BBW II: Atlantic City

Posted at 00:27 on 2 May 2013 by Pandora / Blake

After the shoot with Punished Brats, my friend Benman picked me up from David Pierson's house and drove me to Atlantic City. To avoid the rush hour traffic we took a long-winded route south, then east through Pennsylvania. This drive gave me the opportunity to see more of the picturesque, luxuriously spacious suburbs where we'd been shooting and, as we headed into the city, Philadelphia itself. As the buildings grew closer together and became more run-down, everything felt less alien, and we moved into a more recognisably urban cityscape of murals and mosques and high rise office buildings. The scenic route added over an hour to our journey time, but I appreciated it; it was good to see more of the state I was travelling through. Once onto the interstate we drove through a wooded national reserve, over the state boundary and into New Jersey, where there wasn't much landscape of interest en route to Atlantic City except a few small lakes.

We finally arrived at the hotel at 8pm and checked into our rooms. I opened the curtains and instantly fell in love with the view:

BBW III: Dana Kane, new connections, and caning Jade

Posted at 22:58 on 20 May 2013 by Pandora / Blake

It's a month since I was in Atlantic City for the Boardwalk Badness Weekend spanking party. As with my blog reports on the Texas All-State Party last summer, I had time for a couple of posts in the immediate aftermath, but then life took over. After all, travelling creates a backlog of things that need doing back home, and between catching up with work, gardening, fitness activities and couple time, blogging has taken a back seat. I do want to finish telling these stories, though; it was an important and memorable week for me. I hope you'll bear with me while I finish sharing my adventures.

On Friday morning I woke up at 7am, an hour before my alarm, with my head whirling, replaying conversations that had happened the day before, slotting various memories into place.

Censored by CCBill

Posted at 23:15 on 22 May 2013 by Pandora / Blake

I received an email this week from CCBill, the billing agent who handles the credit card transactions for Dreams of Spanking. The email notified me that they had recently reviewed my site, and now required me to make certain wording changes, or else they would disable my billing. "Terms, Themes, and Marketing (Other Violation - Egregious)" was the heading, followed by a list of pages (mostly blogposts) where the words "non-consent", "force" or "rape" were used.

For instance, the text that Ten Amorette had sent me for her profile page contained the following sentence:

Reluctantly, silenced.

Well, the censorship saga with payment processor CCBill and my female-gaze porn site Dreams of Spanking got much, much worse. I wrote last week about the ridiculous wording changes they required, including censoring discussions of consensual and ethical production on the blog. I did as I was told. Unfortunately, that was far from the end of it.

To explain why I CCBill sent me another email last Friday detailing an entirely new set of changes and deletions I needed to make, I have to explain a tedious technical thing. I have a client account with CCBill, of which the website www.dreamsofspanking.com is a subaccount. I can run as many websites as I want, each with its own subaccount. Every time you create a new subaccount, that site has to go through the approval process with the CCBill policy review team.

When I launched Dreams, www.dreamsofspanking.com was up and running as a pre-launch site containing a blog and other previews. Alongside that, prior to launch the main paysite existed at dev.dreamsofspanking.com while D and I were building it. We put all the content on the dev site, submitted that and got it approved; only then were we able to set up and test the credit card billing, which we needed to do before we could launch. So we launched, and went to change the subaccount URL to www.dreamsofspanking.com ... and found out we couldn't. If you want a new URL, you need to setup a new subaccount. I put it on my to do list to do at some point when I had time, and meanwhile just carried on accepting payments to dev.dreamsofspanking.com.
