Getting a good spanking does help prepare one for the trials of life. Personally I have found it most useful for focusing the mind when major life decisions have to be made. But that is a positive result that occurs after the spanking and the following crash has happened. Whilst the actual spanking is taking place it becomes an entity in itself and during that time it is like nothing ever existed before the spanking and nothing that happens after the spanking matters. This weeks Thought reflects this.
Spanking is not preparation for life
Spanking is life itself
