Poetry in motion - animated spanking gifs

It's a comment I've heard before when posting a particularly tantalising photoset: "it looks great, but it should have been a video".  When it comes to spanking, it seems that a lot of people feel that motion is the name of the game. Whether it's the lip-biting swoosh of a cane through the air, the way peachy flesh ripples across a bottom at the moment of impact, or the beautiful scrunchy faces made by the recipient, spanking is a uniquely dynamic activity.

So it's no surprise that spankings work particularly well as animated gifs. AJ has turned her hand to making them recently, and I'm loving the results. I thought you might like to see some of the hot spanking snippets she's been sharing on our Tumblr - and some bonus gifs too big and juicy to fit within Tumblr's filesize guidelines.

How about some of Amelia Jane Rutherford (AKA Ariel Anderssen)'s famous faces?

Ariel can tell this stroke is going to hurt from the moment she feels the taps

 I love Ariel's expressiveness here: that moment when she realises that the next stroke is going to hurt, and her cheerful face scrunches up into a pout of anticipation - followed by a yell as the cane stroke lands right on the crease. I know, I'm too mean.

It's okay, though, because after being so cruel to Ariel I'm about to get my comeuppance - and I love the grin on D's face as he dishes out the same treatment!

The cane for Pandora Blake - right on the crease

One of the nicest things (in my opinion) about my sponsored caning video is the interplay between me and D - including some lovely affectionate, teasing touch. I really like the moments AJ has pulled out and highlighted here.

But spanking itself is arguably the best subject matter for an animated gif. Because they loop endlessly on repeat, they are perfectly suited to the rhythmic rise and fall of an over-the-knee hand spanking...

But my favourite gifs so far are the ones AJ made from Schoolgirl Takedown starring me and Ten Amorette. It's a high-tempo resistance play scene with non-stop struggling, wriggling, wrestling and spanking, and it was almost impossible to screengrab. But with gifs, we aren't limited to a single screen frame - which makes it that much easier to preview all the hot, gutsy girl-on-girl action.

So what do you think - do spanking gifs work for you? What moments would you pick out to enshrine in gif format? Do you like to see impact, facial reaction, anticipation, or an endless rhythmic spanking loop? Please do tell us your thoughts in the comments!

A whistlestop tour of some favourite corporal punishment implements

Maintaining Discipline – our new flirty two-part switch storyline starring Pandora Blake and Mike Pain – is like a Who's Who (or What's What) of corporal punishment instruments. The pair work their way through the slipper to tawse and cane, with a bit of warm-up hand spanking thrown in when they switch roles. Because of this, I thought it'd be a good excuse to take a closer look at some of our favourite implements.

Most blog posts I write for Dreams of Spanking are written from my point of view as an enthusiastic, horny sex blogger, eager to tell you all the ways in which individual scenes float my kinky boat. This time, though, I'm going to pretend to be Amazon – providing recommendations for further viewing depending on which implement you prefer. So grab a membership if you don't have one already, and settle down for some personalised film recommendations...

The slipper

In part one of Maintaining Discipline, new teacher Ms Blake is given instruction in corporal punishment by the friendly headmaster. He wants to make sure she can keep her pupils under control, and what better way than with the stinging whack of the slipper on a bare bottom? The headmaster makes an unexpected offer - and bends over so Pandora can learn to dish it out.

In Maintaining Discipline part 2, though, it's her turn to understand how it feels - a clearly aroused Ms Blake offers up her bottom, and the headmaster shows her just how much corporal punishment can hurt.

If you like the slipper, you might also like: Sent to the Headmistress. Cute delinquent schoolboy David Weston is hauled in front of the stern headmistress, and bends over her desk for a spanking.

You might also like one of my personal favourites. Pandora tells me that it's rare to see male/female switching films in spanking porn, so if you love M/F switch scenes as much as you love the slipper, I bet you'll enjoy The Schoolgirl's Revenge. Grown-up schoolgirl Molly Malone cunningly turns the tables on her old headmaster Sir John Beecroft, in a twisted tale of blackmail and revenge.

The ruler

Wooden rulers are a special kind of implement. While many spanking tools are made specifically for the job, the wooden ruler is something that might be found lying around any classroom or study, and happen to be conveniently to hand when the time comes to dish out punishment. In Maintaining Discipline part 1, Pandora tries out both slow, hard strokes and a quick flurry of six cracks in a row.

If you like the ruler, you might also like: Dana for Senator. Dana Kane's Senatorial campaign starts soon, and her interns Michael Darling and Pandora Blake need to shape up. So Dana makes use of the wooden ruler that lies so temptingly on her desk nearby...

The tawse

Leather straps and tawses have always been a favourite of mine. In Maintaining Discipline part 2, a calm Mike Pain explains to Pandora that the tawse hurts more because of the split in the centre of the leather, before advising her to use it "as hard as she can". It certainly has an impact – ear-splitting cracks followed by tell-tale red stripes that instantly appear on Mike's bottom.

If you like the tawse, you might also like: The Prefect and the Fag. One of my favourite ever Dreams of Spanking films, because it contains two guys who just happen to be the kind of people I'd blush at if I met them in a bar - plus some twisted abuses of power and an intensely hot tawsing at the end.

It's also well worth checking out Alex Reynolds and Paul Kennedy in Playing Truant – a more vicious tawsing on the tender skin at the back of the thighs, in which both performers pull off a spectacular translation of fantasy into reality.

The cane

In case it wasn't obvious, the cane is one of the most popular things on Dreams of Spanking – I'm sure you can guess why. In Maintaining Discipline part 2, part of Pandora Blake's tutorial involves learning how to use the cane. With headmaster Mike Pain bent over the desk, providing calm instructions, she starts first with a thin cane and then onto much harder strokes with a thick one. Which is more painful? I'll let you decide...

If you like the cane, you might also like: There are plenty of scenes to choose from here, and I'm struggling to pick just one or two. What I will say is that if you love the cane, you're in for a real treat, because we've been on a bit of a caning spree recently, as so many amazing people joined in with our sponsored caning protest against the UK porn laws - such as bondage superstar Ariel Anderssen.

And, of course, if you enjoyed watching Pandora cane Mike in Maintaining Discipline part 2, you definitely shouldn't miss Mike Pain's spectacular début thrashing on Dreams of Spanking – Mike's Secret - which might just the hardest caning Pandora has given on film to date.

Bare bottom spanking with a real life couple

What do you get when you put the Dreams of Spanking team in a house with a giant hot tub? Wet spankings! In this week's film David Weston and Talia Lane are let loose on a mountain of bubbles, for a playful, performer-driven switch spanking scene.

Bare bottom spankings with a real life switch couple at Dreams of Spanking

I'm not sure what there's more of in this update – kisses or bottom smacks. Talia and David have such a giggly, loved-up vibe that watching them playing together feels like a realy intimate moment. They're sharing their delight at being able to explore each other's bodies in a luxurious bubble bath, and you almost feel like the camera isn't there.

Bare bottom spankings with a real life switch couple at Dreams of Spanking

I know there are plenty of people who love homemade porn – what's often known as 'amateur porn' although it's often anything but. I can totally see the appeal of this, because while sometimes it's a shorthand for shaky camera work, most frequently it is a signifier of chemistry. Homemade porn is usually made by people who have serious desire for each other and who want to capture that on film.

In this scene, David and Talia's natural playfulness shines through, and it's a glimpse into how this real life couple are in... well... real life. It's something they brought spectacularly to their first video together – in which they played the naughty schoolboy and schoolgirl punished by strict Ms Blake – and this scene takes it to the next level.

I think my favourite bit in 'Bubble Butts' is David's gleeful cry of “more spanks please!” - it sums up perfectly the joy he takes in a good bare bottom spanking, and his excitement at playing on camera with his girlfriend. Perhaps the only thing that tops it is Talia's demand for more kisses.

This film came out in time for Valentine's Day last weekend, so it's a perfect excuse for glorious, unashamed cuteness: and I know of very few porn couples who embody sexy spanking cuteness quite like David and Talia.

5 reasons why Dreams of Spanking is better than 50 Shades of Grey

There's no stopping the freight train that is 50 Shades of Grey. Since the film opened in cinemas this weekend, you can expect a million more articles about it from kinksters and non-kinksters alike dissecting the story, the acting, and above all the consent.

Naturally the book is pretty controversial. It's a fantasy scenario, sure, but as the 50 Shades juggernaut rolled on and more people read articles about how to 'do' BDSM like Christian Grey did, a lot more people started getting worried that, you know, perhaps this weirdly stalky, abusive lead character wasn't the best role model for people just beginning to explore their fantasies.

I've been told I'm wrong on this, so feel free to angrily disagree with me, but as a general rule I'm uncomfortable telling people what they can and can't fantasise about. And while 50 Shades is clearly not the template for a healthy relationship, I'm not going to stand outside the cinema with a placard telling people it's causing them harm. Erika Moen put it brilliantly:

“I have faith in people to understand that the fictional book they're reading is just a trashy two-dimensional fantasy to get their juices flowing and not the blueprints by which to construct their actual relationships.”

But while it's certainly not a template for real-life kink, it's definitely a handy comparator when identifying mistakes, and looking at how we can do real-life kink better. So without further ado, here are five ways in which Dreams of Spanking is a hell of a lot better than That Bloody Book.

1. We're way better at negotiating

There's surely nothing less sexy than Christian Grey's bizarre 'sex contract', with bullet points and legalese obscuring the hotness of the acts he wants to perform. Loads of people have pointed out that the idea of an irreversible, non-negotiable 'contract' is laughable in BDSM, and they're right – no one gets to claim you as their sub 'forever' or hold you to clauses once they've stopped being sexy for you. But on top of that, there are much better ways to negotiate what you want in a scene. Let's see what we've got...

How about this amazing kinky spanking scene starring Caroline Grey and Will Savage? After blagging their way into a fetish club, they realise they haven't a clue what they're doing. With subtle questions, gradual escalation, and some aroused feedback from Caroline, he escalates to a full-on, knickers-down, over the knee paddling. They both have an amazing – all while trying not to let on that this is the first time they've ever done it - and not a contract in sight.

Sweet and sexy first-time kink at Dreams of Spanking

Or perhaps this beautiful bit of negotiation between Nimue Allen and Andrew Shada? The pair are on their first date, and there's clearly a spark that will appeal to romance fans. Andrew's shyness and Nimue's encouraging requests for a spanking are both cute and incredibly relateable. If Nimue can ask her beau for what she wants, so can you.

2. It's all consensual

I mean, this one should really go without saying. But the point I mainly want to make here is that, because Dreams of Spanking fulfils fantasies via roleplay, it has a broad scope to enact darker fantasies in an ethical, consensual way.

Scenes that involve an abuse of power or a particularly severe thrashing are always published with behind the scenes interviews and discussion. 50 Shades doesn't come with a separate interview in which Christian and Ana talk about how his abusive behaviour was just play-acting, and so it's much harder to draw the line between which aspects of a fantasy are hot because you'd never want them to happen for real, and which are things you'd like to do in real life. At Dreams of Spanking, we're able to make that distinction clear.

3. We switch it up

I read a lot of kinky erotica and watch a fair amount of porn, and one of the themes I often think about is the idea of roles. You play Christian Grey, I play Ana, and never the twain shall switch. But while there's certainly a place for strict roles that never waver, I love a bit of switching. Spanking someone who's going to spank you next adds a whole level of trust, as well as a frisson of sexy tension – if you spank them hard, are they going to get their own back? Not to mention a chance for some non-verbal negotiation as you show them exactly how you like it.

In 'Prove your Love' Michael Darling and Pandora Blake do one of the most balanced switch scenes I've ever seen, and in 'Beat the Recession', Nimue Allen and Sebastian Hawley take turns to spank each other on a money-saving celebratory night in. The best part of the second video, in my humble and pervy opinion, is when Nimue smacks both palms flat on Sebastian's beautifully-presented bottom.

4. Our romance is just more... interesting

Guy meets girl, guy wines and dines her, stalks her until she says yes and then they shag: as the premise of pretty much every mainstream romance ever, it's not exactly original. How about guy meets girl, girl gets a birch for Christmas and asks him to test it on her? Or perhaps guy meets girl, girl has hot fantasy about being a mistreated maidservant, and he surprises her on a Saturday morning by dressing up in period costume - and bringing a cane?

There's a time and a place for more traditional romance, of course – although you'll never see the “stalking is sexy” theme on Dreams of Spanking. One of my personal favourite photosets is Tangled With You – a stunning explicit gallery with Pandora and D being so hot and horny for each other it burns into every image. Which brings me neatly onto point five...

5. Our cast has chemistry

A couple of people have told me disdainfully that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson (who play Christian and Ana in the 50 Shades of Grey film adaptation) don't really like each other that much. I don't know if this is true – to be honest I think I'd struggle to spend months working with someone I didn't like, so I doubt it. On the other hand, perhaps they've been put under so much pressure to capture a 'spark' that they're sick of the sight of each other by now. Either way, there's an easy way to get around the 'chemistry' issue when you're shooting porn: find people who really fancy each other, and ask them what they really want to do.

Dreams of Spanking scenes and ideas come from all manner of places, but the most vital is the performer fantasy element. When the people acting in a scene can help shape it with their own kinks and desires, what comes through is inevitably going to be natural and hot.

A giggly pleasurable caning for Pandora Blake at Dreams of Spanking

A beautiful example of this is Pandora's giggly caning at the hands of Paul Kennedy (who, by the way, I have a gigantic crush on). Not only is it something she's specifically requested, but it's so clear from her sexy sighs and excited giggles that Paul's catering to a genuine and heartfelt desire. Likewise with the gorgeous double caning that she begs from Nimue Allen and Thomas Cameron – you can watch the bliss suffuse her face as she counts out the strokes with audible pleasure, and moans in delight when she gets a bottom rub in between whacks.

What's more, Dreams of Spanking shoots porn performer couples like David Weston and Talia Lane, who are together in real life as well as on camera. In scenes like our latest Valentine's Day spanking special David and Talia just can't hide their natural flirty dynamic. And why would we want them to?

In case you'd reached the end of this and hadn't realised, every single link above goes to a different Dreams of Spanking scene. If you watched each scene, that'd still be less than 5% of what's available on the entire site. So if you're eschewing the cinema this weekend, grab yourself a subscription and have a rummage through our archive. All our films are downloadable, so once you've got them they're yours to keep forever, and watch whenever you like!

A hand spanking proves no match for young love

Can you tell that Talia Lane and David Weston are a couple in real life? I think it's hard not to, because the whole of their first film together is infused with a close flirtation and a crackling chemistry, which makes their school romance all the more real, and all the more intense.

David Weston and Talia Lane punished together with an over the knee hand spanking by Pandora Blake

I get a bit nostalgic about these school moments – when there was a guy I fancied so much I couldn't stop thinking about him in class. A guy who I just needed to touch me. Those stolen moments – kisses and gropes when teachers weren't looking ... sigh.

Talia and David play a couple just like this – horny students with ties askew, shirts untucked, and eyes only for each other. As is to be expected when you're young and hot for someone, they fondle and kiss behind the bike sheds for so long that they miss the start of lessons.

They hardly care, of course – they're far too wrapped up in their own teenage world of giggles and snogs. But this is Dreams of Spanking, after all, so from the moment their lips touch we know they're going to get caught by a strict teacher. Enter Pandora...

David Weston and Talia Lane punished together with an over the knee hand spanking by Pandora Blake David Weston and Talia Lane punished together with an over the knee hand spanking by Pandora Blake

Pandora (aka the stern Ms Blake) is formidable in this scene, but then she has to be to keep the pair in line. Talia and David joke around even as Ms Blake explains that they're in for a punishment more severe than the usual detention or lines.

They can't quite bring themselves to believe that she'll put them over her knee for a hand spanking, and as a result their insouciance just gets them into deeper trouble.

Everyone remembers those kids at school who – no matter how stern the teacher – just would not behave. Talia and David in this scene are exactly like that - holding hands and messing around and making exactly the kind of exasperating retorts that teenagers seem to think are oh-so-funny. They play that casual 'you can't touch me' attitude to perfection - to the point where I, as a bit of a meanie, couldn't wait for Pandora to dish out the spanking just to show them she means business.

When she does, Talia's shock and outrage is amazing.

David Weston and Talia Lane punished together with an over the knee hand spanking by Pandora Blake

This is Talia's first ever spanking scene - in fact, she says in her interview that it's her first ever proper spanking. David's starred in a few Dreams of Spanking videos before (I particularly enjoyed David's Strict Governess) and he was keen to share the experience with her, and watch her discover why he loves spanking so much.

Taking the behind-the-scenes connection together with the scenario, it's a gorgeous shared moment. I loved seeing the dynamic between the couple as they stay strong against the teacher determined to punish them. Keep watching after the credits for more out-takes, including Talia's infectious giggles - and her genuine reactions to her first ever punishment spanking.

That David and Talia are a real couple serves to highlight one of the best things about this type of joint scene. When two lovers or close friends are punished together, there's an added dynamic: the support and sympathy between the two spankees. There's an amazing example of it in Punishment by Proxy, too, in which Pandora and Jimmy are forced – against their wishes – to actually punish each other.

As David and Talia comfort each other you can see that what started as humiliation is actually making them stronger. Initially David is reluctant to pull down his pants in front of his young girlfriend, but by the end the pair are united in solidarity against their teacher.

Facing the wall and baring their bright red bottoms after their spanking, they exchange shy, loving smiles. You know, I'm not sure they've entirely learned their lesson. Some things are just worth doing, no matter what the punishment.

New performers for November 2014

A week after last year's big location shoot, Nimue Allen and I are back on location in another picturesque cottage. This one is bigger, more modern and - crucially - warmer than the last one, but just as isolated in an unpopulated bit of the English countryside. Peace and quiet is one of the most important things when it comes to shooting spanking porn. After all, we wouldn't want our scenes to be disrupted by noisy neighbours - and we wouldn't want anyone to find out what we were up to.

The cottage comes with a friendly cat - and best of all, a hot tub!

Pandora Blake and the hot tub!

We're actually here for a week, although only two of those days will be shooting for Dreams of Spanking. We've also spent a day shooting for Nimue's World, and three days shooting for an exciting new porn project which is Nimue's and my new brainchild. There have been some teasers on Twitter already, but for now I'll just say that it's kinky, queer, filthy and absolutely, explicitly hardcore. We'll be releasing more details in due course, so watch this space!

This evening we were joined by our performers for the next two days - one day for the new project, and one for Dreams of Spanking. Those performers are David Weston and his real-life girlfriend, Talia Lane.

Talia Lane

Talia Lane

Talia is a gorgeous, geeky and very kinky young lady, who loves spanking (among an entertaining assortment of other fetishes). She's David's top, but she also switches, and is keen to have a go at shooting spanking video in both roles. I met her for the first time a couple of months ago over coffee. We'll be shooting a mixture of F/M, F/F and male/female switch scenes, with both David and Talia playing spanker and spankee at different times.

The pair brought plenty of scene ideas to the table, and between us we came up with some seriously hot scenarios. One of them in particular is incredibly dark and wrong - and you have David and Talia to thank for that! I love shooting real couples - it's such a privilege to be able to capture the genuine kinky chemistry between lovers on camera.

David Weston and Talia Lane

David and Talia arrived at the cottage this evening, and after dinner we've spent a relaxed evening sitting on the sofa on our laptops - it's nice to have people in the house who also consider this perfectly normal behaviour, rather than thinking me and Nimue are terribly antisocial...

David Weston, Talia Lane, Pandora Blake and Nimue Allen

After David and Talia, we have another new performer arriving - another male switch. Mike Pain is an experienced scene player as both spanker and spankee. He's known for his collection of naughty phone booth cards, and I met him - and was spanked by him - shooting a comedy spanking scene for the TV show Sexorama a few years ago.

Mike Pain

Mike contacted me on Fetlife to offer his bottom, and had some great suggestions for scenes. I'm looking forward to seeing him again, and to spanking him - and being spanked in return. Since it will be the last shoot day of the week, I won't have to worry about marks, so I'm very much looking forward to enjoying some suitably climactic spankings, strappings and canings!

David's Strict Governess - Behind the Scenes with David Weston and Pandora Blake

David's Strict Governess: Behind the scenes

Performers: Pandora Blake, David Weston

An in-depth look at the process of shooting David's first spanking video. David muses on how surreal it is to finally be on a spanking set after watching so many films online. He and Pandora negotiate the scenario - and Pandora takes rather a lot of enjoyment in having him over her knee! David: "I think I can honestly say this is the first time it's taken two people to adjust my underwear." Plus some bustle-wiggling as Pandora plays with her petticoats... Pandora briefs David and tells him he can cut any time. During the scene she stops regularly to check in on him, and David reveals that the hardest thing is trying not to smile!

I loved putting together my Victorian governess costume for this scene - especially improvising a bustle with a net petticoat under my skirt. I love that the Victorians loved bums so much that they invented the bustle to make them look bigger!

This behind the scenes video is worth watching if you're interested in how someone reacts to shooting their first ever spanking scene on film - and how Nimue and I help David through it. My favourite moment in this is at 7:30, when David confesses he's enjoying the spanking so much it's an effort to keep a straight face...

Flirting, pleasure and spanking over cane marks

When I first got into BDSM I imagined terrifying Doms who would call me awful names and beat me to within an inch of crying. As I got more involved, I was touched and turned on in equal measure watching couples perform aftercare – that post-play winding down where you really see the care they have for each other.

Our recent spanking film with Nimue Allen and David Weston captures all the tenderness and affection of aftercare. As Nimue rubs lotion on his throbbing cane marks, and caresses his gorgeous bum, David wriggles and luxuriates in the sensation of being pampered.

I also love the fact that this scene includes lots of giggling. Having admired (read: fancied) David since his first appearances on Dreams of Spanking ('David's Strict Governess' is a particular favourite) it's lovely to see a scene that shows a more playful side to his personality. Nimue and David have a fantastic chemistry – she flirts and teases him, marvelling at how she can feel the cane marks on his bottom. And he pushes his bum up to meet her firm hand, grinning with pleasure.

When Pandora sent me the video, she explained that David was keen to do a playful scene after the other more serious punishments. When he came to the last scene of the day he'd just shot 'The Clone's Training', a dark and intense sci-fi drama. Knowing that, this whole aftercare scene feels very real - the giggles a well-deserved release after the tension of taking his first ever cold caning, and the rubs and soothing touch a relaxing reward at the end of a hard day.

As David gets the giggles Nimue spanks him harder, laughing along with him and both enjoying the pleasure of a playful spanking.

I challenge you to watch it and not fall in love with them a little bit. There's so much candid tenderness in this film that it made me yearn for someone to do that to me.

Sci-fi porn and sexy storytelling

Storytelling is sexy. Whether it's written, audio, or dramatised on screen, storytelling can make the difference between something that's hot while you're watching it, and something that stays with you for a long time afterwards.

When I write the blogs for Dreams of Spanking, it's always important to pick the right key phrases so that people can find scenes during search. Judicial caning, hand spanking, over the knee, etc – it means that everyone knows what they'll get if they click through, and also serves to get people horny. If you're anything like me then the phrase 'over the knee' probably conjures instant hot mental images, so if a scene involves that kind of punishment I'll make sure to be clear about it.

But the problem with this kind of directness is that there are lots of other more nuanced things that might be particularly erotic, but that aren't as instantly recognisable. Let's face it – lots of people search for 'six strokes of the cane' but fewer people search for 'depersonalised punishment' or 'endurance punishment'. That's where storytelling comes in.

The Clone's Training - sci-fi porn featuring judicial caning at Dreams of Spanking

Depersonalised punishment is a really interesting thing to explore – the idea that someone is receiving a beating because they have to rather than because they specifically deserve it. Rituals and ceremonies are both great vehicles for this: the punishment can be impersonal because it's not an individual need but part of a greater story.

Our new film, The Clone's Training, is sci-fi porn that fully explores this concept. Clone number eight – played by the gorgeous David Weston – is being drilled in the nuance and detail of the behaviour of his progenitor, the Crown Prince. Identical genetically, the clone and the Crown Prince are impossible to tell apart just by looking. Birthmarks and scars have all been faithfully reproduced, and the clone now needs to perfect his behaviour so he can infiltrate the royal family and 'become' the prince.

Instructor Pandora Blake gives firm and strict directions: stride purposefully, keep your chin up, hand behind your back. Every movement, in other words, must match the Prince's own gestures. And, of course, he must also be marked so that any blemish on his body matches exactly the ones on the Crown Prince.

A punch to the hip should replicate a bruise the Prince sustained, but to truly fool the medical scanners, clone number eight will have to have a six stroke judicial caning, just as the military Prince received only the day before...

The Clone's Training - sci-fi porn featuring judicial caning at Dreams of Spanking

You don't often see sci-fi porn, probably because most people associate it with either huge budgets or crap special effects. But there's a wealth of hot potential in science fiction, and you don't need CGI to make the concept work. Dystopic worlds in which individuals must behave a certain way. 1984-style future societies where citizens unquestioningly obey. And, of course, the deliciously sexy possibilities of armies of identical human-looking robots (I'm looking at you, Battlestar Galactica, with your sexy Cylons) and cloning technology.

This film plays on the clone scenario to dish out an incredibly clinical, depersonalised punishment. While many will watch this because they just love caning stories, others will be aroused by the impersonal nature of the punishment itself. The medical officer and instructor, played by Pandora, is concerned only with shaping clone number eight into as close a copy of the Prince as possible. As a consequence, when she strikes him with the cane it's not in anger or lust, but with a calculated necessity. And when he bends over to receive the strokes it's not because he feels he deserves them, it's because he is so used to obedience that it doesn't occur to him to question why he has to go through this. He just knows he must fulfil his destiny.

When you've watched The Clone's Training, if you're after more porn with amazing stories, it's well worth exploring Dreams of Spanking's 'sci-fi and fantasy' tag. The Royal Wedding is an audio story about a medieval princess, featuring an amazing public flogging which – again – is an impersonal ritual, but has more significance when told from the perspective of the princess who endures it. I also really like 'Psychic Weapon C' – another sci-fi porn story, but here the pain is used as a means to extract information. It's not quite as clinical, because the victim is actively fighting against the beating, but the fact that it's administered by henchmen makes it – in my opinion – an awesome example of pain being dished out as a matter of unflinching necessity.

So that's why storytelling is sexy – it's not just about a simple act, it's about the before and after, the build up and the tension. I could watch any scene in which a beautiful guy gets six of the best, and be delighted to have seen it, but the story turns it into something I think about for a long time. Not least because I can't help imagining exactly what happened to clones one through seven...
