A vintage Dreams of Spanking scene - and a slice of personal history

Victorian wench Pandora Blake is punished by Thomas Cameron at Dreams of Spanking

Since Dreams of Spanking launched, I've been impatient to edit and release The Victorian Brothel. I chose the image of me over Tom's knee, wearing bloomers and a corset, as the homepage header image back when I designed the site in the summer of 2011. I always intended to create a rotating gallery of images on that header, showing a wider variety of scenes, but somehow I never found time.

I was incredibly proud of this film when we shot it. This was my second ever shoot as producer/director, a day with Zille Defeu, her husband Duncan, our friend Jay, Tom and me. The first Dreams of Spanking shoot had just been me, Jay and Tom. Those early shoots were a steep learning curve for me.

Until The Victorian Brothel, every scene was a crash course in new aspects of filming that I had to work out from scratch. There was a lot of stopping and starting. Trying to juggle the mental demands of directing with the physical and emotional challenges of bottoming on camera, I found it hard to avoid getting stressed. But The Victorian Brothel was our final scene of the day, and it was the first scene I'd produced that felt like it went well at the time. With Duncan, Zille and Jay behind the camera, Tom and I got into character and the roleplay flowed. It felt as natural as the roleplay scenes we played in private. Trusting our friends to capture our live improvisation, I was able to immerse myself in the scenario, get fully into character, and surrender to the beating without having to balance that headspace with other, more technical concerns. As a result I was able to take a much harder spanking, paddling and caning than I usually can while performing/directing, and I was really happy about it.

That was over seven years ago, in early December 2009. The reason I didn't edit this film before the site launched, along with the other two scenes we shot that day - Caned in Jodhpurs and Liberated Ladies of the Jazz Age - is simple. The Victorian Brothel was originally written as part of a series of films entitled The Adventures of Molly Brown. I'd written several episodes of it; this was the fourth chapter in the story. I hadn't had a chance yet to shoot episodes one to three, but the shoot with Zille and Tom was a perfect opportunity to shoot the episode in which my character meets his for the first time. I very much intended to shoot the others at some point, however; and I wanted to wait and release them in story order.

Sadly, I never got a chance to film the backstory. Episodes one, two and three fell by the wayside. And when I realised that the age verification policy in the Digital Economy Bill was going to put a cut-off point on my ability to keep the site alive in its current form, I finally accepted that I wasn't going to get the chance to shoot them any time soon. Meanwhile, I'm trying to release as much of the content I care about while the site is still legal in the UK.

So Molly Brown's story starts here: with her first appointment with a new customer in Mrs Slater's brothel. An urchin who grew up in the streets and the workhouse, Molly was sent out to work for various undesirable trades, but somehow always found herself sent back to face the the steely glare - and the hard leather strap - of the beadle. When Mrs Slater turned up to see if he had any new girls for her, he packed her off to the brothel - and Molly's life entered a new chapter.

Scrubbed to within an inch of her life, Molly began her transformation into a girl Mrs Slater's customers might find appealing. She earned her share of licks from the madame, too; but it was nothing compared to the beadle's strong right arm. When Mrs Slater saw how well Molly took her punishment, she thought to send her to one of her more eccentric clients, a gent with a predilection for administering corporal punishment to the plump bare bottoms of comely wenches. Molly lacked the elegance and accomplishment of other girls, but she was resilient and quick-witted, and Mrs Slater saw the potential to train her up to please her more unusual clientele.

Molly took well to Mrs Slater's training, and was finally declared ready to meet her first customer. But although Molly is no stranger to taking a beating, she still is not particularly inclined to behave submissively. Sparks fly between her and the gent as he tries to bend her to his will, and her quick tongue and stubborn nature get her into more trouble than she'd bargained for.

So that's Molly's backstory. You never know, it's not impossible I might be able to shoot the previous episodes sometime in the future - although perhaps I'll look too different by the time the stars align, and I have affordable access to the venues and cast I need. In the meantime I think this scene stands well enough on its own. Although I can tell you now that the next chapter has also been shot, and will be released in the coming weeks, starring myself, Tom, and a new character played by Leia Ann Woods...

Coming back to this film to edit it, seven years after it was filmed, was a weird experience. Tom and I split up three years ago, and it was very strange to watch us on camera. I almost felt like I was watching someone else; and yet in other ways seeing us together all those years ago felt very real, and very personal.

I remember writing this scene for us to play. Although Tom plays a very overbearing, bullying character, and to the uninitiated perhaps this scene might be edgy enough to seem non-consensual, I can tell you for certain that this scenario was my fantasy, and performing it was an authentic act of self-expression. But it was fascinating and somewhat dissonant to watch this recording, a piece of my own personal history, and reflect on how much has changed since then.

There are some aspects of this film that I would definitely do differently nowadays. For instance, the way that Tom's patriarchal character throws around the word "whore" makes me wince, now, as an advocate of sex workers' rights who is fighting against stigma and whorephobia. These days I would seriously consider before I took on the role of a historical sex worker, but back then I didn't think twice.

Editing this, I had the opportunity to reflect on how far Dreams of Spanking has come - not only politically, but technically. The Victorian Brothel was shot before I knew to record audio separately from the cameras, or to use face lights. It was a frustrating edit in some ways, as I struggled to salvage a legible soundtrack from two cameras that both had audio isses - one picking up a lot of wind noise (from where I have no idea, given we were indoors), the other plagued by mechanical clicks and whirrs from the operation of the camera. But I feel like I've managed to massage it into a shape that communicates my vision, hopefully without too many technical distractions. I hope you'll forgive any that remain.

For me, the power of this film comes from the interaction between the characters. It's a hard corporal punishment scene, both physically and emotionally - the intensity brings me/Molly to tears towards the end. But not only is the spanking itself severe, the atmosphere of the scene is rife with tension. The scenario unfolds as a battle of wills between a cruel gentleman with particular tastes, and a spirited wench who doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut. I certainly took more strokes, and harder, than if Molly Brown had been submissive than rebellious. But I loved it.

Life has moved on since Tom and I filmed this scene. We are no longer together, and there have been many changes for both me and Dreams of Spanking. But this film holds a special place in my heart. It shows what Tom and I did best - hard, accurate spanking that pushes me to my limits, quick-witted dialogue, sparks flying between two strong characters, and Tom's trademark brand of elegant, articulate dominance.

When I filmed this scene, it seemed to encapsulate everything I wanted to achieve with Dreams of Spanking: immersive roleplay between real life partners, lush costumes and locations, and imaginative historical settings with a quirky sense of humour and a rich attention to detail. That was why I chose a still from this scene as our banner image - and why, although much has changed since then, I'm still very pleased to share it with the world. 

Victorian pin-up perfection

Despite containing nakedness, over the knee spanking and hard caning, there is something almost innocent in these images. Maybe it's the Victorian setting, or Pandora's white flouncy underskirt. Whatever it is, it really gives this scene a romantic air that I love. It's a sort of nostalgia for a time I only know from books and films.

The Victorian Brothel starring Pandora Blake and Thomas Cameron is a gorgeous sepia photoset that manages to perfectly capture a sort of mentor/protegee experience. I think the slightly cheeky but nervous smile on Pandora's face as she looks up at him is one of the things that make me think of the asymmetrical power dynamic between a strict teacher and student who is eager to impress.

Pandora Blake and Thomas Cameron in The Victorian Brothel at Dreams of SpankingPandora Blake and Thomas Cameron in The Victorian Brothel at Dreams of Spanking

There is an innocence in the photos of Pandora as a Victorian wench getting ready to meet (and please) her new client. I love the image of her kneeling at his feet; the way her hands are tucked under her bottom, and she is looking at the floor but still turned towards him, and the smile on his face as he sits relaxed. It holds possibility; his hand resting on his knee looks like all he has to do is lift a finger and he will be touching her breast. It’s powerful; charged with sensual tension but not overtly erotic…and despite not being submissive, I find I can’t decide if I want to be on the floor or in the chair.

The sequence of photographs where Pandora is showing herself off for Thomas is fascinating. There is an air of confidence but also uncertainty. It conveys the feeling that she is proud of her body but not quite sure if the person she is showing off for approves. Even when she is laid over his knee she seems confused by his lack of apparent response to her charms - which makes her reaction to the first spank so delightful...

Pandora Blake and Thomas Cameron in The Victorian Brothel at Dreams of Spanking

I love the careful way Thomas explores her; lifting her skirt, parting her white bloomers, stroking her bum, and skimming past her more delicate area before teasing with a finger, as if he is testing her readiness. The way he lines up the paddle while Pandora tenses, her face crunched as she prepares for the first impact of leather.

I think my favourite image in this set is the one of the cane impacting on Pandora’s bare bottom. The pose, composition, the way the heels lift her bare bottom, and the stocking tops frame the ‘impact zone’. I love how the cane is pressing into her flesh, bending slightly with the force of the stroke. Plus, it is a very lovely bottom, especially with that pattern of bruised stripes across it. It’s an image I have gone back to more than once.

Finally her punishment is over, and Thomas gathers Pandora on his knee. There is something really sexy about the way Pandora bites her lip as Thomas bites her nipple. The way he has her arms pinned behind her back just adds to the feeling. This is a really hot image, that gave me all the right kind of shivers. The film that goes with this photoset has just been released, and I can't wait to watch it because I think it will be hot hot hot.

The last image in the set reminds me of those collectable cards you used to get in cigarette packet, of the sexy ladies in their underwear. It has that air about it, Victorian pin-up perfection.

This is an elegant, evocative photoset with so many beautiful images in it. Which is your favourite?

A sensual over the knee spanking to make you melt

Sometimes a good, long over the knee spanking is all you need to melt. To feel the stresses of the world around you slip away as you surrender yourself to sensation. And with this film, a no-frills, unscripted erotic hand spanking, you will feel yourself melting along with Pandora. I know I did.

Wearing beautifully elegant black lace knickers and hold-up stockings, it doesn’t take long for Pandora to be turned into a puddle of bliss. John Phillips’s firm hand takes her through a long, slow warm-up, ramping up the erotic tension and building a rhythm that has Pandora saying “yes please”.

Confession: that’s pretty much exactly what I was saying too.

There are so many things I like about this scene. Its rawness. The light (because I am both a sucker for beautiful light and also a massive nerd). The moments where the camera closes on Pandora’s face as she flashes us a grin of approval. The build-up to a climax of twelve hard spanks... plus a couple extra for good measure.

Don’t get me wrong; I love getting lost in a good story. I like frills. I like well-thought out scenarios and dramatic build up. But sometimes simple is the most effective way to my heart. And this scene is so gorgeous because of its simplicity. Just Pandora, receiving a delectable, shiver-inducing over the knee spanking.

Sometimes that’s all you need to melt. Even when you’re just watching.

A beating that's so much sexier because we're all co-conspirators...

Something as dark and sordid as blackmail is ripe for kink. Firstly there's the power-play element: where you're never quite sure quite who's got the upper hand. Secondly, the subversion of society's inclinations to make sex something dirty and sordid: excellent blackmail material.

In this week's scene, Ten Amorette take all of that darkness, wraps it up in her tight, smart, dress, and sashays over to politician Paul Kennedy's house with the aim of entrapping him in a sordid spanking scenario

An over the knee hand spanking for Ten Amorette at Dreams of Spanking

 You can probably tell that this scene is inspired by House of Cards: when Pandora emailed me about it, she explained that she'd been watching a lot of the devious Netflix series at the time. I was delighted, because I personally find House of Cards a massive turn on: the machinations, the double-crossing, the fact that you never truly know what Frank Underwood is thinking, until he turns to camera and beckons you closer, giving you a keyhole glimpse into his evil plans. 

An over the knee hand spanking for Ten Amorette at Dreams of Spanking

In this scene, it's Ten Amorette who has the power, and politician Paul Kennedy who's caught in her honeytrap. But her exposition at the beginning of the scene is borrowed straight from those intimate moments during House of Cards, where the audience is invited to both fear and root for the 'bad guy.' Ten sits on the bed, putting the finishing touches to her outfit – tight dress and high heels, a real femme fatale costume - and explaining her hopes for the afternoon. She wants to make sure that she gets enough material to blackmail Paul. She's heard he's into some 'freaky stuff' in bed, and if she can draw his spanking kink out, then she should get the evidence she needs to truly screw him over. 

A hard belt whipping for Ten Amorette in this new blackmail porn film at Dreams of Spanking

Pandora explains that this technique was a new idea, which came up during a discussion at the feminist porn conference. The dilemma: how do you make performer consent explicit in a non-consent scene? Blackmail is a great test case for this, because either character can be the one doing the blackmailing. While you may have a spankee who is feigning reluctance to get spanked, in a blackmail scenario they're there because – like Ten Amorette in this scene – they want to get the payoff when they gather the blackmail material. 

A hard belt whipping for Ten Amorette in this new blackmail porn film at Dreams of Spanking

Of course in a scene with more characters, or one with a longer story arc, you can use conversations with other characters to make the blackmail plot explicit. But the House of Cards-style discussion means you can break the fourth wall without needing more characters, and it also gives it a delicious conspiratorial air. You, the viewer, are being invited along with Ten Amorette as she carries out her plan. 

I think this conspiratorial atmosphere is one of the things that made House of Cards so sexy, and it's one of the things that adds to the hotness of Ten's blackmail porn scene. She gets to Paul Kennedy's house, and teases him into giving her an over the knee spanking. To someone who wasn't involved in the back story, it may look like your average playful sexy spanking scenario. But to us, the audience – Ten's co-conspirators – we know that she'll need a much harder beating if she's going to get the evidence she needs...

A whistlestop tour of some favourite corporal punishment implements

Maintaining Discipline – our new flirty two-part switch storyline starring Pandora Blake and Mike Pain – is like a Who's Who (or What's What) of corporal punishment instruments. The pair work their way through the slipper to tawse and cane, with a bit of warm-up hand spanking thrown in when they switch roles. Because of this, I thought it'd be a good excuse to take a closer look at some of our favourite implements.

Most blog posts I write for Dreams of Spanking are written from my point of view as an enthusiastic, horny sex blogger, eager to tell you all the ways in which individual scenes float my kinky boat. This time, though, I'm going to pretend to be Amazon – providing recommendations for further viewing depending on which implement you prefer. So grab a membership if you don't have one already, and settle down for some personalised film recommendations...

The slipper

In part one of Maintaining Discipline, new teacher Ms Blake is given instruction in corporal punishment by the friendly headmaster. He wants to make sure she can keep her pupils under control, and what better way than with the stinging whack of the slipper on a bare bottom? The headmaster makes an unexpected offer - and bends over so Pandora can learn to dish it out.

In Maintaining Discipline part 2, though, it's her turn to understand how it feels - a clearly aroused Ms Blake offers up her bottom, and the headmaster shows her just how much corporal punishment can hurt.

If you like the slipper, you might also like: Sent to the Headmistress. Cute delinquent schoolboy David Weston is hauled in front of the stern headmistress, and bends over her desk for a spanking.

You might also like one of my personal favourites. Pandora tells me that it's rare to see male/female switching films in spanking porn, so if you love M/F switch scenes as much as you love the slipper, I bet you'll enjoy The Schoolgirl's Revenge. Grown-up schoolgirl Molly Malone cunningly turns the tables on her old headmaster Sir John Beecroft, in a twisted tale of blackmail and revenge.

The ruler

Wooden rulers are a special kind of implement. While many spanking tools are made specifically for the job, the wooden ruler is something that might be found lying around any classroom or study, and happen to be conveniently to hand when the time comes to dish out punishment. In Maintaining Discipline part 1, Pandora tries out both slow, hard strokes and a quick flurry of six cracks in a row.

If you like the ruler, you might also like: Dana for Senator. Dana Kane's Senatorial campaign starts soon, and her interns Michael Darling and Pandora Blake need to shape up. So Dana makes use of the wooden ruler that lies so temptingly on her desk nearby...

The tawse

Leather straps and tawses have always been a favourite of mine. In Maintaining Discipline part 2, a calm Mike Pain explains to Pandora that the tawse hurts more because of the split in the centre of the leather, before advising her to use it "as hard as she can". It certainly has an impact – ear-splitting cracks followed by tell-tale red stripes that instantly appear on Mike's bottom.

If you like the tawse, you might also like: The Prefect and the Fag. One of my favourite ever Dreams of Spanking films, because it contains two guys who just happen to be the kind of people I'd blush at if I met them in a bar - plus some twisted abuses of power and an intensely hot tawsing at the end.

It's also well worth checking out Alex Reynolds and Paul Kennedy in Playing Truant – a more vicious tawsing on the tender skin at the back of the thighs, in which both performers pull off a spectacular translation of fantasy into reality.

The cane

In case it wasn't obvious, the cane is one of the most popular things on Dreams of Spanking – I'm sure you can guess why. In Maintaining Discipline part 2, part of Pandora Blake's tutorial involves learning how to use the cane. With headmaster Mike Pain bent over the desk, providing calm instructions, she starts first with a thin cane and then onto much harder strokes with a thick one. Which is more painful? I'll let you decide...

If you like the cane, you might also like: There are plenty of scenes to choose from here, and I'm struggling to pick just one or two. What I will say is that if you love the cane, you're in for a real treat, because we've been on a bit of a caning spree recently, as so many amazing people joined in with our sponsored caning protest against the UK porn laws - such as bondage superstar Ariel Anderssen.

And, of course, if you enjoyed watching Pandora cane Mike in Maintaining Discipline part 2, you definitely shouldn't miss Mike Pain's spectacular début thrashing on Dreams of Spanking – Mike's Secret - which might just the hardest caning Pandora has given on film to date.

So what do you think? Were we right - if you like the slipper, ruler, tawse and cane, did you enjoy our recommendations? Or do you have other favourites?

Real life couple caning - D and Pandora

If you've been following this site for a while, you might have noticed something missing. Although the archive is crammed with hot spanking videos, and many of them show me playing with real life partners and lovers (particularly my top of ten years, Thomas), one person has been conspicuous by their absence: my long-term boyfriend and dominant, D.

Real life couple D and Pandora indulge in erotic spanking at Dreams of Spanking Real life couple D and Pandora indulge in erotic spanking at Dreams of Spanking

D and I have created plenty of photosets together, but he's never topped me on video. As a dominant he is relaxed and spontaneous, and the idea of following a script, playing a character and pretending to scold and punish me isn't really him. He's an exhibitionist, but unlike me, he doesn't enjoy performing.

It's a point of principle for me as a director not to pressure anyone to do anything they aren't comfortable with. So we've always stayed within D's comfort zone, shooting occasional photosets that didn't make him feel like he was acting. Until now.

Now, there is a spanking video starring me and D on Dreams of Spanking - and with a 50 stroke cold caning, he certainly knows how to make an entrance.

50 cold cane strokes for Pandora Blake from her real life partner D

When I set up my fundraising campaign to raise money to help non-profit organisation Backlash challenge the new UK porn laws, D was behind me every step of the way. Our shared political values are one of the fundamentals of our relationship, and we've both always been active in politics in different ways. When I told him I needed someone to beat me on video to fight internet censorship, he was happy to step forward - no acting necessary.

This was the longest, hardest caning D has ever given me. Dishing out fifty hard cane strokes on film purely for the sake of it was never going to be his cup of tea - but as an act of political protest? Sure.

50 cold cane strokes for Pandora Blake from her real life partner D

Speaking of cups of tea, one of my favourite moments in this free caning film is jjust before stroke sixteen, when I insist on pausing the caning so I can finish my half-drunk cuppa. It turns out that taking fifteen hard cane strokes on the bare bottom is the perfect way to pass the time while you wait for your tea to cool to the ideal drinking temperature. What better pick-me-up to boost my spirits for the remaining strokes? This is a protest film about the new UK porn laws, after all - and I don't think there's any combination more British than tea and caning.

50 cold cane strokes for Pandora Blake from her real life partner D

I love the playfulness and affection between D and me in this video. We were both being ourselves, no roleplay, no characters, and watching it back the dynamic feels very true to our relationship. He doesn't usually watch my spanking videos, but he watched this one and chuckled his way through it at our banter and in-jokes. "It feels very us," he told me. "We're adorkable."

50 cold cane strokes for Pandora Blake from her real life partner D

If you've ever looked at my steamy photosets with D and felt curious about our relationship, and wanted to meet the man behind the pictures, watch this film. It's about as honest a portrait of the two of us as you can get.

Apart from the caning, of course. That bit's completely out of character.

Determination, dedication, and fifty hard cane strokes

This is going to sound like the understatement of the decade, but bear with me: things are really hard for independent pornographers in the UK right now.

For a long time they've had to deal with the government's excessive moralising about porn, and the onerous irrational restrictions around content imposed by payment processors. On top of that, they now have to tackle ATVOD (the Association for TV On Demand), which has decided that internet porn should be subject to the same rules as DVD porn: no more 'extreme' BDSM. No more fisting, squirting, caning or piss.

But there's strength in fighting back, and in the process of working with amazing people like Pandora, I've seen so much determination in the face of a truly exhausting and excruciating process. Pornographers like Pandora, and Nimue Allen, have had to very quickly work out what to do about the ATVOD fiasco. They essentially have two options: shut down their businesses and stop doing what they love, or fight.

They chose the latter.

Our latest free caning video sums up all the strength and determination encompassed in that fight. Nimue Allen - porn producer, performer, and fan of so many of the acts that will be banned in porn if ATVOD get their way - takes an intensely hard fifty stroke caning from her play partner The Boss.

Nimue Allen bends over for 50 hard cane strokes in this free caning video

The raw energy in this scene comes straight from Nimue's attitude – her stoic determination to take the caning no matter what. In the pre-scene interview, she speaks with eloquent passion about the UK porn laws, explaining exactly why the law is an ass. Nimue loves making the porn that she makes – with Pandora at Dreams of Spanking and at her own site Nimue's World. And she doesn't intend to give it up without a fight.

Nimue Allen bends over for 50 hard cane strokes in this free caning video

Nimue's taken some serious canings at Dreams of Spanking before; most recently the gorgeous The Cane in the Cupboard with Molly Malone as her strict probation officer. But this one's a bit different – in this Nimue isn't playing a character, taking a caning purely for the arousal and enjoyment, she's taking a hard caning as an act of protest. As she says in the video, it's a 'fuck you' to ATVOD. A demonstration of her passion for her work.

Bent over the sofa for the cane, first in black lace and then stripped naked, she breathes deeply to calm herself before each hard stroke. Watching each red stripe bloom on her bottom, it's a clear reminder of the joy and hotness that she is fighting for. And for a caning fan, it's an impassioned reminder of what we'll be missing out on unless these laws are repealed: the chance to watch people we love doing things they love, and sharing in those moments of raw, authentic play.

Nimue Allen bends over for 50 hard cane strokes in this free caning video

So please join Nimue on the sofa for this intimate, hard caning. And please do support the fight by sharing this video, and paying for the porn that ATVOD is trying to ban.

Free spanking videos to fight censorship

In January, to protest the ridiculous and damaging new UK porn laws that were brought in on 1 December 2014, making it illegal for anyone in the UK to distribute videos online which would not be classifiable with an R18 rating by the BBFC, I ran a fundraising campaign. To generate cash for Backlash, the UK organisation dedicated to defending our sexual freedoms and providing legal support for those affected by laws like this, I pledged to take one hard cane stroke for every £10 raised.

The fundraiser was a runaway success, and even with Nimue Allen standing with me, we quickly reached our self-imposed maximum of 50 hard cane strokes each and had to recruit additional bottoms to help us out. Luckily, I know quite a few people willing to bend over and take a caning for a good cause.

Free caning video: Ariel Anderssen takes a judicial punishment caning of 24 hard cane strokes

Our team of brave volunteers included Ariel Anderssen, better known in the spanking scene as Amelia Jane Rutherford. She pledged up to 25 strokes - which were sponsored within hours! - and she and her husband Hywel Phillips also offered to donate a free caning video as a stretch goal reward. Ariel's Judicial Caning was produced as a custom film, and they were planning to release it as exclusive members-only content on their glamour bondage site Restrained Elegance. To support the cause, they promised to publish it free online instead if the fundraiser reached its target.

Alongside Dreams of Spanking and Nimue's World, Restrained Elegance is also hit hard by the new laws - when and if the law is enforced, they will have to take down substantial amounts of content featuring full bondage of both hands and feet with a gag, or perhaps stop trading entirely. Hywel and Ariel's site is an authentic depiction of their erotic and romantic lives, and all their films are safely and consensually produced by experienced bondage enthusiasts. It's a crying shame that this sort of positive, couple-oriented adult content stands to be taken offline in the name of "protecting children", when fetish porn can provide such a necessary role in helping young people with marginalised sexualities feel less desperate and alone.

The good news is that thanks to a surge of support from the kinky community, our fundraiser raised more than we ever expected - the final figure was £3836. As promised, Ariel's Judicial Caning was released last week. It's beautifully shot by Hywel on high-end cameras, and the film really captures the anticipation and tension of a severe caning, particularly Ariel's nervous body language as she strips for punishment. The marks are gorgeous, too.

As if that wasn't enough, we've been proud to host another guest update this week, too: Knowing by Michael Stamp and Zoe Page.

Knowing - a study in the anticipation a submissive feels before she is punished. By Michael Stamp and Zoe Page.

Mike and Zoe are a real life kinky couple, and for years they worked together on Mike's membership site Bars and Stripes, a female-submissive spanking series set in a women's prison. Bars was one of the first sites I worked for when I started out as a porn performer and along with their good friends Northern Spanking, with whom they often shared shoots, they set the gold standard for ethical production and taking care of their performers. When I worked for Bars, I was given the opportunity to write my own character, contribute scene ideas, and the shoots were tremendously good fun, with lots of cameraderie on set, yummy food and drink and post-shoot evening parties. Playing a recurring character allowed me to get really immersed in the roleplay, which made for a more satisfying shoot experience - and allowed us to go deeper and further in terms of the intensity than if we were less invested in the narrative. Working with tops who would quickly become close friends, including Mike, Northern Spanking founders Paul Kennedy and Lucy McLean, and later Zoe Page when she joined the project, made everything that much more enjoyable.

So I was really sad to learn that, as a direct consequence of the new UK laws, Mike had sold Bars and Stripes overseas, along with all his unedited content. Northern Spanking have done the same thing, and are now based in California. This is happening everywhere I look: producers selling up, relinquishing control of UK projects that had a hugely positive effect on the UK porn industry. When the shining examples of ethical, performer-driven production shut up shop or move overseas, where does that leave UK porn?

I'm getting increasing numbers of enquiries from porn performers looking for fetish or spanking work in the UK and wanting to shoot with safe, ethical producers. More and more sites are moving their production overseas, and there are fewer and fewer producers I am able to recommend to new performers.

Not to mention that UK sites closing down or selling up will reduce the amount of good content available to UK viewers, and the influence ethically produced fetish porn can have within the UK fetish scene. If ATVOD go ahead with their long-term plan to ban all overseas content that doesn't comply with their regulations from being viewed from within the UK, by blocking it using the UK internet filter, then eventually people in the UK won't be able to view this sort of content at all.

Which is why, when Mike and Zoe produced a new sort of spanking film, which premiered at the British Fetish Film Festival last month, they wanted to help our fundraiser any way they could. Mike no longer has editorial control of Bars and Stripes, so he couldn't donate any site memberships or members-only films as stretch goal rewards. But he did offer us this film.

Knowing - a study in the anticipation a submissive feels before she is punished. By Michael Stamp and Zoe Page.

Knowing is a short study in the anticipation a submissive feels when they know they are about to be punished. Created by husband-and-wife team Michael Stamp and Zoe Page, this shows a side of the normally dominant Zoe that we have never seen before. It's a beautiful piece of film-making, and I love the way sound is used to heighten the emotional tension. There's also something thrilling and teasing about the way that it ends just as a normal spanking film would be about to get started. I think it's beautiful, and I'm very grateful to Mike and Zoe for releasing it.

I hope you enjoy Ariel's Judicial Caning and Knowing. I've posted them as guest updates this week because all my time and energy at the moment is going to producing and editing the sponsored caning videos which we pledged in our fundraiser. I'm also doing a lot of activism, organising and media appearances - to raise awareness of the new laws, and fight for the right of porn performers, producers, and all sex workers to do the work they choose without being criminalised and stigmatised. The Backlash sponsored caning films will all be released on Dreams of Spanking as soon as they're ready - the first one shows me caning Amelia Jane Rutherford, and will go online this Friday.

Meanwhile, thanks again to everyone who contributed to the fundraiser - the money will be invaluable in helping Backlash support producers who are targeted by ATVOD and forced to comply with the new regulations. You can still donate to Backlash here if you missed your chance before - and legal fees are expensive, so please give as much as you can afford.

While I'm focussing so much energy on the campaign, I could also use your support. Please help me continue to do this important work by joining Dreams of Spanking. For only £20 you can own our extensive archive of exclusive, members-only scenes - which are all available for you to download and re-watch as often as you wish. Behind the scenes videos, out-takes and performer interviews are also included in the same price (an idea I can credit to Northern Spanking). Please help us keep UK spanking porn alive and thriving, despite the efforts of the government to shut us down.

Amateur spanking porn

One of the core themes of Dreams of Spanking is the difference between fantasy and reality. Especially when fantasising about a non-consensual punishment, it's importance to make it clear that fantasy is just make-believe, and that in real life, we enjoy consensual spanking for fun and mutual satisfaction.

This year I've had fun sharing some more candid moments from my private life. Pushing out a new film every week, I sometimes feel that I have to compromise on quality. When I'm producing fantasy fiction, I want the production values to be as high as possible within my limited budget. I've decided to prioritise quality over quantity. Instead of trying to release a new ambitious spanking storyline every week, I want to take the time to make my professional costume productions as good as possible, and space them out with simpler videos that show real life amateur spanking. After all, both sides of spanking are equally precious to me - the elaborate invented scenarios that excite my mind, and the simpler play with others that makes my body feel good. Fiction and real life; fantasy and reality.

Our latest video is an example of this. It's an over the knee hand spanking, pure and simple. No high concept, no characters, no roleplay - just me, offering up my bare bottom and breathing into the pain.

Perhaps you'll enjoy the moment where I breathlessly suggest that he spank my thighs - and then writhe, wriggle and cry mercy as the stinging pain is sharper than I expect. Maybe it's the classic elegance of my black thigh-high stockings and suspenders that will do it for you, or the firm rubs and squeezes my spanker gives me to soothe the sting. Or perhaps you'll enjoy watching the colour deepen and intensify on my bottom and the tops of my legs until they glow hot red.

I'm all for complicated plotlines, but sometimes it's nice to simplify and go back to basics. A firm hand, a comfortable lap, a hard over the knee spanking - and the serenity that follows.

I think the photoset that went up on the site last week - Surprised in the Garden - is one of the best galleries on this site to date. I certainly had great fun shooting it with Thomas Cameron and Michael Darling, and Nimue Allen captured every hot moment in beautiful compositions.

This scene is based on my oldest fantasies - of being surprised by my lover in the garden, tied up and blindfolded. It's not until I'm being punished that I realise there is not just one two pair of hands caressing and smacking my body, but two...

This scene is actually inspired by an erotic story I read when I was ten years old. This was a milestone moment for me because although I already knew I was fascinated by corporal punishment, I thought I was the only person on the planet who had this fetish. It wasn't until I discovered the theme in an naughty book that I realised other people eroticised spanking and caning too.

I thought it would be fun to record a video blog talking about the significance of this scene for me - and reading a snippet of the erotic story that inspired it.

I hadn't read that excerpt since I was a child, and it was surprising to discover the ways in which my memory of it were different - and the ways in which it was still incredibly fresh in my mind. Our recreation turned out pretty different, in the end, but I still find both scenes very hot.

Do you have a similar "milestone moment" when you realised that you were not alone in your kink? And if that was an encounter with a kinky fantasy or reference to corporal punishment, does that scenario still have the power to arouse you?
