Summary

Print shows an interior view of a room in which a man holds a bare-bottomed woman with a pained look on her face on his back as another woman holds up the woman's dress and points to her naked backside; a man, Whipping John, prepares to apply a bundle of rushes, the lash, to her exposed posterior. In the background, peeping in at the door, stands another man deriving gratification from the scene.
