This category is itself a subcategory of Physical punishments: all corporal punishments are physical, but not all physical punishments (e.g. capital punishment or amputation) are what is meant by "corporal punishment".
Most types of corporal punishment are named after the implement or apparatus used to inflict the punishment. To avoid duplication, only one entry per type of punishment is linked here, e.g. "caning" and not "cane"; "strapping" and not "strap".
As spanking implements may be used on areas of the body other than the buttocks, they are marked for both that subcategory and this category.
