What a month it's been! The last couple of weeks have kept me so busy with design projects, activism, planning April's US tour and other pleasant distractions that I've got totally behind with blogging the latest spanking scenes at Dreams of Spanking. I'll post them two at a time until we're up to date.
First up we have the third and final part (so far) to our historical military series Havelock's Campaign, in which Thomas Cameron stars as the swash-buckling, pleasure-loving hussar Major Harry Havelock.
This was the final scene of our week long location shoot last September. We'd been fiming for six consecutive days and had just finished a day shooting with Andrew Shada. After Andrew's scenes were wrapped, Nimue asked if we could shoot just one more. She'd seen Tom's performance of Havelock in The New Lieutenant and Military Discipline from behind the camera, and had developed a powerful urge to play with him. I was more than happy to facilitate.
The resulting film is really quite special. The intimacy and connection that had developed between the three of us during the week really shone through in this scene, which got rather naughtier than I'd expected.
Nimue's characterisation of the bold, saucy wench who knows exactly what she wants gave the whole thing a consensual spin: for all the historical setting, this is at heart exactly what it was in real life, two likeminded kinksters exploring their mutual joy in spanking and erotic dominance and submission.
Truth be told, I didn't realise quite how naughty Tom and Nimue were being until I came to edit this one. During the shoot I was handling the face camera, and I couldn't see what Tom's hands were doing to make Nimue so flushed and breathless. It wasn't until I loaded both cameras in my video editor and started to piece the scene together that I realised how rude he was being. Oh! I stopped, blushed to the tips of my ears, realised I was really quite turned on, and squirmed in my seat before settling down to watch more. If you want to know what had such a strong effect on me, watch the trailer to the end:
It was hilarious in a way: me, a spanking pornographer, shameless and unshockable, flustered by some unexpected sensuality. It was the surprise of it that really got me - the fact that even though I'd been in the room at the time, I'd had no idea what was happening. I love that even after seven years of making porn. it's still possible to surprise me. .
If you like anal eroticism and genuine intimacy, you'll also enjoy our recent photoset Spank Me In Stockings.
This bonus photogallery wasn't planned. Tom took these photos of me during our date last Sunday; I dressed up for him, and he took some photos thinking that perhaps one or two might be good enough to publish on my blog. I wasn't wearing make-up, and without it, being photographed made me feel unusually shy and vulnerable.
Wearing "spank me" stockings, a ra-ra skirt and no make-up, Pandora shyly poses for her dominant. As he spanks her bottom and thighs, straps her and inserts a plug, nothing escapes the camera's gaze.
The outfit made me feel like a Moulin Rouge girl, a courtesan sent to please a prestigious client with sophisticated tastes. The scene that followed included over the knee hand spanking, the wooden hairbrush on my bottom and thighs, anal exposure, embarrassment and a butt plug that stayed in while he continued to spank me with hairbrush, leather strap, paddle and cane. It was an incredibly erotic scene and Tom continued to take pictures throughout the spanking. Only when our afternoon got much more sexually explicit was the camera left behind.
When I came to look through the photos, to my surprise I realised they were good enough to share. I've never posted photos of me without make-up on this site before. It's yet another act of exposure that makes me feel shy and vulnerable all over again. (Anyone would think I liked it...)
These candid pictures weren't intended for publication, and they weren't staged. This is raw, homegrown, all-natural kink. No make-up, no artifice, just me and my top doing what we do. Enjoy!
I'm not sure how I didn't notice, but I realised on Tuesday that since we updated the site's content management software a couple of weeks ago, there were some problems with registering new accounts. I'm really sorry I didn't notice sooner. I immediately reported the issue to D and he fixed it straight away, so the sign-up process is now fully functional again. At the same time, we also fixed a related bug with our contact form. If you've been trying to create an account and not been having much luck, please do try again as the problem has now been fixed.
It's possible there might still be other bugs we haven't spotted yet, so if you run across anything that doesn't seem right, please do get in touch and let us know so we can fix it.
So now there's nothing to stop you signing up to have a look at our two latest videos - and I promise you that both of them are very much worth it. First up we have a classic historical fantasy starring stunning spankee Lola Marie. It has already proved extremely popular with our members and if you click to view the free photos and video trailer, you'll see why!
Lola Marie is the scholarship girl at a Victorian school founded to educate promising young women. She works hard and tries to behave herself, but the rules are very strict and she keeps breaking them without meaning to. Normally she is clever or lucky enough to not get caught, but this time she's really done it. She has formed a close friendship with one of the grooms from the stables, and they have been caught together. Lola finds herself standing in front of the schoolmistress Miss Blake, facing the ultimate sanction - corporal punishment.
Our most recent film is another historical punishment scenario - this time a traditional boarding school story with a twist. Here the schoolboy is the son of the Headmaster, who thrashes him in the empty school of the summer holidays. Michael Darling is super hot as the bratty young man, and his peachy bottom is to die for!
As the son of the Headmaster, Michael is the only one left at school after all the other boys have gone home. As he prepares for University, his father has one last surprise in store. Michael is told he will be punished for a term-time prank - even though he and the others have already been caned. His father refused to give Michael any special treatment during his time at school, but he has always had higher expectations of his own boy. Now term is over, the Head proposes to punish Michael again, this time as a man who should know better. It won't therefore be the cane again, but the instrument of judicial correction appropriate to a young man, which Thomas himself endured as a boy: the birch.
This was Michael's first ever birching, and his last scene of the day - always a good time to try something a bit more intense. He was curious to try the birch, but he wasn't sure whether or not he would be able to take it, so we decided to build in a scene which gave him the choice to back out once he'd found out what it felt like. (Before we started filming I took a stroke with this birch to test it and make sure there weren't any sharp edges or anything. It felt fine, and in fact I enjoyed it so much that I asked for some more strokes with it during a photoset at the end of the afternoon!)
We decided to give Michael two strokes initially so he could see what it felt like, and then the choice between a further ten with the birch or fifteen with the cane. We would have been happy either way, but in the end, he opted for the birch. This twelve stroke birching was pretty serious, and he took it brilliantly - well enough to make his in-scene father proud.
My film about feminist submission, self-pleasure and spanking fantasies, My Inner Little Girl, will be screened at the Cinekink festival on Saturday 1 March, at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City. I won't be able to attend the screening but if you want to go and tell me how it went, you can register a ticket here.
Two young lovers find themselves caught in flagrante delicto by a master magician - and he isn't impressed. After thrashing his apprentice for failing to rein in his passions, Master Finlay informs Sophie that she has untrained magical ability, and must learn to control it or she will put herself and others in danger. He offers to take her on as his second apprentice. Sophie can't believe her good fortune - her old life was not worth clinging to, and she accepts the opportunity gladly, even though it means undergoing to a painful initiation ceremony.
I've always loved the idea of sacred or ceremonial kink; the use of blindfolds, restraints, whipping and flogging in magical ritual. There's something deliciously objectifying about being a ritual object or a sacrifice to the gods, body mortified to raise power for a higher cause.
On the other hand, blindfolds and flogging can play a part in an initiation ceremony or a rite of passage, where the focus of attention is very much on the celebrant - as with the ritual conducted to mark Sophie's initiation into the path of magical learning. Either way, this is about using pain and sensory deprivation to achieve an altered state of consciousness.
Now that she is officially subject to the magician's authority, Sophie must learn to control her passions and her powers. To teach her this lesson Master Finlay straps her bottom soundly with a razor strop of worn, thick leather.
But even the pain of Sophie's punishment - or the chores she is set afterwards - do not diminish her joy at finally finding a place where she belongs.
Happy Valentine's Day! A controversial holiday if ever there was one. Personally I can take it or leave it. It's provided a nice excuse for filth on past years - but then, I take excuses to have hot kinky sex wherever I can get them, even "you just came out of the shower", or "it's Tuesday". It's like the way some couples use bratty flirting as an excuse for light-hearted punishment; it's fun to have a reason, but sometimes any reason will do. The day itself isn't special unless you want it to be, and in that sense it's a day just like any other.
For someone with two long-term partners, it may surprise you that I'm spending tonight alone. This wasn't deliberate, it just worked out that way, but I'm happy with it. We didn't exchange any cards, and I've spent the day editing spanking photos, nursing my sore bottom from yesterday's Bottom's Up Spanking party, chatting to friends on IRC and generally practicing self-care.
So tonight I'd like to wish an extra-special Happy Valentine's Day to all those of you out there at home, like me, indulging in a relaxed Friday evening rather than romantic shenanigans. Romance is nice and all, but for me, happiness starts with the support and understanding of good friends, with self-acceptance, and self-love.
(And yes, feel free to read that in the "hurr hurr, self-love" way. I do run a porn site, after all. Self-pleasure is totally part of my usual self-care routine - and has played a part in my evening, what about yours?)
In that spirit, I hope you enjoy our special Valentine's Day photo gallery starring myself and D. These are the most sexually explicit photos I've ever published, and even better, they were entirely unplanned. This is real love, real lust, and real, joyful sex. If they bring you pleasure, it will make my night. Happy Friday! ♥
Greetings from the Dreams of Spanking backstage area! I can't quite believe it's been almost 4 months since I came to work for Pandora, it doesn't seem anywhere near that long. Time flies when you're having fun, right? I've had to learn a lot of new things, and I've tripped over myself once or twice, but it's still the most positive working environment I've ever been in. We're coming up to a very busy few months, what with Pandora's trip across the pond, and shooting fantastic new scenes with some fabulous new performers. We're going a mile a minute at the moment - but I wouldn't have it any other way!
I'm a little ashamed to admit that I don't always have the time to watch all the new scenes in their entirety (though this is gradually fading the longer I work here), but Pandora insisted that I'd enjoy her newest film with Mila Kohl and Paul Kennedy, and she wasn't wrong. It's a light-hearted age play scene with Mila at her bratty best; her protestations of innocence are hilarious and adorable, and you'll love the way she kicks and wriggles over Paul's knee!
Pandora loves to tease her little cousin Mila, but Mila takes things too far one day when she retaliates by colouring in Pandora's face in red pen. Pandora runs to tell. Mila is outraged to find herself taken over Paul's lap and spanked, and vows to get her own back. Mila returns with a slipper and blackmails Pandora into bending over and taking a spanking until her bottom is also coloured as red as felt tip pen!
This scene is definitely my favourite since I started working here; it's sweet, funny and adorable throughout, and Mila's expressions and exclamations during her spanking feel so authentic that you genuinely feel for the punishment she's getting. Paul doesn't hold back with his punishment, but even so, you can feel the love in every impact. However, the best part is when Mila turns her misfortune back on Pandora, and gives her a thorough and well-deserved pummelling with a slipper! Mila is equally comfortable as spanker or spankee and it's wonderful to see how fluidly she and Pandora communicate and move around each other through the scene. I never thought I'd be able to describe a spanking video as heartwarming, but it really is, and it's capped off by the cutest victory squeal you'll ever see.
We hope you've enjoyed this delightfully silly interlude after the pure heat and intensity of Valentine's Day; I know I have, and I promise to be a good girl in future, and make more time to watch all the productions. There's a lot of amazing material to look forward to as we move into Spring and beyond... I really hope you'll come along for the ride!
I'm pleased to announce two new male performers who have been cast for our first shoot of 2014! Alexander Knight and Richard Barton will be joining us alongside experienced hands (and bottoms!) Nimue Allen, Molly Malone and our old scene friend John Beecroft for a two day spankstravaganza next week.
With John's help, we've found a lovely old-fashioned venue which will enable us to explore traditional and historical themes including evacuees, wicked stepmother, university student and plenty of school scenarios. Molly, John and Nimue are all switches, which means that over the course of the two days we'll be able to shoot every gender orientation! As always, however, I have far more female spankee material already filmed than male spankee, so the focus for me will be M/M with Alex and Richard on day two.
Dr Richard Barton has made a name for himself as a no-nonsense M/M top for sites such as Sting Pictures, CP Services and Manc Spank. Dr Barton is known for his deadly accuracy with the cane, his fluent scolding and wicked sense of humour.
Richard is a lifestyle player who makes spanking videos for the love of it. He greatly enjoyed the believable storylines and high production values of Sting Pictures, but when they stopped filming in the UK he missed working with them. I was flattered that when he saw Dreams of Spanking, he was sufficiently impressed to write and offer his services.
To find out more about Richard Barton, have a read of this interview over at Jockspank from 2010, which contains some fascinating questions and answers, as well as lots of tantalising spanking photos from various of his films.
I particularly enjoyed his description of the following spanking fantasy he'd love to see immortalised in film:
A seventeenth century schoolroom with lots of dark wooden desks and panelling. At the front is a large desk for me, the schoolmaster. I am dressed in black cap and gown and next to the desk is the birching horse, with a birch rod lying across it. In a basket in the corner of the classroom is a collection of freshly made birches.
The boys are seated at their desks, sweating over their Latin primers. A few of them are already sitting rather gingerly as they have made silly mistakes in their compositions and taken a trip across the horse to have their bare bottoms crispy swished with the stinging twigs – what bliss!
I don't think next week's location will quite do as a seventeenth century oak-panelled schoolroom, but it certainly seems that Richard and I are on similar wavelengths. I'm really looking forward to working with him.
I'm also incredibly excited to introduce our new male star Alexander Knight. I've known Alex for a couple of years. He's in his mid-twenties, a lifelong kinkster with a penchant for rope, spanking and dressing up. He describes himself as a "pain slut" and has been spanked hard in the past, but not as often as he'd like. Best of all, he's a total cutie.

Alex is totally new to spanking video. He's a switch, but he's a bit nervous about performing on camera and so wants to just play the spankee role until he's got the hang of shooting video. That's fine by me, and I'm sure that by the end of his first day shooting his nerves will be a thing of the past!
We've got some great scenes lined up for Alex, with a mixture of fair and unfair punishments, casting him as hapless schoolboy, deserving student, and gallant Victorian gentleman. And to mix it up a bit, he and Richard will be joined by Molly Malone for a touch of M/FM and MF/M.
I'm really looking forward to this shoot, and to working with Alex and Richard. I'll be sure to report back on what we get up to!
