What makes someone interested in spanking? It's a question that's been discussed and debated over and over.
- Is it a gene some people have?
- Maybe some unexplored mommy/daddy psychological issues? Maybe (like me) you were familiar with spanking, and were reintroduced to it via porn including spanking as you were entering puberty, and were hooked.
- Maybe a partner introduced you to spanking later in life.
- Maybe you were familiar with spanking as something that supposedly nice and caring parents/teachers inflicted on others and always wondered about it because you somehow survived childhood and "missed out" on the experience and so have always been fascinated by it.
Here's another graph taken from this blog that shows trends in American attitudes toward spanking. From 1986 to 2010, the percent disapproving/ strongly disapproving (green and yellow) almost doubled from 17 percent to 31 percent.
So there's a downward trend in "real" spanking of children.
