If you thought there was a frisson of erotic tension in the first part of Maintaining Discipline, then you ain't seen nothing yet. In part two, headmaster Mike Pain instructs new teacher Pandora Blake in the art of severe corporal punishment. First, the Scottish tawse – cruel and stinging. Ms Blake is nervous that it's usually used on the hands, but Mr Pain assures her that in his school it's used on the bare bottom. Not gently, either – he tells her to deliver each stroke as hard as she can, and Pandora's more than happy to rise to the challenge.
Next comes the cane – the headmaster calmly accepts six, and then twelve, hard cracks with the thin cane while Pandora grins gleefully. She's definitely enjoying this lesson. By the time she moves on to the thick cane, Mr Pain's bare bottom is covered in harsh red marks – the cumulative impact of a severe beating. But he isn't flagging, and urges Pandora to continue giving him her hardest strokes. Mr Pain is clearly enjoying this too.
When she's perfected her technique with the canes, Ms Blake is in for her next corporal punishment lesson: how to take it herself. As she bends over the desk and lifts her skirt, revealing stockings and suspenders and a gorgeous unmarked bottom, it's no surprise to realise that she's been looking forward to this. Headmaster Mike Pain gives her a firm hand spanking, followed by a session with the slipper. It seems like a lesson that both colleagues would like to take part in again...
Pandora and Mike chat about everything spanking - starting with how and when Mike first realised he was into corporal punishment, and going onto his current preference for impersonal, clinical punishments, and scenes in which he spanks or is spanked by someone he knows is secretly enjoying it. They delve into one of Mike's hottest fantasies, and Mike tells why he's sometimes called 'phone booth Mike'. A fascinating interview with a life-long kinkster, full of eye-witness details of Mike's childhood in caning-obsessed 1960s South Africa.
