Looking forward

Happy new year! I've got a lot to look forward to in 2013. I feel like I'm starting the year in a really strong place. Living on my own suits me very well indeed, and I'm grateful for my wonderful friends and lovers, and to be able to make a living doing work I love.

They say that you should do porn as long as it makes you happy, and I have to admit I wondered whether going full time as a producer rather than shooting for other people as an occasional treat would take the sparkle out of making spanking videos. But the opposite has proved true: making my own films and bringing my fantasies to life the way I imagined them has fuelled my passion for spanking erotica. The more I do spanking, the wider my range of interests, and it was pretty wide to start with!

I'm really looking forward to 2013. By the end of 2012 I had reached my initial membership target for my first year of business, which is a great feeling and leaves me feeling really optimistic about the future. I've got some exciting plans for this year, and various projects in the pipeline which I'm looking forward to sharing with you all. Look out for shoots with Caroline Grey, Amelia Jane Rutherford, Alex Reynolds and some brand new faces who have never done spanking porn before, some ambitious historical productions, "Choose your own adventure" style spanking videos, and more! I'm also working on a number of side projects loosely affiliated with Dreams of Spanking, including a feature film starring Molly Malone and Michael Darling, and a new website dedicated to celebrating the male spankee.

Unfortunately I've not felt at my best the last few days. D and I both came back from visiting family with colds which have now lasted nearly a week. Mine got significantly worse over the new year, and I now have laryngitis to add to the sinus congestion, sniffles, headaches and hacking cough. Woe is me! Of course we made it worse by stubbornly staying out late on New Year's Eve despite our struggling immune systems.

I managed to publish a photoset before New Year's Eve, which I really enjoyed editing and will write more about in my next post, but unfortunately the need to regularly lie down until the world stopped spinning slowed down my workflow, and I didn't manage to get the video I had planned ready in time. Video editing requires a lot of concentration and when your head is full of fog it's not always possible to plough through. The last couple of days I've felt worse and worse, and I decided I'd better get some real rest or else it'd drag on forever. So our next film, a domestic service movie starring Nimue Allen and Sebastian Hawley, is very nearly ready, but it still needs some finishing touches and a preview clip before I can upload. Meanwhile here's a glimpse of what you can look forward to:

This video will be available in the next couple of days, and I'm sorry for the delay. In the meantime I've given everyone whose membership was due to expire on or after December 30th 2012 a 5 day membership extension so that you'll have access to the forthcoming film. I'll email those concerned individually to let them know.

Being a one woman show behind the scenes is ace in some ways, as it gives me an amazing amount of control over my creative vision, but it also does mean I'm vulnerable to this sort of bad timing. One of my aims in 2013 is to get 2-3 weeks ahead with my editing so my update schedule will be more secure. I managed to get 1 week ahead a few times in 2012 but each time a project or event came up which took me away from Dreams of Spanking. Those other commitments won't go away, so getting properly on top of my editing will mean working hard, but that's not so bad when you're doing work you love.

I have great plans for this year, and after the success of the last one I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in. As soon as I'm feeling well again, that is!

Year One

I'd like to be the first to offer my Congratulations for a job well done. I really do think you have the most interesting spanking site there is. Lots of varity (not all to my taste but I don't expect that) good sound spankings without being Lupus brutal, and a whole world of scenes and ideas.

I have an idea for a scene, you had a cold and instead of taking care of yourself went out and partied and got really sick and a replacement had to be obtained. . (What made me think of that.) When the students at the school where you are a teacher are irresponsible they get to bend over for the paddle. If I was the headmaster I would suggest you do the same. (I'm really trying hard to get you bent over touching toes and paddled on skirt or panties. I won't complain if it's bare. But I will if there is progression, if it starts on the skirt it ends on the skirt.)

And pleases do get Carolyn Grey back, I was afraid that she had decided to become a nun or something. And get her naked so I can die happy.

Thanks for a great year and I'm lookng forward to the next one.

Thanks Bacchus for this lovely comment, and for all your support and feedback this year. I really like your scene idea - I'll add it to the list for our next shoot!

I've already filmed several versions of a scenes in which I'm paddled (and other things) over different tight skirts. The different versions are going to be released as a single update. You should like it.

Not sure if nudity is within Caroline's limits or not - I can only ask!

Hi Pandora. Happy New Year to all of you. Congratulations on your site doing so well and all. Glad that you are doing what makes you happy, so should all.
I never got to send you my scene ideas as we talked about in another comment. I still think about doing it and maybe I'll get it domne soon. I haven't had much time for stuff like that lately since I had a baby son three and a half months ago, so as you can imagine I have had had things to do :-) Yep, 2012 - Best Year ever for my part also!

Oh my goodness, so many congratulations on the birth of your son! How wonderful for you. I'm so touched that you took the time to visit and say hi. It's been lovely chatting to you on the site this year and I hope we'll see you again this year, when you have a bit more time that is. All the best for 2013 - I have no doubt it'll be a special, memorable year for you :)
