Spankings, coupled with deep sobbing, are cathartic and healing. The question is, how do we get there? The problem is, that adult spanking, as opposed to childhood punishment, is intertwined with sexual feelings and sensuality. Spanking interactions are about intimacy and fun. So why in the world would adult spanking fetishists want to cry while being spanked? Why would they want to taint this sexual arousal? The answer is simple, and not so simple. Spanking is a complex and emotionally laden fetish. On the surface, adult spanking is about getting turned on. However, on a deeper level the adult spanking fetish sometimes heals wounds or trauma from childhood. Jacqueline Omerta a licensed Marriage Family Therapist and adult spanking fetishist talks about the deep, emotional relief attained when real crying accompanies spanking. Once tears are shed, the spankee experiences a sense of relief that leads to life-altering change. Ms. Omerta illustrates her point by spanking a woman who connects to her pain, breaks down, and sobs audibly throughout her punishment. Jacqueline and Cynthia have a lively discussion before and after this memorable spanking. Adult spanking fetishists will gain insight and validation from hearing an expert's view on adult spanking. Also great for spouses, therapists and life coaches who work with adult spanking fetishists.
