The second day of last week's shoot was all about Michael Darling. Previously known as Mike Stryker, this blue-eyed, neatly bearded young man has gained a lot of fans after his shoot with Dana Kane, and I couldn't wait to get him back. This time, I felt that my topping skills had come far enough to work with him myself, and he didn't seem to mind the idea. Since we're both switches, I decided to start the day with a couple of scenes which let his top side shine:
Doesn't he look good wielding that hairbrush?
This switch scene, in which we play two young sweethearts who agree to pledge their troth in the manner of college fraternities - with ten hard swats of the wooden paddle - will be out this weekend. Look out for it!
But of course, you've all seen my bottom before - and while I had Michael for the day I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to show off his. It is rather fantastic, as anyone who's seen this photo will agree.
Michael's penchant for age play was the inspiration behind that sizzling shaved-and-spanked scene with Dana Kane, and since then not only has it become one of our most popular videos, but it's inspired age play scenes with Sebastian and Ten as well. I love giving the performers I work with input into the scenes we do, as it's when you're playing a scene that everyone is genuinely into that the real magic happens.
I knew that Michael was also very interested in pet and puppy play. It's something I've dabbled with myself, with the good folks of SM Circus. But I've never explored it in an F/M context before. Well, there's always a first time. And with fellow puppy player and accomplished domme Nimue Allen on set, how could I resist?
I wouldn't describe puppy play as my kink exactly, but I can definitely see the appeal ... and I defy anyone to not find those photos adorable.
And of course, we couldn't resist the opportunity to shoot some classic domestic F/M. Well, almost. I try to inject a bit more affection and intimacy into my F/M scenes than you'll see in traditional femdom. And I do like to show you Mr Darling's lovely face, as well as his lovely bottom:
We had a little time left at the end of the day, so before we settled in to a convivial evening of wine and gossip, we used the time to take some extra photos of Michael showing off his beautifully welted bottom in a pink floral pinny.
There's something about these images, for me, that sums up the whole idea behind this website. I just love the way his muscles look in the window reflection in that first photo. Who says nubile young men can't be sexy 50s housewives too? Ladies, I hope you'll agree.
