One of my jobs here at Dreams of Spanking is to write the descriptions for each new release before they go out on the site. I was excited to get to this one - partly because I have a huge thing for Kelley May (who doesn’t?), but also because when Blake sent me the film they described it as “one of my hottest filming experiences ever”. They’ve been in this business a long time; they’ve had a lot of very hot filming experiences. I was looking forward to seeing what made this one special.
Believe me when I say that it isn’t hard to figure out. One of my biggest turn-ons is a domme who talks to me; someone who can use their tone and their language to build a headspace up around us, pull me down into a bubble of our own creation. Kelley is particularly good at it, and that’s exactly what she does in this scene.
Blake starts out all macho and tough-guy, talking back and trying to ignore their girlfriend’s attempts to start a conversation. Kelley takes them apart gradually, every word and every decision a new little mindgame to get Blake into the headspace they’re really craving. By the end Blake is utterly undone, with a bright red backside, subby and relaxed in their girlfriend’s lap.
We’ve released some fantastic content recently (we really are on a roll, aren’t we?) but this film in particular is well worth a watch - especially for anyone who, like me, would love to have a domme like Kelley pull them into that deliciously broken-down headspace.
A small slice of history for you this week: Ms. Howard’s Little Girl was the first fan-requested, multi-performer custom film Pandora ever shot, and it was originally made way back in 2009. At the time it went unreleased, but if you’re a longstanding member you will have seen some of this footage before.
2013’s My Inner Little Girl is one of our best films. It’s a lot of fun to watch, it’s a gorgeous representation of what we’re trying to do here and it’s one Pandora had a great time making. Part of what makes it work so well is the fantasy sections, which are full separate little scenes in which this otherwise solo film acquires a co-star. Those daydreams came from this shoot: you’ll spot some of them in this week’s release, and the others originated in a film called Tammy’s Shame that we’ll be releasing in a few weeks time.
There are reasons we chose not to publicly release all this footage the first time around. The plot is a little hokey, and it has such a wealth of detail and description that our performers weren’t able to get entirely off-book. But as a team we’re better at editing and producing films now: this doesn’t look like footage we shot last week, but it has come together into something we think is well worth getting out there at last.
We all love My Inner Little Girl, we all love Zoe Montana and we all love stumbling across some unreleased spanking content - so we’re thrilled to finally bring you Ms. Howard’s Little Girl, and we think you’ll enjoy this trip down memory lane as much as we have.
Part of our mission here is to make porn that has a little narrative integrity: we love complex plots, coherent storylines and off-book acting. We find this helps us to build a world in which the characters feel real and like we can care about them, which in turn makes our scenes more powerful emotive experiences for performer and viewer both.
But even with all that said...sometimes we just need to get fucked.
Which isn’t to say that this week’s conclusion to our two-part film starring Tai Crimson and Pandora Blake doesn’t have a story behind it. It’s been a long time in the making (this footage has been unreleased for a good few years now!) and the reception to Part 1 was fantastic, with many of our viewers loving how filthy and explicit Tai and Pandora are with each other. If that was your favourite thing about Spank My Hole, you’re in for a treat: Fuck My Hole is even dirtier, with Tai’s gorgeous bottom high in the air as she wriggles and squirms in delight while Pandora brings her to a stunning, ecstatic crescendo.
“I don’t think you could ever be fucked enough”, Pandora says toward the end of the scene, before bearing down bodily on Tai to let her feel as stuffed full as possible. And, frankly, we all agree.
After two years of communicating in a more online way than ever before, many of us have seen sides of other people’s lives that we never thought we would. We’ve met our colleagues' cats, seen our therapists' kitchens and had late-night conversations in our friends' bedrooms - and learned all kinds of things about them as a result.
My Lesbian Goth Girlfriend joins a whole new genre of ‘video chat fiction’ inspired by the ways we’ve communicated with each other throughout the pandemic. Emma’s playing the part of an inexperienced spankee in a new relationship, blushing and giggling over Zoom as she fills her best friend in on all the salacious details. Of course, when Pandora overhears their chat she’s struck by a singularly revealing notion - and we get to peep in through the webcam while she carries it out.
The end result is a very red bottom and a friendship taken to a whole new level by a quick catchup video call. And as an added bonus, both of our performers really do look great in those outfits - and Emma’s resoundingly through hairbrush spanking must have been sore for hours after the shoot was over!
Proof of Innocence is something of a hidden gem; it was shot over a decade ago, and then released by its visiting performers on their own blog. We’ve always wanted to share it with the Dreams of Spanking audience, though, so we’ve pulled it out and polished it up - and, as an added treat, released it entirely for free to the world at large. Who doesn’t love free spanking porn?
This was a particularly special film to shoot: it was made entirely by two real-life D/s couples, both of whom brought their electric chemistry and authentic dynamics with them to the set. It was the first time Kaelah had done anything like it on camera, and the first time she’d played with anyone other than Ludwig. She wrote a beautiful post about it on her own blog, and Pandora has written about it too; both posts are well worth reading, and give beautiful insight to the context of the film itself.
The film also represents the beginning of a beautiful journey for Kaelah and Ludwig, who went on to shoot for Dreams of Spanking several more times. If we’ve whetted your appetite and you’d like to see more, you’ll find their other scenes right here - each one featuring inspired plot, in-depth characterisation and a blistering spanking.
Pandora Blake is the name that I've been using for my porn work since I first began in 2006, starting with my shoots on English Spankers and Girls Boarding School. In that time I've matured. I've had a child, come out as non-binary, become a business owner and activist. I've undergone immense personal growth and hope to continue to do so. I've retained the name because it's very recognizable for people who are fans of my early work, but I don't feel that it expresses my full self.
Pandora, as a very feminine name, feels like a persona that I put on for work when I'm playing a feminine character. When I'm doing activism work, I tend to go by Blake as a gender neutral version of my name which feels more comfortable for me and more expressive of my non-binary self. So on Dreams of Spanking, when I'm performing as a woman, which I'm still very happy to do, I will be referred to as Pandora and she/her. But when I'm playing a male role or doing a scene where I'm my own non-binary self, I will be referred to as Blake and they/them.
I know that for many people sexual desire is highly gendered. Our fantasies are often informed by the cultural categories we grow up with, and a lot of us are attracted to very masculine, or very feminine, archetypes. I get that. And so I don't mind playing those masculine or feminine roles in adult roleplay; in fact I actively enjoy it. It's an outlet for two facets of my complex gender identity.
I am Pandora. I am also Blake. I am Pandora / Blake.
They say that there are only seven basic stories in all of history, and we’ve taken artistic licence with all of them in this week’s mythological daydream of a film. When we managed to arrange a weekend’s worth of shooting in a gorgeous period house with two amazing performers at our disposal, we knew we wanted to try a few new things - and Venus Chastising Cupid was an incredibly fun tale to explore.
Faerie Willow was a perfect pick for our cheeky, mischievous take on Cupid, while Clara Hewitt’s knack for maternal sternness made for a great reinterpretation of classical readings of Venus. It was a great weekend of filming all told, and this was a wonderful way to wrap it up - particularly as it’s a scenario that makes fantastic use of the pink, stripy welts Willow had all over her bottom from earlier scenes!
We don’t claim to have absolutely nailed the scholarly accuracy in our retelling of this forgotten legend, but we certainly had a whole lot of fun with it.
Kinky people talk about headspaces a lot. It’s the word we’ve come to use to describe someone’s frame of mind as they play: are you taking a sadistic pleasure in your partner’s kicks and gasps, or trying to coax them into a state of genuine euphoria? Are you offering up control to a dominant presence you’re aching to serve, or do you want them to take it from you in a battle of wills? There are as many headspaces as there are fantasies, of course, and every set of play partners has its own dynamic.
One of the core truths of healthy, consensual BDSM is that the exchange of power is more complex than it seems at first glance. Ostensibly one party is in control and the other has surrendered it - but in truth the experience is collaborative, and the submissive partner is usually the real centre of a scene. The deeper into your headspaces you are, the more real your fantastical scenario becomes.
Becci’s character in this week’s film is a perfect example of that collaborative creation of a dynamic and a space. The whole surprise was their idea: they suggested to Stephen that he bring them into date night as a present for his partner, and throughout they're clearly very into the story the three of them are telling. They've chosen a state of mind in which they deeply wants to please them both, and the submission they're exploring is of the eager, adoring sort.
In real-life play that’s one of my favourite headspaces to be in, so it’s exciting to see it depicted on camera. Kelley and Stephen - who are an offscreen couple as well as frequent co-stars - nurture it beautifully, strict and sensuous by turns with a wicked gleam in their eyes at their more sadistic moments. And Becci - who is the true centre of attention here - has been an excellent surprise for them both.
We recently received this comment and it seems like the perfect opportunity to speak about the importance of behind the scenes material in what we do.
The BTS at the end of the main movie is edited highlights, so the full BTS movie still has extra material for keen fans. Performer consent is one of our core values, and especially with edgy or taboo scenes, it's absolutely essential that we make the consent of everyone involved clear and transparent to all viewers. The post-credits highlights serve to show a glimpse of the reality on set to everyone who watches the film, even if they don't watch the separate BTS video.
As well as on the membership site where a lot of auxiliary materials such as interviews and the BTS videos are available, we also publish content on other platforms and streaming sites where we upload scenes as a single file. The post-credit outtakes mean that performer consent is visible even if someone is watching the film on Clips4Sale, ManyVids or PinkLabel, while leaving extra value for members of the subscription site which is the only place viewers can access the full behind the scenes video.
The other reason is to defend our brand against piracy. Of course, we hope that members won't share our films on filesharing sites, because they know that doing this impacts our ability to cover costs and to keep doing what we do. But if our films do end up on a tube site, we want performer consent to be visible there too so that the film doesn't end up being viewed out of context where it might have a very different feel and negatively impact our reputation: particularly if it's uploaded with a new (and less positive and respectful) title, keywords and description, as often happens.
Overall, including this material in the main film ensures that it can't be avoided, and that makes our values clear and transparent to all viewers, regardless of where and how a video is accessed. It also provides us with a small degree of legal protection in the event that someone were to maliciously report our site, or one of our videos, to the authorities.
I hope that clears up our position on behind the scenes material. We've recently updated our mission statement to bring it in line with our values, including our focus on transparency in our working practices: you can read more here.
On school grounds, appearances are everything. For a lot of us our teenage years were the most image-conscious time of our lives; as we age we begin to realise that generally people have more interesting things to look at, but for a few years in the middle there it feels like you’re under constant scrutiny.
Perhaps this is why fantasies involving humiliation and exposure are so enticing, particularly in a school setting. The last thing any of us wanted back then was to be punished in full view of our peers, and a taboo that powerful can follow you into adulthood in a surprisingly intense way.
In this week’s release, Emma Christie is playing the part of a secondary school student forced to endure exactly that: a public reckoning from her P.E. teacher, followed by a sound spanking on her bare bum in front of anyone who might happen by on their way across the school grounds during lunch hour. With her own plimsoll, no less! The forced jog across the playing field afterwards adds insult to injury; there’s no getting away from the fact that all her classmates must have seen her.
As a fantasy scenario it taps into the time when most of us were having our first real sexual awakenings - and now that we’re adults with agency and experience and access to picturesque country gardens with high brick walls, we can explore that time at our leisure.
