As a studio, we’ve never shied away from telling intense stories or exploring taboo fantasies. Parent/child pairings are a popular spanking fantasy dynamic, and they’re pretty common in our films; we’ve done a lot of shoots featuring wayward teenagers being set straight by their strict, traditional families.
There’s something a little special about this week’s addition to that cannon, though. The co-parenting couple played by Stephen Lewis and Kelley May in I’m Sorry We Let It Get To This aren’t distant or harsh, and they don’t seem to do this often or resort to spanking for every little infraction. Rather, the belting they give to Richard McLean is something of a last resort for them - and they’re both juxtaposingly loving and gentle as it’s administered, talking him through it stroke by stroke and reminding him that this is all for his own good.
In a way, the overall effect of this scene is actually darker than some of our shoutier and stricter fictional families. It stirs up something almost primal within the viewer; it’s uncanny-valley-close to the way a real loving parent might speak to a teenager they were concerned for. And of course that’s exactly what makes it so hot - they’re doing this for him, after all. This spanking is entirely for his own benefit, and they’re getting nothing out of it themselves. It hurts them to see him in pain, in fact. They’re sorry it came to this.
