A cropping is a spanking with a crop. A cropping may be administerd with the spankee in the over-the-knee (OTK) position, or with the spankee bent over touching toes or knees, or bent over a piece of furniture. It may also be administered in the diaper position.
A cropping is considered to consist of more "sting" and less "thud", like a switching and unlike a paddling. Because of the relative thinness of a crop, the spanker must be careful not to cut the flesh or do serious damage if the crop strokes are administered with heavy force.
