I found this interesting article, Whipping therapy cures depression and suicide crises, when doing some Google searches on my favorite topic.
As a person who has exposed his back to the lash on many occasions, some of them on film, I can attest to the calming effects of a good flogging. Because of this, I have to applaud this inspired study and the courage of the doctors that decided to test it as an application to cure addiction and prevent suicide.
While the article describes the floggings as taking place on the buttocks, from experience I can tell you that a man who exposes his back feels more like a man when he walks away from a whipping, with a renewed balance.
What are your thoughts on this?
