New Christian Trend Sweeping America: Husbands Spanking & Punishing Wives
A new trend among married couples is sweeping the nation.
Many American wives are now letting their husbands keep them “in line” through physical punishment such as spanking. How titillating!
The trend is called Christian Domestic Discipline (CDD). Most of what is known about the practice is on a website published by Clint and Chelsea, a husband and wife CDD duo.
The website says of CDD, “It is an arrangement between two adults who share the belief that the husband is the head of the household and with that position comes the right to enforce his authority.”
The pair also wrote a 50-page packet, explaining the practice called Beginning Domestic Discipline. The packet says CDD is a “practice between two consenting life partners in which the head of household (HoH) takes the necessary measures to achieve a healthy relationship dynamic.”
18 pages of the packet is dedicated just to spanking and how to properly spank the wife. Clint and Chelsea also talk about how “awkward” it can be during the “first spanking.” Various tools to administer spanking, position ideas for the wife, and clothing suggestions are also discussed in these pages.
But wait, there’s more! Clint and Chelsea also promote advocate lecturing, removing privileges, corner and bedroom time. Basically, the husband “punishes” the woman as he would a child.
For some CDD enthusiasts, the punishment isn’t sexual at all. One woman who practices CDD with her husband says it is, in fact, very non-sexual for her. She said, “The pure CDD people don’t go there. A lot of folks think of Fifty Shades of Grey – but this is not that.”
CDD does not sit well with some people — in fact, some have even called it domestic abuse. Clint and Chelsea make a point to stress that CDD should only be practiced by consenting adults, and that the husband (HoH) should never “punish” the wife while he’s angry.
The packet says, “If the HoH becomes angry, they must do whatever it takes to get themselves back to a calm, reasonable, rational, level-headed, and collected state before making any decision or carrying out any punishment.”
Ground breaking research, if I do say so myself…
Some women have reported violence and abuse as a result of CDD. Michelle, a woman who wrote a popular CDD blog, said, “I wanted the spankings to stop and my husband told me it was either DD and marriage or divorce. I chose divorce. I couldn’t handle the pain of spankings anymore, emotionally or physically.”
Writer Laura Rubino decided to research CDD. She was surprised that despite trolling the internet, she found relatively few horror stories.
“Most of the women who write about their CDD experiences online are not complaining. Many of them report feeling extremely calm and relaxed after being disciplined, and believe it is an expression of their husband caring about them and their marriage, enough to help them modify their behavior,” she said.
Still, the practice is opposed by many for various reasons.
Jim Alsdurf, a psychologist who studies Christian homes, said, “No fool in his right mind would buy this as a legitimate way to have a relationship. A relationship that infantilizes a woman is one that clearly draws a more pathological group of people.”
Conservative Christian radio host Bryan Fisher agrees. He called CDD “horrifying,” bizarre,” “unbiblical,” and “un-Christian.”
He said, “God in the New Testament clearly asks wives to arrange themselves under the leadership of their husbands (in Greek, the word ‘submit’ means ‘to arrange under.’) But there is no place where husbands are instructed to make their wives do it or punish them if they don’t.”
As for me, I will be sending a gift basket to Clint and Chelsea’s kids. Those poor rugrats have probably been scarred by sights and sounds that I could only read about in mommy porn.
What are your thoughts? Ladies: Do you like a good rump-spanking from your man every now and again?
