A spanking postcard is a postcard with spanking art on it - usually a spanking drawing (realistic, cartoon or caricature) or a spanking photo. Starting in the late-19th Century, a number of the notorious "French postcards" of the era depicted erotic spanking, birching, whipping and caning of women, usually in a domestic or classroom setting.
Spanking postcards range from political satire and humor to erotic postcards. Humorous spanking postcards very often have a caption that is a pun such as "I'm Getting a Fine Tanning Here", it can be understood in the "normal" sense but also in a "spanking" sense. German Happy New Year postcards in the early 20th century often featured humorous spanking cartoons.
