Yes, I love this nostalgic photo of a vintage birching of a naughty woman, on her bare bottom.

Veronica, as a young, sexy lady in my early fifties :-) I realise that my own very strict upbringing is also now vintage !
Although not quite as vintage as this photo ha-ha.
But there were black n white photos all around the house. And my grandma was often around to oversee spankings and strict discipline which was the bedrock of our traditional, family life in Georgia in the late 1960s. Oh my, in fact, domestic spanking was embedded in the whole suburban community back then- faith, religion, moral codes, right and wrong and "not sparing the rod" seemed to control parental attitudes Veronica! As you know from your upbringing in the 1970s/80s, it was still traditionally "1950s" in character for naughty daughters.

I remember talking to younger moms and girl friends since 2000, who were more used to PC (especially those from Europe and not from the South Veronica !) Oh my, they were horrified to hear that my mom used to soundly smack the cotton-white skin on my bare backside with a rattan switch in the 1960s and 70s. Being a naughty girl meant cotton white panties pulled down and tender botty bare for the cane from my mom !!(aka the lil' rattan switch permanently kept in the downstairs cupboard !) ....and sadly not groundings or naughty steps. If only Veronica !
Again, they gasped to hear me say harsh whuppin's were just a fact of life and growing up in our strict, conservative, Southern household. Times have changed Veronica!

So yes, my experience is now vintage but at least mommaspankings.com accurately reflects punishment and attitudes when I was a lil' girl. Dana Specht is my mommy Veronica, ha-ha. Oh my! An update on the original Nu West Debby/mother scenes!
Vintage Brenda :-) xx
