* Seyonne in Creator/CarolBerg's Literature/RaiKirah series gets this a few times, mostly as part of his [[MadeASlave time in slavery]]. He also has scars on his back from previous occasions.

* In the fake movie trailer for ''Thuggery On The High Seas'' from Creator/CheechAndChong's "Pedro And Man At The Drive-In" sketch from the ''Los Cochinos'' album, one of the pirates gets flogged for sassing the ship's captain, which starts off sounding painful but then his reaction turns to ecstatic joy with each whip lash he receives.

* There is a joke involving three men who are each sentenced to receive 100 lashes with a whip as punishment. They are also each granted a single request. The first man requests to have a pillow strapped to his back. After 20 lashes, the pillow is destroyed, so the man only receives 80 lashes. The second man saw what happened to the other guy, so he asks for ''two'' pillows strapped to his back. After 20 lashes, the first pillow is destroyed, and the second is destroyed after another 20, so the man only receives 60 lashes. The third man saw what happened to the other two and thinks for a long time about his request... [[BulletproofHumanShield then asks to have one of the other two men strapped to his back]].

*** The traditional naval cat o'nine tails [[RealityIsUnrealistic was not as harsh as it may appear]], being made out of rope. This inflicted painful superficial wounds, but rarely cut into the flesh; the sailor could recover quickly and do hard labor on the vessel. Hard leather lashes used on slaves, serfs or convicts [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_(slave)#/media/File:Gordon,_scourged_back,_NPG,_1863.jpg were designed for maximum damage]], which crippled and often killed the victim.

* "Running the Gauntlet", where the punished has to walk between two rows of his fellows as they strike him with knotted lengths of rope. To make sure the punished keeps moving, there is a man behind him sticking a sword into his back and, to prevent him from going too quickly, there is another in front of him sticking a sword into his belly.

* In 1994, an American tourist named Michael Fay was arrested for theft and vandalism in UsefulNotes/{{Singapore}}, and wound up getting caned. In Singapore, caning is done on the bare buttocks with a soaked half-inch thick rattan rod. The maximum number of strokes is 24, quite a high number considering a single stroke is usually enough to make a fully-grown man (women may not be canned) sleep on his stomach for an entire week and anything more than 10 is likely to result in permanent damage and walking problems.

* In 1994, Caning continues to be used as a legal form of punishment in UsefulNotes/{{Singapore}}, with judges often handing out a number of strokes ''in addition'' to a man's jail sentence (woman aren't caned, but some juveniles are) should they deem it necessary. Canings are delivered to bare buttocks with a half-inch thick rattan rod that is soaked in water to avoid splinters. Guards who administer canings are specially selected for their physical strength and they are trained strike the recipients' buttocks in a way that will inflict as much pain as possible and substitutes are always on standby because every stroke is legally required to be delivered at full strength. Doctors will monitor the the recipients because some will try and fake health problems to avoid canings. A single stroke is more than enough to break the skin and draw blood and permanent scarring is almost inevitable. The pain is so severe that recipients can't walk or sit properly and have to sleep on their stomachs for months. ''And'', if that wasn't enough, many men experience problems with bowel movements for years afterwards, if not permanently.

an American tourist named Michael Fay tourist, caused international headlines and a diplomatic incident when, in 1994, he was arrested for theft and vandalism in UsefulNotes/{{Singapore}}, UsefulNotes/{{Singapore}}. President UsefulNotes/BillClinton personally tried to intervene on his behalf but the Singaporean government was having none of it and wound up getting caned. In Singapore, caning is done on the bare buttocks with a soaked half-inch thick rattan rod. The maximum number of only concession they made was to commute Fay's sentence from six strokes is 24, quite a high number considering a single stroke is usually enough to make a fully-grown man (women may not be canned) sleep on his stomach four. The incident provided fodder for an entire week and anything more than 10 is likely to result in permanent damage and walking problems.''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E16BartVsAustralia".

* Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/StarshipTroopers'' has Johnny Rico get flogged for acting recklessly during a Mobile Infantry training exercise. It is also mentioned, in terms of an AuthorTract, that in his society being "flogged in the public square" is considered a valid and effective punishment for minor crimes. (Major ones are punished by death). It should be noted that punitive floggings in this novel are closely monitored by a doctor to ensure that no permanent damage is done, and the punishment is followed immediately by treatment. It does not even leave scars.
