The warmup is a vitally important part of the spanking process. When your skin is properly warmed up, blood rushes to the area in question and the main event hurts a little less - meaning you can go for longer and take more of a thrashing. A good warmup also helps both the spanker and the spankee figure out where they’re at that day and calibrate accordingly, especially if they’ve not played together much or it’s been a while.
In this week’s film, though, Blake and Sarah forgo the warming-up process entirely in favour of a particularly harsh cold paddling for one full, unrelenting minute. It’s an extremely hot scene, partly because skipping the warmup is usually a bad idea; this is a punishment, after all, and Sarah isn’t doing anything to make it any easier.
The lack of a good warmup isn’t the only thing adding a little extra frisson to this spanking, though. The timer itself gives a very different feel than the more usual set number of strokes: till that alarm goes off Sarah won’t be slowing down or letting up, and Blake won’t have a chance to breathe between impacts and brace for the next one. It’s sixty full seconds in the heart of the storm, taking it over and over again.
The paddling was just as intense for Blake as a performer - there was no off-screen warmup before it was filmed, and those timed minutes were very real. It worked out because it was a well-negotiated scene, and because Blake and Sarah have been working together for a long time; there’s enough trust and understanding there for them to push the boundaries a little.
There’s a lot of love about this scene, and we’re looking forward to hearing from you all about it - and we’re also pretty sure Blake’s learned their lesson about staying up too late playing on their laptop!
There’s always been a rather Sapphic edge to the dynamic between a lady of noble birth and her slightly less privileged companions. This is particularly true in Victorian and early 20th century settings, where two unattached women might find themselves alone together for extended periods of time and bound by convention not to form real bonds with either the servants or the menfolk. In a world where emotive expression is not encouraged and intimacy is confined to closed doors and dark corners, human beings look for connection. Plus, you know...that power dynamic is hot as hell.
Which is precisely the conclusion reached by Miss Bower, the titular Lady’s Companion played by Rosie in this week’s release.
She mostly took the job out of necessity, we suspect; she needed to find a husband, which would be easier in the company of Lady Pandora than from her own reduced circumstances, and she needed to support herself in the meantime, which the house and wage on offer would enable her to do. And if her new mistress’s idea of discipline seems a little draconian...well, it’s a small price to pay.
Once she’s been there a while, though, she makes a startling discovery. There’s much more to learn from this rich widow than simply etiquette and connections - Coleridge and his “woman wailing for her demon-lover” give Miss Bower quite a start - and as for the discipline, well, it turns out there’s more to like about that than she could ever have imagined.
There’s a fun moment in the backstage footage where Rosie remarks that her character is clearly never going to marry - the two of them will be quite happy together for a long time yet, she suspects. I can’t say I can blame her.
The concept of a tyrannical dominant who runs a stable of auctioned submissives is a staple of the BDSM genre. In many of its iterations it follows the same few tropes: the participants are mostly straight, with perhaps the occasional bit of ‘play bisexuality’ thrown in as part of getting people out of their comfort zones; they’re overwhelmingly cis, with the only gender-non-conforming elements coming from cis men who enjoy the French maid role as submissives; most of the characters involved are white, especially the dominants. There’s also often an element of reluctance, with some of the submissive characters feeling in over their heads or in some way coerced.
Many of these tropes have their place. We’re huge fans of people being able to play out their fantasies in consensual, negotiated ways, and we certainly don’t shy away from themes of coercion and reluctance in our fictions here. Still, though, we like to do things a little differently when we can.
Goddess Lana’s New Slave is our latest addition to this canon, and it turns several of the usual patterns on their heads. Blake’s butch, submissive character is clearly eager to be where they are, and has very obviously enjoyed their rule-breaking spanking - there’s a delicious frisson of naughtiness to them as their reddened bottom is revealed, and they’re clearly eager to find out what their new Mistress’s reaction will be. Lana is gorgeously imperious and utterly femme, parading her latest acquisition aroud the room and pondering on all the fun she plans to have with them.
Lana Moon’s films are always fun to watch, and this is no exception - whether you’d rather be helping her keep her favourite steeds in line or joining them in their grabbable leather harnesses, you’ll enjoy this sojourn in the Mistress’s house.
It’s very hard to get a spanking completely even. If your implement has any kind of flexibility to it - which many do, including most lighter canes - it’s going to connect differently on different parts of the skin, emphasised by the fact that bottoms have beautiful curves and aren’t a flat surface. Floggers and straps are often thuddier toward the base and stingier at the tip, which gives a gorgeous mix of sensations and can make the experience all the more powerful.
Sometimes, though, that’s not quite what you’re looking for. Even after the very best spankings you can be left with a lopsided feeling - from the way your implement of choice wraps around, from the precise angle your top was striking from, from the side they’re standing on while they spank you. You can switch sides, of course, which leaves your glow a little more even, but it’s never exactly the same.
The ultimate solution to this “problem” (and it’s a great problem to have!) is to get yourself two tops and two toys, one on each side, taking it in turns to beat you as evenly as possible. The result is a gorgeous rain of sensation, and - if this week’s release is anything to go by - a lot of good giggling fun.
Spread for the Strap was filmed at the end of a day-long shoot, and it’s one of our more beautifully candid films. Nobody is following a script or playing a part, and you can tell how much the performers enjoyed the chance to wind down together once the more intense parts of the day were over. By the end, Pandora’s bottom is glowing a bright, beautiful red - and the whole cast are left smiling and laughing after a hard day’s work.
One of my jobs here at Dreams of Spanking is to write the descriptions for each new release before they go out on the site. I was excited to get to this one - partly because I have a huge thing for Kelley May (who doesn’t?), but also because when Blake sent me the film they described it as “one of my hottest filming experiences ever”. They’ve been in this business a long time; they’ve had a lot of very hot filming experiences. I was looking forward to seeing what made this one special.
Believe me when I say that it isn’t hard to figure out. One of my biggest turn-ons is a domme who talks to me; someone who can use their tone and their language to build a headspace up around us, pull me down into a bubble of our own creation. Kelley is particularly good at it, and that’s exactly what she does in this scene.
Blake starts out all macho and tough-guy, talking back and trying to ignore their girlfriend’s attempts to start a conversation. Kelley takes them apart gradually, every word and every decision a new little mindgame to get Blake into the headspace they’re really craving. By the end Blake is utterly undone, with a bright red backside, subby and relaxed in their girlfriend’s lap.
We’ve released some fantastic content recently (we really are on a roll, aren’t we?) but this film in particular is well worth a watch - especially for anyone who, like me, would love to have a domme like Kelley pull them into that deliciously broken-down headspace.
A small slice of history for you this week: Ms. Howard’s Little Girl was the first fan-requested, multi-performer custom film Pandora ever shot, and it was originally made way back in 2009. At the time it went unreleased, but if you’re a longstanding member you will have seen some of this footage before.
2013’s My Inner Little Girl is one of our best films. It’s a lot of fun to watch, it’s a gorgeous representation of what we’re trying to do here and it’s one Pandora had a great time making. Part of what makes it work so well is the fantasy sections, which are full separate little scenes in which this otherwise solo film acquires a co-star. Those daydreams came from this shoot: you’ll spot some of them in this week’s release, and the others originated in a film called Tammy’s Shame that we’ll be releasing in a few weeks time.
There are reasons we chose not to publicly release all this footage the first time around. The plot is a little hokey, and it has such a wealth of detail and description that our performers weren’t able to get entirely off-book. But as a team we’re better at editing and producing films now: this doesn’t look like footage we shot last week, but it has come together into something we think is well worth getting out there at last.
We all love My Inner Little Girl, we all love Zoe Montana and we all love stumbling across some unreleased spanking content - so we’re thrilled to finally bring you Ms. Howard’s Little Girl, and we think you’ll enjoy this trip down memory lane as much as we have.
Part of our mission here is to make porn that has a little narrative integrity: we love complex plots, coherent storylines and off-book acting. We find this helps us to build a world in which the characters feel real and like we can care about them, which in turn makes our scenes more powerful emotive experiences for performer and viewer both.
But even with all that said...sometimes we just need to get fucked.
Which isn’t to say that this week’s conclusion to our two-part film starring Tai Crimson and Pandora Blake doesn’t have a story behind it. It’s been a long time in the making (this footage has been unreleased for a good few years now!) and the reception to Part 1 was fantastic, with many of our viewers loving how filthy and explicit Tai and Pandora are with each other. If that was your favourite thing about Spank My Hole, you’re in for a treat: Fuck My Hole is even dirtier, with Tai’s gorgeous bottom high in the air as she wriggles and squirms in delight while Pandora brings her to a stunning, ecstatic crescendo.
“I don’t think you could ever be fucked enough”, Pandora says toward the end of the scene, before bearing down bodily on Tai to let her feel as stuffed full as possible. And, frankly, we all agree.
After two years of communicating in a more online way than ever before, many of us have seen sides of other people’s lives that we never thought we would. We’ve met our colleagues' cats, seen our therapists' kitchens and had late-night conversations in our friends' bedrooms - and learned all kinds of things about them as a result.
My Lesbian Goth Girlfriend joins a whole new genre of ‘video chat fiction’ inspired by the ways we’ve communicated with each other throughout the pandemic. Emma’s playing the part of an inexperienced spankee in a new relationship, blushing and giggling over Zoom as she fills her best friend in on all the salacious details. Of course, when Pandora overhears their chat she’s struck by a singularly revealing notion - and we get to peep in through the webcam while she carries it out.
The end result is a very red bottom and a friendship taken to a whole new level by a quick catchup video call. And as an added bonus, both of our performers really do look great in those outfits - and Emma’s resoundingly through hairbrush spanking must have been sore for hours after the shoot was over!
Proof of Innocence is something of a hidden gem; it was shot over a decade ago, and then released by its visiting performers on their own blog. We’ve always wanted to share it with the Dreams of Spanking audience, though, so we’ve pulled it out and polished it up - and, as an added treat, released it entirely for free to the world at large. Who doesn’t love free spanking porn?
This was a particularly special film to shoot: it was made entirely by two real-life D/s couples, both of whom brought their electric chemistry and authentic dynamics with them to the set. It was the first time Kaelah had done anything like it on camera, and the first time she’d played with anyone other than Ludwig. She wrote a beautiful post about it on her own blog, and Pandora has written about it too; both posts are well worth reading, and give beautiful insight to the context of the film itself.
The film also represents the beginning of a beautiful journey for Kaelah and Ludwig, who went on to shoot for Dreams of Spanking several more times. If we’ve whetted your appetite and you’d like to see more, you’ll find their other scenes right here - each one featuring inspired plot, in-depth characterisation and a blistering spanking.
Pandora Blake is the name that I've been using for my porn work since I first began in 2006, starting with my shoots on English Spankers and Girls Boarding School. In that time I've matured. I've had a child, come out as non-binary, become a business owner and activist. I've undergone immense personal growth and hope to continue to do so. I've retained the name because it's very recognizable for people who are fans of my early work, but I don't feel that it expresses my full self.
Pandora, as a very feminine name, feels like a persona that I put on for work when I'm playing a feminine character. When I'm doing activism work, I tend to go by Blake as a gender neutral version of my name which feels more comfortable for me and more expressive of my non-binary self. So on Dreams of Spanking, when I'm performing as a woman, which I'm still very happy to do, I will be referred to as Pandora and she/her. But when I'm playing a male role or doing a scene where I'm my own non-binary self, I will be referred to as Blake and they/them.
I know that for many people sexual desire is highly gendered. Our fantasies are often informed by the cultural categories we grow up with, and a lot of us are attracted to very masculine, or very feminine, archetypes. I get that. And so I don't mind playing those masculine or feminine roles in adult roleplay; in fact I actively enjoy it. It's an outlet for two facets of my complex gender identity.
I am Pandora. I am also Blake. I am Pandora / Blake.
