The touching-toes position is a variant of the bent-over position in which the spankee stands free and bends over until the tips of his or her finger are touching his or her toes. It is very similar to the grabbing-ankles position. One difference is that in the grabbing-ankles-position the feet may be together or apart, whereas in the touching-toes position the feet are usually together.
The touching-toes position was very popular in the U.K. and in parts of the British Empire for canings such as the classic "six of the best". The usual command to assume this position was "Bend over and touch your toes" or just "Touch your toes."
