Behind the scenes during the filming of Teaching Experience, including Amelia's gratitude about being "paid to talk", Caroline removing her clothing tag with her teeth, Pandora's tea addiction getting the better of her, blocking (complete with exaggerated spanking actions!) and planning dialogue. Plus unused footage: "We are the scary, teacherly queens of discipline!"
Catching up on our behind the scenes updates, the out-takes video for Teaching Experience is now online. This is a shorter behind the scenes video, but packed full of entertaining moments - from Amelia's glee at being "paid to talk" to (my favourite) Caroline bending over to remove Amelia's clothing tag with her teeth.
Caroline Grey and Amelia Jane Rutherford are two of our most popular performers, and deservedly so - both experienced actors with stage and screen experience, genuine lifestyle spanking enthusiasts and lovely, lovely people. This candid "making of" video gives you the chance to get to know them - and Amelia's husband Hywel Phillips, behind the camera - a little better.
How hard is too hard when you're slippering a student? And what happens if the first, over-the-uniform spanking you dish out isn't enough? Amelia Jane Rutherford is interestingly tentative as she explores this key part of her new teaching role.
Seeking advice from her more experienced friend Caroline Grey, she shyly confesses that she's unsure about one element of her new job: the discipline regime. She's never administered corporal punishment before, and wants to make sure that when she uses the slipper on one of her students, it has the intended effect. Not too hard, not too gentle - exactly how painful is a slippering supposed to be?
There's a really natural rapport between Caroline and Amelia, which you'll know if you've seen them work together before - whether it's as excited friends hiring a hot male stripper, or defiant young ladies punished by their governess.
In 'Teaching Experience' they discuss corporal punishment like old friends, with nervous giggles and shy smiles. Asking for advice, Amelia edges ever so gently towards what we all hope is coming: a request that Caroline use the slipper on her so she can experience the sensation first-hand.
I've been trying to put my finger on what makes this scene so special, and I think it all comes down to the stream of consciousness from Amelia while she processes the experience of a slippering. From her initial comment that “it stings, doesn't it?” to, later, “Gosh, okay - that really does hurt quite a lot more,” she assesses the punishment in the same way as a teacher would grade your answers on a test paper.
The punishment gradually builds, from initial whacks over the skirt to a painful bare bottom spanking, but at each escalation there's a nervousness and embarrassment – from both Caroline and Amelia – that gives the scene an added tension. Amelia's clearly intent on getting the full experience, for the sake of her own integrity as well as her natural curiosity. She is the one that drives the scene, asking for extra at each stage until eventually she's lifting her skirt, pulling her own knickers down and explaining 'I know this is weird, but...'
It's an unusual combination of reluctance and determination: reluctance because the situation is humiliating, and you feel that neither woman wants to appear overly keen given that this is, after all, only happening in the name of professionalism. But determination because they both want to show how professional they are: Amelia genuinely wants to discover what it feels like so she can learn how to administer corporal punishment effectively, which will be a valuable skill in her new job; and I get the impression that Caroline is keen to share her skills with the slipper, and teach her old friend new tricks.
A while ago Pandora sent me the latest Dreams of Spanking film with the caveat that 'our sympathies here are definitely with the spankee!' The idea being that - as I think is the norm in Pandora's work - the story is told from the spankee's perspective, and in Christy's case we feel bad for her ... despite being deeply aroused by her red bottom and plaintive squeals of pain.
In 'Intervention', I don't think I'm going out on a limb here to say that the case is the exact opposite. This painful hairbrush spanking is very much deserved.
Amelia Jane Rutherford puts her acting skills to good use in this film, playing the most obnoxious, conniving work colleague that anyone has had the misfortune to work with. She oozes fake sympathy with her underpaid colleagues (played by Pandora Blake and Caroline Grey), dripping saccharine sweetness and patronising words even as she boasts about her own recent payrise.
She insists on showing them how she's planning to remodel her bathroom, using money they all know she's been stealing from the company - putting expenses claims in for erotic lingerie is just one of many ways she's been doing the dirty. While showing off her unearned success, she oozes mock sympathy that her colleagues haven't fared as well:
“We can't all have payrises now, can we Pandora?”
While Amelia's out of the room, her justifiably pissed-off colleagues Pandora and Caroline discuss their strategy. They've clearly planned a punishment for Amelia that will make her think about her bad behaviour, encourage her to stop usurping her coworkers and – because this is a Dreams of Spanking film – give her a bottom so red she won't be able to sit down for a week, let alone sit at the right hand of the boss she's been sucking up to.
Amelia is an out-and-out baddie in this film, and so it's delightful to see her get her comeuppance. Watching her be spanked with not one, but two horrid wooden hairbrushes art once is incredibly hot – Caroline and Pandora take it in turns to whack her, pulling her skirt up to reveal the stockings and sexy lingerie she spent company money on, and administering a no-nonsense double wooden hairbrush spanking until she squeals in pain.
The punishment itself is beautiful, but it's made even more delicious by the fact that it's so well deserved. If anyone ever deserved a humiliating hairbrush spanking, it's Amelia's character in 'Intervention.' When you watch you'll see exactly what I mean, I promise.
I'm still only just recovering from a fantastic shoot last week with new performers Alexander Knight and Richard Barton and others. The venue was stunningly beautiful, and things went incredibly smoothly. Over two long days it was hard work, but great fun too, and the quality of the performances from everyone was simply outstanding. I'll be processing some preview photos this week, and look forward to sharing them with you.
Meanwhile here's a fresh, funny spanking film that went up a couple of weeks ago. I'll always love the classic, traditional English punishment scenarios but I think variety is important, and there'll always be space on Dreams of Spanking for quirky, modern scenarios as well. As well as a storyline that's a little bit different, Corporal Punishment innovates by starring a hot young male switch who's as gorgeous as his female co-performers.
Will Savage works as a male stripper in real life, and this storyline gave him the opportunity to bust out some of his moves. His sexy striptease routine is playful and naughty, and shows off his toned body to perfection.
The shoot was hilarious - as you can see in the behind the scenes video, Will felt a bit self-conscious performing his routine without music (which I added later) but he carried on like a true professional, and the results are fantastic - despite a certain amount of giggling!
On a girls night in Caroline and Amelia hire a spanking strippergram, a hunk in uniform called "Corporal Punishment" whose photo shows off his lovely muscular arms. When he arrives, Amelia is stunned to discover that it's her new boyfriend Will. He hadn't told her he was a stripper - and neither of them knew the other liked spanking!
Amelia insists that Caroline firmly punish him for keeping secrets from her. And since they've already paid, he might as well do his sexy striptease routine. After that the girls can't resist the temptation to go over his knee and try out the spanking capacity of those strong-looking arms!
The scene wraps up with a vision of long legs and tight denim as Will takes both giggling girls over his knee for a double spanking. Even left-handed, that boy has one hell of a hard hand spank - as Caroline and Amelia discovered!
As a producer I'm all in favour of switch visibility, particularly showing switch dynamics between men and women. I wanted to release something around Valentine's Day which was a little bit different, and showed that male submission and switch dynamics can be just as sexy as the predictable male dominance and female submission of classic kinky romance. So far our male/female switch scenes have all been light-hearted and modern, but if you have any ideas for more traditional or historical scenarios that include a switch, please do send them in.
Here are some of my favourite behind the scenes moments from the filming of Corporal Punishment:
I strongly believe that there's a need for more female gaze porn portraying the male body as an object of female desire. Not enough studios, even those ostensibly catering to women, provide a gender balanced gaze and show the men in the same light as the women. As a woman who is attracted to men, I can tell you that when I look at porn, I want the men to be beautiful and sexy, and I want the camera to linger over their physique, and show me their facial expression, the look in their eyes. I don't want to see faceless men or disembodied bums and cocks. I want men I can drool over: strong arms that make me shiver in anticipation, backs I can imagine caressing, jaws I can imagine kissing.
This is all the more important when it comes to submissive men, who are often misrepresented as the least sexy of kinky people. The reality couldn't be further from the truth - and no-one is better suited to demonstrating this fact than the drop dead gorgeous Will Savage.
The Baroness is expanding her household, and her girls are brought in to help initiate the new houseboy. The ladies inspect his physique and his capacity to take punishment without complaint. Amelia uses her skill with rope to bind Will in a flattering tie that accentuates his toned buttocks, and Caroline and the Baroness both take a turn spanking him with hand and leather strap to see how he reacts.
It seems that the new boy meets the Baroness' high standards, as finally she instructs Amelia to tie him to the coffee table as a decorative ornament, with his reddened bottom on display for all the house to see.
Ahhh, I love my work.
I was delighted when this scene was picked up by the female gaze porn blog Birds Eye View, which aims "to create a space that prioritises erotic female spectatorship, male objectification and female sexual pleasure" - exactly what I am trying to do with the male spankee material on Dreams of Spanking. I hadn't heard the phrase "female spectatorship" before, but this CFNM scene has it in spades.
When I was coming up with scenes for this shoot, I'd been obsessed with the idea of bottom bondage for months. I couldn't get out of my head the image of rope separating and sliding between my cheeks, perhaps a cunningly hidden knot pressing against my most secret place. I loved the thought of bottom bondage that looked like breast bondage, rope tightening around each buttock, compressing them until they swell and throb, and making them all the more sensitive to the attentions of a paddle or cane. Sadly, the latter is not physically possible - our gluteal muscles are attached to the body in a fundamentally different way to breasts, and there is nothing for the rope to tighten behind. But when I described my idea of combining bottom bondage and spanking to Amelia, she designed a beautiful, sexy tie that enclosed Will's toned buttocks, accentuating them and making them seem all the more vulnerable.
None of Amelia's rope experience had prepared her for the newness of tying a male body (there's that gender imbalance again!) but she confronted the challenge face-on... as it were. I will never forget the matter-of-fact way she knelt down in front of Will and said, "Right then: what are we going to do about your cock?"
Check out the full scene page for more hilarious behind the scenes moments - and even, in the members photogallery, some full frontal shots of the cock in question, bondage and all!
The scene ends with the lovely Caroline Grey taking a hand in the new houseboy's initiation, before the very well-spanked Will is securely tied over the coffee-table, as decoration for the Baroness' house. If the three of us look rather pleased with ourselves as we admire our new ornament, that's because we were enjoying the view immensely. Human furniture - and female spectatorship - at its finest.
Caroline's brother bets everything on her next race, hoping his winnings will cover his other gambling debts. Caroline knows Amelia is the best racer at Miss Blake’s Riding Academy, but kind-hearted Amelia agrees to let Caroline win this one. They fool the race officials, but they can’t fool Miss Blake.
When Miss Blake confronts the girls, they confess all. She agrees not to expel them, but they still must be punished. The crying girls hold each other’s hands, tearfully comforting each other as they each receive a harsh whipping from Miss Blake's riding crop.
This was such a hot scene. Amelia and Caroline both became deeply immersed in character as the good girls who hadn’t meant to get each other in trouble. Their emotional reactions lent a real intensity to the punishment as they tried to protect each other, held hands and counted each other’s strokes. The girl getting whipped tried her utmost to be brave, but both times the one watching cried real tears as they empathised with the suffering of their friend.
These ladies are both amazing actresses. I almost couldn’t bring myself to thrash them ... almost.
The emotional intensity of this scene appealed to all of us on set, and we were on a collective high when we finished filming. Caroline and Amelia both cited this as their favourite scene of the two-day shoot.
Amelia's husband Hywel captured the beauty and drama of their whippings in a series of truly gorgeous photographs. I love Hywel's work; it's always a pleasure to shoot with him. There are so many lovely images from this 100-photo gallery that I found it hard to pick my favourites. But this post shows you a few of them. I think that the genuine tears in Amelia's eyes as she watches Caroline's punishment, and the beautifully vivid welts decorating pale-skinned Caroline's bottom make for some stunning - and timeless - spanking photography.
I'm a bit behind on blogging our latest scenes, so there might be a flurry of posts over the next few days while I get caught up. It's been a busy month, what with attending Molly Malone's amazing wedding; shooting with her, Zoe Montana and new male spankee Vincent Brennan; doing a tonne of 121 dom sessions; and enjoying some pleasantly filthy activities with my darling D, and, pleasingly, with Tom as well, who has taken time out of his busy summer to come and pay me a couple of booty calls lately. (A term which seems even more appropriate when it's just as much for spanking as it is for sex.)
I want to post previews from both this summer's shoots - things have just been so hectic I've not had time to finish processing the pictures. Ideally, I'd love to get caught up this week, as on Sunday Tom and I are going away for with Nimue Allen to shoot for Dreams of Spanking and Nimue's World for a whole seven days. It's an exciting milestone for this site, our biggest shoot yet, and we'll be adding four new performers to the Dreams of Spanking cast. I'm hugely excited and will share more details soon :)
When Baroness Blake hires a new housegirl, she is looking for obedience, grace, elegance, and a willingness to serve. Two applicants compete to meet her exacting standards: blonde Amelia, keen to show off her poise and perfect submission; and redhaired Caroline, a strong-willed and sarcastic New York City girl.
The Baroness doesn't only want attractive serving girls, but willing companions who can help keep her guests entertained. She tests their modesty, their mettle and their ability to give and receive corporal punishment with a smile. Do either of them have what it takes to join her household?
Photographer Hywel Phillips, Amelia's real-life husband, lent his skill to this shoot and captured a whopping 134 photographs, each and every one stunning in high resolution. Amelia and Caroline, a perfectly complementary pair, are shown off to best advantage, whether in elegant evening gowns or bare skin.
And as a hard-wired spanko, Hywel knows which moments in a punishment sequence are the important ones.
With a running time of over twenty minutes, the accompanying long-play video has already proved popular. If you like satin ballgowns, service, nude submissives, rivalry and watching me administer the tawse, you'll love this classy F/F punishment drama.
Our latest film is based on a scene from "Kinky" by Justine Elyot. I reviewed this erotic novella in January and enjoyed it very much, particularly the first spanking scene where the two main characters blag their way into the fetish club, and are challenged to prove that they are legitimate pervs and not tourists. It's an unusual premise for a first-time scene, and succeeds in being sweet, funny and hot all at once. I thought it would make an awesome spanking film.
Luckily, this is the age of the internet, and after Justine Elyot replied to my review on twitter, I asked her if she'd mind if we used her idea. She was kind enough to grant permission, and so we went ahead and filmed our version of 'Kinky during our shoot with Will, Caroline and Amelia in February.
Will and Caroline walk past a mysterious building on their way to work, which often has people dressed in strange costumes coming in and out of it, carrying oddly shaped bags. They've always wondered what was inside, and one day adventurous Will decides to find out. He tells Caroline to meet him there in ten minutes, and together they manage to blag their way into Club Kinky.
However, there's a catch. Club owner Amelia is friendly and welcoming enough, but to ensure they're legit she asks some questions about "their dynamic". Will and Caroline's vague replies aren't enough to reassure her, and so she requests that they show her how they play. Suddenly the pair realise they are in way over their heads, but to save face, they decide to follow it through. They are suddenly forced to negotiate a kinky scene on the spot and play it out - for real - for the first time ever, in front of a very experienced total stranger. No pressure then!
The more confident Will finds himself taking the lead, but how much does Caroline actually want to do this? When it comes to the world of kink, can you really fake it 'til you make it?
We had a lot of fun shooting this one, as you can probably tell from these behind the scenes screengrabs:
I love Will's "cracking up" face in number 2.
The cast all gave superb performances in this. Ms Elyot herself seems pretty happy with the results, too! Will and Caroline really captured the sensitivity and intimacy of a couple trying kink for the first time, and I love their spontaneous negotiation and communication in this. The ever-delightful Amelia turns out some of the best comedy moments in the entire thing, and her kinky club owner is both amusingly stereotypical and sympathetic.
The result is an entertaining, affectionate and very hot spanking scene, showing how in the process of pretending, two curious newbies discover they might be kinky for real.
'Kinky' is available to buy as an e-book for only 99p. If you enjoy this scene, I can highly recommend it.
Tom here, standing in for Pandora as she makes preparations for her US trip next week. Our latest film is a very exciting historical drama starring two of the most talented and beautiful actresses in the British spanking scene, Caroline Grey and Amelia Jane Rutherford. The scene page includes a gallery of 107 high quality, visually stunning photos by Amelia's real life husband, renowned fetish photographer Hywel Phillips.
This twenty minute film features strict scolding, authentic vintage bloomers and petticoats, plenty of flouncing and pouting, and firmly administered over the knee spankings.
Sneaking out to a dance in town, spirited young ladies Caroline and Amelia are caught by Amelia's stuffy governess. She hauls them both upstairs and shows Caroline what happens to young ladies in this house when they misbehave. Miss Blake takes each girl over her knee and gives her a firm, no-nonsense spanking with her hand and leather paddle.
I've very much enjoyed watching Pandora's professional topping style evolve and develop over the past year or so, and this piece gave her more opportunity to exercise her dominant voice than most. I always find improvised scolding the hardest thing about topping on camera, and so I notice it when done well by others. Pandora presents a well-controlled performance, poised and strict without being overly harsh.
Those who've been following our progress over the years will know that we do like our historical dramas at Dreams of Spanking. Twisted history has long been a favourite source of fantasies for many people. It also offers wonderful costume opportunities; impressively, Caroline and Amelia both created the vintage outfits they wear in this film themselves.
Many of us, if pressed, would admit that we do what we do in part out of a love of playing dress-up (when we're not building sofa-forts). Ladies in bloomers are always a beautiful sight, and both Amelia and Caroline look stunning with their perfect, peachy bottoms rising out of parted white cotton and frothing petticoats.
That day the team also filmed a sequel in which the young ladies are joined by a dashing young footman, played by our newest star Will, who joins them in getting into trouble with the strict governess.
The Edwardian Governess is a must-see film for anyone who shares our tastes for firm-but-fair discipline and the stylings of a by-gone age.
As someone who likes looking at naked men, it sometimes feels as if the world of rope bondage photography thinks that only women ever get tied up. I've enjoyed watching men submit to bondage in real life, and I've always wanted to see more of it in porn. For a while now I've been particularly fascinated by the idea of seeing a physically strong man in artistic rope bondage; tight rope curving around bulging muscles. The idea of strength subdued and power restrained.
With his athletic physique and experience as a nude model, our newest switch performer Will Savage provided the perfect opportunity to test my ideas.
Introducing new switch performer Will Savage, freshly oiled and showing off his muscular physique. Strength and power are slowly tamed as he kneels and submits to tightly tied hemp rope.
Many thanks to rigger Ariel Anderssen (AKA Amelia Jane Rutherford) and photographer Hywel Phillips for helping me bring this vision to life. I love the results, and producing this male bondage photo set has only whetted my appetite for more.
It seems I'm not alone, either.
Musclebound went up on Friday. On Saturday, I uploaded a couple of preview images to Fetlife. By Sunday night, one image had climbed to the top of the "Kinky & Popular" feed, with over 1000 "loves". The other followed not far behind.
This feed is not just based on how many likes or comment a picture has, but has an algorithm that seems to take into account recent activity, maintaining a balance of media types, and quite possibly some human moderation as well. The tendency of the feed to include a majority of white, skinny, naked women has been well documented. Men are rare; male submissives are practically invisible. (Likewise, the Fetlife homepage always includes a photograph, usually of rope bondage, always, always of a female, white, skinny bottom.)
As I write this, our photo of Will Savage bound in rope has 3,734 "loves" and 390 comments, all positive, both numbers climbing by the minute. A lot of people have commented on how rare it is to see a male submissive featured in K&P, and how much they appreciated it. Here's a tiny sample:
Take one look at this thread and tell me again that "men just aren't that nice to look at naked" or "women just aren't that visual".
The kinky world, or at least the part of it that spends time on Fetlife, is crying out for more beautiful imagery eroticising and celebrating male submission. I am absolutely bowled over by the scale of the response this photo has received. It's renewed my determination to continue the work I'm doing to produce imagery that depicts male submission, as well as female, as positive, sexy and beautiful.
If you like Musclebound, you may enjoy a couple of other sites I've found recently which provide sexy photos of men in bondage.
FM Concepts is a digital download site which contains fetish photos and videos starring both male and female subs. Their Men in Bondage section contains a large number of titles including, interestingly, many scenes in which men and women are tied up together, as well as F/M scenarios. Seems I'm not the only one who thinks that boys and girls getting into trouble together is hot.
The other link I stumbled across this week is a tumblr site called Dudes in Distress which publishes original male bondage photography by two kinky ladies. The boys are cute, the photography and the bondage are beautiful, and the predicaments are creative.
Dreams of Spanking is first and foremost a spanking site, so aside from introductory model photosets like this one of Will, bondage is mostly something I will only include as part of a spanking scene. But there is clearly a need for more beautiful imagery of men in bondage, as well as more D/S erotica focussed on the male submissive. I already have all sorts of ideas about potential spin-off projects.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Musclebound; and we have two scenes featuring all three of Will Savage, bondage and spanking still to come.
I'll leave you with a poem about the submission of a strong, powerful man by the excellent Labcoats and Lingerie, which I think is beautiful.
Give me the lion
What use have I for worms?
I am no gardener.
Where I could crush with the toe of my boot,
I’m reluctant to step.
For they are hard to see, down there,
competing to wriggle the lowest.
From the height of a human it’s hard to tell one from another.
So I wait,
and watch–kindly–so as not to interrupt
as they wriggle away in search of a thing that I’m not.
I do not need a worm.
Give me the lion.
Give me the lion with the orange mane,
the teeth, the sweeping tail,
quiet paws, and the unmistakable
curve of his spine.
No housecat he, declawed and docile,
content with long-dead food.
He tears his meat with me,
‘Til I challenge him:
tossing scraps on the ground and watching his hackles rise.
We test one another.
If I do not stand over him–if I turn, and assume his obedience–
he may tear me to pieces
(and I will deserve it).
You must. Respect. The beast.
Therefore he tests
the still and wordless strength
in my gaze, and the tension I keep on the chain in my hand;
in return I test his will, and smile
when he finally lowers his head to obey me
He wears my collar, but it doesn’t make him tame.
It just makes him mine.
Astride his ferocity I am ferocious:
marking his rippling hide,
or twisting a hand through the curls of his mane to hold him.
When I mount him, and ride,
I command the world.
So keep your worms, and give me the lion.
Give me the lion, a chair and whip,
and we shall roar.
