When John Beecroft told me he knew of a great seaside location for filming, it was with typical British understatement. "I'm not sure if it'll be suitable, you'll have to see what you think." I'm always on the lookout for new places to shoot, and when he sent me some pictures I assured him it looked fine. Imagine my surprise when I walked in and discovered the place was far lovelier than the photos. With high ceilings, plenty of space and beautiful antique furnishings it was a directors dream, and best of all, it used to be a school! I couldn't have imagined somewhere more perfect to shoot some traditional English punishment films.
I was first introduced to John by Zoe Montana, who met him a few years ago on the London spanking scene and also introduced him to Molly Malone. Molly and John have since become not only spanking playmates, but firm friends. The pair share a dry sense of humour and a taste for hard caning, role reversal and believable punishment scenarios. I've joined them in their spanking play a couple of times and it's always tremendous fun.
We've been talking for a while about capturing some of their play on camera, and at Molly's wedding last summer the pieces started to fall into place. John sourced the location, and Nimue and I travelled down to the south coast for a day of laughter, wine, and good old fashioned spanking.
We shot a mixture of F/F, M/F and F/M including two switch scenes, and the day as a whole was relaxed and incredibly fun. Highlights included Molly dropping deep into subspace while Nimue was caning her over the spanking bench; John playing a stuffy old parishioner who discovers Molly is hosting kink events and is determined to put a stop to it; and a revenge scenario in which Molly forces her old Headmaster to dress up in her school uniform and call her "sir"!
Every pairing had played together before and felt fully comfortable with each other, which always helps the juices flow. This resulted in scenes that felt really natural, and some superb ad libbing.
The first scene from that day will be out this weekend, in which strict Headmistress Ms Malone shows the Chair of the Governors that he isn't too old too be punished like a naughty schoolboy. Watch this space!
