The Two Hundredth and Sixty Second of One Thousand and One Nights – by Amalaric

Among other things, judicial flogging is quite strenuous- for the whip master to be sure, but far more so for the naked male subjected to the lash.

  1. As true an observation as I’ve ever read, o mighty Amalaric. And you know, the reality is, we could dispense with 90% of prison sentences and related costs if lesser crimes by men were punished with simple public naked display for, say, eight hours, and more serious ones were punished with duly publicized public lashings followed by more extended public naked displays, no?

  2. In both cases, of course, because it’s as much a humiliation- as a pain-based sentence, observers would be encouraged not only to show up but to tease and taunt, whether subtly or overtly, during both the whipping and the simple spread eagle display periods, and it would be obligatory for the em-bare-assed stud not to reply in anger or cursing. In fact, if any onlookers complained to authorities that he had been short of cheerful in accepting the deserved whipping, naked display and taunts, it could result in an extended sentence and further kisses from the lash.
