#MasturbationMonday: what's the weirdest object I've ever used to masturbate with?

Posted at 15:25 on 31 Jul 2017 by Pandora Blake

I don't know about you but I find Mondays a bit dull - back at work, energy dipping after the weekend, and five whole days to go until next Saturday - so I thought let's spice them up a bit! I'm excited to introduce my first #MasturbationMonday! I'm hoping to find inspiration in the hashtag for semi-regular naughty posts, and I encourage you all to share your selfies, stories, favourite images and video clips, recommendations and nudes on Twitter, tumblr and Instagram with the hashtag #masturbationmonday.

To kick things off, here's a smutty interview I did for Erika Lust's Masturbation Interview series - it's always an honour to be asked to do an interview by Erika, and I was happy to oblige. It was a interesting and quite sexy to think about questions I'd never considered before such as 'what colour is your orgasm?' and 'do you agree that there should be masturbation areas in airports?' So if you ever wanted to know what the weirdest object I've ever used to masturbate is, whether I've masturbated in public, or been caught masturbating, now's your chance to find out!

Age verification critiqued on Radio 4

Posted at 18:35 on 30 Jul 2017 by Pandora Blake

Photo of credit cards, one of the potential means of age verification mentioned by Digital Minister Matt Hancock

So while I was away this month, I got cited by a Radio 4 presenter.

I listened to the segment on the BBC website after a heads up from some kind folks on Twitter. You can listen to it here until Wed 16 August - the relevant section begins at 32:51. Presenter Eddie Mair was interviewing Matt Hancock, the Digital Minister, about the age verification policy enshrined in the Digital Economy Act 2017. Unfortunately, Matt Hancock didn't come across very well. He sounded bumbling and under-informed, unable to give any clear answers about how age verification will work in practice. After claiming that age verification won't require giving any identifying information, the only means of verifying your age that he was able to think of were a passport and credit card - both of which involve revealing your identity, and exclude many marginalised adults without access to these documents from being able to look at porn. Not only that, but it's in doubt whether credit cards will be accepted by the regulator as a compliant form of age verification, as it's possible for under 18s to have them. Clearly Matt Hancock hasn't spent much time looking into this.

Tantra Punk podcast

Posted at 15:28 on 19 Jun 2017 by Pandora Blake

Tantra Punk logoI love recording audio. Since I haven't found time yet to record my own podcast series, I welcome the chance to appear on other peoples'.  Tantra Punk is a podcast devoted to sexual liberation, healing and empowerment, with a new episode released every week or so. He interviews a fascinating range of individuals, from shamans to social workers. I spent an hour talking to him on Skype, and our chat is now available on his site.

We talked about what it means to be a queer feminist porn producer, my ethos behind making films and creating Dreams of Spanking, my fight with ATVOD, the Digital Economy Bill campaign, age verification, what ethical porn means to me - especially when it comes to performer's rights - and lots more. Do have a listen!

Interview with Marie Claire on feminist porn

Posted at 18:19 on 16 Mar 2016 by Pandora Blake

I recently had the pleasure of talking to the features editor of Marie Claire magazine Indonesia, who wanted to run an interview with a female pornographer. Somehow they stumbled across my name, and got in touch to ask if I'd like to take part. I was a bit surprised to be asked - with my niche spanking fixation and weird insistence on shooting non-consent fantasies, I'm hardly a straightforward representative of the feminist porn movement. But the questions were interesting, and I had fun answering them. I also enjoyed the challenge of finding a selection of pictures from Dreams of Spanking that were suitable for a mainstream women's magazine (ie. no nudity or spanked bums!)

I'm finding it a bit strange how many journalists are interested in talking to me about Dreams of Spanking now that the site is offline, when I struggled for ages to get publicity for the project while it was live. But I suppose if my experiences of government censorship help shed light on the conversation around porn, feminism and production ethics, it's no bad thing. I'm certainly pleased to see a feature like this in a mainstream magazine - it all helps to spread awareness of feminist porn. It's a bit surprising that this is still necessary after 40 years of pioneering work by female directors, but when prominent feminist celebrities are still unaware that any alternatives to heteronormative mainstream porn exist yet, I guess every little helps.

Interview with Jacques Magazine

Posted at 13:15 on 14 Oct 2013 by Pandora Blake

This interview went up at the start of August, during my summer's busiest period, so I've only just got round to sharing it. Jacques Magazine is a new publication in the tradition of classic erotic magazines, combining intelligent articles and opinion with interviews, fiction and hot photo pictorials.

I really enjoyed answering their questions, which included my take on submission, porn production ethics, corporate censorship and the government's "war on porn", and some teaser details about my next porn site project. Thanks Jacques for the fun interview - I'm looking forward to shooting with them when I'm in the US next year!

Clover's first birching

Posted at 18:53 on 10 Jun 2011 by Pandora Blake

Often it's an image that catches my attention first. Lighting, colour, composition - all these can snag my gaze and draw me in. But I look at bodies, too, hungry in particular for representations of the sorts of bodies you see all the time in real life and rarely in erotic imagery. Curvy bodies, for instance. Brown bodies. Male bodies.

I hope Clover won't mind my saying this, but it was definitely her figure that caught my eye in these pictures of her recent birching scene with English Spankers. She has a beautifully narrow waist, muscular midriff and shapely legs, and her skintone is complemented perfectly by the rich wood tones of the room she's photographed in. Once looking, however, it's the content that keeps my attention, particularly the text telling me that these are pictures of her first ever birching.
