I was tickled pink when a Dreams of Spanking member sent me this gem. It's a cryptic crossword he's created, themed on spanking - and Dreams of Spanking in particular. How clever is that? I thought it would be a perfect game for a leisurely Sunday morning. Here's his explanation:
As well as being into spanking I'm also quite a crossword enthusiast (two great English vices perhaps). Over recent months one or two cryptic crossword setters in the paper I read have on occasion been writing some clues and solutions which include innuendo or double entendre. These themed crosswords are the sort of thing that get used for holiday specials and the like. Of course in a national paper this can only go so far. I thought it might be fun if this went a step or two further and had a go at putting together a rather more forthright spanking-themed crossword. The result was the puzzle below.
As an extra help, in the clues I've underlined the definition parts and left the cryptic bits without underlines. This allows the puzzle to be done as a non-cryptic ordinary crossword hopefully. Not all clues are fetish related, nor all answers but there are a fair few.

This is so cool. I really do love the little community that is growing around this site, and I keep on being more and more impressed by what an intelligent and interesting bunch you are.
If you want to play, please leave a reply in the comments with your guesses. You can print the crossword out and scribble on it first if you like - just download a jpg version here. The correct answers will be published next Sunday. I hope you have fun with it - I'm tempted to have a go myself!
At the end of a day shooting M/M spanking videos, I thought it would be fun to unwind with something lighter. I'd had the idea of a Dreams of Spanking wrestling shoot for a little while, and then it turned out that Sebastian Hawley was a competitive Varsity wrestler. Michael Darling didn't have similar experience, but he did have a shiny lycra costume, and he was more than willing to be shown the ropes.
I decided to indulge myself with a bout of female-gaze, spanking-oriented, all-male wrestling - winner spanks loser! The boys put in impressive performances, especially given both of them had colds that day, and the resulting film has already brought me a fantastic amount of glee.
Here's the blurb: Contestants Michael DARLING vs Sebastian HAWLEY fight for the right to spank in the first ever Dreams of Spanking male spankee wrestle-off! Pandora Blake presents a best out of three bouts, with extra points for landing smacks on each other's arses during each round, as well as the traditional points for single or double shoulder pins. Referee Thomas Cameron keeps the score. Round ends on a three second count of a double shoulder pin, or after 120 seconds, whichever happens first.
Winner spanks loser: after best out of three, the loser bends over for a number of swats equal to the total point count of the winner.
Wearing only tight lycra, Darling and Hawley grapple in a tangle of limbs, bottoms frequently uppermost and providing tempting targets for those all-important, points-worthy spanks. The stakes are high and passions are higher as the tension mounts.
This one-of-a-kind video includes 15 full blooded swats with a wooden sports paddle - but who will spank who?
If you like this, you might enjoy Kink's male wrestling site Naked Kombat. It's a bit more hardcore than the above effort, both in terms of the standard of the wrestling, and the action. Naked Kombat are just concluding their Summer Smackdown Tournament, in which contestants compete for sexual domination. Spanking is definitely a part of it - but that's just the beginning.
