Needs Help (New Name Crowner Jan 18): Spank The Cutie get usage counts

Second is Comedic Spanking, may be adult Fanservice, but is mainly intended to be funny.
Third is a form of Unfair Punishment, and is what I thought this trope was intended to be. If we don't already have such a trope, then this trope should be renamed to that. And finally, I see a lot of people saying that examples involving children should not be allowed. While I can agree that any such usage intended as Fanservice heads too far into Squick (which means there should be no underage examples on Kinky Spanking and only non-Fanservice-ey underage examples on Comedic Spanking), underage examples should definitely be allowed on Unfair Punishment. (It won't be YMMV if examples are restricted to those where the punishment is obviously depicted as unfair in the work, or the audience is obviously supposed to see the punishment as unfair). I have two reasons for saying we should allow some underage examples: The first is that we'll be unfairly excluding historical examples, including some of the most famous such as those in Shirley Temple films. Second, it feels to me like some people, including tropers, want to try to rewrite history and pretend that children were never unfairly spanked or subjected to other forms of corporal punishment, and I feel that TV Tropes should not be in the business of censoring history. TV Tropes should not try to sugar-coat history by trying to hide the sins of the past, so examples of works where The Woobie is unfairly punished should have a place. Just my opinion. Feel free to disagree, but please read and think first. If tropers agree with me, I'll volunteer to open an Unfair Punishment YKTTW and nurse it to launch.

- Secretary had Lee Holloway's boss, Mr. Grey, originally spanking Lee for typos. They later develop a BDSM relationship.
- In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Zoot and all the other maidens of Castle Anthrax beg Galahad to spank them, trying to invoke the trope, but nope, it's too perilous.
- The Killer Inside Me. It begins when the polite, seemingly normal Lou Ford is sent to encourage local prostitute Joyce Lakeland (played by Jessica Alba) to leave town. The confrontation leads to him beating her with a belt, and their romance begins. However, the beating is hard and this film is unflinchingly violent and gets even more disturbing.
- Project Moonbase (a 1953 film that Robert A. Heinlein co-wrote) had the bratty female astronaut (a colonel no less!) being threatened with spanking by her superior officer. It doesn't help that she's wearing tight shorts over a great ass.
