The spanking line, also sometimes called spanking train or spanking machine (in analogy to the concept of a mechanic spanking machine) is a spanking game based on the running the gauntlet principle. A group of players stands in a line with their legs apart. Another player has to crawl through that "tunnel" as fast as possible while the standing players try to land spanks on his or her bottom.
This game is sometimes played on birthday parties as a variant of birthday spanking, where it is the birthday celebrant who has to crawl through the legs of their friends.
The game can also be played such that everyone gets to go through the "tunnel": the player who crawled through can join the line at the rear standing with spread legs while the person who is now in front is the next to crawl.
