This week we’re releasing another scene from our fantastically successful weekend-long shoot with Faerie Willow and Clara Hewitt. We had a gorgeous period house to play in, and we made loads of great content - past hits from the two days we were there include Mater Familias and the Finishing School duo, amongst others.
Not Dressed Like That You Don’t is a deeper exploration of a particular kind of spanking dynamic: the nurturing, protective top who wants to help their spankee grow and learn. Clara is excellent in this kind of role, and strikes a perfect balance between loving and firm - even as Willow starts out doing her best ‘cheeky brat’ impression!
If you enjoy ageplay dynamics and nurturing discipline, this one’s for you. You should also check it out if you just like the idea of seeing Willow in a scandalously short pink miniskirt - it really does draw the attention rather...
There’s always been a rather Sapphic edge to the dynamic between a lady of noble birth and her slightly less privileged companions. This is particularly true in Victorian and early 20th century settings, where two unattached women might find themselves alone together for extended periods of time and bound by convention not to form real bonds with either the servants or the menfolk. In a world where emotive expression is not encouraged and intimacy is confined to closed doors and dark corners, human beings look for connection. Plus, you know...that power dynamic is hot as hell.
Which is precisely the conclusion reached by Miss Bower, the titular Lady’s Companion played by Rosie in this week’s release.
She mostly took the job out of necessity, we suspect; she needed to find a husband, which would be easier in the company of Lady Pandora than from her own reduced circumstances, and she needed to support herself in the meantime, which the house and wage on offer would enable her to do. And if her new mistress’s idea of discipline seems a little draconian...well, it’s a small price to pay.
Once she’s been there a while, though, she makes a startling discovery. There’s much more to learn from this rich widow than simply etiquette and connections - Coleridge and his “woman wailing for her demon-lover” give Miss Bower quite a start - and as for the discipline, well, it turns out there’s more to like about that than she could ever have imagined.
There’s a fun moment in the backstage footage where Rosie remarks that her character is clearly never going to marry - the two of them will be quite happy together for a long time yet, she suspects. I can’t say I can blame her.
The concept of a tyrannical dominant who runs a stable of auctioned submissives is a staple of the BDSM genre. In many of its iterations it follows the same few tropes: the participants are mostly straight, with perhaps the occasional bit of ‘play bisexuality’ thrown in as part of getting people out of their comfort zones; they’re overwhelmingly cis, with the only gender-non-conforming elements coming from cis men who enjoy the French maid role as submissives; most of the characters involved are white, especially the dominants. There’s also often an element of reluctance, with some of the submissive characters feeling in over their heads or in some way coerced.
Many of these tropes have their place. We’re huge fans of people being able to play out their fantasies in consensual, negotiated ways, and we certainly don’t shy away from themes of coercion and reluctance in our fictions here. Still, though, we like to do things a little differently when we can.
Goddess Lana’s New Slave is our latest addition to this canon, and it turns several of the usual patterns on their heads. Blake’s butch, submissive character is clearly eager to be where they are, and has very obviously enjoyed their rule-breaking spanking - there’s a delicious frisson of naughtiness to them as their reddened bottom is revealed, and they’re clearly eager to find out what their new Mistress’s reaction will be. Lana is gorgeously imperious and utterly femme, parading her latest acquisition aroud the room and pondering on all the fun she plans to have with them.
Lana Moon’s films are always fun to watch, and this is no exception - whether you’d rather be helping her keep her favourite steeds in line or joining them in their grabbable leather harnesses, you’ll enjoy this sojourn in the Mistress’s house.
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.
A small slice of history for you this week: Ms. Howard’s Little Girl was the first fan-requested, multi-performer custom film Pandora ever shot, and it was originally made way back in 2009. At the time it went unreleased, but if you’re a longstanding member you will have seen some of this footage before.
2013’s My Inner Little Girl is one of our best films. It’s a lot of fun to watch, it’s a gorgeous representation of what we’re trying to do here and it’s one Pandora had a great time making. Part of what makes it work so well is the fantasy sections, which are full separate little scenes in which this otherwise solo film acquires a co-star. Those daydreams came from this shoot: you’ll spot some of them in this week’s release, and the others originated in a film called Tammy’s Shame that we’ll be releasing in a few weeks time.
There are reasons we chose not to publicly release all this footage the first time around. The plot is a little hokey, and it has such a wealth of detail and description that our performers weren’t able to get entirely off-book. But as a team we’re better at editing and producing films now: this doesn’t look like footage we shot last week, but it has come together into something we think is well worth getting out there at last.
We all love My Inner Little Girl, we all love Zoe Montana and we all love stumbling across some unreleased spanking content - so we’re thrilled to finally bring you Ms. Howard’s Little Girl, and we think you’ll enjoy this trip down memory lane as much as we have.
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.
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!
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...
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.
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.
