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!
