Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Grumpy, you've captured the truth quite accurately ... other than the sound effects, that is! All of my spankings were applied, as you stated, either with a wooden spoon, while standing and held firmly by my mother (SMACK!SMACK!SMACK!) or in simular fashion with a belt from my father (WHACK!!!WHACK!!!WHACK!!!) while I vocalized something like "YEAAOOWWOOAAAYYAAOOOWWWAAAOOOOWWWWAAAA!!!!"
“pow-pow-pow followed by ow-ow-ow” sounds more like the neighbor boys and I playing Army, LOL!
And I can't recall witnessing ANY spankings of the over knee variety, other than (as you also correctly surmised) birthday spankings. Which were often gleefully administered by one specific grade school teacher. She even had her husband make a prank paddle that made a loud WHACK! with very little effort. The kids all had great fun laughing at the expense of the "birthday spankee."
