An exercise in teamwork

Pandora Blake gets spanked by Stephen Lewis while laying on Kelley May's lap at Dreams of Spanking

It’s very hard to get a spanking completely even. If your implement has any kind of flexibility to it - which many do, including most lighter canes - it’s going to connect differently on different parts of the skin, emphasised by the fact that bottoms have beautiful curves and aren’t a flat surface. Floggers and straps are often thuddier toward the base and stingier at the tip, which gives a gorgeous mix of sensations and can make the experience all the more powerful.

Sometimes, though, that’s not quite what you’re looking for. Even after the very best spankings you can be left with a lopsided feeling - from the way your implement of choice wraps around, from the precise angle your top was striking from, from the side they’re standing on while they spank you. You can switch sides, of course, which leaves your glow a little more even, but it’s never exactly the same.

The ultimate solution to this “problem” (and it’s a great problem to have!) is to get yourself two tops and two toys, one on each side, taking it in turns to beat you as evenly as possible. The result is a gorgeous rain of sensation, and - if this week’s release is anything to go by - a lot of good giggling fun.

Spread for the Strap was filmed at the end of a day-long shoot, and it’s one of our more beautifully candid films. Nobody is following a script or playing a part, and you can tell how much the performers enjoyed the chance to wind down together once the more intense parts of the day were over. By the end, Pandora’s bottom is glowing a bright, beautiful red - and the whole cast are left smiling and laughing after a hard day’s work.

Filled up tight

Part of our mission here is to make porn that has a little narrative integrity: we love complex plots, coherent storylines and off-book acting. We find this helps us to build a world in which the characters feel real and like we can care about them, which in turn makes our scenes more powerful emotive experiences for performer and viewer both.

But even with all that said...sometimes we just need to get fucked.

Which isn’t to say that this week’s conclusion to our two-part film starring Tai Crimson and Pandora Blake doesn’t have a story behind it. It’s been a long time in the making (this footage has been unreleased for a good few years now!) and the reception to Part 1 was fantastic, with many of our viewers loving how filthy and explicit Tai and Pandora are with each other. If that was your favourite thing about Spank My Hole, you’re in for a treat: Fuck My Hole is even dirtier, with Tai’s gorgeous bottom high in the air as she wriggles and squirms in delight while Pandora brings her to a stunning, ecstatic crescendo.

“I don’t think you could ever be fucked enough”, Pandora says toward the end of the scene, before bearing down bodily on Tai to let her feel as stuffed full as possible. And, frankly, we all agree.

Socially distanced, emotionally close...

Emma Christie is over her goth girlfriend Pandora Blake's knee at Dreams of Spanking

After two years of communicating in a more online way than ever before, many of us have seen sides of other people’s lives that we never thought we would. We’ve met our colleagues' cats, seen our therapists' kitchens and had late-night conversations in our friends' bedrooms - and learned all kinds of things about them as a result.

My Lesbian Goth Girlfriend joins a whole new genre of ‘video chat fiction’ inspired by the ways we’ve communicated with each other throughout the pandemic. Emma’s playing the part of an inexperienced spankee in a new relationship, blushing and giggling over Zoom as she fills her best friend in on all the salacious details. Of course, when Pandora overhears their chat she’s struck by a singularly revealing notion - and we get to peep in through the webcam while she carries it out.

The end result is a very red bottom and a friendship taken to a whole new level by a quick catchup video call. And as an added bonus, both of our performers really do look great in those outfits - and Emma’s resoundingly through hairbrush spanking must have been sore for hours after the shoot was over!

Shot through the heart

Clara Hewitt uses a switch on Faerie Willow's red, striped bottom at Dreams of Spanking

They say that there are only seven basic stories in all of history, and we’ve taken artistic licence with all of them in this week’s mythological daydream of a film. When we managed to arrange a weekend’s worth of shooting in a gorgeous period house with two amazing performers at our disposal, we knew we wanted to try a few new things - and Venus Chastising Cupid was an incredibly fun tale to explore.

Faerie Willow was a perfect pick for our cheeky, mischievous take on Cupid, while Clara Hewitt’s knack for maternal sternness made for a great reinterpretation of classical readings of Venus. It was a great weekend of filming all told, and this was a wonderful way to wrap it up - particularly as it’s a scenario that makes fantastic use of the pink, stripy welts Willow had all over her bottom from earlier scenes!

We don’t claim to have absolutely nailed the scholarly accuracy in our retelling of this forgotten legend, but we certainly had a whole lot of fun with it.

The centre of attention

Kelley May spanks Becci Belacqua at Dreams of Spanking

Kinky people talk about headspaces a lot. It’s the word we’ve come to use to describe someone’s frame of mind as they play: are you taking a sadistic pleasure in your partner’s kicks and gasps, or trying to coax them into a state of genuine euphoria? Are you offering up control to a dominant presence you’re aching to serve, or do you want them to take it from you in a battle of wills? There are as many headspaces as there are fantasies, of course, and every set of play partners has its own dynamic.

One of the core truths of healthy, consensual BDSM is that the exchange of power is more complex than it seems at first glance. Ostensibly one party is in control and the other has surrendered it - but in truth the experience is collaborative, and the submissive partner is usually the real centre of a scene. The deeper into your headspaces you are, the more real your fantastical scenario becomes.

Becci’s character in this week’s film is a perfect example of that collaborative creation of a dynamic and a space. The whole surprise was their idea: they suggested to Stephen that he bring them into date night as a present for his partner, and throughout they're clearly very into the story the three of them are telling. They've chosen a state of mind in which they deeply wants to please them both, and the submission they're exploring is of the eager, adoring sort.

In real-life play that’s one of my favourite headspaces to be in, so it’s exciting to see it depicted on camera. Kelley and Stephen - who are an offscreen couple as well as frequent co-stars - nurture it beautifully, strict and sensuous by turns with a wicked gleam in their eyes at their more sadistic moments. And Becci - who is the true centre of attention here - has been an excellent surprise for them both.

The importance of behind the scenes material





We recently received this comment and it seems like the perfect opportunity to speak about the importance of behind the scenes material in what we do.

The BTS at the end of the main movie is edited highlights, so the full BTS movie still has extra material for keen fans. Performer consent is one of our core values, and especially with edgy or taboo scenes, it's absolutely essential that we make the consent of everyone involved clear and transparent to all viewers. The post-credits highlights serve to show a glimpse of the reality on set to everyone who watches the film, even if they don't watch the separate BTS video.

As well as on the membership site where a lot of auxiliary materials such as interviews and the BTS videos are available, we also publish content on other platforms and streaming sites where we upload scenes as a single file. The post-credit outtakes mean that performer consent is visible even if someone is watching the film on Clips4Sale, ManyVids or PinkLabel, while leaving extra value for members of the subscription site which is the only place viewers can access the full behind the scenes video.

The other reason is to defend our brand against piracy. Of course, we hope that members won't share our films on filesharing sites, because they know that doing this impacts our ability to cover costs and to keep doing what we do. But if our films do end up on a tube site, we want performer consent to be visible there too so that the film doesn't end up being viewed out of context where it might have a very different feel and negatively impact our reputation: particularly if it's uploaded with a new (and less positive and respectful) title, keywords and description, as often happens.

Overall, including this material in the main film ensures that it can't be avoided, and that makes our values clear and transparent to all viewers, regardless of where and how a video is accessed. It also provides us with a small degree of legal protection in the event that someone were to maliciously report our site, or one of our videos, to the authorities.

I hope that clears up our position on behind the scenes material. We've recently updated our mission statement to bring it in line with our values, including our focus on transparency in our working practices: you can read more here

Spanked bottoms and silver linings

Lana Moon goes over David Oak's knee for a bare bottom spanking at Dreams of Spanking

There aren’t a lot of silver linings to the pandemic we’ve all been living in for the past two years. One of its few tiny fringe benefits, however, has been the way it’s opened up a whole new genre of punishment scenarios to explore - and from Nimue Allen’s Lockdown Scolding of spring 2020 to this week’s Late Home starring Lana Moon and David Oak, we’ve taken full advantage of them.

In truth, of course, our performers, crew and backstage team have all been extremely careful. Our policy has generally been to behave with a little more caution than the current guidelines strictly require, and it’s paid off not only because we’ve never had an on-set transmission but also in some of the great content we’ve released as a result.

The early pandemic saw our Guest Director series, with a great emphasis on performer-produced porn. We’ve been able to show more real-life couples, something we’ve always focused on for the amazing dynamics it allows us to explore. There’s a treasure trove of unreleased content from earlier years that has been polished up and brought out into the world. And as things have progressed we’ve been able to shoot some masked scenes - which is a fetish all by itself! - and some slice-of-life scenarios that look at the consequences of reckless behaviour.

Lana Moon is a gorgeous spanking model, of course, but she’s also a great comic actor. Her scenes with us are often some of the funniest we release, complete with witty quips and quick one-liners. This latest offering is no different - and given how much her character seems to enjoy the punishments, we won’t be surprised if she’s back for more before long...

A scene straight from our bedrooms

Pandora Blake is naked on the bed, legs bound, as Sarah Gregory leans over them at Dreams of Spanking

This week’s offering is a little more sexually explicit than many of our films, and it’s all the truer for it. We love to explore fantasies and fictions here - the name of the site is Dreams of Spanking, after all! - but one of the hottest things about this release is how realistic it is: this is a real scene between two real people, exploring their bodies and their desires together as any two kinksters on a BDSM playdate might. I particularly loved the way the two of them talk to each other as they play; Sarah’s tone as she tells Blake just what a slut they are is deeply compelling, and there’s a gorgeously aroused edge to Blake’s response as they squirm in their ropes.

The very horniest thing of all, though, is the stunning crescendo at the end of the film. You can really feel the intensity of Blake’s orgasm, and frankly it’s a pretty impressive feat - the timing is impeccable, and I certainly don’t have that level of control!

This isn’t a fantastical scenario in the way many of our films are. There’s no costuming or backstory, and our performers are playing themselves. It’s more like a slice of life scene - if your life was incredibly filthy and meltingly hot.

One can but hope...

For the pleasure of it

Pandora Blake uses the heavy leather flogger on David Weston at Dreams of Spanking

A lot of our work is focused on hot, heavy fantasies: reluctant bottoms taking a harsh punishment, hardy brats weathering severe beatings. We love to explore the endurance and resilience of spankees, and many of the scenarios we depict are about anticipation and nervousness and fear.

Sometimes, though, spanking play isn’t like that. Spanking-as-sensation is an important part of the kink: a chance to really dig into the way things feel, to explore what we can take and what makes us feel the best. It’s a fantastic way for play partners to connect with each other, and for both tops and bottoms to communicate well and learn how the other person works.

In this week’s newly-released scene, David and Pandora aren’t really playing characters or depicting a specific fantastical scenario. This is more like a real-life spanking, showing two people who want to explore a beating for the sheer pleasure of it - and, when it’s done this well, what a pleasure it can be.

Happy New Year

Pandora Blake and Rosie Bower celebrate New Year's Eve at Dreams of Spanking

By the time you read this 2022 will be under way, but I’m writing it in the depths of the festive perineum - those strange, limbo-like days where we’re all living off leftover potatoes and half-finished tubs of Quality Street, striving to do as little as possible as the clock ticks us back toward real life. Usually for me this period ends with some kind of a party that at my age I’m still recovering from on January 2nd, but like last year this isn’t quite the time for it.

If, like me, you’re not quite sure how to mark the passing of the year in a way that feels meaningful when all your friends still seem to live inside GatherTown and Zoom, our final festive offering of the holiday season might give you some excellent ideas.

Caned at Midnight stars the gorgeous Rosie Bower, last seen at Halloween as swashbuckling pirate queen Rosie the Brave. This time the two performers have a whole different dynamic; they’re a happy couple, looking forward to a quiet NYE at home with a little something extra on top. As the clock counts down and the stripes rack up, it’s clear they’re both having a great time despite Rosie’s obvious discomfort at such a severe caning. 

It’s a great start to the year for them both, and the perfect final release for our 2021 lineup - so head over and have a look, and keep the return to chilly January at bay for a few minutes longer.
