I reckon the hottest thing about this week’s release - Beating the Competition, starring Pandora Blake, Rebecca Belacqua and Kelley May - is in the tension and contrast between how Kelley is speaking and what’s actually going on in the room.
Because the thing is, she’s perfectly calm. Her tone is rather dry, in fact; she’s delivering a standard training session to one of her employees, making sure they’re up to scratch for an impending promotion. The way she speaks is measured and informative, like this is just another day on the job for her.
Rebecca, on the other hand, is exposed and squirming, deeply humiliated and blushing bright red on both sets of cheeks. She’s gasping and crying out, struggling with impacts both physical and psychological. This is a brand new experience for her, and one she hadn’t imagined would be quite this intense.
There’s something deeply intriguing about that contrast - particularly given that, by the conceit of the plot, Kelley herself must have had this experience too at some point in the past. Her face sometimes betrays her real feelings; her voice is calm, but from the way she’s looking at her compromised employee you can tell she’s enjoying this as much as we are.
Of course, this isn’t the only spanking in the film - and Kelley’s lesson gets an immediate reprise as power rebalances itself once again! After all, it’s only fair that Rebecca gets a chance to put her new skill into action now she’s officially Pandora’s superior.
As spanking aficionados ourselves, we like to feature a wide range of implements in our films. Bare hand spanking and canes are probably our most-used tools, of course, but we’ve got a bit of everything: paddles, belts, riding crops, floggers, hairbrushes, tawses, rulers and the occasional wooden spoon.
There’s something a bit special about leather, isn’t there? It has a certain smell, a certain texture. New leather is polished and stingy, but with age and use a leather implement becomes softer and more supple and packs more of a thud. The pointed ends of a tawse give a sharp, sudden kind of pain; the click of a belt-buckle before a beating adds a frisson to any encounter.
A razor strop is a flexible leather strap designed for the polishing of blades. They’re a little archaic now in the age of disposable razors, but once upon a time you’d find them hanging on every bedroom wall - in easy, convenient reach. Many of them have a metal loop on the end to make them easier to mount; ours doesn’t, for safety reasons (the bite that would add when spanking would be actively unethical), but it still has the classic polished wooden handle.
There’s a very particular feel to the razor strop. Leather paddles are heavy and rigid; tawses have split tails; belts tend to be much narrower. A strop is broad, flexible and supple, often soft with age and use but no less punishing for it when applied to the backside.
Rebecca Belacqua hadn’t experienced one of these until this week’s shoot - and she seems to take to it pretty quickly. She kicks and squirms beautifully, both performer and character wriggling and wincing under Kelley May’s hand. There’s a lovely moment in the backstage extras where Kelley mentions how much she’d been enjoying her co-star’s reactions; “I kept having to remember that I’m her mother in this scene, I can’t look at her like that!”
I, too, have always loved being beaten with leather - so I particularly took to this scene, and should you share my predilections I’m sure you’ll agree.
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 next shoot is taking place on the 26th and 27th February, and it’s a good ‘un. Pandora Blake will be there to run the show and perform, and will be joined again by Kelley May and Stephen Lewis. We filmed with them in December and still have a few of those films up our sleeve for the coming months. If you haven’t seen the first release from that shoot, you can watch it here.
Along with tops Kelley and Stephen, we are delighted to welcome a new performer to the Dreams of Spanking - Spanky Knight! An enthusiastic bottom, Spanky loves to dress up in stockings and lingerie. Whether it’s with the belt, hairbrush, paddle or the humble hand, he loves to be spanked in all sorts of naughty scenarios.
We’ll be filming in an arty domestic setting over the weekend, and are planning to shoot a mix of F/M and M/M scenes. We’re spoiled for choice as we have a mix of tops, switches and bottoms to play with, so the possibilities are limitless!
This shoot is funded by custom clients. Our customs site has flourished since we launched it in November, and clients ordering bespoke fantasies allows us to collaborate with incredible performers and create the high-quality Dreams of Spanking productions you love.
We would love to bring your fantasy to life during this shoot. The bevy of performers we have at our disposal means there are so many scenes we could create - here are just some of the options:
• F/F (Kelley topping Pandora)
• F/M (Pandora or Kelley topping Spanky)
• M/F (Stephen topping Pandora)
• M/M (Stephen topping Spanky)
We will have a separate camera person so we could do 3 or 4 person group scenes including...
• F/M or M/F with male or female witness
• M/M with female witness
• F/F with male witness
Or any of the many combinations you could think of with the above!
We are so excited to bring this shoot together and for Spanky Knight’s debut on Dreams of Spanking. Visit our customs site to order your custom fantasy now
The day after my second shoot with Lana Moon on the 18th of December (blogpost to come on that), I drove around the M25 to shoot with Princess Kelley May and Stephen Lewis. This shoot has been on the cards for a long time. I've known Stephen since I first started working with Northern Spanking in 2007 but somehow we've never actually worked together that much - I mostly worked with with Paul Kennedy or Michael Stamp at Northern Spanking. I met Stephen at shoots and parties, I don’t remember playing together that much.
I met Kelley when I went to the Texas All-States Spanking Party in 2012. She was co-organising the party and shooting content for her own sites. I enjoyed collaborating with her, and felt a kinship as another young performer-producer creating her own content and learning as she went. We haven't seen much of each other since then, even though she now lives in the UK with Stephen - since having a baby I've not had many opportunities to see people in the scene.
When we got together to shoot in December, it was so great to reconnect. I wished we'd had twice as long to just hang out and chat. We had five scenes planned for the day.
I was feeling good, and encouraged by the success of the day before. I was a little bit sore from my spankings from Dave and Lana, but I didn't have marks so I was ready to go again! Kelley does not currently bottom on video, so I was going to be bottoming for the entire day. I normally shoot with switches and multiple bottoms, so this was the first time I'd done a full shoot as a bottom in years. It was a lot more intense than I remembered, but I really enjoyed it!
This shoot was funded by two wonderful custom video clients who had commissioned films from us. We had three customs to shoot - two with me bottoming to Stephen, and one with me bottoming to Kelley. I was really excited about all three of them. We started with a simple scene with me and Stephen, where I played a stepdaughter who is over her stepfather's knee, getting a traditional style punishment with his leather belt.
Over the knee is not a typical position for the leather belt, but Stephen shortened it enough to not wrap. I actually really liked how it felt. It was really thuddy and made for a great spanking. The scenario also called for some squirmy and embarrassing parts with lots of scolding. Stephen is a wonderful scolder: some of the lines just made me swoon when I edited the film. At one point he told me in a very quiet, serious voice, "You need to have more respect for yourself, don't you?" Whew. That pressed my buttons on so many levels!
The scene included a bit where he takes down my knickers and inspects them for ‘cleanliness’. If he decides that they're too dirty, which of course he does, then I get extra punishment. So that was an added bit of humiliation which was very hot. Humiliation and embarrassment turned out to be a theme for the day; it can be just so delicious when done in the right way and with the right people.
We also captured a hot angle looking back at my feet with my jeans and panties around my ankles as I'm spanked. When I came to edit the video, I felt like that shot worked really well. It reminded me of our film Alex's Point of View, which is shot with camera angles that Alex can see from her position over the knee. I think this sort of “spankee’s point of view” shot is something I'd like to do more of; there’s something very immersive and erotic about it.
At the end of that first scene, we realized my big mistake. I was marked. It may be that I had some underlying bruising from the day before that had been brought out; or maybe the belt was just heavier than I realised. I had some dark red marks and I realized that I'd completely messed up the order of shooting.
In our second film, my scene with Kelley, I played a character who hadn’t been spanked before, and my bare bottom was meant to be in shot at the start. Oops. Big red belt marks were going to ruin the fantasy. I should have shot the F/F film first to make sure I had the unmarked bottom of a virgin spankee.
I felt like a complete idiot. One of the fundamentals of spanking shoot production is getting the scenarios in the right order. Scenes where it's plausible a spankee might already have marks, or where they are covered up at the start, go later in the day. Scenes which start on an bare unmarked bottom go at the start of the day. It’s spanking shoot 101.
There are other factors in how you organise the shoot order too, of course. Such as severity: more mild scenes towards the beginning of the day and the more severe scenes at the end. There’s also location. I don’t like moving the lighting and cameras around too much as it wastes time, so I set up the lights in one room and shoot everything in there, then move the lights to the next room.
I’d been thinking about location and severity, but not marking. I think I'd also got so used to my own bottom's resilience. Spanking still hurts for me, but I don't usually mark very much anymore. I've spoken about this a bit on YouTube if you'd like to know more about bottom resilience and how long it takes spanking marks to go away.
Going back to my bottom (har har), there's been so many times I've wanted marks and not had them, I've got out of the habit of expecting marks. So on this shoot I just hadn't taken it into account.
Kelley suggested. that we put some ice on my bum. However. We completely failed to follow the instructions, and we skipped putting a cloth between my bum and the ice packs. I was lying there on my tummy with the ice on my bottom thinking, “Oh, this is very cold, ice feels quite intense.” But I thought that was normal! I haven't used ice much on my bum before, because believe it or not I've never really needed to.
When Kelley came to take the ice off, she found that my skin looked frozen where the ice pack had been. Even when we warmed my bum up, there were big red puffy welts visible. I'd basically given myself ice burn really high on my bum - it looked nothing like spanking marks. In our efforts to fix my mix up, I now had even worse marks than before!
We were both running around like headless chickens with no clue what to do. Eventually we calmed down, had a cup of tea and decided that the answer was bum make up. I’ve never used makeup to make spanking marks seem more intense, but I have used it before to cover up bruises that would have been out of character for a scene.
Kelley put some foundation and concealer on my bottom to cover up the ice welts, and we rejigged the shots for the second film so that we could disguise the fact that my bottom was marked. The constraint of not being able to show the bare bottom before the spanking forced us to be a bit more creative. I got some close-ups of my feet and face instead, which actually worked really well. The client was very happy with his film - if he noticed that the bum isn't shown before the paddling begins, he didn't mention it. So I think we got away with it!
I played a top executive in a big company. I’m arrogant and confident, and I'm in trouble for bad behavior at the company dinner with a big client. I got too drunk and I made a fool of myself, so I get called in by my boss, Kelley. She gives me a reprimand and tells me that as a consequence of my actions, I can't go on the company retreat that weekend which I helped organize. I'm devastated not to be able to go, and when I find out that the men who got drunk with me are being allowed to go, I demand that I get the same treatment as them.
I learn that what they got was a severe paddling on their bare bottoms with their genitals on display. Kelley would prefer not to do that to me, so I'm being banned from the retreat instead. But I think that's completely sexist, and I demand to receive the full punishment.
So that’s what I get: I have to strip the lower half of my body and fetch the paddle, shuffling across the floor in my high heels with my work trousers stretched around my ankles.
I wanted to use a big wooden paddle so it would look really severe. Kelley showed me her large wooden paddles: one with holes which was quite light, one without holes in which was kind of medium, and another which was really heavy. So of course, Little Mx Masochist here wanted the heavy one. I mean, put yourself in my position. When was the last time I got spanked? I'm a parent, I never get a chance to play these days. This might be my last opportunity to get a serious spanking for a year - I wanted to make the most of it!
So I signed up to take the heaviest of the paddles because I am apparently a glutton for punishment. Oh my God, it hurt. Kelley was barely swinging it and it was so heavy I felt like it was going to slam me into the wall. The breath was completely knocked out of me. It was a real struggle to take, but luckily, the scenario required me to break position and cry, so I was able to let my natural reactions show through. I think I would have really found very difficult to be stoic with that paddle. Oh, and yes, it was completely hot. It's so fun subbing to Kelley. More of this, please!
Finally, we did our third custom a romantic and ritualistic domestic discipline scenario with a husband who spanks his wife. It included the very hot detail of Stephen reading a chapter of his book while I'm in the corner between punishments, and me listening to him turn the pages while he ignores me, wondering when he's going to finish his chapter and spank me again. We recorded some voiceover of Stephen's and my thought processes while I'm in the corner. It turned out so well that I can't wait to share it.
The punishment was very simple - an over the knee wooden hairbrush spanking. First over my dress, then my slip, then over my see-through lacy pink panties and finally on the bare bottom.
If I tell you that this was the first spanking scene in ages where I actually had to have a wank while I was editing it, you'll understand how hot this was. I was pretty bruised already, and there's something very horny for me in seeing the slip lifted and watching the hairbrush be mercilessly applied to my already bruised bottom. I particularly liked the part where I reach back my hand and end up having my wrists pinned behind my back while Stephen gives me a very hard and fast spanking with the hairbrush. It was so hot to experience, and it was so hot to watch. I think you’re going to love it.
At the end there’s some lovely aftercare. The scene was such a loving and affectionate dominance and submission dynamic that Kelley quipped, "I don't mind that you've basically stolen my life". Since she actually is Stephen's wife, we talked about her bottoming in this scene, but she’s still thinking about whether she wants to be spanked on camera at all, even with Stephen. Still, I was flattered that she’d consider it! I would be completely tickled pink if Dreams of Spanking were the company that she deemed worthy of coming out of retirement to take a spanking for.
After the customs were wrapped, Kelley and I shot a couple of scenes for our platforms - one for Dreams of Spanking and one for Kelley's Clips4Sale and OnlyFans. It turns out we have a mutual interest in sexual punishment, embarrassment, humiliation and anal play, so decided to shoot two different explorations of this theme. This sort of sexual play is something that I'm only comfortable doing on camera with people I trust and like a lot, and Kelley absolutely fits into this category. And wow, those scenes were hot. I feel so lucky to have been able to do this play as part of my “work”; I found it enormously satisfying and very arousing.
The first scenario was Kelley's fantasy. She plays the matron in a girls boarding school, and I'm a school girl who's caught masturbating in her dorm room. In this extremely kinky boarding school, the rule is that if you are caught with your fingers in your knickers, then you have to receive a spanking and anal punishment. So Matron takes me over the knee in my school uniform, stuffs my creamy knickers in my mouth, and she violates my bottom with the toys kept especially in my nightstand for the purpose. Wow. It’s a testament to Kelley’s skill that she made me come just from playing with my butt - in fact, I ended up squirting all over her lap, so that was completely gorgeous. By the end of that scene, I was kind of mush. But we did it all over again for Dreams of Spanking.
I've had a fantasy for a long time of a Mummy/boy scenario where I'm being punished and dominated in a way that challenges gender stereotypes. I’m in boy mode, and she tells me “Oh you think you're such a tough boy? You're my little boy. Boys can cry, and I'm going to give you something to cry about.” It’s about challenging the tough guy identity and disrupting masculinity by subjecting me to very humiliating - and very erotic - degradation.
My initial fantasy was a strap-on scene, with me thinking “I’m a man, so I don’t get penetrated”, but then I’m shown my place and pegged by Mummy. Kelley said she didn't really wear strap-ons, but that we could do it with toys.
My appetite for punishment got me into trouble again: I brought my largest dildos with me for this scene. Well, you only live once. I was already warmed up from the matron scene, so I thought, let’s go for it.
I played Kelley’s butch boyfriend who gets into trouble for ignoring her and being rude and disrespectful. She dominated me with spanking and anal punishment, which included opening me up and stretching out my asshold with an anal dilator, and then fucking me with my biggest dildo. It was about her showing me that I don’t have the right to act like an entitled dickhead: I’m not a big guy, I’m her helpless little horny butt slut who loves being fucked. And boy, do I love it. She made me come again, and the whole experience was incredibly horny.
After that I really was mush. I wished I could have stayed for a couple of hours just cuddling and enjoying the afterglow, but I had to pack up and get home.
It was a whirlwind of a day, doing some really self-expressive, kinky stuff on film with two people who I've been meaning to shoot with for Dreams of Spanking for a very long time. I hope we'll get the chance for Round Two at some point this year, and I'm thrilled to have these scenes to share with you.
I urge you to go to Kelley's Clips4Sale and keep an eye out for the matron boarding school scene that we shot together, because I think that's going to be well worth watching.
I came home feeling bruised and spaced out after two long days of shooting and spanking. Luckily, between our wonderful childcare provider who is themself kinky, and my partner, I was able to get the aftercare I needed without neglecting the kiddo. I was glowing from that day for the whole of the Christmas break, and felt very grateful to be able to have these wonderful experiences in the course of my work.
Thank you, Kelley and Stephen: both consummate spanking professionals and wonderful people. I hope we get the opportunity for many more future collaborations.
