Whipping Tom

Whipping Tom was the nickname given to a serial spanker in London in 1681. He would wait for an unaccompanied woman, grab her, lift her dress and slap her buttocks while shouting “Spanko!” before fleeing. Vigilantes began to dress in women’s clothing and patrol the areas he was known to operate.
