Actress Rosario Dawson was given unusual punishments when she misbehaved as a child - her mother would lick her.
The Sin City star attempted to remain on her best behavior while growing up in New York City, because she knew her mom Isabel would reprimand her with her tongue if she misbehaved.
She tells The New York Times, "My mom licked me - that was her punishment. If I was a little uppity or if I didn’t listen or if she wanted to get my attention, she’d lick the side of my face or under my armpit.
"My mom’s a six-foot-tall amazon and she’d say, 'You came out of my vagina and I own every part of you,' and she’d lick me like I was her wee pup and she was a lioness. It was humiliating and really intense. Very primal. It’s not spanking, but it definitely works."
Please let me know if someone out there has either experienced or enacts this disciplinary approach. In the meantime, I'll stick to stickers.
And one more thing: Given the language in the quote (both verbs and nouns), I cannot wait to see what advertising pops up on the site.
