A martial arts student chooses to undergo a final inurement practice before embarking on a journey. Enduring a full force 50 stroke cold caning, she discovers that pain is not an enemy to be feared. 

Kaelah approached me with the desire to create a severe caning film with her partner Ludwig. After watching Ludwig top in movies of this severity for Eastern European producers, Kaelah was deeply curious about the experience. She decided to confront her fears and undergo such a caning herself, so that she could have an informed opinion about what it was like for the performers she had seen in other films.

Previously, this couple had shot a homemade film of Kaelah taking a severe 50 stroke caning, but Kaelah was not entirely satisfied with the results. She wanted to revisit the idea with a professional producer, to create a film she could be truly proud of. Together they conceived the idea of a martial arts student ready to progress to the next level of her training, about to go on a life-changing journey to study with new, stricter teachers. She chooses to participate in a final inurement practice to prove to herself and others that she had the strength of character to endure such rigorous training, and all the physical discomforts it entailed. This test is not mandatory; rather she volunteers to undertake it, for her own reasons.

Kaelah and I both love the concept of severe corporal punishment undertaken consensually, with honour and self-discipline.  As an experienced tai chi practitioner she was able to bring her physical skill and grace to the screen with a breathtaking performance that underpins her courage and self-control during the caning itself.

A powerfully performer-driven film, the most severe to be published on this site to date. Fifty full force cane strokes delivered straight from cold are not for the fainthearted. But as you will see, Kaelah is anything but.

Kaelah wrote, "I have seldom been as happy with a scene as I was and am with this one." You can read more about Kaelah's decision to embark upon this journey in her own words, in her blog posts Healthy Severity, The Final Test: Preparations and The Final Test: Shoot Report.

The Final Test - Behind the Scenes

In the second half of our behind the scenes documentary for The Final Test, Kaelah and Ludwig talk about their feelings immediately before filming commences, and we share intimate out-takes and behind the scenes footage from the severe caning sequence itself. Kaelah controls the pace of the scene and takes the pauses she needs, and even laughs and jokes between shots. Afterwards, Kaelah and Ludwig give a final interview describing their immediate reactions to the scene. Ends with out-takes from Kaelah’s solo tai chi katas, and a closer look at the sword form..

  1. What an intense scene. I especially liked the editing job in the final minutes where we can see Kaelah doing her sword routine both inside her dojo and outside.
    (Have done martial arts for years myself, makes we want to start again…maybe when I’m old and have more time…)

    BTW: Kaelahs and Ludwigs blog post about this is actually what made me find this great spanking site.

  2. Thanks! It was a pleasure to edit this film. I’m so impressed with both of them right now, but especially Kaelah ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Thanks very much. I really enjoyed editing the martial arts music video sequences. The intro sequence was actually cut together from two takes as well – the whole film was shot with a single camera. She’s very very good, isn’t she? So much pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m glad you followed the links and like the site! Thanks for commenting, always good to hear from new people.

  4. Thank you for a wonderful experience and for the great edited version of the clip, Pandora! The music is also wonderful and enhances the scene. And the behind-the-scenes reports that you have put together are fantastic. I hope that the viewers enjoy getting some more background information about the scene and the shoot. I’m very happy that the feedback has been so positive so far and I’m glad that derwolf even found his way to Dreams of Spanking from our blog! He doesn’t even seem to be the only reader of our blog who wants to watch the whole clip after having read the posts and seen the pictures and preview clip. Cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Well done and thank you, Pandora. I am very happy with the final result.

    When Kaelah, who watched the film first, told me about the caning scene being interspersed with tai chi sequences, I did not expect to like it. But after watching the film, I agree that it was the right creative decision – it works well for me, and I think it was the better solution than just having one long uninterrupted caning sandwiched between two tai chi sequences. The music fits nicely as well, the editing is good… Well done all across the board.

    I like the behind-the-scenes footage as well. As a viewer, I often find BTS footage as interesting as the spanking films themselves. Hopefully, we have managed to offer some interesting insights for those members of yours who feel the same way.

  6. I’m so pleased that you’re happy with the result. This is your film more than it’s mine, creatively speaking, and I really wanted to do your vision justice. I’m glad I waited a while to hone my editing skills before attempting the edit!

    It was a pleasure to work with you, and spending a week watching video of you made me miss you like crazy. Hopefully we’ll be able to meet up in 2013!

  7. The behind the scenes footage was more complex to edit than I’d expected. I ended up taking out most of my own chatter during the interviews, as well as most of the questions I asked you, so as to reduce the total length (and because really these videos are about your story, not my own opinions!). I’m pretty happy with the results, though. And I couldn’t resist the temptation to include some of the unused tai chi footage, as well as the warm up and out-takes.

    I’m looking forward to releasing this one on DVD!

  8. Whee! Do let me know if there are any particular types of scene that would entice you back sooner ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. As reader of “Rohrstockpalast” it was a “must” to download this scene. I think it takes a lot of courage to enter the professional ranks going off the deep end; the scenes Kaelah and Ludwig did before on Dreams of Spanking had been fun. Now both of them might be hooked for keeps.
    Congratulations Pandora, you might have a new star :-).

  10. Let’s see…canes, uniforms, canes&uniforms, uniforms&canes, f/f or f/m. ๐Ÿ™‚
    And as for the video formats: how about providing the low-res version also in mp4? Any PC can handle mp4 with VLC player, but wmv’s on iPad don’t work. (and the large super-hires mp4 also don’t work on older iPads, whereas 1280 x 720 normal HD mp4 is no problem)

  11. Aha! That’s delightfully specific. Thankyou ๐Ÿ™‚ I need to expand my uniform collection…I have WPC and nurse at present but haven’t filmed in them yet ๐Ÿ™‚

    When the site launched I provided four download options: high res mp4, low res mp4, high res wmv and low res wmv. But I simply didn’t have the disc space to maintain it longterm. MP4 is my preferred format but I suspect a lot of people would complain if I didn’t offer a wmv version. It’s one of those situations where it’s tricky to please everyone.

  12. O.k. lets get more specific ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Maids, policewomen and equestriennes are always great ๐Ÿ™‚
    And from the most viewed scenes and tags (scene: caned in jodhpurs, tags: f/m , f/f and cane) it seems these are “hot” topics anyway.
    Of course the diversity, the behind the scenes looks and storylines are what makes this site stand out. I think no one needs another clone of e.g. “The Montrose Academy”.

  13. Yes. Mean old nun, more cruel looking than Jessica Lange in “Asylum”, gives you 100 barebutt lashes with a wet strap.

  14. I certainly agree that a lot of courage was invested in this scene, both in terms of the CP and the professional exposure. I’d love to work with Kaelah and Ludwig again any time the opportunity presents ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Thankyou! Really glad the behind the scenes videos, diversity and storylines appeal – those are all things I care about passionately. Making a mental note for more equestrian, maidservant and policewoman scenes ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Still seeking an ideal “mean old nun” casting. Experienced candidates fluent in English are welcome to apply ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Thank you Ludwig and Kaehla for the stinging, juicy caning! Do it again! Wunderbar.
    (But the taichi pauses in the caning was not a very good idea! Nice to see some of it at the beginning of the film. But when it interrupts what we are here to see, no…..)

  18. Absolutely fantastic clip! I really love it, the positions, the room, the atmophere, the body reaction of pain, the sexy white bottom, the sound, wow. And the actors very very good! Kaelah is very sexy, and I like the way she accept and endure the punishment.
    I love when she get down the sweatpants, she seems feel it humiliating, but I think Ludwig had to repeat one or two strokes, because one or two strokes seems strike the pants and not the nude bottom

  19. Thankyou! Glad you enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure about the tai chi meditations during the caning but all other comments have been positive, so I think in the end you’re outvoted there… for now at least ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. Thankyou very much. I agree that the acting was amazing, especially from Kaelah. Impressive given she hadn’t previously had much screen experience and was working in a second language. I love the radiance and trust in her face going into the caning and afterwards.

    She was a bit embarrassed about showing her nude bottom – there’s a conversation about it in the behind the scenes video. It definitely adds a little piquancy.

    (Don’t mention those low strokes to Ludwig! He was a little sore about it afterwards…)

  21. In general, I already gave up to finding a webpage like this – other webpages just have the “cold” action without any environment. This site is different, definitely. Thank you and keep it up!

    Indeed, like mentioned in the blog, this is a severe action. Please only do such a shoot again if there is a “communication” between the actors! If so, I would love to see something similar again.

    There is one picture from hours after the shooting – is it possible to receive more pictures or even a small video with all details? Or is this too embarrassing for Kaelah (would understand if)? Just as a hint for future productions.

  22. I’m happy that you enjoyed the clip so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I pulled down my pants, there was no place for any kind of embarrassment, though. I was fully focussed on getting everything right for the camera and on the severe caning lying ahead of me. I am generally not easily embarrassed about nudity. I think this is quite obvious in the behind-the-scenes clip where I’m running around with my pants still down half of the time. In my opinion, an embarrassed reaction wouldn’t really have fit to my character, either, who undergoes the test voluntarily and at her own initiative.

    What you might have noticed and what Pandora might be referring to, though, is the fact that I am very conscious about how my bottom looks on camera (after all, it is the main focus or at least one of the main focusses in a spanking video!) and I try to make sure to find the best-looking posture. Furthermore, I love rituals and bending over and pulling down the trousers is an important part of the spanking ritual for me, so I try to do that slowly and consciously.

    Oh, and don’t worry about the slightly low strokes, they didn’t only hit the (thin) fabric of my pants, but also the crease between my bottom and the thighs รƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ‚ฌล“ which made them not less, but more challenging than the rest!

  23. Oops, yes, that is what I was referring to – sorry to put words in your mouth, lovely. Thanks for this comment ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Thankyou, I’m so glad you liked it! I fully believe that the best videos arise when there is a real connection between the actors, and if possible I love shooting real life lovers and play partners.

    The best place to read after the shoot reports and find photos of the bruising is on the model’s blogs – in this case Kaelah, who has written some detailed reports linked to in the description. Sadly I wasn’t able to film her after the shoot as the day afterwards, she and Ludwig left to continue their travels. Definitely an idea for if (when) I do a severe scene like this for this site though…

  25. I think this is the best movie I have seen of this genre. Consensual rather than punishment is really great.
    Your performance was nothing short of perfect. Not the usual fake sounds when being caned, but honest reactions.
    Gold medal, and Please, Please shoot more films together

  26. Only one or two were to repeat…..I think.
    I think your bottom looks very very nice, lovely round white sexy bottom! Yeah, in that positions seems more big, but this it sadistcally could be better for the spanker and for us in watching it! So as well your white skin(as Pandora, so white and sexy too) it seems your bottom more vulnerable, and that severe bruises and marks confirm your sensitive skin: wow, very severe marks, I love it, I hope that go away soon.
    I will really love a more severe session, I will love a 100 strokes caning clip! I know, It is only a dream, a dream of spanking

  27. Mistress Beth earn her living as a spanker, it’s what she does. Her home/studio is somewhere near the Scottish border.
    Mrs Ellis ‘canes’ some schoolgirls in a mini-video, but she may need some instruction. But anyone can use a strap.
    – The best would be to check with a UK domina guide.

  28. lol. Yes, I am quite used to being outvoted ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice to be allowed to throw in an opinion, anyway. (Maybe a good ‘bonus’ one day would be to edit the shoot with all strokes seen in the camera that shows her butt directly from the rear. Something like “footage never before shown”….)

  29. “Kaelah is very sexy, and I like the way she accept and endure the punishment.” – I can sign that one! Her butt is one of the very good ones on the net. And she is so cute with her natural look – good at looking naked, stripped and vulnerbale in her submission.

  30. Generally Frants I prefer to work with people I already know and trust. I don’t think I’d like to hire someone blind, especially not a top, unless I suppose they come personally recommended by people who have played with them. Still, I am keeping an eye out among my circle of extended acquaintances!

  31. There was only a single camera, so the footage shown in the video is all there is! If lots of people would like a bonus video of just the caning footage without any interruptions, I’d definitely consider putting it together, but it will take time to do so only worth it if there’s considerable demand.

  32. Thankyou! I have received some complaints that the “punishment” wasn’t “strict” enough which I think was missing the point entirely. I do like punishment fantasies as well but there is a real shortage of SEVERE consensual videos… and the more severe, the more of a difference explicit consent makes I think.

    I agree that Kaelah’s restrained, honest reactions are extremely sexy!

  33. I totally agree – she is absolutely beautiful in this. Her bottom is gorgeous, very shapely, and I love the expressions on her face as she’s talking to her teacher. She is a very pretty lady!

  34. Glad you enjoyed the looks of my bottom and the marks so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know that there are 100 strokes canings, but you will rarely find them for several reasons. The most important one is the healing time. The marks from this 50 strokes caning already took months to go away completely (about two weeks for the most visible marks, a few months until the remainders were completely gone). Then there are personal limits regarding the amount of damage which is okay for a spankee. For me, 50 strokes is the absolute maximum (at least when it comes to that level of severity). And finally, more strokes just prolong the scene but don’t really add anything new, neither to the scene itself nor to the experience of the spankee. I guess that’s another reason why they are done so rarely.

    But I can of course understand that a longer scene and even more marks can be appealing, depending on one’s personal fantasies. As I said, you will find some clips of that kind, but not many, due to the reasons I’ve mentioned above.

  35. Glad you enjoyed the scene and the marks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    As Pandora already said, there isn’t any video which shows the marks on the next day. The picture is one Ludwig and I took in private for our readers and for the viewers who are interested in how the marks look like the other day. Our very first private 50 strokes caning which Ludwig and I also captured on video, though, was embedded into a documentary which includes an interview on the day after the caning during which we also show the marks. The video will be released on our blog for free some time this year.

  36. Wow, thank you very much for your very kind compliments! I’m happy that you like the clip so much. ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. Ouch!! I did not know that it is necessary so many time for marks to go away! So we have to wait so many time to watch you for a new severe caning scene.
    Your 50 is very hard, Ludwig caned you very severly and your white skin seems very sensitive (I don’t know if it is the right word) so you are in right about marks, in your case it is not necessary too many strokes, with that 50 your bottom looks already very bruised, very sexy and spectacular. Infact I would love, in your clip, if your master adiminister you an humiliating cornertime on knees, with nude bottom, so we would dream watching your nude marked bottom for some minutes, delighting that magnificent marks on your round perfect bottom. But I understand that would be humiliating and out of place in your scenario with Ludwig.
    I read that you have already made a 50 caning strokes years ago, where I can buy it?

  38. I also connected on a deeply personal level, with the martial arts theme of this video. As a lifelong martial arts enthusiast; who started off learning Wushu as a 2-3 year old boy, before proceeding during my teenage years to learn Shotokan Karate, seeing Kaelah practising Tai’ Chi with such elegance and grace was most entrancing. I thank you all; i.e. Kaelah, Ludwig, and Pandora Blake (my ancient Egyptian Princess; reborn as an exquisite English Rose), for marrying two of my greatest loves (i.e. the oriental martial arts and hard bare-butt spankings) together in the same movie. Mwaahh!

  39. I love it as is, but having a compnion version with an uninterrupted caning scene to compare with the original, won’t be a bad idea! ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Emotionally! Watch the behind the scenes video to see. He is such a perfectionist ๐Ÿ˜‰

  41. Okay, thanks for letting me know! I’ll see if I can find the time ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed both, the martial arts scenario and the caning itself! Thank you very much for your kind comment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Great to see a full-blooded 50-stroke caning, especially of a girl as beautiful as Kaelah! My respects and admiration for a girl who can take such severe punishment and still come up smiling.

    Ss x

  44. Given the severity of the caning, this is a deeply impressive performance from Kaelah. I have not seen anyone sustain such a lengthy ordeal with such calmness and evident self control; it makes the scene compelling viewing. She is to be congratulated and admired. However, although the martial arts theme is an excellent hook for the action, I disagree about the decision to edit the exterior sequences into the middle of the main action; for me it shatters the intensity. I do hope the material could be re-edited to allow us to see a straight through version of the main action.

  45. Simply great! a first-class body control that perfectly shows the exercises of the sport and also shows the mental attitude.
