Subject: The ritual of "taking them down"

Curious as to folks' thoughts about the ritual(s) surrounding the taking down of pants and underwear. Specifically, whether 'tis better to have the naughty child/teen bare his or her own behind, or to have mom or dad do it for them? For the most part, the tradition I grew up with favored the former. I can still remember the hollow feeling in the pit of my stomach when Mom would announce her decision that the "point of no return" had been reached: "Pull. Your pants. DOWN!" Gulp. Obviously, the taking down of underpants, at least for the purposes of a spanking, is a humbling experience either way and a major reason that the punishment is so potent: unlike grounding or the taking away of privileges, which a world-weary teen can pretty easily shrug off, the "embarrassment factor" of getting a bare bottom *spanking* only *increases* with each year that passes, as so much sharper becomes the "sting" of still being subject to what is, on its face, so clearly a "child's punishment." I think the reasoning behind the approach taken by my mom was rooted in the notion that, having earned it, the child should have to *submit* to the spanking, that the taking down of one's owns underpants is his clear physical acknowledgement that he is *not* as powerful and independent as he thought. I think the argument on the other side is that the act of being physically *undressed* by a parent is more inherently humbling for the child, as it mentally transports him back to the time when he was small and helpless. What are y'all's opinions?
