My worst paddling was 10 swats given very hard, and they gave it in two fives, which was bad. I wasn't expecting to get paddled that day. I thought they'd deal with it Friday after they contacted my mom as they had to check out what I'd been doing. I had on a thin skirt so it stung a whole lot. Mr. Johnson paddled. Mr. Samualson witnessed. The swats were given quick, about a minute for all 5 each time and very hard. There was about 10 minutes between sessions. I was bent over the end of the desk holding the sides.

[My buttocks were red] all day, [and bruised] a couple of days.

We all went back to class and it kinda burned on the seat. I was conscious I'd been paddled and it still gave a zap after lunch when I sat down at a desk.

The first swat was a shock and the sting was awesome. It hurt a lot worse than I expected, like a loud BANG as it hit and an instant sting, and then a few seconds later a real burn across my buttocks--like someone had set fire back there. All my nerve-endings were lit up. Then it happened again, and then a third swat. The build-up of how much it stung my ass was incredible and it kept tingling long after the swats, like “pins and needles,” little sharp electric shocks.

I was bruised for about 8 or 9 days, certainly over a week I remember. The redness was still there when I went to bed that night.

My buttocks were getting kinda numb but they were still zinging from the other swats. The 3rd one of the 5 was lower and caught the tops of my thighs, which was extremely painful, like he was aiming for the bare part of my ass and let it go too low.

I was red for HOURS. Bruised about 4 days I think

After the paddling my butt was red all day. It was still very red when I went to bed and there was even some redness the next morning. It was bruised for 10 days afterward. The tops of my thighs were red too, but not bruised except one slight mark on the right leg.

Mr. Kendricks seemed to swing back further with the paddle and take like a little half step back before bringing it back to smack across both buttocks. He takes like a breath before hitting each time, at the top of the swing back.

I was red right over both buttocks. The bruising was like on the fleshiest part of each butt cheek, the part which juts out more in the middle. There were two big bruises there, one each side, and some marks on the right buttock where the end of the paddle hit deep.

My butt was red for about 4 hours, and I also had light bruises that lasted a couple of days.

The younger man who saw me take the licks said he couldn't believe how hard I got spanked and how I didn't yell the place down. I guess I can handle it is all, but it still hurts a whole lot. Don't know about “zoning out” but I kinda “distance” myself from what is happening while the punishment is happening and count out automatically.

It was DARNED painful to sit right back down. I touched the seat and zap, my ass burned. It was like an electric iron touched my skin My ass was red still when I went to bed (about 7 hours later). The bruises lasted 4 or 5 days.

The guy with the paddle smacked me lightly a couple of times, which is normal to take aim, then hit me very hard three times, enough to force me up on my toes.

I didn't cry but I was hurting a lot when I walked. I was VERY conscious of my burning rear-end walking down the halls to change.

The guy takes a practice swing and lays it on Bam Bam Bam so you don’t have time to breath. Students in the reception part can hear when you get swats and they look to see if you cry or get upset.

It is done very seriously. The first time was in jeans and five bad swats leaving marks.

He said I should know better, and he was going to make an example of me….

He smacked my ass hard enough to almost make me fall forward, but I kept balance. He ordered me to put my fingers back on my toes before every swat, so I was stretched down which I didn’t like. After four I asked if I could have a break. He said OK, but he told me to stay bent over and to hold position and not move my hands. Both principals went out of the office and left the door open. After a few minutes they came back and shut the door, and I got the last three as hard, if not harder, than the first four, so my ass was numb.

I needed to rub my ass which was burning, but not in front of the principals.

Redness lasts up to a day, bruising up to a week.
