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.
A book makes a surprisingly good spanking implement. I’ve been spanked with books myself, in fact; they’re often at hand, they’re easy to wield, they give a satisfyingly thuddy impact that makes a great warmup beating. Their subjects can add a little something to the headspace, too: it’s amusingly apposite to be beaten with a copy of Crime & Punishment, and it can be extra humiliating if the chosen tome is by an essayist whose opinions you loathe.
In the backstage content released alongside Part I, Sai and Eve talk about how they’ve both been around and alongside books their whole lives. Books have been an important part of their careers; Sai really was a bookshop manager for a good while, and Eve has worked in several others. They’re both avid readers, and the books they collect as a couple mean a lot to them.
It makes sense, then, for them to involve books in their kinky lives in this way - and we’re delighted to have them share that with us. Some of the funniest moments in this film arise from the comments Eve and Sai make about particular choices that get pulled off the shelves to further redden Sai’s shapely bottom. A must-see for fans of switch couples and sexy literature, this scene, like its predecessor, is a beautiful microcosm of a real relationship - funny, sexy, and deeply connected.
As a studio, we’ve never shied away from telling intense stories or exploring taboo fantasies. Parent/child pairings are a popular spanking fantasy dynamic, and they’re pretty common in our films; we’ve done a lot of shoots featuring wayward teenagers being set straight by their strict, traditional families.
There’s something a little special about this week’s addition to that cannon, though. The co-parenting couple played by Stephen Lewis and Kelley May in I’m Sorry We Let It Get To This aren’t distant or harsh, and they don’t seem to do this often or resort to spanking for every little infraction. Rather, the belting they give to Richard McLean is something of a last resort for them - and they’re both juxtaposingly loving and gentle as it’s administered, talking him through it stroke by stroke and reminding him that this is all for his own good.
In a way, the overall effect of this scene is actually darker than some of our shoutier and stricter fictional families. It stirs up something almost primal within the viewer; it’s uncanny-valley-close to the way a real loving parent might speak to a teenager they were concerned for. And of course that’s exactly what makes it so hot - they’re doing this for him, after all. This spanking is entirely for his own benefit, and they’re getting nothing out of it themselves. It hurts them to see him in pain, in fact. They’re sorry it came to this.
One of the beautiful things about relationships with an element of domestic discipline is that problems can be solved almost as soon as they’ve arisen. There’s little chance for one partner to let a minor niggle fester until it’s grown into a major issue, because there’s a system for that: both the dominant and the submissive partner know how to address these things.
Overtly, of course, the resolution is in the spanking itself - a punishment delivered as a response to thoughtlessness or poor manners or the breaking of a rule. There’s a lot to be said for it: it’s a bonding, intimate moment for both parties, something that creates endorphins and draws people together and lets everyone work through their tensions and stresses. A physical connection like that can go a long way to heal an emotional rift, and presenting it as a punishment lets the problem feel fully resolved.
I think there’s more to it than only that, though.
This week’s release starts with Carlos coming to Pandora with his apologies, his admissions and his concerns. He tells her that he understands now why his actions hurt her, and that he’s sorry; she explains what bothered her the most, and gives him a chance to listen and respond. This fictional couple’s domestic discipline dynamic is the heart of this film and the ensuing spanking is great fun to watch - but in real life the stuff that comes before it, the bit where they talk openly and honestly and share their deeper feelings about what went down the night before, would be a truly healthy and important thing.
All that being said, the high point for us is of course getting to watch Carlos bent so prettily over the bed, with his jeans at his ankles and his exposed bottom high in the air. He’s still a little red from his spanking the night before, and he feels every kiss of his own belt as Pandora thrashes him with it. And it is so very lovely to hear him ask her for the cane and count out the strokes...
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.
This week’s film kicks off in media res, Pandora already bent over Stephen’s knee, kicking and squirming as he lays into her with his belt. It’s a classic spanking scene, perfectly pitched for any fan of the genre.
What I think really makes this one stand out is the scolding, though. Stephen Lewis is an old hand at this - he knows exactly what to say to a misbehaving submissive to leave them suitably shamed and chastised. Maybe this is just my own bias coming through (god knows I love a chatty dominant!), but it’s so often the dialogue that makes a real-life spanking scene special, right? Stephen has all that down pat, and it makes for a highly enjoyable film.
We’ve got some behind-the-scenes footage for you this week too, which I always enjoy watching - I’ve never actually been on set with Pandora, and it’s fun to get a glimpse behind the curtain. I’d never really thought about it till I watched this clip, but some of the hottest angles and sexiest shots require a bit of up close contortion from the cameraperson!
Remember our recent Guest Director release The Credit Card? If you need your memory jogged a little, it’s the one where the stunning Sha Luciana gets her incredibly spankable behind roundly warmed by her husband Pharaoh, following his discovery of her latest credit card bill. I’m sure you remember it anyway, of course; a spanking like that is hard to forget!
Anyway, when that came out we promised you a little something more to follow - and we always keep our promises. This weekend we’re excited to announce the release of some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage that gives us all a chance to get to know Pharaoh and Sha a little better - and see some more of her perfect bottom, too.
This film is amongst the most intimate and personal footage we’ve released here on Dreams of Spanking. The beauty of Pharaoh and Sha’s content is that everything you see is real; most of their films show punishments Sha would have received whether the camera was rolling or not.
There’s a casual, conversational tone to the whole clip, and they really make you feel like you’re hanging out with them listening to them chat. They’ve also got a special surprise in store at the end - what do you reckon Sha’s getting punished for this time?
On 26th September, we released the guest film Caught Camming with Jayda Blayze and Universal Spanking. We’ve been loving our Guest Director series as a way to peek into the creative process of our peers and colleagues, not to mention we get to sit back and enjoy the film without knowing what’s going to happen next!
Working with Jayda and Universal Spanking was such fun, and so we were delighted to be sent a behind-the-scenes interview of the film. After watching such a taboo power dynamic at play with some serious spanking, it was refreshing to hear Universal Spanking and Jayda as their relaxed and authentic selves.
In the interview, Jayda tells us the cringeworthy story that forms the genesis of the Caught Camming plot. And no, it’s not as far-fetched as you might think. If you have ever wanted to ask Jayda if a parent has ever walked in on her - you’ll find your answer in this interview.
The duo talk a little about their favourite and least favourite implements for spanking. Jayda is subjected to a variety of them in the film, from the razor strap to the belt. Jayda describes the wooden paddle as “not bad”, and Universal Spanking jumps on the opportunity to test that theory. Jayda is laughing as she’s instructed to bend over, and is given three strikes of the wooden paddle so she can confirm if it really is “not bad”. It’s a lovely light-hearted moment which is following by a cuddle, and we get a heartwarming insight into the caring relationship between these two performers.
Caught Camming and its behind-the-scenes are out now on Dreams of Spanking. Be sure to leave us a comment and let us know your favourite implement!
‘Caught Camming’ with Jayda Blayze is the third film in our new Guest Director series, and we think it’s going brilliantly. (The others, if you were wondering, were ‘A Spot of Bother’ - our latest period piece, directed by and starring Charlie J Forrest - and Nimue Allen’s ‘Lockdown Scolding’.)
Made in collaboration with Universal Spanking, the fantasy behind this film is all Jayda’s own - to find out a little more about her inspiration, watch the behind-the-scenes extra we’re releasing in tandem with the main event.
We’ve always been champions of performer-produced content here at Dreams of Spanking: it fits perfectly with our ethical standpoint and our focus on consent above all else. The continued need for social distancing has kept us from being able to get our own cameras rolling again, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce you all to some fresh content made by other performer/directors - including those who, like Jayda, live too far away to shoot with us in person.
It’s been wonderful to have a chance to work with Jayda, and we’re pleased to announce that this won’t be the last time - we’ve got another film starring her coming out in due course, so watch this space! In the meantime, you can get your Jayda fix on Just For Fans, ManyVids or Twitter.
Well, it’s September: back to school season is officially in full swing. Of course 2020 doesn’t like to do anything normally, so this year the re-opening of the schools is something many of us have mixed feelings about. If nothing else though many parents will have a bit more alone time now than they’ve had since the spring - so we thought we’d give you all a good reason to subscribe or re-subscribe to Dreams of Spanking!
A few years back we released lesbian school spanking film Back To School starring Molly Malone and Nimue Allen, and it turned out to be a fan favourite. It wasn’t originally intended as a two-parter, but Molly and Nimue got so into it that the roleplay went on for a good half hour of spanking gold.
Since it came out, though, we’ve improved the way we produce content here - so we figured it was time to give this hit film a bit of a glow-up. It definitely deserved a release as a complete scene, so Pandora has gone through and remastered it from start to finish. It’s been touched up, re-edited, and had the storyline of the roleplay brought to the fore. We’ve also dug out some never before seen behind-the-scenes footage, including the bit where Molly went completely doolally after a severe whipping from Nimue’s belt. They’d originally intended to switch again, but after that Molly realised she was melted into such a puddle that she couldn’t get her top headspace back and subbed for the rest of the scene! It’s a great moment, and it really adds something to the film itself.
In honour of this peculiar back to school season, we’re giving away a free exclusive download copy of the new and improved Back to School to everyone who joins (or re-joins!) between now and October 15th. We aren't publishing this edit on the site, so now's your chance to grab it - go get it, and give yourself the gift of nostalgic school punishment.
