I hate people who rip off other people’s web sites or intellectual copyright but sometimes it just has to be done. Below I have repeated the latest E-Mail from  The Open Rights Group. If you do not already subscribe I suggest you get your hand in your pocket and pay the miserable pittance it costs to help protect your rights.

The information contained below may shock some of you, try putting the names of some of your favourite websites into the Blocked search and see what your ISP is up to. The tell them NOT IN MY NAME NO!

Reprited with thanks to OPR

ORG’s censorship detection tool Blocked is rolling out a major upgrade, making it better than ever at documenting the damage done by inaccurate ISP filters. You’ll be shocked to see just how many ordinary websites are affected, it’s ridiculous!


Test the new Blocked!

Often switched on by default, these blunt filters harm countless businesses and damage free speech online. Local pub websites, LGBT support resources and counselling services are among the innocent pages caught in automated dragnets meant to block illegal content like child porn and extremist propaganda.

By reporting sites on Blocked you’ll help ORG gather evidence of thousands of wrongful blocks and raise awareness of this quiet disaster. We’ve added improved searching capabilities and made it easy to complain directly to ISP’s to hold them accountable. We count on user feedback to refine this tool, so if you notice any bugs or have suggestions for improvements please raise a ticket on our feedback page.

Blocked is made possible because ORG activists run probes on ISP networks throughout the UK and Europe. The more we have running the better, so we are always looking for people to help by running their own probes. We’ll send you the equipment and the set up is easy.


Test the new Blocked!

It is important to protect citizens and minors from Illegal or obscene content, but filters that throw out the good with the bad are not the answer. Help ORG document and expose wrongful censorship by reporting sites on Blocked!

Pretty shocking dont you think! What this means, is, well it’s only porn so it’s not serious, take another look, it’s not only porn though it’s serious enough if that’s all it was, no, what it will mean is that anytime the government see something they don’t like they can get your ISP to block it, so, once again, tell them NOT IN MY NAME NO!

Next year the government are planning to block, with the help of your ISP all websites they have decided they or their agents don’t like. Are you going to put up with that? Think about where it starts and where it ends, do you really want state sponsored censorship. I don’t.

The end of her spanking journey

All good things must come to an end and so it goes with the film appearances of our lovely lady spankees. I was privileged at the week end to be invited to witness the last films being made featuring Allison, one of the more popular mature housewife spanking models.

During the filming she was interviewed about her life in the business and about the films she has made over the years. Now this is a lady who is not really into spanking, indeed she started her life in the business making sex films and progressed to higher things from there. She says she really does not enjoy being spanked at all but she knows that she needs the feel of a hard hand on her bottom from time to time.

Asked about her likes, she did say she quite liked to be over the knee of a strong guy, held tight and have her panties removed for a spanking. It was just that she did not like the spanking. So why keep doing it? Well, the after spanking feeling was quite nice and she did confess to having reached a climax on more than one occasion whilst being spanked so, well maybe that’s reason enough.

The shoot was fascinating, shot on a GoPro of all cameras with just natural light in the lovely room used for the filming, the was done to give the least intrusive effect, little editing as there is only one camera position and a very natural look to the film. More like watching a wife being disciplined by her husband in the privacy of their own home.

The films will be out on Redstripe Films in the New Year but till then I do have the few stills taken from the shoot for you to enjoy.

Thanks Allison for all the years and all the happiness you have given so many people, me included.

A day on the film set

Oh the joys of being a spanking blogger, you get all sorts of invites and once again Sarah Stern invited me to a shoot and I was delighted to find the delectable Susanne Smart was working with Sarah, Mr. Stern, Katie Didit & Kodders.

As usual I had an amazing day and it amazes me just how much work goes into the making of the spanking films featured on Sarahs Site. It’s a long day, they started at around 10.00 and did not get through till around 16.00 with just the occasional stops for café and sandwiches.

They were filming another series of Unladylike Manor and the only disappointment that I had was that Sarah did not feature in any of the films but the lovely Susanne and Katie Didit were a great compensation. As usual in this series, Katie plays the housekeeper and Susanne the luckless maid. The first scene was to be a spanking scene and it was not long before Susanne found herself over Mr. Sterns capable knees. He spanked her first of all over her tight black knickers, good, full sized ones, not those silly little ones we see so much of these days. The knickers came down and I was looking full onto the beautiful bare bottom of Susanne the maid, her uniform skirt framing her perfectly. Now this lady can take a good hard spanking and I can tell you this is just what she got. This continued till she was bright red and I do have to say, she did not seem too eager to get off the comfortable knees she was laying across, I rather think she was finding the whole thing quite enjoyable.

Next a complete scene change as Mr. Stern Initiates Susanne into his latest mad idea, a sect formed to save fallen ladies. Well, someone has to pick them up I guess and Stern seems the ideal guy. There is of course an initiation process to be gone through and he uses Susanne to work out just what that should be.

I am not able to give away to much  here but as you will see from the pictures it does involve, a bizarre costume or two, some leather paddles, a martinet and a nasty cane. I found it utterly amazing how Susanne, who I am sure wont mind me saying is not the youngest model in the business, gets so much obvious enjoyment from the filming and the extreme amounts of pain she takes and at the same time is able to remember and to improvise all the dialog to keep the thing moving along at a great pace.

During one of the breaks she told me the reason she does the films is that she loves being able to get away from reality for a day and go into another world where as well as the hard work she also gets a certain satisfaction from the mechanics of making the films, the pain which she enjoys and the knowledge that here will be  a very good few films at the end of it all.

The films will now go for editing and post production and will be available on Sarah’s site early next year I believe. If you have not seen any of the previous episodes they are on the site so I do urge you to take a look at them and catch up with the story.

Ambrosia a painful day

I once again had the good fortune to be invited to witness a day’s shooting with the amazing Spanking Sarah. I would welcome invites from other producers, I do give you good publicity! so please contact me and give me some dates.

This was a great day and a very quick shoot with a lovely young lady called Ambrosia. She seemed quite nervous but over a cup of tea she began to relax and she told me this was her second shoot with Sarah and Mr. Stern. She reckoned that Sarah had by far and away the stronger arm, I was invited to try it out but declined, I had to sit for a long drive home.

It was planned to shoot four films and Sarah said she could get that done in about half a day. The setup was very professional, very modern lighting, small and powerful and a two camera set up. The camera man and director Remington Steel said that they no longer used the broadcast cameras they used to as the new smaller ones were easier to set up and move around the quite small location. Assistant camera man Kodders seemed to be a bit of a sound expert and set up an amazing array of recording devices, he wanted he said to get the very best  sound, every swish and thwack as he said.

The shoot had a central theme about a girl who sets out to work in a brothel but finds that she is not quite up to what her first customer requires from her.  The customer calls Miss Stern, the madam into the room and makes a complaint and well I’m sure you can guess what happens. Yes the poor girl gets a good dose of the paddle and although I was at the other end of the room I am sure I could feel the wind from the paddle strokes.

Not satisfied with that Sarah gets out a rather nasty looking cane and pointed to a very workmanlike spanking bench ordered poor Ambrosia over it. The young lady then had to take a real good hard caning. Boy, it was hard and it was accurate. It did look to me as though Ambrosia was in tears so I had a chat with her as soon as I could. I thought she would need time to recover but no, she was bubbling away and said she just loved it and although the cane was not her favorite she was more than happy with her session under it.

Sarah and the rest of the crew seemed happy with the whole shoot, it had taken around three and a half hours and they had made four films. Hard work, fast work but a real fun day. Everyone was easy going and knew what they had to do and I took a quick look back at some of the footage and I think it will be a  great little film.

I have some stills taken from the film itself below so enjoy. I think the film should be out on the 14th of the month over at Spanking Sarah

Age verification – more questions than answers – A serious look at whats happening

This excelent article is taken from the blog by feminist pornographer and activist Pandora Blake. She  has been at the fore front of the fight against censorship of allkinds. We recomend her far seeing articles to all who have an interest in the spaking and adult scenes. We support the Open Rights Group and would ask that you take a look at their website and if possibel contribute.

Since the Digital Economy Act passed in April, age verification is coming to the UK – and the government have announced a deadline of April 2018. Thanks to the combined campaigning efforts of myself and various groups, we managed to get an amendment passed which averted the worst case scenario regarding prohibited content. But with web blocking still in place as a potential sanction, and no safeguards for user privacy, the Act still represents bad news for UK internet freedom.

I’m not the only one concerned about this. The Open Rights Group are also worried about the consequences of this badly-worded new law. This month I’ve had meetings with Executive Director Jim Killock and Legal Director Myles Jackman about age verification and what we can do about it. ORG have a long history campaigning for digital rights, and I’ve been a member for over ten years. We’ll working together over the coming months to campaign on age verification and privacy, alongside my work with Backlash and as an independent voice.

I joined ORG in meeting Chris Ratcliff from the Digital Policy Alliance, the cross-party group consulting to the Government on the age verification policy, and also with a representative from the DCMS (the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport – the ‘digital’ has been recently added), the branch of the civil service who are responsible for implementing it. The meetings were useful in allowing me both to make my concerns known, and ask questions to improve my understanding of the situation. Although I learned a lot, overall it seems that as far as age verification is concerned, there are still more questions than answers. 

The process of implementing AV

All websites visible by UK viewers have to have AV installed by April 2018. For a new tech policy to be implemented this is an incredibly short time frame. This problem becomes worse when it’s revealed that none of the details are yet in place that will tell people how AV is going to work, or what they need to do to comply.

The Act being passed is just the first stage; there’s now a schedule of events that need to take place before anyone can comply. Even having talked to the DCMS, made careful notes, and re-read the text of the law just now, I’m still a bit confused about exactly what the process is. But my best current understanding of the schedule is as follows:

This all adds up to a lengthy bureaucratic and Parliamentary process, and frankly I find it doubtful that it will be complete before the end of the year. That doesn’t leave people much time at all to comply with an April 2018 deadline.

The DCMS told me in person that the first step is for them to draw up guidance for the regulator. I can’t find reference to this in the law, unless it’s the guidance mentioned in 14 (2) specifying the “circumstances in which material is or is not to be regarded as made available on a commercial basis”.  As I understand it, the DCMS need to lay out how the regulation is going to work, what the regulator’s powers and responsibilities will be, which sites will fall under the scope of the law, and what process the regulator will have to follow in order to be in line with the law. This needs to be approved by Parliament, which is currently in its summer recess; therefore this step can’t be completed until after Parliament reopens in the Autumn.

It doesn’t make sense for the new age verification regulator to be designated until after the guidance has been approved specifying what their role will be; otherwise the regulator won’t know what they’re signing up for. The British Board of Film Classification have been tipped as the regulator-in-waiting, but they don’t have any authority until they’re officially appointed.

A lot of people have questions about how the regulation is going to be enforced and what they need to do to comply. But until the guidance has been published and the new regulator has been appointed, no-one can answer them. This is pretty inconvenient for people who are keen to crack on with implementing age verification.

These uncertainties around the regulatory guidance and the identity of the regulator are massive obstacles when it comes to figuring out how age verification is going to work in practice. It’s absolutely ludicrous that people are expected to comply with age verification by next April when there are still months of bureaucracy ahead before we know exactly what will be considered compliant. Installing age verification on a website is not an overnight process: many site owners are going to have to overhaul their websites considerably, moving all material classifiable as 18 or above  behind age checks, shopping around for the best and most affordable age verification solutions (which is tricky when very few age verification systems have been launched yet, and most are still in development), and installing the requisite software. All of it is going to take time, effort and money. And yet, we might only find out what’s required a couple of months before the deadline.

Sites which install age verification systems which the regulator doesn’t consider compliant will be penalised just as badly as sites which don’t bother to install AV at all – making it all the more important that this information is published in time.

The notification process, sanctions and penalties

The law has a whole section on financial penalties, and yet I had it from the DCMS in person during our meeting that there are “no plans to give the regulator the power to issue fines”. Seemingly this is because the BBFC don’t have the experience or resources to apply fines, and it doesn’t  look like a second “enforcement regulator” (as was mooted during the Parliamentary debates) is going to be designated. But until the guidance has been published, we can’t know for sure. This is a massive issue for UK site owners, and official, published guidance on exactly what penalties are at stake is needed as soon as possible.

It seems that the notification process will be as follows:

  • The AV regulator identifies a site as falling within their scope, and classifies it to establish that the content on it would be considered 18 or higher.
  • The AV regulator assesses the AV systems in place on the site, if any.
  • If the site has insufficient AV in place, or if the AV used is not considered compliant by the regulator, or the regulator notifies the site owner and gives them a deadline to comply.
  • If the site owner has not complied by the deadline, the regulator may contact the site’s payment services providers (eg credit card processors) to ask them to withdraw services from the site, thereby cutting off the site’s source of income. The regulator may also contact ‘ancillary service providers’ such as server hosts, domain name registrars, and advertisers who provide income to the site owner.
  • Payment and ancillary service providers are not obliged by law to fulfil the regulator’s requests – whether they do so is voluntary. (This is because many of these services will be provided by overseas companies, who are not under the legal authority of the UK age verification regulator.) However, credit card companies and billing providers have previously expressed their willingness to co-operate, as it is in many of their terms and conditions that material on the sites they provide billing for must be legal in their country of origin.
  • If these measures fail, the regulator may notify any UK Internet Service Provider and require them to prevent UK internet users from accessing the non-compliant website(eg by adding the site to a block list). The ISP has a duty to fulfil this requirement which is enforceable in civil proceedings.
  • Even if AV is in place, if the site contains any extreme pornographic material, the regulator may contact ISPs and require them to block the site.

With web blocking looming large as a sanction, and no information yet available about how to comply, this is a pretty worrying situation for most website owners. A lot of people are asking me what they need to do to stay within the law, and not only can I not answer those questions, no-one else can either – at least not until the regulator has been appointed and the requisite guidance has been produced.


The Act gives the regulator a fair amount of discretion in how it goes about enforcing age verification. For example, section 26 (1) of Part 3:

The age-verification regulator may, if it thinks fit, choose to exercise its powers […] principally in relation to persons who, in the age-verification regulator’s opinion—

(a) make pornographic material or extreme pornographic material available on the internet on a commercial basis to a large number of persons, or a large number of persons under the age of 18, in the United Kingdom; or

(b) generate a large amount of turnover by doing so.

How many websites will the AV regulator include in their scope? The BBFC only have a few staff members available to regulate online porn. In order to regulate each website, they first need to classify it to determine whether it “makes material available which would be classified as 18 or higher”. The BBFC need to analyse each site to determine not only its commercial status, but also how they would classify it before they know whether it falls under their jurisdiction or not. This is no small task.

Perhaps as a result of these limited resources, the chief executive of the BBFC, David Austin, has said that only tens of sites would be targeted:

“We would start with the top 50 and work our way through those, but we would not stop there. We would look to get new data every quarter, for example. As you say, sites will come in and out of popularity. We will keep up to date and focus on those most popular sites for children.”

Given their small taskforce, it would seem sensible for the BBFC to prioritise, and start with the sites which are demonstrably most visited by under 18s. But there’s nothing in the law to compel the AV regulator to take this proportionate approach. The previous online porn regulator, ATVOD, certainly didn’t; they seemed to disproportionately target femdom sites, particularly those owned by people critical of the organisation, regardless of how few under-18s were accessing those sites.

The Open Rights Group submitted a Freedom of Information request to see the correspondence between Mindgeek and the BBFC, which showed that Mindgeek have been putting pressure on BBFC via private emails to regulate all the four million sites on Sky’s adult content block list, and block any sites that are non-compliant by the deadline by default. It would be great for Mindgeek if every other adult site on the web were regulated, because their tube sites almost certainly will be, and they don’t want to be the only ones. Blocking the competition is an easy way to increase market dominance. Under the ATVOD regime there were noted examples of site owners reporting their competitor’s websites so that their competitor would get regulated and they wouldn’t, giving themselves a business advantage. If this kind of game-playing was permitted by the AV regulator, it would be an unjust and ineffective implementation of the law.

Mindgeek’s request sounds silly because it is. There’s no way they can co-opt the UK AV regulator to block the entire adult internet. Smaller sites which don’t rely on a known brand URL can easily change domain names and IP address to avoid detection, or setting up multiple mirrors. New sites start up every day, and catching them all is a Pokémon game the regulator can’t win.

With web blocking on the table, the stakes are high. I know first hand how damaging it is to have your business taken offline. Even after winning my appeal, the harm caused by a ten month downtime was not survivable. One of the conditions for appointing an AV regulator is that arrangements for appeals must be in place, and handled by a person “sufficiently independent of the age-verification regulator”. So that, too, needs to be pinned down before the regulator can be appointed; until then, we don’t know who will be handling appeals or how they will work.

I’m fear that we might end up in a situation where small business owners acting in good faith try to comply, but perhaps misunderstand the rules or don’t implement them in the right way – maybe simply don’t have the technical know-how to do it, or the money to afford someone to help them. Without guidance enforcing a proportionate approach, we risk these sites getting blocked; while other site owners who are being savvy and conniving get away with avoiding regulation, even if their sites are easier to find, and more accessed by under-18s.

There is a chance to prevent this. If the DCMS were to produce guidance that requires the regulator to take a proportionate response, and focus their attention on the most visited websites most accessed by under-18s in order to have the most impact, that would improve matters a lot. My meeting with the DCMS reassured me that they understand these concerns, but it’s now up to them to produce some sensible guidance.

What makes a great film

What makes a great film, well obviously we are talking spanking and related subjects, but for the purpose of this report I want to look at a new caning film. First you need to find the right cast members, the top, well Sarah Stern or Spanking Sarah will do nicely, the subjects, pick some of the prettiest around at the moment, say Jess and Tindra Frost and that gives a good basis.

Next you need a story, how about a couple of naughty senior girls who have hit upon a rather silly way to make a lot of money quite quickly. They have a bet with the rest of the girls in the school that they will be the very first girls in that school to be caned. Yes that is stupid but there we have it. The story develops and it does not take long before they are indeed told by their headmistress that they will be caned but here is where the shock sets in. The caning will not be carried out by their rather kindly old headmistress but by a sports teacher from another school who has a fearsome reputation and is well versed in the art of issuing canings.

There you have it, everything in place and the girls are duly sentenced to 48 strokes of the cane on bare bottoms, carried out in a very austere punishment room whilst they are bent over a caning stool. Now I did say I wanted to point out what makes a great film and it is of course all these things plus the two camera shooting, the editing which makes a seamless event which flows along and really does bring out the great acting from all the girls as well as the incredible sound which isolates the breathing of the girls and the swish and thwack of the cane. I especially like the excellent and sympathetic montage at the end of the film which is a bit of a trade mark of the film maker Remington Steel.

The film Is being released on Spanking Sarah’s web site and is also available on her clips site. I understand that there are in fact two versions. One is the natural edit and the other a special edit which shows each cane stroke twice, once with the view of the bottom and then immediately with the face view of each stroke. I rather like the sound of this. These two complete versions will be available to Sarah’s members to download as individual complete films or on her clips site as complete films. So, do take a look, this is the best caning film I have seen in a long while and well worth the price of membership.

Something for nothing in the spanking world

Thanks to Best British Spanking for this post:
Well I never give up looking for something that is good, free and worth having in the spanking world, well that’s the only world I live in! At last I have found something that comes pretty close. I have reviewed Caned On Line on here previously, its a very new site featuring only caning scenes from across several sites.

It, was always quite cheap to join, well, very cheap really but now there is a way to get a free membership. If you join English Spankers or Spanking Sarah, you can if you wish claim a free membership to Caned On Line. Now I think that’s pretty amazing and the only time I have seen a genuine free offer of this type.

You can get this offer from any of the websites above or from Strand Video so I don’t know how long it will last so get along and take advantage of this very generous offer.

Redstripe Films

So many websites with so much fantastic spanking content that to write about just one is not easy. I have however picked out one I really do like. REDSTRIPE FILMS is run by a housewife called Sandy and whilst she does not do so much filming these days she still makes sure that the site features some very different content.

Focusing mainly on the older lady and those who maybe a little “different” Sandy says that for a while the site did lose its way but she is now getting it back on track. Well I can tell you it is packed with some of the very best films around. I am particularly fond of the older lady, the mature housewife and the enthusiastic amateur spankee. She features a number of films straight from the husbands of some of the ladies and also a good selection of those with ladies who maybe only made just the one film

There are also a good number of sex and spanking films, I know that some people don’t like to mix the two, indeed unless it is an intrinsic part of the story I tend to feel a bit that way as well. I am pleased to say though that she seems to get the mix just right.

There is also a section inside the site called the Spanking Mansion. Now this I really do love, it features the more way out and inclusive side of the CP scene. With some excellent stories from Nicky Montford, Aleesha Fox and my favourite Suzanne Smart. This is one amazing lady and I would love to see a site dedicated just to her. If you have not seen any of her films then it is well worth the cost of joining just to see her in some incredible spanking action. She is typical of the sort of lady featured on this site but she goes the extra mile. Writing most of her own scripts she experiences all the nasty painful things she wants to.

Sandy manages to find those ladies who really are naughty and cheeky and I would say that the update this week features one such. Rachael is really bratty and whilst she has featured in a few films she has not been over exposed. Sandy has three of her films lined up, starting this week with her playing a naughty schoolgirl, well very naughty as you will see. She ends up with a hard spanking and I think it was well deserved. I think that just for the natural naughtiness of Rachael and the excellent spanking action you should take a look.

So, an excellent site packed with full length films and pictures at a very affordable price. Get along and take a look.

Caned On Line

It’s always good to see a new website these days with so many having to go out of business. This one however is quite different from the usual, it is VERY niche! Yes as you will have gathered from the name it features caning films and pictures only.

Now I have it on good authority from those who make films that the ones that are the most watched are the caning films, these are the ones that are most asked for by the members of sites. So, what does this site have. For a start in the free area it has a bright, attractive, clear and easy to follow design, with pictures to represent the films and a short description to follow each. These days in common with most sites you will not find free clips on the outside of the site, this is just to keep them away from those who should not be looking, but I can tell you the quality of the films is excellent and everything you would expect. Inside the members area there are a number of different sections for films, pictures and one for bonus content. This I understand will cover films from amateurs, pictures that don’t quite fit the spec of the site and most important some extra long bonus films. These will be compilations and can run for in excess of 60 mins. I hope you have a good broadband speed as these are in very high quality.

The films are sourced from across the range of the Strand group of sites and also some that do not appear on any sites at all so a real mixed bag. The subject matter ranges from domestic punishment to secretaries, uniforms including nurses and school and some good double caning sequences. I have to say though I am very keen on the longer films, it’s great to be able to download one that has maybe six sequences on it with just the caning scenes. The cost of all this? Well more than reasonable at only around £8.00 per month.

So there, please hop along and take a look see, it’s called

Please read the many earlier articles so that you know just what your MP is doing in YOUR name. Dis he or she ask you? Ask them, tell them you do not want this bill.

                                                                                    Almost 25,000 people have signed our petition calling on Parliament to reject censorship of legal content.

In the Digital Economy Bill, the BBFC  would be able to block adult websites that don’t verify the age of their users. No privacy safeguards are in the Bill. UK citizens risk having their sexuality and sexual interests leaked, hacked or exploited.
                                                                                                       What makes this worse is that the proposals are unlikely to work or keep children safe online.

The House of Lords is looking at the Bill at the moment and will vote on it in the next couple of weeks. The UK is a small market for adult websites. Most foreign websites won’t enforce age verification.  So the BBFC will have a power to block potentially millions of non-compliant websites.

The Government says the BBFC will only use this power to block a small number of websites – perhaps 100 of the largest sites. But blocking 100 adult sites won’t prevent under 18s from accessing adult content. There will be plenty of other sites for them to access.
                                                                                                          Help us get the message out that the UK’s children need education, not censorship, to keep them safe online.
Can you sign our petition against the censorship of legal content? Once you’ve signed it, could you share the petition with your friends too?

Inside the government’s mad plan to catalogue every video on the Internet

This is taken from an article written for  The New Statesman by leading lawyer Myles Jackman

The plan is unworkable and troublingly authoritarian, says Myles Jackman

Imagine a government scheme to catalogue and classify every single video on the web.

But you don’t need to imagine: that’s the bizarre proposal being put forward by Theresa May’s government in the Digital Economy Bill, which reached committee stage in the Lords this week.

The Digital Economy Bill proposes that online video should be classified just as films are now, and by the same people – the British Board of Film Classification.

According to the BBFC’s annual report for 2015, the board classified 983 films for distribution in the UK, and 1,143 hours of online content for video-on-demand.

To put this in context, hundreds hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. The demand that the BBFC should be able to make a judgment on the vast amount of video uploaded to a vast range of sites across the world is extremely ambitious.

As David Austin of the BBFC tactfully put it in a letter to Joanna Shields, the minister for Internet Safety and Security, “the internet is constantly evolving and inevitably any initiative in this area needs to be multi-faceted and flexible.” Well quite.

How could this possibly work? Classification can’t simply be left to an algorithm, so we’re left with the prospect of a huge recruitment drive for people to sit around all day and decide what is and isn’t acceptable, as suggested by Open Rights Group New Government Jobs spoof adverts.

But let’s give the government the benefit of the doubt and suppose that this plan has been fully, scalably costed, and thousands of people across the country will be paid to watch and classify millions of hours of video and decide who’s allowed to watch it.

The next step is placing age verification on sites.

The bill states “A person must not make pornographic material available on the internet on a  commercial basis to persons in the United Kingdom except in a way that  secures that, at any given time, the material is not normally accessible by  persons under the age of 18.”

“Commercial basis” here includes free-to-access sites, and “pornographic material” is a phrase that covers a multitude of sins, from R18 content (of the type not to be supplied “other than in a licensed sex shop”) to video of which it is “reasonable to assume from its nature that it was produced solely or principally for the purposes of sexual arousal.”

There is no indication of how age verification will work. A basic option would be through credit cards but this would expose Internet users to greater risk of credit card fraud – nor would it take much for a young person to ‘borrow’ an adult’s card for the purpose of identification. Other proposals could mean that porn sites are creating databases of what sites are viewed by whom – essentially surveillance, with the potential added risk of accidental public disclosure.

Given the trail of leaks of personal data in the last few years, such as the Ashley Madison hack, is anyone comfortable with the idea of a record of every risque but legal site they have visited?

Given these hacks, you would think that the Bill would at least require that Internet users privacy is protected but there are no obligations to do this.

How can the British government impose age verification on the porn industry, especially as the majority of porn sites are based outside the UK? This was not adequately thought about in the first draft of the Bill but since an amendment has been added to give the BBFC the power to tell Internet Service providers to block sites that don’t comply.

So the BBFC could be in charge of a censorship regime overseeing the blocking of thousands of websites, whose content is perfectly legal, without a court order. Once this is in place to censor porn sites, how else could it be used?

Blog roundup

It has been a tough start to the year.  I really am not made for the Winter and I am in desperate need of some Sun.  Unfortunately, circumstances will not allow me to go back over to Spain until March and it seems such a long time away.   Despite ill health I have been busy shooting more content for our great sites and have some fantastic girls and guys lined up for your viewing pleasure for the next few months.  Some brand spanking new faces and some of your favourites have made a return.   I am particularly proud of our latest series on Spanking Sarah.  St Justs is a school with a difference.  I am educating the parents one spank at a time to try and ensure that their children behave.  If you haven’t already, go take a look.    If you don’t like to buy a site membership then please remember that all our films and some special compilations are available at Clips4Sale or Spanking Library.

We shot with a new model called Ambrosia on Saturday.  Ambrosia had never been spanked before but was keen to give it a try.  We loved filming with her and you will see a lot more of this lovely lady on our sites over the next few months.  She makes her debut at English Spankers this week.  Mr. Stern is a well-known disciplinarian and as well as punishing naughty housewives at the request of husbands it is not unknown for ladies to come to see Mr. Stern to take their very first steps into the spanking world. This is what happened in this story, Ambrosia had come to see Mr. Stern, she wanted to experience her first spanking but she did not know that Kodders was pretending to be Mr. Stern. He told her some story and soon she was over his knee getting her very first taste of a spanking from this impersonator. She did get spanked hard but justice would certainly come.

New Government Jobs

More on the campaign to stop the government implementing the digital economy bill, that iniquitous piece of legislation designed to close down the porn industry and to stop you as adults looking at perfectly legal content on the internet. As usual in cases in cases like this their chosen agents are the backward thinking BBFC and so thanks to the Open Rights Group for the information below.

We have launched a spoof recruitment campaign to highlight absurd proposals in the Digital Economy Bill, which will give the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) the power to classify and censor websites, just like they do for films.

The BBFC will decide if porn sites are checking and monitoring the age of their users. If they’re not, the BBFC can tell ISPs to block sites – even though their content is legal. The only problem is that the Internet is massive so the BBFC can’t be expected to do it all by themselves. So we’re running spoof adverts for Internet Censors, who can help the BBFC classify all of the adult content on the web.

The campaign launch coincides with the start of the committee stage for the Digital Economy in the House of Lords this week. Please share the campaign and sign our petition.

Please help us by linking to this news site, if possible place our button on your own web site, if you place it we will always link back to you. If you care about your freedom please help. Remember, they will start by banning porn but then what come next?

Blog Roundup

We previously posted some caning updates and some great pictures but did neglect to feature any men being caned, well so as not to be accused of discrimination we would like to make redress and publish this from Kodders blog  It’s pretty strong stuff but I understand that Sarah has no problem finding men who want to be dealt with in this way and, well why not? She has a fascinating site here and it’s packed with very good, well thought out sequences and with some lucky guys who obviously adore her. Thanks must go to Kodders who runs a good, informative blog and keeps it well updated. Please send me details of your blog and I will review it here.


Welcome back James to Sarah Spanks Men. Well it’s been a while, over a year in fact since James was last at the site and what better way to welcome him back in Sarah Stern style especially after Sarah checked and realised James has never received a cold caning on camera, which has given Sarah the perfect opportunity to deliver a severe cold caning on the bare bottom which will be a first for James. Next to chocolate this is one of Sarah’s most favourite things ever.

Sarah has chosen a cane which is fast becoming one on her more favoured heavier thuddy implements. it’s a Reformatory Kooboo Rattan 83cms in length and 12 mm in width with a straight handle. It’s a wonderful choice for this first time cold caning as demonstrated beautifully by Sarah as she begins to deliver the hardest strokes to James’s naked bottom. He really is feeling these strokes.

After ten strokes or so James’s bottom is turning a lovely shade of red. Sarah delivers the next three strokes in succession which makes James catch his breath, Sarah has a little chuckle to herself.

Sarah describes how wonderful caning is and how much enjoyment she gets from delivering a caning because we the subbies enjoy it so much too. I (Kodders) am in total agreement. I adore the cane and I adore the challenge of a cold caning and being caned by Sarah is one of the most amazing, challenging, fulfilling experiences. If you haven’t tried it, but you’ve thought about it, you must do it as soon as possible so you too can feel this utter satisfaction of total submission for everybody’s pleasure.

Went off on a slight tangent there, let’s get back to this wonderful scene.  Sarah continues her wonderful cane strokes towards the end of the scene there are more flurries of three, four and five strokes in very quick succession.

For the record as Sarah was curious as to how many strokes, not counting the lesser cane taps about half way through the films, Sarah delivered a total of 80 of the hardest and most wonderful cane strokes during this awesome cold caning scene. Hats off to both James and Sarah, a wonderful cold caning, and thank you both for a truly remarkable and enjoyable punishment film, and Sarah, you look absolutely amazing in your beautiful black lingerie, no wonder you have such a long line of willing male bottoms waiting to go over your spanking bench.
