There are any number of ways to play a character in a spanking porn film. Bottoms can be bratty and sarcastic, eager and subservient, reluctant, excited, curious; tops can be loving and parental, or distant and clinical, or fierce and strict. Or, as in the case of David Oak in this week’s film, they can turn the perv factor up to eleven as they loom over the spankee at their mercy.
David - who is in reality of course extremely lovely! - does an amazing job in this role, as he first inspects Pandora’s handiwork and then throws her over her bed to show her some consequences. There’s something rather oily about the character he’s playing, but Pandora is not dissuaded - though some of her eagerness does dissipate a little once the spanking starts to get more difficult than she’d anticipated.
PS - if you enjoyed this one, make sure you check out its prequels Equestrian Pleasures and Victorian Strumpet - this has been a fantastically pervy spanking trilogy and we’ve loved seeing what a good reception it’s received!
This week brings the sequel and conclusion to our recent release A Spanking at School Means a Spanking at Home starring Kelley May and Richard McLean, and it certainly lives up to its title! Reluctant spanked schoolboy Richard has barely had a chance to catch his breath after the Headmistress’s ministrations when his father gets wind of the misdemeanour - he won’t bunk off Double Maths again in a hurry, that’s for sure.
Stephen Lewis is determined to present a united front with his son’s school, and so Richard ends up bent over and exposed for the second time in one day. This time he does at least have someone on his side: Pandora Blake makes a wonderfully supportive sister, coaching him through the sting of the slipper. She’s not keen to take his place, mind you...
Pandora has a chance to be just as supportive behind the scenes too, as this week’s backstage content gives us a glance into how we make sure everyone’s boundaries remain intact and nobody’s doing anything that isn’t working for them.
Every now and again, I see someone who has a particular gleam in their eye that just says ‘I will absolutely fuck you up’. It’s the twinkle of calm, quiet sadism; nothing big or flashy, just an indefinable glint that tells you you’re in for a real thrashing. Clara Hewitt, who plays the mother in this week’s new release, has that look.
She is also a consummate professional - at one point she delivers six cane strokes and leaves behind just three evenly-spaced stripes, which must take legendary aim when using an implement that moves fast enough to make what is technically a very small sonic boom (or so I’ve been told). One of our goals here at Dreams is to showcase some of the ways spanking porn can also be art, and goddamn but a spanking like that is certainly an art form.
Of course, she wasn’t the only professional on set. This was my first time watching either of Pandora’s co-stars in action, and I was enchanted by Faerie Willow - there’s a sort of glow to her that is immediately compelling. She looks incredible both in and out of her Daisy-Duke-style outfit, and her easy, relaxed manner somehow makes everything she does on screen seem perfectly natural.
There’s a lot to love about this scene, and I think Pandora has a blogpost in the works somewhere about why it was such an extra-special one for them and their cast and crew. It’s got a little bit of everything that Dreams of Spanking stands for: intimacy, sex appeal, humour, taboo. If you haven’t seen it yet, you absolutely won’t want to miss out.
(PS - you know I love to call out our most amusing adlibbed lines in these blog posts, because nothing makes a joke funnier like hanging a flag on it. This week’s entry: “Not while you’re eating a cheese sandwich”. That would...that would be a bit weird, yeah.)
We'd like to introduce you to two new members of the Dreams of Spanking cast who will be making their debut in this weekend's release - Clara Hewitt and Faerie Willow
With 25 years of sex work experience, Clara Hewitt is the educated, classy disciplinarian of your fantasies. Her favourite type of play is spanking, so she is well at home in the Dreams of Spanking cast!
Clara is in every corner of the Internet, sometimes under different names. You can find her on stripyscarf.com as Miss Matthews. There, you can read her blog, find out more about her and how to send her lovely gifts.
Her erotic stories are published under penname Amy Carter on Amazon. She explores D/s dynamics, edgy fantasies and the role plays we all dream of. Not only that, Clara's OnlyFans is overflowing with saucy content both as a top and a bottom for just $12 a month, including audio versions of her books.

I think I might be a little bit in love with Miss Kelley May. I’d not come across her till she filmed with us for some recent releases, and as a top she has a wicked gleam in her eyes that I find devastatingly compelling.
We do not get the impression, however, that the same is true for humiliated schoolboy Richard McLean in this week’s feature. Very often in our scenes there’s a sense that the character being spanked is secretly having the time of their life, or at least satisfying a long-held curiosity - not so this week, as our recalcitrant student hesitates before bending over the Headmistress’s lap and flinches under her firm, sharp strokes. Fans of reluctant spankings are in for a treat!
As ever, our performers are just playing a part when they seem like they’d rather be anywhere but there. There’s a short behind-the-scenes clip at the end of this one in which Richard discusses how he made sure he was staying within his comfort area even as things became distinctly uncomfortable in his, er, area, and there’s some more backstage content on the way with Part Two in a few weeks time.
This week’s film is as topical as the lotions Lana Moon has probably been massaging into her patients’ particulars. When she realises that a particularly attractive patient of hers has been feeling a little lonely as a result of all the restrictions on visiting people in hospital, she decides to act the Good Samaritan and cheer them up a little - with some help from the pharmacy supply cupboard, of course! Sadly her boss doesn’t share her sense of fun, but in such critical times there’s no room to fire her - so Matron Blake has to get a little creative with Lana’s punishment.
Really, this one’s got it all. It’s sexy, it’s funny, the spanking is on point, the leather strap is gorgeous, and Lana’s bum looks incredible in that outfit. There’s a sort of campy irreverence to the whole scene that is decidedly British, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I’d found a new personal Dreams of Spanking favourite.
There’s a behind-the-scenes clip for this one too, which I always enjoy - “you should do an outtakes reel”, giggles Lana at one point, as she’s cracking jokes while stretched over Pandora’s knees with her bottom exposed. Given that we already do, that line was an obvious inclusion!
Here’s a thing I’ve learned from the past fifteen years of doing BDSM with people: sometimes it’s the smallest details of a scene or a dynamic that stick with you the most.
Our new release for the week sees Pandora wearing what is referred to in the film as the “punishment dress”; a pretty, flouncy frock that, when combined with her frilly pink knickers, makes up the outfit her character wears every time she’s earned a spanking from her husband.
It’s just an incidental detail, really. In and of itself, the dress doesn’t seem like much of a punishment - it’s not particularly slutty or exposing, there’s nothing inherently humiliating about it. It’s just a dress; one you could wear out to the pub, or in the office with a nice sharp blazer. But it’s the dress her husband has her wear every time he punishes her, the dress she’s had pushed up to her waist a hundred times.
Just think what that would be like after a while. Any time you saw it hanging in the wardrobe, you’d get a little thrill of excitement at all the memories it holds. Any time he told you to put it on, you’d know exactly what was happening without his needing to say another word.
His Spanked Wife is a lovely window into domestic discipline: the anticipation, the obedience, the remorse, the tenderness. You can see the love these characters have for each other in the way the wife kneels at the husband’s feet when they’re done, the sense of calm relief she seems to feel. But my favourite little detail, I think, is that knee-length, plain black punishment dress.
When it comes to film and audio editing I am self-taught. I didn't go to film school; I haven't studied how to produce audio or make videos. Everything that I do on this website, I've learned from teaching myself. There are big gaps in my knowledge, but I like learning - and I've had a lot of fun figuring things out by myself.
For Christmas last year my partner got me a decent pair of audio monitors. If the audio geeks amongst you are curious, they are preSonus Eris E5 studio monitors. Previously I was editing Dreams of Spanking audio on my desktop speakers, and a few months ago my desktop speakers stopped working - so I was using either a crappy pair of speakers that I got on Freecycle, or my equally crappy headphones, which are also not very good.
When you don't have good speakers, you can't really hear what's going on. So I was a little intimidated to suddenly have these professional quality audio monitors. When I listened to my recordings - and, worse, to my previous attempts at audio editing - they sounded dreadful. I wailed to Felix about this, and they helpfully replied "Oh good, the monitors are doing their job then."
The audio always sounded bad - and now I had a speaker system accurate enough to show me what it really sounded like. It was uncomfortable - but it meant that I could finally do something about it.
Since then I've learned a lot about editing and recording audio.
One of the most exciting things this has given me is some insight into how to record better audio. I use a wireless Zoom H2N Handy Record mic. Previously I found the audio from it, while very clean, wasn’t loud enough by itself even with the gain set to max, so I’ve been using the on-camera mic as well and mixing the two.
Using my monitors, I can get that mix sounding OK - not professional, but good enough. But it still sounds bad on my headphones.
My new equipment has shown me ways I can improve my recording. For example, when filming The Party Whip I placed the Zoom mic on a hardwood floor under a hardwood dining table, in order to get it close to the action without being in shot. Listening back on my new monitors, I can hear all the reverberation in that acoustic space full of hard surfaces. It sounds horribly echoey to me now - which means I have a chance of fixing it.
Last time I shot at home, I put a second rug down and hung mattress pads on the walls to create a more acoustically dampened space. Even those quick, low-budget additions improved the acoustics and made the audio sound better.
Next, I figured out that I've been facing my microphone the wrong way. Yes, I’m an idiot - but that’s an instant win to improve the quality.
Then I realised that even if I got something sounding good on my fancy monitors, it might still sound terrible on my headphones. Not many people watch porn on professional audio equipment, so I want it to sound as good as possible on a range of outputs.
Achieving that was an interesting challenge. In some cases the high-quality monitors make the audio sound worse, and in some cases they make it sound better. The monitors produce a higher range of frequencies, so they can reveal noise or badly balanced audio which wasn't detectable before. But sometimes that broad frequency range masks or balances noise which otherwise sounds super loud. Now I've started paying more attention to this stuff I'm a lot less accepting of those hissy, echoing or tinny qualities that are the hallmarks of bad sound engineering.
When I got stuck, Felix sat down with me for an hour and gave me a crash course in audio editing. I learned so much that I'm kicking myself for not doing it four years ago! Things I learned: how decibels work (I told you I was self-taught), how to bend compression to my will, how to use equalisation, and how to read frequency range using the spectrogram and plot spectrum tools in Audacity (the open source audio editing software that I use).
After an hour of playing around we got the audio sounding as good on my headphones as it sounds on the monitors. I'm so pleased! I can now ditch the on-camera mic entirely and rely on the Zoom mic to pick up high quality audio.
From now on, every Dreams of Spanking film will benefit from these new tools. I'm excited to keep learning and continue to improve the quality of the productions that are offered on this website. Being self-taught is all very well, but it turns out that sometimes, the most effective way to learn is to ask for help.
Our content is made possible by the incredible performers that star in it, and our Performer Spotlight series celebrates the cast of Dreams of Spanking for how they enrich our content with their unique style. In this instalment of Performer Spotlight, we’re welcoming a new face - Richard Mclean.
An eager spanko with a cheeky face and naughty bottom, Richard has always known he was into spanking. He’s been on the scene since 2016 when he attended his first kink night in England and has never looked back. You can find Richard on Twitter and Fetlife as SpankyKnight.
Richard got into filming in 2020 when a friend was looking for help filming content. He thought he was purely submissive, but when the opportunity presented itself to spank a lovely lady’s bottom he quickly discovered that giving could be just as fun as receiving.
His debut on Dreams of Spanking will be in our upcoming release, The Panty Boy Next Door. You’ll get to enjoy Richard in a tight pencil skirt and sheer underwear as Pandora gives him a teasingly sensual over the knee spanking.
This is the first of many films starring Richard which will premiere on Dreams of Spanking throughout 2021. We’re excited for you to get your first taste of Richard Mclean this weekend in The Panty Boy Next Door
Can we take a moment here to talk about Miss Kelley May?
She’s never filmed for Dreams of Spanking before, but she’s been around in the scene for a while - and it shows. Her Dreams debut is a tour de force, the picture of discipline in a figure-hugging pinstripe dress. She knows exactly how to control her strokes with the heavy wooden paddle, leaving Pandora’s bottom red and stinging with minimal force.
Kelley is curvaceous, stern, scolding and sadistic, and I have immediately developed an enormous crush on her. Frankly she can paddle me any time she likes. (Um. Please?)
Pandora of course shines every bit as brightly as her new co-star in this week’s film. As is so often the case, one of the best things about her performance here is her facial expressions: the sense we have that she’s blasé about her punishment at first and then increasingly concerned as she begins to realise what she’s let herself in for.
In the end, she really is paddled and humiliated to her core - and I reckon she’ll think twice before cutting loose at a work dinner again.
