interesting if other contributors to the forum have heard of,or have personal experiences, of this.

In closing, I should mention my surprise,that in listening to these accounts, I have not detected any particular abhorrence or resentment from the recipients.
