Some people with unconventional sexual interests are worried, or convinced, that these interests mean they are mentally ill.
I have good news. Even if you think about spanking a lot, even if you are doing a lot of spanking, if it is not disrupting your life or harming anyone else, you don’t have a psychiatric disorder. In fact, the only scientifically reliable study that is relevant to this question suggests that people who love spanking may be a little healthier than average. We have our Australian friends to think for this fascinating research (I give the details in a later section). Their conclusion is supported by what I’ve read on the blog and in the literature, and by the people I know who share this interest.
That’s why I can say with confidence:
People who love spanking are as mentally healthy as everyone else.
Of course, being interested in spanking doesn’t immunize you against emotional difficulties. If you were abused as a child or suffer from anxiety and depression now, that’s important, and you may be hurting. If you were physically punished in a harmful way when you were younger, you may be trying to come to terms with that now. If so, I encourage you to get professional help. I’ll have a lot to say about what kind of professional is most likely to be able to help you later on. But your interest in spanking isn’t a sickness in itself.
The best proof of this can’t be found in a book. It is in people who integrate spanking into lives that are full and successful in every respect. I know some of these people in person, others through their inspirational blogs (like Bonnie at A Spanko Garden). They are living proof that people who love spanking can lead wonderful lives. If they can do it, you can too.
You may have met people like this, but you wouldn’t know it. They don’t talk about their interest in spanking with people they meet at work or school, that wouldn’t be appropriate. But they are real. And they discreetly visit the secluded meadow.
I can show them to you, tell you what their lives are like. It’s a fascinating story, one I want you to hear.
If you want to integrate accountability in your life, become more goal oriented or just want to spank yourself anyway, you should consider, apart from reading the other articles here, to get the The guide for self spanking. It will teach you the backgrounds of spanking, some things to consider when starting first, and various scenarios in which spanking yourself is necessary.
