A Kat Production
You are the headmaster of an independent school in Australia. Most of the pupils are boarders, but you do have a number of day students as well. This evening is a special night for the school – a sort of spring carnival with fun activities. Many of the day students come to it, though attending is not compulsory and they are made to understand that they are under school discipline if they choose to participate.
One of your day students, 15-year-old Trevor, decided to commit an act of vandalism that you consider merits six strokes of the cane over regular clothes. Trevor, however, is wearing rather thick denim jeans with back pockets that will provide too much protection. As it’s a Friday, he doesn’t want to suffer the anxiety of waiting until Monday for his punishment. School policy does allow you to cane over one layer of clothing, though that usually means over gym shorts. His gym shorts are not available. Bare is not an option. Trevor volunteers to take his caning over his underwear, which he tells you is cotton boxer shorts.
Will you agree to cane over his boxers? If you do, will you give him a discount because he’ll have only one layer of clothing?
