The playground might have any of swing sets, slides, jungle gyms, see-saws, monkey bars, merry-go-round or a sandbox. A playground is ideally floored with something that will that will blunt falls, such as sawdust or rubber chips.
Playground as an adjective
playground can be used as an adjective to describe a style of behaviour being a subset of childish. For example, playground taunts describe a type of taunt common main on playground between children:
- Liar, liar, pants on fire!
- Neener neener neener
- You missed me, now you got to kiss me.
- I'm rubber, you're glue. What you say bounce of me and stick to you.
- I know you are, you said you are, but what am I.
Or things like playground negotiation:
- My bat and ball, my rules.
- Finders keeper, losers weepers
Playgrounds and spanking
Children often interact with other children that they would not normally interact with elsewhere, so bonds of familiarity are weakened, and there are often more children wanting to use a piece of equipment than the equipment can handle at once. This coupled with excitement of play can lead to a lack of sharing and other naughty behaviour. This could result in early end of the playground visit, or it could result in chastisement ranging from scolding to spanking in the playground. Parents could spank their children on the playground to create humiliation in the spankee. This is can be increased by taking the child's pants off for a bare bottom spanking.
The outdoors setting can prompt the use of a switch, maybe even cut by the spankee themselves. If a bench is not available for an OTK position, various underarm and standing positions can be used instead.
