It’s two for the price of one this week with Willow’s repeated misdemeanours (her knickers may be regulation, but her eyeshadow
certainly isn’t) seeing her hauled in front of the mortarboarded Headmistress for the umpteenth time. So far, so spanking-shoot - but just this once there’s an unexpected little twist...
Prefect Blake in this scene embodies a curiosity that a lot of us can identify with. I think many spanking fans had the “I wonder what that feels like” phase; mostly not from counting down the strokes administered to our fellow pupils, I suppose, but at least from watching illicit late-night movies with the volume turned down imperceptibly low on the bedroom TV.
The bit that most echoed my own life, though, was the ending: once she’s alone in the office Pandora smirks to the camera, satisfied and excited and relieved. She pulls down her trousers to inspect her marks, grins when she sees how red she is, hopes she’s left with a few lasting welts. I remember that feeling - the discovery and the excitement, the sense of a new desire finding its home inside me. For me it was a train platform in Stretham rather than the Head’s office, but it’s a moment I will remember for the rest of my life.
Of course, she’s not the only star of this week’s show. The ever-adorable Faerie Willow was a real trooper on set that day, and seeing the welts from her previous caning when she exposes her bottom for this scene is a real highlight. She’s got the ‘wayward teenager’ vibe down pat, doesn’t she? Whether you prefer your spankees reluctant or enthusiastic you’re in for a treat with this one - and as ever, each of Clara’s strikes hits the perfect spot.
