Young teacher Amelia Jane Rutherford is about to start work in a new school. The job is exciting, but involves a task she's never done before: administering corporal punishment to naughty students. Luckily, her good friend Caroline Grey is used to slippering pupils who misbehave, and she's willing to show Amelia the basics.
Testing the slipper by whacking it on her hand, Amelia starts to appreciate how much it hurts, But she's anxious that she might do it too hard or too soft, and she shyly asks her friend for help.
Soon Amelia is bent over the bed, taking six hard smacks with the slipper. As she experiences the pain and embarrassment of a slippering first hand, she starts to understand what it's all about. But she still has concerns: what if the student is a repeat offender? What if they won't stop misbehaving? Caroline obliges with the details, telling Amelia that in such cases, punishment is usually given on the bare.
Gradually, Amelia starts to appreciate the embarrassment and humiliation of having to bend over and lower your knickers for corporal punishment. Her integrity compels her to learn what it feels like before dishing it out, and she insists on the full experience: from harder swats over her sheer knickers, to a final flurry directly on her bare bottom.
