F/M is an abbreviation used in spanking art to signify an artwork or story that features an adult female spanker and an adult male spankee. It could be, for example, a wife/husband or a historic mistress/servant scene. Besides spanking for discipline, adult spankings in art and literature are also often erotic spankings in sexual context. After a long period of being intentionally denied the same sort of exposure that other formats of spanking received, the F/M style burst onto the scene with the dawning of the internet. As a result the F/M style is no longer held back and has become a stand alone brand.
In such spankings, the male generally removes his pants, underpants, etc. to bare his buttocks for spanking. The male will take a position, perhaps over his partner's thighs. This may arouse feelings of humiliation in the spankee, especially if the spanker is his wife or significant other. Such scenes often are called domestic discipline.
F/M is man spanking art.

A depiction of F/M spanking by OTTO
In the drawing on the right a young man undergoes a humiliating spanking at the hands of a much older woman in authority (a mother, stepmom, aunt or other guardian)in front of female peers (sisters, cousins, family friends etc) His embarrassment is hugely increased by his lower body being denuded (probably by the spanker).
Humiliation is an integral part of the broader topic of spanking. Humiliation can also cause sexual arousal with both parties, and be especially obvious in the male. Sexual tension stemming from humiliation or lack of control could be intensified with a greater age difference between the spanker and spankee, example if the male is in his twenties or thirties and the female is in her sixties or even seventies. Conversely it can also involve a young female spanker in her twenties or thirties and a much older male spankee. This type of sexual arousal does not depend on the promise of "sex to follow" to occur.
F/M video producers
Nu-West, one of the oldest and largest producers of corporal punishment videos, was also among the first to recognize the demand for femdom titles. In the early 1990s they added a new division for female dominant titles called Leda. The company then became known as Nu-West/Leda Productions. These male-submissive titles include especially harsh punishments as well as humiliation training that includes enemas and sodomy with strap-on dildos.
Two companies that are evenly divided between femdom and female-submissive productions are Pacific Force and the now-defunct Brooks Applications. Raven Hill Studios recently added a line of femdom titles produced by Bad Lad Entertainment.
The following is a list of video producers that offer male submissive (F/M) titles. Most companies also feature F/F and/or M/F titles. However, some have recently become exclusively F/M.
