2021 marks the 700rth anniversary of the death of Dante ( AKA Durante di Alighiero degli Alighier – and if you think that I had to copy and paste that name, you would be right) who is most famous for his extended poem The Divine Comedy. In this work Dante is given guided tours of hell, purgatory and paradise. The most interesting of these three is the first part, usually known as Dante’s Inferno, where he is guided through the nine levels of hell, with different levels of punishment for the sinners cast down there based on the sin that they have committed. I thought that it might be fun to imagine what Dante might have witnessed if he had been given a tour of The Spanking Inferno
Level One – Of Spanking By The Hand
Level Two – Hairbrush Hell
Level Three – Fiery Flogger Flagellation
Level Four – Slippers for Sinners
Level Five – The Belt From Beelzebub
Level Six – The Torture Of The Tawse
Level Seven – For The Countlessly Caned
Level Eight – The Punitively Paddled
And Level Nine – The Brutally Birched Level
The worse punishment level, reserved for those that have committed the most heinous of sins. Such as eating crunchy snacks in the cinema, or stealing my favourite parking space.
Or are there any alternative levels that you would like to show Dante?
