3 Amen Fuer Den Satan - ( Italy 1971, by William Redford ) Original Title: LA VENDETTA E UN PIATTO CHE SI SERVE FREDDO. Aka "Vengeance Trail" or "Vengeance is a Dish Served Cold". A Spaghetti western. A beautiful Indian woman ( Elisabeth Eversfield ) is captured by an outlaw gang and kept on their ranch in a kind of "harem". One evening the chief commands her to sleep with one of his guests (Klaus Kinski). The gang wakes up to Kinski's cries and curses, and catches the fleeing girl in the yard. She has scratched Kinski's skin with her fingernails. The next day she gets her punishment, watched by Kinski and the others. With the arms widely spread, her wrists are tied to a wooden fence, while she is told what awaits her. Her dress is torn open. She is bull-whipped very hard from behind. Before each lash, the man swings the long, heavy whip like a lasso, giving the tail a high speed. You hear the hissing and the sharp cracks, and her moans become more and more intense. Some shots of her front, face and back at the right moments. After 8 lashes, the scene is interrupted by an arriving stranger
99 Women - A blonde prisoner is whipped towards the end of this Jess Franco film. All of the lashes are off-screen. The victim has the back of her prison dress ripped off, but we don't see very much because it is dark.
Jekyll and Hyde - A soft core porn David Freidman production. In one scene, Hyde whips a woman all over her body. Many marks appear in various places and it is a fairly long scene. This kind of scene was almost obligatory in the early days of close to graphic exploitation cinema.
Adventures of Hajji Baba, The - Has a very brief foot-whipping scene.
Affair of the Necklace, The - 2001 film starring Hilary Swank as Jeanne St. Remy de Valois. There's a scene towards the end of this film where Jeanne gets the back of her gown ripped off and is whipped. This being a big budget Hollywood production, the scene is relatively tame and we don't even get to see her back as she's being whipped.
L’Affaire du Collier de la Reine - 1946 French drama based on the same story as "Affair of the Necklace". There's a production still of a whipping scene from this film and it appears that the scene in this one is much better than in the 2001 version.

Ai No Borei - Japanese movie by Nagisa Oshima: a woman, with her lover, is suspended to a tree and beaten savagely by soldiers to reveal the killer of her husband, and where the body is; long and violent scene, but the woman is dressed.
Alla Mia Cara Mamma nel Giorno del Suo Compleanno - actress Eleonora Giorgi is spanked with a belt, and later we see good marks on her bare bottom, while her wounds are being treated.
All Women Are Bad - Tied up naked woman is whipped by shirtless man.
Amazons - The one directed by Al Bradley. Has a scene where a topless amazon is briefly whipped by a man. A few marks appear but the scene is very brief.
Amazons of Rome (aka Slaves of Carthage)- A woman is tied to a post and lashed. Unfortunately, the whipping is stopped at one lash. She then has her top pulled down to expose her nude in public, but a bunch of guards surround her to protect her modesty. We get a couple of brief glimpses of her whip-marked back. This is a big budget Italian sword and sandal epic.
Angelique and the King - ANGELIQUE ET LE ROI (Fr/Ger/It 1965 by Bernard Borderie) A monarch from the far east visiting France shows Angelique (Michele Mercier) some of his "way of ruling": as they watch a basement hall, a woman is tied to a pillar and whipped savagely on her bare back. Intense screams but only few of the lashes are onsreen and are shot from about 10 meters away. The monarch says that the woman will receive at least 100 lashes. Many of the Angleique films featured a whipping scene. There may exist an uncut print that has some more action footage.
Angelique 2, This has a scene in which some prostitutes are whipped, though Angelique who is among them is spared. There are lots of beautiful women and the scene is quite erotic although short. The verisimilitude is definitely there in this scene.
Angelique and the Sultan - ANGELIQUE UND DER SULTAN (France 1965) ANGELIQUE ET LE SULTAN An old-fashion adventure movie. Michele Mercier in a sultans harem. She is whipped in public because she offended the sultan by spitting into his face: Her arms are tied up so the feet can just touch the ground. She is half topless so the strong whip marks on her back are visible. This is a pretty long scene. She receives 13 lashes (6 on screen) with 2 camera angles (front/back). The impact of the long whip sends her swinging back an forth. Sharp cracks and loud moans/cries. Afterwards she hangs exhausted at the rope, her head fallen back. A quite good scene.
Anna and the King of Siam - Not to be confused with "The King and I", although they both tell the same story. Has a scene where a woman's lover has been whipped. She refuses to admit any wrongdoing, so she has her bra-like top removed and is given one stroke before Anna stops the whipping.
Antonia & Jane (1991) - Woman plays a sex game with her lover, answer the question right or be whipped. Beats Chutes and Ladders any day.
Art of Dying, The- has a brief scene in which a prostitute is being whipped by a client.
Autumn Born- Murdererd Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten gets whipped several times in this film. 1. while handcuffed to a bed she is whacked with a stick on her back and bottom. 2. has the soles of her feet whipped. 3. whipped on her back while bent over on the ground topless. 4. Whipped on her ass while wearing a corset. Overall, the scenes are pretty good and this is definitely worth a look. She was an exceptionally beautiful woman by any standard.
Bad Girls - Madelaine Stowe is whipped by the bad guy..you only see the lash curling around her neck, but later she has the wounds tended to.. pretty realistic. There is also a shot where the lovely Ms. Stowe is bathing with the other girls. She gets out of the water and we can see welts on her back from a previous lashing.
Bad Girls - (1981) XXX Starring a very young Michelle Bauer in her X-rated days , under the name Pia Snow. Kind of a lame whipping scene , but what a body she has.
Bamboo House of Dolls - At the beginning of this Shaw brothers prison flick, all of the female concentration camp inmates are commanded to whip another Asian inmate to death. It doesn't take long, though, as she dies under the lashes of the second whipper, who then commits suicide. Quite gruesome as Chinese movies of this genre tend to be but the beginning of the scene where the victim is stripped is very nice.
Barbarians, The - Virginia Bryant is tortured by Michael Berryman in order to find out where the "magic ruby" is. He whips her back with a cat o' nine tails. Her hair is covering most of her bare back, but her acting is rather realistic. Later, we see some other girls tending to the whip marks on her back.

Barbed Wire Dolls - Jess Franco prison flick has a scene toward the end where a naked woman is tied face down and cropped lightly on her ass. It's supposed to be a torture scene, but it's kind of a yawn and pretty unrealistic. There are a few good scenes of Franco's wife, Lina Romay, tied face down to a metal wire frame and given electric shock treatment. I mention those because they are the only good scenes in the film.
Bare Behind Bars - aka Prison of the Dead.This prison flick lives up to its name,delivering a ton of naked chicks. However, the violence (including two whipping scenes) is really weak.
Bastard Out Of Carolina - A Showtime original movie about the physical and sexual abuse of an 11 year old girl (Jena Malone). She's whipped with a belt several times in the course of the movie. You hear some of them and you see one of them. She's shown from the front and she stands holding onto the bathroom sink while she's whipped. Later, when she gets drunk at a party and a relative tries to help her use the bathroom, you see that the backs of her thighs are welted black and blue. A very good, but disturbing movie.
Beastmaster - We do not see a whipping here, but Marc Singer pulls Tanya Roberts' blouse down by her shoulder, sees her whip marks and says "They whip you like a beast"
Belle De Jour - In the opening scene of this film, Catherine Deneuve is taken out into the woods with her husband. He orders two other men to tie her to a tree, strip her to the waist, and whip her on the back. A good, but very brief scene that turns out to be taking place in Deneuve's mind.
Beloved - a nude black slave is tied to ground and bullwhipped very savagely, we see only her face reactions for one lash but the scene is one of most "strong" we ever seen; later in two scenes we see her bare back covered with heavy scars. Oprah Winfrey stars.
Big Bust Out, The - A topless (and later bottomless) young black woman is whipped on her back by a sadistic dwarf with what looks like a wet cloth. Must be some cloth, as she has big bloody red marks all over her back. This is a fairly long scene and the camera dwells on her body for quite some time.
Big Doll House, The - Pat Woodell gets whipped with a wet towel by a prison guard while chained high up in the air. Ms. Woodell is topless, but her hair covers her breasts. Short scene but worth a look.
Big Snatch, The - Lame, cheap David Friedman production has a scene where a group of girls are forced to spank another girl's bare bottom with a small piece of garden hose. Poorly acted and a bad job all around.

Bitter Rice - The film is about "rice-girls" who work the rice fields in the Po valley in Northern Italy. Among them is sexpot Sylvanna who constantly taunts and sexually teases the men in the valley. The women are all jealous of her and the men all want her. She finally goes too far with victoro Gasmann. After arranging a tryst with him, she just plays games and as he advances toward her she picks up a switch from a pile and pushes him away with the tip. Tiring of this he takes the switch away from her and begins to whip her with it. Unfortunately there is no baring of Miss Mangano's skin, and she is not tied as she is whipped nor is the swishing of the switch very audible. The redeemable aspect of this film is in the primal cries of pain and facial expressions of the victim as she backs away to escape the lashes. Likewise, the man's expressions become pure lust as he administers her comeupance. The scene fades and a rape is implied. The rest of the film is irrelevant except Miss Mangano straightens out and becomes his loyal mistress after the whipping. 14 or 15 lashes in all.
Black Narcissus - A clothed Indian girl is whipped by an old toothless hag with a tree branch.
Blind Cat - Don't know what the real Japanese title of this movie is. It appears to be one of the many direct-to-video Japanese adult crime thrillers. Contains a scene where a woman is tied up and beaten with a stick, as well as a very nice scene where the title character, a blind swordswoman, has her top and bra ripped off and gets whipped across her bare back.
Blood Feast - A captured women has the back of her dress ripped off and is whipped to death by Faud Ramses as part of a recipe to resurrect an Egyptian goddess. A fairly long and extremely bloody scene.
Blood Sucking Freaks (aka The Heritage of Caligula?!) – A girl is taken prisoner by a macabre acting troop. She is taken to the dungeon where she is placed in a guillotine, with a rope holding the blade up in her mouth. She is then caned, until she screams and is beheaded. There's also a scene towards the beginning with a woman on all fours crawling and being whipped.
Bluebeard – A beautiful woman is rude to Bluebeard and he finally takes a whip to her. She likes it and kneels on the floor encouraging him to whip her harder. He doesn't like this and ends up killing her. Richard Burton stars with a host of European beauties.
Bohemian Girl, The - This Laurel and Hardy film has a near whipping scene towards the end in which the title character is tied to a whipping post and has her clothing pulled down to expose her upper back. The whipping gets stopped, but the scenes of her tied to the post looking back in fear are still quite nice.
Botany Bay - An old woman is whipped as punishment after having a bit of the top of her dress ripped off. We hardly see any whipping, and even if we did it wouldn't merit a look. I just mention this because the video box makes it look like the lovely Patricia Medina is going to get whipped. She doesn't, so don't waste your money. Nice box cover, though.
Brand of Shame - A woman is whipped across her chest. More Dave Friedman sleaze.
Brigade Mondaine - aka "Marrakesh Cult" - has a scene where a woman is tied between two posts and whipped for defying a cult leader's wishes. She's stripped to the waist and whipped with a long bullwhip. Mostly shot from the front, but we do get to see the whip hitting her back in one shot. A good scene.
Broken Blossoms - Lillian Gish is whipped by her abusive father in this sappy D.W. Griffith film.
Brothers in Arms - A heavily clothed girl (played by Dedee Pfeiffer, Michelle's sister!) is tied squatting on the ground and whipped by Roberts Blossom (the old man in Home Alone!). Her clothes tear open in a couple of places and we get to see the whip marks, but the whipping is stopped by another man, who ends up taking her place.
Burial of the Rats - A young woman is tortured with whipping. Too bad she's clothed and we never get to see anything.
Cabaret - Liza Minnelli entertains the Baron in a nightclub where one girl whips another girl tied to a bedpost behind a screen, while another girl pours him champagne. It gave period atmosphere to the decadence of l930's Germany. An excellent film on all counts.
Caged Beauties - This Asian prison camp film has both male and female whippings in it.
Caged Heat II - A bad women-in-prison movie with a great whipping. Jewel Shepard gets chained with her face to a wall, has the top of her prison dress ripped off, and is given over twenty lashes by a guard. Nicely acted, though the whipping and the whip are really fake looking. Later, we see a couple of girls treating the whip cuts - which now, of course, look completely different.
Caged Women in Purgatory - A great women-in-prison movie with, unfortunately, not much whip action. Lots of great looking Italian girls on display here. One scenes involve women strapped to a cross while being whipped across the front of her body.
Caligula - Has a brief scene in Caligula's fantasies where a woman is strung up in the air by her arms and legs and whipped all over as she rotates. There are some whip marks on her back and sides.
Caligula's Slaves - Woman whips a nude slave.
Cargo of Love - Disobedient white slave girl is tied face down and naked to a bed and whipped by the Head Mistress , while two goons watch. Sexy girl and good scenario.
Carribean - A slave girl, naked to the waist, is tied to a wooden cross while on her knees, and flogged with at least 10 lashes.
Casanova - There is reported whipping scene in the 1976 version.
Chiavi in mano - a woman whips herself in this Italian comedy from early 90.
Chinese Ghost Story - This has a brief whipping scene.
Chinese Torture Chamber - Towards the beginning a girl is taken to the ground and has her bare bottom spanked by large boards.
Cleopatra (l933) - there is a twenty minute orgy scene (pretty tame by today's standards) where a lion tamer pretends to whip a half dozen girls amusingly dressed as lions and makes them jump through flaming rings. Quite a scene, what with Cecil B. DeMille's production values.
Commando Fury (aka Concentration Camp For Girls, Women's Prison 1991) - Has scene where a girl with the back of her dress ripped open has been whipped. She's released, and goes through the rest of the film with the same garb, so we get to see her whipped marked back several times.
Congress Dances -(l931) the little glove maker (Lillian Harvey, an English women who spoke perfect German) is sentenced to be whipped on her bare behind, but is saved at the last minute by no less a personage than the the king himself (Willy Fritsch). The young man who was to give the whipping almost breaks into tears. This was, after all, a musical comedy and scenes of torture would have been out of place. This is, by the way is a very charming film.
Curse of the Crimson Altar - aka The Crimson Cult. Barbara Steele presides over the whipping of a woman tied face up and whipped over the front of her body. This scene is severely edited in many prints.
Creatures the World Forgot, The - two pretty cavegirls are stripped to the waist, laid on their backs and flagellated on their bare breasts by an old crone in a sort of ritual.
Creole Witch – In the steaming bayous of Louisiana a modern witch is whipped and otherwise tormented by a warlock in a struggle for supremacy. Get more details.Criminal Women Report (aka Edo Inquisition Torture) - Has a couple of scenes where Asian women are bent over on the ground and spanked hard with a paddle by another woman. Good scenes, but what a brutal film this is.
Crucible, The - In one, or maybe both, versions of this film a girl is whipped
Cry of the Banshee - This is probably the only film that features cart-tail whipping that was so commonplace in England at one time. A woman convicted of witchcraft is branded, whipped through the streets of an English village, and then set in the stocks. When she's whipped, her shift is merely pulled down at the back, but for a couple of frames, one can see the garment slip off her shoulders, leaving her briefly naked to the waist. This is shown at a distance, and if you blink, you'll miss it.
Dangerous Beauty - Original Title: The Courtesan. In Venice of the 1600s, when the Holy Inquisition goes after the courtesan class that is prominent among the elite, we see three beautiful women bound to overhead beams in a public courtyard, their dresses ripped open in the back, showing bright red stripes from recent floggings which are not shown.
A HUGE, INTERNATIONAL, PRIVATE COLLECTION OF WHIPPING SCENES from main stream films, foreign films, privately produced videos, collectors archives, animations, artwork and so much more. This is without doubt the most complete collection ever compiled. Learn more here.
Dark Secrets - At the beginning of the film, an extremely large-chested women is lightly whipped by another woman. To much like a bondage porno whipping to be any good. If you must see this, though, make sure you get the unrated version. This scene isn't in the R-rated version.
Daughters of Satan - Two scenes. In the opening scene, and woman is tied above some spikes and whipped by the female leader of a coven. In a couple of shots we can see the whip marks on her back. In a later scene, a different woman is tied up, naked to the waist, and given a few lashes across the front of her body by the leader. Look for a young Tom Sellick in this one.
Deadly Sanctuary (aka Justine) - Another Jess Franco bore-o-rama, wasting the talents of Jack Palance and Klaus Kinski. In a couple of scenes a girl is whipped, but we can't really see anything. There is a two hour version of this film called Justine.
Death and the Maiden - Sigourney Weaver plays a woman who was tortured. In a nude scene early in the film, Sigourney is washing her face and we can see faint scars on her lower back. Not really a whipping scene, but interesting nonetheless.
Death Dancers - A lovely tied down lass gets her front whipped in a scene from this one.
Decline of the American Empire - Original in French , late 80's. One of the female leads is having an affair with a rough character who is into SM. Whip marks are shown while she is changing at the gym with her friend. Later we see her face at the window while she is being whipped by the boyfriend.
Defiance - xxx. Young girl (Jean Jennings) is wrongly sent to an institution where she is degraded, tortured and whipped. Directed by the late Gerard Damiano of “Deep Throat” and “The Devil In Miss Jones” fame.
Defilers, The - A sleazy nasty David Friedman production that is much better than you would expect. The closing scene has a kidnapped women being savagely beaten with a belt by one of the bad guys. Worth a look, though it is a bit disturbing.
DeSade - Has a scene where the Marquis (played by Keir Dullea!) whips a prostitute’s ass with a sword. There are several versions of this film. In some versions we get to see bloody marks and in others we don't. Either way, it's worth a look.
Destroy My Soul - Japanese nun film has several whipping scenes. In one, a nun flogs her own naked back at night. In another, two nuns fight it out with whips until they are too weak to hit each other again. Finally, a woman is tied with rose thorns and then brutally whipped with more thorns.
Detention Girls - Film with an excellent (and lengthy) whipping scene. Anyway, this thing is about a girl doing hard time for getting busted at a campus demonstration. At one point, another inmate splashes water on a guard and blames it on our poor heroine. She's taken to the basement, forced to strip, and tied with her arms spread wide. The warden comes down and whips her with a bullwhip for a very long time as she says things like "How do you like that?" and "I'll give you something to talk about!" Most of the whipping is shot from the front, which is actually good. The actresses’ reactions are among the best I've seen. While she's not a very good actress, she does a pretty good job during the whipping scene. After the whipping, she's taken down and is taken to the infirmary. Later in the movie, two other girls are paddled. And, towards the end, our heroine is beaten with a belt on her bottom by the prison doctor.
Diamond Ninja Force - Woman is whipped by a Ninja.
Django - (Western, Italy 1967 , by Sergio Corbucci): Loredana Nusciak is tied with spread arms to a wooden bridge, her dress is torn down from one shoulder, then she is whipped by the chief of a cowboy gang. German version: 4 lashes done very realistically including the sound. She squirms and cries under each lash. I also liked the tension slowly being built up: First you see her being dragged through the sand towards the bridge; when she is tied up, the chief tells her what is going to happen to her. The scene is at the beginning of the movie. The ORIGINAL ITALIAN version found on video has 10 lashes on screen showing Loredana from different camera angles.
Django 2 - a bad sequel of first one; in a scene we see a master giving only one lash, with a long bullwhip, to a beautiful Creole slave while cat fighting with another woman.
Dracula's Great Love - This Paul Naschy vehicle has several titles. Has a scene where a woman is being whipped by another woman. When Naschy comes in, they rip off the back of the womans shirt and he takes his turn whipping her. Then some women suck the blood from the wounds on the woman's back.
Dragonard - A black female servant is whipped. She has the back of her top torn open, but there is only one shot of her back from far away, making the whip marks hard to see. Still, this is a pretty good, well-acted scene.
Dragonard Rising - A black woman is whipped briefly toward the end of the film. Another long shot, nothing really to see.
Dressurakt fuer Wilde Maedchen Rumoured to have a whipping scene.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Both the 30's version with Frederich March and the 40's version with Spencer Tracy have similar scenes in which Ivy shows Jekyll the whip marks that Hyde has given her. The 30's version has an additional scene in which a woman is treating Ivy's beaten back. The 40's version has a scene in which Tracy dreams that Ivy and his fiance are horses and he is whipping them!
Dungeon of Terror - Also know as Jean Rollin's Requiem for a Vampire. Has a scene where a girl ties up her own girl friend and tortures her with a whip to extract information. Some marks appear on the girl back and buttocks, but we are just treated to shadows during most of the whipping.
Dungeons of Horror – A low budget black & white film (might be British). Though it sounds medieval, it is set in some castle on an island circa 19th century. One quick scene of a serving girl being whipped.
Edge of Sanity - No whipping scene in this movie , just the results of one. Young woman mental patient is examined, when whip marks are discovered on her back. The look in her eyes indicates she enjoys a good beating.
Eerie Midnight Horror Show, The (aka The Sexorcist) - A woman's lover whips the front of her body with a rose thorn.
El Topo - Two women have a whip fight in Alejandro Jodorowsky's surreal masterpiece. One of them gets the upper hand, then lifts up the shirt of the other woman and licks her bloody wounds.

Erotic Rites of Frankenstein- Jess Franco vehicle has a scene where a man and woman are tied back to back. They are whipped with a long whip until they fall on stakes. There is a similar scene in a Franco film called "Golden Temple Amazons”.
Escape From Blood Plantation - Udo Kier is made to whip his Filipino slave girlfriend. She is tied to a post and is topless for much of the scene. Most of the whipping is off-screen, and the few that are on are brief. We get to see a portion of her whip marked back during the scene and some scenes after. Still, this is a pretty lame scene, though there are lots of cute slave girls on display through the entire film. This film also has another scene where a girl gets a couple of whacks with a stick across her clothed behind. Look for the gorgeous Barbara Valentine.
Escape From Hell (aka Escape) - The follow-up to Hotel Paradise has a scene where a woman is accused of stealing. She is held down on a tree trunk and has the back of her dress torn off, after which she is brutally lashed by a guard as the camp commander keeps egging him on to hit her harder. A long and intense scene.
Escape From Hell Hole - There are some whippings in this film which may be the only Hindi women-in-prison movie ever.
Escape From Inferno - aka "Nathalie, Escape From Hell." A redhead is chained to a short whipping post as is whipped by two women. Lengthy scene, which is unfortunately shot entirely from the front.

Fair Wind to Java - Captured female island girl refuses to reveal the location of pearls, is taken to dungeon, tied, shift ripped to waist and whipped with cat. A very good scene featuring Vera Hruba Ralston, wife of the studio head and World class figure skater. Fred Mc Murray also stars.
Female Market - This has to be one of the most misogynistic movies ever made! Only one whipping scene, though - and unfortunately it's poorly shot. The victim is a very beautiful asian women, and we do get to see the whip marks on her back several times throughout the remainder of the movie.
Female Prohibition Center - A girl lifts the lower half of her shirt up to show some reporters the whip marks on her back. Unfortunately, that's all we get to see in this otherwise very tame Asian film.
Fantasy Slave – From Paris a story about a pervert in the underground subway who has a fantasy about whipping a gorgeous woman passenger. Lots more here. Fiorina la Vacca - In this beautiful Italian comedy a woman is caned totally bared by her husband, that she thinks to be a new lover.
Flash Gordon - Gorgeous Ornella Muti is strapped to a table in a backless lycra suit. She is tortured by a dominatrix villain Kala who whips her with a cat o' nine tails. The whipping is pretty fake looking, but the marks on Muti's back look pretty realistic.
Flash of Green, A - A woman is taken into the woods, tied to a tree, and whipped with belts by "vigilantes." She is next seen walking along a road. She turns around and shows the blood on the back of her shirt. Later, she is in a hospital lying face down on a stretcher.
Flavia - This Italian Roman Orgy film has lots of long scenes of female slaves being whipped across their asses and/or fronts. Unfortunately, no marks ever seem to appear on anyone, and the acting leaves quite a bit to be desired.
Flavia, The Heretic - A rebel nun is stripped and caned on her back. We only get to see her facial reactions, though.
Flowers in the Attic - In this terrible adaptation of a mediocre book, a mother (played by Victoria Tennant) is whipped after she and her children go back to live at her parents house. From afar we see her remove her top as her father watches. Then we see her mother pull the whip out of a bag Later, her mother makes her show the whip marks to her kids.
Frank and I - A girl is caned by a man that thinks she is a boy . He makes the 'boy' take down her trousers and soundly canes her bare behind. Vicious bloody marks appear, and by the end of the scene he realized that the 'boy' is actually a girl. Sound inane? It is, but what a great scene. Also has a scene where the movie's hero and a friend go to a house of ill repute where the madam presents a drama for them. The drama is an "anarchist" being punished in Csarist Russia. A nude woman is chained to a wall in some sort of dungeon, and another woman whips her with a flogger which draws "blood." That scene alone is worth watching the movie for.
Fraulein Devil - Woman is chained to the wall and whipped by a female Nazi.
From Beyond - Has a scene where the main characters watch Dr. Pretorius whipping a woman on a TV screen. It's shot from the front, and the woman is wearing a tight leather outfit. In the original cut of the film, which was never released, the woman was nude (according to an article in Rolling Stone). She had to be covered in order for the scum at the MPAA to give the film an R rating.
Gate of Flesh - Has two scenes where Japanese prostitutes are tied up and whipped with thin sticks by other members of their group. This is a very dramatic film depicting the aftermath of World War 2 on the people of Japan. This film also has a stunning scene of cow butchering that will upset even the hard boiled among you.
Girl in Room 2A, The - In a flashback sequence, we see a dungeon torture scene that includes a nude woman being whipped. Fake looking, but the woman's writhing is kinda nice.
Glen or Glenda - Has a scene with a girl whipping another clothed girl on a couch. This is only in the rare re-release version of the film, and was added to please a wilder crowd. Some suspect that this scene was originally from Ed Wood's The Sinister Urge.
Glitter Dome, The - In this lackluster cable movie, there is a scene in which James Garner and John Lithgow watch a porn film that they have confiscated. In the film, an "underaged" actress is tied naked to a frame and bullwhipped on her back by a man. The scene is very quick, but very nice.
Golden Ninja Warrior - Topless (then naked) Asian women whipped between two beds - mostly shot from the front.
Golden Temple Amazons-Scene similar to "Erotic Rites of Frankenstein" . Jess Franco often used the same footage in multiple movies.
Goliath vs. The Vampires - has the raiders of the monster Cobrak whip a young village girl for not moving fast enough to the slave ship. This is an excellent film, by the way, and is like a pulp novel come to life.
Goya - in this spanish movie from 1973, Goya dreams a scene where a man whips his lover, the duchess of Alba, togheter another woman - the scene is taken in "slow-motion".
Hand of Pleasure,The - Man dressed in drag whips naked cute blonde chick on a bed. Extremely fake whipping scene , Thank goodness the victim is naked.
Handmaid's Tale, The - A girl has her feet whipped. We only see the aftermath, though. The camera shows the tops of her feet and we can see that the bottoms are bleeding, but that's it.
Hanzo the Razor's Torture From Hell - a woman gets a pretty nasty caning in this Japanese film.
Harem Slave -I found a tape made of some old Turkish movie about a slave girl becoming a harem woman. There's at least 3 whipping scenes: one dancer angers her master and gets whipped after lovemaking; the slave girl gets whipped by a slave auctioneer because she slapped a buyer; and the sultan's favorite whips the slave girl out of sheer jealousy. The title, as close as I can make out is "Harem Slave." Since the whole thing is in Turkish or Arabic, all you can do is sit back and enjoy - there's plenty of half-nude belly dancing as well.
Hexan - very famous silent danish movie; during a "sabbat" a devil whips briefly a nude witch.
Headmistress - Like all David Freidman productions, the whipping in this one is fake looking, but the girl sure is cute.
Heads or Tails - A prostitute is held down on the ground by two women. Her back is bared and a woman wearing black beats her with a bullwhip. Some light marks appear on the woman's skin. Too bad the rest of this film is just another one of those typical Italian spaghetti westerns.
Hell – A magnificent female demon is tortured by the forces of virtue on a prision planet in a galaxy far far away. She is tortured with a lazer whip. A long and intense scene. From an exceptional compilation film. Find out more now.Hearts of the World (l917) - In this D.W. Griffith film, a German officer whips Lillian Gish for not working fast enough.
Hell Mountain - It has been shown on pay-per-view a few times. A friend in Brazil sent this clip to me. The plot has something to do with a bleak (or not-so-bleak, depending on how you look at it) future in which women are captured and made to work in mines for some reason. A woman defies her mistress and is punished for it. She's stripped and suspended by other female prisoners, and the mistress gives her several lashes. The scene is mostly devoted to the preparation for the whipping. We never see her back, and we never see the whip make contact. Still, the woman is very attractive, and this is quite a good scene, if all too brief. Directed by Simandl who is the Eastern European answer to Jess Franco at his work. His films are tedious but all have some erotic content. Look for the one with Sable of wrestling fame.
Hercules and the Beast of Babylon - Three girls tied to crosses, facing their flogger and fully clothed .
Hiding Place, The - Pat Robertson meets Ilsa. In this Christian film, a woman is whipped off-screen by nazis. Very realistic sounds and screaming, but that's all we get. In another scene, a clothed woman is whipped by a Nazi guard.
Hiroku Nagaski Onna-Ro - Very similar to the film "Criminal Report." Has a couple of whipping scenes, but nothing is really shown.
Hitler's Children (aka The Hitler Gang) - Cute Bonita Granville gets tied to a post, has the back of her dress ripped, and is whipped for betraying the Nazis. The whipping is stopped by the hero after only a few lashes. Damn those heroes, always showing up at just the wrong time.
Hollywood Babylon - Soft-core production has a scene in which a naked woman is tied face down on a table and is weakly whipped on her back and buttocks by a woman as a film director looks on. A few faint marks appear. The director looks an awful lot like Otto Preminger.
Hot Spur - A woman is whipped in a barn by a kidnapper. Virginia Gordon plays the part and the film is actually not bad for an exploitation production.
Hotel Paradise – A great whipping scene. In this prequel to Escape From Hell, two women are tied facing each other. They are stripped to the waist and a guard brutally lashes the tops of their bodies for a very long time. Another girl tries to stop it, and she ends up getting chased around the camp with a whip.
House of 1,000 Dolls - A prostitute wearing only a bra and panties is whipped on her back to extract information. Another girl is there, and she quickly stops the whipping by offering the information for fear that she will be next. Later, we see the whipped girl having her wounds treated in the background of a scene.
House of Whipcord - This is a pretty good film in its own right. The whipping scenes are pretty lackluster, though. In the first one, we see the victim from far away. The back of her prison uniform is untied and pushed off her shoulders, but the damn door closes before the whipping starts. In the second whipping, with a different victim, the girl's uniform is untied, but we only see her lower back briefly. The rest of the whipping scene shows her facial reactions, which are well acted. Later, we get to see the second victims whip marks as she is lying on a bunk bed; the old woman who whipped her gazes intently at her marked back in a creepy way. This is a great psychodrama that has been under appreciated due to its sleazy reputation and tawdry title.
House of Women- There is a whipping of an inmate in this women-in-prison movie.
House on Todville Road, The - A female cult member is whipped. Later, we see the marks on her back as she is laying on a shower floor. Even later we see another cult member treating the whip marks. Still later we see her in the shower again, with the marks still there. And lastly she shows the marks to the visiting doctor to show him how "legitimate" this cult really is. The marks are unrealistic looking, and the whipping scene is pretty lame. Still, this is one of the cutest girls ever getting whipped in a film.
House That Screamed, The (Spain 196?) , by Nasco I. Serrador: Original: LA RESIDENCIA (aka The Finishing School) About an old-fashioned girls school: One beautiful girl breaks the rules again an again, until she is punished. The headmistress and some other women take her into a small sleeping room upstairs, tear her dress off while she squirms, spits and fights in order to escape. Then they lay her onto a bed, face down, and keep her in a tight grip. Her shirt is torn open leaving the back naked. One woman takes a whip (about 1 meter long, several straps) and beats her bare back sharply. Good sound. You see the red marks. Many lashes, but unfortunately the scene is intercut with another scene
Husbands and Lovers - this movie contains an over the knee spanking to the star Joanna Pakula. also later we see a very realistic cane mark on her back, at which time she recounts the experience to her husband. we see her lover strip her and give her three very real and violent strokes with the cane. overall a pretty good movie.
I, The Worst of All - Has a brief scene with nuns flagellating themselves.
Idol of Paris - Period drama set in France. The two leading ladies fight a dual with whips, good fun scene. Later copied by Michael Winner for The Wicked Lady. Years ago Winner sued brit paper News Of the World after they claimed he caned his black girlfriend.
Il Figlio Del Corsaro Rosso (Italy 1959, by Primo Zeglio) - An old-fashioned pirate movie with Sylvia Lopez and Vira Silenti. In search of her brother's murderers, Lopez comes to the house of the evil governor of Panama. He tries to blackmail Silenti into marriage by forcing her to watch Lopez being whipped in his dungeon. Tied with spread arms to a large wooden cross, she is heroic and implores Silenti not to give in This is a pretty long scene showing beautiful Lopez most of the time, and giving a nice tension about what is in store for her. So her dress is ripped open at the back and her long red hair is placed in front of her shoulders. Then she gets about 10 lashes (half of which are onscreen, showing her from the back and side). In between, her dress is ripped apart a bit more, and the governor orders the torturer to continue harder. Eventually she faints. Some marks are visible, and her painful moans are pretty realistic.
Il fiore delle mille e una notte - by Pasolini - a young black slave is whipped by master, but we only hear the whipping and screams.
Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS - A woman is whipped alongside a man to show which of the sexes are stronger. This is a very bloody whipping scene, as the two are eventually whipped to death. Later, we see the dead victims hanging upside down. This is a real sick one.
Ilsa, Wicked Warden - A female inmate is whipped in one of the few Jess Franco movies that are actually watchable. The whipping is extremely fake, and the victim has some ugly eye make-up on her fact to make it look like an eye was gouged out. Still, the eye thing is mostly out of sight and her writhing is pretty cool.
Ines the Novice - Has a scene in which a fellow nun strips and asks Ines to whip her. During the whipping, the nun asks to be whipped harder and harder. Faint marks appear on the nun's naked back. Finally Ines can whip no harder and stops. Later, Ines has a brief bout of self-flagellation for penance.
In Cold Blood - Original version. Has a scene in which one of the killers(played by Robert Blake)flashes back to a scene of his father whipping his mother with a belt.She's wearing a bra and half-slip crouching on a bed.
Infidelity American Style - Woman is layed on a platform and whipped on her bare back by a man with a hat and cape.
Innocents From Hell - Has a scene where nuns are being whipped because they've witnessed a demonic possession and need to be cleansed. Quite gory and there are a couple of good shots.
Inquisitor, The - Argentino-Peruvian co-production has a whipping scene towards the end. A girl is stripped to the waist and tied to a post. We get to see just the ending of the whipping, but there are lots of shots of her marked back. Very atmospheric set adds to the scenes eroticism.
Intimate Moments - A businessman is surprised when the call girl he requested to join him on his plane turns out to be his own administrative assistant. She removes her dress, is thrown against the wall and given 8 or 9 strokes with a crop as she slowly sinks to her knees from the pain.
Invitation to Ruin - There is a whipping in the "dungeon scene" that is edited out of some prints. A girl is chained high in the air, and her arms are far apart. A fat old hag whips her all over. At first we see the girls back, but eventually she turns around and we see her front as well. Her entire body is covered with marks. It's a pretty good scene and it looks like the actress had to suffer a bit to make the scene work.
Island Women - Female island prison movie contains a couple of whipping scenes. In the best one, a nude woman is face down on a wire bed frame being wacked with a stick. In another one, we see a chained up woman being whipped in a cell.
Issa Valley, The - Both the movie and the book contain a scene, where a female charactertries to seduce a man. She is very unpleasant for him and her annoying behaviour causes him some troubles. Finally he whips her with a leather whip. As Milosz wrote, "she bit the pillow to prevent screaming, but she felt happy, as she knew that by flogging her he takes her in posession". This extremely patriarchal sequence is recreated in the movie with some care. The whipping scene does not actually look 'realistic' (it is seen from sideview, with the woman lying on a bed and the man standing above her), but the extremely patriarchal mood is present in the movie.
Jaded - only one lash eared in this movie from late 90's: a nude girl is whipped by another one with a chain, on a beach, after a terrible raping, while a man takes a movie, we also see some light scars on back.
Jane Eyre (1996) - Supposed to have the whipping of a schoolgirl in it, probably with a switch.
Jo Shuu:Sasori - All of the films in this Japanese prison seriesare reputed to have female whippings in them.

Upon entering prison, she's stripped to the waist and chained to the wall to be whipped. Unfortunately, she's reprieved before she gets one lash.
Justine - The version with Koo Stark is reported to have a whipping scene.
Justine De Sade - Has a brief whip-orgy scene in which three women and one man take turns whipping each other. Also has a scene in which Justine is whipped on her buttocks by a man while she is working pushing a mill wheel.
Kentucky Fried Movie - At the beginning of this mostly lame John Landis comedy, there is a b-movie film spoof that has Felix Silla (who played Twikki on Buck Rodgers!) whipping three topless co-eds.
King and I, The - A runaway slave is brought to the king and dragged to the floor face down, guards on each arm holding them straight out from her body. The king takes a bullwhip and is about to strike her across the back when he wimps out. Was a nice dramatic moment though. (Anonymous) In THE KING AND I, the beautiful slave-girl Tuptim (Rita Moreno in the film) is spread-eagled on the floor, her garment torn away from her back, awaiting the sting of the lash from the king himself (Yul Brynner). She has committed the "sin" of desiring to escape to happiness with her young lover (Kralahome is his name, I believe). Tuptim has been given this vision of freedom by Anna, who brought to Siam the American novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, for which Tuptim recently portrayed the escaping Southern black slave in a theatrical recreation of the drama for the King for his court's entertainment. The King is using Tuptim as an "example" for all - in his resistance and reluctance to change which Anna has brought to him. He ultimately drops the whip, softening before the pleas from Anna to resist beating the young girl.
Kiss Me Kill Me (aka Baba Yaga) - Directed by Umberto (Cannibal Ferox) Lenzi, and based on Guido Crepax's "Valantina" comic. Has a scene where a female is whipped by a woman as her mistress watches. Approximately 10 strokes, most close ups of whipper and victim's reactions. Features American actress Carol Baker who didn’t get really big until she started making movies in Europe.

L'Armata Brancaleone - Barbara Steele starts whipping a man as she and him are undressing. He then starts whipping her. An unusual scene that is supposed to be funny.
La Badessa Di Castro - about a bunch of nuns during 16th cent. Usual nun thing, they get in trouble and are questioned in torture chamber. There is a good whip scene where a nun gets flogged across her bare chest with a cat for a good while. There are lots of good bloody marks though.

La Monaca del Peccato (The Nun of Sin, Convent of Sinners, Nunnery on Fire) - Has a good scene where two nuns are stripped topless and whipped by the mother superior. Both are cute and one has some quite nice assets.

Lady Jane Gray , played by English rose Helen Bonham Carter is refusing her mothers plan for her to enter into a political marriage. She is ordered to lay across a bench. The male servants are sent away . Two female servants remain to assist with her punishment people who get birched usually need to be held down or otherwise secured. A long birch switch of about five rods is held . We are close up on her face as we hear her breeches being removed, remember the birch needs to be across bare skin. Then we hear a swishing sound ,followed by a grimace of pain across her face. The birch goes on stinging after each stroke. A brief pause then another well measured stroke, then another. The scene fades from her face and squeals of pain to an exterior shot of the castle. Eight strokes having been heard on the sound track. We are not told how long the birching goes on for but later we see her in a crumpled heap, tears in her eyes, on the floor some at least of that defiance subdued . Her bottom which we know must be well marked is still smarting.
Land of the Pharaohs - Joan Collins is whipped on her back. She's wearing a harem type outfit. Pretty good scene, but very brief, with an interesting and erotic theme.
Lash of the Penitentes (aka The Penitente Murder Case, El Asanato de los Penitentes) - In the original Spanish version, a woman is hung high up in the air and whipped. In the shortened American version the film is without this scene, but there is a part of the scene intact in the widely available trailer for the film.

In the w-scene a young man and a young woman are tied, their upper bodies naked, face to face to a boom and doomed to 20 lashes. Almost all of them are given before the woman faints and the whipmaster (or whoever he is) commands to stop. The scene is very realistic.
La villa di Satana - (Satan's Mansion) a low-budget movie (European) from the sixties. A great and strong scene: during a stormy night a man takes shelter in a big, dark mansion, whose master is a diabolic noble man; toward the end of the movie, he enters in a big room, and sees a woman suspended by wrists to the high ceiling, she's totally nude and is longly and savagely bullwhipped all the entire body (fully covered of bloody welts) by an assistant of the master:

Love Camp - This is the one with Laura Gemser. It's a terrible movie, but it has a scene at the beginning where two lovers are tied to posts and whipped, since Gemser's cult forbids monogamy. Interestingly, the man is whipped by a woman, and the woman is whipped by a man.
Love Camp (Franco) - aka Frauen im Liebslager. Two women are whipped after fighting in the camp. Only their reactions are shown, but these are pretty realistic (except for some REALLY exaggerated expressions by the second girl) and this is a very long scene - one of the longest whipping scenes ever seen in a non-bondage film.
Love Camp 7 - The infamous Dave Freidman/Bob Cresse Nazi low-budgeter. Has a scene where all of the women are made to hold up a bucket, and the one who drops it will get whipped. Unfortunately, this scene cuts away just as the commandant starts lashing his chosen victim. Has another scene where a woman is tied with her hands behind her back and then whipped with a belt. This scene is very realistic, and the marks look real. Later in the same scene we see the whip marks on another woman's back as she crawls on the floor to let the tied woman stand on her. Pretty good scenes.
Love Camp 27 - Same basic no plot Nazi schlock as LC-7. Has one fairly gruesome scene where one girl is called out by her number for punishment. She is stripped naked, bound face up on a bench, and then flogged by two stocky wardresses with bundled switches. They beat her from neck to knees and there is plenty (relatively) of agonized reaction and bloody welts. The "star" of the film is quite pretty and is called up next, but unfortunately the commandant stops it before anything happens. Bummer. Still, it's not bad, considering.
Love Crimes - Patrick Bergan crops a topless girl who is acting like a horse. Nice scene, but very mild.
Love In Sampan - Asian woman is whipped by her domineering husband. Later we see her in a shower and we see the marks on her back (in addition to a pretty hot lesbian scene).

Lust For Freedom - A woman is stripped to the waist and whipped for trying to escape from prison. The shots of the whipping are all reaction shots or extreme close ups of a part of her back, and the marks are unnecessarily gruesome looking. If you look closely, though, you can tell that two different 'whips' were used in the scene.
Lust Weekend - There are various whippings of both sexes in this sixties sex film. None of them are really any good, but there is a good scene where a woman has the whip marks on her back treated by two other girls.
Lustful Turk, The - Cheesy David Freidman production has a few whippings of cute girls.
Lycantropus & The Vampire, The - no whipping, but we see a brief scene where a girl is chained in a dungeon, and has the bare back covered with bloody marks, later another scene where three girls are tied to a triangular post, have dresses ripped off for torture, but no whipping again, later they are untied with the bloody back again.
Maciste Nella Terra dei Ciclopi - in this italian sword & sandal (1961) a group of captive women is lashed several times by the guards of an evil queen while pushed in the dungeons, forced to reveal who, among them, is the queen, and so on, not much to see anyway, since they're full clothed.
Magus, The - starring Anthony Quinn, Candice Bergen, and Michael Caine. It makes little sense, but it contains a scene in which Quinn invites Caine to administer a bullwhip to Candice's bare back. She is tied with her arms raised. He is tempted, but drops the whip and walks away. Hot scene, horrible movie.
Maid of Salem - Bonita Granville is up to spreading rumors and dad takes the belt to her - we hear her yelling offscreen.
Maidens of Fetish Street - Wife catches husband in bed with another woman and whips her silly. This film is most notable for featuring an early appearance by the young and perfectly sculptured Kelly Everts who went on to win every nude beauty contest on the planet.
Maitress - Gerard Depardieu whips a woman who is tied to a chair. Yes, those welts on her ass are real, as is pretty much everything else in Barbet Schroeder's excellent look into the S/M scene.
Malenka - aka Fangs of the Living Dead. By the same guy that made Night of the Sorcerers. A female vampire wearing a backless negligee is chained in a dungeon and whipped on her bare back. From what I've heard this is a brief scene.

Man In The Moon - Young Reese Witherspoon's father is upset with her because she did something that accidentally caused her pregnant mother to end up in the hospital. When her father comes back into the house and sees her, he pulls off his belt and chases her. It's done off screen, but if I remember correctly, you can hear at least one crack of the belt. Nothing more is shown.

Mannaja - italian spagetti-western: actress Martine Brochard is a prostitute whipped on bare back by order of the town-keeper.
Man With a Maid - Victorian soft-core has some weak whipping. Nothing too notable, this film is more for straight bondage fans.
Man With Two Heads, The - Has Dr. Jekyll (as Mr. Hyde) whipping a prostitute. She's clothed. Later she shows the marks to Jekyll. This film, directed by the late Andy Milligan, is easily one of the worst movies ever made.
Mark of the Devil - A woman is whipped while stretched on a rack, but nothing is shown. Also, a woman is whipped in a barn, but is fully clothed. Still, all in all, this film has a very strong and disturbing sadistic theme.
Mark of the Devil II - A bald nun is made to get a cat o' nine tails, then strip as her Mother Superior beats her. The nun is the forced to beat the Mother Superior.
Massacre of Pleasure - Toward the end of the film, a female is tied to a post and has a belt taken across her back. Very brief scene.
Mia Mmoglie Una Strega (My wife is a witch) - it's a comedy, with one scene: italian actress Eleonora Giorgi (Story of a Cloistered Nun) is a witch longly whipped to get her to confess, but the scene is comic in nature and quite unrealistic.
Mole People, The - Has a brief scene where a servant girl is whipped for spilling water. She is forced to kneel for her whipping, which is stopped by John Agar.
Moll Flanders - Near the start, a priest tries to grab Moll (Robin Wright) in a confessional and she stabs him with a knitting needle. In the next scene, she's being held over a table and whipped with a large birch to get her to take back what she said about the priest. You only see one or two strokes and then it ends.
Mondo Bizarro - In a fake Nazi play, a 'Jewish' girl is whipped. Totally fake and really cheesy.
Mondo Freudo (aka The Sensual Taboo) - By the same lovely folks that brought you "Bizarro". This one purports to show a real Japanese night club act where a girl is whipped, then caned on her back, then whipped again. All pretty lame, the supposed victims are smiling. What the hell were these people thinking?
Monella - a woman is spanked with a white glove on bare bottom by her lover, in this Italian erotic movie.
Mongols, The - A girl is tortured with the whip. She is topless, but her hair covers most of her back. Still it's a pretty good scene. Her reactions are very nice. Later, as some women are led out to be burned, you can see whip marks on their backs if you look closely. Also has a scene in whick Jack Palance flogs Anita Ekberg. In a later scene we can see the marks across Anita's back.
Monk and the Daughter of the Hangman -. Has a scene where the Hangman is reluctantly giving a woman (the daugher?) a public flogging. It's shot from the front. Later, the Hangman is rubbing a black substance on the woman's bloody back, as the Monk flagellates himself.
Mortal Transfer - French black comedy has a scene where the main character watches a video of a woman being whipped.
Ms. Stilleto (aka Isabelle, Duchess of Devils)- The title character is tied up and whipped by two men after trying to escape from a dungeon. She is tied facing the camera, and her reactions are fairly realistic. This is a very good scene especially in its European version. The lead up to the whipping is also quite erotic as she dances provocatively for her intended victim.
Musketeers of the Sea - This film may have a whipping scene with Anna Maria Pierangeli.
Naked Massacre - Foreign movie Psycho killer tells girl to strip , she panics and freezes so he pulls down her pajama bottom and uses his belt on her bare bottom.

New Eden - A sci-fi/sword-and-sandal film with Stephen Baldwin and Lisa Bonet. In one scene, lovely Lisa gets whipped by a dominatrix villianess. Brief scene, with only a few lashes given. Alas, Lisa is fully clothed in the scene. After the whipping, Bill Cosby has a brief cameo, in which he tells Lisa that that's what she gets for leaving The Cosby Show.
Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, The - aka The Night She Came Out of the Tomb has a nice bullwhipping scene of a stripper in an old castle, although the victim is not tied. Quite erotic if you give it a chance to unfold.

She's been stripped to the waist a whipped with a belt by the villian he has just killed. He unties her and lay her on a bed. At the end, it all turns out to be a dream .
Night of the Sorcerers - Amando de Ossorio's politically incorrect horror number has several scenes where natives tie and whip the clothes off several beautiful European actresses. The scenes are long, graphic and erotic and the women are all very good looking.
Nightmare Castle (aka Night of the Doomed) - Barbara Steele and her lover get whipped in the uncut version of this film. Their both clothed and the scene is so brief that it is worthy of little merit.
Nightmare Circus - aka "Barnyard of the Naked Dead". Two whipping scenes. A woman, held captive, is whipped in a barn while laying on the ground. She gets about 12 lashes. Ok scene. Later, another captive girl gets whipped in the same barn. 9 lashes this time, but excellent screaming, face shots, and a good back shot with torn shirt. This occasional appears on television and if you look closely at the jungle dance scene you will notice that the actress in naked and what appears to be her costume is actually just painted on. It gets by the censors every time!
Nightmare in Badham County - Theatrical Version - In the theatrical version, which was shown overseas and on cable, a woman is stripped naked and whipped on her ass with a belt. It is a very gritty and realistic scene. Later, Deborah Raffin is whipped, but all we see is her face as her gown is torn down her back and the first lash hits her. She lets out an agonizing scream and the scene fades out. In the next scene a prison guard treats Deborah's wounds, but nothing is shown.
Notorius Concubines, The - Has two whipping scenes. In the first one, the master is whipping one of his slaves for spreading rumors. She is tied naked to a table and whipped across her lower back and bottom. Unfortunately, the scene is shot from afar at first, and after we are only shown her reactions. The second whipping has the master whipping another slave, this time clothed. She is on the ground and is whipped all over as she squirm all around. Later, we see the whip marks on her back and her master tells her that they will fade, but the memory of them will not.

O Estranho Mundo de Z do Caixo (The stange wold of Coffin Joe)- Brazilian cheap movie of early 60's: in a dream a man sees himself to the Hell, while watching many men and women tortured and whipped by devils; anyway ALL the movies of this strange film-maker (Z do Caixo, a.k.a. Coffin Joe, writer, producer, director and main role actor of all his movies) have fake whipping scenes.
Office Girls (1972) aka: Eros in the Office, European movie. Man causes his maid to trip over his foot and drop her tray, this gives him an excuse to whip her. He ties her face down and naked and his wife whips her. Later in another scene we see the man of the house whipping the maid just before 2 guys come to her rescue.
Olga's Girls - All of the Olga movies have whippings, but they are all pretty lackluster except for a pretty good scene where a girl is tortured in this one. This was some strong stuff back in the late 50’s and early 60’s.
Olga's House of Shame - see above, more of the same black and white brutality. The voice over narration is so strained and corny that it is hard to listen to.
One Russian Summer - aka Days of Fury. A female servant is whipped for supposedly stealing a mirror. This is one of the best whipping scenes ever . She is tied with her arms spread and is wearing a backless gown. There is a lot of tension built up in this scene, since there are pauses between the lashed and we wonder how long the whipping is going to continue. It only lasts for five lashes, but this is still a really good scene. The marks on her back are fairly realistic. Later, her whipped back is shown to a crowd to spark a riot.
One Eyed Soldiers - Has a scene in which Luciana Paluzzi (Bond Girl and serious European beauty) is tortured. She is stripped to the waist and given a couple of lashes. We don't get to see much, but there are a couple of good shots of her bare back. Later, we get a pretty good shot of the marks as the hero unshackles her. Her acting is quite good and so is the scene.
Orgy of the Dead - by A. C. Stephen, with the screenplay by none other than Ed Wood! Besides the fact that the movie is filled with poor acting, terrible editing and lacks continuity, it seemed nothing more than an excuse to feature strippers in a horror setting. There are 2 whipping scenes: the first one features a woman in a cat costume with her breasts hanging out in front of her costume and her ass bared in the back. She strips down to a bikini panty with some dude cracking a whip near her. The second scene (right after the first) features another muscular dude applying a cat o'nine tails to the back of a chained-up slave girl right across her back. He simply walks away and she begins to dance around the dungeon. Weird and wonderful?!
Other People's Secrets - (199?) A woman (Monique Parent) is chained and whipped by another woman.
Outcast, The - Joan Evens is held by her brothers and given 7 lashes by her father before she breaks free and as she turns we see the whip marks on the back of her dress. She verbally defies her her father and gets 2 more lashes before climbing a horse and escaping to town. There she is tended by an elderly woman and her upper back is bare but the marks had disappeared. The sounds of the horsewhip lashing her are very realistic.
Patriots - A woman is believed to have betrayed the IRA and is tortured. When we see her she's naked save for a cover on her head, and has several marks from the wire whip a female agent has used on her. She is questioned and the scene goes on for a while. The agent whips at her hands with the wire as she is forced to hold herself up by her fingertips. The tortured woman in this scene is likely not Linda Amendola, the actress playing the role. It's probably a body double since her face is covered and there's a body double listed in the credits.
Peking Opera Blues - Lengthy torture scene with Brigitte Lin. When we first see her she has already been treated to a session of the whip. She's fully clothed, but the back of her shirt has been ripped open in several places. A bucket of sand is then thrown on to her back. One of her torturers rubs his hand into to some of her wounds. Another set of lashes is applied, and a bucket of salt water is thrown on to her back, causing her to shriek loudly. Like the rest of the movie, this scene is artistic and well-done.
Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik-Yak, The - The only whippings in this film are those of some female chariot pullers, and we don't really get to see anything. Still, for bondage fantasy fans, the rest of the film more than makes up for this. Stars the beautiful and beautifully named Tawny Kitain.
Pets - A woman being kept as a man's pet recounts to another woman of the time that he whipped her. She's lying face down on the ground wearing only panties. He whips her bare back with a large bullwhip. Bloody marks appear on her back.

Pink Floyd - The Wall - Quick cuts of a clothed schoolgirl being caned by the headmaster.
Piscine, La - french movie - with Alain Delon, Romy Schneider and Jane Birkin - Alain Delon briefly whips Romy Schnieder with a stick. Delon really likes his stick-whipping, doesn't he (check out "Spirits of the Dead").
Poor Cecily - Has a torture dungeon scene near the end of the film. Cecily is whipped on her back while in a cage. There are some other scenes of girl's getting their backs whipped, but we don't get to see much. The really cool scenes, though, have another girl, then Cecily, tied to a rack and whipped across the front of their bodies. Both of these are long scenes and many marks appear. Their screaming and cries are pretty realistic, too. This is one of the best and most elaborate whipping scenes every committed to film. Features busty legend Usci Digard and the always sexy Sandy Dempsy.
Possessed, The - Many movies by this name. This is the low budget one about an asylum. Has a screaming woman holding some prison bars on the box cover. Has a scene where a hunchback ties an insane woman with her face to the wall. He rips open the back of her shirt and lets about half a dozen good whiplashes fly into her bare back. Bloody lines appea rand overall this is a pretty good scene.
Pretty Baby - Brooke Shields is a child prostitute. When she tries to seduce the black son of one of the servants, the madame decides she needs a lesson and has one of them carry her out to the woodshed for a strapping. You hear the sound of 10 lashes and a couple small yelps, then Brooke comes stalking out and yells "It didn't even hurt!". When she turns to go, you can see that her nightgown is torn over her butt. Brooke does a nude scene in the film and she was only about 12 or 13 years old at the time. Naughty Hollywood, shame on you.
Prison de Mujeres - Brief scene with a female inmate hanging and naked, as a female guard is whipping her.
Prison Heat - Toward the end of this Asian women-in-prison "pink" film, two women are tied in fairly elaborate bondage on the floor of a dungeon and bullwhipped by a dominatrix guard. Most of the whipping shots are from a long ways off, except for a couple of hits to the front of one of the women. Pretty good scene in an otherwise lackluster WIP flick.
Prisoner of Paradise (1978) XXX - On a dangerous mission, John stumbles upon a secret German prison camp. The Nazis have been kidnapping beautiful native girls and using them for their bizarre sexual desires. However the 2 women whipped in this film are captured army nurses. First whipping scene sounds nasty but you don't see much , the second is much better and you can actually see the force of the whip against her bottom.
Prisoners of the Lost Universe - Slave girl is whipped off-screen. She is later shackled up and left to die.
Punishment of Anne, The (aka The Image, The Mistress and the Slave) - Contains 2 very long and powerful scenes. A man she has been impolite to is seated in an arm chair. Ann is told by her mistress to strip, select a whip, is chained kneeling at the chair and whipped extensively as the man watches her reactions. A later scene is in a dungeon where Ann strips completely, wrists are tied overhead is tortured with needles by mistress then thoroughly whipped with a cat by the same man. This in one of those really good scenes that are few and far apart.
Punition - (Ausgepeitscht, Karin Schubert) What a great german title for a lousy film! Only one short whipping in the whole film, but Karen Schubert is always a pleasure to look at.
Quando i Califfi Avevano le Corna - it's a comedy with three scenes: in first and second a Caliph whips the girls he married the day before, to kill them the day after (like in "One thousand and one night tales"), they are nude; in the third scene another Caliph orders two prostitutes to be flogged with one hundred and ten lashes on bare bottom, while tied to a column: we get to see only nine lashes.
Queen Kelly - Erich Von Stroheim's unfinished masterpiece has a scene where the title character, played by Gloria Swanson, is whipped out of a castle by an evil queen.
Queen of SM - also known as "Bondage Fantasia." This Japanese bondage anthology has a couple of whipping scenes. In one, we see a nude woman tied to a tree being whipped. The best one has a nude woman tied to a chair being whipped with a belt. This is one of the better Japanese SM movies, as it is basically a "greatest hits" of various tortures.
Quills - Madelaine (Kate Winslet) gets whipped for helping the Marquis DeSade smuggle out his writings. The whipping itself is poorly shot, but we get to see a long shot of her marked back afterwards. Later, there's a scene with her getting the marks on her back treated.
Quo Vadis? (an italian version from 1912) - like every movie version of this famous novel, there's a scene where a beautiful slave is whipped, but unfortunatly we see only the shadows on a wall.
Ramrodder, The -An Indian girl is stripped naked, tied to a tree, and whipped. This is a long and excellent scene featuring a beautiful Kathy Williams who has a superb body.. The sound is weaker than we would like but the scene is among the best of the era. In color so it’s easy to see that whip marks cover her back and ass.
Rat Island - Typical women in prison sleaze also known as "Island Women." This has a couple of brief whipping scenes - though neither of them are anything special.
Rent-a-Girl - Near the end of a film, a dominatrix is blackmailed by two other girls. They first paddle her, then they unzip the back of her dress and whip her back. Many marks appear on her body. After the whipping, we see the woman painfully crawl to the bathroom. B&W

One of these villains is a photographer rich and famous, that likes sadistic scenes. She offers herself as a model and is chained totally bared in a dungeon and whipped by two assistants; A very long but largely unrealistic whipping.
Rififi - Movie about a jewel heist gone awry. A decent film with a scene where a woman's dress is pulled down to expose her upper back and reveal the belt marks that her 'lover' gave her.
Robin Hood - Uncut 1922 version with Douglas Fairbanks. Has a whipping scene with one of the female citizens of Nottingham getting 4 or 5 lashes on her bare back after the new sheriff comes to town. Pretty bare and pretty graphic, especially considering the time.
Rollerblade 7 - Has a scene where a girl is whipped on her bottom while being held against prison bars.
The Roundup - Hungary 1965. A naked female prisoner is caned to death in a Hungarian prison.
Sacred Flesh - This artsy-fartsy 2000 production is a throwback to the lesbian nun movies of the seventies, with way too much pretension and not nearly enough sleaze. Still, there are a couple of decent (but brief) whipping scenes. In one, a nun flogs herself bloody. In a later scene, one nun whips another across her naked back.
Sahara - Brooke Shields gets a couple of lashes from John Rhys-Davies off-screen.
Salo - the last movie by Pasolini: there are several scenes of whipping, both male and female. The is one strange and illusionary film that defies accurate description.
Samson and the Seven Miracles - Good whipping scene. A beautiful young princess is tied to a whipping post, stripped to the waist and flogged across her bare back with at least 7 or 8 lashes (on camera) she then has salt water applied to her wounds with a feather. The entire scene is shot from the front. Great facial expressions and very believable screams.
Sankofa - This African film supposedly has whippings of both male and female slaves. The film is actually more social commentary than entertainment.
Sarah Balabagan Story, The - This true story concerns the Filipino maid sentenced to death in the United Arab Emirates circa 1993/4 and pardoned by President Sheikh Zayed Ibn Sultanal-Nahayan - but not before she had been given 100 strokes of the cane. The film was banned by President Ramos in the Filipines because the UAE protested that it showed their justice system in a bad light and it threatened diplomatic relations! A spokesman for Ramos at the time said that " the scene where Miss Balabagan was given 100 lashes was overdone because it showed a burly male guard flogging her with a large stick - ordinarily, if the inmate is female, then a female guard will perform the lashing" That explains it all.
Satan's Slave - The main character has a flashback to a priest (played by the film's author David McGillvray) presiding over the whipping of a supposed witch. The whipping is brutal and the woman's breasts are shown in the whipping shots. Quite shocking and exploitative but great fun.
Scacco alla Regina – Reputed to contain a female whipping scene.
Schoolgirl Hitchhikers - A young woman is whipped with a switch on her front, threatened with a hot iron, has her hair and clothes cut off and then has a pair of tongs taken to her until she faints. The marks on her body appear quite realistic?
Scream Street (aka A Scream in the Streets) - A man in a massage parlor attacks the massage girl with a belt. He gets a few good whacks on her ass, then she starts running around and he ends up whipping her into a corner before police arrive.
Secret Sex Lives of Romeo & Juliet - This ribald sex comedy has a nice whipping scene. A cute girl with short hair is shackled naked as a man bullwhips her. The man overseeing the whipping orders it to continue. However, when he leaves, the whipper whips a long board instead - though the girl continues screaming as if she is really being whipped. It's a ridiculous scene, but not without its charm.
Secrets of Love -(segment titled The Spanking) Very attractive young woman is caned in this period piece, first by the male head of the household, then by her lover. 18 strokes are given to her bare bottom as she stands against the wall and are counted out by the woman of the house. Later the woman's bare bottom is caned by her husband.
Seduction: The Cruel Woman - Woman briefly whipped in a bathtub by her female lover. The scene has a strangely hypnotic feel to it.
Seven Miles from Alcatraz - Another 40's anti-Nazi pic with Bonita Granville (from "Hitler's Children") in another whipping scene. This time she's pinned to a steel girder and lashed with a heavy electrical cable by a female spy. She's fully clothed and not a hair out of place, manages to look mildly distressed, but patriotic! Were guessing that this gal had a 3-lash-saved-by-the-hero clause in her studio contract, or mayby the same screen-writer.
Sex and Zen - There is a great whipping scene in this one. A Man whips his lover after she claims that she loves her husband as she gets whipped by him every day. The rest of the story is good too. There are plenty of sex scenes. There is also is Sex and Zen II and III !. (The English version has the Whipping scene shortened... See the Cantonese one to get the full uncut scene.)
Sexual Adventures of Cleopatra(?) - One of Cleopatra’s servants is accused of treason. She is made to walk on all fours between two rows of other beautiful servants wielding cat-o-nine-tail whips. She whipped all the way through and she reacts quite beautifully. Marks appear all over her back and buttocks until she reaches the other end where Cleopatra is sitting on her throne. Later we see her kneeling in front of Cleopatra begging for mercy and we can see her marked back.
Shachor - an Israeli film 1994/1995 - there is a strapping scene given on the bottom to a young girl (partially seen) .
Shadow of the Eagle - Officials try to force a Noblewoman into signing a false confession that would eradicate her heritage. She refuses, and is whipped for he defiance. We see her tied with her arms in the air. The back of her dress is then ripped open. Unfortunately, it's all downhill from there. We never hear her scream, and we never see the lash hit. Oh, well - it's no surprise since the movie was made in 1950.
Shadow Killers - Horrible chop-socky number has some spliced in scenes from the awful “Girls in Tiger Cage”. Some very weak spanking and whipping, kept mostly off-screen.
She - The color rock and roll retelling of the classic tale with the super sexy Sandhal Bergman. Has a scene in which she and another girl are chained with their backs to wooden crosses. They are then flogged with a cat o' nine tails across the front of their bodies. The whippings are good but the movie is not. Their both wearing skimpy amazon garb, but no real nudity is on display in that scene although it is still quite sexy and Sandahl is nude in an earlier bathing scene.
She-Demons - A woman is whipped by a Nazi in this black-and-white bore. We don't get to really see any of the whipping, just the end of it. She dies, as does the rest of the film.
She-Wolf of Spillburg - A soldier holds a woman while a female commandant whips her back and buttocks with a short whip. No marks appear, but the whipped women does writhe quit a bit.
Ship of Lost Women aka Ship of Condemned Women or Ship of Lost Souls? - An Italian film (originally: La Nave Delle Donne Maldette), that unfortunately does not live up to its title. Story about a ship transporting criminal women does contain a couple of whipping scenes, but they are both brief, and nothing like the poster for the film.
Shooter, The -This Michael Dudikoff vehicle has a scene similar to "Django." A prostitute has the back of her blouse ripped off and is whipped by bad guys until Dudikoff comes along and spoils their fun by blowing them all away. This is also probably the only film in the database starring country singer Randy Travis .
Shotgun - Two scenes , first a woman takes off ther blouse to show whip marks, second prostitude is whipped on bed , don't actually see the whipping.
Sign of the Cross - Christians, including many women, are goaded with whips to the coliseum at the end of the film.
Sinful Dwarf, The - A kidnapped woman is whipped by the title character while the villainess sings. She is naked and writhes around quite a bit. A little blood appears on her, but it's very fake looking. But the victim is a babe and the scene is pretty good overall.
Sinful Nuns of St. Valentine, The - Recently re-released. This has a scene toward the beginning where a nun, kneeling on the ground, is whipped by her mother superior. The whipping is all shown from the front, and much of it is in long shot and hard to see.
Sister Streetfigher - a woman gets hung up by her heels and whipped. Unfortunately, she's fully clothed.
Slammer Girls - Bad WIP comedy has an off-screen whipping scene.
Slave of the Sword - In this neat little Asian number, a woman is whipped after biting the ear off of a man she was forced to have sex with. Nothing is shown in this one except her reactions. Later, though, she takes revenge and gets to whip the woman that whipped her. This time the victim is tied with her hands above her head. She is naked to the waist and we do get to see the whip marks on her back briefly. Very much worth a look.
Slaves in Cages - This film is absolutely loaded with whipping scenes. For the most part, though, they're done in a rather fake slow motion. Furthermore, marks never appear on our poor victims. There's always got to be a catch, doesn't there? By the way, the film's about a rich playboy that kidnaps women to use in a show for his freinds. At least this film is somewhat more entertaining than the similar "Bloodsucking Freaks." In glorious Black and White.
Slaves of Sheba - A young woman is tied face down on a rack with her bare feet in the air. A man then tortures her briefly by whipping the soles of her feet. This is in black-and-white, and cheap, but is a neat little scene.
Snake People, The - One of Boris Karloff's last films - Mexican I think. Again, low budget but nice scene of a young Mexican woman being whipped by a dwarf. (Seems this is all part of a Voodoo-like ritual, with lots of cult-followers looking on). A decent scene overall.
Space Thing - A female crew mate is unrealistically whipped by her female commander because "men are off limits". The girl is face down on a bed and is whipped on her back and ass. There is a bit of blood on her back.
Spara Joe... e Coso S ia! (Shoot Joe...and Amen!) - Italian spagetti-western. Actress Franca Polesello is a prostitute stripped naked and whipped by a gang, to not be payed for her "services".

Spirits of the Dead (aka Histoiries Extraordinaires) - Bridgit Bardot is whipped by Alain Delon after she loses a card game to him. He undoes the back of her dress and beats her bare back with a thin stick as another man holds her tightly. A few marks appear on her back, and her writhing is a joy to behold. A good scene that should be checked out by all, now that the thing is finally on video in a beautiful letterboxed print.
Spiteful Woman - Asian film has female flogging.
Split Second With Caged Women - Has a fairly lengthy scene in which a woman, tied face to the wall, is bullwhipped by a prison guard. The whipping is pretty tame, and the marks that appear are too.
Spymaker - This film is about Ian Fleming's real life adventures. In one scene, he discovers a woman who has been whipped on her back by the bad guy. Nothing special.
SS Extermination Camp (aka SS Campo de Extermino, Women's Camp 119) - Two women are stripped, chained up, and whipped as punishment by a commandant. Neither of the women are very attractive, but the scene is rather realistic.
SS Girls - (1978) Another Nazi sex camp ,where women are trained to please the Nazis. 3 minor scenes in this one all in the same sequence.
Star Slammer - Two girls are put into a metal contraption and paddled on their bottoms. Only get to see their reactions, though.
Starlet - An actress is put in stocks and whipped on the set of a movie. Played for laughs, and pretty lame - though the girl is cute.
Stigmata - Patricia Arquette is phantom-whipped (you have to see it to understand) on a subway car. Afterwards we see her in a hospital getting the lash marks treated. The scene is most unusual and the film overall disturbing.
Stormquest - At the beginning of the film, three beautiful warrior women are excommunicated from their group. They are tied to posts and have one shoulder of their dresses ripped off. Then they are lashed. Overall quite a good scene.
Storm Warning - (US 1950, by Daniel Fuchs and Richard Brooks, b/w) Ginger Rogers accidentially witnesses a murder by Klansmen. When she intends to inform the police, she is kidnapped by Klan members and taken to one of their secret meetings in the woods. They threaten her with punishment, but she does not give in . Surrounded by the white-hooded men and illuminated by a burning cross, she is held tight with spread arms, facing another man with a long horsewhip 2 meters in front of her. The chief announces the flogging with a megaphone. Then she is given 7 lashes ( 5 on screen, showing her front). The whip hits her shoulders, but is long enough to curl around her chest. She is fully clothed, but the cracks are so sharp that you could "feel" the welts beneath her clothes. Painful moaning . Of course, the hero comes to rescue her much too early. - Nice threatening atmosphere, with the chief like a judge in an old-fashioned court.
Story of a Cloistered Nun -A young nun is tied topless with her arms spread out and is whipped on her back for leaving her room at night. Nice scene. Afterwards she is taken down and we get to see the whip marks. We also see another nun treating the whip marks on her back.
Story of O - (France 197? , by Just Jaeckin): A classic one which you might know already. Beautiful young woman Corinne Clery agrees to do anything which her boyfriend demands from her. Several well-done whippings. She is brought to a secret chateau where she is stripped completely, hands tied above her head, then receives several lashes with a riding crop. You see the pain and excitement in her face, and short shots of her back and butt when the crop comes down. You hear the sharp lashing sound and her moaning.
Later in the film she is tied topless between 2 posts in a room and whipped by another woman whom she had cheated in a game. This time you see her front and face only, but it is also a long well-done scene with good sound. The uncut French version is much better than the German one owing to the ongoing penance they are paying for the WW2 atrocities. There is also another scene where a maid beats Corinne off-screen, and we later see her tied between two posts with several whip-marks across the front of her body. And there is yet another scene in which the woman that beats Corinne for cheating is beaten by her.
Story of O (Brazil) - I think just about every one of the programs in this series has a flogging scenein it. The actress playing O is quite lovely, though the acting is quite atrocious. Well worth a look.
Story of O Part II - In this stupid movie that has nothing to do with the original, 'O' has the back of her dress unzipped and allows a man to whip her back with a thin stick. Short scene and her back is never fully shown. Afterward, she utters the immortal line "I measure power not by the blows you can give, but by the blows you can take."
Strangler in the Tower - We briefly see the aftermath of a whipping. A woman has been whipped for information by a secret cult. On of the cult members covers her whipped back with a cloak, and she winces in pain.
Summer Heat - European movie. Boy dreams about punishing his mother who is dressed up as a naughty school girl. Weird little flick, but great looking women.
Super Ball - Simular to the movie "Starlet" . Crew making a low budget sex film. whipping scene is pretty fake but the chick is good looking and totally nude.
Superchick - Big-breasted Ushi Digart is whipped naked on the set of a movie. Whip marks cover her back and buttocks. Nice scene, even though it is a film-within-a-film thing.
Susana - A young brat is thrashed with a whip in this Luis Bunuel film.
Sweet Sugar - Phylis Davis is tied spread-eagle to a couple of posts. A guard then takes a bullwhip and lashes at her back. Unfortunately he is stopped, and the whipping never continues.
Sword of El Cid - (Spain/Italy 1965, by Miguel Iglesias) A typical "sword-and-knight" movie with a good scene in a forest. Chantal Deberg (beautiful, long black hair) and Iliana Grimaldi (blonde) are trapped by the 2 villains. Each of them is tied standing to a big tree by knotting leather straps around the wrists and than around the tree. Faces to the trees, arms slightly raised. The dresses are torn open leaving the backs naked. The men take long leather thongs from their riding equipment and fasten their spurs at the ends (to increase the weight and impact). Then they ride their horses in circles. Each time they pass the trees, the quickly weilded thongs hit the bare backs sharply. Some lashes on-screen, mostly showing Deberg's face and back, with bleeding weals. Her head moves back with each lash.
Sword of the Barbarians - (aka Barbarian Master) A woman is briefly whipped at a whipping post.
Tai-Pan - An Asian girl is whipped off-screen. A door opens and we see her whipped back. A couple of girls take her down and immediately start treating the wounds. Nice whip marks, but the scene is very brief.
Tank - Jennilee Harrison gets a belt whipping from the sheriff. She's in bed in her trailer and after a short lecture, the sheriff orders her to pull up her shirt and pull down her panties. Five lashes are shown on camera, but the angle is from by her face, so you don't actually see her butt or any marks, but you do see the sheriff swing the belt.
Tarzan and The Slave Girl - A slave is sentenced to 20 lashes, of which none are seen and only 3 are heard. The couple of marks on her back go away quick.

Three Bad Sisters - Kathleen Hughs takes a riding crop to sister Marla English's face in a scary scene.
Three Came Home - Brief scene where a middle-aged woman is beaten with a stick by a guard. Don't see anything, though.
Three Pirates, The - Starring Mai Britt from La Nave della donne Maldette and Yolanda. Like the other two, this film is also purported to have a flogging scene.
Thrill of the Vampires - Has a lengthy scene in which two naked women are chained up and whipped. The writhing and moans do not match the stroke of the whip at all. A Jean Rollin misfire.
Throne of Fire (aka The Bloody Judge, Night of the Blood Monster) - The Jess Franco witch-torture film with Christopher Lee has a scene where a woman is whipped on her back. We only get to see this happen from the front, though. Later, we get a brief glimpse of her whip marks. There are a couple of other brief scenes. Not to be confused with the Sabrina Saini fantasy of the same name, which has no whippings in it.
Tor - (1964) Medieval barbarian endeavors to free an enslved village. Woman is brought in front of a group and given 5 lashes.

See more now.Tortured Females - Cheap 60's grindhouse flick has some weak whippings of cute women that can't act. Similar to the Olga films, as the whips miss by a mile and the marks either don't appear or look way off. Watching this movie all the way through without hitting fast-forward will lull you to sleep.
Tower of London - The 60's version starring Vincent Price has a scene in which we see the side view of a girl's back that has been savagely lashed. The girl is later murdered, and revisits Price in spirit form. She shows him her back and asks him "Is it not attractive, as a woman's back should be?"
Triumph of the Spirit - Willem Dafoe's girlfriend is whipped after she tries to steal a piece of bread from a near dead inmate in a concentration camp.

Trottoirs De Bankok, Les - Yoko (not Ono), a very small Asian woman, is chained with her hands abover her head nude in a dungeon. A woman whips her with a crop all over her back for a very long time. We get to see her reactions, and after the whipping we get to see her back. It’s a very good scene.

Unconquered - Paulette Goddard is tied with her hands above her head, has the back of her shirt ripped off, and is almost whipped. Could have been a great scene. In the book this is based on the character really does get whipped (it still gets stopped, but after a few lashes). Cecil B. DeMille must have wimped out. Big disappointment, and the movie's terrible too.
Up From Slavery - A black slave girl is prepared for a whipping. Unfortunately, the whipping itself is off-screen.
Ursus Nella Terra di Fuoco - the scene is fake but not bad (it'is about a queen who, before a coup d'etat, was a slave that whips a prisoner. The scene islong and a little violent with several lashes. After we have a brief view of the red-welted back.

He only gets to give her one stroke before the cops break in and rescue her.
Videodrome - In David Cronenberg's confusing masterwork there are several whipping scenes of women. Unfortunately, they all take place on a television screen with blurry reception. A couple of really good scenes, though. Supposedly one of the women got really into it, according to a Cronenberg interview. James Woods stars with Debra Harry (Blondie) who gets whipped while on television by Woods who is not? Weird but fun.
Viking Queen, The - The title character (played by one-named actress Carita) is taken into the center of the village and suspendfed from the back of a cart. The bad guy then tears off the top of her dress, grabs her hair and places it in front of her shoulders. He then orders another man to flog her with a heavy cat o' nine tails on her bare back. The whipping shots are from afar, but pretty realistic. Later in the scene, she is taken down. She falls to the ground and we get a good look at her bloody whipped back. A good scene.

War Victims of the Torture Masters – Click for more information. Very Graphic!

Waxwork - Towards the end of this film there is a scene in which The Marquis DeSade has Deborah Forman chained up. The back of her dress is pulled open by two women, and she is heavily bullwhipped. Marks appear, but they are light compared to the actual punishment she is supposedly receiving. Still this is an intense scene. Deborah's squirming and begging the Marquis to beat her more are a joy to behold. The rest of the film isn't bad, either.
War Is Hell – A beautiful prisoner of war is tortured and whipped to get her to divulge some secret information. Pretty bloody scene from a clip vid.

She is clothed at first but he ends up whipping part of the back of her dress off so we can see the marks. She kills him later in the film, but his spirit returns to flog her a second time. This time she's lying on a bed and wearing a bodice, but by the end of the scene it's completely whipped off her and Lee's spirit is lashing at her flinching bare back. Great scene in an excellent horror movie by Italian maestro Mario Bava (under the psuedonym "John M. Old").
Wicked Lady, The - Faye Dunaway and Marina Sirtis (yep, Troi from Star Trek: The Next generation) go at each other with long bullwhips.

A great scene in a lousy movie.

A nice scene and Greer was at the top of her game in terms of her physical beauty.
Women of Hell's Island - A black woman is tied to a triangle, has the back of her shirt ripped off, and is publicly bullwhipped. Short, quickly cut scene. Unrealistic sound and screams, and we don't really get to see anything. Later, she is taken down and she painfully tries to crawl to her bed, which another girl helps her do. In this scene we get to see a few shot of her bloody back, but its not very real looking.

Star of Dave (Dabade Star, Hitler Was My Hero) - Each episode (there are four) has a whipping scene, I think. Here are the one in the first two. Episode One: A man whips his tied a wife, while a child watches. Episode Two: This child grows up and kidnaps a young singer. In one scene he whips her while clothed and on all fours. In another one, he ties her up, strips her naked, and whips her all over her body for trying to escape. Grim and ugly, this one is not to be taken lightly - and the animation is rotten to boot. Episodes three and four have similar whipping scenes.

Only a few strokes by each one before he is briefly electrotortured. Only face reactions and whipping action from one side. Never see the whip on his back. Later, when he escapes, we see very briefly some faint marks on his back. Too bad.
Amazons of Rome (aka Slaves of Carthage) - There are also some male whipping scenes in this one.
American Ninja 4 - David Bradley and a young black actor take the whip, having infiltrated a sort of Arab-IndoChinese terrorist organisation. Bradley is stripped to the waist and stoic as he takes the whip; the black actor is in a tank top and much more demonstrative. Michael Dudikoff, by the way, appears later in the film to rescue them. There is also a scene near the beginning where we see some dead soldiers with whipped backs on camera.
Amistad - The flashback scenes from the slaves' Atlantic crossing, shows a very brutal whipping onboard the ship. The shot begins with blood being washed away from the deck below the victim, followed by sounds of the whip and the agonized moans of the victim. The whip used was not a cat I think. The emphasis here is on the brutality of the whipping in the context of the overall inhumanities of the slave trade, rather than whipping as part of some masculine trial of endurance like so many other films. Later the main character (Cinque) is shown being 'lightly' whipped while watching other chained slaves being thrown overboard. He is being held up by a crew member while another whips him with what looks like a small, thin whip.

Beau Geste - starring Telly Savales features a French Foreign Legion flogging. Actor Guy Stockwell is punished in front of the entire company. He's shirtless and tied to a flogging post.

Billy Budd - A couple of naval floggings.
Black Magic - Toward the beginning of this 1940s film with Orson Welles, a young gypsy boy is tied up and flogged for biting a public official after his parents have been sentenced to death. The camera mostly shows his upper body from the front, though there is one far shot of his back. His torturers are about to gouge out his eyes when he is rescued by his uncle.
Black Velvet Band - four convicts are being deported to Tasmania and one is whipped on the way for stealing an officer's watch (he's actually taking the blame to spare his friend). He pulls off his shirt (he's rather portly) and stands against the grating. We see him get one stroke from the front and then the camera focuses on his friends faces as he gets a few more. In the next scene, he's being tended to and the marks on his back look very realistic.
Birth of a Nation - D.W. Griffith's controversial masterwork has a scene of a slave being flogged briefly.
Black Pirate, The - Italian actor Terence Hill, the pirate captured by the woman he first catched on sea and then released, is tied shirtless in a room of the forteress husband's woman, his hands together roped to a ring in wall, and bullwhip by a guard while the woman watches. We see only once the lash on his back. Fake black marks on his skin. Very short scene.

Brubaker - A black man is chosen at random, tied to the prison bars, so everyone can see. His pants are pulled down and he is hit with the biggest strap I ever saw. You see the bare ass, you see one or two lashes. You see lots of close-ups of his face, as he nearly goes intoepileptic fit. He does a great performance, drool - the whole bit. By the way, he is whipped as an example for the other cons to behave.
C.A.T.Squad:Python Wolf - An american air force officier (Jack Youngblood, the ex-football player) and his crew are capture by white africaner terrorist in South Africa, and taken to a secret labor camp for interrogation.

Captain Blood - This classic tale of an innocent English doctor sent into tropical slavery for aiding a rebel has 3 floggings -- 1) a minor unnamed character is seen being whipped at a post; he still has a shirt on, and is not seen close-up; 2) Jeremy Pitt (played by Ross Alexander) is beaten by a pliable rod of some sort while tied to a post, with a torn shirt mostly off; later, Peter Blood (Errol Flynn) comes to his aid. These are two fairly detailed scenes (with closeups of Pitt's back & face). The actual flogging is only available in the restored version, made most recently. 3) For his aid, Blood is tied to the same post, facing forward, and receives one hit of the rod before a "timely interruption" occurs. For such a classic movie, the violence is mild, probably because of the wave of self-censorship that hit Hollywood in the mid-30s.
Captain Sinbad - Guy Williams is whipped with his shirt on.
Carbine Williams - An old Jimmy Stewart movie. His character is sentenced to a chain gang. We see the prisoners gathered at the end of a work day to witness the punishment of one of their group. The victim (not Stewart) is stripped to the waist and tied to a wooden frame. He is flogged on his bare back with a strap. After he is taken down, we see his welt covered back as the guards drag him away.
Cardinal, The - Tom Tyron is abducted by Klansmen one night who tear off his shirt and try to make him spit on a crucifix. He refuses and so they bullwhip him while he stands there, unbound, holding the cross. We see the lash curl around his shoulder with each stroke. The next morning, he wakes up lying face down and we get a good view of his back which does look like it's been bullwhipped. He wanders around for a while, disorientated, with his shirt in tatters round his waist until a passer-by comes to his aid.
Cervantes - 1968 with a very cute Horst Buchholtz strung up and whipped by the Moors in a dungeon midway through the movie, then placed on the rack later in the movie.

We mainly see faces of onlookers as 20 lashes are inflicted. Shot of his bloodied back. Brief scene later on showing back of another flogged man.
Chino - The scene starts with a shot of Bronson laying face down, shirtless in the dirt, both arms stretched in front of him. You can see a rope around each wrist. The punisher, who is an upper-class land-owning father of the woman Bronson, a half-breed, has secretly courted, nods his head and suddenly you see two men on horses begin a fast trot. Each holds an end of one of the ropes, which you now see have been strung over a gate post frame. The action drags Bronson across the dirt, then straight up, and then hanging by his hands off the ground - a great bondage punishment in itself. Another man behind Bronson starts to bullwhip him methodically and brutally. Much of what you see is from the front. Very realistic. Bronson's reactions are a little stoic, but you see him suffering. Very few, if any, shots from the back. The father finally gives the order to stop and tells Bronson that if he sees his daughter again, "Next time I won't tell them to stop." Bronson's adopted teenage son (the only onlooker other then the ranch hands of the landowner)looks on helplessly the entire time. After, the son takes his agonized father face down in a wagon to the camp of the Indians, who nurse Bronson back to health. There are shots of his torn back being treated.

Count of Monte Cristo, The - The 2002 version of this story has a couple of whipping scenes. Both are of the main character, played by Jim Caviezel, being whipped in prison. The first scene is his whipping as he enters prison, and the second scene is of one of his "anniversary" whippings. We also see scars on the back of Richard Harris' character and briefly see him whipped in a flashback, if my memory serves me correctly - which it usually doesn't.
Crimson Blade, The- The leader of the people's revolt is captured and whipped by his girlfriend's nasty father.
Crimson Pirate, The - this Burt Lancaster swashbuckler has a very brief scene where a rather old pirate is flogged in a dungeon hung up by his wrists. We only see one stroke of the whip hit his back so the scene is a bit disappointing.
Damn the Defiant -This British film (original title: H.M.S. Defiant) has two floggings. The first involves Johnny Briggs, a common seaman, getting two dozen of the cat from two bosuns while tied to the grating. All 24 strokes are heard, but the camera scans the whole boat, and most of the back shots are blocked by bodies & other objects. The second is to a more prominent actor, Tom Bell, who is a leader in the incipient mutiny. This time, most of the action is off the deck, but it is topped off, when the two dozen are completed, Bell turns to Dirk Bogarde, overseeing the punishment, and strains to shouts: "Enjoy yourself?" His cheek gets him two dozen more after the fade out.
Danger Zone - A member of a gang of bikers and drug dealers is stripped to the waist, tied up to a T post, and bullwhipped by the chief of the gang for stealing a small quantity of drugs for his own use. Mainly face reactions but few good shoots from the side and from far.

After many lashes the girl speaks and the guy is released and falls on the ground (for a good but brief view of his bleeding back). Mainly close ups on face reactions and some from far front shots.
Dawn of Victory, The - A 1974 film set in Greece. A handsome young man who joined his brother as a revolutionary was captured. The next scene shows him being chained to a wall shirtless and whipped. The whipping is short, but the whip marks look good. About the partisan guerrillas on Crete during WWII.

Desert Legion - A dark and somewhat handsome legionnaire named Lopez is captured by the "enemy" after he has advanced ahead of his company. As the scene opens he is being whipped for information. We get to see front and side views only. The leader then comes in and when Lopez does not respond to his request for information the leader : "Aha, the brave and silent soldier; We'll see how long you can stay brave and silent". The whipping continues as the scene fades out. Later, we see a good shot of Lopez' striped back as Alan Ladd the leader look on after he has passed out. He is then cut down and dragged away by two guards. In a later scene his welts are being tended to in a dungeon of sorts and he seems just fine. Later on in the movie he is riding through the desert alongside Alan Ladd and he seems in excellent condition.
Desert Renegades -Three men are captured in the desert. In the next scene we see them being tied shirtless to whipping posts and being whipped. The whipping is quite long as the three characters get whipped at the same time.

The vampire bit comes sometime later in the film although we do learn early on that Chris is the son of Vlad the Impaler. He befriends a beautiful young girl but only to help her with her faith or something like that. However, his friend and fellow monk says that Chris must tame his flesh and he will be glad to help him. The friend points out that Chris must always do extra penance because of his evil father. The next scene opens with the crack of a whip on flesh. Several more cracks are heard before the camera pans in on Chris, stripped to the waist, kneeling before some wooden apparatus in the monastery courtyard. His friend is flogging him while the other monks watch. A number of lashes are on film and he lets out only a muffled cry each time the whip lands. We see several good shots of his back which is covered with bloody welts. Some days or weeks later we see him shirtless again but there are no signs of the whipping.
Dragonard - At the beginning, a black slave is whipped for stealing a comb . Whipping is long and bloody, and we get to see a lot of it.

He miraculously survives, and we later see him getting his whip marks treated in a house of ill repute.

In one of these sequences, a man is whipped by a beautiful woman while everyone looks on.

The head guard tells him, "Get it off, liar." The prisoner tears off his shirt. Next scene his wrists are tied to a hook high above his head. He receives several lashes onscreen before his buddies break out and rescue him. A true whipping classic.

The bad guy tells his two cronies to "Take off his shirt and stand him over there." They take off Mitchum's shirt and stand him against a pillar as the other guy takes off his thick belt. He gives Mitchum 3 lashes before Mitchum falls to the floor. Short whipping but a good scene.
House of the Spirits - Antonio Banderas tries to incite his fellow workers to strike against patron Jeremy Irons; Irons comes along, sends the workers off, orders Antonio to take off his shirt, and personally whips him (arms outstretched and grasped by his father). The focus is on Antonio's face as he grimly Withstands his pain. This ranks high on the star flogging scale.
How Green Was My Valley - Roddy McDowell whipped off-screen by his teacher.

Island of Doomed Men - 1940 B Warners movie, with Peter Lorre, who runs a tropical island slave-labor camp infiltrated by crusading young reporter Robert Wilcox, (a darkly handsome, muscular young actor) who in the second of the on-screen floggings is tied shirtless to a wooden post and whipped by a guard. Like other studio floggings, the focus is on the tightly bound torso straining against the beating; the nice touch here is that Wilcox struggles throughout to keep talking to the guard to get him to join his rebellion! Back in his shack, some medication is applied, but little is seen.
Jack Be Nimble - A boy's stern father whips him with a long stick, if I remember correctly. I think the boy was clothed, but later in the film we get to see the scars. This is a very well done, and very strange, Aussie horror film.
Jailhouse Rock - For hitting two guards, convict Elvis is tied to an overhead pipe, shirtless, and flogged by another guard with a strap. No shots of his back, we get to see his reaction to three of the lashes while they are laid on. Back in his cell, his back is covered by a jacket while cellmate Mickey Shaunnessy apologizes for not having the money to pay for grease for his welts. Surprisingly little sympathy is wasted on Elvis here, whose character is surly and selfish most of the movie before he redeems himself. Elvis was also flogged off-screen in one of his later, lesser movies, Harum Scarum, where he played a singer captured by an evil prince who wants Elvis to help him capture the throne by using his karate skills
Jesus Christ Superstar - The messiah gets it again in this one, and to music at that!
Jesus of Montreal - In the flagellation scene, our man Lothaire is tied to a tree completely naked and severely whipped by two Roman guards. We see the first two lashes, and Lothaire's vivid reaction to them, close-up. Then we see a few more lashes land across his bare back from a more distant angle. There is quite a bit of "oohing" and "ahhing" on Lothaire's part as well, at least if you turn up the volume.
Johnny Firecloud - The title character gets tied to a fence in a barn, has his shirt ripped off, and is whipped by Ralph Meeker. Bloody marks appear on his back. He is in jail and a guard is treating his wounds in the next scene. He then gets up and walks around and there are lots of shots of his marked back. Later, he gets revenge by tying Meeker up, stripping him to the waist, and whipping him across both the back and front. Then there is a scene of Meeker having his wounds treated.

Kentuckian, The - Bullwhips open and close the flick. It takes place in a town in backwoods Kentucky, ca 1800. Burt Lancaster plays a backwoodsman, widowed, father of a 10-ish kid, both wearing buckskin. It opens in a tavern, where the local bully flicks his lash, shouting 'Who da'st to crack a whip with me?' He threatens to 'cut that buckskin right off' Burt. Burt settles down, working for his cousin, a storekeeper, and wears tight textiles. There's a woman, too. It evolves predictably. In the unpredictable conclusion, the bully's kid attacks Burt's kid with about a six-foot whip. Burt intervenes, taking the kid's lash away. The bully then lashes Burt all over the open space, driving him tantalizingly close to a boulder. Then the lady drives a wagonwheel over the lash, too soon.
Kilma, Queen of the Amazons - A man is tied down shirtless on a rock. His arms held tied in ropes by two men. Another man bullwhips his bare back.

There is also a scene where a man is flogging himself.

The next scene shows him being treated in bed by one of the prisoners. In the other scene, the hero opposes something, annoying the queen. She orders him to be strung up and whipped. Unfortunately, he has his shirt on, although it is only a t-shirt that covers half his body. There are only a few strokes on his back, after which he is taken down and sent to the queen's chamber.

Two boys grab his arms and legs and stretch him out, while the other one whips his back. The entire whipping is on camera, switching between the wild eyes of Jack's lieutenant as he administers the whip, and the boy receiving the whip, as the twists and cries in agony. He later runs off and faint marks can be seen on his back.
Lorna Doone - (1951) which takes place in 1680's England. Richard Greene is a farmer who resists when the evil landlord announces that he is increasing the crop taxes.

Lorna Doone (Barbara Hale) comes up in a carriage and eventually gets the landlord to stop
Los Hijos de Satanes - Jorge Rivero again, flaunting his beautiful body but his buddy Juan Miranda is the victim this time. First Juan is spread-eagled between two posts in an underground cavern. He only gets one lash across the bare chest with a riding crop but it is a long scene for those who like beef in bondage. Then he is taken outside and tied in front of a cannon muzzle, his wrists roped to the gun's wheels. The welt from the lash across the chest is prominently displayed. They are going to shoot the cannon at Jorge who is sneaking around (barechested of course) in a rescue attempt. But Jorge frees him with a bullet that cuts the ropes before the cannonball can go through him. [Jorge made at least one American movie as George Rivero, starring with John Wayne in Rio Lobo.

Maitress - Several real floggings of men, one a very long scene where a naked man is tied facing the wall and having his back and ass lashed.

Man Who Broke 1,000 Chains, The - Val Kilmer is whipped several times in this remake of I am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang. In one he is tied spread eagle, stripped to the waist, in between two trees. If you're a Kilmer fan, you will definitely want to give this made-for-cable movie a look.
Man Who Shot Liberty Valence, The - Lee Marvin.
Manhunt - from the same director as Operation Nam, the object of the whip's attention is John Ethan Wayne (yep, the Duke's son) as a wrongly convicted prisoner who escapes an Arizona prison.

Mutiny on the Bounty - All versions of this film have naval floggings in them.
Myra Breckenridge – This dreadful film ruins ones memories of Gore Vidal's hilarious novel. It supposedly has a scene where John Huston is whipped.
Naked in the Sun - A man is tied tightly to a tree and is whipped with a bullwhip on his bare back. Marks appear, but they are faint and nothing at all like what they would be in reality. Then again, movies aren't reality, are they?
The Name of the Rose - A Benedictine brother (rather corpulent and repulsive) flogs himself in the privacy of his room in penance for being attracted to a young monk (Christian Slater).

One Man's Hero - Tom Berenger's Sergeant Riley, an exemplary career-soldier and loyal Irish-American, has evaded the Army's desire to hang him (in the climactic final scenes), and is instead sentenced to 50 lashes and branding as a deserter in this tale of the San Patricio batallion whose brave soldiers fought for freedom for Mexico in the Mexican-American war. The scene begins: "39!" sounded from the lips of the shirtless muscular flogger. Berenger kneels at the whipping post. His Irish patriots helped by Riley in their escape from American Army persecution because they were "fresh off the boat, and Catholic," are forced to watch. Berenger had shepherded and stayed with them through their terrible predicament after rescuing them from discrimination and lashing suffered at the beginning of the film (an earlier flogging scene shows six men trussed to the wheels. Only one is being whipped the youngest and he is crying. His back shows the marks of some 15 lashes. Berenger's Riley, releasing them, rides into the night towards their terrible predicament and uncertain fate). Back to the whipping scene: One of Riley's men collapses. Another vomits. By stroke number 45, Riley's back is a mass of blood and we wonder how he could still be conscious. It's pretty realistic. Berenger utters an oath before the last stroke of the whip (a multi-strap instrument) and with it his head falls upon his sweat-drenched chest. The branding is still to come. This film, despite its attempt to satisfy multi-demographics (there is a peripheral love interest for Berenger wonderfully realized with great dignity by Spanish actress Daniela Romo - and a major supporting character, a thief and outlaw, played by Joaquim de Almeida), conveys the ideals of honor, loyalty, and bravery that satisfies in any good war film. Inherited by MGM from defunct Orion pictures, it was initially buried as "anti-American." Due to an Internet Berenger-fan-outcry a minor war itself - MGM recanted to finally release it to a limited theatrical run.
One Eyed Jacks - A bandit character played by Marlon Brando is tied, armed stretched out, to a hitching post by his former gang partner and now respectable sheriff, a character played by Karl Malden. Malden uses the pretext of Brando having just shot a guy in a saloon brawl to publicly punish him; the real reason is that Brando has seduced Malden's daughter. Malden walks up to Brando, rips open his shirt from the back, and whispers in his ear, "Let's see what you are made of." (Brando was already gaining weight when the film was made, so total shirt off probably would not have been pretty.) Malden proceeds to bullwhip Brando in some of the best shots of a whipper handling a bullwhip for actual punishment I have seen on film. Brando's cut back is only seen from afar and above in a few brief shots. Brando does his very best in some frontal shots to look like he is being whipped - a perfect example of method acting even though it is clear Brando has no real idea what a whip feels like. Brando starts the scene on his feet. By the end of the scene he has dropped to his knees in pain. The scene ends with Brando saying to Malden, "You better kill me." Malden looks at him, and says there is no need. He lifts a rifle by the barrel and then in a viscious move slams the wooden butt directly onto Brando's gun hand which is grasping the rail of the hitching post. You can almost hear the bones break. Again, Brando does his very best - which is very good - to look like his hand has just been smashed. A few scenes after of his traveling in pain to a village to recover and of his cut back.
Operation Nam - In a brief scene, a naked, well-built man is tied to a triangle and whipped by his Viet Kong captor. His back an buttocks are loaded with bloody whip marks. A nice scene that should have been longer.

Much of the this is on-screen, bare buttocks included.
Perceval le Gallois - (Perceval the Welch) In this strange franco-italian movie based on the medaeval text of Chrestien de Troye, Fabrice Luchini playing Perceval is whip as Christ by two men with cats on his bareback near the end. Only front shots and face reactions while the troubadour signers sing. Never see his back.

He is bullwhipped on his bare back (his shirt being ripped off of his back) by a servant. Mostly side views, but some shots of whip hitting the back, and body and face reaction. The bloody marks look unreal. The whipman seems enjoying his job. Brief scene.

By night, he dons the garb of a ferocious-looking scarecrow to ride the countryside as a latter-day Robin Hood who steals from the rich (many of whom are his parishoners) to help the poor and devises elaborate schemes whereby his rich friends are thworted in their devious and unjust behavior. He also operates an underground escape-railroad for refugees from the King's injustice. One of these is a young man who has escaped the brutality of the British navy. He is an honorable nobleman who was conscripted (kidnapped) for duty. There is no on-screen flogging, but the fellow displays prominently the ugly stripes on his back of many beatings from his days aboard ship. An interesting note here: Walt Disney himself mentioned once that whipping was one of the "acceptable" forms of volence/corporal punishment allowed by the TV censors in America in that period.
Scarlet Letter, The (1995) -Arthur Dimmesdale (Gary Oldman) displays evidence of the lash on his back and buttocks in the swimming scene and in the love scene (visible only in the letterbox version) but we never know who whipped him or the reason for it. Deprivation through terrible editing!

After Sebastiane has been banished to a military camp, he refuses to fight with the others and so the camp commander orders him to clean some swords.

His friend played by James Garner is later tied to a whipping post and gets a couple of lashes. We see pain on his face as whip cuts around him. He is eventually rescued.
Slave Trade in the World Today - Has a scene where a tribe of men whack each other hard with bamboo sticks. This is the real thing, too. Large, ugly, bloody welts appear on their backs and sides. I think they're all too drugged up to be in any pain, though. The film claims that the men are showing their potential masters the amount of pain they can take. This is really just an excuse to fit this tribes painful ritual into the context of the film. There is also a scene where a stripper in a “secret” Arabian cabaret does a striptease to the sounds of whiplashes.
Son of Captain Blood - Starred Errol Flynn's 20-year old son Sean (who later was kidnapped & killed while covering the Cambodia invasion as a photographer). The captain of a pirate ship, who for years has wanted revenge against the original Capt. Blood, has captured his son, sets him to work catching rats in the bilge. When he rebels, he's hauled up to deck (already shirt-less from working in the sweltering lower deck), and while being held by two shipmates (who steady him by placing a foot on each of his thighs, then spreadeagling him by stretching his arms) is whipped soundly on the back. The focus is on his face -- very intense grimacing, lip-biting -- until the flogging stops with the intervention of a young female captive who begs for mercy. We then see a full-body shot of Sean's chest as he gasps for air and regains his composure. We see a few bruises, and a brief shot of some lash marks as he is taken below, as well as a few scars in a later shot of his bare back, but that level is disappointing.
Son of Cleopatra - Rather than kill another man in battle, a man submits to being flogged. He gets on his knees at a pillar and places his hands into metal rings. Several men on horseback then take turns running their horses up to him and slamming their long whips into his bare back. Great scene, many savage looking marks appear on his back. At the end of the scene he loses consciousness. Later, a we see a woman treating the marks.
Son of Fury - Tyrone does get horsewhipped in this after being knocked face down in a stable. Unfortunately, he keeps his shirt on but there's a brief scene where a woman tends his wounds and then later, when he's gone to the south seas, the chief of the local tribe shows him a boy's whipped back. His response is to tear off his shirt and show his own welts. For this part of the movie he's shirtless all the time so we get a few more glimpses of them.
Son of the Sheik, The - Gordon Scott is interrogated by Moira Orfei , under the whip. Italian picture.
Son of the Sheik - Rudolph Valentino whipped across his bare chest. (Different film from above.)
Sous le Soleil du Satan - Gerard Depardieu.
Spanish Sword, The - This low-budget 1962 British B-movie has a great scene. A strong young blacksmith (Derrick Sherwin) attacks a cruel baron in a medieval village when his lover's father is wounded after defending his daughter's honor. Rejecting the baron's offer to join his army, the outraged youth spits on him. The baron orders him to the whipping post, to which he is bound, stripped to the waist. The baron personally lays on numerous strokes, while the blacksmith defiantly refuses to give in. This is a classic whipping scene, with passion, heroism, and a virile victim. In black & white, but with compensations including a couple of full-body shots of whip contact, facial close-ups, and a several-second shot of the young man's striped and sweaty back (up to 20 strokes, plus a pool of blood on one side of his torso) afterwards.
Spartacus - In the beginning of the movie we briefly see a slave getting whipped.
Spirit, The - Although shown in silhouette and only a couple of lashes, Sam J. Jones gets chest-whipped in (movie of comic book character). Tied rack-like in some sort of warehouse, his shirt ripped open, he displays the welts on his chest in a lengthy (comic-type) interrogation by a woman villian.
SS Hell Camp - Several graphic floggings of men.
Star Slammer - A man orders his subject to flog him. I think it's supposed to be comical.
Starship Troopers - In the next century, teenage Federated squadron leader Johnny Rico, training recruits for battle against giant insects, is involved in a fatal mishap. Rather than being dismissed, he is sentenced to "administrative punishment" -- 10 lashes of the whip. He is brought, stripped to the waist, to a large courtyard in front of hundreds of his fellow soldiers (male and female). Placed under an odd-shaped structure, his wrists are attached to side-restraints, which then rise so that he is fully spread-eagled, toes barely reaching the ground, otherwise fully exposed. His drill instructor places a rubber mouthpiece in Johnny's mouth, and the flogging proceeds. Most of the shots are of the whipping striking Johnny's back, leaving bloody stripes. The camera is on Johnny for seven strokes, including one from the front of him spitting out the mouthpiece, until the fade out. Johnny is played by Casper Van Diem, a blond, slender but well-muscled actor who plays the hero, a rich kid who rebels against his father when he enlists. The scene is in Robert Heilein's book, but director Paul Verhoeven enhances it, not only in terms of plot development (it takes on the air of a coming-of-age event) but also in making sure that he gets the most out of Van Dien's physical appeal (which is enhanced by the way he is stretched).
Street Asylum - Toward the end of this piece of trash, we see none other than G. Gordon Liddy asking to be whipped by a prostute. She obliges, and whips him as he holds on to a desk. Lines of blood appear through his shirt.
Street Fighter - The Jean Claude van Dam one. A sumo wrestler is caned on his bare back.

Strogoff - Early 1970s film starring a young John Philip Law. In one scene he is caught and tortured. The scene shows him tied topless sitting on a chair with his hands bound behind him and his feet bound to the front legs of the chair. The torturer chest flogs him until he faints. He is revived by having water thrown on him, and realistic whip marks cover the front of his body.
Struggle Through Death - This Hong Kong chop-suey movie is basically just an excuse to show lots of male torture scenes. Contains several scenes of men being whipped on their backs and beaten on their bare feet.
Swamp Fox, The - Tim Considine is stripped to the waist and whipped by order of a regional English governor in this tale of the good deads of a militia leader whose first name is Marian (Leslie Nielsen) fighting against the unjust British in their occupation of Colonial America.

Unfortunately, his cover is blown, and he endures the humiliation of the beating tied to a post on the porch of the governor's lavish mansion

Ten Commandments, The - John Derek is tied between two columns and whipped by Vincent Price. He stripped to the waist and numerous bloody marks cover his chest and sides.

Tharus, Son of Attila- Tharus is whipped.
There Was a Crooked Man - shows a male prisoner whipped by a guard because he rejected the guard's homosexual advances and told him to, "Go to hell!" The actor whipped is Michael Blodgett. The film (a western) also stars Kirk Douglas and is set in a territorial Arizona prison of the late 1800s. The shirtless prisoner is tied to a whipping post and flogged with a cat. The whipping is very brief, though, because the other prisoners interfere.
Thief of Baghdad (1924) -Douglas Fairbanks is publicly whipped by four men for stealing in the silent version.
Thunder In the Valley - Lon McCallister is the star of this movie and Edmund Gwenn plays his father. At one point, Lon's character commits an act of defiance against his father who decides his son must be punished and instructs his son to take off his shirt and he begins removing his belt. His son starts removing his shirt but tries to reason with his father about being punished. After much dialogue his father puts his belt back on his pants. His son, relieved, asks if his father has changed his mind to which his father replies, "No, I have decided to use the switch instead." His father grabs the switch and flexes it in his hand while his son reluctantly assumes the position on all fours with his bare back exposed.
Tom Brown's School Days - British film made in the 1980's including scenes of caning in a boys'school.

Town Like Alice, A - BBC miniseries circa 1980. Bryan Brown, with his hands nailed to a door, is whipped by Japanese prison guards to within an inch of his life - for stealing chickens from the warden of the camp - to keep a group of female prisoners from starving.

Toy Soldiers - stars Sean Astin as a senior at a military school that has been taken over by terrorists. He is a leader of a group of students trying to undermine the terrorists. Once he is late for dinner because of one of his plots. To try and fool the terrorist commander, he strips and puts a towel around his waist pretending that he lost track of time in the shower. The commander doesn't buy it and leads Sean into the headmaster's office. Suddenly he shoves Sean over the desk and holds him by the neck. He picks up what appears to be a telescoping metal pointer. He pulls it out to its full length and begins to whip the boy on his bare back. Don't get to see much of the whipping but later we see some of his cuts.
Trial, The - A police officer is stripped to the waist and whipped by his boss. Brief scene, kept mostly in shadows.
Trial, The (remake) - Haven't seen this version with Kyle MacLachlan and Anthony Hopkins, but I assume it has a whipping in it. That is part of the story, after all.
Trigger Fast - direct to video western. Gerard Christopher, formerly young Superman in syndication, angers land baron Corbin Bernson. He is strung up in the barn, shirt ripped open at back, and takes a number of strokes of the bullwhip before a maiden intervenes 'lest he die'. Unfortunately co-star Chris Atkins, richly deserving of such treatment, would have been a fine substitute.
True Story of Jesse James, The - (1957) has Robert Wagner with his hands tied behind him thrown to the ground. In order to extract information on the whereabouts of Confederate troops, the back of his shirt is torn open and he is whipped. Of course, he doesn't talk. Afterwards he tears off the remains of his shirt and rides off to join the rebels.
Two Years Before the Mast -- the original story is an epic of written flogging descriptions (non-fiction); the movie version is transformed into a story of a spoiled rich heir (Alan Ladd) who is shanghaied, and transforms into a hero when he takes an undeserved flogging at the grating. This is a classic golden age of Hollywood flogging -- the handsome hero is meant to be seen to his best advantage, which means lots of focus on bare chest and muscle, all heroically endured, but with little lasting damage. Ladd ranks with Burt Lancaster as the two stars most identified with physically masochistic roles; he certainly gave it his all here.
Uncle Tom's Cabin - In the 1980's TV version of the tale, there is a scene in which the title character is whipped on his chest. Grim scene, shot from a long ways off.
Unforgiven - Gene Hackman whips Morgan Freeman with a leather belt in an attempt to extract information from him. Brutal scene, with many bloody marks appearing on Freeman's bare back.

Viva Zapata! - Brando stops a man from whipping a young boy
Wagonmaster - (1950) Bad guy tries to rape young Indian girl. To appease the Indians, wagonmaster orders the guy stripped to the waist and tied to a wagon wheel. There he struggles as he receives several lashes on screen. Good scene.
Wake of the Red Witch, The - A young sailor is whipped on his bareback as a example for the crew. He receives few lashes of the cat before he faints , but the whipman receives the order to continue for the count. Mainly body reactions, the shots being from far front-side.
Way West, The - Kirk Douglas.
White Warrior - A very short three lashes on the back for Steve Reeves in an Imperial Russian torture chamber.
Wild Bunch, The - There is a brief flashback scene in which a man remembers being whipped in prison.

Women's Prisoners of Devil's Island - A man is tied down to a cannon and severly lashed with a cat on his bare back. Shot from a long way off, so we don't get to see much.
Word, The - Man whipped while in prison. Later we see him lying down in bed with the marks on his back.
World in His Arms, The - Gregory Peck whipped
Zarak - Victor Mature gets whipped twice in this. First he's sentenced to be flogged to death for dallying with his father's woman. We see him tied to a well while two men flog him alternately. We see a few welts. Later, when he's captured by the rebels against colonial rule he offers to be flogged to death to give the good guys time to get to the rebels. This is a bit disappointing - the scene is shot from a long way off.
Adventures of Sinbad/The Beast Within - Zen Gesner as Sinbad never had his shirt off . In this episode, Sinbad is held prisoner by Remina, whose father he has slain. Not one to hold a grudge, she wants to marry him. He refuses, she uses her magical powers to prevent his escape; she sends him to her "hobby room." This is a torture chamber, where we see a silhouette of a burly man wielding a multi-lashed whip down on Sinbad. He stops, Remina goes over to Sinbad, who is bound to rack on his back, his shirt opened to reveal his chest, which shows a few bleeding welts. She passes her hand over them. Sinbad maintains a cocky, joking manner throughout.
Against the Wind - Mary is an Irish girl who is sent on prison ship to Australia for her resistance against Englishmen. One or two male prisoners are whipped to death on the board and another woman is also punished. In Australia, Mary works as housemaid and falls in love with a fellow prisoner, who is rather defiant and gets a shirtless whipping in the middle of the town. After that he is taken home half conscious and tended by Mary and one of the servants who applies salt on his back.
The Avengers B/W filmed episode - In a Touch Of Brimstone episode Emma Peel dressed in fancy dress as Miss Sin, spiky leather suit with flesh showing, infiltrates revival of 18th Century Hell Fire club. She is attacked at climax by decadent Peter Wyngrade who hits her twice with a whip. This episode had more whipping but was cut before release .
Big Valley, The - As far as television goes, some of the best whippings were on the western "The Big Valley." I remember Lee Majors being whipped in three separate episodes (once with a shirt on and the other times shirtless). The best scene was in the episode "Legend of a General." Lee (Heath Barkley on the show) is stripped and whipped in a Mexican jail for throwing a bucket of slop on an Army captain after the captain demands Heath to eat it. Oddly enough, we never see the lash touch Heath's back, but we see the shadow of the thongs on his skin as the captain grips the cat tightly and bounces it into his palm (the camera cuts away just after that
The Big Valley - Everyone seems to know about Heath Barkley's three floggings but big brother Jared was also a victim once. He was the lawyer and was defending an unpopular client. In the middle of the night, he was dragged out of his hotel room to somewhere outside of town. There he was tied shirtless to a tree and bullwhipped. We see several of the lashes strike him. Like Heath, he was stoic and didn't utter a sound. I don't believe we got to see much of his back afterward.
Big Valley, The: Journey Into Violence - Another of Lee Major's floggings (again shirtless) was in this story of his being held captive by a religious cult, who takes him prisoner to take the place (at least in terms of labor) of a member he killed in self-defense. When he tries to escape, he is punished with a flogging, tied to a post, while the whole cult watches, including the young widow who has eyes for him. Shot entirely from the front, the flogging is not long, but Lee does walk away painfully, where we see a brief glimpse of scars.
Blood and Orchids - In this made for TV miniseries, three Hawaiian men are tied up and whipped with belts by vigilantes after being accused of raping a woman. Lots of shots of their badly beaten backs throughout the rest of the film.
Bonanza - In one episode later in the series, Ben Cartwright is somehow caught in the middle of a prison riot and held hostage by the prisoners. The warden wants to get Ben out alive, of course, but needs to get someone to infiltrate the prisoners' group to help. David Canary plays Ben's right-hand-man, Canady or Candy and volunteers to be the one to infiltrate. They are concerned that the prisoners might not believe he is really a fellow prisoner. The warden explains that there is a way to convince the cons that Canady is for real "but you're not going to like it" as he holds up some kind of single tail whip. Candy looks grim but after all this is for Ben, so he says in typical 19th century slang, "Whatever." We don't get to see the actual flogging, but in the next scene we see him painfully putting on his prison shirt over his lacerated back. He is then thrown in with the cons who don't trust him until he grandly pulls off his shirt and shows them (and us again) his back. They believe him and Ben is later saved. As I recall Tim Matheson is one of the prisoners. He is shirtless in the first scene and we see his back covered with welts, presumably due to prison justice.
Bonanza - In another episode, Trace Cordell (Tony Young) returns to Virginia City after five years in prison. The townspeople are less than happy to see him because he cripped some big wig. One man warns Trace to get out of town before someone whips him. Trace responds that he was whipped many times in prison and we see his lacerated back after he removes his shirt.
Cadfael: The Devil's Novice - this PBS mystery series set in medieval Wales, included this episode in which Christien Anholt plays a hot-blooded noviciate priest who is flogged amid his colleagues, on an inclining wooden platform, shirtless, by a thick rope. Nicely shot in one circular shot, including views of the others' reactions, the whip striking, the victim's pain; followed by a lengthy scene of Cadfael (Derek Jacobi) cleansing a very striped muscular back.
Captain Cook - This made-for-television movie aired around 1990. It features a marine who is flogged with a cat-o'-nine-tails because he refuses to eat vegetables. He's tied to a grating and there are mostly side views as the lash falls on his bare back. His high-pitched cries are heard, even though he bites down on a leather wedge. There's one closeup of wicked looking scratches on his lower back. In my opinion, the best part is the flogger. His eyes gleam with sadistic fury and the way he shakes the lashes out after each stroke is very deliberate. The cat looks extremely authentic -- has thin, knotted lashes and a sort of crude looking handle.
Cheyenne - This was an early western series in which the muscluar star, Clint Walker, bared his barrel-chest every week. An episode called "The Young Fugitives" was no exception. Cheyenne is ambushed by a group of disguntled ranchers who order him off his horse and to remove his shirt. One of the ranchers asks another to bring up a whip. Next scene Cheyenne is tied to a tree banch, his bare back waiting for the first lash. Unfortunately, he is rescued by friends and the ranchers reluctantly untie the big guy and return his shirt.
Dakotas, The - In one episode, an officer is whipped then another guy about to be at the end of that episode. In another episode of this series, a man is whipped, leading to a fort revolt by the soldiers who take regular Del Stark, played by a very young Chad Everett, prisoner then strip off his shirt and boots and stake him out under a blazing sun for hours in the middle of the fort.
Daniel Boone - Two separate episodes of this TV series. In one, Daniel is whipped by some men in a wagon train trail because they think he neglected some orphaned children who he actually helped (one is played by a young Kurt Russell). Kurt Russell's character interferes after Daniel, who's tied to a tree, receives two or three lashes w/a bullwhip. His shirt is never removed. In another Daniel Boone episode, Daniel is captured by the British and taken to a labor camp. He's flogged (again with a shirt on) before being put to work. The better flogging comes later when a young, husky prisoner refuses to work. He's tied to a triangle and severely lashed with a cat. There are nice shots of his grimacing face and sweaty muscular shoulders and torso
Danielle Steele's "The Ring" - A clothed women is given a couple of lashes by a Nazi in this TV-miniseries.
Dark Prince: Marquis de Sade, The- There are several whippings of topless women in the movie. Originally an episode of "Roger Corman Presents" on Showtime (I think). The women are usually shot from the front, but in one scene we do get to see some savage looking whip marks on one woman's back.
Days of Our Lives (Circa 1982?) - Anna Brady comes back to Salem and claims that she had been kidnapped by white slavers. She has the whip scars on her back to prove it. Not really a whipping scene, I know, but interesting nevertheless.
Dead Man's Walk - shows actor Jonny Lee Miller tied to a wagon wheel and whipped by the Mexican Army. He's shirtless, the punishment goes on for some time and his back (albeit from a distance) looks as though it really had received 100 lashes.
Deputy, The - In one episode the deputy travelled out of town for some reason. He stayed with a nasty rancher who accused him of trying to make it with the rancher's wife. Accordingly he forced him outside at gunpoint, made him strip to the waist, and tied him to a tree. He proceeded to bullwhip him until he passed out. Got to see some bloody welts on his back and later quite a bit of blood on the back of his shirt.
Emmanuelle - The Series episode "Emmanuelle in Venice" (Shown on Showtime in the USA.) A nasty woman whips her maid for dropping her sewing basket on the floor. The Maid is told to get the whip from a hook on the wall and ordered to remove her underwear and bend over the bed. Very pretty woman and senual scene , even though you don't see much of the whipping.
Enslavement - this made-for-cable movie has three whipping scenes (with four total victims). The first whipping scene has a muscular black male slave whipped for sneaking off to have sex with his wife. The second whipping scene has a female slave being whipped for complaining about the unsanitary conditions of the slave infirmary. The last whipping scene has a black male slave whipped as punishment for another slave escaping. This scene also ends with the plantation owner's wife (the main character of the story) trying to protect the slave by getting behind him. The plantations owner whips her once across her clothed back. All three whipping scenes are very good - and the female slave whipping is quite good for a mainstream production.
Escape From Sobibor - A brief whipping of a clothed man in this Nazi escape movie.
Esclava Isaura - Brazilian tv series, with several scenes of whipping slaves, among them the white slave of the title.
Fallen Angels - The episode "The Quiet Room" starring Joe Mantenga and Bonnie Bedelia. Has a scene in which a female detective (Bedelia) interrogates a clothed woman and hits her a couple of times on the back with a rolled up wet towel.
Fantasy Island - One episode of the series had a woman becoming part of a white slavery/prostitution ring. She does something that displeases the woman in charge who decides to punish her. She's taken to a basement type room and told to place her hands through two hanging rings and hold on. Her back is bared and the woman prepares to beat her with what looks like either a thin wooden board or a very stiff leather strap. Nothing is shown, but the beating actually occurs, rather than her being saved at the last minute, as is common in most shows. The name of this half of the episode is called "The Victim."
For the Term of His Natural Life - this mini-series from the 80s has Colin Friels flogged twice. The first time he's tied to the triangle and he get a side view as the cat is laid on. The second time he's made to flog his friend. When his friend faints he refuses to carry on and so must take his place. He defiantly pulls off his shirt and leans against the triangle. They tie him to it and we see him get a few strokes from the front - he's rather stoic during this. we see him later in the infirmary, but don't see his back.
French revolution, The - it's a series produced by french TV to celebrate two hundred years (in 1989) from the revolution: in one episode a woman (french heroine Thoroigne de Muricourt) is taken by some women in a market, bounded, stripped to the bottom and birched, the episode is historical.
Friday The 13th, The Series - The last episode concerned a teacher who had found a way to communicate with the Marquis DeSade. One woman is shown being whipped (only her face is shown and she seems to partly enjoying it) and it's implied that the woman tied up in the teacher's attic has been whipped and abused, but nothing is shown. Robey, one of the stars, goes back and meets DeSade and she even get chained up and has her dress ripped open in preparation for a whipping, but she's saved at the last minute.
Gimme A Break - In one episode, the father is mad at his oldest daughter, Kari Michaelson and he decides that she's long overdue for a whipping. He pulls off his belt and chases her, but she gets away from him and then Nell Carter intervenes and convinces him not to do it. It's noteworthy because it was played very realistically (up until the end when his pants fell down) and Kari looked absolutely terrified. She was also incredibly cute and worn jeans that looked like they were painted on.
Girl, The - (UK tv 1996) A young girl is caught in her stepmother`s room with jewellery in her pocket, the stepmother is furious and tells one of her children to fetch the whip, she then gives her stepdaughter a severe whipping across the bed. later when the girl`s father finds out and sees the marks he is very angry indeed. he goes to see his wife who at this time is laying in bed, he asks her about the incident and she attempts to justify it by saying that it was deserved because the girl is a thief and was chastised for it, he then comments about the severity of the punishment, produces a whip and says: "perhaps you`d like to know how it feels." he then pulls back the covers and draws back the whip, his wife turns onto her side and he administers a severe whipping to her bottom/lower back, she screams loudly and looks in a lot of pain as each stroke of the whip is administered with some vigour by her angry husband. 4 strokes are shown on screen and 2 are heard before the scene changes.
Goodfellows - A British TV series starring Joanna Lumely. In one episode a female agent joins as escort agency to investigate its connection to arms to Iraq.

Granada - a TV series, during the Arab-Spanish War in the 15th century, a captured spanish beautiful girl is stripped to the waist, tied up, and whipped with a long cat, in a dungeon, for insulting the arab general: twenty or more strong lashes; later we see her bare back covered with welts.

Gunsmoke - (guest starring Tommy Rettig of Lassie) An adolescent boy is living with a mean guy - who also turns out to be a crook/bad guy, that week's villain - who pretended to be nice and fatherly to the kid in front of the Marshall, Matt Dillion (turns out the kid is secretly scared to death of the guy - too scared to tell the Marshall). So the Marshall, visiting them and asking a few questions (about the show's plot), gets an answer from the kid that I guess was something the kid wasn't supposed to say, as it would eventually lead to the discovery of this man's real doings. At the time, the marshall doesn't put it all together, gives his regular, friendly farewell to the smiling man and his"boy," but when the marshal leaves, the man looks down at the boy with the meanest expression and the boy kinda puts his head down, knowing he screwed up. Fade in on the next scene: On white knuckles, sweated and gripping tightly around a wooden beam, the loud CRACK! of leather on flesh, then a steady, few more as the camera slowly pans along the hand and arm and then the shirtless, sweaty, welted back of the boy, who is facing a wooden bunk bed in an old log cabin type house, arms spread wide and muscles taunt as he grips two posts of the bunk. By the time the camera is full on the boy, the whipping stops. The mean man, belt longways in hand and breathing from the hard work he just put into the whipping asks the boy: "You had enough, boy!" The kid took a moment to catch his breath stayed in position and answered something like, "Yes, Mr. Jenkins." "Okay, get your shirt on. And next time think before you open your mouth."
Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones - Has a scene where Lavar Burton's dad lifts up his shirt to look at the whip marks some of Jones' guards have given him.
Happy Valley - UK tv movie - Set among British settlers in 1930s Kenya. A bit like that movie White Mischief. Has a scene in which an uncle and his mistress cane across her bottom a sexy and wilfully tempesteous teenage schoolgirl. We see her lay face down across a sofa as at least elenven hard stoke are given as the camera slowly pans away. Later in this film ,off screen she is savagaly attacked with a Sembock, the type of rhino hide whip used by Winnie Mandela on members of her football team.

Hercules: The Legendary Heroes/ The Gladiator - Kevin Sorbo, as Hercules, is enslaved as a fight-to-the-death gladiator by the rulers of a cruel kingdom. He refuses to kill, however, and is taken to the bedroom of the queen. The dialogue is ripe but knowing: Queen: Take his clothes off. (Guards strip Hercules' shirt off; she fondles his sweaty, buff manly chest). You're a big man; nice muscle tone. (She offers, he refuses her offer to be her "personal slave.) Hercules: I'd rather sleep in a dungeon with rats than share satin pillows with a viper. Queen: Before you get your wish perhaps 40 lashes will bleed the insolence out of you. Hercules is then briefly seen tied to a rack being whipped, but the scene is played with a montage of happy memories (mostly involving women) as we hear whip cracks. We then see him walking in pain back to his cell, with about 6 or 7 bloody stripes on his sweating back.
High Chaparrel, The - A ranch hand given a flogging until Leif Ericson or one of the other leads intervenes.
High Chaparral - There is another episode of High Chaparral that contains a whipping. Manolito Montoya (Henry Darrow) and Buck Cannon are captured by Indians and one of them must prove his bravery. It falls to Manolito who is told his test will probably include some kind of crucifixion since the Indians are fascinated with it. Next we see him stripped to the waist and tied upside to a cross. He is told that a brave man will not cry out. The Indians then come riding toward him on horses one at a time and bullwhip on his bare chest.

Also of note is the fact that the episode ends with the dictator tied to the post and stripped to the waist as his oppressed people storm the compound.
