Merry May from all of us at Dreams of Spanking! The first day of May is traditionally dedicated to worker's rights, political dissent and exuberant celebrations. It's also the day when modern pagans celebrate Beltane, the festival of vitality, sensuality and creativity. People light fires, dance, and share food and drink, enjoying the warmer weather as the earth flowers with new life. This is the time when lovers jump over fires and slip into the woods together.
Our newest photogallery is our personal celebration of May Day; a ceremonial outdoor birching starring Alex Reynolds and Thomas Cameron as a couple who choose to consummate their Beltane rite with spanking.
After their courteous, formal meeting, the lovers remove their masks to drink from the ritual cup. The May Queen raises her skirts and places her hands on the trunk of the tree to receive the birch.
This is a sacred rite, in which man and woman embody the polarised forces of God and Goddess, but it's also the playful union of human partners, exploring their passions in consensual celebration of the gifts of nature.
I've always been fascinated by the idea of sacred kink. At a personal level, spanking and BDSM can lead to a state of personal exaltation that can feel very spiritual, if you're that way inclined. And the idea of a spankee becoming the object of a ritual, offering up their body to the needs of a ceremony in the name of a higher power, is a form of noble objectification that I find very hot.
This photoset explores the more personal end of that spectrum. Alex Reynolds and Thomas Cameron looked magnificent in their Mayday costumes, and both played their roles with potency and grace. It's always a pleasure to work with likeminded people who share my enthusiasm for my more unusual scene ideas, and bring my visions to life so handsomely. Thankyou, both!
The site is updated weekly with full-length spanking films, mostly between 5-20 minutes long but occasionally longer, and every so often Dana posts additional bonus videos. Dana Kane Spanks already contains a whopping 142 spanking scenes, the biggest archive of any new site I've ever seen.
In the videos Dana primarily spanks her male partner, known on the site only as "My Bottom's Bottom", and the adorable Spanked Angel, another regular playmate of Dana's. One other male spankee is known as "The Very Bad Boy".
Neither My Bottom's Bottom nor the Very Bad Boy show their faces in the videos, and Dana has not yet worked with any professional male spankees. After all, as I've learned, they can be quite hard to find, as in most places the market does not yet exist. I'm looking forward to seeing her expand her range of male victims as the site develops, and I'm sure that if she and Michael Darling were ever in the same town again she would set up a shoot with him in an instant!
Dana Kane Spanks does feature a number of female models from her hometown of Las Vegas as well as several professional female spankees including Cheyenne Jewel, Christie Cutie, Sarah Gregory and Kelley May (as far as I know, Kelley's first ever appearance on a spanking site other than her own clips store).
And, most recently, me! I filmed with Angel and Dana during my recent visit to Atlantic City, NJ.
Here's the scene description:
Pandora and Angel are lying in the hotel suite, talking about the party. They're being awfully bawdy, talking about all the hot guys and girls, and I can't tolerate their bad language for long. I lecture the girls on ladylike behavior, but they both argue back, saying that there's nothing wrong with their language or behavior, and that I am being unreasonable. After a bit of their backtalk, I've heard enough - I pull out two bars of soap and tell Pandora and Angel that they'll be sorry for their dirty language. Angel stands in the corner watching as I tell Pandora to open her mouth wide for the soap, then spin her around and spank her hard with hand and strap while she wriggles on the bed on hands and knees. I then bring Angel over and, over her protestations, shove the soap into her waiting mouth...and then watch her mouth pucker in disgust. Angel is placed into hands and knees position right beside Pandora, and they're both thoroughly spanked and strapped with soap bars firmly in their dirty little mouths. Then...there's a twist...
This was a really fun scene to shoot - it was lovely working with Dana again, and Angel is such a sweetheart. Dana also set up a hilarious behind the scenes prank which will be revealed in due course, but suffice it to say it was enormously entertaining for Dana and I, and rather less funny for poor Angel!
Dana Kane is one of the most capable disciplinarians on the planet and a very impressive woman, smart, funny and the embodiment of elegance and class. If you meet her you quickly discover that she is also warm, welcoming and open-hearted. I hope we can collaborate on many future occasions, and I wish her all the best with her new site Dana Kane Spanks.
Now that I'm recovered from my jet-lag after flying to Atlantic City for the amazing spanking party Boardwalk Badness Weekend (about which more on my personal blog, if you're interested), it's back to the editing suite and the rewarding business of creating spanking porn.
Our latest spanking video Essay Help is a positive, edifying F/F discipline film with that feel-good factor.
I think Nimue looks particularly lovely in this.
Nimue is struggling with her coursework and with low self-esteem. She's so freaked out that Pandora decides a punishment will settle her down and help her feel better. She gives her some reassuring hugs, and 12 strokes of the cane straight from cold over her tight denim jeans. After the caning, Pandora peels down Nimue's jeans to inspect the marks, and gives her some rubs and final hand spanks over her cane stripes.
We've got some hot spanking videos and photo galleries coming up in May. Check back over the next week for new scenes including bratty gentleman Michael Darling getting his revenge on Sebastian, the tailor's apprentice; and me as a stablegirl spanked by D (who incidentally looks drop dead gorgeous in a tailcoat).
We've also got some delightful domestic scenarios coming up, including both Molly Malone and Michael Darling as domestic femmes sporting aprons and red spanked bottoms; and me and Alex as naughty girls who get the strap for staying up too late on their sleepover.
Dreams of Spanking provides imaginative, beautiful spanking erotica with a sex-positive, gender egalitarian and fairtrade ethos. With 117 spanking scenes in our steadily growing archive, six new spanking scenes a month and memberships starting at only £10, we offer good value as well as quality. Come dream with us!
I've just been working on the Dreams of Spanking update schedule for the next three months. This is a complex, ever-evolving beast that takes ages to write and a lot of thought. I never stick to it - but without it I'm completely lost. Week by week I look at the plan and re-organise things as I see fit, but some weeks it's nice to have a schedule to stick to without having to think about it.
At this point in time, I have enough spanking scenes filmed and saved (multiply backed up, of course) on various hard drives that if I never shot again, I would still have enough material to keep updating the site with one or two scenes a week until mid-November. Of course, I will shoot before then, because shooting is my favourite thing about running a spanking website.
Having so many scenes in the bank is a blessing: it gives the business a certain amount of security, and it gives me the luxury of uploading a diverse range of scenarios each month (rather than simply updating the site with a run of scenes starring the same performer every time I shoot with someone new). Diversity is a core part of the Dreams of Spanking concept, and each month I try to release a balance of material catering to a variety of tastes. (I love all of it, but then I'm coming to learn that most people are a little more discerning than me.)
You'd think that the more shoots you have to work from, the easier it would be to keep things nice and varied, right? I was surprised at just how complicated it turned out to be. Here are the (rough) guidelines I have set myself when planning my updates, as much as possible:
After the precarious juggling act involved in meeting all the former requirements, the last one is the one that most often slips. I also sometimes make exceptions for "theme weeks" - for instance, I recently deliberately uploaded Ring of Fire and Short Shorts in quick succession, as they are both candid, unscripted F/F spanking-for-fun videos, and I thought they went together nicely.
The resulting mix does throw up some interesting correspondences. When I uploaded The Undergardener's Birching I'd just published another fairly serious F/F Victorian punishment fantasy, and I had in mind that a similar F/M scene would provide a pleasing balance. I didn't realise until after The Rites of Spring went live a couple of weeks later how similar the slightly fantastical, romantic Beltane photo gallery was, visually, to Sebastian's punishment. Both scenes feature a spankee in period costume being birched bare bottom, outdoors, while holding on to the trunk of a tree. Clearly, my fantasies have recurring themes.
The other issue I keep running into is that I have a lot more F/F material than anything else. This is quite simply a consequence of how many female performers are already working in the industry (since pretty much every other site only pays women, a gender imbalance in the available performers is fairly inevitable). I'm constantly looking out for new male spankers and spankees that meet my high standards for casting, but meanwhile, female colleagues and friends are often travelling around and looking for work. Particularly in the case of international performers visiting the UK, it seems daft to miss an opportunity to shoot with someone awesome.
As a switch I can play either role, so the easiest way to put together a low-budget shoot with a friend visiting the country is for me to work with them, whether they are top or bottom. The result is twice as much F/F as any other orientation.
Luckily, most people love F/F, but I care about maintaining the site as a gender-balanced space. Although I have enough scenes filmed to keep me going until November, most of them are female spankee, and I keep running out of male spankee material and having to book new shoots. And so more scenes get added to the bank, and the cycle continues...
Really, though, this is a "diamond shoes are too tight" sort of problem. I love shooting with people of any gender, I love working with my friends, and I love having a reassuringly large content buffer. So when I heard that gorgeous young US model Mila Kohl is visiting the UK this month and seeking work to pay her way, I couldn't turn her down. I met Mila at the Texas All State Spanking Party last summer, where she struck me as clever and adorable, and I'm looking forward to seeing her again.
She's staying with our mutual friend Paul Kennedy of Northern Spanking, and Paul is going out of his way to facilitate Mila's shoot with us, which is very kind of him. He'll be involved in our shoot as top and cameraman, and I'm looking forward to welcoming both new faces to the Dreams of Spanking cast.
Of course, after the shoot with Mila my carefully-arranged schedule will be thrown into disarray as I'll have a handful of new scenes to work in, at least some of which I'll want to show you sooner rather than later. But juggling too many spanking videos of hot boys and girls is my favourite type of problem.
I think it's awesome when porn performers, particularly spankees and BDSM bottoms, blog about their experiences. Especially if you're filming edgy or non-consensual fantasies, reading about the performer's experience of the shoot in their own voice offers an essential perspective. Unlike an end-of-shoot interview, a performer blog is generally a voluntary undertaking, written in the person's own time, and with no obligation to say anything nice about the shoot unless they want to. I think it's really good that it's become the norm for spanking models to have blogs over the last few years. Alex in Spankingland offers insight into the experience of being a travelling spanking model, and is always a good read.
The second film that we did was interesting because it used creative camera work and had a unique point of concept. This video is currently available on Dreams, and's called "Alex's POV." It features a lot of shots which show what I can see during the spanking: shots taken as I turn over my shoulder and my own view of my bottom in a mirror propped up near us. This scene was great to film, because our characters were very nearly ourselves, and that's always a relaxed environment for me. I also like it because it's fairly physically intense while still being entirely done with Tom's hand: hard hand spanking is always a winning combination in my book.
Watching this movie after the fact, I was pretty pleased with the way that this captured the actual experience of the spanking. It was the video that I've watched myself in which was closest to my actual memory of the event. It also had a very intimate feeling surrounding it.
The next thing that we shot was a photoset to celebrate the Pagan holiday Beltane, or the rites of spring. This involved Pandora dressing me in a beautiful period costume and the use of lots of props, including real mead in the horn. I got to wear flowers in my hair and I loved my outfit, so it very much appealed to the "dressing up to make a fantasy real" side of things. The unfortunate part of this, though, was that it was March in England, which isn't a time when the weather is nice. It was grey and rainy out, and being outdoors with my shoes off and my skirt lifted wasn't exactly warm. In case I haven't complained about this enough on my blog, I don't enjoy being cold, or undressed in the cold, or getting hit with things in the cold. Still, I liked the idea enough that I soldiered on with it (no one forced me to go out and do it: I just got thru it by complaining a lot because I did actually want to). These pictures came out beautifully, and I love looking at them.
Our latest film continues the story begun in The Tailor's Apprentice (part 1), in which a young gentleman makes such a nuisance of himself while getting measured for a suit that the tailor's apprentice is obliged to take drastic measures.
In Part 2, Mr Darling returns to the scene of the crime...
The Tailor's Apprentice (Part 2)
Returning to collect his suit, Mr Darling musters his courage to confront the tailor's apprentice about the indignities he suffered on his previous visit. Humiliated, angry and sore, only one thing will satisfy him now: revenge. Sebastian is obliged to bend over and endure an embarrassing bare bottom spanking.
Meanwhile at Firm Hand, our own Thomas Cameron takes a tough approach to interrogation training, including humiliation. Cadet Leia-Ann Woods is bent over, bare bottom ready for 130 stinging smacks with a wooden hairbrush. “It was hard to take,” she admitted.
Spanking Sarah presents a story from St. Justs Academy where Bow is frantically trying to persuade Molly Malone to let her copy some of her exam answers. Molly refuses, so when the teacher returns Bow tells him that Molly tried to sexually interfere with her. I love Molly and Bow's facial expressions in this first photo. And the theme of a good girl being unfairly punished at school is always hot.
Bow's claim outrages the very moral Mr. Nightingale and he knows he has no choice but to take immediate and painful action. Molly is called to the front of the class and bent over a desk. She is first of all spanked on her drum tight white school knickers and then on her large firm bare bottom.
At Triple A Spanking, the lovely Alex Reynolds joins Paul Kennedy and Zoe Page for an exercise in conducting the perfect detention. Mr. Kennedy demonstrates the proper techniques of traditional school discipline, while Alex tries her best to avoid the consequences of her past transgressions, and Prefect Page takes notes for later.
Finally, Femme Fatale Films welcomes us to a day in the life of Mistress Eleise's houseboy. Failing her white-glove test leads to firm retraining. He is reminded of his position through the application of a slave collar, butt plug, corporal punishment, and psychological control. He will learn the painful pleasure of serving an uncompromising Mistress in the real world.
We've had two very different scenes go up on the site this week; the first a classic M/F punishment scenario starring Pandora Blake as a stablegirl caught napping in the hay; the second an edgy, fast-paced F/FM interrogation scene in which Will Savage plays a captured spy, and Caroline Grey the agent accused of fraternising with him. James Bond eat your heart out!
A sleepy stablegirl is caught napping in the hay. She's hauled to her feet, and her leathers and underwear are yanked down for an on-the-spot punishment spanking.
The stablegirl wriggles and complains so much that her superior takes sterner measures. She is upended over a haybale, and her bare bottom striped with the cane.
Afterwards she is left with her hands on the wall and her bottom on display, for all to see.
I don't know when the association between stables and spanking was formed in my young mind, but I've always fantasised about equestrian punishments. When D and I had the opportunity to shoot in a real, actual stableyard, we couldn't pass it up. I didn't own a pair of jodhpurs in those days, so we decided to match in leather trousers, which I suppose is a kink all its own, and tailcoats. D in that outfit pressed my buttons, at least!
By contrast, our latest film The Spy is a more innovative scenario combining spanking, bondage and interrogation, with a man and woman spanked together.
Here's the storyline. Captured spy Will Savage is brought in and bound for questioning. Interrogators Blake and Rutherford suspect that their associate Grey has been fraternising with the spy, and they devise a loyalty test: she is ordered to beat him.
Her hesitation confirms their suspicions, and Grey finds herself tied in place opposite Savage, and subjected to the same punishment as him. Despite his defiance, it seems that this spy has a chivalrous heart. If he won't talk to save his own skin, he might to save that of his lover - if lover she is.
How much does Grey know, and how well do she and the spy know each other? Who is his contact? And who will break first?
Our shoot with Mila Kohl last week was a funny one. I hadn't planned to shoot this month - I have more than enough scenes in the bank, especially starring female spankees. But she was visiting the UK and looking for work, and Paul Kennedy of Northern Spanking went out of his way to facilitate it, including driving her to my place and offering his services as top and cameraman, so it all sort of fell into my lap.
Plus, of course, Mila is gorgeous. Who wouldn't want to shoot her?
As a result, I didn't put much planning into this shoot and didn't have much invested in it - it was a "bonus extra" rather than a large scale production into which I put a lot of thought. We were shooting at my place, so I couldn't try to bring any of my more ambitious costume dramas to life. Instead I came up with some simple domestic scenarios, aiming for a relaxing, fun day rather than trying to fit too much in.
And you know what? It was one of the most chilled, enjoyable shoots I've ever been on. No stress, no expectations, and no anxiety about whether I'd achieve the results I wanted. Paul and Mila were both super professional and easygoing. We shot mostly in natural light, we didn't move the furniture around too much, and we shot three scenarios as photos only, which is always simpler than trying to shoot video as well. As a result the day turned out to be exceptionally streamlined, with everything happening ahead of schedule. And the results look great.
I don't think I'm going to scale back my ambitions any time soon, but it just goes to show that you don't always need to put in huge amounts of time, money and effort to create hot, good-looking spanking erotica. Sometimes a beautiful model, a simple scenario and good chemistry can be enough.
In the first scenario, Mila played a submissive who has been instructed by her dominant to undress, and wait for her to come home. I'm hoping to put this photo gallery up on the site this week.
Next we filmed a fun age-play video which may or may not have been inspired by Mila and Alex's sisterly bickering over twitter. Mila and I played cousins who were colouring and playing with our stuffed animals, but got into a fight which ended up with Mila drawing on my face in pen. I rushed off to tell on her, and her uncle Paul came in and spanked her.
However, Mila was sick of getting into trouble - after all, I had started the fight, it wasn't fair that I shouldn't be spanked. So she plotted her revenge, confronted me and threatened to tell Paul one of my biggest, worst secrets if I didn't take a spanking too.
I really love the photo gallery we shot next, featuring Mila relaxing in a bubble bath and blowing foam at Paul when he comes in to talk to her. Needless to say, she gets hauled out of the warm water and spanked on her wet bottom.
After lunch we moved the cameras into the bedroom, and shot a more serious scene. Mila played a young lady who had behaved very badly at the last dinner her father hosted. This time, he canes her before dinner so that the stripes will serve as a reminder during the meal to be on her best behaviour. Mila pouts and considers this pre-emptive punishment to be dreadfully unfair, but she has no choice.
Mila was very nervous about the caning, but she took it beautifully and the resulting stripes were gorgeous. I loved Paul's scolding in this as well - quiet, intense, loving and strict. I can't wait to edit this video.
After her caning I felt Mila had earned a bit of a break, so she relaxed with a glass of wine and I stepped in front of the camera for a caning of my own. There's nothing like watching someone else take the cane to put me in the mood for it! Paul and I shot an affectionate and somewhat giggly candid video which nonetheless involves a relatively serious cold caning with my newest cane.
I don't have any screengrabs of that yet, but since I now had some lovely cane stripes, we showed them off in one final photo gallery of me and Mila nude on the bed.
I'm so glad that I decided to take a chance on this shoot and squeeze it into my schedule, even though I'd initially felt that I didn't have time. The day turned out to be an absolute delight - as did Mila. I hadn't really spoken to her much at the Texas All-State Party where we met for the first time last year, but she is the sweetest girl and I really enjoyed spending time with her. She is also an absolute beauty and incredibly easy to work with, and I can strongly recommend her to any interested photographers or spanking producers!
It was also lovely to finally be able to bring my friend Paul, with whom I have been shooting spanking video on and off for six years now, into the Dreams of Spanking cast and crew. I love the photos he took for us, and being caned by him was a real treat. I expect he'll be back before too long.
Lady in Waiting is our first scene with the lovely Mila Kohl. It's not about a real lady-in-waiting, although that would make a fab historical scenario one of these days. Instead it's a domestic dominance and submission storyline which provides the opportunity for these delightful art nude photos of Mila by Paul Kennedy.
Mila has been given instructions by her dominant: to undress, and wait for her to arrive. She obeys nervously, wondering what awaits her, trying to arrange herself in a posture that will be found pleasing. Eventually Pandora comes home to find Mila fully nude, waiting submissively on her knees.
Pandora takes Mila over her knee and rewards her obedience with a firm but caring hand spanking.
Mila is beautiful in this gallery, a natural in front of the camera, with a charmingly shy submissive demeanour. She is also a highly intelligent, creative lady and a pleasure to work with, and this first scene was a lovely ice-breaker to help us get to know each other.
The dynamic of nude submissive, clothed dominant is one that is well explored in heterosexual pairings. CFNM (clothed female, nude male) is a genre of its own - one I didn't realise I liked until I discovered I'd unwittingly made spanking porn that counted.
CMNF also seems to be an acronym people use (clothed male, nude female), and barely a day goes by without images like this turning up on Tumblr:
The pattern is always the same: the submissive nude, and the dominant in formal clothing, either a smart suit or evening wear. The suit/nude dichotomy works regardless of gender. It's about contrasting the trappings of status, power and protection with vulnerability.
Clothed female has more versatility than clothed male however, as a ballgown fits the pattern just as well as a business suit.
This is a fascinating genre when it comes to thinking about gender presentation and power dynamics. The business suit/power dressing thing codes dominance as masculine; but elegant evening wear can also represent power as hyper-feminine. Either way, the tropes of masculinity and femininity tend to be heightened in these images; whether heteronormatively associating dominant with butch and submissive with femme, or queering those expectations.
I'm looking forward to playing with this theme further, and exploring the question of how presentation and dress relate to gender, power and consensual power exchange. I have a couple shoot coming up next month with D which will include some CMNF, and I'm not sure if we'll play it straight yet or include some sort of twist. I'd also love to shoot some clothed male, nude male at some point. As always, I'm open to ideas about ways we can create images of dominance and submission that are hot, interesting and innovative.
This week our theme is domestic goddesses - especially sexy, submissive, apron-clad ones. So put your feet up, relax, and let a well-spanked beauty bring you service with a smile...
First we have Molly Malone, who has been baking all day like a good little housewife. Now all her cupcakes need is 15 minutes in the oven: just long enough for Pandora to undress Molly down to her vintage lingerie and give her a hard hand spanking.
Once Molly's bare bottom is nice and pink, there's still time for twelve good swats with the wooden baking spoon.
Finally the cupcakes are ready, and Molly's round buns are also roasted to perfection. She ties the apron over her stockings and suspenders; Pandora won't let her have her clothes back until the cupcakes are iced. Until then, Molly is left to decorate the cupcakes with her bare red spanked bottom on display.
Cupcakes is a playful domestic F/F roleplay with a charmingly retro flavour. Yum yum yum!
But of course, not only ladies can be sexy domestic femmes! In our accompanying bonus gallery, playfully called Cheesecake!, we have Michael Darling wearing only a candy-coloured apron and a smile. He shows off his recently spanked bottom and strikes some classic pin-up poses.
It was the end of a busy day shooting domestic F/M scenes with Michael and Nimue, but somehow after the final scripted scene (which will be going up on the site next week, so you can see how Michael obtained these cane stripes) we all had some energy and enthusiasm left.
Michael's bottom was so beautifully welted that we decided to show it off in one final set of photos. He had brought a pink and blue apron which we hadn't got to use yet, and we came up with the idea of a gender-bending, naked-butler-meets-submissive-housewife scene, with Michael wearing only the apron and showing his marks while he pours the wine.
I couldn't resist the opportunity to twin this scene with Cupcakes starring Molly Malone. Playing at being a retro housewife can be hot for subby types of any gender - why let women have all the fun?
And yes, it's possible I may have a teensy kink for the image of a spanked bottom showing through the back of an apron.
Hooray, it's Saturday! Unfortunately this weekend is a working one for me as I have loads to get done before tomorrow, when I leave for my first real holiday in years. I'll be in France for a week with family and my plan is to spend the time drinking wine, reading novels and sunning myself by the pool. I can't wait.
Meanwhile I've got my work cut out getting everything ready for next week's Dreams of Spanking updates before I leave. Tom will be helping me keep the site updated while I'm away, and he's also helped me put together the latest spanking scenes for you from around the web.
At Firm Hand, psychology of corporal punishment is the focus of Leia-Ann Woods’ latest encounter with Mr. Cameron. While he uses a riding crop, she is obliged to request permission to remove each item of clothing. 45 strokes will test her resolve in Military Training.
At Straight Lads Spanked, eighteen year olds Karl and Johnny are star football players. It does not stop them from misbehaving though! They have been kicking a ball around private land and windows got broken. Coach Andy is furious! He drags the lads into the locker room and demands to know who was responsible. Neither Karl or Johnny own up and this makes the coach even more angry. He tells them that unless one of them confesses they will both be getting a good spanking. The threat does not seem to have the desired effect...
At Red Stripe the lovely Ten Amorette is over from the USA and she wants to try her luck at being a housemaid in the traditional British style. Unfortunately she did not realise that the British aristocracy are all a little kinky and still insist on beating their female staff for breaches of the rules.
That's how she finds herself bent over the master's knee, getting her bare bottom well spanked with his leather paddle.
At Triple AAA Spanking, Amelia Jane Rutherford has been working part-time helping out with the accounts of Miss Molly Malone's successful lingerie operation, but instead of reconciling the latest invoices and reports she had been surfing the internet for some very unsafe for work content, and has been caught viewing spanking erotica.
Molly is far from impressed at the way Amelia has spent her time. If it's a spanking she wants, then a spanking is what she will get!
At Hard Spanking Vixens, repeat offenders can expect hard corporal punishment. Police woman Lina deals with an unnamed male offender.
Meanwhile at Punished Brats, Veronica and Pandora are having a disagreement over everything from reasonable expectations to the dowdy maid's uniform. Finally Veronica has had enough and declares Pandora may remove the offensive uniform as she'll have little need for it for a while as her bare bottom is paddled.
