Delinquent

From Spanking Art

A delinquent (from Latin delinquere, to fail in duty) is a person who has violated some rule, law or requirement and is therefore sentenced to be punished. The term delinquent can be used in general to mean "person to be punished" (i.e. the "punishee") in a formal sense. It is more general and less accusive than "criminal", and often used for minor crimes, e.g., a "juvenile delinquent".

A delinquent who accepts his or her punishment readily (due to feelings of remorse) is called a penitent, a term most often used in religious institutions.

Juvenile delinquency and spanking[edit]

When the punishment calls for a spanking, the delinquent – ranging in age from child to young adult – is the spankee.

Petty theft, vandalism, and truancy or "playing hookey" (skipping school) are common forms of juvenile delinquency that have traditionally led to a spanking punishment – at home and sometimes at school.

This scenario has been portrayed in many novels and films set in the past and continues (almost exclusively) in present-day fetish spanking videos with a domestic setting or a school detention narrative (see list below).
