Spanking in Japan

Spanking as a parenting tool, as far as we know, does not have a long and extensive history in Japanese culture as it has in western countries. However the subject has obviously fascinated and inspired Japanese artists since the beginning of the 20th century.

Japanese spanking art

Since the 1980s and 1990s, Japan has a great influence on the worldwide genre spanking art. Its most obvious influence is the Japanese comic and cartoon drawing style, manga, and its stop-motion pendant, anime.

Manga style drawing has developed into a giant phenomenon that turned thousands of manga fans into active artists: this 'amateur' art is known as fan-art (if characters of commercial series are featured) or doujinshi.

See spanking in manga and spanking in anime for mainstream works, and spanking manga and spanking anime for non-mainstream works.

A new kind of Web application for digital online drawing, which is also highly popular in Japan, oekakis, has led to a number of spanking oekakis.

Japanese spanking artists include Akanamazu, Cross Chan, Frank, Kitora, Erika Kyoukousha, Mr. Sand, Shijou Aya and Taira Kibato.
