Spanking art websites are typically either only on child spanking art or on adult spanking art; seldom on both. See schisms within the spanko community for more on this. In contrast to child spanking art, adult spanking art is often erotic. There are even some pornographic works; this is possible because works of adult pornography are legally permitted, provided that they are not accessible to minors.
In addition to erotic spanking, adult spanking art sometimes features fictional disciplinary spanking, although in real life adults get rarely spanked for discipline. Artistic works of this kind employ, for example, the genre of historic art (e.g. a master spanking an adult servant or slave, as it was not uncommon in past centuries).
