As a product
Adult spanking photos that involve erotism may be rated "for adults only" and unsuitable to be viewed by minors. Also, some people are offended by BDSM material, including erotic spanking. For this reason, many websites that feature such material have warnings that their contents is explicit, possibly upsetting, and for adults only.
Erotic spanking photos can be considered pornography in some jurisdictions. In some countries, they can be considered illegal material because the law bans pornography that "eroticizes violence". In other countries, all pornography is banned.
