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!
