Stroppy teenager Richard McLean reckons he’s too old to pull down his trousers for his father’s belt - but parents Kelley May and Stephen Lewis have other ideas.
Stephen and Kelley are concerned for their teenage son Richard: he’s a good kid, but he’s been slipping a little lately and clearly needs a reminder of how he’s supposed to behave. Richard, for his part, isn’t worried at first - after all he’s too old for a spanking, right?
Much to his surprise, his parents don’t agree with his assessment. They’ve decided that a sound strapping with his father’s belt is exactly what he needs, and before he knows it he’s kneeling on the sofa with his trousers around his ankles. His mother gently talks him through his punishment, and by the end he’s sore and subdued and knows it’s time to change his behaviour for the better.
This was an intense one to shoot: it's a particularly taboo expression of the disciplinary dynamic between two parents and their child, and it was part of a very long day's filming including a performer who hadn't worked on a spanking set before. Join the cast and crew backstage as they make sure everyone's looking after themselves properly (grapes are not a balanced meal!), check in with everyone's limits and boundaries, and work together to make the scene the best it can be.
