Shorts are a garment worn by both men and women over their pelvic area and the upper part of the upper legs or more, but not the entire length of the leg.

They are called "shorts" because they are a shortened version of trousers (as they are called in British English) or pants (in American English) which cover the entire leg.

Shorts in spanking

In the past, shorts were mainly worn by boys and rarely by adult men, girls and women. In many regions (such as South and Southeast Asia) this is the case to the present day. In many places, shorts are also part of boy's school uniforms. In parts of Europe, until approximately the 1960s, it was common for preteen boys to be wearing shorts every day, even in winter. Wearing trousers was permitted to older boys and men only. Boys "advanced" from shorts to trousers around age 12 to 14.

This background explains why shorts are often associated with "little boy's garments", and spankees in boy spanking art and literature are often depicted or described wearing shorts to emphasize their youth and boy's status.
