A veritable arsenal

Kelley May shows the razor strap to Rebecca Belacqua at Dreams of Spanking

As spanking aficionados ourselves, we like to feature a wide range of implements in our films. Bare hand spanking and canes are probably our most-used tools, of course, but we’ve got a bit of everything: paddles, belts, riding crops, floggers, hairbrushes, tawses, rulers and the occasional wooden spoon.

There’s something a bit special about leather, isn’t there? It has a certain smell, a certain texture. New leather is polished and stingy, but with age and use a leather implement becomes softer and more supple and packs more of a thud. The pointed ends of a tawse give a sharp, sudden kind of pain; the click of a belt-buckle before a beating adds a frisson to any encounter.

A razor strop is a flexible leather strap designed for the polishing of blades. They’re a little archaic now in the age of disposable razors, but once upon a time you’d find them hanging on every bedroom wall - in easy, convenient reach. Many of them have a metal loop on the end to make them easier to mount; ours doesn’t, for safety reasons (the bite that would add when spanking would be actively unethical), but it still has the classic polished wooden handle.

There’s a very particular feel to the razor strop. Leather paddles are heavy and rigid; tawses have split tails; belts tend to be much narrower. A strop is broad, flexible and supple, often soft with age and use but no less punishing for it when applied to the backside.

Kelley May uses the razor strap on Rebecca Belacqua's bare bottom at Dreams of SpankingRebecca Belacqua hadn’t experienced one of these until this week’s shoot - and she seems to take to it pretty quickly. She kicks and squirms beautifully, both performer and character wriggling and wincing under Kelley May’s hand. There’s a lovely moment in the backstage extras where Kelley mentions how much she’d been enjoying her co-star’s reactions; “I kept having to remember that I’m her mother in this scene, I can’t look at her like that!”

I, too, have always loved being beaten with leather - so I particularly took to this scene, and should you share my predilections I’m sure you’ll agree.

Performer-Produced Content

Jayda Blayze at Dreams of Spanking

Caught Camming’ with Jayda Blayze is the third film in our new Guest Director series, and we think it’s going brilliantly. (The others, if you were wondering, were ‘A Spot of Bother’ - our latest period piece, directed by and starring Charlie J Forrest - and Nimue Allen’s ‘Lockdown Scolding’.) 

Made in collaboration with Universal Spanking, the fantasy behind this film is all Jayda’s own - to find out a little more about her inspiration, watch the behind-the-scenes extra we’re releasing in tandem with the main event.

We’ve always been champions of performer-produced content here at Dreams of Spanking: it fits perfectly with our ethical standpoint and our focus on consent above all else. The continued need for social distancing has kept us from being able to get our own cameras rolling again, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce you all to some fresh content made by other performer/directors - including those who, like Jayda, live too far away to shoot with us in person.

It’s been wonderful to have a chance to work with Jayda, and we’re pleased to announce that this won’t be the last time - we’ve got another film starring her coming out in due course, so watch this space! In the meantime, you can get your Jayda fix on Just For Fans, ManyVids or Twitter.

Dispatches from the World Spain Party

It feels like I've done a lot of travelling this year - a month in the US in April; two festivals over the summer, one of which was a whole week away; a long weekend in Spain and a week in Berlin. Girl on the Net and AJ have done fantastic work keeping things ticking over tidily behind the scenes, and for the most part I've not done badly at getting hot new spanking films edited and uploaded in time to keep to our regular update schedule - even while I'm away. I'm proud to say that in the nearly-three years I've been running Dreams of Spanking, I've never missed an update.

However, a full fictional spanking film with actors and costumes and a plot and everything isn't the quickest thing in the world to make, and sometimes it's better not to rush it. Which is why, while I was in Berlin, I uploaded a video diary instead, dishing all the gossip about the kinky fun I had two weeks earlier at the World Spain Party.

But it wasn't just a video blog: it contained some spanking too.

I mentioned before that the London Tanner asked me to participate in a sunset strapping outside the villa on the last evening of the party, to create some fun images he could use to promote the event. I was keen. What I didn't expect was that as well as the gallery of 26 beautiful photos taken by Only Real Princess and Mr Stern, bathed in gorgeous golden light, Only Real Princess also recorded a couple of minutes of video.

It's admittedly rather short, and very blurry (and I actually made some bits of it more blurry on purpose, to protect the identities of partygoers) but for me it's a wonderful reminder of the warmth, fun and relaxed atmosphere of the Spanish party, and of a lovely scene with my friend Ian.

Both the video and the photos are available to watch absolutely free, so even if you aren't currently a member of Dreams of Spanking, head on over and feast your eyes on what happened when my bottom met the London Tanner's razor strop.

Ceremonial flogging for the magician's new apprentice

You remember I blogged a couple of weeks ago about submitting a couple of films to Cinekink? I was absolutely stunned to hear that one of them was accepted!

Click to view trailer for My%20Inner%20Little%20Girl

My film about feminist submission, self-pleasure and spanking fantasies, My Inner Little Girl, will be screened at the Cinekink festival on Saturday 1 March, at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City. I won't be able to attend the screening but if you want to go and tell me how it went, you can register a ticket here.

Meanwhile, I've got a gorgeous new photo gallery to share with you: the second part of The Magician's Apprentice, with photographs accompanying original spanking fiction by Adele Haze.

The Magician's Apprentice (Part 2)

Two young lovers find themselves caught in flagrante delicto by a master magician - and he isn't impressed. After thrashing his apprentice for failing to rein in his passions, Master Finlay informs Sophie that she has untrained magical ability, and must learn to control it or she will put herself and others in danger. He offers to take her on as his second apprentice. Sophie can't believe her good fortune - her old life was not worth clinging to, and she accepts the opportunity gladly, even though it means undergoing to a painful initiation ceremony.

I've always loved the idea of sacred or ceremonial kink; the use of blindfolds, restraints, whipping and flogging in magical ritual. There's something deliciously objectifying about being a ritual object or a sacrifice to the gods, body mortified to raise power for a higher cause.

On the other hand, blindfolds and flogging can play a part in an initiation ceremony or a rite of passage, where the focus of attention is very much on the celebrant - as with the ritual conducted to mark Sophie's initiation into the path of magical learning. Either way, this is about using pain and sensory deprivation to achieve an altered state of consciousness.

Now that she is officially subject to the magician's authority, Sophie must learn to control her passions and her powers. To teach her this lesson Master Finlay straps her bottom soundly with a razor strop of worn, thick leather.

But even the pain of Sophie's punishment - or the chores she is set afterwards - do not diminish her joy at finally finding a place where she belongs.
