I'm delighted to welcome our newest performer Andrew Shada to the site - male switch, spanking, bondage and pet play enthusiast.
In my everyday life I guess I'm a bit of a nerd: obsessed with science both fact and fiction, Doctor Who (as you can tell from the name!), history, real ale, war gaming, LARP, cosplay, yoga and comedy.
I also love to dabble and try new things, because you never know what you might like - and as Sir Thomas Beecham said “you should try everything once except morris dancing and incest”. Although actually I am rather partial to a little morris dancing.
I was put in touch with Andrew with a mutual friend who isn't in the kink scene herself, but knows what I do and supports my choices. She thought Andrew and I should talk, and when I saw his pictures on Fetlife and realised how cute he was, I quickly agreed!
I was particularly drawn to two photos, one showing Andrew looking deliciously toppy in historical military uniform, sitting in a leather armchair and holding a glass of port; and another of him in sub mode, doing the ironing wearing only his underwear. The latter was the inspiration for his first photoset.
My current policy of shooting photos first with a new performer originated on my first shoots with Jimmy Holloway and Sebastian Hawley, neither of whom had done any professional porn performance or fetish modelling before. Especially if someone is nervous on their first shoot, I find that photos can be a way to ease them in gently that is less nervewracking than video. While shooting photos we can talk and communicate more freely than while shooting video, and it gives them the chance to ask questions and give me feedback, while I can give them tips and, if necessary, coach them in body language. All of this is also excellent practice before shooting your first spanking video.
Andrew was nervous as hell, and had been compulsively smoking all morning while we were setting up to shoot. I decided to incorporate this into the first scene, with him as a houseboy who is spanked for taking an unauthorised smoke break from his domestic chores.
Andrew has been working all morning, cleaning Pandora's house, sweeping and mopping the floors. He ducks outside the back door for a well-earned smoke break. Unfortunately, his mistress catches him and drags him back indoors for a sound over the knee spanking. Once he has been well and truly punished, she orders him to strip naked, then gives him back the apron and tells him to finish his chores with his red glowing bottom on display.
Despite his nerves Andrew turned out to be a natural. There are so many images I love in this set. Such as the story hinted at in the above photo; or the embarrassment of having your trousers pulled down for a bare bottom spanking:
Andrew's submissive demeanour has an adorably forlorn, long-suffering quality. It's not pouty or bratty but sort of wistful and resigned.
This was his first spanking on camera, and I got the impression it was his first proper spanking in some time. He coloured up beautifully and I didn't need to go all-out to get a reaction.
And like me, Andrew has back dimples! For some reason I find this particularly cute on a boy.
Finally this scene provided another opportunity for me to indulge my well-documented apron fetish. The trope of a spankee being dressed only in an apron after punishment, with their spanked bare bottom on display, to add an extra dose of embarrassment to the completion of household chores, is a pretty common one in the M/F genre. M/F housework fetish bores me, but I love subverting it in male submissive or queer F/F scenes such as Cupcakes, Cheesecake! and Slave for a Day. And I couldn't resist the opportunity to revisit it one more time:
I think I've got it out of my system now. Mind you, I haven't shot a naked waiter scene yet - and Mr Will Savage would be a perfect candidate - so there might be some life in the old apron trope yet!
I recently blogged about our shoot with Lola Marie, the stunning new adult performer who debuted with Spanking Sarah earlier this year and is now merrily making her way across the UK spanking sites. It was our pleasure to shoot with her and to show you more of this lovely lady. Lola's first photoset is now online, where you can see her posing for for some portraits and glamour shots, and performing a seductive striptease. Lola has an infectious smile, a beautiful body, and a combination of coy, innocent mischief and womanly sexual power which is absolutely enthralling.
Introducing Lola Marie
Meet our newest cast member Lola Marie as she reveals her stunning body in this naughty striptease, pointing her toes in long rainbow socks, and bending over to show off her supremely spankable bottom!
I'm looking forward to publishing the spanking videos we shot with Lola, and the first one is currently scheduled to be released in mid-October. Watch this space!
It's a bright autumn morning and we're gearing up for another busy week. I'm sorry it's Monday again, and I can't do much about that, but what I can do is share some spanking scenes from around the web that lately caught my eye.
At Firm Hand Spanking we have the latest episode in my Military Training storyline, this time a bare-bottom strapping for undercover officer Amelia Rutherford. Keen as mustard to impress her superiors, Rutherford has to control mind over matter as a leather strap is expertly applied 115 times across her perky bare bottom.
Pandora enjoyed this scenario from Femme Fatale Films, "The Princess Bribe". Spoilt young wife Zoe wants money and she wants it now! Her husband's mental and physical ordeal only gets worse the more he objects, and the stakes seem to get higher and higher...
Spanking Sarah has just released the final part of their current nursing story and I have to say it is a real hot one! At last the truth emerges. As Dr Sarah Bright makes to cane Nurse Molly Malone for stealing pills from the dispensary, Nurse Aleesha Fox confesses to save her friend from a terrible punishment. Aleesha must bend over the bench to take a caning administered by Nurse Malone, who has previously suffered for Aleesha's crimes. Molly lifts the cane and begins one of the hardest canings she has ever administered on film. Nurse Fox is shown no mercy and asks for none as stroke after stroke adds to her pain, leaving her bottom bruised and marked.
And we round off with another medical scenario - this time Nurse Fonda paying a home visit on Anthony at Clare Spanks Men. Spanking is well known to boost the circulation and can pay a vital role in any course of medical treatment. Nurse Fonda knows just what to do with a naughty patient, especially one as cute as this!
Our recent scenes Caning Makes Me Giggle and Spanking Sensuality were shot one after the other, in that order. After her final film of the day (Caned Before Dinner) Mila had some lovely stripes, but was a little wiped out. I didn't want to pressure her to do another video straight away, so I volunteered my own bottom for a candid scene with Paul to give her a breather (entirely altruistic on my part - hated it), and afterwards she and I showed off our cane stripes in a sensual bedroom photoset.
I have recently bought a new cane I want to try, and I ask Paul for a taste of it. He is more than happy to oblige. I willingly bend over and lift my bottom for a hard, consensual beating that makes me giggle with pleasure.
I hope this fun little candid scene leaves you in no doubt that I really, truly love being caned - the harder the better.
The cane I brought back from Atlantic City in April, courtesy of UK company Correction Collection. It has rapidly become my new favourite, especially when I'm on the receiving end. There's just something about the way it feels that is pure pleasure. It's long, thick, flexible and seems to wrap itself lovingly into my flesh with enough bite to make me jump, and enough thud to make me purr.
Speaking of purring, aside from Paul's lovely topping the star of this scene is my cat Fatface, who occupies the foreground throughout with nose down and ears tilted back. She barely moves a muscle throughout the whole video, nor acknowledges the weird stuff the humans are getting up to behind her. Spanking Blog has written a hilarious analysis of my cat's reactions in this scene which I enjoyed hugely (spoiler: they are much less dramatic than mine).
The truth is that sometimes, caning really does make me giggle - especially the rapid fire, all-at-once style which I request right at the end. I really enjoy making these out of character, “just because” films from time to time. They represent my real life more than my fantasy life. I will probably always fantasise about non-consent scenarios, but the consensual stuff is a much more honest representation of how I play with my real play partners 99% of the time. I think it’s important to give that a showing in porn as well as fantasyland. I hope that knowing that the strokes, the scenario, the emotions, the relationships and the reactions are all real makes the resulting video hot in a different way from a staged, fictional narrative.
Whatever your fantasy, the truth is that spanking can be, and usually is, conducted in a fun, safe way between consenting adults who find it physically pleasurable. Caning can make me yelp or cry or scream, but sometimes it makes me purr - and sometimes it makes me giggle.
We took the photos in Spanking Sensuality immediately afterwards, while my cane marks were still fresh. Sadly, Mila's had faded, and after examining the state of each other's bottoms I decided that hers needed a top-up, and took her over my knee.
We go on to explore an unscripted and spontaneous exploration of sensual spanking for mutual pleasure. By this time Mila and I had been shooting together all day and had grown very comfortable with each other, as well as perhaps developing a bit of an attraction for each other. (Well, I can only speak for myself, but I had a good old crush). I have very fond memories of shooting this scene, and at the end of it I think all three of us were rather hot and flustered!
I'm a bit behind on blogging our latest scenes, so there might be a flurry of posts over the next few days while I get caught up. It's been a busy month, what with attending Molly Malone's amazing wedding; shooting with her, Zoe Montana and new male spankee Vincent Brennan; doing a tonne of 121 dom sessions; and enjoying some pleasantly filthy activities with my darling D, and, pleasingly, with Tom as well, who has taken time out of his busy summer to come and pay me a couple of booty calls lately. (A term which seems even more appropriate when it's just as much for spanking as it is for sex.)
I want to post previews from both this summer's shoots - things have just been so hectic I've not had time to finish processing the pictures. Ideally, I'd love to get caught up this week, as on Sunday Tom and I are going away for with Nimue Allen to shoot for Dreams of Spanking and Nimue's World for a whole seven days. It's an exciting milestone for this site, our biggest shoot yet, and we'll be adding four new performers to the Dreams of Spanking cast. I'm hugely excited and will share more details soon :)
When Baroness Blake hires a new housegirl, she is looking for obedience, grace, elegance, and a willingness to serve. Two applicants compete to meet her exacting standards: blonde Amelia, keen to show off her poise and perfect submission; and redhaired Caroline, a strong-willed and sarcastic New York City girl.
The Baroness doesn't only want attractive serving girls, but willing companions who can help keep her guests entertained. She tests their modesty, their mettle and their ability to give and receive corporal punishment with a smile. Do either of them have what it takes to join her household?
Photographer Hywel Phillips, Amelia's real-life husband, lent his skill to this shoot and captured a whopping 134 photographs, each and every one stunning in high resolution. Amelia and Caroline, a perfectly complementary pair, are shown off to best advantage, whether in elegant evening gowns or bare skin.
And as a hard-wired spanko, Hywel knows which moments in a punishment sequence are the important ones.
With a running time of over twenty minutes, the accompanying long-play video has already proved popular. If you like satin ballgowns, service, nude submissives, rivalry and watching me administer the tawse, you'll love this classy F/F punishment drama.
Two very different scenes for you this week - one grown-up and glamorous, the other exuberant and silly. First, we have a sensual boudoir photogallery of me completely nude, and secondly a playful puppy play scene with Michael Darling as sexy and submissive as you've ever seen him.
Step into my boudoir, and enjoy some sleepy, sensual photos of me lazing and stretching in my bedroom, fully nude and bathed in early morning sunlight.
These photos are the first set from a recent photo shoot with D, myself and new photographer Matt Christie. Matt is an amazing photographer who specialises in glamour, boudoir and art nude, and to my delight he was comfortable with shooting fetish as well.
It was a full day and we shot thousands of photos, including lots of spanking, glamour, bondage, dominance and submission and some ruder activities too. You know D and I by now, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. I'm looking forward to sharing the rest with you.
At the other end of the spectrum, our latest video stars Nimue Allen and Michael Darling as a kinky couple indulging in some puppy/mistress roleplay. (Or should that be puppy/mummy? I've always felt like the relationship with a pet is closer to "parent" than "master"...)
Puppy roleplay isn't really my kink, although I have enjoyed pet play before. However, it is a huge interest of Michael's and of Nimue's, and I'm always interested in shooting the scenes that genuinely get my performers excited. As soon as they started playing, I began to realise what I'd been missing. Puppy play is awesome. Just take a look at this trailer:
Michael wants some puppy time, and Nimue is happy to play with him. Whether the game is fetch, tug-of-war or sit up and beg, the rules are simple: good puppies get treats, and bad puppies get punished.
I wasn't sure how this scene would turn out, but the shoot was so much fun it had all three of us laughing out loud, and the resulting video is adorable.
Mikey is the cutest happy puppy!
Check out those big puppydog eyes as Mikey lifts his paw to be smacked...
And really badly behaved puppies have to drop to all fours to be punished more severely.
The appeal of puppy play is right there in the name - more than many fetishy activities it is about play in the most direct sense of the world; playfulness, fun, silliness and physicality. Here's what Michael has to say about this aspect of his kink:
Puppy play has been a favourite roleplay of mine for many years. I love how it incorporates elements of BDSM (training, discipline, collars, cages...) but at the same time there's romping and bounding about, scritching and belly rubs and playing around with other puppies. There's a fun and wonderfully tactile sensuality to it: when I'm in puppy headspace I feel incredibly centred in my body and want to run, sniff, lick and explore, and for doing so I'm rewarded with petting, head scritches and enthusiastic cries of "good boy!" It's a playful way of exploring master/pet power dynamics through the eyes of a fun-loving puppy dog.
We've had three domestic female spankee punishment scenes over the last couple of weeks, featuring some very sexy performers and classic spanking photography.
I'm extremely fond of Molly Malone and Nimue Allen's switch scene Bridezilla. Both ladies look stunning, including Molly in white lacy bridal lingerie, and the acting is just superb. But don't take my word for it, watch the trailer for yourself:
Molly is stressed out on her special day, and making life miserable for her long-suffering maid of honour. She even insists on punishing Nimue with a leather strap for imagined wrongdoings, which Nimue goes along with in hopes it will soothe Molly's temper and they'll be able to get on with the day.
Even after dishing out twenty-four hard strokes, however, Molly is still in a strop, and so Nimue turns the tables and gives the pouting bride some much needed discipline. A spanking and caning will leave Molly feeling calmer, and perhaps a sore bottom under her dress will help her behave a little more reasonably for the rest of the day!
Molly is getting married for real in August, and I hope she has a much happier day than her character in this film! I suspect she won't be anywhere near as stressed out, but she has mentioned that it might be a good idea to have Nimue along, just in case...
Last Wednesday we uploaded Bath Bubbles, a timeless spanking photoset starring the lusciously curvy Mila Kohl nude in the bathtub, covered in bubbles and being spanked by Paul Kennedy of Northern Spanking. I took the photos in this gallery, and was aiming to create some classic spanking images showing off Mila's beautiful body to best advantage. Admittedly, it isn't hard to make Mila look good:
Paul comes in while Mila is relaxing in a bubble bath, and the naughty girl can't resist the urge to blow foam at him, earning herself an on-the-spot spanking on her wet bottom.
Finally, our latest video is an adorable age play scene starring myself and Alex Reynolds (who is wearing the cutest pink bunny romper ever) getting spanked by Thomas Cameron's hand and wooden hairbrush. Here's the trailer:
Alex and Pandora are having a lovely time in their sofa fort. It's the best fort ever! They camp out inside it in their pyjamas and bunny rompers and play with all the stuffed animals. Alex shows Pandora the red marks from her latest spanking, and Pandora decides Alex deserves extra spanks for hitting her with her heavy lavender-filled bear.
But the giggly girls' fun and frolics are interrupted when Tom appears, and wants to know why the hell they've rearranged the lounge when he's expecting business guests for dinner this evening. Alex and Pandora are very sorry for forgetting, but they're about to be even sorrier. Tom hauls them out of the safety of the fort and bends them over one by one to be spanked. By the time his heavy hand and stingy wooden hairbrush have done their work, both girls are sobbing, begging and sorry. Slowly Alex and Pandora learn that no matter how cute they are, it won't save them from spankings.
This is an adorable domestic discipline video for fans of age play, cuteness and painful wooden hairbrush punishments. Keep watching to the end for the super-cute alternate ending!
Editing this video made me squee a lot, but it was also kind of embarrassing because oh my god, I did not take that hairbrush with anything approaching grace or dignity. Alex, who is somewhat tougher than me, especially when it comes to wood, hollers a lot but basically stays still and submits to her spanking. I do not. I squirm and yell and move out of position and am basically a total wuss.
I hope that my total lack of fortitude is, at least, hot to those of you who like to know a spanking really hurt (and my word, this one REALLY did), but having watched my sorry performance I feel motivated to film another wooden hairbrush spanking, and aim to take it more submissively. I'm thinking an over the knee position, with my bottom high in the air over Tom's lap, possibly one of his thighs trapping mine in place. A really immersive scene with lots of anticipation to give me a chance to psych myself up for it properly; either a romantic dominance/submission scene or a roleplay in which my character has done something really bad, and genuinely deserves it.
Wooden hairbrushes are a huge part of my kink, and I fantasise about them all the time, quite possibly because they are so evil and difficult to take in reality. Being my own worst sadist, this is more than enough reason for me write myself lots of wooden hairbrush spankings. If you have any particular requests let me know, because I am determined to do this again, and hopefully take it a little better next time.
Hello! Thomas Cameron here to talk about our most recent update, Sleepover. I had a great deal of fun helping film this scene, not least because the shoot gave me the opportunity to meet the awesome Alex for the first time. I'd heard many tales from the days she shared a room with Pandora in Texas, and had been looking forward to meeting one of the more interesting bloggers out there.
I arrived somewhat after Alex, and the girls gleefully informed me that their real-life behaviour on the first night of her stay would provide the plot for the first scene we'd be shooting. Apparently, they'd stayed up far too late, and there had been a great deal of giggling and inappropriate behaviour by soft-toys. Scenes played with humour are always a great deal of fun to do, and the resulting film is both sexy and charming.
Alex and Pandora have been bad girls, staying up too late talking and laughing loudly under the covers. Poor Tom was kept awake half the night, even though he came in and told them twice to be quiet. So the next morning, before breakfast, he orders both girls to lower their jeans and come over his knee for a long, thorough spanking on their upturned bottoms and even the sensitive backs of their thighs. Pandora begs him not to spank Alex - she's her guest! - but Tom is adamant that they had fair warning to be quiet, and both of them are old enough to know better.
Once they have been soundly spanked, the girls must lie down side by side on the bed, and lower their knickers for a whopping total of 80 strokes of the long leather strap.
The ladies had a lot of fun playing with their naughty otter (I am told I missed my cue by a couple of minutes but they seeemed to be having so much fun...) After threats of a spanking in the morning fail to keep the girls quiet, Uncle Thomas tells them they'll be dealt with in the morning. They invent several creative attempts to avoid their spankings, ranging from blaming it all on the soft toys to wearing terribly cute matching panties in the hope that it would disarm their disciplinarian. Alas, this did not work.
Alex is a great deal of fun to spank, and when I fetched out the promised strap the girls made a dealightful picture holding hands on the bed in solidarity. I really enjoyed watching through the finished film and think many of you will as well!
I'll be back later this week to take a look around Nimue's World.
Lady in Waiting is our first scene with the lovely Mila Kohl. It's not about a real lady-in-waiting, although that would make a fab historical scenario one of these days. Instead it's a domestic dominance and submission storyline which provides the opportunity for these delightful art nude photos of Mila by Paul Kennedy.
Mila has been given instructions by her dominant: to undress, and wait for her to arrive. She obeys nervously, wondering what awaits her, trying to arrange herself in a posture that will be found pleasing. Eventually Pandora comes home to find Mila fully nude, waiting submissively on her knees.
Pandora takes Mila over her knee and rewards her obedience with a firm but caring hand spanking.
Mila is beautiful in this gallery, a natural in front of the camera, with a charmingly shy submissive demeanour. She is also a highly intelligent, creative lady and a pleasure to work with, and this first scene was a lovely ice-breaker to help us get to know each other.
The dynamic of nude submissive, clothed dominant is one that is well explored in heterosexual pairings. CFNM (clothed female, nude male) is a genre of its own - one I didn't realise I liked until I discovered I'd unwittingly made spanking porn that counted.
CMNF also seems to be an acronym people use (clothed male, nude female), and barely a day goes by without images like this turning up on Tumblr:
The pattern is always the same: the submissive nude, and the dominant in formal clothing, either a smart suit or evening wear. The suit/nude dichotomy works regardless of gender. It's about contrasting the trappings of status, power and protection with vulnerability.
Clothed female has more versatility than clothed male however, as a ballgown fits the pattern just as well as a business suit.
This is a fascinating genre when it comes to thinking about gender presentation and power dynamics. The business suit/power dressing thing codes dominance as masculine; but elegant evening wear can also represent power as hyper-feminine. Either way, the tropes of masculinity and femininity tend to be heightened in these images; whether heteronormatively associating dominant with butch and submissive with femme, or queering those expectations.
I'm looking forward to playing with this theme further, and exploring the question of how presentation and dress relate to gender, power and consensual power exchange. I have a couple shoot coming up next month with D which will include some CMNF, and I'm not sure if we'll play it straight yet or include some sort of twist. I'd also love to shoot some clothed male, nude male at some point. As always, I'm open to ideas about ways we can create images of dominance and submission that are hot, interesting and innovative.
As someone who likes looking at naked men, it sometimes feels as if the world of rope bondage photography thinks that only women ever get tied up. I've enjoyed watching men submit to bondage in real life, and I've always wanted to see more of it in porn. For a while now I've been particularly fascinated by the idea of seeing a physically strong man in artistic rope bondage; tight rope curving around bulging muscles. The idea of strength subdued and power restrained.
With his athletic physique and experience as a nude model, our newest switch performer Will Savage provided the perfect opportunity to test my ideas.
Introducing new switch performer Will Savage, freshly oiled and showing off his muscular physique. Strength and power are slowly tamed as he kneels and submits to tightly tied hemp rope.
Many thanks to rigger Ariel Anderssen (AKA Amelia Jane Rutherford) and photographer Hywel Phillips for helping me bring this vision to life. I love the results, and producing this male bondage photo set has only whetted my appetite for more.
It seems I'm not alone, either.
Musclebound went up on Friday. On Saturday, I uploaded a couple of preview images to Fetlife. By Sunday night, one image had climbed to the top of the "Kinky & Popular" feed, with over 1000 "loves". The other followed not far behind.
This feed is not just based on how many likes or comment a picture has, but has an algorithm that seems to take into account recent activity, maintaining a balance of media types, and quite possibly some human moderation as well. The tendency of the feed to include a majority of white, skinny, naked women has been well documented. Men are rare; male submissives are practically invisible. (Likewise, the Fetlife homepage always includes a photograph, usually of rope bondage, always, always of a female, white, skinny bottom.)
As I write this, our photo of Will Savage bound in rope has 3,734 "loves" and 390 comments, all positive, both numbers climbing by the minute. A lot of people have commented on how rare it is to see a male submissive featured in K&P, and how much they appreciated it. Here's a tiny sample:
Take one look at this thread and tell me again that "men just aren't that nice to look at naked" or "women just aren't that visual".
The kinky world, or at least the part of it that spends time on Fetlife, is crying out for more beautiful imagery eroticising and celebrating male submission. I am absolutely bowled over by the scale of the response this photo has received. It's renewed my determination to continue the work I'm doing to produce imagery that depicts male submission, as well as female, as positive, sexy and beautiful.
If you like Musclebound, you may enjoy a couple of other sites I've found recently which provide sexy photos of men in bondage.
FM Concepts is a digital download site which contains fetish photos and videos starring both male and female subs. Their Men in Bondage section contains a large number of titles including, interestingly, many scenes in which men and women are tied up together, as well as F/M scenarios. Seems I'm not the only one who thinks that boys and girls getting into trouble together is hot.
The other link I stumbled across this week is a tumblr site called Dudes in Distress which publishes original male bondage photography by two kinky ladies. The boys are cute, the photography and the bondage are beautiful, and the predicaments are creative.
Dreams of Spanking is first and foremost a spanking site, so aside from introductory model photosets like this one of Will, bondage is mostly something I will only include as part of a spanking scene. But there is clearly a need for more beautiful imagery of men in bondage, as well as more D/S erotica focussed on the male submissive. I already have all sorts of ideas about potential spin-off projects.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Musclebound; and we have two scenes featuring all three of Will Savage, bondage and spanking still to come.
I'll leave you with a poem about the submission of a strong, powerful man by the excellent Labcoats and Lingerie, which I think is beautiful.
Give me the lion
What use have I for worms?
I am no gardener.
Where I could crush with the toe of my boot,
I’m reluctant to step.
For they are hard to see, down there,
competing to wriggle the lowest.
From the height of a human it’s hard to tell one from another.
So I wait,
and watch–kindly–so as not to interrupt
as they wriggle away in search of a thing that I’m not.
I do not need a worm.
Give me the lion.
Give me the lion with the orange mane,
the teeth, the sweeping tail,
quiet paws, and the unmistakable
curve of his spine.
No housecat he, declawed and docile,
content with long-dead food.
He tears his meat with me,
‘Til I challenge him:
tossing scraps on the ground and watching his hackles rise.
We test one another.
If I do not stand over him–if I turn, and assume his obedience–
he may tear me to pieces
(and I will deserve it).
You must. Respect. The beast.
Therefore he tests
the still and wordless strength
in my gaze, and the tension I keep on the chain in my hand;
in return I test his will, and smile
when he finally lowers his head to obey me
He wears my collar, but it doesn’t make him tame.
It just makes him mine.
Astride his ferocity I am ferocious:
marking his rippling hide,
or twisting a hand through the curls of his mane to hold him.
When I mount him, and ride,
I command the world.
So keep your worms, and give me the lion.
Give me the lion, a chair and whip,
and we shall roar.
