We've got two amazing free spanking videos up recently, both starring the inestimable Ariel Anderssen.
Twice now we've been able to see her stripped naked for the cane. In the first film, she plays a naive backpacker who has to undergo a severe judicial punishment. The second is the first sponsored caning film from Pandora's fundraiser to raise money for Backlash, and in it Ariel isn't playing a character, but taking a caning as her own darling, dry-humoured self to support the campaign against the new UK pornography laws. If you've been under a rock for the last couple of months (or if you've only just joined us - welcome to the party!) you can catch up on some of the background, as well as the fightback, in Pandora's latest blog post.
If you're new to the site, one of the best ways to get acquainted with the performers is to check out their amazing work in the archives. The Backlash sponsored caning video starts with a personal chat between Ariel and Pandora, in which Ariel explains that it's much easier for her to take a beating when she's in the guise of her spanking persona Amelia Jane Rutherford - who is, unlike sweet, submissive Ariel, a haughty brat who thoroughly deserves a beating. Going through Amelia Jane's old scenes, it's clear in most of them that she's in trouble for very good reason. Let's have a look at some of the ways Amelia Jane gets her just desserts...
Sneaking out of the house late at night to go to an 'unsavoury' gathering? Strict governess Pandora Blake has no intention with letting the girls get away with it. Amelia Jane was the one who persuaded Caroline Grey to join her on the escapade, so when they are caught, it's Amelia who gets punished first - a hard over the knee spanking from her governess followed by a flurry of sharp smacks with the paddle.
Both naughty girls get their turn over Miss Blake's knee - and their gorgeous split Victorian bloomers perfectly frame their glowing red bottoms after a thoroughly deserved spanking.
If you liked that one, then you'll enjoy the sequel, in which Amelia and Caroline enlist the help of household servant Will Savage to carry out one of their naughty schemes. This time the punishment is harsher, with Pandora Blake wielding a cruel-looking cane.
When you're told to keep your nose out of someone else's punishment, but you keep sneaking peeks as they get their bare bottom paddled, you can expect retribution. Well, that's how it works in Texas, anyway. Amelia Jane is so intrigued by Pandora Blake's punishment that she can't help staring.
Of course, her curiosity only gets her into trouble too, and soon she's got her skirt up round her waist and her knickers down taking a hard paddling herself.
This is, I think, the ultimate in deserved spankings, and I suspect this character was incredibly fun to play. Amelia Jane plays a horrible colleague, getting her office mates Pandora Blake and Caroline Grey riled up by her selfish behaviour at work. She takes credit for their good work and acts haughty and smug in the face of their justified anger, so it's really fun to watch her awful character get utterly defeated when they take justice into their own hands.
Bent over the kitchen counter, Amelia Jane endures a hard hairbrush spanking from both vindictive ladies at once, as Pandora and Caroline take it in turns to dish out painful smacks in quick succession.
One of the great things about interviews like the ones at the start and end of Ariel's Sponsored Caning is that they give you an insight into the performer's motivations and desires - what kind of spankings they like, what their limits are, and what they love about a particular scene. I think porn's always hotter when it's guided by the performer's kinks, because you get to see exactly what turns someone on, and watch people doing their favourite things in front of the camera.
Ariel was very brave during her sponsored caning of 25 hard strokes, but watching it you get the distinct impression that without the character of naughty Amelia Jane to hide behind, it hurt a lot more. When you browse our archive you'll find out what our performers like best - whether that's the type of beating, the strength or implement or - in this case - just how much your character deserves it.
Our latest film is based on a true story, and when I tell you that it's to do with probation officers and caning as punishment, I hope you'll be as intrigued as I was.
First things first – check out this hot F/F caning scene, and see if you can guess which elements of it are inspired by real life. When you've finished watching, read on for the details...
In this scene, Molly Malone plays the fierce (and incredibly judgemental) probation officer who seems to be putting some pretty unreasonable demands on Nimue Allen. When she tells Nimue that she must submit to housing inspector visits once a week, Nimue kicks back – and I think rightly so!
But Molly's got an idea up her sleeve to help 'persuade' Nimue to comply – she sends Nimue to the cupboard in the corner of the room, and orders her to open it and look inside.
Now, here's where the porn film diverges from the real-life story. Naturally, because it's Dreams of Spanking, the scene builds to a painful and deeply sexy climax, as Molly uses the cane on Nimue's bare bottom – searing hot red stripes into her bare flesh as she winces and gasps.
In real life, though, the cane wasn't used except as a rather clever deterrent. Here's the original story, as told to Pandora by a Dreams of Spanking member:
“She was on a probation order (divorced women with kids then could be put on an order in contested circumstances to protect the kids). In the early days she was very resentful, and when her probation officer (who she came to adore by the way, they ended up great friends) asked for an assurance from her on something and she refused to give it, he thought for a moment, then told her to walk to a cupboard, open it, look inside - then close it and come back and sit down.
She went off in a strop, opened it, took in the long thin school cane, and in her words "nearly wet my knickers" - then returned to her seat and promptly answered in the positive when the question was put again. She wasn't to know that probation officers lost the power to use the cane - on juveniles - in the 1970s, he just never cleared his cupboard."
I found this completely fascinating – it's surprising just how recently people were allowed to use canes for corporal punishment in the UK. As someone for whom the cane has only ever had sexual connotations, I can't imagine what it would be like to have the threat of this hanging over you for real. It's certainly enough to truly shock Nimue Allen's character, and give even Molly's sadistic probation officer pause for thought.
I think the scene works even better because the time period in which it's set is so close to that where caning might have been a possibility. While corporal punishment for juvenile offenders was phased out in practice in the mid-20th century, a bit of Googling tells me that it wasn't until 1978 that the European Court of Human Rights explicitly ruled that judicial birching contravened article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. And, of course, it took much longer for corporal punishment to be phased out in schools and in the home.
At the time this film is set (the mid-1980s) corporal punishment was technically still legal in all schools in the UK – it was only phased out of state schools in 1987, and remained legal in private schools until as late as 1999. So it's pretty plausible that Nimue (who by the way sports some pretty spectacular eighties hair in this) wouldn't be totally sure that it was illegal for her probation officer to beat her.
It's pretty shocking to me that punishment caning was only fully abolished very recently in the UK. Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that only last year Justice Secretary Chris Grayling (a man who wouldn't recognise human rights if they gave him an illegal six-of-the-best) seriously suggested the reintroduction of corporal punishment for juvenile offenders – the same kind of treatment that Nimue is subjected to in this film.
Maybe it's my upbringing, and the fact that I've never been caned as punishment, but I always tend to assume that the cane, slipper, hand spanking, and other forms of authorised corporal punishment died out in the 1950s. This scene is a bit of a history lesson as well as a seriously hot F/F caning – and because the punishment is so deeply unfair (not to mention illegal) I'm delighted that Nimue comes back with her badass eighties side-ponytail and gets her revenge at the end of the scene. What kind of revenge? Well, you'll have to watch it to find out...
Ron Beastly lives up to his name this week, because in our latest film he plays an actual wild beast – growling, furry, dangerous and almost impossible to tame.
This scene is a pretty rare thing – a kink that's almost totally new to me. But the more I think about it, and google around beast porn and beast sex play, the more of it I find.
Beast porn has a pretty long and colourful history, and when you start looking you'll find it in a fair few places. From Marian Engel's famous 1976 novel 'Bear' (in which a librarian falls in love with, and is ravished by, an actual bear) to tamer modern hints, like the sexy werewolves in the Twilight books. I know it's not really on to mention Twilight, but I'm throwing it in there because it's surprising just how often particular kinks bubble up in our popular culture.
In fact, when you start looking for it, there's plenty of beast porn on the internet, but most of the fantasies are either animated or slashfic (there's plenty of Beauty and the Beast porn written by eager online writers, for example) – it's rare to be able to watch a beast fantasy played out on screen by real people.
Ron makes a perfect beast – partly because, with his furry body draped in more furs, and chained up in a sleeping pose, he looks every inch the slumbering creature. But more so because beast play is one of Ron's own fantasies. He suggested the idea for this scene, and so it's his own desires that are played out – giving him the chance to be the beast that he fantasises about.
As Seani Love tries to tame him, he's whipped, collared, and led around the room on all fours. He's even fed strips of meat from a bowl, as his master alternates the food treats with whippings in an attempt to make the beast behave.
Ron's own take on the scene can be found on his blog here – and it's well worth a read, to get a glimpse inside his head as he's performing as 'the beast.'
Next we did a scene that was a suggestion from me, in which I was a beast that was captured by a magician who wanted to harness my power to use to his own ends. I really got into the performance, though it got pretty intense for me, partly because it was very physical and partly because there were a couple of moments where it felt very real. I realised that, while it was fun to let the beast out of me, I really don’t want to be doing scenes where they are punished and subdued. I would really like to do a scene that was a kind of sequel to this, where the magician’s wife/daughter/whatever finds me tied up, cowering and subdued, then unties me and encourages me to be wild and to ravage her in a rather exciting and filthy manner (if anyone wants to shoot this let me know!). I was a little bit shaken afterwards, but the after care was awesome, with Pandora giving me a marvelous happy spank then feeding me carrot sticks and hummus while I was curled up on her lap (do all directors provide this service?).
The happy aftercare spanking Ron mentions was also captured on film, and if you're interested you can watch it here.
Ron's proposed follow-up, in which the beast is released from submission, and encouraged to ravish the kindly person who's released him, brings the fantasy neatly back round to the focus of much of the slashfic and other beast porn that I found in my research. Beast fantasy seems, for the most part, to eroticise the wild, untameable nature of the beast. The darker things that can be done by creatures that have no moral agency, no code, and which are essentially untameable.
I like the fact that this scene is a bit ambiguous as to whether the magician succeeds in taming the beast. He can whip and punch the creature into submission, put on a collar and lead and to all intents and purposes look like he's subdued it, but ultimately we can tell from Ron's growls and snarls that he's still a wild animal. Perhaps a wild animal just looking for a chance to let his instincts take over again...
Sometimes a lover will whisper a particular fantasy in my ear, and my heart beats extra-fast because it presses exactly the same buttons as fantasies I've had myself in the past. This week's scene is that feeling made flesh.
Alex Reynolds likes edgy scenes and harsh roleplay where there's a struggle or an abuse of authority. She likes disproportionate punishments and begging and screaming and beating.
And so do I.
'Playing Truant' doesn't just float my boat, it's almost measure for measure one of the scenes that's played out in my head ever since... well... ever since I started fantasising.
Paul Kennedy plays an angry, predatory truant officer, who's been watching Alex behave like – his words – a 'little slut.' She skips school and fools around with boys, and he's been watching her, clearly enjoying the show and scheming how to take advantage. He collects enough information that he can not only scold her, but blackmail her to submit to his violent, nasty urges.
As she squeals and begs him to stop, he punishes her far more severely than she deserves – a vicious tawsing across her naked buttocks and oh-so-sensitive thighs.
Alex Reynolds and Paul Kennedy are a couple in real life, and I really appreciate their candid discussion in the performer interviews accompanying this film. Alex explains that this is the kind of scenario she enjoys most – rough scenes where Paul abuses his authority to dish out cruel punishments. Paul's demeanour in the interview is so different from his character in the film that it's clear this sort of role is very different to how he actually is – and both partners explain what they find so liberating, and so rewarding, about exploring these different roles in scene.
Paul's character is certainly a nasty piece of work in this scene, as he strips Alex to the waist and roughly fondles her breasts, before bending her over for the tawse. He frequently shoves a hand between her legs as she squirms away, and grins with evil delight as he paints vivid red stripes onto her bottom and thighs. And in case you're worried, the camera stays on the couple after Pandora calls “cut”, to show Alex snuggling up to her lover, thanking him for bringing her desires to life.
I might start using this film as an instructional video. As someone whose most often-used phrase in bed is 'be mean to me', I've now got this bookmarked so that when I want to show just how mean I can say 'like this'. Beat me like I'm a naughty schoolgirl caught playing truant. Beat me like I'm a helpless young woman entrapped by a very nasty man.
It's not often we get to see a spanking film that shows sexual coercion as well as corporal punishment – and it might make me uneasy if the love Alex and Paul have for each other didn't shine out of the screen. If you are worried, I recommend you watch the interview before you watch the film – it's an in-depth discussion of kinky sexuality by two very articulate, experienced players, who are perfectly comfortable sharing their darker side with each other – and with us.
It's a seriously sexy treat for me to see have two talented performers act out something that's so closely matches one of my own fantasies, and if you're keen on this type of edgy, harsh punishment then I'm sure you'll love it too. From the words Paul chooses to humiliate Alex, to her well-acted misery and fear, there is so much in this scene to love.
I don't think there's any way to end this post other than with a huge thank you to Paul and Alex, for sharing this aspect of their play dynamic, and for such a smoking hot interpretation of the things that happen in my head.
Have you had a similar experience with a particular Dreams of Spanking scene? I love the idea of sharing a specific film with a lover, and saying 'look! This is what my fantasy looks like!' Which scene is your closest match?
Can you tell that Talia Lane and David Weston are a couple in real life? I think it's hard not to, because the whole of their first film together is infused with a close flirtation and a crackling chemistry, which makes their school romance all the more real, and all the more intense.
I get a bit nostalgic about these school moments – when there was a guy I fancied so much I couldn't stop thinking about him in class. A guy who I just needed to touch me. Those stolen moments – kisses and gropes when teachers weren't looking ... sigh.
Talia and David play a couple just like this – horny students with ties askew, shirts untucked, and eyes only for each other. As is to be expected when you're young and hot for someone, they fondle and kiss behind the bike sheds for so long that they miss the start of lessons.
They hardly care, of course – they're far too wrapped up in their own teenage world of giggles and snogs. But this is Dreams of Spanking, after all, so from the moment their lips touch we know they're going to get caught by a strict teacher. Enter Pandora...
Pandora (aka the stern Ms Blake) is formidable in this scene, but then she has to be to keep the pair in line. Talia and David joke around even as Ms Blake explains that they're in for a punishment more severe than the usual detention or lines.
They can't quite bring themselves to believe that she'll put them over her knee for a hand spanking, and as a result their insouciance just gets them into deeper trouble.
Everyone remembers those kids at school who – no matter how stern the teacher – just would not behave. Talia and David in this scene are exactly like that - holding hands and messing around and making exactly the kind of exasperating retorts that teenagers seem to think are oh-so-funny. They play that casual 'you can't touch me' attitude to perfection - to the point where I, as a bit of a meanie, couldn't wait for Pandora to dish out the spanking just to show them she means business.
When she does, Talia's shock and outrage is amazing.
This is Talia's first ever spanking scene - in fact, she says in her interview that it's her first ever proper spanking. David's starred in a few Dreams of Spanking videos before (I particularly enjoyed David's Strict Governess) and he was keen to share the experience with her, and watch her discover why he loves spanking so much.
Taking the behind-the-scenes connection together with the scenario, it's a gorgeous shared moment. I loved seeing the dynamic between the couple as they stay strong against the teacher determined to punish them. Keep watching after the credits for more out-takes, including Talia's infectious giggles - and her genuine reactions to her first ever punishment spanking.
That David and Talia are a real couple serves to highlight one of the best things about this type of joint scene. When two lovers or close friends are punished together, there's an added dynamic: the support and sympathy between the two spankees. There's an amazing example of it in Punishment by Proxy, too, in which Pandora and Jimmy are forced – against their wishes – to actually punish each other.
As David and Talia comfort each other you can see that what started as humiliation is actually making them stronger. Initially David is reluctant to pull down his pants in front of his young girlfriend, but by the end the pair are united in solidarity against their teacher.
Facing the wall and baring their bright red bottoms after their spanking, they exchange shy, loving smiles. You know, I'm not sure they've entirely learned their lesson. Some things are just worth doing, no matter what the punishment.
In my head, I divide the scenes on Dreams of Spanking into two categories. The first is "how I play in real life". You can find scenes like this under the consensual, playful and positive tags - spanking that is fun, informal and mutually fulfilling, with people I like a lot. The other category is "what I fantasise about". These fantasies are nothing like my real life play preferences. I fantasise about serious spankings in dark, fictional contexts, often with an unwilling spankee.
My whole concept of ethical production of spanking porn centers around consent. It's very important to me that the performers in my productions have a say in what they do on camera, are treated well on the day, and come away happy. When I'm filming a fun, sexy spanking between me and my friends or lovers, this enjoyment shines through. But what if we're acting the parts of characters and creating a drama that doesn't have a happy ending?
That's where behind the scenes material comes in.
My approach to behind the scenes content is twofold. Firstly, it's important to have videos and photos available on Dreams of Spanking - and not tucked away out of sight in a members area, either, but right there on the tour pages. Performer interviews, out-takes and candid snaps all help to create transparency and honesty about the shooting process, and invite you in to watch how we made our darker, edgier scenes. Not only can you see which scenes have behind the scenes material and which don't before you join, and read a synopsis of each out-takes video, you can watch our free performer interviews in full.
For instance, The Workaholic, our latest M/F film starring Erica Scott and Paul Kennedy, has a 12 minute out-takes and "making of" video showing you the process behind the product, and a 9 minute free interview with Erica.
The Workaholic: Behind the scenes
Out-takes and making of video for The Workaholic! Shooting with a mirror in the background is not straightforward. Why didn't we just cover it? Lots of snark and giggling from Erica and Alex, scene negotiation between Erica and Paul, silly voices, and a hilarious misunderstanding that resulted in Erica stoically staying quiet during 30 seconds of hairbrushing - for no reason. Torture! But there was lots of hugs and post-scene euphoria once we'd wrapped. Erica is a true spanking star. How she took that hairbrushing while still delivering witty one-liners I have no idea.
Who doesn't love spanking out-takes? You can browse all our scenes which include behind the scenes material here.
Pandora Blake interviews Erica Scott
I was absolutely delighted to get the chance to shoot with the renowned Erica Scott in LA this year. This lady is a spanking legend! We took some time after the shoot to chat about how we met, blogging, her books, life, love and spanking. You can find out more about Erica at ericascottlls.blogspot.com.
The other element, just as important, is off-site. In my opinion one of the cornerstones of ethical porn production, the thing that makes it possible for fairtrade porn to be trustworthy and transparent, is social media. I first developed these ideas in my blogpost from 2008, Cumshots, spanking and the role of blogging in feminist porn.
For the first five years of my spanking career I was working as a performer for other producers, and if I felt uncomfortable on a spanking shoot, I know I wouldn't always have felt comfortable saying so in the end-of-day interview, where you are often expected to smile for the camera before you get paid. Blogging, on the other hand, is a different matter. I have never asked or paid a performer who's filmed for Dreams of Spanking to blog about the experience. If anyone chooses to do so, it is in their own time, and their own words. The one or two times in my career I've ever had a bad shoot experience, I didn't blog about it. I was wary of being accused of lying or causing "drama", so I kept quiet and warned fellow models away in person instead. Any performer who writes about a shoot is promoting the producer they worked with, and you wouldn't want to do that unless you still liked them.
So if you want to tell if a spanking film was produced in a fun and fairtrade way, don't take the director's word for it. Any ethical porn director will provide info about all their performers, including links to their blog, website and twitter if they have one. Click the links and read the blog posts, tweets, and facebook posts by the performers themselves.
I'm lucky that so many of my performers are enthusiastic bloggers. Erica has really out-done herself with this scene. You can read her original write-up of the shoot experience in April, written only a day later. More recently, she's also posted an announcement of the video release, a fun post about the behind the scenes video, and a new post last night linking to a new model spotlight featuring Erica Scott on The Spanking Galleries, which includes lots of previews of The Workaholic.Thank you Erica, you really are spoiling us!

God I love a good ruck. A back-and-forth row that screams passion just as much as a good shag does. If given the choice between a calm and gentle relationship with lots of cuddles on the sofa, or an angry, feisty, plate-smashing partnership, I’d definitely go for the latter.
Erica Scott and Paul Kennedy play a stunning example of that kind of heated relationship in this scene, and I can’t decide what’s better – the passion with which she begs him to give her sexual satisfaction, or the frustration she howls face-down on the bed when he responds by giving her a beating instead.
This scene was shot while Pandora was in Los Angeles, and it turns out it was a bit of a surprise one – you can read the back story here, incuding how they came up with the plot. Pandora’s really glad she got to shoot with Erica, and I reckon when you’ve watched this you’ll be delighted too!
Workaholic is not for the faint-hearted. It starts with a fairly traditional idea – the lonely wife trying to seduce her workaholic husband by dressing in deeply sexy lingerie and surprising him in the bedroom. But it quickly gets very dark, as Erica tears up her husband’s work proposal and angers him so much that only a thrashing with the leather belt will curb her rude behaviour.
There’s a glorious tension in the dynamic between Erica and Paul – we know that Erica’s frustrated, but we also know that when she impulsively rips up her husband’s work report, she’s getting herself in serious trouble. But Erica isn’t going to take her punishment without giving her husband a piece of her mind. With every smack on her bottom she’s giving angry retorts, fighting back and struggling as he pins her wrists behind her back. She might be being beaten, but that doesn’t mean she'll submit - and it certainly doesn’t mean she’s in the wrong.
Even as Paul is spanking her with a hairbrush, Erica is making her point - that’s what I mean about the back-and-forth. It’s not just a whacking in which one person dominates the other. Even as her bottom turns bright red and she squeals in outraged agony, Erica hurls witty comebacks and biting remarks at Paul to the point where he genuinely feels starts to feel guilty for neglecting her.
Since I've started working at Dreams of Spanking I've talked about ‘chemistry’ a lot. There's this idea that in porn, because people are professional performers, there can't be any real heat or passion. It's crap, of course - as you’ll know if you’re a Dreams member. While the tone and atmosphere of each scene is different, there are so many films where the chemistry between two performers just crackles off the screen. For instance, there's a similar sizzling passion in Bitch – which stars Pandora and Vix Vixxxen, and involves lots of heated kisses, slapping and hissed ‘fuck you’s.
With their angry battle of wills, Paul and Erica get you not just horny for the punishment itself (with a hand spanking and violent wooden hairbrush spanking over the knee, and a hard thrashing with the leather strap, it really is incredibly hot) but they also get you believing in the characters. I feel for Erica’s frustration, and winced when she tore up the report. And above all I was felt her genuine passion when she tried to get her husband to see her point of view.
As with many domestic disputes, there isn't any clear right or wrong here: sure, Erica’s given such a thorough beating it’ll be a long time before she destroys her husband’s work again, but I feel like Paul’s left feeling apologetic as well. There’s no clear winner in this fight (unless you count those of us who are lucky enough to watch it). But I’ll leave it to you to see if they kiss and make up at the end.
Storytelling is sexy. Whether it's written, audio, or dramatised on screen, storytelling can make the difference between something that's hot while you're watching it, and something that stays with you for a long time afterwards.
When I write the blogs for Dreams of Spanking, it's always important to pick the right key phrases so that people can find scenes during search. Judicial caning, hand spanking, over the knee, etc – it means that everyone knows what they'll get if they click through, and also serves to get people horny. If you're anything like me then the phrase 'over the knee' probably conjures instant hot mental images, so if a scene involves that kind of punishment I'll make sure to be clear about it.
But the problem with this kind of directness is that there are lots of other more nuanced things that might be particularly erotic, but that aren't as instantly recognisable. Let's face it – lots of people search for 'six strokes of the cane' but fewer people search for 'depersonalised punishment' or 'endurance punishment'. That's where storytelling comes in.
Depersonalised punishment is a really interesting thing to explore – the idea that someone is receiving a beating because they have to rather than because they specifically deserve it. Rituals and ceremonies are both great vehicles for this: the punishment can be impersonal because it's not an individual need but part of a greater story.
Our new film, The Clone's Training, is sci-fi porn that fully explores this concept. Clone number eight – played by the gorgeous David Weston – is being drilled in the nuance and detail of the behaviour of his progenitor, the Crown Prince. Identical genetically, the clone and the Crown Prince are impossible to tell apart just by looking. Birthmarks and scars have all been faithfully reproduced, and the clone now needs to perfect his behaviour so he can infiltrate the royal family and 'become' the prince.
Instructor Pandora Blake gives firm and strict directions: stride purposefully, keep your chin up, hand behind your back. Every movement, in other words, must match the Prince's own gestures. And, of course, he must also be marked so that any blemish on his body matches exactly the ones on the Crown Prince.
A punch to the hip should replicate a bruise the Prince sustained, but to truly fool the medical scanners, clone number eight will have to have a six stroke judicial caning, just as the military Prince received only the day before...
You don't often see sci-fi porn, probably because most people associate it with either huge budgets or crap special effects. But there's a wealth of hot potential in science fiction, and you don't need CGI to make the concept work. Dystopic worlds in which individuals must behave a certain way. 1984-style future societies where citizens unquestioningly obey. And, of course, the deliciously sexy possibilities of armies of identical human-looking robots (I'm looking at you, Battlestar Galactica, with your sexy Cylons) and cloning technology.
This film plays on the clone scenario to dish out an incredibly clinical, depersonalised punishment. While many will watch this because they just love caning stories, others will be aroused by the impersonal nature of the punishment itself. The medical officer and instructor, played by Pandora, is concerned only with shaping clone number eight into as close a copy of the Prince as possible. As a consequence, when she strikes him with the cane it's not in anger or lust, but with a calculated necessity. And when he bends over to receive the strokes it's not because he feels he deserves them, it's because he is so used to obedience that it doesn't occur to him to question why he has to go through this. He just knows he must fulfil his destiny.
When you've watched The Clone's Training, if you're after more porn with amazing stories, it's well worth exploring Dreams of Spanking's 'sci-fi and fantasy' tag. The Royal Wedding is an audio story about a medieval princess, featuring an amazing public flogging which – again – is an impersonal ritual, but has more significance when told from the perspective of the princess who endures it. I also really like 'Psychic Weapon C' – another sci-fi porn story, but here the pain is used as a means to extract information. It's not quite as clinical, because the victim is actively fighting against the beating, but the fact that it's administered by henchmen makes it – in my opinion – an awesome example of pain being dished out as a matter of unflinching necessity.
So that's why storytelling is sexy – it's not just about a simple act, it's about the before and after, the build up and the tension. I could watch any scene in which a beautiful guy gets six of the best, and be delighted to have seen it, but the story turns it into something I think about for a long time. Not least because I can't help imagining exactly what happened to clones one through seven...
How do you turn someone on using the fewest words possible? No pictures allowed, just words or it's cheating. I think there are a fair few three-word phrases that'd do it for me.
“Remove your knickers,” said in just the right commanding tone, for instance, would get me instantly aroused.
“Open your mouth,” perhaps even more so.
But right up there towards the top of the list would have to be:
When I watch the hot new updates every week for Dreams of Spanking, I try to pick out one or two things about each scene that strike me as particularly arousing. Whether it's the chemistry between the performers, some particularly intense language, or just how perfect someone's bottom looks in a particular position, there's usually one thing that jumps right out at me. This week's is no different: Two guys wrestling.
Brotherly Love features two brand new performers – Seani Love is the gorgeous top, and Ron Beastly is the equally gorgeous and deliciously bratty spankee. They play brothers - Ron, the playful and bratty younger brother and Seani, the older brother who is sick of his sibling sitting around the house doing nothing.
When Seani decides it's time to dish out some physical punishment to Ron to get him into line, Ron struggles against him. The subsequent tussle gives the scene a brilliant physical energy, and the coarse banter (“Brat.” “Fucker.”) only makes it hotter.
Sorry, have I gone on a bit too much about two guys wrestling? I fear I might have. If, like me, this is one of your big turnons, then after you've watched Brotherly Love I'd strongly recommend Male Spankee Wrestle-Off as well. Sebastian Hawley and Michael Darling wrestling over who gets to spank who. It's amazing.
In the meantime, as ever we'd love you to give a really warm welcome to Seani and Ron – when you've watched Seani wrestle Ron over his knee and deliver a humiliating bare bottom spanking, do come and say hello in the comments. And let me know, because I'm curious: what three-word phrase would instantly turn you on? “Bare bottom spanking”, perhaps? “Twelve cold strokes?” Or something I haven't even thought of yet...
David Weston is not exactly a model student. His school uniform is scruffy, he rolls his eyes when he's in trouble, and he's even cheeky to his strict headmistress – something I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to do.
But in the latest spanking scene, he's been given a choice. Take a two-hour detention, or bend over the headmistress' desk to be spanked with the slipper.
I love David's character in this. In his first video for Dreams of Spanking, he meekly accepted an over-the-knee spanking from his strict governess, but in this school spanking film it's clear he's not going to take the punishment with any degree of humility.
His stern headmistress, Pandora Blake, describes him as a 'delinquent', and as she whacks him with the slipper you can feel that her patience with this unruly pupil has totally run out - and you can even sense a sort of satisfaction at putting him in his place.
As David reluctantly lowers his underwear to be spanked hard with the slipper on his bare bottom, I think he might just be starting to regret his poor behaviour...
But does he regret his decision? Pandora tells him that if he had just gone to his detention, then she wouldn't have to waste her time administering corporal punishment to such an exasperating student.
David is obviously not keen on the idea of being slippered, protesting “You wouldn't, Miss!”
Oh she would. Pandora briskly explains that – at this particular school - corporal punishment hasn't yet gone out of fashion, probably precisely because of students like David who refuse to toe the line.
But despite his surprise that she's willing to bend him over the desk and lay on some stinging whacks with the slipper, I can't help but wonder if David's secretly congratulating himself on making the right choice. Detention, after all, takes a lot of time that could better be spent causing mischief. What would you opt for - two hours of tediously writing lines and being bored beyond words, or a short, sharp shock at the hands of the headmistress? I know which I would choose...
