Sitting can also be expressed in passive as to be seated. An invitation to sit is often expressed as take a seat; as a command it is normally sit down.
Sitting and punishment
Sitting is involved in a number of spanking positions, usually the spanker being the one who is sitting. The best known of these is probably the over-the-knee position. Sitting can also be involved in other punishments, such as time-outs.
Sometimes a spankee is made to sit on their sore bottom after a spanking, for example in school spanking scenarios, at home for doing their homework sitting on a desk, or on a time-out stool. Sometimes (mainly in fiction) this extra punishment is intensified by making them sit bare-bottomed, possibly on a special surface that is designed to add to their bottom pains.
