Spankings generally fall into two categories, disciplinary and erotic. Disciplinary spankings are the result of untoward behavior such as smoking in public, backtalking, use of unladylike language, failure to prepare meals properly or on schedule, drunkeness, excessive or unapproved use of credit cards, traffic tickets, having female friends over to the house while sporting events are on TV, talking on the phone too long, flirting with other men at parties, wearing pants or pantyhose, failure to swallow, not keeping sufficient quantities of cold beer of the correct type in the refrigerator, gaining weight and other generally unacceptable female behavior patterns.
Erotic spankings generally occur as the result a desire on the part of the man to warm up the woman as part of foreplay. These are generally administered over the knee on a less formal basis. Typically these are administered with the hand or smaller implement - use of a strap or large paddle is awkward in the over-the-knee position. Birthday spankings should fall into the erotic category.
What is this $200 credit card charge! Apparently one spanking is not sufficient to impress upon you the need to stay on budget. You are going to get a spanking with my paddle every night for the next week!
Spanking: The actions of a parent, a babysitter, or a caregiver, repetitively striking or paddling a child, baby, or toddler, on the bottom with their open hand.
"Ok, you were told once already, and now I'm going to give you a spanking"!
"Get inside right this minute! You know better than to do that! Your getting a spanking"!
