Spanking In The New York Times


You’ve got to love the way the New York Times steps daintily around the topic of domestic discipline spanking in this article that’s notionally about the challenges of costuming for a theatrical production in which the actors get spanked (over their clothes, naturally) several times per show for eight shows a week:

“Permission,” an MCC Theater production, is about two couples experimenting with Christian Domestic Discipline, a practice in which husbands chastise their wives with timeouts, confiscation of privileges and corporal punishment, chiefly spanking.

Lots and lots of spanking. “It’s religious,” a character explains to a disbelieving friend. “It’s for Jesus.” The play, which explores the power dynamics behind the walloping, expresses doubts.

As for the costuming challenge:

“There are all these push-up butts on the Internet now.”

But once she had ordered the pads and panties, she had to find the ones that effectively diffused the force of the blow yet made for the best smacking sound.

Ms. Young has a policy: With any clothing “that’s sort of weird or not normal, I try it out before I put it on an actor — hygienically.”

Wearing her skirt over the padded underwear, she tried to spank herself. It didn’t really work. So she said to her associate, the designer David Hyman, “We might be crossing some sort of professional line, but will you spank me right now?”

He did.

    The important thing about Christian Domestic Discipline is that nobody is supposed to enjoy it and it’s certainly not supposed to be associated with sex. It’s in the “This hurts me more than you” tradition.

    Well, that’s what they (some of them) tell themselves and the world, anyway.
