Subject: How many belt licks or paddle spanks? The question is specifically about spankings with an implement on the bare, rather than hand spankings. As a kid I was spanked with belt from age 11 usually by dad although sometimes my mom and once by my uncle.

The hardest spanking I got was about licks with belt on the bare bottom at age 14 for shoplifting.
