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.
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 Howard’s Little Girl was the first fan-requested, multi-performer custom film Pandora ever shot, and it was originally made way back in 2009.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.
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!
They say that there are only seven basic stories in all of history, and we’ve taken artistic licence with all of them in this week’s mythological daydream of a film. When we managed to arrange a weekend’s worth of shooting in a gorgeous period house with two amazing performers at our disposal, we knew we wanted to try a few new things - and Venus Chastising Cupid was an incredibly fun tale to explore.
Faerie Willow was a perfect pick for our cheeky, mischievous take on Cupid, while Clara Hewitt’s knack for maternal sternness made for a great reinterpretation of classical readings of Venus. It was a great weekend of filming all told, and this was a wonderful way to wrap it up - particularly as it’s a scenario that makes fantastic use of the pink, stripy welts Willow had all over her bottom from earlier scenes!
We don’t claim to have absolutely nailed the scholarly accuracy in our retelling of this forgotten legend, but we certainly had a whole lot of fun with it.
Kinky people talk about headspaces a lot. It’s the word we’ve come to use to describe someone’s frame of mind as they play: are you taking a sadistic pleasure in your partner’s kicks and gasps, or trying to coax them into a state of genuine euphoria? Are you offering up control to a dominant presence you’re aching to serve, or do you want them to take it from you in a battle of wills? There are as many headspaces as there are fantasies, of course, and every set of play partners has its own dynamic.
One of the core truths of healthy, consensual BDSM is that the exchange of power is more complex than it seems at first glance. Ostensibly one party is in control and the other has surrendered it - but in truth the experience is collaborative, and the submissive partner is usually the real centre of a scene. The deeper into your headspaces you are, the more real your fantastical scenario becomes.
Becci’s character in this week’s film is a perfect example of that collaborative creation of a dynamic and a space. The whole surprise was their idea: they suggested to Stephen that he bring them into date night as a present for his partner, and throughout they're clearly very into the story the three of them are telling. They've chosen a state of mind in which they deeply wants to please them both, and the submission they're exploring is of the eager, adoring sort.
In real-life play that’s one of my favourite headspaces to be in, so it’s exciting to see it depicted on camera. Kelley and Stephen - who are an offscreen couple as well as frequent co-stars - nurture it beautifully, strict and sensuous by turns with a wicked gleam in their eyes at their more sadistic moments. And Becci - who is the true centre of attention here - has been an excellent surprise for them both.
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...
This week’s offering is a little more sexually explicit than many of our films, and it’s all the truer for it. We love to explore fantasies and fictions here - the name of the site is Dreams of Spanking, after all! - but one of the hottest things about this release is how realistic it is: this is a real scene between two real people, exploring their bodies and their desires together as any two kinksters on a BDSM playdate might. I particularly loved the way the two of them talk to each other as they play; Sarah’s tone as she tells Blake just what a slut they are is deeply compelling, and there’s a gorgeously aroused edge to Blake’s response as they squirm in their ropes.
The very horniest thing of all, though, is the stunning crescendo at the end of the film. You can really feel the intensity of Blake’s orgasm, and frankly it’s a pretty impressive feat - the timing is impeccable, and I certainly don’t have that level of control!
This isn’t a fantastical scenario in the way many of our films are. There’s no costuming or backstory, and our performers are playing themselves. It’s more like a slice of life scene - if your life was incredibly filthy and meltingly hot.
One can but hope...
A lot of our work is focused on hot, heavy fantasies: reluctant bottoms taking a harsh punishment, hardy brats weathering severe beatings. We love to explore the endurance and resilience of spankees, and many of the scenarios we depict are about anticipation and nervousness and fear.
Sometimes, though, spanking play isn’t like that. Spanking-as-sensation is an important part of the kink: a chance to really dig into the way things feel, to explore what we can take and what makes us feel the best. It’s a fantastic way for play partners to connect with each other, and for both tops and bottoms to communicate well and learn how the other person works.
In this week’s newly-released scene, David and Pandora aren’t really playing characters or depicting a specific fantastical scenario. This is more like a real-life spanking, showing two people who want to explore a beating for the sheer pleasure of it - and, when it’s done this well, what a pleasure it can be.
A book makes a surprisingly good spanking implement. I’ve been spanked with books myself, in fact; they’re often at hand, they’re easy to wield, they give a satisfyingly thuddy impact that makes a great warmup beating. Their subjects can add a little something to the headspace, too: it’s amusingly apposite to be beaten with a copy of Crime & Punishment, and it can be extra humiliating if the chosen tome is by an essayist whose opinions you loathe.
In the backstage content released alongside Part I, Sai and Eve talk about how they’ve both been around and alongside books their whole lives. Books have been an important part of their careers; Sai really was a bookshop manager for a good while, and Eve has worked in several others. They’re both avid readers, and the books they collect as a couple mean a lot to them.
It makes sense, then, for them to involve books in their kinky lives in this way - and we’re delighted to have them share that with us. Some of the funniest moments in this film arise from the comments Eve and Sai make about particular choices that get pulled off the shelves to further redden Sai’s shapely bottom. A must-see for fans of switch couples and sexy literature, this scene, like its predecessor, is a beautiful microcosm of a real relationship - funny, sexy, and deeply connected.
It’s a pretty popular trope in spanking stories for the spankee to try and put a brave face on it. There’s a bunch of ways it can play out: an unrepentant schoolboy refusing to be cowed by a strict headmistress; an eager submissive who wants to please their dominant by taking a punishment beautifully; a fierce rival unwilling to give her opponent the satisfaction of seeing her squirm.
This week’s release is a whole new take on that story. The core plot of this film is one we’ve done before - “sales exec spanked by boss for missing deadline” is a fun dynamic, but not a new one to us. In this case though it’s framed as a sort of social media prank; the firm has a popular YouTube channel, and the whole film is actually a video published to their many viewers.
What really makes it hot is the effect that has on Eryn’s responses and behaviour. The YouTube channel is mostly their project - these are their subscribers watching, their fans seeing her humiliated and exposed. They want to make good content and come across as a competent professional, but to do that they needs to keep up the veneer of a fun, cheerful YT prank punishment even as the blows rain down on their soft bare buttocks and thighs.
All told it’s a great twist on a popular story, and genuinely funny to boot - this is one you won’t want to miss.
