Dreams of Spanking - bent over for the brush

Posted at 10:44 on 4 Mar 2020 by Pandora / Blake

A new Dreams of Spanking photo gallery is up and it’s all about the clothes brush. An exciting implement with a powerful sting. 

Pandora Blake bends over for the wooden hairbrush on Dreams of Spanking

In this fantasy, I know that I’m in for a serious punishment. I’m wearing the tiniest denim shorts, as my disciplinarian enjoys seeing me in skimpy clothes. As I bend over, I eagerly await the feeling of this implement against my skin. I feel the impact of the wooden back of the brush, and the first few strokes are almost pleasurable through the denim. But I am aware of what is to come and my heart is racing.

Age verification faces ongoing delay

Posted at 11:30 on 22 Jun 2019 by Pandora / Blake

According to the Guardian, age verification "faces indefinite delay" due to bureaucratic incompetence:

"It is set to be delayed for legal reasons after government officials failed to notify the European commission of key details."

I shouldn't laugh, but this is comedy gold.

The massive privacy failings of this policy should have been a deal-breaker. Legislators should never have tried to regulate the internet by force of law when they don't understand how it works. Thanks to the tireless efforts of campaigners such as myself, Myles Jackman, Jim Killock, Alec Muffett and the rest of Open Rights Group, Backlash UK, Misha Mayfair and others, the threat that age verification represents to the privacy of internet users is well attested, and is now mentioned in any news coverage about the issue.

My most destructive finger slip ever

Posted at 13:59 on 6 Jun 2019 by Pandora / Blake

Since the start of this week I've been on parental leave. Hooray! My baby is due in 4-5 weeks time - which means of course that the birth might happen sooner than that, but it might be later, too. Due "dates" are a bit of a misnomer; it's more of a due month (38-42 weeks gestation).

I decided to give myself the last month of my pregnancy off, and I've been looking forward to this time for ages. Well, I say off. To be truthful, I'd earmarked this time for admin (filing my tax return early so it's out of the way), writing (I made great progress on my book in April, but May was full with other endeavours, so the zeroth draft is still some way from completion), sorting the house out and getting ready for the baby, and resting.

I've also decided to hand over project management for Dreams of Spanking to a trusted friend, so that new updates can go out while I'm caring for my newborn. I have a fair few spanking videos edited and ready to publish, and it will work really well for me to delegate the job of keeping track of what needs doing for each one (in terms of image editing, trailers, writing copy etc) before it can go live. So I've ended up having to do that handover during my "leave", too.

London Porn Film Festival is next week!

Posted at 13:19 on 16 Apr 2019 by Pandora / Blake

I'm so excited that the London Porn Film Festival is back next week and bigger than ever, with eight amazing short film programmes, a "Fuck me in the ear" audio porn workshop, a sex education panel, a full-length feature film, and a special programme curated by the guest of honour, Lina Bembe. This is the third LPFF and it's become one of the highlights of my year. I love having the chance to soak up new porn creations from across the world, and hang out with other people making queer, feminist and kinky porn in the UK and beyond.

Even more thrilling, I'm featured in three films that are screening this year! Two Dreams of Spanking films have been selected, Velvet Touch - a collaboration with Chelsea Poe and Courtney Trouble of QueerPorn.tv - and Even Teachers Make Mistakes, my popular and playful new schoolgirl-with-a-twist film, have both been selected, in the The Wetter The Better and The Kinks Are Alright categories respectively.

Submit to the London Porn Film Festival by Sunday

Posted at 17:10 on 18 Jan 2019 by Pandora / Blake

Is it really nearly that time already? I had an incredible time at the London Porn Film Festival last year. I discovered hot new porn, hung out with delightful porn friends, recorded a podcast and faced my fears in screening a 90 minute retrospective of my work, which was simultaneously wonderful and terrifying. The submission deadline has rolled around again, and if you haven't yet got your films in, you have until this Sunday, 20th January.

This year, the festival are particularly seeking films by and about sex workers; non-western centred films; documentaries; political porn; animations; and archival work.

In this year when age verification is being implemented, political porn is more important than ever. LPFF wants to show even more, and resist even more, at this year's festival.

Guest of Honour at London Porn Film Festival 2018

Posted at 11:28 on 12 Apr 2018 by Pandora / Blake

I'm overjoyed to announce that I have been asked to be the Guest of Honour at the second London Porn Film Festival! The LPFF is an annual festival celebrating queer, feminist, radical and experimental porn from around the world, and this year it runs from Thurs 12th til Sun 15th April - starting tonight! - at The Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury.

I attended last year's festival and did a Q&A on the films I screened, and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to watch lots of diverse, exciting and hot queer porn. You can read press coverage and my comments on last year's event here, and my blogpost about the new experience of creating audio descriptions for my films here.

I am delighted that the festival is returning this year, and excited that it's going from strength to strength. There's a larger programme, more films, and a choice of two workshops, one of which I'll be facilitating - my popular DIY Porn workshop which will be held on Friday (tomorrow) at noon. Making your own porn can enable you to express yourself, enjoy your body, embrace your sexuality, and have fun! Come along for some tips on how to create hot, inclusive porn, and see some sexy clips to showcase some different approaches to DIY porn. I really enjoyed giving this workshop on Valentine's Day and can't wait to do it again - here's my write-up from the last one. There are still a few places left so don't miss out - get your tickets here!

Dear Dreams of Spanking.... an announcement

Posted at 14:00 on 7 Jun 2017 by Pandora / Blake

I've recently made some decisions about the future for me and for Dreams of Spanking.

'We've been together a long time. It's been six and a half years since you opened for business, and I was working and planning for two years before that. You are a labour of love, and before ATVOD came calling, you were a pleasure. I was passionate about you and preferred you to any other project. But under the present circumstances the weight of obligation is growing increasingly heavy'.

Introducing the London Porn Film Festival

Posted at 17:30 on 29 Mar 2017 by Pandora / Blake

Postcards of the London Porn Film Festival

I’m SO happy that London has *finally* got its very own London Porn Film Festival, courtesy of those fabulous queers over at Wotever World <3 It’s on next week from Friday to Sunday (April 7-9), and I’m delighted that they are showing two Dreams of Spanking films: Please May I Come, Mistress and Queer as in Fuck You. Even better, I shall be there to do some Q&As! Ever since I first attended the amazing Berlin Porn Film Festival in 2014, I’ve longed for a London equivalent to showcase radical queer porn in its many beautiful diverse forms, so this is super exciting - please help me support it so it can become an annual event!

Please May I Come, Mistress is part of a 100-minute programme with seven other shorts under the title ‘A Thousand Queer Sexualities - films that span a breadth of erotic possibilities, and at the same time subverts them and swerves past the easy answers’. This film screens alongside Since You Asked So Nicely by Ms Naughty at Bright Desire, starring myself and Parker Marx in my first published boy/girl scene - which is queerer than you might expect.

Queer Porn at the British Film Institute

Posted at 14:51 on 28 Mar 2017 by Pandora / Blake

Myles Jackman, Jiz Lee, Pandora Blake and Jay Bernard at Sexit, BFI Flare

When I started making spanking films I never once imagined that I would get a chance to screen them at the British Film Institute. Porn - especially queer porn and fetish porn, and Dreams of Spanking is firmly in both camps - is in many ways innately counter-cultural. When I launched the site I didn't expect the draconian criminalisation that would follow; but equally I didn't expect that queer porn, specifically my queer spanking films, would be considered cultural enough to be shown somewhere like the BFI.

It's a bittersweet juxtaposition, perfectly illustrated by something I noticed when I arrived at the BFI for Flare, the LGBTQ film festival, at which I was taking part in a panel discussion around how porn law affects queer porn. The banner across the Flare reception desks proclaimed the sponsors of the event; and there on the left was the legend "Supported by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport." How ironic that the very department of the civil service supporting this event is the one which introduced a statutory instrument in 2014 criminalising many forms of queer porn, including my own. It was surreal to speak about that criminalisation, to a sympathetic audience eager to learn how they can resist state oppression, at an event supported by the very public body responsible for that oppression. For me, that dissonance aptly summarised the widening gap between legislation imposed from above by those who have no clue about sexuality or sex work, and an increasingly open-minded public who mostly consider the sex lives of consenting adults to be their own damn business.
 
Before the panel proper, I recorded a video interview alongside queer porn icon Jiz Lee, and Chocolate Chip, who stars in Snapshot, the new "porn noir" sexy whodunnit by Shine Louise Houston, with questions asked by Flare programmer Jay Bernard. Jay is one of the curators of the festival, and they did an amazing job co-ordinating the Sexit panel and programming queer films that center people of colour. The interview was intended to be streamed via Facebook Live, but apparently the BFI is an old old building with shitty connectivity, so it was recorded instead - I'll link the video as soon as it's available.

Interview about feminism and submission at ErikaLust.com

Posted at 11:00 on 4 Mar 2017 by Pandora / Blake

I recently gave an interview to fellow feminist porn producer, the fabulous Erika Lust, which is now available on her website, complete with some pictures and sexy gifs! We talked about how I make my porn ethical; how Dreams of Spanking is at risk from the Digital Economy Bill here in the UK; how many of the fetish acts which seem to have been highlighted as “unacceptable” are those specific to female domination porn; feminism and submission; BDSM in the mainstream, and more. It had to be cut for length, but just for you dear readers here is the interview in full:

Dominance and submission at ethical porn site Dreams of Spanking

Hi Pandora! It's so great to talk to a woman on the same mission as myself to change the face of porn, *virtual high five* :) Now down to business. Your work has been described as "ethically produced fetish content" on your site Dreams of Spanking. Can you explain a little what this means?
