Encyclopedia > Slap

A slap or "smack" is a broad stroke made with the flat open hand, as opposed to a punch that is made with a closed fist. Slaps are frequently made across the face, but can be also made across hands or any other body part, and can use either the palm of the hand or the back of the hand. When slapping or being slapped, be cautious of rings as they can slice the skin. There are several types of slaps with special names. These include the bitch slap, the pimp slap, dry slap, Kerry slap and having a slap. These form a hierarchy of slaps. In many films and television programs, girls and women typically slap boys and men who offend them in some way, as occasionally occurs in real life.
