A book makes a surprisingly good spanking implement. I’ve been spanked with books myself, in fact; they’re often at hand, they’re easy to wield, they give a satisfyingly thuddy impact that makes a great warmup beating. Their subjects can add a little something to the headspace, too: it’s amusingly apposite to be beaten with a copy of Crime & Punishment, and it can be extra humiliating if the chosen tome is by an essayist whose opinions you loathe.
In the backstage content released alongside Part I, Sai and Eve talk about how they’ve both been around and alongside books their whole lives. Books have been an important part of their careers; Sai really was a bookshop manager for a good while, and Eve has worked in several others. They’re both avid readers, and the books they collect as a couple mean a lot to them.
It makes sense, then, for them to involve books in their kinky lives in this way - and we’re delighted to have them share that with us. Some of the funniest moments in this film arise from the comments Eve and Sai make about particular choices that get pulled off the shelves to further redden Sai’s shapely bottom. A must-see for fans of switch couples and sexy literature, this scene, like its predecessor, is a beautiful microcosm of a real relationship - funny, sexy, and deeply connected.
It’s a pretty popular trope in spanking stories for the spankee to try and put a brave face on it. There’s a bunch of ways it can play out: an unrepentant schoolboy refusing to be cowed by a strict headmistress; an eager submissive who wants to please their dominant by taking a punishment beautifully; a fierce rival unwilling to give her opponent the satisfaction of seeing her squirm.
This week’s release is a whole new take on that story. The core plot of this film is one we’ve done before - “sales exec spanked by boss for missing deadline” is a fun dynamic, but not a new one to us. In this case though it’s framed as a sort of social media prank; the firm has a popular YouTube channel, and the whole film is actually a video published to their many viewers.
What really makes it hot is the effect that has on Eryn’s responses and behaviour. The YouTube channel is mostly their project - these are their subscribers watching, their fans seeing her humiliated and exposed. They want to make good content and come across as a competent professional, but to do that they needs to keep up the veneer of a fun, cheerful YT prank punishment even as the blows rain down on their soft bare buttocks and thighs.
All told it’s a great twist on a popular story, and genuinely funny to boot - this is one you won’t want to miss.
I reckon the hottest thing about this week’s release - Beating the Competition, starring Pandora Blake, Rebecca Belacqua and Kelley May - is in the tension and contrast between how Kelley is speaking and what’s actually going on in the room.
Because the thing is, she’s perfectly calm. Her tone is rather dry, in fact; she’s delivering a standard training session to one of her employees, making sure they’re up to scratch for an impending promotion. The way she speaks is measured and informative, like this is just another day on the job for her.
Rebecca, on the other hand, is exposed and squirming, deeply humiliated and blushing bright red on both sets of cheeks. She’s gasping and crying out, struggling with impacts both physical and psychological. This is a brand new experience for her, and one she hadn’t imagined would be quite this intense.
There’s something deeply intriguing about that contrast - particularly given that, by the conceit of the plot, Kelley herself must have had this experience too at some point in the past. Her face sometimes betrays her real feelings; her voice is calm, but from the way she’s looking at her compromised employee you can tell she’s enjoying this as much as we are.
Of course, this isn’t the only spanking in the film - and Kelley’s lesson gets an immediate reprise as power rebalances itself once again! After all, it’s only fair that Rebecca gets a chance to put her new skill into action now she’s officially Pandora’s superior.
I think this is probably the most intense spanking I’ve seen here since I’ve been part of the Dreams of Spanking team. Pandora takes Emma through three different increasingly difficult implements before finally finishing off with a heavy cane, all delivered straight onto the bare. Emma takes her punishments almost in silence, only the softest of whimpers betraying how difficult it must be. At the end her skin is bright red and heavily welted, and I’ve no doubt that some of those final strokes will bruise for days or even weeks.
It turns out, though, that Emma Christie - for whom this is a Dreams of Spanking debut, making her endurance all the more impressive! - might be a woman of hidden talent (as well as the talent that’s already on show). There’s a little twist at the end of this scene; one that suggests a sequel is potentially in the works. Is this blisteringly severe spanking going to be followed up with some unexpected blackmail and table-turning?
As always, folks, watch this space for more...
For obvious reasons, a lot of our focus here is on the people who get spanked. Some of the fictional spankees in our films are curious ingénues, ripe for a journey of self-discovery; others are reluctant, recalcitrant bottoms, writhing and unenthusiastic. Plenty more are experienced spanking lovers having the time of their lives, perhaps even manipulating themselves into getting the discipline they crave.
This week, I want to pay a little more attention to the characters on the other side of the paddle. There are just as many ways to play a top as a bottom - some are salacious, lustful, leering; others are reluctant, administering a spanking that does not please them for the good of a bottom that does.
This week’s upper hands, meanwhile, are positively gleeful. Clara clearly gets off on the power trip of taking her underlings in hand, and the delight she takes in humiliating them as well as hurting them is obvious. So once the tables are turned on her (spoiler alert!) she’s shown no mercy - Willow and Pandora expose her for the lightweight she is, reddening her backside and spreading her legs.
If you’re a fan of humiliation and exposure, you’re sure to love this one. And if you’re as impressed as I am by the mastery of an experienced top, this is another great opportunity to see how good Clara’s aim is!
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!
Can we take a moment here to talk about Miss Kelley May?
She’s never filmed for Dreams of Spanking before, but she’s been around in the scene for a while - and it shows. Her Dreams debut is a tour de force, the picture of discipline in a figure-hugging pinstripe dress. She knows exactly how to control her strokes with the heavy wooden paddle, leaving Pandora’s bottom red and stinging with minimal force.
Kelley is curvaceous, stern, scolding and sadistic, and I have immediately developed an enormous crush on her. Frankly she can paddle me any time she likes. (Um. Please?)
Pandora of course shines every bit as brightly as her new co-star in this week’s film. As is so often the case, one of the best things about her performance here is her facial expressions: the sense we have that she’s blasé about her punishment at first and then increasingly concerned as she begins to realise what she’s let herself in for.
In the end, she really is paddled and humiliated to her core - and I reckon she’ll think twice before cutting loose at a work dinner again.
Politics is awfully serious these days, isn’t it. Where once we had the camp, satirical Yes Prime Minister, now we have a neverending chain of Serious Dramas on Netflix filled with objectionably ambitious people who never laugh at themselves - and there’s little enough room for laughter in real life politics at present, either. If you’re mourning the days when there was space for brevity in our tumultuous political landscape, we’ve got the film for you; The Party Whip is a comedy piece in a hallowed British tradition. Nobody laughs at us as well as we laugh at ourselves - and if there’s a good solid flogging involved to boot, well then, more’s to the better!
Or so MP Lana Moon seems to think, anyway. Despite Pandora’s best efforts as Party Whip, the traditional heavy flogging with leather tails doesn’t quite seem to tame her; doubtless she’ll be stepping out of line again just as soon as she can.
And that’s the hottest thing about this scene too, actually - the barely-restrained glee of our Honourable Friends. There’s a lot of hot fantasy to be had in a reluctant spanking, of course, but I love the eagerness Lana has here. “I didn’t realise politics got to nudity quite so fast”, she says, slipping out of her red leather dress. Pandora raises a manicured eyebrow in response. “Well”, she replies, dripping with disapproval. “It wouldn’t if you behaved yourself.”
This wry, joyous approach to punishment is made even clearer in the behind the scenes special we’ve released alongside the main film. Lana and Pandora clearly had a great time shooting this, even when trying to navigate the complexities of shooting porn in a post-COVID landscape.
It would be easy to let the Januaryness of everything get you down at the moment, here in the midst of another national lockdown - so let The Party Whip cheer you up a little. It certainly did the job for me!
I was scrolling back through the archive and realised that no-one had written a blogpost yet about Casino Correction. This seems like a missed opportunity, as this is a fantastic spanking film starring Pandora Blake and Mike Pain, with an original concept that I haven't seen before.
Croupier Pandora Blake has been called in for a meeting with her boss, casino owner Mike Pain. It seems she's been distracted on the job, messing up the sums and costing the casino money. The scene begins with the lovely Ms Blake pleading with Mr Pain to keep her job. When that doesn’t work she tries bargaining - it turns out she has an ace in her hand, and her friend in the IT department has told her that Mike likes to look at spanking sites on his office computer.
At this point it almost seems like she is in control, embarrassing Mike by revealing she knows his proclivity for watching spanking porn. She gets him to agree that she can keep her job in exchange for him giving her a spanking as punishment for all the things she messed up. That’s when everything switches, the power dynamic changes - and when Mike spins the roulette wheel Pandora realises it’s not going to be as easy as she thought.
There is something in the way Pandora is willing to say anything to keep her job, and the way Mike pauses before deciding he can definitely take advantage of her desperation. It's a delicious sense that he has been hoping someone, at some point, will ask him to punish them. A feeling that is reinforced by the fact that he keeps a paddle and belt in his office drawer.
I loved seeing Ms Blake laid over Mike’s lap, and squirming each time his palm hits her bottom. Her almost petulant “that really hurts!” was just perfect. Mr Pain is now in full control, and making sure she’ll remember her punishment clearly. When he brings out the leather paddle there is a moment when the camera focusses on Pandora’s wide-eyed look of shock which I particularly liked.
Things get even more fun when Mike lifts her skirt, and we are treated to the sight of the reddening cheeks of her bottom. The marks are lovely, and you can clearly see the edges were the paddle has hit. When he moves on to using a belt, I really enjoyed how clearly you could see each stripe where the belt landed.
As the behind the scenes video makes clear, Pandora is no stranger to the belt and really enjoys receiving it. I loved finding out exactly what it is that Mike does to make Pandora go "Yummy yummy yummy"! It was also fun to watch Nimue and Mike figure out how to best film the roulette wheel and watch a bit of footage that didn't make the cut in the final scene.
Spanking films where at least one of the characters are meant to be genuinely into spanking can sometimes end up feeling a bit camp or awkward - it's a bit of an odd dynamic, more complicated to bring to life than a more traditional straight-laced dynamic where it's purely about punishment. I know from watching Mike's intereview that he has a fetish for scenes where elaborate punishments are decided by characters who have a secret interest in spanking. Growing up kinky in South Africa, where corporal punishment was still used, his experiences shaped his interest in punishment as an outlet for private sexuality - but in situations where no-one would ever dare to admit it. There's a tension there, and I can really see the appeal.
The best bit of this scene though is the way Mike turns the tables on Pandora with the roulette wheel. The idea of a punishment where fate will decide how many strokes is seriously hot. There's no chance to bargain or wheedle out of it now - the wheel doesn't care how much it's going to hurt.
Behind the scenes during the filming of Donna Draper's Secretary. Out-takes and out-of-character chatter as Pandora, Vix and Nimue discuss the perils of being over-ambitious, plan their Mad Men dialogue and negotiate the caning. Vix demonstrates her skill at remembering her mark, and shows off her famous poise (not including getting over excited while bending over in heels and nearly falling on her arse)!
The nearly-falling-over is definitely my favourite bit of this - not only because of the hilarious way Vix sways back and forth without moving her feet, but because the reason she lost her balance in the first place was that she was cracking up and slapping her thigh with delight, cackling "I love my life". I can't think why; all Nimue had said was that we could see her cane stripes through her sheer knickers. Perfectly normal observation if you ask me!
