Clubs, bottoms, country girls and hairbrushes

Los Angeles Times, 1938




Question 1
There really were fifty-nine Wives of Spanking Husbands Clubs?
The hairbrush-making industry must have been smiling from cheek to cheek...
Oh, sorry! eh...ear to ear.

Question 2
On what basis were you elected as the President of the Wives of Spanking Husbands club?
Comparison of smacks received, the size of the hairbrush, how red is thy bottom...?

Question 3
The auxiliary to the club was really named "The Daughters of Spanking Parents"?
Can only imagine how thrilled and excited the daughters must have been...

Question 4
What is it with men and hairbrushes?
I have an opinion about men and hairbrushes, but think I will exercise my right not to say anything, otherwise, a hairbrush might be held against my bottom...

On the left hand side bottom of the paper is a little quote under the heading
"Remember This":
"Happiness is like the unspoilt country girl that knows nothing about the city ways..."
(I am not saying a word - not one!)

Very cute story. I have visited Sioux City with a very good friend who is a country girl from Iowa. She is always happy and very unspoiled, now I know why. Thanks Raven. Cheers.

Oh boy, do you think it could become as popular as joining you upmarket health club?

Our daughters will not be joining the junior club, tempting tho' it may be :)

Spankos needed community before the Internet was invented. Then, through denial, they could recruit teenage girls and call the whole thing wholesome.

Part of my childhood was spent in a little town. Apart from the snakes, spiders, moths the size of planes (erm...I really do NOT like moths)I can truthfully state, the rest was quite awful as well. (GRIN)

I had giggles galore last night. Had these visions of "how to join" rules.

Although I hated every moment of it, my mother dragging me off to ballet classes, tennis classes, tap dancing classes rather seems MUCH better options than dragging me off to a gathering of "Spanked Daughters".

(Erm...with my record though, I would have been able to be president, vice precident and chairman!)

I was spanked as a child/teenager. A lot. If the movie was made after I was born, I would have believed that "Rebel without a cause" was based on me. (GRIN)

But I can assure you, if my parents had to drag me off to a club for spanked daughters - erm, words such as Armageddon come to mind.

"Spare the hairbrush, spoil the wife" only a man could have come up with that slogan!

Raven, yes, the rules of the club would be fascinating but I guess eligibilty to join would be easy enough to proove!

What do you think they do in their meetings? Discuss the best way to soothe an an aching posterior, how to destroy "toys" without being caught, have Tops as guest speakers? We need more information!

Raven,
We got spanked too, but if someone had asked my parents to join a club, I'm pretty sure they'd have looked at them like they were from another planet. :)

I was very aware of spanking as a teenager, and one thing I noticed, at least around where I lived, was that boys got it more than girls. So why no "Sons of Spanking Parents"? We didn't like getting scolded and nagged any more than daughters did. We needed better understanding too. :)

Fascinating!

Still today we have clubs like this one. But now we're called 'bloggers'.

I would have changed the logo slightly "Burn the hairbrush, spoiling the wife is better!" (GRIN)

I would gather meetings included topics such as pillow making, DIY accidental fires in which hairbrushes were destroyed, how to fake symptoms being allergic to leather...okay, that would have been under my leadership though!

Invite a Top as a guest speaker? You supplying the rotten tomatoes..erm, I mean the flowers?

You should have moved closer to me then! I think at one stage of my life, I was basically spanked every day of my life! Do not ask! (GRIN)

And it is a fact, my brother got far less spankings than me! (SULK)

Raven Red said...

Miss Pink!

LOL!! And the Tops saw how well the Bottoms could run things, so they started theirs?? (GRIN)

I wondered about the spanked daughters too.

I know this is very politically incorrect to say, but speaking as a male, spanking daughters, especially someone else's daughters, is more fun than spanking sons, and I think the Spanked Daughters club must have been the invention of males, not females.

Dave Wolfe said...

There was a NATIONAL club?

Hot damn!

I like how the gal explains the difference between "beating" and "spanking!"

So, are there any ragged remnants of this club, I wonder? Probably has to form anew. Obviously I can't be a MEMBER, but I nominate Raven as New President, anyway.
