Forced nudity means to remove all or a part of a person's clothing without their full and free consent. In other words, it is nudity that is forced on a person. The person can be either made to undress (strip) or can be undressed by another person. The nudity can be full or partial, frontal or not, public, semi-public, or in privacy.
 Forced nudity as a punishment
Forced nudity can be a form of punishment - for example to punish a slave or a child, their privilege of being (fully) dressed can be revoked for some time. Nudity in a punitive context is usually quite humiliating and thus effective as a punishment. Besides, it can also prepare the delinquent for corporal punishment such as a whipping or spanking.
Forced nudity is also sometimes used to increase the punishment of corner time - the delinquent is made to stand in the corner with his pants (and briefs) lowered or taken off, or if female, with her skirt raised (and panties lowered or taken off), so that his/her bare bottom is visible.
 Non-punitive forced nudity
A strip search is another variant of forced nudity that serves a purpose other than punishment, but can be fetishized nonetheless.
 Forced nudity as an offense
If nudity is forced on another person without proper authority (e.g. as a schoolyard prank - see pantsing), or in an abusive manner (e.g. as a form of sexual abuse), it can also be a punishable offense or crime.
