Pandora Blake: Yes! I have to say I'm really enjoying the responses to this set, both on the site and on Twitter. It makes me feel very good to have internet folks appreciating the hotness of my boyfriend. I'm particularly enjoying that he seems to have a goth girl fan base :)
GotN: Goth girl fan base does NOT surprise me in the least, being a kind of clumsy goth myself =) I actually really wanted to ask you about that - do you get pride-shivers when people tell you how hot D is? Like, is there a showing off how hot he is element to photosets and videos?
PB: Very much yes. It makes me feel proud, delighted and very smug to hear people compliment him - it's like, yes, isn't he gorgeous, thanks for noticing, and he's MINE. I feel the same way when he dates new people to be honest - it always makes me appreciate him a little bit more and feel very pleased and proud when I see people being attracted to him
GotN: Ooh, yes I can definitely see that. Also, obviously am grateful, being one of the people who very much enjoys perving on his photosets.
PB: It is quite literally my pleasure.
GotN: This set in particular seems to have struck a chord with lots of people - and obviously me too. One of the things that really got me about it was that photo with the belt round his wrist - whose idea was that?
PB: Oh, that was entirely mine. When I was first looking through the unedited photos to remind myself what we had to work with, I had a chat window open with him, and a few pictures leaped out at me and gave me this involuntary physical quake of lust, so I posted them to him in the chat. That photo of the belt wrapped around his wrist was one of them.
PB: I was directing the set - which I can do with a very clear head when I'm neither modelling nor taking the photos - and I remember staging that shot. Neither D nor Matt really got the point of it, but I was determined I wanted it. When I looked through the photos again there was this double pleasure of seeing that shot - the pure rush of desire at seeing an image that struck one of my kinks so perfectly, and the sort of meta-delight at having successfully created something that was so perfectly porn for me. That was my aim with this set, to shoot something very self-indulgent, so it was lovely to feel so clearly that I'd got it right.
GotN: Ohhh, that is so hot! And it totally reinforces for me why the best porn is often the porn that's made by people who have exactly those kinks. Looking at that picture I would never have thought to explain that specific shot to anyone - I'd never have told a partner to do that or why it would be hot - but it gave me that exact same kick, and looking at it I realised that someone who didn't share the exact same belt-kinks with me would have been unlikely to stumble on something that hot by accident.
GotN: Also: by self-indulgent do you mean 'this is the set I'd make for myself to wank to'? :)
PB: That's exactly what I mean.
PB: Specifically, I wanted to shoot something to suit my own tastes without any reference to whether it might be popular or not. I'd never heard of a reverse striptease before, and I wasn't sure whether a solo male dom set would make any money, but that wasn't the point of this - it was to please myself. That's one of the reasons it's been so validating to receive positive responses to it. I love knowing that my specific porn tastes which aren't commonly catered to are shared by others!
GotN: Oh I totally see what you mean there - and although this is going to sound horribly gendered I think that's why it's so important for me, as a mostly-straight woman, to see female-directed porn. The female gaze is not something that can just be captured by copying male-gaze porn and making it softer, or focusing heavily on genitals, or whatever: it really stands out when you see something made by someone who is behind the camera feeling genuine, kinky lust for someone. Not sure if I've explained it that well, but yep - I've struggled to explain female gaze to people before, and I think from now on I'm just going to direct them to this photoset.
PB: So what is it about the belt-round-wrist that's so sexy for you?
GotN: Belts: sexiness beyond measure. I think of all the spanking implements they're my favourite. But it's not just that I love them: belts have something about them that many subby people can't resist. One of the most cited turn-ons for subs (in my general experience from sexy comments on my blog and etc) is that they love the sound that belts make when they're pulled out through the loops: that swish of a belt that says 'you're in trouble.' And then, on top of that...
GotN: Forearms are a stunningly hot feature, which does not get nearly enough love in my opinion. Biceps are often worshipped, but (I think I might be able to dig out the survey on this but not sure) forearms are one of the most frequently-cited turn-ons for women. Not sure what to call that - 'perv zones'? Lots of people perv on forearms, and yet they're rarely put front and center of a sexy scene. That belt-round-wrist thing combined D's gorgeous forearms with the symbolism of the belt, and then a slightly intimidating (in a domly hot way) blurred image of him in the mirror in the background behind. Unngh. So much hot.
PB: I LOVE forearms.
PB: For me, a strong looking forearm makes me think "I bet that person would be able to spank me really hard" more than a strong bicep does - perhaps because bicep worship is so common, it's more generalised rather than specifically a kink thing. (Although I do love biceps too.)
PB: That image is an interesting one - it doesn't prefigure any particular kink act; he's not wrapping it around his hand in preparation to hit someone with it. And yet the tension of the leather, the way it bites into teh skin of his wrist, the contrast between his smooth skin and the warm texture of the belt, and the firm grip of his hand, all suggest tension and strength and anticipation in a way that's incredibly powerful.
GotN: Oh yes! Strong forearms - and oh bracelets and tattoos on forearms too. Mmm. D's wearing quite a neat bracelet in that photoset as well, which draws attention to the forearm so nicely - the same way I'd wear a necklace to draw attention to a cleavage. More people should do this
PB: I love seeing that bracelet on him actually - it was a gift from a friend who made friendship bracelets for the whole friendship group in our favourite colours, and D wore his for ages. I still have mine too! It grounds the set in reality and reminds me that he's my real boyfriend with a life outside porn, as well as a super hot naked porn guy.
PB: So the reverse striptease. It was an idea I had ages ago, and I'm really pleased with the result. Does it work for you having him start naked and finish dressed?
GotN: YES! OMG so that was another thing I wanted to talk about. In general, I think my kinks tend towards guys who are either clothed or semi-clothed. This actually probably ties in to the hotness of bracelets and tattoos too: it's all about highlighting. Clothes draw your focus to a particular place. So in that photoset, you're kind of immediately plunged into 'oh, there's a seriously hot naked guy here', then as the set goes on, and the clothes go on piece by piece, it draws your attention to each feature. I LOVE it, and I would love to see more reverse stripteases in porn.
GotN: It actually reminds me a little of your calligraphy photoset with Adele Haze too - the words slowly covering the skin make you take your time looking at all the details of someone's body. So with D gradually covering himself over the course of the set, you get to go from full-on naked then take time to appreciate his forearms, the tone of his stomach, and each detail, before ending on his hands slipping into the leather gloves
PB: speaking of which, can we take a moment to just appreciate the hotness of leather gloves
GotN: ohhhh yes! Leather gloves are <3
GotN: Also: white shirts with black buttons, which you don't see much but which HOLY SHIT highlight D's hands as he's slowly buttoning up the shirt
GotN: I mean basically I am just 'splaining to you how hot your boyfriend is, but yeah :)
PB: It's all good!
GotN: I also wanted to ask you - is this your favourite D photoset? I've enjoyed loads of D on Dreams of Spanking, but I wondered if you have a favourite set or picture of him? Or as the director, do you love them all equally?
PB: The highlighting thing is an interesting one - I hadn't thought of it that way. For me, the reverse striptease isn't so much about revealing each feature as creating desire via unavailability. It's like, D is immediately available at the start so you see how yummy he is, but then as he goes from sleepy boy to gradually getting covered up, it has this slight distancing effect by making him seem older, more unavailable, and more dominant. For me lust has a lot to do with wanting without having, so for his body to go from revealed to covered increases the desire - as well as the specific clothes creating an aura of toppiness that has me squirming in my seat.
PB: This is my favourite D photoset right now, and I'm kind of obsessed with this picture that gives his beauty a rockstar pinup quality: I would totally have had that picture on my wall as a teenager. In fact I might make myself a print of it.
PB: But I'm also really fond of this set.
GotN: Oh I <3 Tangled With You too! You both just look so incredibly calm and happy in it. And I can definitely see why you'd have that rockstar picture on your wall - D has a really casually-hot vibe, like he's left the door to his rockstar dressing room open because he kind of hoped you'd walk in while he was getting changed.
PB: It's so lovely making porn with your lovers! I highly recommend it.
GotN: It's bloody wonderful for you to share it with us! I mean obviously we're kind of back to 'OMG your boyfriend is so hot' territory here, but on top of that it's incredible to see him through your eyes, if you see what I mean. I think it's a different perspective to the way it would be if you were strangers - there's a closeness as well as obviously your kinky eye, which picks up on the details that another director might not.
PB: Thank you! Full credit to Matt Christie as well for taking such superb pictures - he's got an amazing eye for light and composition, even if toppy men aren't his kink. I'd love to see more female photographers and directors shooting the men they love - I think you're right that the intimacy of shooting someone you're close to results in really special images. Here's to more sexy men in porn!
GotN: Amen to that!
All too often, trans women are fetishised and objectified in mainstream porn, not to mention erased from spanking porn entirely.
This is something Pandora wrote a while back, talking about which scenes were the favourites of Dreams of Spanking fans. It was in reference to the award-winning Houseboy, which features the fiery Eliza Grey and the adorable Tai Crimson. Tai, at the time of shooting, identified as genderqueer and happily played a male character in the film. But in the year or so since Tai’s debut shoot as a performer, Tai has come out as a trans woman. A perfect time, I think, to acquaint (or reacquaint) yourself with this absolutely gorgeous, cute as a button and wonderfully eloquent young person.
And what a wonderful introduction this photoset is. Radiating innocence in her school girl outfit, Tai slowly strips off her uniform. A shy bite of the lip occasionally crosses her face, as if she’s asking for permission to continue her reveal. She seems shy as she shows you her puffy, newly developing breasts; her utterly spankable bottom. But there's a cheeky glint in her eyes throughout, suggesting that should you wish to put her over your knee, she wouldn’t object ... too much.
Indeed, in the accompanying interview, Tai tells us with a wonderful candidness about how edgy her kinks get (I for one am dying to know just what else is on that “kink menu” of hers). She also talks about her evolving gender identity, making the decision to transition, and the side-effects of hormones on her body. All throughout, her rock-solid sense of identity and her openness and self-acceptance are practically tangible - not just in the interview also in the photo set too, which includes some tantalising glimpses of how much being looked at turns her on.
To me, growing up knowing next to nothing about sexuality apart from what I was taught in school and what was presented in the media, feminist and queer porn has been an education. It's offered a window into my own gender and sexual identity, helping me come to terms with my queerness, what I’m into and why that's okay. And watching and listening to Tai Crimson, I am absolutely certain that she will offer someone else a window into their own identity. So, come and get to know the future phenomenon that is Tai Crimson, and let this school girl school you.
How do I describe Vix Vixxxen? She's like the embodiment of all the cool I have ever wanted to be.
She is the riot grrl shouting on the front lines of a protest. In her latest photoset, dressed in stiletto heels and fishnet tights, wielding a knife ready to rip off her clothes, Vix is almost every girl I've ever had a crush on.
Vix Vixxen is the argument you have with your mum when she tells you that you can't get your nose pierced. She is my teenage angst and my adult lust all rolled into one.
When you look at porn – whether it's a romantic spanking video, a hard thrashing, or a personality-packed punk striptease photoset like this one – it's often hard not to project yourself onto the stars. When I watch someone getting spanked there's a part of my brain that's imagining it's me.
But when I look at Vix Vixxxen I feel more aspirational. I can't put myself in her position, because I am too busy being in awe of her cool. As she poses for the camera, smoking a cigarette, I remember times when I've tried to pull off the same look and not got it quite right.
As she bends over to show her ripped fishnets, I remember times I've done the same by accident – incompetently putting a finger through the net when I'm in the toilet, rather than the deliberate, cheeky rebelliousness of slashing at them with a knife or corkscrew.
Vix Vixxxen is all the cool punks and goths at parties who shared their vodka with me. She's the chorused 'YEAH!' in response to a lead singer shouting 'are you having a good time?!' at a metal gig.
She's the snarl you'd like to give when twats on the street catcall you. She's the middle finger you wish you could flip at your boss. Vix Vixxxen is the moment the bullied kid at school stops cowering from their tormentors and stands up to throw a punch.
But I know, of course, that behind all porn performers there are real people. It's just that sometimes the people – and the fantasies – that they create on camera, are so much more than what you see on the surface.
Vix Vixxxen's shoot is intensely sexy from the first picture - whether she's tearing at her knickers, hanging from the bars in her jail cell, or bending over in her red stillettos. And I could have spent this blog describing in detail just how hot every movement and pose and action is. But the sexiest thing of all about Vix is her don't-give-one-single-fuck attitude.
To paraphrase my Mum, from those teenage arguments so long ago: it's not what she does, it's the way she does it.
You'll see what I mean.
Two words to make any bumfan swoon: yoga pants. Two more: short shorts. This week's scene is not only a hot tease by a lady with a gorgeous bottom, it's a handy visual demonstration of just which clothes best show off a lovely bum. Pandora Blake is off on a date, and she just can't decide what to wear. So, from tight yoga pants to sexy short shorts, she shows you exactly what the options are, and just how nicely they all highlight the full curves of her big butt.
Personally, I'm a fan of yoga pants. No matter what shape your bottom, the tight fabric clings and hugs so well that – in my opinion – it'll look so deliciously spankable that it's pretty hard to resist. Despite the fact that they cover every inch of each buttock, they're so tight they're close to being naked. Obviously, Pandora works this outfit with exactly the style and confidence of someone who knows the appeal of a beautiful big bum.
Tight shorts are to a bottom what dangling jewelry is to a cleavage – they're like a highlighter, pointing right at something beautiful and saying 'look! Appreciate me!' When I'm going up the escalators on the tube, a quick glance up and I never fail to spot one or two bums in tight shorts or trousers that I just want to... Hmm. Smack? Bite? Squeeze?
All of the above.
There's something incredibly satisfying about a lovely big bum. My bum, like the rest of my body, grows and shrinks on a relatively regular annual cycle – getting smaller in the summer when it's too hot to eat much, then getting nice and big and plump just after Christmas when I've gorged myself on roast potatoes. While the title of the video – Does My Bum Look Big in This? is a playful homage to worries about weight and body shape, I love that the video celebrates the sexiness of a deliciously big butt.
There's something very satisfying – and, of course, spankable – about a bottom with full curves. A big bum that you squeeze into a pair of jeans, letting the fabric stretch tight and taut across your buttocks.
I have a pair of short shorts that only come out in winter – partly because I hate having to shave my legs, so I want to wear them with leggings, but partly because in the summer the shorts don't fit quite right. They hang off me a bit, looking deflated and a bit sad. In winter, when I've plumped up a bit, they fit just right – tight and sexy. It's not just the way they look that I like, it's the way that they feel – cupping and hugging me tightly.
In Pandora's video, I'm torn between the tight short shorts as my favourite outfit, or the sexy yoga pants. Of course, there are definitely merits to the sexy tight pink shorts too, and I suspect there'll be some who prefer Pandora's bottom in just a flimsy black lace thong - or kneeling on the sofa with her knickers pulled down and cheeks spread. Whatever your preference, though, I can tell you one thing for sure: if you like big butts, you'll adore this.
In this blogpost I want to talk about intimacy. There are a million different ways you can establish intimacy with a partner, but establishing intimacy in art is a much trickier thing. How do you invite the viewer into a particular book, play or, in this case, porn scene?
Well, Pandora does just that in this week's video – she literally invites people in.
Lodger Wanted is a POV femdom tease – Pandora Blake plays the sexy landlady who invites you, the viewer, into her home. From the beginning you're placed directly into the scene, with the camera showing your first-person perspective as you follow her from room. Pandora also gives you some pretty intimate instructions - “I think there might be a stain on the back of my skirt, can you have a look?" - and some angry words if you're caught peeking.
The concept of viewer involvement in porn is pretty fascinating - it wasn't until very recently that POV porn has been possible. For most of human history pornographic material was necessarily something you'd see remotely – in paintings or drawings or woodblock prints. I'm not aware of any of this material taking a 'point of view' angle – although I'd be interested to know if it ever has. Are there woodblock prints drawn from the point of view of someone receiving oral sex? I suspect it wouldn't have occurred to the artist to do it. Perhaps those who were rich enough could afford live performances, but most people could only be as close to the performers as pen and ink would allow.
I tried to find out when the first POV porn was made, and it looks like – as withmany porn innovations – it first appeared in Japan. In the late 1980s it started as a niche concept, then gradually took off.
Now, though, there are a number of ways in which porn producers and performers share intimacy with their audience. From camming to blog comments, twitter and video blogs, many performers speak directly to their viewers, sometimes as recorded messages and sometimes as live interaction. The internet is an interactive medium, and now more than ever porn consumers are able to collaborate in the porn they watch - make suggestions, request customs, and submit ideas that can be turned into hot new films. Lodger Wanted is one of a growing number of viewer requested scenes on Dreams of Spanking - others include Bathtime and The Stableboy.
Then there's POV porn – like this femdom tease video which invites the viewer to play the part of the prospective lodger, shown around Pandora's home while she flirts and teases, sashaying through the house and deliberately bending over to show off the way the tight skirt hugs her round bottom, and eventually removing her stockings and suspenders, before lounging naked on the bed and scolding you for watching her.
I like the idea of POV porn for a whole heap of different reasons. Firstly, it's pretty inclusive when you think about it – in this scene the "lodger" could be anyone, of any gender or body type. Secondly, there's an extra-sexy thrill from the feeling that the performer is addressing you directly. You're not a voyeur, you're a participant - the main character (in this case Pandora's coquettish landlady) is flirting with you.
A long time ago, playing Grand Theft Auto with a partner (I know, I know, it's not exactly the most PC of video games) we ended up in a discussion about strip clubs in games versus stripping at the cinema. Obviously there are some mainstream films with stripping scenes that are intensely hot – Salma Hayek performing a striptease with a live python in From Dusk Til Dawn, for instance – but there was something about visiting the strip club in Grand Theft Auto that both of us found more arousing. Even though it was repetitive, unrealistic, and nothing like a real strip club, it was happening to us in a way that film stripteases we'd seen had struggled to capture.
Part of it came from our involvement - we'd pressed the buttons to get our character into the club in the first place - but another significant factor was the fact that it was shot from our point of view. We were looking directly through our character's eyes, and having what felt like a more immediate interaction.
The same is true of other video games I've played. I'm not a fan of running around shooting things to collect random points, but give me a game like Mass Effect, where you build relationships with other characters and – if you're charming enough – eventually have sex with them? I'm sold.
I'm not the only one either – games developers and designers are currently working on innovative ways to use virtual reality to make our porn dreams come true. From simple POV sex videos to full-on interactive games, virtual reality hardware like the Oculus Rift means that a few years down the line, there'll be even more ways for producers to conjure the same feeling of intimacy.
Although sometimes it's good to sit back and watch, safe and sound behind a fourth wall that performers never break, there's something hot about putting yourself directly in the picture.
And if you agree, well, go and knock on Pandora's door – she's very welcoming.
When the new UK porn legislation came in, criminalising films showing any spanking that leaves lasting marks, we were advised to edit some behind the scenes footage showing performer consent together in the same video as the main scene. While it's frustrating to have to jump through hoops like this, when the whole concept of Dreams of Spanking is to make performer consent explicit in the surrounding contextual materials, this mode of working does have one silver lining - it means I've had to edit the behind the scenes videos at the same time as the main film, rather than leaving it until later. As a result, I'm staying on top of the behind the scenes editing for the first time ever, and we've uploaded behind the scenes videos, performer interviews or both alongside the fantasy film for the last seven weeks running!
The Surprise Present: Behind the Scenes
Performers: Pandora Blake, Ten Amorette
Behind the scenes during the filming of The Surprise Present in Los Angeles with Paul Kennedy and Alex Reynolds, including lots of making-of detail showing you the work that goes in to shooting a spanking film. Favourite moments in this include Ten exclaiming over how many bows Alex owns, 'flogger fondling', and some hilarious reactions to Pandora's directons - Ten saying "oh no!" when Pandora suggests she flog her some more, Alex mishearing "I'll give you permission to touch" as something else entirely, and Ten completely cracking up at "maybe Paul could pull out..."!
This was a fun shoot, and there are some really amusing moments in this out-takes film. Ten and Alex are a hoot to work with!
As well as the behind the scenes video, I've also uploaded twelve hand-captured behind the scenes screengrabs, highlighting some of the best, funniest, sexiest moments. Enjoy!
Merry Christmas! OK, I'll admit it – I'm feeling a teeny bit festive. I hope you're all enjoying the holidays, and that everyone enjoyed the gifts you got them. When I was spending the last week trying to rustle up Christmas presents I was disappointed I couldn't just buy everyone a subscription to Dreams of Spanking. (Although if you've a kinky friend or two, and you're looking for an ultra-last-minute present...?)
So in my festive state of mind I naturally honed in on the 'gift' aspect of our latest film. The story goes like this: Pandora is on the way home from work when she gets a text from her lover – gorgeous, mischievous spanking star Ten Amorette. Ten tells her she's got a surprise present for her, and from the grin on Pandora's face you can tell the gift is going to be smoking hot.
It is, of course, and Ten's utterly beautiful body is the perfect surprise gift. Stripped naked on the bed, and on all fours ready for a spanking, she's even unwrapped already! Who wouldn't be tempted, as Pandora is, to settle in for a long session of teasing play – spanking Ten with her hand and using the flogger to whip her into a hot, writhing mess of arousal?
Thing is, some of the best presents you can give are gifts to both of you. Ones your partner loves, but you also get pleasure from. Well, that's my theory at least – gifts that delight both the giver and the receiver mean you get two times the joy for the price of one.
So when Pandora starts spanking Ten's bottom, and Ten wiggles and moans with lust, it's pretty clear that the gift is one for both of them.
As it's the festive season, I thought I'd end on something a bit different this week. So instead of just giving you a link to this video and saying 'enjoy' (which I'm sure you will, by the way – it's steamy and intimate and oh so hot, and if you love girl-on-girl erotic spanking then it's pretty much tailor-made for you) I thought I'd also open up a bit of a discussion about surprise presents.
Personally, if I got a text like Pandora receives in this film, I'd hope to arrive home to find my guy (perhaps accompanied by a friend or two) standing over the bed with floggers and straps, ready to turn me bright red from neck to ankle. Or possibly ready for some intimate tying and torture, like in this smoking-hot interrogation photoset.
I imagine that he, if he got a similar text from me, would be hoping for the kind of spontaneous, sexy surprise which Erica Scott gives to Paul Kennedy in The Workaholic - and I expect he'd be a bit more appreciative than Paul was! What can I say? He loves lingerie and heels.
So: naked on all fours, sexy lingerie and high heels, a belt ready to dish out a thrashing, or something I haven't mentioned yet? If you got a text that primed you to rush home for a surprise present, what would you hope to see when you open the door and step inside...?
I'm still only just recovering from a fantastic shoot last week with new performers Alexander Knight and Richard Barton and others. The venue was stunningly beautiful, and things went incredibly smoothly. Over two long days it was hard work, but great fun too, and the quality of the performances from everyone was simply outstanding. I'll be processing some preview photos this week, and look forward to sharing them with you.
Meanwhile here's a fresh, funny spanking film that went up a couple of weeks ago. I'll always love the classic, traditional English punishment scenarios but I think variety is important, and there'll always be space on Dreams of Spanking for quirky, modern scenarios as well. As well as a storyline that's a little bit different, Corporal Punishment innovates by starring a hot young male switch who's as gorgeous as his female co-performers.
Will Savage works as a male stripper in real life, and this storyline gave him the opportunity to bust out some of his moves. His sexy striptease routine is playful and naughty, and shows off his toned body to perfection.
The shoot was hilarious - as you can see in the behind the scenes video, Will felt a bit self-conscious performing his routine without music (which I added later) but he carried on like a true professional, and the results are fantastic - despite a certain amount of giggling!
On a girls night in Caroline and Amelia hire a spanking strippergram, a hunk in uniform called "Corporal Punishment" whose photo shows off his lovely muscular arms. When he arrives, Amelia is stunned to discover that it's her new boyfriend Will. He hadn't told her he was a stripper - and neither of them knew the other liked spanking!
Amelia insists that Caroline firmly punish him for keeping secrets from her. And since they've already paid, he might as well do his sexy striptease routine. After that the girls can't resist the temptation to go over his knee and try out the spanking capacity of those strong-looking arms!
The scene wraps up with a vision of long legs and tight denim as Will takes both giggling girls over his knee for a double spanking. Even left-handed, that boy has one hell of a hard hand spank - as Caroline and Amelia discovered!
As a producer I'm all in favour of switch visibility, particularly showing switch dynamics between men and women. I wanted to release something around Valentine's Day which was a little bit different, and showed that male submission and switch dynamics can be just as sexy as the predictable male dominance and female submission of classic kinky romance. So far our male/female switch scenes have all been light-hearted and modern, but if you have any ideas for more traditional or historical scenarios that include a switch, please do send them in.
Here are some of my favourite behind the scenes moments from the filming of Corporal Punishment:
I recently blogged about our shoot with Lola Marie, the stunning new adult performer who debuted with Spanking Sarah earlier this year and is now merrily making her way across the UK spanking sites. It was our pleasure to shoot with her and to show you more of this lovely lady. Lola's first photoset is now online, where you can see her posing for for some portraits and glamour shots, and performing a seductive striptease. Lola has an infectious smile, a beautiful body, and a combination of coy, innocent mischief and womanly sexual power which is absolutely enthralling.
Introducing Lola Marie
Meet our newest cast member Lola Marie as she reveals her stunning body in this naughty striptease, pointing her toes in long rainbow socks, and bending over to show off her supremely spankable bottom!
I'm looking forward to publishing the spanking videos we shot with Lola, and the first one is currently scheduled to be released in mid-October. Watch this space!
I'm not a fan of the commercialisation of Valentine's Day, so was reluctant to join the throngs of marketeers insisting that the primary objective of the 14th of February was to have hot romantic sex with a lover, and their product could best help you achieve this. On the other hand, the date provided an ideal opportunity to step up the steaminess on this site a notch or two.
D and I shot our first ever boy/girl sex scene, Snip Snip (bonus points to anyone who can spot the reference) a couple of years ago, with photographer Tricia Sullivan. She's an old friend, and there was little of us she hadn't seen before. Actually if you're at all nervous about shooting hardcore porn for the first time I can recommend getting a friendly ex-lover behind the camera - none of us are particularly prone to sexual embarrassment, but our familiarity with each other definitely made things easier.
We played two scenes that day, both shot at home in natural light, both very candid and unrehearsed in feel. I'd say "amateur" if Tricia's photography wasn't of such a high professional standard; D and I certainly felt like a couple doing their thing rather than models performing for the camera.
As yet, this is the only sexually explicit shoot I've been on, but Tom and I are already talking about what we want to do for our first sex and spanking film (D isn't yet comfortable appearing in video, which is why he and I have only done photosets together so far). In seven years of doing professional modelling, I've always maintained boundaries and have never shot penetrative material for any other producer, wanting to keep work at this level exclusive to my own productions. The closest I'd come (erm... as it were) was going down on Lady Sonia's strap-on on my last shoot with her.
So, as a first time for both of us fucking on camera, and a rare sort of update for this website, I felt it deserved a special occasion. And when I realised the cut-away dress had accidentally formed a heart shape around my bottom, I couldn't resist the temptation to make it my Valentine's Day update. After all, you don't need to be partnered to enjoy porn.
As producer, I'd told D I wanted a scene which included a dress being cut or ripped off me, followed by some spanking. We'd also agreed between us that we were happy for things to get intimate if the mood took us. Beyond that, I handed control over to him and followed his lead. I trusted Tricia to capture the results on camera without my direction. The happy consequence was that I was able to turn my producer brain entirely off (much easier for photos than video), and D and I were able to sink deeply into our D/S connection without distraction.
So for me, this scene was very real, very electric, and extremely arousing. The cold steel of the scissors. My hyper-sensitive focus on each area of skin as it was revealed, turning entirely new parts of my body into erogenous zones. D's warm hands and tongue contrasted with the shivery threat of the blades, which were particularly affecting when trailed near my nipples and neck.
Feeling the scissors cutting the fabric around my bottom to expose just that area was particularly hot.
Hands bound above my head, the glass coffee table was not the most comfortable thing to lie on, but I felt pleasantly exposed and helpless. I remember finding the caning more difficult than I'd expected, and only later, when I saw the photos, realised that it had actually been quite hard.
At the time, it felt like we had indulged ourselves far more than is appropriate on a professional shoot, and I wasn't convinced that the resulting images would be publishable. I was pretty sure that the more sexual shots would be unflattering. But I'd had so much fun that I didn't care too much, and was happy to treat it as a learning curve.
So it was a delightful shock the first time I saw the pictures and realised the extent of Tricia's talents. I had no idea that it was possible for me to look good while fucking, especially when not thinking particularly about what I looked like. In fact, that unself-conscious honesty is my favourite thing about this photoset. Yes, I look into the lens from time to time; but the hottest images, for me, are the ones where D and I are drinking each other in, gazes locked, kissing or laughing or fucking or all three.
The scissors, the tease of exposed skin and the cane welts are all hot, but for me the most strongly evocative imagery is the pink flush on my neck and chest while I'm sucking D's cock; the one my lovers can use to guage when I'm approaching orgasm.
I'm not planning to steer Dreams of Spanking entirely in a sexually explicit direction: this sort of scene will be an occasional treat. I will only ever shoot hardcore scenes with real couples, because I find that genuine intimacy, affection and spark of sexual chemistry absolutely essential to enjoy fucking in porn. I also only really like hardcore scenes that include spanking as foreplay, so that makes it easy to put CP at the centre of any explicit scenes we shoot in future.
I'm excited and nervous to share so much online for the first time. But proud, too: there's nothing artificial about this. When D and I play, this is what it looks like. This is us at our most honest.
