This week’s offering has it all: schoolgirls, caning, feet, queer innuendo, blackmail, practically everything the discerning fetishist wants in a film.
One of my favourite things about this little duo of scenes focused on beatings off the beaten track is actually the friendship between the two girls played by Fairie Willow and Pandora Blake. They don’t seem to be romantically involved, but they’re absolutely partners in crime. They get each other into trouble and support each other through its consequences. When a punishment is happening they hold hands and when it’s over they compare marks. I’m a sucker for representations of femme friendship, and this is a lovely example of the genre!
The real focus of this pair of films though is the unusual locations to which Headmistress Hewitt chooses to apply her cane: thighs, hands, feet, over the top of still-angry welts. There were some firsts in here for Willow, who earlier in the day had shot her first ever cold caning scene, and she squrims and winces beautifully as Clara removes her white school kneesocks and canes the soles of her feet.
If you’re a fan of unconventional beatings and naughty schoolgirls, watch this space: we’re releasing new content every week, and as ever we still have a few tricks up our sleeves.
One of the beautiful things about relationships with an element of domestic discipline is that problems can be solved almost as soon as they’ve arisen. There’s little chance for one partner to let a minor niggle fester until it’s grown into a major issue, because there’s a system for that: both the dominant and the submissive partner know how to address these things.
Overtly, of course, the resolution is in the spanking itself - a punishment delivered as a response to thoughtlessness or poor manners or the breaking of a rule. There’s a lot to be said for it: it’s a bonding, intimate moment for both parties, something that creates endorphins and draws people together and lets everyone work through their tensions and stresses. A physical connection like that can go a long way to heal an emotional rift, and presenting it as a punishment lets the problem feel fully resolved.
I think there’s more to it than only that, though.
This week’s release starts with Carlos coming to Pandora with his apologies, his admissions and his concerns. He tells her that he understands now why his actions hurt her, and that he’s sorry; she explains what bothered her the most, and gives him a chance to listen and respond. This fictional couple’s domestic discipline dynamic is the heart of this film and the ensuing spanking is great fun to watch - but in real life the stuff that comes before it, the bit where they talk openly and honestly and share their deeper feelings about what went down the night before, would be a truly healthy and important thing.
All that being said, the high point for us is of course getting to watch Carlos bent so prettily over the bed, with his jeans at his ankles and his exposed bottom high in the air. He’s still a little red from his spanking the night before, and he feels every kiss of his own belt as Pandora thrashes him with it. And it is so very lovely to hear him ask her for the cane and count out the strokes...
As spanking aficionados ourselves, we like to feature a wide range of implements in our films. Bare hand spanking and canes are probably our most-used tools, of course, but we’ve got a bit of everything: paddles, belts, riding crops, floggers, hairbrushes, tawses, rulers and the occasional wooden spoon.
There’s something a bit special about leather, isn’t there? It has a certain smell, a certain texture. New leather is polished and stingy, but with age and use a leather implement becomes softer and more supple and packs more of a thud. The pointed ends of a tawse give a sharp, sudden kind of pain; the click of a belt-buckle before a beating adds a frisson to any encounter.
A razor strop is a flexible leather strap designed for the polishing of blades. They’re a little archaic now in the age of disposable razors, but once upon a time you’d find them hanging on every bedroom wall - in easy, convenient reach. Many of them have a metal loop on the end to make them easier to mount; ours doesn’t, for safety reasons (the bite that would add when spanking would be actively unethical), but it still has the classic polished wooden handle.
There’s a very particular feel to the razor strop. Leather paddles are heavy and rigid; tawses have split tails; belts tend to be much narrower. A strop is broad, flexible and supple, often soft with age and use but no less punishing for it when applied to the backside.
Rebecca Belacqua hadn’t experienced one of these until this week’s shoot - and she seems to take to it pretty quickly. She kicks and squirms beautifully, both performer and character wriggling and wincing under Kelley May’s hand. There’s a lovely moment in the backstage extras where Kelley mentions how much she’d been enjoying her co-star’s reactions; “I kept having to remember that I’m her mother in this scene, I can’t look at her like that!”
I, too, have always loved being beaten with leather - so I particularly took to this scene, and should you share my predilections I’m sure you’ll agree.
One of the categories this week’s release has been filed under is “complex consent”, and the consent dynamics going on in this film are indeed complex - as is the balance of power. Sarah’s the one getting spanked, bottom bare and school shoes kicking in the air, but she could blow this whole thing wide open at any moment. She’s not even getting anything material out of the deal; she’s only here as a favour to a friend.
She stares directly at said friend the whole time she’s having her backside tanned with a hairbrush. There’s pain in her expression - after all, she’s having her backside tanned with a hairbrush! - but I reckon there’s an element of challenge to it, too. “You’ll owe me for this one, John.”
John, for his part, seems...a little guilty and awkward, perhaps, but not entirely unhappy about the situation. Sarah does look so very pretty in her school uniform and pigtails, after all, and it’s a beautiful bottom to watch as it’s exposed and reddened.
All told, this little film has a surprising amount of depth to it - and I can’t help but wonder what kind of revenge Sarah might one day try to enact...
We are delighted to feature Rosie Bower in our Halloween special: Captured Pirate Queen.
This is not Rosie's first time on Dreams of Spanking: some of you will know her as Rosie Bottomley. Rosie eagerly offered up her bottom to fight UK porn censorship and took 50 strokes of the cane for our sponsored caning fundraiser.
Rosie has also written stories for Dreams featuring naughty schoolgirls and their punishments. You can hear her tales Head Girl, Stacey's Caning and Lucy's Punishment.
We sat down with Rosie this week to chat all things spanking, and her experience on set with Pandora.
How did you get into spanking and working with Dreams of Spanking?
I’ve worked for various different sites in the past, and it was very exciting to finally get a chance to work on DoS. I’ve known Pandora for a long time, but logistics have never quite worked out for me to appear on the site before now.
It was a particularly satisfying shoot because in addition to this scene, we filmed a couple of others which gave me the chance to play a real range of different characters, from completely rebellious in this scene, to coy and curious in another, to very enthusiastic. That’s something that I’ve always loved about DoS; there’s such a variety of scenarios, with concepts and characters you can really get your teeth into. It always feels very well-thought-out and genuine.
What have you been working on?
During lockdown I’ve mostly been filming with my girlfriend, Nimue. I love novelty and variety, and luckily she does too, so it’s always fun coming up with new ideas for content. I'm very excited to start expanding my horizons again now that things are gradually getting more back to normal, and I have plans to get spanked by someone new very soon, which I'm thrilled about. You can find me on Nimue’s sites: nimueallen.manyvids.com and pocketstars.com/nimueallen.
Tell us about your experience shooting Captured Pirate Queen
The fun of this scene actually started before we were filming, because we both had a lot of fun getting dressed up — Pirate Queen is a big change from the usual sorts of costumes you get to wear for a spanking scene! I was terribly spoiled during the shoot because I always have more fun when I’m comfy, so we spent a while arranging pillows and getting the cuffs just right. We actually started out using a riding crop, but it sprang apart quite dramatically a few minutes in, so we had to switch to the paddle. The paddle we used left really interesting vivid marks — I had these lines of dots where the stitching was, which lasted a very long time afterwards.
I got very into the character, and had an absolutely fantastic time being recalcitrant and stubborn and chewing up the scenery like the villain in a cheap horror film. Pandora couldn’t get me to stop talking back long enough to actually end the scene!
You can see Rosie Bower with Pandora Blake in our upcoming film, Captured Pirate Queen. Available Saturday 3pm BST on Dreams of Spanking.
High dudgeon on the high seas this week as rival pirate queens Rosie the Brave and Banshee Blake have a run-in of truly epic proportions. There’s nothing meek or submissive about the Dread Captain Rosie, for all she’s found herself in a highly compromising position: one rather gets the impression that she’s often bested Banshee Blake, who is clearly half-mad with power at having her counterpart so thoroughly in her clutches.
Perhaps the Banshee really will be Admiral Blake someday, with Rosie’s ship forming part of her piratical fleet. Till then, she has her captive rival to occupy herself with - and plenty of ideas for how to break her.
Chief among them is to transform this former Captain into the Ship’s Wench, tied down and presented for the whole crew to use at their leisure. She’ll be bound there, helpless, as one by one Blake’s men come and pay her a visit. This parting promise particularly caught my attention; many of my own fantasies run along similar lines.
If that’s a predilection you share - or if you simply love seeing curvaceous piratical brats display their ample cleavage and get marked up beautifully by a leather tongue whip - this one’s for you.
