Spanking in Iran[edit]

Although spanking can be considered a Western practice, it has not been uncommon in Iranian culture. Due to the natural essence of spanking, it can be found in almost all cultures, and Iran is not an exception. Hitting the buttocks with a cane or switch as disciplinary act or hitting the buttocks in sexual interaction are not unlikely to happen.

In Iranian families, discipline, including spanking, is usually administered by the father as the mother is traditionally seen as the more loving, caring and protecting member of the family.[1]

Occasionally, secretly recorded short videos of corporal punishment at schools or in sports places (like, for example, a swimming pool or gym class) that sometimes include some forms of spanking, are published on the Internet. An example is here.

Perhaps it the main origin of most Iranians' acquaintance with spanking are spanking scenes in animations and children's cartoons such as Tom and Jerry, The Swiss Family Robinson: Flone of the Mysterious Island, The Story of Perrine and Katri, Girl of the Meadows, the last three being Japanese anime series.

Iranian spanking artists[edit]

There are no contemporary Iranian spanking artists known so far. As erotic literature and pornography are against national laws in Iran, only underground spanking stories by amateurs and unprofessional writers who are actually spankophiles are written and published on Persian spanking blogs, which are especially hosted by foreign blogging services such as Google Blogger and Wordpress.
