Childhood Spanking Leads To Risky Sex

...for the kids that is. Gayla at Super Nanny Rules had a post that caught my eye: Childhood Spanking Leads to Sexual Promiscuity.

Analysis of four spanking-related studies found that children who were spanked were more likely to engage in risky and possibly masochistic sexual practices.
From Fox News:

An analysis of four studies by Murray Straus, co-director of the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire-Durham, found that children who suffer physical punishment in the form of spanking, hitting or slapping are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior as adults, it is reported by USA Today.

The study, presented Thursday to the American Psychological Association, suggests that spanked children also are more likely to be "physically or verbally coercing" to a sexual partner and engage in masochistic sex, including arousal by spanking, later in life.

Yet another reason to think twice before spanking your kid.
