Does spanking / smacking work?

Last year at the age of 13 I asked my mother to spank me after my behaviour started to be come bad. I then received a hard one with a plastic bathbrush on my bare bottom. I received another one a few months later. At the end of each month if I get enough demerit points I will get one. Thankfully I haven't been spanked for quite a few months now. I feel that since this started my behaviour has improved no end and this is all worthwhile. I would like to know if others, both parents and children agree.
