'''Consensual spanking''' is [[spanking]] that takes place with the full and free [[consent]] of all involved parties, in particular both the [[spanker]] and the [[spankee]].
Consensual spanking includes the categories
[[erotic spanking]], [[fun spanking]], and [[sensation play]].
It is contrasted to all forms of [[nonconsensual]] spanking, including
[[school corporal punishment]], [[military corporal punishment]], [[judicial corporal punishment]], [[prison corporal punishment]] and [[domestic violence]].
[[Disciplinary spanking]] can in some cases be consensual (e.g. in [[domestic discipline]]) but will usually be
nonconsensual. The [[spanking of children]] for [[punishment]] is usually nonconsensual.
