“Ever since Jean-Jaques Rousseau’s Confessions, it has been well known to all educationalists that the painful stimulation of the skin of the buttocks is one of the erotic roots of the passive instrument of cruelty (masochism).” (1905) Sigmund Freud. Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality, VII, Page 193.
DefinitionSpanking is a traditional form of corporal punishment. It consists of striking the buttocks, or another part of the body repeatedly, with either an open hand or an implement like a belt, switch or paddle. The term "spanking" generally implies corrective punishment and no intention of permanent injury. Smacking is chiefly a British term and typically used to mean spanking with an open hand. Spanking in the UK usually refers to the BDSM sense. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanking 
Those interested in giving or receiving erotic spankings are sometimes known as spankophiles or spankos. Examples include the poet Algernon Swinburne and the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erotic_spanking [Jan 2005]

Erotic spanking is the practice of spanking another for the sexual gratification of either or both parties. Erotic spanking is generally regarded as a form of BDSM activity, although many spanking devotees do not regard it as such. Spanking can be carried out with the bare hands, a paddle, switch, cane, crop or whip; it is often combined with sexual roleplaying and/or ageplay.

The buttocks are the two masses of muscle (gluteus maximus, sometimes abbreviated to "glute") and fat covering the posterior aspect of the human (primate) pelvis. They allow humans (primates) to sit upright comfortably without resting weight on their feet, as (for example) cats and dogs do when they sit upright.
They belong to the intimate parts. Exposing the bare buttocks as a protest or for fun is called mooning.
In many cultures, corporal punishment is traditionally delivered on the buttocks (it is then called spanking). This is especially true for lighter punishment and domestic discipline on children (and in some cultures, on wives). Different reasons have been put forward to explain this:
--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buttock [Feb 2005]
- The buttocks are usually not exposed, making the punishment invisible to outsiders (and therefore making it difficult to prosecute cases of severe beating).
- The buttocks are considered shameful, and having to disrobe them for punishment is added humiliation.
- While there are many nerve endings in the area (ensuring substantial pain), there is relatively little risk of the victim sustaining long-term injury since internal organs are unlikely to be affected.
- Some critics of corporal punishment see it as merely a sexual fetish, pointing to the well-documented spanking fetish as evidence, and the buttocks as intimate parts.

The Elegant Spanking (1995) - Maria Beatty
Not for the sexually squeamish, this black-and-white porn (for lack of a better word) film -- sort of a lesbian version of a Jean Genet scenario -- features performance artist Rosemary Delain as "The Mistress" who sexually dominates, humiliates and satiates her submissive maid Kitty (independent filmmaker Maria Beatty). A silent film accompanied by music by John Zorn, the sensual tale includes gentle spanking, graphic lovemaking and a memorable scene involving water sports (bedroom cocktails?) Not for straight men or the faint of heart.

Electric Spanking War Babies (1981) - Funkadelic
Electric Spanking War Babies (1981) - Funkadelic [Amazon.com]
George Clinton's Funkadelic went through many changes over the years, and though the group's name is here, neither the personnel nor the music has much in common with earlier incarnations. That said, there is some fantastic playing here. Newer members--Blackbyrd McKnight, Ron Ford, and Ron Dunbar among them--keep the energy level high and shift the music into heavy funk. Clinton pal and influence Sly Stone takes a few turns at the mike, and Eddie Hazel proves there was no guitar player better equipped to match wits with Clinton. The lyrics are sublimely surreal, and the band's musical quotes (including "She Loves You") are dexterous and right on the money. --Rob O'Connor for amazon.com

The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1782) - Jean-Jacques Rousseau [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
Mademoiselle Lambercier showed towards me a mother's affection and also a mother's authority, which she sometimes carried so far as to inflict on us the usual punishment of children when we had deserved it. ... I had found in the pain and even in the shame of it an element of sensuality which left more desire than fear of receiving the experience again from the same hand. It is true that, as in all this a precocious sexual element was doubtless mixed, the same chastisement if inflicted by her brother would not have seemed so pleasant... Who would have believed, that this childish punishment, received at the age of 8 from the hand of a young woman of 30, would have determined my tastes, my desires, my passions, for the rest of my life?
The foundational Romantic text was Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Confessions. Rousseau began with the assertion that here, for the first time ever, was an autobiography that gave it all away, told it all. The killer ingredient, which sold the book for over two centuries on a whisper and a nod, was Rousseau's confession of sexual masochism and his recollection of the childhood spankings that provoked it. Aside from this, Confessions is 600 or so pages of dissimulation, self-contradiction, treachery, special pleading, innuendo, raving, revenge, and lies. But what gushes out is the overwhelming "presence" of Rousseau himself: the paranoiac, the plaintiff, the pervert. The scandalous incoherence of precisely this person, no better, after all, than he should be, behaving badly, just like us in fact: real, really here. --Fred Vermorel, October - November 2000, Village Voice Literary Supplement, Lurking on the Dark Side of Biography, [http://www.villagevoice.com/vls/170/vermorel.shtml]
