Bless the Beasts and Children

From Spanking Art

Bless the Beasts and Children is a movie from 1971, directed by Stanley Kramer. It is a film adaption of the novel of the same name from 1970 by Glendon Swarthout.

Synopsis[edit]

Spoiler warning


The film tells the story of six emotionally disturbed boys away at summer camp who unite to stop a buffalo hunt. The group is ostracized by the other boys at the camp, and form a bond based, in part, on this broader social isolation. After being taken on a field trip to see a herd of bison selected for culling by local hunters, the boys resolve to sneak away from the camp and set the penned bison free.

The film is presented partially out of sequence; the primary narrative of freeing the bison is interspersed with flashback scenes showing the boys' troubled lives both at the camp, and at their homes.

The spanking scene[edit]

The summer camp is organized in several houses. The houses are made to compete against another, and each house gets a trophy, which is the mounted head of a wild animal. Only the last group gets a chamber pot instead to shame them. There is a camp rule however that allows the teams to steal another house's trophy so long as they are not caught in the act.

The house of the film's protagonists is the one that got the chamber pot. At night while everyone's asleep the boys (wearing nothing but their briefs, which seems to be the usual nightwear in the camp) attempt to steal another house's buffalo head, but by mishap the house is wakened and the group is caught as they try to flee. The next morning we see them, still naked except for their briefs, in a line bending over while two other boys paddle them (m/m spanking, or more correctly, mm/mmmmmm). The film scene shows three spanks for each of the boys. As they turn around, we see them in deep pain, so the actual number of spanks is likely to have been more.

Their punishment is not over however: the other boys collect their urine in the chamber pot, make everyone say "Church on fire", and then splash the liquid over the boys's front and faces.
