Brave New World--what's with all the self-spanking? Message Board
At the end of Brave New World the savage goes around spanking himself. What's more, he let's other people film it so they can watch it in theaters and laugh at him. I can understand him not wanting to be a brainwashed zombie, but was the best solution really to spank himself on the butt?

It's been a while since I read this, but 1) he flogs himself on the back with a whip, not on his bottom. 2)He doesn't 'let' anyone film him; it's done secretly. 3) These are not 'comedy classics', they're 'feelies' ... films with a tactile sensation track like we have sound tracks. 4) His self-floggings are like the proverbial cold shower, meant to stamp out sinful thoughts.
