Is it ok to spank my 16 year old son for the first time?

Hi,
As of late my 16 year old son who is otherwise a good boy has been acting smart, talking back a lot and simply not obeying household rules such as fooling around on the internet but pretending to study when I'm around. I'm normally very lenient but this is becoming a habit for him. I've tried telling him nicely countless times, taking away his games and phone, threatening him and even lost my temper and hit him a few times but no matter what he seems to forget by the next day. However, I know he is always extremely embarrassed being seen in any state of undress by me and even a touch on the bum or talk about his body from me makes him very uncomfortable. This is why I think a naked spanking by hand maybe over the knee might make him learn his lesson as he is more sensitive to embarrassment than anything else however I don't want to publicly humiliate him. However, he's only been naked in front of me a few times since he was seven and although I'm sure this will be very effective in correcting his behavior I'm not sure if it's completely appropriate. Please let me know if you think I'd be right to do this.

Hi, Lanthe! Whether you realize it or not, your son’s behavior is increasingly common and you’re situation reminds me of my nephew. You might find this book, Have a New Kid by Friday by Dr. Kevin Leman very interesting. It must be available through any of the online stores. I hope you will find a solution for this soon. Hugs!
