Why this blog

I have spent over a decade searching the web for videos and websites that appeal to my particular form of spanking fetish (more about that in my 'First Post' under 'About Me'), usually with limited success. I can't believe that my fetish is unique but obviously I'm not part of the 'spanking mainstream'. There were several websites that I found helpful when I first started searching but most of them are long gone. I thought that this blog might be a way I could help others who are searching for the same material I'm trying to find and maybe they could help me in return.

About the picture ... If my memory is correct, it is from a photostory called "A Date with Mr. Cane". I downloaded it many years ago from a website that no longer exists and I have never been able to find the original source. Please leave a message if you can tell me anything more about it.

More Videos from Uncle Bob's Woodshed



I’ve had something of a love/hate relationship with Uncle Bob for a long time, or at least I’ve had love/hate relationship with his videos since I’ve never met the man himself.  I like the type of videos that Uncle Bob produces.  They are the type of video I would make myself if I made videos, but I don’t make videos and I’m quite certain that I never will.  However, I had a summer and after school job in a small market TV station many years ago so I know something about the process so the technical problems that occur in some of his videos drive me crazy.  It appears that most of his videos are filmed in a hotel room and probably at one of the spanking conventions that I have always wanted to attend (but never have) and these two videos are no exception.  

A few new videos recently appeared on Clips4sale, and two of them looked interesting so I bought and watched them.  The love/hate relationship continues.  The two videos were ‘Syrena’s Naked Love Spanking’ and ‘Affectionate Severity’.  Both of this videos feature Syrena Vaedya who has worked for a number of sites but none that I follow so I have mostly seen her in clips on Spankingtube.com.  ‘Syrena’s Naked Love Spanking’ is just over 11 minutes long.  The video opens with her walking into the room and undressing, which is shown from two angels, and then taking her place over his knee and he gives her a long hand spanking that lasts about 7 minutes.  That’s really all there is to the video.  It’s simple, it’s straightforward, it delivers what it promises and I like it.

I wasn’t as impressed with ‘Affectionate Severity’.  This video is just over 10 minutes long.  Same people, same hotel room but this time Syrena is topless when she walks into the room.  There is a chair is next to the bed and she takes her place over the armchair.  Uncle Bob starts with a hand spanking through her shorts but these quickly come down and the spanking continues.  Eventually he takes of his belt which he uses for the second half of the punishment.  Again, it's simple and straightforward, but I didn't like this video because of two serious technical flaws.

A hotel room is a small space and it's difficult to light a space that small. That problem is certainly evident in this video.  It appears that the video was filmed with just the room lighting and the natural light from the window but some scenes are filmed looking into the window and these are almost unwatchable.  Second, the frame size changes abruptly and it remains this way for the last two minutes of the video.  This just seems to be poor editing and it is hard to understand why the video would have been released with this flaw.  This could have been a good video but the technical flaws are simply unacceptable.





So my love/hate relationship with videos from Uncle Bob's Woodshed continues and they're 50-50 on these two new releases.

Room 2D


I’ve been reading about “Room 2D’ in internet chat rooms for at least 15 years where the movie is invariably described as a classic but I only recently realized that the movie is still available.  Room 2D is a 1983 movie from Roue Productions which still exists but I have never seen much of their work.  A version is available as a ‘CalStar Quickie’ on Clips4sale and the DVD version, of unknown length, is available directly from Roue Productions in the UK (www.roue.com) as part of their ‘Eighties Spanking Classics’ collection.  The CalStar Quickies version of “Room 2D’ is 21-minutes long and it appears to have been digitized from a videotape that had begun to show its age; the color has begin to fade and there is moderately loud static on the soundtrack which sometimes makes it hard to understand the dialogue.

A new student at a private school, Lucy Palmer, dropped a pile of hymn books during choir practice  and she was ordered to go to the school’s notorious Room 2D where punishments are administered.  Lucy is an attractive blonde who looks like she could actually be a student.  We first see her waiting in the room but Mr. Harris soon arrives who takes down her name and other information.  He then instructs her on how to prepare herself for her punishment and delivers a few sharp slaps on her bare bottom in the process.  He tells her to wait bent over a desk with her panties down for the Choirmaster and, at about the 8 minute mark, he leaves the room.


The Choirmaster, Mr. Clark, soon arrives and we hear the two talking, like the teachers in a CharlieBrown cartoon, outside the room.  Mr Clark comes in and delivers another twenty-or-so slaps on her bottom then he reaches for the cane. He gives her 14 strokes over the course of nearly 8 minutes but the strokes appear to be  firmly delivered and the leisurely pace of the caning together with Lucy’s reactions as she waits between strokes make this one of the most memorable canings I can recall.  After the caning, Mr Clark mentions that it is Lucy’s birthday and the school has a birthday tradition.  He orders Lucy to take her skirt off and kneel on a chair (with her panties still down).  He then tells her to wait for the Headmaster to arrive and he leaves the room.  This is where the CalStar Quickies version ends.



Based on what I’ve read, particularly in a 2003 thread called “Room 2D – £500 Reward” that is still available on the British Spanking Forum, I understand that the story continues with the Headmaster giving Lucy another dozen strokes of the cane as she kneels on the chair.  Several people reported having seen this longer version and the originator writes that he was told by people at Janus, the London-based distributor of spanking movies and magazines, that the full version had been withdrawn from distribution because it was 'too severe'.  The originator of the thread offered a £500 reward for a full version of the movie but it doesn’t appear that he was successful.

I really liked this movie and I want to see the full version.  I have never seen the DVD version available from Roue and I would like to know if it is the full 30 minutes.  Has anyone seen it?

Spanking the Teacher



Spanking the Teacher is a 48 minute movie from Paradox Adult Filmed Entertainment.  There is no date on the film, and none of my sources give one, but it appears that it was made sometime around 2000.  It is currently available from 1st Choice Spanking, Spanking for Pleasure (SfP) and Cal Star.



The movie has two parts, both involving a blonde teacher known only as Miss Armstrong.  In the first part, which last almost 16 minutes, she deals with a disruptive student in her 'usual' manner which includes a lengthy hand spanking, a leather paddle and a cane.  I’m not convinced that ‘Miss Armstrong’ is played by an experienced Dom since the punishment is delivered in rapid flurries and she seems to have trouble controlling the cane, as evidenced by the three welts that appear on the student’s upper thigh.   


The first part ends with a scene of the topless student standing with a cane but this is totally gratuitous and unrelated to anything that has gone before.   I wasn’t impressed by this part of the movie and it isn’t helped by a cameraman who seems to imagine himself to be a very artistic cinematographer; some shots are filmed ‘on an angle’ (see the screen shot of the final scene), which is annoying, and far too many scenes are poorly framed or filmed from bad angles. 

 
The second part of the movie is much better.  The student has told her father about Miss Armstrong’s activities so he decides to pay her a visit at home.  After a lengthy discussion that lasts nearly 5 minutes, which actually works since whoever is playing Miss Armstrong is a better-than-average actress for a spanking movie (admittedly that isn’t a very standard), she agrees to submit to punishment to avoid being reported to the school authorities.   



The father is played by a familiar face in English spanking movies and his punishments are more competently administered than Miss Armstrong’s.  Her punishment begins with an OTK spanking and she is nearly, but not quite naked by the end of this.  Her punishment then proceeds through the leather paddle to the tawse and there is a much-too-short scene of a hand strapping that I wish was longer.  As expected, her punishment ends with the cane.  She becomes increasing disheveled as the punishment proceeds and she appears quite morose by the end. 


This story has been done many times before but I have a ‘soft spot’ for movies that turn the tables on an authority figure like a teacher.  The 1996 Moonglow movie ‘Teacher’s Folly’ is one of my favorites and it has some similarities to this movie.  


I liked the second part of ‘Spanking the Teacher’ much more than the first.  The camera work in the second part of the movie is better than it was in the first part but it still leaves much to be desired but ‘Miss Armstrong’ made this movie for me.  I have never been able to find out who plays that role but I would like to know if she has ever made any other movies.  Any information you may have would be appreciated.

Caning All Hours



‘Caning All Hours’ is available from http://www.1stchoicespanking.com/.  It is also distributed by CalStar in the US as part of the ‘Tales of the Rod’ series.

‘Caning All Hours’ was made by 1st Choice Spanking in the UK around 2001.  It runs slightly under 28 minutes.   It is a two hander with English porn star Jack Uppitt as a shopkeeper who catches a shoplifter, played by an unidentified Russian blonde in the act.  The shopkeeper takes the woman to his storeroom and searches her for stolen goods, but he stops short of a complete strip search.  Following a tried and true storyline he gives her the choice of corporal punishment or being turned over to the police and, of course she chooses the corporal punishment, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.


 The punishment starts with an OTK spanking, first with her pants down and later with her fully nude.  The OTK spanking is followed by a short session of calisthenics which has never held much interest for me but she definitely moves in the right places if that is your interest.  Next, she bends over a car for a session with a small leather strap which, as might be expected, is followed by a caning.
 

The caning is about 30 strokes but a few strokes of the caning are obviously doubled.  Just after a scene showing a close up of her face during four strokes that ends with an unusually loud yelp, there is a welt just below her left butt cheek and continuing on her right thigh )visible in the last screen capture).  It disappears after an edit then we see four strokes ending with the stroke that cause that welt.

 

The movie ends with the shopkeeper telling our shoplifter that he isn’t finished with her and that she can please him later.  After confirming that she understood what he meant, and there certainly wasn’t anything subtle about it, he sends her off to clean his apartment above the shop. 





I liked this movie, mostly because of the shoplifter.  It seems that she can barely speak English but I find her attractive and she takes a good caning with just the right amount of reaction for me.  I have never seen her in any other movie, which is a disappointment.  Another disappointment is that we never have a good side view of her, showing both her body and face, during the caning.

Corporal Punishment in Women’s Institutions, Part 1

Available at http://nu-westleda.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=619

Ed Lee, the stage name of Dave Nielson who died in 2013, was one of the first producers of CP movies that I found when I started searching the web but I didn’t start buying his videos until much later; his website never gave very much information about his videos (and it still doesn’t) and I wasn’t inclined to buy without knowing more.  Eventually I took the chance on his later ‘Whipping Day at Table Mountain’ videos and I recently had the chance to watch the first part of his Corporal Punishment in Women’s Institutions series.  It certainly lived up to its reputation.  The production values of the early Nu-West videos tend to be 'bare bones' but their content compares well with more recent productions.
 
Corporal Punishment in Women’s Institutions is a series of 5 videos.  I’m not sure when they were produced but I remember seeing screen shots from these videos on the internet almost 20 years ago.  Based on the quality, I suspect they were originally filmed on videotape sometime in the eighties and later digitized.  Unfortunately it appears that the tapes had started to demagnetise before they were digitized and there were some glitches in the transfer but these aren’t serious.

The first part of Corporal Punishment in Women’s Institutions (NWV-097) was filmed on a nearly bare set consisting of only an upholstered bench and some hideous blue or maybe green walls.  It is 31 minutes long and there is no dialogue worth mentioning, just some background conversation that is barely audible.  The video consists of three segments; the first begins with a matron bring in a blonde prisoner who is wearing only a tee-shirt, panties and socks.  The prisoner is stripped and then loosely tied facedown on the bench.  A second Matron arrives and uses an implement called a ‘pandybat’ on the website to administer a severe 50 swat punishment.  I had never heard of a pandybat but Wiktionary describes it as a “stout leather strap reinforced internally with whalebone ...”.  It isn’t nearly as flexible as most leather straps but it appears to be a very severe implement.  The punishment consists of three groups of 10 swats followed by a final group of 20 and the matron certainly doesn’t hold back.  The first segment is 14 minutes long.

The second and third segments follow exactly the same pattern.  The second prisoner is a brunette who appears almost comatose while she is being tied to the bench but the pandybat quickly raises her out of her stupor.  The third prisoner is another blonde who is much more animated than the second.

I liked this video despite its simplicity.  The first segment is my favorite of the three but I do have one secret fantasy.  I would have liked to have seen if the matron wielding the pandybat could take it as well as she dishes it out.  Unfortunately we never get to find out.

I haven’t watched any of the later parts of this series but they are now on the list of videos that I want to see, maybe sometime soon.

Lady Vernon's Caning Heaven and Lady Vernon Strikes Again

Available from http://www.1stchoicespanking.com/ and on several 'video-on-demand' sites.  Most of the screenshots in this review are from “Lady Vernon’s Caning Heaven Part II” but the last is from “Lady Vernon Strikes Again”.

I have ignored this poor little blog for far too long due to a combination of far too much travel and a shortage of new material.  The travel continues but I hope I can squeeze in a couple of new posts over the next few weeks.

A little over a year ago I was able to obtain a copy of an older movie called “Lady Vernon’s Caning Heaven Part II” that I quite enjoyed and I started a quest to find the rest of that series.  It didn’t take too long to obtain a copy of what I believe is the final movie in the series ("Lady Vernon Strikes Again") but I had less success in finding the first part.  Eventually, I was able to find “Lady Vernon’s Caning Heaven Part I” on a ‘video-on-demand’ site but after watching it once I had no interest in ever seeing it again.

All three Lady Vernon movies were made by 1st Choice Spanking in the UK and distributed by CalStar in the US.  There are no credits or copyright dates on the versions of the movies that I’ve seen.  Some sources on the web say that “Lady Vernon’s Caning Heaven Part I” was made in 1999, Part II was made in 2000 and “Lady Vernon Strikes Again” was made in 2002.  I can’t confirm those dates but, from the locations and Lady Vernon’s hair I suspect that Lady Vernon’s Caning Heaven Parts I and II were made at about the same and Lady Vernon Strikes again was made later.

“Lady Vernon’s Caning Heaven Part I” begins with two students, a blonde and a brunette, from a local boarding school stealing apples from Lady Vernon’s orchard.  She catches them and decides to make an example of them.  She starts by giving the blonde an OTK hand spanking and, after the girl undresses, this is followed by the strap and then the cane.  The brunette is next but her caning ends after only 2 strokes; I assume that the model refused to continue.  After this the action suddenly jumps to the boarding school where the headmaster is giving another student, a different brunette, an OTK hand spanking and a caning.  This final scene was obviously added to fill the hour and, even worse, it looks like it was added to fill the time.  The result is a very unsatisfying ending to what began as a good movie.  I only saw this movie once and I have no desire to see it again.

“Lady Vernon’s Caning Heaven Part II” begins with the local headmaster trying, unsuccessfully, to discipline two students, both blondes.  He remembers Lady Vernon’s treatment of the two earlier students and he decides to retain her services for these two.  The Headmaster drives the two students to Lady Vernon’s where one is told to wait while the other is taken into Lady Vernon’s solarium.  Her punishment begins with an OTK hand spanking that begins over her pants and proceeds through pants down to bare bottom.  This is followed by a selection of paddles, the first administered on her bare bottom then she has to undress completely for the others.  Her punishment ends with the cane.  The first half of this movie includes three scenes of the second student waiting for her punishment, notable mostly for their dreadful overacting, and three scenes filmed from outside looking into the solarium through the windows.  These were an interesting attempt at a different perspective but they are marred by reflections in the window and poor sound.  The second half of Part II follows exactly the same pattern as the first half but it is noticeably more rushed, from the length of the shadows in the final scenes I suspect that they were running out of daylight, and I found it less interesting.

“Lady Vernon Strikes Again” was obviously filmed later (or maybe earlier but I doubt it).  Lady Vernon has longer hair and the setting is much less elegant than the solarium of the first two movies, actually it quite tacky with a garish color scheme.  The movie begins with a young policewoman deciding that a session with Lady Vernon is the ideal approach to deal with an repeat offender.  With the Constables assistance, Lady Vernon delivers a long OTK hand spanking followed by a bare bottom session with a tawse and strap.  Finally, the prisoner has to strip and she receives about 30 strokes of the cane of the cane.  When the caning is finished, Lady Vernon calls the police station to report her work is done but she finds out that the Constable’s actions had not been approved so she will not be paid.  She decides to deal with the errant Constable in the same way she had dealt with the prisoner.  The second act follows the same pattern as the first but the woman playing the Constable is a more interesting bottom.

Caning Heaven Part II (and the first half in particular) is likely to become one of my favorite movies.  The outdoor shots were an interesting touch that didn’t quite work but it was worth the try.  I liked Part I until the abrupt end of the second caning but the filler at the end killed the movie for me.  Lady Vernon Strikes Again is not the equal of Part II but it has its moments.  I have a weakness for movies that turn a dominant character into the bottom so I liked the scene with the policewoman even though I don’t think it’s any better than an average CP session.

The versions of the movies that I have do not include credits so I can’t identify any of the cast aside from Michael Dawes as the Headmaster.  One source I read (Ludwig’s Rohrstock-Palast blog) identified Lady Vernon as a British porn actress known as ‘Stephanie’.  I can’t confirm that but a photo of Stephanie on the British Girls Adult Film Database (BGAFD) looks like she could be Lady Vernon.  Ludwig reports that Stephanie has also worked as a bottom for Sting in the Tail Productions but I can’t confirm that since I haven's seen the movie in question.

Meter Beating

Trailer available at http://www.1stchoicespanking.com/movies/p116/spanking/Meter-Beating.  The screenshots used in the review are also from the 1st Choice Spankings website.



"Meter Beating" was produced by 1st Choice Spanking and distributed in the US by CalStar. One of my sources dates the movie to 1999 which certainly seems plausible.  The same source says that the blond actress in Jan Burton and the brunette is Malvina Layton; both are well known British porn stars and a quick search of the web suggests that those identifications are probably correct.  None of my sources identify the domme.

The movie opens with an Inspector from the gas board arriving at the front door of a house shared by two young women.  An attractive brunette answers the door but she tries to stall the Inspector until she can call her roommate.  The blonde roommate comes downstairs wearing only a red nightie and the Inspector tells then that are irregularities with their gas bill.  It turns out that the girls have bypassed the gas meter to avoid paying their bill.  After some grovelling, the girls decide that corporal punishment is preferable to dealing with the police so the Inspector goes to bring the ‘standard gas company issued equipment’ from her van.


The blonde is first over the Inspector’s knee for a long OTK spanking, her panties come down part way through but otherwise the spanking is ‘routine’.  After the spanking the Inspector tells the blonde to remove her nightie and stand in the corner. Then it’s the brunettes turn, she complains more than her roommate but the spanking is similar and her skirt and panties also come off during the course of the spanking.

Now it’s time to move on to the next stage of the punishments using the equipment provided by the gas company starting with a common leather paddle followed by a narrower but longer paddle. 

The blonde takes her place over the spanking horse and receives nearly 200 swats with the first paddle.  There may have been some doubling but I don’t think there was a lot.  The brunette is next.  She receives a noticeably shorter padding with the first paddle but she remains over the horse for about 80 swats with the second paddle which seems to be a more formidable implement.  The blonde goes back over the horse for her session with the second paddle and again she seems to receive a more severe paddling than her roommate.

  
Finally the Inspector brings out the cane but, before starting, she tells the brunette to take off her top.  The blonde is first and she receives 16 hard strokes of the cane (there may have been some doubling but I don't think there was much if any) then the brunette follows here over the horse for a caning that seems both longer and harder.  The movie ends rather abruptly with the two girls starting to get dressed.
There are a few minor technical problems.  The sound levels are inconsistent and there is some background noise in the opening scene. The lighting is a little dark in a few scenes and the small size of the room limits the camera positions.  Otherwise the technical quality is good for the time.

I liked this movie but it doesn’t rise to the level of my all-time favorites due to one major weakness.For me, all it would have required to make this a great video was a few more face shots during the paddling and caning scenes; that would be easy today and it wouldn’t have been much more difficult in 1999.  Even without that, it is a movie worth watching and I have returned to it several times since I first watched it.
