A tear is a drop of clear, salty liquid secreted by the lachrymal gland of the eye. A tear lubricates the surface between the eyeball and eyelid. Tears are a profusion of this liquid spilling from the eyes and wetting the cheeks, especially in an expression of intense emotion such as happiness, sadness or pain. But tears can also appear independent from emotion, by irritant substances such as the vapors of freshly cut onion.

The act of shedding tears is the start of crying or weeping.


Dacryphilia (also known as dacrylagnia) is a form of paraphilia in which one is aroused by tears or sobbing. The term covers all forms of pleasure from the tears of others. The arousal is achieved when viewing a person in emotional distress. It carries the theme where a person (often a top in a BDSM relationship) induces another (the bottom) to cry, or otherwise show a strong emotion.

A child will sometimes shed tears from being spanked, coming from the pain and/or intense emotions and feelings such as anger, shame, or helplessness.

In consensual spanking, a spankee or spanker may decide that the bottom needs to be brought to tears. In such cases, the spanking may be longer in duration and use a more severe spanking implement. Typically, when a spanker intends to bring a bottom to tears, he/she progresses through the first cycle to a higher level. The spanker will encourage the spankee to be accepting, then increase the strokes accordingly. At some point, the bottom produces tears which is the natural desired outcome of an erotic spanking. Male bottoms are the most difficult to bring to tears.

A bottom in tears is a person who needs some holding and attention. This is common at the end of a forceful spanking. Tears represent a moderate level of emotional release. The next state is crying. Some people feel the ideal erotic spanking will end either with tears or crying.
