According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation “An estimated 160 million Americans are either obese or overweight. (“The Vast Majority”, n.d.)” In addition, George Washington University did a study on stress in America. “The percent of people who regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress is at an alarming 77%. (“Stress Statistics”, 5/18/17. )” By these statistics alone, it is clear that America has a big problem with obesity and stress. Often times these two factors can be linked together causing many life problems. It is said that something needs to be done to help decrease both of these major issues. There are many websites online that state traditional therapy isn’t for everyone and doesn’t always work. What if there was a nontraditional type of therapy that has evolved? Would you try it?
“Spanking therapy, is used as a therapeutic method for its curative effects, for example for physical stimulation, as an emotional release to break through a blockage, or to help someone stay focused on their set goals. (“Therapeutic Spanking”, n.d. )” Spanking has relieved many peoples stress levels and also helped them lose weight and develop a healthier lifestyle. Spanking gives actual consequences if the person does not follow what the disciplinarian says to do. It can also be simply therapeutic and a way to get rid of a months worth of stress in one session. While this may seem like an unorthodox way of therapy, many people swear by this approach. However, new people to the spanking life should not get therapeutic spanking confused with BDSM.
“BDSM is a variety of often erotic practices or role-playing involving bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and other related interpersonal dynamics. (“BDSM”, 4/18/18. )” On the flip side, an article on the daily star Dr. Jess O’Reilly, sexologist said, “people who receive spanking therapy can experience a clearer mind and it can be a form of motivation. (“The Surprising Reason”, 8/25/17.)” Jess goes on to say that “It also helps to relieve stress, allow the patient to engage with vulnerable feelings, experience pleasure and be disciplined by the therapist who can implement strategies to help the patient achieve their goals. (“The Surprising Reason”, 8/25/17.)” The major difference not to get the two confused is sex. BDSM is mostly about sex or is geared towards sexual pleasures rather. Spanking therapy, is not sexual at all, it is strictly a form of punishment or to relieve stress and nothing more.
Due to the misconception that Spanking Therapy is sexual related, most people are too afraid to explore this type of therapy. There are studies out there as well as people that can attest that it does in fact work. How do we bridge the gap so people aren’t confused with spanking therapy? Doing podcasts, writing these papers, visiting Miss Jennifer’s site at firstname.lastname@example.org are all ways one can rid their fears. The more those of us that know it works and know it isn’t sexual advocate, the more and more people will realize that it is only to help them become a better and healthier person. It is my hope that the more the positive effects of spank therapy are advocated; the less problems America will have with obesity and stress.
