I made a post recently about Northern Spanking, a site very close to my heart. They've recently(ish) unveiled a brand new website that I think has a lot to offer the online spanking community, and it was an honour to act as their web designer and make it all happen. I wanted to follow that up with a closer look at Northern Spanking themselves - who they are, what they do, and why we love working together whenever we get the chance.

I first appeared on the UK spanking scene in 2006, and Northern Spanking was already well established. They've been going since the late 90s, and they're absolutely the industry leaders when it comes to ethics, diversity and inclusivity. Thanks to the UK's unstable and draconian porn censorship laws they're now based in LA, but they were originally a British site - in fact, Northern Spanking was a huge part of how I got my start as a spanking porn performer.

I learned a lot from those early shoots with Northern Spanking. They have an impeccable reputation for treating their performers well, and their shoots are always beautifully well-organised down to the last tiny detail. Right from the start, one of my core goals for Dreams of Spanking was to make my performers feel as good on set as I always have when shooting with Northern Spanking: they know all the right questions to ask about what your limits are, what you enjoy doing and who you want to work with. There's always someone to pick you up from the station; shoots are negotiated well in advance and with consent at their heart; food and drink is provided all day and there's usually time left at the end to hang out in the hot tub and socialise with other performers over a glass of wine.

Another of my favourite things about Northern Spanking is how diverse and inclusive they are: since their inception their performers have spanned a huge range of bodies in type, shape and size. They showcase performers of colour, older performers, queer and genderqueer performers; unlike many studios, their films aren't all comprised of slender white women in their early twenties - Dreams of Spanking and Northern Spanking both are devoted to celebrating beautiful bottoms of all shapes and sizes!

This tendency toward variety isn't only for their performers, either. Their scenes are just as diverse as their casting; while they excel at the 'traditional' spanking scenarios, there's a lot more to their back catalogue than stern authority figures and naughty schoolgirls. They've filmed some very serious institutional fantasies involving themes of coercion and non-consensual corporal punishment, some of which get quite severe, and producing this kind of work is a luxury you can enjoy when your performers feel truly safe with you. Northern Spanking takes the time to build up trusting relationships with the performers who work with them, and when you don't rush people into anything you often find they'll volunteer to go deeper and experience more.

On the other side of the coin, they've made some films that are genuinely funny - and not the unintentional humour of cliched mainstream pornography, either! My personal favourites include Schoolgirls In Space (complete with tinfoil hat) and Strictly Come Spanking, a gleefully silly spanking-themed reality show based of course on the annual BBC smash hit of a similar name.

The people behind Northern Spanking are good friends of mine, and I'm deeply appreciative of everything they've done over the years both for me personally and for the community in general. If you're interested - and you will be, if you're a fan of my work at Dreams - I've written more about the new site here, and you'll find NS themselves at northernspanking.com.
