I love to be in Spain, to sit in the sun surrounded by pretty girls, drinking the local wine and eating food that puts the good old UK to shame but when I can do all that and attend the now famous World Spanking Party I am going to jump at the chance.
So there we are, a beautiful hotel in the heart of downtown Fuengirola, our room perfect and we are deciding what to wear for a spanking party. For me it did not much matter but my lady new she had to look her sexy, and most formidable best and so she did. The party venue was a distinctly upper class villa with umpteen rooms, a beautiful pool and with the added advantage of being very secluded.
The hosts, The London Tanner and his partner Only Real Princess greeted everyone warmly and made sure that we all knew the rules, just sensible things to keep the party running smoothly over the three days. Yes this was not just any old party but something very special and I have to say from the outset I am not really a fan of spanking parties in general but I was open to have my views changed. The guest list comprised spanking fans from all over the world, mostly from the UK and the USA but there were lovely people from Germany, France, Denmark, Holland, Canada, Spain and more I am sure.
The spanking fun was underway when we arrived and my Lady rushed off to start spanking and caning as many naughty folk as she could find who were silly enough to put themselves at her mercy. I took a time to look around the party venue and was pleased to see Pandora Blake there promoting her DVD’s, she was ably assisted by the lovely Nimue. Such a pity that we in the UK are not able to get our hands on real spanking DVD’s once again the nanny state looks after our welfare and say NO! Looking around there were a couple of well known faces also vending their wares and as I needed some new paddles and straps I spent some time choosing one or two from the lovely selection on show from Ouch Lovely guys selling a really good quality product.
By the time I returned the party was in full swing and I do mean swing! There were bare bottoms in every room, the sounds of spankings and whacking’s of canes coupled with the moans and groans of pleasure? All around people enjoying themselves, by about midnight there must have been upwards of 100 spankos there and all taking a full part. I noticed Spanking Sarah taking a very happy gentleman to task, that lady does know how to wield a cane. All this and it was just the first event, was I going to be able to stay the course? The answer is a very emphatic YES, I was determined to not miss a second of this party.
OOver the next couple of days there was a caning clinic, nice to see Pandora presenting her well spanked and caned bottom for even more of the same, a cold caning can’t be fun, even in the warmth of our Spanish villa but she did then take her turn at administering what looked to me like some very expert canings, . Then there was the very realistic court house scene where crimes real and imaginary were dealt with in what I considered to be a very painful but none the less exemplary way with the expert application of the prison strap and the senior cane. Great fun to watch but to be bent over that punishment bench maybe not so much.
Well it was just a party, and some, but when looked back at one remembers some of the other things that go into making a good time great, the beautiful villa, the absolutely amazing food provided by the hosts, a hog roast has to be my favourite alfresco meal, swimming in the warm evening sun, going to some amazing restaurants and bars, I do have a pretty hazy memory of staggering out of The Buddha bar in Benalmadena at around five AM and having to walk about a mile as my lady gave the taxi the wrong directions. The only downside to the party is that we have to wait two years for the next. Come on Mr London Tanner, you have changed my views on spanking parties so why keep me waiting so long for the next. If you want to keep abreast of the world spanking party activities there will I understand be a web site up pretty soon. At the moment you can take a look at the blog
It has been a busy week here. We have found ourselves childless this week so decided to hop across the Channel to pick up some booze! We got up really early on Monday morning (to be honest it was really still Sunday) and we haven’t stopped since. We got back late last night and as we had a shoot arranged for today we had to be up and out of 7am this morning. Still, it was absolutely worth it and I am sure that you will enjoy watching the new films with yet another lady we have found to make her spanking debut at our sites.
Ella Hughes has proven to be a real hit with you guys. She is an absolute star and I really enjoy giving her the punishment she needs. This week she is back at Spanking Sarah for the second part of her spanking interview. She has taken a good hard hand spanking and is eager to have some more! Now, I usually let new girls choose an implement from my vast toy bag. To be honest some will always go with the lightest one they think they can find. Not Ella! Ella was like a child in a sweet shop. She wanted to try them all. I told her she could pick four and so she reluctantly wheedled down her chooses.
Amongst the things she choose were a really heavy paddle and a nasty little wooden bath brush. Ella was more than happy with her chooses so I was more than happy to apply them to her already reddened cheeks. Ella is one of my all time favourite spanking models and if you watch the free clip you will see why.
Ella looked rather beautiful knelt in my chair with her bottom high in the air ready to receive punishment. I gave her a really hard whacking with each and every implement and she loved absolutely every moment of it. Ella really is a spankers dream. She adores the feel of leather and wood and takes so much. Her bottom was rather swollen and bruised after this punishment but she still had a smile on her face.
Another week, another fantastic spanking update for you at English Spankers. Most of you will know the wonderful Amelia Jane Rutherford but a lot of you will not be aware of the equally fantastic Jess. Jess has only ever made a few spanking films and we are lucky enough to be the only company she has shot for. Like Amelia she takes a real good whacking and our double shoot with these two girls produced some absolutely amazing material. Amelia and Jess play the part of a couple of Au Pairs rather well. They should be looking after their young charges but instead they are helping themselves to the booze and berating the way their employees treat them! Jess should be at the school picking up the kids but is having so much fun that she forgets! Ms Stern is far from impressed when she walks in on the pair of them boozing. Amelia Jane pleads innocence and tries to beat a hasty retreat but Ms Stern soon puts a stop to this. She informs this naughty Au Pair that she is as guilty as Jess and that if she does not stay and take her punishment then she will make a phone call to her employers and will ensure that she will not have a job nor a home to return to. Both girls are informed that they will be going over the knee for a hard hand spanking. Jess is not surprised, she admits to Amelia that her Boss has spanked her before and explains that it is probably easier to accept the punishment than to try and protest. Ms Stern is a very strict lady and will not be swayed. Both girls have done the wrong thing so both will face her wrath. Amelia is first over the knee for a harsh hand spanking and she is not impressed when her leggings and her panties are removed. Amelia and Jess both find themselves rather humiliated when their knickers are taken down and their bare bums spanked soundly, They are both rather red and sore as they are given a smacking that they will not forget in a hurry. At one stage both girls are over the knee at the same time and Ms Stern has not only a hard hand but a fast one as well! A blistering bare bottom spanking for two naughty girls which leaves them marked and in considerable pain. but will this be the end of their torment? Take a look at the free clip here
The world is full of surprises and the spanking world seems to hold just as many. Who would have thought that the UK’s premier spankee come spanker of young ladies has just opened a new web site featuring her taking her wicked way with lots of naughty men. Yes Sarah Spanks Men has launched and jolly good it is too. I have to say that I did join as I wanted to see the films, at the moment there are no free clips but I am assured that these are coming shortly.
At the moment there are only a small number of films plus some really horny POV clips featuring some of Sarah’s lady friends talking directly to camera. I did not think that would be for me but I was pleasantly surprised. Now what of the site, well the style and layout follow that of Spanking Sarah, well it makes sense, if you have a brand style that works then stick to it. The content is well described and the inside of the site is simple to navigate and contains the full films, the POV films and photo sets from the various shoots.
I understand there are lots more films to go up as the days progress plus there will be bonus content but she would not tell me what that will be, hmm. The join price is very reasonable at the moment, I am sure it will increase as the amount of content increases, Sarah said if you join now and maintain your membership then you have this low price for ever, makes good sense. The films are as with all the films produced by this lady of the very best quality, well thought out stories, a bit too real for me!
I do know a couple of the guys featured in the films, they have been on other sites but for the rest these are all new to the spanking scene but despite that they do all seem to take quite a thrashing from this very strict Sarah. If you are into this side of the spanking scene then I can strongly recommend you taking a look at Sarah Spanks Men
A former head teacher of a primary school spanked his wife as punishment for having an affair after drawing up pie charts to detail how much pain she had caused him. Graham Jones, 44, told his wife that she would receive eight blows one for each day he had known about her relationship.
Jones bent his wife over a freezer in their cellar and spanked her with a plimsoll before she escaped to the kitchen. There he told her she had four more hits to come and used a spatula to deliver them. Crying and screaming, Mrs Jones was left with bruising and reddening.
Jones admitted spanking his wife at Mold Crown Court in North Wales, but claimed she had consented to his behaviour. He received an eight month prison sentence, suspended for two years and was sent on a domestic violence course.The couple’s marriage had initially run into problems when Jones resigned as a head teacher and he had difficulty finding a job. It was alleged that he became controlling and argumentative and discovered his wife’s new relationship when she accidentally sent him a text message intended for her lover.
Jones then prepared pie charts detailing how much pain she had caused him and showing how much he blamed her and the other man. In court his lawyer said that Mrs Jones had sent her husband a text two days before the offence which indicated she was willing to engage in adventurous sexual behaviour. Leaving court Mr Jones said: “I don’t know what we are doing here. “Only 32 hours before hand I received a text from her telling me she had been naughty, deserved to be punished and she consented to spanking as she has done over the years. “But it is me which is made out to be the bad guy.” Oh the rich tapestry of life, will the truth ever out? A ‘Domestic Violence Course’, he needs to be taught? I don’t think so, but maybe he fell into a trap, maybe none of us ever really know the outcomes of certain behaviour, maybe it did start as a game, maybe he is not a violent man.
I understand that there are lots of people who do not understand what a judicial caning is and I offer the following update from Redstripe Films in the hope that it may make things clear. No? well it won’t but it’s a damn fine film anyway.
This is from Sandy, she is the lady who runs Redstripe. Now if you want to have your site mentioned here, or if you are having a spanking party or if you just have some spanking related news get in touch with us at Spanking News
Now I am not too sure just what a judicial caning is, I have to admit that I just hate being caned. Mr Stern does cane me occasionally when I have neglected my work in the office, I know that I may well deserve it and bend over and take it with the best grace I can. Now that is a straightforward punishment caning and is different from what is termed judicial. I suppose the judicial must be a lot harder and meant to really hurt. The film on my sight this week is just such a one, Susan, and this is actually a true story, was going to make a spanking film for my site, now she had been filming earlier that day for Spanking Sarah but she did not tell me or Mr Stern about this. Now he did have a phone call from Sarah who told him that Susan had been filming that very morning, so he examined her bottom and found that it was marked. So she had told a lie! Mr Stern decided that he could not punish her that day but did call Sarah and ask her if she would come to his location and deal with Susan. Sarah arrived and after talking to Susan decided that she was going to give her one of her special real hard canings and that’s what we have in this weeks film. It is hard, she did have to take quite a lot of strokes and I have to say I did end up feeling a bit sorry for her. Take a look at the free film clip here and don’t forget that in my members area I do have over 250 full length films covering every aspect of discipline
WHY SELF SPANKING. Well why not is the answer. As adults we do lots of other things to ourselves which are far more harmful, smoke, drink, cross the road, exercise! So it seems to me that a little bit of self spanking or as is the case in the film I am using to illustrate, self paddling. That a beautiful young girl feels the need to paddle her own bottom escapes me, I must send her my phone number then maybe she won’t want to paddle her own delicious bottom. Honesty has just started working for her new Boss. He works from home and has left her there whilst he pops up on some errands. Instead of doing her work like a good girl, she decides to have a little nose around the house. She takes a look in the drawers and is surprised to find a spanking paddle. Now, Honesty could have just put it back and forgotten about her find. Her Boss would have been no wiser and she could have just got on with her work. Instead this silly girl lets her curiosity get the better of her. She examines the paddle and smacks her own hand with it before hoisting up her skirt and trying the paddle out on her bottom. Honesty finds the self spanking quite exciting and gives herself quite a few slaps with it. In fact she is concentrating on what she is doing so much that she does not hear her Boss return. Before she notices he has been watching her self spank for some time. She is rather shocked when he eventually makes his presence known. Her Boss has found the whole thing rather horny but pretends to be cross in order to give her a dose of the paddle himself! Honesty is informed that seeing as she likes it so much he will make sure she gets it long and hard and on her bare bottom. Honesty soon goes from a nice sensual paddling to a hard thrashing on her tender young cheeks. She is soon rather red and marked and begs her Boss to stop. He has other ideas and carries on with the punishment of his naughty employee. Curiosity leads this young lady to get a blistering bare butted beating. Take a look at the free clip here.
Redstripe Films have a long running series starring Aunty Katie, better known as Katie Didit, it is centred on her House Of Correction wher young ladies who have offended the law in one way or another are sent for strict discipline. They all get a “welcome” spanking from Aunty Katie, they have to strip naked, she examines the girl to ensure she is not carrying drugs and then the girl, in this case Jess, goes over the spanking stool and gets what I consider to be one hell of a good spanking. I think that Sarah is now up to around Episode 21 and the series still looks good. It generally follows the girl through a series of misadventures and harsh punishments during their stay. Meet Jess. Jess is the latest recruit to be unfortunate enough to join the House of Correction. This naughty girl was caught shoplifting and now she must pay the price. Jess seems to think that she is going to be in for an easy ride but she soon realises that Auntie Katie does not stand any nonsense from naughty girls. As soon as she arrives at the house she is forced to strip and subjected to a search to ensure that she has not brought any contraband into the house. Every inmate at The House of Correction gets spanked the minute they walk into the house. This serves a few purposes, it lets the naughty girls know that their stay will be a pain filled one and it encourages better behaviour. Auntie Katie has a hard and heavy hand and she puts it to good use. Jess finds herself naked and vulnerable when she is placed over the spanking stool. There is no warm up to this spanking, It starts off hard and fast and continues at the same pace. This is a punishment and is made to feel like one. Jess soon has a bright red bottom and you can see her visible signs of distress. The poor girl really was not prepared for the treatment she is receiving. Auntie Katie makes sure that the spanking is a prolonged and incredibly painful one. Jess endures smack after painful smack on her pert bare bottom. Take a look at the free clip here
A Kansas lawmaker is proposing a bill that would allow teachers, caregivers, and parents to spank children hard enough to leave marks. Current Kansas law allows spanking that doesn’t leave marks. Rep. Gail Finney, a Democrat from Wichita, says she wants to allow up to 10 strikes of the hand and that could leave redness and bruising. The bill also would allow parents to give permission to others to spank their children, but it would continue to ban hitting a child with fists, in the head or body, or with a belt or switch.
Finney says she wants to restore parental rights, and improve discipline. But Rep. John Rubin, chairman of the House Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee, says he isn’t sure the committee will even consider the bill.
No this is not a joke it’s for real, is this a good idea and could we see it extended throughout Europe? Lets hope not, I for one have never been in favour of smacking children nor anyone else who does not want to be smacked.
Well why do they want to feature in spanking films? I have been on a number of shoots now where the girls are all first timers, when asked what they do for a day job they tell me they are glamour models or in one case a fashion only model. Spanking films and the taking part in is something way outside their usual activity. Most say on first being asked that they do it for the money, I do not altogether believe that as they will usually add “and I like being spanked”.
It seems that spanking between couples is now the thing to do, I am all in favour of that. It used to be known as the perversion of a certain class of gentleman who, after being spanked and caned at his public school either took a craving for that into his everyday life or turned 180 degrees and decided he wanted to hand out the spankings. So, I deduce after not a lot of research that the reason our lovely glamour models are getting into the spanking film business is because they like it, Oh and they do get paid. It’s a win Win situation
The World is full of naughty girls whose behaviour deserves a good hard spanking. Unfortunately, the laws of our land often prohibit us from able to administer these badly behaved ladies with the beatings they need. Fortunately we can all escape into Spanking Land where naughty girls get their just deserts. In fact, in spanking land, sometimes really good girls get spanked as well.
Ashleigh falls into the first category. Ashleigh is a very naughty girl. She has invited a photographer around to her house and agreed to have some rather dirty photographs taken. She is happy to pose topless for payment and of course, the photographer is soon busy snapping away. Unfortunately she has forgotten to mention that she lives with her Aunt and that her Auntie will not be impressed to discover that her home is being used in this way.
Obviously Auntie walks in and she is furious! She gives the photographer a flea in his ear before throwing him out. Her niece seems to think that the situation is really funny but she soon realises that Auntie means business when she gets hauled over the knee. Her short denim shorts offer her little protection from her Aunties hard and heavy hand. She is spanked like a naughty little girl over the knee.
Ashleigh is soon close to tears. Not only is her punishment painful, but it is humiliating for her to be treated this way. The spanking is prolonged and it does not take ling for her poor bum to be bright red and feel very very sore. But will she learn her lesson? Take a look at the free clip here
Our Spanking Mansion series has proven to be very popular. It seems that a lot of you like the darker, more edgier films we are making for it. In most instances the ladies who have appeared in these films have been close friends of ours – in honesty you could not make these type of films with strangers. A hell of a lot of trust and respect is involved when you push the boundaries as far as we do and this film is no different. Imogen D’Arcy and Sarah Stern originally wanted to make a hard hitting real domestic discipline film. They then hit upon the idea of just how awful it would be if one partner wanted to be involved in a cp relationship and the other didn’t. Add some infidelity into the mix plus a rather unstable girlfriend and you have the ultimate betrayal. Imogen had wanted out but kindly agreed to just one more night. How she has lived to regret that. Sarah does not want to let her go and is furious with her for cheating and trying to leave. She has drugged Imogen and decided that she will act out all of her sordid fantasies. Sarah loves Imogen but hates her as well and in this part of the story alternates between being furious and beating her ex and wanting to kiss and her. Imogen is just terrified. She is tied to the bed unable to move and is being subjected to some rather sadistic and painful treatment. Sarah has also realised that she can never know let Imogen go without the girl getting her arrested and so ponders out loud about just how exactly she can deal with her. Imogen is left in no doubt that she may not get out of this situation alive. She is scared, hungry, and in terrible pain. Sarah not only punishes Imogen on her bottom but on her hands and breasts. The beating is given without mercy and Imogen is soon in floods of tears. Just how will this end? Take a look at the free clip here
It has been a long time coming but Sophie Parker has eventually got her just deserts at The House of Correction. Since she entered the House she has been making Amelia Janes life an absolute misery. She has bullied her endlessly and ensured that the poor girl has been beaten by Auntie Katie at every opportunity. They do say that cheats never prosper but I think we were all beginning to think that this wicked girl would get away with her bad behaviour. This week Mr Stern decides to intervene. He has noticed how quiet and withdrawn young Amelia is and decides to have a chat with her and find out what is troubling her. Amelia is initially to scared to confide in him but after some persuasion she tells him the whole sad and sorry tale. Mr Stern is horrified! The House of Correction is supposed to improve young ladies behaviour, not give them a platform to bully and cause further mishap. He decides that he will deal with Sophie Parker himself and that she will be taught a very painful lesson indeed. Being a man of the cloth he decides to hear what Sophie has to say about the matter and calls her in for a chat. As soon as Sophie realises that Amelia has told on her she jumps to the defence and actually attacks Amelia and tries to throttle her. Poor Amelia is powerless to defend herself and Sophie has to be dragged off the terrified girl and restrained. A furious Mr Stern scolds Sophie and decides to punish her there and then. In order to cause not only pain but humiliation, he decides to allow Amelia to watch. Sophie is hauled over the knee and her knickers are pulled down and her bottom is given rather a sound spanking which leaves it bright red and sore but this is just the start of her ordeal. Mr Stern decides that the best punishment for this naughty girl would be a hard dose of the cane. Sophie is made to kneel in the sofa with her bottom stretched tight and she is forced to endure stroke after painful stroke of his cane. This leaves her bottom bruised and welted and will hopefully improve her appalling behaviour. Take a look at the free clip here
I love this new film at English Spankers and I am pretty sure that you will too. Ella Hughes is a brand new model but she is not now to spanking. This lovely nineteen year old has wanted to be spanked all her life and as soon as she came of age, she made sure that she was! Ella and Sarah seem to have a great on screen chemistry and judging by their tweets, they seem to get on just as well in real life. Ella just loves being dominated by an older lady and Sarah just loves to beat her so it is a fantastic arrangement. This film is a hard hitting one. Ella wants to be beaten hard and so Sarah always makes sure she gets exactly what she wants. Not only can Ella take a good whacking but she can act as well and really gets into any role she is given. Ella plays the part of a naïve college student who has been failing her grades. Her Tutor realises that this is the type of girl who she can take advantage of and does so quite wickedly. She forces Ella to strip naked and endure rather a hard beating which includes some overtly sexual touching as well. This film can be viewed on our English Spankers site or if you prefer to buy individual films, you can do so by visiting our Clips4sale site where this film along with hundreds of others can be purchased without taking out a membership. In fact, at the moment this film is the best selling spanking clip on the entire clips4sale site! It is rather hard hitting and hot so I can see why. Poor Ella is used and abused by her Tutor who has blackmailed her into being involved in a sadistic relationship. The girl has been told that if she does not accept her teachers advances then she will be forced to leave her course. What can she do apart from endure the rather lecherous and incredibly painful treatment she is given? She is beaten with a variety of implements including a tawse, strap and paddle and beaten relentlessly. She is left well marked and sore and feeling rather sorry for herself.

The latest film for RedStripe and The Spanking Mansion is not for the light hearted. Imogen and I have shot together on quite a few occasions and I would describe her as a good friend which is why I was able to make such a dark, hard hitting film. Imogen cried real tears and when you watch it, you will understand why.
Imogen’s lover is now showing just how nasty and cruel she can be. Imogen refuses to continue with their relationship but because she is secured to the bed she can’t stop the painful assault on her body. She is whipped on her breasts and bottom and between her legs, she is then subjected to a hard paddling which brings her to tears. RedStripe Films

SoundPunishment recently went to film bad-girl Anastasia being punished by her partner.

Severe retribution is carried out onto her bare bottom by her partner when she gets home! This wanton young lady is soon over his knee getting the hard bare-bottom spanking and slippering she deserves.

The new Spanking Mansion films from Redstripe have proven to be very popular. These films are really edgy and completely different to the normal ‘run of the mill spanking film’ They will not appeal to everyone as the punishments are not only on the bottom and are often of a harsher nature. So far we have filmed these special films with Pandora Blake, Suzanne Smart, Nicki Montford and Aleesha Fox. It takes a special kind of lady to make a Spanking Mansion film and I am very pleased to add Imogen D’Arcy to that list.
We have filmed with Imogen on a lot of occasions and would class her as one of our Spanking friends. To make these types of films there has to be trust between the participants. We asked Imogen if she would like to make a Spanking Mansion film and after watching the ones already available she was more than happy to go ahead. As Sarah and Imogen had filmed together before it was felt that the two of them could and would make a realistic film and we are very pleased with the outcome.
Imogen plays the part of a girl who is sick to death of her controlling Girlfriend. Sarah has constant demands for kinky sex and Imogen is not happy with this at all. In fact, she has found herself a new Girlfriend and plans to leave Sarah. Sarah is not used to being left and tries to change her mind. When she realises that this is not going to happen she tries a different tact. She begs Imogen to stay with her for just one more night. When Imogen says yes she could not have known just how life changing her kind deed was going to be.
When Imogen awakes it is to find that she has been drugged, stripped and tied to the bed. She has been gagged and the terrified girl suddenly realises just how unstable her Ex is. Sarah is out for revenge. She has read all the texts on Imogens phone and knows that she had been replaced. She is furious at the betrayal and is going to make sure Imogen pays a heavy price.
A terrified Imogen is forced to listen to her rants and is unable to move, speak or beg. Sarah produces various implements which she plans to use on her defenceless victim. Apart from the real pain Imogen is feeling is the helplessness. Sarah has no plans to let her go and is going to make her life an absolute misery. Imogen is whipped on her legs, breasts, bottom and back with a variety of nasty spanking tools. Her eyes fill up with tears and if she could she would beg for her torment to stop. A dark and twisted film. Take a look at the free clip here
