On leaving the USA, and loving without fear

Posted at 01:38 on 3 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

This is the article I was sent by Zoe Montana (who I think got it from Molly Malone) last week, which pretty much sums up my entire trip:

Casual Love - Carsie Blanton

"Im thrilled that young people are beginning to feel they have the option of exploring sex, safely and consensually, outside of the boundaries of long-term commitment.

Sinful Sunday - strength and submission

Posted at 11:43 on 4 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

I'm fascinated by the associations between power roles and gender. Dominance and submission are not inherently masculine or feminine - in fact most of us are both at different times. But our society has historically linked the concepts of maleness with sexual/social dominance.

There are other ways to be masculine. Even within the traditional set of cultural associations, the male ideal of chivalry includes a lot that is submissive. The idea of noble service; the knight pledging allegiance to a king or queen. In the modern era, respectable masculinity involves dutifully playing your social role - as public servant, breadwinner, protector - even though it restricts your personal freedom.

Maleness in our society is, in some ways, about the ties that bind. The limited wardrobe; the institutional hierarchies. Roles associated with masculinity, such as politician or soldier, are about strength and power; but they are also about submission.

LA spanking shoots and continued adventures

Posted at 18:43 on 6 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

I'd better wrap up the rest of my social time and spanking shoots in Los Angeles in a single post, so I can get on with telling you all about Boardwalk Badness Weekend. This one is going to be full of photos!

The day after my shoot with the Clare Fonda Network, I finally got to realise a long-term dream: meeting the wonderful Erica Scott. I can confirm that she is just as warm, genuine and hilarious (not to mention hot) in person as she seems in her blog and videos. She took me and Alex to the most amazing cafe for brunch, on a cute street filled with arty little boutiques. There were flowers and little decorative touches everywhere, the sun was shining and the place was thronging with people and little dogs. "This is the authentic south California experience!" Erica assured me. I can certainly see why she's never wanted to leave.

Support Ethical Porn

Posted at 12:13 on 8 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

There's an exciting new initiative happening in the UK which will be of interest to anyone who supports ethical porn. The Ethical Porn Partnership is a new coalition of adult content producers, performers, consumers and supporters, spearheaded by journalist and sex positive feminist Nichi Hodgson. Nichi has a background in the sex industry and is interested in improving communication between adult producers and the media. The Ethical Porn Partnership will showcase, encourage and support alternative, independent porn producers and performers, aiming to make it easier for the press - and for consumers - to learn about ethical porn and discover the breadth of fairtrade, independent porn that is out there.

The Ethical Porn Partnership is about to start the process of putting together a code of ethics, which participating producers and performers will be willing to sign up to. This is not intended to be the "ethics police" but rather a representative set of standards which genuinely reflects the priorities of performers and ethical producers. Of course the more porn industry workers who are able to contribute to the consultation process, the better. Here is Nichi's call for supporters. If you are interested in getting involved, let her know!

Feminist porn on BBC News

Posted at 09:13 on 13 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

I enjoyed chatting to BBC journalist Daniel Nasaw at the Feminist Porn Awards, but I wasn't sure when his article would come out.

The first I knew of it was when I woke up on Friday to find dozens of tweets about it in my mentions feed. I looked and there it was, right on the BBC News homepage!

BBW 2014, Thursday: friends old and new

Posted at 23:37 on 15 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

Boardwalk Badness Weekend 2014 was my most intense spanking party yet; a non-stop whirlwind of play and intimacy and energy.

I arrived on Wednesday night having not really slept the night before due to a late-night farewell to Los Angeles and an early start to catch my flight. The lovely Tattoo_Fairy picked me up from Philadelphia airport, and we chatted and got to know each other better on the drive to Atlantic City. Despite my tiredness I managed to stay up long enough to say hello to people and have a couple of drinks in the hotel bar, then crashed out in Tattoo_Fairy's hotel room - she kindly let me stay with her, since my shared room with Zoe Montana wasn't booked until the next night.

ABDL and age play

Posted at 13:15 on 21 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

Age play occupies a funny space in the kink community. Most spanking fetishists enjoy age play, but not everyone admits it.

Any fantasy based around school, or discipline from an authority figure at home such as a parent, uncle or aunt, is age play; but the phrase age play has only just started to become socially acceptable in the spanking scene. In the last couple of years "littles" events have started appearing at spanking events, which has increased exposure to age play, so I think those barriers are starting to be broken down. More people are discovering the innocent, carefree fun of age regression, which can be as much about colouring and playing with toys as it is about getting into trouble.

However, there still seems to be a barrier about when it comes to ABDL (Adult Baby Diaper Lover). From my perspective in the BDSM and spanking scenes, it seems to me that the schoolgirl/boy fetish is common and socially acceptable, as is being a naughty niece or nephew. Parent/child play such as daddy/daughter, mummy/boy or any other combination is also pretty common, although some people still find it uncomfortable. Being a little aged between, say, 6 and 12 years old, who plays with toy trucks, My Little Pony, crayons and glitter, is less common but becoming increasingly acceptable. And yet being an adult baby is still considered weird or taboo in most of the kinky social scenes I frequent.

An ecstatic beating

Posted at 22:20 on 27 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

I got out of the shower and took D's hands. In the wording that invokes our relationship, I told him that I would really like a flogging, "...on my back and legs and body. Does that sound like something you might enjoy?"

"Yes," he smiled, "I think I can manage that."

I lay face down on the bed, buzzing with happy excitement while he assembled floggers. He gave me a choice, and I picked the ones that looked like they had the most thud. For the last two days I'd been directing a Dreams of Spanking shoot that crackled with energy and joy, and I hadn't been beaten once. Time to redress the balance.

Sex workers tell their stories

Posted at 23:47 on 29 May 2014 by Pandora Blake

The Sex Workers OperaTonight I made a last minute decision (prompted by a friend who had a ticket to sell) to go to the Sex Workers' Opera, and I am so glad I did.

Sex workers are often the subjects (or objects) of stories, but are very rarely given the platform to tell their own story on their own terms. There's something profoundly refreshing about watching a sex work narrative unfold without feeling the usual tension; that fear that sex work will be misrepresented, sensationalised, demonised, glamourised; that sex workers will be objectified; that the narrative will hinge around a worker having her (it's always a woman in these stories) professional boundaries broken, or breaking them herself, for lurrrrve. (Show me a mainstream narrative about sex work which is not about this and I will give you a cookie.)

Sitting in the Courtyard Theatre for the Sex Workers' Opera, for the first time I felt that I could trust that whatever stories would be told, they would carry truth, and they would be told respectfully. It was an exhilarating feeling - as was my fizzing excitement to see the venue filling up and know that both nights of this radical new show had sold out. There's something glorious about sitting in a packed theatre knowing that everyone there is either a sex worker or an ally ... and if they weren't the latter already, they probably would be by the end.
