Mike's in trouble. Careless referencing in his latest essay has led to accusations of plagiarism. Rather than fail him, his tutor gives him an option: a hard spanking, witnessed by her teaching assistant.
Mike's procrastination problem has landed him in big trouble. He made the deadline on his latest essay, but he didn't have time to write up all his research in his own words. Suddenly, he's facing accusations of plagiarism.
His tutor Ms Kane and TA Pandora don't want him to fail her class - they know he's capable of good work. But there isn't time to rewrite the paper before the end of term. They give Mike an option: instead of an F, he can accept corporal punishment, until they're sure that Mike understands the seriousness of the issue. Ms Kane will administer the strapping, and Pandora will witness it. Poor Mike is remorseful and humiliated as he takes his punishment under the watchful eyes of both his teachers.
I had a big procrastination problem when I was a student, and when I wrote this storyline I very much put myself into Mike's shoes. In reality, I had to ask my boyfriend Tom to spank me to help me manage my time better; this method would certainly have been more direct!
When I showed Mike the scene idea he said he identified very much with this character as well, and felt like in an alternate universe this might have been him.
He took his punishment beautifully, and Dana delivered both the spanking and the scolding with blazing authority. The hottest thing about this scene for me was the eye contact; holding Mike's gaze as he struggled under the strap. I like the dynamic of having a witness to the punishment, especially a woman watching a man be spanked, and I hope you do too.

Halfway through Michael's first ever spanking shoot, he chats to Pandora about the experience of working with Dana, his interest in age play, the decision to shave on camera and what he thinks of the scenes filmed so far. Mike describes Plagiarism as "uncannily familiar", and tells us how it could have been a scene from his real university life.
At the end of Michael and Dana's first shoot together, Pandora chats to them about how they feel about working for Dreams of Spanking and working with each other. Michael shows off his marked bottom, Dana admires his underpants and they discuss their favourite scene.
