My episode of Unladylike Manor is up at Spanking Sarah this week. I watched it last night and it's a really fun spanking story which turned out just as well as I'd hoped.
Sarah absolutely excels at twisty, long-running storylines, spanking soap operas if you will, and Unladylike Manor is the longest and twistiest. With its recurring characters, in-jokes and playful sense of humour it seems light on the surface, but there's a dark edge too. Sarah loves blackmail scenarios and other compromising situations, and many of the spankings in the series explore unfair punishments and complex consent.
Being able to do an episode was one of the best things about shooting for Sarah's site. Her personality really shines through, and I expect that women in particular will be drawn to this good-humoured yet compelling web series.
Of course, the Manor is rife with spanky goings on. I play a local police officer who has heard rumours of mistreatment and decides to investigate, off the record. While on leave she applies for the Housekeeping job recently vacated by Katie. But Sarah and Katie are way ahead of her, and WPC Blake gets a little more than she bargained for...
As well as myself and Sarah the film also stars Katie and little dog Evie, who has to be the cutest extra ever seen in a spanking video. WPC Blake of course is more at home with Alsatians. My favourite line is when I ask Sarah "Have you got any guard dogs at the Manor?" and she replies instantly "Well, we've got Katie."
But Katie gives as good as she gets. Knowing that their new 'housekeeper' is an cop in disguise Sarah and Katie want to see how far they can push it, and put WPC Blake up to various indignities including cleaning the toilet with a toothbrush. Mr Stern's toothbrush. Not an old one: his actual toothbrush. He doesn't know, of course. Katie pipes up: "A bit of Jif on it and his teeth came up lovely!"
As for the spankings: the leather paddle really hurt. Sarah blackmails me into taking a punishment by framing me for drug possession and threatening to go to the police. I don't want my unofficial moonlighting to be discovered, so I'm forced to go along with Sarah's proposed solution. Right up until the end I think I can turn it to my advantage, and tell myself I'm collecting valuable evidence for my investigation. But Sarah gets the better of me in the end.
It was a really fun dynamic. I was set up to lose, of course, but I gave a good fight. At no point was my character ever submissive. Helpless but still defiant, after being forced to strip to her underwear WPC Blake snarls at Sarah "I could take you", and Sarah laughs in her face, telling her "I very much doubt it."
Playing to lose is always more fun with a worthy opponent. The battle of wills was made much more interesting by Sarah's fabulous self-possession. Every comeback I threw at her was deflected without missing a beat. It's a pleasure to roleplay with her.
Towards the end, Sarah played her trump card and let me know I'm rumbled by casually remarking, "It's a pity you're not a real housekeeper..."
I snapped back, "It's a pity you're not a real lady!" That got me some whacks. And led to a perfect "unladylike manner" pun which both of us saw coming and fell gloriously into place.
