Shoot with David Weston

I shot lots of female spankee scenes when I was touring the USA, but it wasn't until I got back to England that I was able to arrange shoots with two male spankees I'd been looking forward to working with. We filmed for two days in a lovely new studio in Bristol, and the first day was with David Weston.

I made contact with David on Fetlife after seeing his pics and that he was into spanking, and asked if he'd consider a spanking shoot. He was definitely interested, and we talked by Skype while I was in LA to set things up.

Producing spanking video is a continuous learning curve, even after five years. After Nimue, Tom and I discovered quite how productive it was possible to be on our location shoot last September, I've been trying to balance that against the limits of the other performers I work with, particularly new spankees. It's not only how much spanking you can take, but the physical, mental and emotional fatigue of shooting - the improvisation, the adrenaline spikes, the costume changes, the elation, exhaustion and catharsis of a hard scene.

Ron had put us in touch with a beautiful venue, and I wanted to make full use of it. But I was wary of pushing David too hard on his first day. I want every performer I work with to have a fun, satisfying, non-stressful time on set, but that's particularly true of new spankees. My aim is for everyone I shoot with to want to come back and do it again! My compromise to was cast David in four short spanking videos, but to shoot some solo photosets inbetween to make the most of the venue.

We started with an introductory photoset of David showing off his lovely bottom - and his geeky taste in t-shirts.

When we had been discussing scene ideas beforehand, David mentioned that he was interested idoing a Victorian roleplay. A lot of the performers we work with are attracted to our historical scenarios - it seems to be a setting that resonates with a lot of people in the scene. Besides, who doesn't like dressing up?

We settled on a nice and simple storyline for David's first ever spanking on camera, with him playing a naughty boy who has disappointed his strict governess. When you're dealing with the nerves of improvising and reacting to a spanking under the studio lights and in front of camera crew, sometimes it's best not to complicate things too much with an intricate plotline

David took his spanking with remarkable stoicism - he kept on tensing up until I urged him to relax. It may seem counter-intuitive but if you can relax your bottom it really does feel nicer! He certainly proved that he can take a spanking. This was a hard hand spanking, but nonetheless at one point we had to move away from the face shot because he was struggling to suppress his natural reaction to the pain - a great big smile! No big deal - it provided a great excuse for a close-up on his lovely bottom instead.

David had a break while Nimue and I shot some solo photos of me in my brand new school uniform. It was a bit of a squeeze to get into the tight school skirt, but I think it was worth the effort!

After a tea break we moved into the studio's wonderful reception room, with its intimidating antique desk. David got the opportunity to explore a brattier character, playing the recalcitrant school boy who refuses to show up to detention and is sent to the head's study. Corporal punishment is no longer common in schools, and he doesn't think anything will happen to him. His cocky attitude changes to shock when the headmistress gets out the slipper and shows him that she isn't joking.

While David recovered from his first encounter with the slipper, I stayed in headmistress mode and shot some solo images, showing off my new academic hood - and a vicious new tawse from the Correction Collection.

Then it was time for lunch, and some involved scene planning for our most intense scene of the day. A far cry from the sweet and simple first spanking, this was one of my most ambitious plotlines to date, a sci-fi epic with David playing two different characters, a prince and his rebel clone. I won't give away the story, but I will say that David put in a superb performance. I wished we'd had time to devote a whole day to this idea, but making do with the time available, improvising dialogue, blocking and shots, we gave it the best we had. I was impressed with David's acting.

The acting was the easy bit though - he had never taken a cold caning before. I gave him six measured strokes, medium hard. It was very emotionally intense and David was extremely brave. The marks were gorgeous, too.

It's funny, sometimes a hard scene, even on a shoot environment, can throw up unexpected emotions or memories that need processing. It wasn't the first time I've sat with a co-performer on the floor after a caning, listening and holding space while they worked through whatever feelings the scene had thrown up, and I suspect it won't be the last. Catharsis is part of this thing we do. There can be surprising emotional closeness on a spanking shoot, even among people who have never worked together before.

Finally, while David enjoyed a well-earned break, we took some final solo photos of me in some new white and red cami knickers a viewer recently sent me as a gift. I love these full style French knickers and am looking forward very much to getting spanked in them!

Finally Nimue had her turn in front of the camera in we shot an unscripted, candid scene in which David finally got the chance to express his enjoyment of being spanked. Nimue took him over her knee for an enjoyable aftercare spanking during which he was allowed to grin as much as he wanted. It was the perfect end to a very successful first spanking shoot. I'm looking forward to inviting David back for more!

Well done all, particularly David, who looks good in his uniform. Excellent venue, very authentic - wood paneling always gets me going, I just instinctively reach for the nearest cane!
Richard

Agree about the wood panelling. It evokes a feeling of high class decadence and the "English vice" for me. And Pandora in strict headteacher mode flexing a strap in that sort of environment. Well enough said really. Lovely work with David all round.

It was a gorgeous venue... you can see why I wanted to make the most of it! I adore that high class English aesthetic too. It's a huge part of the whole spanking kink for me and guaranteed to get me in the mood. I have commented before that I think I have a bit of a location fetish!

He looked fantastic didn't he? We had such fun working together. And I quite agree re wood panelling. Definitely a turn on!

Could not have said it better!

Here I go again

Okay, I know I should learn to control myself but I doubt that will ever happen.

There are a few things with this (Strict Governess) that I think just don't work.

One: What female in charge is going to put a physical mature male over her lap for a spanking? The idea is to cause him pain, not give him a thrill. Does she like his pee-pee on her dress? All that body contact? You get a much better swing if you bend him over. Hurts a lot more. I know that requires some cooperation from the spankee but a boy that size is not going over your lap either if he does not want to. And you are not going to hold him down if he wants to get away.

Two: Why would she use her hand? Spankings hurt, and I know from experience that they can hurt the spankers hand, a lot. As said above, the idea is to cause him pain, use an implement.

I know that you need to get several spankings out of a shoot and that you want to start off with a "warm up" but this hand OTK thing for adults when it's supposed to be punishment wore out it's welcome decades ago. (I know, I've worn mine out too.) With the prices you charge I can hardly fault you for trying to maximize your investment, I just hope I'm the only one on the planet that can't take this seriously.

None of this means I don't think you do a lot of really great wonderful things.

Erotic spanking is a different story, you do whatever the parties like.

Dear Bacchus,

For someone who occasionally gets surprised when your comments aren't received positively, you sure don't put much effort into trying to be civil, do you? You know David is reading this, right? You may not mean to be rude but you sure sound that way.

To answer your questions, OTK spankings are a good way to control the spankee physically, and are embarrassing, which in many traditional contexts (such as this one) are part of the punishment. David is playing a young man in this scene, not an adult, and I think his boyish looks really fit the part. With his slight frame I could hold him in place over my knee and make sure that he couldn't move out of position to escape the spanks. Not that he tried - his character in this scene was contrite and trying to be stoic - but that helplessness and infantilisation is the whole point.

Secondly, hand spankings can hurt more than many implements, and I'm talking from personal experience here on both sides the coin. Given you are a top, I respectfully submit that you are talking out of your arse. Kindly shut the fuck up.

Yours sincerely,
Pandora

Just to clarify, I don't object to critique or feedback of my films. Loving everything isn't compulsory. What I object to is the rude way you phrase it, and the dismissal of David's experience.

"The idea is to cause him pain, not give him a thrill. Does she like his pee-pee on her dress?"

This implies a) that David was physically aroused by the experience, which is a sleazy and objectionable thing to say that undermines his professionalism. It also implies he didn't feel pain. He did. I know. I was there.

"the idea is to cause him pain, use an implement."

Again, implying this spanking didn't hurt, or that any hand spanking doesn't hurt. Anyone who has been hurt by a hand spanking would be insulted by this.

"this hand OTK thing for adults when it's supposed to be punishment"

It can be punishment. Again, anyone who has felt punished by a hand spanking would be insulted reading this.

I've given you the benefit of the doubt and taken the time to explain why your comment was inappropriate in detail. Constructive criticism is fine - insults to my performers (and to me) are not. This is not the first time this has happened and I want this website to be a safe space for my performers and for other viewers. If you can't frame your comments in a polite/civil way from now on, I will ban you. You've been warned.

I'm going to echo Pandora's comments here. OTK spankings work on so many levels, and I think in the strict Gopverness scene the position works well. David's character is a young man - negotiating that tricky time of life where he's no longer a child, but not yet quite an adult. Being taken over the knee for a hand spanking like he would have been as a child adds an element of humiliation to his punishment that would not be there if he had been bent over.

Hand spankings HURT. I know on several occasions I've been left thoroughly bruised from just a hand spanking, where implements barely leave any lasting impression.

If you don't like scenes of this nature, then I'd suggest not looking at them. But these sort of scenes work on a lot of levels, for a lot of people.

OTK

I’ve been hand spanked (OTK) by both Pandora and Nimue and yes it hurts a lot, so much so, you are left gasping for breath. Hand spankings are some of the hardest punishments and most pleasurable experiences I’ve had to date. Thank you ladies. xxx

Fair return of comment

Perhaps the critique wasn't meant to sound as harsh as it did. But fair play on the reactions! And in terms of new performers in particular, basically hats off and respect for the guts to do something like spanking on film.

Re hand spanking - a lot depends on the relative sensitivity of the recipients cheeks too I think. If you haven't been spanked in a while the hand can pack a heck of a sting, and its intensity can also be varied very readily just like implements. For me the overriding aspect of hand spanking is the beautiful intimacy - the squeezing, caressing and even pinching of pink/red bum cheeks after a firm series of spanks is wonderful. I personally find this oscillation between tender and strict a great feature of the spanking genre when it's done well. It works in really quite strict scenes overall as well as the clearly more erotic scenes I reckon. The hand is also able to pull any underclothing around in between spanking, opening up possibilities for drawing all sorts of material types across the skin. Overall a fine and versatile 'implement' IMO.

I agree completely with your hand spanking remarks. It's my favorite thing. But that's not punishment. I have done plenty of what I call pseudo-punishment, where she wants to be treated like a naughty girl, but even so I'm enjoying the contact with bare hand bare bottom. I don't think your actually supposed to enjoy punishing somebody, after all it's a job!!!!!

Oh boy! I knew I would catch hell for critiquing the format, but I'm totally blown away by this. I heard you were ranting about me on Twitter!!!! (I don't have a twitter thing.)

So I'll try to explain myself:

"This implies a) that David was physically aroused by the experience, which is a sleazy and objectionable thing to say that undermines his professionalism. It also implies he didn't feel pain. He did. I know. I was there."

It does not imply (nor state) any such thing. Maybe what I should have said was "intimate body parts," my point was that I have a hard time believing a governess would not be concerned about her dress, even wrinkling it. What I said had nothing to do with David. He was given a part and played it. And how it implies he did not feel pain I just cannot not understand. And what if he did enjoy it, it would not be the first time. No way in hell do I see that as unprofessional, maybe he deliberately antagonizes (not hard to do in this case (Whoops, I did it again)) his governess just to get a spanking.

" Again, implying this spanking didn't hurt, or that any hand spanking doesn't hurt. Anyone who has been hurt by a hand spanking would be insulted by this."

Oh come on. I have been doing this for sixty or so years, I know damn well what a hand spanking can do, from both ends, and there was no implication that it does not hurt. My point was that it also hurts her hand and there are other ways to do it causing no pain to the spanker. I wish there was an alternate universe where you could give me all the hand spanking you want and I get to give you five swats with a paddle of my choosing. (A thin one, about 15mm, with lots of holes.) Then we can have this discussion. My unstated point was that she could have gotten the same effect in far less time with a paddle. And about humiliation, how about having to wait, pants down and bending over something, for the governess to get to it? With the rest of the household staff peaking around the corners snickering and giggling.

" It can be punishment. Again, anyone who has felt punished by a hand spanking would be insulted reading this."

I think I've already beaten this enough.

I sort of assumed that he was supposed to be a teenager, 15 or so, but unless I'm supposed to imagine that he was not really his size you are not getting or keeping him over your lap without some cooperation from him. When you have somebody in position (non OTK) waiting for it to start you can tell them any excessive movement and the swat does not count.

Please read this again. "With the prices you charge I CAN HARDLY FAULT YOU FOR TRYING TO MAXIMIZE YOUR INVESTMENT."

I wasn't complaining about your prices, I think you are one of the best values on the net and have said so before. I was trying to say that you don't charge a lot and so are entitled to do the best you can with what you have. In other words, or in this instance, multiple spankings on one model in one session.

To try to sort of sum this all up, I was not talking specifically about this video (which I have not seen,) I was talking about, or I meant to talk about what I consider a very overused and not realistic way of doing things. And just to make sure it is very clear, I was not criticizing David's performance, or implying anything about it. It actually never even occurred to me that he was anything less than just fine.

As for banning me, you do whatever you want. I am who I am and while I can be a smart ass I do not ever mean to hurt anybody. There are plenty of scenes on this site that I don't care for and I just move on. Which is what I will do if I can't come here anymore. The Sun will still shine and life will go on.

As a wise rabbit once said...

"If you can't say something nice ..."

I'm sorry, you *haven't seen the video*? Wow. Okay, I just officially lost interest. Future comments will be deleted so don't bother :)
