I have decided I love audio porn. It’s like bedtime stories for grown-ups; all that’s missing is the “are you sitting comfortably, then I’ll begin”. They are perfect for curling up in bed and listening in blissful solitude; whether you’re looking for kinky inspiration for your own partner play, to inspire sexy dreams, or just to stimulate you in the moment. Pandora Blake’s voice is a perfect balance between throaty arousal and moderated calm.
Lucy’s Punishment by Rosie Bower is a delightfully naughty audio spanking story about a schoolgirl who fantasises about being punished by her teacher, Mr Roberts. She decides to make her fantasies reality, and sets about pushing all her teacher’s buttons until she gets what she wants. When her provocation has the intended effect, and he loses his self-control and tells her to see him at the end of school, she spends the rest of the day in a cloud of anticipation.
However, punishment is never what we expect it to be, and when Lucy’s begins by her being made to list her crimes she realises she might be getting more than she bargained for. She is told to lift her skirt, pull down her knickers, and count each stroke. I really enjoyed the part when she finds out that forgetting to count out loud means that she has only extended her punishment.
There is a delicious moment when something in her shifts, and she begins to truly enjoy the humiliation of her punishment - especially when Mr Roberts ups the ante by bringing in other unseen teachers to watch her be caned. She is held in the moment by the pain of each stroke, but at the same time finds herself drifting into fantasy; imagining what else she wishes they were doing.
The glimpse into Mr Roberts' thoughts when Lucy asks for that last stroke of the cane is beautifully done. It gives a window into all the possibilities that might have been, from the perspective of the person who is truly in charge of this situation, in a way that Lucy’s idle fantasies don’t.
When we share Lucy’s thoughts before she makes herself request one more stroke of the cane, it is as if we are somehow watching her evolve. She finds a maturity that involves realising and taking responsibility for her sexuality, her provocative actions, and her sexual future. It really added something to the story, turning a lovely sexy tale into something that sparks something more in our imagination.
This lovely - and very hot - schoolgirl caning story is a perfect candidate for audio porn because it involves so much imagination and fantasy. It's easy for the listener to imagine themselves in the story; although whether you relate more to Lucy or Mr Roberts is up to you.
Our new film Houseboy is a departure from the usual videos on Dreams of Spanking - and most other spanking sites. This is our first attempt at a cinematic short film, aiming for a higher standard of cinematography and storytelling than we are usually able to achieve. I wasn't planning to shoot this way from the start - it came about from a convergence of factors that created the perfect opportunity to try something new.
Casting Tai Crimson
It started last year, when I met an enthusiastically kinky and ridiculously cute young person from San Francisco. He was gorgeous, he loved spanking - he could certainly take it - and he expressed an interest in shooting for Dreams of Spanking. He wasn't old enough at that point to perform in porn, but I said that once he turned 18 I'd be very happy to work with him. We made plans to shoot together when he was next in the UK - which happened to be May 2015, less than a week after his eighteenth birthday. How's that for a coming-of-age celebration?
I normally prefer to work with kinksters who are a little older, simply because I value emotional maturity and experience in the people I shoot with. I think the common fetish for "barely 18" performers in porn is partly based on the idea that young performers are vulnerable, and so it's easier to take advantage of them and push their limits. I find this sleazy and totally unethical, and I'd always much rather work with older players who know their own minds and are able to look after themselves. It's important to me that the performers I hire can take responsibility for their own limits and communication, are experienced enough players to know their bodies and their preferences, and are secure in their decision to appear in fetish porn - because once you've done it, there's no going back.
When I met Tai, however, he exploded all of my preconceptions. Although a teenager, he has a rock solid sense of his kinky identity, and he's been exploring his interest in private for years. He is calm, confident, intelligent, self-reliant, and very emotionally mature. So at eighteen and a few days, Tai officially beats Talia Lane to the position of youngest performer on Dreams of Spanking - and yes, we do have his ID on file to prove it!
We put a date in the diary, and meanwhile Tai and I exchanged emails discussing his interests and preferences. But by March this year, when I needed to start firming up plans, I already knew that ATVOD were investigating Dreams of Spanking and that I was likely to have to stop updating the site for a duration of several months while my appeal was underway. I had lots of scenes already shot starring Fauni, Mike, Talia and David and others which I wasn't going to be able to publish, so there was absolutely no point spending money and energy shooting more material that might never see the light of day.
Towards a cinematic style
Meanwhile, I'd attended the British Fetish Film Festival in February and the Berlin Porn Film Festival last October, and I'd been thinking an awful lot about shooting styles, production values, and the budget and time constraints under which I was shooting.
Over five years I have developed a shoot style that produces one 10-15 minute spanking film per hour, in a remarkably stress free environment, with plenty of breaks. This is based on improvised scenes filmed live by one or two handheld camera operators, with perhaps some close-ups or cutaways to enhance anticipation in the build up to the spanking scenes, but otherwise shot with as few cuts as possible - unless the performers themselves need to cut. Lightweight, consumer-grade cameras make handheld shooting manageable without the camera operators getting too tired, and using auto-focus allows us to get visual variety by roaming around the scene shooting different angles, rather than stopping the action to reset each shot.
This non-disruptive shooting style allows the performers to get into an immersive scene space and stay in character, which helps the roleplay flow more smoothly, and also helps the bottom stay in their headspace and makes the spanking itself easier to take. It's a system that Nimue and I have got down to a fine art, and I was pleased that we'd reached a point where we could create nice-looking films within budget, while maintaining a relaxed and fun shoot environment for everyone involved.
The downside of this low-key shooting style is that the resulting films would never achieve the cinematic quality that I was seeing at the film festivals I was going to. I'd had a couple of films rejected from international festivals, presumably because the videography, audio quality and storytelling wasn't up to scratch. I found myself wanting to level up, and see if with a bit more money, time and effort, I could raise my production values and put Dreams of Spanking on the map as a credible producer of cinema-quality films.
So rather than hire Tai for a day shooting a number of improvised ten minute website updates, I decided to use him to do something different. I booked amazing boudoir photographer Matt Christie to help out with the videography - he'd expressed an interest in shooting video last time we shot together, he has a commercial-grade camera and he also had access to an amazing location perfect for the scenario I had in mind.
I started penning ideas for a single 10-15 minute short film. Not five films, or six films, or seven. Just one.
Developing the story
With Tai, I had an articulate and gorgeous masculine-of-center performer with a submissive streak a mile wide, who loved being spanked. I thought about the films I was seeing at festivals, and the lack of beautifully-shot female/male BDSM films shot from a female perspective, with a male submissive who is both beautiful and interesting, and not just a cipher propping up a sexually objectified female dominant. Instead of this I wanted to make Tai the lust object and protagonist of the film, focussing both the lens on his body, and the story on his character's journey.
I started with a fairly traditional plot - a young man applying for a submissive role in the household of an established mistress. I brainstormed ideas for visual storytelling, thinking about ways to focus the storyline on the tension and anticipation Tai's character feels before he takes the plunge towards fulfilling his submissive desires. I considered ways to create an interesting power dynamic between his character and mine. I quickly realised that I'd need a third performer, another submissive serving the mistress - someone to make his arrival at the house feel more formal and more intimidating.
I'd already talked to my friend Eliza Grey about having her on set as a shoot assistant, helping out behind the camera (she had planned to be with us on our shoot in November, but had sadly been unable to make it). I realised she'd be perfect for the role of a bitchy receptionist, enhancing Tai's nerves before his interview with the Madame... and once I'd cast Eliza, the rest of the story fell into place.
Writing the script
Ten days before the shoot, I was hurrying to finish the script on my laptop on the train. I'd never written lines for characters to say before, and I was finding it surprisingly difficult. I'd write a line, then agonise over it. What if Tai doesn't feel comfortable saying that? What if that's not what Eliza would say? I've always made a political point of not putting words in my performers' mouths, and suddenly that was what I was literally doing. At the same time I was all-too-aware that they were going to need to memorise their lines, and time was running out.
I closed my eyes, wrote some lines telling myself they were only placeholders, and sent it off with an apologetic email saying this was a very rough draft, and inviting them to make any changes they wanted. But my anxiety proved unfounded. In the end, bar one wording change, that script was the one we used - and Tai and Eliza rocked it.
Working with a storyboard
A week before the shoot I was on D's sofa after a fetish party, scribbling a 'storyboard' in biro on A4 paper from his printer while my friends chatted around me. After writing the screenplay I had a strong visual image in my mind's eye of what most of the shots would look like - now it was just a case of creating a visual reference so I could communicate my ideas to Matt on the day. I'd visited Matt's location a week ago, so the rooms were fresh in my mind. It was a useful exercise to think through camera angles and compose the shots, but I'm pretty sure it was the crappiest storyboard anyone has ever worked from. The most hilarious of my terrible stick figure drawings was this sketch of Eliza being spanked over my knee and feeling sad about it:
Professional production all round, innit.
The day of the shoot
The shoot day approached. I bought food and props, looked up travel options, packed suitcases, selected implements, printed scripts and release forms. Shortly before the day I realised that I'd inadvertently booked our shoot on the same day as the London Marathon, and the location we were using was only one block away from the route. That meant that not only would transport potentially be disrupted, but the exterior shots would all have a huge amount of background noise. Still, at this late stage there was nothing to be done about it. I booked an 8am taxi, the traffic at that hour was fine, and I was on set at 9am. Matt and I drank coffee and looked through the storyboard, then Tai and Eliza arrived - and it was all go.
Shooting from a script was a totally new experience for me, and a steep learning curve. I'd worked out the best shooting order, shooting the story in as close to chronological order as possible while minimising room and lighting changes. After that it was just a question of staying calm, following the callsheet and taking it one shot at a time.
I was using an external mic for the first time, and was grateful to have Eliza helping out and sharing the responsibility for making sure the mic was a) close enough, b) not in shot, and c) recording each time. She was also an absolute star helping out with moving lights, checking camera batteries and memory cards, making tea and tidying up behind us. A+++, would work with again. Plus it turned out she could seriously act...
It was a full day, perhaps a bit too full - nerves started to fray after a few hours, and everyone was feeling tired by mid-afternoon. The shoot would definitely have been easier with more camera crew or fewer scenes to fit in. After a few hours, Matt noticed a round smudge in the middle of the lens, and wiped it off - but of course there wasn't time to go back and re-shoot the shots we'd already done. By the time we came to shoot the confrontation between Tai and Eliza in the kitchen, everyone was so tired that that scene took about seven takes. Some of the shots ended up out of focus, and we got through so many cans of tonic that I was worried we'd run out!
Editing the film
Still, despite all that, when I came to look at the footage I was pleased to discover that most of it looked how I'd expected. There were a few surprises in the edit - such as that moment when I realised the reverse shot in one dialogue scene crossed the line and was therefore unusable, and was suddenly grateful that we'd shot three angles of that particular scene, even though at the time it felt like overkill. It was a monster of an edit, but satisfying too, sorting through all the footage, plugging it into place, and seeing how the scenes I'd envisioned in my mind played out on camera.
Choosing the music was another daunting prospect - I knew I wanted to avoid re-using the same creative commons soundtracks that you hear time and time again in indie porn, and that meant spending money. But how to start looking? First I worked out where music was needed - in the intro sequence, the montage, and the closing credits, which meant I needed two or three pieces in total. Then I did a rough edit of those sequences so I had a vague idea of how long the music would need to be. After that, I set a day aside to browse SoundDogs, typing in different keywords and playing pieces with my eyes closed, visualing the film, until I hit on a genre that felt right. I realised that for this story my usual taste in piano and cello-dominated classical and film score music wouldn't work - Tai's character needed something moody and masculine, guitar-led, energetic and driving. Finally I whittled down a selection, downloaded some samples and started laying them over the edit to see what worked.
Primarily, this film was intended to be screened at film festivals - which meant that the narrative would have a different structure than standard spanking films. In a film intended for someone to watch while having a wank, you need a carefully paced build-up and pay-off that sustains uninterrupted shots of climactic spanking action for long enough for the viewer to reach orgasm. In a longer film, there might be two of three of these build-ups and climaxes, separated by character-driven story. But at a film festival, the audience are watching to have their minds stimulated, not their genitals. Fast-paced editing is preferable, providing lots of new visual information with every shot. Explicit sequences need to be edited down to the bare minimum necessary to develop the characters and progress the story. So that was a new challenge: cutting the 15 minutes of high quality spanking action in, for instance, Tai's audition scene, down to the three minutes earmarked for it in the festival edit. The only way I was able to do it was by promising myself that I'd release the full, uncut scene as an extended edition on Dreams of Spanking later. But meanwhile the deadline for the Berlin Porn Film Festival was June 30th, so I had to get the shorter edit finished first...
In the end, thankfully, it was finished in time to submit to Berlin, and I'm hopeful that they'll accept it. I'll be submitting it to various other film festivals over the summer as well. I'm really happy with the finished film, and completely honoured to have been trusted with Tai and Eliza's porn debuts - and thrilled that they had a good time.
And that's a wrap!
It was a really long shoot day. We finished the scheduled shots around 7pm, 10 hours after I'd arrived on set. But then we cracked open the champagne and ended up chatting and buzzing on a total high, which led to another two hours shooting performer interviews, and even a behind the scenes caning for Tai when he confessed he still didn't think he'd been spanked enough...
By the time we finally turned the cameras off, sat down for some supper and tidied everything away, the sun had gone down - and it was 11pm before I finally got into a cab. Matt and I had been on set for fourteen hours, Tai and Eliza for thirteen. I am so grateful to the three of them for their enthusiasm, dedication and professionalism. It was a long fucking shoot and everyone put in so much energy and creativity it was kind of overwhelming. Overall, this production cost ten times as much as an average Dreams of Spanking video, but even so I still came away feeling like I hadn't paid people enough for the amount of work they'd put in.
Overall, this was a very satisfying project, and I'm really happy to have it under my belt. But it also taught me a lot about the trade-off that arises when you move towards a more cinematic shooting style. My previous method gave my performers more breaks, less stress and a much more satisfying kink experience. Shooting Houseboy, we did the bare minimum of spanking needed to get the shots I wanted - and stopping to move the camera, check the focus and lighting, consult the storyboard every few seconds made it hard to get immersed into a satisfying spanking headspace. I'm glad I hadn't scripted any particularly hard spanking scenes, because I think severe corporal punishment would be much more emotionally and physically challenging to take in this context.
I hadn't realised it before, but shooting in a more amateur style results in a much more rewarding experience for the performers - with more opportunity for top and bottom to develop an in-scene chemistry, focus on each other rather than the camera, and time for the bottom to sink into a yummy submissive headspace, without constant distractions.
So what can I take away from this? Well, I've learned that shooting in a cinematic style is something I can do, and that's good to know. I've learned that it's hard work, at least ten times as expensive as my usual shooting style, and considerably more time-consuming to produce and edit. It's also exhilarating, exhausting, and very creatively satisfying. I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave it a go, and I'm hopeful that the finished film will be screened in Berlin this year. But I've also learned that I don't want to start shooting this way every time. Perhaps I might be able to put out one cinematic film a year, but this experiment has restored my faith in my usual low-key way of shooting, which it turns out is preferable experience for me and my performers - and a much better environment to ask people to take hard spankings in. Our standard Dreams of Spanking shoots emphasise process over product, and trying something new has re-affirmed my faith in that process.

Just thinking about some of the photos that I have sent to partners and loved ones is enough to stir fear in my heart as well as arousal in my knickers. In general, I rarely send sexy selfies – mainly because I can barely point a camera in the right direction and as a rule I'd like to leave it to the pros. As I'm sure you'll agree, the framing, quality, and sheer raw hotness of Pandora's upskirt shots are far superior to the blurry mess that amateurs like me would produce.
But there's another reason I rarely take them. Having pressed the button to capture the picture, there are always worries about who's going to end up with it, or whether they'll share it with people you don't want them to. And that's before you've even contemplated the possibility that you'll hit 'confirm' on the wrong number and end up sending the picture to your sister/ex/lawyer – anyone other than the intended recipient.
This week's schoolgirl photoset captures all the intense hotness of sending a sexy selfie, combined with the humiliation of getting caught.
The intimacy of the photoset is gorgeously candid: upskirt photos, complete with sheer knickers that leave little to the imagination. A rapid shift from Pandora's girlish poses at the beginning – neat and tidy in school uniform with knee socks and patent heels – to her joyfully sexual poses as she spreads her legs for the camera.
This scenario tackles the fear of being found out: something most of us who've taken sexy selfies will understand. The hammering in your heart as you realise someone else might have seen, and the worry about the consequences...
When Pandora's teacher, D, catches her on the secluded stairwell, school skirt round her waist and knickers on display, it's the worst-case scenario she could imagine. Luckily for us, her punishment is a hand spanking in the corner, followed by an erotically charged thrashing with the cane – hard enough to leave marks that can be seen through her sheer panties.
From the eyes Pandora makes at her teacher - and the swiftness with which he takes advantage of the opportunity to physically dominate her - it's clear that this is more than punishment. It seems that Pandora is hot for her teacher - but does he return her interest, or is he just administering on-the-spot discipline to a very naughty schoolgirl?
The hot teacher/horny student fantasy is an excellent way to relive the excitement of getting caught without actually, you know, getting caught. The 'what if?' here is far sexier than any real life worries, because getting caught with her skirt round her waist and her phone in her hand leads to the punishment of Pandora's dreams. And, judging by the way her teacher is so quick to tell her to bend over - and his insistence on confiscating the sheer panties she's so shamelessly shown off - it's pretty clear that catching her flashing her knickers isn't the worst thing that could have happened to him, either.
If only getting caught was always so satisfactory. Have you ever been caught flashing your bits to take a sexy selfie, or accidentally sent it to the wrong person? Or do you have a happy ending you'd care to share...?
Some people know how to make an entrance. They arrive at a party and do something so memorable that you know you won't forget their name any time soon. Mike Pain's debut on Dreams of Spanking – in which he takes a beating so hard and so thorough it makes my eyes water - is exactly that kind of entrance.
This is one of the more traditional female domination scenes I've seen on Dreams of Spanking, and the story - suggested by Mike himself - is the kind of fantasy I expect many kinksters can relate to. Married man Mike Pain is secretly into BDSM, and femdom in particular. When his friend Pandora Blake teases him about his fashion sense, she discovers that beneath his buttoned-up shirt he's wearing a leather collar... and a bondage harness, and a studded leather thong.
For some, who for whatever reasons prefer to keep their kink secret, this could be a terrifying moment - but this is Mike's fantasy, and in his and Pandora's hands a potentially nightmare scenario turns into an intensely hot tongue-in-cheek femdom porn scene. When Pandora phones Mike's wife, the two ladies are clearly amused as much as angry, and it turns out that both of them share Mike's secret to some extent. Mike's wife asks Pandora to deal with her husband until she can get back to beat him herself.
Mike, in fact, gets exactly what he's been fantasising about – a gorgeous woman beating him black and blue.
Pandora is in full-on femdom mode, giving Mike a thorough bollocking laced with verbal humiliation, and stern admonishments when Mike tries to twist away from the burning strokes of the strap. She takes a gleeful delight in choosing exactly how many strokes to give him, and laying on paddle, strap and cane as hard as she can.
Mike takes the kind of beating that had me wincing in sympathy, as well as shivering with delight. I have to admit that there's a deep and specific joy in the sound a thick leather strap gives when it's whacked with full force onto a bare bottom.
It's rare that a top has the opportunity to hit someone has hard as they can, but Mike's pain tolerance is high. Pandora steps back and leans into each whack with the strap, putting her back into getting exactly that gorgeous 'thwack' sound. As Pandora remarks towards the end of the scene, "You can certainly take a beating."
As for the climax of the punishment - eighteen severe strokes of the cane - watch the behind the scenes video to learn whether they were as hard as Pandora could give - or as hard as Mike could take.
When you've watched the film, please do welcome Mike in the comments. After taking a thrashing this impressive, I think he deserves a very warm welcome to Dreams of Spanking.
Sometimes a lover will whisper a particular fantasy in my ear, and my heart beats extra-fast because it presses exactly the same buttons as fantasies I've had myself in the past. This week's scene is that feeling made flesh.
Alex Reynolds likes edgy scenes and harsh roleplay where there's a struggle or an abuse of authority. She likes disproportionate punishments and begging and screaming and beating.
And so do I.
'Playing Truant' doesn't just float my boat, it's almost measure for measure one of the scenes that's played out in my head ever since... well... ever since I started fantasising.
Paul Kennedy plays an angry, predatory truant officer, who's been watching Alex behave like – his words – a 'little slut.' She skips school and fools around with boys, and he's been watching her, clearly enjoying the show and scheming how to take advantage. He collects enough information that he can not only scold her, but blackmail her to submit to his violent, nasty urges.
As she squeals and begs him to stop, he punishes her far more severely than she deserves – a vicious tawsing across her naked buttocks and oh-so-sensitive thighs.
Alex Reynolds and Paul Kennedy are a couple in real life, and I really appreciate their candid discussion in the performer interviews accompanying this film. Alex explains that this is the kind of scenario she enjoys most – rough scenes where Paul abuses his authority to dish out cruel punishments. Paul's demeanour in the interview is so different from his character in the film that it's clear this sort of role is very different to how he actually is – and both partners explain what they find so liberating, and so rewarding, about exploring these different roles in scene.
Paul's character is certainly a nasty piece of work in this scene, as he strips Alex to the waist and roughly fondles her breasts, before bending her over for the tawse. He frequently shoves a hand between her legs as she squirms away, and grins with evil delight as he paints vivid red stripes onto her bottom and thighs. And in case you're worried, the camera stays on the couple after Pandora calls “cut”, to show Alex snuggling up to her lover, thanking him for bringing her desires to life.
I might start using this film as an instructional video. As someone whose most often-used phrase in bed is 'be mean to me', I've now got this bookmarked so that when I want to show just how mean I can say 'like this'. Beat me like I'm a naughty schoolgirl caught playing truant. Beat me like I'm a helpless young woman entrapped by a very nasty man.
It's not often we get to see a spanking film that shows sexual coercion as well as corporal punishment – and it might make me uneasy if the love Alex and Paul have for each other didn't shine out of the screen. If you are worried, I recommend you watch the interview before you watch the film – it's an in-depth discussion of kinky sexuality by two very articulate, experienced players, who are perfectly comfortable sharing their darker side with each other – and with us.
It's a seriously sexy treat for me to see have two talented performers act out something that's so closely matches one of my own fantasies, and if you're keen on this type of edgy, harsh punishment then I'm sure you'll love it too. From the words Paul chooses to humiliate Alex, to her well-acted misery and fear, there is so much in this scene to love.
I don't think there's any way to end this post other than with a huge thank you to Paul and Alex, for sharing this aspect of their play dynamic, and for such a smoking hot interpretation of the things that happen in my head.
Have you had a similar experience with a particular Dreams of Spanking scene? I love the idea of sharing a specific film with a lover, and saying 'look! This is what my fantasy looks like!' Which scene is your closest match?
Can you tell that Talia Lane and David Weston are a couple in real life? I think it's hard not to, because the whole of their first film together is infused with a close flirtation and a crackling chemistry, which makes their school romance all the more real, and all the more intense.
I get a bit nostalgic about these school moments – when there was a guy I fancied so much I couldn't stop thinking about him in class. A guy who I just needed to touch me. Those stolen moments – kisses and gropes when teachers weren't looking ... sigh.
Talia and David play a couple just like this – horny students with ties askew, shirts untucked, and eyes only for each other. As is to be expected when you're young and hot for someone, they fondle and kiss behind the bike sheds for so long that they miss the start of lessons.
They hardly care, of course – they're far too wrapped up in their own teenage world of giggles and snogs. But this is Dreams of Spanking, after all, so from the moment their lips touch we know they're going to get caught by a strict teacher. Enter Pandora...
Pandora (aka the stern Ms Blake) is formidable in this scene, but then she has to be to keep the pair in line. Talia and David joke around even as Ms Blake explains that they're in for a punishment more severe than the usual detention or lines.
They can't quite bring themselves to believe that she'll put them over her knee for a hand spanking, and as a result their insouciance just gets them into deeper trouble.
Everyone remembers those kids at school who – no matter how stern the teacher – just would not behave. Talia and David in this scene are exactly like that - holding hands and messing around and making exactly the kind of exasperating retorts that teenagers seem to think are oh-so-funny. They play that casual 'you can't touch me' attitude to perfection - to the point where I, as a bit of a meanie, couldn't wait for Pandora to dish out the spanking just to show them she means business.
When she does, Talia's shock and outrage is amazing.
This is Talia's first ever spanking scene - in fact, she says in her interview that it's her first ever proper spanking. David's starred in a few Dreams of Spanking videos before (I particularly enjoyed David's Strict Governess) and he was keen to share the experience with her, and watch her discover why he loves spanking so much.
Taking the behind-the-scenes connection together with the scenario, it's a gorgeous shared moment. I loved seeing the dynamic between the couple as they stay strong against the teacher determined to punish them. Keep watching after the credits for more out-takes, including Talia's infectious giggles - and her genuine reactions to her first ever punishment spanking.
That David and Talia are a real couple serves to highlight one of the best things about this type of joint scene. When two lovers or close friends are punished together, there's an added dynamic: the support and sympathy between the two spankees. There's an amazing example of it in Punishment by Proxy, too, in which Pandora and Jimmy are forced – against their wishes – to actually punish each other.
As David and Talia comfort each other you can see that what started as humiliation is actually making them stronger. Initially David is reluctant to pull down his pants in front of his young girlfriend, but by the end the pair are united in solidarity against their teacher.
Facing the wall and baring their bright red bottoms after their spanking, they exchange shy, loving smiles. You know, I'm not sure they've entirely learned their lesson. Some things are just worth doing, no matter what the punishment.
One of the things I find hottest – whether it's during a kink scene or sex itself – is distraction. Having to perform one task while someone else tries to distract you, or being the one doing the distraction. This can be something really simple, from cleaning the oven (as in last week's playfully sexy Provocative Housework) to reading out loud.
This week, the amazing duo Molly Malone and John Beecroft are back. With their trademark flirtatious chemistry, they act out a spanking scene that's based on a true story. Molly rents the village hall to host kinky workshops, although she hasn't told John, the hall manager, exactly what she's using it for.
Unfortunately, she accidentally leaves a bag behind - and when John looks inside, he finds a book entitled "Curious Pleasures" alongside a selection of even more cuious implements. Molly squirms as he quizzes her about her erotic spanking hobby, deliciously embarrassed at having to explain that her corporal punishment workshops are ... umm... "relationship counselling".
Molly looks like she wants to sink into the floor as John demands to know if her parents know what she's doing - or what if someone took photos? He tells her it's disgraceful to treat it as all fun and games - in his day, punishment was a serious matter, used for discipline. John gives her a choice: accept a real punishment from him, or he'll tell everyone her secret.
It's clear that John is simply itching to have a go with Molly's kinky toys - and as she realises that his motivations aren't as strict as he claims, Molly quickly accepts, and willingly bends over the sofa for a beating.
And this is where the distraction bit comes in: in between lashing her bare bottom with the flogger, John asks Molly to read out passages from the book he found in her bag. An old-fashioned text explaining how some people corrupt corporal punishment to use it for 'carnal purposes', it's perfect to be read aloud by a giggling, teasing Molly.
When John steps things up a notch, and picks up the strap for phase two of Molly's punishment, he insists that she keeps reading it as he beats her. I'll be honest: as soon as the book came out at the start of the scene I'd been waiting for this moment.
I think it's mainly so arousing because the distraction of reading highlights just how hard the strokes are. As each whack lands, we hear a sharp intake of breath, and Molly jerks at the impact, pausing briefly in her recital as she takes a moment to absorb the pain.
Distraction doesn't make the spanking more painful, necessarily – it just makes the pain more apparent. The impact, the involuntary reactions all call delicious attention to that moment when the strap connects with her bare bottom.
With Molly's increasingly teasing comments, it soon becomes clear that John's as kinky as she is. For all his claims about "depravity" and "discipline", it's obvious to Molly, and to us, that John is loving every minute of the experience. And with the gorgeous juxtaposition of Molly's calm, measured reading voice and her gasps as each stroke of the strap leaves its mark, I can't say I'm surprised.
Alongside the element of distraction, I should also mention that I love the whole look of this scene. When Molly takes off her jacket to reveal a tight corset, tiny skirt and leather collar, the contrast between the two is perfect - John as the distinguished disciplinarian, and Molly as the coquettish, cheeky madam. She giggles and flirts, and is clearly delighted that rather than reporting her, John has decided to take an interest in her hobby.
I've said before how much I love the chemistry between Molly and John (and if you keep watching after the credits on this video you'll see more of it in the out-takes). I think one of the best things about spanking performers who are play partners in real life is that everything feels so natural - from the initial reprimands to the order to bend over, the playful flirting and the dialogue. Oh, especially the dialogue.
When he's finished with the strapping, John turns to Molly and declares:
“You may put what passes for your clothes back on.”
I'll be distracted by the thought of that line for a pretty long time to come.
How do you turn someone on using the fewest words possible? No pictures allowed, just words or it's cheating. I think there are a fair few three-word phrases that'd do it for me.
“Remove your knickers,” said in just the right commanding tone, for instance, would get me instantly aroused.
“Open your mouth,” perhaps even more so.
But right up there towards the top of the list would have to be:
When I watch the hot new updates every week for Dreams of Spanking, I try to pick out one or two things about each scene that strike me as particularly arousing. Whether it's the chemistry between the performers, some particularly intense language, or just how perfect someone's bottom looks in a particular position, there's usually one thing that jumps right out at me. This week's is no different: Two guys wrestling.
Brotherly Love features two brand new performers – Seani Love is the gorgeous top, and Ron Beastly is the equally gorgeous and deliciously bratty spankee. They play brothers - Ron, the playful and bratty younger brother and Seani, the older brother who is sick of his sibling sitting around the house doing nothing.
When Seani decides it's time to dish out some physical punishment to Ron to get him into line, Ron struggles against him. The subsequent tussle gives the scene a brilliant physical energy, and the coarse banter (“Brat.” “Fucker.”) only makes it hotter.
Sorry, have I gone on a bit too much about two guys wrestling? I fear I might have. If, like me, this is one of your big turnons, then after you've watched Brotherly Love I'd strongly recommend Male Spankee Wrestle-Off as well. Sebastian Hawley and Michael Darling wrestling over who gets to spank who. It's amazing.
In the meantime, as ever we'd love you to give a really warm welcome to Seani and Ron – when you've watched Seani wrestle Ron over his knee and deliver a humiliating bare bottom spanking, do come and say hello in the comments. And let me know, because I'm curious: what three-word phrase would instantly turn you on? “Bare bottom spanking”, perhaps? “Twelve cold strokes?” Or something I haven't even thought of yet...
The first spanking event I ever went to was a school night. I stared longingly as guys dressed as teachers and prefects lashed out with canes, slippers, and their bare hands. This wasn't an accident: I chose that event because of my deep and abiding love of school scenes. I wanted my 'public spanking' cherry to be popped in one of the places I knew I would most enjoy it.
I love everything about school roleplay: the uniforms, the authority, the wide variety of implements. The cold, hard wood of the school desk under your stomach when you bend over it for a beating. Standing in a corner while you think about your punishment. Having to call someone 'Sir' or 'Miss' as they thrash you. And, of course, although I'm not nearly as good at taking a caning as some of the performers here on Dreams of Spanking, there's something irresistible about the whishing sound of the cane.
Ahem. Where was I? Oh yes – The Schoolgirl's Revenge.
This scene barely needs an introduction, but I'll give you an overview so you can fully appreciate the total mess I was while I was trying to write this. John Beecroft plays a sleazy old headmaster, enjoying a spanking scene with now grown-up Molly Malone. After giving her an old-fashioned, knickers-down hand spanking in the spirit of play, the scene suddenly takes a turn for the really fucking dark. It transpires that Molly is an ex-pupil of John's, and has some blackmail photographs of him on hand. As John protests in shock, Molly explains that she plans to release the photos to the papers and get him into serious trouble. Unless, of course, he submits to her revenge...
Her plans involve putting John in exactly the same situation that Molly's character was in at school: dressed in a school uniform – including tight white cotton knickers – being beaten over the spanking bench with a variety of implements, and being perved over, humiliated and objectified. Deliciously, she insists on him calling her 'Sir' throughout the proceedings, adding an extra badass touch to the genderbending role-reversal.
I'm not even going to tell you the rest of the story. Just watch it. This video contains so many of the school scene hot buttons. School uniforms, authority, barked commands, the slipper... I could go on forever.
I bloody love scenes between Molly and John (if you liked this then 'Slight Damage to the Rear End' stars the same duo and may well float your boat too) because they're regular play partners and not only have a brilliant rapport, but a mutual passion for roleplay. They're not just playing a scene, they are the scene. And you can tell that they both love it – one-upping each other with backstory, references to each other's past and – of course – the traditional reprimands and apologies that give school roleplay an edge over any other kind.
“Discipline's just what you need.”
“This will hurt me more than it hurts you.”
“The last stroke is always the hardest.”
Beyond the hotness of the cross-dressing, the slipper, and a caning so hard it draws blood, there's a deep horniness to this scene. Molly talks about how her old headmaster used to take far too much pleasure in beating her and her classmates. How she'd see him growing hard and notice the shape of him through his suit trousers. As for revenge - she makes sure she milks every last drop of satisfaction out of the experience, and delights in every cry of pain when she administers six vicious cane strokes.
Be warned, though: this video might influence you a bit more than you'd like. After watching the video for the first time I turned my wardrobe upside-down, hunted around the house for nearly an hour, before finally finding an old pair of slippers. I'm going to leave them somewhere visible around the house in the hope that my partner feels inspired to dish out some school-style punishment of his own.
The Schoolgirl's Revenge: inspirational, in all the best ways.
When Pandora sent me Her Married Sister to watch, she gave it a content warning: “Our sympathies are with Maddy's character, Dreams of Spanking does not endorse patriarchal power structures ;)” I couldn't help but laugh. That's one of the things I love about this site - Pandora takes traditional fantasy scenarios and creates playful, beautiful, hot videos that subvert these old tropes rather than reinforcing them.
In this vintage spanking film, the 1950s context means that although it's terribly unfair, we know that Christy is within her rights at the time to dish out punishment to Maddy. The hotness comes just as much from the underlying power play as from the gorgeous bottoms.
In 'Her Married Sister' Christy Cutie is eager to exert authority over her older sister Maddy Marks. Now that she's married, Christy considers herself to be in charge of household matters, and she thinks her sister must be punished for giving orders to the staff.
Maddy is not just upset and humiliated – she's outraged! Although she submits to the spanking, she protests and squeals with frustration throughout. Of the pair, she's clearly the one most keen to break out of the traditional roles – like Mad Men's Peggy Olsen she's raging against an old-fashioned system that gives married women greater respect.
I sympathise - it must be hard enough having to put up with old-fashioned sexist views that say a woman is more valuable when she's attached to a man, but to have to let your younger sister put you over her knee and spank you? I'd be as unhappy as Maddy is.
These two ladies are absolutely stunning - Maddy with gorgeous red hair and a perfectly-shaped bottom, tall and willowy in beautiful contrast with Christy Cutie's luscious curves. They're not just different in looks, though – from the way the sisters bicker back and forth you can tell they have very different outlooks. Maddy's outrage is made more exciting by the fact that Christy is clearly revelling in the rules that give her the upper hand, giggling and smiling like the cat that's got the cream. Each smack on her older sister's bare bottom underlines her new-found authority.
I'd continue the Mad Men analogy, but although Christy's got the gorgeous looks of a Joan, I'm not sure any character in the series is as delighted with the old-fashioned status quo as Christy seems to be! Not only does she think it's her right to spank her older sister, but she's thoroughly enjoying every stinging smack. From her arrogant assertion that 'I'm in charge' to her giggles and grins when her sister squirms under her firm hand, I'm certain this won't be the last time Christy insists on giving her sister a bare bottom spanking.
