February has brought the first Dreams of Spanking shoot of 2021. We take the safety and security of our cast and crew seriously, and will be continously reviewing our COVID safety policy in line with government restrictions and the changing landscape of the pandemic. The shoot went off without a hitch (ish), and we can't wait to share the results for you. To whet your appetite, here are some of the scenes we released in February.
Spanked at School, Spanked at Home // audio story // Pandora Blake - Head Girl Pandora Blake returns with another school spanking story, but this time she’s not the one doling out the punishment - it’s Mother’s turn tonight!
Who Broke It? // M/FFF film // Xena, Anastasia, Sha Luciana, Pharaoh - Xena, Sha Luciana and Anastasia have caused trouble on holiday - so it’s Pharaoh’s job to take each girl in hand and give them a firm spanking.
Tight Skirt Tease and Grind // Solo F Film // Pandora Blake - Pandora Blake can hardly contain her horniness as she admires her curvy figure in her brand new tight pencil skirt. How can she get herself off without getting undressed?

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.
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
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.
