There are lots of videos out there with camera angles that depict the spanker's point of view; just as there are lots of videos that portray the top's fantasy, and images of spankees representing the dominant gaze. Our latest film captures the intimacy of an over-the-knee spanking through shots that portray the spankee's point of view.¹
When Alex admits to feeling bad about flouting her D/S rules during her time in the UK, Tom suggests a spanking might help her feel better. She lies over his knee on the edge of the bed, feeling his strong thighs support her hips. Looking back over her shoulder, she meets his gaze as his hand rises and falls... and in the mirror, she can see her bottom bouncing under the smacks.
Tom used to have a cupboard with glass doors in his bedroom, and the glimpses I caught of my own bottom being spanked, reflected in the glass, were very exciting. During a punishment I often find it erotic to look back at my spanker and watch them preparing to deliver a stroke.
I started to wonder what a spanking video would look like shot from the spankee's perspective, with camera angles representing their point of view. Of course, ten minutes of a square of carpet would be boring. But what about an over-the-shoulder shot as the top tells them what's about to happen? Or, over the knee, looking back over their shoulder, meeting their top's gaze, seeing the hand rise and fall? What about glimpsing their own reflection in a mirror, just as I had?
This film is an experiment in, quite literally, the spankee's gaze. I think the subtle glimpses and reflections are quite exciting, and more suggestive and provocative than a direct view. In the end, however, we wondered if it would be a waste of what ended up be a very hard, thorough spanking not to show you any shots of Alex's bottom at all, so we compromised by introducing some more traditional camera angles towards the end of the spanking.
My hope is that by putting the viewer into Alex's shoes, this video captures the intimacy of an over-the-knee spanking, and will resonate with fellow spankees. Perhaps it will also prove of interest to spankers curious about seeing a spanking from the bottom's perspective. Does it work for you? Let us know what you think.
1. The femdom genre has some point-of-view videos that show a female top addressing the presumed male submissive viewer via the camera - Dana Kane has some excellent examples - but as far as I know, this has never been done with a male top. Perhaps the innovative thing about this film is not that it portrays a spankee's gaze, but a female one.
