School CP in erotic spanking art
This article is not about school corporal punishment in mainstream art, but only in non-mainstream creative works.
 Art forms
Because of the long tradition of actual spankings and other corporal punishments in school settings, school spanking stories are a popular sub-genre of spanking stories; these employ school settings of various kinds (historical, contemporary, science fictional or fantastical) for spanking scenes. For example, several of Lurking Dragon's Melody series include school punishments, as do several stories by SamPast, Abel Jenkins and other authors. Also, several writers of fan fiction have inserted school spanking scenes in school settings where they are not to be found in the original, perhaps most often in reworkings of the Harry Potter setting.
 Spanking photos, videos and roleplay
Among adult spanking enthusasists, school punishment is a very frequent setting for roleplay and ageplay — so much so that a schoolgirl costume is a very common outfit at spanking parties. See also schoolie.
In this genre, we tend to find the following pairings:
- adult/child: the "realistic" school scenario where an underage pupil is punished. Featured in spanking stories, spanking novels, spanking drawings, rendered spanking art. Eroticism in this pairing is usually kept to a minimum, but nudity (bare bottom spanking) is common.
- adult/teenager: popular especially in early 20th century French spanking literature and its illustrations. Sometimes portrayed in spanking photos and spanking videos with ageplaying adult models.
- adult/adult: mostly found in photos and videos. Often sexually explicit or pornographic.
The setting for this genre is typically a classroom. Props include school desks, chairs, a blackboard, blackboard pointer, books, excercise books, and other typical "school" items. In British and German works, the cane and the birch rod are the classic school CP implements, sometimes also the strap, ruler, or plimsoll, whereas in France the martinet also plays a role. In the U.S., the paddle is the most stereotypic school CP implement.
Compared to domestic punishment, school CP is more formal, which is one reason for the genre's great popularity. Another is the increased humiliation factor because it is more embarrassing to be chastised in a classroom, possibly in the presence of other classmates, than it is to be chastised by a parent at the greater privacy of the home.
Compared to real school corporal punishment, the spankings in this genre tend to involve a lot more nudity, and generally exaggerate the punishment and especially the humiliation part. Corporal punishment is often combined with other punishments such as wearing of a dunce cap, corner time, writing lines, or detention.
