So first of all you need a minimal amount of prior knowledge on the historical role of a whipping boy a five minute search of wikipedia should do the trick but since I already know I'll just tell you. A whipping boy is a person other then a prince who is raised along side a prince and receives punishment for him. Since royalty cannot be punished by any hand other then the king's. I'd want to play the whipping boy. The emotional bond between the two could be platonic but I may be willing to do something else if you really want to. You naughty filthy perv you. Starting at age 12 well after the relationship's begining is where the rp would start. This again is negotiable. You would be refered to as lord/prince (insert name here) and the whipping boy would be Richard. PM me if you are interested.
