Dreams of Spanking: fairtrade spanking, corporal punishment and discipline fantasies by Pandora Blake. Join us »

 

Victorian pin-up perfection

Despite containing nakedness, over the knee spanking and hard caning, there is something almost innocent in these images. Maybe it's the Victorian setting, or Pandora's white flouncy underskirt. Whatever it is, it really gives this scene a romantic air that I love. It's a sort of nostalgia for a time I only know from books and films.

The Victorian Brothel starring Pandora Blake and Thomas Cameron is a gorgeous sepia photoset that manages to perfectly capture a sort of mentor/protegee experience. I think the slightly cheeky but nervous smile on Pandora's face as she looks up at him is one of the things that make me think of the asymmetrical power dynamic between a strict teacher and student who is eager to impress.

There is an innocence in the photos of Pandora as a Victorian wench getting ready to meet (and please) her new client. I love the image of her kneeling at his feet; the way her hands are tucked under her bottom, and she is looking at the floor but still turned towards him, and the smile on his face as he sits relaxed. It holds possibility; his hand resting on his knee looks like all he has to do is lift a finger and he will be touching her breast. It’s powerful; charged with sensual tension but not overtly erotic…and despite not being submissive, I find I can’t decide if I want to be on the floor or in the chair.

The sequence of photographs where Pandora is showing herself off for Thomas is fascinating. There is an air of confidence but also uncertainty. It conveys the feeling that she is proud of her body but not quite sure if the person she is showing off for approves. Even when she is laid over his knee she seems confused by his lack of apparent response to her charms - which makes her reaction to the first spank so delightful...

I love the careful way Thomas explores her; lifting her skirt, parting her white bloomers, stroking her bum, and skimming past her more delicate area before teasing with a finger, as if he is testing her readiness. The way he lines up the paddle while Pandora tenses, her face crunched as she prepares for the first impact of leather.

I think my favourite image in this set is the one of the cane impacting on Pandora’s bare bottom. The pose, composition, the way the heels lift her bare bottom, and the stocking tops frame the ‘impact zone’. I love how the cane is pressing into her flesh, bending slightly with the force of the stroke. Plus, it is a very lovely bottom, especially with that pattern of bruised stripes across it. It’s an image I have gone back to more than once.

Finally her punishment is over, and Thomas gathers Pandora on his knee. There is something really sexy about the way Pandora bites her lip as Thomas bites her nipple. The way he has her arms pinned behind her back just adds to the feeling. This is a really hot image, that gave me all the right kind of shivers. The film that goes with this photoset has just been released, and I can't wait to watch it because I think it will be hot hot hot.

The last image in the set reminds me of those collectable cards you used to get in cigarette packet, of the sexy ladies in their underwear. It has that air about it, Victorian pin-up perfection.

Shooting in a cinematic style - the story behind our new film 'Houseboy'

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?

Houseboy - a new cinematic short fetish film by Dreams of Spanking

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.

Houseboy - a new cinematic short fetish film by Dreams of Spanking

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.

Houseboy - a new cinematic short fetish film by Dreams of Spanking

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. 

Houseboy - a new cinematic short fetish film by Dreams of Spanking

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.

Houseboy - a new cinematic short fetish film by Dreams of Spanking

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.

In conclusion

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.

How to be a good domestic servant (as learned from spanking porn)

In our new POV film, Pandora Blake conducts an interview for the position of butler. A respectable job, and one which carries a lot of important responsibilities. But where do you learn how to do such a rare and skilled job as this? Luckily, although you may never get the opportunity to apprentice with a real butler, Dreams of Spanking has plenty of characters with lessons to teach us about domestic service.

From the maid who scrubs the parlour to the gardener who keeps the grounds, there's a huge range of skills and experience for you to consult if you're looking to apply for the role of butler, or any other domestic service role. So without futher ado, here are some tips from the best (and worst) domestic servants on Dreams of Spanking:

Tip 1: Keep your hand out of the till

It doesn't matter if your family is poor, and you're so underpaid that you can't cover their costs – master and mistress will notice if anything goes missing. If you're extremely lucky, as in the case of The Whipped Maid, then light stealing won't result in a loss of your position and a return to the workhouse - a kind master or mistress will simply administer a fifty-stroke whipping to ensure the crime is not repeated.

Tip 2: ABC – Always Be Compliant

Amelia Jane Rutherford and Caroline Grey provide an excellent primer for domestic behaviour in The Baroness' New Housegirls. As Lady Blake inspects the girls and puts them through their paces, it's clear that while elegance and grace are high on her list, the quality most valued by their new mistress is compliance: unquestioning obedience to her every command.

Tip 3: Look your best

There's no universally-approved uniform for domestic servants. Some employers will prefer you to wear a well-pressed suit, or a neat maid's uniform complete with cap. Others, such as Michael Darling's boss in this domestic scene, will prefer their butler to dress in floral apron, with nothing underneath. Respect your employer's dress code, because they probably know best. Michael's, for example, clearly has an excellent eye for the best outfit in which to appreciate a bright red spanked bottom.

Tip 4: Maintain professional composure at all times

This is a basic premise for all domestic service roles. Sadly, though, as is clear in 'Position Available', it's not always easy to stay professional when presented with certain challenging tasks. For instance, if your mistress bends over a chair, offering her latex-clad bottom to a prospective butler so they can polish her skirt, it would be hard for even the most consummate pro to refrain from staring. Just make sure you don't indulge the temptation to inappropriately touch...

Tip 5: Hide your indiscretions

Of course one cannot always be perfect, even if you know that misbehaviour will be dealt with swiftly and harshly. Such was the case with Sebastian Hawley, the undergardener caught sneaking off the estate and causing a ruckus in the local public house. Mistress Blake the housekeeper responsible for teaching him a lesson with the birch. If only he'd been more careful.

So our final tip is one that applies no matter which domestic role you're applying for: No matter how strict your mistress or master, remember the most important advice of all - if you're going to misbehave, make certain you don't get caught.

If you're experienced in domestic service, have experience in being served yourself, or are even just an enthusiastic observer, please do add your own tips in the comments below. After all, we're keen to ensure that all Dreams of Spanking maids, butlers, gardeners and stableboys maintain the strictest standards of professional behaviour at all times...  

Leia-Ann Woods bends over for the cane

A while ago Pandora and I were discussing the best positions for caning. She told me that one position is usually the most popular among Dreams of Spanking viewers: "bend over and touch your toes.'

Strict caning for submissive secretary Leia-Ann Woods at Dreams of Spanking

Whether it's the view of someone's bottom, vulnerable and exposed, or the feeling of your own bum stretched tight and waiting for the crack of the cane, somehow there's something about this particular position that's incredibly arousing.

If you're one for whom the phrase 'bend over and touch your toes' sends filthy-hot shivers down your spine, you'll probably be a fan of our latest spanking film. Leia-Ann Woods plays a submissive secretary being trained by her cruel boss Thomas Cameron. She has been with him for over a week already - and is doing her best to remain obedient under the stress of his exacting regime.

He begins each day with an intrusive inspection, running his hands all over her, and examining the way she is wearing her tight-laced corset, tight pencil skirt, fully fashioned stockings and suspenders – a very traditional and deeply hot uniform for a BDSM submissive secretary.

As you'd expect, Mr Cameron is keen to find fault with poor Leia. She is subjected to twelve strokes every morning as a matter of course, simply to keep her on her toes - or touching them. Today, he finds six reasons to add additional strokes to her regular morning punishment, taking the total to an eye-watering eighteen. Leia tries not to show her fear as he tells her to assume the position for the cane.

Strict caning for submissive secretary Leia-Ann Woods at Dreams of Spanking

Personally, I struggle with the touching-toes position. I love the feeling of vulnerability that it brings, being so exposed and so reliant on my own self-discipline - using my own strength of body and mind to hold the position so I don't topple over. But then the strokes fall, one after the other, and I wobble, and tense up, and grit my teeth, and it becomes harder and harder not to break position.

Touching my toes seems easy when I first do it, but as the pain accumulates and the heat and sting of the welts layering across my upturned bottom grow stronger, my muscles start to tremble and I worry that I'll either fall forward or – worse – involuntarily straighten up and earn myself extra strokes.

It's much easier if you're told to bend over a desk, the back of a chair, or even lie face-down on the bed to receive a beating. But then - as Leia-Ann's determined poise and Thomas Cameron's calm perfectionism show - a thorough caning isn't about what's easy, is it? It's about punishment.

Strict caning for submissive secretary Leia-Ann Woods at Dreams of Spanking

I find it difficult to stay in position touching my toes at the best of times. Wearing a tightly laced corset, hobble skirt and high stiletto heels like Leia-Ann in this film, I would find it nearly impossible. Leia is justly famed among spanking fans for her grace and elegance, whether she is administering a thrashing or receiving one. But if you want to know just how poised she can be, even through the stress of eighteen searing cane strokes, watch Day Ten of her Training and find out.

Ms Vixxxen's first ever spanking video

Two words: sheer knickers. What, you want more words? OK, here goes – the latest video is up, and it's pretty spectacular. Vix Vixxxen is new to spanking videos, and her first one with Pandora is something pretty special.

Both of them are dressed to kill – or rather play. Pandora in a gorgeous tight latex ballgown and Ms Vixxxen in a cute lingerie set that includes a fabulous tutu and – did I mention see-through panties? Check out their stunningly hot outfits for yourself...

Of course, it would be remiss of me not to mention the women inside the tight latex dress and the sheer knickers, and both Pandora and Vix are clearly having a fantastic time in this video. There's lots of flirting, and Pandora puts her at ease quickly, so we get to hear all about her spanking desires, and how she got into the spanking scene.

We also get to see Vix Vixxxen assume a series of hot poses – pushing her shapely arse out as she leans against the mantelpiece, posing artfully over a spanking bench and – the best, in my opinion – touching her toes to receive six stinging slaps with the strap. It turns out she has a background in ballet, which explains not only her lithe dancer's figure, but also how she can pull such graceful poses without breaking a sweat.

One of my favourite things about Dreams of Spanking is that you really get to know the performers. This video is a cross between an interview and a spanking – the best of both worlds, and Pandora describes it as a 'warm up' for what's to come...

You can tell Ms Vixxxen is incredibly excited to be here. Her big filthy grin as she receives the strokes from her chosen implement is a delight to see.

I personally enjoy seeing performers who have similar tastes to my own – when Pandora asked Ms Vixxxen to choose an implement I was really hoping she'd pick the strap, and delighted that she did. It's got such a lovely heavy slap, which in my opinion is one of the best whacking noises.

I'm also pleased to see that Pandora is a fan of the phrase 'good girl.' As a subby type, I love hearing 'good girl' in porn, because it's exactly what I want to hear in real life: a dominant pleased with your work when you take a good beating. And when that dominant happens to be dressed head to toe in tight black latex, well... it adds a certain something.

Ms Vixxxen assumes the position at Dreams of Spanking

So, to sum up: this spanking video is the perfect introduction to the lovely Vix Vixxxen. We get to hear all about her love of spanking, see her posing and exposing herself in a stunning lingerie outfit, and watch Pandora (in an equally stunning tight latex dress) give her a warm up hand spanking and twelve hard strokes with the strap.

And don't forget those sheer knickers. They're hot not just because you can see all of Ms Vixxxen's gorgeous arse (in the video Pandora describes her as 'perfectly formed', and I can't help but agree!) but when she's being spanked you can see the darkening red patches on each cheek. Red blush blooming through blue see-through panties – something about that just makes me squirm with delight, and I'm pretty sure you'll agree that it's pretty damn special.

Enjoy the show, I'm off to do a bit of underwear shopping myself. I'll just watch it one more time - for research, you know?

An officer and a gentleman

We've got a new military historical series running at the moment, shot on our location shoot in September and starring Thomas Cameron, Andrew Shada and myself - plus Nimue Allen in a forthcoming episode.

Havelock's Campaign is inspired by our favourite Napoleonic War fiction including the Sharpe books by Bernard Cornwell, and the Flashman series by George Macdonald Fraser, and centres around the character of Major Harry Havelock, a cavalry officer in Her Majesty's Hussars. This character of Tom's creation almost instantly became a firm favourite (especially of me and Nimue, who quickly developed big old crushes on him!), and Tom's skill as an actor, and passion for the period, shines throughout.

The first episode joins the officers the night before they ride out on campaign. Havelock congratulates new Lieutenant Shada on his promotion, and takes the opportunity to introduce the boy to the privileges of rank...

The New Lieutenant

Major Harry Havelock of Her Majesty's Hussars has been assigned a new Lieutenant, commission still squeaky-new. Lieutenant Shada requires introduction to the privileges of an officer and a gentleman: wine, wenching, and whipping! Havelock also takes the opportunity to provide the new Lieutenant with Flash Harry's patent method for domestic bliss: a brisk over-the-lap spanking and, if she needs it, a firm thrashing with the riding crop...

The fantasy of being given by one dominant to another is one I've always had. It combines helplessness and lack of control with the pleasures of being shown off, objectified, and being the centre of attention of two tops at once. When they are both hot young men in military uniform ... well, what more could a lady ask?

I also love being used as a "demonstration model" in a scenario where one top is training or teaching another. This is a theme we've visited before, such as in The New Head Girl. In that story, the "demo bottom" was entirely unhappy about the way she was being treated. My wench in this scene is a little more sanguine about her situation. Maybe she is resigned to her fate and determined to have what fun she can with it. Maybe she has grown fond of the Major and truly wants to please him. Maybe he has chosen well, and picked a girl who genuinely loves to be spanked and whipped. Either way, I enjoyed playing the character of a saucy girl, a tart who enjoys her work, and finds being a camp follower far more entertaining than the other roles available to a woman of her class.

As the scene progressed, I found myself increasingly empathising with her - if I had been in her situation, I would probably have done my best to end up in Major Havelock's tent, too!

The historical military setting happened to fall right within Andrew's comfort zone, and his first-shoot nerves evaporated as he slipped easily into the manners and jargon of the setting. Tom and Andrew developed a rapport on that shoot which really comes across in these scenes, and the behind the scenes videos are a wonderful opportunity to get to know shy Andrew a little better.

It was a good thing that Andrew grew to like and trust Tom over the course of the shoot, because Tom was topping him in his last scene of the day, a harsh riding crop thrashing. Andrew was exhausted by the end his first ever spanking shoot, and opted out of a final scene with him topping the wench (me!) which had been pencilled into the callsheet. But he was happy to go ahead with this one, and take one last beating before some well deserved R&R.

Military Discipline

During his first battle of the campaign, Second Lieutenant Shada was tasked with carrying a crucial message, but failed to carry out his duty after his horse stumbled and broke a leg. Major Havelock gives the young officer a firm dressing down, but takes pity and offers him a final chance to save his career. Rather than face a court martial, Shada must suffer the punishment of a cadet, rather than an officer, one last time, and bend over for twenty lashes from his superior.

For me, this scene revolves around two key elements. Firstly, Havelock's genuine affection for the boy, clearly evidenced by the fond exasperation with which he scolds him, and the fact he gives him an option at all. Humiliating and embarrassing as it may be for Shada to drop his trousers and take the punishment which would have been due were he still an ensign, and not, in fact, a newly minted officer, it is certainly better than the alternative.

Officers were not flogged in the British army - that punishment was reserved for the rank and file, and was significantly more brutal than what is shown here. Flogging was administered to the bare back with long leather whips, and a severe flogging could be a death sentence. However, young aristocratic ensigns and cadets, sent to the army or navy in order to be educated and prepared for a career in service, would have been caned by their superiors, just as if they had been at school.

In this story, Shada's character attended a military academy (Sandhurst or Addiscombe, probably) and so did not serve in the army as an ensign. If he had, however, and if he had been entrusted with a task which bad judgement or bad luck prevented him from carrying out, he might well have found himself on the receiving end of a thrashing from his commanding officer.

As a lieutenant he is supposed to have grown out of that sort of foolishness, and cannot now expect the leniency of corporal punishment. Havelock, however, has grown fond of the boy and believes he has promise. The punishment here is not only an embarrassing return to a juvenile mode, it is also a second chance, a gesture of affection, and one that the young lieutenant is willing to receive.

The second thing I love about Military Discipline, the key moment that makes it really hot for me, is when Havelock exhorts Shada to take his punishment "like the gentleman I know you to be". Shada nods, summons his courage, and takes twenty strokes hard enough to leave his bottom welted and bruised as stoically as he possibly can. Andrew's expressive features and body language make it clear how much it is hurting, but as he exhales and fights for control you can also tell that he is trying as hard as he can not to show it.

I love restrained reactions, courage and dignity in a spankee. It's not politically correct, but I find it especially hot in the context of male/male punishment, where gendered expectations are a factor and the bottom is trying to "man up" and retain their manly pride in the eyes of their disciplinarian. Andrew really felt this whipping, you can tell, but the hottest thing is the way he tries to be brave. And, I should add, succeeds: given this was his first ever spanking shoot, he really did do amazingly well.

Auditioning the help

I'm a bit behind on blogging our latest scenes, so there might be a flurry of posts over the next few days while I get caught up. It's been a busy month, what with attending Molly Malone's amazing wedding; shooting with her, Zoe Montana and new male spankee Vincent Brennan; doing a tonne of 121 dom sessions; and enjoying some pleasantly filthy activities with my darling D, and, pleasingly, with Tom as well, who has taken time out of his busy summer to come and pay me a couple of booty calls lately. (A term which seems even more appropriate when it's just as much for spanking as it is for sex.)

I want to post previews from both this summer's shoots - things have just been so hectic I've not had time to finish processing the pictures. Ideally, I'd love to get caught up this week, as on Sunday Tom and I are going away for with Nimue Allen to shoot for Dreams of Spanking and Nimue's World for a whole seven days. It's an exciting milestone for this site, our biggest shoot yet, and we'll be adding four new performers to the Dreams of Spanking cast. I'm hugely excited and will share more details soon :)

Meanwhile, a look back to our recent film featuring Amelia Jane Rutherford and Caroline Grey as applicants for a vacancy in Baroness Blake's decadent household.

The Baroness' New Housegirls

When Baroness Blake hires a new housegirl, she is looking for obedience, grace, elegance, and a willingness to serve. Two applicants compete to meet her exacting standards: blonde Amelia, keen to show off her poise and perfect submission; and redhaired Caroline, a strong-willed and sarcastic New York City girl.

The Baroness doesn't only want attractive serving girls, but willing companions who can help keep her guests entertained. She tests their modesty, their mettle and their ability to give and receive corporal punishment with a smile. Do either of them have what it takes to join her household?

Photographer Hywel Phillips, Amelia's real-life husband, lent his skill to this shoot and captured a whopping 134 photographs, each and every one stunning in high resolution. Amelia and Caroline, a perfectly complementary pair, are shown off to best advantage, whether in elegant evening gowns or bare skin.

And as a hard-wired spanko, Hywel knows which moments in a punishment sequence are the important ones.

With a running time of over twenty minutes, the accompanying long-play video has already proved popular. If you like satin ballgowns, service, nude submissives, rivalry and watching me administer the tawse, you'll love this classy F/F punishment drama.

Submissive housegirls punished at Dreams of Spanking

Domestic goddesses

This week our theme is domestic goddesses - especially sexy, submissive, apron-clad ones. So put your feet up, relax, and let a well-spanked beauty bring you service with a smile...

First we have Molly Malone, who has been baking all day like a good little housewife. Now all her cupcakes need is 15 minutes in the oven: just long enough for Pandora to undress Molly down to her vintage lingerie and give her a hard hand spanking.

Once Molly's bare bottom is nice and pink, there's still time for twelve good swats with the wooden baking spoon.

Finally the cupcakes are ready, and Molly's round buns are also roasted to perfection. She ties the apron over her stockings and suspenders; Pandora won't let her have her clothes back until the cupcakes are iced. Until then, Molly is left to decorate the cupcakes with her bare red spanked bottom on display.

Cupcakes is a playful domestic F/F roleplay with a charmingly retro flavour. Yum yum yum!


But of course, not only ladies can be sexy domestic femmes! In our accompanying bonus gallery, playfully called Cheesecake!, we have Michael Darling wearing only a candy-coloured apron and a smile. He shows off his recently spanked bottom and strikes some classic pin-up poses.

It was the end of a busy day shooting domestic F/M scenes with Michael and Nimue, but somehow after the final scripted scene (which will be going up on the site next week, so you can see how Michael obtained these cane stripes) we all had some energy and enthusiasm left.

Michael's bottom was so beautifully welted that we decided to show it off in one final set of photos. He had brought a pink and blue apron which we hadn't got to use yet, and we came up with the idea of a gender-bending, naked-butler-meets-submissive-housewife scene, with Michael wearing only the apron and showing his marks while he pours the wine.



I couldn't resist the opportunity to twin this scene with Cupcakes starring Molly Malone. Playing at being a retro housewife can be hot for subby types of any gender - why let women have all the fun?

And yes, it's possible I may have a teensy kink for the image of a spanked bottom showing through the back of an apron.

Boys in three piece suits

If, like me, you are a fool who persists in the silly idea that male bottoms can be rather nice to look at - and Michael Darling's in particular is a delicious, rosy peach - you will probably like our latest video, The Tailor's Apprentice (part 1). Here's the free trailer:

The Tailor's Apprentice (part 1)

Bratty Mr Darling makes such a fuss while being fitted for a suit that the tailor's apprentice is obliged to resort to drastic measures. Sebastian has been told to get this difficult client's suit made up if he wants to keep his job - no matter what it takes.

When the snobbish young gentleman persistently refuses to co-operate, a desperate Sebastian bends him over and uses his wooden ruler to give him the discipline he clearly needs.

This scene was inspired a year or so ago when I stumbled across the amazing art of Nickie Charles on tumblr. Specifically, this piece:

I always had Sebastian Hawley in mind for the role of the tailor - with his neat and tidy appearance and service-oriented kink he is simply perfect. Initially the client's resemblance to Tom made me think that this was a scene in which customer spanks tailor, but then I decided it would be much more fun to make it a switch storyline. Tom doesn't switch, so Michael Darling was cast as the bearded client.

Talking it over with Michael and Sebastian, we collectively decided that it would be a bit too problematic and classist for an aristocratic client to punish a service worker; we all felt much more comfortable with Michael initially earning himself a whacking through being outrageously rude and snobbish, and then getting his own back.

There are so many things I love about this scene. How hot the boys look in their three piece suits; the stellar performances each of them puts in; the almost accidental, entirely off-hand full frontal shots (phwoar!); the number of times Sebastian is obliged to measure Michael's full, round, peachy bottom (I didn't realise this before, but I apparently have a bit of a bottom-measuring fetish). And the spanking and scolding are pretty convincing, too. Sebastian in righteous angry top mode makes me all hot and flustered.

Part 2 is scheduled for a few week's time, so check back next month to see what happens next.

Dominant masochism

Our latest spanking film, A Pleasure to Serve, is a sizzlingly sexy bedroom fantasy in which Michael and I play a F/M couple who explore their switch sides. In this scenario, my submissive Michael may have wanted to get his hands on my bottom, but he certainly never dared ask.

Still, from time to time, my character quite likes the feeling of a good, long hard spanking ... as long as it's on my terms. He's been a good boy lately, so tonight I decide to reward him by letting him take me over his knee. But as I command him to spank me as hard as he can, it's quite clear who's in charge!


Slowly removing my knickers before going over Michael's knee.

This is a sensual dom/sub spanking with a twist. Some viewers have described it as a switch scene, which is technically true - my character is both the domme and the bottom, and Michael's is both the top and the sub. However, I haven't tagged it as a switch scene; I'm reserving that keyword for scenes in which the same person both gives and receives corporal punishment.

I wrote it after Michael asked for a top role, and I think it shows off his aptitude as a spanker in the making. He's certainly got the hands for it - and doesn't he look good taking a lady over his knee?


Look at the size of those hands! He knows how to use them, too.


One bottom, well spanked.

And here are some of my favourite screengrabs:


"Spank you hard, you said? Are you sure?"


"Michael, I want you to spank me as hard as you possibly can with that hairbrush. Do you understand? Good boy."


Michael doing his best to please me.

This scene has already proved popular. The fact that it's a genuinely hard, long spanking with some serious use of the hairbrush may help, but what people have commented on is the explicit consent. It seems that lots of you want to see videos in which a spankee who adores being spanked asks for it - or even demands it!

As one viewer wrote after watching the trailer:

It's so so good to show so clearly that the spankee can be wholly desirous of her spanks... (and they can still be hard and long!)... People who disapprove of kink might have to re-think their views if we have more videos like this :)

But this scene isn't quite as simple as a spankee who loves to be spanked. It also turns traditional ideas of the roles of dominant and submissive upside down. When Michael questions my orders or doesn't obey quickly enough, my character scolds him - and at one point gets up from his lap and slaps his face.

This scene doesn't portray "topping from the bottom" (a problematic phrase at the best of times, with its associated value judgements about being submissive 'enough') but the relationship between a dominant masochist and her submissive.

(For reference, this does not express anything about my own relationships with D and Tom. I might request types of play I know I'll enjoy, but one thing I never do is dominate either of my primary partners in the bedroom. Perhaps I would, if either of them had a submissive side, but they don't, so I don't. However, with different partners I'm a sadist, a masochist and a switch, so with more submissive playmates this dynamic might be one I'd explore.)

This film was inspired by watching people play at spanking parties; people who are known dominants, but who occasionally enjoy receiving pain on their own terms. Most people have more than one side to their kink, and I know that dominant masochism and service sadism are fairly common dynamics. But it's not something you see portrayed very often in kinky videos.

The point is that simply enjoying and receiving pain does not imply any act of submission. It can for some people, but it's not inevitable. Dominance, submission, topping, bottom, sadism and masochism are all richly complex, subtle and nuanced phenomena which frequently overlap and interact in the same individuals. Bottoms are not always masochists and not always submissives, and tops are not always sadists and not always dominants.

I'm interested in making videos which express some of the fascinating variety of kinky relationships, and from the positive feedback this video has already received, you're interested in watching them, too.


Giggling after the final "cut". That was fun ... and hot!
