One of our favourite things to do here is bring our performers’ dreams and desires to life. We’ve published a lot of content that is based on and directed by the fantasies of the people in it; it’s part of why we started this venture in the first place!
This week’s feature gave us an opportunity to do just that for Richard McLean. It was shot as part of a whole day’s worth of filming, and Richard was kept pink and glowing the whole time - rounding it off with his delicious Good Boy Spanking, released a few weeks ago. That’s the delicious thing about this video: the knowledge that the performer was going through the same thing as his character, all day long.
Of course, outside of fantasy-land there are a few other things to keep in mind - most importantly the happiness and comfort of the people who star in our films. The behind-the-scenes film released alongside Kept Pink All Day is a great example of what this looks like in action: there were a few moments during filming where Richard started to find his spankings difficult to take, and the rest of the cast (plus Pandora, of course!) had the opportunity to work together on finding a way to keep everyone enjoying themselves. It’s refreshing not only to hear Richard share how he feels like his spanking fetish and his pain threshold sometimes contradict each other, but also the way that Kelley and Pandora validate him and reassure him about that.
Kept Pink is a wonderful blend of erotic spanking fantasy and touching real-life compassion, and a perfect opportunity to enjoy Richard’s beautifully punished bum over and over again.
This week’s scene is a beautifully kinky exploration of parental punishment, something we’ve enjoyed here at Dreams a few times lately. It’s taboo, it’s edgy, and it’s a deeply sensitive topic - so this seems like a good time to look at some of the benefits of our commitment to consensual production.
A lot of our scenes involve themes of reluctance and coercion. Whether it’s Lana Moon realising she’s in over her head with her boss, Richard McLean being forced to pull his trousers down for an angry headmistress or Pandora Blake being soundly thrashed by her disappointed father, many of our spanked and punished submissives are playing a part in which they’re less than thrilled about what’s being doled out. We love to explore the emotional side of the punishments we depict: the anxiety of waiting outside assembly knowing you’re about to be caned in front of the whole school, or the dread of coming home knowing your parents have already been phoned to talk about your misdeeds.
Of course, behind the camera there’s a very different story unfolding. All of our performers are themselves spanking fans - Pandora’s often written here about their private escapades, and some of our most successful scenes have starred real life couples who enjoy these dynamics personally as well as professionally. When we shoot with couples who don’t know each other so well, we’re even more careful to take as much time as our performers need to develop trust and establish boundaries.
This makes our porn more ethical, of course, but it also makes it hotter. When you trust the person you're submitting to, your pain threshold rises; you can sink more deeply into a headspace, explore more taboo aspects of the dynamic, take more of a beating from their hand or cane or belt. The backstage content released alongside this week’s new scene is a great example of that.
Pandora directs almost all the content we produce here, which is a lovely metaphor for the ways in which it’s actually the submissive partner who calls a lot of the shots. While filming Waiting At Home With The Belt they gave David Oak plenty of feedback, both about his performance and his punishment. This gave him the freedom to lean into his part - he knew they’d call “cut!” if they needed to, knew he could trust them to enforce their boundaries well.
And as a result, Pandora ended up asking David to beat them a little harder and dole out their fictional punishment a little more fiercely. Because consent, you see, is hot as hell.
We release a lot of behind the scenes content here at Dreams, but one thing we don’t often get to see is our performers simply being themselves. Most of the time, when the camera’s on a performer is in one of two modes: either they’re inhabiting the role they’ve taken on for the shoot, or they’ve got their ‘work head’ on as they figure out practicalities and navigate comfort zones.
This week’s film is a lovely chance to see a side of Pandora that doesn’t often make it into our content, and to meet Richard in a mode other than the ones he’s played in our recent releases. There’s a chatty, conversational tone throughout this spanking, and somehow that makes it all the hotter. The two performers have had a long day to get comfortable with each other, and now they’re having a chance to explore their likes and dislikes in a more relaxed, intimate setting.
This is a fun, sexy little film, and if you’re anything like me you’ll be rather envious of Richard by the end - the chance to bottom for Pandora in their chilled out nurturing top mode isn’t one I’d pass up in a hurry.
There are any number of ways to play a character in a spanking porn film. Bottoms can be bratty and sarcastic, eager and subservient, reluctant, excited, curious; tops can be loving and parental, or distant and clinical, or fierce and strict. Or, as in the case of David Oak in this week’s film, they can turn the perv factor up to eleven as they loom over the spankee at their mercy.
David - who is in reality of course extremely lovely! - does an amazing job in this role, as he first inspects Pandora’s handiwork and then throws her over her bed to show her some consequences. There’s something rather oily about the character he’s playing, but Pandora is not dissuaded - though some of her eagerness does dissipate a little once the spanking starts to get more difficult than she’d anticipated.
PS - if you enjoyed this one, make sure you check out its prequels Equestrian Pleasures and Victorian Strumpet - this has been a fantastically pervy spanking trilogy and we’ve loved seeing what a good reception it’s received!
This week brings the sequel and conclusion to our recent release A Spanking at School Means a Spanking at Home starring Kelley May and Richard McLean, and it certainly lives up to its title! Reluctant spanked schoolboy Richard has barely had a chance to catch his breath after the Headmistress’s ministrations when his father gets wind of the misdemeanour - he won’t bunk off Double Maths again in a hurry, that’s for sure.
Stephen Lewis is determined to present a united front with his son’s school, and so Richard ends up bent over and exposed for the second time in one day. This time he does at least have someone on his side: Pandora Blake makes a wonderfully supportive sister, coaching him through the sting of the slipper. She’s not keen to take his place, mind you...
Pandora has a chance to be just as supportive behind the scenes too, as this week’s backstage content gives us a glance into how we make sure everyone’s boundaries remain intact and nobody’s doing anything that isn’t working for them.
Every now and again, I see someone who has a particular gleam in their eye that just says ‘I will absolutely fuck you up’. It’s the twinkle of calm, quiet sadism; nothing big or flashy, just an indefinable glint that tells you you’re in for a real thrashing. Clara Hewitt, who plays the mother in this week’s new release, has that look.
She is also a consummate professional - at one point she delivers six cane strokes and leaves behind just three evenly-spaced stripes, which must take legendary aim when using an implement that moves fast enough to make what is technically a very small sonic boom (or so I’ve been told). One of our goals here at Dreams is to showcase some of the ways spanking porn can also be art, and goddamn but a spanking like that is certainly an art form.
Of course, she wasn’t the only professional on set. This was my first time watching either of Pandora’s co-stars in action, and I was enchanted by Faerie Willow - there’s a sort of glow to her that is immediately compelling. She looks incredible both in and out of her Daisy-Duke-style outfit, and her easy, relaxed manner somehow makes everything she does on screen seem perfectly natural.
There’s a lot to love about this scene, and I think Pandora has a blogpost in the works somewhere about why it was such an extra-special one for them and their cast and crew. It’s got a little bit of everything that Dreams of Spanking stands for: intimacy, sex appeal, humour, taboo. If you haven’t seen it yet, you absolutely won’t want to miss out.
(PS - you know I love to call out our most amusing adlibbed lines in these blog posts, because nothing makes a joke funnier like hanging a flag on it. This week’s entry: “Not while you’re eating a cheese sandwich”. That would...that would be a bit weird, yeah.)
I think I might be a little bit in love with Miss Kelley May. I’d not come across her till she filmed with us for some recent releases, and as a top she has a wicked gleam in her eyes that I find devastatingly compelling.
We do not get the impression, however, that the same is true for humiliated schoolboy Richard McLean in this week’s feature. Very often in our scenes there’s a sense that the character being spanked is secretly having the time of their life, or at least satisfying a long-held curiosity - not so this week, as our recalcitrant student hesitates before bending over the Headmistress’s lap and flinches under her firm, sharp strokes. Fans of reluctant spankings are in for a treat!
As ever, our performers are just playing a part when they seem like they’d rather be anywhere but there. There’s a short behind-the-scenes clip at the end of this one in which Richard discusses how he made sure he was staying within his comfort area even as things became distinctly uncomfortable in his, er, area, and there’s some more backstage content on the way with Part Two in a few weeks time.
This week’s film is as topical as the lotions Lana Moon has probably been massaging into her patients’ particulars. When she realises that a particularly attractive patient of hers has been feeling a little lonely as a result of all the restrictions on visiting people in hospital, she decides to act the Good Samaritan and cheer them up a little - with some help from the pharmacy supply cupboard, of course! Sadly her boss doesn’t share her sense of fun, but in such critical times there’s no room to fire her - so Matron Blake has to get a little creative with Lana’s punishment.
Really, this one’s got it all. It’s sexy, it’s funny, the spanking is on point, the leather strap is gorgeous, and Lana’s bum looks incredible in that outfit. There’s a sort of campy irreverence to the whole scene that is decidedly British, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I’d found a new personal Dreams of Spanking favourite.
There’s a behind-the-scenes clip for this one too, which I always enjoy - “you should do an outtakes reel”, giggles Lana at one point, as she’s cracking jokes while stretched over Pandora’s knees with her bottom exposed. Given that we already do, that line was an obvious inclusion!
Here’s a thing I’ve learned from the past fifteen years of doing BDSM with people: sometimes it’s the smallest details of a scene or a dynamic that stick with you the most.
Our new release for the week sees Pandora wearing what is referred to in the film as the “punishment dress”; a pretty, flouncy frock that, when combined with her frilly pink knickers, makes up the outfit her character wears every time she’s earned a spanking from her husband.
It’s just an incidental detail, really. In and of itself, the dress doesn’t seem like much of a punishment - it’s not particularly slutty or exposing, there’s nothing inherently humiliating about it. It’s just a dress; one you could wear out to the pub, or in the office with a nice sharp blazer. But it’s the dress her husband has her wear every time he punishes her, the dress she’s had pushed up to her waist a hundred times.
Just think what that would be like after a while. Any time you saw it hanging in the wardrobe, you’d get a little thrill of excitement at all the memories it holds. Any time he told you to put it on, you’d know exactly what was happening without his needing to say another word.
His Spanked Wife is a lovely window into domestic discipline: the anticipation, the obedience, the remorse, the tenderness. You can see the love these characters have for each other in the way the wife kneels at the husband’s feet when they’re done, the sense of calm relief she seems to feel. But my favourite little detail, I think, is that knee-length, plain black punishment dress.
Our content is made possible by the incredible performers that star in it, and our Performer Spotlight series celebrates the cast of Dreams of Spanking for how they enrich our content with their unique style. In this instalment of Performer Spotlight, we’re welcoming a new face - Richard Mclean.
An eager spanko with a cheeky face and naughty bottom, Richard has always known he was into spanking. He’s been on the scene since 2016 when he attended his first kink night in England and has never looked back. You can find Richard on Twitter and Fetlife as SpankyKnight.
Richard got into filming in 2020 when a friend was looking for help filming content. He thought he was purely submissive, but when the opportunity presented itself to spank a lovely lady’s bottom he quickly discovered that giving could be just as fun as receiving.
His debut on Dreams of Spanking will be in our upcoming release, The Panty Boy Next Door. You’ll get to enjoy Richard in a tight pencil skirt and sheer underwear as Pandora gives him a teasingly sensual over the knee spanking.
This is the first of many films starring Richard which will premiere on Dreams of Spanking throughout 2021. We’re excited for you to get your first taste of Richard Mclean this weekend in The Panty Boy Next Door
