You are a child of the 1920's, the eldest of six. Your strict father demanded instant obedience and tolerated no back talk. Consequently not many days went by without a chair being pulled out from under the table prior to one or more little bare bottoms writhing round across his lap under the impact of his heavy hand. You, being the eldest, were expected to set an example to and police the younger ones and thus were often first in the line of fire. By the time you were ten the dreaded strap; a length of thick leather, short enough to be used otk and dedicated to one purpose only had been brought into play and it always left your bottom marked for several days afterwards. It was a draconian regime and even your two sisters weren't exempt from its ministrations.
When your son Angelo was born you resolved never to be so dogmatic and intolerant as your father. Happily Angelo turned out to be an easy going and generally well behaved kid - not a saint but when he needed correction a verbal chastisement sometimes backed up with a token sanction always brought positive results. Consequently, apart from an occasional pre-emptive swat to the seat of his pants when he was small, Angelo has survived for fourteen years without ever being spanked.
There was one occasion when he was about nine you had to remonstrate with him while on a visit to your parents and before you left your father presented you with the old strap saying "Here, you'll be needing this soon" Out of politeness you accepted it and when you got home you lashed the chair seat a few times telling Angelo "You'd better be a good boy now if you don't want to feel this across your bare bottom like I got it." Then you hung it on a hook at the back of the cupboard under the stairs and forgot about it.
Angelo's hobby is photography and he's talented. Colour photography is still a professional preserve but when he saved up to buy himself a decent second hand camera you supported him, setting him up with an enlarger and little darkroom where he could develop and print his films.
Today though you have problem. Your prudish wife was tidying his drawers as she put clean clothes in and she found a sheaf of nude pictures of him hidden at the bottom of one. They were a range of back views in different postures with your dad's strap held across his buttocks and shadowy marks suggesting he had been self spanking. She had always believed you were too soft with Angelo and, incensed, she presented you with the pictures on your return from work demanding that you give him a sound thrashing and confiscate his camera.
After the evening meal she went out to see a friend and left you to deal with it.
When you confronted him about the "disgusting" pictures his mother had found he looked at the floor and blushed to the tips of his ears. "It's not like that dad .... Really."
You didn't reply, you simply waited, and eventually he started a stumbling explanation. "Dad - you always tell me off if I do something bad but most other kids in my class get belted or slippered bare off their dads and Pete's dad even has a school cane. I've had the cane at school and it really hurts but its always on my hands and when I see the marks on other kid's bottoms in the showers I wonder what that must be like. You've never ever used granddads strap, you don't even spank me and I wonder how horrible it must be to have to get across your dad's lap to get your bare bum strapped and how much it must hurt and sometimes I start to get a woody thinking about it. I've tried to do it to myself but I can't get more than a little sting. Dunno why I took the pictures though. Sorry."
He paused and swallowed hard before looking up to continue in a hoarse whisper "Da...ad! If you give me a real bare strapping now like my friends get then I'll know what its like ... and it might cure me."
You have your doubts - but you are a 1950 dad with a dilemma. Will you give in to pressure from two sides and take him across your lap to indulge his craving for a bare hiding with that strap? If so how will you go about it? Will you be sufficiently severe so to leave him marks to display in the showers?
