Getting spanked as an act of atonement is not uncommon amongst the community, whether it be voluntarily asked for by the spankee or it is enforced as part of a Disciplinary arrangement. Judging when this should happen is a difficult thing, at what point has the line been crossed? Over the Christmas period I came into the possession of a box set of the Sharpe series and when I heard this line, in one of the episodes, it did spring to mind that it would make an excellent Thought, related to the timing of a Disciplinary spanking.
I would repent
But I have not sinned enough yet
