Fauni Cate is very much My Type. He’s punky, pierced, and he wears more black eyeliner than I do. When Pandora sent me his intro photoset the other week, I melted a little bit, and had to spend a couple of minutes in a puddle on the floor before I could start writing the copy.
This week’s scene - his first ever spanking film - delivers everything I’d hoped for. Fauni has just returned from Pride, and he has to face the wrath of his strict uncle Dr Richard Barton, whose authoritative, no-nonsense spanking style I completely adore. In this scene Dr Barton definitely plays the villain, explaining that while Fauni lives in his house, he must suppress his true queer self, wipe the makeup off his face, and learn to conform.
It’s an interesting dynamic, because I don’t want the homophobic uncle character to win - I want Fauni to fight back and emerge triumphant. And, as a massive fan of guys wearing eyeliner, naturally I don’t want him to take the makeup off.
But at the same time, as a spanking fan, I want Fauni to get spanked. I really want Dr Barton to take him over his knee and smack his bottom while delivering a stern lecture. And that, of course, is exactly what he does.
I love that the Dreams of Spanking team don’t shy away from having ‘goodies’ and ‘baddies’. After all, while there’s a delicious hotness about spankings that are nurturing, and done out of care, there’s also a hotness about a mean old spanker delivering a disproportionate or unjust punishment.
There’s so much grey space between these dynamics. For instance, the caring spanking in Little Ten is worlds away from the vicious and disproportionate beating Pandora imagines for herself in Pandora’s Belt Whipping Fantasy - and the Dreams of Spanking archive is full of scenarios exploring all the nuance and complexity inbetween.
Dr Barton had to do some serious acting to play the character of Fauni's repressive uncle who spanks him for attending Pride. Fauni, on the other hand, was playing a role closer to his actual self - although thankfully divorced from his real home experiences. Check out Fauni’s pre-shoot interview for more discussion of this - he and Pandora chat about the fact that his character is the ‘goody’ in this scene, and how character choices can often have a big impact on the way different punishments feel. Is it hotter (or easier) to play a character closer to yourself, as Fauni does in this scene? And does he have a preference for strict tops, or those who are more nurturing?
I’ve probably spoken before about my personal preference - in fantasy at any rate - for beatings that are unjust. In this scene, although Fauni’s spanking isn’t frighteningly severe (just enough to turn his bum a deliciously dark red), the dynamic of being spanked at the hands of a homophobic, cruel uncle adds an extra layer of atmosphere.
So, now that I’ve told you about the scene (and you should totally go and watch it if you haven’t already) let’s get back to my current favourite subject - Fauni.
This job is one of the easiest in the world, because I get to write about amazing porn. Every scene has a unique tone, and something in particular that jumps out and strikes me as particularly horny. But every now and then there’s something a bit more - a performer who melts my heart (and my knickers) on screen in exactly the way I suspect they would if I brushed past them on the tube. Whether it’s a look, a way of speaking, or the hot way they roll up their sleeves before delivering a spanking, there are some things that just turn me back into a teenage girl, having crushes on celebrities and wanting to put their posters on my bedroom door so I can stare at them for ages. Fauni’s like that. Punk and queer and pierced and beautiful.
Please do welcome him to the site, because I for one hope we’ll see a lot more of him.
Our latest film is based on a true story, and when I tell you that it's to do with probation officers and caning as punishment, I hope you'll be as intrigued as I was.
First things first – check out this hot F/F caning scene, and see if you can guess which elements of it are inspired by real life. When you've finished watching, read on for the details...
In this scene, Molly Malone plays the fierce (and incredibly judgemental) probation officer who seems to be putting some pretty unreasonable demands on Nimue Allen. When she tells Nimue that she must submit to housing inspector visits once a week, Nimue kicks back – and I think rightly so!
But Molly's got an idea up her sleeve to help 'persuade' Nimue to comply – she sends Nimue to the cupboard in the corner of the room, and orders her to open it and look inside.
Now, here's where the porn film diverges from the real-life story. Naturally, because it's Dreams of Spanking, the scene builds to a painful and deeply sexy climax, as Molly uses the cane on Nimue's bare bottom – searing hot red stripes into her bare flesh as she winces and gasps.
In real life, though, the cane wasn't used except as a rather clever deterrent. Here's the original story, as told to Pandora by a Dreams of Spanking member:
“She was on a probation order (divorced women with kids then could be put on an order in contested circumstances to protect the kids). In the early days she was very resentful, and when her probation officer (who she came to adore by the way, they ended up great friends) asked for an assurance from her on something and she refused to give it, he thought for a moment, then told her to walk to a cupboard, open it, look inside - then close it and come back and sit down.
She went off in a strop, opened it, took in the long thin school cane, and in her words "nearly wet my knickers" - then returned to her seat and promptly answered in the positive when the question was put again. She wasn't to know that probation officers lost the power to use the cane - on juveniles - in the 1970s, he just never cleared his cupboard."
I found this completely fascinating – it's surprising just how recently people were allowed to use canes for corporal punishment in the UK. As someone for whom the cane has only ever had sexual connotations, I can't imagine what it would be like to have the threat of this hanging over you for real. It's certainly enough to truly shock Nimue Allen's character, and give even Molly's sadistic probation officer pause for thought.
I think the scene works even better because the time period in which it's set is so close to that where caning might have been a possibility. While corporal punishment for juvenile offenders was phased out in practice in the mid-20th century, a bit of Googling tells me that it wasn't until 1978 that the European Court of Human Rights explicitly ruled that judicial birching contravened article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. And, of course, it took much longer for corporal punishment to be phased out in schools and in the home.
At the time this film is set (the mid-1980s) corporal punishment was technically still legal in all schools in the UK – it was only phased out of state schools in 1987, and remained legal in private schools until as late as 1999. So it's pretty plausible that Nimue (who by the way sports some pretty spectacular eighties hair in this) wouldn't be totally sure that it was illegal for her probation officer to beat her.
It's pretty shocking to me that punishment caning was only fully abolished very recently in the UK. Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that only last year Justice Secretary Chris Grayling (a man who wouldn't recognise human rights if they gave him an illegal six-of-the-best) seriously suggested the reintroduction of corporal punishment for juvenile offenders – the same kind of treatment that Nimue is subjected to in this film.
Maybe it's my upbringing, and the fact that I've never been caned as punishment, but I always tend to assume that the cane, slipper, hand spanking, and other forms of authorised corporal punishment died out in the 1950s. This scene is a bit of a history lesson as well as a seriously hot F/F caning – and because the punishment is so deeply unfair (not to mention illegal) I'm delighted that Nimue comes back with her badass eighties side-ponytail and gets her revenge at the end of the scene. What kind of revenge? Well, you'll have to watch it to find out...
Sometimes a lover will whisper a particular fantasy in my ear, and my heart beats extra-fast because it presses exactly the same buttons as fantasies I've had myself in the past. This week's scene is that feeling made flesh.
Alex Reynolds likes edgy scenes and harsh roleplay where there's a struggle or an abuse of authority. She likes disproportionate punishments and begging and screaming and beating.
And so do I.
'Playing Truant' doesn't just float my boat, it's almost measure for measure one of the scenes that's played out in my head ever since... well... ever since I started fantasising.
Paul Kennedy plays an angry, predatory truant officer, who's been watching Alex behave like – his words – a 'little slut.' She skips school and fools around with boys, and he's been watching her, clearly enjoying the show and scheming how to take advantage. He collects enough information that he can not only scold her, but blackmail her to submit to his violent, nasty urges.
As she squeals and begs him to stop, he punishes her far more severely than she deserves – a vicious tawsing across her naked buttocks and oh-so-sensitive thighs.
Alex Reynolds and Paul Kennedy are a couple in real life, and I really appreciate their candid discussion in the performer interviews accompanying this film. Alex explains that this is the kind of scenario she enjoys most – rough scenes where Paul abuses his authority to dish out cruel punishments. Paul's demeanour in the interview is so different from his character in the film that it's clear this sort of role is very different to how he actually is – and both partners explain what they find so liberating, and so rewarding, about exploring these different roles in scene.
Paul's character is certainly a nasty piece of work in this scene, as he strips Alex to the waist and roughly fondles her breasts, before bending her over for the tawse. He frequently shoves a hand between her legs as she squirms away, and grins with evil delight as he paints vivid red stripes onto her bottom and thighs. And in case you're worried, the camera stays on the couple after Pandora calls “cut”, to show Alex snuggling up to her lover, thanking him for bringing her desires to life.
I might start using this film as an instructional video. As someone whose most often-used phrase in bed is 'be mean to me', I've now got this bookmarked so that when I want to show just how mean I can say 'like this'. Beat me like I'm a naughty schoolgirl caught playing truant. Beat me like I'm a helpless young woman entrapped by a very nasty man.
It's not often we get to see a spanking film that shows sexual coercion as well as corporal punishment – and it might make me uneasy if the love Alex and Paul have for each other didn't shine out of the screen. If you are worried, I recommend you watch the interview before you watch the film – it's an in-depth discussion of kinky sexuality by two very articulate, experienced players, who are perfectly comfortable sharing their darker side with each other – and with us.
It's a seriously sexy treat for me to see have two talented performers act out something that's so closely matches one of my own fantasies, and if you're keen on this type of edgy, harsh punishment then I'm sure you'll love it too. From the words Paul chooses to humiliate Alex, to her well-acted misery and fear, there is so much in this scene to love.
I don't think there's any way to end this post other than with a huge thank you to Paul and Alex, for sharing this aspect of their play dynamic, and for such a smoking hot interpretation of the things that happen in my head.
Have you had a similar experience with a particular Dreams of Spanking scene? I love the idea of sharing a specific film with a lover, and saying 'look! This is what my fantasy looks like!' Which scene is your closest match?
Storytelling is sexy. Whether it's written, audio, or dramatised on screen, storytelling can make the difference between something that's hot while you're watching it, and something that stays with you for a long time afterwards.
When I write the blogs for Dreams of Spanking, it's always important to pick the right key phrases so that people can find scenes during search. Judicial caning, hand spanking, over the knee, etc – it means that everyone knows what they'll get if they click through, and also serves to get people horny. If you're anything like me then the phrase 'over the knee' probably conjures instant hot mental images, so if a scene involves that kind of punishment I'll make sure to be clear about it.
But the problem with this kind of directness is that there are lots of other more nuanced things that might be particularly erotic, but that aren't as instantly recognisable. Let's face it – lots of people search for 'six strokes of the cane' but fewer people search for 'depersonalised punishment' or 'endurance punishment'. That's where storytelling comes in.
Depersonalised punishment is a really interesting thing to explore – the idea that someone is receiving a beating because they have to rather than because they specifically deserve it. Rituals and ceremonies are both great vehicles for this: the punishment can be impersonal because it's not an individual need but part of a greater story.
Our new film, The Clone's Training, is sci-fi porn that fully explores this concept. Clone number eight – played by the gorgeous David Weston – is being drilled in the nuance and detail of the behaviour of his progenitor, the Crown Prince. Identical genetically, the clone and the Crown Prince are impossible to tell apart just by looking. Birthmarks and scars have all been faithfully reproduced, and the clone now needs to perfect his behaviour so he can infiltrate the royal family and 'become' the prince.
Instructor Pandora Blake gives firm and strict directions: stride purposefully, keep your chin up, hand behind your back. Every movement, in other words, must match the Prince's own gestures. And, of course, he must also be marked so that any blemish on his body matches exactly the ones on the Crown Prince.
A punch to the hip should replicate a bruise the Prince sustained, but to truly fool the medical scanners, clone number eight will have to have a six stroke judicial caning, just as the military Prince received only the day before...
You don't often see sci-fi porn, probably because most people associate it with either huge budgets or crap special effects. But there's a wealth of hot potential in science fiction, and you don't need CGI to make the concept work. Dystopic worlds in which individuals must behave a certain way. 1984-style future societies where citizens unquestioningly obey. And, of course, the deliciously sexy possibilities of armies of identical human-looking robots (I'm looking at you, Battlestar Galactica, with your sexy Cylons) and cloning technology.
This film plays on the clone scenario to dish out an incredibly clinical, depersonalised punishment. While many will watch this because they just love caning stories, others will be aroused by the impersonal nature of the punishment itself. The medical officer and instructor, played by Pandora, is concerned only with shaping clone number eight into as close a copy of the Prince as possible. As a consequence, when she strikes him with the cane it's not in anger or lust, but with a calculated necessity. And when he bends over to receive the strokes it's not because he feels he deserves them, it's because he is so used to obedience that it doesn't occur to him to question why he has to go through this. He just knows he must fulfil his destiny.
When you've watched The Clone's Training, if you're after more porn with amazing stories, it's well worth exploring Dreams of Spanking's 'sci-fi and fantasy' tag. The Royal Wedding is an audio story about a medieval princess, featuring an amazing public flogging which – again – is an impersonal ritual, but has more significance when told from the perspective of the princess who endures it. I also really like 'Psychic Weapon C' – another sci-fi porn story, but here the pain is used as a means to extract information. It's not quite as clinical, because the victim is actively fighting against the beating, but the fact that it's administered by henchmen makes it – in my opinion – an awesome example of pain being dished out as a matter of unflinching necessity.
So that's why storytelling is sexy – it's not just about a simple act, it's about the before and after, the build up and the tension. I could watch any scene in which a beautiful guy gets six of the best, and be delighted to have seen it, but the story turns it into something I think about for a long time. Not least because I can't help imagining exactly what happened to clones one through seven...
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.'
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.
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.
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.
Hands up who loves school? Well, school punishment scenes, at any rate. Even if you didn't enjoy your time at school, and dreaded getting detention when you were younger, there's something about school fantasy as an adult. Personally I think there's an irresistible appeal about both of our latest school-themed Dreams of Spanking updates.
Alexander Knight stars in the amazing film 'Unearned Punishment', suffering a harsh-looking caning from headmaster Dr Richard Barton. There's a delicious build up to his undeserved punishment caning as he stands with Pandora Blake outside the headmaster's office, both wincing in sympathy as they overhear the swish and crack of the cane, and the tortured cries of poor Molly Malone being beaten inside.
Check it out if you love school caning stories, and especially if you (like me) love Alexander Knight – he has an exceptional pain face, and looks especially cute in grey school shorts. It's probably because it's the start of summer, but I have a real thing for shorts right now. Luckily this video will keep me topped up on shorts-based filth for a while!
We've also got an amazing schoolgirl spanking photoset for you, and a bonus video to go with it. If you're a fan of the slipper, as well as Pandora's lovely bottom, check out 'Schoolgirl's Secret'. Pandora gets dressed up in a tight school skirt, complete with shirt, tie and inexcusably sexy knee-high socks, then treats herself to a solo spanking.
It's a brilliantly intimate video – just Pandora and the camera – and if you've ever wanted to watch a schoolgirl fantasy behind closed doors, as it were, then this is the perfect opportunity.
When Pandora sent me Her Married Sister to watch, she gave it a content warning: “Our sympathies are with Maddy's character, Dreams of Spanking does not endorse patriarchal power structures ;)” I couldn't help but laugh. That's one of the things I love about this site - Pandora takes traditional fantasy scenarios and creates playful, beautiful, hot videos that subvert these old tropes rather than reinforcing them.
In this vintage spanking film, the 1950s context means that although it's terribly unfair, we know that Christy is within her rights at the time to dish out punishment to Maddy. The hotness comes just as much from the underlying power play as from the gorgeous bottoms.
In 'Her Married Sister' Christy Cutie is eager to exert authority over her older sister Maddy Marks. Now that she's married, Christy considers herself to be in charge of household matters, and she thinks her sister must be punished for giving orders to the staff.
Maddy is not just upset and humiliated – she's outraged! Although she submits to the spanking, she protests and squeals with frustration throughout. Of the pair, she's clearly the one most keen to break out of the traditional roles – like Mad Men's Peggy Olsen she's raging against an old-fashioned system that gives married women greater respect.
I sympathise - it must be hard enough having to put up with old-fashioned sexist views that say a woman is more valuable when she's attached to a man, but to have to let your younger sister put you over her knee and spank you? I'd be as unhappy as Maddy is.
These two ladies are absolutely stunning - Maddy with gorgeous red hair and a perfectly-shaped bottom, tall and willowy in beautiful contrast with Christy Cutie's luscious curves. They're not just different in looks, though – from the way the sisters bicker back and forth you can tell they have very different outlooks. Maddy's outrage is made more exciting by the fact that Christy is clearly revelling in the rules that give her the upper hand, giggling and smiling like the cat that's got the cream. Each smack on her older sister's bare bottom underlines her new-found authority.
I'd continue the Mad Men analogy, but although Christy's got the gorgeous looks of a Joan, I'm not sure any character in the series is as delighted with the old-fashioned status quo as Christy seems to be! Not only does she think it's her right to spank her older sister, but she's thoroughly enjoying every stinging smack. From her arrogant assertion that 'I'm in charge' to her giggles and grins when her sister squirms under her firm hand, I'm certain this won't be the last time Christy insists on giving her sister a bare bottom spanking.
When this week's video arrived in my inbox I was so excited. I've really been looking forward to this final chapter in our Victorian spanking trilogy, in which both Alexander Knight and Molly Malone have already felt the sting of old-fashioned domestic discipline.
In chapter one Alex was spanked by his strict stepmother, and Molly took him over her knee with a distinctly gleeful delight, keen to establish herself as a powerful force in the household. In chapter two, Molly's husband Dr Richard Barton returned home and corrected his wife with some calmly authoritative marital discipline for taking matters into her own hands.
In this final chapter, both strict stepmother and stern pater familias present a united front against young Alex. The poor boy is forced to bend over for a thrashing with the leather belt, while a triumphant Molly witnesses his humiliation.
Richard and Molly are utterly intimidating as they stand together by the fireplace – exactly as proper Victorian disciplinarians should. Stern, calm, authoritative, you can tell by Alex's trembling voice that he knows he won't be able to argue his way out of punishment.
The build-up to the beating is thrilling – Dr Richard Barton scolds Alex sternly about his behaviour, peppered with all the language that makes the Victorian period such fun for for spanking play. Alexander is told that he looks like a 'dandified fop' - and Dr Barton isn't furious, – he's 'very very displeased'.
What sends shivers down my spine is the very real look of fear on Alexander's face. I get the impression that he's so deep into his role that he's no longer entirely acting - the stern Dr Barton instils a genuine terror - exactly the kind you'd feel if you were really standing before him, waiting to be given a hard thrashing with the belt.
As he bends over, nervously presenting his bare bottom for the punishment, you can see that it is still red raw from the over the knee spanking he got from Molly Malone in chapter one. However, this beating puts that one in the shade.
Alex's facial expressions make for compelling watching. When someone's getting spanked I like to know just how much it's affecting them - if you're the same then Alexander doesn't disappoint. From his terrified face after the first stroke to his gasps of shock as the belt lashes his bottom, you can tell the punishment is a severe one.
This thrashing is made even hotter by our knowledge of the relationship between the characters. Unrepentant Molly watches with a face like the cat that got the cream. She had previously threatened Alexander that her husband would take her side - and now she's totally vindicated. There can be few things more embarrassing for a young man than to be punished while a woman watches. Dr Barton is belting the boy because he believes it's the right thing to do, but Molly seems to take a sadistic pleasure in Alexander's suffering, and enjoys his cries of pain with undisguised delight.
Alexander does his best to be stoic and brave, but towards the end he can't help it - this is such a hard belt whipping that he breaks position and chokes back some sobs. At the ninth stroke I was wondering whether he'd make it to the end without begging for mercy.
Want to find out if he did? Of course you do.
In order to really knock someone down, first you've got to build them up. That's why, when Alexander Knight walked into the first shot of this latest video, I rubbed my hands with glee. Dressed in an incredibly smart outfit, complete with waistcoat and bow tie, he looks dignified, posh, privileged, and the ideal candidate for being taken down a peg or two.
Molly Malone's strict stepmother character is the perfect person to do it: severe and authoritative, she is clearly determined to make Alex see the error of his ways. The build up to his punishment is beautiful power play, partly because of his utter astonishment that his own stepmother intends to physically punish him – he protests that she is “barely a year older” and the idea of her spanking him is “utterly, utterly ridiculous”. Yet there's a delicious anticipation as we know – from Molly's firm reprimands and barked instructions – that this is a power struggle she will most certainly win.
After the intense chastisement at the beginning, I'd have expected Alexander to be meek and humble as he accepts his inevitable fate. But it's infinitely more fun than that – as Molly delivers smack after smack onto his lovely bottom, he continues with his outraged protestations. She grips him tight around the waist to keep him in place as he's spanked, and you can see him growing redder in the face as well as the arse – it's the perfect humiliation.
As I say, it's far more fun to knock someone down if they're on a pedestal to begin with, and my favourite thing about this video is watching Alex go from blustering surprise to outraged resistance, and finally settling in to anguished acceptance of his fate. About four and a half minutes in his expression twists into a reflection of his pain, and by seven minutes he's twitching and clenching his teeth with every smack of the paddle.
Molly plays her part to perfection too – from the high-necked dress and old-fashioned bonnet, reminiscent of a Victorian governess, to her clipped tones and barked orders, she is every inch the strict stepmother. The way she holds Alex so firmly across her lap as she delivers a hand-spanking and some hard smacks with the paddle show that she is practised in doing this – it makes you wonder just where her character learned to spank so beautifully, and if she's been on the lookout for an opportunity to wield the paddle on Alex's bottom...
Pandora tells me that this is the first in a three-part series, and I cannot wait for part two, which sees the arrival of Alex's father – Molly's husband – played by Dr Richard Barton. This is going to be awesome – in 'Spanked by Stepmother' Molly tells Alex that her husband would thoroughly approve of her dishing out domestic discipline to her stepson, and Alex wasn't quite brave enough to call her bluff. I can't wait for the second instalment to see if she was really correct...
So keep an eye out for part two which is on its way soon, and in the meantime enjoy Part 1, with Molly Malone as the strict stepmother and Alexander Knight as the naughty stepson who is eventually stripped of his dignity - as well as his trousers.
Our new M/M film The Water Fight explores the themes of unfair punishment and spanking on a wet bottom, with new spankee Andrew Shada hauled across Thomas' knee for a hard on-the-spot spanking, before being made to bend over for the strap.
Siblings Andrew and Pandora are constantly playing tricks on each other - but somehow, Pandora always seems to get away with it, while Andrew always gets in trouble! In revenge for her latest prank Andrew sneaks up on his sister while she's on the swing, and douses her in cold water. She swiftly retaliates and makes sure Andrew is soaked head to toe before running and telling on him. The poor boy can't get a word in edgeways as their angry fath*r grabs his ear and hauls him inside for a damn good hiding.
A hard hand spanking over the knee shows Andrew that Thomas is really serious this time. Soon enough the older man has made up his mind that it's going to have to be a strapping. Twenty hard strokes will drive the lesson home. First, he fetches a jug and pours icy cold water over Andrew's tight briefs to make sure his bottom is dripping wet. Because as Thomas' mother knew very well, it does make it sting more.
I think I first encountered the idea of using cold water to increase the intensity of a punishment via Henry Higgins, and Blushes magazine. Here's a photo from 1985 showing a reformatory girl bent over a trestle whose tight shorts were soaked with water before she's given the cane:
There are so many things I love about this: the ritualistic aspect; the deliberate sadism of the disciplinarian in using their imagination to increase the discomfort of the victim; the way the water soaks through the tight fabric and renders it translucent, and catches the light as it pours down the legs.
When I see this photo I imagine the sudden shock of being soaked in cold water, how it would make you shivery and miserable as you awaited your fate, goosepimples springing up on chilly flesh which would then be all the more sensitive during the thrashing that ensued.
For some time now I've wanted to revisit this theme with a male spankee. I came up with a scenario in which the punishment fits the crime, with the poor boy who gets the cold water treatment having earned it by doing the same to his sister. But, because I prefer stories about sympathetic spankees who don't really deserve the horrible things that happen to them, I decided to make this one an unfair punishment, in which the sister has already got her revenge during the water fight that kicks everything off, but only Andrew is unlucky enough to get punished.
We had great fun going out into the garden to shoot the water fight itself, and it quickly became apparent that Andrew was a natural actor with a flair for the dramatic.
I picked out my most innocent, girlish dress - which also happened to be white cotton, to create a bit of a wet t-shirt effect, since I wasn't wearing a bra!
This was Andrew's first ever spanking video as a bottom, and he was very nervous indeed. We took regular breaks to reassure him but the poor lad was rather overwhelmed by the experience. He could barely speak as Tom gave him an in-character telling off, and once over the knee Tom's hard hand made him wince and gasp.
I'd originally intended for Tom's character to be very strict and severe, but Andrew's nerves brought out his kindly side. The paternal figure in this scene ends up coming across as firm but fair, sorry that he has to do this, wanting the best for his boy - and expecting the best of him, too. It's an interesting counterpoint to the theme of Andrew being unfairly punished while his sister gets away with it, but I rather like how it turned out.
Although the spanking is not especially severe, Andrew's genuine fear and nervousness lends an intense emotional atmosphere to the scene, and I think the result is a very realistic-feeling domestic punishment. Plus of course it absolutely begs for a sequel where my character gets her comeuppance!
