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 behaviour while growing up in New York City, because she knew her mum Isabel would reprimand her with her tongue if she was naughty.
She tells the New York Times, "My mom licked me - that was her punishment. If I was a little uppity or if I didnt listen or if she wanted to get my attention, shed lick the side of my face or under my armpit.
"My moms a six-foot-tall amazon and shed say, 'You came out of my vagina and I own every part of you,' and shed lick me like I was her wee pup and she was a lioness. It was humiliating and really intense. Very primal. Its not spanking, but it definitely works."
