A gay old caning film

Blake scolds Charlie J Forrest at Dreams of Spanking

It’s almost always a shame to take sex too seriously. Let’s face it, fucking is kind of an inherently ridiculous thing to do: it’s messy, it’s often unflattering, it’s practically inevitable that someone will get a painful cramp at an inopportune moment. The ability to laugh with our sexual partners is what makes all these things okay, and it can be a bonding experience in and of itself.

So sometimes I think porn could do with a bit more humour. Not all the time, of course - we all love our severe, headspacey scenes too - but why shouldn’t porn sometimes be funny? Life is funny. Sex is often funny. If porn is an art form in its own right (and I believe that it is, or can be) there’s no reason it shouldn’t imitate life in all its ridiculous glory.

Blake canes Charlie J Forrest on the bare bottom at Dreams of Spanking

A Spot Of Bother is a male/male bare bottom spanking film in a historical setting. It is also, at times, genuinely laugh-out-loud funny. It’s a sort of Jeeves & Wooster (or perhaps Holmes & Watson) period pastiche, a queer trans sendup with a sense of humour as uniquely British as caning itself. “They insulted the Queen, I suppose?”, asks Blake at one point, trying to work out what has caused his dutiful manservant to act with such uncharacteristic impulsivity. You can see the twitch of Charlie’s lips trying to keep a straight face as he replies: “In a manner of speaking, sir.” 

This is a guest director film, produced and edited by Charlie Forrest himself. He clearly had as much fun with the editing as he and Blake with the ad libbing. The result is a rollicking gay spanking film with some jolly good jokes. That doesn’t take away from the hard caning we all love to see here; in my opinion, it adds to it. This scene is as well-rounded as Charlie's bottom, and there’s no denying that Blake makes a fabulous queen.

How to make a severe Victorian birching film

There’s always something endearing about behind-the-scenes material. I’m rather fond of that photograph of Robert Powell taken during the filming of Jesus of Nazareth: the actor, strapped to his cross, is wrapped in a blanket and being given a drink and a cigarette by a crew member between takes, which deliciously demystifies the whole thing. There are some similar enjoyably fourth-wall-breaking moments in this excellent look at the making of Mrs Smith’s Method: Pandora strolling into shot in modern t-shirt and knickers to give a bit of directorial advice; the discussions over how to achieve the impression of an utterly frenzied birching of Amelia Jane’s bare arse without going beyond what would be safe, sane and consensual for the actor.

Mrs Smith's Method, released a couple of years ago, is one of the more ambitious and elaborate Dreams of Spanking productions. It pushes many buttons: sly pokes at Victorian moralizing, hypocrisy and weirdness, especially via Molly Malone’s fabulous portrayal of a thrashing-obsessed, for-your-own-good religious loon; the ritualistic elements involved in hardcore discipline, such as kissing the implement and thanking your chastiser, and the closing blissed-out, yielding contrition. However, seeing the cast interact between takes as themselves is endearing and a good reminder that, no matter how dark the scene you want to play out might be, it can still be enjoyable fun entered into with full knowledge and great enthusiasm.

I’ve recently been dabbling in spanking shoots again myself and, along with the indisputable fun it is to yell at a cute girl and spank her pert bum till it’s glowing and hot, the laughs and hugs and the reassurance afterwards that she enjoyed it, that it was fun working together, and that we’re all good, are as important a part of the experience as the actual scene.

Severe punishment, the sort that comes with a few darker overtones of wretched humiliation and the crushing of a free spirit, may not be to everyone’s taste, though it’s definitely hotter than hot for a lot of people. I’d have to admit that my own preferences run more to the knockabout comedy end of the spanking scene, so I probably like this making-of version slightly more than the original. It’s also a good way of showing just how much work goes into the making of a porn film that’s a little bit more ambitious than most, and would be just as helpful as a masterclass in making your own historical romp, should you be so inclined. Mrs Smith Behind The Scenes is certainly a terrific companion piece to Mrs Smith’s Method: watch them back to back, if you have a free afternoon. As to whether you prefer to tantalise yourself with the making-of and then watch the film proper, or enjoy the feature first and then go back and see how it was all done, that’s entirely up to you.

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.

New update: David's Strict Governess behind the scenes

David's Strict Governess - Behind the Scenes with David Weston and Pandora Blake

David's Strict Governess: Behind the scenes

Performers: Pandora Blake, David Weston

An in-depth look at the process of shooting David's first spanking video. David muses on how surreal it is to finally be on a spanking set after watching so many films online. He and Pandora negotiate the scenario - and Pandora takes rather a lot of enjoyment in having him over her knee! David: "I think I can honestly say this is the first time it's taken two people to adjust my underwear." Plus some bustle-wiggling as Pandora plays with her petticoats... Pandora briefs David and tells him he can cut any time. During the scene she stops regularly to check in on him, and David reveals that the hardest thing is trying not to smile!

I loved putting together my Victorian governess costume for this scene - especially improvising a bustle with a net petticoat under my skirt. I love that the Victorians loved bums so much that they invented the bustle to make them look bigger!

This behind the scenes video is worth watching if you're interested in how someone reacts to shooting their first ever spanking scene on film - and how Nimue and I help David through it. My favourite moment in this is at 7:30, when David confesses he's enjoying the spanking so much it's an effort to keep a straight face...

Inspiration from Spanking Blog

Spanking Blog is always a good source of inspiration for spanking films. For instance, check out this amazing true story of a Victorian quack doctor who roamed the country administering spankings to unlucky patients:

He was a tall, lean, lank-looking Yankee, with red hair and whiskers, a light gray eye, and claimed to cure all diseases by “spatting” the patient, or the diseased part thereof, with cold water on his bare palm, the use of a battery, and a pill.

“The Spanker” was not read in medicine. His treatment was the most ridiculous and repulsive of the absurdities of the nineteenth century. The patient was stripped of his clothes, and often so severely spanked as to compel him, or her, to cry out with pain.

Youran the Spanker

What a fantastic premise for a darkly comic period piece!

I also enjoyed this glimpse into a schoolgirl cross-dressing scenario which has real promise as a spanking film:

Amy has decided to sneak into St Hugh’s to see her new boyfriend. She’s managed to get hold of their uniform so she can go in disguise.

Schoolgirl dressed as a schoolboy

Regular viewers will know how much I love a bit of gender-bending or cross-dressing in spanking scenarios - particularly as twists on traditional school or military punishment themes.

The MacKenzies update is just a cute softcore vignette of the girls in their dorm, giggling and discussing the plan as they strip and get changed. But can you imagine this premise as a spanking film? One has to wonder how Amy got hold of a boy's uniform - did she enlist one of her boyfriend's friends to steal some spare items for her from lost property or the sanitorium, or is there an unlucky lower-schooler wandering around in his pants? If she was caught sneaking into the boy's school to visit her boyfriend, I'm sure the true story would come out ... and it would provide a fabulous excuse for a hot sequence in which she was punished while wearing boy's uniform!

Why I love historical spanking scenes

You know how it is when you get a certain spanking scenario in your head – often it influences the fantasies you have over the next few days. That look from a spankee in pain, that authoritative turn of phrase from a particularly strict disciplinarian, that shot of a bright red arse framed so perfectly by pulled-down pants: these are the things that tend to stay with me.

And what's stayed with me over the last week or so is the thought of historical spankings. Being taken back in time to when authority figures could physically punish, and when the clipped tones of a Victorian schoolmaster might have me trembling with a combination of fear and deep arousal. So what is it about historical spankings that's so sexy?

The costumes

I doubt anyone would disagree with this – least of all a Dreams of Spanking member, given Pandora's talent for finding beautiful outfits for the site's performers. My favourite of all the outfits on this site is the amazing pair of split Victorian bloomers worn by Lola Marie in 'The Scholarship Girl'. The scene is a classic school beating, with Lola subjected to corporal punishment by schoolmistress Pandora Blake after displaying behaviour that is certainly not fitting for a scholarship girl.

Pandora's dressed in a stern, high-necked black dress, which somehow makes it all the more humiliating for Lola as she has to expose her bottom through the split bloomers before taking several hard strokes with the tawse.

The scenarios

One of the things I love about the performers on Dreams of Spanking is that they add unique twists to any scenario. And with a historical spanking scene, there is so much more flexibility for unusual situations and ideas you may never have thought about before.

Take the Magician's Apprentice, for example – this two-part spanking photoset accompanies a piece of original spanking erotica written by Adele Haze. In part one, Sophie goes home with a handsome boy she met at the fair, although when things heat up between them she doesn't expect what happens next. In part two poor Sophie is initiated into the magician's world and becomes his apprentice – meaning she can be physically punished by her new master the magician.

The dialogue

When I mentioned I wanted to write about historical spankings on Twitter the other day, one Dreams follower replied quickly recommending The Stableboy, and I have to agree that this is one of my favourite classic historical spanking scenes in the Dreams of Spanking archive. One of the stand out sexiest things about this, I think, is the dialogue.

Pandora and Thomas are both smoothly commanding, and use their instructions to build the electric tension and sizzling hotness prior to the punishment itself.

“Go into the house. Set out the chaise – you know where it goes. Fetch down the strap.”

So much of this scene is enhanced by the verbal chastisement that goes along with the strapping. Oh, and of course it also helps that Michael bravely takes what looks to me like a very intense punishment with the leather strap.

The air of authority

Perhaps I've read too many old school novels, but it seems like back in the day, authority was just a lot more... well... authoritative. At my own school, despite being a very good girl, I could have chosen to run wild with nothing more to worry about than a detention or a hundred lines to write.

As evidenced by this amazing Victorian birching scene, though, authority can be so much more intimidating when it's backed up by physical punishment. Thomas Cameron plays a character who is not angry, just disappointed, and yet his disappointment is strong enough to give Michael Darling some incredibly painful-looking strokes with an old-fashioned birch.

Old-fashioned Victorian birching at Dreams of Spanking

David's strict governess takes him over the knee...

It's time to give a proper welcome to new male spanking performer David Weston. Having shown us his gorgeous naked bottom in an introductory photoset (in which, I have to say, I fell in love with his sexy smile just as much as his lovely bum), he's showing us even more of his good points in this classic bare bottom Victorian spanking film.

David plays a young man punished by a very strict governess (Pandora Blake). He's suitably sheepish and nervous as she berates him for clumsy behaviour during his lessons, before ordering him to drop his trousers and underwear and bend over her knee.

What follows is a thorough hand spanking which had me wincing alongside David. He grimaces, and holds his breath, taking his bare bottom spanking with commendable stoicism, all while Pandora continues to scold him in the stern, clipped tones of a Victorian governess.

It must be humiliating for a young man to be taken over the knee and punished as if he were a little boy, and David plays the part with a lovely combination of trepidation and humility. After the spanking, Pandora orders him to stand, naked from the waist down, so she can continue to lecture him. He must then stand facing the wall, with his red and tingling bottom on display, to think about his behaviour - even though while he is standing there, servants of the house might pass by and witness his disgrace.

If you loved this classic historical spanking scene, you should definitely check out David's solo photoshoot for more super-hot pictures of him bending over, and showing off his assets - and his incredibly filthy grin. And we would love it if you could take the time to leave a comment and welcome him to Dreams of Spanking. Taking your first ever spanking on video and then having your body and acting skills exposed to the world wide web is just about as nerve-wracking as facing a real punishment - so add a comment below if you want to let David know how much you enjoyed his first ever spanking film. There's more of this gorgeous new spankee to come, and we can't wait to share the rest of his scenes with you!

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!

Belted while stepmother looks on

When this week's video arrived in my inbox I was so excited. I've really been looking forward to this final chapter in our Victorian spanking trilogy, in which both Alexander Knight and Molly Malone have already felt the sting of old-fashioned domestic discipline.

In chapter one Alex was spanked by his strict stepmother, and Molly took him over her knee with a distinctly gleeful delight, keen to establish herself as a powerful force in the household. In chapter two, Molly's husband Dr Richard Barton returned home and corrected his wife with some calmly authoritative marital discipline for taking matters into her own hands.

In this final chapter, both strict stepmother and stern pater familias present a united front against young Alex. The poor boy is forced to bend over for a thrashing with the leather belt, while a triumphant Molly witnesses his humiliation.

Richard and Molly are utterly intimidating as they stand together by the fireplace – exactly as proper Victorian disciplinarians should. Stern, calm, authoritative, you can tell by Alex's trembling voice that he knows he won't be able to argue his way out of punishment.

The build-up to the beating is thrilling – Dr Richard Barton scolds Alex sternly about his behaviour, peppered with all the language that makes the Victorian period such fun for for spanking play. Alexander is told that he looks like a 'dandified fop' - and Dr Barton isn't furious, – he's 'very very displeased'.

What sends shivers down my spine is the very real look of fear on Alexander's face. I get the impression that he's so deep into his role that he's no longer entirely acting - the stern Dr Barton instils a genuine terror - exactly the kind you'd feel if you were really standing before him, waiting to be given a hard thrashing with the belt.

As he bends over, nervously presenting his bare bottom for the punishment, you can see that it is still red raw from the over the knee spanking he got from Molly Malone in chapter one. However, this beating puts that one in the shade.

Alex's facial expressions make for compelling watching. When someone's getting spanked I like to know just how much it's affecting them - if you're the same then Alexander doesn't disappoint. From his terrified face after the first stroke to his gasps of shock as the belt lashes his bottom, you can tell the punishment is a severe one.

This thrashing is made even hotter by our knowledge of the relationship between the characters. Unrepentant Molly watches with a face like the cat that got the cream. She had previously threatened Alexander that her husband would take her side - and now she's totally vindicated. There can be few things more embarrassing for a young man than to be punished while a woman watches. Dr Barton is belting the boy because he believes it's the right thing to do, but Molly seems to take a sadistic pleasure in Alexander's suffering, and enjoys his cries of pain with undisguised delight.

Alexander does his best to be stoic and brave, but towards the end he can't help it - this is such a hard belt whipping that he breaks position and chokes back some sobs. At the ninth stroke I was wondering whether he'd make it to the end without begging for mercy.
