Whee, I'm pleased that "more dialogue" is seen as a good thing! I think it's essential in setting a believable scene personally but there's always the worry that it's not sufficiently entertaining and people will find it too slow.
Thanks for the other comments - I did wish we could have done this scene unmarked but that's always the way of spanking shoots. Most sites get round it with extensive warmup to minimise marking but honestly, extensive hand spanking warmups before thrashings don't feature in my fantasies at all, ever. I'd rather have a serious whipping with some marks than tone everything down. But yes, it is a bit distracting, isn't it. Sorry - I'll keep trying to work on a way round that one!
