Surely ye jest.
I got the belt when I was young. Definitely made me not want to do stupid shit anymore. I don't think I try to enforce my will via violence. In fact, I've never done so.
Yes, I jest. Although, I have gotten into quite a few fistfights in my time...nah, I'm sure its unrelated.
Believe me, I got plenty of smacks on the butt for misbehaving. They were neither overly frequent nor severe, of course. My father used to talk about how when I was a kid I would be a little bastard all day, then I'd do something that just demanded a spanking, he would oblige, and then I would behave perfectly for the rest of the day.
He started joking that he should have just woke me up at 8am and given me a smack, because then I might've behaved all day long.
