She’s never getting married.

There’s always been a rather Sapphic edge to the dynamic between a lady of noble birth and her slightly less privileged companions. This is particularly true in Victorian and early 20th century settings, where two unattached women might find themselves alone together for extended periods of time and bound by convention not to form real bonds with either the servants or the menfolk. In a world where emotive expression is not encouraged and intimacy is confined to closed doors and dark corners, human beings look for connection. Plus, you know...that power dynamic is hot as hell.

Which is precisely the conclusion reached by Miss Bower, the titular Lady’s Companion played by Rosie in this week’s release.

She mostly took the job out of necessity, we suspect; she needed to find a husband, which would be easier in the company of Lady Pandora than from her own reduced circumstances, and she needed to support herself in the meantime, which the house and wage on offer would enable her to do. And if her new mistress’s idea of discipline seems a little draconian...well, it’s a small price to pay.

Once she’s been there a while, though, she makes a startling discovery. There’s much more to learn from this rich widow than simply etiquette and connections - Coleridge and his “woman wailing for her demon-lover” give Miss Bower quite a start - and as for the discipline, well, it turns out there’s more to like about that than she could ever have imagined.

There’s a fun moment in the backstage footage where Rosie remarks that her character is clearly never going to marry - the two of them will be quite happy together for a long time yet, she suspects. I can’t say I can blame her.

Sixty long, hard seconds

The warmup is a vitally important part of the spanking process. When your skin is properly warmed up, blood rushes to the area in question and the main event hurts a little less - meaning you can go for longer and take more of a thrashing. A good warmup also helps both the spanker and the spankee figure out where they’re at that day and calibrate accordingly, especially if they’ve not played together much or it’s been a while.

In this week’s film, though, Blake and Sarah forgo the warming-up process entirely in favour of a particularly harsh cold paddling for one full, unrelenting minute. It’s an extremely hot scene, partly because skipping the warmup is usually a bad idea; this is a punishment, after all, and Sarah isn’t doing anything to make it any easier.

The lack of a good warmup isn’t the only thing adding a little extra frisson to this spanking, though. The timer itself gives a very different feel than the more usual set number of strokes: till that alarm goes off Sarah won’t be slowing down or letting up, and Blake won’t have a chance to breathe between impacts and brace for the next one. It’s sixty full seconds in the heart of the storm, taking it over and over again.

The paddling was just as intense for Blake as a performer - there was no off-screen warmup before it was filmed, and those timed minutes were very real. It worked out because it was a well-negotiated scene, and because Blake and Sarah have been working together for a long time; there’s enough trust and understanding there for them to push the boundaries a little.

There’s a lot of love about this scene, and we’re looking forward to hearing from you all about it - and we’re also pretty sure Blake’s learned their lesson about staying up too late playing on their laptop!

Introducing the X tag



I spoke recently about the names that I use on Dreams. 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 or he/him, as opposed to being Pandora and using she/her pronouns when performing as a woman. 

The fact is, this is the case for many of our performers. We strive to welcome a cast of diverse performers, and this includes gender identities. Many of our performers are non-binary, and sometimes their role in a scene will be as "they" rather than "he" or "she". It's high time we made that visible.

When a performer is non-binary and presenting as such in the scene (whether that's in their pronouns, their character is non-binary or they are playing as themself), we will use the tag X to denote this. Where a performer is non-binary and the character they are playing is gendered F or M, the tags will include this gender along with the X tag

This means that when you're searching the site you can find the scenes that you enjoy, while respecting and reflecting the gender identities of our performers. You can find the orientation tags on our keywords page to browse the options.
