Spanking Korey in the kitchen

Posted at 20:55 on 19 Apr 2014 by Pandora / Blake

Last week we spent a lot of time hanging out with our friends James and Korey Johnson. I first met them at the Texas All State Spanking Party in 2012, where we bonded chatting about selling porn, running websites and content management systems. At Boardwalk Badness Weekend last year I was lucky enough to play with Korey on the last night, but disappointingly, I was so sleep-deprived by that stage in the weekend that my accuracy as a top was not up to my usual standards and I wasn't sure I'd made a great first impression.

Still, the friendship was cemented in the UK last autumn when they came to visit and we spent an enjoyable evening hanging out. We didn't play that time, but it turns out that this was due to a miscommunication rather than a lack of interest on either side. Funny how even seasoned spankos can still miss an opportunity because both of you are too shy to ask straight out, "Would you like to play?" Lesson learned - I'll be more direct in future!

Thankfully, Alex Reynolds has no such shyness and as such is an excellent facilitator of play between her friends. We all had fun during James and Korey's stay in LA, and some of it was even captured on camera. Alex has written an in-depth shoot report on the Northern Spanking forum.

Adventures and shoots in California

Posted at 19:09 on 18 Apr 2014 by Pandora / Blake

My week in Canada for the Feminist Porn Awards and Feminist Porn Conference was intense. I want to write more about it here, and I'm intending to post the text of the two talks I gave, too, but in the meantime you can read a short recap on the Dreams of Spanking blog.

I flew straight from Toronto to LA, and landed amongst palm trees, blue skies and sunny weather. As Chris would say, I felt tumble-dried after my flight - jet lag was still chasing me from the UK and in Toronto it would have been nearly bedtime even if I hadn't been skimping on sleep the last few nights.

Still, I was on the West Coast, and on our way to get some food Alex and Paul suggested that we drive to the beach for my first proper sight of the Pacific ocean. (I glimpsed it from Vancouver a few years ago, but never made it down to the beach). The sky and sea were very blue, the beach was surprisingly full of people for a Monday afternoon in April, including families and a dude sitting cross-legged to meditate. I really was in California.

Empower yourself through porn

Posted at 18:40 on 26 Mar 2014 by Pandora / Blake

How to empower yourself through DIY porn, by Pandora Blake

It's weird to me how many producers in the adult industry are jealous about their knowledge. A lot of people are reluctant to share info that's seen as "insider", and it baffles me. How are we going to make porn more diverse, more ethical and more transparent if we don't open the gates and let people in? I get people coming to me all the time asking me for info about how to get started in porn. My advice may not be perfect but I'm happy to give it.

It seems silly to me to be threatened by the idea of having more competition in the porn industry. Porn is inherently, absolutely personal and everyone has something different to offer. I have my audience, you will find yours and there's more than enough to go round. There's really no need to guard our "industry secrets" so closely.

Newsflash! Feminist porn isn't news

Posted at 00:17 on 24 Mar 2014 by Pandora / Blake

@MartinDaubney: The rise of social, ethical, shared porn for women. Today's @thesunnewspaper with @NichiHodgson

Given my general hatred of all things tabloid, I was surprised to learn that I'd been mentioned in the Sun newspaper. Even more surprised to learn that the article - on "the rise of social, ethical, shared porn for women" - has a positive spin.

Pandora Blake has a brilliant spanking website which shows you how to do it. Women like these more educational porn sites, so they can put it into practice in real life and let fantasy bleed into reality. Men tend to use porn in isolation, women want the porn experience to enrich sex with their partners.

Girl friendly porn, tested by Pandora Blake and Lucy Hancock

Read the full article in the February issue of FHM, now on the shelves in the UK - it's on pages 122-123. If you aren't in the UK you can order a digital copy here. And if you haven't seen it already, don't forget to check out yesterday's blogpost on the hilarious, fascinating experience of watching porn for a men's lifestyle magazine.

Women watching porn

Posted at 11:48 on 20 Jan 2014 by Pandora / Blake

Before Christmas I was asked to participate in a feature for FHM on women watching porn. For my non-UK readers, FHM is a "lads' mag", a lifestyle and softcore porn magazine for young men, kind of like a cheaper version of Penthouse. Interestingly, these publications also seem to be one of the few resources for young men which openly discuss sex and relationships, and so they aren't without value - although the quality of the advice varies hugely.

I hadn't met the writer before. When he'd asked for recommendations for "woman friendly" porn I sent him the list of websites nominated for a Feminist Porn Award last year. He'd bought short-term subscriptions to four sites for us to look at: The Art of Blowjob, Bright Desire, I Feel Myself, and X-Art.

I showed up at his North London flat, and he poured me a glass of red wine while we waited for the other woman he'd invited - one @lucyannhancock, another journalist and (I think) a friend of his. When Lucy arrived she joined me in a glass of wine - I think both of us felt that booze would be required to not find this experience weird. Originally, it was going to be Lucy and GirlontheNet, but GotN sadly had to decline when she learned that FHM intended to take photographs, and suggested me instead.

Spanked to tears (part 2)

Posted at 20:06 on 10 Oct 2013 by Pandora / Blake

I wrote yesterday about a couple of recent scenes with D that brought me to tears. Tears during spanking are both often sought after and misunderstood. Some people seem to build them up as a sort of ultimate signifier of severity. You know: if you don't cry, it wasn't hard enough; if you cry it must have been really bad. But as my experiences with D show, tears can be triggered by the lightest of spankings. It can be simply about your emotional state going into a scene, the trust between you and your spanking partner, a feeling of helplessness or vulnerability.

I sometimes receive emails from submissive clients asking if I can make them cry in a scene. This request is usually framed as being about "pushing their limits", but tears and limits are by no means synonymous. Actually, pushing my limits is generally an empowering experience for me, a challenge of my strength, and rarely associated with the fragile, vulnerable headspace in which I'm likely to cry.

Crying during spanking is, I think, fundamentally about letting go. If you are trying to control yourself, your reactions, or the scene itself, you're unlikely to cry.

Introducing the female gaze

Posted at 14:04 on 28 Jul 2013 by Pandora / Blake

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to speak at Gender Sex London on the topic of the female gaze in kinky porn, alongside male performer Michael Darling. It was a great evening, with a really positive reception and lots of thoughtful contributions from those who attended. You can read a storify of live tweets from the evening here.

I'll post the text of my one-hour talk in two parts.

Trust funds and swimsuits

Posted at 23:30 on 20 Jun 2013 by Pandora / Blake

There have been a couple of scenes on Sarah Gregory's sites lately starring me, and I really like the look of both of them.

The first is on Sarah Gregory Spanking, and is called Trust Fund Babies. Sarah, Amelia and I shot this almost exactly a year ago at the Texas All-State Spanking Party last summer. I have very fond memories of that trip. TASSP 2013 is this weekend, and although I really didn't have time to travel again this year, I'm sorry to not be there with a lovely group of my kinky friends, and hope everyone has a wonderful time.

In this scene, Amelia and I play snooty Sloanes who have inherited trust funds from their grandfather. When we visit the executor of his will, Miss Gregory, to collect the first installments, we are horrified to learn that grandpa left a clause in his will. He had watched us grow up into materialistic, self-centered young ladies and he decided that our inheritance should come with a price. Each time we collect a cheque, we have to be spanked!
