Kink education has always been a big part of what we’re trying to do here. Dreams of Spanking is a porn studio, but it’s also a community: a place where spanking fans can find out what they like, what they want to try next and how to go about doing it in a way that’s fun and safe for everyone involved.
We got some great films out of our day shooting with Stephen, Kelley and Becci. By the end of the afternoon they’d been to school, undertaken a severe workplace discipline session and given Kelley a fantastic birthday surprise, and that wasn’t even all of it! Once the stories had been told, Becci found themselves with a beautifully warmed-up bottom - and, well, it seems a shame to waste it...
If you’d like to learn more about the mechanics of spanking, Show & Tell is a great place to start. All three performers bring some lessons of their own to the table, from Kelley’s tips on spanking stances to Becci’s description of how a sjambok is used. Of course, the film isn’t only educational; you’ll also get to see Becci stretched beautifully out across a spanking bench, gasping and squirming as Stephen and Kelley demonstrate some techniques.
Perhaps the most exciting thing of all about this film is the sjambok. It’s a favourite implement of Becci’s, and one of the first they were ever beaten with - but neither Kelley nor Stephen had used one before this was filmed. We’ve never featured one on the site before, so it’s been a new experience all round!
It’s very hard to get a spanking completely even. If your implement has any kind of flexibility to it - which many do, including most lighter canes - it’s going to connect differently on different parts of the skin, emphasised by the fact that bottoms have beautiful curves and aren’t a flat surface. Floggers and straps are often thuddier toward the base and stingier at the tip, which gives a gorgeous mix of sensations and can make the experience all the more powerful.
Sometimes, though, that’s not quite what you’re looking for. Even after the very best spankings you can be left with a lopsided feeling - from the way your implement of choice wraps around, from the precise angle your top was striking from, from the side they’re standing on while they spank you. You can switch sides, of course, which leaves your glow a little more even, but it’s never exactly the same.
The ultimate solution to this “problem” (and it’s a great problem to have!) is to get yourself two tops and two toys, one on each side, taking it in turns to beat you as evenly as possible. The result is a gorgeous rain of sensation, and - if this week’s release is anything to go by - a lot of good giggling fun.
Spread for the Strap was filmed at the end of a day-long shoot, and it’s one of our more beautifully candid films. Nobody is following a script or playing a part, and you can tell how much the performers enjoyed the chance to wind down together once the more intense parts of the day were over. By the end, Pandora’s bottom is glowing a bright, beautiful red - and the whole cast are left smiling and laughing after a hard day’s work.
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.
By the time you read this 2022 will be under way, but I’m writing it in the depths of the festive perineum - those strange, limbo-like days where we’re all living off leftover potatoes and half-finished tubs of Quality Street, striving to do as little as possible as the clock ticks us back toward real life. Usually for me this period ends with some kind of a party that at my age I’m still recovering from on January 2nd, but like last year this isn’t quite the time for it.
If, like me, you’re not quite sure how to mark the passing of the year in a way that feels meaningful when all your friends still seem to live inside GatherTown and Zoom, our final festive offering of the holiday season might give you some excellent ideas.
Caned at Midnight stars the gorgeous Rosie Bower, last seen at Halloween as swashbuckling pirate queen Rosie the Brave. This time the two performers have a whole different dynamic; they’re a happy couple, looking forward to a quiet NYE at home with a little something extra on top. As the clock counts down and the stripes rack up, it’s clear they’re both having a great time despite Rosie’s obvious discomfort at such a severe caning.
It’s a great start to the year for them both, and the perfect final release for our 2021 lineup - so head over and have a look, and keep the return to chilly January at bay for a few minutes longer.
I love the implied backstory to this scene. A couple, play partners; perhaps they spend time together as ordinary people in the real world and perhaps they don’t, but either way there’s this series of letters that pass between them. Each letter contains a set of instructions. Meet me at your place, in a nightclub, book this hotel room. Wear silk or strip naked; lay the implements out on the bed; present yourself in this or that way. Leave your next letter out on the nightstand with my name on the envelope. Wait for me.
And now we’ve got a chance to see inside this silent relationship, this secret that they’re both keeping not because they’re ashamed or awkward - both parties seem completely at ease with themselves here, in fact, each basking in their own enjoyment - but because there’s something undeniably sexy about it. Something silent and secret, a memory they can cherish for weeks until their next assignation.
Wait for me.
This week’s film is as topical as the lotions Lana Moon has probably been massaging into her patients’ particulars. When she realises that a particularly attractive patient of hers has been feeling a little lonely as a result of all the restrictions on visiting people in hospital, she decides to act the Good Samaritan and cheer them up a little - with some help from the pharmacy supply cupboard, of course! Sadly her boss doesn’t share her sense of fun, but in such critical times there’s no room to fire her - so Matron Blake has to get a little creative with Lana’s punishment.
Really, this one’s got it all. It’s sexy, it’s funny, the spanking is on point, the leather strap is gorgeous, and Lana’s bum looks incredible in that outfit. There’s a sort of campy irreverence to the whole scene that is decidedly British, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I’d found a new personal Dreams of Spanking favourite.
There’s a behind-the-scenes clip for this one too, which I always enjoy - “you should do an outtakes reel”, giggles Lana at one point, as she’s cracking jokes while stretched over Pandora’s knees with her bottom exposed. Given that we already do, that line was an obvious inclusion!
A few weeks ago in another blog post, I briefly lamented the universe’s paucity of femdom content that does not aim itself solely at masc subs, and lo - Pandora has yet again sought to redress that imbalance. You can’t say we never do anything for you!
Feminine Discipline is gorgeous: even from a purely artistic perspective these shots are lovely to look at. They make a beautiful gallery set, they work as well individually as they do together, and the whole collection really feels like a peek into dominant-Pandora’s own private boudoir.
Of course we’re not really here to look at these photos “from a purely artistic perspective”, are we. They are also, frankly, hot as hell; Pandora is dressed in a tight pencil skirt that hugs her every curve, her blouse unbuttoned just enough to leave you wanting more. The upskirt shots have a clandestine feel to them, letting you sneak a peek at her seamed stockings and the curve of her beautiful derrière. Throughout the set she toys with a variety of implements - hairbrush, strap, cane - and it’s clear to see she knows exactly how to handle them. And you, perhaps...
The real jewels of this set, though, are the photos that focus on Pandora’s face. So much of a D/s dynamic is played out in facial expressions, and these images replicate that beautifully. She looks stern, confident, relaxed; in some shots she’s giving you a glance of casual dominance, in others a mischievous smirk. She’s still deciding what she wants to do with you today, and she’s absolutely in control. This is the kind of photoset you’ll come back to again and again, always finding a new way to imagine what it is all that tension is building up to
Before we go any further I should warn you that The Abusive Therapist is a severe spanking film. It is an edgy fantasy direct from the kinky imagination of spanking starlet Tai Crimson. Here's the scene description:
Tai plays a vulnerable young woman struggling with anxiety and intrusive thoughts who begins a course of therapy. She soon finds herself mentioning her spanking and humiliation fetish - but she isn't prepared for the reaction of her therapist, Pandora Blake. Pandora recommends a course of 'corrective therapy', based on the idea that Tai's ideation about being spanked only persists because she doesn't really know what it feels like. Once Tai understands that in reality, spankings hurt and there is nothing sexy about being embarrassed and punished, Pandora declares that Tai will be 'cured'.
Once Tai is thoroughly humiliated, Pandora takes her over her knee and raises her skirt, giving her a no-nonsense firm hand spanking to show her what it really feels like. As the punishment progresses onto Tai's bare bottom, Pandora becomes ever more sadistic. She applies the stingy, vicious bath brush to Tai's cheeks with vigour, punctuating the spanking with a lecture about how sick and disgusting Tai is for fetishising spanking. Pandora makes it clear that she will continue to administer this type of aversion therapy until Tai gets over her 'perversion'. Ultimately, in this humiliation fantasy, is it the patient who is perverted, or the therapist?
Please note that this comes with emphatic trigger warnings for kink-shaming, stigmatising language, and emotional and physical abuse of a vulnerable character by a mental health professional.
DIsclaimer: there is nothing wrong with having a spanking fetish, and this is definitely not how therapists should behave.
I was quite nervous about watching this scene, because while I am dominant I am not really comfortable delivering humiliation. It feels wrong, especially when it involves shaming someone for their kink. The idea of watching this film definitely put me outside my comfort zone. When Pandora (as the performer not the character) admitted how difficult she found it, I could really empathise. However, I should know not to worry when watching a Dreams of Spanking production, because this is really well done. This roleplay is very much led by the performers, and clearly shown that it is done with full consent (and a fair amount of enthusiasm from Tai).
The main film is book-ended with cuts of the performers laughing and joking behind the scenes. For me this really helped, and eased a lot of the concern I had about this type of humiliation. Seeing Tai having a great time before the in-character bit begins helped me relax and enjoy the film as a hot fantasy.
Tai has such an expressive face and a few times the camera zooms in on her expression. I loved the way she tries not to show her joy and excitement about the prospect of being spanked, but sometimes the mask slips and we see the arousal on her face. At one point Pandora tells her that only sick little perverts have the thoughts she does, and I noticed Tai let just an edge of a smile slip through. I found this film truly fascinating to watch because of these glimpses of Tai's enjoyment, and because of the energy in the roleplay. The way it all comes together feels very respectful, but at the same time very realistic.
Pandora does a great job of making the therapist a believable (and horrible) character, despite the outrageous and untrue things she is saying. The spanking is convincingly hard and very accurate, and Tai’s bottom bruises beautifully. It starts with hand spanking, and moves through a few spanking implements finishing with a vicious split-tailed tawse. The final close-up of Pandora with a slightly evil looking grin on her face, stroking the tawse while watching Tai leave the room, is perfection and finishes the scene perfectly. If you enjoy humiliation play I think this is going to be a must-watch film for you.
The Spanking Rep is a playful girl/girl switch scene starring spanking superstars Amelia Jane Rutherford and Caroline Grey alongside Pandora Blake. I understand Caroline Grey doesn't make many spanking videos any more, so this film (the last one she had lined up on Dreams of Spanking) is a rare treat.
Normally one finishes a spanking scene by applying cocoa butter to a bruised bottom but in this case, the film opens with Pandora rubbing lotion into Caroline's red bottom - and it works. The premise is a fourth-wall breaking look behind the scenes on a spanking video set. Director Pandora has just finished shooting with performer Caroline, and they are both tired and happy after the day's work. Since Pandora tells me this was also the last scene they shot that day in real life, I don't think it took much acting!
Watching this film, I found that it was really easy to forget that it was a scripted storyline; I found it totally believable. Everything feels so natural; from the slight awkwardness of Amelia, the spanking implement saleswoman who knocks on the door to show off some samples of her company's new range, juxtaposing perfectly with the casual ease of Pandora and Caroline, who seem utterly at home with the world of spanking. The combination made it easy to become completely invested in what was happening.
This film is great fun. All of the women seem to be really into spanking and being spanked. I particularly liked Pandora’s calm confidence, and the way she tested each item on her palm before using it to spank her friend's bottom.
My favourite part however was Caroline’s anxious excitement. Her bottom is already well roasted after her shoot, but since Pandora seems hungry to receive a spanking herself, Caroline eagerly steps in. I loved her gleeful delight at delivering a punishment, combined with the nerves due to lack of experience. It was adorable, relatable, and Caroline's acting is absolutely perfect. I’ve been the one who was learning how to spank, and I know how hard it is to gauge strength and aim, so Caroline's performance really put me in her shoes.
The camaraderie between the three ladies is delightful, and it genuinely feels that they are having fun. I spent a fair part of this video wishing I could join in, and the rest marvelling at these gorgeous kinky ladies and their wonderful chemistry. I love how they take turns trying the different implements on each other, it was fascinating to watch the various techniques and methods they had for taking aim.
As someone who very much enjoys delivering a punishment that leaves a nice reminder on a bottom, one of the things I loved about this scene was getting to compare the different implements, and the way they leave very different marking patterns. This video contains an abundance of pretty red stripes on very sexy bottoms.
If I had to choose, I'd say my favourite was the light tan coloured strap. I think the soft suppleness of it is very deceptive. Almost immediately after the first hit you can see a red stripe appear where the end has hit Caroline’s bottom, and after a few more strokes it has developed into a lovely red mark. Plus, it makes such a great swooshing crack. I think this strap is as close as I’ve seen to an implement that makes a whip crack noise without being a whip. I really liked it - if Amelia knocked on my door with these spanking implements for sale, I think this is definitely a toy I would buy to use on someone myself!
Three gorgeous ladies with a great kinky connection, enjoying switchy spanking fun - why wouldn’t you want to watch this video? The Spanking Rep is a light-hearted spanking roleplay that combines silliness and believability with some great spanking action. Check it out - and when you've watched it, leave a comment and let me know which implement you'd want to take home with you!
A few years ago a news story broke online which caused a stir amongst spanking enthusiasts. Doctors in Siberia had been promoting a new "whipping therapy" to treat patients suffering from addiction and depression. A 2005 article describes how "Russian scientists from the city of Novosibirsk, Siberia, made a sensational report at the international conference devoted to new methods of treatment and rehabilitation in narcology. The report was called “Methods of painful impact to treat addictive behavior.”" The idea is that addiction and depression often are caused by decreasing production of endorphins - and the pain caused by corporal punishment can stimulate endorphin receptors and rekindle the "production of happiness". The scientists recommended that consenting adults judged psychologically fit for the treatment receive a course of thirty sessions, each consisting of 60 cane strokes on the buttocks, accompanied by counselling and therapy.
Although the therapeutic effects of corporal punishment practised by enthusiasts can hardly claim clinical success, all of us who enjoy spanking know how beneficial it can be. Personally, I find that spanking - particularly caning - grounds me in my body, making me feel calm and centred. Being physically punished focusses me on my breath, in the moment, and quietens my busy mind. When you're being caned, you aren't thinking about anything else.
I find it reduces anxiety and irritability, increases my sense of my own resilience and makes me believe I have the power to tackle the things I'm struggling with, and increases my zest for life. Plus if it's done by the right person in the right way it can be very sexually exciting too.
I'm not a doctor, and it would be presumptuous for any of us to claim that our spanking practice is seriously rooted in medical science. But the idea of spanking as a form of treatment approved by the medical establishment is an appealing fantasy. Plus, it's an excuse for me to pull out my nurse uniform...
In The Russian Treatment, patient Mike Pain has admitted himself to a specialist clinic after suffering from depression and malaise. The clinic is trialling an experimental therapy which uses the application of corporal punishment, beginning with hand spanking in the first session, then - in part 2 - escalating to the strap and, finally, the cane.
The treatment has many benefits. Spanking boosts the circulation and triggers the production of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. Patients report that it reduces anxiety, relaxes them, and improves sleep and mood. Nurse Pandora is careful to explain everything before asking Mike to sign the consent form - but it turns out that Mike doesn't take much persuading.
Lying over the nurse's knee on the bed, Mike surrenders to a firm hand spanking and deep bottom massage. He seems to take to the therapy very quickly... so quickly in fact that one can't help wondering whether this is the first time he's experienced something like this.
One week later, it's the final session of Mike's course of treatment. In the intervening time he's received daily spankings, including applications with the strap and cane; six strokes from Nurse Molly. Now, Nurse Pandora gives him another dose of the leather strap, administering ever harder strokes as Mike kneels on the wooden stool at the foot of the bed, his whole body rocked by the sharp blows.
Finally, it's time for the last caning of the treatment. On the nurse's recommendation, he receives twelve very hard strokes - a level of punishment that not every patient can endure. On all fours on the bed, Mike's upturned bottom is exposed - and his groans show that the pain is real. Still, as he breathes into each strokes, it's clear that the treatment is having the intended effect.
I really enjoyed making this two part nurse spanking film with Mike Pain and videographer Nimue Allen. It's a fun, satirical take on the Siberian medical caning story, and I think you can tell from the camp dialogue how much the set-up amused us. But there's also an authentic side to this scenario, from the genuinely hard cane strokes Mike bravely takes, to the exploration of the therapeutic benefits of spanking. If spanking for health and wellbeing interests you, you could do worse than to start with the breathing techniques advocated by Nurse Pandora in these films. Just let the pain flow through you... and remember to exhale.
