Faerie Willow gets the cane on her bare feet from Clara Hewitt, as Pandora Blake holds her hands to comfort her at Dreams of Spanking

This week’s offering has it all: schoolgirls, caning, feet, queer innuendo, blackmail, practically everything the discerning fetishist wants in a film. 

One of my favourite things about this little duo of scenes focused on beatings off the beaten track is actually the friendship between the two girls played by Fairie Willow and Pandora Blake. They don’t seem to be romantically involved, but they’re absolutely partners in crime. They get each other into trouble and support each other through its consequences. When a punishment is happening they hold hands and when it’s over they compare marks. I’m a sucker for representations of femme friendship, and this is a lovely example of the genre!

The real focus of this pair of films though is the unusual locations to which Headmistress Hewitt chooses to apply her cane: thighs, hands, feet, over the top of still-angry welts. There were some firsts in here for Willow, who earlier in the day had shot her first ever cold caning scene, and she squrims and winces beautifully as Clara removes her white school kneesocks and canes the soles of her feet.

If you’re a fan of unconventional beatings and naughty schoolgirls, watch this space: we’re releasing new content every week, and as ever we still have a few tricks up our sleeves.

Curiosities



It’s two for the price of one this week with Willow’s repeated misdemeanours (her knickers may be regulation, but her eyeshadow
certainly isn’t) seeing her hauled in front of the mortarboarded Headmistress for the umpteenth time. So far, so spanking-shoot - but just this once there’s an unexpected little twist...

Prefect Blake in this scene embodies a curiosity that a lot of us can identify with. I think many spanking fans had the “I wonder what that feels like” phase; mostly not from counting down the strokes administered to our fellow pupils, I suppose, but at least from watching illicit late-night movies with the volume turned down imperceptibly low on the bedroom TV.

The bit that most echoed my own life, though, was the ending: once she’s alone in the office Pandora smirks to the camera, satisfied and excited and relieved. She pulls down her trousers to inspect her marks, grins when she sees how red she is, hopes she’s left with a few lasting welts. I remember that feeling - the discovery and the excitement, the sense of a new desire finding its home inside me. For me it was a train platform in Stretham rather than the Head’s office, but it’s a moment I will remember for the rest of my life.

Of course, she’s not the only star of this week’s show. The ever-adorable Faerie Willow was a real trooper on set that day, and seeing the welts from her previous caning when she exposes her bottom for this scene is a real highlight. She’s got the ‘wayward teenager’ vibe down pat, doesn’t she? Whether you prefer your spankees reluctant or enthusiastic you’re in for a treat with this one - and as ever, each of Clara’s strikes hits the perfect spot.

Getting you intimately involved

Porn takes many forms. Many people assume it’s all about people with idealised bodies engaging in aggressive fucking, but we know that’s only a small part of it: there is porn for every niche, starring every body type, catering to every audience. And of course it comes in so many different formats too, including audio stories and photo galleries.

The jerk-off instruction video (JOI) has become incredibly popular. People have been telling each other what to do in bed since time immemorial - and as a pornographic genre, it's really found a foothold once everyone started carrying little video studios around in their pockets. As DIY porn has exploded, particularly in this strange new post-pandemic landscape, swathes of new small, independent pornographers have been looking for ways to engage their viewers shooting solo in the bedrooms. What better way to do that than to involve the viewer directly?

Point of view scenes are intimate and carry a powerful punch with the feeling that your favourite porn star is speaking directly to you. They know you're probably wanking while watching their video - and if they tell you exactly how they want you to do it, it adds an extra layer of excitement. You can now get JOIs aimed at male and female viewers - this one is aimed at cock owners, as it was a custom film ordered by a viewer. If you'd like us to produce a cunt-oriented JOI film, leave a comment on this post!

Our latest film, Bend Over New Boy, combines a school caning POV with Pandora in the role as gleefully sadistic prefect with a naughty strap-on fuelled JOI, all in prim and proper English school uniform. A follow up to our recent caning JOI film A Visit to the Schoolmaster, this is a story of tables turned and bottoms beaten with a subversive little twist. Imagine yourself in the role of helpless new boy during his first term at school, facing the cane for the first time... and whatever's in your pants, touch yourself as much as you like.

On the wonders of aural sex

Paddle, flogger and dice at Dreams of Spanking

I’ve always thought there wasn’t enough audio porn in the world.

Partly that’s down to my own particular set of, er, ‘interests’. I once came just from someone talking me into it, no physical touching required, and I’ve always harboured a deep-seated interest in submissive hypnosis - I could write an essay on the wonders of a chatty dominant!

It’s not just that, though: it’s also because audio erotica lets you get lost in your own mind like nothing else does. Much as I prefer radio soaps to their televisual counterparts (because on radio the pictures are better), aural porn is as close as it gets to a two-person solo experience.

In-ear headphones help a lot with this. They sound like the speaker’s voice is right inside my own head, and that feeling has been a powerful element of some of my most memorable sexual experiences. Even when you’re alone, with audio porn there’s no barrier between you and the fantasy at hand; there’s no bright screen to keep an eye on, no variably-formatted text to squint at on your phone. You can invite the story into your mind and let yourself get lost in it.

One of the things that makes porn difficult - both to create as a performer and to find as a consumer - is that everyone wants porn that is exactly their thing. Cis men are usually the assumed viewer, especially if one’s interests run primarily to the femdom end of the spectrum (I can’t really be the only queer female sub who wants to watch femdom stuff, can I?) - and even when that’s not a problem, most of us still want to find porn where the performers are our physical ‘type’ and the setting is one that resonates.

None of that matters with audio erotica. I’m especially fond of scenes like our recent Snake Eyes where the story is essentially a monologue; the submissive is never described, never gendered, never referred to other than as “you”. The encounter could be taking place anywhere - a dungeon, a castle, your own bedroom. Zak, with her calm, commanding voice, could be anyone you wanted to put yourself at the mercy of. This is a story of random factors and precise paddling that comes tailor-made for any subby spanking fan who listens to it.

I get that humans tend to be highly visual creatures, of course, but goddamn - sometimes, I just want someone to whisper into my ear.

Subverting the expected tropes

Anty gets scolded by Pandora Blake at Dreams of Spanking

I have a confession to make: when I first saw the opening shots of this film, I assumed Anty would be the one doling out the punishment.

It seems like the expected choice, really, doesn’t it? The surly butch dealer type, taking our Pandora in hand. Pandora herself is ever so femme in this scene, in a floral camisole and figure-hugging skirt, and my mind went directly to the classic butch top/femme bottom dynamic. But Dreams of Spanking has a long history of subverting the expected tropes, and this is no exception.

As the plot develops, it transpires that it won’t be like that at all - rather, a recalcitrant Anty is to be punished for her misdemeanours, bent over and beaten till her backside glows bright red. Pandora administers the punishment with clinical precision, taking time to line up every stroke and letting us see the excited glint in her eye. The resulting collection of welts is a sight to behold, and I winced in sympathy for Anty as Pandora instructed her to pull up her jeans. I too know how much that can sting!

In the end, though, my very favourite thing about this scene isn’t part of the punishment itself at all (though believe me, it’s a good’un). There’s this bit toward the end, just after the spanking has finished, where our co-stars are looking at each other in a long-angled shot - and for a moment, the screen sizzles with sexual tension. For all I knew it wasn’t part of the film, I half expected them to jump each other anyway.

And really that’s what we love most about Dreams of Spanking, isn’t it? So much of what we see here is real, even when the performers involved are actors playing a part. There’s nothing faked about the stingingly beautiful state of Anty’s bottom at the end of her punishment, and I reckon there wasn’t much faked in that snapshot of domme/sub desire either.

I could be wrong, of course. But if you’d like to see this scene for yourself - and it’s great fun from start to finish - it’s out now, and you can find it right here.

(PS - my second favourite thing about this film is Anty’s response when Pandora tells her she won’t hiring her as a dogsitter again: “But I love your dogs!”. We here at Dreams of Spanking are pleased to reassure you that no dogs were harmed in the making of this fantasy.)

Lockdown porn

Nimue Allen explains how she's going to cane you on Dreams of Spanking

Here in the UK, the lockdown has changed all our lives profoundly - and as I’ve written about previously, shooting porn is no exception! 

Performer-produced porn is nothing new; many of us who work in the industry already have experience of planning, filming, editing and promoting our own shoots from start to finish. These skills have never been more essential than they are right now, at a time when co-stars and camera operators are out of the question unless they’re people we already happen to live with.

That’s why everything in this simple first-person-POV clip is Nimue Allen’s own work, and it’s part of a growing genre of ‘lockdown porn’ that I’m sure we’ll see more of in the coming weeks. The viewer is cast as a wayward sub who has selfishly chosen to share a drink with friends despite the risk, and femdom Nimue must take your punishment into her own capable hands.

We love performer-produced porn here at Dreams Of Spanking, because it’s the perfect embodiment of our values. The performer has total control over every aspect of the shoot, so consent is baked right in and we’re given the chance to play with new themes and ideas at our leisure. When producing my own porn, I’ve often found it gives me the chance to try things out I might not have an opportunity to in another context - and of course our fans reap the benefit of that experimentation! 

Nimue told me that she found shooting this scene to be “very therapeutic” - and I must say, I think being on the receiving end of the caning she describes would be pretty damn therapeutic too...

A knowing twinkle in Headmaster and schoolgirl's eye...

Pandora Blake caned at Dreams of Spanking

I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for strict teacher/naughty pupil spanking scenes, and Even Teachers Make Mistakes pushes all the right buttons. There’s the décor – crossed canes on the wall, Union Jacks to show the upholding of Proper British Values, and all the rest of it. There’s Pandora’s choice of bad-girl attire – super short denim shorts, and a tight Ace of Spades t-shirt. There’s the ritual ‘Oh but Sir!’, and the ‘Don’t answer back, get those knickers down!’ And then there’s the caning itself, expertly delivered and beautifully paced.

I like it when scenes like this are done with a knowing twinkle in the eye of each performer. In this film, I love watching Pandora’s face as the caning progresses; her little yelps and gasps for breath, and the way she chews her lip once the pain kicks in. I know some people find school caning fare a bit camp, but my tastes have always run to kink that is fun for all concerned - and despite Mike's strictness at the start, this film delivers. I particularly like the ending, which I won’t spoil for you except to say that it’s probably not quite what you might expect.

Over the years, I’ve done a fair bit of school-themed play and, of all the spanking things I’ve ever done, for me school scenes always seem to tend to end up with everyone involved nearly helpless with laughter, even while there are also tears of pain from whoever I’m whacking. I love to elicit tears in a reaction to a particularly hard stroke – but laughter and tears are more closely linked than some people think. No one actually gets to the point of giggling in Even Teachers Make Mistakes, but I couldn't help observing the occasional hint of enjoyment or trace of a smile which didn't quite seem entirely in character. For me, these moments of joy bubbling up through the strict disciplinary facade of the scene make the whole thing more enjoyable. I also spotted what I reckon was a hint of imminent tears from Pandora - which I liked even more.

Both Mike and Pandora clearly know one another well and are comfortable working together; apparently Danielle K, who was behind the camera, is a friend of Pandora's who is new to Dreams of Spanking. On the strength of this scene, I would say she fits right in – it’s a beautifully shot short film. I’m tempted to go get my cane, now, and see if there’s a willing bottom available, so I can practice some more until my tramlines are as precise as Mike Pain’s.

An authentic school punishment caning

“You're supposed to be setting an example. Sixth former or no sixth former you can and will be punished.”

I might have to rein myself in from dedicating this entire blogpost to Dr Richard Barton's withering sarcasm. As Fauni Cate trembles nervously before him, dressed in a way that definitely isn't up to school uniform standards, it's the lip rings that seem to get the strict headmaster most worked up. Dr Barton uses all the lines that people with piercings have heard so often from authority figures - it's a glorious performance of headmasterly pomposity:

“What is all this metalwork? Are you coming apart? Do you need riveting?”
“What happens when you go through a security gate?”

Fauni's nervous shuffles and excuses are all too familiar, and the clipped, wry tone in which Dr Barton berates him creates an atmosphere of swift, no-nonsense school punishment.

This is Fauni's first caning, and it comes at the end of his first ever porn shoot, so these six cane strokes are taken in authentic historical style, over his school trousers. He bends over the desk as Dr Barton flexes the cane, and the sound the cane makes as it falls is amazing.

I'm a wuss when it comes to caning, but I can't get enough of the swish-crack sound the cane makes when brought down good and hard onto someone's bottom. And the beauty of a caning through trousers is you get a louder sound – a nice, smart thwack. This is a real old-fashioned six of the best, with Fauni visibly wincing as each stroke lands. The cracks punctuate Dr Barton's lecture beautifully, as he picks out each of Fauni's dress code failings.

If you've watched Fauni and Dr Barton before – in their fantastic Pride video, with Fauni as the cheeky, queer punk determined to disobey – then you'll already know just how well these two work together. I'm a sucker for male/male spankings, and the sheer contrast between straight-laced Dr Barton and pierced, punky Fauni Cate gives their scenes a fantastic atmosphere.

Authority figure versus youth. Headmaster versus student. Convention versus rebellion. And a strict punishment for the rebel who is caught... 

This blogpost contains 383 cane strokes

Sometimes protesters wear scowls ­ a clear expression of anger against an unjust system. Sometimes, though, they wear defiant grins – as Adele Haze does in her sponsored caning.

Nimue Allen wields the cane, and in between strokes Adele flashes cheeky smiles at the camera, and occasionally asks for some even harder strokes. She curls her toes with each crack of the cane, and by the end her gorgeous bare bottom is covered in neat red welts.

This scene is the final in our series of sponsored canings, and Adele clearly wants to make the most of it – insisting that the caning be more than 'transient and trifling', as a real act of resistance against the UK porn censors.

Our sponsored caning climax

In case you've missed it, here's a quick recap: in December new rules came into force that meant that many porn websites (including Dreams of Spanking) would be scrutinised by ATVOD – the Association for TV On Demand. This organisation – not democratically accountable, by the way -­ objects to a whole host of sexual things, from facesitting and squirting through to pain play that leaves any marks beyond 'transient and trifling'. Hence Adele's request.

ATVOD has already made its move on Dreams of Spanking, and as a result the site is under threat of censorship so irrational and strict that it would potentially force Pandora to shut the site down. In response, she and Nimue Allen set up a kickstarter with the aim of raising money to mount a legal challenge against the new regulations. The idea was simple: they'd take one hard cane stroke for each £10 donated, and release the resulting films for free online. They anticipated a maximum of £1000... but they got so much more.

The final total of over £3,800 meant they had to recruit more bottoms to take the extra cane strokes, with the result that there are now ten free caning videos online, each starring a different brave volunteer.

Let's take a trip down the sponsored caning memory lane...

It's a fitting climax – Adele's combination of seditious glee, rage against the 'ridiculous nonsense' of the new porn rules, and eagerness to take harder strokes on the bare bottom – all of these sum up perfectly what our sponsored caning fundraiser is all about.

Adele explains that she tumbled onto the spanking scene as soon as she discovered it existed – in the late 90s, when internet groups started taking off. Initially focused on bottoming, she now mostly plays as a top, as well as doing and other work as a fetish performer. This free caning film marks her first time bottoming in well over a year, a mark of how important it was for to her to join in with the UK porn protests:

“I'm not personally affected because I don't make my own material.... although pretty much any work I've done that's on the stricter side would fail the ATVOD test,” she explains. But this sounds, Adele says, like corporate censorship – by cutting off the ability to make a living from kinky porn, you're essentially trying to wipe it out. She highlights the fact that ATVOD's jurisdiction only falls upon studios that they deem to be suitably 'TV-like' – which often comes down to production decisions such as including opening and closing credits, scripts and music. “So if I did want to start a studio, the only way to go around the criteria that you are TV­-like is to make really terrible porn.”

Please go and watch all of the sponsored caning videos – every single one is available for free on Dreams of Spanking, and licensed under Creative Commons (so share them around if you can!). In protest against porn censorship, a lot of people were willing to put their bottoms on the line and make unique, personal, caning scenes that reflect their own frustrations about porn censorship.

From Adele's seditious smile to the curl of her toes as she accepts a hard cane stroke, from the bright red marks on her bottom to the gasp of breath when she takes stroke thirty ­eight, this caning film is the perfect finale to the sponsored caning series. Three hundred and eighty ­three cane strokes in total, and each and every one sends a clear message to ATVOD: We might get beaten, but you'll never beat us.

5 reasons to get caned on camera -€“ and they're probably not what you think

Michelle Knight is a bondage fan and activist against porn censorship. Despite not being a fan of corporal punishment, she volunteered to take fifty hard cane strokes in protest against ATVOD. Why? Well, as Michelle explains:

“I'm doing this not for my own pleasure, but to help raise the money to take them to court.”

Bravely, Michelle bends over the sofa and calmly takes every single stroke – her first caning on camera. Her reasons for doing so are more complicated than you might think, and her pre-shoot interview gives some fascinating background on the history of UK porn censorship, as well as her personal reasons for taking on this challenge.

Porn activist Michelle Knight bends over to receive her first ever hard caning at Dreams of Spanking

Reason 1: Show the truth, not the fiction

“There's a lot of fiction out there,” explains Michelle. She's spent the last twenty years educating people on issues to do with sexuality – running bondage website RealBondage.co.uk and writing books, as well as taking part in support groups for trans people. “There's a lot of fiction out there, and people are making decisions based on that.”

Her website and books are aimed telling the truth about bondage for people who are curious. Michelle explains that, when not given the right information, people are reliant on a fiction about BDSM and sexuality that encourages them to 'panic, panic, panic!'

What better way to challenge that fiction than by showing a real-life caning scene, complete with discussion, negotiation, and occasional breaks for tea and banana cake?

Porn activist Michelle Knight bends over to receive her first ever hard caning at Dreams of Spanking

Reason 2: It's not the first time

Protesting the UK porn laws is not new to Michelle, who confesses that “ever since 2008 I've been a thorn in the side of the CPS, Home Office, Lords, my MP – oh boy!”

The Criminal Justice and Immigration Act in 2008 (often referred to as the 'Extreme Porn Law') sought to ban 'extreme' porn, and as you might have guessed, the word 'extreme' includes plenty of bondage, spanking, other forms of BDSM – things which kinksters engage in safely and consensually all the time.

The latest furore, with ATVOD, could see sites like Dreams of Spanking under the jurisdiction of a censor which hates any but the most gentle form of spanking. But it's certainly not the first - just the latest in a long line of attacks on kinky porn.

Porn activist Michelle Knight bends over to receive her first ever hard caning at Dreams of Spanking

Reason 3: They haven't done the proper research

That 'Extreme Porn Law' – in 2008 – was subject to a rapid impact assessment before being passed. The key word here is 'rapid' - as Michelle explains, the organisation responsible for reviewing it mentioned that it did not have enough time to do a proper job.

This is a criticism that comes up frequently when looking at how the government makes changes which impact pornography and sexuality – lack of consultation with people whose lives will be affected by changes means that those making decisions rarely – if ever - get the full picture.

Reason 4: It's undemocratic

These are not policies which have been put forward in manifestos, or offered publicly for debate. In the case of the 'Extreme Porn Law', it was buried in the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act, which tackled a whole range of other topics completely unrelated to porn.

The recent changes are no different – they are primarily being made by ATVOD and the BBFC: statutory bodies which hold no direct democratic accountability.

Michelle explains: “They are operating as a law unto themselves – they are not fit as a body. They're making it up as they go along.” She adds that, from the government's point of view, this is almost certainly not an accident: “They don't want discussion on this. They want to oppress us. That's one of the major things I'm against.”

Reason 5: This is the only way to do this

There are lots of ways you can protest against democratic changes – you can stand in the street with a placard, or write to your MP. And while these things may help raise awareness of the changes, ultimately Michelle believes that the solution is more drastic:

“It looks like the only way we're going to be able to do this is to drag them through the courts.”
