After a quiet year, I have some big news.

Chelsea Poe and Blake in queer porn film Velvet Touch

I filmed this scene in March with queer porn stars Chelsea Poe and Courtney Trouble. Here's what I wrote after the shoot:

I’m stretching my creative wings again with some new queer porn collaborations. Last weekend I filmed a scene with Courtney Trouble and Chelsea Poe with me and Chelsea performing together, which was a dream come true. I have a massive porn crush on Chelsea and we had so much fun. Our scene was (of course!) very kinky and involved butch/femme dynamics, spanking, flogging, makeouts, Chelsea making me squirt everywhere with her fingers and tongue (she kept asking me to cum on her tits, which I’ve never done before - it was very horny) and me sitting on and fucking her face with my cock until we were both drenched in jizz. Chelsea had to hop in the shower afterwards to rinse my cum out of her hair. It was so great to connect with her and I hope we get to work together again.

Courtney, who was our videographer, was so great to work with and made everything super easy. They were warm, sweet and welcoming, delightfully enthusiastic about my gender expression, and helped me get over my nerves. I stopped getting regular pre-shoot anxiety ages ago, but it was a bit scary shooting with two porn icons whom I’ve admired from afar for years. I’m so so glad to have worked with them both and can’t wait to release the finished scene, which is a collaboration and will be distributed through QueerPorn.tv, Dreams of Spanking and other channels.

It's coming. And so are we...

The ultimate school bully fantasy

Sometimes I watch a spanking film and realise halfway through that I should probably be wearing headphones. The crisp smacking sounds of a particularly thorough beating, or the squeals of a protesting character, echo around the room and I belatedly realise that someone might be able to hear. Then there are the films which are so thoroughly absorbing I forget about headphones, and it’s only after the credits roll that I remember I have neighbours. This was one of the latter.

Pandora plays the school bully, and Ten Amorette the innocent schoolgirl who refuses to hand over her lunch money. What ensues is a fast-paced bondage takedown, involving girl-on-girl wrestling, spanking, struggling, and a harsh thrashing with the strap.

Pandora and Ten have an amazing chemistry, as evidenced by the fact that they can play scenes at such different ends of the roughness spectrum. This week’s spanking video couldn’t be more different in tone from the caring, erotic spanking in ‘The Surprise Present’ - that one started with a sensual flogging and ended with kisses and caresses, whereas this is rough, angry and aggressive.

I’m biased, because many of my teenage fantasies involved the idea of being punished by a prefect or older school student for some imagined or invented slight, but holy God this scene is hot. Two schoolgirls in matching sexy uniforms – white knee socks, black patent heels, and tiny short skirts – having a ferocious schoolgirl catfight that ends with the dominant one wrestling the other to the floor and stripping her skirt and knickers, and giving her a sound spanking...

It's hot not just for the dynamic between Pandora and Ten - which is smoking - or for the school uniforms complete with tiny skirts, tight shirts, and ties that are used to leave Ten bound and gagged on the floor. Or for the speed - the swift movements with which Pandora throws Ten to the ground, the struggle, the wrestling, the conflict. The extra-hot touches, like Pandora's hand clamped over Ten's mouth, smothering her cries, or the harsh slap to her face that tells her who's got the power.

It’s uniquely sexy because of the combination of all these things - because of the sheer number of knicker-moistening triggers that are effortlessly tossed into one scene. The cruelty. The resistance. The humiliation. The vicious strokes of the leather strap.

It's just the whole damn fantasy.

No beasts were harmed in the making of this scene

Ron Beastly lives up to his name this week, because in our latest film he plays an actual wild beast – growling, furry, dangerous and almost impossible to tame.

This scene is a pretty rare thing – a kink that's almost totally new to me. But the more I think about it, and google around beast porn and beast sex play, the more of it I find.

Beast porn has a pretty long and colourful history, and when you start looking you'll find it in a fair few places. From Marian Engel's famous 1976 novel 'Bear' (in which a librarian falls in love with, and is ravished by, an actual bear) to tamer modern hints, like the sexy werewolves in the Twilight books. I know it's not really on to mention Twilight, but I'm throwing it in there because it's surprising just how often particular kinks bubble up in our popular culture.

In fact, when you start looking for it, there's plenty of beast porn on the internet, but most of the fantasies are either animated or slashfic (there's plenty of Beauty and the Beast porn written by eager online writers, for example) – it's rare to be able to watch a beast fantasy played out on screen by real people.

Ron makes a perfect beast – partly because, with his furry body draped in more furs, and chained up in a sleeping pose, he looks every inch the slumbering creature. But more so because beast play is one of Ron's own fantasies. He suggested the idea for this scene, and so it's his own desires that are played out – giving him the chance to be the beast that he fantasises about.

As Seani Love tries to tame him, he's whipped, collared, and led around the room on all fours. He's even fed strips of meat from a bowl, as his master alternates the food treats with whippings in an attempt to make the beast behave.

Ron's own take on the scene can be found on his blog here – and it's well worth a read, to get a glimpse inside his head as he's performing as 'the beast.'

Next we did a scene that was a suggestion from me, in which I was a beast that was captured by a magician who wanted to harness my power to use to his own ends. I really got into the performance, though it got pretty intense for me, partly because it was very physical and partly because there were a couple of moments where it felt very real. I realised that, while it was fun to let the beast out of me, I really don’t want to be doing scenes where they are punished and subdued. I would really like to do a scene that was a kind of sequel to this, where the magician’s wife/daughter/whatever finds me tied up, cowering and subdued, then unties me and encourages me to be wild and to ravage her in a rather exciting and filthy manner (if anyone wants to shoot this let me know!). I was a little bit shaken afterwards, but the after care was awesome, with Pandora giving me a marvelous happy spank then feeding me carrot sticks and hummus while I was curled up on her lap (do all directors provide this service?).

The happy aftercare spanking Ron mentions was also captured on film, and if you're interested you can watch it here.

Ron's proposed follow-up, in which the beast is released from submission, and encouraged to ravish the kindly person who's released him, brings the fantasy neatly back round to the focus of much of the slashfic and other beast porn that I found in my research. Beast fantasy seems, for the most part, to eroticise the wild, untameable nature of the beast. The darker things that can be done by creatures that have no moral agency, no code, and which are essentially untameable.

I like the fact that this scene is a bit ambiguous as to whether the magician succeeds in taming the beast. He can whip and punch the creature into submission, put on a collar and lead and to all intents and purposes look like he's subdued it, but ultimately we can tell from Ron's growls and snarls that he's still a wild animal. Perhaps a wild animal just looking for a chance to let his instincts take over again...

Power struggles, cat fights and filthy talk

One of the things that turns 'sexy' into 'oh God that's so filthy I can barely control myself' is dirty talk. Someone getting beaten: arousing. Someone getting called a filthy bitch while they're beaten? Hotter than the sun.

In this latest scene, Pandora and Ms Vixxxen take that dirty talk principle, multiply it by a thousand and add some extras that send shivers down my spine: hair pulling, resistance, cat fighting. It's almost as if they reached into the mind of the sexually frustrated goth kid I used to be and taken words, actions and a hardcore industrial/grunge porn set directly from my own fevered fantasies.

I should admit from the start: I'm a total sucker for the grungy punk look which Vix wears so beautifully. Her pale skin and 'fuck you' hair is very much my kind of thing, and works so perfectly - pushed up against a wall in an industrial setting with chains, a bare concrete floor, the works. Pandora, in a tight black dress and hold-ups, is the perfect femme complement to the butch boi that Vix plays. The pair clearly enjoy gender play - Pandora asks Vix if she's a "good girl" or a "good boy", and Vix retorts "Boy! Just look at me. Of course I'm a boy!"

In 'Bitch', Pandora and Ms Vixxxen have a phenomenally intense fighting dynamic, sparring like alley cats as they grab and pull at each other's hair and clothes.

I particularly liked watching Pandora slap Vix's face, and the moment when she turns her around and shoves her face right up against the wall. Vix struggles and fights back, but you can tell that she is clearly enjoying being 'forced' to do something she obviously really wants.

As well as being hot for its own sake, the verbal (as well as physical) fight is a gorgeous example of how to do negotiation sexily. That back-and-forth flirting, the struggle for dominance, is one of the core things I love about spanking itself, and Vix and Pandora use it as a tool to turn each other on: “Do you want this? How do you like that?” - all the things I like partners to ask me in the bedroom. Especially if they're grabbing me with lustful enthusiasm, as Pandora and Vix are here - teasing and slapping each other, with Vix playfully resisting as Pandora's grows more determined to establish control.

Finally, of course, I just love the torrent of filthy words. These queer grrls talk dirty - everything in this scene is punctuated by 'fuck you's and other angry curses, spat with a vehemence that heightens the intensity of what's happening. It's one thing to watch someone getting whacked with a paddle while gripping a chain on the wall (in itself incredibly hot, obviously - I guarantee you'll agree when you see the way Vix grabs the chain to brace herself), and quite another to feel the pain with them as they bite out "bitch" or "cunt".

Vix and Pandora clearly deeply enjoy this back-and-forth power struggle - every stinging smack or slap of the paddle prompts curses from Vix, telling Pandora she's a "bully", and Pandora doesn't hold back either, smugly replying "Yep - I'm the school bully you always dreamed of fucking".

There's no recourse to traditional spanking talk here - no calm 'thank you's as Vix counts off the strokes. Instead it's "One: fuck you. Two: fuck you, you bitch." The anger is as hot as the pain itself, if not hotter.

Strap-ons, birching, and spanking games

Well, I'm back from my week in the US, connecting with my kinky chosen family and getting up to all sorts of adventures at Boardwalk Badness Weekend. I have lots of spanking and travel-related stories to tell, and I'll be posting them over at my personal blog over the next few days.

Meanwhile Dreams of Spanking has been kept updated, with a video and a photogallery last week, and a brand new scene that I published from my hotel room in Atlantic City. We've got a mixture of new F/M and F/F scenes for you including sexy strap-on domination, historical birching, and a hilarious unscripted spanking card game.

On Your Knees has received a lot of positive attention so far, and it's not surprising when you consider that this photo gallery features the stunning Ten Amorette in red lipstick, high heels and a lacy dress that shows off her body to perfection.

Not only that, but this lesbian domination scene includes the riding crop, face slapping, and making Ten suck my big purple strap-on. Hot!

On Your Knees

Ten kneels on the bed wearing high heels and a dress that reveals more than it hides. Pandora caresses her body and teases her with her strap-on, smearing it across Ten's lips. When Ten refuses to suck it, Pandora slaps her face and shoves her over the end of the bed, then spanks her with her hand and lays on strokes with the whippy riding crop. Finally compliant, Ten accepts a kiss, and Pandora's cock.

In The Undergardener's Birching, Sebastian went well above and beyond the call of duty in the face of the English weather, lowering his underwear for 30 strokes of the birch on a cold bottom.

The Undergardener's Birching

Spotted sneaking back below stairs after a night out drinking, a lowly undergardener is taken to task by the stern Housekeeper. He has disgraced the household, and the punishment that follows is no more than he deserves.

Braced against the trunk of a tree in the grounds where he works, Sebastian bares his bottom for 30 stinging strokes of the birch. By the end of this short, sharp film Sebastian's bottom is striped with vivid welts. A tantalising glimpse into the strict discipline of a bygone age.

Running at only eight minutes long, this is a "short sharp shock" style punishment film, with some scolding and 30 stinging strokes of the birch, hard enough to draw blood, crammed into that timeframe. Sebastian had always wanted to try the birch and he took it manfully, but it was nearly freezing on an English December day and even we aren't sadistic enough to want to make the experience last any longer than necessary.

Afterwards we bundled him up nice and warm and he snuggled up on the sofa for some well-deserved recovery time.

Finally, our latest update Ring of Fire showcases likeminded switches Molly Malone, Nimue Allen and myself in a fun and frivolous spanking game that gets increasingly intense as the play goes on.

Ring of Fire

Join three likeminded switch ladies in high heels and 50s dresses for fun and frolics in this self-indulgent spanking card game. With four implements and 52 cards dictating the play at random, the result is an hour-long, candid, uncut, unscripted spankstravaganza! Includes a total of over 350 strokes of hand, tawse, strap and cane.

No-one watching this film can have any doubt that these three ladies just adore giving and receiving corporal punishment for the sheer joy of it.

The rules of the game are as follows: take a pack of cards, and spread them out in a circle. Choose four implements and assign each suit (hearts, diamonds, spades, clubs) to an implement - in our case, hand, tawse, strap and cane. Take it in turns to draw a card, youngest goes first, and each turn the number of the card defines the number of strokes from the implement assigned to that suit.

Punishment is given by the player on your left, but when a Jack is drawn, this swaps to the person on your right, until another Jack is drawn. When you draw a Queen you remove an item of clothing. Aces are a "waterfall" - form a circle and the player whose turn it is starts spanking. The spanking is passed around the circle, and no-one can stop until the first player stops.

The first player to draw a King receives 6 strokes of the first suit (ie hand) from each player; the second King is 6 of the hand and 6 of the tawse from each player, the third King is 6 each of hand, tawse and strap, and the player who draws the final King receives 6 strokes of every implement from every other player.

Ring of Fire, starring Molly Malone, Nimue Allen and Pandora Blake

We played with three of us, which meant we were all very active, both topping and bottoming - if you had more players you would get a longer rest between turns. But the more players you have, the more extreme the King cards become, so think carefully before starting a game of ten players!

The total play time was almost exactly 1 hour, and including the pre-game negotiation and after-game hugs, this film is an uninterrupted, uncut 71 minutes of non-stop spanking action, friendship and hilarity. We were totally sober but as the endorphines kicked in we all became high and giggly on spanking, and the game proved to be exactly the right length as by the end we could barely wield a cane!

If this sounds like fun to you, I can assure you that the reality is even more brilliant than you might imagine. There's no winning and no losing, just mutual give and take of spanking for the sheer joy of it. Round up some switchy mates and give it a try, we can highly recommend it. And if you do, stop back and leave a comment to tell us how it went.

Ten's wet strapping

I'm really excited about our latest spanking film starring Ten Amorette, 'Filthy Girl'. Excited is a bit of a euphemism there - before I sat down and edited it properly the raw footage of this scene was my night-time watching of choice, put it that way!

You can read about the story behind this scene here and here.

Ten and I have great chemistry, and had previously indulged our mutual attraction in a sizzlingly explicit video for her clips store entitled Pandora's Little Spank Slut:

On our recent Dreams of Spanking shoot I wanted to continue the themes of erotic punishment and lesbian dominance and submission. I decided to combine these ideas with a viewer request for a wet shower strapping.

Here's the free video trailer:

Filthy%20Girl

Filthy Girl

On a dirty lesbian weekend, I give my lover Ten a rude awakening, dragging her out of bed and shoving her under the shower. I've decided she's a filthy slut who needs cleaning up! I soap Ten's perfectly curved body and spank her round bottom until it's red and glowing.

The water turns Ten's satin nightie and white cotton knickers clinging and see through, and Ten quickly learns that being strapped with heavy wet leather stings so much more. But those aren't the only things getting wet in this steamy girl-girl spanking scene that includes breast slapping, hair pulling, teasing Ten's nipples with the wet leather, and much more...


As well as the obvious sex appeal of Ten being wet, slippery and spanked, there's something really erotic about watching the wet leather strap smack against wet skin. The flying water droplets make the impact that much more dramatic.


Click on the images to view full size HD screengrabs.

On a geekier note, I'm really happy with how well my camera captured this scene. The water running down Ten's curves and the spray created by each stroke came out a lot more clearly than I've expected. To show it off to best effect I've upped the video quality of the MP4 download of this scene to a bitrate of over 3000kbps.

For the first time, I've also published full resolution HD screengrabs rather than resizing them for web, so you can see every detail in crisp definition at 1920x1080 pixels. I had a little difficulty choosing screengrabs for this film, there were just so many amazing visuals, so the image gallery contains 90 hand-picked sreen captures. A little excessive for a 16 minute video perhaps, but if you click on the above samples and take a look, you'll see why I was spoiled for choice!

Members can also view the behind the scenes video accompanying this film, which includes a certain amount of footage of Ten and I splashing each other in the shower and giggling. Why yes, we do enjoy our work, why do you ask ;)

Love, lust and a leather belt

I'm still a bit behind on my blogging, but I'm going to bump our latest photoset to the top of the queue just because.

This is the second ever hardcore scene I've made, and it was shot on the same day as the first one, Snip Snip, with our good friend Tricia behind the camera.

D and I played this scene straight after Snip Snip, and it was significantly less staged; I'd known more or less what I'd wanted out of the scissors scene, but for this one we just moved the mirrors from D's bedroom into his living room, where we had a bit more space to play with, and improvised. All I knew was that I wanted to capture something of D's and my sexual relationship, a candid glimpse into our real life play. Mirrors, high heels and leather belts are all recurring features. (The bookcase porn is fairly emblematic, too.)

D and I looked at these photos together in chat this evening, and aside from a bit of light-hearted self-deprecation, we both enjoyed going through the finished gallery. He particularly liked the frequency with which we grin at each other in these photos (no serious BDSM porn here!); the scratches on my back by which he had marked his ownership; and the interesting effect of seeing himself reflected in the mirror, but not in the foreground.

I complimented him on his good belting action, ably photographed by Tricia, and told him how hot it was to see his erection tenting his jeans while he thrashes me. I also enjoyed the erotic subtlety of the photos in which our fucking is not visible in the foreground; only glimpsed in the mirror, out of focus.

My hope is that these photos express genuine love, lust and affection in a real life dominant/submissive power exchange. They also feature a far wider range of activities than most scenes on this site (as the tag list suggests!). From foot kissing to cock worship; the way D wraps the belt around my throat and uses it to control my breathing and movements as he kisses me, slaps and licks my breasts, and guides my head to his cock; being spanked with that wooden ruler over the knee, colouring not only my upraised bottom but my tender inner thighs as he spreads my legs and slowly smacks his way up each one, his other hand pressing into my wetness.

D and I very much enjoyed looking through these photos together, and are inspired to organise another couple shoot. (I'm still not sure he's comfortable appearing on video, and don't want to pressure him, but perhaps one day he'll surprise me.) I think this photo gallery encapsulates something real, and very hot, about our relationship. I hope you enjoy this glimpse into our intimate kinky lives.

Whole body flogging

I've just uploaded a photo set which I associate with a lot of happy memories, in which D strings me up from a high timber beam on my tiptoes and whips me all over my body with the flogger.

Abducted, held captive in an echoing barn, Pandora is stripped naked, her wrists bound. Shivering, she waits. Sooner or later the man will visit her and take his pleasure, pressing her up against the wall. She does not know how long she's been here, but she's learned not to resist.

He strings her up from the ceiling on her tiptoes, and punishes her with the whip. She twists and struggles, unsteady. No part of her body is spared; he lashes her back, her buttocks, her thighs and stomach and breasts. Afterwards, she is made to kiss the whip as if thanking him.

She will be made to kiss other things, too. And in time, she will learn to feel truly grateful.

The flogger's thongs are square and leather, both stingy and heavy, with a vicious bite in the tips. Used on the back and buttocks it makes me jump, but on the sensitive skin of my tummy, sides and breasts it's unbearable.

Despite the pain, I loved every second of shooting this scene. Having enough height to be properly tied upright, with my arms and calves straining to support my weight, was utterly delicious, and left my naked body all the more vulnerable to D's attentions.

The mood was set when he strode across the barn, boots ringing on the wooden floorboards, to where I was waiting in the corner; hauled me up by my bound wrists and shoved me against the wall, one of his hands lifting and pinning my wrists and the other starting to explore my helpless body. His face was very close to mine, but he didn't say a word. My senses were filled by the weight and scent of his leather trenchcoat, the solidity of his clothed body pressing against my naked one, and what his free hand was doing.

It was very, very hot. Although we were playing with consent and pretending that I was unwilling, I was helplessly turned on throughout the shooting of Captive ... and I suspect D was too.

Psychic Weapon 'C'

Our new film Psychic Weapon 'C' is one for the sci-fi and thriller fans. Those of you who wanted to see a video version of our Interrogation photoset may also enjoy it.

Officer Julia Danby is researching Psychic Weapon 'C', dubbed 'the Cuckoo', a dangerous telepath involved with one of the criminal factions she is investigating. She doesn't yet know how his powers work: specifically, that his ability to violate people's minds and rip information out of an unwilling victim depends on them being in pain. However, she's about to experience this phenomenon first hand.

Tom gives an outstanding performance as the Cuckoo, and I had great fun with Officer Danby's strong, stoic character who fights fear with laughter and holds out at long as she can. It was also lovely to be able to work with two other actors to create a more dynamic, complex scene. This is Ludwig's first appearance on the site, and I think it might also be his first time co-topping with his mate and co-blogger Kaelah in a spanking video.

Kaelah and Ludwig have written a behind-the-scenes report about the shoot. Here's what they have to say about playing a pair of ruthless criminal goons (Ludwig's comments are in bold):

If you are a geek like me, with a love for science fiction / mystery series, you probably already noticed that the scene is inspired by Fringe. I don't usually pay attention to what is on TV, but Fringe is one of the very few TV series I have ever followed. Actually, I had just recently discovered it when Pandora, Kaelah and I were exchanging brainstorming emails about what to do at our upcoming shoot together. So it was kind of funny when Pandora brought up the idea of doing a Fringe-themed clip. Do I know the series, she asked? Absolutely, and I was all excited about the prospect. Kaelah did not know Fringe, but she liked the idea of playing a goon-type character, and she had other, no less fitting associations in mind...

When Pandora told us about the storyline, the first thing that came to my mind were some pictures inspired by Men in Black. Three dark figures, appearing from nowhere, doing their job swiftly and without any mercy, before finally disappearing into the shadows as quickly as they had turned up. The only possible problem which I told Ludwig the evening before the shoot was: "Don't you think it's a bit weird that the two of us as Germans are supposed to play cruel goons who assault a British investigator?" - "We are not Germans, we are just some goons", Ludwig answered, "and this is not an idea to make fun of."

The next day, Tom came up with a suggestion: "How about you two guys speaking German? Different languages make the scene more interesting and edgy, because this way Pandora's character won't be able to understand what her captors are talking about." I laid back and waited for Ludwig to reply. And he did: "Great idea! It also looks much more like a big international conspiracy then." As you can imagine, I was mildly irritated by this reply, okay, actually I was completely stunned. Ludwig grinned and told me that he found the idea much better now, since it had been Tom's suggestion this time. With a boyfriend like that you really don't need any enemies. Joking aside, actually I think that Ludwig was really attracted by this international thing, especially because Tom as our leader was supposed to be a native speaker of English who nonetheless instructed his goons in German.

When Tom came up with his suggestion, I liked the idea that the three of us - Tom, Kaelah and me - would be communicating in German. Not only would it add to the confusion for Pandora's character, it also instantly, and in a simple yet effective way, created the notion of a menacing, international conspiracy. Here is Pandora's character, getting assaulted by three figures. The leader is obviously an Englishman, but he has two German henchmen with him. In the context of a Fringe-inspired scene, I find that a lot more interesting than three assailants with the same background.

We did some rehearsals of the scene beforehand, so that everyone would know where to stand and what to do during the actual shoot. Pandora, who had just directed my severe caning which we had filmed earlier that day, found out that it was really challenging to switch from director mode into bottom mode, especially given the edginess of the scene. She asked for a short break after a little misunderstanding between Ludwig and her, in order to get into the right mindset for the scene. When we continued, we decided that it was better to do the scene a bit less rough than we had initially planned to make sure that Pandora had a chance to get into the scene step by step. Since this was the first time for me to top anyone else than Ludwig, I probably was a bit over-cautious from that point on. I definitely didn't want to give Pandora any negative experience, so I was always a bit hesitant and only shifted up a gear when I felt that Pandora was ready for it.

Before we started, Pandora told me that she wanted the initial struggle with Kaelah and me to be "really physical". What I missed, however, was her request to merely simulate the struggle while we were practicing the scene ahead of the filming. Among all the other stuff we were talking about, that detail escaped my attention. So, during the practice run, I already handled Pandora in a rather physical way, at a time when she was not expecting it yet. I felt sorry for the misunderstanding and apologised to Pandora, but she said no hard feelings, these things can happen. The downside of it all was that, once we got around to actually filming the scene, Kaelah and I were probably a bit over-cautious. It is difficult to find exactly the right spot between being too brutal and too fake in a physical struggle, especially when playing / filming with someone for only the second or third time.

My headspace during the filming itself was ambiguous as well, in a very fascinating way. One part of me was focussed on getting everything right for the camera and making sure that Pandora was safe and feeling okay. The other part, though, very much enjoyed the freedom of being someone who obeyed orders without scruple, not bothered with any hindering emotions. I was just doing my job, swiftly and efficiently. Hey, I didn't even have a name! When we had discussed about the languages, I had already realised that I didn't have much intention to talk at all. And that's exactly how it was during the scene. The mindset of silently following orders proved to be a very peaceful one. Maybe because it was so different from my normal being (and definitely something I wouldn't want to do for real). But knowing that in reality this was Pandora's fantasy and that there was another part of me which constantly watched for her well-being, experimenting with silence and lack of emotion was indeed a very fascinating and strangely liberating experience.

I'd actually forgotten about my difficulty during the rehearsal of the opening sequence. I'd spent the morning directing and shooting a big two person scene with Kaelah and Ludwig, and this was my first scene bottoming that day. Tom was directing this scene, but I'd written the shooting script and was so closely engaged with the logistics that I was still very much in a directing headspace. During the run-through, I hadn't quite psyched myself up yet for a proper struggle and it made me spin a bit.

After that, and knowing how difficult I've found it to take CP on previous shoots where I was directing and bottoming at the same time, I wasn't quite sure how I'd react when the spanking started. We agreed to start over clothes to take the edge off - it made sense within the scene, which has no sexual overtone. In the event, by the time we got that far I was so thoroughly in character that I was able to take it without any trouble. Playing someone who is angry and determined not to show weakness always raises my pain threshold. In fact, once we got there I could have taken significantly more, but Tom and I were so focused in the interaction between our characters that neither of us gave Kaelah and Ludwig the explicit reassurance they needed to go as hard and fast as we could have.

Don't get me wrong, it was still pretty hard - Kaelah found her rhythm with the paddle and the big black cane is so heavy it doesn't need much to make an impact. To be honest, for me, the hotness of this scene comes from the psychological interaction anyway; the CP is necessary set-dressing, but not the main focus.

Here's what Tom has to say about this scene:

'Psychic Weapon C' was a very interesting scenario to shoot, because while I was definitely the top in the scene, I was not the punisher ("I have people who do that for me.") This was both a simplifying and a complicating factor, as it freed me up to concentrate on the character portrayal while also placing me at one remove from the control of power and pace that I am used to in the actual punishments.

It was quite useful to be able to streamline my attention; the character portrayal fell entirely outside the relatively simple authority figures I am called upon to deliver in most spanking scenarios. Developing, in fifteen minutes of screen time, a character who is clearly a villain, but is not a simple bad guy, and portraying a telepath without access to any post-production enhancements was enjoyably difficult. In constructing the Cuckoo I drew on several sources, both literary and cinematic, including a particularly strong performance from Quentin Tarantino in the mid-season double episode of Alias Season 1.

The key to what I wanted from the Cuckoo was the menace of the professional interrogator textured by the implication of inner demons; that he has channeled a truly overwhelming and terrifying talent into a strictly controlled form. He is, in the simplest sense, a mind-rapist, but as a person (rather than as an operative) he is cultured, courteous, and clings on tightly to his self-image as a professional even when faced with his own addiction to the pain of others.

The sense of rising menace comes across well in the final cut, enhanced by Pandora's excellent complementary performance as Officer Danby. It was thoroughly enjoyable to be able to over-master a character who was fighting every step of the way, rather than ultimately submitting a legitimate authority. It was also interesting to direct and control the punishment sequences with hand-gestures and German dialogue learned on the spot; adding the dimension of communications between the antagonists being in a language foreign to the protagonist was a challenging but rewarding technique.

The end result is emotionally intense and unusually dark, with the courageous victim ultimately losing to a dominating force who is clearly evil, but ambiguously sympathetic.

I'd never really conceived of telepathic ravishment before, but it turns out I love it. Drama, conflict, tension, psychological violence - perfect! I also really really love being caned while angry - that is, while playing a character who is angry. I maintained an angry, resisting emotional state throughout my hard prison caning with Pain4Fem, and although it didn't make it hurt any less it proved a great defence against panic. There's something exhilirating about being beaten in a state of righteous fury: almost as if every impact fuels your inner strength. And being pinned down and having my wrists bound with a ziplock tie works for me just fine.

The play's the thing

I'm home from a fantastic party with much loved kinky friends, a smile on my face and bruises on my bottom. Several of the Dreams cast were there, although sadly not either of my doms. But there was a silver lining to their absence: I got to play with lots of other people instead, and my toppy side came out as I gave both Caroline Grey and Jimmy Holloway the spankings and canings their beautiful bottoms deserve. I also found myself over both Caroline's and Adele Haze's knees at various points, as well as receiving the attentions of several other delightful tops. So lovely to play with good friends off camera as well as on. Good times!

I've added two scenes to the site since Thursday's audio story - a photoset and a video with accompanying stills. A Secretarial Fantasy includes 94 high quality photos of me in glasses, stockings and a pinstriped slip, bending over the desk for punishment with hand and tawse:

Boss/secretary spankings are as old as typewriters and red pen, but we wanted to do one anyway. It's hard to play a scene this classic "straight" - as strictly non-consensual, I mean. This power dynamic has been eroticised so often that it's impossible to pretend this is a no-nonsense punishment without any sexy overtones. So we didn't try.

This is a self-aware fantasy: there's no denying the sexual tension. The question is, who has a crush on who? Or is it mutual, as implied by frants' lovely comment:

Thomas could say "We cant go on doing this all day seven days a week" and Pandora would say, eyes wide open, "Why not ??!"

Today's update is a short Shakespearean spanking film with some accompanying photos. Me, Caroline and Thomas using Kate and Bianca's fight scene from The Taming of the Shrew as a springboard for spankings both in and out of character. Director Cameron has his work cut out trying to control his squabbling actresses, neither of whom can seem to remember their lines. And he's not sure Caroline should be following the stage directions to tie up and strike her co-actress with quite so much enthusiasm...

I've wanted to film Shakespearean spankings since playing the Complete Works over the course of five weekends with a group of friends who included several likeminded deviants. We managed to bring out a fair amount of kink in different scenes and plays.

The Taming of the Shrew is the classic starting place - but I wanted to have a go at a less well-known spanking opportunity, between the two sisters rather than Kate and Petruchio. Any straightforward rendition of the play, however, results in a negligible number of spanks, so we decided to go backstage and re-run the critical moment in rehearsal, with some added punishment of the (obviously kinky) actresses by the director.

All three of us are theatre nerds, and this light-hearted take on a favourite play was a hell of a lot of fun. I hope you can forgive the self-indulgence and enjoy the corsets, petticoats and iambic pentameter - and, of course, the spankings!
