I recently had the pleasure of playing host to Sarah Gregory and her real-life daddy Paul 'Tubaman' Rogers on their UK tour. It was great to have the opportunity to meet them, and working together was lots of fun.
I'd originally hoped for a shoot trade, but Sarah's schedule was insane (all power to that lady - her energy puts even me to shame!) and there wasn't time to squeeze in a second day. So it looks like I'll need to make the trip to visit her if I want to include her in my own productions - which I might well do, as she was great fun to work with. In the meantime, expect to see me on Sarah Gregory Spanking sometime, alongside all the UK stars she shot with on her whirlwind tour - I'm particularly looking to see what she got up to with Leia Ann Woods and Amelia Jane Rutherford!
We filmed a bunch of short clips for Paul's forthcoming Spanking 101 site, including some funny "how not to" instructional videos. On top of these there were a couple of "spanking shorts" for Paul, in which I got spanked in a ridiculously small pair of denim short shorts, made even more revealing by rips in the back. (They had Tom's eye roving a fair bit when I bumped into him between shooting: note to self, bring those back out when I'm feeling the need for some toppy attention!) With three longer roleplay scenes for Sarah's site thrown in, complete with stills, it was a full day.
The scenarios included an F/f college room-mates one in which Sarah takes revenge on me for plagiarising her term paper, and a fun school scene with both of us in matching English school uniforms and Paul as the teacher (who, in the story, was also Sarah's dad, with her having travelled with him when he got the job in England... which meant her character thought she could get away with murder, and was quickly proved wrong!).
I love dressing up in the sort of actual uniform I had to wear as a kid, complete with thick woolly sweaters which are completely unsexy to everyone except spankos. (And completely the wrong clothing for a hot and muggy English summer day - we were sweating throughout, and as soon as the camera was off we stripped off as fast as we could just to cool down!) For some reason whenever I'm wearing something like this on a shoot the skirt always ends up a size too small and the jumper a size too big, which makes the whole thing feel even more incongruous. Although it does also result in the skirt being very very tight when you're bent over a lap, so maybe it's partly deliberate.
My favourite scene was an ingenious - and very American! - one in which I played a college student trying to get accepted into a sorority. I had to knock on a random door in my neighbourhood, and, squirming with embarrassment, ask whoever answered the door to spank me, hard, with hand and wooden paddle. Only if my bottom was deemed red enough in the ensuing photographic evidence would I be accepted, otherwise I'd have to start all over again with a different door.
It was a cool concept: totally consensual, to the extent of the bottom driving the scene and the top amiably (if appreciatively!) going along with things.
Paul played the kindly neighbour very well indeed - his gentle courtesy really added to the role. My character was dying of humiliation, but also sort of determined to only go through with it once, so even though she hated being spanked she kept asking if her bottom was red enough yet, and insisting that Paul spank her harder when she was worried that the results wouldn't be good enough! It was a psychological angle I'd never really done before, and it was interesting to play with.
Someone had clearly been reading my recent tweets expressing my recent fixation with wooden paddles as a fantasy. This wasn't one of the thick ones with holes in, but it still packed a hefty punch, and ten solid whacks with it (actually eleven, as my character was concerned that one wasn't hard enough, and asked for one of them again! Madness!) were not to be sneezed at. In fact, including the other clips, I think I took a total of seventeen swats with that paddle over the course of the day. Adrenaline and the roleplay scenario made it easier to take the ten than I'd expected, although I wouldn't want to do it every day. But I don't think it cured me of the fantasy!
