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...
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 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...
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.
Mr. Lewis might be cagy about his methods, but the Sunday School gets results. From the smartly pressed uniforms to the birch cane hanging on the wall, he’s a real traditionalist - and new student Becci is about to find out exactly what that means.
This week’s offering is a richly detailed ladette-to-lady transformation, complete with a gorgeously voyeuristic through the window caning shot that will leave you daydreaming about stumbling across Stephen’s front door while out on a weekend stroll. The spankings and canings in this film were truly challenging to take, and it was a tough but rewarding shoot for our star performer - who is left with a set of welts that I’m sure they were tending to for days after the fact.
It also has an undercurrent of the kind of irreverent humour we do best, with plenty of darkly amusing one-liners and a beautifully bratty performance from Becci Belacqua. Stephen Lewis was as ever a consummate professional and managed to keep a straight face throughout, but I’m sure it was a challenge at times!
We also have a bumper offering of backstage content this week, with a behind-the-scenes reel featuring humour, hijinks and even some bonus spankings for our crew. There are some great examples of healthy, professional negotiation in there, too - all in all, this week’s release has become an instant favourite for our team, and we know you’ll love it just as much.
In 2021, we’ve grown our cast and crew to include some incredible people. This week, we are delighted to introduce you to Becci Belacqua.
An Epicurean hedonist and proudly autistic decadent slut, Becci delights in complex power dynamics and wicked taboo fantasies.
Becci can be found on JustForFans where they post salacious content including collaborations with friends of Dreams, Eryn Rose and Faerie Willow. You can follow also follow them on Twitter to keep up with their adventures.
Like us, Becci creates custom films on request so you can bring your fantasy to life. Becci is also available to star in Dreams of Spanking customs film, which you can commission here.
Becci says of joining the Dreams team:
"I am thrilled for the chance to work with Pandora/Blake for Dreams of Spanking. Blake inspired me in my own work when we first met at a porn film festival, and I have been following Dreams of Spanking for years, wanting to be in front of the camera myself. Finally getting to work with Blake on spanking fetish content is a long time dream coming true."
Becci will make their debut on the site with Stephen Lewis this weekend. Becci plays a belligerent goth who comes to Stephen for tutoring, only to find his teaching methods are quite unusual. Becci was a joy to work with, and we had the privilege of delivering their first ever caning!
See Becci Belacqua in Sunday School, out this Saturday on Dreams of Spanking.

This week we’re wrapping up our brand new three-part series Benefit in Kind, with a simmering conclusion that turns the tables on our devious landlady. This was a fun scene for Nimue Allen to shoot, because it had been a fair while since she’d last been spanked - Pandora thoroughly enjoyed getting to reacquaint her with it, and her bottom marked up beautifully!
Over the years we’ve showcased a great many IRL dynamics here, and it’s often a high point of our work. Lots of our films feature real-life couples, but those aren’t the only connections that come across beautifully on camera: real, genuine friendship between co-stars who have known each other well for a long time is just as lovely a thing to see.
The fictional connection between the two characters here works just as well, with the tenant immediately enjoying her newfound power (I rather think she might indulge in some recreational spankings in future!) and the landlady eagerly accepting her month-long punishment.
If you’re a fan of OTK spankings, unequal power dynamics or curvy bottoms in sheer tights, you won’t want to miss this.
There are a great many ways to be submissive. Some subs and bottoms are eager to please, keen to do anything their dominant partner might enjoy; others are mischievous or bratty or even reluctant, misbehaving on purpose or feigning ignorance of their misdeeds. Most inhabit all of these roles at some time or another, according to mood or circumstances or desire.
Carlos Green’s character in this week’s release is treading the line between bottom and brat, both craving a spanked backside and not wanting to give in to a punishment he’s not sure he deserves. And in the end, that’s a winning strategy for him - because he not only gets himself rosy and paddled, but also leaves with the promise of further punishment once he’s shown some repentance.
I reckon he’ll come round in the end, of course. Who wouldn’t, if it earned them another spanking from Pandora Blake?
I’ve written here before about how Clara Hewitt’s work with us has become something of a favourite of mine. She’s a woman of remarkable talents - we’ve seen her give six strokes and leave one mark, which I can’t imagine is easy! - and there’s a sadistic gleam in her eyes that I find rather compelling. It makes her a natural for our popular English Headmistress roles, the indomitable leaders of old-fashioned boys boarding schools and swanky finishing academies for elegant young ladies.
In this week’s film, though, a slightly different skillset is called for: she punishes the two recalcitrant girls by tawsing their hands and thighs, virgin territory unused to receiving such treatment. Even veteran Pandora is left with a beautiful set of fierce red welts!
There’s a good reason most spanking fans prefer to receive their beatings straight to the bottom. One’s hands or thighs will sting far more, and skin that hasn’t often been punished is far more prone to mark. From the top’s perspective, aim becomes more important than ever: you must be mindful of potential wraparound to the incredibly delicate skin of the inner thigh, for one thing.
If you’re a fan of spankings off the beaten track (or off the beaten bottom, rather), watch this space - there’s actually a Part Two for this period drama, in which Clara’s cane is applied to yet another painful location...
I always enjoy the multi-part releases we sometimes get to do here. It gives the performers a chance to really warm up to their roles, and lets them explore all the different nuances of the characters they’re playing; are they enthusiastic or reluctant as spankers and spankees? Do they take to it like a natural, or find that the reality of having their backside tanned doesn’t quite live up to the fantasy they’d constructed? Are they content with the roles they’ve chosen, or do they fancy turning the tables every now and again?
This week’s film is the second of three parts of an ongoing story, in which Nimue Allen plays a somewhat unscrupulous landlady hoping to receive some benefits in kind from new tenant Pandora Blake. Part One saw Pandora put down her deposit, in the form of a bare hand OTK spanking - the curious tenant’s first. She seemed to enjoy it, so what’s next for our unconventional couple?
Pandora isn’t too worried when time to pay up her first month’s rent rolls around, thinking she’s got this spanking thing down. Her mood shifts, however, when she realises it won’t be so easy this time: a few mishaps over the first weeks have resulted in some extra punishment due!
This is a romp through a veritable arsenal of implements, as Pandora is spanked over Nimue’s lap with a bare hand, a firm slipper, a heavy hairbrush and finally Nimue’s favourite leather paddle. The real star of the show here though is Pandora’s face, with a closeup camera giving us plenty of shots as she pouts, winces and wriggles in remorse.
I’m definitely looking forward to part three of this one - and maybe by then Pandora will have learned her lesson and cleaned up her act a bit!
