Crying (verb) is shedding tears because of grief, sorrow or pain. It is usually accompanied by characteristic sounds such as sobbing, whining, sniveling, bawling or wailing. Weeping is synonymous with crying.
In many cultures, crying is associated with babies and children. Also, in many societies, boys are expected not to cry as easily as girls. This is reflected in sayings such as "boys don't cry" or "big girls don't cry". However many people also find that tears can be positive and can help to cleanse the soul. Some modern therapy movements such as Re-evaluation Counseling believe that crying is beneficial to health and mental wellbeing, and positively encourage it.
 Crying and spanking
In consensual spanking, the spankee may start crying from an extended spanking experience. The partners may decide that the spankee needs a "good cry". Upon agreement, the spanker will deliver a spanking intended to bring first, tears to the bottom's eyes, and then unrestrained crying. When crying is a regular part of their ritual, the agreement may be silent. Some devotees enter into a spanking session seeking crying or weeping. At times, the spankee themselves may commence crying knowing what is coming to him/her. The spanker may even order the spankee to start crying or poutting at a certain point in the process.
Crying occurs differently for different people. Males are less prone to crying than females. Thus, a more forceful and longer spanking is needed to induce male crying. Regular partners understand this and a woman may deliver a spanking designed to reduce a male to tears. It is important for the spanker to realize that the crying is not from pain. Crying is the natural desired out come of an erotic spanking.
 Spanking videos
Spanking videos often emphasize crying to make the punishment scenes seem more intense. And, if a spankee performer happens to burst into tears, it is usually captured on film with extensive close-up shots. Sometimes models are deliberately made up with cheap eyeliner that easily runs to show the effects of crying.
There is even a small subgenre of reality-based "real tears" videos that feature authentic crying scenes. For example, in Tears (from RealSpankings.com) the camera stays mainly on the spankee's face. Mood Pictures has a two-volume Crying Eyes video series, and Strictly Spanking Videos emphasizes its "real spankings, real tears" content.
